Not Necessarily For Fine Hair

My hair gets massively dried out in the winter, regardless of how I wash it and style it, so I thought I would give this a try.After just a few uses, my hair looks a LOT healthier, but I have fine hair (fine – NOT thin), so even though I only use a little, my hair gets too weighted down by this product. It’s not a product I could use very often, even though I liked the results.

Good Conditioner

My must haves in a conditioner:Leaves hair soft to the touchMoisturizes to prevent hair breakagePleasant fragranceDetangles the hairNo greasy residueI’ve used this product three weeks in a row and thus far, it certainly meets my criteria.My only complaint would be the price.

Diane Catalina, AZ

conditions well

This conditioner is really nice. I like the fruity fragrance it has. It is a nice scent but not too overpowering. This conditioner is thick and creamy. It did a good job of conditioning my dry, curly, color-treated hair. My hair was nice and soft after using it. I did not feel it was too heavy or weighed it down. I like that this conditioner contains anti-aging properties in it. My could use all the help it can get.

“Good” Product …

Having tried the Youth Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner set, here are some notes to help you (the potential buyer) in your decision-making process:Packaging:-Pretty. Looks nice in my shower.-Handy “lip” at the top of the bottle to prevent it from slipping out of one’s hand in the shower.-Easy to open (and fully opens with very little pressure).-Tops unscrews easily (in case you live in an area which requires you to remove caps before recycling). (I find those “snaps-on caps” super frustrating when trying to remove that component for recycling).Product:-Pleasant candy/sugary fragrance. Not overwhelming … just sugary and inviting.-Though the conditioner is a thin consistency, do not be discouraged. This makes it easier to evenly distribute the product throughout your hair.-Rinses very clean.-Contains Omega 3, Argan Oil, CoQ10, and Vitamin E.Results:-The shampoo combined with this product made my hair smell sweet and look super shiny. However, I have attained the same results with products likePantene Pro-V NatureFusion Moisture Balance Shampoofor much cheaper. And, I have had considerably better results withWEN Pomegranate Cleansing Conditioner(which looks expensive, but it is both a shampoo/conditioner and, therefore, is entirely comparable to this set in price). It may also need to be noted that I am only in my 30s and that this product may have a greater impact on a more mature person’s hair.Bottomline: This is a “nice” product with results that one might see in many other products (without the hefty price-tag). So, while this is not a miracle in a bottle, it is a “good” shampoo and conditioner combo.

My new “go to” conditioner

My hair was dryish from a number of color treatments and I was hot packing expensive hair packs but it was still dryish. This worked. I am glad to have found it. It’s way better than creme conditioners although it is one.

A Very Effective Conditioner

Nexxus Youth Renewal Conditioner is an excellent conditioner! As I used it, I could feel that my hair was absorbing moisture. However, the results after my hair dried were the real proof of the excellence of this product! My hair, which tends to frizz and fly away, was smooth and shiny! I did not even need to use my usual products to smooth my hair! Even the drier ends looked moisturized! The pleasant, light, clean scent is very nice too!

Bye-bye stand up strands….

I confess. Since my hair turned gray and developed a mind of its own, there’s been a spot on the top of my head that seems to want to stand up and wave at the world. This is so Not Good.The only way I know how to tame my fly-away mane is through a good haircut and a good conditioner. The Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Conditioner seems to be just the stern task-master my wayward strands needed.I used the Nexxus youth renewal shampoo, conditioner, and blow dry spray and am quite pleased with the results. So far no waving at passers by. And I like the look. Finding a conditioner heavy duty enough to give me control over my hair yet light enough to allow volume and movement wasn’t easy.My hair has changed as I’ve aged; it’s not only gray, it’s drier and brittle and stubborn. The Nexxus Conditioner is taming my curls; thank goodness.

