Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight conditioner

Not Recommended: Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight Conditioner

Update 3/9/2017: I was looking up the ingredients, and after looking up PEG-14M in my heavy duty Gottshalk ingredients dictionary/ tome, it turns out to be an ingredient to avoid. It’s made of repeating chains of ethylene oxide, which is banned in Europe for being possibly cancer causing. 2/9/2017: This Frizz Ease conditioner looks promising from […]

Pantene Gold Conditioner

Not Recommended: Pantene Gold Series Moisture Boost Conditioner

There I was, walking through a Walgreen’s, and this bottle of Pantene Gold nearly jumped off the shelf at me. I snatched it up and flipped it over (I never read all the promises on a bottle’s front. They can tell you anything they think you want to hear. I just read enough to think […]


Not Recommended – Dove Quench Absolute Conditioner and Dove Regenerative Nourishment Conditioners

Both the Dove Quench Absolute Conditioner and Dove Regenerative Nourishment Conditioner have very similar ingredients, and also have the same reason I’m not recommending them. Four lines down for the right conditioner and five lines down for the Regenerative Nourishment conditioner, they both of them have potassium chloride, which is a salt. It’s sort of okay (but […]


Not Recommended – Suave Sleek Conditioner

I only had to spend about five seconds (maybe less) scanning over the ingredients of Suave Sleek Conditioner before potassium chloride popped out at me and I quickly put this bottle back on the shelf. Potassium chloride is a salt, most likely put there as a cheap thickener, but salt is corrosive and drying. It’s too bad, […]


Not Recommended: Kinky-Curly Knot Today Natural Leave In/ Detangler

Update 10/16/2016: I wanted to try this product, to the point I even bought it. In fact, I’d even skimmed over the ingredients in the store before I bought it. And I missed it. The first ingredient. Mango fruit extract. Mango fruit is really acidic. I once used a conditioner with acidic ingredients like citrus and […]

Alaffia beautiful curls conditioner

Not Recommended: Alaffia Beautiful Curls Deep Conditioning Treatment

  Update 9/12/2106: Crap. Alaffia Beautiful Curls Deep Conditioning Treatment has magnesium sulfate. This is epson salt. So I wrote Alaffia and asked them to offer some conditioners for very curly hair without the salt so I can recommend them (provided they don’t substitute for something equally drying). While I was there I asked for […]

Not Recommended: Alaffia Shea & Honey Nourishing Conditioner Citrus Blossom

I’ve been wanting to add more natural-type products to the combing conditioner recommendations, so I picked up Alaffia Shea & Honey Nourishing Conditioner, Citrus Blossom, along with the shampoo, (reviewed as well). I’m especially picky about combing conditioners, because they have so much work to do and I leave them in my hair, but the right […]

Lush happy joy cond

Not Recommended: Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Hair Conditioner

I love how Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Hair Conditioner smells. Just love it. Like I want to use it as a lotion so I can keep smelling it. I really like how they make a point of being against animal testing, and that this product is vegan (especially since I’m vegan). I liked the store, […]
