I love trying new products but this is one of those conditioners I always come back to. The moisture is hard to beat.
This is my second time purchasing Elucence Moisture Balance conditioner. I love everything about this conditioner, the way it smells, how soft it leaves my hair, and how moisturized it is after I use it.
Worked great only after I removed all the residual silicones. I have long, high density, med to thin hair with no natural shine and a few end that are very porous. My tangled rats nest rinsed out nearly tangle free. One star for not being one 100% tangle free. Overall very impressive.
Definitely gives my hair the added moisture that it needs on hot days. One of my fav leave in conditioners paired with my homemade oils.
Love, Love, Love! I've been buying this conditioner for about 3 years now and have no intentions to get anything else. Provides amazing slip and makes my detangling process very easy which is always a plus for my 4a hair type
I really really really love this conditioner as my leave in. It smooths my hair and makes it easy to finger detangle. I'm so glad I decided to try it out and after my first order I ended up ordering the liter size :)
This conditioner provides so much moisture and slip while shampooing , the detangling process was much easier , the foaming action that's created after mixing with H2O while on hair adds extra hydration to the hair leaving it soft, curly, moisturized and detangled. Ready for styling.
This conditioner is very good at keeping my hair moisturized and healthy. Will always repurchased.
I have 3c/4a low porosity hair and this conditioner is amazing for my curls. I tend to be heavy handed with products but I learned that a little goes a long way with this conditioner. I apply it after shampooing then use a Denman brush to distribute the conditioner through my hair. I tie up my hair, do the rest of my shower routine, and rinse out the conditioner just before leaving the shower. This conditioner makes my hair so soft and easy to manage. I'm sure there are better conditioners out there but my hair likes Elucence and the price is definitely right so I have no reason to complain.
Was okay. My hair is high Po, so I thought would LOVE the ingredients. True test was after my hair dried, became frizzy, cotton. good product; just not for my hair.
I have 4C hair. This stuff is great!! I especially love it in summer. As a one minute conditioner after swimming it is awesome! As a protective pre-swim coating it is awesome! I love it as a leave-in conditioner after a wash because it helps with detangling. My hair feels moisturized, soft and strong. I get the liter bottle because it is so versatile, I find myself going through a lot of it!
Love this conditioner!!! I used this as a leave in and not only was I able to detangle my hair with absolutely no effort, I have lots of moisture. I admittedly jumped online and ordered another bottle. This will definetly be a staple product.
It is amazing how moisturizing this conditioner is! I am fairly new to the curly girl method, and I am glad I found this conditioner because my conditioner search is over! I love using this as a leave in. I will definitely re-purchase in the big bottle! (MY hair is low porosity & color treated).
This has become my Holy Grail! I use this twice a week to cowash, as it offers great slip for detangling and leaves my hair feeling like silk. I previously used DevaCurl One Condition which does not compare for its expensive price. Although it was already in good shape, my hair has looked so healthy and shiny after using this conditioner; a definite must-have for any curly girl.
i like this conditioner very much. i think it does a great job of moisturizing my hair and will keep on using it.
This is a great conditioner on 4b/c. HG for me...been using for years, including pre-natural days. Very moisturizing, however find its most effective on my hair with frequent alternating w/protein condition (at least twice a month).
It did not work for the main reason I bought it, which was to act as a detangling cowash. In fact, I was quite disappointed in that regard, as my Herbal Essences Hello Hydration (my long-time, on-again-off-again love), did a MUCH better job detangling my hair than this did. However, I will not discount this product completely, as I also bought it with the intent of using it as a leave-in, and as far as I can tell, it will be much better utilized in this way. I can actually say that, all else in my hair routine equal, my hair is noticeably softer when I use this as my leave-in (and I cannot often say that my hair is SOFTER after using a product). I'm still looking for the perfect leave-in, but this is definitely a high contender in my search, and at this point I would definitely consider repurchasing (as it is cheaper than most things of its type and seems like it will last a while as well).
Okay so I want to re-review this product. I was incorrect when I said it was protein free. However, that is besides the point. This is the best conditioner I have ever used on my hair both relaxed and natural. To me that says a lot. This is the only conditioner I have been able to find for a great price that is concentrated, will give my hair what it needs, allows me to finger detangle, can be used as a leave-in (Works great in the LOC method for the L part.), and lasts. I have been natural for approximately 1 year and 10 months. I transitioned post relaxer and never looked back. I have spent money on lots of products but this, other than water, is the first holy grail product I can claim. Just the other day I was able to put my hair in a bun. I have never been able to do that. Not even when I was relaxed. My hair is retaining length and it began when I started using this conditioner. Elucence thank you for this product. And Curlmart thank you for selling it. (Type 3c, 4a, 4b)
Great product. I love this stuff. I pray they never change the formulation for this conditioner.
I have a mix of type 3c and 4a hair. I have low porosity, low density hair and my hair is protein sensitive. I first ordered the conditioner because it was protein free and a really nice price. And after several washes I can confidently say that this conditioner has been exactly what my hair needs. When I apply it to wet hair my hair softens instantly and I can easily finger detangle. I can also use this conditioner as a leave-in. Also, a little bit goes a very long way because the product is concetrated; and I'm sure if I mixed in a little olive oil & honey this could be a great deep conditioner. I'm running low but I'm definitely going to start buying this by the liter. Great product and price! I love this stuff! The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because using it as a deep conditioner by itself didn't work so great, but if I put on some JBCO and Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer it works great. Overall I would give it 4.8 stars.
I love this stuff I use it for everything, co wash, deep dt, and it is an Excellent leave-in. No build up what so ever. Keeps my hair soft and,moisturized. The slip is awesome. Will buy again:-)
By far the best detangling conditioner I've encountered. I have 3c/4a hair and my sister has 3a/3b hair. We both agreed that this conditioner melted our tangles away, and has awesome slip as a rinse off conditioner. A little goes a very long way. ( I used just a nickel size amount for hair length a little above my shoulders.) Apparently this is also apt as a deep conditioner and a leave in conditioner. I would encourage anyone to buy the liter, just to save money when you come running back for more! You won't be discouraged. Replacing my Tresemme Naturals.
I love this stuff. It's nice and thick. It conditions my 3b hair nicely without loosing any body in my hair. I've used this and the Elucence Shampoo for about 8-10 years now. I've tried others but keep coming back to my Elucence.
