Our review compares conditioners on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which conditioner they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 1,919 Australians for their feedback on the conditioner(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last six months.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

Herbal Essences has been operating in the haircare market since 1971, with the brand today operating under the Procter & Gamble banner. Offering a wide range of haircare products, from the traditional shampoo and conditioner through to hair masks for additional care, Herbal Essences’ range is focused on natural ingredients and sustainable practices. Its range of conditioners is split into different types, from repair and hydrating conditioners through to smooth and revitalise-focused options to help with your specific hair needs. There are also multiple scents available, with all conditioners available in 400ml bottles.
The primary purpose of conditioner is to reintroduce moisture and natural oils back into your hair that may have been removed by shampoo, or just lost naturally through wear and tear. Conditioner also helps strengthen your hair via a protective coating, which can also help prevent breakages, keeping your hair healthy and strong.
