I used to buy this in liters a few years ago when I got my hair colored in an Aveda salon but stopped using it when I got into the much more expensive Kerastase line. I had a GC to a local Aveda salon so I decided to purchase this since I used to like it so much. The smell is amazing, I forgot how much I loved it. It gives hair great slip without feeling heavy or weighing hair down. I had no tangles when I rinsed which is huge for me, I have fine blonde hair that tangles easily. I used it with the matching shampoo and air dried with Phomollient. Great end result, beachy waves with no crunch or frizz

I was recommended this shampoo as I was looking for something without silicones and Aveda was mentioned.
My hair is pretty straight forward and only needed shampoo. Most shampoos were too heavy, so I started with Shampure.
After a while my hair looked dry and I added the conditioner. When my dry hair did not feel better I switched to Color Conserve as the SA recommended it as more moisturizing and less heaving as their other products.
As my hair was the same dry mess a few weeks later I did some reasearch and behold, there is quite a bit of silicone in it and that was drying out my hair.
When I asked the SA about it she told me that silicones come from sand and of course that could not be the reason for my dry hair, it was all natural. Really?
Use this only if you want overpriced shampoo/conditioner that just smell organic. I am back to nursing my hair back to pre-Avene health.

I am always looking for new hair products to try because I put my hair through a lot with the blow dryer and highlights and I want it to stay looking healthy. I used to ALWAYS use Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner because it did work great, until my fab hairstylist told me about Shielo Color Protect Conditioner. Shielo's Color Protect Conditioner which is not only a great conditioner for my hair, but really works at preserving my hair color. I add highlights to my hair a couple times a year just to keep a fresh look and make my hair look alive, but I hate when the color starts to fade. My hairstylist always loved Shielo, so when I tried this product I was pleasantly surprised at how great it worked and is now my go to conditioner. I used this conditioner after getting highlights and it really seemed to seal in my color and keep it looking vibrant longer. The conditioner seems to wake up my color when I use it and make it shine. I love that the lather is rich and creamy, but it doesn't make my hair feel heavy or greasy and rinses out easily. It adds a lot of softness and healthiness to my hair and smells great. This is a great conditioner to soften your hair and make your color shine.

Color Conserve is more moisturizing than Shampure, but less moisturizing than Dry Remedy. It did a great job of providing light conditioning and didn't weigh my hair down. After using it for awhile I realized it was irritating my scalp.

This shampoo made my hair so dry and frizzy. The only good thing about it is the smell. Otherwise it's too expensive. Don't buy it.

Love this product!
When used with the shampoo, my hair feels so silky smooth.
Also protects my color so well-LOVE the smell as well :)

Not HG, but I have rebought it numerous times. It does the job of a daily conditioner i.e. doesn't weigh down my fine hair with oily roots. However, I wish it was a tad bit more moisturzing, especially since it's supposed to be for color-treated hair. TBH I really only continually use it because the scent "goes" with my HG Blue Malva Shampoo (I was told not to use the Blue Malva conditioner daily). I definitely think Frederic Fekkai Technician is way better, but also more expensive.

This was recommended by the stylist after she put gloss on my hair. It smells good. However, I do not recommend this conditioner (nor the shampoo): I have thick, wavy hair. After using this about 6 weeks - I wash my hair only twice a week - I realized how dry/frizzy my hair has become. The color looks ok, my hair is still shiny, I just don't like the way it feels/looks. Thankfully I only purchased the trial size and I am almost out. Will not repurchase.

I love this conditioner. I have tried so many different ones in the past and most leave me with tons of build-up, but not this one. It rinses out easily and doesn't give me lots of tangles to comb out. I love the scent as well. It's not cheap, but the results are worth it!

I just went to my first Aveda salon to have a hair correction completed and my colorist highly recommended this line of products to keep my new colour in great condition and prevent further future damage.
- fantastic Aveda scent
- has conserved and kept my colour intact with no fading after 4 weeks of use
- quite runny in consistency
-not very moisturizing as my hair requires and I do have to use a leave in conditioner afterwards
- quite expensive considering the mls to dollars ratio
Will finish the bottle due to the high price I paid, but not repurchase in the future.

