Nexxus Hydrasleek Silken Smoothing Conditioner seems to be an uber light protein at first, in fact, the first thing the formula really does is moisturize the strands- however that is to be predicted by reading the ingredients.
However, it should be noted that this product is BUILDABLE! (Obviously, I’m a makeup girl too). It has been my experience that with some underperforming products, the length of time it is left on the tresses does not affect how well it works- it does not improve with applied time. However this product will act more and more like a protein treatment the longer it is left on. Used overnight, you’ve got a full protein treatment. Used for a few hours, you’ve balanced your tresses moisture/protein needs; even if you have used protein recently it is safe to use (Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth is not, for example). Anything less than that the conditioner is good to use if you want to condition but your hair is well moisturized but you do not want moisture overload.
Best Used For Recommendation:
Use for a few hours to balance your tresses’ moisture/protein needs; even if you have used protein recently it is safe to use
