I had a client who has been coming to me to go from black box color to blonde. Her hair was so dry and brittle and very limp from the lack of protein that box color had stripped from her hair. After our first lightening session, her hair needed soem love. I used Malibu C Miracle Repair and let it sit for 5-7 minutes and her hair which naturally tangles became very silky and easy to brush out. There was added shine and her hair was instantly strengthened. This is definitely my go-to product!