I got a free 10mL sample tube from a rep at the Aveda store and gave it a shot. No dice. It is not a good conditioner (and not worthy of "treatment" status as the rep tried to tell me). It is heavily (and pleasantly) scented with essential oils - as most Aveda products are.
The conditioner is thin and runny - more like a daily weight or light weight and did almost mothing to hydrate my slightly dry, fine, color treated, 30-something locks.
Too bad. I'm sticking with Kerastase and Phyto.

I have contined to repurchase this over the years with the Color Conserve Shampoo, even though it's not the best conditioner in the world. I love the scent and knowing that it is supposed to prolong my highlights, whether it really does or not, I'm still on the fence about that. I always use Paul Mitchell's Leave in conditioner with it since my hair is so dry. So why should I even bother with repurchasing again?

This is one of the worst conditioners I have ever tried. I absolutely love the Color Conserve shampoo but this undo's everything that the shampoo does. For instance, once I'm done rinsing the shampoo my hair actually feels very hydrated so you'd think the conditioner would make the hair even more softer. But NO, it doesn't. It actually made my hair hard and with tons of knots too. I still have like 80% of the 33 oz left (after like 9 months) because its kind of painful to use. I only use it as a quick rinse before adding a deep conditioner. The only positive thing I could say about this is that the scent is very pleasant. But needless to say this did not work for my hair and won't be buying again.

The scent is terrific, like all AVEDA products, but left my scalp feeling itchy. Now in the garbage along with the Color Conserve Shampoo; no more AVEDA for me.

Between the Color Conserve shampoo and this conditioner, my hair was dried out and flat. This isn't completely awful, but I'm willing to pitch the rest of the tube and move onto something else.

I think the biggest reason I bought this was because I love the earthy, natural smell of Aveda products. Speaking however, entirely from a practical stand point, I don't think this is a great conditioner for most people who color their hair. My hair is colored and I usually blow dry it on week days so I need a conditioner that moisturizes well. To that end, this product is only fair. If I use this on days I blow dry I end up having somewhat frizzy, dry hair. On the non-blow dry days this is ok, but one could definitely find something better for the money. Essential this is an expensive conditioner that smells amazing, but doesn't moisturize or hold color better than any drug store conditioner.

Although this is not my ideal conditioner, I find it good for regular conditioning. Like Colour Conserve shampoo, it does not seem intended for intense conditioning, or improving dry hair per se - though it does do a great job in preserving the life of my semi-permanent colour. The smell is very herbal, with a hint of lavender - it doesn't have the cheap, fruity smell of lower-end conditioners. Its texture is creamy, but not overly rich or greasy. As for mosturizing and conditioning, it does a fairly good job, keeping my hair smooth and silky, though occasionally I need to use a deep conditioning treatment to restore softness and moisture.
To put things in perspective, my hair is long, naturally fine and wavy. I also use heat styling products daily, and blow dry after every shower. So, my hair does go through a lot of abuse, and I took that into consideration when evaluating colour conserves performance. The fact that my hair retains its conditiong, in spite of my styling routine, speaks volumes about the quality of this product. It would be nice, however, if Aveda launched a mosturizing version.

I thought it wasnt conditioning enough for my hair. I had to use a lot to get it moisturizing enough and so I ran out of it quickly. The smell is typically AVEDA : musky, earthy, natural. So if you don't like that, you probably won't like much that AVEDA makes.
I really wanted to like it, but I think I will try another product

I wanted to try this conditioner after reading raves in one of my many beauty mags. First off, the fragrance, herbal, medicinal, spicy, musky, takes some getting used to, and not sure I want my hair smelling like such. Generally, I like clean, light, somewhat fruity fragrances, but this herbal-scent does not bother me as much as heavily-flowered fragrance like Kerastase and L'Oreal d/s lines. Next, the performance, overall a generally, good conditioner for my hilited, curly/wavy, frizzy, dry hair, but not fantastic, which is what I am looking for. My hair still feels rough after using this and I don't notice any benefit for my hilites. I like Davines, Philosophy Sheer Splendor, Alterna conditioners.

Another great conditioner from Aveda!
I use it on my ends and it does not make them stringy and flat like many conditioners do to my fine hair. It seems to keep my colour nice an shiny longer than without it as well.
