Why read review after review when you can just read one? We’ve combed the web to get the verdict on Tresemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. Read on to see how it works on 3a – 4c hair.
Tresemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner has long been a staple in naturalista cabinets everywhere. Known for its super slip, affordable price and 25 ounce bottle, many raved about it, especially prior to 2013 when after being bought by Unilever the conditioner underwent a formula change, leaving many not so happy about the new consistency, among other things. Two years later, feelings about the conditioner are somewhat mixed but lean more toward the positive than negative.
If you never used the old formula, you’ll most likely be pleased with this conditioner. If you did use the old formula, chances are, like others, you’ll miss how good of a detangler this product used to be. Comparisons aside, this conditioner makes for a good cow ash and detangler. Those with hair that fall in the 3 type range consider it a good detangler, while those in the 4 range find it a bit lacking.
- It’s a big bottle with a small price! You can find a 25 ounce bottle at most drug stores for about $5.
- It’s silicone free
- It has a relatively thick consistency

What 3a – 4a Users Say
Vlogger Ashkins Curls was previously a fan of this conditioner. She previously considered it one of the best conditioners she used on her hair until the formula change in 2013. She admitted the ingredients had improved but it was no longer a great detangler and had to use more product than before.
On the other hand, vlogger Buttercurls™, who prefers that the new formula isn’t as runny as the old one, said the slip is “amazing.” She explains, “It detangled my curls. …It was also good as a co-wash and as a deep conditioner… my curls were soft and moisturized.” “It’s not better than the old formula but it works for me.”
“I have VERY damaged 3b hair and TREsemme conditioner silicone free is the bomb! …I use it to wash my hair; I use it as a leave in and I use it as a conditioner. The best part is that TREsemme SILCONE FREE is affordable.” [sic]
“I have very thick, coarse, very curly hair, in the 3C range and was looking for an affordable conditioner that i could condition and co-wash with. I had a great experience with this one and it left my hair feeling very moisturized and soft. This conditioner has a pleasantly fresh scent, a thick consistency, and provides LOTS of slip, which is great for detangling curly hair.”
– Anabel S.
“Yes to this product!! I have curly/coily, 3C hair and need a really good detangling conditioner I can use in the shower, and this fits the bill. It has great slip and the texture is light and easy to work with. An added bonus is that I’ve also been using this as a leave-in conditioner, with great results. It leaves my hair very shiny without frizz (that is a miracle in itself, particularly in summer humidity).”
What 4b – 4c Users Say
Vlogger NaturalMe4C, found Tresemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner “okay.” She explains that it doesn’t have crazy slip; as a detangler it felt like I was putting nothing on my hair. Like other bloggers she too misses the previous formula and had been able to use use it for multiple purposes.
Emprezz Abena gave the product a thumbs up for cowashing, saying it leaves her feeling moisturized. She, like others, said it wasn’t great for detangling, but she added some coconut oil to it and it detangled just fine.
I added coconut coconut oil to it and it was amazing! That’s how I’ll be using it for detangling.
