    Someone uses it that was chimed in on the coarse haired curlies thread. I can't remember who though. Scan through it.

    Yes! I used it for a few months when I first started wearing my hair 'out' almost a year ago. When I ran out I started trying new products, and never went back to it.

    I just bought a new bottle and will be using it again when I run out of my current conditioner. If I remember correctly it's very moisturizing and detangling. It's also protein free, but does contain amino acids (way down on the product list).
    YES WE CAN!

    I've used it, and it's an excellent conditioner. Good for CO and for a regular rinse out. The smell it kinda sickening-sweet(to me), but that's a small negative. And it's easy to find(w/o having to order online).

    It has really good slip, so it's great for detangling and has just enough moisture to leave the hair soft w/o too much weight.

    Comparable to Elucence(but more consistent with slip, IMO).
    A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    Hey....I didn't know that someone started a thread on one of my HG. I totally love this conditioner. It is excellent for co-washes. It lathers up just like a poo for me but releases mega moisture to my dry, frizzy curls. I also use this as a deep condish and have experimented with it as a leave-in. It is truly a multipurpose product for me. I love it but what I love most about it is that it's protein-free AND I can get it on the ground!

    I love this conditioner as well. I use it as a deep conditioner and its wonderful. It has good slip and is ultra moisturizing. I second the wish for a cheap gallon size.

    Oh, cool! I have a twin:) Man, a gallon size would be nice. The largest I've found is the liter but it lasts me forever. This stuff is so great. There's no need to overload it in my hair to get the tangles out. I usually have to do this with other cheapie conditioners. I also don't have to follow up with a rinse-out condish like I would if I were co-washing Suave or White Rain. I :love5: TIGI!

    you should definitely try it. when my cheapie conditioners fail to give my hair the 'smooth' feeling, moisture maniac never falls short. i always get consistent results.

    I just purchased this week as well. I had been wanting to try it at Teshon's recommendation. I am just getting around to doing it. I had been smelling it and reading on it at the store each time I go in. But I have so many conditioners around here, that I had to put it on hold. I consistently use the Suave's and the VO5's. But I prefer to just use one conditioner instead of two that will do it all...provide slip, moisture, softness, and the ability to detangle. I don't co-wash as much as I did when my hair was much shorter. So, I cannot wait to try this. It is another one of those really good conditioners that seems to be able do it all.

    The ones in the store only give about 8 oz and are pretty expensive in my book. So, I was searching online at Amazon, com....they offer the 25.6 oz at $13.53 and free shipping. It is the better deal for me.

    I really like the mm. It's good for co-washing and as a leave-in (diluted) It is VERY moisturizing and gives a ton of slip. I also like the smell.

    The only thing is that after using the mm for awhile I have to use a conditioner with more protein, because my hair will feel super elastic and overly soft if I don't.

    Other than that I'd definitely recommend it. I have the big bottle with the pump that I got on sale at Target and I've had it for months and months...
    mostly coarse texture, normal porosity... I think?

    This is very true. I was using the moisture maniac as a co-wash when my hair was overconditioned several months ago. I'd recommend alternating it once every few days with a conditioner that contains some protein. Or if your hair is very dry and/or wiry, you might welcome the possibility of overconditioning! :afro:

    ingredients look good. I wonder how this compares to those little conditioner things you get in the coloring kits?
    I'm looking for a good condish. Right now I'm sitting here with the best curls ever. I just colored my hair and used the little conditioner thing that came in the box.
    All the other conditioners I have (and I have ALOT) are just not working. They either weigh my hair down and make it look greasy or they dry my hair out like coconut ones. ugh!

    This is a really good point ladies. It's so damn good at what it does that I do have to alternate with other conditioners periodically.

    I have often wondered how the little conditioners in some hair colors work so well in comparison to other conditioners, too. I was a huge hair colorer when my hair was relaxed. I'm awaiting more hair growth before I jump into the world of color. TIGI and HSR is like the most moisturizing conditioners I've ever tried without anything bad in the ingredients. Ultra moisturizing without cones, witch hazel, or a huge amount of proteins. You should definitely give each one a try to compare.

    Cool - I'm excited now. I'm going to pick up some tigi moisture maniac and then get some of the coloring DT stuff - that stuff rocks. I have enough in my little tube - my hair doesn't need much. drugstore.com sells it by the tube for just over 4.00 IF I can't find it locally :) And I'll use that stuff once a week.

    I just tried it for the first time the other day and I must say that it is a moisture MANIAC! It worked better than I thought it would. I was very pleased because my hair has been very dry lately. And it added so much moisture to my hair and I did not have to add anything to it. This is going to be one of my favorites. And I am glad that it is NOT jam packed with proteins. I mean proteins are good, but come on does EVERYTHING have to have them?

    Anyway, my hair is still so soft today! It is one of the best conditioners that I have used, except for like the other ladies have commented on that little packet that comes with dye kit. Man that is some good stuff. It would have to be loaded with cones to work that good!!

    HN, it really took me by surprise that it would work as well as it did. You know some things get hyped, but you try it and it just doesn't deliver? Well this one actually pulled through for me. It seems multi-purpose like others have said. I am going to be using this to cowash with this winter and will putting away the cheapies. It has slip so it detangles well too. So, it is an all in one. And I hear it works great as a leave-in and DT. I like my SheaM for my leave-in, but I won't mind giving this a try when I need something a little lighter than SheaM.

    Let me know how it works for you, if you get it.

    I'll be trying mine (I bought some yesterday) this morning. Can't wait to give it a go. The cheapies just haven't worked for me. They leave me either limp or limp and greasy or dry. I have a whole bathroom full of the stuff! I'll keep some around for DH and the rest, I don't know. I can't stand throwing anything away. Maybe I'll donate them to a shelter or something. They aren't worth swapping - because you can just get them at the grocery store or health food store.

    Ditto! I actually ordered a lot of 2 bottles off of eBay last night. With shipping, it comes out cheaper than buying the same amount at the grocery store (my local Kroger's sells the 8.5 oz bottle for $11.99!!!). I can't wait to try it! I'm thinking I'll try it as a DT or rinse out. I'd probably use too much of it for a cowash.

    That is a very good idea. I never throw anything like that away. Someone can always use good hair products.

    Yeah, it costs about the same here locally for a small 8oz bottle. So, I got mine off amazon.com for $13.53 for 25.6 oz and free S/H. So, that is another place to consider. That was way cheaper than my local store and no tax either.
