After using for a few weeks now, it often feels like I need more conditioner when applying. It definitely does not lather. Though I don't believe a product has to lather to do it's job; we're just so used to that with the chemicals in other products. I concentrate the conditioner to the ends and after rinsing and drying, my hair feels nice and smooth, and conditioned well. I forgot to mention on the shampoo review, that you have to be careful when dispensing the shampoo because of the tube design and consistency of the liquid. I've wasted a lot in the beginning (especially from not being fully awake in the shower and paying attention!), but it takes time to break the pour habit & remember that you do not need much of the shampoo to clean well and even build a lather (which I was surprised it did)!
