Most Helpful Positive Review Not Your Mothers Way To Grow is the way to go!!
I've been using the Not Your Mother's Way to Grow shampoo and conditioner system for 3 weeks now. I have replaced my other haircare products, and exclusively used this product to wash and condition my hair since receiving it in order to give an honest review (I wash/condition my hair 3-4 times a week).
Before I even put this on my hair I loved the fact that Not Your Mother's is made in the USA, cruelty free, and contains no "icky" ingredients (it's free of sulfate surfactants, dyes, and parabens).
While I can't say I've noticed any hair growth in the short amount of time I've been using the Way to Grow products, it has noticeably improved my hair's quality.
My biggest hair concerns are that my wavy hair has a lot of frizz, static, and dryness. The first time using this I noticed an immediate improvement! My hair felt noticably soft, silky, hydrated and smooth without using any other styling products and only towel drying (it looked so good that even my husband commented on it)!! I've found other hydrating conditioners are very heavy and take the wave out of my hair or leave it feeling oily, but I have not had that problem with the Not Your Mothers Way to Grow conditioner, my hair feels hydrated, smooth, and clean even when I skip a day of washing.
While the conditioner has slightly different directions then what I was used to (apply conditioner then massage into scalp for 2-3 min) I was able to easily add it to my nighttime shower routine and the added scalp massage has become a nice relaxing part of my self care routine.
The only negative result I encountered with this product was that it made my scalp dry when first using it (I noticed more skin flakes from my scalp the first 2 weeks I used this product), but fortunately that problem has since resolved.
While I love this product overall, I have to say I don't love the apple scent. Luckily the fragrance is not overly offensive and fades quickly luckily, but the smell is very artificial and it reminds me of scented hand sanitizer. I would prefer a more neutral and natural sweet scent like honey or vanilla.
Overall the pros outweigh the negatives big time with this conditioner, I am very pleased with the improvements I've seen in my hair and I plan to continue using this product. I look forward to trying other "Not Your Mother's" hair care products in the future! Thanks very much to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner and introducing me to this brand, I am a fan!
Most Helpful Critical Review Product just as disappointing as the packaging
When I received the shampoo and conditioner from Stellar Reviews I was immediately taken aback by the terrible packaging - I get trying to stand out from the competition on the shelf but this is not something that makes me feel good about what's in the package, nor makes me feel like it will make me beautiful in any way. This is not something I felt good about having in my shower.
Sadly, the product was just as disappointing and to be honest, revolting. The shampoo is not as luxurious or as moisturizing as my current shampoo and the smell is terrible. And the conditioner is watery. When I got out of the shower my fine hair was much harder to comb than usual and while it might have felt a little lighter at first, it went limp quickly and I noticed it became dirtier faster than my regular shampoo. It also made it feel much drier. I'm sticking with what works, but it's always nice to try something new every once in a while just to make sure you have the best product for me.

So I've been using both the shampoo and conditioner for stronger hair for several weeks now about every other night, and it seems to be working. As new moms know, you tend to lose hair or it starts breaking or does funky stuff after giving birth. Mine has seen better days for sure, but I'm going to continue using these products and see if it continues to make a difference. I loved the scent (red apple) which wasn't overpowering and how rich and thick it was. My hair feels soft and looks shinier and I'm having less breakage. I'm excited and will definitely purchase in the future. I did receive this product as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, but I will be purchasing more of this company's products after using this one.
Clean ingredients equals clean feeling
Mmejia28 from undisclosed
One of the first things I look at when I buy a hair product, is the ingredient list. I was so happy to see that this conditioner was paraban and sulfate free. I loved how it left my hair feeling clean and soft without any added build up. I used it every other day in conjunction with the way to grow shampoo. It had a nice clean scent that I really enjoyed and I did notice less breakage after 2 weeks of using it. I would definitely consider buying this product in the future. Thank you to weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me this conditioner to test and review.
I've used this...
Vlas from undisclosed
I've used this conditioner daily for over 2 weeks. It has a clean, fresh red apple scent. It leaves my hair smooth and easy to detangle. I have scalp psoriasis and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. I was surprised at how thin this conditioner is; the matching shampoo is much thicker. As a result, I'm using up the conditioner more quickly than the shampoo. I had hoped this would be more moisturizing but I'm also glad it doesn't weigh down my fine hair. I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel.
