Moisture Maniac Conditioner


TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner has surpassed all others to become my favorite conditioner. It is the only conditioner that I can use a co-wash, conditioning conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner. In fact, it is the only store bought rinse-out conditioner that I can leave in my hair, period. All other store-bought conditioners harden into a dry, flaky mess if left in my hair.

Whether I leave it in or rinse it out, I use this conditioner every time I wash my hair. It layers quite nicely with other conditioners, oils and butters when I do deep conditioning treatments. I can also use this conditioner to make an intensely moisturizing homeade spritz (equal parts distilled water, vegetable glycerin, and Moisture Maniac). Part of the effectiveness of Moisture Maniac is the Behentrimonium Methosulfate, which I have started seeking out as a highly desirable conditioning ingredient.

The 750 ml bottle of Moisture Maniac is regularly $22 but they are currently on sale at Ulta for $9.99! I just stocked up on 6 bottles today. (Don't judge me...it is a really good deal!)

Ingredients:
Aqua (Water), Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Acetamide MEA, Cetrimonium Bromide, Stearyl Alcohol, Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), DMDM Hydantoin, PPG 2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Pentaerythrityl Tetracaprylate/Tetracaprate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Silk Amino Acids, Orange 4 (CI 15510)

  1. Girl...I'm headed to Ulta TONIGHT to stock up! I LOVE this conditioner! If you get the Ulta sale papers in the mail, there is a $3.50 off a $10 purchase coupon. How about I have like three of those coupons!

  2. Oh man that sucks I missed out on that coupon! I had never been to Ulta before so I wasn't on their mailing list. But I am now!

  3. Wow! it's been so long since I've used this one - I've been so busy trying everything else, i forgot how good it is! Your intensive spritz sounds yummy - I'll have to try it!

  4. I've been thinking of trying this one out, but I just started using Herbal Essences Hello Hydration as a "combing conditioner" that I rinse out. I hate using silicones on my hair, but it's so hard to detangle without them, right?

  5. I used to use Moisture Maniac many moons ago, lol. I may have to repurchase this.
