    It depends entirely on the individual and what your hair is like to begin with. I've tried all sorts of conditioners, some very expensive, and have ended up going back to Herbal Essenses! Everyone reacts differently, so the best one is the one that works best for you. And the expensive ones aren't always better than the well known brands.
