I used Crema and Terax products years ago before everything was re-formulated and I loved it. I was broken hearted when I tried the new crema and I literally had to give it up b/c of the smell (horrible). It's been a few years and I had a friend stay with me who is also a big Terax fan. She also uses Crema and Miele. Smelled both and the Crema actually smelled good. Not sure if they had so many complaints they actually did something about the smell or what, but it kind of smelled like baby powder. I got a small sample kit of Terax which included 2 tubes of Crema and Miele. The Miele didn't blow me away and it smelled weird, but the Crema ... it was like the old version that I loved... thick, creamy, smelled wonderful and left my hair looking and feeling like silk = ♥ ... I'll keep using my sample kit and see before I purchase the full size.

I have not found a better conditioner and I am constantly on the search. My hair is dry and frizzy by nature and this is far ad away the best conditioner I have found to keep it tame and healthy. The scent is not amazing, but I am more concerned with results. I try everything but I always end up with this as an HG. It is so moisturizing, it is perfect for me.

At my age and OCD about my hair, I have tried EVERYTHING. Kerastase, Alterna, pro-masks. You name it. This is now my HG daily condish.
I have shoulder length, wavy fine hair, tends to break easy, color treated. Did I mention frizz? Yea, got that too.
I shampoo and and I use one squirt as a leave in. I do it after just barely wringing out my clean hair. I don't believe in the condish and rinse thing...
My hair stays tangle free, controls the frizz and I can blow it dry or let it dry natural. Love this stuff. One 16 ounce bottle is about $48 retails but shop around and get it on sale. My last bottles I found for $38. One 16 ounce bottle lastes me at least 4 months. I don't have to shampoo but every third day...

I was so compelled to write a review for this product that I just had to do it now after my shower. After finishing my Kerastase Masquintense I wanted to try Terax Crema based on its popularity. What I particularly love about this conditioner is how clean and lightweight my hair feels after just one use. I also like how it doesn't strip my hair of its red haircolour - that's a big plus. However, I absolutely HATE the fragrance. It smells absolutely FOUL, like dead fish or a men's toilet. It's a huge letdown and very off-putting. I was very glad that it doesn't linger afterwards. For now I'll see whether or not I'll get used to it. That its the first conditioner to not completely strip my hair down is a huge benefit so maybe I'll just put up with it for now.
**EDIT: Added back one lippie because after the second wash, I'm completely used to the scent now. Funny, it doesn't even smell quite like fish anymore. It's still not quite floral in my mind, but its definitely tolerable now. But the major point goes to its detangling ability. It's fantastic!

My HG of conditioners. I've been using this conditioner for several years, and I credit it for my hair's health, strength and few split ends. It really made a huge difference on my hair.
It is a bit heavy, I find, so I've downgraded its use to weekly deep conditions, and I use a cheaper conditioner on other days. But anyone with dry and damaged hair should start out with daily use. You could even do a deep condition to kick start the process.
In conjunction with my conditioner, I use Aveda Shampure shampoo.
My hair is long, past my shoulders, and on the thick side (but nothing too extreme).

I have straight coarse asian hair which can get limp with some conditioners that don't rinse out properly, but this stuff is fabulous. It is quite moisturising but leaves hair silky and light. I've used a tube and will stock up next with the 500ml bottles. This with Aveda Brilliant shampoo is my favourite combination.
Contrary to others I like the smell, a subtle floral scent.
EDIT - just bought up another 2 x 500 mL bottles. There is no greater conditioner for my hair.

One of the best hair conditioners, hands down.
My hair is medium thickness, long and highlighted and this conditioner is perfect for me. I love the light scent, it feels luxurious when you put it on and my hair is silky smooth afterwards. Keep buying it in bulk although the price is quite high for the quantity you get.

Worst overated product I ever got suckered into buying.

This left my thick, wavy coarse hair just as dry as it was before I applied it. Useless product for me.

This is by far my favorite conditioner of all time. After I put this stuff in my hair it is INCRREDIBLY silky, soft, and tangle-free. The great thing about this product is that it can double as a conditioner and a deep treatment. But, i usually use it as a deep treatment (meaning I leave it on for at least 10 minutes) because I can't bare only leaving it on for like 3 minutes. After I rinse this out of my hair, my hair is completely frizz free; and keep in mind, I have black, relaxed hair so my hair is usually frizzy and crazy looking lol. Now, a lot of people have been giving this product a 1 (on a scale of 1-5) because of the smell. Here's the thing, this product does have a very...interesting smell. It's not completely gross (in fact, i almost kind of like it) and people exaggerate the smell a lot. The smell definately does not stay in your hair after you rinse anyways. And the fact that it does not smell amazing makes me feel like there are not as many added, artificial fragrances (which cannot be good for your hair). Basically, if your biggest concern is the smell of your conditioner, then you should not be paying more than a dollar for it.
UPDATE: So, I still really like this as a deep conditioner but have found a better normal conditioner at a fraction of the price (kirkland moisture conditioner costs $8 for a liter and moisturizes the hell out of my hair). However, I'm not sure if I would repurchase this again and pay $40 just for a deep conditioner...I'm on the search for a cheaper product that's just as good of a deep conditioner. BUT if you don't mind spending that much money on this then by all means go ahead and continue using because my hair texture and manageability has greatly improved after using this!

