Effective for detangling, even under disaster conditions--Before and after pics included.Sooo...I had a real nightmare of matted knots on my head. My hair is baby fine, very fragile, poker straight, and very thick. My sleep bonnet went missing, my brushes went missing, and I'd given up my bed to a friend in dire straits and was sleeping on a cordoroy couch. I've been narrowly avoiding foreclosure during the pandemic, and truly didn't have the money to spare to buy extras of something I *knew* I had... I just couldn't find it. I work from home, with no video conference meetings, so I typically just put my hair up and tried to find the missing items while trying not to think about the growing rat's nest on my head.The cordoroy was causing mats I couldn't guard against because of the missing bonnet, and I couldn't brush them out because I couldn't find my brush, and finger combing wasn't cutting it.This went on for weeks before I bit the bullet (yes, I routinely washed my hair-- I just couldn't brush it out)--the mats were several inches deep, thick, and wide. If a brush and GK Hair, Leave-in Spray didn't work, I was resigned to cutting it all off. You can see a bit of how bad the problem was in the before photo.I settled the honest company's GK Hair, Leave-in Spray, a GK Hair, Leave-in Spray brush, and a wide toothed comb because they had good reviews, were economical, and would get here FAST. As you can see--I was approaching the point of no salvaging my hair, but I at least wanted to try.I nearly gave up a couple of times, but I finally triumphed. The scent is reminiscent of an orange sparysicle, very sweet, but not offensive to me. The formula seemed nice and lightweight, it made my hair feel softer and more moisturized, and most importantly, performed the desired task of acting like near magical WD40 for hair in loosening up and helping unsnarl even the worst knots and mats. My hair in the 'after' photo is still full of GK Hair, Leave-in Spray--but absolutely tangle free, and you can see the dramatic difference. Aside from blocking out my face, no alterations were done to the photos.As a result, I highly recommend the honest company's GK Hair, Leave-in Spray for tackling truly horrific hair disasters. It works and is effective.
