For naturally greasy hair, this is a rare find!
I have a really love-hate relationship with conditioner because I have relatively short, quite thick hair that gets greasy very quickly, and usually find that conditioners fast track the grease whilst making everything very flat and lifeless; often I go without conditioner and rely on just shampoo and deal with the lack of hydration. This conditioner, however, has been amazing, especially combined with Sukin's Natural Balance shampoo. My hair has texture, life, feels hydrated, and as a result I don't have to pile on sea salt spray and other products to try and recreate those benefits - and accelerate the grease at the same time...
If you're someone who has naturally greasy hair and are already weary of conditioner, measuring out an almost irrelevant amount when you use it, then I recommend giving this one a crack. I'll be using this again for sure!
Sukin Naturals Balance Conditioner
This was probably my favourite product out of the Sukin range that I tried. I used this with the Sukin shampoo which I felt complimented it and this product helped improve the results where I did not quite have the same success with the shampoo. It was very light and had a great natural smelling scent. I did feel like my hair quickly absorbed the product which meant I had to use a lot more to get results so I would go through this rather quickly. After using this product for more than a week while it did slightly improve my hair manageability and I did enjoy it and see some difference I feel like there were many other conditioners I have used in the past that have given me better results. My hair was still quite knotted after and required a lot of brushing however if your hair is quite a normal type and doesn’t tangle very easily I feel like you would have a lot of success in using this and it would be a great everyday conditioner to use.
Nice, but could be more hydating!
I have found the Sukin Naturals Balance Conditioner to be quite nice to use from a sensory experience (smell, texture) but once my hair is dried I feel like my hair is longing for a little more moisture.
Having said that, when paired with the Shampoo and Leave-In Conditioner treatment, this product is really lovely to use. I have a sensitive scalp and have found zero issues with this line, which is rare for a drug-store brand.
I would recommend this to anyone with a sensitive scalp, but be mindful to consider complementing products if your hair is on the drier side!
Not suitable for wavy hair
This product is really not suitable for my hair type. I've wavy, thick hair and this provided me with absolutely zero moisture. My hair felt and looked like straw. Seeing other, more positive reviews of this product I'm assuming this is just not suitable to my specific type of hair. It could work for someone with not only oily but also very thin and flat hair. The scent is pleasant like the rest of the series. I'd like to see a pump dispenser both on this conditioner as well as on the shampoo. I will be passing this product on to someone with more oily hair as it's like putting water on my hair.
Light conditioner not overly moisturising.
As mentioned in my other reviews my hair is psoriasis prone with oily roots. I have to wash my hair every 2nd day or my hair will look very oily. I have fine hair so it looks flat if I don't use a volumising product.
I used the shampoo, scalp scrub and leave in conditioner in this range. I can say I was surprised that it did not make my hair flat or overly moisturised.
It have a nice clean. When using a conditioner i usually only apply to bottom 10cm of my hair to ensure it doesnt go up to my roots.
This shampoo and conditioner alone gave my hair a different feeling to other products. Not dry, not oily, not silky. Just clean.
As everything in this range i find that its light. Which is not a bad thing, guess it depends on your hair type. I think if you want something light weight without naturals this is your type of product.
For me i dont mind it as if i want more moisture i xan use the leave in conditioner or add a serum which i rarely do as I don't want my hair being weighed down.
Leaves my hair feeling soft and light.
I'm a fan of this Sukin range! For a natural alternative, it works well and has a nice scent to it. I find that to works with my thin hair as I have lots of it and always need the help of a conditioner for detangling. I'm using the entire range - shampoo, conditioner, scrub and leave-in conditioner - and I've been finding that my hair stays cleaner for longer and feels soft the entire time. It also feels softer. So far it's beating the $40 shampoo and $40 conditioner combo I used to use. Will definitely keep using!
Fine Hair review
I have only used Sukin face products in the past so was really excited to try their hair care line. Similar to how I felt about the shampoo, I felt like I had to add a bit more product to get the silky feeling that I like when conditioning my hair, I felt like I was walking out of the shower with a bit of a birds nest that hadn't been de-tangled (thank god for the leave in conditioner!) In saying this, I do have very fine hair and the occasional dry scalp so perhaps I need a slightly heavier conditioner..
No nasties and added bounce
I love this conditioner as I have thick and quite wavy/curly hair so find it hard to find conditioners that are hydrating enough without weighing it down. I enjoy using this as part of the Sukin naturals balance range and found it added bounce and hydration to my limp hair. I love knowing that it has no added nasties and is vegan and parabans free. Sukin is a great brand and I am looking to get more into that line of products so I loved trialing this. I haven't used any products from their haircare before trialing this range so I'm impressed with this introduction and will continue to use it.
Thank you BC and Sukin!
Clean Conditioner Without Residue
Overall I really like this conditioner. It is a very clean product that conditioned my hair without leaving a residue. The ends of my hair look and feel super heathy since using this product. The bottle is also super easy to use and to get the formula out. The scent is also super pleasant and isn't too overbearing as it is chemical fragrance free.
I would definitely recommend purchasing this conditioner especially for it's price point. Often times clean conditioners can be upwards of $20+ and this is around $15 so great value!
Vegan, natural and actually works!
