  1. Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor!

    • Meg

      i was definitely going to say aussie’s 3 minute miracle!! i use it everyday and it’s amazing. i’ll never use anything else

    • whitney

      ditto, that was the first one i was thinking of. after a while i get tired of it but it works great when used every couple weeks for a while. my second choice goes to whatever smells best.

  2. aprilrobin

    Terax Crema. Especially great on my dry, coarse, thick hair. Expensive, but very little goes a long way. Een the smaller tube will last for months.

  3. Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship (red bottle!)

  4. Sass

    for me it’s tresemme vitamin e moisture rich conditioner

  5. Bodyshop Honey Conditioner

  6. Michelle

    L’oreal professionel Vitamino Color conditioner

  7. Sandra

  8. Taia

    S Factor Health Factor conditioner
    TIGI Love, Peace & The Planet conditioner
    Rusk Calm conditioner

  9. KyaLyn

    Ojon Shine and Protect Conditioner is the best, but I love Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Conditioner too.

  10. Chapis

    ENJOY hair products are teh best 😉

  11. Kella

    J.A.S.O.N. Natural – the biotin one, the A,C,E one, all of the ones I’ve tried. (I’ve got curly hair, so I need thick conditioner with no -cones, SLS, etc.)

  12. Infusium 23 (frizz)ology and (repair)ology.


    • hi

      I second that! My mom bought it for me as a dupe for my Garnier deep conditioner that I also love, and it repaired my hair within two uses. My hair was SOOO soft!!!! It’s cheap AND comes in a huge bottle.

  13. Natalie

    Bumble and Bumble’s Creme de Coco conditioner…..leaves my hair super soft

  14. sweetmama

    Redken Butter Treat and olive oil for a deep treatment

  15. 1 MEX-DIVA

    Morocoon oil/they have this deep mask coniditioner (expensive) but a little goes a long way… smells divine too… ALSO LOVE the Redken butter treatment…so I rotate… lol

  16. Christy

    Redken Blonde Glam Pure Pearl and Redken Color Extend Rich Recovery. This makes my hair so lusciously soft and keeps my blonde hair the perfect shade between salon visits.

  17. angie

    matrix biolage hydratherapie- expensive but well worth the $$$$$

  18. For me, it’s Wen Lavender…I can’t live without it!

  19. Cady

    I’m currently using Herbal Essenes’ Hydralicious Feather weight something. I’m not sure on the exact name, but it’s the orange one!

    It’s pretty good but I think I’m going to switch back to Aussie’s 3 minute miracle, or Dove’s Hair repair something.

  20. Jody

    Pureology Reconstruct and Repair Conditioner is the best ever!! It is quite expensive but I had a 20.00 coupon for Trade Secret and I lucked out and got a huge bottle for 27.00 today. I know that still sounds insane but this is awesome stuff!!

  21. My favorite is Dessert Essences Green Apple Voluminizing Conditioner.

  22. Leigh

    John Frieda Brilliant Brunette. Makes my hair really soft and super shiny.

  23. Christina

    biolage conditioning balm- expensive, but AMAZING

  24. Brittnie

    Nelson J Brazilian Hair Masque. It smells like Vitamin Water and works so well. I can still feel the softness a week after using it!

  25. ApHogee 3 minute conditioner! That thing works wonders, and smells a bit like coconuts! actually any deep conditioner or hair mask by apHogee works amazingly for my thick, course, curly hair thats been colors and straightened WAYYY too much!

  26. Vy

    Paul Mitchell tends to work pretty well. It makes my hair feel extra smooth for the longest time.

  27. Ovation Cell Therapy is the best. My hair feels awesome, soft, healthy, and it’s growing!

  28. Erica

    VO5 Green Tea Mint Therapy

  29. Ali

    Oooh I’m seeing a lot of people like the same products I do! I love TIGI, Redken, and Pureology. Those are normally the brands I stick with. I don’t really have a favorite, but right now I’m using TIGI’s Catwalk Fashionista. It’s awesome. :)

  30. I don’t use hairconditioners anymore because I’ve dreadlocks but I used to love John Frieda

  31. Aveda Color Conserve – the regular conditioner and the strengthening treatment.

  32. Luda

    WEN conditioner – LOVE IT

  33. Cassykins

    I’m currently partial to Lush’s Retread conditioner. It’s a little confusing for me to use as it doesn’t feel like anything while it’s in (other conditioners feel a little slimy while in and then you rinse them) but I like the results so far (about 2 months)

  34. lesleykat

    Neutrogena’s triple moisture deep recovery hair mask.

    i use it once a week after i shampoo with nexxus aloe rid. the shampoo clarifies and strips all the gunk/products out and the conditioner brings it all back to life.

  35. Rio

    The stuff that comes in the hair dye box! I believe the brand I buy is L’Oreal. You can buy the conditioner separately now, but I have never needed to since I have short hair that grows really fast. I always need to redye before I run out of conditioner!

  36. Stephanie

    LUSH’s Veganese is the best i’ve tried. its not heavy which is important to me

  37. Corrinne

    Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose if your hair is thick, coarse/curly, and dry!! Moisturizes and makes the hair soooooo soft with out using any silicones!

  38. Vyki

    Pantene, Time Renewal Intensive Conditioner. It comes in a little pot, and its absolutely fantastic, makes your hair really soft sleek and frizzless, without weighing it down or making it greasy. Wouldnt use it on every single wash though, as it makes hair a bit flat and limp if overused, but good for at least every other wash

    • Gia

      Pantene, Dove, Suave, Vo5, Garnier, & Herbel Essences RUIN your hair!
      They have wax in them, that actually destroys your hair!
      Pantene is the worst for it.
      I use to use it too, and it makes it sosososo soft & silky, but that feel is caused by wax :(
      I stopped using it immediately after I heard that on the view.
      The best products for your hair are Paul Mitchell, Redken, & salon products.

      My fav is all soft (in the yellow bottle) by Redken, <3 it :)

  39. Wen cleansing conditioner, but it’s the shampoo it’s both! I have been using it’s for almost a year it’s been wonderful I no longer shampoo my hair I use wen the cleansing conditioner and leave it in after rinse it out put a little more in but not rinse all that out and I am done! It’s perfect for tender headed people like me! I am a Wen girl! I do not shampoo like I said before I do the wen thing and it’s great! Everyone should try it!!

    anything l’anza (color treated hair), bain de terre, perfect ten, and vo5 :3
