Availability: This conditioner is EVERYWHERE, which is great. I have seen it at shops, supermarkets, markets, and local salons throughout the country. I was even able to by it when I was doing my NYSC.

Place a plastic cap over the hair and sit under a warm dryer for 10-15 minutes or leave on the hair for 45 minutes to 1 hour without heat. Rinse thoroughly.

Fragrance: It has a strong orange scent. It can be a bit overwhelming. However, it doesn’t last once I rinse and style my hair.

Texture and color: It has a light orange color and slightly liquid-like consistency. It is not runny but not too thick.

Packaging: It comes in a squeeze bottle and I always try to get every bit out. ORS recently changed its logo and branding for all its products. I like the new look and design of the packaging.

Uses: I have used it alone, mixed with oils, and mixed with oils and conditioners. It works well for all these uses. Typically, I use this conditioner for my deep conditioner mix and I love the results. It helps to make my hair so very soft. This conditioner is a balanced moisture and protein conditioner. I like the fact that it has some protein in it because my hair needs protein often since it is so fine. This conditioner behaves more moisturizing for my hair. If your hair is very sensitive to protein, I would not recommend using this conditioner every week.

This product is available essentially everywhere in Nigeria, which is incredible. If you don’t live in a major city, you can have a great conditioner for your hair journey.

Would I purchase again? Yes. I have used this conditioner for years, long before I started this quest for healthy hair. I even tweeted ORS about how I feel about this conditioner recently.  I like the results that I get and it is at a reasonable price.
