      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great value product - that works wonders and the price is amazing,

      =Boots Coconut & Almond Leave-in Conditioner=

      The Coconut and Almond Leave in Conditioner is from Boots own brand range, and is available both is store on line.

      =Size and Price=

      A 150ml bottle is priced around £1.39

      =The bottle=
      This is a plastic clear bottle and this has a pump dispenser to use for the release of the conditioner and this is covered with a clear plastic top.

      =The conditioner=
      This is white in colour, it reminds me of the inner of a coconut, with a mix of the juice.

      =To Use=
      Once you have used shampoo and your hair is towel dry, you spray the conditioner from the root of your hair, to the tips. When you spray a fine even mist comes from the dispenser. It's a fine mist and is quite controlled in terms of the range of the spray.

      =Once Sprayed=
      You get a faint smell of the coconut, but this is not over powering, once you have sprayed through, leave a minute then style as normal.

      =Extracts=
      As well as the coconut there is extracts of Almond. The conditioner is designed for normal to dry hair.

      =Styling=
      I find my hair is easy to style once I have brushed it, it doesn't feel rough, just nice and smooth. I use it as well in my daughters hair, as she has long hair half way down her back and there are times when she needs a little extra help with her hair. Especially when we are on holiday and she is in and out of the pool, the chlorine dries her hair out, and this gives it some stability and ease of use back.


      =Long Lasting=
      The bottle is really long lasting, as you don't need to use it every day, and when you do, I find that a little goes a long way.

      =All Ages=
      I think that this is suitable for all ages, and occasions, from going swimming then trying to shampoo your hair under the showers at the swimming baths, when you are on holiday and need that extra bit of help, through to when you don't feel well and don't have time or the energy to condition your hair under the shower.

      =Would I recommend=
      I would highly recommend these conditioner.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Nice fragrance and fine mist.

        I do love products which have a Coconut fragrance, I just love the smell of Coconut and adore the smell. Coconut is a smell people love or hate I happen to love it. So when I spotted this product I bought it to give it a go.

        The conditioner comes inside a transparent plastic bottle and has a pump dispenser and a clear plastic top. The conditioner is white colour but looks quite cloudy inside the bottle. It sprays an even mist and is quite a fine mist and doesn't make a mess when spraying it onto the hair.

        It is to be sprayed onto damp towel dried hair after shampooing the hair. I just spray it from the root of my hair to the tip. Then I just leave it for a minute or 2 and then just brush it and style it in the usual way. It has a nice Coconut fragrance and one which is quite a sweet smell. It isn't too overpowering, so if you don't like the smell of Coconut but still want to buy this one to try I don't think you would be disappointed in how much of the fragrance it actually produces. It also has a slight smell of the Almond but it isn't as apparent as the Coconut fragrance in my opinion.

        Once my hair has dried, I can detect the Coconut fragrance on it but the smell doesn't last that long on the hair, maybe a hour or so after it has dried but the smell is really pleasant on my hair and it has a nice fresh smell to it.

        I have grown my hair really long and it is a fair way down my back at the moment. I have thick hair and I have found this conditioner works a treat for conditioning it in a way I like a leave in conditioner to work. My hair feels really soft and this one does produce a good shine to my hair and it does look quite a glossy look.
        It doesn't feel too heavy on my hair. My hair has movement and it flows freely when I brush my fingers through my hair. I have a habit of brushing my hair over my ears and I can do this with no problem with it feeling tacky or sticky etc, it just brushes well over my ears.

        It contains extracts of Coconut and Almond which are designed to moisturise and smooth the hair to leave it tangle free and soft. I can easily brush my hair after using this conditioner without having to tug my hair to straighten it etc. It doesn't feel all knotted or rough, just nice and smooth like most brands.

        It is designed for normal to dry hair, I have normal hair but I do colour my hair and I like to use a conditioner which won't fade my colour or leave it rough or brittle.

        For a 150ml bottle I paid just £1.39 from Boots. I think it is very good value for money and well worth the price. The quality is extremely good being a shops own brand of leave in conditioner. Is cheap and affordable to buy for any budget in my opinion and well worth every penny spent. The bottle lasts for quite some time too because you don't need to spray a lot onto the hair to produce a nice softness. A little does go a very long way with this conditioner in my opinion. Just a quick spray and the job is done perfectly.

