Default Yes to Blueberries Healthy Hair Repair

So, since I waited too long to re-order the DB Pumpkin Seed Conditioner I love. I'll definitely have some empty bottle over lap time. I think I'm going to try the new Yes to Blueberries Healthy Hair Repair Conditioner.

Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Esters, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Stearyl Dihydroxypropyldimonium Oligosaccharides, Lupine Amino Acids, Fragrance (Parfum)**, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Trifolium Pratense (Clover) Flower Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil*, Ipomoea Batatas Root Lees Extract, Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Trimethylolpropane Tricaprylate/Tricaprate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid.

* Certified Organic Ingredient
**100% Natural Fragrance


Anyone like this?

The ingredients look good. I hope someone has tried and can give a review.

I was actually getting on here to ask the same question. I use the yes to carrots and cucumbers regularly. I got the new formula cucumbers last week and I'm loving it even more. I'm planning on getting the blueberries soon. I hope someone's tried it. I'm in love with the yes to line whether its face, hair, or lips. Love love.

The Yes to Cumbers has aloe in it, so I can't try that one, but you ladies are definitely giving me the encouragement I need to try YTB. At this point it's absolutely for the contribution of the curly community right?

I use the YTB facial cleanser and looove it. I would love to try the condish, but concerned about the amino acids.

It depends on your hair. The reason I am concerned is because I am finding that my hair does not respond well to some proteins ( which are made of amino acids).

"Lupine Amino Acids" ...well, amino acids are the building blocks (so to speak) of proteins. So perhaps my hair will tolerate it. Won't know unless I try...so I ordered some

Yeah I'm not sensitive to all proteins, mainly wheat and quinoa. So I think I'll give it a shot. Also now that I know I'm sensitive to protein I can stop right away, instead of damaging my hair.

Well, I tried it today. Slip was just ok for me. The scent was ok. It did not make my hair feel like straw while wet, but did not feel as moisturizing as my go to GVPCB.

I've used it for two days and (a) I hate the smell. (b) Despite it being a lotion consistency it leaves quite the residue. I'm afraid it might build up with me co-washing. I need an emergency order of my DB conditioner. *Sigh* I really wish I could get it in retail stores.

I've tried the new cucumber and the carrot one and both didn't smell good and left my hair feeling greasy. I haven't tried the blueberry but i don't have a desire too since the other two suck!!

Okay...so I may have been too hasty to condemn this product. After having to use it for over a week I will say it does something pretty freaking well.

It does all the wonderful protein things to your hair, but it also moisturizes too so your hair doesn't feel like straw. While I think it's too heavy for my hair on a day to day basis and I do not like the smell. I think it would make a nice DT...especially for those of us who have protein sensitive hair and do not respond well to most protein treatments.

If you have porous hair that isn't easily weighed down and you like or don't mind super green scents, this may actually be a fantastic daily conditioner for you.

So I got the yes to blueberries and I LOVE IT. I've been using it as a RO for the past 2 weeks. It's medium thickness and a little goes a long way. It has great slip and detangles really well. I noticed after my first use that my curl pattern was really tight and springy and also had shine.

Only thing I don't like is that it doesn't smell like blueberries. But I read the ingredients and it has clove and some flower in it. I would definitely say it has a floral clove smell. Nothing too harsh just a little odd because I was hoping for blueberry aroma.

I give this 5 stars and I think is my HG along beside GVPCB
