This is a great product. I have used many expensive hair products in my life. One day my 73 year old mom (I am 32) showed this too me and initially I didn't think anything of it., I use it with my conditioner (not the suggested use but it works for me) I use about 2-3 times as much as directed. It tames my course and frizzy hair (as I have gotten older my hair texture went form straight and thick, to more frizzy, thinner and dry). Well this product feels thick and heavy in the shower, but afterwards the result is great. If I let my hair dry naturally it has texture, no frizz, lots of shine, volume and great waves that are held together and soft. If I blow out my hair I can make it more wavy, or very straight, and it again has great shine, texture, no frizz, tamed and in control. I use it all the time, too much on the crown can feel oily, but you will figure out the best dose for your hair. For the price it works like a charm. I have spent much more on products that are not effective. To think this has been around for years, wish I discovered it sooner!!! Thank you VO5.

Tried it to see it maybe it would work just as good as something bought from a salon but was disappointed. It shines because it's greasy (read the label - wax & oil) and it is powerfully smelly which does not evaporate that easily. So I am using it to condition my cuticles and nails - that's okay but still stinky. Even my cat runs away after smelling my hands - that odor is THAT strong. I think I'd be better off using Vaseline in my hair at least there is no smell and they are equal - both being oil and wax.

Comments about Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing, Normal/Dry Hair, 1.5 oz:

This product has been around for at least 50 years, and there is a good reason it is still popular today. I have very dry, curly hair that frizzes easily; My Mom had dry, thin, wavy hair. We both use Alberto VO5 on a daily basis. It calms frizz and split ends, adds some shine, and conditions hair. It's not greasy (unless you use WAY too much!) and has a great scent. I couldn't manage my hair without it!

    Comments about Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing, Normal/Dry Hair, 1.5 oz:

    A little dab in palm of hand to work through hair, a little more as needed. VO5 gives hair brilliance, control and a clean, slightly flowery fragrance that will not interfere with your cologne.

        Really gives hair a nice shine. I am older and people always comment how shiny my hair is and what do I use. Have tried other products on the market but was a waste of my money. Always come back to this.

          I have used this product for decades and love it. The tiny amount required does not leave the hair greasy. Post shower daily use keeps the hair in place all day without making it stiff. Unfortunately many drugstores and supermarkets have quit selling it (it does not move fast enough I'm told) so I'm pleased to know I can get it at drugstore.com.

              I've been using this since I was little. Saw it again here at drugstore.com good price , I needed something to manage the frizzes of winter. since the ingredients are norishing as well as helpful and puts alittle shine to your hair I bought some again. just a dimes worth in your hand works up to long hair. adds some shine and good for your hair

              I've used this for years on my naturally curly hair! It gives my hair a nice shine while managing it. Would be nice if Alberto would add a little something to make it smell a little more pleasant. It doesn't have a strong odor by any means and I will continue to use, however, it just has no nose appeal.

                Comments about Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing, Normal/Dry Hair, 1.5 oz:

                This product controls my fine, fly away hair very well. I use it instead of hair spray on most occasions. It leaves a shine in my hair that I didn't have before! It makes my hair soft and it feels like silk. It's really too bad more women aren't aware of this superior product. I will continue to purchase it.
