I don't understand the high rating for this conditioner. I don't like it for the following reasons:
1. It's expensive--$22 for 7 oz, and I have to use quite a bit if I expect to be able to get a comb through my hair.
2. It doesn't smell good. I find the smell sort of medicinal, which sometimes I find with lavender.
3. The texture is sort of strange. It doesn't have that slippery feel that almost every conditioner I've ever used has.
4. It doesn't detangle well, even if I leave it on for the full 5 minutes.
It doesn't weigh my hair down, which is why I didn't give it 1 star, but my hair is so dry and frizzy after I use it that I am always so disappointed. I am looking forward to using it up.

I have long straight, medium thick hair. My scalp gets a little bit greasy.
I use the conditioner as a mask once a month and I also use honey & hibiscus hair reconstructor once a month.
I find the avocado less moisturizing then the honey & hibiscus hair.
It makes my hair soft for 2 days. Nice smell and nice ingredients. If you have dry hair this would be perfect to use as a moistursing booster. If you have super dry hair would recommend the honey & hibiscus.
I have and will still repurchase them both.

This is a wonderful organic conditioner. It detangles like no other, without weighing down my fine hair (with a greasy tendency). I only need a tiny amount, so I feel it is worth the $30, given how much better my hair looks.

Now this is a super heavy-duty conditioner! That said, it really doesn't weigh my hair down (which is fine, but there's a lot of it). I use it maybe once a month as a treatment rather than as a usual product. For long hair, I only really need about a pea-sized amount which I spread between my hands first and then lightly smooth through, concentrating on the ends. It's particularly good in the winter time when my hair can get very static-y. I love the smell of this one too!

Smells great, left hair really smooth and frizz free (even after airdrying).

For me, the results of this conditioner are atypical of organic and natural haircare products. I get super shiny and smooth hair that has a bit of bounce two days later, even though I have very fine and limp hair. Smells good, but I do have to use two dollops to really untangle and conditioner the length of my hair. I alternate between this and the detangler. I'm a really big fan of John Masters products -- although mostly natural products don't work on my very sensitive skin, I'm really impressed with how this line leaves my hair in healthy condition that seems only to improve. The results are cumulative, and definitely worth the slight expense over "organic" brands like Giovanni or similar.

I use this as a pre-blowdry product - just rub a bit in hands and into ends of hair. My hair is dry, coarse and curly and this left it manageable and shiny.
I haven't tried it as a washout conditioner tho.
I will def. buy again.

I'm writing this review after finishing one bottle of this conditioner. And i have to admit that so far it's the best natural conditioner i've had. Now i'm using Alaffia Organic Coconut and Shea Butter, but i can feel the difference - it doesn't make my wavy unruly hair that soft and that silky as John Master's one. I'm almost sure that i'll make it my everyday conditioner, while using Alaffia once a week or so! Recommend to those with dry and unruly hair!
UPDATE: Best conditioner so far! (tried 2 more natural and organic ones..)

I was expecting miracles from this product after my hair stylist ranted and raved about it and convinced me to buy this for my dry hair during the winter months. I used a little more than a quarter size (its expensive) and not only did it not even cover my ends it didn't have any affect on my hair. The next time I used the product I used a lot, maybe an ounce even and it left my hair soft and a little more hydrated, but I can't imagine anyone that can afford to use that much everytime. .... I really need a good condition that isn't going to cost me a bundle. Avocadoes are expensive, but at this price you are better off making some guac and putting it on your hair.

Can't believe I didn't review this one sooner! This is a staple product for me - curly, dray hair. Is it more expensive than I'd like? Yes, but I'd rather pay a few bucks more for something that's high quality. This has certainly helped my hair as well as my scalp, which tends towards irritation and flakiness. Because it combs through easily I don't have to use a ton, despite super thick hair. Lavender isn't my favorite smell, but the scent isn't overpowering.
One thing that might be helpful - I have discovered that no one shampoo or conditioner can "save" my ahir and scalp, so those looking for a magic bulet might be disappointed. For one, I highly recommend a shower filter for anyone who doesn't do well with chlorine. Within about 2 weeks you'll definitely notice a difference. Also, once a week I do a cold-pressed oil rub into my scalp and hair pre-shampoo. I follow the shampoo with an apple cidar vinegar rinse (about two cups water and 2 tbs ACV). Then I condition. I'm bothering to get off topic here because for a long time I relied solely on super moisturizing conditioners and was always disappointed. Bringing these other factors into play made all the difference and I realized I can't rely on one magic product!
