I bought this along with the kiwi lime shampoo. My hair is long, straight, fine, color treated. My bangs get very oily so I decided to try it based on good reviews. The shampoo was VERY DRYING. I used the conditioner.... it's VERY thin ..... runny, but felt ok. Once rinsed out my hair was not as easy to comb out .... more tangled. Once it was dry.... I let it air dry ..... my bangs felt very sticky like coated with something so I threw some baby powder on them, ran a blow dryer on them.... that helped a bit. My hair was sooooo frizzy! It was awful. it seemed to be shedding more when I combed it..... I was freaking out :( my daughter said it looked wavy! I would not recommend these at all.
Helps to remove buildup
Makes hair soft
Doesnt help at all with frizz
SUPER runny so you go through a lot real quick
It was just kind decent. I need something that'll help frizz though. I wont re-purchase.
I found it to be a decent product to use to co-wash with. I've tried much better ones, which is why I don't plan on re-purchasing this product again. Also, I'm not rather fond of its smell. As, I do find its smell to a turnoff for me.
I use this to Cowash and it is wonderful. I use VO5 clarifying conditioners on my scalp and use the normal conditioners that are not clarifying to cleanse the rest of my length. I have very long naturally straight hair and this conditioner works very great! It does nto leave any residue and cleans!
I wanted to try CO-washing so I purchased this based on the reviews. CO didn't really work for me. This conditioner is not moisturizing at all and the smell is pretty bad. I'll add this to my pile of rejects, at least it was only $1.
I never thought that I had an issue with build-up as I always assumed your hair would look greasy if you needed a clarifying product ..... my hair was the opposite in that it started to look, dry, frizzy and I had a few sticky pieces. I tried Redken's Hair Cleansing Cream which made my hair worse, but then decided to try VO5's clarifying shampoo and conditioner and could not believe the difference ..... Once a month, I use the shampoo, and conditioner followed by Enjoy's Hair Mask plus I do an apple cider vinegar rinse and my hair looks great ..... it has shine and looks healthy. If you hair is starting to look dry and frizzy, it can be that you need a clarifying product and I highly recommend VO5's clarifying shampoo and conditioner (they are cheap and really work.)
Hands down the best co-wash I've tried! I also use it as a leave in condish and it never feels greasy or heavy, just adds great shine and softness. I like using cheapies for cowashing to save money and VO5 is wayyy better than suave or white rain IMO it's the perfect texture. Reason for one lippy off is its not very moisturizing as a conditioner, but this is why I use it as a cowash/leave in only. That it's clarifying is an added bonus cuz it doesn't build up and leave hair looking dull over time or weighed down & it smells like fresh kiwi! 3b gals you gota try this and all curly gals or guys:)
Thought I would never use VO5 products since I typically go for Aveda and other higher end products. But found this in the shower at a place we have been staying this week and decided to give it a try. It has left my fine and thin hair shiny and easy to manage without weighing it down. The stuff is a little on the runny side, so you have to use a lot, but it's cheap, so who cares. Have not tried co-washing with it yet but based on the raves here I will pick some up when it get home and try it.
This is perfect for me in the summer during high dew points, especially when my scalp gets greasy but the ends of my hair need something for moisture. It is light enough and smells really good. I use it as both a co-wash and leave-in conditioner/ styling product. It does have a thin consistency but it is easy to mix with my favorite hair oils even though I like to use this on it's own too. It gives my hair good shine and definition without being sticky. There is just a little halo frizz sometimes but I just make sure to add a bit more to those parts and I'm set to go. My hair feels soft and best of all a bottle is dirt cheap to buy at any store so I Can use as much as I want without breaking the bank.
