REVIEW: Organic Excellence Wild Mint Conditioner

Goal: To find a truly natural Conditioner that gets the knots and tangles out with ease, makes it smooth and shiny without weighing it down and moisturizes like conventional Conditioner!
Brand I Tried: Organic Excellence.

It prevents split ends and hair loss, promotes growth, and calms frizz and static electricity. For manageability, deep conditioning, luxurious body, and a beautiful shine, nothing compares to Wild Mint Conditioner. Ideal for all hair types.

  • Price: $3.00 / $16.95
  • Size: 1 oz. sample bottle / 16 oz. full size bottle.
  • Uses: Conditioner.
  • Amount Of Product Used For It To Be Effective: I needed about 2 quarter size amounts of this to get the tangles out of my really long, thick hair.
  • First Impression: Smells like mild Peppermint Patties... Yummy!
  • Visual Attractiveness: I have a trial size, so I'm not sure what the full size bottles look like. I plan to order the full size soon though, so I will update when I do.
  • Texture: Thick and creamy... like conditioner.
  • Scent: like mild Peppermint Patties... YUM, I LOVE it!
  • How Long I've Used It: Twice. Now, I'm usually not one to do a review unless I've used something for a little while- but with shampoos & condtioners- I've pretty much known right off the bat if they were going to work for me or not. This is probably the one of THE BEST natural ones I've come across so far (and I know everyone has been asking me for hair product reviews, so I wanted to get one up). I will totally update if anything changes.
  • Easy To Find And Where?
  • Acquired: Sent to me by Natural Joy Beauty to review.
  • Customer Service: You know I love Natural Joy Beauty for several reasons- one, they do the work for you by choosing to sell only products that contain truly natural and organic ingredients. Two, because they offer sample sizes of every single product they sell (I think) so you don't need to make a huge commitment if you want to try something and can break up with it without breaking the bank! And three, because Joy is honest about the products she sells (if you tell her what you're looking for) and responds ASAP... they have the best customer service!  
  • Sample, Trial, Travel Sizes?: Yes... Available at Natural Joy Beauty!
  • EWG's Skin Deep - Cosmetic Safety Database Rating: 1! Awesome!!
  • Verdict: Ok, so let me start by saying that I am a reformed Pantene Conditioner (& shampoo, but more conditioner) Addict... like loyal- ever since I can remember washing my own hair! Now that's a looooong time! Whether it was a $100.00 bottle or $1.00 bottle of conditioner, I always went back to Pantene... like a crack-head, it was the only thing that ever got the tangles out (without killing me). I have really long, thick, curly/ frizzy dark, color treated hair that tangles VERY easily, especially by the nap of my neck. OUCH! So, conditioner is one thing that I really need to perform in that sense. I will admit that when I initially rinsed my hair from the shampoo for the first time, (See my Review of the matching Shampoo here)- I had a little bit of doubt about this. I'm always skeptical of new conditioners though. My hair was a little more 'squeaky' clean than I preferred... however, once I used the conditioner- my hair totally came back to life!  Although I do wish that this helped me get the tangles out a little bit better, it seemed to work miracles other than that, both times I've used it. Hurray! Also, OMG, you know that feeling you get when you're rinsing out the conditioner- that silkiness (that you pray isn't just excess conditioner you couldn't get out)? Well- it moisturizes your hair without weighing it down- and stays like that! WOW... just like a salon conditioner! I Love You Organic Excellence & Smooches to Natural Joy Beauty too for being such a life-saver! I've been having such a difficult time finding natural hair products that work for me...
UPDATE: 4.2.11- Still my FAVE natural Conditioner! xo
