I am so happy that Alba reformulated their hair care lines. They have always been my absolute favorite company except for the hair care which used to be awful. But the new Mango shampoo and conditioner are amazing. The conditioner is comparable to aussie 3 minute miracle for me, if not better since I have really fine hair. Smells better too.
This conditioner is thick and moisturizing, and I actually like it better than the matching shampoo. It rinses clean and leaves my hair feeling soft and luxurious.
This is a great conditioner, but it won't come out of the bottle! The container is too hard to squeeze, and after a few uses you really have to thump it hard to get any out. I gave up in the end. Alba, please change your packaging.
It's not as moisturizing as I would like. But it is a gentle conditioner that does not cause itchiness or breakouts. I also really like the mango scent.
Of the over 20 brands of conditioner I have tried--from $65 Kevin Murphy to $3 Aussie--this is one of my favorites for every day. I love the way it smells, and I like the slip it gives my coarse, wavy hair. Few conditioners really make much of a noticeable difference, but this one does. I love it.
Tried this because I'm trying to avoid some of the chemicals that are so ubiquitous in beauty products. I like most of the Alba products I've used, but this was my first attempt with an Alba hair product, and I'm not impressed. The packaging is cute, but the product doesn't seem to want to come out of the bottle for me, at least not with the smooth, relatively thick bottle and my slippery shower hands. It smells pretty good - like authentic mango, but not terribly strong so it doesn't linger. As a conditioner, this is lacking. It's barely effective as a detangler, with no lasting conditioning properties for my thick, curly hair. The soft, silky feel it gives is very temporary, beginning to disappear before the shower is even over. I'll finish the bottle - it's not damaging my hair - but I won't repurchase.
Along with the honeydew shampoo, this is good for softening and giving a little weight to my thick, medium-textured hair. It smells wonderful and my boyfriend even liked the way it smelled when he would sneak some in the shower. It does moisturize well for me and doesn't leave any residue. It has good ingredients and the bottles are cute. I would buy again.
This product was disgusting and I hated it. It did nothing good for my hair. The only thing I liked about it was that it smelled good. I would never recommend this product to anyone.
I bought several Alba hair care products with my interest in non SLS shampoos. According to the website, This daily use conditioner provides nourishing hydration and refreshes with the aroma of mango nectar. Certified organic aloe and sunflower oil moisturize while tropical nut oils protect and repair. Enriched with shine-enhancing awapuhi for silky, strong, healthy, manageable hair.
I found the conditioner to be thick and did not do a good job of detangling my short to medium length hair. The product did not rinse well and left my hair limp and lifeless. The mango scent was barely noticeable. The product did not come through the opening under the flip top lid and the entire lid had to be removed to access the product.
I bought this product on sale for $3.99 at London Drugs, but really, I won't be repurchasing it at any price.
I fell in love with Alba's honeydew shampoo, so of course I had to try this conditioner. It's great. It moisturizes very well, rinses cleanly and the smell is pleasant (though not as amazing as the shampoo). It's heavy enough for my dry hair but light enough not to leave a film or leave my hair limp. I found the shampoo and conditioner at vitacost.com for around $5.00 apiece. Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous and I love having the bottles in my shower!
UPDATE: I just wanted to add this. I saw that I was about to run out of this conditioner, so instead of going through the hassle of ordering it online I just picked up a replacement at the drugstore. The replacement seemed fine, but the other day I figured I'd use the last little bit of the Alba conditioner. Well, I had THE best hair day I've had in a very long time! After washing my hair at night I put it up in a bun and slept on it damp. In the morning I let my hair down and didn't touch it, just let it do it's thing with no additional products. My hair was shiny and curly with just the right amount of body and I even got a couple of comments on it. Needless to say, I ordered another bottle that night and will continue to until my local stores decide to sell it.
