Suffered a bad protein overload last winter. Hair like cardboard. So, in typical newbie fashion, I eliminated all products with protein from my line-up. And the pendulum swung all the way to the other extreme. A few weeks ago hair strands started breaking when I moved in bed .Weird little snapping sensation. Also had noted an increase in frizz. And yes. I do pineapple and sleep on satin. So, based on the reviews, I decided to give this a try. Have used this twice in 11 days, being careful to not double up on protein in other products. And it worked!!!! No more popping strands, reduced frizz, and my hair feels stronger. I will admit the incredible slip scared me the first time. I thought that instead of cardboard, I had melted hair this time. Silly me! Worth every penny and then some. Thank you CJ.
Love the smell. Has great slip. I left it on with heat about 20 minutes. I loved how silky my hair felt afterwards, and the shine was amazing! Also the frizz was basically gone. Even the areas that are shorter along the hairline that always frizz were in perfect place and it was still frizz free after sleeping on it overnight. This is a keeper. The reviews on this don't lie. I love it! 3c hair type.
Properties: 3B-4A mix, medium to low porosity, high density, fine, medium length Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner is a do all product. It softens my hair by packing in lightweight moisture, the proteins in it add a bit of strength that calms my frizz. The slip is fantastic, I can run my fingers through it with easy, I can detangle in half my usual time. It defines my curls and coils while adding natural shine and clumps my curls like no other and adds a lot of smoothness to them. This product has a light tropically, florally smell that isn’t overbearing or lingering. It’s very creamy and not super runny, but liquidy enough to detangle. I cannot emphasize how great this stuff is. It is incredibly moisturizing! It is so worth the price tag and I have not found anything comparable to Curl Junkie products in effectiveness. I definitely recommend this product.
Awesome conditioner has just the right amount of moisture and protein. My hair is never dry, frizzy or brittle. I use this as a rinse out and leave-in followed by curl queen gel and that combination gives me nice clumpped curls and a softness you won't believe. My hair is a mixture of 3b/c with maybe some 4a sprinkled in the mix.
Excellent conditioner it's very light but moisturizing. I used it as a leave in and my hair feels wonderful. My hair is not coated or weighed down, has plenty of shine and just looks beautiful all around.
This conditioner has an amazing slip factor. I haven't used this conditioner in over a year mainly because I thought I didn't need protein conditioner. I was wrong because my hair has been really frizzy and moisturizing conditioners wasn't helping so I decided to get this and the repair me a shot. I used this as a rinse out and the repair me as an over nighter. But what got me with this was the slip. I mean silky slip, my curl felt as if they were melting in my hands. Love it.
I love this excellent conditioner! Great slip. awesome for co-washing. I have fine hair and uneven curls, wavy in some places, getting tighter curls in other places as I grow older. I complained about the price, but other brands cost even more for 4oz less product! I won't go back. I haven't found a shampoo in this line that i really love. But I also love the "Curls in the Bottle" for my fine curls.
Despite the smell, this conditioner does what is says it does. When I first starting growing my hair out after cutting off 4 inches this was the best ever. It saved my hair.
I feel this is misnamed. It is not a strengthening conditioner, but a protein treatment. It has a pleasant smell (like baby lotion?) but is not overpowering. There is not much slip. It takes a lot of product. It left my hair a bit dry and stiff but did reduce frizz and increase shine for a couple of days. I might buy it again for occasional use, but it had too much protein and not enough moisture for regular use. It might be good for someone with a lot of damage.
This product does exactly what it says it should. The smell is sweet and pleasant, unfortunately it does not linger. While in my hair, the product feels similar to Oyin Handmade's Honey Hemp Conditioner. Afterwards, my hair feels strong and soft. This product is perfect for protein sensitive heads, quick weekly treatments, and a immediate rinse out for women on the go.
My 3b/3c (low porosity, high density, fine to medium) curls need a LOT of protein and this conditioner, along with my once a month Repair me! DT provide the perfect amount of protein & moisture for my curls! I've not had any brittle or dryness to my hair ever since I started using these products, and even my tangles are less bad than they were before!
Excellent protein conditioner. While most of my hair falls into a mix of 4b/c, most of the front of my hair is a fine 3c & 4a mix. This really helped those finer sections to regain some strength without crunching and tangling up the rest of my hair. It isn't as slippery as the curl rehab and the scent is ok, but I was looking for a light, strengthening conditioner that didn't require a second step. Definite repurchase material.
