I have to wash my scalp everyday per dr's orders. I put this conditioner in it when I'm done rinsing out the shampoo, and pile it on top of my head with a banana clip. Then, after finishing in the shower, I put on body lotion, wash my face, brush my teeth and only then queeze out the excess conditioner. It's quite watery, so I don't find I need to rinse it out. But it's all the moisturizing I need and doesn't feel too heavy. It's great as an everyday product.
I've used this conditioner since middle school. I'm not sure if they've changed the ingredients/formula over the years, it seems to have the same smell and performance overall. I usually use this conditioner when I use Snowy's Moisture Treatment (a moisturizing treatment recipe found on LHC). My hair smells good, my hair is tangle free and pretty much conditioned. It's cheap and you get a good amount. I'll keep repurchasing.
This conditioner felt watered down and it didn't feel like my hair absorbed much of it. It's a very average conditioner.
-leaves a great sheen on the hair
-not as moisturizing as some higher-end brands
This conditioner is the one I go back to again and again for it's price as well as the fact that it works. I have curly, course, dry hair, and this stuff actually works - even diluted. I originally started using this conditioner to co-wash, but found that I prefer clarifying conditioners for co-washing and use this instead as an all-over conditioner when I co-wash. Despite being diluted 50:50 with water, this stuff leaves my black curls glossy, moisturized, and bouncy. I keep coming back to it for conditioning when I co-wash. I've tried so many conditioners I'm not sure I could list them all, but this one really works.
I'd also like to point out that the coconut one specifically works, not necessarily the others. I've found that the coconut extract in this one is why it's moisturizing, as I've have not had such luck with the other Suave conditioners.
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.
