I recently purchased Abba "Nourishing" conditioner from a local Beauty Supply that was occasionally has specials on Abba products. The woman sales rep recommeded both the Abba shampoo and conditioner. (I have known her for years and trust her advice)
The Nourishing conditioner lists as a "leave in" on the bottle but I was told it could be used either as a rinse out or leave in conditioner. From the ingredient list it appears the conditioner is mostly natural.
Has anyone had any experience with either the Nourishing conditioner or Abba products? I will be using it on my wife's hair which is thick, healthy, over shoulder length and colored a lovely light auburn.

i havent used that particular conditioner, but i LOVE abba Moisture Scentsation - its loaded with silicone, my hair eats it up! but it does have mint, so anyone with a sensitive scalp should watch for that. i find that i can wash it all out, or just most out, and my hair is a snap to detangle and ends up thick and shiny. dont put too much faith in the "natural" ingredients, its really the other ingredients (conditioners, quats, detanglers, etc) with the chemical names that will make a difference to your wifes hair. anyway, good luck with the conditioner, let us know how your wife likes it! :mrgreen:

I used to use the Moisture Scentsation and really liked it. I tried one of the shampoos for dry hair but can't remember if I liked it or not. :D

i've been using one of their shampoos once a week, when i clarify (been using conditioner for cleansing lately)...it's called creme moist, and so far for the past month my skin hasn't had any adverse reactions to it (i.e. no itchies or rashes). good stuff, i think.

Just for your info (and thanks for your post)... I used the Abba Nourishing conditioner on my lady...and .....great results!! Used it as a leave in conditioner and then used Graham Web straight style gel before setting her in 2 inch rollers.
The Graham Web gel contains silicons however I did not see any listed on the ingredients of the Nourishing conditioner. The combination of the two products was great....her hair was soft, great texture and held the style well. Her hair also had a nice shine ...which enhanced her light auburn hair... :bluegrin:

I used to use abba before I used all natural products, true abba is pretty natural, and it made my hair thicker, but realized it probably was bad for my hair anyway. Pretty good while it lasted.
I get the must luster with natural stuff though. ;)
