Hello beauties, Welcome to my blog. Today I will share my experience on the Re’equil babassu hair conditioner. Over the years, I have been trying out different hair conditioners like L’oreal, Dove, and Tresseme, and whatnot but have yet to find my holy grail product. Since Re’equil has a good reputation and being a fan of their sunscreen, I decided to try out their range of conditioners which is the Murumuru conditioner is targeted towards high porosity hair while their Babassu conditioner is designed with those with low porosity hair in mind. But before we begin the Re’equil Babassu hair conditioner review, let me tell you a little bit about ‘ The Porosity Test’ and Why it is important to know your hair type.
Do this test on shampooed and dried hair with no products applied. Hair products like hair masks, conditioners, and gels/mousse affect the results. Now take a glass of water and drop a single strand of hair into it. Wait for a few minutes. Check where the hair is resting now – Top, Middle, or Bottom.
If your hair is at the top, you have low porosity hair. Since the cuticles are so close to each other it is difficult to moisturise this type of hair. The products just sit on top. This type of hair needs more moisture than protein. The Re’equil Babassu conditioner is suited to low porosity hair.
If your hair sinks to the bottom, you have high porosity hair. This means moisture enters the hair easily but have trouble locking the moisture in. This type of hair is prone to dryness, and breakage. Try using leave-in conditioner and deep conditioning hair masks, your hair will thank you. The Re’equil Murumuru conditioner is best suited to high porosity hair.
Now that you know your hair type, it is easy to find products that suit your hair. Let us move on to the review with further delay.
Frizzy and low-porosity hair need adequate hydration. They need conditioners that are lightweight, protein free, does not evaporate and lock in moisture for each hair strand. Formulated with Babassu Oil sourced from the amazon rainforest, this conditioner penetrates closely knit hair cuticles and helps retain essential moisture. It makes hair appear less frizzy and more hydrated. The conditioner has a pink undertone, a mild fragrance and feels like butter when applied.

KEY INGREDIENT BENEFITS
The most notable ingredients that I found in this hair conditioner are as follows,
ORGANIC BABASSU OIL
Organic Babassu Oil is super lightweight and nonoily. It deeply conditions and nourishes the hair, helps control frizz, enhances shine, and promotes a healthy scalp. This oil protects your hair against heat damage and helps strengthen the hair strands.
Erythritol has conditioning properties that help improve hair combability, which means the comb easily slides through your hair whether it is wet or dry. It leaves the hair much smoother and frizz free.
Brassicamidopropyl Dimethylamine is made from brassica oil and it is used in hair products to condition, detangle, and improve hair texture as well as shine.
150ml – ₹395 | Sale price – ₹295
There is a subtle fragrance in this conditioner which did not irritate my sensitive nose nor trigger migraine. So I would recommend it to others too.
HAIR TYPE – WAVY | Medium Porosity
The Re’equil hair conditioner has a thick and creamy feel to it so I do need a lot less product actually. This is great since I have hip length hair. The conditioner does have that slippery feel and once applied, I can comb through the hair easily. I usually leave the conditioner on for about 5 minutes and then rinse off. I do let my hair air dry naturally.
This product does leave my hair soft, It smoothens the hair cuticles and adds shine which makes my hair look healthy. Does it weigh down my hair? No, it does not. Coming to treating frizz, I am not so pleased with the results. My hair is not as tangle free as I hoped it would be. But once combined my routine with the Dove Hair Strengthening Mask, my hair has been behaving a lot better. It has improved my hair texture and I find myself unconsciously touching and playing with my hair a lot.
I just want to share with you that I recently started using the Pantene Lively clean shampoo once every 3 weeks to remove any product buildup that could be causing my hair to be, frizzy and prone to breakage.
I am in search of a good leave-in conditioner since I believe it could help my hair stay soft and tangle free for longer. Do not worry dear, I will keep updating you guys as I go through my hair care journey.
