What a disappointment. I have dry, frizzy, wavy hair that is prone to breakage. This line did not tame my frizz. In fact, it did nothing at all. I could not tell the difference from when I used Self Absorbed and when I used the random drugstore products lying around. I am now satisfied with Redken's Extreme line. I will not be purchasing Self Absorbed again as it was a waste of money the first go-around.

If you want a conditioner that straightens your hair, look elsewhere, but if you want a conditioner that keeps the frizz down without affecting any natural curl, I would definitely recommend giving this a try. I have such dry, coarse, wavy, hair that most of the time I only wash it every three or four days. Over the years, I've probably tried just about every conditioner and mask, and leave in treatment there is from very expensive "salon" brands to cheap drugstore ones. I keep coming back to "Self-Absorbed" for several reasons. First, so long as I leave it in for the recommended 3-5 minutes (and then rinse out), it smooths the fly-aways and frizzies without weighing my hair down or leaving build up. Second, unlike a lot of conditioners that seem to "straighten" my curly hair, this one leaves the natural wave alone. Third, while I usually avoid scented hair products, (and I especially avoid floral-scented anything because it turns me into a bee-magnet!), my husband really likes the scent of this one and it is NOT a floral scent at all. I didn't give it 5 stars not because of the product, but because of the pump. The product is quite thick (which is a good thing), but the pump is not up to the task of dispensing anything that thick and gets clogged easily. It comes in various sizes some of which have pumps and some of which don't. For sure, don't buy it for the pump!
I also discovered (by accident when I was at a hotel that had a clogged shower drain!) that if you mix it with some warm water and soak your feet in it for 5 minures or so and then rinse, it makes a great skin conditioner for rough, dry feet.

This conditioner was very disappointing, particularly given the price. I have pretty "normal" hair (not dry or oily, a bit wavy) and most conditioners I've tried (from cheap to expensive) work perfectly fine in my hair. However, this conditioner did almost nothing for me. After washing it out, my hair feels just marginally more moisturized and soft than it did before applying it. Also, it doesn't do a very good job detangling my hair. I don't think my hair would feel much different if I skipped this product completely. Pantene Pro-V conditioner does a much better job at a fraction of the price.
This product also has a strong scent. I'm not really sure what to compare it to. To me, it's a really artificial scent, but not a bad smell. It's just really strong.
I like that this product comes with a pump, but the pump is really cheap (so far, it has been working perfectly well though). For the price, it would have been nice to get slightly better packaging, especially since the larger sizes of Pantene Pro-V come with a much sturdier pump and still costs a lot less.
Overall: Pass. Very disappointing product, doesn't really do any of the things you would expect a conditioner to do.
Value: Terrible, but mostly because I found the product to be disappointing.

Not sure what's up with all the negative reviews, but I really like this product. I have fine hair and this was one of my go-to conditioners last winter when I was desperate to replenish moisture to my hair. I can see someone with thicker, coarser hair liking this too. I bought this on a whim. That was after looking at the ingredients first, of course - I'm picky about my conditioners and careful about not buying things with Dimethicone as a top ingredient, I don't like how it makes my hair feel or the quick build up I have to deal with from it. Like another reviewer, when I use this I leave it in for several minutes. It makes my hair feel smooth. The smell is delicious too, it smells like an orange popsicle, mmmm. Also, it seemed to me this had a "plumping" effect. I didn't use this much at all during the spring or summer because I don't need heavily moisturizing properties during those months, but for me it's definitely great for the dry winter air or just anytime my hair feels extra dry or damaged (if I regularly heat styled my hair, I would surely use it a lot more).

I generally love bed head products and have dry hair so I thought I'd give this stuff a shot. At first it left my hair really soft and moisturized but after about a week of using it my hair was getting super dry and stringy. I didn't know what was going on! I finally switched back to my usually stuff and it was instantly back to normal. My hair stylist said they recalled it recently so I don't know if I got one from a bad batch but I definitely won't try it again either way. I've never had anything dry my hair out like that before!

Bought it recently for the orangey smell.. wakes me up in the morning. Ive always loved [healthy sexy hair s : pumpkin sh/cond as well as the chocolate] :D The bottle is pretty small compared to most cond, has a nice pump. It goes on easy but I have thick long hair so I let it sit for a few mins then comb it through and wait..sometimes ill use other non scented cond with it. Makes my hair shiny, soft and smelling yummy.

just as bad as the shampoo.

I liked this conditioner but there just wasn't anything about it that wowed me. It made my hair shiny and soft and the packaging was great I loved the pump bottle. I'm not a fan of citrus scents so that turned me off a little bit but overall this wasn't that bad.

I have been using this conditioner for about two weeks. I love the scent of this conditioner! It's very citrus-like and uplifting. I also like that the bottle I bought has a pump on it. The conditioner is not thick at all, which may be a disappointment for some, but I actually like the consistency of this one. I don't feel like it clings to my hair when I get out of the shower. I can tell a difference when I style my hair. It seems the TIGI Self Absorbed Conditioner makes my hair soft, but the product does not weigh my hair down at all. I have not yet tried the shampoo, and I probably would not have tried the conditioner had it not been on sale! However, I am pleased with this conditioner and I look forward to trying other TIGI products.

