I used to use Pureology Hydrate shampoo and conditioner but I fell on hard times and had to switch because of the price. I decided to try Kirkland Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner in the 33oz size. I think I paid $9.99 for the shampoo and $7.99 for the conditioner. What was I thinking??? Unfortunately it made my roots greasy and left the length of my hair dry and tangled! If you have long hair like me take my advice and stay away from this.
My hair is thick, coarse, and naturally curly. I blow it out up to 3x per week and it smooths out easily. I tend to look for more moisturizing conditioners because the ends of my hair is more dry than the roots. I find that this conditioner was just average. It did not seem to penetrate and moisturize my hair very well. I have found other drugstore/cheaper brands like Herbal Essence Hello Hydration and Fructis Hydra Recharge conditioners that work better and leave my hair more moisturized. They might not be sulfate free, but I'm becoming convinced that the whole sulfate free trend is not for me.
What a fantastic cheap buy. I got a liter each of the shampoo and conditioner for $25 total and it will probably last me and my husband a year. The shampoo gives the richest lather I've ever gotten from a sulfate-free formula and the conditioner is just divine, thick and creamy but clean rinsing. I've been using the pair of them for about two months and my hair (shoulder length, fine, color treated) just loves it. And it smells like some fantastically decadent dessert. Win-win-win.
$12.49 for a 1 liter plastic pump bottle.
Great daily conditioner that doesn't weigh my hair down. I use 1 pump for my collarbone length hair. I have been using this daily since I got it over 3 months ago and I still have about 60% remaining.
I love this conditioner. Altho I think the scent is quite strong, but the product does wonders. It leaves my hair shiny and soft. After using this for a few time, I have had so many ppl asking me, " why is your hair so shiny?" I LOVE THIS~!. I don't use the same shampoo with this, because i don't like this scent. But i know for sure that this is a great and effective conditioner for my long hair. No split ends what so ever ~!
I love this conditioner. Everything about it. The price,the way it smells, the way it makes my hair feel. This stuff is amazing in my book. I always have a bottle in my shower : )
I was so hopeful for this conditioner and for a while it was great. The scent is wonderful and actually stays with me for a day or 2. It is really thick and moisturizing but... jees is it possible for your hair to get "used to" products? Before I was half way through the bottle my hair stopped responding to the moisture and began to dry out again. Used it on my daughter's long, thick, curly hair and it did wonders in detangeling her hair for several weeks and then it stopped being effective for her as well. Too bad.
It was ok...smells and feels like Pureology Nanoworks but ingredients are not even close. It detangles my hair and conditions well but also makes it very flat and gives me some bumps on my shoulders and scalp. I don't think I'll buy it again because it's too heavy for my fine hair and it's loaded with silicones.
Finally, a conditioner that moisturizes and softens without weighing my hair down. I have medium thick hair that gets really flat with other conditioners, but this one lets my hair have bounce. It's not too thick, it has a lovely smell, and I only need two pumps for my shoulder blade-length hair. The price is great ($7.xx/liter) and it's readily available at Costco. HG conditioner for as long as I can buy it.
I did a big review on this and then my iPhone ate it. Durn.
I am looking for the "Hells YES I would buy this again" button because I would and I will. I have very long (waist length), super straight, kinda flat hair with the last five or six inches that are seriously frizzy, poofy, split-ended and pissed off due to a variety of outdoorsy sports. (Yes, I should get a heavy cut, I know this. It's a husband thing. Talk to him.) I wash my hair every other day or so because while the ends are dried out bitches, my scalp can get a little greasy/dirty.
I have tried many serums and sprays and the like trying to get those rotten manky monkey ends under control. Usually they just laugh and go on their merry way, leaving me to bun/ponytail my hair up most of the time. In comes the Kirkland Sulfate Free shampoo/condish (marketed under Moisturzing Conditioner, but this one has no sulfates, I checked)
First off, the smell (as noted below) is a dupe for VS Amber Romance, which is not your usual fruity or floral hair product smell. I like it...when the temp heats up, it floats around you in this sexy-zexy aroma that's not strong enough to clash with your perfume but enough that you can whiff it every now and then from your head.
The lather of the shampoo is very fine and very dense...like what a Guinness black-and-tan foam head looks like. And it cleans the hell out of your hair without stripping it (a bonus for those nefarious ends).
The conditioner has a lot of slip in the shower, and here's the only bad part: it is absolutely stuffed to the screaming with silicones (the second ingredient after water is cyclomethicone). I know 'cones coat your hair. I know they don't do anything to treat it. I know they aren't anything good for your hair. I know, I know, I KNOW!!!
However, that being said, when your hair is in the sorry-ass craptastic state like mine is, you'll take whatever you can get. I'm not gonna quit boarding and biking and jetskiing, so I use this as damage control after the fact. I do use a coconut oil deep treatment about once a week, and that's my heavy moisturizing "mask". Now that I use this duo, I'm just happy my mane isn't poofing all over the place or prickling my waist with those demonic split ends. To rectify the 'cone buildup, I wash my hair with 'cone-free poo/condish once a week and suffer through the angry hair for a few days.
I also reviewed this on the strength of the poo/condish alone. For some reason, I get irritated when someone says they washed/conditioned, then added XYZ serum or spray or oil. A true review is just the products in the review, because who knows if your serum or spray or oil is responsible for the aftereffects? So, with that in mind, I used this duo and let mah hair air-dry. I could actually pull a comb through it wet (something I wouldn't EVER DARE do with other combos). It dried in the average length of time without any kinks, knots, tangles, dreadlocks or other fearsome beasties that I've sadly become accustomed to. After I tried it alone, I tried using it (alternately) with some coconut oil on the ends, some Amika Obliphica oil on the ends, and some spray laminator (I forget what kind) on the ends. All of them worked well, but actually weren't necessary anyway.
So, all in all, a great (and CHEAP) poo/dish combo that works really well on your hair, smells good, and has lasting effects. If the 'cones really bug you, clarify once a week, then continue to enjoy the effects on your hair. Love. HG status. Never discontinue or I will become horribly upset and do...something...
