I live in a humid city and makes my hair fizzy all the time. As always, I'm always look out any conditoner to smooth the fizziness and dry ends. As I had a great experience with Matrix Sleek Look, therefore I brought this without any hesitation.
Firstly, the conditoner smells divine. It has a very nice relaxing and orange scent. The scent lasts on my hair throughout the day.
Indeed, it helps my hair in terms of smoothness and softness. However, my hair is just as dry and fizzy. I've tried to applied more than the usual amount and leave in for 5 minutes but still the same results. It's not as good as I expected for my dry hair. I guess hunt down continues for the right conditioner.
I would like to note that I bought a duo at State Beauty Supply; therefore, my price differentiates from most.
Texture and density makes it hard to get out.
Makes my hair soft and frizz-free.
I love the conditioner and have yet to try the shampoo...I was using TIGI's Bedhead Urban Antidotes Level 3 Resurrection beforehand, but I'm glad I made the change.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this conditioner (and the corresponding shampoo) after purchasing it during a liter sale. I thought it the height of stupidity to purchase a liter of conditioner because as a general rule I am not lucky with conditioners that are supposed to "match" a shampoo. I have colored porous fine hair that is curly and so I need a conditioner with some gravitas to it. This conditioner has a wonderful fairly thick consistency that then works to actually help soak into the hair shaft, making it smooth and less frizzy after rinse out. Works well for my hair.
I tried a sample of this and was very pleased! It took away my fizziness and didn't weigh my hair down. I am shampooing the DIY way with baking soda and water,then a apple cider vinegar rinse. I apply this conditioner on the bottom half of my long,thick hair(not on scalp) for a few minutes then rinse. I have found I can go every other day to shampoo because I still have body the next day! Biolage shampoos have always seemed to be a good line , so I feel like I am using one of the best products for my hair. I got a good buy at Ulta with a coupon on the large size. Since it doesn't take much ,it will last a while. I am very pleased to find a conditioner that smooths, and adds shine, but doesn't take the volume out!
I use this with the matching shampoo. It leaves my fine, dry hair soft and managable. I would not repurchase because for the price, I can find cheaper alternataives that work just as well for me.
This has a high amount of oils in it, yet it made my hair soft and super curly after my hair air-dried. My hair didn't feel greasy at all. It did take away some volume, but with my thick hair, sometimes I need it. I will not use this daily, except when I feel like my hair needs extra control or when I use my flat-iron. It definitely helps a lot with frizz, especially surface frizz. This has a slight lemony scent that is very light unlike the shampoo which I found it hard to pick up a scent for some reason. The trick is not to apply this conditioner too much to your scalp if you are prone to a greasy scalp like I am. This has a thick and rich consistency so you also don't have to use a lot either.
I only used this a few times, but definitely noticed a softness and shine to my hair that wasn't previously there. However, I've been using a few new products, including Alterna's bamboo oil and Fekkai PrX..this is definitely worth a shot if you have very dry and damaged hair. It's a little pricey, and personally I would recommend Fekkai PrX system over this! Would repurchase if on sale, though!
Itchy scalp after use. Left a film on my scalp and I think triggered my perioral dermatitis. Was it the high oil content in the ingredient list? After one day my hair smelled dirty, not sure if oil or other ingredients created a yeast overgrowth. Also, there is a lot of cinnamon type ingredients which can be very irritating. Cinnamon can trigger eczema and perioral dermititis. I found some ingredeint lists stating that this conditioner also has mineral oil and some where it's not listed. Lots of other oils in this conditioner--oils that seem to provoke seborhhea, build-up, smelly scalp, etc. Not ever using again!
I received this as a Christmas gift. First off, my hair is super thick, frizzy, and wavy. Combine that with hair dying and it's a dry damaged mess. I use deep conditioner every day. I always buy the cheap drugstore brands because well, it's cheap and my hair soaks up conditioner. I basically use up half the tube in one showering. But this stuff has changed my mind. I've only used this twice with the shampoo and I love it. I only need to use about a quarter sized amount and it glides trough my hair effortlessly. Since it has oil in it, I avoid my roots and apply it from the mid part of my hair to the roots. I leave it on for a few minutes and rinse out and my hair feels amazing. Once it dries it looks even better. It still looks damaged, but a lot better than when I use the drugstore stuff. When I brush out my hair it's nice and smooth and easy to brush through and not frizzy at all. Which was definitely not the case before. I will invest the money and buy this again. It outranks any drugstore conditioner I've ever tried.
Bought this on sale as a holiday gift set - shampoo and conditioner. Extremely pleased. Minimal to no smell, extremely moisturizing and makes bleached damaged hair look good. Will keep buying. I was more impressed with the conditioner though.
