Johnson's No More Tangles Detangling Spray review

Doing Drugstore: Johnson's No More Tangles Detangling Spray


Here's an oldie but goodie: Johnson's No More Tangles. I remember reading, years ago, that Jennifer Aniston used this — and so did I. Its lovely, distinct smell was the only reason I let my mom comb my matted, chlorine-damaged hair after Summer camp as a kid.

Unfortunately, despite claiming on the back to be the "same product, new package," a fellow former devotee and I both think the scent is different. Not unpleasant, but different (it dissipates after a few minutes). If you're in a bind or hate the smell, you can mix equal parts conditioner and water in a spray bottle for similar results, but you won't get the No More Tears formula (plus, your conditioner probably costs more than $3.69 anyway). The official instructions for No More Tangles actually say to skip conditioner when using it, which I wouldn't recommend unless you have very fine or oily hair. When sprayed on dry hair, No More Tangles is kind of sticky at first, and then hair is softer and easier to comb. As much as I miss the scent I remember, I'm still a fan — even if I'm just being nostalgic.

i used to lifeguard so i ALWAYS had a bottle of no more tangles in my bag since chlorine does a number on your hair - but i haven't thought about the stuff in ages. new packaging is always a way to attract new customers - but if the scent is different - and maybe not as nice -then well - that doesn't really bode well for the product right? it'll alienate us who were always customers

I probably should use this on my hair, I just colored it and can barely get a comb through my hair right now.

I've tried this, but I prefer Dove's conditioning/detangling spray.

I don't recall using this as a kid but I started using it a few years ago and I love it. Instead of shampoo AND conditioner, I just shampoo and use this afterward.

i stopped using this maybe two years ago? i have really thick curly hair therefore lots of tangles! now i don't comb my hair even when it is wet. i run my fingers through it after conditioning and voila!
