    Great slip for my curls!!! Very pleased with the Eco products and will absolutely buy again!!!

  3. chantedesirene (verified owner)

    One of my favorite conditioners for my wavy/curly hair! It’s affordable and easy to find, which can be hard to say for many curly products.

  4. haileymleblanc (verified owner)

    I have thick, often frizzy low porosity type 3 curls I regularly straighten and a thyroid condition that can make my hair dry and brittle; my hair demands greatness. I was a little nervous to buy this product at first granted it has vegetable protein in it and have had bad experiences in the past, but so far my hair has only come out phenomenal with this conditioner paired with a clarifying shampoo. It has a great, somewhat fruity smell that subtly lingers, and my hair feels silky, calm, clean. No frizz nor tangling, and my ends look fairly healthy. I’m hoping with time it works even better but I’m already tempted to try other products in this line.

  5. kourtharris (verified owner)

    This conditioner is phenomenal! This is the only product on the market my 3c-4a natural curly hair responds to! I was skeptical at first because I wasn’t sure if it would work on my hair type but after the first use, I donated my other products! This is a permanent staple in my hair routine. I use both the leave in and deep moisturize conditioner and my hair is thriving!!

  6. alexad1989 (verified owner)

    I LOVED this conditioner. I bought the tea tree shampoo and conditioner and the smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner to see what I liked more. I can’t choose. They both are amazing. My husband and our son also use it, from wavy to curly, amazing results with this.

  7. Karen Asbeck (verified owner)

    I have always had extremely shiny, healthy hair, but lately my hair has been frizzy and i couldn’t figure it out. We did a pH test on our water and discovered that it’s super alkaline and I know from testing hair solutions that the higher the alkalinity the more your hair frizzes because it raises the hair follicles. Also the reason that “volumizing” products work, they are higher in alkalinity. That said, even with my bad water, this conditioner made my hair look totally smooth and shiny again and without silicone!! I’ll update my review if it changes after we install a water purifier. But for now I’ma huge fan!!

  8. Renee Hall (verified owner)

    So far not bad. I was hoping for more smooth feel to my hair. When wet still hard to comb through.

  9. glazeskrew (verified owner)

    After searching for so long to find a conditioner that was easy on the scalp, super conditioning, and also contained a bit of protein, I’ve now stumbled across this! My holy grail. Fell in love after only a few uses. My hair feels light, bouncy, and full of life. Detangles so well and has amazing slip. And best of all, doesn’t irritate my very sensitive scalp! Amazing. I’m so glad I found this!

    I have recently started my journey on the curly girl method and I love how this conditioner softens my hair without weighing it down. I will be buying it again.

  11. Belinda Jones (verified owner)

    I am so happy that I purchased this product. I split my hair in half and added the conditioner to my ends and worked towards the scalp. I did not have to use much on both sides because of the quality of the conditioner. I have never conditioned my hair without having to use a great deal of conditioner. This product surprised me with how it worked through my strands. Adding a little water made it even better to work through. My hair was moisturized and soft after using both the shampoo and conditioner set. I was afraid it wouldn’t do much for my coils but I was very wrong. These will be my go-to products from now on.

  12. tarabryant12 (verified owner)

    Love how soft this conditioner masks my hair without making it greasy! Also love how light it is, it makes rinsing it out my thick hair so much easier!

  13. Vasavi Venkatesh (verified owner)

    I have been using Giovanni products for the past few years but first time using this conditioner. I LOVE it! My hair is 2C/3A and it gives it keep my hair soft and hydrated. Definitely recommend it.

  14. samccoy3 (verified owner)

    Beautiful orange blossom scent. Makes my hair feel light and hydrated. Never feels greasy. Perfection.

  15. j.denee89 (verified owner)

    This conditioner works like a dream on my low porosity hair. Instead of coating the hair strands with moisture to give it slip, it actually infuses the strands with moisture. My hair feels super soft even after I rinse it out. The texture of this product isn’t too thick, which is great for fine hair. Moreover, it still packs a punch in terms of moisture, which is why I can use it on my 4C kinks and coils. Smells like citrus. I’ll admit it’s pricey, but I love it.

  16. maplecampbell (verified owner)

    This conditioner makes my 4c hair press straight beautifully. I love it.

  17. kiliciaew (verified owner)

    I have been following the curly girl hair method for over a year now and have tried so many different shampoos and conditioners from just about every brand that is approved through the method. I must say the smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner are by far my favorites. I discovered my hair loves protein and I know everyone is on the line about the type of protein this line uses. I used to put protein drops in my old shampoos and conditioners to get similar results.

    I don’t think my hair has been this balanced in a long time. I normally only wash my hair once a week so by mid week my hair used to be a fizzy mess an would need to be rewashed and restyled. But this shampoo and conditioner combination combined with the spray leave in has done wonders for my quick morning refreshes. I don’t get much frizz at all and this is amazing. I’m currently pregnant and toss and turn all night more than ever before. And my pineapple or scrunchie always comes out so there hasn’t been much protection for my curls over night. I just spray some water in my hair in the morning follow with a few spritz of the leave in and foam if I need it.