Smells amazing which is what made me try it but it left my hair like cotton. So not healthy

I started using this product 3 months ago, together with Tigi Moisture Maniac Shampoo, my hair has always been very dry, but this conditioner keeps it hydrated and shiny.
Unfortunately, this product needs to be applied in a rather large amount to cover all my hair, there is no lather or foam so dividing the amount into the rest of my hair is quite difficult. Tha is why im only giving this conditioner 3 stars, as the bottle of 250ml is very quickly used, and is not cheap.
as with tigis other shampoos and conditioner, the bottle has a very easy to use dispenser top.

My hair: Fine, slightly dry, medium length. I've been using this along with the Self Absorbed shampoo, and I'm not sure if it's the conditioner itself or the shampoo that doesn't clean well enough, but I find that I have to wash my hair every day now. I have to use a LOT of conditioner to avoid tangles.
Pros: Great smell and packaging (I bought the 750 ml bottle with pump).

Good stuff, not a miracle worker or anything..does it's job. I have long fine hair but tons of it. ..this works fine for me. Smells good, not too light, not too thick. It doesn't leave my hair silky soft when I rinse it out, but it doesn't leave it rough either..my hair feels moisturized when it's dry. .. Just a reg conditioner. I got the giant Costco bottle with a pump. I've had it for 4 months and it's not quite half done yet.

Smells good, but i can smeel alcohol in the product, and it makes my hair dry... bought it like 2 years ago and it really worked for me.. but this time just sucked... left hair dry and frizzy... doesnt really moist the hair...

I bought this because this was supposedly full of vitamins and it would be good for hair that had been chemically damaged.
I tried this for over a month, but this really sucks. I have dry hair of my own and this conditioner just makes it drier! I can't believe that they would promote this for chemically treated hair! True, it did give shine, but that's not all I'm expecting from a pricy conditioner.
I'm now using it as shaving cream for my legs, I can't just throw this away.
I'm using the tigi superstar combo and that does work! I wish I had known about it earlier and hadn't bought this product.

I don't see why so many people don't like this product, I happen to love it! It was pricey, so I use it very sparingly so I can make it last longer. I find that the longer you leave it in your hair the softer it makes your hair feel. There definitely is a difference between leaving it in for 30 seconds, compared to a few minutes. To leave it on longer I would wash my hair and then put the conditioner on, and then move on to washing my body so I could allow it to settle in and really get that deep conditioning. I would use this as a once or twice a week deep conditioner. The smell is amazing, and the color is pretty cool - I love orange! For the price I definitely think that it should be a little bigger!

I like this conditioner. It's good but hardly great. The consistency is on par with most other conditioners out there. It isn't as thick as I would like it to be, but it contains so many vitamins which are said to be good for the hair. I used to use it as my regular conditioner and was only getting so-so results. So I started using it pre-shampoo after coating my strands with extra-virgin olive oil. It's kind of a pre-shampoo treatment I picked up from somewhere and it works wonders that way. I have dry hair and live in NYC where it's that time of year again and I know I'm in for cold, dry winter weather. So my hair needs all the nourishment it can get. I just saturate my hair with the olive oil, then apply this on top and read Vogue or do chores for an hour. Then I wash and condition with my preferred conditioner in the shower and my hair has never looked better. On it's own if you were just to wash and condition with this, I doubt it would be doing much for your hair. It didn't do much for mine. As far as the smell goes, it is undeniably fruity. I don't abhor it, but it's nothing I'd rave about. Quite synthetic smelling. Atleast it doesn't leave my hair smelling like that. Price wise, I think it's medium ranged. Based on the quality of the product, TiGi should price it lower. When I finish my bottle, I likely won't repurchase. I'd rather move on.

I'd been using Redken All Soft conditioner but had a hard time finding it when I ran out and bought this product. I feel for the price it is not good at all. It smells nice but my hair feels worse after using it. I have very straight hair and this made my hair feel brittle and knotty post-shower. (been using it over a month now--will make the best of it since it was pricey!) It just feels cheap as one runs it through the hair. I think a moisturizing conditioner should be a little thicker. I can use a lot less of the Redken All Soft to work through my mid-back length hair but I have to use at least 8 pumps of the Bed Head to even feel like I've saturated the hair. Will not purchase again.

*When your hair seems dead even after moisturizing and using protein, try this.
I decided to hand over $17 to get this stuff, it looked promising.
In the shower, I lathered 2 pumps of the stuff into clean hair. it on for 3-4 mins and rinsed.
After blow-drying gently, my hair was so soft and looked so healthy. It was SHINY, which my hair hadn't been for years. It worked really well. I guess my hair was just in need of nourishment--Vitamins, rather than moisture or "reconstructing protein." I was going insane and kept cutting off my "dead ends" until I found this. Best stuff ever! I love it so much.
