Most Helpful Positive Review Leaves hair a little dull but overall great frizz control
I had used this brands conditioner before on my wavy, dry hair and I don't know if they changed the formula or maybe the first time I got a bad sample but this one was sooo much better! Before it left my hair feeling gross and greasy like it never completely washed out even though I soaked it several times to be sure. Now, however, it's left my hair soft and with great frizz control. My hair is contained and not nearly as wild as anyone with curly hair knows the struggle! The bottle itself is very nicely made and the smell is great! It reminds me of a childhood scent, so I may be biased on that. I deducted a star because my hair didn't feel as moisturized as with my normal conditioner and looked kinda dull in color after using a few times. I use a pretty heavy duty moisturizing conditioner normally though, since my hair can get really dry so this may just be my hair. I started alternating between this conditioner and my ultra hydrating one and I now have a new routine!
Most Helpful Critical Review It smells pretty.
I was not aware of this product until I received a sample in the mail. I've been using the Kristin Ess Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner for about 2 weeks now, about 3 times a week. I don't wash my hair everyday. I notice that my hair is tangling up more then usual since I began using the Kristin Ess Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner. After each use, my hair really doesn't feel as soft and I'm not able to run my fingers through my hair while in the shower. Overall, the product smells great and my hair looks healthy. Just not sure why I'm now getting knots in my hair. At this point, I would not be able to recommend this product.
Reviewed by 48 customers Such a time saver!

I wasn't sure how this item would perform compared to my expensive salon brand, but I must say that I love this product. It works as a cleanser and conditioner in one bottle, which is such a time saver when I don't have time to wash and condition separately. It leaves me with soft, detangled hair and I don't feel like I have a heavy film on it. The price is very reasonable and the scent is fresh and light, not overly-perfumed like some other brands. (I'm very sensitive to scents, and anything too perfume-y gives me a headache). I highly recommend this product.

I've never used a co-wash before this one, and it is WONDERFUL. I don't use it every time I shower, but when I do it leaves my hair so soft and hydrated. I have thick, dry, easily damaged hair and this product is fantastic for it. My only note: be sure you read the directions! This does not work like a normal conditioner at all, so make sure you follow the instructions for best results. Would absolutely purchase again, especially at this price < 3
One use and I can see and feel the change!!
KristinK from DeLand, FL
I'm in shock! Please don't stop making this!! In one use, my fried hair looks so much better! It has shine, could comb through, and my waves look great!! This is magic!
It works well...
Cori from South Texas
It did take a few years to get used to the low suds and I used more than necessary at first. It cleanses my scalp and leaves my hair feeling full and bouncy. I did experience tangling so I added a conditioner from mid-length to the ends. (I have waist length hair) I have medium-course, not curly, not straight, unruly, frizzy hair. I also use a leave in conditioner on my ends.

ny granddauther is very happy
My one and only for daily use
C4gigi from VA
I use this daily after my workouts. I sweat and must wash my hair daily. This product has saved my hair. I have thick but fine texture hair that is wavy to curly depending on the humidity. This product makes my curls look soft, shiny and feel silky.
The product smells fantastic. It took me a couple of days to get used to low sudsing...but now I cannot see ever changing back. Love this product.
Incredible stuff—a new staple
Lou from Richmond, VA
I've been looking for a good cowash for a while and this is it. I have fine, long, loose-curling hair and this stuff is amazing
Great Overall Co-Wash
JenMP from Wyoming
I had been buying this elsewhere for a long time because Ulta seemed to only carry co-washes for curly hair that were too heavy for me. Glad to see them pick up this brand! I could use this almost daily and I have fairly fine hair. It's a lifesaver when I don't want to deal with tangles or am in a hurry. I will say that I'm in a very dry part of the U.S. so if you have fine hair and are in a humid area, it still might be too heavy for you. For the price, I would still give it a shot to be able to use it a couple times a week.
Susan from Undisclosed
I have colored treated hair and live in Florida. I have always had thick dry hair. So dry I could go a week without washing or using dry shampoo. I deal with frizz daily in Florida. I decided to give this product a try. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and my hair is amazing! Since last year, I had a patch of hair that went completely grey and became unruly. With this product, that area has disappeared! After using this , My hair is not frizzy and I only have to use a few passes with my flat iron. My hair hasn't felt this good in years! I highly recommend this product for thick, color-treated and frizzy hair. Kristen, don't stop making this product!
Nice but itchy
Hiba from Undisclosed
It feels nice and soft the first day of my shower but starts feeling itchy the next day and makes me have dandruff as well as making my scalp look oily
Love this for my straight hair!
Mc from Undisclosed
I don't have the type of hair that this product is made for. My hair is very straight and very oily. I have been trying for so long to train my hair to go a few days without shampoo, but my biggest problem is that when I go to sleep without freshly cleaned hair, I get a ton of breakouts. This product has allowed me to have a some shampoo-free days but still have clean hair! My hair doesn't feel quite as squeaky clean as when it's freshly shampooed, but it is so soft and feels fantastic, even though I can still feel my hair's natural oils. I am absolutely in love and so happy to have found this product!
I have found my favorite cleansing conditioner
Southern G. from Undisclosed
This stuff is great, I have natural wavy hair that is hard to maintain. Can get frizzy if wrong cleansing product is used. This stuff is amazing! Made my hair soft and manageable. I blow dry my hair straight. This made my hair soft and easier to blow dry. My hair looked sooo healthy. This is definitely going to be the only cleansing conditioner I use from now on. I was Leary of using it because of the price. Usually lower priced items are lower quality but no mama this is definitely high quality stuff for a reasonable price. Well done Kristin Ess. Thank you Thank you Thank you

