Has anyone tried any of the Giovanni conditioners?

Hi I'm debating on whether I should by any other their conditioners because I know for sure that I'm going to buy their Direct Leave-in and I wanted to know if any of their other conditioners are any good. How do they compare to other conditioners? Any replies would be helpful!
Thanks :D

    Direct was okay...

    I bought it within a week of trying Elucence and immeditaly shelfed it. Elucence and TJ are the best conditioners I've tried to date. Direct was moisturizing, but it didn't give me the definition that TJ and Elucence provide.

    I envy people who are able to get Elucence and TJ...oh well. Guess I'm just going to have to keep looking for something that's comparable :P

    i haven't tried elucence, but i do like the TJ nourish spa conditioner. I also like giovanni direct, it smells similar to the TJ. as far as my hair definition goes, the only thing that alters it is oil, makes my hair a lot tighter.
    I'm going to Mexico until this bills business blows over.

    I only bought the Direct Leave in once, finished 2/3 of it and never repurchased. Not because it's not good--it is-- but I found something that works better for me. If they sell Jane Carter Nutrient Replenishing Conditoner (not the leave-in) where they sell the Giovanni, I would go for that instead. It's a darn good moisturizing/detangly conditioner -- still not as good as the one I use (Robert Craig) -- but pretty darn good and better than Giov. Also good is Back to Basics Pomegranate Peach which I can get at the supermarket. Of all of them, the Jane Carter is closest to the effect I get with the TJ Nourish and it's actually better (I'm using TJ only for co-washing these days).

    Giovanni 50/50 is excellent. Great for detangling and moisture and its only about $7.00. Of all my conditioners, this is in the top 2 category for sure :)
    Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

    What's your number one conditioner?

    Probably Jessicurl Weekly DT. My hair is so thick that I benefit from using it as a regular condish as well. I love it :) I probably have about 50 conditioners(I wish I was exaggerating)...so I have my own mini conditioner chronicles going on! Once I really weed out things that work and things that dont, I will cut them down to staples only :D (with the occasional PJ indulgence...)

    I really wish I had the money to be a PJ!!! I'm dying to try so many products, but I don't have the money :( I just bought the Solia flat iron and that cost me 88 bucks! Now I'm down to 50 dollars....

    TJ is available at any Trader Joe's, but Trader Joe's isn't in every state. Elucence is mainly available online, and a few select salons. You can go on their website to see if any salons in your area carry it.