        I tend to use this one when I am feeling unwell or if I am in a hurry and want to not spend too much time in the shower. I think the bottle size is ideal for taking on holiday because the bottle isn't too big and will fit inside a wash bag quite nicely and take up less space in the bag. Think it is also a good size to take to the swimming baths too in your bag so that you can still wash your hair in the shower at the swimming baths and also condition it at the same time. It also doesn't weigh much and so is also light enough to carry in a bag.
        I also think it is suitable for young children or teenagers to use to soften their hair. I think if you have a young child who has really long hair and you want to condition it well and not to have the child leaving a hair conditioner on their hair for too long so that they get bored etc, I just think this one is ideal for them to use on their hair and it can be conditioned in no time and you don't have to rinse it from their hair.

        I am really pleased with the way this conditioner works for softening my hair and I am very pleased to recommend it and I don't think you would be disappointed in the results.

        I will most certainly buy this one again in the future because I love the fragrance and it works really well for conditioning my long hair and leave it nice and soft to the touch and with movement.

        I give this one 5 stars.

        Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Love it!

          ~Leave-In Conditioner~

          Boots have a range of hair and body products called 'Ingredients'. The Ingredients range includes lots of coconut and almond scented products including shower gel and body cream. There are also a few coconut and almond hair care products in this range including shampoo, conditioner, an intensive mask and this leave-in conditioner which I will be reviewing.

          The leave-in conditioner is a spray on conditioner which is suitable for normal to dry hair types. This conditioner contains coconut and almond extracts. It should be sprayed onto clean, towel dried hair and combed through from root to tip. There is no need to rinse. Boots claim this conditioner will leave your hair soft, smooth, moisturised and free from tangles.

          ~Packaging~

          This conditioner is presented in a clear, plastic bottle with a spray top. A simple white label with a coconut/almond image runs around the bottle and the important product information is present. This product has a 24 month shelf life. Not all parts of the bottle can be recycled.

          ~Price~

          A 150ml bottle is available instore and from www.boots.com. This product retails at £1.39 and is currently on a 3 for 2 offer.

          ~My Thoughts~

          I have read so many positive reviews of this leave-in conditioner and when my sister also recommended it, I decided to buy it. There is a tiny Boots chemist a few minutes walk from my home and they stocked this so those who do not have a larger Boots store nearby should have no problem with purchasing this. At £1.39 I feel this is an excellent price.

          I have thick, dry hair which really does need a conditioner to keep it within a manageable state. I wash my hair over the bath using the shower head and due to having a bad back, I like to complete this task as quickly as possible. My new hair washing regime includes a quick wash with shampoo, a quick dry with the towel and then applying my leave-in conditioner. I also use an intensive mask once a week and this seems to suit me fine.

          I am currently using the Superdrug coconut and almond shampoo but will be trying the Boots version as I am not keen on the Superdrug version. It smells completely different to this conditioner and very fake. Anyway, moving on to discuss this lovely product. The bottle is very easy to use. The conditioner is visible through the bottle and is a cloudy, milky water. At first, I struggled to see how something so watery could moisturise my hair.

          Once my hair has been washed and towel dried, it does feel quite dry and practically begging for some form of conditioner. I only need to use a few sprays of this conditioner as it comes out in a fine yet effective mist which goes a long way. The scent of the conditioner is gorgeous and fragrant. The coconut is more prominent as I can barely notice the almond. The overall scent is fresh, sweet and a little exotic. It lingers on my hair and I feel the shampoo would help enhance the overall scent and strength.

          This conditioner performs very well indeed and feels lightweight. My hair soaks it all up and I can comb or brush through it with complete ease - no tangles shall get in my way! My hair is instantly smooth. Once dried (the results are the same with blow drying as well as leaving my hair to dry naturally), there is no residue left on my hair. Thankfully this conditioner doesn't leave my roots oily and I am simply treated to soft, smooth and easy to manage locks. I normally wash and condition my hair every second day and the moisturisation is still present by the second evening.

          ~Conclusion~

          Overall I am impressed with this conditioner. It works as well as a regular conditioner in my opinion, smells great and lasts well. It is well priced too and I can highly recommend buying it. My bottle is lasting incredibly well despite regular use.

