Bee Mine Balanced Conditioner - Product Review

This is part 2 of the 3 product review I will be giving on the Bee Mine product line.  Click here for the first review on the Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter.  After shampooing my hair, I generously applied the conditioner in 6 sections, finger detangled and my hair felt like a doll’s hair.  It was THAT soft that it didn’t feel real.  I experience a lot of tangles and knots because of my 3c curl pattern, so detangling is always an issue.  As such, slip is important.  I was thoroughly impressed to say the least.  I rinsed out the creamy mixture after about 5 minutes as instructed.  Not only did I get just enough slip, but ultimate softness as well.  Win Win!
I used the conditioner a total of 4 times thus far, three times on freshly shampooed hair and once as a co wash conditioner.  Because of the price tag, I would not suggest using this as a co wash conditioner.  Personally it makes good financial sense to use a less expensive conditioner when co-washing.
Product Description
This nourishing conditioner is enriched with pro-vitamins, extracts & proteins that compact the cuticle layer of the hair resulting in nourished hair that isn't weighed down.  It will leave your hair silky, soft, bouncy and more manageable.
Directions:  After shampooing apply a liberal amount to hair from root to tip ensuring that ends are covered. For normal hair leave on for 3-5 minutes.  For damaged hair or deep conditioning use a heat cap, hood dryer or warm towel for 15-30 minutes.  Rinse out thoroughly with water style as usual. Can be used daily.  For best results use with Bee Mine Nourishing Shampoo.
Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice, Lavendula angustifolia (Organic Lavender) Distillate, Anthemis nobilis (Organic Roman Chamomile) Distillate, Cetearyl Alcohol(vegetable-based emulsifier), Ricinus communis (Castor Seed) Oil, Avocado Butter, Avocado Oil,  Stearalkonium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, d-Calcium Pantothenate (Panthenol Vitamin B5), Panthenol (Vitamin B Complex), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Rosa mosqueta (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Salix nigra (Organic Black Willow Bark) Extract, Fragrance.
Scent – avocado cream 8 oz bottle reminds me of a body butter.  Like I always say, if my nose likes it, I am more drawn to it.  I am one of those consumers who will make a purchase largely based on scent.

Silicone - Free / SLS - Free / Paraben - Free
If you are a natural who is not fond of cones then you have no worries with this product.  The paraben free sells it for me.  Parabens are one of the reasons I switched from my previous staple conditioner. 
Rating:  4 out of 5 curls
