Rated 5 out of 5 by CurlyandDry Dear Kiehl's, please don't listen to the negative reviews
I absolutely love, love, love (did I say love?) this conditioner. I have thick, curly hair that gets very frizzy, no matter the weather. I've tried every of the top-of-the-line product for curly, dry hair over the years. And for many years I've been using Deva Curl One Conditioner consistently, because it's been the best for my hair. But this condition does tame the frizz and makes my hair soft and in control--and is a contender to push the One Conditioner to the back shelf for a while. I will say the scent is strong; but I have grown to like it.
This is a quality product for curly hair. In the curly hair world, my hair is rated 3B (kinky, curly, dry, thick). This condition is one of the very few that really works for me.
Kiehls: Please don't stop making this. You've hit on something here. Not many products work for really curly hair. This one does. Thank you for making it!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wally Smells like cigarettes and hairspray combined.
I'm a new Kiehl's fan and am very pleased with most of it's products, except for the Smoothing Oil-Infused Conditioner. The product seems to be working with my dry, frizzy hair and I can tell an improvement. HOWEVER, the smell is so horrendous & nauseating. It reminds me of the bathroom of an old house trailer, mixed with the smell of your Aunt Flo's Aquanet hairspray and Camel cigarettes. I tried combining this conditioner (half & half) with the pleasant scents of Amino Acid & Olive Oil Conditioners, and the smell is just as awful. The smell stays in your hair for several days, even after many rinses. Please replace this formula with a pleasing scent. The only reason I'm reviewing this item, is because I was curious to see other consumers reaction to this awful scent. I did not receive a free sample of this product and bought a large bottle, which I'll discard. I'm assuming no refunds are available.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Huckleberry Don't make the Argan Conditioner anymore, so tried this
K doesn't make the Argan conditioner anymore, so I went to a store and they directed me to this. My wife's hair guy said argan could cause buildup, and that's why it was going out of favor. Anyway, I just don't want my hair to be frazzled. This stuff, from my experience, does not smooth the hair at all. It's quite possible it does the reverse. Feels like just eh conditioner. For that, I think I'd rather go to the drug store.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CSNY Bring the former Argon
The product works well. Sadly, the scent is awful. It smells like a cheap hotel conditioner, but stronger. The former argon conditioner worked well and the scent, while not the best, was at least natural smelling. One of the things I like about the Kiehls products is the naturalness. This scent is so far from that and hard to tolerate. I will have to find a new conditioner.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Curlyguy Horrible fragrance
Tried this after years of using the Argan conditioner. I don't have an opinion on how it holds my curly hair together yet, but it smells OVERPOWERING and HORRIBLE. My girlfriend noticed it the moment I stepped out of the shower. It's putrid. Like a cheap potpourri fragrance basket from a midwestern craft shop meets a Vegas strip club. It's something I literally cannot use in my hair and go in to work. Absolutely returning this and finding a new product to use.
Rated 3 out of 5 by PNWerin Great conditioner, perfume way too heavy
I really like this conditioner and the way it leaves my fine, wavy hair soft and manageable. I let my hair air dry yesterday afternoon to see the full effect and I had gorgeous, soft waves that stayed in place, but also let me run my fingers through without losing texture. Yes! Even this morning when I woke up, my bedhead was looking really good. The main problem: the perfume and scent on this conditioner is SO heavy. I can smell it all around my face. Even when I put my hair up in a ponytail as I have it right now, the next day, I can still smell this perfume. I would honestly recommend this product to anyone with fine, wavy hair (who has a lot of hair), so long as they can put up with strong scents. Kiehls, is there any way to make a reduced scent version? Or one with little to no scent at all?
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sunshinesmile Horrible conditioner......
I bought the shampoo and conditioner. I have curly, color treated fine hair. I tried the product 3 times. My hair kept getting worse. I used it this morning and let my hair dry naturally. It dried crusty and I couldn't even get a comb or brush through it. Worse shampoo and conditioner ever!! My hair is flat greasy and I need to wash it and I just washed it....I like Keihl's products but these are horrible. Wish I had read the reveiws before I bought it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by mjoyjoseph Very very sad :'(
I tried to be optimistic about this as a replacement for the Argan line, especially since I was not a fan of the smell of the old line. Unfortunately, I would gladly put up with the smell to not have frizz. This re-do does not work for me what-so-ever; I couldn't possibly have any frizz even if I went without any product.
