I love this conditioner!! I am a new devotee of 'Curly Girl' a book by Lorraine Massey, and this conditioner has all the qualities she recommends, and doesn't have the 'cones' which she doesn't recommend. I just bought my second bottle, and gladly paid $10. in a beauty supply store. I love that it's so fluid because it spreads easily through my hair. I pour some on my hands and rub my palms together and then spread it through my hair, top, then bottom, and then sides, and rinse it out for a few seconds. My hair is the best it's been for years now, shiny and healthy and full of Botticelli curls. The ingredients are pure, too. I'm shocked at the bad reviews!!
This product SUCKS...It's liquidy, has an odd smell, and doesn't condition or moisturize the least bit. It makes no difference whether you put this conditioner in or just skip conditioner all together. This is by far the worst thing I have ever used
I got this product from Target on clearance for $4,50 which was about 50% off. Very disappointed. This conditioner claims to moisturize but I didn't notice any improvement.
I used this until I found the conditioner that I was using normally. It's okay but it needs to be thicker. I feel like when I leave it on it kind of doesn't stay on my hair at all. Then when I wash my hair it's like, "Where is the conditioner I just put". It is pretty good and it smells good too. I would probably get again.
I thought it was a coincidence that my hair was flat and icky the last few days (coincides with when I started using this product). I normally have short, curly, soft and fairly shiny hair.
The conditioner does detangle after the job the shampoo does on it, but it doesn't feel very nice otherwise.
I actually really enjoyed the smell. I bought and have used this with the Super Shiny Shampoo. Overall, am not impressed, and, after seeing the reviews for each product, will not continue to use. Back to Regis Olive Oil line!
Oh I wish i had these reviews with me when I was at Walgreens shopping for new shampoo and conditioner! i bought this for 50% off both the conditioner and shampoo- i tried it this morning and i am for the first time ever, returning both to the store, it is that bad. the conditioner was the opposite of moisturizing, I understand that it is all natural, i love that fact but this is terrible- this helped break up some of the knots caused by the awful shampoo, but not moisturizing enough for a conditioner that is called MORE MOISTURE! the smell does have a plastic aspect to it, not the fresh berry scent you would expect from a natural conditioner with raspberry in it- yuck! this is honestly one of the worst products i have tried, bad enough for me to burn my lunch break on bringing it back to the store for a refund. soo bad. My hair was not soft or easy to comb after i got out of the shower, I lost quite a bit of hair in my comb trying to get the knots out. I would stay away from this, it is that terrible. if i could give this a zero, i would.
My hair: Long, wavy, easily tangled. I have a very sensitive scalp, that can only tolerate natural products.
The Conditioner: It's too thin to do any good. It also has so much sugar (sugar beet, raspberry, strawberry) that is just tangles my hair. It's not moisturizing like it claims, either. I will give it credit that it's free of harsh chemicals and wax, and doesn't irritate my scalp.
I will not be repurchasing. Burt's Bees Super Shiny Shampoo and Conditioner set is so much better than the Raspberry. Try that line instead.

This was the worst conditioner I've ever used. Actually, I had to throw it away after a few uses because it felt as if it was draining the moisture out of my hair. Normally you feel your hair softened and detangled when you leave the conditioner in for a few minutes, with this it was just the opposite. Had to go back to the common drugstore brand...
This is not the worst conditioner I've used. Just not the best. The scent is reminiscent of Givenchy's perfume Hot Couture, which is kind of yummy. This de-tangles hair well (it has to because the BB MM shampoo does nothing but give you tangles-you can read my review of that). I notice that I have to use WAY more of this formula than any other I've used in the past. Normally a small amount works, but with this I keep having to add more because it doesn't spread through my hair. It doesn't feel like it penetrates. It's not a very rich, moisturizing or conditioning formula but seems to work better than the shampoo. It's nice due to the fact that is is sulfate, paraben, etc free but it needs some work. My hair is more straw-like than I'd want. Instead of using it as a conditioner, I use it instead of shampoo once a week with a moisturizing hair treatment (still haven't found one I really like, though). I rub it right in to my scalp and it is light enough that it won't give me any build up. I doubt I'd buy it again once it's gone though.
Edit 12/30: My hair got knotted throughout the day after using this. Although it detangles initially, I think it might be drying out my hair.
I wanted to try a conditioner with more natural ingredients but I had low expectations because I need a good detangler for my fine, always-tangled hair. The package touts this mainly as a conditioner, not a detangler, so I expected it might be heavy and non-efficient in de-knotting. To my surprise, this detangles as well as my Pantene conditioner for blondes, but it smells nicer and it does not weigh my hair down at all or leave it greasy. I wanted to like this because I like several Burt's Bees products-- like the lip balms, the Buttermilk lotion, and the apricot oil and soap, so...yay!
