Did not work for me. I have bra-strap length fine hair and it was more tangled than usual in comb out. Plus it would re-tangle once combed. The scalp felt nice, but the ends felt very dry. The scent is really minimal and goes away fast. Overall, I might not even finish the bottle.

BTW, the bottle is a cool design, but once it's about 1/4 empty it's hard to get the product out - even if I leave it upside down.

I do like this. With my dry, curly, short hair, it works well but one caveat: I need a lot. For short hair (the longest layer barely touches shoulders). It is not good value for money, but it does the job. The other problem I have is that on day one, the hair looks nice, but by day two it looks very greasy. It weighs hair down a bit but that's okay. (My hair is not oily/greasy, it's actually super dry.)
.
if i use less, then it looks like i didn't use anything on my hair, and there is no smoothing/detangling benefit! It doesn't feel good, looks puffy and dry, and is just as prone to breakage as if I hadn't used anything at all. So it's a hard balance but once you get the hang of it, it's a satisfactory product. Not really worth three stars, but better than some others in this price range.
I want to try this as a leave-in but so far haven't felt entirely comfortable about actually leaving in a conditioner. I always end up washing them out...so...we'll see.

This is good basic conditioner I include in my rotation. It doesn't perform miracles like the Joico K-Pak, but it does its job. It's terrific at detangling, and I only need a small amount for my long, thick hair. In comparison, with suave conditioners, they will get the job done but I will need much more of the conditioner to detangle my hair...with this product you can tell that it has quality ingredients.

As with the shampoo: Finally, quality ingredients, no harmful ingredients, vegan, cruelty free - and it does condition well, my hair looks and feels great afterwards, smells fine. This works so much better than the other Alba Botanica or Nature's Gate for me. Sticking with Giovanni for beautiful results and no hair/scalp drama!

I have kinky curly 3c/4a high porosity hair - and I tried this for the first time today and omg! First off when I usually use conditioner I need a handful but with THIS a handful was way to much! I couldn't believe it! It left my hair feeling suuuuuper silky and my curls never looked so good! I will buy this over and over again and already recommended this product!

This conditioner is really creamy and works great on my thick and dry hair. I would buy it again!
I have bought the 8.5oz version for about $5.99USD and the liter size for about $12.99 at TJ Max and I think that was a pretty good deal! The matching shampoo is really moisturizing so you really don't need to use that much conditioner.

just used it for the first time and I have to say, I am IN LOVE <3 the smell is very nice and calming but the slip?? the slip is the best I've ever felt in a non silicone conditioner. my hair felt amazing even after rinsing it out. I did pre-poo and this was my co wash but wow! I also used it as my leave in and sealed with an evoo/jbco mix. my 4a curls feel like cotton. I already struggle with HIH syndrome.. I don't think this is going to help any! will most certainly be repurchasing again very soon just to keep a stock in the house

I have been using this conditioner and its shampoo for about 1-2 months. Reason for buying this product was because it is SLS-free. There wasn't much scent and it wasn't foamy. When I first used it, it helped to smoothen my hair and I can feel the difference. However, after a few more weeks of use, my hair became drier and frizzy. Also, my hair didn't feel clean and fresh after using the shampoo.. I guess the shampoo and conditioner weren't exactly bad but it didn't do much for my hair too.

Picked this up on a whim from target. I love what Giovanni stands for but this did not work for me. Tried this years ago so was hoping the reformulation would be a winner but it's still a no go. I have long highlighted fine hair so I need heavy duty detangling which this didn't give. I only used a few times and both times my hair felt strangely dry and dirty when styled. No detangled silky conditioned feeling for me which is what I expect out of a conditioner! 2 strikes out so far on this product so I don't think I will try again - even w/ another formulation.
