Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 37 Customer Reviews)
Paraben Free and Gluten Free
Revitalize and recondition your hair with our creamy Conditioner Cosmetic Base. This moisturizing conditioner is silicone free, and restores moisture balance to dry, damaged hair leaving it feeling soft, silky and shiny. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential oils, fragrance oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a liter of our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time, this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth texture, and rate of absorption.

Rating: I just tried this conditioner and added fragrance Pink Sugar and extra castor as it is super thick. Very nice, hydrating and great for dry hair. I will try other EO & fragrances and carrier oils mixed in.

Rating: thiis conditioner was ok. I can't say it was any better than any other conditioner but i never use conditioner on its own. i always add something to enhance it. With that said, it did what it was supposed to do.
By:Lorriane, Gardena, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jan-2010
Rating: Great conditioner, though could use a bit more of a detangling agent. My hair is at my waist, so it would probably detangle average length hair more easily. I mixed this base with Mango, Peach, and Vanilla FO, as well as bee's pollen, apricot kernal oil, and fruit complex. The smell is amazing & it leaves hair smooth and shiny without weighing it down at all.

Rating: I am curious if this conditioner is SLS free? I love it!
By:Anna, Leavenworth, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Mar-2007
Rating: Because my scalp is extremely sensitive and prone to itching and flaking, I had taken to using large bottles of TresEmme Naturals and mixing it with essential oils. And it was better than any of the commercial conditioners I had tried, but nowhere near as good as this: I've been using this (mixed with Lemongrass, Rosemary, Chamomile and Mint EOs) for a month and a half now, and no more visible flakes on my black shirts. Not one itchy fit either. Even my hair-separation-line (previously pink) has changed colors because my scalp is not constantly irritated anymore. Oh, and the hair looks good too. Love it! :)

Rating: I just washed my hair with this, and it is really lovely! could use a bit more of a detangler in it, but non the less... a great product! holds the FO REALLY well!
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love this conditioner! It is so easy to add essential oils and other additives to customize conditioners for my customers. However, my only (minor) complaint is that it does not accept color very well. It comes out looking mottled. Has anyone else had this problem? Otherwise, this is amazing!

Rating: This is a very nice cream rinse. I like how it feels and the end results. However, I can't seem to overpower the underlying scent of this product. I use a Rosemary and Lemon Essential Oil Combination (the same as in the shampoo - and the scent is wonderful!!), and no matter what I use, the only thing I can smell is a fragrance that reminds me of Tame Creme Rinse from the 60's and 70's. So, that is somewhat of a turnoff for me.
Rating: This conditioner is incredible! My hair is extremely damaged from to much coloring. This conditioner, a bit of my favorite butters and some Myrrh resinoid leaves my hair feeling silky soft, manageable and shows no signs of damage. Best conditioner I've ever made / used! I HIGHLY recommend this product.
Rating: I love this product! I add eo's and fo's to customize it! For the first time EVER I have no frizz...and my hair is much easier to style with a flat iron!

Rating: Very impressed with this product. Mixed a bit of jojoba and orange oils together, then added it to 2 oz of the conditioner base. Tried it in my hair. The results were comparable to a well known retail brand that I HAD been using regularly. Moisturized and conditioned very well. Not bad ND. I'm looking forward to trying a few other formulations with this base.
Rating: Terrific product. Leaves my hair shiny and silky.
By:Kevina, San Jose, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Nov-2009
Rating: I bought the shampoo and conditioner bases as my hair is very dry and damaged I added almond oil, coconut oil and rosemary to both and now I wouldn't go back to the grocery store. My hair is soft, silky and much easier to manage....I'm looking forword to buying more and trying different combinations
By:Jacki, Beeton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This conditioner is working extremely well. I want to know if this can be used as a leave in conditioner as well. I am so tempted to smooth some of this on my hair and not rinse it out because it feels so good on my head. Thanks for such a wonderful product!
Rating: Great conditioner. I create all kinds of scents and add silk peptide for added softness.
By:Brenda, Havana, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-May-2009
Rating: wonderful product, I use it together with the SLS free shampoo and I love it!
By:Sabine, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Tried the conditioner with the SLS free shampoo for the first time this morning. Loved them both. I have fine hair and it's hard to find a conditioner that works without making my hair look greasy and limp. This does the trick nicely. Great product!

