Several years ago my hairdresser gave me a bottle of It’s A Ten Leave In Conditioner. For years I had always used Infusium 23, and thought it was working just fine. However, I noticed a huge improvement in the shine and bounciness of my hair after using It’s A 10.  It really does seem to leave it very soft and adds shine.

It’s A 10 does 10 things instantly: 1. Repairs dry damaged hair. 2. Adds shine. 3. Smoothes and controls frizz. 4. Seals and protects hair color. 5. Flat iron spray and thermal protector.  6. Detangles. 7. Stops hair breakage. 8. Creates silkiness. 9. Enhances natural body. 10. Prevents split ends.  That’s where the name comes from. Pretty clever, huh? Even though it comes in a spray bottle, it is not liquid.  It sprays out more like a cream, or light conditioner.  I would recommend spraying the product into your hand and then using on hair.  You don’t seem to use as much with that method.  I’ve never had any problem with the sprayer getting clogged.

In researching the product, I found that It’s A 10 also carries It’s A Ten Leave in Conditioner with Keratin.  It claims to do the following 10 things:  1. Maintenance of keratin straightening treatments. 2. Increase styling & manageability. 3. Perfect for all hair types. 4. Replaces lost protein. 5. Protects the natural keratin in hair. 6. Protects against heat. 7. Restores hydration balance. 8. Detangles, defrizzes & adds shine. 9. Strengthens hair structure. 10. Seals cuticles for extra silky hair.

Even knowing there is a difference I still would stick with the original, because it works great for me and it seems to claim to help  more with damaged hair.  I have color treated hair, and use a blow dryer and curling iron regularly, so I am looking for a product that helps with protecting the hair color and preventing split ends.  The second one doesn’t claim to do that.
