Nature's Gate Herbal Conditioner - HG

I think I've finally said goodbye to frizz! I was in GNC picking up vitamins and glucosomine for my knees, and decided to pick up a bottle of this conditioner. I've read some very good reviews about this product in the Product Reviews forum. I used it as a COwash today, and my curls turned out stupendous! Volume, bounce, shine, definition... ahh, my curls are in heaven right now :D . I used the same amount of conditioner as I have been. I found this product has great slip on my hair. I COwashed, used a pea size amount as a leave in, applied BRHG, and plopped. I made sure I smoothed in the conditioner and gel after I showered on all-but dripping curls. Plopped for 30 mins, pixiecurl diffused, scrunched just a wee bit with my microfiber towel and went out the door. It was humid here this afternoon and I was outdoors with my kiddos @ work for 1 1/2 hours. My curls didn't frizz up at all, and still looked and felt so soft! I got compliments from my coworkers as well as 2 parents when they came to pick up their kids. It's now 9:30 and my curls still look fabulous! I also love the smell of the conditioner.

I know everyone has different HG's, but I had to put in my own 2cents for this product. My curls are wonderful! :D Just had to let you girls know.

    That's great that it lasted all day, and that you found something that you don't have to buy online! :D

    I really like your Day 13 pic.

    Thanks! I'm glad, too. I got the conditioner for only $4.50, so that's great. I'm planning on using this, and with the great results, hopefully that will keep me from becoming a PJ :lol:

    I'm not resisting very well. Was it the old formula or the new formula?

    did it look like this bottle? I think this is the new formulation.

    I think I am going to have to get this -- been eyeing it, the smell is OK (it reminds me of aveda sap moss), but it seems nice and thick -- I think it would be great as a co-wash...

    That's it. It's wonderful, in my opinion. Also looks easier to squeeze than the fat bottles I saw.

    Some people do find this one a bit drying, although I've never used it. The hemp and henna conditioners are also popular.

    I'm so glad you've found an HG!

    I believe the fat bottles are a different formulation. I think NG has recently updated their formulas and changed the look of the bottles. I agree: the fat bottles are not too ergonomic.

    I've used the jojoba and the Rose Geranium & Persimmon from the NG line and was pleased with them. I've been wantting to try the herbal one after hearing some good reviews. I just don't need any conditioners right now. I also want to try this Hemp Moisturizing Conditioner I've seen at Sally's and have plans to hunt for more AHC when I'm in San Antonio. I'm addicted!

    I used this condish this morning and got great results -- it really does the trick on frizz and gave me nice spirals. But, it felt weird on my hair -- almost sudsy/squeaky (It's the conditioner, cause I checked!) -- anybody else experience that?

    I bought this over the weekend.
    I used it this morning and I totally noticed it made my hair squeaky! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who found that.
    My hair doesn't feel dry, but not over conditioned either. And it gave me nice big clumps, which my hair apparently hasn't felt like doing lately. We'll see how it goes as I keep using it.

    I'm still getting stupendous results using the conditioner. I'm getting my camera back from my sister tomorrow so I'll be able to post some pictures of my curls now that I'm pretty sure I've found the right routine. :D I'm glad you guys are getting good results, too!
