Inulin is fiber. It's weird to see it listed in conditioner... It's in a lot of health/snack bars because it provides that "full" feeling, and... other things that fiber does. It is a prebiotic, meaning when you eat it, it encourages good bacterial life in your guts.

I must now go Google to see why in the world it is in a hair care product...

EDIT: Ok, I'm seeing it billed as a moisturizer (derived from chicory root), which appears to be similar in effect to agave nectar. Again, it's an odd one, so that might be it? Found: "The agent moisturises and straightens damaged hair."
