I give this 5 lippies because I got the liter on sale at Ulta for $10 or $15 which is great for a liter of anything! I'm sure I used more than needed but I have highly porous hair. This smoothed it down so much and made detangling a breeze, I had to double check to make sure there were no silicones! I'd get this again!

I really was not impressed I bought it at my work when we had it on sale and I thought I would use it because my hair starts to become immune to certain products Ive been using biolage (lovelovelove!) and I wanted to use this as a relief from that for a little bit. I used it for a week and I absolutely hate it. It drys my hair out, I have now figured out I am not a fan of TiGi shampoos and conditioners just their hair products. I will never use it again.

I'm really disappointed in this product given all the hype I've heard about it.
For one, the scent is overwhelming! I'm not one for foody scents in my hair and body products to begin with, and this is just way too strongly scented.
The product is quite runny, which annoys me, I'd rather not pay for a product with a lot of water in it. The conditioner lathers so much that I had to stop and double check that I'd picked up the conditioner and not another size of the shampoo!
Combing through my hair in the shower with the conditioner still on my hair was a bit difficult, I can't imagine how bad it would have been had I not done that and just tried to comb through after rinsing.
It rinsed easily from my hair, because it's so thin.
My hair did not feel like it'd been conditioned at all when I was combing it after towel drying. I really wanted to use a leave in because of this but didn't so I'd be able to see the full effect of the product.
Upon styling, my hair felt too soft, it didn't want to stay styled at all.
Since this product lathered so much, I decided to try it for CO washing. It was just "ok". I definitely had to use another conditioner on the length of my hair after. I get much better results from $1 VO5 conditioners for CO washing than I did this.

I got a gigantic bottle of this at PureBeauty for $10. They were having a 1/2 off sale on all their large bottles. Great deal, right? Well, even $20 would still be a great price. I digress... I like this conditioner a lot. I used it several years ago when my hair was mid-neck length and virgin. At that time I thought it was great conditioner. It left my hair baby soft but still fluffy, which is difficult to accomplish on fine hair like mine. Since then I've bleached, dyed, hennaed, dyed, hennaed, highlighted, dyed, bleached, hennaed, and dyed again. Whew! So, you would think that this would not be the right conditioner for me now. Nope, it still is. Even with all the damage I've done to my hair this conditioner leaves it baby soft and still fluffy. Perfect! If you have fine, straight hair then I think you will love this conditioner.

I absolutely adore this conditioner! It works wonders on my fine, dry hair. I don't really like the smell too much. It kind of smells like chemical sugar cookies, but its bearable and doesn't leave your hair smelling that way when you get out of the shower.
To use it I first wash my hair with phytojoba at the roots mostly, and then I rinse and apply this at the end and the lenghts of my hair. It leaves it looking soft and shiny! Love this!

The review is for the 750ml bottles of the Tigi Catwalk Honey & Oatmeal shampoo and conditioner. I find the pump dispenser for the 750ml bottles very useful.
I have writen a joint review for the shampoo and conditioner as I find they work best in harmony. However I would say the shampoo is better than the conditioner.
The smell of both the shampoo and conditioner is amazing. I bought them after reading excellent reviews on a review website (the review website begins with the letter "c").
My hair is naturally straight, course, thick and extremely dry. When I was a teenager and had no colour on my hair. I had to use very moisturising shampoos / conditioners and deep conditioning treatments (aimed at coloured and very dry/damaged hair) for it to feel normal and even then it wasn't soft/shiny without lots of serum. That was before I even started colouring my hair!!!!!
Now I colour my hair every couple of weeks (unforunately I have premature grey hair) and I'm in my twenties (28), so I feel really embarassed about having grey roots. I would say I'm about 20% grey (or white) but it's all on top, so very noticeable.
Anyway I have had colour put on colour (I've changed the colour so many times, now I'm blond - I find that the easiest way to cover the greys). My hair is naturally dark blonde/light ash brown.
So my hair is in awful condition. I try everything to make look normal Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment, Philip Kingsley Extreme Elasticizer, L'Oreal Colour & Repair B Powerdoes. To make my hair look normal I have to straighten it and use lots of serum/gloss sprays. I try to avoid straightening my hair often - so I tie it up a lot :(
Anyway for me the shampoo and conditioner weren't moisturising enough. I had really high hopes after reading the reviews of the "C" website. But they didn't work for me (as I have naturally horrible dry hair).
I did find they worked best when you leave the shampoo on for a few minutes (as it's a treatment shampoo) and then rinse towel dry your hair an condition and leave the conditioner on for a few minutes. (So that may work great for someone with better hair than me). As hairdressers recommend if you haven't washed your hair for a couple of days or you use styling products. Shampoo your hair twice - the first shanpoo cleans your hair of dirt or styling products and the second shampoo finishes cleaning & opens the hair "pores" (sorry I don't know the technically term) so the conditioner can work best. Also always towel dry or squeeze the excess water out your hair before you conditioner so you don't dilute the conditioner.
On a positive note, although the shampoo and conditioner didn't work for me. It works fab on my mums hair. Her hair has more dye on it than mine (for years she has put dye on dye - harsh peroxide dyes) and still her hair is in better condition than mine. So I think regards of the times you have coloured or damaged your hair with blow drying/straightening it depends most on your natural hair type how a product will work.
Sorry for the long review. I wanted to be as honest as possible - to say although this product didn't work for me - it will work for others. I read reviews on websites like "C" and when then reviews are excellent I buy the product and except miracles. I get very dissapointed if they don't work for me.
This may sound horrible, but I have been told you can tell if you have naturally very course/dry hair - from the hair on other parts of your body such as eyebrows and the private region (sorry for that information).
I live in the UK I buy the tween pack from a UK website (FU) they post from Jersey. I have shortened the website name, as I don't want to advertise it. In December 2009 it cost £16.08 as they often send 10% discount codes (that is for 1x 750ml shampoo and 1 x 750ml conditionder - the Tween pack). I think they have put the price up now. You can also use cashback websites to get further discount. So I think that is very good value. I find they last around 9 months - so a bargain (as my mums hair is just below her shoulders and she washes her hair often). Obviously if you buy it from a salon or in smaller sizes or separately it is a lot more expensive. So that is why I only gave it a 4/5 for price. Google for the best price.
I like the packaging it is simple and fairly modern/trendy and I love the pump dispenser on the 750ml bottles.
So although I wouldn't personally buy it for myself again. I have re-purchased it for me mum.

