Essential Ultra Honey and Shea Butter Hair Pack Review and Update

I'm sorry for a lack of updates on my blog! Things were hectic during the last couple weeks of work, and then moving home and starting school hasn't made things any easier.
Well I wanted to review the Essential Ultra Honey and Shea Butter Hair Pack. I started going to the gym about 4 times a week and I would use the pool a lot, which dried out my hair quite a bit. I wanted to try a deep conditioner so I picked this up at a drugstore for about 600-yen. The directions say to use after washing your hair, leave it in for 5 minutes and rinse it out. The formula is really thick and I found it a little hard to spread it evenly throughout my hair. I also noticed it took a long time to rinse out, so using this can be time consuming, but I think the results were worth it. My hair felt so soft and was really shiny the next day. It was definitly moisturizing and my hair felt really nice. And the formula is really think so you don't need much. The jar is 200g so it will last a long time. I've been using it almost weekly and I've barely made a dent in it. This also smells amazing! I thought it would smell like honey like the name implies, but it smells a lot like the Essential Rich Premier shampoo and conditioner. Highly reccomended if you can find it in the US!

And an update on what I've been up to since I moved home...
Things actually worked out quite nicely. I got a job interview the day after I got home and got hired at Kona Mountain Coffee at the Hilton. I've been there about a month now, and I'm getting good hours (25-30 a week). School started the following week and I'm only taking 4 classes since it's my last semester:
EALL363B- 20th Century Chinese Literature
JPN471- Okinawan 1
JPN407B- Newspapers and Magazines
AMST212- Contemporary American and Global Issues
I have a feeling that I'll be burnt out at the end of the semester from work and school, but at least I'll be graduating! I have 2 writing intensive classes this semester so we don't really have final exams, but just a lot of papers to write.
I'm also trying to move out of the house soon. I've been trying to find a small 1 bedroom that we can share, but it's proving to be a lot harder than I thought. I saved over $1000 this summer and I was hoping to be out of the house sooner, but hopefully we'll figure something out soon. For those of you living on your own or with your SO, any advice??
Hope everyone has had a good summer, and good luck to everyone this fall semester!
