    Properties: 3B-4A mix, medium to low porosity, high density, fine, medium length

    Curl Junkie Smoothing Conditioner is a godsend. As a conditioner, it softens my hair, it makes it feel like seaweed, I can run my fingers through it with easy, I can detangle in half my usual time, kills frizz, defines my hair, adds shine, and makes my curls look perfect! This product has a pink sugar smell. It has slip, so much slip. SO MUCH SLIP. I cannot emphasize this enough. It is incredibly moisturizing! It’s what you want from a product aimed a curly hair. I definitely recommend this product, buy it on sale or purchase a sample of it! Worth it!

    Great smell and really moisturizing for my hair. I usually try to wash my hair every other day but w/ this product and some other products I have been using. I was able to go two days w/out washing. Before the curl mart products, all my curls would be gone the next day. Not anymore! I have 2a hair.

    Just got this Conditioner in today and I love it! It smells super refreshing and has great slip. Doesn't over coat your hair with heavy wax like texture, it's incredibly light weight. Leaves my hair so smooth and frizz free!

    My hair has been a mess to untangle! This conditioner is perfect for these winter months. My hair is much softer and full of a balanced moisture! While I'm in the shower I use a wide tooth comb to get the knots out and it so much easier to get a handle on with this product. Definitely recommend.

    Wow, if a good de-tangle conditioner is what your looking for, this is it! It is a good co-wash conditioner. It made my hair buttery soft with its good slip. However, I wish it was good as a combing conditioner; if I try to leave a little in my hair looked dry and frizzy. It can only be used as intended. Wash and rinse well, and that's fine. I gave it four stars because of the price, but I will say a little goes a long way. It smells really good too. I guest it don't hurt to treat yourself sometimes:)

    I was so disappointed in this conditioner. It sat on my hair and left it in a tangled mess. This has absolutely no slip at all.

    I really like this conditioner. It's pretty moisturizing and a GREAT detangler. I still need some extra moisture with this but so far it's been working really well for an often used conditioner. It feels very clean, not too heavy.

    I think I like this smoothing lotion! It helps detangle my coils and keeps my hair moisturized. Its a keeper!

    A great moisturizer for Spring / Fall. Because my hair can't take glycerin I switch to the Argan conditioner during the summer / winter. It moisturizes well but doesn't weigh down my fine hair. If your hair is parched / coily then you might need something more moisturizing than this.

    Posted by csnichol (Type 3c) on 11/21/2013

    I actually didn't like this conditioner very much. It did not help me detangle my hair and washed away really quick so it didn't keep my hair very moisturized. I won't buy again.

    4a / 4b hair. I've been natural for 5+ years. I liked this leave-in! The smell is great, you don't have to use that much, and it served as a semi-detangler for me. If you do over-use, you can tell at the end of the day.

    Posted by dhutchins (Type Unkown) on 09/17/2013

    I have type 4a/b hair. If I was a shampoo user I don't think I would really enjoy this conditioner. But, I dislike shampoo and this is an EXCELLENT alternative. You hair feels "squeaky" after use. I use this in lieu of the cleansing conditioner and I love it. The leave in is enough so I don't even use another RO conditioner after this one. But, I will say if I didn't pair it with the lotion and it didn't cut down on my wash day products I don't think I would repurchase. But, since I use this as shampoo and then use the smoothing lotion as a leave in afterwards it works excellent. This is my holy grail cleansing conditioner. I am a product junkie, but I don't like to use many products on my hair at once as it is naturally fine.

    Definitely worth a try if you are trying to take shampoo out of your regimen. Minus one because of the price. A little does go an uber-long way but still.

    Posted by Mliesa (Type 3a) on 09/04/2013

    I have 3a with some 3b hair underneath, I color (lighten) my hair so it's needs a lot of moisture. CJ smooting conditioner does the job and is an okay conditioner with reasonable detangling for my hair. But there are better conditioners out there for my hair so will not buy this again. I prefer the aragan&olive oil from CJ or the Curls sublime conditioner.

    This conditioner works. It has great slip, however, if you've used Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, you can get the same effect for a lot less.

    Posted by chloe92us (Type 2c) on 07/11/2013

    Love this RO condish- it smells like apple pie to me and leaves my hair soft. I rotate this with other conditioners, but I seem to reach for this one more often. After rinsing, my hair feels like silk!