Not your mother's conditioner
Morg Herbst from undisclosed
I received this product from the stellar product panel and I wish I had more time to review the conditioner. I only had a few weeks and I'm not sure I was able to see the full effect it of it. The conditioner made my hair super soft instantly and it was a nice mousse texture with a lovely scent. You only need a small amount to get the job done. I am currently trying to grow my hair long so this product is a good fit. It seems to have grown a bit in the past few weeks but nothing drastic. I hope to see more results as I continue to use this product.
Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Conditioner
Kgio from undisclosed
I received this product through Stellar Product Testing Panel, and thought what a great way to give this another try. I was really hoping with a new formula it would be better, unfortunately I didn't find any change at all. The Conditioner is very watery, making most of fall to the floor of the shower before getting it to your head. It smells like glue, incredibly unpleasant.
I do not find it helps it grow or even conditions it. My hair ends up more tangled, frizzy and smelling like glue.
Leaves your hair soft
Maria from undisclosed
I pair this conditioner with the Not Your Mothers shampoo and the difference it has made my hair is amazing! I really like that this product does not leave your hair feeling greasy. I have been using the shampoo and conditioner 3 times a week and it has helped my hair grow at least 1/2 inch! I definitely recommend this product not only of you want to achieve hair growth but if your looking for a conditioner that doesn't leave your hair frizzy or greasy then this is the product to try! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner.
Good, but not great
PepperedTeBrink from undisclosed
I received this product free as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel to trial in exchange for my honest feedback. It's difficult to rate this product separate from the shampoo, but I will do my best. I gave this product 4 stars because it is a good product, just not for me. The first thing I noticed before testing the product was the directions instructing to rub into scalp for 2-3 mins which contradicts what a conditioner does. I followed the instructions as written and discovered that this adjustment is due to the product focusing on improving hair growth as priority. The conditioner does well finishing the job that the shampoo does not (fully cleaning and hydrating the scalp) which I was pleased with, but since it is not a true conditioner, within 24 hours my hair began to get frizzy and oily where my previous regimen lasted at least 2 days. I have thick, fine, oily hair and this product is just not the right one for me. My daughter's hair, however it is perfect for as she doesn't get oily yet. So Not Your Mother's will instead be for my daughter. ;)
Not a ball of frizz!
LadyElven from undisclosed
My hair is pretty damaged from bleaching, normally after washing and conditioning it looks like a ball of frizz for a day or two unless I'm liberal with product. This leaves my hair calm looking without making the unbleached parts weighed down with no additional products. It's not overly scented, which I love, and leaves my hair SO SOFT. I also tried this on my toddler's long hair and it reduced the tangles better than our normal conditioner. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner.
Love this conditioner!
ACompton from undisclosed
I really loved this conditioner and how soft it made my hair feel when using it. When used in combination with the shampoo, my hair felt softer and sleeker and was easier to blow dry and style. I used the conditioner everyday after I washed my hair with the shampoo and tried to let it set on my hair for several minutes while I showered before rinsing it off. It didn't leave an oily or greasy feel on my hair or skin like some other conditioners do so that was a huge plus. I will definitely look at buying this conditioner again. Thanks for the Steller Product Testing Panel for providing me this conditioner.
Healthy Look and Feel!
akennedy from undisclosed
I used this conditioner after every other wash and have mixed feelings on the results. It was easy to add into my routine and only required to massage into the scalp for 2-3 minutes. I felt like this conditioner did a great job at conditioning my hair, making it soft and moisturized. However, my hair easily tangles and this conditioner did not make the tangles any easier. I also felt like I needed to use more conditioner than normal because it didn't seem to stretch very far in my hair. After many compliments on how healthy my hair looked, I would use this conditioner in the future. Overall, it gave my have a healthy feel and look! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner.
Clean and fruity
SCunningham27 from undisclosed
I loved the smell of this conditioner! The subtle apple smell is a favorite scent of mine! I loved that this conditioner didn't feel like it coated my hair, but still kept it hydrated and feeling great! My hair type is naturally soft and this conditioner didn't alter that, so I'd say it was a win! Th is was very easy to add to my routine!

