Salon brands, such as my favorite, Pureology, are equal in price to store brands. (Read on for my explanation.) The difference is salon brands don’t damage your hair, unlike the mass-market stuff. A Saturday morning, twelve years ago, I woke up and couldn’t get a brush through my straight, fine, long hair. I went to the nearest salon. They said I’d “Pantene’d” my hair to death. I guess I had, I thought it was good stuff. My hair was soft and silky for so long. Until it petrified itself atop my head, leaving me confused and sullen. Pantene was inexpensive and luxurious, this made no sense - until I was briefed on Pantene’s ingredients, typically found in most non-salon products as well. 3 stylists then consulted about my ordeal, I received a deep conditioning treatment and a firm directive to stop buying non-salon hair care products. They sold me a bottle each of Pureology Hydrate shampoo and conditioner. Within 1 use after my salon deep conditioning treatment, my hair was normal. Is forensic proctology a real field of study? Some people do continue reading, cheers to you. Then, chicken wire became silk after 1 use. As well, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Pureology is so concentrated that about a quarter of the product amount, compared to Pantene and all other mass-market brands, is effective. The price evened itself out. It costed roughly 4 times as much as Pantene, and lasted 4 times (at least) longer than Pantene. Twelve years later, I’m still a loyal Pureology consumer. My (extremely long, fine) hair has been healthy ever since I started using it. Pureology products have very little scent, a plus. They simply smell clean. More bonus points; I’ve never heard of anyone having an Herbal Essences orgasm while washing their hair. That’d be like a man getting aroused by his Axe Body Spray - it’s unnecessary and does not happen. The product either works or doesn’t. This product works better than any hair product I’ve used.

I bought travel sizes of the shampoo and conditioner because I wanted to try them before investing. My hair did not look any better than it does after using a drugstore product and the menthol in it made the skin around my hairline and the nose of my neck burn. It was just so uncomfortable to use.

This didn’t work out for me at all. The main issue was it made my scalp dry and itchy, which I have never suffered from. I was also unimpressed with how it left my hair, it didn’t feel hydrated. I used this in conjunction with the matching shampoo so not sure which was the problem.

This is like a deep conditioner in conditioner form. I'm always amazed how soft and silky my hair is when I rinse it out.
I think this and the shampoo are the best matching shampoo/conditioner duo on the market.
It has a minty scent, which I don't mind, but don't love. I wish it smelled like the shampoo.
My main negative for this product is the price. While it's effective, there are conditioners cheaper than this that work just as well, and other treatments I would rather splurge on. I would recommend L'Oreal Mega Moisture or Aussie 3 Minute Miracle as cheaper alternatives, or Kerastase Masquintense/Oleo Relax (it's about the same price on Amazon) for a splurge. Terax Crema goes great with the (sulfate free) Hydrate Shampoo if you're avoiding silicones, weighs hair down less, and is cheaper than this conditioner. If hair color is the concern, the Fekkai Color Mask is great for bringing out the shine in hair color and is more concentrated for the same price (especially if you can find it at TJMaxx/Marshalls.
Overall, I like this conditioner, but I don't love it.
B+

It moisturised my hair pretty well, my hair had a nice sheen and didn't lose curl. I did however need pretty much of it to detangle my hair (I do this while being in the shower), as much as I would need of a non-salon brand conditioner. I had issues with the accompanying shampoo for making my scalp itchy, probably because the mint and the perfume in it. This has mint and perfume in it as well, so I have to make sure it doesn't get to my scalp (I usually don't mind, as long as I rinse it out properly after).

I waited a long time to write this review because I wanted to confirm that this is one of the few conditioners that my hair loves for years on end. I said that I would repurchase this product because I have in the past, but in all honesty I prefer the Precious Oil conditioner.

I have lots of long, fine, wavy/curly hair that has very dry ends and that gets weighed down easily. It is not easy to both hydrate my hair and keep it from feeling gunked-up. I don't use any heat styling or color my hair, and the only product I use is Fekkai Glossing Cream. I rely on my shampoo and conditioner to make or break how my hair looks, and this conditioner does a FANTASTIC job.

It moisturizes my dry ends, keeps my hair bouncy and alive looking, and never weighs my hair down. I recommend it highly. I actually do not love the minty smell, as I am weird and don't like mint-smelling products (also I think the weird smell of the matching shampoo is God-awful). One of the reasons I tried out the Precious Oil conditioner is that I much prefer the smell, and I have to say that it's a touch more luxurious and hydrating. If you don't mind the minty scent and don't need super duper moisture, this is a great conditioner.

I wouldn't purchase this at full price: I've found reputable sellers on Amazon (just check their ratings) and the liters on sale at Planet Beauty and at Ulta (not at the same time as other brands have liter sales).

Just Bought this Pureology Hydrate Conditioner $28 from my stylist (Not sure where they purchased it? ) when my stylist used it on me at the salon ( a different bottle of Pureology hydrate conditioner) it was AMAZING, felt like a thousand little hands were massaging my head, my scalp was "Tingling" So here's my question: when I used my NEW bottle of the Pureology hydrate conditioner at home, it smelt MINTY but there was NO TINGLING ;( "ZERO" so whats up with that ??????? has anyone else run across this ISSUE? I want to have my scalp TINGLE when I use this $28 bottle of Pureology hydrate conditioner.....

I have very fine damaged blonde hair. My natural hair colour is brunette so I have to go to my hair dresser pretty frequently to keep up with the regrowth. She had used this on me one day at the salon and I have been hooked every since! This made my hair feel so soft and healthy again. The peppermint in this product also makes my hair feel super clean. I usually cannot use really hydrating conditioners due to my thin hair, but I swear this is magic. The price of this product is a little steep but I always end up going back to it because nothing compares. If you're looking for a GREAT conditioner you should give this a try, I can almost promise you you won't regret it.. Other than the fact that you'll wanna buy it again and again

I have wavy hair thats prone to frizz in humid weather. This doesn't completely control frizz, but conditions my hair well without weighing it down. As only a small amount is needed, both this and the shampoo last for close to six months

Lovely peppermint smell too

I have highlighted hair. The product came highly recommended by a store clerk and by the brand's reputation. However, I did not like it because it did not do anything to my hair. The result was not better than any cheap drug store's conditioner. I was very disappointed. I needed to use an leave in conditioner in order to comb my hair and make it soft and manageable. It definitely was not hydrating.
