Review: Roux Mendex Hair Repair Treatment

What they say:

•Adds vibrancy and shine to dry, brittle hair
•Rehydrates to give damaged hair new vitality
•Helps mend split ends and signs of damage
•Helps prevent hair from breaking
Roux Mendex Treatment is specifically formulated to help restore and repair damaged hair. Using a protective complex, Mendex surrounds the hair shaft, bonding split ends and helping to prevent further breakage. Dry, brittle and damaged hair is improved with increased shine and vitality. The self-adjusting formula never over-softens

What Ms. D says: 

I have used this product off and on for about 3 years. It was one of my staple mild protein reconstructors and I would rotate between this and Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor.
This is a great conditioning treatment and it delivers what it promised on MY hair. I typically used this after a relaxer as my mid-protein step and it immediately strengthened my hair without leaving it too hard.
Whenever I would experience some minor breakage, I would shampoo, apply this on my hair for about 5 minutes, rinse, apply leave-ins and that's it. My hair would feel right back to normal. It's somewhat thick in consistency, so a little goes a long way and it will last you a pretty long time depending on how often you use it.
This acted as a light protein treatment on my hair because I didn't overdue it. I never slept with it on overnight or left it in my hair longer than 30 minutes. I also never mixed any additional products in this conditioner. I suggest the same for anyone else using it. 

Rated from 1-5: 

Cost: between $11.79 and $13.00
I purchased this at Sally's and would only buy it when there was a sale.

Can be found at: Sally Beauty Supply or some local beauty supply stores.
ETA 8/25/17- I believe this product is now discontinued and may be difficult to locate.

*Please note that I used this product when I was fully relaxed. I no longer use this only because I have established my transitioning staple products and so far my hair is doing well.
