Biotera Ultra Color Care 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner
Beautiful finish without being heavy or product-y
Purchased the packet version of this - LOVE it. I have been using HairOne (primarily olive oil, and sometimes almond oil) and like it very much, but this is even better. My hair has a much smoother and stronger finish than with HairOne. I used he Biotera 5 in 1, like I do Hair One, as a no-rinse/blow dry creme; this is much thicker so it's helpful to use a smaller amount on very wet hair or wet your hands and emulsify it in your hands before running it through your hair. I like how HairOne cleans and conditions, and keeps my hair healthy and in great shape - but I also use an oil. I get a better finish with the Biotera 5 in 1, without needing to use add'l products, and my hair has more volume and feels thicker and healthier is well. The price is about the same per ounce, so I'll be purchasing this instead in the future. The HairOne product is a more "natural" product when comparing ingredients and contains several types of botanical oils to help clean/condition, if that is more important to you. A minor point - the HairOne pumps stink, so I've been transferring it to a different dispenser - this one works great.

Love every Biotera hair product I have tried, including 5 in 1 cleansing conditioner. I left it on just a few minutes, rinsed, blew dry and styled my hair. It came out with lots of volume, shiny and very well conditioned. I love how it saves a step and I am not shampooing then conditioning as before. It is a time saver as well. Excellent product. My hair is shoulder length, color treated and fine. Love the results and I gave up my other shampoos and conditioners, because this product is that good.

Doesn't Rinse Well - Leaves Thick Residue
I try to go a 2-3 days between shampooing/conditioning, which my hair did fine with until I started using this! I have been using it for the past few weeks, with bad results. The most recent time I used it, despite rinsing, scrubbing my scalp THOROUGHLY underwater & dunking my hair in a tub of water a few times, I still have the waxy feeling to my hair from day one of washing & it gets worse on the 2nd or 3rd day. I'm new to sulfate-free products (which this is supposed to be), but understand that there are apparently some that do lather to varying degrees. The shampoo/conditioner don't lather AT ALL. In addition to the residue it leaves behind, it makes my scalp itch really bad.

Didn't do much!
I have dry frizzy damaged hair and when I used the cleansing conditioner it was still frizzy. I admit it was softer and not quite as dry, but it looked worse than before I washed it. My hair got even more frizzier than usual. I had to use the One 'N Only Argan oil, oil treatment to help it look more normal. I can't seem to find a product that will help my hair look healthier.
