As someone who had long, long since given up the hope of ever having smooth hair, this came as a revelation. I was just so upset when I caught a glimpse of myself with a halo of Brillo while shopping, I decided to splurge. One more try, I told myself...but you know it won't really help. I don't particularly like the smell, and the price (about $11) meant I didn't plan to slather it on.
My hair has always been thick, coarse and prone to frizz for at least the first day after washing. Products don't really affect it. At first I just used this as a second conditioner, lightly after detangling. It made a slight difference. Then one day I ran out and it was all I had. My hair was like glass, and the remarkable thing is that even after air drying, the cuticle remained smooth. Not ironed or blown-dry shiny, which is (heresy!) a look I don't like anyway, but my own healthy natural waves -- like the third day but clean.
I've been stung too many times trying luxury brands that promised everything and did virtually nothing. This works. The fragrance goes dissipates quickly. I like natural, and cruelty-free is a big plus to me. Wish soap.com carried this particular version.

This is my favorite conditioner of the Aubrey Organics line. I use Herbatint natural hair coloring, which tends to leave my hair a bit dry. This conditioner just glides through like silk, or like a silicone conditioner -- without the silicone! It also deep conditions the hair shafts and leaves my hair silky and manageable.
A problem I've had with other hair product is that after my hair was dry and I went about the day, the ends of my hair would frizz again and get coarse looking. With this conditioner, I have no more frizz, my hair looks shiny all the time and smooth, and it's manageable. Another perk from using this conditioner is that I don't need to use other hair products in my hair. This is enough -- it keeps my hair conditioned and shiny all day long. And I have gotten more compliments on my hair since I started using this product.
The smell is heavenly and arboreal, and not too strong. The scent does not linger in my hair after it dries.
I don't think this would be a good conditioner for anyone with fine, thin hair. This is a great condition for those with thick, dry, coarse hair. And if your color treatment has dried your hair, you'll benefit from this. This can also be used as a leave-in conditioner before shampooing. Well worth the $8 I spent for this online -- a little goes a long way!

I really wanted to like this one because I drive a Subaru and my other liberal car is a limousine. The packaging alone takes me back to my mom's 80s retro-hippie-yuppie days at the Nature Mart. I realized looking at the label that I have no idea what camellias smell like, which may have contributed to my surprise as to the fairly herbal woodsy scent that came out of the bottle. I wasn't enamored with the scent (I said limousine-liberal, not actual hippie), and would prefer something a little more floral-clean, but it wasn't particularly a problem. The real problem was that it made my hair flat and crunchy-dry somehow, despite the fact that the product is as thick as Crisco. And if I went a day without washing, my second-day hair looked like I dunked it in actual Crisco.
I do have baby-fine strands and a lot of them, which means that my hair looks thick, but it's not actually thick, if you know what I mean. So perhaps this conditioner was a little too heavy for my wimpy locks. The silver lining is, I gave it a fair shake for about 10 days and then my local Whole Foods took it back with a receipt. Yours will probably as well if the conditioner doesn't work out for you either. And if it does, well, hippie, rock on.

Not bad. One of their better conditioners.

It's an okay product. It smells a little bad -- like you put on "icy hot" pad on your hair. But what it does do is to make your hair look like you haven't washed it in a while. Ever notice that when you forget to wash your hair one day, your hair actually looks better? I read somewhere that hair models deliberately do not wash their hair for days right before photo shoots.. Completely boggles my mind but I think it's somewhat true. Anyway, this conditioner gives you that dirty hair look without actually having to suffer through not washing your hair.. So I think it's worth a try -- but probably would not repurchase..

This was the first Aubrey Organics product (and also the first cone-free hair product) that i ever purchased. It's a good conditioner, but very heavy. I made the mistake of buying it without carefully reading the label. This is a conditioner for coarse, unruly hair, while my hair is fine and undamaged, so the fact that it left my head dripping with oil is not the fault of the product itself, but my own stupidity. I'm a big fan of the AO Honeysuckle Rose conditioner though (for dry and brittle hair - mine is neither dry or brittle) and get excellent results with it, but I use it only a few times a month.
I'm giving the White Camellia Conditioner 5 lippies because I've seen how it works when used properly. I ended up giving my bottle to a friend with very damaged, bleached hair. She used it for deep conditioning following the Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment and it was like magic. She continued to buy this conditioner until she grew out the bleach and eventually chopped the damage.
I guess I'm a major freak as I love the smell of this product, and it looks like there aren't too many of us ;)

This is the best conditioner for my coarse, thick, wavy hair. I've been searching high and low for a conditioner that didn't offend my bf's sense of smell, but worked well for my frizzy, very dry hair.
First, let me say I've tried all the popular brands, like L'oreal, Neutrogena triple moisture mask, Dove, and Suave Coconut conditioner. Nothing worked, even after drenching my hair with all of the above conditioners. I even tried co-washing, but that just left me with dandruff and really greasy hair.
I tried coconut oil for awhile, but I found it too difficult to find the right balance, leaving my hair either oily or frizzy. I finally decided to try an organic conditioner because it contains only natural scents, which doesn't seem to bother my bf. The scent isn't the prettiest. I would describe it as herbal and woodsy.
I tried Aubrey Jojoba & Aloe Desert Herb Revitalizing Conditioner for dry, damaged hair first, but didn't find it as moisturizing as White Camellia Conditioner for dry, coarse, unruly hair. The White Camellia conditioner only requires a few dabs and my hair is finally frizz free!
I never thought an organic conditioner could be this good. For someone who tried everything under the sun to control my frizzy hair, I am finally happy and the search is over!

Way too heavy for my hair. I was a greasy messy. I don't have dry or course hair. I have an oily scalp and normal ends that only have a bit of dryness. I thought using just a little would be ok but even just a little was too much. I am going to use this for shaving instead. I used this with a shampoo bar.
I gave this another try. Come to find out this works best for me with a shampoo that has SLS. Then I apply just a little bit and rinse out right away. I can't leave it on my hair. Doing it this way it leaves my hair soft and fragrant.
As for shaving it is amazing for shaving! I don't even need any lotion and it does not clog the razor.

Aubrey Organics is hit or miss for me but this one was definitely a hit. Super thick and moisturizing and it left my hair soft. Not crazy about the fragrance but it doesn't linger. Great conditioner for dry, kinky haired ladies.

Just sat on my hair and did nothing. Rinsed off and felt like I hadn't applied any conditioner at all.
Smell is tolerable, and packaging is too stupid - should be an inverted bottle or tub for the thickness of the product.
