Pros & Cons


– great smell

-thick and creamy

-eye catching packaging

-certified organic

-does improve hair shine


-The only thing I can think of is it is a bit pricier than your average conditioner…but then again, it is a certified organic product which usually tends to be more expensive.

My overall opinion

I have been using this conditioner every time I wash my hair for the past 3 months or so.  Is this product worth it?  I say yes!  First of all, this product smells delightful.  I guess scent is a personal preference so if you don’t agree, Alba Botanicals makes a number of different conditioner scents.  Secondly, I wouldn’t say this conditioner made my hair “vibrantly shiny” like it says on the packaging but I definitely see an improvement in the sheen and texture of my hair.  It worked nicely for me!  Third, this conditioner is smooth, thick and creamy making it easy to massage and spread evenly through hair.
