Herbal Essences Hydralicious Conditioner

Herbal Essences Hydra-Licious & Damage Boost Conditioner

Update 3/9/2017: This combed and clumped beautifully, like all other products with these ingredients. The scent on this Herbal Essence conditioner seemed less sweet to me (which was sort of a relief, since these products are often all so super sweetly strong), but maybe my nose is warped or something. 2/18/2017: Herbal Essences Hydra-Licious & […]

Its a ten conditioner

It’s a 10 Miracle Deep Conditioner Plus Keratin

Product Summary: A good comber and a light clumper, this would be good for hair that gets weighed down easily, so you want a lighter product than what I usually recommend. I don’t think it’s worth the price as there are way cheaper conditioners that I feel comb as well and hold curls better, but […]

Kinky-Curly Stellar Strands Hydrating Deep Treatment

Product summary: This product isn’t a slippery comber – it feels a bit sticky to comb with, but it still combed well.  It is a super-clumper. It weighed my hair down to the point it felt heavy, and kept my curls firm and smooth. It  does leave a slight residue on your hands after handling […]

mixed-chicks-deep-conditioner

Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner

  Update 12/10/2016: Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner is marketed as a deep conditioner, but if you check out the ingredients and compare them with all the other conditioners, they are basically the same. This is a thicker  product, but I’m assuming it’s thicker because they put less water in there. This is almost a whipped […]

neutrogena-triple-moisture-conditioner

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner

  Update 12/1/2016: This combed pretty well, but seemed a bit too stiff if I had extra tangled hair. It clumped very well, nice and firm curls which would make this a good conditioner for extra control if that was something you were looking for. It seemed to do fine throughout the week I used […]

aveda-brilliant-conditioner-ii

Aveda Brilliant Conditioner

Update 10/16/2016: So a week’s gone by after using this conditioner. I wasn’t thrilled with it, and to be honest, when I went to comb my hair again after the trial week was over, it seemed like my hair was more tangled. However, I’d been gardening in the rain and getting my hair caught in lots […]

lighter-shea-moisture

Shea Motion Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

Product Summary: This is a gentle shampoo. However, for some reason, it always tastes like I got perfume sprayed in my mouth after using it, so I don’t reach for it as often as I could for only that reason. Update 9/17/2016: I’ve used this shampoo twice now and I do like it. It has […]

Shea Motion curl and Moisture Cond

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner

  Update 9/10/2015: It’s been a week, and I’m recommending this combing conditioner. It kept my curls nice and weighed. I found it really moisturizing for the ends of my hair. I think this would be a great conditioner for winter when everything is extra dry. Update 9/4/16: I went through the ingredients and felt […]

Pantene Smooth and sleek conditioner

Pantene Smooth & Sleek Finishing Conditioner

Pantene Smooth & Sleek Finishing Conditioner has (somewhat) recently slightly changed its ingredients. Most of the Pantenes have very similar ingredients, and in that case I usually will try out one or two conditioners in the line, and if other conditioners in the same line have the same ingredients as each other, I consider them […]

Pantene curl perfection cond brighter

Pantene Curl Perfection Moisturizing Conditioner

Pantene Curl Perfection Moisturizing Conditioner is your basic moisturizing-style Pantene conditioner. It combs fine and clumps well. If you compare its ingredients to the Pantene Truly Natural Hair Curl Defining Conditioner, you’ll see they have almost identical ingredients for the most part. Some are in a slightly different order. The Truly Natural has a bit […]

Moroccan shine cond brighter

Clairol Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine Conditioner

Product Summary: Though it’s on the perfume-y side, this is one of my go to conditioners. When I comb with it my hair feels glass-like and the comb glides through my curls easier. It clumps and smooths well. Update 9/24/2016: This may be just about my favorite conditioner. I just used it again tonight and […]

Aveda damage cond brigher

Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner

Update 9/24/2016: The full week for trying Damage Remedy Conditioner is now over. I checked my hair tonight right before stepping into the shower and the ends still looked shiny and soft. So I am going to recommend this conditioner. It wasn’t my favorite because other conditioners comb a little better, but it did comb […]

Herb ess hello hyd cond larger

Clairol Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner

Clairol Herbal Essences ‘Hello Hydration’ Conditioner used to be one of my go to conditioners, but then it seemed all the Herbal Essences were adding sodium hydroxide to their products, and I had to turn away. But I was pleasantly surprised today to visit it in the store and to see it’s lye free as of […]

Aussie three min wider

Aussie Smooth 3 Minute Miracle

I just tried this this last Sunday and was really happy with it. It combed really well, and my hair seemed even more clumped and soft than usual. It’s hard to explain, but my hair seemed to have a bit of extra weight, and felt even softer. I think this may be my new go to […]

This bottle did not have salt.

Aussie Miraculously Smooth Conditioner – with cautions

***Caution*** Read entire post before purchasing! Aussie Miraculously Smooth had been on my do not recommend list, but… Update 9/27/2016: Sometimes I go to the store and pick up the Aussie Miraculously Smooth conditioner just to glare at the salt they suddenly placed in the ingredients. I don’t know why I keep looking at it. […]

Natures Gate cond wider

Nature’s Gate Herbal Conditioner

   I have a long history with Nature’s Gate Conditioner. I used to use this back in high school when I was going through my “texturizing” hair phase. Since I was too scared to see what my hair would do with no chemicals, I was putting relaxer in my hair, then rinsing it out in […]

FUBU Cond wider

Natural Style by FUBU Moisture Shine Leave-In Conditioner

I like the smell of this conditioner. It’s fragrance is different from the regular drugstore conditioners – a little more incense undertones or something. Smokey-er. But in a good way. You won’t smell like a cigarette or anything after using it. I’m sure I’m not describing the fragrance properly, but that’s how it reads to […]

Paulas cond wider

Paula’s Choice Smooth Finish Conditioner All Hair Types

I must confess, I’m biased towards Paula’s products. I just want to say that up front. It was through her books that I learned that products are nothing more than the sum of their ingredients, no matter what wonders the front of the bottle promises. So when Paula began putting out products, I tried them […]

Aussie three min moist wider

Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle

For a long while I was reluctant to try any of the Aussie products because I was worried they might not be slippery enough for combing, so I must admit I wasn’t quick to try this line. Also, a long long time ago, I had a bad experience trying to comb my hair with this product at […]

ShiKai Cond wider

ShiKai Natural Everyday Conditioner

Available in most health food stores. This has hardly any scent at all. I needed to use much more of this product to weigh down and clump my curls, but it didn’t build up, and it was a smooth comb. I wasn’t expecting it to be, but it is quite effective. My curls stayed clumped […]