This was excellent at rinsing out my henna gloss treatment. It foamed so I only had to do like three washes and all the henna was out. I won't repurchase because trader Joe's nourish spa conditioner does the same thing for $3. But it is a good co-wash conditioner.
I loved using this product, it has a lot of slip and left my hair feeling soft and moisturized.
For me, this relatively affordable conditioner with such excellent reviews was too good to be true. Bought several times because I wanted to like it. I can't say that this conditioner negatively affected the health or appearance of my hair, or else I wouldn't have gotten thru two full bottles. However, it didn't produce any noticeable positive effect either. I just really hated the feel of this conditioner. Felt really drying and had virtually no slip for me. Literally felt like my hair was more knotted with conditioner than before. I finally sprang for the more expensive but equally well reviewed mop top and am so glad I did. Although more than twice the price it works more than twice as well for my hair.
This stuff does it. I wasn't sold at first because I used it as a conditioner and put a KBB leave-in on after. Personally, this worked better AS the leave-in than it did as a cowash conditioner. After 4 or 5 days using this as a leave-in—no joke—the hair compliments were off the charts. It was almost bizarre because you had to wonder what you looked like before! Ha! Anyway, highly recommended. Give it a couple days to take its effect.
I am transitioning out of a texlax and the hair that's growing in looks to be 4b/4c. I heard many great reviews on this conditioner and I agree with them for the most part. It is very creamy and feels VERY nice going on. It makes detangling very easy. After rinsing it out it did leave my hair feeling stronger but also hard/straw like. Maybe I'm protein sensitive? I do give it 4 stars because I was being very lazy and didn't moisturize my hair after cowashing with it for about 3 days...but every time I touched my hair it felt SUPER SOFT! Still undecided whether I'll repurchase. I've used it twice now
This conditioner has pros and cons. Pros are that it slightly foams which is good for co-washing, the smell is good, it has good ingredients, and is relatively cheaper than most conditioners out there, and it spreads super easily so i barely need a lot to really saturate my hair. Cons are that it did not moisturize my low porosity hair and did nothing else for it. it is really good for detangling,
while I was transitioning, this conditioner was my saviour. the scent isn't distracting, it had a nice amount of slip, and left my hair so soft & shiny every time.
My hair type is 2B and very long and thick and I recently decided to completely embrace my waves and drop all my straight-hair routines, like dry brushing, etc. This means I need to comb my hair with a wide-tooth comb every day when I shower. This conditioner is perfect to use for this. I use about a quarter size and apply to the lower third of my hair, leave in for a few minutes, work the comb gently through my hair, and rinse well with ice cold water. This conditioner combines the great moisturizing power of a heavy conditioner, but is light enough that I can use it every day without it weighing my hair down. Definitely recommended for wavies!
Love this leave-in! I have used it in two different ways. As a conditioner in the shower, which left my hair very soft. Had great slip too!. I also used it is as a leave - in when my hair needs extra TLC. This helped my hair stay manageable for a few days. It has also worked well as a "pick me up" for second day hair. I placed some in a spray bottle mixed with water and used this to refresh my curls on the next day. Worked very well!! Don't use too much though or it can leave a greasy feeling. But that's probably true with all products.
Maybe I was expecting too much based on the reviews from this conditioner. It wasn't moisturizing enough nor did it provide enough slip. I now use this conditioner for pre poo treatments and henna gloss treatments. Occasionally I may use it as a leave in conditioner but that's only if nothing else is in the bathroom to use as a leave in with me at the time. The conditioner works great for those purposes, so I gave it 3 stars. Also it contains great ingredients. I was almost tempted to repurchase it because it works so well with my pre poo and henna gloss treatments. But I will not be repurchasing.
I brought this based on the awesome reviews. This conditioner felt like it stripped everything out of my hair. I pre-pooed all night with DBPC and coconut oil. When I rinsed my hair it felt lovely until I put this conditioner on and rinsed. It almost felt like I clarified my hair. I brought the liter. I'm really smh at myself. Lol. That was a very dumb move. I guess I might can use it for co-washing out my henna treatments. I can't let it go to waste and collect dust. Lol. Def won't repurchase.
Unfortunately, I just did not have any luck with this product. It did not moisturize my hair at all, and provided no slip. My 3c hair felt dry and straw-like after using this product.
This is the best thing I have EVER!!! used. It works well with any product. Just ordered a second one. This one is a keeper.
By far one of the best conditioners I've ever used. It's not harsh and doesn't leave a greasy residue and it just leaves your hair feeling really naturally moisturized. Highly recommend. .
I really, really like this conditioner. My hair felt really soft and moisturized and was that way for several days...that's saying something from someone who's hair is always thirsty. I used this after As I Am co-wash as a regular conditioner, and then I did use a little as a leave in also. Have already ordered a second bottle, and this time I will get the shampoo to try as well.
I just made a review for the Curl Junkie smoothing leave in. After I posted I kept thinking about how much moisture my hair had when i was doing my twists and that I didn't have to rewet it NOT ONCE. My entire head stayed wet while i was doing my twists. Then I remembered that i used THIS as my conditioner. Now it makes sense. I really believe this is what caused my hair to have so much moisture to begin with. The CJ leave in was a bonus, it was creamy and had moisture too. I put this conditioner on and sat under the dryer for about 20-30 minutes. I have been wanting to try this for awhile. I'm mad at myself for waiting so long. As i previously posted, I am a true product junkie. As for conditioners, I have at least 15 bottles in my closet. Some i use sometimes some i like more than others. This one I will be using consistently.
