This is my first Aubrey Organics product, and as the brand name implies, it is all natural, so there are no silicones to beef up the texture of the formula. It was described as quite rich, which is rather uncommon among natural hair care lines, and indeed, it is very thick and creamy. Unlike most silicone-based conditioners, it does not feel smooth and slippery until you wash it out, but rather the hair absorbs most of it within a few minutes, which I assume is a good thing. The scent is an incredibly strong floral, one I don't particularly like, but I stopped noticing it after a while. It moisturizes well, but it is still not enough for my parched hair, which has never found its grail conditioner. I generally reserve it for days when I've put on a hair mask, as I find that its nutritive ingredients and high absorption work especially well after a hair mask.
