Update: I purchased bottles of this conditioner at the start of November and found that my conditioners on (1/19/14) had mold. All my HH products were tossed.
Price: $13.00 for 8 oz bottle
Purchased At: Hairitagehydration.com
Promises: “This conditioner adds softness and moisture to hair and also helps repair hair and make it stronger.”
Directions: After shampooing, add the amount of conditioner desired according to the thickness/length of your hair. Apply in sections from tip to root, detangling hair as you go. Leave in for 3-5 minutes, then rinse completely. May be used for deep conditioning.
Ingredients: Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Shea Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Mallow Extract.
Packaging: I’ll save you my normal I-wish-it-came-in-a-jar rant lol. The only ‘con’ about the packaging of this conditioner is that the product label is paper and hasn’t been holding up well against my wet palms.
Fragrance: It’s very light and fruity and is one scent I wish lingered a little longer in my hair.
Consistency: This conditioner has a creamy, not-too-thick consistency.
Number of uses: I got 4 uses out of one bottle.
Effectiveness: I’ve been using this conditioner for month, twice a week. I loved this conditioner from the first time I tried it but as with all products, I’m always on the look out for the other shoe to drop. But that other shoe? No where in sight.
This conditioner has consistently given the same results: soft, smooth, moisturized, less tangled hair with each use. When applied to dry hair, this stuff sinks right into my hair and fluffs it right up. It’s like my dry hair is just infused with tons of moisture on application. I’ve found that because it does absorb so well and so quickly into my hair, it’s very easy for me to get heavy handed when applying to my hair.
One of the ‘cons’ of texlaxing I posted about in this post is that different textures respond differently to products, that still holds true with this conditioner. My new growth and texlax hair drink this stuff up, my bone straight ends? Not so much. My bone straight sections are still just as moisturized and softened as the rest of my hair after deep conditioning with this conditioner, but the whole ‘sinking in’ effect isn’t as prominent.
This conditioner also provides a nice amount of slip and detangles my hair well, but again, new growth and texlaxed hair detangle more easily with this conditioner than my bone straight ends. It also rinses out well and doesn’t cling to my hair and scalp.
Will I repurchase? Definitely. My hair is soft, smoothed (no raised cuticles around these parts), and adequately moisturized = a keeper to me.
