Totally utterly ineffective at hydrating my hair. I had to use a load of it each time so I used it up very quickly. My hair ended up with frizzy fly away strands at the front, and was lank and heavy and dull elsewhere. My hair was NOT shiny or healthy looking.
Over time I felt my hair got slimier and slimier when wet and there was gradual ickky build up.
Annoyingly utterly disappointing. A total waste of time and money. This product needs a total overhaul and some advanced technology inserted into it STAT.
The only good thing? The smell was likable.
I definitely think Kerastase, L'oreal and Paul Mitchell are way superior hair care brands.
I liked this, but the fragrance was too much for me. And for my abundant, fine hair, I think that continued use would start to dry my hair out, since my hair doesn't respond well to silicones. Also, my skin didn't respond well to the conditioning agents, my hands were quite red and a little swollen, but the bigger issue, as I said is, while the smell is nice, it completely overpowered me..I'll stick with Biolage Conditioning Balm. However, if you can tolerate silicones and the fragrance, this is a nice conditioner.
This has been one of my favorite conditioners for the past 15 years and I just repurchased a bottle the other day. It smells wonderful and the scent lasts all through the day without being overpowering. It has meadowfoam seed oil, babassu oil, jojoba oil, shea butter and aloe so it's very nourishing to my slightly dry hair. My hair is also fine but dense and wavy, prone to tangles. This conditioner tames the tangles and leaves my hair silky without weighing it down. At only $18 for a 6.7 fl. oz. tube, it's a steal compared to many of the other hair products I use. I do wish it were in a flip top bottle but that's not a big deal. I use it with the Damage Remedy shampoo or Color Conserve Shampoo.
Great light-midweight conditioner with a singularly Divine scent.
Probably not suitable for those who need daily intense conditioning. I rotate it with other conditioners, as I have color treated fine hair. I use this on a "lighter conditioner" day, usually after a heavier treatment with the previous shampoo.
Pairs beautifully with the Pure-Fume Brilliant shampoo.
Wonderful way to begin the day, the aromatherapy is incredible.
This would be ideal for perfectly healthy, non-color treated hair. With denser, curly, color treated hair like mine, this conditioner doesn't provide enough moisture. So not much of a conditioner at all. After using it twice, I am putting it aside and back to my Redken All Soft, with the All Soft deep conditioner once a week. Much better. I will save this as a light conditioner for after a clarifying shampoo. Does work well at making hair look shiny though!
this is the BEST product line for dense, thick, dry, wavy/curly hair. my hair soaks it up but doesn't get weighed down. it tames it. i loooove it.
Me: coarse dry color treated hair.
I wanted to love this product, but my hair needs more moisture than Brilliant provides. I adore the scent and the conditioner itself is really thick, but I have to use so much to even coat all of my hair that it isn't worth buying the small bottle. I'm not about to spend $67 on the litre. I think this would be better suited for someone with normal hair in good condition. It did make my hair super shiny and smell amazing though. Will not repurchase.
I use this with the Shampure shampoo because I need a little more of a conditioning effect than the Shampure conditioner offered.
The scent on this reminds me of an air freshener my sister uses in her apartment. It's not unpleasant, but not the herbal scent that I've come to enjoy from Aveda's products.
This conditioner is on the thin side, but does condition very well. My hair is below hip length and very straight, and it feels quite silky after it's dried.
This product is also ridiculously expensive. $67.50 for a large bottle? I treated myself after finishing a very tough semester, but it was tough to see that on the receipt. I think I'll try another product when this bottle runs out.
I reviewed the shampoo and I feel the same about the conditioner, nice herby smell but not moisturising enough for my dry & coloured hair type. I won't repurchase.
I don't really like this conditioner much at all. I have chemichally treated, but pretty healthy hair so I don't need a very rich conditioner for everyday use. I don't think it really does anything for my hair, and I expected more from the reviews here. My hair does'nt feel soft or shiny and it's probably the only conditioner I know of which does'nt do that. But the worst thing is the smell...I hate it, it smells like a bad christmas-scented candle and when I sleep with my hair next to my face I almost can't sleep.
