Devacurl One Condition (& ^ ! ~)
Primary Positive: soft piecey definition, good moisture source, excellent detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner provided excellent detangling and very good distribution and felt nice in rinse cycle. When I scrunched my hair after applying gel, it didn't clump well and was messyónot a good sign. But in the am, my hair was wavy-curly with loose, soft piecey definition. I also had a good amount of surface frizz. The definition loosened and frizz increased thru the day, though my hair still felt soft through the frizz. The frizz increased in both warm and cool weather similarly and when some conditioner was left in or it all was rinsed out similarly for me.

Aquage Healing Conditioner (* ^)
Primary Positive: excellent detangling, encouraged curls, piecey definition, good moisture source
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner made suds-ish stuff in my hair like Elucence did and provided very good detangling and distribution. It had so much slip that my hair clip fell out in the shower because my twisted-up hair kept un-twisting from the super-slip. When I scrunched after applying gel, the ends wanted to stay one mass while the roots to mid-length (a few inches from the ends) separated into clumps so I was a little concerned. But in the am, I had nice piecey definition. Overall, my hair was more wavy than curly but a few curls interdispursed. There was some some spider weby frizz, mainly on the back and very front. In warmer temps, later in the day, I had a few, individual ringlets form. However, in warmer temps, I also had more moderate surface frizz, though it never broke up the definition amazingly. This was a good moisture throughout the day.

Innersense Color Radiance Daily Conditioner (* ^ %)
Primary Positive: good clumping, chunky curls, encouraged, good detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner provided detangling was slightly above average. There were brown flecks that felt scrubby in the conditioneróprobably the rice hulls (wouldn't use as a leave-in because of these). When I scrunched after applying gel, I saw a lot of promise because clumps were formed effortlessly. In the am, I had really nice, chunky, clumpy curls. The definition was more piecey than natural-soft but not the size of normal piecey definition but chunkier and therefore a bit softer. I didn't have any curl boosting, but my curls were clearly encouraged. I also had no discernable frizz first thing, and even by early afternoon, there was only a smidge of subtle halo frizz. I was pleased that this conditioner was more moisture rich, leaving my hair feeling soft. Because of all of the oils and how my curls acted when I worked out, I would recommend using this in cooler temps than hot/humid. By later in the afternoon, I had some surface frizz where a few groups of individual hairs were starting to move from the clumps (not crimped at all, not spider weby or fluffy either, very generic). The surface frizz increased a little more, not all the way to moderate, still mild.

Umberto Giannini Curl & Twirl Detangling Conditioner (* ! ^)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, piecey definition, great detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner provided very good detangling. It felt great and thick in my hair, especially after how dry it was from the previous . In the am, I had really impressive ringlets to the roots all around. There was mixture of piecey and clumpy curl definition. While there was some surface frizz (not crimped but not dry or spider weby either), but the frizz wasnít curl-detracting. It didnít do all that well on a muggy, humid day (increased spider weby and surface frizz).

Cristophe Color Extending Conditioner (& # ! %)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, clump definition
Primary Fault: surface frizz, c11-15 pareth-9 had buildup risk
This conditioner surprised me because my hair was so curly with thick clumps at the roots that broke down into lots of intertwined curls. There was a good bit of some spider weby frizz first thing. The definition held on all day as did curls. The surface frizz increased quite a lot in summerís heat and humidity, but it stayed minimal in cooler temps on dry days. The moisture wasnít heavy or intense, but my hair didnít feel dry either. This was the only conditioner with c11-15 pareth-9 that wasnít a frizzy disaster so I would recommend regular sulfate pooing with it (though I got away with using Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream or Gentle Lather and sulfate-pooing once a week) to avoid buildup problems. If the curls werenít so amazingly chunky all day, I wouldnít give this a very good rating, but for that and its all-day consistancy, it deserves it.

Activate Hydrating Conditioner (* ! ^ %)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, piecey definition, great detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner gave me impressive detangling in the shower. In the am, I had nice curl boosting and good, piecey-leaning definition. I did notice some surface frizz in more hot/humid weather and it was slightly lacking in moisture for warmer temps. But in cooler weather, it faired very well.