I bought this product a couple years ago and lovedddd it. My hair had never been so shiny and bouncy, before or since. It has just the right amount of protein and moisture for me to use regularly. After I ran out I continued to use the Trader Joe's nourish line, which still worked great for me and was much cheaper (at about $3 a bottle!). However, since developing an allergy to parabens I'm returning to this. It's definitely works better for me than trader joe's, but not $19-extra-per-bottle better. I'm giving it 5 stars for performance, but I still have reservations about the price!
I have 3a/3b hair which I have lightend every 8 weeks at my roots so I thought I would need some protein. However my hair felt dry and like straw after putting this in. It had very little slip and I did not like how my hair dryed afterwards (I used the same products as alwasy) and on top volume was lacking. So this is the first product of Curl Junkie which I do not like which maybe is a plus for me as I absolutely love most of the other Curl Junkie products so this will save my buying another one.
My 2b hair loves this - great slip, my hair loves the protein - the only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because it doesn't help my hair curl up, it lengthens my curls more into waves, but they are very soft and nourished waves!
Fantastic product! Exactly the moisture my hair needs. Not too thrilled with the price, but I'm willing to pay! This leaves very little build-up, and my hair has never been this shiny & hydrated.
I have been alternating the beauticurls with a Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat for moisture. I find that my fine 3a/b curls really soak in the protein of this product, but then they also need the intense moisture. (I bought this a long time ago and am forcing myself to use it up before I buy something else.) Living in the NW my whole life, i still can't get used to my hair just being permanently frizzed. This combo seems to help. Do the test to see how porous your hair is to understand how your hair accepts moisture and protein, and helps with product choices. (1 strand of hair in a cup of tepid water. Wait 2 min, If it sinks hair is porous= Easily accepts moisture and protein. If not, not porous =use extra time & heat to get moisture and protein into your hair)
One of my favorite protein rinse-out conditioners. When I use this, my hair feels sooooo silky smooth. I was wary of the glycerin, as I live in a dry climate, but I have had no issues with this product. It's pricey, but I make sure to always throw in a bottle if I am doing a Curl Junkie haul.
I don't completely understand this product. Sometimes it makes my hair super frizzy; but if I deep condish with it and use a good gel, it can leave my hair nice and thick. I think there may be better protein treatments on the market, for less money, but this one is pretty good all told. It smells TERRIBLE (awful and musky), but it doesn't linger too badly.
I have had this conditioner for about 2 weeks now. My hair is loving it. I have fine, medium to thin 3b hair. The first time I used it I was surprised when I put it in there wasn't any slip but as soon as I added water it became very slippery. This is a great conditioner and not too heavy and ends up being great for de-tangling. I detangle in the shower so it works great for me.
2c-3a Phenomenal slip, I just want to keep finder coming my hair when this is in, it's so silky. It smells heavenly as well. I love having a slippery, moisturizing conditioner with a significant amount of protein in it.
This the best conditioner! I have 3C hair that's below my shoulders and this product has excellent slip. The smell is wonderful in the shower and not overly sweet or overwhelming. You don't need a lot because when applied it spreads really well. I wish it was more affordable considering I condition my hair daily in the shower, so I always order 2 bottles keeping one in the closet. I use this and the Deva One Condition. I will continue to purchase this because while expensive my hair responds well to it and I am able to apply and detangle with my fingers. PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING THIS A BIT CHEAPER!
This product held it's on!! I love the way my hair looked silky afterwards. I let it air dry and my strands had a beautiful natural sheen to them. This is a new staple product of mine.
This left my hair so frizzy and dry and tangled. It did not coat my hair at all, it's not very moisturizing I guess if you have dry hair. After all of the positive reviews, I thought I would try it, but it was defintitely not for my 3B/3C hair. It also eliminated all of my curls and basically gave me a crazy, tangled mass of hair. I was very disappointed after reading all of the great reviews for this product!
So, I overconditioned my hair about a month after going mostly CG, and decided to try to alternate between my regular conditoner (DevaCurl One Condition) and a protein-rich one. But I do have fairly dry hair, so I still wanted something really moisturizing. After reading reviews, I decided to try this. Definitely a good call! I haven't had any further problems with overconditioning, and my hair even feels thicker and healthier, but this still moisturizes and detangles well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with fine, dry hair!
