i bought this on a whim because of the smell and deal i was receiving. my hair is fine, straight/wavy, medium length (middle of shoulder blade) damaged, and color treated. a lot of conditioners labeled as moisturizing didnt really make my hair feel moisturized, but left it somewhat soft and weighed down. i used this along with the shampoo made my hair soft, shiny, and moisturized, with body! i brought this along with me to my sisters house, and she loves it too! ( she has fine, long, curly, highlighted and color treated hair)
then i colored my hair red and was using a color protecting shampoo/conditioner and forgot all about this sitting in my beauty closet with many other shampoos/conditioners. (im a shampoo/conditioner junkie) until i wanted to see what would happen if i used this as a conditioner only wash. the result? awesome! my scalp doesnt feel oily or heavy a few days after using this (i try to wash my hair 2-3x a week to prevent my temporary color on top from fading)
I bought a large 1 litre bottle of this on offer at TK Maxx, having loved other Paul Mitchell products in the past. This one, I'm not loving. My hair seems to tangle more quickly than before, all the time. It also does little to tame my frizz. As to whether it has strengthened my hair or not...maybe? But if I'm constantly struggling to brush tangles out, I'm undoing any good that it may have done. Considering the size of the bottle, it would benefit from a pump dispenser also. Not for me.
I have damaged hair from dying it over the years. I have stopped dying it for over 6 months now, and don't plan on dying again in the near future, but the damage left from before is very evident. This conditioner has really helped. Mind you, I get trims every 3 months and don't use heat styling ever, so that helps too.
I usually condition my hair at night, go to bed with wet hair, and wake up with dry string bubblegum like hair at the ends. BUT when I use this conditioner at night, I wake up with smooth and strong hair. I normally only use high end hair products because they are the only ones that actually work for me, and this conditioner is an addition to those that work well for my damaged hair. I got it on sale for $15. Good buy. Would I buy again? Yes, but I always, no matter what, buy a different conditioner after I am done with a bottle of a different one. I like to switch it up so my hair doesn't get used to the compounds.
Oh, and my hairdresser who is from Italy, has won various awards, and has been in the business for 25 years said my hair feels much stronger and healthier since ive been using this conditioner. Moral of the story- it's good. Try it.
Love this conditioner - I have long highlight hair that is an too tangly after shampooing. This does the job and helps me to get a comb through it. Leaves my hair clean and shiny. Would recommend a weekly moisturising mask in addition.
EDIT: Have just knocked a lippie off because over time my hair became dry because this conditioner is not moisturising enough
I used this with the super strong shampoo and I saw no difference in the condition of my damaged hair. My hair dresser recommended this and she also told me to leave it on for awhile on the days that I wasn't busy so I did. My hair still stayed a tangled mess.
i have overprocessed hair and when its wet its basically like spaghetti. this is the only conditioner ive tried that literally STRENGTHENS my hair. no more spaghetti ends :) smell is pleasent and makes my hair soft!!
My HG for anyone that has fine to medium hair and has done some damage to it. I have finer hair and love that this doesn't weigh it down and make it feel greasy but very clean and moisturized after I use it. The scent is light and clean and a little goes a long way.
This conditioner has a convenient flip-top cap, and a pleasant smell that's not overpowering. It softens & silkens my fine, thin, colored, mid-back-length hair (but then again, all conditioners do this). Otherwise, it hasn't "strengthened" my hair, reduced breakage, or lessened the amount of hair lost in shower. I guess I gotta keep searching... =(
I love this conditioner. I've tried every conditioner (and shampoo) going, from high street brands to high end products. I'm sticking with the Paul Mitchell products, as I like the clarifying shampoo and the don't test on animals. I also like the plain packaging.
I only put this on the very ends, as I get oily roots. It made ends very sleek, shiny and heavy, instead of dull, dry and flyaway.
I am soooo pleased with this conditioner! I've always been jealous of those girls with supppper shiny hair that never seems to get oily and looks gorgeous allll the time. My hair IS healthy but never seemed to have the shine that these girls hair had. I went to Winners to buy some new shampoo and conditioner because they always have great deals. I found this on clearance for $15 for a 1 litre bottle. GREAT DEAL! I'm so happy I picked this up because I now have that shiny hair I've always been envious of. The conditioner has a faint lovely smell to it and is very rich and creamy. I usually leave it on for 2 mins and rinse it out and voila beautiful hair... It doesn't leave any fimly residue or anything. I have a lot of hair but my hair is really thin... so I'm happy that this doesnt weigh it down.. I just get gorgeous volume and shine. I wish that the bottle had a pump on it because it is quite bulky and heavy but thats okay.. I can always transfer it to a different bottle. great conditioner.. highly recommend!
