Even though I have white skin and green eyes, since I am Puerto Rican, I have some beautiful features coming from the awesome african genes in my blood. One of the traits I love the most is my hair! I have a head full of long (it reaches the lower part of my back), thick, ondulating hair. Seriously, I have so much hair, there are months in which the hair dresser needs the help of other two people to blow dry and iron it.
Well, with great hair comes great responsibility, and since I have dyed it three different shades of color over the course of five years (brown/black, pumpkin red/blonde, and auburn) , and I always straighten it myself, I need a great product that can help me keep it soft , healthy and shiny.
This conditioner does the trick and more! It has a thick consistency and a yummy smell. You can feel the difference it makes even while applying it in the shower! I always avoid the roots, obviously, because it can make my hair greasy earlier on. But this product hasn't failed me so far, and even if I try others, I always come back to this one. I owe it the beauty of my shiny locks! Recommend 100%

Mixed feelings about this product. The scent is heavenly, in my opinion, but also very strong, so steer clear if you're sensitive to that. It's not really anything special besides that, to be honest. The sulfates in it dry my hair out over time, but it doesn't bother me if I'm using soft water on my hair. I guess this is one you really need to try for yourself. I keep buying it because of the scent and I only use about half the bottle before I reach for something else.

Just like most of the HE products, okay at first but after a few uses I'm not impressed. It seems like all the HE products are the same. I personally need a LOT of it to get any kind of silky/defrizz results. I don't have a lot of hair and it's thin at that, so that's annoying. I saw no other pros even with using tons of it.
I also have to say the design of this bottle made me throw it out sooner than I should have. It got way too difficult to handle in the shower. I got frustrated just trying to get the conditioner out of the bottle I threw it away maybe half full. For the blah results (with the amount I needed) it wasn't worth it.
I think I'll officially quit on HE products especially if this bottle design keeps up. It's not so cheap either.

The shampoo was horrible, but the conditioner was average. The conditioner only made my hair shiny.

LTR is one of my favorite products by HE. so far, i can only trust on HE products range. I'm really done with other brands. I think i just found the right solution for my hair. LTR is the best conditioner for my hair. I don't use it alone, i often mix it up with other HE conditioners such as Hello Hydration and None of your friziness. To me, it doesn't work wonder if i only had it alone on my hair, but when i mixed them, it blends really well and leaves my hair softer, shiny and less frizzy. For post wash, i will apply the dangerously straight leave in cream to add protection to my hair. All i gotta say, the products are helpful . My hair type- fine hair, short and easy to break without a proper care.HE does take a good care on my hair. I will buy the product again!!!

I purchased LTR because I needed to stock up on conditioner and I wanted a silicone one for easier detangling. The packaging, the colors, the words, the SMELL...I was (am) a complete sucker for it. Plus I liked that it's for "long hair" (even though most the formulations are the same minus 2-3 ingredients in the HE lines). I'm trying to grow my medium length hair out and this seemed like a good product to try. It was $4.79 for the regular sized bottle at Rite Aid, and you could probably find it even cheaper in other stores.
Now, getting this was a gamble for me because I've tried Hello Hydration and None of your Frizzness conditioners and they both broke me out. I tried everything to avoid that issue too, so don't try and play me like I don't know how to wash my face after I condition, I'm not simple. I figured that I used to wash my hair a lot more frequently and maybe if I rotated this conditioner with others and only used it every couple weeks I'd be fine. I've used this conditioner twice and that plan's worked fabulously with no zits (so far).
As for results...LTR leaves my hair with beautiful moisture and a lovely scent that fades slowly enough where I can still appreciate the smell and quick enough where it's not overpowering. The moisture it provides is very non-chemically feeling (my worst fear of silicone conditioners) and as long as my face stays clear I'll consider this a worthwhile investment. Also, my hair does feel smoother and my usually coarse/frizzy ends felt a lot softer.

The Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship conditioner is a plesently scented, light pink conditioner that comes in a red bottle with pretty writing on it. I love the little tips that come on each bottle, but that's pretty much where the love stops with this. The scent is very sweet, and after a while, I found myself being almost nauesated by it because I'd smell it on my hair after I rinsed, and the day after showering it would still linger on it. I also found that it caused me to break out on my hairline, but it was nothing major, and I wouldn't dock points if it had done what I wanted it to, which was help make my hair longer. After using it for a few months, I finally had to face the facts- it did nothing for my hair. No shine (which I need- my hair is super dull), minor softness (but I have pretty soft hair natrually)...nothing. I won't repurchase due to it being a pretty average conditioner, but it could work for you.

You get what you pay for I guess, I don't love it.. It does smell great and the smell lasts, but I can't say it helped at all with any split ends or making it look shinier or healthier. I do like that it doesn't leave a thick residue, and it doesn't leave my hair feeling tangled. But, I'd rather spend a few extra bucks on a better drugstore brand than buy this again, it's just really nothing special.

After reading so much love, I bought this for my relaxed hair (currently on a stretch) hoping for the melted away tangles but this was \nothing special at all, if not bad. As I rinsed it out, my hair felt wet-dry, stringy, not detangled at all, and I just knew it wouldn't end well. It smell's nice and has cute packaging but its never touching my head again.

This conditioner is AMAZING!! It smells luscious and it moisturizes really good. I think this product works best for curly hair because it made my hair more curly and shiny! It is very thick so it moisturizes very well. The reason I gave this a 4 not a 5 is because it stopped working after awhile, I think it's because my hair got used to it. But after I switched to a different conditioner for a while and then came back to this one it did the same job as it did when I first got it! :))

This is my favorite, go-to conditioner. Several of my friends and I agree that this is the ONLY conditioner we have ever used that holds its scent on your hair after you leave the shower (and even the house!) It makes tangles slide right out, and leaves my hair super soft. In my opinion, this is one of the best drugstore products on the market. Bottom line? I love it!

I lalalaloovee this conditioner!
I bought it at walmart. Got the family size on sale for $4, woot woot!
Lol, but it leaves my hair completely tangle free and makes my hair feel so smooth and amazing! As for breakage, my hair just won't break. Isn't that amazing?!
I actually really wanted to try it when I was at my friend cassies house and saw it in her shower. I knew it must be amazing, because this girl has beautiful thick lucious waist-length hair! I paired this conditioner with my loreal sulfate free everstrong reconstruct shampoo, and my hair is so healthy! I only use heat on my hair about once a week and I let my hair air dry after I get out of the shower. Since the conditioner is serum infused, once my hair is dry I apply a dime sized bit of it onto my palms and distribute it through my hair. This makes it 5xs stronger! Since I'm a sucker for fast growing hair, I do all of this and daily I take multivitamins. My hair has grown soooo much! Its so thick and healthy! I'M IN LOVE WITH MY HAIR!

I LOVE THIS, SMELLS WONDERFULL, GREAT TEXTURE, LEAVES MY HAIR TANGLE FREE AND SMOOTH.

Leaves hair silky and smooth, however because it's designed for long hair, if you put too much conditioner around the scalp area your roots get greasy. So try to only cover the tips and just barely enough to get the roots and scalp.

I love this conditioner! I usually dislike herbal essences line because they tend to usually dry out my hair. But this conditioner combined with Aussie's 3 minutes deeeeep treatment, my hair's always silky soft, healthy, and shiny. I would definitely buy this product again!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I loveeeeeee this stuff. Oh emm gee, this product not only smells AH-MAY-ZING, but oh it untangles and de-frizzes my hair superrrr well!