Nature's Gate Organics Asian Pear & Red Tea Rejuvenating Conditioner (* ^)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, natural definition, good detangling
Primary Fault: spider weby surface frizz
This conditionerís fragrance was dominated more by the red tea than a fruity smell (nice, not musky or strong). It detangled above average once I distributed it through my hair. In the am, the shine was nice, accenting pretty curls (definitely encouraged, slightly boosted). My hair felt soft too. Though the day, my curls maintained their consistancy curly-wise with natural-soft definition. It was nice to have a soft look but still defined clumps. There was some frizz, but it was spider weby, surface-bound, and soft so it was not noticeable from a distance. Also, thoughout the day, my curls remained moisturized all the way to the ends.

Jessicurl Aloeba Conditioner (* + ~)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, great as a leave-in, great for fine wavies/curlies
Primary Fault: quite light moisture
Essentially, this is the lightweight version of Too Shea. It wasnít enough moisture for me and gave me light and airy frizz, but it was excellent as a leave-in and those with finer, wavy hair love it. It did encourage my curls, despite being lighter weight in the moisture department.
water infused with lemongrass, nettle, burdock, kelp, marshmallow root, horsetail, basil, bay leaf, oregano, rosemary, peppermint, sage, and thyme; aloe vera juice, behentrimonium methosulfate and cetearyl alcohol, coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, hydrolyzed oat flour, diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, fragrance.
GOOD BUT WOULD REPURCHASE BECAUSE SO INEXPENSIVE:
Regis Scented Cherry Almond Moisturizing Conditioner (& ^)
Primary Positive: amazing detangling, encouraged curl, piecey definition
Primary Fault: surface frizz
This conditioner was an *amazing* detangler. Its texture was very thin and liquidy. Ironically, its fragrance smelt nothing like cherry or fruit or almonds or food but instead smelt soapy. In the morning, I had amazing, piecey curls with some curl boosting. Unfortunately, some airy surface frizz formed a halo around the outside layer of my head. My curls were shiny and smooth within each clump. Sadly, I had quite a bit of crimped, muggy frizz, still mainly on the surface, show up later in the day. My curls became sausage curls and corkscrews. I was most surprised that this conditioner faired so well when it was so light and fluid in the hand.
deionized water (aqua), cherry bark extract, almond bark extract, rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis) extract, nettle (urtica dioica) extract, glyceryl stearate, cetyl alcohol, diamido fatty quat, stearyl alcohol, cetrimonium bromide, jojoba (buxus chinensis) oil, rice (oryza sativa) bran oil, vitamin E oil, hydrolyzed soy protein, fragrance (parfum), propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben
Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Moisturizing Conditioner for Normal to Dry Hair (* % !)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, volumeous
Primary Fault: some crimped surface frizz, really lousy in heat/humidity
The texture of this conditioner was very liquidy and runny so I had to pour only a little in my hand at a time, apply it to my hair, and then pour a little more in my hand to repeat the process. It detangled decently but wasnít above average. In the am, I had a mixture of nice, piecey-clumpy curls and skinnier ones, all of them quite volumeous. It was definitely curl boosting too. I also had a noticeable layer of surface frizz (somewhat spider weby, slightly crimped). The frizz increased rapidly to a moderate level of lightly-crimped, spider weby, mainly surface (a little b/w the curls) frizz. While the frizz was surfacy, it didn't inflate my hair to fluffy or poofy and only loosened the curls to soft, thick waves with a haze of spider weby surface frizz. The frizz never reached an intense level on the cool test day, remaining moderate, but in summer, it got quite out of control. In cooler temps, when the frizz seemed more manageable, I applied a little of this conditioner on dry hair to see if it helped the frizz. Unfortunately, it allowed the majority of the crimped frizz to remain. The curls did loosen by later in the day, leaving some crimped frizz amongst mainly soft, wavy hair.

TRESemme Vitamin B12 & Gelatin Anti-Breakage (& % !)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, volumeous
Primary Fault: Not enough moisture for amount of protein, spider weby frizz
This conditionerís detangling was slightly lower than average because when I was finger-combing out the tangles with my hair fully covered with cond, I still felt the need to hold halfway up my hair so my finger-combing wouldnít pull my hair and hurt. I did have less hair leave my head (shedding and breakage then) which was weird with the subpar detangling so maybe there was something to the Anti-Breakage marketing/positioning. In the am, I had definite curl boosting. With that, I also had some spider weby, wispy frizz where the hairs had separated and rebelled. I did have amazingly volumeous curls all day. I did notice some increased dryness/brittleness, perhaps from too little moisture or too much protein for the level of moisture.
This is the new formula, beginning Sept 2006. The vita E, B-7, B-3, C, and B-5 were the main added ingreds.

