Curlisto Botanical Rinse (&)
Primary Positive: natural curl, good definition
Primary Fault: spider weby frizz, crimped halo/surface frizz
This conditioner gave me some halo/surface frizz and spider weby frizz. It was better in cooler temps about the frizz than warmer temps. There was good clumping at the roots and nice, soft, natural-looking curl formation. Throughout the day it my hair looked fairly consistant (which is a rare event)óloose, softly defined, springy curls with a mild-to-moderate layer of spider weby frizz, though the frizz became a little more crimped and the roots became a little flattened. The moisture level seemed a little light but not really all that super-lacking. My hair looked moderately dry from all of the spider weby frizz but didnít feel as dry as it looked.

Batia & Aleeza Bio Protein Conditioner (& %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, good definition
Primary Fault: not good in heat or humidity/rain, crimped surface frizz
comparable to: Yanai CurlSpring Conditioner
After leaving this conditioner in hair a few minutes in a clip and taking it down to rinse, my hair was significantly silkier and smoother. However, when dry, it seemed slightly lighter in moisture than I require for regular use. In the am, I had nice curls that were shiny and defined. Unfortunately, I also had spider weby frizz everywhere that increased to crimped surface frizz through the day (much worse in wet or hot weather than cooler) and reached a level and intensity that was pretty messy. This was quite similar to the Yanai CurlSpring conditioner in its results except for providing fairly consistantly defined curls through the day. It was similar to the Yanai CurlSpring conditioner in that it had lighter but not super-light moisture and allowed a decent bit of crimped frizz.

Yanai CurlSpring Hydrating Deep Conditioner (& %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl
Primary Fault: not good in heat or humidity/rain, crimped surface frizz
comparable to: Batia & Aleeza Bio Protein Conditioner
In the shower, this conditioner was very similar to B&Aís cond. In the am, I had somewhat skinnier curls than I prefer and some curl encouragement that looked promising. However, later in the day, the skinniness loosened, causing most of the definition to fade and leaving some degree of natural curl and some fluffiness to remain. This was quite similar to the B&A conditioner in its results except for providing skinnier curls initially and undefined curls later. It was similar to the B&A conditioner in that it had lighter but not super-light moisture and allowed a decent bit of crimped frizz.

Alterna Hemp Repair Colored Hair Conditioner (new formula, changed late 2005) (&)
Primary Positive: encouraged curls
Primary Fault: Not enough moisture when just colored (old formula was much better)
This was not as good/moisturizing as the old formula but decent at revitalizing my curls post-coloring. This conditioner encouraged curls. I used to use this for the days just after coloring to return my moisture level back up to normal like pre-coloring. However, this new formula more of a day-to-day conditioner than having its previous superpowers. It also gave me some dry frizz and had some curl wilting during the day.

Pantene Restoratives Breakage Defense Conditioner (& %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, soft hair
Primary Fault: some fluffy 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). I had nice, encouraged curls, good shine, and just a little fluff.

Curl Junkie Healthy Condition Daily Conditioner - Fine Hair (* + %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl
Primary Fault: some spider weby and surface rope frizz
The fragrance for this conditioner was more of a lemon/slightly-orange fragrance than the "citrus-marine" description suggests, though not pledge or Mop Top lemonyÖwell, itís a different kind of citrus, letís just say. It was not all that in the detangling department until my hair was covered (which is average). In the am, my curls were encouraged but skinnier curls. I noticed that a few 3as really liked this but a couple 2bs didnít at all so I believe curlies would prefer this more than wavies, despite the ďfine hairĒ title in the name. In warmer temps, there was a moderate amount of spider weby frizz that increased fairly rapidly, but in cooler weather, it didnít show up until later and was more subtle. My more wavy side was fluffier and less defined, mainly because it seemed this conditioner preferred my curly side to encourage the curls of and define them. In fall, by mid-afternoon, I had some spider weby frizz and rope frizz on the surface, neither of which was intense. The moisture was on the moderate side, specifically not as light as the CJ Give 'Em the Slip.