Love the smell of this! But more importantly I love the ingredients in it. There great for my waist length hair and keep it in great shape without weighing it down. I have a 25oz pump and it lasted me about 4 months.

I find this to be at best an average conditioner. It is recommended for dry/damaged hair so I thought that it would be quite moisturizing, unfortunately it is not. I feel like this conditioner leaves my hair looking dull. I have had better results with drugstore conditioners that are a fraction of the price. I also have the shampoo, and I actually find that to be a bit better, as it doesn't dry my hair out. What I did like about this was that it smells amazing. I think the only time I would consider purchasing this again would be in the summertime, when I do not need as much conditioning.

This product is average and is certainly not worth what I paid for it. I used this on the ends of my hair and it didn't even moisturize very well. Honestly, there are cheaper products out there that can do a better job.

Yum, Yum, YUM!!! This smells so good that I wouldn't even care if it didn't work well, but it DOES work well too. It leaves my hair soft, shiny and smelling so yummy!

Left my over highlighted hair super soft w/o "cones"
& it smells lovley!

I do love this product ... the oatmeal and honey smells gorgeous, I cant put it into words but you can smell it in your hair till you next wash it and it lingers in the bathroom as well .. not so great when your mother wants to use cos it smells so heavenly :). It hydrates my hair, I use it everytime I wash my hair unless I am using a treatment and then just use the shampoo. This doesnt act as a conditioning treatment, just as your regular daily use one ... it gives a great shine to your hair making it healthy looking and detangles making it easy to comb through when wet. Only downsides are price but I can live with that but i think there are better conditioners out there ... I am wanting to try redken products next !

I am a general lover of Tigi products, love the smell and the conditioning aspects...until I got this product. This is not moisturizing at all. I use about 3 pumps of this to even get anywhere and my ends always feels dry. I am imagining this is because it doesn't have silicones in it, but I am cone addict and without them, my hair is tangly and dry. Although my hair is what you consider damaged and not dry, I think my hair has a big hate-on for proteins and would rather drink up a hydrating product than one for damaged hair. If you want a Tigi conditioner that is incredibly moisturizing with just one pump try Fashionista instead. It is a much better product.

I love the conditioner!
The smell is amazing, like sugar, cinnamon, honey and caramell.
The conditioner makes my hair really soft and shiny even if I use only a little bit. The biggest bottle will last forever for me and I my hair is on hiplenght. My hair isn't really damaged, maybe a little bit dry, but overall in good condition.
The only negative thing about this product is the packaging, it is really thin and cheap plastic, but the pump on the bottle is a plus.
Also the conditioner is a little bit pricey (here in Germany) but if you order it online from uk it's way cheaper.
For people with dry and thick hair is this conditoner is worth a try.

