Nature's Gate Hemp Nourishing Conditioner for Dry/Frizzy Hair

Hey everyone!!

So one day I was surfing the 4a boards and the Nature's Gate product line (in general) was being discussed and I saw a comment by EmpressRi about how she used the Hemp Nourishing Condish and it calmed her frizz.

I dunno about you, but conditioner doesn't usually do that for me, so I had to investigate further. I went to my local Ricky's(NYC) and bought the Hemp Condish (18 fl oz) for $5.99, but it can also be found @ Whole Foods for the same price (and sometimes at a discount online via VitaCost.com, etc).

Product: Nature's Gate Hemp Nourishing Conditioner for Dry or Frizzy Hair

Claims: "Effectively conditions hair to help restore natural moisture balance. Hair is nourished with essential fatty acids from Hemp Seed Oil and nutrients from Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Borage Seed and Jojoba Oil. The repairing elements of Milk Thistle and the ultra-moisturizing benefits of Brazil Nut Oil make this conditioner the ideal choice for dry, frizzy hair."

Ingredients: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride, Ruscus Aculeatus (Butcher’s Broom) Root Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elder) Flower Extract, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Extract, Chrysanthemum Coccineum Flower Extract, Bertholletia Excelsa (Brazil Nut) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Caramel.

Size: 18 fl ounces
Price: $5.99

Consistency: I compare the consistency to KCCC. It's on the thin side/globbish like FSG if you've never tried KCCC.

Smell: Sweet herbal

Moisture capacity: 7-8/10 which is good considering the consistency isn't all that rich. This condish leaves the hair pretty moist and soft. I have pretty thick hair so I have to use a tad more, but that's saying something.

Slip: Excellent slip and because of this my tangles melted in the shower, which is really all you hope for a conditioner other than moisture till..

It actually does what it says and frizz DIES.

I was shocked the first time I played with it just for an overnight shot of moisture along with Shescentit Jojoba Hair Milk after a home color/DT and was impressed. I woke up the new morning with a perfect mini afro. LOL!!

Today I decided to try it again to see what it would do as a formal wash n go, again with minute amount another simple moisture cream (Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream). Scrunched, diffused to 70% dry...

and umm... yeah this conditioner is the business!! I can only imagine if I decided to use anything with hold on top of this but the frizz control for me was the same if I'd used a gel or gelly. The conditioner left in has a natural hold of its own that you feel as it dries,

My hair is soft, it has movement, and there is some definition and bounce. Shine? Not so much, but that's an issue that could easily be remedied with a shine agent. At least it looks well conditioned.

I'm about fully dry right now and could leave the house if I wanted with essentially naked hair. No hairspray, mousse, gel, nada -- just conditioner and moisture cream on my head. CRAZY!

Just goes to show that perhaps LESS is MORE!

I've attached pics of my hair wet as well as dry to show you what I mean. Just wanted to share this with you guys, and also give this conditioner an official thread of its own. I think its earned it (at least for me).

I welcome your thoughts.

Funny you should mention this conditioner. I just used in my rotation a few weeks back. I liked it. It did not do amazing stuff for my hair, but it was good enough at moisturizing. Didn't control frizz, but I attribute that more to styling products in my case.

I also got the Nature's Gate Biotin conditioner at the same time I bought the Hemp. The Biotin seemed drying to me. I will give it another try before it becomes shaving cream.

Well, try it and see if it acts as a good bridge to styling. Perhaps the styling product choice doesnt play well with it--especially if its something like KCCC for example(which doesn't play well with oil based things, like this conditioner).

If not, you're right, it would be a "just right" shaving cream. LOL!!

I've been trying to find this on the ground for the last couple of weeks. I'm going to hit up the natural store because I can never find it in Whole Foods
I got my bottles of Nature's Gate from vitavost when I was placing an order anyway. I think I paid $3.99. So if you order from them for other stuff throw in a condish or 2.

I think others have mentioned finding the conditioners at Big Lots or stores like that for even cheaper.

Tried the Hemp Condish today, but it was a bit of a bust . It was raining cats and dogs all day and I was out and about. No surprise...I have frizz. Now, before I went out my curls were frizz free so I'm going to try it again on a nice and sunny day.

Nat, your pics look great! Oooh, I do love that new avatar!

You know, this may be a really good keeper combo for you. (Although, really, I miss the minifro. That rocked.)

It looks not just frizz-free, it looks REALLY well conditioned, and the curlage is solid. It looks healthy.

Thumbs up.

I have this conditioner, use it as a co-wash on ocassion....will have to try it as a leave-in.
$5 off first order at iherb use code KEY066
I've been looking for an inexpensive leave-in, but I still have a liter of Jessicurl Too! Shea (which is great... just a little expensive for my budget).

I see http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Gate...ng-Conditioner has this for only $3.80! As if I don't have enough stuff under the cabinet... Why... oh... why do you girls do this to me?

OK-OK... I'm gonna be strong and wait until my supplies are down before shopping again.

I must admit that I too havwe tried the NG Hemp. When I used it at first (Last summer before going CG) it was great. I would used it after swimming.

But I don't know what happened. It just suddenly pooped out on me.

The same thing happened with the NG Tea Tree Condish.

I admit that I was sad when it stopped working.

Dang! I want your hair! I love your curls, and the VOLUME!

Still, you should rock the fro from time to time because I loved that look on you.

second or third/4th/5th in command.

Thanks for the compliments! I actually reviewed your stuff on Etsy finally and attached some photos with the reviews.

I'm gonna revisit mini fro likely this weekend. I'm going to see if I can reproduce it with other combos. I merely stumbled upon it and now I have to do it purposefully. LOL!!
