I've used it and didn't think it was "special" for the price. It was a while ago, so I can't really remember the specifics.
I found it the same. I loved the fragrance of the product. It has a jelly texture. I found it similar to DM Miracurl, Camille Rose Curl Maker in texture. It is a little lighter. As for results, I get similar results with products that are less expensive, so I haven't reordered.

I just had to chime in, because I asked my dad to pick up the pumpkin seed deep conditioner for me from the whole foods in baltimore. i read the reviews here, and i looked at the ingredients online, and i thought it might be good.

Word of warning... although it is not listed on the website, the bottle I received has patchouli oil in it. I used it this morning and my hair still smells like an unwashed hippie.

Yes!!! I was going to post that a couple of weeks ago, but didn't want to be accused of stereotyping patchouli users as stoners : )

It is a very nice conditioner, but the fragrance IS quite potent. Good thing I only had a sample & hadn't yet sprung for thr full size bottle.

SN: I noticed that the Acure Organics Argan poo and condish has pumpkin seed oil but no patchouli. I've been resisting the impulse to buy it, but my resolve is slowly but surely weakening ...

Yup. I like the conditioner but the smell lingers in my hair for a couple days, despite having washed and conditioned again!

Update! I wanted to save some people the trouble that I have experienced with my bottle. I don't know if I'm the only one, but when I clicked the ingredients link given by kathymack above, it took me to the Sevi website (what I now realize was an outdated version of their website copyright 2010). Their actual website was updated in 2012, so I'm not sure how, but I was getting the old one with an old ingredients list. Their current site does list patchouli in the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner.

I only found this out after emailing their customer service. The rep that I corresponded with was very agreeable and let me know that I should be able to return my bottle to my local whole foods without a receipt. So I will confirm that when I get a chance. I would also like to try the Seaberry Buckthorn conditioner, so maybe I will pick that up if I go to my parents at some point. The pumpkin seed did work very well. It was just the smell that didn't do it for me.

Have to update this post (and thread.) I started using the gel again a few weeks ago. Now, I think it's fabulous! Use it with their hair lotion under it. I been getting really great hair with that combo (and the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner as my rinse out.)

Thanks for the updates on these products. I am looking into quite a few of them.

When I purchased my Seabuckthorn Berry shampoo (which smells heavenly, I might add), she gave me a sample of the Pumpkin Seed deep conditioner. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it, and I used it as a leave in one day - big mistake. Now that I'm treating it like a deep conditioner, it's freaking love over here! I also love the way it smells. I love essential oils, mmmm. The sample size has lasted me quite a bit of uses, I'm surprised. When it runs out, I think I will be purchasing the bigger size.

I was torn between several products...

It was kinky curly vs Sevi, but I felt like Sevi had nicer ingredients.