Elucence MBC is my holy grail! I have fine, long, 2b/c-3a hair and the protein this conditioner has gives me the extra oomph my curls need. It's super moisturizing but doesn't weigh my hair down at all, and that's a big problem I've always running into. It has a strong scent, but once you get past that, it does wonders for your hair. It has great slip too, so detangling is a breeze. The price is phenomenal as well! I got mine for $6 with a Curlmart coupon. I suggest this to anyone that has protein-loving hair and needs a good rinse out conditioner. :-)
I am reviewing as a Type 2c (some 2b) with fine, thinning, healthy hair that is totally natural, having had no coloring, straightening chemicals, or hot tools used on it. I purchased this conditioner in the hopes that it would moisturize without weighing down my hair. At the same time, I purchased the Volume Clarifying Shampoo, and have so far only used them in combination with each other. After using them several times now, I am ready to report that I am happy with my purchase. My hair is shiny, with bounce and swing, and I have not been able to detect a relaxing of my curls, which form very naturally in their round ringlets without any stiffness or stickiness. Meanwhile, I have as much body as I think it's possible for my few hairs to have! I should add that I use softened water and added a tiny bit of Curl Junkie Coffee Coco Curl Creme Lite as my only styling product. Being winter in Indiana now, the humidity is very low, so it will be interesting to see how these products perform during the high-humidity summer. Before this, I was not using any moisturizer (just shampoo and CJCCCCL), because my past experience has been that moisturizers weigh down and straighten my hair, but this combination does not do that, and now my hair looks shinier and healthier. I can't speak much to its ability to detangle or soften, because my hair is always soft anyway and tangling is not a problem either (I don't have many hairs to get tangled up with each other!), although I notice that my hair is very slick when wet now.
THE BEST leave in conditioner that I have ever used! It lasts a very long time( great for someone on a budget) and smells very good. :)
Great conditioner! I use this after using the moisture benefit shampoo & it leaves my hair manageable & soft after I rinse it out.
The best leave-in conditioner for my curls. I tried other conditioners but nothing works like Elucence.
I love this product in combination with Kinky Curly Knot Today as a detangler. KCKT by itself does not leave my hair moisturized, but defines much better than Elucence which is why I use both together. Definitely a staple, especially for the price. Not giving 5 stars because the semll is soooooooooo freakin strong. Like someone broke into a hair salon and emptied all the products on the floor. Wahhhh
It was definitely not a deep conditioner. Didn't penetrate very well at all. I had to add honey and olive oil to it for it to work. However; because I am able to use it as a leave-in is the reason I give it 1 star. I don't see what all the rave is concerning this brand.
Ordered this to try based on the reviews and the awesome price. It was a great purchase! I always worry about product scents when I buy things online, but the smell to this is pretty nice .It's kinda sweet and fruity, and doesn't linger in your hair after. I use it as a regular conditioner, to detangle, and as a leave-in. It works great as all three, and detangles especially well on my hair. I have super super thick 2c hair, with like a 3a or 3b underlayer. I will probably buy the biggest size next time! But seriously try this if you are looking for an inexpensive moisturizing/ good detangling conditioner.
Love this!! Great as a leave in. Very moisturizing and light. Hair feels soft and detangled. No complaints except that it goes fast! Need the big bottle.
I like how it detangles my hair pretty well and soaks up the moisture in my hair like it's supposed to. I section my hair into four but i tend to put a lot more conditioner in the back more than i do in the front sections. Although it gets the job done, roughly around 15-20 minutes of detangling, i feel like the consistency is too light. It definitely leaves my hair touchably soft after i let it soak in my hair for 5 minutes and after my hair dries. It's a pretty good leave-in conditioner.
I really like this product, its light, seeps into the curls. I can feel and see that my curls are getting moisturized. The definition is great! I use it as a leave-in conditioner. A little from this bottle definitely goes a long way.
My hair loves, loves, loves this conditioner! Great for co-washing my 3b/c hair. Excellent slip and moisturizing. I leave a little bit on as a leave-in. I bought the liter and the pump to use directly from the shelf in my shower. Agree with the other reviewers that it has a "interesting" smell but not offensive at all. Definitely on my HG list permanently!
you can use this for everything and is sooo cheap! slip is amazing, smell not so much, ingredients not too bad, but is a good one for cowashing!!!
I use it as a leave-in conditioner. My hair feels super soft and it have a nice smell. My hair never feels dry and it looks much healthier. Has a little bit of a weird smell but nothing offensive. Great product!
This is a great conditioner that leaves your hair soft and moisturized. I add castor and sweet almond oil to it and use it as a deep conditioning treatment. I am sure this would make a great leave-in. I am about 10 weeks post relaxer and using this enables me to soften new growth easily. I absolutely love the fact that the ingredients in this conditioner (high on the list) all promote hair growth. I have heard great things about this brand and plan on using it for a while. If I could change anything about it, I would want it to be more thicker. I will disregard the consistency of this product since it has great ingredients and serves its purpose. I purchased the 10 oz bottle to start off but since I plan on making this a staple of mine, I will be purchasing the liter to make sure I will not run out. I failed to mention -the price is GREAT for the 10 oz and the liter!!!!
This has a great slip!!!!!! I have 3b,c/4a hair and i wouldnt say it is the most mosturizing conditioner. The slip is amazing for my knots. I am buying this again.
great price for a great product nice faint smell so it does not combat the smells of my other leave ins and yes i use this as a leave in because it does not perform to well as a conditioner or a deep conditioner but the best hair pick-me-up as a leave in. you have to TRY IT!
My daughter has 3b hair with sections of 3c at the temples. We use this to co-wash and as a leave-in (sealed with Miss Jessie's Jelly Soft Curls) to style, and it keeps her hair well defined, tangle-free, and glossy. Beautiful product, and you can't beat it at the liter price. Even with daily use, this container will last us several months, and we'll definitely be buying it again and again.
Perfect conditioner. Great slip. Very moisturizing. Great Price and a little goes a long way.
This product was used along with the Eluence DC. I love the price and smell. But I have nothing to compare this product. The product is almost gone and my hair was hydrated!
For the price I really like this product. I have a lot of thick long hair and a lot of it (2C) and it takes a lot of conditioner. My hair looks much healthier.
I have been transitioning to my natural hair since January. As a result, I've been experimenting with different products, particularly conditioners. When I read the reviews of Elucence, I decided to give it a "go" after using Deva's One Conditioner exclusively for months. I love this product. I co-wash with "One", condition with Elucence, and do a partial rinse. My hair feels light and has the slip I need to proceed with my styling gel. Air drying time is reduced and the result, soft, shiny, moisturized hair. LOVE Elucence Conditioner.
I'm a first time user. I bought this product based on product reviews I read. I like this conditioner but I wish it was a bit better a detangling. I use it as a leave in conditioner and I am satisfied. I'm not sure that I will repurchase again.
Have been using this conditioner for years and it provided great moisture and slip for detangling.
