Hey loves…I’m back with another product review and this will be my last from the ORS line of deep conditioners for now. So I tried out the ORS HAIRepair Nourishing Conditioner and overall I think it’s a good conditioner but definitely not great. I also have to…have to…have to touch on it’s scent because it was the first thing that hit me when I opened the package. It had a distinct banana smell!!! Now don’t get me wrong I actually love bananas (at least how they taste) but I wasn’t a fan of the smell at all! My mom on the other hand thought otherwise and loved the scent and didn’t think it was overpowering at all, so I guess it all depends if you like a banana scent or not.
The consistency of the conditioner really reminded me of the snack pack jello pudding that we all used to always have stacked up in our refrigerator back in the day haha…(except this one is banana flavored pudding LOL). When applying it did glide easily onto my hair which is usually a good indicator for slip. Although my hair felt pretty soft within minutes after application, I was eager to wash it out because I could not ignore that darn banana smell. Luckily the scent didn’t linger after the conditioner was washed out…WHEW!
I also cannot truthfully say whether or not it helped me with detangling because I had pre-poo’d and finger detangled the night before. What I can say is that my hair did feel moisturized after rinsing and it also felt strong and not mushy. The conditioner is a light protein, so I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone with protein sensitivity.
Final thoughts: Although the product did do what it claimed to do; ‘provide moisture, added strength and shine to dry, weak and damaged hair,’ I highly doubt I’ll be purchasing this again because the scent really turned me off! Plussss I’ve tried a few other conditioners that did these things and much more and did not smell like freshly peeled bananas!
I really really really want to know your thoughts on this product. Am I the only one who can’t get over the scent? Leave a comment below…Nuff Love Natasha ♥
