    This conditioner is perfect for my daughter's thick tightly curled hair. This condition is really thick and when rinsed out leaves hair soft and very easy to comb

    I like the product. But I'll give it a 3 because it just was not that unique. It's was a basic conditioner.

    I love the thickness of this product. It made my 4c hair soft. I used as a pre poo n deep conditioner n i liked both ways. Nice citrus smell. I only wish it came in a jar. It was hard to sweeze out.

    I had this bad boy in my hair under my turban wrap for a full day and it didn't drip. This conditioner is thick and stays put. It has great slip. My 4J-Z hair that usually does snap and pop while being combed listened to this conditioner. My hair chillaxed and the comb slid through easily and pain free. I used this for pre AND post wash conditioning,and it worked well. I would use this as a leave in, or wash most of it out, and leave a bit in for extra moisture. It smells great, the bottle is your traditional conditioner bottle, ad it 's a great complement to the shampoo. I recommend this product.

    The smell has really good and it made my hair (4c) pretty easy to detangle... I am not sure that it controls breakage... My hair was a bit dryer than it is when I use the Garnier Frutis though...

    I loved the smell. It had great slip and made it super easy to detangle! I don't think it helped with breakage as much as I had expected, but my hair was definitely left moisturized and soft afterwards. Frizz was still a problem, but all in all I can't complain.

    Great smell, left my hair feeling softer, and my curls looking healthier. My only complaints are that it did nothing for my frizz, and I couldn't wear it for more than a day. All in all, I really liked it, and it left looking better that it did when I first started using it.

    The smell of this conditioner was really good. My hair loves this product, it was really good when it came to eliminate the product buildup from hair. I could easily detangle my hair with this conditioner. My hair was brittle before but after using this product, it was soft and manageable.

    VERY thick, but doesn't weigh down my hair. My hair can TAKE some weight. It left my curls defined. Still with the lovely scent. Goes on thick, rinses out well.

    Again, as I said in the hair wash review, this product line has a great smell. GREAT. LOVELY! Not floral, not sweet, just right. Something both curly men AND curly women can use. I loved that this conditioner had great slip. I thought it made my hair really soft, which was nice. My main problem was that it didn't act as a very good leave in conditioner and didn't really help with the breakage issue. My hair still has a ton of frizz and looks dry after two days of wear. I'm not sure if I would use this product again, but it's a nice and light conditioner.

    Surprisingly, I really like the conditioner, has decent slip and a good detangler. The price however will keep me from buying the product, I can find products with better ingredients for this price.

  • AmazingAsh86 - Hair Type: Type 3c

    I adore this conditioner! It is thick and creamy and pretty much just glides on my hair. The first time I used it, it was as a deep conditioner and it did a great job! I left it on my hair for a few hours and after I washed it out, my hair was soft and tangle free. When I paired it with the hair wash, I had even better results than when I used it alone. I also noticed it was much easier for me to detangle with this conditioner. I'm not in love with the smell - it's not great and not horrible - but that's not a deal breaker for me at all since the scent isn't too loud or overbearing.

    This may be my new favorite conditioner. It only takes a little to cover my hair and make it soft and manageable all the way around. The smell is great and the slip is perfect for releasing tangles.

    Yay! No more tangles. I love the thick, creaminess of this conditioner and the deep conditioning it provides. I am generally plagued with static fly away hair during this time of year, but this product kept that in check nicely. So awesome to have the comb slip right through my hair without a fight.

    I enjoyed this product best out of the line. I liked the fact that it was thick and I felt it coated my strands effectively. My hair felt moisturized after I used it and I think the product would aid in maintaining my hair's strength and health.

    I found this conditioner to be really thick and creamy and that's how I like it! Sat on my hair for a bit before it soaked in, but once it did everything was good. It also put back the moisture that I lost from the shampoo. I would totally recommend it.

    My favorite product in this line this conditioner doubles as a deep conditioner which I love. It is very thick and coats my hair really well. I wasn't about to detangle right away I had to let my hair sit for a few then go under the hooded dryer for 15 minutes but the results made me very happy. My detangling session under running water was a breeze and my shead hairs were minimal. This is a conditioner I'd buy again. You get a lot of product for the price, good deal good value!

    Frizz, meet your foe. Tangles, meet your comb. I left this conditioner in my hair for about 7 minutes (that's the time I approximate it takes to shave my legs, accurate, no?) and let it rinse out, breathing in the sweet sweet scent of perfectly curly hair. I actually look forward to washing my hair, like right now, I might just go do that. Not only do I look forward to washing/conditioning it, it actually creates those little bouncy curls that make 10 people stop you throughout the day and ask, "Is your hair naturally curly?" You know, that question that generally ignites a deep-rooted longing in your heart to punch them in the face. "YES! Yes, I have lived with this torture my whole life, the frizz, the pain, the chemical treatments to get it straightened because all I wanted to be in high school was a normal girl with normal hair and not this crying heap of a mess who can't figure out how to blow dry her hair without emulating the sort of dog that only rich people own." And they would chuckle. CHUCKLE. Because they say, "Man what I would give to have curly hair, my hair does nothing." And then they hold up their frizz-free, highlighted locks, procuring another distinct flashback to the cheerleaders I went to school with, and my heart dies a little inside. I want to do nothing with my hair. I don't want to spend hours a week learning just how to wash and dry my hair. I don't want to have to go to a special hairstylist and pay three times as much as you so I don't look like a brunette Carrot-top. What did I ever do to God to deserve this?! Tell me!! But then, this conditioner. Rewind that scene to the "Is your hair naturally curly?" And I smile, whip my perfectly bouncy curls in their face, lean one sly cheek over my shoulder and reply so sweetly and innocently, "Yeah girl, I'm Au Naturale". And then strut away like I just beat out Jennifer Lawrence for an Oscar. Because of my hair. So yes. I love this stuff.

    I like the conditioner . It's really a thick substance so it's hard to get out of the container. But I left it on for 5 mins and after I washed it out it left my hair soft and detangled . I will use it again and do a dc next time

    This stuff is sooooo thick. I had to add water to my bottle to lease the product. I left it on my hair over night and washed it out in the morning. My hair loved it my hair melted with the product the smell wasn't all that great but not a deal breaker.

    Really thick consistency -- like a hair mask. Had great slip, weighed my hair down so I could detangle. This + my heat therapy wrap thing = VERY SOFT HAIR. and most importantly, when i rinsed it out, my hair was still just as soft.

    The scent of the conditioner is excellent, a little more mild than the shampoo. As I applied the conditioner to my wet hair I noticed that it was more foamy than the shampoo...as I twisted my hair with the conditioner in it, I sprayed water with a spray bottle to reactivate the foam action. My hair was super stretchy and soft.

    It's quite good! Good ingredients, affordable, smells nice and you get a lot of product. I like to coat my hair with it and leave it on for a little bit. My hair feels super soft and manageable afterwards. I really like it!
