VO5 Silky Smooth Elixer Conditioner
Advantages: Smooths, softens and makes hair shiny without the need for grease!
Disadvantages: Doesn't tame frizz at all in my case!
When I buy a shampoo I almost always choose the matching conditioner to go with it. I don't like mixing and matching hair products too much and sure don't like too many smells on my head!
I chose the shampoo because it promised luminous shine for my stressed out hair and to help tame my wayward frizz which sadly I have always suffered from big time!
I always use conditioner after shampooing otherwise I just feel like I haven't cleansed my hair properly and finished the job off right that is in hand lol!
White coloured plastic bottle which is 300ml size and has a flip-top opening to the top of it concealing a small hole. On the front of the bottle I'm told that it is VO5 Silky Smooth Elixir 'Infused with 5 vital oils', Luminous Shine Shampoo, 'For dull, frizzy, heat damaged hair' and the size (as I have stated already) is on the bottom of the bottle. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and directions for use are given and ingredients and contact details for Alberto-Culver UK are stated (the manufacturer of the product). It's a nice looking sleek bottle and of course it's easy enough to open and use and it''s informative enough too!

Me Using It:
Well all you do with this is to use about the size of a 10p coin of the white blobby mixture over and into your hair after thoroughly washing and rinsing it first of course! It distributes really easily as it isn't stiff or anything and it absorbs into the hair really easily. I have no problems coating my hair with this at all and I find I don't need loads of it at all!
It has a sea fresh, unisex sort of aroma to it which is pleasant, fresh and rather natural and you leave it on your hair for any amount of time you wish to before making sure it really is rinsed out well.
Not only does this leave a lovely fragrance on your hair for a good few hours, I find this to really make my hair feel silky smooth and strong and the one thing I can vouch for is that it really does give really glossy, shiny and strong looking hair, so much so people have asked me what I am using on my hair to make it look so healthy!
However the drawback with this is that I find that it does nothing for my frizz at all meaning I still have to use heavy duty hair products after using this and with styling to get it to behave itself, however like I say I do believe that this makes my hair look satin smooth!
I do like this conditioner though apart from it not helping my frizz. It's a light conditioner that is easy to rinse out and perfect for every day usage but I just don't think it's a solution to frizz cos it really isn't....sadly!
This costs about £2.29 a bottle in all good chemists and supermarkets etc.
Summary: A nice enough every-day conditioner this is!