Just like the Sukin shampoo, this conditioner is perfect for people with keratin treated hair as it does not contain any parabens or sulphates like most products on the market do.
The conditioner leaves my hair feeling refreshed and soft. I have thin hair so some conditioners can leave this looking flat or greasy but this leaves me a nice amount of volume and happy scalp!
The smell is nice and refreshing and really have that natural smell.
I love that Sukin are vegan and cruelty free and also use all natural products. I will definitely continue using this conditioner in the future.
great everyday conditioner
This conditioner is perfect for people that have healthy hair, with no real hair concerns. If you're using this for a specific concern e.g. heat damage, coloured hair, it might not be enough to treat that. I usually follow conditioner with either argan oil or another leave in treatment, so I got extra moisture after using this conditioner. I'm not sure how effective it would be as a stand-alone product for conditioning. But I think it is good as an addition to an existing hair care routine.
I found that I did have to use less of this product than I do with other conditioners, to avoid getting that 'weighed down' feeling, so something to consider for people with fine hair.
Overall, a pretty good product. For the low price point, it does a great job at conditioning hair.
Lovely scent, natural and fresh finish
I am a big fan of sukin products and was really excited to try this product when I received a sample. I really loved the vanilla, tangerine, mandarin and lavender scent of this conditioner. It is fragrant but not too overpowering and leaves hair with a faint fragrance of the product. It was easy to use and made my hair feel lovely and fresh. The inclusion of the botanical extracts was a nice touch and I like that the product is free of parabens. I am really enjoying using this product as part of my haircare routine!
Not a fan
This product has the signature Sekin scent, which personally I do like and I find that it has a spa like quality to it. This whole line has that scent (Shampoo, Conditioner, Leave in Conditioner & Scalp Scrub) and it's one of the parts I enjoy most. The texture of the conditioner is nice, however I did not like the results I had from the product. I find that it is a bit too heavy for my hair and that I needed to wash more often - For reference, I have fine hair but a lot of it. I do think that it holds up well enough as a natural option that is available in grocery and drug stores and would recommend trying it to see if it works for you, if natural haircare is something you are after at an affordable price. Personally, I have other natural haircare products I prefer to buy from salons or slon supply stores.
I am always up for trying new shampoos and conditioners, so i was excited to receive this. The smell first off is a lovely citrus scent, which is always great. As a natural conditioner, free from nasties, it does perform slightly differently than your standard conditioners and I did find I had to use slightly more product than usual. When combined with the Sukin Shampoo it left my hair feeling super silky soft.
Overall, the Sukin conditioner did leave my hair feeling soft and silky and I will continue to use when I do not need anything too heavy.
Naturally no nasties and moisturising to boot
I really found this conditioner a great natural product. My hair definitely enjoyed some time off all the nasties used in other products- especially since I’m a “non-natural” blonde who has mistreated my hair a fair bit already. It also had a really nice smell (without any “earthy” scent that sometimes comes with “natural” products) which was a pleasant surprise. The conditioner seemed to work really quickly to soak in and my hair definitely felt moisturised and refreshed after using. Would definitely recommend as a good natural product.
A new go-to
I've always loved Sukin hair products, so I was really excited to try this new range. I was particularly interested to hear that this range doesn't contain sulfates. This product isn't going to have your ends super moisturised like a standard shampoo with sulfates might, however I really liked that this feels gentler and more natural. I tend to wash my hair every two days and I would probably pick this product every second wash, alternating with a more intense hydrating conditioner.
Like the shampoo of the same range, this product also has a lovely refreshing citrus and lavender scent which I really liked.
This is a great smelling natural conditioner! But that is all that I enjoyed about this conditioner. However, this made my dry hair even more dry. I was really disappointed with this as the shampoo worked really well with my hair. I tried to use it in different ways: either wringing out most the water in my hair, leaving some water in, using it sparingly: but it just did not work well for me. I have dry, thick hair. Perhaps on thin hair or normal hair it may work abit better. I would not recommend it for dry and thick hair.
Absolutely love this range
This was my first time using sukin hair products so I did not know what to expect. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week and have fine and thin hair that has recently been coloured. I did not notice this range affecting my coloured hair at all. I like that it has natural ingredients and that sukin is transparent about what goes into their products. It has a nice scent and is easy to use. It lathers nicely so I only need to use a small amount. I have only been washing my hair 1-2 times a week since starting this product and my hair feels great. For the price I am really happy with the results of this product.
Wonderful conditioner for all hair types
I have really enjoyed trying this Conditioner as part of the ReviewCrew.
I wash my hair daily and it has really made a change to the over look and feel of my hair. My hair has such a lovely shine to it without feeling greasy or oily like how other conditioners usually leave my hair feeling.
I would definitely recommend this conditioner to others, especially those who wash their hair daily.
There's also not a super strong fragrance which is really pleasant because I find over fragranced hair products unpleasant.
Not hydrating enough
I used this conditioner together with the matching shampoo. It's a very light conditioner and texture wise it's similar to a creamy facial cleanser. I have thick normal hair and did not find that it was hydrating enough for my hair type. After using it for a week straight, my hair still felt tangled and knotted and I had a hard time detangling it after the shower. Compared to other conditioners, I also had to use more conditioner (3-4 tablespoons) which made me feel like I would go through the product rather quickly.
