This has been one of my favorite conditioners for the past 15 years and I just repurchased a bottle the other day. It smells wonderful and the scent lasts all through the day without being overpowering. It has meadowfoam seed oil, babassu oil, jojoba oil, shea butter and aloe so it's very nourishing to my slightly dry hair. My hair is also fine but dense and wavy, prone to tangles. This conditioner tames the tangles and leaves my hair silky without weighing it down. At only $18 for a 6.7 fl. oz. tube, it's a steal compared to many of the other hair products I use. I do wish it were in a flip top bottle but that's not a big deal. I use it with the Damage Remedy shampoo or Color Conserve Shampoo.

Great light-midweight conditioner with a singularly Divine scent.
Probably not suitable for those who need daily intense conditioning. I rotate it with other conditioners, as I have color treated fine hair. I use this on a "lighter conditioner" day, usually after a heavier treatment with the previous shampoo.
Pairs beautifully with the Pure-Fume Brilliant shampoo.
Wonderful way to begin the day, the aromatherapy is incredible.

This would be ideal for perfectly healthy, non-color treated hair. With denser, curly, color treated hair like mine, this conditioner doesn't provide enough moisture. So not much of a conditioner at all. After using it twice, I am putting it aside and back to my Redken All Soft, with the All Soft deep conditioner once a week. Much better. I will save this as a light conditioner for after a clarifying shampoo. Does work well at making hair look shiny though!

this is the BEST product line for dense, thick, dry, wavy/curly hair. my hair soaks it up but doesn't get weighed down. it tames it. i loooove it.

Me: coarse dry color treated hair.
I wanted to love this product, but my hair needs more moisture than Brilliant provides. I adore the scent and the conditioner itself is really thick, but I have to use so much to even coat all of my hair that it isn't worth buying the small bottle. I'm not about to spend $67 on the litre. I think this would be better suited for someone with normal hair in good condition. It did make my hair super shiny and smell amazing though. Will not repurchase.

I use this with the Shampure shampoo because I need a little more of a conditioning effect than the Shampure conditioner offered.
The scent on this reminds me of an air freshener my sister uses in her apartment. It's not unpleasant, but not the herbal scent that I've come to enjoy from Aveda's products.
This conditioner is on the thin side, but does condition very well. My hair is below hip length and very straight, and it feels quite silky after it's dried.
This product is also ridiculously expensive. $67.50 for a large bottle? I treated myself after finishing a very tough semester, but it was tough to see that on the receipt. I think I'll try another product when this bottle runs out.

I reviewed the shampoo and I feel the same about the conditioner, nice herby smell but not moisturising enough for my dry & coloured hair type. I won't repurchase.

I don't really like this conditioner much at all. I have chemichally treated, but pretty healthy hair so I don't need a very rich conditioner for everyday use. I don't think it really does anything for my hair, and I expected more from the reviews here. My hair does'nt feel soft or shiny and it's probably the only conditioner I know of which does'nt do that. But the worst thing is the smell...I hate it, it smells like a bad christmas-scented candle and when I sleep with my hair next to my face I almost can't sleep.

I use this with the shampoo and other Aveda products. Its a great conditioner and leaves my hair feeling really soft and volumous. I only use this on the tips of my hair as per my hairdresser's instructions and I believe this helps with the prevention of split ends especially when I heat style my hair on an almost daily basis.

I used this with the Brilliant shampoo and it left my hair very shiny and bouncy, and pretty thick and voluminous. What I didn't like was the consistency, it doesn't really adhere to your hair. I found that it kept falling off like jello, and I really had to mash it into my strands. This was not only annoying but risky to use because some just fell off during application and down the drain. You don't get a huge tube for the price and you could easily achieve the same results with other conditioners out there.

Not as good as the shampoo, this is an ultralight conditioner which wouldn't really cut it alone. As long as you alternate with a good deep-condish, it it the best smelling detangler ever. Horrendously expensive here (27 euro) but I love the smell.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Love it!! I use it several times a week, along with the matching shampoo. Nice, enlivening scent that helps wake me up. Does a good conditioning job. Only complaint is the packaging... hard to get the last of it out of the tube.

I've used this for years and keep going back to it after I get the urge to try somehting new. This one never fails. Does not weigh hair down and smells great. Hair seems way more managable!

Really nice medium weight conditioner. I don't find it too heavy, just the right amount. Really makes my hair feel moisturized and healthy. My hair feels very soft and has shine from using this conditioner. Love the scent as well!

I have curly *extremely* fine bi-racial hair that I'm trying to take better care of. I've tried ALL of the drugstore brands including some of the salon-to-drugstore brands(Nexxus) and have been coming back to the Aveda Brilliant line when I just want my hair to feel moisturized and healthy. Period.
It's interesting to read all the various reviews - some find it too heavy, some find it too light. I find this conditioner to be just plain good. My hair doesn't feel coated or heavy, nor does it feel dry and fly away. It feels smooth & soft and has a healthy shine to it. I always notice the difference when I try other products. My hair just doesn't feel as healthy and happy as when I use the Aveda.
I often use this as a leave-in as well, sometimes mixed with a bit of virgin coconut oil when my hair is extra dry.
I gave the Brilliant Conditioner 4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons -
1)The smell. While I like it some days, on others it's overwhelming and unpleasant. Sometimes I just want to smell clean. Or like fruit. lol But none of my "fruity" or "soapy" smelling hair products work as well as the Aveda so I tolerate it.
2)The price. It's true you get what you pay for and this is well worth the cost, but I still wish it weren't so expensive. :-/
Will repurchase when I run out, but I bought the giant litre jug with the pump, so that won't be for a long time.

Wonderful medium-weight conditioner that leaves my hair soft and shiny, plus no breakout. Love the sandalwood smell too. I only apply a tiny amount on the ends.

This conditioner does not feel as though it does one thing for my hair. My hair feels and behaves exactly the same way on days when I use it and days when I do not. Also, it has a very strong almost woodsy scent. I love the tube/bottle design, and I wish all thickish conditioners were sold this way, but I will not be rebuying.

I love this conditioner along with the shampoo. I give both great reviews. I wrote a review for the shampoo; that goes ditto for the conditioner.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This product smells great and I want to love it, but it weighs my hair down too much, even when just using a little.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Great overall daily conditioner! Perfect for my straight blonde hair. The shopgirl said that it is a very, heavy rich moisturizer. She was wrong. It's just a great everyday moisturizing conditioner.