This might be the best conditioner I have ever used! It provides wonderful slip and makes detangling a breeze. Also, a little product goes a long way. I will only use this as a weekly/monthly deep treatment because it is a little pricey for me but it truly is a fantastic product. I will definitely repurchase in the future!
I bought this solely because the reviews were so good (and I love CJ Rehab). I was nervous about the protein in it, because my hair has hated protein during the winter so far, and my hair didn't like CJ Banana & Hibiscus. My hair LOVES THIS!!! This is the first product with which I've gotten clumps. I was always wishing for clumps, and nothing did that for my hair. My hair looks great with this! No frizz, which says a lot. I am loving it. You can see results even after using it as a rinse out conditioner. My other fave products typically need to stay on at least 20 minutes. So, this saves me time and treats my hair wonderfully! I only wish it had more of a scent. But that's hardly a complaint. I'd rather have minimal scent than one I dislike. CJ, thank you!!!!!!!!
The slip is unbelievable. The moisture I get on my fine hair with normal density, even after a week without any additional product, is too. I cannot believe I waited so long to try this line.
This one is has an overall five curl rating for a reason. Its an amazing conditioner. One quarter sized blob through my just shorter that APL hair of medium thickness is all I need for unbelievable slip. It leaves the hair soft, but the protein in it gives some structure and it really does seem to tighten up the curl. The very floral scent is a little stronger than I would like and it does seem to linger a bit. Its not offensive, though.Just remember to use this one sparingly because its concentrated stuff.
This is my favorite Curl Junkie Conditoner! It detangles way better than the smoothing condish, leaves hair moisturized, strong and bouncy...smells great!
I am impressed! This is truly a fantastic conditioner. As an athlete, I subject my tresses to heavy doses of sun, chlorine and friction (from bike helmets/visors/caps) on a daily basis. Hence, I encounter more than my fair share of tangles and have been on the hunt for a conditioner with mega slip. A quarter size dollop is all that it takes to untangle my porous, 3a strands. The snarls literally melt away without much help from my fingers or shower comb. As a bonus, this conditioner is lightweight and tends to give a gentle boost to my curl pattern. I previously tried CJ Smoothing Conditioner (thinking that "smoothing" would give me the slip that I need), but this product does not detangle nearly as well as BeautiCurls. Highly recommended for fine, porous curlies in need of major help in the detangling department.
This is the first protein conditioner I've tried that my hair truly loves. The protein (keratin) is actually pretty low on the list but my hair must like it that way. :) I find it very moisturizing for a protein condish!
This conditioner is quickly becoming my favorite. It leaves my hair feeling moisturize and strong at the same time. Love it!
This is the best! It is very concentrated and really works great on my fine, frizzy, highlighted blonde hair. Another Curl Junkie product I love. It's worth every cent!
WOW! This is the best ever! Thick and fantastically moisturizing. It is one of my favs now. This definitely helped with my frizz and gave me gorgeous curls. I use it as a LI and am sold! Love Curl Junkie!
How OMG fabulous is this condish. It smells floral (there's an iris note in there, methinks) and it has lovey slip (which increases the longer you leave it on, like MAGIC), and has strengthening protein. My fine, dry hair loves this. No weigh-down. Nicely moisturizing. Clean feminine smell. Wonderful base for me to add Smoothing Lotion and use the CurlQueen. This is my fave rinse out in the Curl Junkie line. My thirsty porous hair loves it. This and Curl Rehab fill my showertime condish needs amazingly well. And without question, this perks up the curls. I do find them curlier since adding this to my regimen. I guess the protein keeps the perk. :D
This is some serious business in the conditioning department. Super fantastic! Really moisturizing and lots of slip.
It must be one of the best conditioners out there. First you don't need a lot of it, leaves your hair smooth, moisturizes and leaves your curls tangle free. To add to it I recently had a color stripped from my hair, which was very damaging and this is the only conditioner that left my hair conditioned and tangle free. And of course as all other CurlJunkie products it smells wonderful.
It smells great, has wonderful slip and leaves my hair a little more curly. I'm a CJ convert for sure!
Great conditioner which left my curls bouncy and shiny. Good detangler with very light scent. Will repurchase.
