Rated 4.36 out of 5 stars
I've been using The Detangler for 25+ years. I've switched, and tried other products out of curiosity, but I always come back to this. I have long, thick, fine hair, and this doesn't make my hair waxy or weighted down. Conditions nicely, and Detangles well. Nice, pleasant smell. I use this with the Original Awapuhi Shampoo. I have oily hair, and the two have worked well together for many years. They leave my hair silky and shiny. I never have a problem with my oily scalp when using these two together, and yet they don't dry out the rest of my hair. I would recommend to anyone with oily, fine hair.
I had high hopes about this product because of the brand. Usually my go to shampoo is the Biology Hydration shampoo and conditioner, they leave my hair feeling AMAZING!! However Biology shot the prices up of their shampoo and conditioner by over $10 each so I needed something affordable which the prices on these are amazing! I bought the shampoo and conditioner, I was very impressed with the shampoo as I thought it cleaned my hair and was very gentle. Then I got to the conditioner and was extremely disappointed. The smell is like a unscented cream and it felt like I was putting lotion in my hair. The texture was like a cheap cream, it felt my hands and hair feeling grimy. It was hard to spread the product evenly through my hair and I found myself using more. My hair did not feel hydrated, it was dry. I did notice it was easier to brush which was nice. My partner said the same thing with her hair which is coarse compared to mine. I debated returning the product which I wish I would have and just spent the extra money on the Biology conditioner. I would buy the shampoo again because it was amazing, just not the conditioner. I did have a little extra of my Biology conditioner so I used this with the Paul Mitchell's shampoo and my hair was so soft!! I'd use that combo in the future for sure! Hope this helps someone. I'm giving this product a 2 stars because the prices is unbeatable for the size, it's lasted me over 3 months for 2 people, and my hair brushes easier. Cons, texture, smells unpleasant, makes my hair dry.

I really like this conditional. It makes my hair really soft. Plus it makes the tanglers come out of my hair.

This conditioner did have a very great slip, yet it does not do almost anything at all and is extremely thin and lightweight, so this may be good for someone with very fine, already healthy hair. It felt almost too easy to rinse out as it felt like there was nothing in my hair- just water, and may work well for someone who would just like something to use to detangler their hair in the shower. This is bright yellow in color and has a powdery-floral-like fragrance that smells like a generic lotion sort of. If you tend to put conditioner in your hair and clip it up, this will not be good for you as the conditioner just drips right out, so I typically have to use a ton of product for it to do any sort of conditioning in the slightest. I noticed more split ends and dryer hair than normal while using this product, If you are looking for something hydrating and/or moisturizing, I would stay away. I would not recommend this conditioner to most and do not understand the great reviews.

I like the new Liter Pouch. I have been using John Paul Mitchell Awaphui & Clarifying Shampoos and the Detangler since 1982 and plan to keep using them for many more. I highly recommend these products.

Love this conditioner

This has by far been the best conditioner I have found for taming my thick heavy hair. It keeps it curly and wavy but seems to take weight off, and gets rid of the frizz no problem! highly recommended for the thick heavy hair crew out there!

Thank you for the review request. I appreciate it. I am happy with it, but a little disappointed that it's not as thick and moisturizing as it used to be about 20 years ago. I actually quit using it back then because it was just too much for my hair and left it feeling almost oily. But that is what I am needing now, because I now bleach my hair and was hoping it would be the same dense level of moisturizer. Nothing stays the same though. Thank you anyway.

Recall using Paul Mitchell since the Salon off Peachtree in Buckhead, Atlanta, Ga 1990 with Freeze & Shine my favorite then. Love The Detangler, the scent and immediate smoothness of my hair as growing longer for 6 months now and looking so forward to more growth.

Best I have found to use. I have long, thick and curly hair. Years of trying new and "different" products almost made me give into the idea that I would not finding something worth spending my money on. Taking a two week vacation at my sisters house, she introduced me to a product she uses. After two weeks of using this product, I was sold! Easy comb outs, great control of my hair and loved the feel of it. I sat down with her and ordered it online. Couldn't wait to get it back home and continue my trial time. No disappointments here! Great product.

I think this conditioner would be great for someone with fine hair, the formula is not rich as advertised, and it does not weigh hair down, which is a plus. The formula is rather light, and easy to work with. I dont have thick hair, and this conditioner does not really detangle well enough my damaged color-treated hair. I need a conditioner that is deeply moisturizing and detangling, and unfortunately, this conditioner did not really work for me. I expected better detangling, and was hoping for "replenishing thirsty hair" as this product claimed. For my color treated hair there was simply not enough detangling, and not enough hydration.

So glad I discovered this again. My hair looks longer and more healthy after one use.

I bought this Detangling Conditioner after using it from a hotel conditioner on a trip. It works so much better than Moroccan Oil products which I had been using for years. Is also a lot cheaper! I do not have to use as much, smells amazing, and works better at detangling my hair. I have long curly hair and this helps with frizz and keeping my curls soft. Even my husband has commented on my hair being softer.

I didn't get the samples I requested—twice.
RF from KCMO
Runny and thin consistency, does not smell great, does not detangle, requires much more product than it should.
Kenzie from Madison, MS
This is by far the best conditioner I have ever used! I have really thick hair that can get so tangled but adding this has definitely helped.

It's the only thing that keeps my hair from knotting up on the underside.
