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!

This conditioner is pretty good, but it's more an everyday conditioner than a deep, intensive conditioner. It could moisturize more deeply. There are better products out there.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Green
This is not as moisturizing as I hoped for. I don't have particularly dry hair, but I need a good conditioner to keep the frizz down, especially when I live in France with the horrible chlorified water.
The smell is okay, but I feel like I need to apply half a tube to get any moisturizing effect at all. I forgot to use it yesterday and I didn't see any difference on my hair.

This product is too expensive in the UK. Actually the whole line of products is too expensive in the uk.
That said, I like this conditioner and if it was half what it currently is in wholefoods I would continue to buy it. At 22 pounds though a product like this which is fine but not a miracle worker can not be justified.

I'm halfway through my second tube of Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner, and I'm still very happy with it. I use it once a week in the summer, twice a week in the winter, to give additional moisture to my hair (wavy-curly, shoulder-length, somewhat dehydrated). If I use it every day, my hair ends up feeling a bit flat. The price is a bit high, but I feel like I'm getting a high quality product. The packaging is simple and handy. The product has a light lavender fragrance. All in all, very satisfying, and one of the three or four JMO products that I'll continue to buy.

I haven't come across a John Masters product I didn't like! This conditioner works very well with my hair. It leaves it perfectly moisturized and manageable. I like that it is cheaper than the other conditioners in this line. I took one lippy off because my husband hates the smell, but I guess that's what you have to deal with if you want something completely organic!

I love this conditioner. My hair is starting to go gray and has become very dry and sort of wiry. This conditioner has totally softened it and makes it look very nice. I highly recommend it.

I've used all four of John Masters' conditioners and this is my favorite for price, performance and scent. This actually works better than his overpriced Honey & Hibiscus Reconstructor (which I think they reformulated because it seemed runnier and less moisturizing than when I used it 2 years ago). And for $22 for 7oz, this is a better deal than the $28 and only 4oz Reconstructor.
This smells better than the HHR, too, in my opinion. The sweet, herbaceous scent of lavender oil combined with earthy avocado oil is an addictively heady aroma.
FYI: To the reviewers who complain that John Masters shampoos and conditioners don't leave their hair as smooth and silky as they'd like, it's because he doesn't use silicones and chemical softeners (quaterniums). You can't expect the same results. But over time, you'll have a declogged scalp, a fluffier head of hair and zero scalp itchiness.

This conditioner is alright and it is made up of predominantly natural ingredients. The problem is that it is only alright and it costs a lot of money. I've definitely used cheaper conditioners that did a better job of providing moisture, smoothness, and softness to my hair. I used the conditioner after I washed with John Master's Evening Primrose shampoo and it did soften my hair up after the shampoo dried it out. As with all of John Master's products, I felt ripped off after using it.

I purchased this conditioner when I ran out of my Citrus Neroli detangler, as my hair usually needs a little more moisturizing in the winter months. It smells great, and is definitely a richer conditioner than the detangler. I have wavy textured hair, and this definitely helps keep the frizz away. You don't need to use a large amount; my hair is past my shoulders and a quarter size amount is more than enough. I still haven't found a John Masters hair product I don't like. I highly recommend!

i really like this stuff. my hair is super fine and fairly damaged. this smooths it out and the smell is very nice. my hair is super tangled and when i use this conditioner i can easily comb through my hair in the shower.

This stuff barely moisturizes my super curly hair (3B/C), far from intensely. Suave Coconut Conditioner is more softening than this on me. I would say skip this product unless your hair is fine and needs little extra moisture.

I love this product! I wash my hair every other day and I use this intensive conditioner each time. I use a generous amount, rub it in thoroughly, and leave it on around 3-4 minutes. The fragrance is wonderful - reminds me of a slightly powdery lavender, though I wish the scent lasted in my hair. It leaves my hair detangled, soft and full of body - not flat or oily. I don't know what it is, but it definitely makes my hair look good - better than when I don't use it. Love the simple packaging and high-quality ingredients - I hate silicone-packed products and products made with chemicals.
But one of the things I love best about this product line is that John Masters is also an animal lover and rescuer. In my opinion, using these high-quality products (that really work) and knowing that the person who developed this line is a man who respects and cherishes animals is wonderful. Obviously animal-friendly, this is one line I am definitely excited to try more of!