Oh My Goodness, this conditioner is the best I've EVER experienced in my life! I can honestly say that (as long as this formula stays as is) I will always use this AMAZING conditioner for my hair. I use mine as a leave in...I simply co wash with a cheepy cond (herbal essence hello hydration, usually) and I apply this cond as my leave in, then apply a coconut and olive oil (both oils organic) to seal my strands, and thats it! My hair stays moisturized and lovely for 3 to 4 days without needing anything more than an occasional s curl spritz and reseal with oils on day 4, and 5; I wash my hair on day 6. This conditioner has transformed my hair from brittle and dry to well hydrated, managable, moist curls. Although a little on the expensive side, I've invested in the liter sizes for my hair. The liter size last me a little over a month; I am generous with this conditioner when applying to my hair. I am 3c/4a hair type....hair is super thick and very dry....I relax my hair 4 times a year
All I could say is "Oh wow!" as I combed my hair with this conditioner. You only need a small amount and the slip is amazing. I think I found my HG!
My hair loves this conditioner. I follow the Teri LaFlesh method of using conditioner to clump and set my kinky coily hair. I use it after my shower while my hair is soaking wet, and when my hair drys its soft and curly no muss or fuss with minimal product. I will definitely purchase this again.
I was skeptical about this product, like all others I've used in the past but boy was I wrong. I have 3A hair. This product is GREAT! I didn't brush or comb my hair before jumping in the shower so needless to say it was all curly and tangled up. I put this conditioner in and it was an instant wave of smooth silk just washing over my scalp! Only a minute in and it creates miracles, and what I found really impressive is I use the no shampoo method, and I felt like my scalp was truly clean. I would recommend this product to anyone with curly hair, completely worth every single dime!
Where has this conditioner been all my life. Best thing out that I ever tried moisturize and detangles great paired with the shampoo you have to add the two into your hair routine.
I've been using Elucence Moisture Balance Shampoo for a while now, and only just started pairing the conditioner with my regime. I can't believe I waited so long! The 2 of these products together are absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this conditioner! It works great as a leave-in as well.
Very moisturizing. I noticed that it gave me great slip-right away. I really like this product. It is now a staple product for me.
This is a great conditioner! It has great slip and I did not need to put on half of the bottle for it to work. My hair was moisturized and I had defined curls afterward. I will definitely but this again!
I like the price of this, and the smell. It does a good job of moisturizing, but I feel it makes my hair feel greasy, even after rinsing out. I've tried is as a RO, LI, DT. Will not repurchase.
This product does have the slip that it's description promises, but after rinsing out, my hair didn't feel that well moisturized and didn't seem to style as well. I got finer spiral curls instead of good clumping.
I got it yesterday. Let me warn you, A LITTLE goes a LONG way! I have high density, low porosity hair. I used it as a leave-in. The conditioner elongated my curls, softer, healthier look. I am very pleased will definitely repurchase. I am going to try the shampoo as well.
I was so excited to get this in the mail because I needed a really good leave-in. This product does great with my hair, I use it everyday to re-twist my hair at night because my hair is extremely dry, and it leaves my hair very soft. I will be buying this product again!
My hair has never looked this good in my life; I thought that it'd be frizzy and rough forever! I made an account just to write this review. I've used a ton of no-poo/organic shampoo and conditioners, but after Elucence I'm never going to use anything else ever again. I use the Elucence moisture acidifying shampoo (because I have hard water) and then I use this as a leave-in. That's all. I didn't even know my hair was naturally this spirally!
This is my first real conditioner that my hair loves I use as a leave in also,will stay with this product because it works.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. It works great as a leave-in conditioner. BCed 2 weeks ago so wash 'n goes have been my staple and this stuff is perfect for that kind of moisture. The fact that it's huge and affordable has also gone a long way in its favour. I sense a repurchase in the future.
I love this conditioner! I've used it as a daily, deep and as a leave-in. This works so well and is dependable with each new bottle. I've also shared it with a few curly friends and they were able to notice shinier, smoother, moisturized curls with one use. The shampoo...the moisture benefits is also really good, too. The price is amazing for a liter compared to so many other brands. I've ordered a few liters of both so that I'll have back ups and won't run out and also to share with friends! Love it!
If you've read ANY of my recent reviews, you know of my deep frustration over being forced to relinquish my HG 'poo and condish for a different brand more suited to the desert climate my 2C/3A-B tendrils have been subjected to since moving to Nevada from Florida just under a year and a half ago (see other reviews for those brands). It has been a major undertaking with the copious amount of research I conducted just to find products that would not further deplete the much-needed moisture from my already thirsty mane. Enter Elucence. Imagine my surprise when I discovered a brand that not only came with rave reviews, but its price tag most certainly did NOT match the quality it was purported to possess. It is even named appropriately: MOISTURE BALANCING. It is neither too heavy nor too light...it is just right to handle my dehydrated locks in this moisture deficient place and comes with an ever-so-subtle peachy scent that's barely noticeable after the hair is dry. I liked both this Moisturizing Conditioner and two of the shampoos (see reviews) so much, I purchased liter-sized bottles after the smaller ones ran out.
I give this product 5 stars because it made my 3c 3b hair soft and moisturized. I've always had ricy frizzy crazy curls bit now I have a great curl pattern and it alot more flatter. I'm really lovinh my hair and this conditioner is my new staple. Please you guys try it. Next time I will buy the liter.
Smell - GREAT Consistency - Creamy(typical conditioner consistency) Performance - Great! great slip! and my hair felt moisturize. This is great rinse out conditioner and I would repurchase again.
high density, low porosity, long length, combination types 3a,3b I could not believe how good my hair looked after this conditioner. Since my scalp is prone to getting oily and having dandruff, I have to avoid putting it on my scalp so it won't build up. Worked wonderfully with the elucence clarifying shampoo.
I just bought the shampoo and conditioner yesterday. Of course I havent had the chance to use the shampoo yet but so far I'm really liking the conditioner. I used it as a leave-in and I have to say out of the many products I've tried this is the first that didn't leave an extremely greasy feeling. I have 4a hair and it left it feeling soft and moisturized. I only gave it 4 stars because I haven't had the chance to really use it. If it continues like this, it will definitely become my staple. I say its a must try!
