I received these samples with an Ulta I believe. I usually don’t think samples are a good representation of a product because you usually only get one use out of a sample, which isn’t usually enough to see if a product is good or if I will like it or not. This shampoo and conditioner were AWESOME though! My hair felt super smooth and soft after I used them and when my hair dried it was so soft and shiny. I will definitely purchase the full size of these products.
