I have baby fine hair, that is also damaged from years of dyeing. I recently had my hair colored at a salon with Aveda and am using this conditioner as part of my post-color routine. I like the all-natural quality of the Nature's Gate line and my stylist had recommended I use gentle products as we work to undo the damage.
I have to say I really liked this conditioner. It is a little runny, but just squeeze it out slowly and apply it a little at a time. For me, it worked best when I applied it all over my hair, left it in abput 3 minutes, then rinsed.
It kept the tangles out of my hair. Nice smell too!

This product is runny, smells bad, and completely ineffective. It smells like bubble gum flavored medicine, which totally threw me off at first. The product is runny and is difficult to keep in your hair. And it gave me horrible snarls after using it. I needed to load on leave-in conditioner just to comb my hair. My hair is not dry or excessively tangled. Generally I barely need to brush it but this product had a negative effect, it wasn't even neutral! I love nature's gate but not this product. I think I'll stick to their other products

    I don't really understand the negative reviews about the scent, I guess I don't even notice it.
    I can see and feel the difference if I skip using this conditioner, my hair feels tough and looks dull.
    The consistency is not runny at all. It may be a little thinner than conventional brands but not to the point where it's at all difficult to use.
    I also use this in place of shaving cream and there's been such a difference, as in I used to get so much skin irritation when using those foam creams and using this works so much better for me.

    MADE MY HAIR LIKE STRAW!

        Comments about Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Hair Defense Conditioner, 18 fl oz:

        I bought this conditioner, along with the shampoo, based on the customer reviews. I was in the mood to try something new. The first week I used it, I was happy with it. Not overly impressed, but thought it did make my hair soft. The smell is not pleasing at all, but I was able to ignore that.

        However, after using it for just over a week, my hair became like straw! I couldn't run my fingers through it, when dry, at all! I really panicked that I'd ruined my hair. I did a deep conditioner and quickly tossed out all of the Nature's Gate products I'd purchased.

        So, beware you may like it at first, but after a short time it will not be your favorite!

        Comments about Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Hair Defense Conditioner, 18 fl oz:

        I recently dyed my hair a dark auburn. Since my hair doesn't hold dye very well I wanted a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. I got this and the matching shampoo. I was pleasantly surprised. My hair is super soft. Usually when I dye my hair, in the week afterwards I lose more color everytime I shower. With this I haven't lost any dye. My only con is that this has a weird smell. The shampoo smells fruity and flowery, and this smells like that only fermented. Not in a rotten fruit sort of way, more like a fruity wine.

        Comments about Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Hair Defense Conditioner, 18 fl oz:

        I had been using this conditioner for a few weeks but it was absolutely not working for me, and so I started using lots more of it to go through it quicker when I realized that I was not using enough before and that's why it was ineffective.

        I have long (almost waist-length), fine, straight hair and end up needing to use quite a bit of it, but it works as well as any other non-natural conditioner I have used before, so I am quite happy with how this product works. The big downside is how much I need to use, but, for me, this is off set by what this conditioner doesn't have (parabens, animal products) and the fact that the conditioning does not build up as much as other conditioners I have used.

        I also enjoy the fragrance very much, but can see why it is too much for others--it is very sweet and fruity and quite overwhelming, and I can see myself getting rather sick of the scent if I were to use it for a long time. All in all, a very good conditioner if you use enough for your hair.

          Sorry, Nature's Gate. I really wanted to like this product and it was my first " all natural " conditioner try. It's not a winner. I feel like I'm ripping through my hair just to get it worked in. And it's SO THIN... it doesn't feel like it's moisturizing at all... and you have to use a TON of it. Meh. Won't buy it again... but it smells yummy

          I like this conditioner, it's basic and it works. Thank goodness, because I didn't realize when I ordered that the bottle holds 18 oz! It's a very good value. You can load up on conditioner if your hair is feeling really dry, but it's light enough that it can be used every day on my dry at the ends and oilier at the roots hair without making me look grungy. The smell is fruity with a slightly strange scent under it. I think it's the sunflower, I've smelled something similar in other hair care with sunflower; it's not bad, but be aware.

                I was very disappointed in this product. I thought that going with a product that had more natural ingredients would be nice, but this particular product was awful. Not only did it smell bad, like rotting/rancid fruit, but it did not condition my hair at all. It left it feeling like straw and nappy. I could have probably started to make dread locks if I used more of it. It did not soften or detangle my hair, either.