The only reason this is getting 4 instead of 5 curls is because I WISH it smelled like the Moisture Benefits Shampoo. Other than that small drawback (because it does smell good in its own right, just not as good as the luscious shampoo), this conditioner is everything a curly girl could need: enough slip for detangling (even on dry hair), and divinely moisturizing without leaving a residue or weighing curls down.
I give it 4.5 Stars! I have 3C - 4B combo hair and I really like this conditioner as a leave-in/ styler for my wash-in-go's. It's light, moisturizing and doesn't leave a chalky film feeling or hard cast like other conditioners. It has just enough casting qualities to hold, prevent frizz and still allow movement. I love that it doesn't leave a dull film, allowing for a natural sheen. No jericurl look here. My only complaint is the fragrance, which personally I'm not a fan of but to each her own. The fragrance reminds me of pink oil moisturizer... yuck. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. Not sure the smell will make me a repeat buyer; however I still recommend it.
4a hair type- I really like this conditioner. It works very well with the Elucence acidifying shampoo. I also use it alone for cowashing as well and occasionally as a leave-in. Great product! Highly recommended!
I use this inconjunction with the moisturizing shampoo and it works great. I use this conditioner not only as a after-shampoo conditioner but I also use it as a leave in. It is great for detangling also.
i just started using this but i am very happy with this as a conditioner/leave-in to help combat frizzies in south floridian climate
Great as a leave in. Lots of slip. Light scent. Good detangler, no white residue. Compatible with KCCC & not today leave in.
Love this product!! So moisturizing, seeing that I always had straw-like dry hair that's saying a lot!! Definitely gonna stock up on it for a long time :) Also love the faint smell!
This made my hair super soft and moisturized, and it definitely cut down on frizz. It also has great slip for detangling. Love it!
I used to use the Aubrey Organics conditioner, but I always felt like my really find 3c hair didn't detangle enough. I need something with conditioning power and lots of slip, otherwise I end up with really bad breakage. This conditioner actually works really well. It doesn't feel like its doing the job, but once I out of the shower, I am super happy with the results. I do follow this with a leave in conditioner.
I use this as my leave in conditioner and it is fabulous!!! I wasn't sure about the aroma (which is settle), but I have decided that it is fine, just not as delicious as Karen's Body Beautiful. I am Syrian and Colombian, so I have thick curly hair. My hair is so soft, moisturized and happy without feeling weighed down. I put a couple drops of pure argan oil to this product and then finish with AG Recoil. Perfect hair every time. LOVE the clean ingredients. Will be a staple in my routine.
Love this stuff. Great slip, smell, and price. This is the only conditioner I use besides Aussie Moist
I Looove this. It gave me tons of moisture and g reat slip.. which has been surprising hard for me to find for my 3c curls I will be repurchasing.
I liked this product but not sure that I will make it one of my staples. Pros: Great as a leave-in condition - not too heavy, great price, pleasant fragrance Cons: Not as much slip as other products I've used, needed to use a lot to de-tangle my hair Although it's back to the drawing board for me, I won't completely dismiss this product. ;-)
I LOVE this conditioner!!! It is such a great moisturizer and made my hair feel great. It also says it can be used as a leave in treatment, which seems like would work well. This added so much shine to my hair and just made it look and feel great!
Love Love this conditioner! I honestly just use this to enhance my curl and it does just that, PLUS super mositurize! Both products (Shampoo and conditioner) have become staple for me.
I was extremely disappointed by this product. I co-wash daily, and for that I really want a single conditioner which can help cleanse my scalp, but also keep my hair moisturized. This felt more drying even than the sulfate-free shampoos I use weekly. I had to follow up with another conditioner for enough moisture, and my hair still felt dryer than usual afterward. I hate to just throw out products, but this one might have to go. I would have given it one star, but I'll bump it up to two for the great price. At least if I throw this out, I'm only wasting $8 instead of $20.
I use this as a rinse-out conditioner and I love it! Not too heavy, not too light. It's definitely one of the better ones that I've tried. Very moisturizing.
This leave in is too light for my thick hair. The true test for me is if it smoothes out my super curly roots and saturates my hair without having to use a lot of product. This was ok but I have used better leave ins that give me the results I am looking for.
As a regular conditioner, I did not like this product all that much. I bought it when I was relaxed and was looking for a more natural alternative to alot of the conditioners that was readily available for relaxed hair. After I went natural and tossed most of my products for relaxed hair, I decided to keep this conditioner because of the ingredients. It was not all that great as a leave in, which is how I was originally using it because it is very light. I found it to leave somewhat of a waxy residue on my hair if I used more than a tiny dollop as a leave in. Then I tried to use it as a regular conditioner, and I was still not impresswed. Nothing super moisturizing or conditioning about this conditioner. My hair doesn't tangle that much and it is generally not hard for me to de-tangle my hair, so it is not really necessary for me to have a detangling conditioner. As a deep conditioner, this did not really deep condition my hair. This was the best for me a co-wash conditioner. I don't co-wash that frequently, I mostly shampoo with a sulfate free shampoo. When I did use this as a co-wash, I felt like the foaming action was really getting my hair clean without stripping my hair of any moisture. This works best for me as a co-wash conditioner and I would re-purchase this item again only to use as a co-wash. The price point on this conditioner is great, comparing it to most other conditioners available from curlmart, so it gains points on that.
I have been using this condtioner for almost a year. I love it. My hair feels so soft after I put this in my hair. Also after I wash it out detangling is a breeze. I use this product once a week and it has never done me wrong. I am in love with this conditioner and the moisture balance shampoo. This is affordable and one of the best purchases that I have ever made for my hair. WONDERFUL PRODUCT!!!!!
I love this conditioner. I have 4a hair and I used it as a co-wash and it made detangling a breeze. I was going to by the 10oz but I'm so glade I went with the 1 liter. I will be repurchasing.
Sometimes this works for me and sometimes it doesn't. And when it doesn't, it really doesn't--tangles everywhere, and my hair looks dry when it's wet. I've tried it as both a rinse out and as a leave-in and it's just not consistent enough to repurchase. Shame though, since the price is right.