    I also got the Nutra Fix as deep conditioner and I use it every other week. I love the smell of all them. Very lemony but not a smell that lingers all day.

    for reference my hair and curl type are: thick, medium porosity, 2b-3a curls.

  18. browndogz (verified owner)

    Disappointing. Must be too heavy & it pretty much flattened my curly hair.

  19. mommy2enc (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this regularly for the last year on my naturally wavy/curly hair. This is my go to. It’s a great detangler and my hair just soaks up the moisture. I’ve also used it as a co-wash and had great success.

  20. dana.hummel09 (verified owner)

    Just started courtly girl method and I’m enjoying this conditioner but I think all the products I ordered (tee tree shampoo, reconstuctor deep condition and styling gel may have too much protein for my hair right now. I think I may need to add some non protein products into my rotation to see if this helps (maybe the leave in and olive oil conditioner from this company will work.

  21. Sandra Sultan (verified owner)

    I have fine curly hair but a lot of it. This Smooth as Silk conditioner is my holy grail it just melts my tangles away and leaves my hair with a a lot of bounce and shine for days. Will be stocking up on this condish for sure.

  22. Jennifer Sajovec (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE this conditioner for my Curly Girl Method routine. I use it during wash day as a conditioner and sometimes as a co-wash when I don’t need a low poo. The pump in the larger size is fantastic since I need a TON to truly detangle my hair.

  23. Kimberly McDaniel (verified owner)

    I liked the product. However, the site itself is a bit problematic. It can be difficult to navigate on mobile. There is also an offer at the top of the site that states 3 free samples at checkout- I did not get an option to add the samples. On my next order, I cannot add the samples to my cart.

  24. JoAnna Dandino (verified owner)

    Soft hair! Lots of slip! So glad I purchased the 24oz bottle!!!

  25. Amber Hodges (verified owner)

    This conditioner is amazing. I have really curly hair that needs lots of moisture and this does a great job on it

  26. Natalie Berry (verified owner)

    I love this conditioner! It really makes a difference in the way my fine, half wavy-half straight hair feels and looks, it is so much softer and more manageable!

  27. Sydney McKim (verified owner)

    I love this so much. Feather light weight on my fine hair, but so moisturizing. It has great slip and I can easily finger detangle my waves and reform clumps. I love that it has protein. My new go-to conditioner.

  28. Jessica Hairfield (verified owner)

    I love this conditioner! Will definitely buy again.

  29. marisa_jerrell (verified owner)

    My hair loves this conditioner and it smells good too!

  30. Heather Zaun (verified owner)

    This conditioner is wonderful. Great slip, moisturizing yet not to heavy to weigh down my curls. Works great with the smooth as silk shampoo or by itself as a co-wash. Highly recommend!

  31. Anne Norrick (verified owner)

    Giovanni conditioners are the best that I have found for my dry curly hair. Great slip, but still very moisturizing.

  32. Valerie Whitney (verified owner)

    I initially purchased this in a store and they stopped carrying it, so I’ve come to the source to get the stuff! Works really well on my curly, frizzy 3B/C type hair. Really great slip, makes detangling easy!

  33. pegsustitches (verified owner)

    I really like this conditioner. Its nourishing. Smells great. I use with an oil to detangle before washing, and it works great for that. Also works well as a leave in conditioner.

  34. Alyssa (verified owner)

    I have used this conditioner for around ten years. It is truly perfect for my hair! I dye my hair funky colors, and this conditioner both prevents wash out while treating damage from the dye. It makes my hair very silky and shiny while allowing it to maintain bounce and wave.

  35. Susan

    My coily 4a/b/c African American hair loves this stuff. I do have to use a ton of it, but as soon as this stuff touches my locks I can feel the difference. Once, before I knew my hair didn’t like protein, I used a protein shampoo and conditioner, and my hair matted and tangled so bad that I came close to cutting it all off rather than try to detangle. It was a horrible mess. Giovanni deeper moisture literally saved my hair that day. It was still a chore to detangle but a manageable chore. It’s pricier than what I normally spend on shampoo/conditioner but it’s worth it to me.

  36. Marie (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this conditioner. It leaves my hair moisturized and manageable. I have long & curly hair and follow the Curly Girl Method.

  37. Tiffany Kromer

    Wonderful product!

  38. Toni

    I repurchase this product every time I run out! It makes my hair so silky soft and is great for curls.

  39. AS ohio

    Works well enough for smooth waves but citrus makes tight cylindrical curls hard to comb. A little more sea kelp please, maybe some wheat germ. Compared to NYC curls or Aveda dry remedy moisture; this is a very close second but without that slip we’re all after. Takes a lot of product for afro dense hair! For the money, I would miss this product if it went away though.
