First impression, the shampoo had a pleasant peach scent. I tried this shampoo on the thickest and most driest section of my hair. I lathered once with a little bit of it and my hair felt velvety smooth. I liked the first lather so I decided to see how my hair would respond to two lathers. To my surprise, after the second lather, my hair still felt velvety smooth and not squeaky clean like most shampoos. I was able to lightly detangle with my hands without trouble. I like this shampoo. It gives the velvety smooth feeling I get with my current shampoo but more hydration especially if lathering multiple times. The price is kind of high for an 8oz bottle, but if you are willing to part with the cash I believe it is worth the money.

This conditioner had a pleasant pear scent. Because I was able to detangle with my hands during the shampoo phase, I didn't need to do much detangling in the condition phase. Therefore the conditioner distributed easily on soaking wet hair; which means I did not have to use a lot. My hair maintained it's softness especially on my ends which need the most care, naturally.
I cannot speak on how well it adds volume because I don't have any issues with volume, and because I styled in twists I couldn't tell a difference.
Overall, this conditioner was good. However, it would've been better to try the matching conditioner to the moisturizing shampoo. $24.99 for 8oz is pretty steep for me because I tend to be heavy handed with conditioners, but if you add on soaking wet hair you will find that the conditioner spreads easily limiting the amount you actually need to use.
