More Moisture Baobab Conditioner
I have very fine, very long, very curly blonde hair. It needs a ton of moisture to keep the curls sleek and defined, so I bought the More Moisture Burt's Bees conditioner. (I co-wash, only use a dab of shampoo every month or so.)
The consistency is so bizarre, like sunscreen lotion mixed with a bunch of water. It was so thin and watery that it just dripped off my hair and hands before it ever had a chance of saturating the strands.
There was virtually zero degree of slip, so it effectively set any tangles and knots I had as opposed to helping to loosen them. My fingers actually got so tangled while I was trying to comb it through that I thought I might have to cut them out.
I had to use almost half of the bottle in one cleansing.
While my hair was air drying, it felt stiff and tacky, like I had just coated it in a layer of paint.
Afterwards, my curls were limp and lifeless, and yet crazy afro-frizzy at the same time.
My hair DID feel soft to the touch once it was fully dry, but seriously... it looked so awful that it was kind of comical, like I made it look bad on purpose.
Bottom line: I wouldn't even recommend this product to my worst enemy.

Wouldn't suggest it.
I'm african american and I have normal hair. I needed a conditioner without sulfates that can moisturize my hair. It made my hair soft and straight but I think it pulled my hair out. I said I think because I used both the shampoo and conditioner and I don't know which one did it or they both did it. I left a review on the shampoo saying the same thing I'm about to say and that is I wouldn't suggest you use this. After I started using burtsbees hair products my hair would come out but when I stopped then my hair stopped coming out. It would only come out right after I washed it and then after my hair would dry it didn't come out anymore.

Thick coarse hair will thank you!
Okay so after reading the less than stellar reviews i was a little scared to try this product. I have incredibly thick coarse and dry curly hair down past my shoulders. I have also been plagued by about 3 years worth of infuriatingly dry, itchy and flaking scalp issues. I started with just the shampoo which was amazing. Each subsequent shampoo provided even more relief and a noticible difference in the amount of flaking and i knew i needed to try the conditoner. Finally after about 3 shampoos (which is about 9 days for me as overwashing is the kiss of death for my dry curls) i gave in and bought the conditioner (despite the fact that i have an almost full bottle of a pricier brand). I have been using both for about a month now and my scalp is itch and flake free and my curls seems lighter/bouncier. I cannot rave enough abot how wonderful this product is! I can understand how it may be too oily for those without coarse dry hair but for those that have thick dry locks i believe your hair will thank you. I am only sorry it took me so long to discover how amazing this stuff is I don't know how i survived for so long without it! Oh and my wallet is thanking me too considering i've poured hundreds down the drain searching for a product that does even 1/2 of what this does!

Changed My Life
I have thick, curly (2c), frizzy hair. About four or five months ago I decided to go sulfate and silicone free with my shampoos and conditioners so as to combat these issues. Drug store brands just weren't doing the trick.
Thank goodness I decided to change products. I use this in combination with baby bee shampoo and wash. My hair is soooooo much healthier. It still has a little frizz (that's just the nature of my hair) but it is drastically better than before. There are less tangles and my hair is now softer, shinier, and well hydrated.
As well, those people worried about the price really shouldn't. Before, I had to use loads of conditioner on my hair to make a difference. Now I use so much less with even better results. Definitely a bargain.
I am so grateful to have found this product. Thank you Burt's Bees!!!!!!
