Dr. Bronner's Certified Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse Citrus -- 8 fl oz
Very surprised by this!
Although I had to stop using the Castille soap as Shampoo, I will continue to use this as a Rinse once a week. I was quite surprised how it actually conditioned my hair (the texture is very odd and you would think it wouldn't). The smell is very 'organic' citrusy, but tolerable. I would MUCH rather it be lavendar, but it is what it is :-)

Finally! A product that conditions, WHILE LEAVING MY HAIR FULL...& NO FLYAWAYS & NO FRIZZ!! It moisturizes my very wavy hair.
Finding the right ratio of Conditioner to water took a few tries:
4-5 capfuls in 12 oz. of water works for me.
I put my concoction into a pump bottle. I pump alot onto my scalp & ends, then comb-through my hair with my fingers. I keep applying the diluted conditioner UNTIL MY HAIR FEELS SLICK & MY FINGERS CAN COMB COMPLETELY THROUGH MY HAIR (about 3-4 oz.'s per washing). For reference, my hair's length is mid-shoulder blades, medium thickness.
EWG RATED THIS CONDITIONER A ZERO for TOXICITY. YAHOO!!
The lemon juice does tingle, but it doesn't bother me.
I wash (my face & body too) with:
Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Organic Shikakai Soap Spearmint Peppermint
Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse Citrus
And put (on my towel-dried ends) half-a-pump of:
Dr. Bronner's Magic Organic Hair Creme Lavender Coconut
I'm thrilled I can put my air-dried hair into a pony-tail & NOT have all those fly-away-hairs around my face. You know...the ones that make you look like a crazy person! AND my hair ISN'T greasy or weighed down. FINALLY!!
Even my teenage daughters like it! Teens can be hard to please.
I'm a suburban Mom trying to use more effective, eco-friendly, non-toxic products.
FYI, the Dr. Bronner's soap leaves a residue in my shower, his SAL SUDS CLEANER removes it instantly.

I have used many of Dr Bonners products since the 70's. I was excited to buy this hair rinse thinking it would leave my thin fine hair more vibrant and looking forward to a nice fresh scent. I knew I would need to mix it with water before applying, but I was fine with that.
I was surprised when I first opened the bottle and being hit with an odor that was not refreshing at all !! It is unpleasant and not what I thought a citrus should be. I am not sure what others are experiencing when they talk about it almost being too strong. I smell no citrus what-so-ever! I have given it five chances, it leaves my hair extremely hard to comb and when it drys looking dry and frizzy. And yes, I am using exactly as directed. The ONLY positive is the shine.
I will never buy this again, and not recommend it to anyone.

smells better than vinegar
This is a great alternative to vinegar rinses. The DIY vinegar ones I've made smell horrid but now that my Dr Bronner is empty I'll try a vinegar rinse with essential oils for fragrance then wash it out afterwards. I still use a cream-based conditioner to finger-detangle (I use Nature's Gate Biotin).