Joico Silk Result Conditioner for Thick/Coarse Hair (& # %)
Primary Positive: piecey definition, good clumping, curls increased during the day
Primary Fault: spider weby surface frizz, frizz increased with repeated use (best when used in rotation)
This conditioner gave me some piecey curls that looked really quite amazingly piecey and bendy-curly. Unfortunately, there was some moderate frizz (a generous amount for first thing in the morning) which is quite spider weby (netting together between different curls). I could see the frizz increasing exponentially through the day; however, the curls actually increased as well (similarly to the Silk Result Fine Hair formula but much more so) and the volume was amazing (which was ironic since this is the formula for thick hair rather than fine).

VO5 Oasis Soothe & Smooth Conditioner with Honey & Almond (& ! ~ %)
Primary Positive: curl boosting
Primary Fault: not much moisture, lousy in warmer temps
After trying the Jasmine & Aloe version of the oasis conditioner and finding it ho-hum, I was really surprised how awesome this one is. I had intense curl boosting all around my head with curls intertwined everywhere. The shine was good too. Some surface frizz was there from first thing and increased to a layer of soft-looking, intense spider web-y frizz by midday in warmer weather. Actually, in warmer temps, there was just as much frizz as the Jasmine & Aloe version, but luckily, the frizz didn't break up the curls. In cooler temps, the frizz was softer and more bearable so the curls could be the star, and my hair felt softer instead of wiry in the cooler temps rather than the warmer ones. I liked this a good bit better than the Jasmine & Aloe for the curls' quality and lasting with the frizz rather than breaking up like with the Jasmine & Aloe.

Rusk Healthy Blackberry & Bergamot Strengthening Conditioner (& ! %)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, volumeous
Primary Fault: slightly lacking in moisture, frizz in warmer/mild temps
This conditionerís fragrance smelt just like blackberries. Its texture was fairly thick in my hands and creamy-rich. My hair really drunk this in. In the shower, I applied some, and it disappeared into my hair; applied more, and the same thing happened. First thing in the morning, I had super-skinny curls, but I didn't touch them and just went about my business. Within 15 minutes, they loosened/reclumped into chunkier, more natural curls that were clearly boosted. I also noticed good volume from curls stacked on curls, which I usually don't see resulting in volume because usually the curls are staggered more but these were all in a row on top of each other. The curls had fairly natural definition that was slightly piecey but softer. Unfortunately, in warm or mild temps, there was a noticeably amount of in-the-curls frizz that increased to slightly crimped frizz by the end of the day. It also didnít seem to be enough moisture in warmer temps, probably because the frizz roughing up the surface. This was the best of the Rusk conditioners, and in cooler temps, the curls remaining in all their volumeous splender without the moderate frizz that the warmer temps experienced.

MyHoneyChild Jamaica Island Conditioner (* + ! @)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, piecey definition
Primary Fault: lacking volume, skinny curls, fluffy starting at the ends and moving up, not enough moisture
This conditioner was very liquidy/fluid, probably from the lack of fatty alcohols. It was pretty great at detangling and distributed pretty well (not excellent, but very well). But it took quite a bit to feel it in my hair in the shower. In the am, I noticed some definite curl boosting with piecey definition, but they were on the skinny side. There was some moderate halo frizz. Unfortunately, the frizz made the ends fluffy, and then the frizz started moving up the curls, transforming them into fluffy pieces where curls once were. I really noticed a lack of moisture too. Also, I had concerns about the lack of preservatives and having to keep this in the fridge, especially since this conditioner spoiled when CelticCurls was using it and stored it in the shower.
coconut butter, coconut milk, raw honey, lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple essence oil, purified water.
Samy Colorcare Conditioner (& ~ %)
Primary Positive: piecey definition, volumeous
Primary Fault: general frizz, slightly lacking in moisture
This conditioner provided the most similar look (not detangling) Iíve found to Devacurl One Condition + Angell. It was very thick out of the bottle so it squirted out in a tube-like, emollient cream-looking, thick paste of conditioner. I needed a lot because the thickness didn't want to move through my hair easily and it wasnít not really detangling until a generous amount was applied. In the am, I had some surface frizz. My hair felt very lightweight and airy but, with that, very volumeous and full of body. The definition faded through the day into more natural looking, softer curls and became a little fluffy by the end of the day as the general frizz and slight dryness caused some fluff.
water, emulsifying wax, stearalkonium chloride, ceteryl alcohol, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, cetyl alcohol, silicone quaternium-14, cetyl phosphate, cetyl dimethicone, behentrimonium methosulfate, fragrance, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, panthenol, citric acid, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernol, hydroxypropyltrimonium honey, tocopherol acetate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, tocopherol, retinyl palmitate, phytantriol, sea salt, sodium lactate, sodium pca, sorbitol, proline, methylchloroisothiazoline, methylchloroisothiazolinone
Biolage Conditioning Balm (* @)
Primary Positive: natural curl/definition, encouraged curl (not actual boosting), good moisture
Primary Fault: surface frizz
Itís worth noting that I did try the old formula of this as well, and I found the old formula weighed down my curls into waves but this maintained them as they were (not boosted but not elongated either. As for the new formula, in the shower, it felt almost waxy in my hair but provided very good detangling. In the am, I had nice, natural looking curls with very soft definition. There was no curl boosting, but it did encourage the shape of the curl to come out naturally. I did have some surface frizz (not crimped at all). My hair felt soft and looked very soft. The definition I started with didn't want to stay around. Overall, this offered pretty good moisture (not excellent, but prettygood), was not too heavy (thanks to the new formula), and gave me natural curl but wasnít anything special (though simplicity is nice too).
I reviewed the new formula, released late 2005.

