Most Helpful Positive Review Remarkably impressed with a great conditioner!
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner! After being a bit wary about trying out this conditioner, I was very impressed with the results. I have very fine, thin hair, and I only used volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I need all the help I can get when it comes to giving my hair any ounce of volume.
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner that the Stellar Product Testing Company sent me claims it helps transform your hair to look smooth and full of shine. The word "smooth" is what scared me because, to me, smooth means straight and sleek. Was I wrong!
From the first time I added this conditioner to my hair washing routine, I instantly felt how it made my hair feel soft. It lathered nicely, and it actually felt fresh! It has avocado oil and green tea, and it smells very good too! I preceded the conditioning with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Shampoo.
I have been using volumizing shampoo/conditioner for as long as I can remember. Whenever I get out of the shower, I instantly feel my hair knotty and I need to run a comb thru it immediately before it dries. The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner, did not make my hair knotty at all! My hair stayed smooth and sleek after towel drying! I was able to let it air dry after that without ever having to run a comb thru it! Having to eliminate this step has been great. Any extra time, as a mom, is great!
I have used this conditioner daily from the day I received it, and in just 10 days, there is a noticeable difference (see attached pictures). My hair looks so much healthier now than it ever did! It was very easy to add to my everyday shower routine. One day, I accidentally used my usual shampoo, and it's unbelievable how I instantly knew I had grabbed the wrong shampoo. My hair felt dry, knotty, and it did not lather like John Frieda. I quickly washed it out and used the John Freida Haircare Detox & Repair shampoo and conditioner, and it instantaneously felt better!
I really loved this conditioner, and paired with the shampoo, it feels refreshing and amazing! I would most definitely purchase this conditioner and continue using it! Thank you, Stellar Product Testing Panel, for providing me with the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner and giving my hair the extra care it needs. This is one great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for daily use if need volume
To start, I have long dark hair, generally thin and flat. ?I don't usually have issues with my hair except for the usual greasiness if I go more than a few days between washes.??I've been using this John Frieda Detox & Repair Conditioner (along with the shampoo) for a few weeks with 3-4 washes per week.
The GOOD: ?Product smells awesome, just like the shampoo. Since my hair has been more dry lately, with winter and pregnancy, I have a tendency to wake up to a tangled mess that's difficult to comb through. I feel like the conditioner has helped to detangle my hair really well - I don't run into as many knots when combing my hair in the morning since I started using this product. It definitely feels nourishing and moisturizing when I use it in the shower.
The NOT-SO-GOOD: ?I have to use a good amount of the product to feel like I've put a good coating on my hair, so it's definitely not something where a little goes a long way. While it seems to have been great at controlling my dry flyaways, I also feel like it has weighed my hair down more than I would like. Since I have thin hair, it's important to me to use products that gives my hair more volume instead of making it more heavy-feeling. My hair also seems to get oily a little faster.
Overall, this is a nice conditioner to pair with the detox & repair shampoo but not something I would choose to use everyday.

Over the last 4 years, my hair chemistry has changed drastically thanks to all of the hormones related to having babies! My two beautiful boys have left me with not so beautiful looking or feeling hair, even though it's been dyed a pretty color. I would wash my hair and it didn't even feel like I washed it because of whatever product and oil build up I had, it was embarrassing! I've been trying to stick to a regime of washing my hair every 2-3 days to help preserve my hair color. So I've been on the hunt for a product that will allow me to keep to that schedule and still have my hair feeling great.
In January, I received a this conditioner to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and it's been a game changer for my hair! I apply it once a week after I wash my hair. My hair today looks more healthy and it's smooth than it did a month ago. It's shiny, but not because of oil! Not only does my hair look great, but it smells amazing too! I definitely continue to use this is in my hair care routine.

I typically stick to my preferred shampoo and conditioner, but noticed my hair was feeling frizzy and dry. I was excited to try the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to try and bring life back to my hair without going to the salon. After my first time using the shampoo and conditioner my hair instantly (yes, instantly in the shower!) felt silky and smooth. The smell was very relaxing and I really enjoyed it. After washing my hair with these products, I did not have any trouble combing through my hair like I typically do. My hair stayed soft and smooth until my next wash. I used these products at least twice a week to "detox" my hair. It was a pretty simple way to make my hair feel shiny and great. I would definitely buy these again! I received these products through the Stellar Product Testing Panel.
