Honest reviews


super moisturizing, cream, love it!

The Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner truly lives up to its name! Just like the leave-in, this product is also weightless, and just as moisturizing. I used this product separate from the leave-in, and it also detangled my hair. I also enjoyed the creaminess and of this conditioner, and the smell is very nice too. Using this product with the leave-in made my hair super soft and left it moisturized and hydrated for several days.

good moisturizing

My hair is long, thick, and full, so it can take a fair amount of conditioner and not look weighed down. I’m mainly looking for something that will help me comb out my hair more easily while it is wet and add softness and body when it is dry. This did both, though it isn’t better than some of the other conditioners that I’ve tried on the higher end of the scale. The best I’ve tried so far is Tresemme Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Conditioner in terms of softness and ease of comb-through. However, Nexxus’s products produce superior shine and make my older hair (I’m 48) look better overall. They clearly are salon-level in terms of how your hair will look.If your concern is about how your hair looks rather than how it feels, then I definitely recommend using Nexxus shampoo and conditioner. If you’re simply looking for something which improves texture while maintaining body and reducing frizz, then Tresemme is better.

what a lifesaver!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! With thick hair that reacts to humidity in the SOuth in 2 seconds flat, I need a conditioner that will help weigh it down, without being heavy. This one does just that, and leave my hair soft and manageable.I like to use a small amount AFTER I wash my hair as a leave in conditioner- it gives me curls that I havent had since I was a small child, as it seals the hair and allows it to go back to it’s curly origin! I use it the same way on my daughters long hair and her tangles have reduced by 65% easy! That alone is worth it!I have also found that I can add a little water to a small amount and put on dry hair and I can get some control back, after my hair has frizzes out. WHEW.Hydralight is a lifesaver!

Light conditioner absorbs well but makes my hair frizzy.

Nexxus Hydralight seemed a great solution for my fine hair that tends to get oily if I use heavy conditioners like Pantene or Dove. Several other conditioners don’t work either. After using the Nexxus conditioner several times I am pleased with how well it absorbs and leaves hair feeling softer.Unfortunately, it does not prevent the frizz, if anything, it exacerbates it as my hair becomes frizzy and fly-away and I have to apply hair serums or sprays to smooth it down. On the positive side, it does not weigh hair down and my hair does not get oily and sticky like with other conditioners but it’s impossible to live with the frizz. Makes it like a bad hair day every day unless I apply other hair products and style it.I still gave it 3 stars as it keeps the hair soft and non-greasy and works out well if I use a frizz control spray while styling my hair.

Nice Conditioner But Funky Fragrance.

Nexxus’ Hydralight Conditioner works as well as other conditioners that I have recently tested (Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Deep Conditioning Shine Mask, 8 Ounce,Tresemme Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment, 6 Ounce). It leaves my hair soft, shiny & bouncy.Unlike the moroccan infusion conditioner, which has a heavy fragrance, this Nexxus product has a lighter fragrance – however, the fragrance that it has smells like wet, dead grass. The smell is a little off-putting at first.Overall, a nice product, but nothing to make it stand out in a crowd.

Rosemarie Mc Farland, KS

didn’t like the smell

The first thing I noticed when I used this conditioner is the smell. I did not like it. It’s hard to describe but had somewhat of a chemical smell to it. The conditioner worked well. My hair was soft and conditioned afterwards. Fortunately, the smell did not linger too long afterwards. After my hair was dry I did not notice the smell anymore.

Pat Merryville, LA

Ok conditioner, nothing special

This is a light conditioner that doesn’t leave a heavy film on the hair, yet helps with static and detangling. The scent is light and I had no problem combing it through my thick hair. I only gave it 3 stars because it did not leave my hair very soft or moisturized. The product is not terrible by any means, but there are better conditioners for less money out there.

Nexxus Conditioner = Soft, manageable, healthy hair

My hair is mid-back length, naturally curly and color treated, so using a good conditioner is very important to keep my hair from becoming frizzy and dry. I have to admit that Nexxus is a brand that I have never bought because of the price. For me I’ve been happy with several conditioners that I purchase for less than $5.The first thing I liked aboutNexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditionerwas the scent. It is a fresh, clean, slightly citrus scent that rinses away nicely. I’ve been able to use this conditioner on a daily basis, it isn’t weighing my hair down and it’s leaving my hair super soft, but not frizzy. Overall I cannot find a negative about Nexxus, not even the price. And although I may not make it my everyday conditioner, I can see splurging on it to use occasionally when I feel my hair needs a boost.