Nature's Gate Organics Persimmon & Rose Geranium Moisturizing Conditioner (* ^)
Primary Positive: encouraged curls, great moisture
Primary Fault: some spider weby surface frizz
This conditioner felt nice and had a light persimmon fragrance (like mandarin oranges but a little sweeter and less bite). I advise smelling for the fragrance before purchasing because the scent remained in hair when dry. It felt very silky and easy to detangle when had conditioner distributed through my hair, and I could really feel a difference in how silky my hair was after leaving the conditioner in my hair a few minutes in the shower. In the am, the shine was great. My curls were a little skinny in the length and not curl boosted but encouraged. By midday, the definition loosened and softened, and, by late afternoon, I had some barely defined waves all around with a little spider weby surface frizz. My hair was still soft late in the day so the moisture level was *much* better than the Organics Shine formula.

Pantene Restoratives Time Renewal (& %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, soft hair
Primary Fault: some surface frizz, lousy in warmer temps
This conditioner did well in my hair with some left in and styler-free in cooler temps. I just had to throw that in. It also left my hair feeling softer than the Frizz Control (and no crimped frizz like the Frizz Control gave me in warmer temps) and the Breakage Defense, which surprised me since it has more dimethicone rather than moisture ingredients. I had nice, encouraged curls and good shine all day.

Natureís Gate Hemp Nourishing Conditioner for Dry or Frizzy Hair (* %)
Primary Positive: soft definition, encouraged curl
Primary Fault: some crimped surface frizz, lousy in warmer temps
First off, I love the fragrance. It reminded me somewhat of the Natureís Gate Herbal Conditioner. Its texture was lighter than I'd expected and took a fair amount to feel saturated, but it detangled pretty well with even a smaller amount. In the am, my curls were bouncy and in piecey definition. Overall, my hair felt soft though the ends felt a little parched. It encouraged my curls more than boosting. I did have some slightly crimped surface frizz that showed up midday but was less noticeable in cooler temps (but the curls were slightly looser in cooler temps too). It also became somewhat fluffy by the end of the day. This conditioner produced a very softly defined, natural look.

Natureís Gate Jojoba Revitalizing Conditioner for Damaged Hair (* %)
Primary Positive: piecey definition, encouraged curl
Primary Fault: some crimped surface frizz, lousy in warmer temps
I was amazed how thin this conditioner was coming out of the bottle. In the morning, I had amazing, piecey curls. My hair was noticeable shiny. I also had moderate spider weby frizz across the surface of my hair that was slightly crimped.
In warmer temps, the frizz increased until it was all-out intense and the curls loosened to barely waves. In cooler temps the frizz was fairly constant in concentration thru the day (which wasn't great since it started around moderate, but at least it didn't intensify), and my curls stayed fairly consistant too, loosening initially to softer ones and then holding the rest of the day. My hair felt nice and soft, except in summer when the frizz made my hair feel coarse and wiry-dry.

Suave Professionals Healthy Curls Conditioner (& %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curls, good clumping, volumeous
Primary Fault: frizz throughout
My curls looked great with this conditioneróvery 3-D and volumeous. Great curl shape. Good definition size. Consistantly curly all around. The fragrance did smell awful and lingered until hair is bone dry and resurfaced when I dampened itósmelt like aftershave meets an old lady smellóvery weird. Frizz started at ends and moved to in/between-the-curls and then all over and frizz uncurled the curls some but not completely. I'd say this is the best of the Suave ProfessionalsÖif you can get past the fragrance.

