answer 1
Probably not. I tried using this in place of a conditioner but noticed that my hair didn't seem as smooth. But that could also be because I have colored hair, which I flat iron every day, so I may just need more moisture. Hope this helps.

Depends on your age. 15 years ago, I would have found it to be a great solo product. I'm now 60 and I consider it to be a base product. I've been looking for a combo to make my hair look and feel more like it did 5+ years ago. My current solution is co-washing with Nexxus Humectress; 10-13 squirts of Caviar CC; and a small dollop of whatever styling product you favor. NOTE: The squirter doesn't dispense much product - 10-13 squirts is NOT a lot of product.

This is more of a styling cream, not a conditioner you use in the shower. Depending on your hair, perhaps you could compare it to a leave-in, but not for me or probably most people.

The scent is light and crisp. I can usually smell it in my hair for a good part of the day but its not overpowering. I wear perfume daily and the Caviar CC cream doesn't overpower it.

Will this help tame my frizzy, wavy hair?
I have fine, frizzy, wavy hair that I blow-dry and iron straight. I want to be able to wear it naturally wavy, but I still need to find a product to tame the frizz and "bulkiness" of my natural texture. Will this help tame my unruly hair?

I have been using this product for over a year, and even though I have very fine hair that is prone to build-up, I haven't had an issue with this product; I do, however, only wash my hair every 3 days, so I don't use as much of the product and I never get it near my roots.

I love this product. I can't say anything about the products you mentioned, but I read a beauty tip somewhere instead of using a towel to dry your hair, use a plain shirt. Gently press to rid of excess water. I tried it and voila no frizz! This CC cream smells amazing and it is lightweight, I have fine wavy, medium length hair and I don't need a lot. I was even surprised when I omitted using a conditioner, used this alone on damp hair, let it air dry and no frizz.

I have medium length, corse, straight hair and I use a total of 4 products for everything. This product, the living proof serum, a flexible hairspray (living proof) and another hairspray that's like concrete (bed head Masterpiece). That's it. if I had to choose 2, then I would choose this product and a flexible hairspray.

I have fine hair, a lot of it, but its fine and this is my magic potion. It does all the things I need without holding my hair down or ever making it feel greasy. Even after a couple days without using shampoo. I use the Phtyo conditioner for fine hair and these two have become my favorites. Don't need much, and you can still add texturizing cream if you want!

My hair is straight, thick and fine - and gets greasy quick. This product does not contribute to that, and it really defines the layers in my straight hair. I can apply this stuff after washing to towel-dried hair, blow-dry, and be DONE. It's amazing. It is drying though.

I had the same concern as you before I bought this product. But I will be honest, this is one of the very few products that doesn't make my already fine, thin, dry hair look greasy or weigh it down. This product does help with frizz and does not make my hair look greasy in the least bit. In fact, many of my co-workers noticed a difference, so did my boyfriend. I really love this product and I recommend that you do try it.

I have colored hair - a dark mahogany red, which is highly prone to fading. I use the product regularly and it doesn't affect my hair color. The fact that I use sulfate-free shampoo + conditioner also plays a huge role in resisting fading.
