Andalou Naturals Sweet Orange & Argan Moisture Rich Conditioner (whew, that was a mouthful!) is a product designed to benefit dry, curly, textured hair.  As a natural, this is right up my alley.  This product ($9.99 for 11.5 fl. oz.) from my local Whole Foods.  The sweet orange is supposed to revitalize the hair follicles and healthy circulation while the Argan oil, which is rich in Omega’s, claims to deeply penetrate the hair strands.  This conditioner claims to (1) repair and restore moisture, elasticity, and strength; (2) minimize split ends and frizz; (3) add amazing luster and shine.

This conditioner definitely has an orange scent to it.  When I first opened it and smelled it, I was instantly reminded of an orange creamsicle!  I am a lover of thick, creamy, conditioners.  When I applied a little on the back of my hand, and turned it upside down, the conditioner did not budge.  Now, given that it my hair is thick (and getting longer), I’m tempted to try to stretch this conditioner some, kind of like how I stretch my beloved Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner.  I need to get my $9.99 worth, since I like to coat all of my hair and do deep conditioning treatments weekly.

The instructions said to apply to clean, wet hair.  I first washed my hair with Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo.  Now, I wouldn’t say this shampoo leaves my hair “stripped” but, I can definitely tell that I needed to get some moisture back into my hair asap!  When I applied the conditioner, it immediately melted into my hair.  I mean, my hair instantly felt like it absorbed the conditioner.

There was no mentioning of how long to leave the conditioner on my hair so, I just sat under my Huetiful hair steamer for 30 minutes.  After I finished steaming my natural hair and rinsed out the conditioner, my hair felt like butter.  It felt so soft I almost didn’t feel like mixing up a batch of my leave-in conditioner to apply!

This conditioner does have Dimethicone listed in the ingredients.  So, for all of those naturalistas that are going the cone-free route, either steer clear of this conditioner or, make sure you use a clarifying shampoo to rid your hair of any buildup.  I would definitely recommend this product if you have hair that is in need of moisture.  Whether you’re hair is in it’s natural state or relaxed, we are always in need of a moisturizing conditioner treatment.

Now remember, we all have different hair types.  What works for me may not work for you (and vice versa).  So please keep in mind that these are the results I had.

Thanks for your support!  Here’s to a happy and healthy hair journey!
