Hair type: Dry and damaged, thin, coloured
I bought a conditioner from Not Your Mother’s a year back and quite liked it. This brand always attracts me with their unique names and cute stuff. I got 2 bottles of this hair treatment since hair treatment requires longer time to show results. I regret getting 2 bottles in excitement because it was very average. Read the in-depth review below!
Price: $7.99/Rs 535 for 236 ml
Product Description by Not Your Mother’s:
Do you hear the sirens? Has someone called CODE BLUE on your hair? Then it’s time for a trip to the emergency groom! I mean room. NOT YOUR MOTHER’S Intensive Hair Unit Renewal Treatment is infused with carrot root extract to assist in the repair of damaged, troubled hair, reviving lifeless hair back to its original healthy state. Doctor’s Orders: Use this premium, deep conditioning, moisturizing treatment once a week to give your hair a clean bill of health.
Directions: Apply a small amount in palms and work into wet hair that has been washed and well rinsed. Use sparingly near roots and more liberally towards ends. Leave for 1 to 3 minutes before rinsing.
My Experience with Not Your Mother’s Intensive Hair Unit Renewal Treatment:
Packaging: The Hair Renewal Intensive Unit looks extremely cute in pink and white. This brand totally nails it when it comes to the packaging as it looks very vibrant, quirky and girly. It has a cute heart shaped pump in pink as well which works very conveniently. The cylindrical bottle is very handy and has a lock system too. The price is good since hair treatments do not come at that price especially the drugstore ones. It has a very nice description which is cute and girly too.
Consistency, smell and feel on the hair: The hair treatment comes in pure white colour. The consistency is super thick just like hair butter. It goes really smooth on my hair but a good quantity is required. I usually use it sparingly on the roots and more towards the ends because they ask us to do so and I already have pretty thin hair. The smell is very powdery and girly and smells pleasant. The smell lingers and stays on for the following day as well. The smell is very refreshing and not over-powering at all. It feels a bit thick and heavy on the hair since the consistency is like that.
Results: The hair treatment gives very average results because it just made my hair a little smoother and softer. It also looked treated but I have used far better products. It did not repair any damage and neither did it look that way. It did not make my hair look that healthy and the damage was very much visible. Also my hair ends were frizzy as usual and it did not control the frizz at all not even for a few hours. Also I used only a little amount near the roots but it weighed down my hair. It also leaves my hair pretty thick and greasy which looks very bad since I have thin hair. A big no from my side!

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Not Your Mother’s Intensive Hair Unit Renewal Treatment?
No I wouldn’t! It did not work well for my damaged hair, so neither would I get it again nor would I recommend it.
