I use this along with Nexxus therappe with excellent results for my fine, dry hair. This conditioner is silicone free. Yes, it contains mineral oil but for me, it really helps to hold moisture in my hair. Products with Jojoba oil and coconut oil did nothing to help my dry hair. This also contains keratin amino acids, panthenol (b5) and plant lipids to moisturize and strengthen hair. Contains paraben preservatives. Purchasing the 33 0z size is the best value.

I bought this in the the 33 oz. form two years ago and I still have some left. I use about a kiwi size amount mixed with glycerin halfway down my length after I apply my Keracare Humecto. This really moisturizes and I use this as a deep conditioner. I'm African-American and relaxed and I use this everytime I wash my hair.

I am generally a cheapskate when it comes to my haircare, and as such I would never have purchased a Nexxus product on my own. My husband actually picked it up for me... I asked him to buy me some conditioner at Sam's Club and he decided to buy the most expensive kind they had (said I deserved it LOL). I have to admit that this is a great conditioner. It smells lovely but not too strongly (kind-of coconutty?), moisturizes well, and doesn't weigh my hair down. I love the fact that Humectress doesn't build up on my hair, even though I haven't been using a clarifying shampoo. My hairdresser was pleased to find out that I was using this instead of my usual cheap stuff, and Humectress does seem to be gentle on my haircolor. Although I still think this is expensive, the huge $30 pump bottle at Sam's Club lasts for an eternity (several months). I would definitely recommend it to friends.

This left my color-treated curly hair looking dry and frizzy. It's not the worst conditioner I've used, but nowhere near as good as DevaCurl One Condition.

This is a very substantial conditioner, and I would not recommend it to anyone with fine hair, as it leaves the hair feeling heavy and more "coated" that most conditioners. For me, almost greasy, even. Perhaps it would work for someone with a different hair type.

i have long, tangly, damaged hair, so i thought a name like humectress would mean a rich conditioner. i was wrong tho, this stuff isnt thick enough to detangle my hair or leave it soft and smooth. i also had just as much frizz as before i used it. maybe this would work for someone with shorter or finer hair, but for hair that needs serious work, it sucks

Fine, thin hair; medium brown with a bit of gray: I received a sample of this in a swap and used it in conjunction with Nexxus Humectress conditioner (also a sample), so I can't fairly comment on its solo use. However, used in conjunction with the conditioner, it definitely made my hair thicker and tamed the static I always get in the winter from the higher heat levels in my apartment. The results were replicable over five or so washes, so the results seem dependable and not subject to external vagaries. I have tried other shampoos and conditioners to rectify the "static problem," but this combination was the only one that got the job done! I have since arranged swaps for the full-size version of both items, but if I had to, I would surely purchase these two outright.

Used it this morning in conjunction with Therappe and it left my hair a frizzy mess. Tried to calm down the frizz with a serum, leave in conditioner and a gel - nothing worked. The scent, loved by others, smells like a urinal cake to me. That cheap sweet cherry odor. Thank goodness it did not linger long. Won't buy this again.

This product doesn't work for me. I tried it years ago and I threw it out after a couple of uses, but after reading all of the raves on the hair board for a no-cone conditioner, I wanted to try it again. I have fine, thin hair and this just leaves it coated and greasy, but at the same time dry and rough feeling.

OK, proved to myself yesterday that this no cone conditioner does not work well in my hair. Made my hair feel coated and sticky, not even a minimal slip, felt very weird, cant explain it. Hopefully you will have better luck with this conditioner.