I Expected More. . . and Better

Having had luck with Nexxus in the past, I jumped at the chance to give this product a try. The first time I used it, my hair was definitely a bit softer, easier to get my comb through, a little shinier, and seemed to have a decent amount of volume and bounce.Subsequent usage of the conditioner didn’t exactly return those same results. Each time – and I have to admit that I don’t know what caused some of this – the volume decreased and my hair started to become more and more tangled. The latter was especially odd to me, because aside from a stray tangle every now and then, that’s never really been a problem for me. After using this conditioner several times, though, my hair started to develop actual knots that required a fair amount of time and care to comb through. I’ve never had that happen with a conditioner before, but I feel like I can attribute it to this one because after I switched back to the conditioner that I had been using before this experiment, the problem disappeared (the same held true when I tried another couple of brands, as well).As for the decreasing volume, it came as a surprise because, as other reviewers have noted, the conditioner is light and its consistency is not as creamy as I had originally expected it to be. I don’t know if the product left some kind of build-up on my hair or what, but just like with the tangling issue, once I stopped using this conditioner, the volume returned.Further, I have to add that even though other Nexxus products haven’t affected me this way, this conditioner resulted in some pretty heavy-duty breakouts – I rinsed my hair thoroughly (and then some) each and every time, but after each subsequent use, I noticed more breakouts on not only my face, but also on my neck, shoulders, and back. Again, all of that cleared up once I stopped using the product.To be completely fair, it could very well be that there’s just some chemical in the conditioner that I have an allergy to, so the things mentioned above might not happen to others who use this. I can add, though, that my mother also gave this a try and noted immediately that it made her hair flat.So, based on my experience (and my mother’s), this product just isn’t for me. The first time I used it, I was impressed. . . I just don’t know what happened after that. Pretty much all of the other reviews of this have been largely positive, so my less-than-good results might just have been an isolated occurrence. I would caution people with sensitive skin (and also those who are not keen on strong fragrances because that, too, is an issue here) to maybe research this a little more before giving it a try. Again, lots of people seem to like this a lot, so the odds seem to be pretty good that people who give this a try will be glad that they did – I just wish that I was one of them.

Love, love, love

I’ve been using this conditioner along with the shampoo that goes with it and I could not be happier with the results. My hair has gone from flat, slightly frizzy and shine free to voluminous, super shiny and soft. I’ve been disappointed by so many other shampoo/conditioners that have promised these results and instead have left my hair flat, greasy and weighed down. This duo by Nexxus has delivered on the promised results and I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend this line of hair care, it really works!

Leonor De Kalb, MO

Worked on my coarse thick hair

I have very coarse thick hair that is also very dry. I am always skeptical when it comes to products that say they can do this or that for your hair.The conditioner is not as thick as those you usually get from other brands (Pantene etc) so I did use a bit more than was recommended because of the thickness of my hair and left it in for 2 minutes more as well. The result was that my hair felt soft and was very easy to detangle after using.It does have a nice fragrance that is not overpowering and although I gave it 4 stars I don’t think I’ll be buying this. For 1/2 the price my Pantene does just about the same job.

Leola Cascade, MT

Love this conditioner!

This does everything right.Pros:✔Scent: butterscotch/good n plenty/sugar✔Spreadability: creamy, not too thick nor too thin✔Rinceability: rinses out completely and quickly✔Detangling ability: excellent✔Shine, body, bounce: excellent✔thickening ability: slight but definintely thereCons:none.I would definitely buy this and use it as my main everyday conditioner.

Millie Marengo, IN


I was using Pantene for a while. This isn’t any better and more than twice the price. But I didn’t hate it and the scent is fairly mild.

Virgie Costigan, ME

My other Nexxus conditioner is better….

I’ve been usingNexxus Hydralight Weightless Moisture Conditioner, 13.5 Ouncefor several months and love the way it conditions my hair, and decided to try the Youth Renewal formulation in the hopes that it would give me the same great conditioning while adding some brightness and shine to my faded blond hair. Unfortunately, this product just doesn’t seem to be right for me… I definitely don’t see any more shine or added color vibrancy, and honestly, my hair doesn’t feel as soft and smooth as with the Hydralight either. It does seem to have more volume, so if that’s your primary need, it may work for you, but as for me, I’ll be sticking with my Hydralight.