Fulfills its Promises …

Considering Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner? Here are some quick thoughts to assist you in your decision making process:Pros:-Very light fragrance.-While the product itself is a bit thick, do not worry. It rinses extremely clean. (I was actually concerned that I would have to use a leave-in conditioner later, but no such need).-Left my hair soft, shiny, and not weighed down.-The bottle itself is ergonomic. It fits nicely in my hand. (However, if I am in the shower and grab the wet bottle too near the top, it consistently slips from my grip … probably because it is tapered and somewhat heavy. So, just be careful there.)Cons:-I have used similar products with comparable results for half the price. There is nothing new, or special about this.-Maybe its because I’m a color theorist, but this pale blue bottle is not attractive. Perhaps the design team was trying to achieve a “sky blue” hue to underscore the weightlessness of the product. However, it only succeeds at being easily overlooked (at best).Certainly, the product works fine and fulfills all of its promises. Nonetheless, there are a number of fantastic products that surpass this. Anything in the Wen line is phenomenal and well worth the price (but there is a learning curve attached to Wen products, so purchase accordingly).

Marisa Elmo, TX

Just okay for a moisturizing conditioner…

I didn’t quite like this conditioner quite as well as other Nexxus conditioners I use (and love). First, the bottle arrived 2.5″ short of being full though it wasn’t spilled or opened. The scent was just okay and although my hair felt smooth and tangle free, it also felt a little coated and flat instead of shiny and clean. It’s not bad, but I probably wouldn’t get this one again.

Freda Alvin, IL


Nexxus is meant to be one of the best conditioners around but I do not think it is worth the high price. I use a lot of conditioner (almost daily) and this conditioner does nothing special to my hair.

Muriel Ropesville, TX

i like it

I have thick and wavy hair that reaches my mid-back. It is naturally dry and I live in the dry desert of Nevada, so it can get really dry if the proper precautions are not taken.I normally wash my hair weekly or biweekly and need a conditioner that is light but still does a good job of smoothing and moisturizing. I was drawn to this conditioner as it has coconut oil and I use that occasionally as a hair mask and for all things skin related.This is a great conditioner. Light and does a great job of moisturizing – it offers everything that I look for in a conditioner. I like the convenience of purchasing on Amazon or in a drugstore and not having to visit my salon. I will continue to purchase this product – over my preferred salon brand!

Sheree Johnsonville, IL

Works Ok but pricey.

I got this for my wife to use as she uses a lot of conditioner for her hair. I thought it would be more of a salon quality conditioner and work a little better than your normaL conditioners. It just seemed to work ok for her and not like the other pricier brands that she normally uses. For the quality I would just use a cheaper brand. The scent is also just ok and nothing really great smelling. Probably will not use again.

Not Worth The Money

This conditioner is fairly expensive and I’ve found better out there for less. It left my hair very soft, but very dull. It’s doesn’t leave a residue that I can tell b/c my hair feels soft & not weighed down. I’ve used it a few times with different shampoos and the result is always the same: soft, dull hair.I think other product names might get removed, but I reviewed another condition that works way better for my hair type (wavy, fine that I blow dry & flat iron every day) that I’d recommend.

Darlene Kingston, MI

Absolutely Love this Conditioner!

This conditioner came along at the perfect time. It is June, the weather has been rainy and muggy, and my layered, naturally wavy hair has that Brillo pad look, especially on top at the ends of the layers. A recent highlighting job dried the ends out even more. I couldn’t get the layers to lay right now matter how I blow-dried or what styling products I used.My conditioner (another brand) bottle wasn’t empty yet but this Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner had arrived from Vine so I stuck it in the shower to give it a try. Can’t hurt, right?What a difference. It was obviously the conditioner. My hair was soft, shiny and smooth when I blow-dried it, the waves stayed in, but the ends weren’t crispy and sticking up all over like before. I use volume mousse and root booster (like always) and I have full soft volume but it doesn’t look like I stuck my finger in a light socket, thanks to Nexxus conditioner. I LOVE it, and when my Vine bottle is gone, I will be buying more, and that is the biggest compliment a Vine reviewer can give.Recommendation: Absolutely love this conditioner.

Kathrine Hagerman, NM

Light and Fluffy!

This conditioner does exactly what it claims to do which is strengthen the hair without weighing it down. I was so surprised at the results and how light and fluffy my daughters hair was after using this. It has a very very light but refreshing scent. The only thing that bothered me was that it didn’t seem as moisturizing like I hoped. To get the full effect of this product I suggest to use the complete line! The bottle its self is pretty big and lathers great so I know it will last a while. All in all I was impressed with it.

