Alberto Balsam Mandarin Conditioner
Advantages: NICE CONDITIONER
I have recently tried out the Alberto Balsam Conditioner with Mandarin and this is my review.
I bought the conditioner from my local Tesco supermarket and it was on a special offer price of only £1.02 which I thought was quite good value for money. Even when the conditioner is not on a special offer it is usually a good value price. I have seen it for sale in my local chemist for around £1.20 which is still good value.
The bottle is made of plastic and can be recycled which is good for me cos I like to do my bit for the environment. The bottle is a good size and is 400ml which I thought made the bottle of conditioner quite good value for money and I was pleased that it would last me quite a long time with it being a good size of bottle. There is a nice label on the bottle which has a picture of orange or mandarin on it and I think it looks like a nice product and it caught my eye when I was in the supermarket.
When it came to using the conditioner I only had to use a small amount about the size of a matchbox but I do not have very long or thick hair and you would probably need to use a bit more if you have long hair. I just put the conditioner onto my wet hair and rubbed it through my hair and left it for a couple of minutes then I rinsed it off. I thought that the conditioner rinsed of quite easily and it did not feel heavy on my hair or sticky and this can be a problem I have found with cheap conditioners that I have used before.
The smell of the conditioner was lovely and I thought it was a really nice fresh scent to use on my hair. The smell was quite subtle and not overpowering in the way that some orange scents can be and it was definitely a nice fresh fruity scent and I really liked it. I would like to have a scented shower gel or body wash in the same smell because it was so pleasant to use on my hair I think it would be nice to use in the bath or shower to.
I thought that the conditioner made my hair tangle free and I liked how soft this conditioner made my hair feel. I thought that there was a nice shine left on my hair after using the conditioner although I do think any conditioner I use on my hair leaves a nice shine and leaves my hair feeling very soft.
This Mandarin Conditioner is supposed to be a limited edition scent but I have seen it in the shops since last year so I am not sure if this is true. It contains vitamins to help strengthen the hair but I have not noticed much difference after I have used this conditioner but I was pleased with the shiny look this conditioner gave to my dyed hair which can look a bit dry some times.
There is an Alberto Balsam Mandarin shampoo that matches this conditioner and I have also tried it out and thought it was also a good product. I like to use matching shampoo and conditioners and I have liked all of the products from the Alberto Balsam range that I have tried so far.
I would suggest giving the conditioner a try out and I will be buying it again cos it was so nice to use and I liked the smell so much that I would probably pay the full price for it. I thought it gave my hair a nice shine and made it feel nice and soft and I really liked using it on my hair.
Summary: GOOD HAIR CONDITIONER
