This a super conditioner at a great price. The bottle is not so attractive, but the contents are delighteful. It smells nicely of almond, but not so much that your hair smells after rinsing (so it won't compete with your perfume or lotions). It conditions my fine hair perfectly, adding shine and hydrating, but without weighing down my hair. I would repurchase over and over.

This is a nice conditioner. I found that it is about the maximum level of moisture that my fine hair can tolerate without looking flat or dull. This detangles well and leaves my hair soft and shiny after use. I think the smell is great -- it's just a nice, clean-smelling, neutral scent.

The main reason why I'm not repurchasing this is because my favorite "value" conditioner is Vo5. I wanted to try a more moisturizing conditioner, but I figured out that I prefer a slightly lighter conditioner than this one. Plus, the Vo5 is even cheaper than this, ounce for ounce.

My other issue with this product (which has nothing to do with its performance) is its marketing/packaging. On the version I purchased, it tries to compare itself to Aveda brand and has a label on it that says "100% Natural." At first glance, you might think that this product is a cheaper dupe of an Aveda product.

But when you look at the fine print on the label, it says "moisturizes *as well as* Aveda" and "with 100% Natural Almond and Shea Butter." When you look at the ingredients list, it is obviously not a "natural" product even though those ingredients are included. I'm sure there are many "non-natural" products that moisturize as well as Aveda, but I'd imagine that people who buy Aveda products buy Aveda because they are "100% natural" products.

This doesn't matter to me personally because I'm just not able to afford to have all of my products be 100% natural, but I think that if I were in a hurry and looking to buy a "natural" product, I might pick this up by mistake. So, if you're actually looking for an Aveda dupe, look elsewhere -- otherwise, I think this is a good product. It is just not what I prefer for my hair.

I just started using both the shampoo/conditioner of this brand - I loved the smell, and the conditioner rinsed well and left my hair soft. Once dried, it was nice and bouncy, not dry on the ends. Will use for awhile and see how I like it! I hope it lives up to it's reviews - because for the price, I can get big bottles of both shampoo/conditioner which would be great!

I decided to try this out a long time ago when I was a broke college student and couldn't afford expensive conditioners. before this I would just use the Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner, but I found that with that one, I kept running out of product quickly. With aussie, my hair felt smooth but somehow my hair was still rough as soon as I blow dry and had a lot of hair fall out. This shampoo doesn't run out on me quickly which is great because I use a lot. (my hair length had been halfway down my back for years now) I also don't experience as much hair fall out as before and a lot easier to brush out in the shower.

Love this conditioner! Smells great and keeps my hair healthy! I always repurchase this one becuase I never use any product in my hair besides this and the matching shampoo. These products alone keep my hair in great condition. Great price for the best conditioner!

I love this stuff, it's one of the few hair conditioners I've actually repurchased. It's strange, but I think I've been using this conditioner for an entire year now. That's just crazy talk. I use it with the conditioner and what ever other deep conditioner I feel like using. Before I purchased this shampoo and conditioner, I was using the L'Oreal Evercreme system and while it was good(still use the leave in conditioner), it was more expensive than the Suave and I'm just as happy with the suave. I looked at the ingredients in the conditioner before purchasing and was surpirsed by how high up the list of ingredients the shea butter actually was. That's always nice and sort of unusual for Suave. In any case, I use this product because it makes my hair soft and smooth and shiny.

I've been using this for years. For me it is moisturizing, and overall I find it to be a fantastic conditioner.
When it comes to conditioner, I've tried them all: From Paul Mitchell to Alterna to Redken to Joico, Matrix, Pantene, and the long list goes on and on and on.
This is some seriously good stuff. And for three dollars if you don't like it throw it out.

This conditioner works surprisingly well for me. It leaves my hair soft, smooth and healthy looking. It doesn't weigh my hair down. My hair just looks great when I use this. I haven't tried the matching shampoo yet, but I may in the future. Also, I like the smell of it. Very, very reasonable price for such a great product.

There is a noticeable difference in my hair after rinsing this conditioner out. My hair is softer and silkier, and this is coming from a naturally curly girl with VERY dry & frizz-prone hair. It's a good price for the size of the bottle & I like the scent, although it can be a bit strong for some people. I took off one lippy for the -cone but other than that, I was pleasantly surprised that such a cheap conditioner could make an evident effect on my hair, and usually rinse-out conditioners don't!
