Damaged hair? You’re in luck: L’Oreal set the drugstore hair care standard with this line. This is one of a handful of lines that directly competed with salon products I’ve used in the past.

My Experience

Want to try a drugstore conditioner that will forever change the way you experience drugstore conditioners–for the better? Look no further. This conditioner noticeably improved my hair’s appearance–after the first use!

Psst: The balm of this line is the real star, and I used it as my daily conditioner for months! Read my experience with it here.

It doesn’t “erase” damaged hair, but–yes–you will noticed a change.

  • Silky, “slippy” texture
  • Glides over hair
  • Melts tangles
  • Sinks into hair right away
  • Rinses away cleanly
  • Under $10 at your local drugstore, Target, and Walmart

Whether my hair was dyed, chemically straightened, or virgin–this left it soft to the touch, everytime. (Lovely!)

  • The scent (lingers)

It has a sickeningly sweet scent that is so viciously synthetic-honey-plus-cream-plus-floral it produces a wince. Thankfully, it is less obtrusive in your hair, post rinse.

TL;DR

Damaged hair? This is your drugstore HG bestie. It won’t make your damage entirely disappear, but it will noticeably improve your hair’s texture (for less than $10).
