Keracare Humecto Conditioner Review

March 30, 2009

Keracare Humecto Conditioner

Name: Keracare Humecto Creme Conditioner

Price: $11.55 (Price @ the Avlon company site… JCPenny salons always have good sale prices on it too!)

Product Promise: Helps correct and prevent moisture loss, due to exposure of chemicals. Helps prevent brittleness, breakage, and splitting. Detangles for easy combing.

The Review: This conditioner is the business! I used it with heat as a deep conditioner for 30 minutes. My hair was very soft and manageable. And let me tell you… the slip was to die for. It will definitely be added to my rotation.

I purchased the 8oz bottle which has the new formula that is consistent with the 5lb tub. And I’m back on my hair budget after the recent hair products haul, but I will definitely be purchasing a 5 pound tub of Humecto when I stock back up.

And as a quick note… it does contain mineral oil. Personally, my hair doesn’t have a problem or react funny with it, so that does not play into my decision to purchase.

Rating: 5 out of 5

It’s so funny, I came across your site today,looking for people like myself who are getting into a regular regime with their hair. Anyways I too bought the Humecto and nearly threw it out the window when I saw the dreaded MINERAL OIL….lol. When in the store I thought I went through the ingredients thoroughly,hah. But how are we supposed to know what works for our hair if we don’t try new things,right? Well I’m happy it work for you so I to will give it a try!

Honestly, if a product works for my hair, the fact that it contains mineral oil does not play into my decision. I think it’s all about educating ourselves. I’ve done my own research and concluded that mineral oil is not a “toss away” factor for me. Now that’s just me… someone else may decide different.

As long as you are educating yourself as a consumer, I feel that you should do whatever works for you. I’m still searching for natural products that work just as well as a few of my staples, but until then I will continue to use what works for my hair. Trust me, I’m not throwing anything out. It’s a recession girl, lol…

I agree with Dani. I think some people assume that “all natural” just automatically equals better. I have found that is not the case. I have searched high and low for an all natural shampoo that wouldn’t completely dry out my hair and leave it feeling like a brillo pad. I have tried quite a few and I’ve found they are VERY drying and my hair breaks easily when I use them. My conditioner has to sit FOREVER to undue the damage the shampoo has done. I have, and so long as I can find the original formula, likely always will be a Creme of Nature detangling conditioning shampoo girl. If natural doesn’t do anything for my hair and causes more damage, why bother? I just bought a 5 lb tub of the Humecto and hope it works well. The best conditioner I have found is the ORS replenishing pak.
