Review: Herbal Essences Hydralicious Reconditioning Conditioner

I recently uploaded a video mentioning this product and decided to do a more in depth review for those of you who wanted more details. First thing, I've always loved Herbal Essences. The conditioners give great slip, smell amazing, leave my hair soft and come in large jugs so I don't have to buy another bottle every other co-wash. With that being said, this conditioner lived up to every expectation that I had for it. I'm a huge fan of cheapie conditioners that still get the job done, and believe me these can be hard to find in the big world of natural hair. But, luckily I'm here to help guide you, or at the very least show you what works/doesn't work on my hair along with details on why.

My Review:

The first thing I noticed about this product was how thick and creamy it was, which is always promising for my curls. I applied the conditioner to freshly washed hair and it immediately restored my softness and elasticity. Even with dealing with week-old uncombed hair, the slip was amazing which surprised me. This product left my curls popping and hair feeling great, and even aided in a nice sleek frizz free twistout. I do however have one problem... IT IS ONE OF THE FEW CONDITIONERS THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN LARGER PACKAGING. At $2.97 a pop it really isn't a bad deal at all, but the repeat visits to Wal-Mart is enough to make anyone roll their eyes. With all of that being said, yes I will buy this conditioner again, I hope they decide to produce it in the larger bottles for consumer sake, but I'm happy I came across it. I give this product a 8/10.
