If you’ve been following my blog for the past few months, you’ll know that I’ve been doing a lot of really terrible things to my hair lately, like stripping the color, bleaching, and re-dyeing. And as much as I’ve been loving the Carol’s Daughter line of hair care lately, I just didn’t think the conditioner was heavy enough to repair all the damage I’d done. So I picked up this conditioner by Sauce Beauty at Sally’s for $10. It’s a small bottle at 10 fl. oz, but it’s well worth the cost, and you won’t find yourself running out of the product too quickly.
Right off the bat, I LOVE the smell. It smells like a banana-scented bubble bath (Describing smells is still not my strong point, apparently…), and the smell will linger in your hair for the better part of the day, which in this case I definitely appreciate.
The conditioner is REALLY thick, but somehow easily spreadable in your hair. I usually wet my hair first, apply this conditioner, and wash it out after it’s been sitting on my hair for a minute. It makes your hair feel incredibly smooth even while you’re still washing your hair, and long after you’ve hopped out of the shower. Combing through is a breeze. In fact, this is one of the only conditioners that I ever felt like my hair was still smooth and tangle-free a few hours after washing.
I think my biggest gripe with this product is the combination of the thickness of this conditioner, and the bottle that it’s in. The conditioner is incredibly thick, and having a smooth-plastic, triangle-shaped bottle makes it really difficult to squeeze out.
This conditioner has a lot of great features and ingredients, too. It’s color-safe: this conditioner sulfate, paraben, and drying-alcohol free. The banana, honey and coconut are relatively high up on the ingredient listing also. I personally have sensitivity to coconut on both my regular skin and my scalp, but I didn’t feel that this bothered me at all (still, with that being said, if you have a coconut oil sensitivity, just be mindful of this product).
All in all this is a fantastic conditioner at an amazing price point. Considering everything I’ve put my hair through, it’s a lot healthier than I would have expected — I think I owe most of that to this conditioner. ~A
