This conditioner I bought based on the reviews and the fact that I already own the Maple Holistics Argan Oil Sulfate-Free Shampoo (this conditioner was recommended to use with this shampoo). I have to say, I actually really like this conditioner a lot! It has a nice balance between being thick enough where your hair really does feel silky (in the shower) while not being too hard or too heavy to wash out of my hair (which is a problem for me especially given my hair is prone to getting oily). I feel like it helps my color and heat-damaged hair, and also helps make it easy to detangle once I get out of the shower.
One thing to note is the size shown in the picture- it makes it look like you are getting a much larger product, so the 8oz bottle I received did look a lot smaller than expected (however the item description does state 8oz, the picture is just a little misleading).
It has a pleasant, slightly sweet vanilla smell to it, but it doesn’t leave a scent in your hair (at least for me, and this may be a positive or negative depending if you are sensitive to smells or prefer your hair to smell “pretty”). It’s easy to get the product out of the bottle and it goes nicely. Even though the bottle may seem small when you look at it, it really does last a long time because you don’t need to use that much in your hair. I’ve had it for about a month or two and it barely looks like I’ve used it!
I have to be careful what ingredients are in my shampoo/conditioner because my hair is Keratin-treated and also colored, so I have to stay away from certain chemicals/ingredients that are commonly found in other shampoos/conditioners- and I’m happy to say that this one fits the bill for me. I’m also pretty familiar with ingredients/chemicals as I’ve been reading labels for years, so I can honestly say that this conditioner has no harsh chemicals or synthetic dyes, and specifically for me no sulfates or sodium chloride which strip the keratin from hair. On the bottle it says it’s hypoallergenic, BPA free, non-toxic and non-sensitizing (I can’t comment on the authenticity of these claims, but thought I’d share what is written on the actual bottle). However, I’d be pretty inclined to believe it given its performance and the list of ingredients (mainly amino acids and argan and jojoba oil- these work to strengthen hair as amino acids make up proteins, and the oils help with moisture and detangling- aka the “silk” that’s in its name). Also, the price is actually very reasonable and pretty comparable to many drugstore conditioners, but the quality is much higher- this is why I gave the product 5 stars- it’s an excellent value for the price and quality.
I’m including a few pics for reference of size and ingredients.
*I also was NOT compensated or given any incentive to write this review, as I saw a ton of others were, when I was researching this product. This is strictly from someone who relies on and values honest product reviews from others, especially when buying on Amazon. Hopefully someone finds this review helpful!
