Rated 3 out of 5 by jandrewx Great product, unfortunate scent
I have wavy/frizzy hair and this product is definitely helping with that. I used to use the argan oil products and I really liked them, and these are clearly their replacement offering. (In fact, in a lot of ways, these products work even better than the argan line (especially in reducing frizz and making hair look collected and smooth). However, I'm not sure I can ever buy it again simply because of the scent. It's extremely strong and floral. It's really too bad that they went with something that's both so intense and so different from the discontinued line's smell.
So, they are great product if you like/tolerate the scent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jedboy1 Outstanding Conditioner for Dry, Curly Hair
My hair thrived on the argan oil product line and I was sorry to see it go. The oil-infused products have been excellent, giving me shiny soft hair with no frizz at all. I've received many compliments, including just today from some ladies at my polling place. My hair starts off dry from being curly and old, with some gray if I didn't color it (which I do) with highlights. You can see it has major natural and chemical dryness that the oil infused products handle very well. Other reviewers think the fragrance is bad, but I think it is an unusual floral scent that does not last long. I hope Kiehl's never replaces this product!
Rated 2 out of 5 by ACJ3 Not loving it
One of my favorite Kiehl's products ever was the argon oil conditioner. I tried this as a replacement when that one was discontinued and it is not a good replacement. My main dislike is the overly strong floral fragrance. It probably works the same but I can't seem to get over the new smell. I purchased a tube of this product not just the complementary sample.
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.
