West’s Word
There really isn’t much to say when comparing these two conditioners. They perform similarly, leaving the hair soft and well-conditioned, and the main ingredient of both happens to be chocolate-based.  BASK’s conditioner does have a food-like quality chocolate which I love, but Kizuri’s conditioner is less messy in the application and rinsing process and also happens to contain an identifiable ceramide.

Because of the similarity in performance and the clean-up/messy factor…

SAVE wins!

Girl, you stay hooking me up with new finds…I LOVE LOVE LOVE anything vanilla scented. I just ran out of BASK YAM honey nectar so I will order this and try it out.

Question: I generally mixed the BASK w/my reg conditioner when doing the perm application for flat ironing. Can the save product be used the same way?

Great review, another conditioner that this made me think of is the Pura Body Naturals Chocolate Hair Smoothie which I love. But I plan on giving these 2 a try as well specially the BASK because I tried their YAM honey nectar after reading your review and loved it, probably will get them around Black Friday or PJ season as you call it… and yes, I know it’s only May lol.