Pantene Restoratives Frizz Control Conditioner (&, %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl
Primary Fault: not enough moisture, dry/surface frizz
This conditioner didnít make my hair as soft as the Anti-Breakage and Time Renewal Pantene Restoratives. My hair was a little roughed up and a little dry in the rinse cycle. I also noticed that when I tested this in cooler temperatures, this conditioner left my hair definitely softer. I got really nice curls with this all around my head (fairly uniform, despite the different curl types I have). Unfortunately, I got some crimped frizz in the heat of the day, though it calmed down in the evening. In cooler temps, I had minimal frizz but less curl encouraged too.

Nature's Gate Lavender & Aloe Nourishing Conditioner for All Hair Types (* @ %)
Primary Positive: low frizz in cool/cold weather, pretty waves, zaps frizz on dry hair
Primary Fault: some surface frizz, really lousy in heat/humidity
The conditioner smelt amazing (I love lavender). It texture was thin and runny, but it felt substantial in my hair without having to use much. In the am, I had piecey definition and skinny (but not stringy) waves that wove back and forth in wavy patterns (not intertwining but more criss-crossing along the side of my head). 95% definitely had a S-pattern (which was surprising since this conditioner wasn't heavy in the hand but very liquidy and light). In summer, I started out the day with noticeable spider weby frizz that was starting to form a ratís nesty look. In cooler temps, I had a few stray hairs beginning some spider weby frizz. In fall, the frizz wasn't all that bad (spider weby, not crimped, mainly surface) compared to the warmer temps, actually. Also, this wasnít nearly enough moisture in warmer temps so my hair felt drier and drier thru the day so by mid-afternoon, it was rough, parched, and poofy-expanded. In contrast, in fall, 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. In fall, I was able to apply some more conditioner on my dry hair when the frizz became moderate, and it made my hair shiny, zapped the frizz, and reclumped the waves again!
water, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower/leaf/stem extract, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium chloride, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, equisetum hiemale (horsetail) extract, juniperus communis (juniper) fruit extract, salvia officinalis (sage) leaf extract, echinacea angustifolia (coneflower) extract, althaea officinalis (marshmallow) root extract, yucca schidigera extract, arctium majus (burdock) root extract, panthenol, glycerin, hydroxyethylcellulose, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed wheat starch, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, salvia sclarea (clary) oil, bisabolol, cetyl esters, polyquaternium-10, butylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, disodium edta, fragrance.
This is my personal dividing line. I probably wouldn't ever repurchase any of the conditioners beneath this line.
THE AVERAGE GOOD RATED CONDITIONERS:
Ouidad Curl Quencher Conditioner (&)
Primary Positive: average curls
Primary Fault: spider weby frizz, fluffiness, not enough moisture, really not good in warmer temps
This conditioner wasnít anywhere near the moisture that the name Quencher suggested. Several said that the 2004 reformulation that bragged "longer lasting moisture retention" provided much less moisture. Overall, this made my hair light, airy, and fluffy. I canít imagine this weighing down someoneís hair because mine feels so lightweight. I always started out with nice, clumpy curls while it was wet to damp, but once it was completely dry, it began to move from a web of frizz and then later fluffy pieces (no longer curls but separated into strips of fluff that were curls). Actually, there was a lot of fluffiness. The moisture was definitely lacking my needs. Once the temp went above the mid-60s, the frizz cranked up noticeably.
water, cetearyl alcohol, dicetyldimonium chloride, panthenol, rosa canina fruit extract, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, echinacea purpurea extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) extract, algae extract, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, wheat amino acids, hair keratin amino acids, trimethylsilylamodimethicone, octoxynol-40, isolaureth-6, propylene glycol, glycerin, behentrimonium methosulfate, linoleamidopropyl ethyldimonium ethosulfate, dimethyl lauramine isostearate, polyquaternium-37, propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, ppg-1 trideceth-6, benzophenone-4, citric acid, sodium chloride, methylparaben, methylchloroisothiazolinone & methylisothiazolinone (canít be left in), fragrance.
ShiKai Color Reflect Intensive Repair Conditioner (& ^)
Primary Positive: good clumping, very good detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz, a little lacking in moisture
This conditionerís detangling reminded me of Elucence, and it was a similar texture too. It was so-so on the moisture, a little lacking in moisture but less so than most. I could never use as a DT, but it was quite nice as a regular conditioner. It provided me with good curls but a good bit of dry, surface frizz. It did provide more frizz in summer and less in cooler temps so I only recommend it in fall/winter.

