Question Optimum-Care Anti-Breakage Therapy by Soft Sheen Carson - Anyone tried this line?

I was kinda looking to get their "Breakthru" leave-in, because I heard it's good. But I recently heard they discontinued that. (?????) Maybe someone in the know can confirm.

Anywho, I see they now have an Anti-breakage line (with ceramides and protein) that they claim will make your hair over 100% stronger.

Any reviews from anyone that has tried it?

Did it do what it promised, i.e. make your hair stronger? I'm really looking for prods that *seriously* improve strength and elasticity. (While keeping hair moist.)

Which items in the line have you used and what do you like about them?

I know it has ceramides in it. It's on the ceramide product list in the "ceramide challenge thread."

Thanks, chicas! More reviews welcome please.

I'll check out Luna de Miel and see her results. I did do a search, but nothing came up.

Hey
I haven't used this system but I do use their Optimum salon repair line. I use the Cleanser (shampoo), reconstructor, deep conditioner, Elasticity rebuilder and the hair and scalp equalizer. This is the only line of products that I use and will continue to use. I can say with 100% certainty that my hair is 100X times better since I've started using the softsheen carson products. I think people really sleep on this line. I also use their finishing cream when I wear my hair curly.

1. Cleanser - This shampoo is awesome because it will get the hair very clean and soft. This is the only shampoo that I can actually comb my hair while it's on it.
2. Reconstructor- Leaves hair feeling very strong. You should not comb your hair while this is on it since it tends to make the strands very stiff
3. Deep conditioner- Is applied after the reconstructor. It leaves the hair very soft
4. Elasticity rebuilder - Is applied as a leave in conditioner. This too leaves your hair feeling very soft and strong. It leaves the hair with a slightly coated feeling though. Whenever I use this my hair still has a lot of body and swang lol.
5. Hair and scalp equalizer- I use sparingly when my hair feels a bit dry.

BTW, I just found out that the Optimum Salon Repair Line has been discontinued. LunadeMiel, are you having any trouble finding it? I know we still have it on the shelves in the country where I live, I guess we are on a kind of time lag.

Hi!

I haven't used the line but I use Breakthru Fortifying Moisturizing Shampoo and it is great. It makes my hair soft and shiny.

@Ese88 - How did this relaxer work out for you? I'm thinking of getting it for my next relaxer. Last couple of times I used Mizani Butter Blends, and I like the moisturised feeling I get from it. But I would like to use something that gives me a bit more of punch of strength and elasticity.
