This is one of my holy grail items. This has been a staple in my hair care regimen for years, even during my relaxed hair days.
When it comes to deep conditioners, I like using products that are actually intended for deep conditioning. You know, products that say “To deep condition, sit under a warm dryer for 30 minutes”. To me, this clearly indicates the product is meant to be used as a deep conditioner. I do have one issue with this product. Read on to find out what that is!
This product is targeted towards dry hair and is meant to replenish moisture. It is high vitamins C & E, helping to restore moisture. The inclusion of argan oil helps to smooth down the hair and restore key nutrients. Shine is also boosted, while soothing the scalp with various extracts.
Some key ingredients are water, shea butter, aloe vera juice, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, vitamin c, and vitamin e.
Directions for Use:
After shampooing, apply to damp hair. Work through, leave on for 1 to 2 minutes then rinse out. You also have the option of using it as a deep conditioner by applying the conditioner to dry hair, leaving on for 15 minutes and then shampooing and conditioning hair as usual.
How I Use It:
If a conditioner provides directions for how to use it as a deep conditioner, then I’m all over it. Given the cost, and the thickness of the conditioner, I definitely do not apply and rinse out after only 2 minutes. I make sure to get my money’s worth! I prefer to apply this to both damp and dry hair, and sit under my steamer for about 30 minutes.
The only issue I have with this product (and honestly it’s not with the product per se) is the amount I get in relation to how much hair I have now. When I did my big chop, and only had a short amount of hair to work with, a bottle of Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner would last me months. And this was with weekly deep conditioner.
However, with my hair now longer and thicker, 1 bottle might last me 1 month (and that’s being very generous). For me, longer/thicker hair = more product. This is a nice problem to have, in terms of achieving hair growth goals. But, this can really hurt my pockets considering an 11oz bottle costs me a little over $10. Perhaps a larger sized bottle would help but, how much would that cost?
One way to work with this issue is to use other ingredients to help stretch my conditioner. One of my favorite conditioner recipes involves adding honey, aloe vera juice, and coconut oil to my Honeysuckle Rose conditioner.
When you find something that works, you stick with it and find creative ways to ensure it continues to work for you as your hair grows.
Love It or Leave It:
This is definitely a love. Like I said earlier, if it came in a bigger bottle (without a much higher price tag of course), this would probably solve my issue of going thru 1 fairly quickly. However, adding some extra ingredients allows me to keep this in my current rotation of deep conditioner products. We’ll see what happens when I get to bra strap length hair!
Where to Buy:
You know I’m a brick and mortar kinda of girl! I typically buy this conditioner from Whole Foods or The Vitamin Shoppe. You can also find it at online retailers such as curlmart.com, drugstore.com and amazon.com.