The first time I used this, my friends husband asked if I did something new to my hair. I am shocked by how this has helped my frizzy, dull hair. The natural curls have come out!
Awful look afterwards
Lynn from Undisclosed
I have now tried this three times following the directions. I have actually never written a bad review but this is by far the worst product I've ever tried. I love the smell and I'm sad I don't like it. It left my hair looking extremely greasy like it's not been washed in months. It looks like there are a ton of great reviews so I think it depends on the hair type. Mine is dry so I thought it would be perfect. Nervous to try anymore of her products as this was my first.
Alicia27 from Undisclosed

Wow!!! Love it!!
Springgirl from Undisclosed
I have dry, frizzy hair that seems to have no bounce or life to it. i noticed a difference the first time I used the cleansing conditioner. My hair was softer, and didn't g et that stringy, fly away look. I have been using consistently for a little over a month and I have been getting compliments!!! on my hair. Great product!
I would buy again
Lyz L from Undisclosed
I always straighten my hair because all shampoo/conditioners I've tried weighs down my curl to much. This product is amazing and makes my curls bouncey and light weight.
Jennyboo from Undisclosed
Helos save time in the shower and a nice conditioner in dry winter months. Smells nice
I was shocked at how well this worked!
Echo from Undisclosed
I have very curly, dry & frizzy hair. I have spent up to 40$ on each bottle shampoo and conditioner trying to fix my hair. Kristen Ess Frizz Management Clensing conditioner fixed my hair in 3 uses!!!!!!!!! Every day that I use it my hair gets softer, more manageable and no more frizz. My curls are defined and actually bounce now!!! I love this product and it has become a permanent fixture in my shower!
Court H from Undisclosed
I love love love this product. I have wavy hair that wants to frizz up in the winter. This conditioner made my hair shiny, smooth, and more manageable. Thank you!
Aduke from Undisclosed
I recieved my kristin ess cleansing conditioner and the bottle was busted. Half of the product was smeared in the bag it arrived in. I was able to clean off the bottle and use what was left. It has a very strong perfume smell. It doesnt smell bad it is just stong. As for controling the frizz, it worked. I was only able to get 3 uses out of the bottle. But it did help a lot with the frizz.
Smooth and soft
Angel30a from Undisclosed
I love this product. My hair gets cleaned while also doing a great conditioning. My hair is so unbelievably soft and smooth. I loved running my fingers through it after use. I will be sure to buy this product often in the future.
Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner
Pebbs14304 from Undisclosed
I got the Kristen Ess Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner. I have a 12 yr old little girl with tight and loose curls that knot and frizz. I wanted to see if this product would work in her hair, because nothing has so far. It's a great product, but the downfall is that she has an oily scalp with dry and frizzy ends. As far as the product for the ends of her hair it works great, but it made her scalp more greasy. But I would still recommend it for extreme dry and damaged hair.
Whitney from Undisclosed
I have never used a cleansing conditioner before I got to try this one out as a sample. My hair gets so very dry from working outside nearly everyday in some harsh weather. I dont wash my everyday, every 2 to 3 days depending on my activities. It was a little weird at first since it doesnt get all soapy and sudsy like regular shampoo does. It smells really gerat. It makes my hair feel great and it has a nice sheen to it. I will definitely be getting this again when mine is gone.
Not sure how I feel about this
Cmcginn from Undisclosed
I'm not sure how to feel about this product. I work in a super hot environment & my hair gets sweaty. I tried this product after work one day & didn't feel as if my hair was clean. It still felt oily. I also tried it on a day off & still didn't feel as if my hair was as clean as it could have been. I plan on trying this after I use my normal shampoo & see how I feel about it then. I love the smell
