I use this conditioner as a co-wash for the curly girl method. It is a little thicker than most co-washes, but cleanses well and leaves a refreshingly light citrus scent. I would not, however, recommend this as a regular conditioner for people with curly/dry hair.

I'm a currently an unemployed grad student so I really have to watch my spending. I started buying cosmetics from Trader Joe's to save $. This conditioner is ok. I like that it has more natural ingredients than most conditioners you can buy at the drug store, and I like the smell. I only use a tiny bit because I have really short hair. It doesn't leave my hair with the same feeling as other conditioners because it's not pumped full of silicons. The natural oils help to soften hair, but it doesn't leave it with that super slick feeling. I can't say that it does anything spectaculuar like adds shine or volume, etc. But, it doesn't make my hair heavy or oily, and it's strong enough that my dry hair feels softened and moisturized after using it.

I wanted to like this but after trying three times, it's doing nothing for me. I used it w/ TJ's Nourish shampoo (since they were all out of the other conditioner lines except for this one). It's very rich and thick but despite using lots, my hair still remains tangled. It basically doesn't do anything at all except smells good.

I bought this stuff because I like TJ's products and the smell was really yummy. I bought this in conjunction with the Refresh shampoo. I used both products individually and together. The shampoo cleans well, lathers well and smells fantastic. The conditioner however, is awful. You need half the bottle for the hair to feel saturated. It's not thick or creamy, and doesn't distribute nicely through my hair. After I rinse it out, my hair feels squeaky and tangled, without the usual soft "slip" that I feel with other conditioners. I can barely get a comb through my hair after the shower, and even after it dries my hair feels brittle, frizzy, and dull. It's worse than the White Rain junk you get for 99cents.
I wanted to like this stuff, I really did. But it's just terrible, even at the cheap proce and with the great smell it makes my hair look so damaged and it's not! OH TJ'S! Why you gotta break my heart?

For my color treated hair this is not helpful however it smells great and if your hair is normal and/or fine, this would be ideal. It isn't highly moisturizing but certainly not damaging. I now use this as shaving cream and its nice for that.

I hate to be the hoor that writes the bad review for this but here I am. Skanky as ever. I don't like this :( Which sucks cause it smells like a creamsicle. It leaves my hair dry. Does nothing at all. Doesn't leave it smooth and doesn't detangle. BALLS.
EDIT: I don't know what I was on when I first wrote this review cause now I love this conditioner! Doesn't build up.

This conditioner is not very moisturizing even though it's thick. It is very cleansing, however. I use it for CO washes and it works great. It's actually one of the few conditioners that I can rub into my scalp without making it itchy. I also love how my hair isn't greasy the day after I use it. I have to use a lot of it, but at around 2 bucks a pop, it's very affordable. The scent is light and citrussy and makes my hair smell like oranges. I like how it has mostly natural ingredients. It has a paraben in it but it's the last ingredient. Overall, a really good conditioner for CO washes. I highly recommend it!

The Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner I love, but they were out of it so I thought I'd give this a try. It's horrible and I have never felt that way about shampoo or conditioner. This stuff is no good. It has no emollient qualities to it whatsoever - I felt like I was rinsing shampoo out. Big dissapointment.

This is a decent conditioner for those days that you want to lay off heavier conditioners. I LOVE the scent, and the Refresh Citrus Shampoo is heavenly.
I don't like the way this doesn't rinse well, but it is a great overall product - cheap, natural, smells nice, and I actually like the way the bottle looks (it is unisex enough that my husband will use this stuff and the shampoo).

I really liked this conditioner. The smell was great and it added nice slip. But it didn't do any magic. My hair is fried. Unbelievably dry, breaks off, brittle, straw like, etc. and although I'm sure this would be great if my hair were more healthy, it's not the HG i'm looking for. it's a fantastic price and I can see myself buying it again once I get my hair under control. The fact that it's silacone free doesn't hurt either.

ok, i know i am going against my rule that i must use a product at least 3 weeks before a review, but i think i can break that rule once lol i bought this today at trader's for $2 and its amazing! i used it tonight to CO wash. my hair is soft and silky and smells just like oranges. no tangles as reviewed by others. hair soaked this up like a thirsty camel! provided great slip.
i am hoping this will add shine to my hair as citre shine does (i have since gone sulfate/cone free) and after 3 weeks i will update! i wasn't worried that cetyl alcohol was listed in the ingredients b/c my hair actually likes CA- An emollient and emulsifier that has thickening properties; not to be confused with drying, ethyl alcohols. so far so good :}
ETA: 1.24.08 Still using this for dish and leave-in. One bottle lasts me and dh a month. For extra moisture, add a few drops honey or glycerin. this is an HG, I will never be without it!

I agree with the reviewer above: nice scent, but really made my hair tangly. The TJ's conditioner in the purple bottle (Herbal?) is much better.

My Hair is very fine, but there's lots of it and its very long. Moisture-wise, it is normal -- not oily, not dry. In a conditioner, I look for something that moisturizes, detangles, and adds shine.
I like the ingredients in this conditioner pretty well. It doesn't have sulfates or silicones. It also has a pleasant citrus smell which is fairly strong while I'm in the shower and lingers more subtly on my hair once its dry. It leaves my hair looking bright and seems to brighten my natural blond highlights a bit.
I don't like the fact that this conditioner has alcohol in it. Maybe that's part of the reason it doesn't seem to impart much moisture. What I dislike about this stuff the most is that it doesn't detangle at all.
In short, TJ's Refresh Citrus Conditioner has a pretty nice ingredients list and odor, but doesn't perform well on my hair. I think it might be good for someone with oily hair. I think those with dry hair should definitely avoid it.