Alba Botanicals Hawaiian Mango Moisturizing Hair Conditioner (* !)
Primary Positive: curl boosting, volumeous
Primary Fault: a little lacking in moisture, some frizz
This conditionerís fragrance reminded me of pixie sticks (flavored sugar in powder sticks) or sweetarts. In the am, I had noticeable curl boosting but also some spider weby frizz layered on top. My curls seemed to increase during the day (which means it wouldn't do as well in dry climates since it seemed to feed on the FL humidity). It also provided lots of volume. The frizz increased some and became a little crimped by the end of the day but wasn't excessive. The definition was chunky and piecey all mixed together. Despite the ingreds being identical to the Gardenia Hydrating formula, this was noticeably more moisture (though still lacking for my thirsty locks).

Curls Coconut Sublime Moisture Max Conditioner (&)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl
Primary Fault: stringy curls, lacking in moisture, fluffy frizz
This conditionerís fragrance seemed more lime than coconut. Unfortunately, after using a generous amount, my hair felt a little dry in the rinse cycle. In the am, my curls were very skinny and not curl boosted (slightly encouraged). During the day, a few individual curls became slightly boosted. However, I also had a steady increase in dryness and fluffiness. This just wasnít enough moisture for me. This is the new, summer 2006 formula that now contains wheat protein and a water insoluble silicone (dimethicone, which my hair doesnít generally mind).
purified water, stearalkonium choloride, cetyl alcohol, peg/ppg-20/6 dimethicone, cetearyl alcohol, polysorbate 60, hydrolyzed wheat protein, benzophenone-4, dimethicone, methylparaben, propylparaben, phenoxyethanol, fragrance
Yanai Color Retension Daily Conditioner (& ^ %)
Primary Positive: encouraged curl, very good detangling
Primary Fault: surface frizz, not good in humidity or heat
I canít list the fragrance as a positive or negative because itís going to be individual. To me, it was a musky, amber scent that wasnít too strong but was quite noticeable when my hair was wet but faded when dry. The detangling abilities were above average. In the am, the definition was fairly natural with nice, encouraged curls. There was some surface frizz, but it was never an amount that was excessive. In warmer temps and rainy days, the frizz became more of a fluffy layer with curls hidden underneath. But in cooler temps without rain, the fluffy surface frizz was much lighter and less noticeable. This wasnít a moisture-rich conditioner, but it was a sufficient amount of moisture and felt lightweight without feeling lacking. The results reminded me a lot of Curls Sublime Moisture Max with a little less moisture.