I won't launch into a rave about this product yet. It's a really good conditioner and it does what I expect it to do. It makes my hair shiny, soft, easy to detangle and on top of it, it comes with a unique, lovely, adorable smell. Yes, I love cinnamon. But other than that, it's only a conditioner. I good conditioner, a well-working conditioner, one that's well worth the money, one that delivers what it promises and one that will assault your senses in the shower with a scent that reminds most of us of childhood memories. Cookies & sweets and such. But it's still only a conditioner. I'll give it all five lippies because it works and it's sans silicones, which is always a plus. But I can't say anything about this being a miracle product, really. If your hair likes proteins, then this is for you. If your hair is more dependent on moisture, using this will probably not help anything.
What surprised me is how far you get with only using a little product. My hair is BSL and I don't need more than maybe two hazelnut-sized drops. So one bottle will last quite a while. The packaging might become a problem at some point, because I'm used to turning bottles upside down once there's only little product left. That won't work with this one but I'll find a way around it. Will mayhaps buy again.

I don't want to speak to soon but I think I have witnessed a miracle.
My mom raved to me about the smell of this product so I tried it out while I am staying with her. My hair is fine and fly away and over processed to within an inch of it's life (you want the crazy colours, you have to put up with it). So my usual hair care routine involves a full straightening job to make it fall smoothly otherwise it looks limp and frizzy.
I used this product and some of the Bedhead Volumizing stuff and blew out my hair. I donít know if it was the dryer or the volumiser or just the conditioner by itself but my hair is shiney, straight, non greasy and no frizz what so ever! No straightening needed! I mean I always have to straighten it after I wash it or curl it or something but nope, just a touch of hairspray and a lick of syrum and done. Try this product!
That being said the price is way more than I would usually spend on a conditioner so ask for a sample maybe or buy with a friend/sister and share to make sure this one if for you. And the packaging of the shampoo and conditioner is dumb and the most obvious ploy to sell more product I have ever seen. But then I got the results I wanted with only the conditioner so maybe skip the shampoo. And my mom reports that the effect of the product lessens over time but I think she just needs to do a clarify.
The smell is nice but quite synthetic (hey let me just mention I had far superior results with this than I did with K-Pak last week which I left on for three times as long and smelled like banana chips. Gross, gross, gross!)

I think this is the most delicious smelling conditioner out there. And the smell stays in your hair the whole day. Aside from the amazing smell, it's just a really good conditioner.
I have thin/fine hair that is prone to looking flat or frizzy. This stuff helps my hair maintain enough body while making it soft and shiny. I use VERY little every morning (about the size of 2 peas) and work it thru my hair from my ears down. I stopped using conditioner on my head because I really don't need any with the amount of oil that pours outta my scalp. Also this stuff is 'cone free and has protein!!! Two things my hair loves. It's pretty cheap for me considering how little I use too. And I can get it at my grocery store and not have to make a special trip to the salon.

I really like this conditioner, I don't think I would have ever bought due to the fact that I think TiGi packaging is kind of ugly. The only motivating factor was I saw some socialite in Vogue India that had the most awesome hair, and she claimed that this was one of the most amazing conditioners. I do think this is one of the best conditioners I have tried for my hair type, which is long, wavy and thick. My hair feels moisturized and smoothed right when I get out of the shower, and it does not weigh my hair down. My hair has also been under control during the summer months where it tends to be out of control and frizzy. This conditioner + Kiehl's leave in has left with me good hair for a few weeks now, I have even gotten a few complements! I got the small size, which is 250 ml, for $10 (cnd), and it will last me a good few months since you do not need a lot of product.

I absolutely adore this product. I haven't noticed that smell is overpowering (i know some people hated it), it's very very faint after i get out of the shower and gone after i've dried my hair. but i always get mine at a salon, so maybe that's the difference? anyway. I color my hair every 5 weeks and then i flat iron the hell out of it, and this conditioner keeps it amazingly shiny and happy. it rinses out lightweight too, so i don't get flat sticky hair (hello pantene =] ).
I never have to use a shine serum with this conditioner, it's great stuff and you can usually get shampoo with it for about 20 bucks.

I bought this for my fine curly hair, because the product name appealed to me (Honey & Oatmeal) and because it seemed like it would be a very creamy moisturizing conditioner.
I think the conditioner is very good for detangling-- lots of slip. However, it seems to rely quite a bit on silicones rather than actual moisturizers. I felt like I had to use a lot of product to make my hair feel moisturized, and then it felt coated rather than soft. (I'm comparing this to Deva Care One Condition).
I may continue to use this by mixing it with my Nature's Gate conditioner, to help with detangling. But I will have to use it sparingly, because I find the smell overpowering and unpleasant.
I was expecting a light, sweet scent like a beeswax candle. Instead, this stuff smells like an oversweetened, milky bowl of oatmeal. And the product is so heavily scented that I would consider it inappropriate for shared work rooms. It was so strong it gave me a headache.
This is the second TIGI product that I've been unable to use due to the overpowering smell. I won't be purchasing products from this line again.