Love this conditioner
AmyD from Cincinnati, OH
This smells great and leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth. My hair is generally frizzy and dry, but I found that after using this conditioner my hair looks much shinier and I don't have to deal with the dry, brittle ends I usually have.
JessiKate from New York
I was given this conditioner to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My initial impression of the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner was the bottle was visually pleasing. The simple design with earthy green tones matched their 'detox' advertised purpose. That being said, I was surprised how perfumey and chemically it smelled. I expected a light, natural scent, especially with the avocado and green tea listed.
In using it, it felt thinner than my usual conditioner and required more to get complete coverage of my thick, wavy, shoulder length hair. I also did get the slimey feel with it in my hair that I usually associate with a good conditioner.
As a curly haired girl, I tend to wash my hair 1-2 times a week. After using the conditioner, I did not see or notice a difference, even after 6 washes. I honestly expected more out of the John Frieda Conditioner, it usually higher ended and more expensive than I usually buy. I would not purchase this conditioner.
Shiny, Silky hair
Casey M from Maryville, TN
I received a sample of this conditioner from the Stellar Product testing panel. What I liked most about this conditioner was that it left my hair feeling silky even after the product was washed out. If this product is reasonably priced, I will be purchasing it to replace my current conditioner. It also has a nice, non-overpowering scent that I really enjoyed.
annag from Boulder, CO
I have to use conditioner, I have a ton of long fine wavy hair and without it, everything is frizzy and I can barely pull a brush through to detangle everything. I started using this a couple of weeks ago and have used it two or three times a week pretty liberally. It's good stuff! My hair is smooth, the product smells good without being overwhelming, and I'm not seeing a dull buildup. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this conditioner.
Sishelley1 from Madison, Wisconsin
I received this product from the stellar product testing panel, and my hair is thanking me! I had my 3rd baby 7 months ago, and ever since I feel like my hair has been dull, and breaking a lot more. I started using this as soon as it arrived every other day and noticed that within days my scalp felt way less dry and my hair looked shinier. I even let it air dry a few times and it dried so nicely (normally my hair is so frizzy and my scalp super dry when I do that). I'm excited to keep using this product on my hair, and am so pleased with how it really rejuvenated it. It's been about 2 weeks, and I'm loving the outcome!
Not For Me
TheMorrighan from Baltimore, MD
I really liked the smell of this conditioner. It was a nice subtle scent and didn't have a heavy chemical smell to it. After my hair had dried, my hair felt clean and smoother. I have had it for a little over a week now, and have used it 4 times.
However, the downside for me is that my hair is very picky about what I use on it. Sadly this product did not work well with my hair type. It caused my hair to become greasy a lot quicker than I typically experience. I may need to use it as a complement to other products perhaps once every other week or so. Hopefully it works better on other hair types, but mine is not one of them. I would likely not purchase this in the future.

I received the John Frieda Haircare Detox and Repair Care conditioner from Stellar Product Testing Panel for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I was very excited to have the opportunity to try out a new shampoo and conditioner as I have been struggling to find one that works for me! I found this conditioner to be wonderful! I am always sold first on how the product smells and as far as this one goes I just can't get enough! I used this shampoo and conditioner set about 3 times a week for two weeks. This conditioner left my hair feeling extremely smooth and silky! I normally have very fine hair that is prone to looking greasy with heavy conditioners but had zero issues with this one! I was impressed that my hair could feel so smooth and avoid looking greasy by the end of the day. I would definitely recommend this conditioner to those looking to help with the smoothness of their hair! I'm hoping I can easily find this shampoo and conditioner at my local stores so that I can buy it in the future!
Saved dry winter hair
Mallie18 from Denver, CO
I began using the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Conditioner after coming home from a winter vacation in the mountains on a ski trip. My hair took a beating in the dry, cold climate and I was prepared to have to get a few inches cut from my hair to even salvage the dry, frizz that was covering the top of my head. But after receiving this product from the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I immediately broke the seal of this Shampoo and put it to work my first day home. Instantly after the shower my hair felt smoother and tamer. I decide to give it 3 more washes before I booked my hair appointment because I am desperately trying to grow out my hair for some spring time weddings and events I have coming. By using both the shampoo and the conditioner together, I can honestly say my hair looks much silkier, calmed my frizz completely and I don't feel the need to cut any amount of hair. It really has restored my hair. I am now wanting to look into more John Frieda products I was that impressed with the Detox & Repair conditioner! I also read the instructions and it said from root to tip and I did just that and it did not weight down my hair like most conditioners do. My hair really improved when I was able to really let the conditioner sit longer in my hair before washing out.
