Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
Overall I haven't had a ton of success with the intended result of this line's products - however at the very least I thought this conditioner was decently moisturizing. My hair is curly and craves moisture every second every hour. Also, it gets very tangled at times. This conditioner both moisturizes dry hair and it has a lot of slip to get through the tangled mess I have to encounter. It melted through my tangles and felt like butter. The conditioner is light green.
One thing I'd change is that I don't think there's a single ingredient that occurs in nature in this conditioner. I know not every chemical is bad but it would be nice if they (Matrix as a whole) would jump on the natural ingredient no silicone route. You'd expand your market to people like me who usually avoid those ingredients if they can. I'm not completely against lab experiments but it is rare that they ever become essential products for me. I like things I can wash out easily and I don't think this conditioner will. Even when the moisture wears off you'll need to add more but itll be much more difficult if the ingredients cause build up.
I am so bummed this did not work! I was sent this via #Influenster to test and review, and when I got it in the mail I was super excited to try it out and reverse a hair color mistake. But nothing changed! I followed the directions, I used the whole system, and I still have red in my hair. The conditioner is nothing special, and it did not maintain any color change. It did stain my nails, though, because it did not say to use gloves in the directions. I really wanted to like this product, but instead I am super disappointed ☹️

This is one of the first products that I've ever bought that actually does what it says it will do. Great product!!

Smells really good but I see much of a difference in my dark hair. Do NOT use this if you plan on bleaching your hair in the future.

I recently colored my hair dark from blonde. I have well water and have a hard time keeping any color in my hair... I found this and decided to try it. I have curly hair, it gives my hair moisture. The shampoo keeps my color looking freshly dyed, I always get asked if I just recently dyed my hair . ( it's been 4 months) totally recommend.

while this product smells good and does leave my hair feeling softer... i bought it specifically to help with natural red tones and didnt really notice a difference
Rivka from Estero, Florida
I positively love this reasonably priced conditioner that is ideal for dark hair. Makes my hair soft & shiny, like I expect!
Torlynn from Cincinnati,Ohio
Received this as a gift, I found the best use for it is mid hair shaft-ends. Or, put it on your roots right before you rinse out, to avoid residue left behind. I have a sensitive scalp and I had no issues with this product, and will be buying again.

I purchased this conditioner during the sale last month and I love this product! I wanted to try something new for my dreadlocks and I am glad I did! From the smell to the way my hair feels, Its a pleasure to wash my hair on wash day.

Great product. Keeps my hair a saturated brown and glossy. Just be sure to wear gloves when you use. It has dye in it in and will dye your hands and nails. I had purple nails for a few days.
Jen from Columbus
It did a great job of detangling my hair and left it super soft to the touch ready to be styled so I appreciated that. Smelled amazing and left no mess
I typically used this after I shampooed it left my hair very moisturized and ready to style
Geo BML from NYC
You really need this conditioner in the set. This is one of those sets that you need to use all the products. I'm not a fan of temporary dyes or at home dying but it's not that bad if you use a glove
Trippy from Chicago,Il
I used this as a follow up to the shampoo as it said. I like the way it felt going into my hair but when I got out of the shower i feel my hair was kind of dry.
MsStasia from Sioux City, IA
I used this product after using the shampoo. Was simple and easy to use. Smell was mild. My hair felt amazing after use but even more than that it made my hair look tame. The color could potentially stain because it's so dark but that wasn't something I was worried about. Make sure you only use this on dark colored hair. If you have lighter hair it could potentially give it a hint of green.
Kay from New york
Soft and smells good. But didnt really see any difference.
Shirl from CA
I have black/dark brown hair, so I don't have significant red undertones. But you can see some of it in the sunlight. The conditioner in combination with the shampoo was very effective in eliminating those reds. The downside is this shampoo and conditioner line isn't as moisturizing for the hair as it claims. My hair felt a bit drier than usual, so I don't recommend this if you have dry or frizz-prone hair like I do. If not, this line is great if you need a boost in color
and vibrancy for your hair.

I received this conditioner for free through a sampling program along with the shampoo and hair mask. It worked wonderfully, from the light fragrant smell to the way it left my hair feeling nice and moisturized. 9/10 for sure.
Cydmarie from Bangor, Maine
I received this as a complementary free gift from @Influenster. This conditioner is a nice addition to the Dark Envy Shampoo. The conditioner has no color pigment in it, which is nice, and adds a beautiful shine to your hair. Its light weight and doesn't make your hair greasy! Great for everyday use.
Jen from Indiana
This smells great! Does a good job toning my red!
Itzelt from Bakersfield, CA
This product with the coordinating shampoo works amazing. They do what they claim, so to anyone that's been eyeing this product, get it!
Farrah from Bay Area, CA
I have all black version hair but not sure how much this really does to enhance the dark hues as it claims. However, I do feel like it is pretty hydrating and leaves my hair shinier and softer, and I like the smell of this shampoo, so I would consider it for that!
Sarah from US
Pro: Has a nice scent. Thats it.
Con: little results which did not last long at all (my hair felt the same, it was already soft in the first place naturally and the conditioner did not do much), definitely not strong enough to heal your hair from the shampoo and treatment from this line, expensive (you can find so much better at the drugstore which are a lot more affordable like suave)
LMorales from Pittsburg, Kansas
I received the Matrix Dark Envy set for testing purposes. I used the shampoo in addition to the hair mask and accompanying conditioner. My hair is a dark brown color and almost looks all black in some lightening, but I have always had red or cooper undertones which made me feel like I had a bad dye job. The conditioner does not have the dye like the shampoo and the hair mask so there was no need to use gloves, like I did with the first two steps. The conditioner helped nourish my hair and I feel like the shampoo may have been too harsh to use without it. It had a good smell that I didn't mind and it left my hair looking silky after I brushed and blow dried it.

Thick conditioner helps with making hair smooth and shiny
Michele B from MS
received this DARK ENVY Conditioner complimentary for testing/reviewing purposes.
My daughter has a natural brunette hair, so she tried these products for couple of weeks. (My hair is blonde right now) Her hair is a warm/reddish brown and this mask helped to make her hair so soft, shiny, and healthier look! (picture shown)
I really like how it will tint a little darker, cooler, but not too dark. We were a bit nervous to use this because of the color (green!) and we thought it'll be very messy. It definitely will stains my finger tips, sink and/or tub (it turns gray) , so I wear globes every time when I use these products.
Surprisingly, these products rinse very well and it does not get on the towels.
To avoid staining your hairline, I use a tiny amount of vaseline. Overall, we really like this toning conditioner!