    Posted by gizelle (Type 3c) on 07/05/2013

    This conditioner left my hair soft, detangled and sleek. I use it alongside the smoothing lotion for a winning combination. On the moisture end, it delivers for me. If you have used Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, the moisture factor is identical. My hair crawls, so smoothness eludes me most times, this conditioner helps with that.

    Posted by luvmusic195 (Type 3b) on 07/03/2013

    This was an okay conditioner. The smell is AMAZING. However, I don't find this to be very moisturizing. It left my hair feeling kind of dry and crunchy instead of soft. I like Beauticurls better for moisturizing. The slip was good; it just left my hair feeling strange.

    Posted by jcostantino (Type 2c) on 06/22/2013

    I LOVE this conditioner! I use it as a rinse out conditioner after co-washing my hair. It provides great slip for combing through hair and smells wonderful! It does what it says and makes my hair super smooth. I will definitely be re-purchasing this product but I want to try some of the other curl junkie conditioners first to compare them. I would definitely recommend this to other curly girls who are looking for a moisturizing rinse out conditioner.

    Hair Type: 4 b/c

    I ordered a sample of this product - within the styling/conditioning sample set - from the Curl Junkie website last Fall, and I'm JUST NOW using it! haha! Man has my hair been missing out on the moisture from this conditioner. I didn't really pick up on any peach, mango, or tropical fragrance from this product too much. Still smells nice, but it smells like oatmeal for some reason, lol. It could just be the small sample batch I got.

    I rinsed a decent-sized section of my hair underneath warm water for a few minutes, then applied this conditioner to damp (not wet/drenched) hair. As SOON as this conditioner hit my hair, INSTANT moisture & softness happened. I had only used half of the sample packet and that was all I really needed for that section! So little bit goes a very long way. I imagine a 12oz bottle will last me about 6 mos - 1 yr. While applying the conditioner, I did notice some slip & my hair was a bit easier to detangle. However after rinsing out the conditioner I REALLY noticed how detangled my hair was and omg this is my new staple co-washing product. I've recently colored my hair and I don't want to use shampoos just yet for concern of my color rinsing out so soon, so this CJ Smoothing Conditioner is going to be my staple rinse-out/co-wash product from now on! I see now why people rave about this product & product brand :)

    One of my absolute favorites. I keep buying this one again and again. I am a fan of all Curl Junkie products, but this is my top one. The tropical fragrance of this is fantastic, it lingers a little but isn't overpowering. This manages to be rich and very moisturizing but without weighing down my fine hair. I notice better clumping and less frizz when I use this conditioner.

    Posted by rizadaNYC (Type Unkown) on 02/23/2013

    Smells delicious. Used as a regular conditioner. I found putting a layer on and then letting the shower spray my hair a little helped to increase slip for detangling. It does create a lot of curl. However, I did not find this moisturizing and it left my hair frizzy. I had much better results with the smoothing leave-in product.

    Posted by rida (Type Unkown) on 02/04/2013

    The first couple of times I used this I really didnt like it. It gave me no slip and zero detangling. then one day deciding what conditioner to use I said to myself that it works for everyone else whats going on. Then I thought about it, maybe it needed to be shakin up really well. BINGO! It worked like a dream after that. Smooth and silky and super detangling. I cant believe I didnt think of it sooner. I'm thinking about trying it a as a leave in. It feels really good in the hair while conditioning with no white residue.

    First time using this product and CJ . I like this product a lot mostly because the ingredients are great. It does have a lot of slip but not extremly moisturizing nut more then KKKT. I would probably buy again because of its ingredients. I feel CJ is one of the best lines and not just for curly hair its great stuff and you know exactly what you are putting in your hair.

    Posted by mzmiller (Type Unkown) on 09/07/2012

    My hair is low porosity, type 4a and I was having a really difficult time finding a product that would give lasting moisture, and curl definition. When I found the Curl Junkie product line, my search was over! I love the Smoothing Conditioner. I use it on my dry hair daily, and braid or twist it at night for braid/out or twist/out styles the next day and it always turns out great. I will no longer be a product junkie. I'm now a Curl Junkie junkie - lol.

