What’s in it: Marsh mallow leaf extract, larch extract, jojoba seed oil, burdock extract, nettle leaf extract, leem leaf extract, macadamia nut oil, rosemary extract, and apple cider vinegar.
What’s not in it: Petroleum, sulfates, detergents, chemical additives, SLS/SLES, parabens, or synthetic preservatives. No animal-testing, either.
What it feels like: Nothing too crazy here. It feels like basically every conditioner on the market while you’re rubbing it on your locks. But after the shower ends and your hair dries, be prepared for some major softness.
What it smells like: You might be afraid that it’ll make your hair smell like a package of marshmallow Peeps, but don’t worry. It smells the way your mom’s perfume smelled when you were a kid: fancy, slightly musky, and totally forbidden. Add a slight herbal tea scent, and you’ve got this conditioner.
What it costs: $22.95 for eight ounces. But a little goes a long way, so don’t fret the bottle size, which looks smaller than the conditioner we’re used to.
Where it’s made: Germany
What we think: I won’t lie: I was so excited to try this conditioner, I took a superfluous shower the evening I brought it home (sorry, Earth). As soon as I squeezed it out into my sweaty palm, its scent filled my shower. As a rule, none of us at Blisstree are into products with synthetic fragrances (aside from giving us headaches, we’re also wary of the toxic chemicals that make them smell that way). But Dr. Hauschka’s scents are all natural, so I practically hyperventilated to get my fill of the scent. Post scent-gasm, the conditioner left my hair way softer than normal — though not very shiny. It did manage to tackle my biggest hair woe, however: Fly-aways. The little wisps of hair that normally decorate my crown vanished without a trace after using this conditioner. How Dr. Hauschka managed to do that without an arsenal of chemicals, I’m not sure, but I do know that I’ll keep coming back for more.