Letha Luxora, AR

Weightless, Pleasant-Smelling Conditioner

I have used Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner in conjunction with the shampoo. Both are very lightweight and have a pleasing fragrance. My hair feels very clean and light after using both, although it can tend to get a little stringy if I use this product for a few days in a row. Intermixing these with another shampoo and conditioner for a few days each week seems to work well.

Tamika Eton, GA

Does What It Says

This really is a great conditioner, especially for thick/dry hair. At first I used a little too much (because I am used to using a ton of conditioner to get the job done), but after a wash or two I figured out you don’t need but a small portion. It is lightweight and smoothes dry hair. My only issue was the smell. At first I liked it, but then it just seemed a little strong. I am happy with how it conditions, regardless. I have never used Nexxus before, and I will definitely be looking at more of there products from now on.

Ursula Thoreau, NM

OK conditioner

Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture conditioner lives up to their claim of not weighing down my hair. It only takes a tiny amount to condition my shoulder length hair, and it rinses very cleanly. The scent seems slightly different from their Hydralight shampoo. The shampoo has a fresher, cleaner scent, while the scent of the conditioner has a hint of a plastic odor. The scent does not remain on my hair, though, so I’m okay with it. My hair doesn’t feel as soft as it does when I use other types of conditioners, but it doesn’t feel dry either. The effect of the conditioner is light, but sometimes that’s all I want. I’m not sure if I would get another bottle of this conditioner when it’s gone. I really prefer the Nexxus Youth Renewal line of shampoo and conditioners over the Hydralight line.

Tisha Marvel, CO

Gives greasy appearance quickly

I used the Nexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner along with theNexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Shampoo, 13.5 Ounce(as recommended), and found that my hair did feel nicer and softer but it also became weighed down and greasy looking by the end of the evening (not even 14 hours after washing!). I tried using less and rinsing more (just in case) but after a week of using with no change in results, I’m really not pleased or impressed. My almost 50 year old hair is fine and thinning, so when this happens, it really looks awful, making this a conditioner I won’t be using or recommending.

Tabitha West New York, NJ

Keeps my hair looking healthy

This Nexxus conditioner works well for my hair. I have long hair that I highlight and it’s rather fine in texture. I use this conditioner daily on the bottom few inches of my hair. It seems to work well and my hair stays healthy looking between trims.The consistency of the conditioner is nice. It doesn’t feel heavy or thick going on and it rinses off completely. The only thing I don’t like about this conditioner is the scent. It is floral, which is usually nice, but it is very strong in my opinion. It’s not bad after it’s rinsed and my hair is dry, but while I’m using it, it’s a little too strong for my liking.

Mellisa Lawrenceville, PA

Lightweight, but truly conditions – great for thick hair

I have very thick, somewhat coarse hair, so I need some serious conditioner to make it feel good. As it happens, the line of shampoo/conditioner that I have used for many years was discontinued, so I was in the market for something else. I tried a few samples and hadn’t found the right stuff. I know Nexxus makes high-quality products, so I gave this conditioner a try. It really does what it promises. It feels lightweight going on the hair, it rinses clean, but it does condition your hair very nicely. My heavy hair is not weighed down any further with a gunky conditioner residue. It looks and feels nice. I liked this so much that I ordered the shampoo. Well done, Nexxus!

Sue Nettie, WV

Extremely light

This is such a light conditioner it almost isn’t like using any conditioner at all.The scent is a very slight rainwater scent which lingers for a couple of hours in my hair.It didn’t improve tangles in my thick but fine hair, but it did smooth it a bit. Actually, it’s just what I like in a conditioner. I don’t want anything weighing my hair down, or leaving a coating on it I can feel. Nor do I want my hair to be made any softer than it naturally is. So this is pretty much perfect for my hair type.This is a white creamy lotion. It doesn’t spread out much at all on the head, so it was hard to get my entire head evenly coated with it. It also wasn’t that easy to rinse out. I had to rinse twice as much as I usually do to get this out of my hair. The tangles were still there, and the only noticable difference in my hair was the slight smoothing effect.I’m not sure I would buy this again, as it almost was like not using any conditioner. I am on the fence about this.

Kendra Powell, TN

light, detangling, soft

I love this product. I’ve bought it before and the first thing that hits you is how light it is…not a heavy goopy conditioner. It’s weightless (although I primarily use it only at the roots) and you can detangle with just your fingers in the shower.During the day my hair felt swingy and light and the shine was noticeable. No obnoxious odor either.My own gripe would be that as it is thin, it’s easy to spill…so beware that you don’t spill it all. Also, if you are using a good serum like Tresemme or Biosilk, you’d likely not need this above and beyond a regular (cheaper) conditioner.

