Herbal Essences Hydra­li­cious Self Tar­get­ing Con­di­tion­er!

Ladies take note that most of the­se posts are ref­er­enc­ing cheap­ie con­di­tion­ers, lol.

Herbal Essence Total­ly Twist­ed! Every time I try some­thing else I look long­ing­ly at my Total­ly Twist­ed and say “Why did I ever doubt you!” LOL


White Rain Coconut Con­di­tion­er 33oz = $1
VO5 Mois­ture Milks 12oz = $1
Alba Botan­i­cal Leave-In Con­di­tion­er 7.5 oz = $9


Kinky Kurly Knot Today lit­er­al­ly MELTS my tan­gles and has real­ly good slip. Aussie Moist 3 Min­ute Mir­a­cle lit­er­al­ly is a mir­a­cle lol. I don’t use it any more cause I’m going all nat­u­ral but it is amaz­ing for detan­gling in the show­er.


Tre­sem­me Nat­u­rals Con­di­tion­er! Stuff is crazy good and made me relate Suave to pre­poo.


Suave Almond and Shea But­ter!!!!!

But, dang it, I keep get­ting an itch to try Hel­lo Hydra­tion from Herbal Essences. I think I’ll hit up Tar­get.


Nature’s gate jojoba is amaz­ing! Great slip for 4c hair! Also leaves my hair feel­ing AWESOME


i guess i’ll be the odd man out. i think aubrey organ­ics white camelia con­di­tion­er does AMAZING things for my hair. it doesn’t help that i’m an aubrey addict either :-D


I just love Giovanni’s and also Elu­cence. You don’t need a lot for the pro­duct to work

Kinky Curly Knot Today and Oyin Hon­ey Hemp Con­di­tion­er are my fave detan­glers. Both are rel­a­tive­ly expen­sive, but they’re worth it because I can rec­og­nize all the ingre­di­ents with­out the help of a dic­tio­nary :)


HE’s Break’s Over Con­di­tion­er is the only one that works like a dream for my hair.


yes yall! Suave almond and shea is the shiz :)


Aussie Moist


I still like my Gio­van­ni. Haven’t tried HE Hel­lo Hydra­tion yet.


Gio­van­ni Smooth as silk con­di­tion­er. Great!!


Olive oil and Vo5 con­di­tion­er.

The love­ly bot­tle you’ve got up top. :)


I love Kinky Curly Knot Today. I would love Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Con­di­tion­er if it didn’t leave my hands quite so slick.


My hair has recent­ly start­ed tan­gling I’m on the hunt for a bet­ter detan­gling con­di­tion­er. I have a bot­tle of the Hel­lo Hydra­tion that I need retry.…and also heard about that Suave Almond and Shea but­ter being good.



Did the change the ingre­di­ents on YTC?!..i went to pur­chase about a mon­th ago and the Yes to Car­rots had a sil­i­cone list­ed in the itch­ing to try this but am attempt­ing to go the curly girl way..I use Gio­van­ni Smooth As Silk to detan­gle and I had no prob­lems and it leaves my hair super soft..


HE Hydro­li­cious just gives me hair life!!!!!!! I tried it for the first time yes­ter­day and it’s the best con­di­tion­er I’ve ever used for slip.. Bye Bye Aussie.. Hel­lo HE


VO5 mois­ture milk, Right On curl acti­va­tor and WATER, WATER, WATER


Suave humec­tant hands down; its cheap,moisturizes well (even once hair dries), thick,have a lot of slip and smells great

@beth, I love the suave pro­fes­sion­al line!!

@ all the hel­lo hydra­tion lovers- I have been dying to try but i just can­not seem to stray away from my suave and vo5 moister milk. 

@janique- i tries aussie moist and it does mois­tur­ize very well but every time I go to pur­chase condish suave is always on sale so i go with the cheap­est one since it does the same thing

great post


Vo5 Mouis­ture Milks, Lus­trasilk Shea But­ter! I have HE Hel­lo Hydra­tion, but I have yet to detan­gle with it, from the looks of things I’m going to have to try that.

Camille in Slovenia

Here in Europe I use Gar­nier Ultra Nat­u­rals Cran­bery & Argan Oil con­di­tion­er. I tried Hel­lo Hydra­tion but Gar­nier beats it by a mile.


I use Nature’s Gate Jojoba Con­di­tion­er to detan­gle. It has won­der­ful slip and has no cones.


OMG Janique. You said the two I was going to name. The Aussie Moist Con­di­tion­er and the Yes to Cucum­bers. I like YTC because it has great slip even though there are no cones in it. I also like the Suave Almond and Shea But­ter, but not as much as the first two I named.


I’m with Beth, Suave Nat­u­rals Almond and Shea but­ter con­di­tion­er has real­ly good slip and smells nice too!


Ren­pure Organ­ics My Pret­ty Hair is Parched con­di­tion­er is my hands down favorite for tra­di­tion­al detan­gling. How­ev­er, now that I deep con­di­tion and detan­gle before I wash my hair, I use lekair man­go cho­les­terol mixed with coconut oil. I’ll some­times add some thin con­di­tion­er like Ren­pure or TJ Nour­ish Spa to stretch the con­di­tion­er if my hair is espe­cial­ly tan­g­ly (like it was yes­ter­day, with 2 weeks worth of shed hair to clear out).


Trader Joe’s Nour­ish Spa Con­di­tion­er ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


hel­lo hydra­tion and VO5 mois­ture milks


I’m sor­ry ladies i’m a 70s baby!!! I have always used Queen Helene cho­les­terol con­dion­ter. My hair doesn’t respond well to any oth­er con­di­tion­er or detan­gler. I haven’t had a chance to try out Herbal Essence Hel­lo Hydra­tion. until i do, Queen helene is my fav!!!!
I love to use this pro­duct in the show­er with my den­man brush!


Hel­lo Hydra­tion is my fav cheap­ie. Fav for wash and gos. Kinky Curly Knot today is heav­en as well. AMAZING when used togeth­er! (one for cow­ash oth­er to mois­tur­ize)


So far noth­ing beats HE Hel­lo Hydra­tion. I’m just afraid using it for a pro­longed peri­od will make my hair too accus­tomed and then it will lose its pow­er.…


My favorite pro­duct is Pan­tene Pro-V con­di­tion­er. Oh I love it so much…and I know how some peo­ple feel about min­er­al oil, but this is the only con­di­tion­er that keeps my hair mois­tur­ized.


Hands down Suave Almond & Shea But­ter con­di­tion­er… it melts in my hair and soft­ens it so thor­ough­ly that detan­gling is a breeze :)


For me def­i­nite­ly Aussie Moist conditioner…the tan­gles just melt away. I also use Yes To cucum­bers con­di­tion­er. It detan­gles well too.


I love that you have a pho­to of Hel­lo Hydra­tion show­ing for this post, because that is exact­ly what I was going to sug­gest! I love Herbal Essence Hel­lo Hydra­tion!
