Oh gosh this stuff is way to heavy for my hair. I use the tiniest bit after I've towel dried, and it just sits on top of the hair shaft. It looks greasy and pieced out like dirty hair. I have the peppermint version.
I'm not going to throw it out though. I'm going to keep it for the summer months. When I'm outside at the beach or pool and need some protection against the sun and wind, I think this might work. So no money loss...I hope, but it's a no-go as a daily leave-in.
I love putting this in my hair after I shower and before I go to bed. The lavender smell is so soothing. It also works nicely on my hands and dry patches on my face, too, and it's fair trade! It doesn't seem to do much for frizz, is the only thing. My hair is in better condition after using this as a leave in, but I'll still have static and flyaways.
As a leave in conditioner this is great, probably the best I've used. One pump will provide lots of shine as if you were using an anti frizz serum or cream. Since it's pretty much a blend of oils, water, and alcohol that shouldn't be surprising so it should be a great option if you're looking for a silicone free product. The real sell for me is that it includes organic and fair trade ingredients and is vegan.
I love this product and have been using it for about 3 years. I have slightly dry, course, wavy shoulder length hair. I apply a quarter sized amount to my hair after washing and let air dry. It keeps my hair moisturized and soft. In general I love Dr. Bronner's products as well as the company in genera. Will continue to purchase (even though it is kinda tough to find where I am.)
I got this for around 9$ online and this is my first foray into leave-in conditioners. I have this in peppermint and the scent is definitely lovely. I have to be extremely careful not to use too much, which can be all to easy because of the pump system, otherwise you end up looking greasy. ^^; I apply a bit of this after my hair has air dried a bit. The next morning it feels uber soft. This doesn't do much for taming frizz or anything like that however. I'll probably play around a bit more with other types out there before deciding on buying this again.
First the good news: Love the scent, and the organic ingredients. Seems very moisturizing. tames my frizz and adds some softness.
Use this sparingly!! i used two pumps this morning on my towel dried hair and i am a grease-ball today. a little goes a long way, just keep that in mind!
This leave-in conditioner is absolutely fabulous for my thick, wavy, color-treated hair. It adds moisture without greasiness or limpness. I've used many leave-ins and this is my HG. I've bought gone through several bottles and even got my son on this as we have the same hair type (he doesn't color his though. lol!) I can see why it doesn't work for thin, fine, oily hair. But for me, I'll never be without it!!!
Overall, I really like this stuff. Personally, I find all of Dr. Bronner's other products really drying, and I doubt that using this stuff afterward will repair the damage as promised on the bottle. However, it's hard for me to find leave in hair products that don't break my face out. I like this stuff because it makes my hair a little smoother and smells great. I use maybe 1/3rd of a pump on the ends of my damp hair. Overall, really nice.
I use this in lavender and can't wait to try the peppermint. A little goes a long way and any hair type can use it. I advise starting with a small amount and figuring out how much you need. Too much and it will get greasy. If you like to air dry don't be alarmed by the odd feeling that will go away once your hair is dry.
You really can't get much better than this creme. Coconut oil is so great of the hair and this leave-in also has hemp. This is the healthiest creme you'll find for your hair.
It may take a few days to adjust but give it time and you will love it.
I've found this product works really well for one specific purpose. After I blow dry, I use a large curling iron to flip out the ends. If I put a tiny bit of this styling lotion on the ends before applying the iron, it helps keep the ends looking textured and not flyaway, holds the curl pretty well, and doesn't get stringy, greasy, or weighed down throughout the day, like every other styling product I've tried. My hair even still has body and shape the next day.
I'm on my second bottle, and I'll repurchase. However, I haven't been able to make it work using any other method. It's horrible as a texturizer without heat styling, and if I put it on without blowdrying, my hair becomes a greasy, stringy mess. But for use with the iron, it's perfect. I like the smell too---I use the peppermint.
UPDATE 6/13: I recently went back to this product and I like it better than I did the first time. I started using Nioxin, which gives body to my fine, thin hair, but also makes it fluffy and flyway. I use a pea- or dime- sized amount of the Dr. Bronner's cream before blowdrying, and it makes my hair smooth, almost glossy. Plus the peppermint smell works well with the minty Nioxin smell.
