I love the straight conditioner so I thought I would give this a try.
Eeeek. The smell is disgusting, and the conditoner made my dry, damaged platinum blonde hair [I have extensions also] a gross, oily, sticky mess. It was way too moisturizing for my hair, and I have never encountered that problem with any conditoner! I'm stuck with using it every two weeks, every week and a half maybe. Definately will not repurchase.
I like this conditioner, it does a nice job of making my hair soft and healthy looking, but the peppermint is a bit much for me.
My forehead looks red when I hop out of the shower.
I like the straightening conditioner better.
This is a lot like the old Abba Three Minute Miracle Conditioner. I love the mint scent of this one, and it does work wonders, but why is it SO EXPENSIVE? Lippie off for the price!
Love this conditioner!!! After the first time I used this stuff, I was hooked! I immeditately saw improvement in my dry over-processed hair. My hair was softter than ever. The price is definitely steep, but I think it's worth it.
Nice minty scent and love the tingly feeling it gives the scalp. Great results when used with the Hydrate shampoo. My color-treated wavy hair was left shiny with minimal frizz and not weighed down.
Prior to my discovery of PureOlogy's nanoworks line, this was my all-time favorite conditioner.
I used this mostly with the matching hydrate shampoo, but I also used the purifying shampoo 1-2 times a week.
I think this is an excellent conditioner, it helped to preserve my hair color (when my hair was colored) and kept my hair nice and hydrated so that it was smooth and shiny. I never found that this made my hair too oily, or weighed it down, even though I applied it to my roots as well as the body of my hair.
I do believe that the nanoworks conditioner is superior, but the one thing that I will miss from using this conditioner is the amazingly refreshing smell and tingly feeling. Especially when I used this after the purifying shampoo my hair felt really clean and refreshed - they're a great combo.
The best thing about this conditioner is the super-tingly feeling it produces on the scalp. Feels cool and soothing. Otherwise, this is a fairly mediocre salon conditioner and seriously overpriced for what you get. It moisturizes, but also seems to leave my hair too soft and limp, with flyaways. Note that even though this is marketed as a natural product, it does have silicones in it, which can cause buildup that the sulfate-free shampoos in this line will not remove over time. There are much better moisturizing conditioners out there like Terax Crema, which is cone-free and doesn't kill the volume in my hair. Pureology is ok, but I wouldn't repurchase.
This is my staple conditioner. It feels like im in a spa when i use it! I massage it into my scalp and it has an awesome cooling effect. Its very soothing. Even without the menthol it is a wonderful condtioner, its very moisturizing and smells great. And you only need a very very small amount so the expense isnt an issue.
Like the matching shampoo, my biggest complaint is the price. I think it is over priced....but maybe I'm cheap! But I will buy this again. It makes my hair so soft, and it feels so good tingling on my scalp. I think it does add a bit of shine to my hair too. It doesn't strip hair color, which was the reason I bought it. I was using (and loving) Sunsilk Thermashine shampoo/condtioner/leave-in but I wasn't sure that it wouldn't hurt my hair color...so I decided I'd better open the wallet and buy something that at least my salon would say was safe for my colored hair....in case the color should have faded. I don't need to use very much of this, so it will last awhile....it doesn't rinse super easy, but feels so silky as it rinses out of my hair....ah....off to go run my fingers through my hair! :)
This is my HG conditioner. It untangles, smoothens, straightens, and makes color pop. It literally revives hair and it is by far the best conditioner I have used (and Ive used a LOT!). However the price is something I cannot get over so I have switched to Rusk with comparable but not exactly identical results.
When I have the money I will be returning to this product. It has a menthol type action but I dont even use conditioner at my roots so that is not an issue for me. It does make your scalp tingle but that is a GOOD thing because the tingling increases circulation to the scalp. A little tingling wont hurt anyone, and when you get used to it it feels great.
This is one of the highest recommended professional hair care products and nothing short of a spectacular miracle performer. Too bad it costs an arm and a leg :(
On the plus side its shampoo is just OK and so I can balance cost by using this with a cheaper shampoo.