    I love the smell of this! After using this with my sulfate free shampoo my curls were more defined and so soft. In addition, my hair smells divine. I would definitely recommend this as a daily conditioner. Usually washing my hair twice a week, occasionally 3 times depending on how hot it is after all it is July in Jersey and it's pretty gross out. I leave some in my hair and it works wonderfully. My hair is nice and moisturized. I have no problem spending the money for my hair to keep it healthy and smelling great.

    Posted by themedievalist (Type 2c) on 06/16/2012

    I've generally had great experiences with Curl Junkie products, and this is no exception. This is a really nice conditioner, which is just a bit more moisturizing than my normal daily conditioner (DevaCurl One Condition), so I'll use it if my hair is feeling a bit dry but I don't feel like using a deep conditioner. I also like it after the Curl Fix protein treatment. This is definitely something I'll be keeping around!

    Posted by NaturesHairGift (Type 4a) on 04/20/2012

    AWESOME SLIP, MOISTURE, AND SMELL! It has great slip so it's very easy to detangle with. After you rinse it out it leaves your hair uber soft! I've used it after Daily Fix twice and my hair was very soft. Like butta! ^.~
    I usually don't experience this with a rinse out. It's a nice scent! It smells fruity or flowery.
    Although it's 18 dollars, this product is totally worth it (it's also easy to get it on sale from Curl Mart for about $16). I usually use Trader Joe's Nourish Condish to detangle but since this has no parabens I'm think about using this when I go away to grad school (there's no Trader Joe's in upstate NY). There's also not much glycerin so you can probably get away using it in the winter months. Great product, and by far it's my fav CJ rinse out condish!

    This is a good solid conditioner that is very moisturizing and smells soooo good. It can be used as a leave in or rinse out but I prefer it as a leave in. My only qualm is that it does not provide enough slip to detangle my hair but I still really enjoy it.

    Posted by Med_WavyFine (Type 2b) on 03/22/2012

    Excellent moisturizer, removed all the frizz and defined my curls really well, but unfortunately it weighted down my very fine hair. The next day, my hair was already greasy, so I do not think I will use it anymore except maybe as a deep conditioner

    This condish turned my hair into like some sort of silk/cream. I mean, the denman just glided through. A feat only some can accomplish. I won't list them, b/c I want to say "LET"S HEAR IT FOR THE Curl Assurance Smoothing Conditioner"! I will be the cheerleader.

    Great conditioner, helps detangle well, the only downside is the size. It needs to come in a larger size, since curly-haired people tend to use conditioner often, it's silly not to have a larger size option. @curly206

    My hair hated this. Left me feeling greasy, like it was sitting on the hair shaft and not penetrating it at all. Didn't help control frizz; it made my hair MORE frizz, less defined, more flyaway. My hair couldn't clump at all. The worst conditioner/LI I have ever wasted money on, I couldn't be more disappointed.

    Posted by FairlyCurly (Type 3a) on 02/14/2011

    I have very fine, low porosity curls and I did not like this conditioner at all. I made my hair very flat, limp and dry. It doesn't have very good slip either. I think it's too heavy for my hair properties and might be better suited for someone with thick and porous hair.

    Hands down the best conditioner I've ever used. I used this conditioner after cowashing with the Curl Junkie Daily Fix cleansing conditioner and I could feel my curls getting a heave dose of moisture. My hair was so soft and the amount of slip this product offers is excellent. It smells wonderful and a little bit went a long way. All I do is touch my curls after I use this product. Definately will be buying this product in the future because it is a permanent staple in my regimen.

    Bought a sample of this from Kathy Mack and I just placed an order for the full size at Avenue You. I really like this for my 2b hair. It really does smooth- so well that when I do a straight blow out, there was hardly any frizz. That is next to impossible for me. When I wore my hair curly after using this then KCCC, my curls were smooth and well formed. Highly recommend!

    I love this conditioner. It detangles, pumps up the moisture, and smells great. You also don't need very much at all for it to work, which makes it worth the money. I also like it as a heavy-duty leave-in. I find the results for me are similar to that of AOHR (but with added detangling).

    So far, this is my favourite CJ conditioner. It smells wonderful - very natural and mild smelling. It is a mild fruity fragrance. It has great slip and melted all my knots (even at the nape of my neck) easily. Highly recommend. Will definitely repurchase.