LOVE this product. I have 3B curls, and they responded so well to it as a rinse out conditioner as well as a leave-in. I have yet to try it as a deep treatment, but I have no doubt that it will do wonders! Great slip, detangled like magic, left my curls light, soft, and bouncy. Couldn't ask for more :)
Just the best for me. I have just past shoulder length 3a hair, and have used this for the past 8 years. Every time I stray I end up coming back to it. I use it to CO wash, condition, and as a leave-in. I wouldn't say it's deep conditioner, but a great daily.
3b, very high density and very low porosity hair; this product detangles but I saw no improvement with moisture. I bought the liter bottle, used over half of it and my hair was still dry as hay. My hair rarely responds though to even the most intensive salon dry hair treatments, so I can't speak for every 3b but if your hair is as dry and thick as mine, it is unlikely this product will be strong enough to help.
4c hair! I have EXTREMELY tight beautifully nappy hair (that somehow makes cute small slinky type curls when sopping wet-but I digress). I used this as a co-wash and was not extremely impressed. I don't care too much about slip if the co-wash will add a little moisture or begin to soften my hair. When I put it on, it didn't have very much slip but did not add or detract from me being able to detangle my hair. I should note that prior to co-washing or pooing I always do an oil tx with sweet almond or grapeseed oil, 2 - 3 tbsp honey, 3 drops ylang ylang, 3 drops peppermint, ~1 tsp vitamin E, coconut oil and a few squirts shea moisture conditioner, which I leave in for 20 - 30 min. with heat under a shower cap then rinse out. So my hair is already soft prior to shampooing or co-washing. This product used as a co-wash didn't add anything to that softness, when I rinsed it out it actually took away some of the softness that the oil tx left behind but I feel as though since i'm using this to mildly cleanse my hair..this was ok. This product wasn't great but reading others reviews maybe I will try to use as a leave in, it looks like the same consistency as my favorite Giovanni leave in. I'll come back and report once I try this as a leave in. Also on a separate note I purchased the extended moisture elucence conditioner for a protein tx. HORRIBLE it was less viscous than this product. I used it with heat for ~ 30 min. and when I washed it out my hair and ends were extremely dry. I think it was too much protein for my hair or that my hair reacted badly with the specific protein used in it. So if /when you are doing protein tx pay attention to the type of protein in the conditioner, (e.g., milk protein, hydrolyzed protein, keratin, etc) so that you can start to figure out how your hair responds since many conditioners have proteins that aren't readily recognizable.
This has been one of the best conditioners that I have ever used! My hair is so soft and manageable and I have really kinky hair! This is a great product to use as a leave-in, especially if you are transitioning your hair like I am.
I have 3c/4a hair and this conditioner is amazing! I live in Chicago so I have to have a conditioner sans the glycerin if I wanna avoid frizz city. So Elucence has proven to be a wonderful replacement for my winter time conditioner Kinky Curly KT. It detangles wonderfully, it's a great co-wash product (to stretch out the time btw shampooing), and provides excellent moisture as a leave-in. I'm almost done with my first 10oz bottle and I just ordered the 1 liter bottle to get me through the rest of summer. Thank you CurlMart for having coupon codes for this as well! ;o)
Love, love, love, love it!!! Made my 4B hair feel soo soft and the detangling power is great! Hate that I had to wait nearly a week to get it, but it was well worth the wait. I will buy it in a larger size next time. I am truly happy!
This product is great! I use it as a leave in underneath Eco Styler Gel. It is very moisturizing. The best conditioner that I have ever used!
Hands down, the BEST leave-in conditioner I've EVER used for my hair. EVER. EVER! Not a good rinse out conditioner, but a good leave-in. =)
I abosolutely love the softness this conditioner gives my 3c/4a hair! I mixed it with some castor oil and use it as a leave-in and the results are fantastic. I would give this 4.5 curls for its price, ingredients, fragrance and results. I'm not saying it will change your life but it has helped mine.
I really love this product! It fits very naturally with my hair! You can use it as a daily moisturizer, but i use it every other day. It makes your hair soft and give it the moisture it needs! Also it's worth the $8.00! The downside is that it's only sold online but it's worth the wait because this product made my hair more natural and made it grow more thicker! Overall, 2 thumbs up and get this product!
wonderful list of ingredients but it wasn't very moisturizing for my hair as a conditioner. I mostly use this product as a leave in. Suave coconut conditioner and giovanni smooth as silk conditioner worked better for my hair than this product.
This is without a doubt my favorite conditioner. The ONLY reason I can not give it 5 curls is because I have to order it online. Otherwise it is a 5 curl product. This is a protein containing conditioner, so those that are protein sensitive should use caution. For me, it contains JUST the right amount of protien and moisturizers and it detangles like a dream. I've used it as a cowash, a rinse out conditioner, a leave in, and as a deep conditioner (with oils and honey) and each way that I've used it I have been amazed at results. I always try to keep a liter in my bathroom because when my hair is extra tangly or just not acting right, I can reach for this and know that my hair will respond.
This is my staple co-wash/detangler! I buy it by the liter. This is the only product that really detangles my hair consistently, no matter what I do to it. Coils, coil outs, twists, twist-out, week-2 week old hair without manipulation, henna, etc. I get great results each time.
The conditioner was blah. It didn't provide enough slip for my hair, and was only moderately moisturizing. However, it does smell good.
Several months ago I decided to give this product a try after all the hype about it. Unfortunately my hair reacted badly to this product. I used it as a rinse out and as a leave in and it left my hair feeling hard and very dry and like it would crumble at the slightest touch. It's possible that it could be the type of protein that's used in this product. I use other products with protein in them and don't have a problem with them.
All I can say is OMG! What an awesome product, the conditioner is natural and feels luxurious on, but also leaves my hair feeling moisutrized and easier to manage. I am a transitioning 4a/b and have experienced hair loss when after poo and co, but this greatly reduced the shredding post wash. I recommend the shampoo and condish for anyone transitioning and worried about hair loss. Also the condish can be used as a leave in which also works wonders in this way.
3a,b,c and 2c at the nape. I use this product to cowash and I am pleased and impressed. My curls are soft and responsive to other products after this cowashing. Curly Suzy recommended Eluence...thank you!
Love this conditioner... it is moisturizing and calming to my hair, leaves it smooth and soft. It dries and it controls the frizz, continues to be soft and smooth.. it is a new part of my HG. Excellent product! :)
THE BOMB!!!! This has become part of my holy grail... I use ELUCENCE to detangle, deep condish, and as leave-in. There is absolutely no other conditioner that compares for me.
