So I got the Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Conditioner and I was pretty impressed with it. The bottle size is smaller then the cleanser and that is the only reason I gave this a 4 star review. I have such long hair and I use conditioner faster then cleanser. The only good thing about the size is if I ordered two it would probably run out the same time as the cleanser. I always buy two conditioners typically when I find I like a product so I have enough. Compared to other conditioners I have used in the past I truly think I like this one a lot more. First I have long hair but it is not thick. it is long and straight as ever. I also leave my conditioner on as long as I can before I rinse it with cold water. Water as cold as your ex!!! Super cold so it is the last part of my shower or bath. In my garden tub I can run cold as ice water while still sitting in warmer water so that is what I mean by doing it as well in the bath. So I usually use a wide mouth comb as well to comb through my hair before I rinse and freeze my booty off. I wanted to make the process clear so you know why I am saying what I am. Now, I used the conditioner and again the smell was soft and light. I like strong smells too but to avoid extra in my hair I'm good with a lighter smell. I also use products typically that end up smelling as well so there's a lot going on for the senses. To be fair and try it out I left the product out and also allowed my hair to dry naturally. This is where this stuff wins in my book, My hair was soft immediately after rinsing and has been every use. Not only that but when my hair dries it doesn't leave behind a weird sticky like residue like other conditioners I have used. I'm talking about when I let my hair air dry by the way. Also typically if I let my hair air dry I don't use product so I know the residue is from my shampoo and conditioning products. This one doesn't leave my hair looking completely lifeless when it air dries either! Its honestly so shocking to me I feel like I am going over board on how well I like this stuff!!! The smell of this one is nice, its not floral or strong, its just fresh smelling and light as I mentioned above. To me I like that because the smell was not terrible like some all natural, vegan or whatever. I like that they have what the say is a performance driven vegan formula. It is free from micro plastic, mineral oil, parabens and silicones. And Cruelty-free, I like seeing that on the actual product myself not just assuming that all things are, as in my opinion they should be. I am not vegan by any means but I do like to help the environment in any way I can. The bottle is a blue which I am assuming helps you keep the different lines they offer separate and I like that a lot as well. I did not have to remove some crazy hard plastic covering over the bottle opening either, while my hands are already wet and I forgot to do it before hopping in the shower! S annoying so again something little but I liked and noticed. Instructions and such on the back are simple and easy to read. Over all I'd say they have a really good product here and im excited to try the Glow line next!!!
I have super thick, somewhat coarse hair that frizzes easily so conditioner is very important to me. I received a full size bottle of both shampoo and conditioner to try in exchange for an honest review and the first thing I noticed, the regular sized conditioner is smaller than the shampoo bottle. This automatically turns me off since my hair soaks up conditioner while I only use a quarter size amount of shampoo on a regular basis.
Sizing aside, first thought on the conditioner was I liked the smell. It wasn't a strong smell, but a definite mango aroma was detectable. The texture was nice and creamy and I used the same amount of product I usually need to, so I felt it applied to my hair nicely.
The real test of course is after I blow dried. While my hair didn't frizz up which is a good size, I didn't feel like it looked as soft as I normally get with my current super moisturizing product. When looking in the mirror, I can tell my hair is still somewhat dry and not as smooth. So while the product is okay, it's not something I would seek out in the future.

Bought both the shampoo and conditioner. 1-star because it smells amazing! They made my hair greasy close to my scalp. I used as directed, did experiments where I let it air dry and tried blow drying. Used my husbands 2 in 1 this morning and hair is back to normal. I will be returning.

I found this conditioner to have good slip and used it in conjunction with the hydrate shampoo, repair mask, hydrate lotion and mousse. This line leaves my hair so soft and so hydrated. My hair gets very frizzy living in the Deep South and I have to say it cuts it back 75%. I have shoved all my other curly hair products aside in favor of this product line.
Cayla from Ca
I love this conditioner! It smells so good and clean, the formula is thicker and leaves my hair so soft.
Julie from MI
This stuff is super thick and leaves my hair feeling super soft and manageable. The smell is amazing and lasts all day. My only complaint is that the pumps that ULTA sells for jumbo bottles do not fit these bottles. The neck is too wide. This makes for awkward use in the shower.

I received this product complimentary from Authentic Beauty Concept. It makes your hair soft and smells really great. I like how it's not sticky but the bottle looks smaller in person but good for damage hair.
Ty from Houston
my hair is very dry from being processed to death. I leave this on like a mask while I shower and my hair has been so much more manageable and smooth.

I'm always looking for new hair care products that use ingredients that don't contain sulphates, silicones, etc. This company makes some great products, and they try to be conscious of what they put in their products. They smell great and work great as well. The only problem I have with this conditioner is that it has some alcohols in the product that can be drying on some hair types. If they want to keep people who are concerned with ingredients using their product, they should pick a less drying alcohol.

I have now used the conditioner for about a month now. I have really curly hair and this seems to make my hair even curlier . It seems as if my hair is growing faster with this shampoo and conditioner.
Lisa from Middletown, IN
I really liked this shampoo and conditioner! It left my hair feeling soft and moisturized. It has a lovely scent and my hair was easy to comb through out of the shower. Love it!
spicyk from Tx
The conditioner feels good on the hair when used. When I first saw the bottle, I thought the top passage was going to be wide but I love that the hole is small which definitely allows the right amount to be used. I really like the moisture that it adds to the hair at the moment of washing. However, that moisture quickly fades away and I wish it lasted longer on my natural hair. The scent of this free sample is also refreshing.
Chrissy from NYC
I used this product and I recently dyed my hair and it didn't seem to give my hair the moisture it needed. I recommend testing with your hair type before committing.
Christina from Richmond, VA
I loved that the Beauty Concept Hydrate Conditioner hydrated and also nourished at the same time without overly making my hair oily and sticky! I also have color treated hair so I need that extra moisture without making my hair too oily!
SShoeMom from Illinois
Ok. So after using the shampoo I had an allergic reaction so of course I chose not to use the conditioner for those reasons. The conditioner had a light citrus scent and was what I consider a thicker consistency. Pretty bummed I couldn't use it.
acjones from Hudson Valley, New York
I received this product complimentary via Bzzkit. The products really work great together but I don't believe that they are good for my specific hair type. I have 4b/4c type hair. I really think that these products are better suited for someone with straight or wavy hair.
Ashley from Washington, DC
This is a really nice, hydrating conditioner that smells SO good! My hair and scalp both feel soft and moisturized. My hair is very soft, shiny and bouncy after using this. My scalp is very prone to dryness but after using this conditioner it feels hydrated and really nice. I love that there are no sulfates in this conditioner. I used this in combination with the matching shampoo. I can't get over how amazing it smells!
RareGem31 from Texas
Conditioner is not as thick. It got the job done. Left my hair really soft.
Aml1982 from Hephzibah,GA
I like how soft and moisturized the Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Conditioner left my hair feeling. The product isn't super thick but it's not watery either.
Eva from Atlanta Ga
I absolutely love the Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Conditioner. I washed my hair with the Hydrate Cleanser first then used this conditioner. I have kinky curly hair and it felt like it wrapped every curl in moisture!!
Kathleen from Texas
All the way from the packaging to the product it's self this product is amazing. I love how simplified it all is. And best yet it definitely hydrated my hair, didn't leave any build up and smells so amazing.
