*** About Asda's Essential Care Natural Extracts Moisturising Conditioner ***
I frequently purchase this particular conditioner in the coconut milk and tiare flower variety from my local Asda for around £1 for a 400 ml bottle, which is a very reasonable price in my view. At the moment this conditioner is on offer for only 50p a bottle, making it even more of a bargain!
This conditioner comes in a wide transparent bottle with a green screw on cap with a flip lid. This makes it easy to squeeze out a small amount of the product and means that the bottle does not get messy in the process.
As you may know from my previous reviews, I absolutely love coconut scented products and this conditioner is just divine in my view. The scent is quite strong and smells very sweet. I always find that after using this product in my hair that my hair is lightly scented with a lovely coco-nutty smell.
However, I find that the coconut extracts in the product overwhelm the scent of the tiare flower, as when I smell the conditioner, I can only really smell the coconut. Nonetheless, as I love coconut, I have no quibbles with this aspect.
*** Using the Conditioner ***
I always apply around a 50p sized amount of this conditioner to my hair and use it in exactly the same way in which all other regular conditioners should be used. I find that a 50p sized amount is more than sufficient in ensuring that my long hair is covered.
After drying my hair, this conditioner leaves my hair very soft and shiny. In my opinion, it works better than other more expensive branded conditioners that I have used and I am always impressed with how well this product works.
*** What about the Results? ***
According to the label, the conditioner is enriched with moisturising vitamins such as vitamin B5 and I am satisfied that the conditioner lives up to its claims of delivering soft, healthy looking hair. The bottle can be recycled, which is another great aspect of this product.
If you are on the lookout for an effective conditioner that won't consume the contents of your purse, then I would highly recommend this product to you. I think that overall this conditioner works brilliantly and makes my hair look really shiny, healthy and soft to the touch. For under £1 it is great value for money in my view and I think for its small price you really can't go far wrong with it.
Go on, give it a go!
Thanks for reading!
I have been pleasantly surprised by the Asda Essential Care Natural Extracts range for haircare. Over the years I have tried numerous shampoos and conditioners. I am not a particularly loyal shopper to any brand, and am generally happy to try most brands once. If they're no good, then I simply do not buy them again. Depending on what's on offer and how tight my shopping budget is, depends on how much I spend, and as the purse strings are very tight at the moment, I decided to give this product a try, priced at a very modest £1 for 400ml for an individual bottle on it's own, or four 400ml bottles from the range for £3.
The 'Natural Extracts Moisturising Coconut Milk and Tiare Flower Conditioner' is packaged in a plastic clear bottle with a green lid that secures firmly and opens to reveal a small hole for dispensing the conditioner. The bottle is a decent size (400ml) without being overbearing and too large for the shower, but one that lasts a good length of time. The bottle is curvey and feels nice to hold, and considering it is a relatively cheap product, it does not look cheap or out of place in a modest bathroom or shower room. As my bathroom is neuturally decorated, I find this bottle fits in well, and the 'asda essential care' label is so small on the bottle it is not noticeably a cheaper brand of conditioner and so I don't mind having it on display.
The conditioner itself is white and is a good consistency, being as thick as other brands and not too runny as is sometimes found with cheaper brands.
When using the conditioner, I found that I required the same amount of product as usual and that it was easy to smooth through the hair, detangling it as it went. The conditioner sat in the hair well, without being sticky or gloopy, just holding to the hair as a conditioner should. I found that the conditioner then rinsed out of the hair with ease, leaving it really well conditioned and leaving the shower not too slimey or slippery like some other conditioners which I hate and my husband hates even more!
By far the biggest asset this conditioner has, is it's scent. The coconut smell is gorgeous (if you like that scent) and as you condition your hair it fills the bathroom or shower room with a soft aroma of coconut that is heaven. I don't find the smell overpowering, and love the smell of my hair when using the conditioner. I find that my hair holds the scent lightly which I love and my bathroom smells devine for a good couple of hours after conditioning with this product.
According to the detail on the bottle, the conditioner is specially formulated with natural extract of coconut milk, tiare flower and vitamin B5 to help provide the hair with essential moisture. The conditioner also claims to leave hair with a smooth and healthy looking finish. My experience of using this product is that I do agree with the above statements and have certainly found my hair to be smooth and healthy looking.
The product is best used in combination with the Asda Natural Extracts Coconut and Tiare Flower Shampoo which I have also reviewed.
To conclude, I recommend this product as being an excellent value for money product and definitely worth a try. What's more, Asda have a 'try me, love me' policy which allows you to try the product and if you're not 100% happy with the product they will refund and replace. A risk free purchase - got to be worth a try!!
This conditioner is the one in my bathroom at the moment, brought from asda for less than a pound it is realy good value for money.
The conditioner is in a clear bottle so you can easily see when it is running low and is very thick in concistency, the bottle has a flip lid which has quite a large hole to dispense the conditioner through so there are no problems getting it out of the bottle untill you get near the bottom when you will have to sand it on its lid for a few minutes wholst you wash your hair to allow the thick conditioner to make its way to the top of the bottle.
It smells beautiful, just like real coconut, the smell does last on your hair for a few hours but isnt realy noticable after that.
It is easy to apply and because it is so thick it sticks to your hair but does require a lot of rinsing off.
It has left my hair silky smooth with no dry ends and doesnt make my roots too greasy either.
People usually assume that expensive conditioners (or at least those that aren't a supermarket's own brand) are the only products you should bother with using. However, Asda's conditioner is cheap (I got it for about 80p at mmy local ASDA), keeps hair clean for a longer time, and makes your hair feel really soft. I've also found it makes it much easier to do different things with my hair - putting it up, trying different styles. This doesn't leave your hairy feeling greasy!
I usually enjoy Asda own brand hair products as they are cheap, smell nice and leave my hair feeling shiny and fresh. However I can't say the same for the coconut conditioner. The smell of coconut is too overpowering for me. Also, I have dry hair so I thought this product would be ideal for my waist length hair, however, my hair is also quite fine. Even though I only applied the conditioner to the ends of my hair, when my hair was rinsed and dried it felt very greasy and heavy, and after a day looked awful. I can only think that it must have somehow got into the rest of my hair while I was rinsing it. I am still looking for a decent conditioner, the Asda coconut conditioner however isn't it and won't be for you if like me you have a lot of dry, fine hair.
I love conditioner on my hair and so i went to Asda and found the coconut conditioner for permed, coloured hair. As my hair has just been coloured. Alot of conditioners irritate my skin when you rinse them off and it can also irritate my hair also. But this one didn't irritate my skin or hair which i was glad about. It is a very good conditioner, i didn't kmnow if it would be any good being a shop's own brand. But i was surprised when i saw how good it was. It is white in colour and leaves your hair feeling soft and more managable. This conditioner is enriched with coconut oil which helps the condition of the hair and leaves a lovely smell. It cost me only 99p which is very cheap i thought, but is value for money.