TattooedMom from Snohomish WA
I received this conditioner from the Stellar Parent Panel. Super excited to use it being the first time I've had high quality salon grade hair products. Noticed after first use my hair was immensely softer. Frizz also decreases. Unfortunately my hair has become greasy much quicker from the conditioner. Day after washing instead of a couple days. Worth it for the repair qualities but probably not best an every time use when using the shampoo.
Pilotwife5 from Lehi, UT
I didn't know what to expect from this conditioner, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it didn't weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy. My hair was soft and had volume- without putting any other product in. It felt nourished and the conditioner smells great! I used this every time I washed my hair, which is multiple times a week, and there was zero buildup, which is typically a problem with conditioners for me- in fact my scalp felt better! I will be buying this in the future for sure! I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and am a converted John Frieda fan now!
Clean & Smooth
H Finn from New York
There are a lot of options when it comes to hair care products and it can be so overwhelming trying to decide on which brand or style to go with. This time around I didn't have to choose. I was given the opportunity to test the Detox & Repair Shampoo & Conditioner from Stellar Product Testing Panel!!
I have pretty much always been low maintenance when it comes to my fine, curly, frizzy, brown, shoulder length, pony tail wearing, hair regimne. As I inch closer to the 40 mark things have gotten a bit more complicated in this department! The grays are multiplying, which then leads to more frequent dyes and coloring and damage, on my already fragile locks. I've used these products two times thus far & I am very pleased with the results. The shampoo left my hair feeling clean and smooth, not dry or slick which I admire. The conditioner, which for me is most essential, is GOOD stuff! I left it on for 1-2 minutes, rinsed and finished up my shower. As my hair air dried it felt soft & curly versus the normal instant frizz mop. I used a small amount of anti-frizz / heat protection serum & started up the blowdryer. I had gone to my cousins baby shower along with my 4 year old daughter & other family. The results, my hair had a dash of volume, it felt smooth & light & stayed that way ALL day long, despite mother natures' rain, snow & wind. My sister in law was impressed that I didn't go with my normal ponytail do & complimented my lovely locks. She is a tough critic! I will continue to use the Detox & Repair products & look forward to trying their other goods! Try It!!

Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me this free conditioner in exchange for my honest review! This John Frieda Detox & Repair conditioner is going to be a new staple for me. I'm usually pretty skeptical when it comes to shampoos that make claims regarding repairing damaged hair but this conditioner didn't disappoint. I love the way it smells, it's a lovely tropical scent that isn't too overwhelming. I was able to feel a difference in my hair after just one wash and condition. I let my hair air dry for about 15 minutes and then I blow dry it the rest of the way and it resulted it very shiny, soft, manageable hair. It was very light and didn't make my hair feel like it had lots of product on it. My hair most definitely felt refreshed. I used this conditioner 4 times so far, and will definitely be purchasing this to use in the future. It was very easy to add to my wash&go routine, and the bonus is that it's safe on color-treated hair.
Amazing Conditioner for Dry Hair
npappas from undisclosed
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner was amazing for my dry hair. After only one use my hair was softer, and I couldn't stop running my hands through it. I used the shampoo every other day for a week. The first picture was taken prior to using the conditioner, and the second picture is the end result. This is definitely a conditioner I would purchase in the future. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner.
Stronger and More Manageable Results
elusiveshoe from Oklahoma City, OK
After just one use, my hair was noticeably more manageable than with my previous leave-in conditioner, requiring minimal, if any, product to style my hair. After a couple of days of use, I no longer needed additional products with the exception of rainy/high humidity days. It was an easy swap into my daily routine and left my hair not only feeling softer and stronger but had a nice subtle smell that was very pleasant.
Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for the ability to try out this John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner.
