Description by Nyassa: Nyassa conditioners provide intensive nourishment to the hair after washing. Two of the best known natural ingredients that helps healthy and luxuriant hair growth comes together in this nyassa hair conditioner, scented with a soothing floral, woodsy fragrance. Nyassa Hibiscus Conditioner contains Hibiscus extracts and Moroccan Argan oil that helps nourish damage hair. Hibiscus extract is an effective natural hair conditioner and an excellent moisturizer. It also has anti-dandruff properties. Argan oil hydrates hair and prevents roughness. It helps restore hair luster and shine and is very nourishing for hair growth.
This is my first time trying a Nyassa product.
Recently I finished my Giovanni root 66 max volume conditioner and thought of trying something else. But because of urgency I restricted myself to products available in India as delivery from abroad takes time.
I was going through CG approved conditioners (silicone free) online when I came through this one. It claims to have Argan oil and Shea butter which are most sought after emollients for dry hair.
I have used this 3 to 4 times. It is comparatively thicker than Giovanni one and doesn’t lather much like Giovanni’s.
I find it moisturizing and it make my hair soft and frizz free. However I did not like its fragrance much (reminds me of Agarbatti).
Do I find it more moisturizing than Giovanni ? YES
Does it weigh down your hair? Yes, a bit. But that helps for the curls to stay in place.
Does it makes detangling easy? I found it less slippery than Giovanni root 66 max volume so detangling was annoying.
This is a picture of my hair without using any styling product to show the moisturizing of this product. I applied coconut oil before shampoo, co-washed hair with Giovanni root 66 max volume and used Nyassa hibiscus conditioner as a rinse off conditioner.
Price: 600 Rs for 250 ml.
I hope this would help the confused curl souls in search of conditioners.

Ingredients analysis (done by Asha)
I am not too sure if the ingredient list on the product’s label is mentioned in the right order (I have my doubts) of their actual concentration because shampoo and conditioners always have the water as the first ingredient. If it is in the right order then it has very good amount of argan oil, shea butter and sweet almond oil. Conditioning agent is mentioned after the citric acid (pH adjuster) so that means it is in very low concentration which explains why it does not have much slip during wet detangling.
