Product Review: Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner

Update: I purchased bottles of this conditioner at the start of November and found that my conditioners on (1/19/14) had mold. All my HH products were tossed.

Price: $13.00 for 8 oz bottle

Purchased At: Hairitagehydration.com

Promises: "This conditioner adds softness and moisture to hair and also helps repair hair and make it stronger."

Directions: After shampooing, add the amount of conditioner desired according to the thickness/length of your hair. Apply in sections from tip to root, detangling hair as you go. Leave in for 3-5 minutes, then rinse completely. May be used for deep conditioning.

Ingredients: Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Shea Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Mallow Extract.

Packaging: I'll save you my normal I-wish-it-came-in-a-jar rant lol. The only 'con' about the packaging of this conditioner is that the product label is paper and hasn't been holding up well against my wet palms.

Fragrance: It's very light and fruity and is one scent I wish lingered a little longer in my hair.

Consistency: This conditioner has a creamy, not-too-thick consistency.

Number of uses: I got 4 uses out of one bottle.

Effectiveness: I've been using this conditioner for month, twice a week. I loved this conditioner from the first time I tried it but as with all products, I'm always on the look out for the other shoe to drop. But that other shoe? No where in sight.

This conditioner has consistently given the same results: soft, smooth, moisturized, less tangled hair with each use. When applied to dry hair, this stuff sinks right into my hair and fluffs it right up. It's like my dry hair is just infused with tons of moisture on application. I've found that because it does absorb so well and so quickly into my hair, it's very easy for me to get heavy handed when applying to my hair.

One of the 'cons' of texlaxing I posted about in this post is that different textures respond differently to products, that still holds true with this conditioner. My new growth and texlax hair drink this stuff up, my bone straight ends? Not so much. My bone straight sections are still just as moisturized and softened as the rest of my hair after deep conditioning with this conditioner, but the whole 'sinking in' effect isn't as prominent.

This conditioner also provides a nice amount of slip and detangles my hair well, but again, new growth and texlaxed hair detangle more easily with this conditioner than my bone straight ends. It also rinses out well and doesn't cling to my hair and scalp.

Will I repurchase? Definitely. My hair is soft, smoothed (no raised cuticles around these parts), and adequately moisturized = a keeper to me.




Have you tried this conditioner? Like it? Love it? Left it?

    1. It looks like it might be out of stock. It's normally found under "Creative Conditioners" on the HH webpage.

  3. Hey Jen! I've noticed something: it seems like you use some products that have glycerin in them, even though the weather is cooling down, and the air is getting drier (at least here in Texas). I thought glycerin was a no-no in cooler, drier, weather, but from the types of products that you use, it seems like it's okay, as long as the product is not something you use daily, or, something that is rinsed out--or if glycerin is low in the ingredients list.

    Is this right?

    1. Hi there! You're correct, I do use certain products that contain glycerin during cooler months but never right before I go out. Off the top of my head I think this conditioner and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment are the only two products I use weekly that contain glycerin.

  6. Hi Jen. I've been curious for a while..When going through your older posts and wash days I noticed in the beginning of your hair journey all you used were KeraCare products but as time went on you added different products to your regimen. Why was the constant switch necessary and then you would find staples you also seemed to replace. I'm currently using the KeraCare Humecto Conditioner and it makes my hair soft after deep conditioning but how do I decide which products become a staple? I'm having some breakage issues but I can't find the cause which few protein treatments (protein sensitive) and weekly heat sessions. I've heard you say before its how the hair feels after the wash day is finished but I can't seem to tell between a "good" dc and a great one worthy of becoming a staple.

    1. Hi there, I switch products mainly because I love trying new products but I also think because it's necessary to find products that work well for me. I started off with KeraCare because that was all I knew; it's what my stylist used. I replace staples when I find something that works better.

      In deciding what becomes a staple, choose the product that works well for you on a consistent basis. For me, a staple worth conditioner is one that works consistently and leaves the hair soft and moisturized after it has been rinsed out, after hair is dry. Hope this helps!

  7. I am officially loving this conditioner. My hair comes out soft and moisturized after using it. My only issue is that it soaks into my hair so quickly that I feel like there is absolutely nothing in it. I've had conditioners soak into my hair pretty fast but this conditioner is on another level when it comes to that. lol It is a keeper for me.

    1. I have the same experience. I think I end up applying more than necessary it sinks in so well.

  10. How does this conditioner compare to Silk Dream Vanilla Silk Dream Moisture Cream Conditioner?

  11. Love, love, love this conditioner as a DC :)! Used it on a co-wash day and it helped with detangling, my hair felt so soft and moisturized. Even days later, not sure it was the DC or the moisturizer but I only had to moisturize every other day. Hope they don't discontinue :( it's listed on the website anymore.
