Can it be used as a conditioner replacement?
The shampoo I'm currently using is very moisturizing (and solid), but it tangles up my thick, curly hair like crazy. I normally use a silicone-free liquid conditioner to add an extra moisture-punch and detangle, but could this be used as a replacement? i.e. wash my hair, rinse, get out, spray with black vanilla, comb, wa-la?

on Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner
I would say no...this is nicely conditioning for every day but not deep enough to properly condition one's hair after washing it, in my opinion. I use the Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie (here on Sephora's site they sell a Black Vanilla Conditioner, but Carol's Daughter doesn't sell that in her stores) and then I use this leave-in to help with detangling and blow-drying my hair. Then I use this leave-in on a daily basis to refresh my hair and give it a little weightless moisture.

We haven't found that it can replace a conditioner, but our daughter has really tight spiral curls when dry and loose curls when wet. Her hair dries out really easy, so we use heavy duty leave-in conditioners because we want to weigh it down a bit (this Black Vanilla leave-in conditioner does NOT seem to weigh her hair down at all, by the way). We just add this on top of the hair milk as a way to add a bit of shine and hold in a bit more moisture.

It is not moisturizing enough for dry hair.

No, you still need your regular conditioner. This is just an add on product.

YES!!! Tried it on a girlfriend with exactly the same dillema & it worked like magic. Plus, you can use it throughout the day , if you get frizzy action, w/out weighing down your hair or making it greasy. It also smells vaguely of some marvelous pastry. She now uses it everyday, just like me, and I have completely different hair. I can't say enough good things about this product & I've never answered a survey question on a website before. That's a testimonial, ladies. Tee hee! Seriously...great stuff.

Yes. I like to use this as an extra conditioning product. I use it when I comb my hair because it makes it easier and after washing even when I do not use another conditioner.

I use a light conditioner in the shower plus the leave-in carol's daughter as an additional detangling treatment. Haven't tried it without conditioner, but I think it might be too light.
Yes it can. I use it on my 12 month old, and it does wonders. I shampoo and spay the black vanillia, and go. I also use it as a daily conditioning.
I hope this works for you.
It does nothing for conditioning. It really is just a great smelling product and it does help with frizzies abit but that the extent of it.
For me, the spray made my hair tangle more, and that was with a conditioner. I wouldn't recommend it as a replacement for a conditioner based on my experience with it, but you might look at the other Carol's Daughter products--they are affordable and good quality.

No you can't rely on this product to be a good conditioner or a detangler. I did order the black vanilla shampoo and I like it a lot. The leave in has a nice smell and that's about it. Aussie's 3 minute miracle or Nexus Humectrus should work for you. I reccomend Ojon as well. If you have any tips for naturally tight curly hair feel free to pass them my way.
