      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.

          Have bought many times this product. It's the only conditioner I buy regardless of the shampoo I use. Great product. It does much more than detangle. I buy it for its smoothing properties

          Comments about Paul Mitchell Original The Detangler:

          This stuff is weightless. I personally prefer to shampoo with Paul Mitchell Awapui shampoo first then apply a quater size dollop of The Detangler and work it through with a wide tooth comb and thoroughly rinse in cold water. Leaves your hair soft, siljy and shiny. GREAT STUFF PAUL MITCHELL! !KUDOS!!

              I first tried The Detangler while staying at a hotel and loved the way it conditioned my fine hair without weighing down my hair or leaving a greasy residue. Best conditioner I've found for my short, dyed, fine hair.

                I love this Conditioner! It's light and it gets the job done! When using this product, I don't feel like I added another 5 pounds to my head. I don't like thick conditioner. But anyways, it smells amazing and my hair isn't a static frenzy the next day. Love it!

                  I reacently switched from Matrix hydrosource detangling solution. I prefer that detangler over this one. Since I switched my hair is frizzier, and more brittle. My hair type is more on the corse/dry side and this just isn't doing it for me.

                    First used this product while on vacation because it was provided by the hotel chain and I LOVED IT!! As soon as I came home I went to Ulta to purchase and have been using ever since. My hair is very, very thick and fairly curly and when washed it gets very tangled and knotted especially in the back. With other conditioners I have to use a large amount to get it to detangle, but with this product I use a regular amount and my hair instantly detangles and it feels wonderfully soft. Best product ever!!!

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