Honest reviews


Am I missing something?

I purchased Smooth as Silk conditioner after reading rave reviews on Amazon and on haircare blogs. I was so disappointed when it didn’t leave my hair feeling smooth, silky, or even soft. I used it at first as a deep conditioner and was unimpressed. I have been using it to co-wash until the product runs out and am getting the same lackluster results. I agree with the reviewers who commented on the impractical bottle design. I hope the company takes note. On a positive note, the citrus fragrance of the conditioner is nice for summer. I realize that products don’t work the same for everyone, so I wouldn’t discourage anyone from buying Smooth as Silk conditioner. It just didn’t work for me.

Looking for a solution for dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair? This isn’t it.

I am in my early twenties and my hair has suffered a decade of all sorts of chemicals. After reading these reviews I was hoping this would bring moisture back into my hair. Suffice to say, it didn’t. I was better off buying Herbal Essences from my local grocery store. I won’t be buying this product again.If your hair needs some serious treatment go for Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner by Aussie. Trust me, you will be glad you tried out Aussie.

Giovanni Impresses Again!

The Smooth as Silk Conditioner is one of many Giovanni haircare products I’ve tried and loved. The Smooth as Silk is packaged just like the others, which is a bit of a downside as it’s hard to get that last bit of product out! However, that is the only negative about this conditioner. The positives: it’s organic, not tested on animals, gives hair amazing slip, smells wonderful, and conditions nicely. One great thing about Giovanni products in general is that they are an organic line that is easily found in department stores/pharmacies. I will buy this product again 🙂

Awesome product!

I have natural hair and all of the Giovanni products that I have tried so far work well in my 4B hair type. I use it everyday as a co-wash in the shower and I shampoo once a week. My hair feels great.

Jade Bowdon, ND

Awesome conditioner

I love that this conditioner has all natural ingredients in it. I also love that it makes my very long, coarse, wavy hair smooth and shiny. I wouldnt want to be without it for long.

Kristine Goodland, MN

I’ve used better

I like this but it isn’t the greatest. It is also cheaper at target and khols for larger size bottles. I would probably use it again but it wouldn’t be my first option.

Leigh Bath, NY

good for 3c and 4a hair types

I was hesitant about getting this product, but after watching youtube video I took a shot. Wow this stuff made my hair sooooo soft and detangled at the same time. It lathered up a little which I loved and made my hair smell citrusy, and feel silky.

I have nothing but good things to say about this conditioner. I use it religiously!! I am super bummed that I didn’t get more. It leaves your hair hydrated, never dull! When using this I don’t need to apply a lot of product to moisturize my hair!!

Beatriz Chico, CA


Weighed my hair down after using it awhile. Would not buy again. But that is me. I like my hair feeling light and clean. Heavy products are not permitted in my coif.

Soft and smooth hair

I love this conditioner. When I ran out of it, I could really see and feel a difference in my hair, which is long. With the conditioner, my hair is smooth and soft. Without it, using another conditioner, my hair became dry and rough. Happy to get a three pack of this and will always keep it around.

Sonya Yorkville, CA

fantastic conditioner, never want to be without it

This conditioner is great for hair, I have dry length and only use it on the length. it’s very moisturizing and gives great slip without having any silicones in it. The scent is very light as well and not synthetic or overpowering. Make my hair smooth as silk, just like it says. I love it.

Giovanni is on of the top 3 conditioner on the market. Amazon sells a pack of 3 for very very good price. You won’t find a cheaper price any where, I looked so save your self the time & buy it with out any second guessing your self.Its good for:curly haircolored hairdamaged hairover exposed hairdry hairThe one more great bonus, it is a green product. It’s a green product

Two Stars

I hate the shampoo so it’s hard to tell if this conditioner did anything for my hair. When I got out of the shower and my hair was wet trying to comb it was absolutely horrible. I could barely get the comb through my hair. I have very healthy hair as well. I just can’t recommend this product. It also had no smell. After I dried my hair my hair smelled like I had been outside. I knew I should have tried something else because I have used Giovanni products a long time and remembered I did not like them then so why would I like them now. Try the desert essence coconut shampoo and conditioner. It’s actually good and smells awesome. good Luck!

Allyson San Acacia, NM

my new favorite

I actually meant to buy the leave in but being that this a natural product I have been leaving it in anyway which just leaves my hair looking and feeling great. My hair is actually in box braids right now and I am using this two times a day. My new growth does not look rough at all and I love that this conditioner isn’t making my extension slip. I’m so in love with this conditioner oh and the smell my boo stopped complaining about my braids in his face it smells so good lol.

