This is not a leave in conditioner!

It's a hair cream for moisturizing your tresses, much the same way a person moisturizes their face. Use a little EVERYDAY, just as diligently as you would use a facial moisturizer. If I've just washed my hair, I use it while my hair is still damp. And on other days, I apply it before styling products. I use a ears-down approach, so my roots don't get oily.

In my opinion, you would either use a leave-in-conditioner OR use 7, not both. If I use 7 everyday, I don't need a leave-in, my hair is not dry.

Hi, this is NOT a conditioner. (Although Phyto does offer a conditioner). This product is used to hydrate the hair after you've showered. It helps with frizz, fly aways, and provides balance for your hair.

This is a leave-in conditioner. At least, that is the way I used it. I didn't have any problems with thick, sticky hair that some conditioners - even leave-in ones, will cause. It was light weight and very hydrating. I used it two days in a row after having sun and wind damaged hair, brittle from the sun. The hydration lasted for days after.

This is step one for me when I get out of the shower & have towel dried my hair. It allows my comb to slide through my hair without pulling or breaking and it never leaves that gross silicone slime behind...just lightweight conditioning where you need it. I don't think it would do much for already dry hair. It is not a texture product or a shine serum.

No, still use a good quality wash out conditioner after shampooing regularly. I would recommend using Phyto 7 after every wash, towel dry then comb with a wide tooth comb. Use as a leave-in, and style however you'd like. REMEMBER to be gentle with your hair whilst wet, that's when it's extremely delicate.

Massage through pieces of your hair so it may coat your hair. This may be done with dry or damp hair. This is to be used after you wash your hair or even if you do not wash it that day. Do this before styling.

The mask is something you put on in the shower, let it stay on there for 10-15 minutes (not sure exactly how long the directions say, but this will allow good penetration), and then rinse it out. You put the Phyto 7 on as a leave-in conditioner. I have long, fine hair but lots of it and probably use a couple of quarter size dollops of it, rake it through all over, and style as usual.

The hydrating cream is smoothing and does wonders for my dry, fine hair. After shampooing, I get as much water out of my hair as possible before putting a small amount of this onto my hair and then I blowdry.

The mask is more of a deep conditioner.

I think it probably depends on your hair consistency and how much you use. I have fine hair and I'd be afraid to use both this and gel for fear of it being too heavy.