Adelaide Slab Fork, WV

Fantastic conditioner for coarse hair!

I have coarse, wavy hair that I round brush to shape and smooth, and it’s hard to find hair products that help to control my hair without knocking all the body out of it. This conditioner did a fantastic job! I end up with a lot of volume at the top where I want it, and soft, sleek hair at the bottom.I loved the conditioner so much that I ordered the matching shampoo, but the two together seemed to be more conditioning than my hair could take… it works much better in conjunction with my cheap Garnier Fructis. I guess that’s actually a plus! Overall, a great conditioner and I will definitely buy it again.

Irma Verona, OH

Pairs well with the matching shampoo

Trying out this Nexxus conditioner was the first time I’ve used Nexxus products, and combined with the matching shampoo I found I liked them quite a bit. The conditioning is light and it doesn’t weigh hair down at all. It’s thicker than basic Suave conditioners, but not as dense as many Pantene conditioners. It keeps hair light and fluffy, and still keeps it smooth enough that brushing through wet hair is easy. The conditioner is white in color and has a very mild, barley-there fragrance. It’s similar in scent to the shampoo that goes with it, that a citrus scent to it, with very light floral undertones. The citrus in them reminds me of the smell of lemons. Because of the way it keeps hair light and fluffy and the bright fragrance, I could see this being a great shampoo and conditioning combo for summertime. The fragrance layers well when using the matching shampoo. The two together work well to keep hair light and fluffy, and give it a wonderful scent.

Deirdre Montier, MO

Good But Pricey

The challenge of fine hair is finding an effective conditioner that does not weigh it down. This conditioner promises to do just that. Formulated with deep sea minerals and antioxidants, it does not contain silicone. The bottle is tall, slim and easy to handle. the conditioner is thick and creamy but easy to apply. It rinses cleanly and I appreciated the light, fruity scent. Overall, my hair felt pleasantly soft and clean. It was not heavy, limp or greasy.My primary reservation is the cost. While not as expensive as salon products, it is more costly than many equally acceptable conditioners. If you like the Nexxus brand and don’t mind spending money on hair care, this is a high performing conditioner with a pleasing fragrance and texture.

Janet Townsend, MA

Worked Great on Split Ends

After two weeks I’ve noticed quite a nice change in the smoothness and softness of hair and also a clear lack of split ends (without a hair cut!) It smells pleasant and works well. If you use a lot of product or it’s been a while since you’ve cut off the split ends I recommend this as a good conditioner.

Iris Dover, ID

Hydralight Yes, The Nexxus….Maybe Not Due To Price

Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner is an excellent product. It conditions very nicely, leaving hair fresh and clean, with absolutely no build up, oiliness, or weight left by some products.The ingredient list is as follows:Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Behentrimonium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Dipropylene Glycol, Potassium Chloride, Lactic Acid, Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, and Sea Salt.The coconut oil is an ingredient which really helps condition the hair while not making it greasy. The scent is very nice, between the coconut oil and added fragrance.This is really a great conditioner for most hair types. My only negative comment is the price. It cost well over $15 for a 13.5 ounce bottle. There are other products which perform just as well for a fraction of the cost. For example, Suave’s Professionals Moroccan Infusion product line is great, and you apply a similar amount of conditioner, yet the price is a mere fraction of the Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner.So, if you do not mind the cost – this product is excellent. If you are on a budget, or just don’t like to spend a lot on hair care products, I would suggest looking at less expensive alternatives, such as Suave Professionals.

Light easy rinsing with pleasant scent

I have a love – hate relationship with conditioners. With my dry hair I need to use a conditioner, but I dislike taking the time, the almost impossible to rinse qualities of many conditioners, and the oily feel they often leave on my hair. Happily the Nexxus Hydralight conditioner was easy to rinse, left my hair feeling clean and not weighed down or greasy, and smells very light and pleasant.Using the conditioner with the shampoo and the moisturizing leave in mousse left my hair soft, light, and bouncy. I even used my blow dryer and I still don’t have fuzzy ends, unusual, especially this time of year when NOLA is actually not humid.My only complaint, and the same with the shampoo, is I don’t care for the bottle shape. I find the heavy round middle and smaller top hard to squeeze with wet hands, and so I squeeze to hard and get to much on my hand. This is a minor quibble in an otherwise great product.
