A More Intensive Hair Treatment: Jose Eber Therapy Rx Review

Product Sent for Review

Conditioning Iron Review

I know what you're thinking. Another flat iron? Yawn.

But, it isn't a flat iron. Using this thing will affect your hair, but it isn't going to be straightening (or curling) anything. I have to confess that I was about to buy this, when Jose Eber sent me one to try out. I really, really wanted to try it out. I was convinced it wouldn't work and would be a waste of money. But if I was wrong, how could would that be?

I'm proud to report that I was wrong.

Does the conditioning flat iron light work?

So, what exactly is this thing? It's an infrared iron that also uses ultrasonic vibration. The idea is that you apply something conditioning to your hair, then use the Therapy Rx on your hair. Per Jose Eber:
Used in conjunction with any hair conditioner or oil, the Therapy RX penetrates the cuticle, breaks down the conditioner or oil into nano particles, and pushes it into your hair giving your hair an incredible moisture blast.

You apply whatever product you want to your hair after a shower, turn on the Therapy Rx (there's a simple switch) and you'll see the lights go on. Simply run the iron over your hair. There's no heat, and it feels like you couldn't possibly be doing anything to your hair. Once you think you've done this enough, just style your hair like usual.

So, while I didn't think I was really doing much to my hair, I can tell you that I definitely noticed a difference right away! Using the Therapy Rx definitely seems to do something to conditioners. My hair was immediately softer than it should have been with the leave in conditioner I used (or at least, than it usually is). It was especially effective when combined with Darshana (check out my review of Darshana Hair Oil). Using the Therapy Rx is like leaving Darshana on your hair for another 6 hours.

So, while I rarely rave on and on about a product, I have to say that I really do think this tool is worth the $200. It does pop up on occasion on sites like Hautelook, so snag one if you see it. This is a must have if your hair is damaged, you color your hair or do a lot of heat styling.

I agree, it's worth the money. Why would anyone risk permanently frying their hair by using a cheap flat iron?

This looks so interesting. I color my hair, I get it straightened with that 450 degree flat iron, I blow dry and sometimes flat iron. I think my head needs this desperately!

Christine, do you use this while hair is wet? Or after blow drying?

Christine Mikesell said...

You can pretty much do whatever you want. I've used it on dry hair with Darshana Oil, then washed and styled as usual. I've also used leave in conditioner on wet hair, then the Therapy Rx, dry and style as usual. The key is that you want the conditioner "wet", so it is really absorbing.

It has NO heat at all. You can actually touch the plates. :) lol. I just bought this at ULTA on clearance for $69.99 and I had coupons so it was only $55.
