“ Brand: H20 / Type: Body Lotion / Subcategory: Conditioner „
When staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge (I have wrote a Dooyoo review if interested), the H20 range where the obligatory hotel toiletries left in our room daily. Those small 37ml bottles are usually ignored by me as I almost always bring my own toilitries with me on holiday. On previous trips, the toiletries left where not of the H20 range and had very mixed results.
I rarely use the hotel toiletries but after opening these little cuties and having a sniff, I was curious. I decided that anything that could smell so lovely might not be half-bad. It had such a clean and fresh fragrance, I thought it was worth giving a go for that alone. I had, at the time, just beyond shoulder length hair and the back of the bottle boasted it was lightweight, perfect for my thick hair. It promised to maintain hairs strength, shine and manageability - a task when on holiday!
I went with the shampoo first (I have wrote a Dooyoo review for that too) and followed it with the conditioner. The bottle is quite a hard plastic so it took some persuading to release its contents. I never use much conditioner, and this was no exception, a little really does go a long way with this product. It went through my hair easily and was not clumpy or oily like some conditioners can be. I have easy-greased hair so I always avoid using conditioner on the roots, only the length and tips.
It washed out quickly and nicely and after towel drying, the brush went through around 95% tangle free, a must if using conditioners! I was very impressed so far. After drying my hair I noticed it was extremely soft and manageable, exactly what it had said on the bottle. These things however, can only really be proven after several washes, so I continued using the product extensively throughout our two-week stay.
Conditioner is great to use neat on hair when going swimming as it protects against the chlorine damage so I used this when heading out to the water parks or hotel pool. It kept my hair feeling fresh and tangle free and when it came to rinsing, washed beautifully and seemingly undamaged by the chlorine and Florida sunshine.
Because I was using the conditioner more than the shampoo, I went through around 3 37ml bottles in the two weeks which I thought was quite good.
I did not realize until I got home that this is actually quite an expensive, costing $16 for 250ml, around £10 or so depending on the exchange rate. I would NEVER spend so much on a hair product at home so was very surprised to see it being offered free. Suffice to say, I did bring a few bottles back as it is on sale at the hotel gift shop and at several locations at Downtown Disney. The only shame is that I have yet to find a UK supplier so must have to journey back across the Atlantic to stock up - not that I would mind taking a few more Disney trips!
