Additional Information

Why is it different?
SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner is one of the few truly fragrance-free conditioners, which makes it a perfect choice for those with sensitive skin or those who are sensitive to fragrance in general. This one-of-a-kind, concentrated conditioner works as a daily moisturizing and detangling conditioner. For all hair types, it leaves hair looking soft, shiny, and manageable. The silky texture makes it easy to apply and distribute through wet hair and it rinses easily so hair never feels limp or greasy.

What does it do?
Brilliant for any hair type, but is especially helpful for those sensitive to fragrance. Works as a daily moisturizing, smoothing, and detangling conditioner that leaves even highly textured, coarse, color-treated hair looking soft, shiny, and easy to manage. The silky texture distributes evenly through wet hair, and then rinses easily so hair never feels limp or greasy.

How to use

After shampooing, apply conditioner, focusing on the dry parts of your scalp and hair. Leave on for 1-2 minutes, then rinse well. For dry, coarse hair that needs deeper conditioning, leave on hair for as long as possible. May be used as a leave-in conditioner.

Love the product, hate the bottle

Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner:

This is one of the best conditioners I've found. But, given that it is very thick, why do they have a container that will not stand upside down?

    This is a great conditioner and it doesn't weigh hair down. Like the other comments, the bottle is awkward. I'm surprised by now that PC hasn't repackaged this product.

    Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner:

    This conditioner (and it's matching shampoo) are extremely effective for my dry, color treated hair. I order a new bottle of each product well before running out so that I am never without them. This conditioner is very thick and emollient. It glides through my hair in the shower to easily detangle and condition. It rinses out easily without any kind of unpleasant residue. After drying, my hair is soft, shiny, and much smoother. The texture is enhanced, just much less frizzy compared to when I use other conditioners. It's a must have beauty product for me.

      Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner:

      I love to use this after I color my hair. Leaves hair soft & tangle free. It's the only conditioner that totally gets rid of every tangle! I have baby fine color treated hair. Use sparingly & make sure to rinse out if u have hair like mine. It really conditions without being too heavy.

        Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner:

        For my dry, fine, curly hair this is a god-send. It does a fabulous job without weighing down my hair one bit. I keep trying other shampoos and conditioners and they are good, but Paula's are better and less expensive. My hair looks its best when I just shampoo and condition with these, then let it air dry naturally with no other products at all. My curls aren't weighed down and can bounce softly. No other shampoo and conditioner leave my hair quite that nice.

              Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner - 14.5 oz:

              I have coarse but straight hair that is generally resistant to getting oily for at least 5 days (PSA: daily shampooing is not necessarily for healthy hair!!). I have to agree with previous reviewers that this conditioner feels heavy on the hair after use. Also as previously mentioned (but now the review has been deleted?), it goes a little too overboard with the silicone. Of course when you initially wash and condition your hair, it feels super smooth and flowy, but I find the conditioner effects start to weigh my hair done and makes it much more prone to greasiness than other conditioners I use. I've tested this back and forth with other conditioners and I prefer the less-silicone heavy ones, but I can see how this PC conditioner would benefit someone with very fizzy or unruly hair, and are daily shampooers. Also, please fix the packaging! The cap is very flimsy. Given the thick consistency of the product, PC should really design a bottle that sits upside down on its *stable* lid.

                  I live in the high desert and this product I use (small amount) as a leave in conditioner for my thick, curly hair. This is the best product I have used and I have used several high end - kerastase, purology and other samples. None work as good as this product and it really does only take a small amount. Always have this product Paula!

                    This is such a good product for my hair type. It made my hair really shiny and gave my curls beautiful shape. I only wish my hair wasn't so long so it would have lasted longer. Towards the end of the bottle, I was just using it as a leave-in conditioner to make it last longer.

                      Comments about SMOOTH FINISH Conditioner - 14.5 oz:

                      This conditioner makes a very noticeable difference for my fine, straight, now-partially-gray hair. It's an easy 5 stars for being an effective, straightforward kind of product without any downsides, at least for my hair and skin type.

                      At 34 I have natural Mr. Fantastic white sideburns and a lot of the same coarser, graying hair mixed in with and hiding under the dark blond, and I've been trying to be good about using a conditioner to help the gray hair blend better with the rest, but I tend to skip the step because A) almost every drugstore conditioner is heavily fragranced and B) I honestly couldn't tell the difference 5 minutes after showering.

                      This product somehow makes my hair much softer and fluffier. I actually look forward to this step and my nose and scalp are grateful for the lack of fragrance.
