      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A lovely conditioner to match a lovely shampoo

      I bought this from Asda as the name of the product would suggest along with the shampoo of the same variety when they were on a 2 for £2 offer.

      The bottle for the product is see through and the shampoo is bright pink whereas the conditioner is a pearly pale pink in colour and I think the two of them look lovely in the bathroom as I love pink. The bottles have a green flip top lid and I personally think these were Asdas copy of Herbal Essences as these first appeared in Asda before Herbal Essences changed their bottles and the bottles did look very similar.

      To use the product I personally use the shampoo first and then flip open this bottle to get to the product inside. The smell of the product is absolutely delicious in my opinions very fruity and sweet with the scent of cherries. The product has quite a thick consistency but a gentle squeeze of the bottle gets it out easily and then you simply spread the product through your hair.

      I leave the conditioner on my hair for a minute or so as I'm impatient so it does get washed off quite quickly! The conditioner is easy to rinse from your hair and it doesn't leave any residue which is obviously what you want.

      After using this product along with the shampoo my hair is silky soft and nice and easy to manage without tangling. I loved this product and it is one of my back up products that I purchase when there is nothing decent on offer. I would recommend this product, my hair is thick and long and it does really well on it.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for those on a budget

      I came across these in asda one day, they was on offer for £1 each for 400ml which I thought was pretty good, they smelled lovely, and was pink so decided to give them ago!

      I dont usually try supermarket own hair brands but Im always looking for a 'miracle' for my hair cheap or expensive.

      First impressions- Pink! Looked nice with a pretty orchid flower and cherrys as a picture on the front of the bottle. The bottle is see through which I like as you can always see how much exactly you have left.

      Use- Ok well, shampoo is a bit like jelly so you dont have to worry about any of that going down the drain by mistake, it lathered well and I didnt need alot for my thick long hair, rinsed out nicely but didnt leave my hair feeling squeaking clean like others do it felt like there was a lot of product left behind no matter how much I rinsed. The conditoner was a good consistencey, not too thick but not runny, surprised I didnt need to use alot till my hair felt 'conditoned'. Easy to rinse out, and oh the smell is lovely!

      Results- Didnt make my coloured hair stand out, made it softer, my hair looked washed of its colour. The shampoo gives me dandruff :/ So wont be buying the shampoo again, but hey, I might buy the conditoner again because that worked ok and smelled like a dream!

      Great shampoo and con if it suits you, at £1 no harm in trying out and will last you ages.

      Intro
      -----
      Last week, me and my flatmate headed to the shops and one of the key things on our list was some hair produce. The girl's stuff had ran out meaning that we needed a new product.

      Essentially, we attempted to find the most feminine and camp thing we could, so naturally, when we came across a product boasting 'Cherry Blossom' flavours, we snapped it right up!

      However, turns out its actually a great product, so the yoke is definately on us!!


      Price
      ------
      Pricewise it is very reasonable. We picked up both the shampoo and the conditioner for £2 and the bottle is nice and sizeable. I have been using it for a few days now and it has barely gone down.

      I think it will probably last me about another month, meaning that it really is very good value for money.


      Smell
      -------
      Im not sure that its claim to fame that it smells of cherry blossom and orchid is strictly correct. I am not exactly sure what these scents smell like anyway but what i am sure of is the nice smell of this product.

      It certainly leaves your hair smelling quite nice and fruity. My girlfriend even complemented me yesterday on the scent! So it is clearly quite nice.


      Product
      ---------
      I am not a scientist, so i obviously cannot tell you about the anti-dandruff properties of this product. However, it leaves your hair feeling soft and hydrated, and doesn't go greasy for at least a couple of days.

      I was my hair every single day, so this is a perfect product for me, and works very well.


      Summary
      -----------
      Thus, if you want a good product that does the job on your hair for a reasonable price, then look no further than this bad boy. It does the job nicely.

      See review.

      As you may have gathered by now I have a real penchant for "fruity" scented things. Whether it be creams, shower gels even air fresheners, if it has some element of fruit scent in there I will be very tempted.

      After a recent shopping trip to Asda I was not too happy to find that all the hair conditioners that I usually indulge in...you know the one's, the expensive but on offer one's, were not actually on offer.
      Now I have used Alberto Balsam conditioners before but they are in my opinion worse than useless, so I try not to get the cheaper branded one's if I can help it, but seeing that the Asda's own branded conditioner was offer, and the fact that I have tried one of the others in the range and was reasonably impressed I thought I would bite the bullet!

      The product I will now review is - "Asda natural extracts extra shine, cherry blossom & orchid conditioner"

      The clincher was of course the fact that this was on offer at time of purchasing, followed closely by the simple word in the title "cherry!"

      The bottle is a clear bog standard bottle with the briefest of information on the front and a delightful picture of some cherries and an orchid.
      The conditioner is visible through the bottle and is a nice mid pink colour, and visibly thick an creamy. The lid is of the flip top variety, which is unfortunately slightly rounded, this means in Sarah speak that when getting dangerously close to the last dregs of product you cannot flip it over and let those dregs run into the lid!

      When using the product you simply flip open the lid, very easy to do, even with wet hands, and squeeze, again very easy to do, the bottle is a nice soft plastic.

      The scent of this stuff is delicious, there is a slight flowery undertone but the cherries is the most predominant scent there. The cherry scent really reminds me of that children's lipstick/balm you could get once upon a time from the Avon, oh memories....... Anyway!

      The conditioner is nice and thick, but not as thick as some of the better known conditioners, never the less once smoothed onto the hair, concentrating on the ends first then the roots as instructed, I can feel my hair getting softer and easier to run my fingers through, which I always at this stage as I always forget to take a detangling comb into the shower with me!

      I always leave mine in for a few minutes for optimum effect then rinse, this again is very easy to do and comes out easily without having to re-rinse.

      Once dried the scent of the conditioner is still there lingering deliciously on my hair, though it does get masked a little with my styling products.

      This conditioner claims to fortify the hair with nutrients (don't they all!) and leave smooth and shiny (again a claim that many make).
      I am lucky that my hair is badly abused (by me!), but still holds onto that glossy look, though I could always do with some help keeping it smooth.

      My hair is lovely and soft, and this product hasn't irritated my scalp like some of the stronger scented conditioners can do.

      Price wise this will set you back around the £1.40 mark, but when on offer can usually be brought for "2 for £2.00".
