This is my second time trying out the fekkai brilliant gloss conditioner.
My hair is colored, and sometimes it can be dry, so I like to use products that will bring moisture to my hair.
Heres a few things that I enjoyed
The smell, it is not as potent as the shampoo but it still gives you that spa like feeling In the shower and I love that.
When I put on my hair it felt lightweight. I would have wanted for it to have given me more moisture or be a bit heavier as I tend to detangle my hair in the shower and would have wanted the product to help me more in that aspect, but it still gave me softness and manageability to my hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review For me, this was a swing and a miss.…
For me, this was a swing and a miss. I typically swear by the pink fekkai deep conditioner but I dont like this AT ALL. I like the idea of it being very simple (paraben and sulfate feed etc) and the bottle being mostly made of recyclable material. It didnt smell great in the shower as it seems to be mostly made of olive oil. It worked well as a basic conditioner and my hair seemed soft and tangle free in the shower. I didnt notice any significant positive difference after drying my hair though (glossy or smoother). So at this point I just thought it was meh. But, through the night I kept smelling this funky smell. No joke I kept accusing people of farting. Then I thought I had accidentally put on laundry that sat in the wash too long so I was smelling clothes because it smelt like mildew. By chance, my hair flew under my nose and BAM! I found the smell. Its awful. My hair smells like a stinky old dish sponge. I cant use this again and its not even glossy on me. For the record I have bleached blonde hair with vibrant yellow ends dyed with manic panic hair dye if that makes any difference.

I have only used this product twice so far and I love it. The smell is wonderful and it makes my hair feel very soft, which i love. I just ordered this and more of this product line today.
Wouldnt waste my money

If you used the glossing shampoo and conditioner you will be very disappointed with this product!!!! I wil keep looking to find something more comparable!
Horrible new formula
Kristy from Florida
I used the glossing line for years (10+) and loved it. BUT the new formula is awful!! It dried my hair out horribly. Lost the beautiful shine and silky feeling it once had. Everything I bought ended up in the trash. I used to rave about Fekkai and now I have nothing even remotely good to say.
Used to LOVE this
drkl from ny, ny
I have very long frizzy medium-thin hair. While this does make my hair appear more full, it does NOT make it more glossy and was totally frizzy after blow drying it. Very runny, doesn't feel smooth after using it and very tangled.
I used to use the old formulation which was amazing. Too bad.
ERF333 from Sarasota, Florida
I am thrilled the company went clean! Piece of advice to people that are used to the old line that was full of silicones, you have to give the products and your hair at least 3 weeks to adapt and rid your hair of the silicone buildup. I promise you that after that you will never use silicones again. Your hair will go back to its natural state. This gloss line is the best for my hair. It makes it so soft, conditioner has good slip and i love the smell, like green tea!
A great product.
Debbie L from Mesa ,Arizona
It's a great product. I am a licensed hairdresser and I wouldn't use anything else on my bleached hair. It's a great smelling shampoo and conditioner, that makes your hair shiny and feel great.

It is NOT AT ALL like it used to be. Discontinuing a great product everybody loved for the new formula that does not work. leaves hair dull and heavy. What a shame. Do yourself a favor and do not waste your money.
I love this
Stef from undisclosed
Great conditioner and I love that the packaging is made with recycled plastic! A win win!! Perfect.
Oh, Fekkai - what have you done?
SueInNJ from NJ
I have been a loyal Fekkai customer for years. The prior version of the brilliant glossing conditioner was perfection in a bottle. I thought you just changed the packaging and bought this new version. It is horrible! With your old formulation, my hair was silky when wet and then dried shiny and glossy. This new version doesn't detangle, doesn't make my hair silky and leaves it dull with no shine at all. It pains me to say it, but you've just lost a very longterm customer.
Unicorn Lady from Somerville, MA
I love Brilliant Gloss Conditioner from Fekkai. I Am offended that Fekkai has stopped selling their 16 oz. bottle of this and actually doubled the cost for its customers!!!
DrugDoc from undisclosed
I've been using this conditioner for years and absolutely love it! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the formula has changed and is not as thick. It's more like a lotion than a cream now, and it doesn't leave my hair as soft as the previous one did.
Frizz gone after 2 washes
zohor from boston
love love this shampoo. my frizz was gone after 2 washes.
Unbelievably soft hair
Nd44 from Idaho
Worth every penny. I love how soft and shiny it makes my hair. There are no other products on the market that come close to what this system will do for your hair. I'd give it 10 stars. I have been using this for over 6 years and its how I treat myself. Everyone should at very least try this.
Not Good—you have lost a loyal customer
Moya Suddaby from Denver CO
I was hoping this would be as good as the previous glossing conditioner. It wasn't! I am dissatisfied and will not buy this in the future. How can I buy the old stock? Very unhappy whe. You decided to change a very good product into one that is similar to all the cheaper brands.
Silky and healthy hair
Elbeth from Dc
Wow my hair looks so much silkier and healthy. I really recommend.
Great product/super expensive
Stefanie T from NJ
I love this shampoo and conditioner- have been using them both for years and they make my hair so healthy and shiney. Just wish it wasn't sooo expensive.
NEWA from undisclosed
Great conditioner! Other reviewers said they had to wash their hair more frequently but I have found the opposite to be true. My hair always feels great right after I wash it and also two days later. Plus, I am really picky about fragrances - generally don't like them and I LOVE this.
Happy Camper from Ohio
This product keeps my hair soft and shiny without feeling gunky.
Sojourner from undisclosed
Great conditioner. The conditioning effect remains for several days.
Customer from Philadelphia
The product and packaging has changed. The original product was fantastic. The new version is not worth the money.
Lizl from Charlotte, NC
Love it!! Leaves hair so smooth and soft! I have never used a totally clean product that works this well!
Smells like plastic.
Patti from North Attleboro, MA
The shampoo & conditioner still seem to work ok. I have only used twice and now they want a review. It does not smell good though. Almost smells like plastic. Will not buy again and am researching safeness of adding essential oils or something to make it smell nice.
I hate the change!
Viola from Kohler WI
I absolutely hate the new formulas. The old glossing line was flawless! This just leave my hair feeling like gummy straw. You lost me as a customer that's for sure.
Old formulation preferred
Michelle from undisclosed
Loved the old conditioner. The new formula does not detangle and is a totally different product. Will not buy again.

Horribly inferior to former Fekkai shampoo and conditioner
