the mask comes in a golden colour easy to access pot with screw on lid. its thick, creamy and velvety in texture and you would need about a walnut size amount (or even less) for shoulder length hair. it has a strong vanilla scent which lingers on (i really like it) after washing. its really an amazing product!! my colored, dry, frizzy, ruined by chlorine from daily swimming hair were left smooth, manageable and salon perfect after each and every wash. the they smelt so good that even my partner commented on it. i am so happy that i have finally found MY own 'Miracle Wonder'. party time - bring it on!!!
