This conditioner pairs really well with the shampoo, but adds a lovely scent when used with other shampoos. This, like many store brands, I can't use on my scalp without it getting oily - however, it does make my hair insanely soft! Maybe it's because I use so much but it does seem to take a while to rinse out, though the end result is worth it imo. I'd definitely recommend this because I use it all the time. My hair is thick, and 85% of it is color treated but my roots are natural.
