Rated 4.14 out of 5 stars
I've gone through one mini and one full-sized bottle of this conditioner (same goes for the brand's shampoo and detangle spray) and I found it to be a nice product. It's very nicely formulated and made my hair feel soft. Also, when I used this combined with the Cocomino shampoo and Wild Marula spray, my hair looked shinier than it ever has, to the point that my relatives would comment on it (which they never do) after I dried my hair. I always used the three together, so I'm not sure if it was one product in particular or the combination of the three, but I can at least vouch for their efficacy in delivering on the "shine" promise when they're used together.
My complaint with this is the same that I have with the shampoo — it's too expensive for the amount of product that you get. I feel this should come with at least twice the amount it currently does. Also, the bottle is annoying to use after you go through more than half of the conditioner, so I wish it would be redesigned to a more standard shape.
I don't like giving bad reviews but I feel almost traumatized after using this. When I put it on, my hair tangled up soo bad!! I have long coarse hair down to my waist. I'm used to shedding and losing hair everyday. Anyhow, I put this on my hair and every time I tried to comb my fingers through my hair like normal, it would just tangle. I gave it time. I put more on, saturated my hair and let it sit while I exfoliated, etc. Finally I started rinsing my hair thinking letting it saturate would give it time to work..NOPE. it was like a wet giant birds nest. I almost cried. FINALLY, I decided to add another brand of conditioner to see if it would work. It did, but it took me about 10 minutes to work the tangles out. Never again!! I've tried brands from Suave to Oribe, Lanza, etc. I wouldn't use this again if someone paid me. I was going to post a pic of the hair that I had to pick up off the floor but decided not to but it was at least 3-4 times more than what Usually comes off.

This conditioner smells great and smoothes my very frizzy hair. It's not greasy but it is effective at detangling and smoothing. I've bought again and again.

How this product can be called conditioner when it does not do anything? Pretty bad product. Left my hair super tangled and dry. Also I used tons of this product and just nothing. Would not recommend.

This conditioner is a good consistency meaning it's not gloppy but just think enough to make your hair feel soft. I use this around every other wash so as to not have my hair become immune to the product. My hair feels manageable afterwards.

I bought this and the shampoo about 3 months ago and it makes literal chunks of my hair fall out which has never happened before with any other shampoo, not only that it would continuously make my hair knotted and ratty even when i brushed it multiple times. do not get this.

I had bought this along with cocomino shampoo . Shampoo left my hair dry and scalp felt little itchy because of dryness. And no matter how much conditioner I used my hair was left dry and frizzy. Won't
recommend it at all.

Waited to write the review until I used the entire bottle. I have thick hair. This didn't leave my hair feeling moisturize. My hair felt dirty just a day or two after washing..with other shampoos I can go 4-7 days between a shampoo/conditioner. Would not recommend.

The conditioner is fine, but trying to get it out of the bottle is brutal. You can't squeeze a flat container made of solid plastic. You would think this bottle was already empty.

I saw when I was searching for a new shampoo that drunk elephant had a hair care line & decided to try it! This conditioner is great in that you only need the smallest amount and it is very moisturizing. My only issue is that you have to be very careful to keep it ONLY on your ends. If I get too close to the edge of my scalp my hair does get very greasy.

AMAZING FORMULA. You will not be disappointed when using this product. It is super soft and silky with a great blend of ingredients.

It's a nice conditioner, but it didn't really do much for my hair. In my opinion, you're paying for the name and logo rather than quality.

This is my absolute FAVORITE conditioner ever! It doesn't have a super strong fragrance, is clean beauty, and leaves my hair soft and shiny :)

This is a great conditioner for hair that needs moisture. It's pretty heavy so I wouldn't use it on super fine or oily hair, but it's pretty great

Bought with the shampoo. Love them both !!! Hair is so shiny

I have long, thick hair that's dry and frizzy. If I use a moisturizing conditioner, my hair is usually greasy and flat, but if I don't, it's super dry and frizzy. The Cocomino Merula Cream Conditioner is perfect! It conditions without weighing hair down and leaves me with shiny, manageable hair. Love it!

Either this or the shampoo make me break out along my hairline even after rinsing rinsing thoroughly. I didn't realize it was this brand until I read other reviews citing the same problem. Really unfortunate because I like the way it made my hair feel. But the breakouts were bad. I'm trying briogeo now.
Momo from NY
Love the pH on this conditioner. I use this as a leave in conditioner.
Works well as a rinse conditioner but doesn't detangle my curls as easily as the DE mega moisturizing masker.
Angela from Michigan
I love the Cocomino shampoo and was not expecting to dislike the matching conditioner. Instead of smelling like sweet almonds, this smells like almonds gone bad. It doesn't feel as moisturizing as other conditioners I've tried, and the bottle is kind of rigid so it's hard to get product out by squeezing. I have to keep it upside down, but that creates a different struggle since DE bottles are so hard to open.

I like this conditioner. This contains nice clean ingredients and it's more gentle on the hair, but I don't like the overall performance of this product on my hair. I would not buy this product again.

I really enjoy this shampoo and conditioner set. There isn't really a smell at all which could be a good thing or bad thing depending what you like. It washes really well and leaves hair soft and shiny. You only need a tiny bit so the set last me a long time. (I have hair passed my shoulders for reference)
AJ from Waterford, CT
I bought this along with the glossing shampoo and both did amazing! It smells like oats and leaves hair silky and soft. I love the formula but it may be a bit too heavy for oily hair. I love this!
Ann from Michigan
So silky feeling! This smells good and feels even better. Hard to describe - just try it!
Curly Sue from Toledo, Ohio
I love the smell of this and especially its spin butter consistency. You don't need much, and it's natural scent doesn't irritate my scalp like fragrances made from chemicals do.
gypsy from Indiana
I got a sample of this from Ulta along with many other samples I got this with the gloss shampoo the scent smells just like jergens body lotion which isn't bad but you think they have a better scent it did leave my hair really soft but so does my other products I have this is fine but i don't really know if I'd buy this it is nice and makes my hair soft n smooth but it's not taking my breath away by any means

The conditioner leaves my hair soft and silky. My hair is very fine, and the conditioner doesn‚Äôt weigh it down. It smells lovely.