Rating: I LOVE this conditioner! I have used other "natural" conditioners and they were all okay. This one is amazing!!!!! I use it on my 4 yr old's hair that reaches to her bum and every time it leaves her hair shiny and managable. It also works great on my shoulder length fine hair, doesn't weight it down or leave it greasy. FANTASTIC!!
By:Kelly, Carmangay, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a must for any type of hair. I love it, my friends love it. It is great for dry, thick, oily, thin hair. You can add a lot to this base and still have a superb stable conditioner. Or, this is the best part, use it as is for fabulous results!! I highly recommend. No oily, weighed down hair, no frizzy, dry hair. It's a must for anyone needing a conditioner.
Rating: I just tried the conditioner this week, and wow. My hair is thin-lot\'s of it but it gets oily by the end of the day. Using this product, and adding a drop of lavender and a drop of gerainum my hair was beautiful all day. It held shape and did not feel or get oily by the evening.
New Directions has the best products.
Rating: I love this conditioner. Mixes with Patchouli and Clary Sage very well. Excellent quality.
By:Glenyce, Vermilion, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wow! What a fantastic conditioner, even for naturally curly hair! It is a very good quality, and a great price for being mostly "natural".
By:Karine, Kemptville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wow, this conditioner is the best I have ever seen. Rivals all the spendy brands easy, and I get to scent it myself. What could be better? My hair smells like roses and lavender. I keep making my husband come smell it. And it's so soft. I will be back for more and soon!
Rating: I just LOVE this conditoner. I tried the Ultra Premium Base and did not like that base at all. I made some of the prem for my sister and she called me and asked me if I am sure I didnt accidently give her lotion : (. She did not like it either. This condtioner though ROCKS!!!
By:Nikki, Columbus, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Apr-2008
Rating: This conditioner is very light. My hair tangles pretty easily and this just isn't cutting it. I can see where someone who doesn't need detangling would like this conditioner. It doesn't weigh your hair down and takes the oils well. I think I'll try the Ultra Premium conditioner next time and maybe won't have this problem. But for the price? Can't beat it!
By:Gretchen, Phoenix, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2008
Rating: LOVE this product makes your hair so soft and shiney. My customers love it I cant keep it in stock. GREAT JOB NDA!!!!!!
Rating: I just received this conditioner today and couldn't wait to try it out!!! My hair is so soft & shiny. I usually have hair that tangles alot but not with this conditioner !!! Awesome product!! I will definately add it to my line of hair care !!
Rating: I just received the SLS conditioner and will certainly be adding this product to my line of hair care products. Having wonderfully super coily/curly, natural Afro-hair that is also called (there I say) "nappy" by some, finding a conditioner that will offer superb detangling attributes without leaving hair feeling stripped is a huge dilemm! Well this one met the challenge! I have several clients and friends who have similar hair types as well as those with relaxed and color-treated hair who I think this would be great for!
Rating: I would recommand this to anyone, it works very well for making all sorts of conditioners. I made some for dry scalp and for kids and what not and i have got all remarks from this product keep up the great work. Will be buying again
Rating: Very mild contidioner that doesn't irritate the scalp. Leaves the hair soft and easy to comb without parabens, sls or silicons, so its a major PLUS. Easy to use and add other ingredients.
By:Nelly, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent product. Works well in all types of hair. All the Products with New Directions are "Top Of The Line"
I would reccomend them all. I have been using these products for 2 years now and I have never had any complaints!
By:Cara, Whistler, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent product will buy it again. It is light weight and it detangles.

Rating: This is a great way to start making your own hair products. I love adding essential oils with the fragrant oils. It leaves your hair soft.

Rating: We have try many differnt types of conditioners. Your product is the best we ever used. We used AVEDA (Damage Remedy), Avalon Organics (Nourishing Conditioner), Bath and Body Works (Aromatherapy Orange Ginger Conditioner), and TRESemme' Conditioner... All of them does not maintain moisture for my hair. Your conditioner acutally can keep my hair shin and flow. We are very impressed.

Rating: This conditioner base is also raved about by my customers. The moment they receive it they contact me to tell me how wonderful it is and that they will definitely purchase more. I recommend everyone try it.....
