Love the smell!!! and my hair is so soft , feels awesome, its nice and light for my fine hair, pricy, I got the gift pack, shampoo, hairspray and conditioner for $40 , on sale, regular was pretty hefty, but worth it now that I tried it. Will be sticking with this one.

It was ok. I have a tough combo of fine and curly hair. Apparently, I have issues with some proteins, moisturizing conditioners tend to be too heavy, can't touch volumizing ones, they dry me out...what a mess. So far the only conditioner I can commit to is Pureology Hydrate. This one left me with flat fuzzy curls and almost crunchy. I don't want to say it is horrible...it is average...but this is what average conditioners do to me. It is silicone free for those that care. I think I need some silicones though. Just too fuzzy, undefined of curls with this. The coconut smell is nice but could get annoying after a while. My hair does feel softer with this than the Joico Moisture Recovery, but I think it looked shinier with the Moisture Recovery. Either way, going back to Pureology Hydrate.

I love Kenra Moisture Conditioner, it's a hair saver. It is true, Do Not Leave on too long, I follow instructions on this one, for a co wash I stick with Aubrey Honeysuckle. KENRA IS MY OLD SCHOOL LOVE, we go way back.....

I got this on sale. I would've never spent $30 to try it. I'm so glad I was able to try this conditioner. I've finally found my HG moisturizing conditioner. My hair is relaxed and color treated so I have to stay on top of it or it will dry out. Before I was using less expensive conditioners and having to mix them with oils and leaving it in my hair for hours at a time. With Kenra I leave on my hair about 5 mins while I'm in the shower and my hair is nice and soft when I rinse it out. I am protein sensitive so I only use this conditioner when I haven't used anything else with protein in it.

This conditioner is the worst I have ever used. I like to switch up my routine to keep my hair healthy and happy so I thought I would give this one a try. I thought it was a little runnier than I like but it smelled nice and I had heard good things.
This shampoo and conditioner changed my hair. I have curly hair that I straighten about every three days or so, and in the month I was using it about two inches of hair broke off, it took me about that long to realize that it was this product that was making it happen. I was livid to say the least.
After just a week of switching back to Kpak my hair already felt better and was on the mend. I have never been so upset in my life.
I am now doing all the repair I can and mending it back to health NEVER buy this product it ruined my hair and took my length.

Best dang thing I've ever used on my hair. Period. Pricey, but worth every penny, and extremely concentrated, so I really can use a smaller amount, this coming from a girl who usually needs handfuls of conditioner to even come close to detangling my mane. This stuff makes my hair soft, shiny and manageable. No small feat considering I have damaged, extremely curly, very fine textured, thick hair. Pretty much impossible hair to deal with...but Kenra has changed all that. I don't know if I can ever use another conditioner again. I buy the liter bottles to make the cost more realistic.

This is a HG desert island beauty product for me. No conditioner leaves my afro hair as elastic, moisturized, and well behaved as this. This condish has allowed me to regrow my hair while minimizing breakage and splits. It is expensive, but the ingredients are unique enough to justify the cost if you buy in bulk. I have yet to find an equivalent at the drugstore or boutique levels.
EDIT: I should also add that I am not paid to advertise for Kenra, have been using Kenra and Elucence conditioners for several years, and am extremely particular about the ingredients I use. I'm not cone averse and must understand the role of an ingredient in a formulation before I use it. Also please note that I am African American with fine type 4 hair. YMMV.

UPDATE/ 1/12/12 this is my New HG conditioner again i realized my hair is allergic to glycerin (WHICH HAS BEEN IN ALL MY HAIR PRODUCTS -____-) i could NEVER figure out why my virgin 3a 3b hair was soooooooooooooo dry and ive never really had dry hair and i dont use silicones on my hair either. so then i did a strand test on my hair with pure glycerin and my hair got sooo dry and frizzyy. i am completly baffled at how this could ever happen because glycerin is in my moisturizer and it doesnt afect my skin at all. on to the reveiw this is an outstanding conditioner for co washing for conditioning and i add jojoba oil to it for a deeep treatment. i wish i would have found out sooner

Every time I try to use a different conditioner, I am reminded that nothing can compare to Kenra. This is the only conditioner that works for my hair. I feel that it truly conditioners my hair without leaving product buildup.

On the fence on this. Used this with Kenra Color Maintenance shampoo and my head itched like crazy. Used this with another shampoo and less itchiness. My hair is soft, shiny and bouncy afterwards, BUT I have to make sure I don't get it on the roots or else my hair feels heavy-only use on ends. I have Asian, straight, fine, but lots of it, colored hair. May or may not keep.

Looooove this conditioner. My hair is dry and damaged, especially at the ends and Kenra's moisturizing conditioner works absolute wonders for me. My hair as never been so smooth and healthy looking. I could probably still use a trim because its not going to repair the damage I've already accumulated but it does help prevent my condition from worsening. The absolute best I've ever used. I'd recommend it to any one and everyone. c: It smells wonderful too.

