Leave-in conditioners are a fantastic way to get extra moisture into your hair. But it is important to choose the right leave-in conditioner for your hair type and your level of damage.
So how does Dr. Miracle leave-in conditioner measure up?
What Is It?
Dr. Miracle is a company aimed towards providing hair care products to those with ethnic hair. This leave-in conditioner works to both cleanse and condition, keeping hair clean and soft.
It helps to lock in moisture, as well as providing essential vitamins like Vitamin A, E, and C for your hair. This will make your hair softer, shinier, more manageable, and will help make it less prone to damage.
What’s in It?
The ingredients used in Dr. Miracle’s leave-in conditioner include:
Water, Sorbitol, Dicetyldimonium Chloride, Propylene Glycol, Honey, Polyquaternium-37, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-40 Castor Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Bulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Menthol, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Pyridoxine HCl, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Silk, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Milk Protein, Biotin, Sodium PCA, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance, Benzyl Benzoate, Citral, Citronellol, Limonene, Geraniol, Hexy Cinnamal, Linalool, and Yellow 5.
Aloe Vera contains Vitamins A, C, and E, making it fantastic for your hair. Not only does it provide nutrients to your hair, but it also helps to promote healthy cell growth for healthier hair follicles.
That means your hair doesn’t just look or feel healthier, but actually is healthier, making it stronger and less prone to damage.
Honey is another fantastic ingredient for your hair health. That is because it is an emollient, which smooths hair follicles and adds shine.
It also has humectant properties, allowing water molecules to more easily bond with your hair. That means more moisture locked in.
Coconut oil is another natural ingredient that should be used in all hair care products. This is because coconut oil reduces damage to your hair done by styling and product use.
Even while using the leave-in conditioner, it is helpful to apply plain coconut oil to your hair in between for extra protection.
Jojoba is also rich in vitamins, like Aloe Vera, but also contains vitamin B, copper and zinc.
Jojoba is known for making hair stronger and more durable, but also can potentially help hair grow as well.
Olive oil is one of the oldest remedies for shinier, smoother hair, with tried-and-true results. It also can make your hair softer and more resilient.
When you look at the list of ingredients, it is a pretty good mix of natural ingredients and chemicals. If you are looking for a chemical free product, this is not going to work for you.
However, even though there is PEG and dyes in the conditioner, overall, there is a lot of great natural ingredients utilized in here. That means this is worth trying, especially for the price.
Who Is It For?
Dr. Miracle is marketed for those with ethnic hair, who are often overlooked in the hair product industry. They say their products are perfect for natural hair, as well as relaxed hair, braided hair, and even weaves.
While for those with ethnic hair, it is not exclusive to anyone. If you have very thick, curly hair, you may also want to try this, regardless of your ethnic background.
Anyone is free to purchase the Dr. Miracle products, but you may not see the results you are expecting if you have Caucasian hair. Especially if your hair is thin or fine.
How Do You Use It?
This specific leave-in conditioner is designed to be used on wet hair. That means you should shower first, making sure your hair is fulling wet.
You can then wring out some of the water so it is still wet, but not soaked and dripping too much. This will prevent the leave-in conditioner from being too runny and dripping off your hair.
Towel dry and apply a thin layer from root to the end of your hair and work it through. Then let your hair air dry and do not rinse out the conditioner from your hair.

What Are People Saying?
The vast majority of people say that occasionally using this product has made their hair softer, shinier, and overall healthier. It also has helped provide extra moisture and worked as a detangler as well.
The majority of reviewers also say they use it once a week or less, while there are some that used it twice a week.
There are a few people who used it every day, or more than twice a week, but those people did not see any significant difference in their results compared to others.
The more frequent users also were more likely to complain of issues like irritation of the scalp. Almost everyone, however, did complain about how the conditioner is too watery and needs to be thicker to be more efficiently applied to your hair.
Dr. Miracle’s leave-in conditioner is ideal for those who have ethnic hair and want more moisture and shine.
There are lots of ingredients we really love in this, including aloe and coconut oil, but there are also other ingredients like PEG-40 that are not ideal for hair.
This means that if you have a very sensitive scalp and hair, you may have irritation and issues with the product.
But the vast majority of people who use this product once a week or less, have no issues with it.
Considering the price of the conditioner, it is definitely worth trying out if you need something new.