I was given this conditioner to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I've been using it every day for a few weeks now and I really like it! It makes my hair feel soft and in better overall condition! It seems like it has been better shine too.
Unlike Any Other Conditioner
Bekah from undisclosed
This conditioner is unlike any conditioner I've used in the past, but I like it! It's shimmery and not slippery like moisturizing conditioners or those containing "cone" ingredients. It doesn't smooth super easily into wet hair like those other conditioners, so I did feel like I needed to use quite a bit to totally cover my hair. It goes on and almost seems to disappear. I suppose this makes sense since it's a strengthening conditioner that is depositing protein into my hair and not just coating my strands. Anyway, it doesn't feel slippery, so it's definitely important to use a leave-in conditioner to make sure I don't cause breakage as I detangle. After using an entire bottle of this product, I feel confident that it does help strengthen my hair. I see less breakage as I brush my hair, and less breakage will lead to longer hair in time!
I received this conditioner for free as part of the Stellar Testing Panel, but I'll be using my own money to buy it in a larger size next time.
Smells so good
Cchantal13 from undisclosed
The shampoo was somewhat more "sticky" than most but lathered up nicely and has a really good scent. It was a pearl white which was nice that it didn't have dyes in it. It left my hair feeling clean and smelling nice for a few days in between washes. The conditioner was nice too. My hair did seem slightly more soft and moisturized but not significantly. I used these products 2-3 times weekly. It was easy enough to add to my routine and I would buy this again in the future if it had the added feather of maintaining the color in my hair. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this shampoo.
Worked great, but worried about fragrance
KristyB from undisclosed
I received this conditioner from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I usually have low expectations for shampoo/conditioner (do they ever really make a difference?) but this product actually DID seem to make a difference! My hair looked shinier and healthier and smoother after use!
However, it does use a synthetic fragrance ("Red Apple") and the packaging doesn't specify "No phthalates." I did contact the company and they responded that none of their fragrances contain phthalates, which is good. However, I just don't feel comfortable/safe with synthetic fragrances so I probably wouldn't purchase again (even though I loved the way my hair looked!)
Good conditioner; didn't change my life
Berrynelly from undisclosed
Finding a good conditioner is really hard for me, since I have fine hair that goes limp very easily. I was excited to try Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Conditioner because my existing regimen seemed to be failing me and because it's sulfate, silicone, dye and paraben free.
I just replaced my usual conditioner with this one. It smells nice and goes on really well. After the first wash, I was pretty impressed by how shiny and soft my hair was. However, I did find that my hair was getting oilier quicker between washes and I suddenly had tangles at the nape of my neck, which I've never had before. I also seem to have more frizz when I use this conditioner. I used it every 3-4 days where I would use conditioner every 4-5 days in the past.
Once styled, my hair looks shiny and soft. Overall, this conditioner ticks a lot of the boxes, but not enough for 5 stars.

I really like this conditioner!
Jessica P from undisclosed
I recieved the Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Conditioner and shampoo to try from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. Upon receiving this product I was excited to try it. When I first used them I noticed an instant difference in my hair. It felt softer, looked healthier. These changes have continued with each use. I wash my hair every couple of days and even between washes there has been a difference in the look of my hair.
One thing that truly surprised me was the thickness of the shampoo and the airy softness of the conditioner. It helped with getting equal amounts of both. The lightness of the conditioner also gave the comforting sense that it was not overly heavy.
My only minor complaint of this product was the scent. It was very mild, which was good. I simply am not partial to the apple scent.
I could see myself buying this product in the future. The ease of adding it to my routine and the overall experience using it was pleasant and beneficial.
My hair feels great! But...
Mhughes from undisclosed
I got this conditioner a few weeks ago (as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel). I only wash my hair once every 5-7 days so I haven't used it enough to say whether makes hair grow better or faater. My hair does feel softer and is less tangled when I wake up in the mornings. I've washed my daughter's hair with it some as well. She normally wakes up some crazy tangled hair, but it's a bit better on nights I wash her hair with Not Your Mother's.
The texture of this conditioner is silky and a bit thin. I have a lot of hair and I use only enough conditioner to coat my hair. The instructions in this say to massage into the scalp, which is something I normally do not do. Between the thinner consistency and using it on my scalp as well as the length of my hair, I go through this more than my normal conditioner.