VO5 Strawberries and Cream Conditioner (* !)
Primary Positive: good cheap option, piecey definition, curl boosting
Primary Fault: Not enough moisture if youíre dry, takes a lot of product
This conditioner smelt a little fake-strawberry (like artifically sweetened, strawberry scented/flavored product rather than like strawberries the fruit) but still nice. I suggest you smell it before purchasing because the fragrance lingered even a little when hair was dry. In the am, the piecey definition was really pretty. I had curl boosted ringlets here and there. The clumping reached the roots with coils all the way up. There was some frizz but not an excessive amount (kind of airy, a little bit more near the ends). The moisture level was good and reminded me of Suave Coconut Conditioner, maybe a smidge more. (note: This is the NEW 2006 formulation.)
water aqua, cetyl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, stearalkonium chloride, stearyl alcohol, steareth-21, glyceryl stearate, fragaria vesca (strawberry) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean) seed extract, tocopherol acetate, biotin, niacinamide, polysorbate 20, ascorbic acid, panthenol, propylene glycol, dmdm hydantoin, disodium edta, fragrance parfum, red 33 ci 17200
Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner (*)
Primary Positive: decent detangling, good cheap option
Primary Fault: Not enough moisture if youíre dry, takes a lot of product
This conditioner was not bad at all for the price, but itís worth mentioning that I went through a bottle every two-three weeks because it took more conditioner to feel moisturized so it wasnít as cost-effective as the price suggested because of the lack of product concentration. I used it for several months, and my curls were moisturized decently. However, after using for a few months in summer, when I got my hair colored, my hair felt dry for months, almost like it didnít have enough moisture built up enough to handle the processing after this conditioner was it for so long. Itís good enough for ideal hair conditions, but I need something more mixed in to keep up my hair's health. I couldn't feel or see (frizz, etc) any signs this wasn't conditioning enough until after my hair didn't rebound well from the color. Note: I tested the new formula released fall 20i06 and got identical results. The ingredients on the bottle were the same as the old formula, but the Suave website had different ingredients listed.
water (aqua), cetyl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, potassium chloride, fragrance (parfum), distearyldimonium chloride, disodium edta, glycerin, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, propylene gylcol, silk amino acids, honey (mel), nettle (urtica dioica) extract, rosemary (rosemarinus officinalis) extract, coconut (cocoa nucifera) extract
GOOD--THE STRONG SIDE OF GOOD:
Biolage Ultra-Hydrating Conditioning Balm (& ! ^ #)
Primary Positive: clumpy curls, curl boosting
Primary Fault: crimped frizz
This conditioner provided above average detangling with that classic biolage, mild fragrance. In the am, I had a surprising head full of clumpy curls were everywhere;. I was expecting this to weigh me down, not spring me up! The curls had nice, good-sized, clumpy definition with some mild frizz. I noticed that the frizz increased when I went outside (humidity), and I lost some definition and curl on top because it was so humidity-like frizzy. Under that layer of frizz, I had pretty curls, and the frizz actually formed "frizzy tubes" from corkscrews that were frizzy but had held their curl shape so the frizz didnít break up the curls but instead morphed them into frizzy tubes of curl. I didnít find my hair to be as soft as I expected from the name, but I think the frizz made it feel roughed up. Even in cooler temps, I got noticeable frizz. I know that lanolin is technically a wax, so I figure this is the problem, but with regular sulfate-containing shampooing, I didnít face buildup, though I did find I needed to clarify sooner.
water/aqua, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium chloride, glycerin, amodimethicone, cetyl esters, fragrance, methylparaben, cetrimonium chloride, trideceth-12, chlorhexidine dihydrochloride, propylene glycol, hexyl cinnamal, polysorbate 20, coumarin, linalool, butylphenyl methylpropional, hydroxycitronellal, amyl cinnamal, shea butter fruit/butyrospermum parkii, geraniol, algae extract/algae, pollen extract, saponaria officinalis extract, sage leaf extract/salvia officinalis, silk amino acid, lemongrass extract/cymbopogon schoenanthus, wheat germ oil/triticum vulgare, methyl-2-octynoate.
Modern Organic Products (MOP) Mixed Greens Conditioner (* %)
Primary Positive: nice definition, encouraged curls, minimal frizz in cooler temps
Primary Fault: not good in warmer temps, fluffiness in warmer temps
This conditioner had several apparent strengths. For one, I used less than half an ounce, and it felt like I overdid it. It distributed very easily and detangled effortlessly (even though I pooed with sulfates before using it). Also, after rinsing, my hair felt very silky but not coney. In the am, I had lots of happy, piecey curls. However, in warmer weather, the heat/humidity turned my curls to fluff, and dry fluff at that. I was left with frizzy tubes of curls. In cooler temps, my hair was more wavy with still nice, piecey definition. I did have a little curl boosting through the day on a cooler day, but it was subtle. My hair felt much softer in the cooler temps and had very minimal frizz as well.
