For this Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Replenishing Conditioner review, I have been using the conditioner for the past week. I purchased the 11 FL OZ bottle for $10.93, directly from the Aubrey website.
A Natural Alternative to
Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Replenishing Conditioner for dry frizzy hair is a natural alternative to conditioners containing artificial fragrances, colors, preservatives, and other synthetic ingredients.
I previously liked Herbal Essences Conditioner, which has a score of 4, moderate hazard, in the Skin Deep Database. Most recently, I used Pantene Pro-V Conditioner, which has a score of 5, moderate hazard, in Skin Deep. Both contain artificial fragrance, which poses a high health hazard. They both also contain methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, and benzyl alcohol, which pose moderate health concerns. The only thing “herbal” about Herbal Essences conditioner is early-purple orchid flower extract and coconut fruit extract.

Dry, frizzy flyaways got you frazzled?
Instant moisture-replenishing conditioner and detangler puts your hair at ease, restoring manageability and sheen with rich plant butters. Leaves lengths silky-smooth and softens and defines curls without weighing down the hair. Also recommended for relaxed and natural styles.
Shake well before using. After shampooing, apply to damp hair and work through, concentrating on the ends. Leave on for 1 or 2 minutes, then rinse.
For deep conditioning: Apply to dry hair and distribute from scalp to ends. Leave on for 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition hair as usual.
The Aubrey Organics conditioner has a think consistency. It is a shiny off-white color.
Th conditioner has a strong spicy smell, which lingers as long as my hair is wet. At first I thought it smelled like cloves, until I read the back and realized it contains allspice. I think instead of “Island Naturals” a better name for this scent would be “Holiday Spice.” This version of the conditioner is a good option for men.
The Island Naturals conditioner does leave my hair soft and easy to brush, without tangles. I was hoping it would help with my dandruff, and over multiple uses it does seem to be moisturizing my scalp.
Rating (4 / 5)
Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Replenishing Conditioner for dry frizzy hair earns its first star for containing natural ingredients.
It earns half a star for being packaged in a recyclable plastic bottle.
The Island Naturals conditioner earns another star for being effective. It moisturizes and detangles hair without weighing it down.
Aubrey Organics conditioner earns another star for being a good value for your money, since it is effective and not too much more expensive than other natural conditioners.
The Island Naturals conditioner earns half a star for being somewhat a pleasure to use. I like the thick consistency and the way it feels when applied to my hair. I do not care for the allspice scent that sticks around until my hair is completely dry.
Overall, Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Conditioner earns 4 out of 5 stars and is recommended as an effective moisturizing conditioner, if you like the scent of allspice.