          Thanks for reading :)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            creates really natural tousled waves

            I've just finished using the Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond range of hair care products. I'm not brand loyal when it comes to shampoos and conditioners, I'm happy to use whichever products happen to be on offer or seem to be the best value.

            One of the products in the Boots Coconut & Almond range that I really loved was the Leave In Conditioner. This comes in a 150ml spray pump bottle, and it costs just £1.39. The conditioner itself is a liquid conditioner, and it's opaque white in colour. It states that it's for normal to dry hair, my hair is probably normal and maybe just a little on the dry side so this was perfect for me.

            This is formulated with extracts of coconut and almond, and you can definitely smell the coconut in this. It's quite an intense coconut scent, both in the bottle and when you spray it onto your hair. I found that the coconut fragrance lingered in my hair for the rest of the day as well. The lingering coconut fragrance wasn't too overpowering in my hair, but it was just subtle enough to be noticeable if I wafted my hair. The fragrance of this conditioner reminds me of summer, sun tan lotion and summer holidays, it's quite a sweet fragrance, but it's not too sickly sweet. I can't smell the almond in this at all, the coconut is literally the only thing that I can smell.

            The directions for use are simple; after shampooing towel dry hair, spray conditioner from roots to tips and comb through, for best results use with Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Shampoo. I did use this along with the matching coconut & almond shampoo, and I also alternated this with the regular coconut & almond conditioner, and the coconut & almond intensive hair mask.

            I found this conditioner easy to spray through my hair, and easy to comb through my hair. I was pleasantly surprised that it left my hair fairly tangle free. My hair is slightly longer than shoulder length, and I would typically use about a dozen squirts of the conditioner. I don't own a hairdryer and so I always leave my hair to dry naturally, sometimes it can fall into nice natural tousled looking waves, and sometimes it can just look a little dry and frazzled. Obviously the nice natural tousled looking waves would be my preferred style! I found that this leave in conditioner always left me with the really natural tousled waves, it seemed to smooth my hair and left it feeling soft, and looking shiny and healthy. It seemed to leave my hair looking like I'd made an effort, when I'd actually made no effort whatsoever, apart from just to spritz this conditioner through my hair.

            I will definitely buy this again, I really loved the nice natural look that it gave my hair with no effort whatsoever. It's a really lightweight conditioner that doesn't weigh my hair down, yet is meaty enough to smoothen and moisturise my hair, leaving it soft and shiny, and tangle free. It's really cheap, it smells gorgeous, and it works, what more could you want!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great stuff

            My dear other half buys this leave in conditioner when she goes to Boots and I use it myself quite a lot. I have very dry hair and my wife has rather greasy and lank hair but this seems to suit us both quite well. I like anything with coconuts and knew I'd like this before I'd even tried it out on myself. The bottle is fairly basic and plain looking and nothing to write home about but the product works a treat at making my hair look good and more manageable.

            The bottle is sized at 150ml and costs only £1.39 a pop. You only need to use a small amount for excellent results so it will last for ages, which is always a bonus. There are two main reasons why I like this coconut conditioner so much. Firstly, it has to be the smell. It's purely coconuts. It's a natural smell of the 'real thing' and doesn't smell at all man-made. It lingers and lingers for ages because you leave this conditioner in your hair after you have washed and towel dried it.

            The second reason I like this so much is the fact that it is in a spray bottle and you just spray it all over your hair and leave it and then style as you normally would. I always use all my shampoos and conditioners on my beard as well as on my head hair. The hair on my beard is quite old now, not to mention very long, and as such, it is prone to dryness and split ends. After I have sprayed it with this great coconut conditioner though, it is much more manageable and easier to control. My beard and head hair just shine with health and look like they are positively glowing with vitality. My beard is much more likely to stay in place with this and less likely to look flat, dry and lifeless.

            Another plus is that my dear other half likes to kiss me when I have used this as she says she loves the strong aroma of the coconuts around my face and mouth.

            I think that for the relatively cheap price of this great leave in conditioner, you really cannot go wrong. It's simple to use and makes a vast improvement to my hair and I really recommend it highly.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a great leave in conditioner

            I love doing my hair and often treat myself to different conditioners and hair treatments. I came across this conditioner in Boots and decided I would buy it because it smelt lovely and I love Coconut scented hair products and also because it was really cheap.

