(MALIN+GOETZ) cilantro hair conditioner

We love using cilantro in the kitchen, but now it has an important role in the bathroom, too. This gentle daily conditioner calls on the leafy greens to refresh all hair types. Formulated without oils or scalp-irritating silicones, it delivers shiny, residue-free locks.

Nothing Special
Sampled

I got this sample in my April box and have tried it a few times. I haven't really noticed anything different about my hair yet.

Pros: 1. I LOVE the smell! 2. It made my hair feel really soft without feeling weighed down.

Cons: 1. Lovely smell does not have staying power in the hair. 2. $22 for 8 ounces is expensive! I believe in using good hair products, but I can get a great one for considerably less.

Great conditioner... if you can stand the smell
Sampled

I have long, thick hair and I normally use a whole hand's worth of conditioner. This conditioner did an amazing job using only half the tiny bottle, but the smell in the shower was way too strong for my taste.

It was okay.. I mean, Cilantro ?
Sampled

Hearing the words, "cilantro" and "hair conditioner" doesn't really go together.. this product was okay. Nothing spectacular.

Indifferent

The result of the conditioner doesn't really feel any different from any other decent conditioner. I'm just glad it didn't literally smell like cilantro, as that's not a scent/flavor for everyone.

Eh.

This conditioner smells GREAT. However I didn't really notice a difference. I have thick hair and will only get about 2 uses from this sample which is a bummer. I would really like to try it out more.

Great - for me
Purchased

I really like this conditioner and will generally shampoo every other day, squeeze the water out and then apply this but then not rinse out. I do not have buildup/flakes and it is not greasy. I don't find the scent to be cilantro at all. Difficult to explain it but it's nice and refreshing. I also like the (unisex) packaging quite a bit. If you like deep conditioning, I'd say try using this daily and then using a masque (or heavier conditioner) a few times/week. Recommended!

Doesn't weigh my hair down
Purchased

I have fine flat hair and this conditions, softens, and adds sheen without weighing it down. The smell is interesting-more like licorice than cilantro- but it compliments the Malin+Goetz Peppermint shampoo very well.

Moisturizing without being heavy

This conditioner is great for my color-treated normal-dry hair. I have used some highly touted brands recommended for my hair type that left my hair looking dirty after 24-hours, even in cold dry weather, but not this one -- it leaves my hair silky without weighing it down, and smells great.

Very light--both good and bad
Purchased

I LOVE the peppermint shampoo, but I'm not as sold on this one. It may be because I switched to it after using moroccanoil shampoo/conditioner, but this doesn't feel like it penetrates my hair well. It feels super thick and creamy in my hands, but it doesn't feel that way in my hair. Plus, while my hair does feel pretty good after using the shampoo, it doesn't feel much softer after using the conditioner. Also, my hair (very fine and curly) tangles more easily with this than it has with other conditioners.

On the plus side, this doesn't weigh my hair down at all, which is usually my biggest issue with conditioners. Plus, I don't really like cilantro but I found the smell to be really tolerable, especially after the amazing peppermint shampoo.

I'd say this is a good conditioner to use if you're looking for very lightweight moisture but I wouldn't recommend it if you have super dry hair or like very creamy conditioners.