Good repairing conditioner
Bktemp28 from Tucson, AZ
I used this product with its counterpart for about two weeks now. Results were pretty quick for me. My hair was less tangled and more smooth after the very first wash. My hair is very particular about product, so using this product more than twice a week actually makes my hair look greasy. This is not a downside in my opinion unless you are hoping to use this daily. It has a good oil content to repair hair damage which is what it is for. The scent is very subtle and likeable. Overall I would definately continue to use and purchase this in the future. I did receive this product for free to review as part of the stellar product testing panel, but my thoughts and experiences are my own.
Smooths and Detangles!
Lucky11too from CA
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was able to try out the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner. It had a pleasant scent and I found the conditioner to instantly make my hair softer and smoother. My hair also detangled easier post-shower. Unlike the shampoo, but I would purchase this conditioner again.
Something to add to your haircare routine.
brimason26 from Aiken, SC
I must admit I am a sucker for anything with green tea in it. Since taking my hair extensions out 3 years ago I have struggled with repairing my hair. I have tried a crazy amount of different shampoo and conditioners! I am always looking for the best products to add to my routine! First of all, Detox & Repair by John Frieda smells amazing! After using once my hair already feels much softer and incredibly smooth. It looks revitalized for sure. Thank you Stellar Product Testing Panel! I will definitely be buying more!
Great Conditioned Hair
Kaebellasmom13 from New Hampshire
I've been on the hunt for something that really conditions my hair without weighing it down, and feeling brassy since I have thick hair often products make my hair feel awful and this truly made it feel soft and clean and I'm very impressed with it. A little really goes a long way. Definitely will get more and share to those around me!
I recieved this product through Stellar Product Testing Panel, regardless all thoughts are my own.
A+ on the repair care
Melissw1981 from Aurora, IL
The John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner really came through on the promise to provide repair care for my hair! I have very long hair (down to my waist) and it is overdue for a cut. This conditioner definitely helped make hair look and feel soft & smooth. Even on the days I used my usual shampoo & conditioner, my hair still was softer. I will still use my usual brand of shampoo & conditioner because I prefer to use one made for blonde hair most days. However, I will most definitely incorporate the John Frieda Haircare Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner into my routine 1-2 times a week.

Smells amazing, works great
Msappin2 from Missouri
This conditioner is great. I used it daily along with the shampoo. Noticed a difference in my hair within the first few uses. It felt healthier, shinier and fuller. I did receive this product thru the stellar product testing panel and will continue to buy the product in the future. Left my hair soft and smooth and it smells amazing. Love it.
mommyoffour from Pickerington, OH
I received this product from the Stellar Testing Panel. I love love love this conditioner. I used it along with the shampoo and it made my hair so soft and bouncy and shiny. I usually use a different brand but I think I will switch between both brands now. I could not believe how soft my hair felt after using it. I do not wash my hair everyday, I wash it every week because I have ethnic hair but I cannot believe how manageable and soft it made it.

I am a mom of many, I have zero time for myself. My makeup gets put on in the car and I haven't known fashion since I was a teenager. It's okay, this is who I want to be right now, but I have to remind myself that self care is important. This new John Frieda Detox & Repair Care & Protect Conditioner has been a lovely addition to my hectic routine. I don't a ton of care products in my shower, I have three bottles only, body wash and my shampoo and conditioner. These bottles have taken their stance and my normal hair bottles have been put away. At first I wasn't impressed with them to be honest, after my shower I was able to brush my hair as usual and move on with my day. It wasn't until this morning I touched my hair and took pause, it was so soft! We were rushing out the door and I had to brush through my hair while on the go. I left the house with a comb instead of my usual brush and I was able to comb my hair, completely one handed in about two minutes. I was completely shocked and this conditioner may be my new bff.
The scent is very similar to my husband's body wash with a bit heavier citrus kick, not what I would normally want to smell myself. This is the only area I find that could be adjusted. Surprisingly, it leaves no lingering scent once your hair is dry. My husband gave this a try and was shocked at how soft his hair was but with no residue or hint of oil. I think I'll be having to buy this twice as much as I was expecting as I won't be the only one using it!
Julie C from NC
I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel in exchange for my honest feedback. I have very fine hair and was quite skeptical about using this product. "Detox" shampoos/conditioners I've used in the past have always left my hair feeling coarse, but this product was totally different! I used it in combination with the John Frieda Detox & Repair shampoo and my hair was left softer than ever! It also smells wonderful.
