My Thoughts: I wanted this product to work so badly. I heard and read all the comments about Nioxin Thermal Bliss from Megz, Salon Cabelo, and many others. I purchased this bottle a little over 3 months ago and just rediscovered it in my cabinet. The first time I used this product, I was transitioning. The state of my hair, after using Nioxin, was detangled and full of body. I loved this aspect of my hair at the time but my hair felt stiff. Upon rediscovering it again, November 2nd, I decided to give it a shot on my natural hair. Different hair equals different results right? Umm! I poured a little of the product in a spray bottle, and I only needed a few sprays. I had no problem detangling with this product, but my hair was still a bit stiff and hard. Considering how much I wanted to love this product, it didn't work out. Protein overload may have been the issue. I'm going to stick to my It's a 10 leave in from now on. Also, Nioxin Thermal Bliss is discontinued but I was able to find it online at Pandora Beauty (Link is above). Currently, Nioxin Thermal Bliss is out of stock on the Pandora Beauty Website but I've seen it being sold on Ebay, as well as Amazon. 

Other Things to Consider:
  • It smells fair
  • Has a liquid consistency
  • Packed with Protein
  • Detangles
  • This particular bottle is huge. (16.9 fl. oz.)
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Lightweight
Keep It or Toss It: Sadly I'm going to give this product away to someone who can benefit from it more.
