My hair was very soft and it did stretch it out a lot, but it took forever for it it get back to it regular curl. After about a week and two washes my hair finally got back to what I think is it's normal look. I don't feel like it gave my hair any more pop than any other type of conditioning.
On my face I liked the mask the best, my face felt very clean and I could tell a difference. I will definitely be using the clay again on my face, but not my hair.
