Rating: I never thought I would like a conditioner so much that doesn't break the bank and actually works for my extremely dry hair. This base is amazing, it holds a lot of scents, additives, oils and butters. It is amazing when combined with buriti oil and brazil nut oil, and sunflower extract. By far, one of the best products at ND.

Rating: Very thick and creamy, performs well, non-greasy. Rinses out nicely. However I do find it liquifies even with 1% EO added so I would recommend 0.5% at the most.
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: This base is great to work with and provides impressive results.
For those who have issues with thickness when transferring to bottles or from 4 gallon jug it very very easy if you heat the product it liquifies. it is at this state I add EO and extracts.
I have used both stove top and microwave with same result. Once cooled it returns to its thicker state.
I boil water in a large pot and place 4L jug - Lid OFF into the water once removed from heat, let it sit for 5 or so minutes until it starts to thin. I then transfer desired amount to pot or glass bowl and continue to heat by microwave or stove top until consistency of water. I use a funnel to transfer to bottles. Works like a charm every time.
Rating: Love this conditioner! It is right up there with the high end products you buy at the salon. For myself I have really dry damaged hair so I add a little bit of argan oil and it leaves my hair feeling amazing. My mom has really bad psoriasis on her scalp so I mix hers up with a little tea tree oil, some rosemary eo and the some fo and she loves it too!

Rating: I tried this product and found it left my hair very dry and greasy... I had to re wash my hair with my shampoo to get it silky again... If anyone has any recipes or ideas I would really appreciate it. I did add some Aloe Vera juice like someone else had.
Rating: The conditioner is another excellent ND product base. I got carried away with some actives and added up to 6% of the following extracts and EOs: chamomile and green tea; and Multifruit BSC; and lemongrass EO.
The product retains it's texture and thickness. I could not put in a narrow necked bottle; instead used a wide mouthed jar. I'll have to try another time to gently warm and liquefy the base with perhaps some aloe vera juice or distilled water. This is the only negative about the product. Otherwise, it's excellent and my hair feels wonderful and soft after using.
By:Elizabeth, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Dec-2005
Rating: I feel it could use a little more detangling, but overall a great product. I just add a little oil and a bit of silk powder at it's perfect! As for getting into small neck bottles, after mixing, put it all into a zip-lock, snip the corner and pipe it into your bottles. Works great for me.
By:Vanessa, Manitouwadge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jan-2011
Rating: This conditioner is amazing! It leaves my matted, dry, coloured, and permed..(Yes, I said PERMED!) hair easy to comb out, and leaves my blonde locks (:)) soft and shiny. Will be purchasing more!
Rating: This is my first ever conditioner. Looks good, mixes easily but how do I put it in those bottles with narrow necks easily?
By:Rava, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011
Rating: Amazing product! I combined it with rosemary eo, aloe vera gel juice, lavender eo as fragrance and the end product was truly awesome. The results upon using the product can be compared to those very expensive hair conditioner. I will re order again.

Rating: Great price and product. I can apply this to my scalp "without" irritation and comb through my waist length hair easily. The conditioner gets liberally applied with the addition of meadowfoam and rosemary oils. Although this conditioner on its own doesn't soften my hair (I am almost 45 - so drier hair is part of aging), it makes it manageable when wet which is another important quality I look for in a conditioner. Never stop selling this!
Rating: great conditioner! I switched from expensive commercial conditioners and will not go back! I did not add anything to it, I use as-is. I have curly hair that is dyed brown and, not only, does it does not strip color but it keeps my curls moisturized, bouncy, and shiny!
By:Erin, Saint-Thomas, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Feb-2013
Rating: I just bought this conditioner and it's nicely thick. Made my son's curly hair very soft. The price is great and I will buy it again.
Rating: A wonderful conditioner that leaves the hair shiny and soft, but still clean and alive. No build up or heaviness left behind. Accepts a conditioning oil well.
By:Carrie, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Jan-2011
Rating: This conditioner base is amazing! The girls in our family, myself included have extremely dry hair and we have tried many products including very expensive salon products. This works equally well has high priced salon conditioners but without all the chemicals, I love this product and will re-order it again!
Rating: Being a hairstylist for the last 15 years I have to say this is the best conditioner I have ever used. Mix it with some Camillia seed oil and leave in for 10 minutes and you have a treatment for dry hair that will by far surpass any expensive professional products out there. Trust a hairstylist , when I say you have to try this product. Wow!
By:Tara, Etobicoke, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Apr-2012
Rating: Very nice product and leaves hair soft, silky and shining. Blends very well with EO and carrier oils suited to repair and strengthen hair. The consistency is very thick and getting it into a bottle is a challenge. I use a zip lock bag and cut the corner out of it to dispense it into bottles or use a cake decorating bag.... and then to get it out of the bottle I put a lotion pump on the bottle.

Rating: Love this product! Our entire family had been suffering with itchy scalps when using commercial shampoo and conditioner, even one that advertised as SLS free. Mixed this base with tea tree EO, geranium EO, rosemary EO, and phytokeratin and the end product was refreshing. It took a while to get used to the conditioner, as there was not as much "slip" as with commercial products but hair became much softer and conditioned after a week or so. My hairdresser even commented on the condition of my hair. I had to start making double batches because my 14 year old son kept taking my bottle from my bathroom to his shower - it is the only conditioner he will use.
Rating: Absolutely love this conditioner. You don't need to use a lot to get great results. Definitely a product I will buy again, because on its own or with EO's it is a fantastic product.
By:Cindy, Angus, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Dec-2011
Rating: Another wonderful product which I have used now for 3 weeks, no more itchy scalp, no more burning, no more scabs, it lathers really well, and I added essential oils to it. Thank you will buy this again

Rating: Gives SHINE. Loves the consistancy of the product. I'v add a bit of phytokeratine.
Rating: I just love this product!
It holds on the scent very well, you really don't need a lot of it (less than my usual store-bought conditioner), and it leaves the hair really light and silky. A must try!
By:Amelie, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2009
Rating: This conditioner is great and a little bit goes a long way. Very rich and creamy with a slight scent of shea butter. Doesn't weigh down hair and I have very fine hair that can easily be weighed down. Highly recommended.
Rating: WOW! I am sooo happy with this conditioner! Super easy to customize for what your hair needs! It holds EO's extremely well and is awesome at detangling, even on my extremely curly hair! Doesn't leave hair feeling slimyand coated like store bought brands. I love it and will definitely be reordering it!
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2006
Rating: I am new unto this hobby. I love the quality of this conditioner but I am just having problem putting it on a container because of it's thickness. Can someone help me what type of bottle I should use on this or is there any technique I should know about?
Rating: I love this conditioner. It holds scent really well, and even though I've experimented with exceeding the recommended .5% additive rate on small batches, I've fount it to still hold it's consistency at 1.5% dilutions with essential oils, and leaves a lovely scent on my hair. Provides excellent conditioning as well - not too much, not too little.
By:Karen, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-May-2006
Rating: It's my first time purchase from ND. This conditioner feels so nice and fresh as I mixed it with palmarosa EO. I also added a very small amount of ricebran and camellia seed oil ( total additives not more than 0.5 % as suggested ) to it as a trial but the outcome is so fabulous!
Rating: A great conditioner for long hair. Great at detangling.
I would prefer it to be available in larger sizes.
By:Tracy, Fauquier, British Columbia

Rating: This conditioner base is great. A limited amount will go a long way to give hair a silky texture and shine. A very easy to incorporate additives to focus on specific hair care requirements.