My hair is reallllyyyyy dry at the ends, so I've been looking for a conditioner that moisturizes, strenthens, softens, and generally keeps the hair healthy. This conditioner delivers. It has a good thick consistency I like, good coconut scent, and delivers like a daily deep conditioner. I don't notice any residue or build up. After using this conditioner my hair feel the softest I think iv ever felt it. Definitely a HG product I will be sticking with for a while. I only wish more came in the bottle or it was cheaper..

5 Lippies to the 5th power. I have been using this product consistently, at least weekly if not daily, for over 3 years now with excellent results. I absolutely love that it does just what it says - moisturizes, without protein buildup or silicones. As another reviewer said, perfect for fellow Curlies! It is safe for frequent use for my dense slightly wavy hair. I can say that this conditioner workstried and true, regardless of anything else I may change in my regimen.
Bonus: No harsh proteins. Contains Wheat Protein, which is repairs damaged hair through covalent bonding. It builds body, reduces porosity, and improves shine, luster and smoothness. It is an extremely pure protein produced from natural wheat gluten. It consists of the two subunits gliadin and glutenin, which are capable of repairing damaged hair through covalent linkage. Wheat Protein conditions hair with its moisture retention and film forming properties, which will greatly improve the body, shine, and smoothness of hair.
I have used this successfully for co-washes (lathers very easily!), daily conditioner (if you have curl or texture, may be too heavy for fine straight hair), deep conditioning treatments w/ and w/o heat, and even overnight conditioning. This conditioner is very thick and emollient coming out, but melts into hair. No cones, no buildup, just soft, detangled, well moisturized hair and ends that have been saved from trims! I currently have shoulder - arm pit length hair, and with weekly washes I will probably use 1 liter every 6 months. You can stock up @ Trade Secret during their liter sales, and if you get two for $30, it averages out to $2.50 a month for the entire year at that rate.
A cheaper imitation version of it is Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration - but that causes build up over time with the cones and I don't think its quite as emollient. However - Kenra's MC and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose have beat many other moisturizing brands I've tried and remain my top two moisturizing condtioners. And I've tried a LOT of great ones!! I.Value is good since other products can cost the same for half the price, and even deep conditioning treatments at my old stylist used to be $15 bucks for 15 min. :)
UPDATE 3/2013: Still in rotation. I still love this conditioner, and there is no change from my original review. However, I can add one more moisture only conditioner that is on par with the quality of Kenra and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose: Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrating Conditioning Balm is another alternative that may work well for those that like this type of moisture. Sally's beauty sells a perfect knockoff under the GVP name brand for $5 a bottle, or you can get the Matrix original version for $25. Happy hair!

My HG conditioner! I am biracial and have thick 3c hair so I have tried many, many conditioners. Kenra MC is the best conditoner I've ever used. It took some trial and error but I figured out that my hair is protein sensitive to the harder proteins (keratin/collagen) and I cannot use any protein leave-ins. However, my hair absolutely loves wheat proteins! Kenra MC and Elucence MB are my top 2 conditioners and I will never be without them. Kenra MC is affordable when Trade Secret or JCPenneys is having a liter sale.

This product is essential for fellow curly girls. It is silicone free so it dosen't leave your hair feeling like silk, but it keeps my hair healthy.

This is okay.I have yet not used it for a very long time but i was looking for a nice moisturizing conditioner and came across this so i will give it a try.

This is one of the better salon products I have used. Kenra is a great line and I have yet to be disappointed in any of their hair care products I have purchased. The Moisturizing conditioner is great for hair that has been color treated, damaged by styling tools (blowdryer, straigntener, hot rollers, curling iron, etc,) or normally dry. It may be a bit heavy for fine hair that is already fairly healthy as it has a pretty thick consistency . I did use this product at a time when my hair was pretty dry and damaged from constant coloring and styling. I used it in conjunction with a few other products and I was very pleased with how well it worked.I am currently using a new L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner (Vivre Pro Hydra gloss) and will be writing a review about it shortly. The only con I will have to say about this product is that it is fairly expensive. The smaller size bottle wouldn't last me very long and the bigger bottle is more than I care to spend on a shampoo or conditioner. Hope this helped!

Currently using a sample tube but am not wowed by this conditioner. I have fine hair that fortunately is pretty healthy/shiny, but I do heat style so the ends are a bit drier than the rest of my hair. I didn't notice that big of a difference with this conditioner, even though it's supposed to be moisturizing. However, I will say that it did not break me out, which is a definite plus, as other moisturizing conditioners I've used in the past have given me below the neck breakouts (yuck). Ultimately though, I think there are other more affordable conditioners that do the job better, so I won't be purchasing this. The coconut scent is nice though.

My mom and I both have used this off and on for several years with the matching Moisturizing shampoo. I decided to revisit it when I saw Trade Secret had liters 2 for $30. My only complaint is that I wish the liters came with pumps on them like Bumble and Bumble liters do. Anyway, this is a great conditioner that's not too heavy nor too light. It detangles really well but doesn't leave build-up. To me it's almost like lighter version of the original Nexxus Humectress, even the scent. My hair is 2AB, fine/ highlighted and fuzzy. This stuff moisturizes just enough to leave my hair feeling silky and light. Not HG, but a good conditioner.