I can see this conditioner is quite popular, however mixed reviews. I love this conditioner, and I believe it was love at first use. I was introduced to this pretty pricey product about 3 years ago when I was desperately searching for a conditioner that could quench my thirsty strands thirst as well as not weigh down my very fine hair. I found this conditioner met my expectations. The smell, I love. I don't find it to smell fishy, plasticy, or like wet dog, as I've seen described in the reviews below. To me it smells light and floral. Another thing is it doesn't irritate my skin, which is severely sensitive. It leaves my hair to be extremely soft and very shiny. I am very pleased with this conditioner and have no desire to change, I just hope my poor college student budget will allow me to continually purchase a $22 6 oz bottle!

I used this product before I became a vegan and started reading ingredient lists more carefully. So I didn't notice at the time that this conditioner has tallow (a beef fat derivative). When I used this I noticed it had an unpleasant smell that seemed to increase the older the product became. I'm wondering if that's the tallow. Anyway, this product was okay for helping with dry hair but I found something so much better. I switched to organic, raw, extra-virgin coconut oil. I leave it on for one hour and then wash and use a light conditioner. It's amazing. I've happily moved on from Terax Crema and don't miss it at all - especially the price.

I keep coming back to this product. I wish I could give it a 4.5 because it's amazing but not perfect. I love the soft scent, not sure what other people don't like. It's possible as a previous reviewer mentioned that they had expired product. It's lightweight and moisturizing. To be fair though I have soft straight hair that is not treated.

I was very hesitant to try this because of all the reviews stating that it had an offensive scent. Once I looked at the ingredients.. it made sense: it stinks because those people have an expired product. There's an animal-derived protein in there that no doubt will go rancid after a period of time - so something to consider - this product does not have a super long shelf life. With that being said, I bought mine online (just a travel-size because sephora stopped carrying this, wtf?) and immediately sniffed it once I received it. Mine smells nice, clean and light. Definitely not something that would turn me off, which again concludes that this product will turn if not used (or has been sitting on a shelf for a long time). Buyer beware. Otherwise, I thought it worked great for the final "C" in the CWC method - gives lots of slip, detangles and feels light on my fine hair once dried. I would repurchase, provided it's not an old bottle :)

My hair definitely feels smoother and more "elastic" after using Terax .. some say it's just a really good "detangler" .. but I think credit is due for its conditioning qualities. It's light, moisturizing, restores shine, and lasts a while. A little goes a long way. I use it for normal conditioning, but wouldn't recommend it for deep conditioning.

I tried this and liked it very much. It did what it was supposed to, and conditioned my hair very well without being very heavy or weighty. Given the price of this, however, and the fact that there is not very much product by weight and price compared to some other deep conditioners, I would only buy this on sale or through a distributor for cheap. If you love the Crema, but don't want to shell out the bucks, I would very strongly recommend Biolage's Conditioning Balm, which is an excellent product which conditions beautifully, and is also more reasonably priced as it is quite widely available.

When my hair was super damaged back in college, this was a life saver. It made my hair smooth without weighing it down.
I tried to use it again about a year ago and to my disgust, they'd changed the formulation and the scent. It smells so nasty now.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Curly Eyes: Blue
I really like this! Since no one would respond to my swap requests, I went ahead and purchased this and I don't regret it. The smell is a little funky and off putting but it did a pretty good job detangling. I used it before going to bed last night and put my hair in a pony, today I have the softest hair with good curls & minimal frizz. Smell is no longer noticeable, but I did use Philosophy's Amazing Grace conditioner as a leave in. Thumbs up!

I don't understand what everyone has against the scent. To me it smells fine.
I'd been curious for a long time whether this would help detangle and condition my super-thick, dry, damaged, very curly hair (3B). I bought a 2 oz. sample for $9 and I am fairly happy with it. I'm at a point where I am totally shaking up my entire routine and rethinking every product because since a haircolor disaster left my hair extremely dried out and nearly ruined over a year ago, I am in a place where every conditioner has stopped working for me. My former HGs (DevaCurl products mainly) stopped working and can do nothing to provide slip, detangle or soften the parched mess.
Good news is that this Terax has actually been somewhat successful. It has a nice rich texture, absorbs nicely when I massage it in, and gives some degree of slip to allow the wide-toothed comb to get through the curls. My hair dries down to a soft and shiny finish, but that probably has a lot to do with the leave-ins and stylers I'm using as well.
Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by this and will purchase a full-size tube in the hope that it doesn't stop working.