Kate Texola, OK

I love this product

I orinally thought this was the leave in conditioner, but it doesn’t matter love it still. Gives my hair much slip. I love the way it makes it feel.

Patrice Livermore, KY

Great Product

I love this conditioner, it makes my hair very soft and manageable. I will purchase the Smooth as Silk Shampoo as well.

Carla Wytopitlock, ME

Great conditioner.

I use this along with the 50:50 balanced shampoo and I have finally found the perfect combo! I then use the serum after slightly drying my hair and my hair does not need to be flat ironed any more.

A Saviour for Curly Hair

I have long (about mid-back) hair full of loose curls, wild twists, and tight, bouncy corkscrews–and it’s very thick and fluffy and a 3A/3B cusp (think Rogue from the 1992 X-Men cartoon or Merida from Disney-Pixar’s Brave and that’s pretty much my hair). I find that Giovanni Smooth as Silk is the best conditioner for my hair that is in my price range. It is a light formula with an equally light scent, but provides deep, nourishing conditioning to curly hair. I use it every other day, leaving it in for 3-4 minutes and then once a week leaving it in for 30 minutes before rinsing it out with cold water and following up with a leave-in treatment. My hair is much better as a result, and I would definitely recommend it to people with medium to thick textured hair.

Works great on 4A Afro Textured Hair

Been natural for 2 years now & have spent LOTS of money on products. This product works great for my 4A Afro Textured hair. You can instantly feel a difference in your hair, it will be smooth, soft, & easy to manage. The ingrediant list is great too. For an extra treat, apply smooth as silk w/Kinky Curly Knot Today to detangle your hair. You will be in heaven. Only gave 4 stars b/c there is some arm work involved with getting the product out of the bottle. I leave my bottle sitting upside down for easier squeezing.P.s. have tried all the shampoos and don’t like any of them. The protein treatment is nice. Try Kinky Curly Come Clean

Not What I expected

Its was just ok for me!!! I am a hairstylist so products are a big deal to me.. But as 1 should knw to see any results of aproduct wait at least 6 months

Tabatha Blanchard, ND

Love It.

This and it’s accompanying shampoo are simply the bomb. All natural, cruelty free and they work. This is the only line of natural hair care products that has worked on my dry hair. I don’t think I will ever be using another shampoo/conditioner combo in my life, unless they stop making it.

Adela Hockingport, OH

My favorte

I use to get this from Wal-mart, buy they never seem to order any(I think I bought out all their stock).So I have to get from here. My hair really loves this conditioner. I use it mostly as a deep conditioner and my naturally kinky hair feels really soft afterwards. I’ve been using it for over a year and it has really curved the shedding problems my hair use to have.

Jackie Rincon, NM

Good stuff

This is a nice conditioner for regular daily use. With added oils, it’s good for deep conditioning too. One of my faves.

Charmaine Bristol, RI

i love this

this is a great conditioner , i use it with the matching shampoo . great !! i have dry hair , and i’m trying to grow it LONG . i think with the help of this conditioner and it’s matching shampoo i will have way less split ends and my hair will be able to grow long .

Teri Paul Smiths, NY

Love it

My hair is always flat and frizzy. I have really long hair and it gets oily so I wash every day. This conditioner helps detangle and really makes my hair soft and LESS frizzy. My husband loves the scent and I do too. Will buy again!

Lola Merkel, TX

Great scent and awesome for unmanageable, dry, curly hair

This is the only conditioner that allows me to finger-comb my thick, curly hair when it’s wet without producing more tangles! No comb necessary in the shower with this product because knots and tangles just slip right out. I don’t feel like it leaves film on my hair after I’ve rinsed, as some conditioners do. The packaging isn’t the best and in fact one of my bottles was leaking upon arrival but it’s still an awesome product and I love the light grapefruit scent.

Araceli Methow, WA

Best conditioner ever, poor bottle design

I love this conditioner–it makes my hair silky soft without feeling weighed down. It is very difficult to get the last few uses out of the bottle. Hopefully Giovanni will rethink their package design. Still, this conditioner is worth it.

Krista Hubbard, IA

Must buy

I have 4c hair and use it as a detangler and leave in. It is so smooth and silky while conditions the hair. Like others hard to get to the last drop.
