That’s right! Papaya, jojoba, sunflower seed and macadamia are just some of the amazing (and fantabulous smelling) ingredients in Alba Botanica’s Plumeria Replenishing Conditioner. This conditioner is part of Alba’s Hawaiian Hair Care line, and like the companion shampoo it smells amazing and just as I imagine that Hawaii would smell…
Although this is not a leave in conditioner, I use it as such. After shampooing with the companion shampoo I use about a nickels worth of the Plumeria conditioner, working it through my hair, taking special care to get the ends… and I leave it in.
My hair is fine, wavy to curly and has a tendency towards dry, which is why I leave the conditioner in. I used to use both a regular and leave in conditioner but found that this way works just as well.
I find that this conditioner leaves a light scent in my hair that I love, while it conditions very well.
My hair is also long and gets tangled, especially in dry weather. This conditioner easily takes care of my tangles.
While I do find my hair pretty well hydrated, because of the dryness of my hair, even after using this conditioner for a while I could probably use some deep conditioning too. However, I have to say that I cannot recall my hair being as conditioned as it is now with any other conditioner alone… so it is definitely doing its job…
The only reason why I did not give this conditioner a total 5 out of 5 is because Alba did add “cones” in the ingredients which some stay away from at all costs.
