What does it do?
Brilliant for any hair type, but is especially helpful for those sensitive to fragrance. Works as a daily moisturising, smoothing, and detangling conditioner that leaves even highly textured, coarse, color-treated hair looking soft, shiny, and easy to manage.

How to use

After shampooing, apply conditioner, focusing on the dry parts of your scalp and hair. Leave on for 1-2 minutes, then rinse well. For dry, coarse hair that needs deeper conditioning, leave on hair for as long as possible. May be used as a leave-in conditioner.

Great for frizzy hair without weighing hair down

5

I have super curly hair, not coils thought, and if you have curly hair you have super dry hair. I have used expensive deep treatments which I thought were working until I would go to the salon and they would mention how I really needed to start using good hair care because my hair is just sooo dry (except they didn't know I already was)...... Now I use Paulas Choice shampoo and conditioner and my hair and scalp have never felt better, cleaner, softer and bouncy.....best I have ever used I follow with Living Proof hair stylers to keep with the lightweight, clean feel of the shampoo and conditioner and I love the results

I keep coming back to this

For my dry, fine, curly hair this is a god-send. It does a fabulous job without weighing down my hair one bit. I keep trying other shampoos and conditioners and they are good, but Paula's are better and less expensive. My hair looks its best when I just shampoo and condition with these, then let it air dry naturally with no other products at all. My curls aren't weighed down and can bounce softly. No other shampoo and conditioner leave my hair quite that nice.

really really good conditioner...better than high end lines

5

I live in the high desert and this product I use (small amount) as a leave in conditioner for my thick, curly hair. This is the best product I have used and I have used several high end - kerastase, purology and other samples. None work as good as this product and it really does only take a small amount. Always have this product Paula!

Great Conditioner

5

This is such a good product for my hair type. It made my hair really shiny and gave my curls beautiful shape. I only wish my hair wasn't so long so it would have lasted longer. Towards the end of the bottle, I was just using it as a leave-in conditioner to make it last longer.

First conditioner I've actually wanted to use regularly

This conditioner makes a very noticeable difference for my fine, straight, now-partially-gray hair. It's an easy 5 stars for being an effective, straightforward kind of product without any downsides, at least for my hair and skin type. At 34 I have natural Mr. Fantastic white sideburns and a lot of the same coarser, graying hair mixed in with and hiding under the dark blond, and I've been trying to be good about using a conditioner to help the gray hair blend better with the rest, but I tend to skip the step because A) almost every drugstore conditioner is heavily fragranced and B) I honestly couldn't tell the difference 5 minutes after showering. This product somehow makes my hair much softer and fluffier. I actually look forward to this step and my nose and scalp are grateful for the lack of fragrance.

I was skeptical to try it but I love this conditioner!

I'm always skeptical about any conditioner, because I've tried so many over the course of my life that are marketed for fine/thin/limp hair and yet fail miserably. They made my hair feel greasy/slimy, coarse/waxy, or did nothing to detangle. (If you have fine/thin hair, you know the tangles....) This conditioner is better than any I've ever tried from a drugstore or salon, and I'm so relieved to have found it! It detangles but doesn't weigh my hair down. A little goes a long way, too: I dispense maybe a nickel-sized amount and that's all I need!

I was REALLY skeptical that I'd like this product. I have very fine/thin hair, and it's hard to find a conditioner that won't weigh it down, make it greasy looking from the silicone, or just put a weird waxy coating on it. This conditioner is better than any I've found in the drugstore or the salon! No single product works for everyone, but if your hair is like mine give it a shot.

The only one I want.

I appreciate this conditioner is unscented and I have been using it for 15-ish years. It does what it is supposed to do: detangles my hair, leaves my wavy frizzy hair soft and shiny with no build up. If my hair feels extra dry, I just use more than usual. I try different products from time to time. Never stick with them. Don't want to be without this conditioner.

Yippee for fragrance-free. I love that I don't have to try & escape the fumes of cheap perfume! Is it just me, or are the perfumes in shampoo & conditioner getting worse? Both PC shampoo & this conditioner make my thick hair look healthier & shinier. Paula, please make a shine serum for hair that won't cause breakouts.