My HG for rinseouts thus far as it has excellent slip and detangles well. It's so moisturizing that I don't need an LI after! Good stuff!
I love this conditioner! It makes my hair feel like butter. I use it as a DC, rinse out and leave-in (most often leave-in). It's really great.
wow! After all the positive reviews, I really was looking forward to trying this conditioner,however it left my hair a tangled mess, i was afraid i would not have hair by the time i finished combing the conditioner through my wet hair. i have 3b/4a hair type. my hair was soft after it dried, and the smell was pleasant (that's why two curls) I think the protein ingredient is the reason for my tangles. For at the fear of being bald, i don't think i'll be repurchasing.
This product is coming close in my quest for a good conditioner. It is a little light for me, but still moisturizes and detangles admirably and doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or itchy like the more intense ones I have tried. Have not tried it as a leave-in yet, but love the idea.
Great detangler, VERYYY moisturizing made my hair of mixed textures 4b 4a & 3c very soft. This conditioner is definitely a keeper and next time Im buying the larger size!
I adore this conditioner. It leaves me hair silky smooth, helps it lay flatter, smells great, and the price is pretty nice. Will definitely stock up on this
This conditioner is awesome! I use it as a rinse out and a leave in and it's great! It's not too heavy/light, just right. Great product and great price.
This conditioner works great as a leave-in. It keeps my porous 3c curls moisturized all day. It's my favorite.
This conditioner works great as a leave-in. It keeps my porous 3c curls moisturized all day. it's my favorite.
I love this conditioner...great slip and leaves my hair feeling soft all day. What's great is that I can use it as a leave-in conditioner as well. I'm going to order the liter size next time!
Great conditioner! Used as a leave in for my daughters 3a/bish hair. But I find that the cheapie V05 works just as excellent on her fine tresses.
I really enjoyed the slathering on of this one. It has this great, creamy quality. Nice smell, too.
Lots and lots of rich conditioning and detangling going on here. The liter size is the way to buy this one. Really a fantastic conditioner.
Great conditioner! However, I wish it were less than 8 bucks though. In the long run, I'm better off purchasing trader joes nourish line....
If it weren't for the peach extract making me itch & the price, this would get 5 curls. It's one of the best leave-in/rinse-out conditioners I've tried.
this has been my staple product for at least 3 yrs now. i buy it by the liter! its so rich and moisturizing, plus it can be used in many different ways. my 3c hair loves it, my SO is a 2a/b and his hair loves it and even my mom who has relaxed hair uses it.
Wonderfully remarkable product! Detangled and softened my 4A curls. Right now, I'm doing the CG thing, but I still miss my Elucence conditioner. If I ever cheat, this is what I will cheat with!
I had not so great results (nice slip but dried w/o shine and drying to my hair) with the litre size I bought years ago but was reluctant to swap it away. I've recently pulled it out to try it as a leave-in. By itself and gel yeielded not so greta results but when I paired it up with Aveda's Universal Styling cream = Wow!! I got coily defintion in the perpetually fuzzy areas near my ears and weight that I need. I'll use this as a flex cheaper option to Aveda's Be Curly.
THANK GOODNESS! This is definately what my hair has been searching for! Great moisture and my hair loves it. The smell is okay (the shampoo is YUMMY!), and the detangling is pretty good too. I love that I can use it as a leave in. It makes a lot of room on my shelf because all I need is this, some gel, and the shampoo. This conditioner is ALL THAT!
I was so excited to try this product after hearing all the hype but this did absolutely nothing for my hair...It smells good and that's about it.
4B: This is the best shampoo/conditioner combo ever. When i first went natural over a year ago I thought my hair would never be soft and manageable. Thank goodness I was sooo wrong.
My hair is 2b to 3b depending on humidity in the air. I wanted to love this product from the reviews it recieved. It made my hair soft and full but full of frizz. When reading reviews and buying products; buy the small size to see if it works for you.
This is a good conditioner to use. It detangled well and the moisturizing was OK. Not overly great, but not bad either. It does have good ingredients in it and I would purchase it again.Elucence makes good quality hair care products at a very reasonable price.
I used to love this stuff, but I feel like John Masters Organics Citrus and Neroli detangler is better for my hair. It leaves my hair a lot softer than this. I have 3c hair.
I expected this product to be better than sliced bread the way people are talking about it and it's ranking on the "Top Sellers" in the CurlMart, but it's just ALRIGHT. The price tag was attractive compared to other conditioners on here, but that's about it. Moisture was ehh, slip was ehh, and the smell was...smelled like cough syrup.
I don't know whats wrong with me, but my 3a hair doesn't seem to like any of the best-sellers/reviewers. I didn't really like the smell to start off, and had to use loads to feel like it was doing anything for moisture. It worked better as a leave in conditioner, but still left my hair dry and barely less tangled.
The best condioner I have used in a really long time, though it was not amazing. However, I was completely impressed with how soft and moisturized my curls felt. Detangling not superb, but did a decent job on my thick 3c curls. Overall, a pretty nice conditioner. Will use again in the future.
Update: Initially great. Continued use caused my protein sensitive hair to be dry and brittle. No slip or moisture as a leave-in or co-wash/DT. I'm so disappointed w/all the raves about this one.
This is a great leave-in conditioner for me. It wasn't too moisturizing as a co-wash, DT conditioner, though. My hair was soft and shiny. Loved the peachy smell! I was able to layer stylers over it. It's a staple for me!
I have fine, VERY curly mixed-race hair, and it's hard to find a conditioner that gives enough moisture, detangles, and doesn't build up. This one is definitely the best of the many, many conditioners I've tried! Good slip, great moisture, nice smell, and no silicone. I can leave a lot in my hair after rinsing without any nasty buildup, and it complements my other products.
I was worried because it seemed so thin, but this was great, lots of moisture and instant detangling. Works great as a leave-in too. Yummy, light scent.
I really love the ingredients in this product.It all sounds so nourishing. However, the detangling properties are pretty modest. It works like every other conditioner;however, I have experienced better conditioners which give my hair more slip after usage.
This is one of the best conditioners -- great slip, detangles well and you don't need a lot. Nice price tag for such a great product! Thanks NC.com...I wouldn't have known about this product without you!
