Rated 4.12 out of 5 stars
I have been wanting to try this brand so this conditiomer came at the right time and was exactly what we needed! For reference I have wavy dry hair and my daughter has long thin fine hair. I was having trouble with dryness, needing maintenance done, and my daughter was having trouble with one spot on the back of head where her hair was forming these huge knots. Her hair was so much less tangled and more manageable with this! It gave mine the little pick me up it needed to survive the rest of this quarantine. It feels a little more healthy now! Now onto the scent, and maybe I'm crazy, but to me it smells like swimming pool and sunscreen, its not strong, and I love it, but picture being at a waterpark with sunscrreen on, with your noise right above the water . That's what I smell. I love it!!
The conditioner left much to be desired, in my opinion. It's so thick and pasty, it has a hard time coming out of the bottle. By the third use, I had to start storing it upside down (like you do with a bottle of ketchup or mustard that doesn't want to come out so you have to bang on the end of it). I also have very long hair which I planned on cutting but thanks to this Quarentine, haven't gotten a chance go do so. My hair is Ombrè'd, and is a bit past its' prime so with that and the combination of the length, it tangles easily now. Normally, I tend to use silky/smooth conditioners because that's the only way I'm not pulling all of my hair out when I brush it after a shower. I was excited to try this as it was designed to target and strengthen my hair (and since it tangles and tears so easily now), but I am just simply not a fan. It seemed to give my hair a static feel to it like I rubbed a dryer sheet all over it. It made it feel like there was humidity in the air and it felt like it zapped all the moisture out of it and frizzed/puffed it up. I am also not a fan of the smell, unfortunately. I know it's a professional salon brand but it actually smells like you're IN a salon; like you're sitting next to someone getting a perm. All in all I give the conditioner a 2/5.

I thought I would try something different and was very dissapointed in this product.Very thick, It is like putting lotion in your hair. Made my hair dry and brittle and tangled.Returned it and went back to my original Nexxus conditioner.If I could give it one star I would.

I love other products from Kendra, but this was a big disappointment. I looked at the bottle several times to make sure it said conditioner since it did nothing to condition my hair. I had to use a large amount just to cover my hair (a bit longer than shoulder length) and still left my hair feeling brittle and tangled.

I have never found a conditioner that improved my hair AND didn't make it weighed down and greasy feeling. I'm 59, and had bad whiplash year ago. The stress has taken it's toll on my hair, turning gray and breaking off. This makes it feel soft but not heavy.

Right away I fel the product smoothing my long hair making it more manageable. It is already preventing and repairing my breakage from styling!
Love from Baton Rouge
I love this conditioner and shampoo! Makes my hair strong and makes it grow like a weed!
Belutt from Iowa
I bought the matching shampoo and conditioner and it is disappointing. I don't know how they claim it stops breakage. It made my hair dry and frizzy and my split ends worse. Feels like a cheap drugstore product or even worse.
Shosh from AK
My hair felt a bit damaged after highlights and lowlights in a salon. My hair is naturally blonde and fine; straight in the front and sides and wavy in the back. The combination of Kenra strengthening shampoo and conditioner has worked to keep breakage at a minimum, but I have to use about double the conditioner I would normally for my whole head to feel conditioned, and my hair is fine and only just past shoulder length.
Also, no matter how much I use, the back of my head is always a rat's nest of tangles when I get out of the shower. Lastly, the smell is vaguely reminiscent of litter box to me. So I'll finish what I have, but I'll probably go back to Redken next.

This stuff had the consistency of frosting and left my hair feeling like hay! Absolutely hated it will be returning asap.

Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but it smells terrible, like a chemical or a cheap hairspray even. I purchased online through a sale and bought the conditioner and leave in conditioner as well and all 3 have the same smell. My hair stylist as well as my mother in law use the same products and theirs smells totally different.

I had high hopes for this product due to some great reviews but have had a poor experience with it. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the comment that describes this conditioner as more of a "lotion" feeling. My hair type is long but straight, regular thickness and generally very manageable. Even with shampooing 2x and using a de-tangler after my shower, the conditioner seems to do nothing for my hair. :(
Lizzy from Charlotte NC
The pump is not the best and only squeezes out a tiny amount. The conditioner itself feels and smells more like lotion. There is no slip at all to this product. I feel like it honestly makes my hair less manageable. I have fine hair but normal thickness.
Ash from North Carolina
I have fallen in love with the Kenra strengthening conditioner. If you have ever used a hair masque before, you will find this conditioner to be equal substance. It is so thick it can be difficult to get it out of the bottle. I just turned it upside down and it made it much easier. But the squeeze is WORTH it!!! From first run through of my hair i knew this one was different. It left my hair feeling like silk without leaving and residue. I absolutely love this!!

Love the way my hair feels after using!
Nichole from GR, MI
In use with shampoo I noticed less breakage and less hair in my brush after about a week of use. I wish it did have a better smell. It doesn't smell bad I just wish was more fragrant.
Brie from Modesto
I love how great my hair feels after using this. It made my hair shiny and soft. I will be using this all the time now.
KB from Georgia
I liked the conditioner better than the shampoo but still did not notice the strengthening as advertised. I enjoyed the scent and it did a nice job moisturizing my thick wavy hair.

I really like the Keren Strengthening Conditioner. It's extremely thick conditioner and makes your hair feel soft and stronger.

Using the shampoo & condition together leads to significantly less breakage. Usually, I have a ton of hair in my brush, but I noticed way less hair breaking off. Plus it smells good and leaves your hair super easy to brush.
Richaar from San Francisco
This is a great quality conditioner which leaves my hair soft smooth and healthy. I have noticed a decrease in the hair fall amount. The smell is great.
Stephanie from Texas
My new favorite conditioner! Leaves my hair feeling soft and smells great! I would definitely buy it once I finish this bottle!

My holy grail conditioner..unlike those runny conditioner this is a thick creamy one .it has a fresh scent reminds me of a after shower body cream. Definitely my favorite. It adds strength to each strand of my hair . Definitely repurchase..
jwhit from oregon
i was a little bit surprised that I didn't love this product. I usually love Kenra but I found my hair drier than normal and didn't notice any strengthening benefits. I also had a hard time combing through mu hair after using the conditioner.
Bellalulubelle from Boston
I enjoyed using the Kenra Professional Strengthening Conditioner. I liked how easy it was to detangle my hair. Didn't leave my hair feeling rough or hard to manage. Will definitely continue to use it along with the strengthening shampoo to see better results!
