Inexpensive Detangling Conditioner: I am so cheating on HEHH!

I adhere to the shampoo, detangle, deep condition that most natural curlies do. And the detangle session involves the use of an inexpensive conditioner.

I have ooh goo gabs of thick APL hair, detangling my hair is a labor of love, an exercise in patience, and requires ridiculous amounts of conditioner....hence the need to use an inexpensive wasting my good deep conditioner on that.

Ever the PJ (I am a card carrying, board certified, licensed, don't try this at home kids) PRODUCT JUNKIE...I was strolling through the aisles of Walgreen's and I spotted the large bottle (24 oz) of Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Conditioner on sale...$4...the bottle told me to pick it up and put it in my bag so I did.

What I have to say:

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! This product detangled so well I was able to completely finger detangle something I am never able to do! It has a nice light fresh scent, and left my hair feeling soft and ready for my deep conditioner. I will be purchasing again!



  1. Sounds like a product worth trying out. How do you feel about the ingredients?

  2. I do not have a problem with them at all. When I first went natural I was obsessed with all natural, all organic ingredients...but...I thought back to my youth when my hair was past my waist and I realized that what my hair was so healthy and long because of the tlc my mom gave it AND protective styling. My hair diet is sprinkled with great products but I refuse to detangle with my deep condish...I would need to use half of the container! Ok, rant over. What about you? Where do you stand on ingredients?
