Asda Smart Price Conditioner
Advantages: Cheap, easy to use, does leave hair feeling soft
Disadvantages: Fragrance, doesn't do anything 'special'
When it comes to shampoos and conditioners I really am not overly fussy on what I use. I swap and change often, buying whatever brand is on offer and occasionally when I'm a little more flush I treat myself to my favourites from Tony & Guy and use them as 'special' lol.
However the other day I was in Asda and by the time I got to the toiletry section of the store, I knew I was way over budget but that I needed to get some shampoo and conditioner and so I picked up a couple Alberto Balsam items at £1.00 each. I was quite happy to pay this till I spotted this conditioner at only 24p a bottle and decided to get this and the matching shampoo (that I had forgot that I had hated before when I tried it lol!).
This comes in a see through slightly frosted white bottle with a white plastic screw on/off lid to the top of it then around the bottle there is a green and white coloured label and on the front of that we are told that it is Asda 'Smart Price Conditioner and that it contains 500ml of the product. Other information on the bottle includes the ingredients being given and being told how to use it, cautions are listed and contact detials for Asda are given. This is distinctively a cheap offering just from the style of packaging that it has, it really does look stand out cheap however to me its always the product that counts over appearance anyway.
This is a rather runny light mint green in colour conditoner. The smell is really quite weird though and very hard indeed to describe being neither floral or fruity and I at best say this has a fragrance, to me of aloe vera or something like that. Its pleasant enough though, lingers on the hair freshly for a good few hours after using it and is unisex in fragrance.
To use it of course you take a blob and smooth it through damp/wet hair. A little goes a long way, it doesn't feel greasy or anything adverse like that and I simply leave it to penetrate my hair for a minute or so before rinsing it off which it does very easily indeed. I have no problems in using this at all.
This leaves my hair reasonably soft and without any residue in it at all. I can get a brush through it anyway and it doesn't feel greasy or dried out, just normal really. I can't say it makes my hair stunningly shiny or particuolary smooth or anything but it does make my hair less flyaway and easier to style and like its been conditioned so all in all not a bad product, just don't expect any miricles to come from this bottle!
Only available from Asda or from asda.com costing 24p a bottle.
Summary: For all hair types!
