Default Earthly Delight?

I got a conditioner by this brand, after a trip to Whole Foods (which turned out to be a very expensive trip). Has anyone seen these products? Anyone tried them? It's an all-natural product with a fairly simple ingredient list. In any case, I guess I'll be giving some info as soon as I try it. Of course, part of me wants to go back for the shampoo while I'm at it . . .
And then there's the matter of all the wonderful things I've read about Karen's Body Beautiful, tempting me to visit the store tomorrow and pick up a few things. Sigh, joining this site could turn out to be very expensive!

I looove this conditioner! It's very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way for me. My hair is wavy though, so someone with a different hair type might need a bit more.

It makes a great leave-in too.

That's good to know. I have fairly dry hair, and I usually need a good amount of conditioner. Have you tried either one of the shampoos (there were two, one had cinnamon like the conditioner, the other I think was more herbal)?

I saw the pomade and was like oooh, till I saw the $15 price tag. Plus the ingredients aren't worth $15.

I haven't tried the Earthly Delight shampoos yet. I'm trying to use up my supply of shampoo bars.

oh I should mention the conditioner has glycerin and proteins, which some people may not like. for me it's working great so far.

Updating to say I love these products and to post a site where people can get Earthly Delight online (otherwise you can get them at NY Whole Foods stores). I ended up buying the herbal shampoo because the conditioner just feels so nice on my hair.

Willner Chemists sells these products. They have two stores here in NY and one in Atlanta. You can order through their site:
http://www.willner.com/products.aspx

And these are the ingredients for the herbal shampoo and the conditioner:

Herbal Shampoo: Distilled water, sage, rosemary, nettles, wheatgerm soap, horsetails, essential oils of ylang ylang, neroli & sweet orange.

Hair Conditioner: Deionized water, vegetable glycerine, rice bran oil, avocado oil, wheatgerm protein, panthanol, amino acids, vegetable emulsifying wax, essential oils of neroli, cinnamon & coconut.

You can try your local Whole Foods, but they might not have it, since it is a NY-based product.

So I went to whole foods and I picked up earthly delight and the hugo naturals red tea conditoner. The hugo natural smells good but the earthly delight has great slip and left my hair soft. I left it on my hair for about an hour I had a small amount of dandruff prior but one I rinsed this out my scalp was fine I guess it fights dandruff too who would've thought? Thanks for letting us know about this great conditioner sairis how good is their shampoo? I wish the conditioner came in a larger size.

She has two shampoos. I have the herbal one. The other is called Tropical Rain, and I think it's more of a moisturizing shampoo. I love the herbal shampoo. It leaves hair feeling nice and clean without drying it out (and my hair is pretty dry).
Glad you're liking the conditioner. The Hugo is nice too, it's just lighter. I use it when I feel I need a little less moisture.

I'm using the tropical rain shampoo and the conditioner currently. The shampoo leaves me with this squeaky clean feeling and it's got a really good lather. I did some research on the ingredients...

Nettle and Horsetail promote hair growth and rosemary stimulates the scalp and nourishes follicles to do the same.

I like how thick the conditioner is. I BC'd not too long ago, so it doesn't take a lot for me. I bet it'd make a good leave in concoction... Hmmmmm.....

I've decided that I don't care for the shampoo. It leaves my hair very with that squeaky clean feeling, kinda stripped. I don't like it. When I use the conditioner it makes it all better though. But still... Full (95%) bottle of Tropical Rain Shampoo up for grabs in NY anyone?
