Matrix Biolage Hydra Therapy Conditioning Balm. I swear, I almost wish I'd never tried it at my mom's house, because I just HAD to go out and buy some. And at $17 for 8 ounces, it's ridiculously expensive. But nothing has ever made my hair feel THIS good! (I used to buy some stuff at Bath and Body Works that was almost this good, but even that was $13, and they no longer sell it.)

So, have any of you tried this conditioner? Have you found anything less pricey to replace it? Man, it's great, but it's budget killer.

Ohhh I haven't tried that. How come it's so good? What type of hair do you have?

I always have a problem with frizz and very thick hair.

I have very thick hair, with a lot of natural curl, which sometimes turns a little frizzy. This stuff makes my hair feel so incredibly smooth...I just love it.

Anyone with any other conditioner suggestions??

I feel Biolage is one of the best products on the market. Curly, frizzy? Try the Biolage smoothing system. It's wonderful in the summer to be able to go out in the humidity and my hair doesn't turn into a frizzy mess.

I love Aubrey Organics. Whole Foods sells their own line of products, and their 365 conditioner is pretty nice too. I use a small amount of the unscented version as a leave-in and it works great without weighing my hair down. About 1/2 tsp or so.

They don't have -cones in their product which is good for me because I hate coney buildup.

I too have very thick hair and natural curl, and with the constant thunderstorms we've been having, it will frizz up.
Curl is fine, but the frizz can be tiresome.
I use Scruples' Quickseal.
Until I found Quickseal, I never much cared for conditioners because it always seemed like I could not rinse the stuff out. Quickseal leaves no residue, it just makes my hair smooth and healthy.

Bumping this up...

I use this stuff and absolutely love it. Smells great too.

If you want to save money, you should check a beauty supply store for the larger size that comes in a big jar. Off hand, I don't know how many oz are in the jar, but it is much bigger than the 8.5 oz tube and I paid $21. Good buy!

Yes, I use it, but, only once a week. Through the week, I use Aussie and Herbal Essence products. I usually buy a shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle. I hate having to do it separately. If I don't do that, I use Aussie leave in conditioner/mousse. Talk about killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
