John Masters Citrus & Neroli Detangler Review

Am I the only one who thinks good detanglers are so hard to find?  I just have the hardest time finding something that detangles WITHOUT making my hair greasy.  Until...I came across John Masters.

Claim: This lightweight formula detangles and conditions with a highly-effective combination of 18 certified-organic ingredients: natural soy proteins and borage oil replenish lipid content, wheat & soy proteins restore strength and shine, and essential oils of grapefruit, lemon and neroli provide an uplifting aroma. Makes a great leave-in conditioner. Safe for color-treated hair. 8 fl oz.

My hair is weird.  I have chemically treated hair, which I'm currently growing out entirely, so it's dry BUT my roots and scalp get greasy very quickly. It's fine, but I have lots of it.  At first, I wasn't impressed with this product. I bought it to use as a conditioner, in the shower, and found myself going through so much of it.  I would rub it into my hair, after shampooing, leave it in for about 5 - 10 minutes and rinse.  After I rinsed, I felt like it all washed out and my hair felt dry again.  I had gone through 1/3 of the bottle in a week and was pretty upset.  THEN, I decided to use it as a detangler without using any conditioner in the shower.  (I know it specifically states that it's a detangler, but the bottle and associate at Whole Foods told me that it could be used in the shower as a conditioner.)  What a difference that made!  It left my hair so soft and easy to comb through.  The smell is very light and citrusy, definitely doesn't linger.  It's a lotion consistency that just rubs so nicely into your hair.  I use about a quarter size amount and that's enough to do from my ears down + rub the remaining residue on the top half to help comb it out as well.  I will definitely be repurchasing this detangler.

Retails for approx $22.50 CAD.  For more information, check out  You can purchase it from, and most health food stores including Whole Foods.
