this does the trick

Comments about Paul Mitchell Original The Detangler:

I have long fine hair and lots of it, and it tangles and knots so easily, in addition to having a very oily scalp. I've tried practically every product out there. Conditioners weigh down my hair and many cause oiliness. This product does the trick! I'm able to actually get a comb through my hair after my shower.

    Comments about Paul Mitchell Original The Detangler:

    I used to swear by this conditioner when I first started using it but after a few months it stopped leaving my hair soft and shiny. I decided to try something different since my hair had already gotten used to this product. Well a good 5 conditioner rotations and I am back! I love it again, it leaves my hair smooth, easy to detangle and shiny. Since I learned my lesson from the last time i am now alternating between conditioners. I really do love this product. I know a lot of people have poor opinions of PM products but I really love this one and the price isn't too crazy.

      My Granddaughter has Very Long Thick Curly hair. We've tried many, many products and this is the only product we've found that helps with detangling while bathing. I will admit there's not much lather and the smells not the best but We LOVE this product and will continue to purchase it!!

            Did not help detangle my daughter's hair. It's really thick so maybe we need to bring out the big guns

                    Comments about Paul Mitchell Original The Detangler:

                    I've been a user of Paul Mitchell products for years but the last few purchases I've made have been sadly disappointing. The company must have made changes to the formula. The rich lather I used to get isn't there anymore. It doesn't detangle like it did before and the pleasant scent it had is gone. This product used to be worth spending the extra money for. This is no longer the Paul Mitchell I knew and loved.

                        The detangler can be used as a conditioner. After shampooing, apply a small amount and work through. Rinse.
