This is the only cheap product that i am ok with putting on my hair. Really, my hair doesn`t like cheap stuff. But this one is so easy, simple, only like $2, and works pretty well for moisturizing and detangling. Not to mention, you can buy it everywhere. I am not crazy about it but it is a decent product. Oh, next time I will try it as a leave in conditioner, people seem to like it that way too. I do think it is worth a try, you will not waste a ton of money if it is not you cuppa tea. :-)
I have tried co washing before with terrible results - limp and greasy hair. After doing some research online, I discovered that cheaper conditioners are better for co washing - they are "watery" and do not have silicones that can coat the hair. More expensive and "deep conditioning" conditioners will leave your hair without body. It seems that Suave and VO5 are favorites with the co washing crowd. Well, for less than 2 bucks, I thought I would try it again. I knew that curly haired girls love to co wash, but my hair is straight colored Asian hair, so I really had my doubts. Wet my hair thoroughly, put a generous blob on, worked it in, and washed the rest of my body. Rinsed well and blow dried my hair as usual. Much better results!!! My hair is smooth, not tangled, manageable, and best of all, not greasy and limp. The conditioner had a pleasant smell. I will definitely be using this - maybe every other wash.
I CO-wash my hair and this is my HG for CO-washing. It doesn't leave my scalp itchy like other conditioners. It leaves my hair moisturized and looks great after it dries.
My Tips for CO-washing: Take a palmful of conditioner and apply it to scalp. Rub it in like I would with shampoo. Take a small palmful and apply it to the rest of my hair piled on top of my head and rub it in. Then I clip my hair on top of my head and shave, wash face, etc. Take the clip out and add a little water into my hair. Then I lather my hair up. Afterwards, I rinse by flipping my head upside down in the water and rubbing my scalp and hair to get the conditioner out. Rinsing is key! Then I flip my hair back up and rinse again.
Super cheap, works great as a shaving lotion. Need more moisture for my hair though.
This is the only conditioner I've used since I discovered it last year thanks to the beauty blogging and information sharing world. Cheap and great. I use the conditioner every time I shower but only wash my hair every second time or so. Voila, bouncy wavy soft hair. I thin it out with some water as a leave in, too. Prefer it to Deva Curl's really expensive conditioner. I do clarify my hair once a month or so and that keeps it 'working' well.
As a teenager, this was the best thing ever for doing the Curly Girl method. It's really thin so I could use it for co-washing. It also worked well as leave-in whenever I ran out of Giovanni or ABBA (under homemade Flax Seed Gel). If you have curly hair but no access to targeted curly hair products, definitely give this a shot.
I don't find it moisturizing enough to use alone on dry, chemically processed hair. I don't think that it's colour-safe as it doesn't claim to be.
After all the positive comments, I decided to give it a try. Will come back soon and tell what I think
I used to use this as a leave in protector for my hair when going swimming. I would wet my hair and generously apply this before either braiding or putting my long hair in a bun. After swimming either in the lake or pool my hair still felt pretty healthy and this helped it not absorb too much chlorine. Also after swimming at the lake I would put some of this in to help detangle until I could wash my hair properly. I like the sweet smell even though its artificial it always reminds me of summer
It did nothing to my hair. Very cheap quality. Hair got oily by the end of the day which normally doesn't happen when I use any other brand. I won't recommend this product.
Yep, the good old suave coconut. I love this stuff. I've got waist-length, dry hair, and I use this as a "shield" on the lower 3/4 of my hair. Basically, soak the lower, dry half of your hair in this stuff, then I shampoo (sulfate free, please!) my scalp and top bits of my hair. This conditioner prevents my shampoo from drying out the long, dry part of my hair, and works great to keep it soft. If my hair isn't too dry, I'll also re-condition my whole head and length with this stuff, and cold-rinse to finish my hair-washing. Luckily it's cheap enough that you can afford to use gobs and gobs of it, and my hair is never oily after use. This is my favorite 'light' conditioner, ever. I keep coming back to this, for years.
Even when my hair is super-dry, I still use this as a shampoo-shield. I love the smell (even if it's fake coconut smell) and I know I'm not wasting a more expensive product that does the same thing. After, I just use a different conditioner before my final rinse. No sulfate, no silicone, light protein, just what long, dry hair needs to prevent further dryness and damage. I recommend always cold-rinsing, and touching up after the shower with a very very small amount of coconut oil to tame unruly ends. I can't believe such a valuable product is so damn cheap. Lucky us!