Like I said with the poo, I sent away for this product based on the favorable reviews and you guys didn't steer me wrong. I've used these products 3 times now and I'm noticing FAR LESS STRAW and more SOFT CURL formation. It's nice to have something that adds moisture without adding a thick coat of goo!
This conditioner is awesome! Just after 2 uses, my hair softer! With honey, its even better!
Fabulous product. Keeps the hair moisturized and untangled. I use it everday as a leave in. Makes the hair very soft.
This conditioner is my absolute favorite conditioner ever. It smells like heaven, and it leaves my hair more fantastically soft and moisturized than any other conditioner I've used. It leaves my hair in the best shape, and doesn't over-condition. Perfect as a leave in, too. I'll never be without this in my shower!
I am very close to declaring this a HG. Very moisturizing, but not too heavy abd doesn't weigh down my fine hair. I am currently out of it and really missing it. No other conditioner works as consistently for me. My next order, I'm ordering the liter size.
the best conditioner!!! it does everything! you can use it as a detangler, leave-in, co-wash, dt...and it even cooks and cleans too! haha! but seriously, i always come back to this conditioner when my hair product experiments go awry. when i first used it, it was just average. but it took a few tries before it kicked in, then WOW!!! (it probably took a few tries at first because my hair was so dry/damaged and/or previous product buildup) definite staple!!!
Love this stuff almost as much as I do the shampoo. It makes even the back of my hair feel nice and soft which lately has not wanted to soften up for anything. Wonderful scent and also makes a great leave in.
Love it! One of my most favorite conditioners. Multi-functional: can be used as a rinse out or as a leave-in. It offers great slip and easy detangling. I also adore the crisp, clean scent!
I bought this product after reading all the great reviews about it. The first day I tried it, I just used it as a wash-out conditioner, and thought that it was ok but nothing that different than some other things I've tried in the past. I think maybe I just didn't use enough, because today I used more of it & left it on a bit longer before rinsing. Then I also mixed some of it in with my styling gel (FX Curls Up Reactivator). WOW!! HUGE difference! I had an awesome amount of curl - soft, defined, bouncy, full of volume. The best hair day I've had in a long time! I will definately buy this product again.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I use it everyday on my 3b hair as both my "washing" conditioner and as a leave-in. It smells slightly fruity and my hair is always happy after I use it..bouncy and shiny!
Love this conditioner! Gives immediate slip and moisturizes like a charm. I can just use the leave in as my styler and go. Makes my curls shiny and soft, and enhances my natural curl.
This product didn't detangle my hair very well or make it look special after it dried. While other people rave about this conditioner, to me, it seemed to be average. Go figure.
Superior detangler, smells nice, and a little goes a long way. I used about a nickel size amount for each section of my hair (4 sections). I also had significantly less shedding when I combed. Left my hair soft.
This is another of my favorite conditioners. It could be a little more detangling but it's so moisturizing and I love this as a leave-in. A great conditioner for a reasonable price.
great conditioner! i love it as a rinse-out and a leave-in, i've also added honey and oils to it for a DT, and i've even used it as a washing conditioner. only complaints are that it is not the best detangler i've ever used (devacurl one condition is better IMO) and i notice as i'm rinsing it out that it seems to lather a bit. great price too.
It's very detangling for rinse-out conditioning, but as a leave-in, my hair looks like cotton-candy. If I add honey, it looks shiny and bouncy, but to earn 4 curls from me, a product has to look great on its own.
I like it ok, but I find that my hair is happier with a conditioner that has cones. Last time I used this conditioner, it left my hair dry and straw-like. I really wanted to like it, but for me, it's just an ok conditioner.
It is a very moisturizing but not too heavy conditioner for me. I do alternate it with other conditioners. It works better for me now in the heat than in the winter.
This is the best conditioner I have ever used. Great slip, smell & also great as a leave-in. Leaves my hair feeling soft & not over-conditioned.
My HG conditionner. It has everything I need, moisture -lots of moisture!, helps with frizz, light enough so it doesn't weight down curls, smells fresh, and just feels amazing in my hair! It's the best detangler I've tried. Also a great leave in. I've tried others, but this is pretty hard to beat.
This is an average conditioner, but I guess I just had too high hopes. Seems to enhance my frizzies and not provide enough moisture. I prefer Giovanni's 50/50 moisturizer.
I love this conditioner. It is very moisturizing, but doesn't weigh my hair down. It is great as a regular conditioner and as a leave-in. It smells great, too.
Wow, this is a really great conditioner. Best I have ever used. Leaves my hair very soft and curls bouncy.
I have very dry hair that needs a thick creamy conditioner and this stuff just didn't do the job for me. It was way too light for my hair type, but detangled well and smelled good.
I read all the rave reviews about the Elucence line so I bought this shampoo, conditioner, and elixir. This is one of the best conditioners I have come across. Thanks for all the recommendations :)
This officially has become the first conditoner that I will continue to buy in bulk. It is fabulous! I used to think that a conditioner had to have at least one 'cone to be effective. Boy was I wrong. My hair feels so soft and lush after I use this. Makes doing the mod.CG a real treat. Thanks Elucence!!!
I used this conditioner for the first time w/high expectations based on raves and reviews from other girls w/my hair type and I was a little disappointed. Maybe they've had better luck than me because I didn't really notice any softness, detangling, or moisture. It's just like a regular conditioner. OR maybe I'm not getting the same great results as the girls above me due to the fact that I just started the CG routine..maybe it takes a while for things to start "working".
Excellent conditioner. I've used it as a rinse-out and leave-in and both ways are great. Moisturizing but not coating, no cones, works well for when I wear my hair straight or curly.
This is fab stuff. My dry highlighted colored hair is moisturized. Very affordable, and smells peachy.
This is my favorite conditioner. I keep trying new products, but always come back to this one because it cannot be beat. Very affordable. My comb easily glides through my hair after application. Love it!
Great conditioner that feels awesome going on. Not too heavy or too light. Hair feels soft after using it, and frizzies are tamed because of the moisturizing qualities of the conditioner.
I have been using this product for years and I always go back to it. The conditioning benefits are the best! I use it as a daily, leave in and deep conditioner.
A fantastic daily conditioner. It's rich and creamy and leaves my hair noticeably softer and shinier. It seems to be good for a lot of different curl types.