Helps Hair Behave

When I was younger I washed my hair daily because it was oily. Now I do so for body. This gentle conditioner is part of a line designed to address the challenges of “aging” hair including breakage, roughness, dryness, volume loss, unruliness, dullness and loss of vibrancy. It comes in an elegant, slim bottle that is easy to handle and attractive in appearance. The conditioner itself is creamy and has a sweet, fruity fragrance. I found the scent stronger than that of the companion shampoo but as my hair only retains noxious odors, it wasn’t an issue.It rinsed out easily. The conditioner did provide healthy moisture and volume without weight or greasiness.This is an effective conditioner, appropriate for daily use. Although I did not mind the aroma, it was a tad strong and might be objectionable to some. But otherwise, it does what it promises. Recommended.

Stacy Battlement Mesa, CO

It Works

Nexxus has quality products for hair. The Youth Renewal Conditioner smelled great. It felt good on my hair, but there was no slippery feel to it. Regardless of how it felt on my hair…my color treated hair had no frizzes and hair felt soft. Try it!

Cassie Albert City, IA

Excellent Conditioner

I think this is a far above average conditioner. I like everything about it, from how it leaves my hair looking and feeling, to the great “Nexxus” scent.The ingredient list has a few nice contents, such as coconut oil, argan oil, soybean oil, and keratin. The full list is: Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Fragrance (Parfum), Behentrimonium Chloride, Dipropylene Glycol, Potassium Chloride, Lactic Acid, Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Benzophenone-4, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Ubiquinone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Methylisothiazolinone, Hydrolyzed Pearl.The oils really add nice sheen to the hair, while not weighting it down, or making it oily or lifeless. It seems to work great on every hair type in my household, and a little goes a long way. I fiend myself using a little less of this than I normally do with other brands. That’s good because it is not inexpensive for a conditioner.I always smile at products which claim to rejuvenate hair or restore any properties to it. Hair is basically dead, so you cannot rejuvenate it. But you can make it look nice, and this product does that, and does it well.I would use this again.

Soft hair from a light conditioner? Yes please!

I have been coloring and processing my hair since 1843, or at least it feels that way. My poor hair is so dry and scraggy, I just have to keep cutting it shorter every year. I have tried just about every conditioner on the market, and generally I find that the products that condition well can be too heavy, while the light conditioners don’t do the trick for me.I’m not saying that this Nexxus conditioner actually rejuvenates any part of me, though that would be awesome, but I can tell you that it is light and doesn’t weigh my hair down, but it does make it soft, easy to style, and even bouncy.I know I sound like an old-school TV commercial, but I seriously love my hair now that I am using this every day. It’s soft and pretty!!! Can’t wait to see my hairdresser next week and see if she notices.BOTTOM LINE: Makes my hair soft and pretty.

Dayna Naper, NE

Very nice lightweight conditioner

I have this shampoo and conditioner set and I am very pleased with it. I find that this product is just a little more lightweight than I expected, but still like it. I have very thick hair shoulder length hair and look for a conditioner I can leave on a few extra minutes to soften my ends. This product is very good but comes up a bit light weight for my particular needs. However, I think this would be perfect for shorter hair, and work as a great everyday conditioner. It smells nice too – a delicate sweet scent. Worth a try for sure.

Shawna Centerville, SD

Definitely adds volume

This conditioner added volume as do all the Nexxus conditioners I’ve used. I could smell the coconut oil, one of the main ingredients. A little bit goes far so I was very pleased with this conditioner.

Kelli Bienville, LA

Not one of our favorite Nexxus products

I mentioned in my review of the Nexxus Youth Renewal Shampoo that while it was high quality product it happened to be too fragrant for our tastes. The same is mostly true for the Nexxus Youth Renewal Conditioner – but we both preferred the shampoo over the conditioner.Notes- The conditioner is pretty thin, so compared to other salon conditioners you seem to use more per wash.- It does rinse away quickly and thoroughly.- Leaves your hair feel soft but manageable – and very healthy.- The biggest drawback is that is too fragrant. Like the NExxus Youth Renewal Shampoo the conditioner has a very strong vanilla scent. So strong that you can smell in your hair throughout the entire day.Final Verdict – While it does seem a little thin compared to some of the other salon conditioners the biggest knock on the Nexxus Youth Renewal Shampoo is its powerful fragrance. However, if you are a fan of vanilla this might be the perfect conditioner for you!3 Stars

