Aveda Shampure Conditioner
Advantages: Good, natural ingredients.
I am desperate to have glossy glowing hair. A friedn of mine has beautiful hair and I asked her what shampoo and conditioner she recommended, and it was this, Aveda, Shampure conditioner. The name confused me at first as it sounds like more of a shampoo's name (which it is also) and this is the corresponding conditioner.
Shampure promises to revitalise thin lifeless, hair, and I definitely fall into that catagory. My hair is thin and has no volume. I used to be convinced it was dry and damaged, but my hair dresser tells me if I use those sorts of shampoo it will only weigh my hair down even more.
I think this is a very expensive conditioner, the cheapest I could find it was on amazon for around eleven pounds incluidng postage, and that was for a 250ml bottle. I certainly wasn't going to invest in a bigger bottle until I had seen this ones worth, especially at the price of it. A bigger bottle is of course better value pence per ml though.
The conditioner itself is well packaged, definitely indicating a premium brand. The lid has one end which you push down, which in turn pops the other end up and bares a hole which dispenses the conditioner. The conditioner itself is white and creamy, and has no real strong smell. It is easy to rub into the hair and feels nice and soft. I apply it mainly to the ends of my hair and work a tiny bit upwards, but stear clear of the roots.
I always leave it to soak in for a minute or two before I wash it off. The conditioner is nice and easy to wash off, it doesn't need several washes, and leaves my hair feeling refreshed and clean.
It doesn't yet seem to give me the extras, which I do get from some other conditioners. By this I mean it doesn't seem to add extra shine or boost the glossiness of my hair. It doesn't make it feel super smooth and super soft. I hope that the problem is that this conditioner is really really good for you and doesn't waste it's time with the superficial things and instead works on really conditioning your hair deep down.
I will continue to use the rest of the bottle, of course at this price! But after that, unless I have noticed a real change, I won't be buying it again. It wouldf have to be five stars to jusitify it's cost, but sadly at the moment it is only a three star product for me, with a five star price tag!!
Summary: Hasn't got the x factor.
