I was sent the Silk18 Natural Hair Conditioner with Shea Butter & Jojoba Oil by Maple Holistics for review. I’ve previously reviewed the Winter Blend Shampoo and Conditioner.

First Impression:

I was extremely (yes, extremely) eager to try this conditioner. The ingredients have everything that my hair loves and needs- silk amino acids, aloe vera, keratin- to name a few. My hair is super fine and fragile and needs a lot of protein- for strength and moisture- to keep it from drying out and snapping off. From the description alone, I figured this could be a holy grail product for me.

Performance:

The first thing I noticed was the scent. It’s a very strong vanilla scent. It’s pleasant and not at all overwhelming. The conditioner consistency is smooth. It spread quite easily over my hair. It did an excellent job of softening my hair. Immediately, I could feel the difference. My coils and curls and naps clumped together and it was fairly easy to finger detangle my hair.

Pros:

The ingredients are protein based and meant to strengthen. That is absolutely what my hair needs. My hair didn’t necessarily feel strengthened after one use- but that makes it great for daily or weekly conditioning- I assume hair wouldn’t get that hard protein feeling from continued use. The scent was nice and lingered a bit. My bf actually mentioned that my hair smelled nice and he never notices that sort of thing, lol. It was easy to detangle with it and it provided a lot of slip without the need to use tons of product.

Cons:

The biggest con for me is that I’m now in England and can’t get ahold of this product as easily. 🙁

Verdict:

I’m not at all a product junkie. However, I do think I’ve tried a fair share of natural conditioners. This is by fair my favorite one. It works well for my hair and I wouldn’t be surprised if others found it just as moisturizing. The slip is amazing as well. My curls and coils clumped together, making it perfect for using before a wash and go. I would definitely purchase the larger bottle during a sale and make a haul of it. It would be nice with a pump as well. Click here to purchase from Maple Holistics.
