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.

    This is great hair conditioner, long lasting, a little goes a long way, and works great as a Beard Balm at less than half the price of any Beard Balm I've ever seen. Getting harder to find in stores so I'm glad Drugstore.com carries it!

      I can't say this for a fact but I have been using it for a very long time and I have very little grey hair at 65 years of age. And I still have hair.

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

          Alberto VO5 is a fantastic product that has been around for decades but deserves to be back "in style." Just a tiny bit goes a long way, so use it sparingly or it will appear greasy. When using just a bit, this adds a natural-looking, healthy-looking shine while controlling frizz or taming wild curls. Far less expensive than many other products, while also delivering a far superior product.

            My kid has course, curly hair, and this is the only stuff that keeps it in check. I wet it, rub a small amount of this through, then put a little curl enhancing mouse (usually Suave) and scrunch dry it with a hairdryer. Comes out looking beautiful and healthy every time without fail!

            I use it just on my ends because my hair is stick strait, and it does make them look healthier. Also does a good job controlling flyaways. In addition, I sometimes use this before shampooing, and it does make it softer than conditioner alone.

                My Great-Grandmother used VO5 on her naturally curly hair. What a wonderful product with few chemical ingredients, mostly natural. Use just a touch, easy does it, to control frizz and flyaways. Apply a little heavier as a pre-shampoo deep conditioner. Leaves hair soft, shiny, healthier.

                    Actually did not buy for myself. I read in a magazine, tried it and did work....I wiped down
                    the leaves on my large live houseplants. Not only cleared the dust but made them o-so shiney. Now I do it once a month

                    I'm a dude with wavy hair that poofs if I take a shower and don't use product. I use S-Curl 360 Style Wave Control Pomade daily. I don't want to shampoo my hair twice a day, so I wanted something I could put in my hair at night after the gym/shower. The 360Style doesn't rinse out completely with water, so that may be one reason this V05 seems to be more of a styling product than a conditioner. Initial smell is strong, like wiping the oil off your tires and putting it in your hair. But more or less fades after a while.
