Basically, the experience of using these products isn't any different than another shampoo/conditioner duo. The shampoo has a nice lather, they both smell very yummy, a fresh fruity scent. Almost like apples, but not quite. I can't explain the scent any better, but I did really love the smell. Both products rinsed out very easily.
Did using these products cut down on my dry time?
While It Factor states that you don't need additional styling products, we both know that isn't true. Yes, my hair was soft and shiny. My frizz was less than a typical non-product day. However, I like my hair to be a bit more bouncy and frizz free on a typical day, so I have reverted to using styling products on days that I use It Factor.
Drying time is definitely decreased when I use these products. I can get the dry time down to about 50-60% of my "normal" time if I don't use any product. If I'm using my usual It Factor day's product, which is about 2-3 pumps of Shu Hair Oil and Oscar Blandi Volume Spray, then drying time is about 75% of normal.
The end result is hair that is shiny, easy to style and looks healthy. I haven't had any issues with product build up (I've actually used about 90% of my bottles as I write this post), and the effects haven't diminished. If you're pressed for time in the morning, definitely check out this duo!
