The product was packed in this jar with metallic screw cap. As soon as the lid is opened, a rather strong fragrance came to the nose. It has a really thick consistency, thicker than a general conditioner we use. It doesn't mixes well with water. Replace your conditioner with it, by applying it to dry parts of scalp & thin hair and let it rest for around 15mns. Wash off, or use as leave-in-conditioner. . It is a great alternative to conditioner, which besides conditioning fights with hair problems as well. Though the jar is not much travel friendly, and the spa cream is thick, yet putting it over hair follicles and scalp slowly control your hair fall as well. Its price is justified with the quantity & benefits and is easily available online too.