            The Scent
            This leave in conditioner smells lovely, it has a really nice and fresh coconut scent to it. I find that the scent from this conditioner lingers faintly around my hair for a while which is nice as it smells so lovely and clean.

            Applying
            This hair treatment is really easy to apply, on the bottle it says to simply spray it all over your hair and comb it through your hair from root to tip. I however do not really like applying this conditioner on the roots of my hair, I just put it onto the ends as I find that if I put it onto my roots, that they become rather greasy and my hair becomes heavier and harder to style.

            The Results
            I really like how my hair feels after I use this leave in conditioner, it feels lovely and soft and looks really healthy and shiny. When I use this regularly I find that my hair stays in much better condition and is much easier to style. I think that this conditioner is almost as good as the more expensive brands of leave in conditioner and it is much cheaper and very affordable. I also find that it is much easier to comb my hair when I have used this, especially when it is wet and tangled from washing it.

            Price and Availability
            You can buy this leave in conditioner for £1.39 for a 150ml bottle. I think that this is quite a good price for this conditioner and I will definitely buy it again.

            Overall
            I think that this is a fantastic leave in conditioner and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes coconut smelling hair products and who wants softer hair that is much easier to style at a cheaper, more affordable price. Overall I would give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Over all great product.

              My hair is very greasy at present so I'm trying not to use normal conditioner and have been using leave in conditioner instead.

              The product~
              Comes in a spray bottle with the boots logo at the top. It tells me that it's Coconut and Almond Leave in conditioner for normal to dry hair.
              The product has been developed and created by boots.

              Contains extracts of coconut and almond leaving the hair tangle free. Has notes of cocunut and almonds. The bottle holds 150 ml of conditioner. Check your local with your local council to see if this bottle can be recycled!

              Myself using it~

              My hair at present is very greasy so I'm stiring well clear of condioning my hair the traditional way. I wash my hair the usual way by applying the shampoo twice. I towel dry it them spray on the conditioner, comb through it removes all tangles from the hair then dry and style as usual.

              Available only from boots costing around £1.50 a bottle.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Cheap hair product that works well

              I bought this leave-in conditioner at the same time as I bought the normal Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Conditioner. I was leaving that one at home as a normal conditioner, but hoped to take this leave-in conditioner on holiday with me to help protect my hair from the hot sun in Portugal.

              This leave-in conditioner comes in a clear plastic spray bottle with a simply designed white label bearing a picture of half a coconut and an almond. For the environmentally conscious amongst you, the bottle is made with recycled materials and recycling instructions are also given. Inside, the conditioner is cloudy milky-white in colour and it's easy to see how much you have left. The conditioner is described as being suitable for normal to dry hair, and is specially formulated to moisturise and smooth, leaving hair soft and tangle-free. Made with extracts of coconut and almond, the conditioner should be sprayed through towel-dried hair after shampooing. You are supposed to use this with the matching shampoo, but I was using a different shampoo on holiday so didn't bother. What really attracted me to this product was the price - only £1.32 for 150ml.

              I've used this product in two ways: on damp hair as suggested, and on dry hair on holiday to protect my hair from the sun. Each time, I spray the conditioner onto my hair from different directions making sure I get all of my hair. I use four or five sprays in all. The pleasant coconut, slightly nutty scent lasts for 15 minutes to half an hour after spraying. It would be nice if it was a bit longer, but at least it doesn't clash with any perfume.

              When I used this spray on my dry hair on holiday, I found that it made my hair look slightly damp and greasy, but I didn't care so long as it was protecting my hair! Despite being outside all day every day in high temperatures, my hair remained unburnt (though I probably have my hat to thank for that too) and I believe this conditioner played some part in protecting my hair.

              At home, I have been using the standard coconut & almond conditioner from this range and have found it isn't amazingly effective. Therefore, I've been topping it up with this conditioner, spraying it onto my hair before I dry it. I find there is a noticeable difference when using this conditioner on top of the other - my hair does seem softer and in better condition. I wouldn't want to use this conditioner alone, as my hair is quite dry, but it could be used as a standalone conditioner by someone with normal hair. The conditioner is great value for money - only a few light sprays are used at a time, and the level of product has hardly gone down.

