      Comments about Paul Mitchell Original The Conditioner:

      This has by far been the best product I've used on my hair. I have been natural for about nine years and in the last five, I have taken my natural hair journey a little more seriously. I was in the market for a leave in conditioner and I came across this one. I read the reviews and I was convinced (I do a lot of research, lol). After the first use, I was sold. It does everything (and more). Not only does it moisture but it also improves the texture of your hair. The scent is definitely unique but its not overbearing at all. Just to give you a visual, I have a 3 b/c curl pattern, so its a mixture of spiral curls and waves. Creams are not my hair's best friend, so anything that is water-based (which this product is) will definitely benefit you. Five years of use and no complaints. Just FYI: A little goes a long way and its better to moisturize in sections, so that way each strand receives an even amount.

        I have three biracial children with varying degrees of curliness to their hair. I have tried other products over the years just looking for a change, but I always come back to this. It's the perfect leave-in conditioner. Heavy enough to condition and define their curls, but feels light and leaves NO oily residue. I can even use it on my super-fine Caucasian hair. My family cannot live without it!

              This has been my go to conditioner for years. No need to rinse it out---that is wonderful. It's doesn't weigh your hair down and detangles. Have tried other brands but this is my favorite. Great for dry skin too!

                I have been using this one product in my hair for years. It provides enough hold to define the curl but not any stickiness or stiffness to prevent a natural look! It's awesome

                        I was very hesitant at first since this is my first time using a leave in conditioner, but I am now a believer. I was my hair every day and it does not make my hair super greasy. It has definitely helped with dry scalp and dry hair.

                          Does this product have the same scent as the Awapuhi Shampoo? I want a conditioner with that scent and this was the only one I could find that might go with the shampoo. I am also wondering if it comes in the same size as the shampoo.

                            Yes the scent is similar and comes in the same sizes. We also recommend Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Cream Rinse. It comes in 3.4 oz., 8.5 oz. and 33.8 oz. sizes.

                        • Q:

                          Is there a rinse out conditioner that pairs with PM The One and that smells the same (the coconut smell) or is this leave-in conditioner supposed to be it. Thanks!
