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.

Great weekly treatment

5

I've been using this weekly on my hair for over a year. The rest of the week, I use a lighter conditioner. This one makes my hair so smooth and keeps my hair looking healthier for longer between haircuts. It's so hard to find fragrance-free hair care that works, and this does the trick.

Great conditioner for my fine frizzy hair with dry ends!

Unlike many people, I don't like flagrance in my skin and hair care. It's not just the potential damage of flagrance, it's just that I like to just smell clean and add perfume if I like to be scented. I'm so glad Paula's Choice line includes conditioner and I hope they never discontinue the hair care line. While I can find flagrance free shampoos (mostly baby ones), I'm not aware of any other flagrance free conditioner. The Smooth Finish conditioner simply does the job: in 3-5 minutes it conditions my hair (fine, frizzy, with dry ends) leaving it soft and smooth. It doesn't eliminate all frizz, but nothing does. The consistency is that of a thick cream, easy to both apply and rinse. It doesn't weight the hair down, which is essential with my fine hair. Bonus: I don't get back-acne when I use this conditioner! My only complaint is the packaging; the conditioner is thick and towards the end of the bottle it becomes very hard to get product out. A bottle with a pump or one that stands on the lid would be better.

Great for frizzy hair without weighing hair down

I have super curly hair, not coils thought, and if you have curly hair you have super dry hair. I have used expensive deep treatments which I thought were working until I would go to the salon and they would mention how I really needed to start using good hair care because my hair is just sooo dry (except they didn't know I already was)...... Now I use Paulas Choice shampoo and conditioner and my hair and scalp have never felt better, cleaner, softer and bouncy.....best I have ever used I follow with Living Proof hair stylers to keep with the lightweight, clean feel of the shampoo and conditioner and I love the results

Great conditioner. Plain and simple.

This stuff works. Plain and simple. It's thick but not greasy. Easy to work through your hair. It works without having to leave it in for 3-5 min. Detangles. Rinses well. Oh and you don't smell like a piece of fruit. Bonus. You can shave your legs with it. And I use it as a leave in conditioner for my ends as well. Only complaint is the bottle. A pump would work so much better.

For legs as well as hair

I have a hard time finding fragrance-free hair products and this is a great conditioner. I love it best, though, for shaving my legs - just apply a very thin film. My legs used to be dry and itchy but no more!

Surprised by How Much I Love This

5

This conditioner is great! Fragrance Free hair products are hard to come by, so I figured this conditioner would be more about avoiding irritation and less about how well it would work. I was shocked at how effective this conditioner was at conditioning my hair. It's left soft, shiny, free of frizz, and the texture looks so much better. I can leave it to air dry and it look great!

I keep coming back to this

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.

really really good conditioner...better than high end lines

5

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!

Great Conditioner

5

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.

First conditioner I've actually wanted to use regularly

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.
