“ Brand: A'Kin / Leave-in / Texture: Cream / Type: Moisturiser / What it does: Moisturizes, „
I have long hair which is straight with dry ends and a greasier scalp. I wash my hair every other day but was finding my ends were getting dry in between washes and regular conditioner didn't seem to help.
I also went on an SLS-free, paraben-free, not tested on animals stint and when buying new products make sure these requirements are met - this is where A'kin products really do it for me. When looking through a website selling A'kin products I decided to try a leave in conditioner instead and see if this made a difference to my ends.
I had to order this online as I've not seen it in any shops near me, but managed to get it on FeelUnique with free delivery and for around £8. This is a LOT more than I usually spend on any hair products but I feel it's been great value for money as it lasts for ages and I don't need much each time I use it.
I love the smell of this conditioner. It smells natural and fresh, not chemically at all. It doesn't smell as strongly as I expected actually but for me this was a benefit. Some people might prefer a stronger smell. My husband likes the smell of it when he's sniffing my hair but no-one else has ever mentioned the smell and I can't smell it walking around day-to-day.
When using this conditioner I wasn't sure if it would be too much for my hair as it's not coarse or really thick - but it was perfect. Not too heavy and didn't weight my hair down at all. My hair felt conditioned and soft between washes, absolutely perfect!!
This is my go-to conditioner when my hair needs a bit of extra help. I don't use this product every time I wash my hair - I have a regular conditioner for that. This leave-in conditioner is perfect for those times when your hair gets frizzy because of humidity - e.g. at the beach or in a nightclub.
I tend to squeeze some of the conditioner into a small bottle that I carry around in my handbag for those emergency moments. I've tried a lot of products that claim to ease frizz, but many of them made my hair look even drier. This conditioner is light and effective, and removes all of the frizz without weighing it down.
The bonus is that this product is made from natural ingredients, and contains no parabens or SLS. The downside is that it can be difficult to find in the shops, although it is widely available on the internet. Highly recommended for naturally coarse, dry or frizzy hair.
Perfect for dry or chemically treated hair that needs added moisture /
