By now it's no secret: I'm a slave to moisture. So I love it when I find a product that is full of the moisture that I crave. Terax Crema Conditioner ($22-$48) is something of a cult favorite, but I hadn't given it a try until recently. My expectations were high. After all, this is a product that claims to alter the pH of the hair, allowing the cuticle to open and the moisture to penetrate deeper than other conditioners.
I often find myself let down by "cult favorites," probably as a result of my unreasonably high expectations. But Terax Crema was just right for my dry, yet fine hair. It has a nice, light scent from the rice flower, shea, and bergamot. It feels smooth and creamy, yet not too heavy, and it left my hair soft and bouncy. Not everything I try gets a permanent spot in my shower, but I'm definitely making room for this little blue bottle.
