Decent basic conditioner, one of the better ones available if you're looking for minimalist unscented products for skin sensitivity reasons. Fragrance-free, silicone-free, same pH as skin, and based on standard coconut oil derivatives plus jojoba oil, hydrolysed soy protein, panthenol, and nettle and burdock extracts.
Satisfies my admitedly basic requirements: hair should be detangled and smooth, not dry and frizzy; hair should neither dry out nor grease up at lightening speed; it should have some bounce, and not be limp or weighed down; surrounding skin (especially neck, back, face) shouldn't be irritated. And the stuff should either have a scent that I like and that doesn't make me sneeze, or no scent at all. Don't like the scent/lack? Add essential oils, shake to mix, shake again before each use.
Slightly gel-like cream, easy to dispense and apply and rinse out. I'm currently using it both as a conditioner and as a pre-wash, doing the condition-wash-condition method. I've also mixed in a couple of drops of DIY hair oil: a mix, in varying proportions, of argan, avocado, jojoba, and/or olive oils (current mix on notepad).
Hair here: long (bra-strap length), fine, dense/thick, slightly wavy, normal to dry, untreated (not dyed, textured, etc.; left to air-dry, no other products used). Scalp can be sensitive, as can the rest of my skin, so I tend to favour unscented or minimally-scented products. I spent some quality time testing out unscented conditioners recently, as my eczema returned in patches: major ones on my neck.
Other unscented conditioners that worked plus a couple that worked in the past but not used in a while, as not in shops where I am and they'd cost quite a lot when you add in shipping: [the old] Avalon Organics Grapeseed & Olive (great), John Masters Organics Bare (ditto), Curelle RICHE (great), Curelle TRÈSLITE (decent), Urtekram (nice), Desert Essence (OK), NatureClean (ditto); less good on my hair: Jason, Whole Foods 365, Free & Clear/Cliniderm, Elave (and a few others back in the UK).
Cheap: around CAD 5.00-7.00 for a 350 ml bottle. Good packaging: white translucent plastic with flip-top cap, lovely label. Cruelty-free, recyclable, and free of various things.

I use this product on a rotational basis with a few others meant for people with fragrance sensitivities and its primary moisturizing ingredient is jojoba oil. I would rate this product as passing but nothing to jump up and down about. My biggest issues with this conditioner is it leaves zero shine and your hair no longer looks clean after application. You cannot use this every day as it will build up and make your hair flat. It does take out static and flyaways but so what if your hair is dull and lifeless looking. I tried applying it in several different ways and the result is always the same. As a once in awhile conditioner its ok but thats about all I can say for it.

This conditioner works well if you don't really have dry or damaged hair to begin with. It chock full of herbs that is good for your scalp and hair and is great if you are looking for a basic conditioner. I had to use a lot to get through my hair, but then I realized that its not really necessary.
A good conditioner for those with normal to semi-dry hair or with sensitivities.

I bought this and the matching shampoo because I wanted a shampoo and conditioner with NO fragrance at all. And they do deliver on that. They literally leave no fragrance on your hair. But as a conditioner I thought this was only so-so. It was not nearly moisturizing enough for my dry hair and my hair was still dry/tangly after using it. If your hair is on the drier side, you might want to try Jason's Fragrance-Free conditioner, which is a bit more moisturizing (and also has no fragrance at all).

I think this conditioner works really well with the shampoo. Together it really leaves your hair healthy and balanced. I've never tried using the conditioner without the matching shampoo, but using both yields really good results with your hair. It's worth the extra money for those who are looking for something that has no fragrance (which alone is hard to find anyway).

I did not have a good experience with this conditioner,it caused a waxy buildup on my hair,and my ends became very dry and brittle with absolutely no shine at all,the cetyl alchohol smell was really overwhelming as well.

I buy this one online, since my healthfood store doesn't carry it. I use the Fragrance Free Conditioner for Dry/Damaged hair and it's great!! The price is good too, considering you get a good amount. It leaves my coloured, wavy and normally dry hair soft. Overall, it's a good, normal conditioner. But I tend to need more conditioning in the winter - although I will use this in the warmer weather when my hair isn't as frizzy and dry.

This is a decent conditioner for conditioner washing (see naturallycurly2.com for more info on conditioner washes). It has a minimal amount of conditioning agents, so it doesn't cause any build up. The best thing about this product is it's total lack of any kind of fragrance--not even masking scents and essential oils.
Update- I will not repurchase because my local healthfood store no longer carries it.

This is a good conditioner at a reasonable price.

This conditioner is just okay. If you use a shampoo that rinses smooth, then it is okay to use. This is nothing heavy duty though. It is very inexpensive, which is a plus.