The only other negative of Not Your Mother's Way To Grow is the smell. It's apple scented, but in a candied apple way, not in a fresh picked apple". This is purely a matter of taste, however.
Overall, I would probably buy this again or another Not Your Mother's product that is perhaps better suited for my hair and tastes. I'll definitely keep washing my daughter's hair with it.

I have tried a myriad of conditioners and most have left my hair feeling either dry or weighed down or made my scalp itch constantly.
I'm always worried to try new brands because I've been disappointed so often but Not Your Mothers Way to Grow left my hair easy to brush through, soft all day, and most importantly I had ZERO scalp itch!!!
I could tell a difference in the thickness in my hair as well as the amount of hair falls after about a week has been drastically reduced.
I received this through Stellar Panel to review but the words and feelings are my own.
Great scent but not much more
LMatts from undisclosed
I was very thrilled to receive this product courtesy of the Stellar product Testing Panel. The quality ingredients and excellent reputation of the brand stand out to me. It had a very pleasant natural apple scent and a good amount of product in the packaging.
It was a very easy product to incorporate into my routine, washes clean, but as a conditioner its performance was underwhelming. it used it frequently but never saw any quality results or noticeable difference.
I am glad I tried it but wouldn't purchase for the future.
Made my naturally curly hair feel softer!
happymom4 from undisclosed
I have long naturally curly hair and battle with frizz so I was excited to try out this Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Conditioner. My first impressions were that it has a very pleasant scent and is a lightweight but creamy consistency. It was easy and smooth to apply and washed out easily as well.
I wash my hair every other day and have been using it for the past couple weeks. I comb through my hair in the shower while my hair is still wet and I do find that it's not quite as easy to comb through with this conditioner as my other brand I usually use. But I like that it is made with Vitamin B5 and Biotin and has no sulfates, parabens or dyes. It makes me feel like I am nourishing my hair with healthy ingredients. It's also cruelty free which is important to me. I do have to use quite a lot for enough coverage for my long hair so I've gone through about half of the bottle already.
I would consider buying this in the future as I have noticed how moisturized and soft my hair is after it has dried. It seems to be less frizzy. My daughter even told me my hair felt softer. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this conditioner to try out!
Works just fine
ksrives from undisclosed
I received this conditioner as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and tested it on myself and my two daughters for 3 weeks in our usual wash once a week routine. Two of us have thick wavy hair and one curly hair. My hair gets extremely dry and broken at the ends and so I'm always looking for solutions for that. I found that the conditioner was on par with other brands that offer the same type of hair support. This conditioner definitely was not a miracle product, but was about what you would expect, giving us hair that was easy to comb through and softer than if we had not used it. The smell and texture were pleasant. All in all an average product.
It Works, but Hated Scent
Naomi S from undisclosed
I received this Shampoo and Conditioner as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I found that the conditioner was very good, made my hair soft and definitely reduced the frizz when I let my hair air dry. I used the shampoo and conditioner 2-3 times per week. The biggest negative by far was the scent. The shampoo wasn't terrible, but also not my favorite It smelled like candy--synthetic sugary sweet like a kid's shampoo. The conditioner was much more offensive. It just smelled like a combination of Christmas candle scent meets Bath
Favorite new conditioner
Kayladiana from undisclosed
My hair is damaged from bleaching and coloring. It was dry and brittle, breaking easily. This conditioner is amazing. It applied and rinsed easily, smells great, and conditioned well. It conditioned without making my hair weighted too! My hair was easy to brush through and got stronger and longer. I received this product from Stellar Product testing panel in exchange for my honest review.
Definitely noticed a difference!!
jmprogers from undisclosed
I recently turned 40 (eek!) and with age have noticed that my hair seems to be getting thinner. I had started using another biotin shampoo and conditioner that promised thickness and growth, but only noticed that my hair was getting frizzier. I then received Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Conditioner (as well as their Shampoo) as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and have noticed a significant difference in my hair's texture. Despite it being a cold, static filled winter, I am not longer experiencing the frizz! My hair is definitely softer and more moisturized. I typically wash my hair every 2-3 days. The shampoo