This shampoo and conditioner left my hair very soft and silky feeling. The smell lingers for awhile also which is nice =)

I really want to love this, I really do, but I just can't! I've bought three bottles of this just to keep trying it out since the smell is absolutely phenominal and the curvy red bottle is so attractive...but the results are pretty horrific. My hair feels so dry and thirsty for moisture after use. I think that's how a lot of Herbal Essences products work - pretty packaging and smells to lure you in, but disappointment to follow! Boo :(.

Herbal Essences' Long Term Relationship Shampoo&Conditioner are a hair care system, along with a leave in conditioner and a hair mask. Long Term Relationship is meant to prevent long hair from damage and split ends, all while keeping it satin soft. The formula is "inspired by the finest" and features Red Raspberries (as opposed to blue?), and Brazilian silk. I purchased the shampoo and conditioner at Rite Aid for $4.45 each, but they can usually be found for much cheaper, Herbal Essences almost always has a sale or coupon out. Herbal Essences is a widely available brand, and make their products in the US out of US and Imported ingredients. Herbal Essences claims they don't test on animals, but I've heard conflicting information, so check a source you trust before deciding to use their products.
Packaging is the same wavy bodied bottles found in the rest of the Herbal Essences line up. The shampoo bottle, made of translucent red plastic, stands up right and has a pop up, green, dispenser, the conditioner bottle stands top down, and is made of opaque red plastic. Both bottles feature the tagline "Love Your Long Hair". Both bottles are recyclable. The label features what appears to be sprigs of grassy plants and little trees. I don't know what that has to do with hair. Maybe they're trying really hard to convey a natural image for the brand. Maybe they're trying to say this shampoo will make your hair grow as fast as grass. Maybe I'm reading into it too much.
I really like how Herbal Essences prints little facts, trivia questions, and tips on the back labels of their bottles. It makes the brand seem fun and current, and besides, who doesn't love reading in the bath tub?
The scent of this shampoo/conditioner is kinda fantastic. Herbal Essences lists the scent notes as berries, violet, cherry wood, jasmine petals, and red orchids. The violet scent is pretty strong in this shampoo, which is good in my book. Violet is one of my favorite scent notes, but some find it obnoxious, so give this shampoo a sniff before you buy. I pick up the berries, jasmine, and orchids in this as well, but the cherry wood seems lost in the mix to me. Maybe someone with a stronger nose can pick it out, but my sense of smell has been kinda fail since my adenoidectomy. All up though, this scent is some kind of wonderful. It kinda makes me drool. /attractive and feminine.
Long Term Relationship shampoo is a thick, creamy, pearly pink gel. Much like Hello Hydration, I have to use a lot of this shampoo to get enough lather to coat my long, nearly waist length hair. For a shampoo for long hair, you think Herbal Essences would've taken something like that into account. Maybe they did, and figured we'd buy more shampoo if we have to use lots. Either way this shampoo isn't a class A latherer. I've found this to be true of all creamy formula Herbal Essences shampoos.
The matching conditioner is a creamy, thick, pink substance that resembles raspberry yogurt, my kryptonite. For the first time ever, I'm going through a shampoo faster than a conditioner. I have tons of this stuff left. This conditioner goes the distance, it spreads evenly through my hair, coating all of it with only a bit of product.
How does Long Term Relationship perform? Is it protecting my hair from damage and split ends? I think it might be. I have naturally strong hair that rarely gets split ends no matter how long it gets. I've gone a year without a hair cut and only needed 1/2 an inch cut off because of splits n'at. However, I notice that my hair doesn't get matted as badly as it did before I started using Long Term Relationship. The knots that I do get are easily detangled by the conditioner. The shampoo alone seems to keep my hair smooth and clear for at least two days. Win.
So will I have a Long Term Relationship with this shampoo and conditioner? Maybe one day, after my Herbal Essences series is completed. I really like how it manages my hair for me. The only real negative I have for this shampoo is how fast I'm going through it. Maybe if I repurchase I'll go for the family sized bottle. I recommend this epic shampoo and conditioner if you have long hair that's relatively healthy, and want to maintain it.