Adds moisture without weighing down your hair, lightly but nicely scented

I have been using the Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Conditioner and matching shampoo for several weeks now and I must say that they are both great. I have used the conditioner and shampoo together since day one so my review is based on using the matching set. I am not sure how well I would like either product without the other half.Both the shampoo and conditioner come in a 13.5 oz. bottle and is a slightly on the small size when you take the price into consideration. I am not sure that I like the type of bottle that they come in because sometimes it can be difficult to squeeze it out of the bottle, especially when the bottle is more than half empty.I agree that these are a salon quality shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo is thick and rich and has a light but very good scent to it. It lathers very well and it gets my hair squeaky clean without drying it out. Quite often shampoo will dry my scalp and cause itching but I haven’t had the problem with this yet.The conditioner is thick and rich and creamy. It smells great and adds a lot of moisture without weighing down your hair. The conditioner is a little thinner than the shampoo and it easier to get out of the bottle.These products claim to help reduce the signs of aging in your hair. I don’t believe that it’s some kind of time machine that will take you back ten years but I believe a very good quality shampoo and conditioner can make you feel pampered and maybe make your hair look its best. My experience with this shampoo and conditioner has been a good one and I would recommend them.

Melisa Germantown, KY


I’m not happy with the effect this product had on my hair. I have very long wavy hair that tangles easily. This conditioner (used along with the same type Nexus Shampoo) left my hair feeling rough and worst of all it was extremely difficult to pull a comb through it either wet or after it dried. It did leave my hair fuller but with lots of fly aways. I intend to experiment by leaving more of the product in after shampooing though I’m leery of that for fear it will weight my hair down and cause limpness.

Candy Ridgeway, MO


I don’t really have anything bad to say about the Nexxus Youth Renewal conditioner but I thought that it was just an average product and was expecting a whole lot more given the price and reputation of Nexxus. The reputation is that it is salon quality and price to go with it but I found it just to be an average performing conditioner.The scent was pleasant but very light. It was easy to use in the shower and spread but after using it, my hair was just so-so. It was full but a little frizzy and not very bouncy.I’m not terribly impressed. It’s not bad but for the price, I expected more.

Carmela Newsoms, VA

Results don’t justify the price

I have somewhat dry hair, and found Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Conditioner disappointing. It really didn’t do much for my hair at all. It’s a light conditioner and smells nice. The fragrance is not as strong as the matching shampoo. It didn’t weigh my hair down of make it feel greasy, which is good. As with the shampoo, it is not the Fountain of Youth though. My hair’s condition didn’t seem much different at all after using it. Considering it costs about 3x more than other quality conditioners, I would consider alternatives.

Rosalie Baxley, GA

Another Product That Works

I am usually quite lucky with any of the Nexxus Haircare products out there, but lately I have been a little disappointed with a few of them.Not so with this one. I was always under the impression that the reason why my hair is so dry and frizzy is because It is over-processed. But just in case I was wrong, I decided to try some of the products in this particular line (Youth Renewal) and what do you know? My hair actually looks better even after just one application! By the second and third application my hair looks much better -less frizz/fly-aways and a bit more shine. Almost like my hair was 25 again!This conditioner has the lightest fragrance that I have ever smelled, almost like it was fragrance-free and I really appreciate that.For even better results, may I recommend addingNexxus Youth Renewal Plump and Lift Blow Dry Spray, 7.5 Ounceto your regime.

Nelda Day, FL

very good

This conditioner worked quite well. I do not have the matching shampoo and used the conditioner with my everyday shampoo.Plus:
• creamy, even consistency that spread nicely throughout wet hair – much nicer than other conditioners I have used
• pleasant fragrance
• made my hair very soft and luxurious feeling when wet – surprisingly so
• no tangles! when combing wet hair
• the feeling of my hair when wet (smooth, no tangles) gave the impression that no other styling products would be needed to have nice soft, managed hair (but see TBD below)
• soft hair when dry, lightly shinyMinus:
• fragrance maybe a little too strong and lingering
• made my skin itchy, likely due to too much fragrance (bordering on “yellow perfume smell”)
• high price (but it was complimentary for me for Vine evaluation)Comments:
• once my hair dried, it sort of frizzed out – it seemed like the majority of my hair was smooth underlying with a fuzzy top surface (different from most conditioners). Use of a leave-in or styling product is likely still necessary
• not sure about “youth renewal” “rejuvenating” marketing claim – I did not feel my hair looked any younger or rejuvenated, whatever than meansOverall, decent but I probably will not repurchase since it is fairly high cost and there are other products just as good for less.

