My 6¢: SheScentit certainly has a way with scents. As with all the other SheScentit products I have tried so far, the scent of the SheScentit Banana Brulee Moisturizing Conditioner did not disappoint. It can rival any dessert tray! Despite the banana content, it doesn’t smell like bananas. It has a distinct fruity fragrance though, so if you’re not one for strong scents, this one might be a bit too much for you.
As far a price goes, $12.50 is not ridiculous assuming you are buying this in the US. Canadians can look to pay well over $20 for this product. 🙁
The conditioner is of a light consistency but not runny, however, be careful in the shower because a dollop of this stuff can easily slide off your hands. It does not weigh your hair down but despite it’s light consistency it is not a “quickie” conditioner. This is a true deep conditioner. By that I mean that there are other deep conditioners out there that I can get away with leaving on my hair for 5 mins…..not the Banana Brulee. I found that the longer this sat on my hair, the better my hair felt – definitely a conditioner to use when you have time to really let it saturate your strands. The directions recommend 15 mins to and hour. I erred toward the 1 hour mark and longer.
I would agree with the claims SheScentit Banana Brulee Moisturizing Conditioner softens your hair and leaves it “touchably soft”. For me however, that softness did not last much longer after the product was rinsed out. For that reason SheScentit Banana Brulee Moisturizing Conditioner was not the most moisturizing for me despite it making my hair feel incredibly soft. Maybe I needed a complimentary leave in that would help retain the moisture and maintain the softness but the SheScentit Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Leave-in wasn’t the magic combination. To be fair, I do not know if consistent use would yield better results as I only used this intermittently in my conditioner rotation. If your hair is not as coarse as mine, I think this would probably be a good addition to your product stack. Would I purchase again? For the smell hell yes….for the conditioning properties….hmmm, I think I would be willing to give other conditioners a try first.
