My hair dresser was about to cut my hair off because it was so dry and dead on the ends after being bleached but I begged her not to and picked up this stuff on a whim, not expecting anything dramatic and what I got was a miracle! After one use this brought my hair to life! My hair dresser was amazed when I back a few weeks later. This mask is also BOMB! I'll never spend $$$ on a hair product again.

Nothing to write home about... I have died, fried, wavy, frizzy hair and A LOT of it. After reading the reviews I was expecting a miracle. This is basically your generic run of the mill cheap conditioner with a bit (not a lot) of "cones" - in par with Pantene or Dove marketed towards "normal" hair types. I feel it would work on average to somewhat processed hair (minimal highlights or a semi perm dye) - but for not for damaged hair as advertised. My hair is on it's 2nd day and feels dry lacks shine and even looks a bit faded (I dye my hair red). Thus far my drugstore fav is still Suave Keratin Infusion conditioner... gives my hair good slip, hydrates and works well with heat for $3 a bottle. Oh Suave - I should of never betrayed you!!!

I'm on my second bottle of this conditioner. It is the first product in a long time that stopped my hair from shedding! My hair is waist long very thick, coarse, and unruly. This is the first conditioner that one, stopped the shedding and it was becoming a serious issue where I was starting to worry. Second, my hair has a ton of colour damage from keeping it so light blonde and this product moisturizes so well! It also makes my waves look smooth and like an actual hairstyle. Third it smells so good I really like the scent. So much so I sniff my hair and it's also really shiny and just feels healthy. It just makes my hair feel and look so much better. To keep this conditioner working I'll use a clarifying shampoo once and a while and I still get great results and most important no shedding! Love. Recommended!

This review is for the shampoo.Loved how it moisturized and made my hair soft and shiny.The smell is pretty good too.My hair isn't really damaged,just somewhat dry.I used with the Eraser Balm in this line for conditioner. My hair felt light and very soft.I'd reccomend these products.

This conditioner is very good! I have tried a lot of conditioners and honestly I am not sold on the concept that high end is better. This conditioner proves that this is not the case! This product smells nice. It is fruity. It leaves my hair tangle free and soft. It's just as good as any 20$ product but it is about 5$! I mean come on! There is no reason not to buy this and like it!!

I bought this because I was looking to clarify my hair and condition it thoroughly before touching up my hair color, mostly the roots, and pull color over the rest of my waist-length hair. I used a sodium laureth-based shampoo that I have never had problems using before. I only use such shampoos when clarifying before conditioning and color work, so if I have product buildup it will not affect my color.

That being said, this product did not seem to have any ingredients I have not used in the past. I also have liked the Ever line from L'Oreal, and use it in my regular rotation for color-treated hair care. It smells great, and does not break up into globs when you scoop it from the jar. However, when I rinsed L'Oreal Advanced Total Repair 5 out of my hair, after the full 2 minutes suggested on the label, my hair felt like straw -- I couldn't even get my fingers through it. I have fine hair,which I condition and care for carefully, and it began breaking, during the most delicate of efforts to untangle it.

I wound up pouring a teaspoon of Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine (which I love!) into my hand and working that carefully into my wet hair, before i could finger comb it, then finish with a wide toothed comb, gently, from the bottom.

I used my root touch-up kit with no problems, finished with the conditioner that comes with my hair color product's full application kit, and had no further problems, other than having lost significant hair to breakage after using what was supposed to be a deep conditioning hair mask. Very disappointing! Last time I buy conditioner at the supermarket, regardless of the brand!

My hair is elbow length, fine yet dense on the scalp, and oily on the scalp but a little drier toward the ends. I bought the liter size with the pump of this from walmart and it is a very high quality conditioner for the price. Makes my hair very smooth and manageable.

I really like this conditioner - it leaves my hair soft and unlike other conditioners I've used before - it's shiny. My hair is dry, frizzy, and curly/wavy. Unfortunately, this didn't help with frizz, but nevertheless, my hair looked healthier. For frizz I discovered Garnier's Argan oil serum - it really helps and lasts for a long time as you need only a bit.

This is the first product in L'Oreal's new "Advanced Haircare" line that I've tried. I like a conditioner that has a silicone near the top of the ingredient list (this one has amodimethicone as the 3rd ingredient) because I have hair that gets knotted and tangled very easily, and I need something with a lot of slip, which this has. I have long, thick, coarse, curly, caucasian hair and I wet-comb the conditioner thru in the shower. I had no problems whatsoever getting the comb through with this conditioner, even after going 2 or 3 days without washing.

The scent is a pleasant/non-descript floral and I like that the cap is on the bottom for easy dispensing.

After years of trying every haircare product known to humanity, I've decided that it's not worth spending more than $4 on any regular-sized conditioner, and it's easy to stay under that price limit with this conditioner, especially when on sale and/or with a coupon.

This seems to be a well-formulated conditioner, which is not only inexpensive, but it leaves my hair feeling EXTREMELY silky, has great slip and is highly recommended. *****

EDIT: I've since tried a couple other conditioners in the line, (Triple Resist and TotalRepair-Extreme, and I think I still prefer this one). :-)