Brings Back the Shine and Has a Great Scent.

I was using the Nexxus Youth Shampoo and loved the scent (I originally described it as a grape/floralish but someone commented on my hair the other day and said it smells like cherries – either way, it’s a great scent!) and it did make my hair softer- less brittle and noticeably shinier.I’m now using the Nexxus Youth Conditioner and it’s a great compliment to the shampoo.After only a week my hair is noticeably less brittle (I stopped high-lighting coloring my hair little over a year ago but still, as I grow older my hair is becoming more brittle – still – older is wiser, right?)and much shinier.Highly recommend!

If it works for her, it works for me…

The missus was the first to try this product. Here’s what she had to say:”The first line of description on the back of this product said: “8 visible signs of aging hair: volume loss, breakage, less shine, roughness, dryness, brittleness, unruliness and loss of color vibrancy.” I had no idea that Nexxus had been following me around and decided to address every single issue that I have with my hair. Or at least, now I know I am not the only woman dealing with all these issues. Did this conditioner really help my hair look younger? My first impression after the first use was that it did an excellent job of restoring my hair. My hair looked fuller, was shinier, and much more controllable. Actually, I was quite amazed by the result. I decided to use this conditioner every day, and for the next 2 weeks, my initial impression never changed. I also love the fragrance and the bottle design. I would continue to use this product as well as other products from the same line.”Since she liked it so much I, too, gave the product a shot. From my man’s eye view, I have to say I liked the vanilla overtones of the fragrance, which is light and not overpowering. The conditioner itself works quite well and I found that a little goes a long way. If I had to say anything bad, I’d say that it is just a little too oily for my tastes, but then, I find most conditioners are. If I keep my usage to the usual two or three times a week, the Nexxus product works great. Personally, I’d give this product four stars, but my wife’s opinion pushes the overall rating higher than that, so we give it a full five stars.

Ruby Saluda, SC

Totally love this conditioner!

I’ve been using another brand of conditioner that seemed decent, but my hair has been rather flat, dry and lifeless lately. I decided to try this Nexxus conditioner because I’ve had good results with Nexxus products in the past and felt I needed to try something new for my blah hair. As the instructions said, I left the conditioner on for about 3 minutes in the shower after shampooing. When I rinsed it out, my hair felt soft, smooth and less dry. It also combed through a little easier, which is a big deal because my hair is past shoulder length and tangles easily. I dried my hair very quickly without spending much time on it and brushed it through. I didn’t use any other products on it. Several people immediately asked what I did with my hair because it was twice as thick as usual. I realized it had to be the conditioner because everything else was the same. The volume my hair has just from this conditioner is impressive. My hair feels hydrated, but not the least bit greasy, coated or weighed down like many other conditioners or thickening products I’ve used. I think anyone who needs extra volume in their hair or who has fine, thin, dry or hair that gets weighed down by heavier conditioners will love this product. I normally go for less expensive brands, but this one is well worth the price. 5 stars.

Sharron Knowlesville, NY

Great smelling, soft hair is the result

This conditioner, especially when paired withNexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Shampoo, 13.5 Ounce- that’s how I used it, at least) creates clean, soft, light feeling hair. Works for normal, fine well as very thick, fine hair…and even “ethnic” hair. Smells fantastic, too!The most pronounced results were on the head containing very thick, fine hair – the hair had a level of lightness/bounce to it, smelled great, and felt very soft. The ethnic hair ended up great, too – rather than feeling dry and coarse, it still felt like the hair was thick, but very soft and very smooth. (And the normal, short, “whatever” fine hair…it worked well, but not as obviously superior than other brands.)Highly recommended. Get that shampoo, too!