              Overall, I would recommend this conditioner to give your hair an extra moisture boost and to help protect against the sun. It smells nice, lasts ages and is cheap to buy. I would consider repurchasing.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I'll be buying this again - it's lovely

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                Tame those frizzies!
                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                I tend to use hair spray inbetween washes, or before going out in the evenings, to tame my frizzies and give my hair a bit of a boost (and make it smell nice!). I have tried all sorts of different products - some good, some bad - but have no brand loyalty at all so I'm always trying out different products - often using whatever catches my eye or is on offer!

                One thing I do like is a pump action spray rather than the more traditional aerosol spray. I like to have a little bit of moisture added to my hair to help smooth my locks, and I often find aerosol sprays leave my hair feeling dry and sticky.

                So what attracted me to this spray, which is part of the Boots Ingredients range? Well I do like coconut scented products so that was the first tick! This is also a leave-in conditioner rather than a simple spray, and it promises to "moisturise and smooth, leaving hair soft and tangle-free" which I thought sounded an added bonus. And of course there was the price! Coming in at a mere £1.32 for 150ml, it would have been rude not to give this one a try.

                ~~~~~~~~
                Basic bottle
                ~~~~~~~~
                And reflecting this cheap price is the packaging, which is very basic but completely inoffensive. It is actually different to the image added by dooyoo above, as this shows the old packaging. Slightly revamped, this is now in a more cylindrical bottle with a plainer label. It's just a simple, upright bottle with a pump spray at the top. The bottle is see-through so you can see the slightly milky coloured liquid inside, and then there is a simple label with a picture of a coconut and an almond.

                The bottle advises that you spray this onto towel dried hair but, as I like to be contrary, I usually use this on my hair when it's dry. Pressing down the spray, it delivers a simple squirt of fine mist to your hair, and you have to press it again for another squirt. I find two or three goes is enough to add the very fine layer of moisture to my hair that I am after for me to smooth down the surface a little. I can then also add another squirt or two to the rest of my hair to tame it a little and add some fragrance. And, for coconut lovers, this is a really nice scent and I think this is a good spray for summer locks! I think the coconut scent is stronger than the almond, but it isn't too overpowering or sickly - to me it is just right. Of course if you aren't a coconut fan then avoid this but I think it's a lovely scent. And if you really like it, there is a matching shampoo and conditioner in the range, coming in at less than £1 each!

                In terms of the spray itself, is definitely tames the little layer of frizz I can sometimes get crowning my head like an ugly halo! It delivers the right level of moisture to do this, although I do think it is a little sticky, and I am not sure it would be very good for quite fine hair as it may be a little too heavy. For my hair it is just about right - I guess I would prefer it to be slightly less sticky, but for the price it is something I can live with. I also feel the affects of this spray last a long time, although I would certainly want to reapply this at least once during the day.

                I have also used this on wet hair, which is what the spray is designed for after all. When I do this I use a lot more of the spray, and I find that it does make hair feel lovely and soft when it's dry, and that lovely coconut scent lingers too. And once my hair is dry there is none of the stickiness I experience when using the product directly on dry hair.

                ~~~~~~~~
                Summing up
                ~~~~~~~~
                Overall, for the price, I do think this is a great product and it is one I will be buying again. And, if you are not a fan of coconut, Boots does a honey and jojoba version of this spray which I have also used (but isn't on their website so I can't review it!) and I would recommend that version too - it is definitely honey scented so good if you are a fan!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  A great value leave in conditioner

                  I bought this at the end of last month, I had run out of the shampoo and conditioner I normally use and needed something cheap. I bought both for £2 in Boots on offer. The conditioner itself comes in a see through pump action bottle which contains 150ml of the product which looks very much like coconut milk.

                  The conditioner is recommended for normal to dry hair and Boots claim it has been specially formulated to moisturise and smooth hair leaving it tangle free. I used this after the shampoo. You need to towel dry your hair until it is damp and then spray the conditioner evenly throughout your hair. I found I needed to use quite a lot and sprayed more on my ends as they are normally dry. The conditioner itself sprays out very evenly as a fine mist, it has a lovely coconut smell which reminded me of being on holidays.

                  I noticed after blow drying my hair that it felt soft and more managable. My hair had a nice smell of coconut which lasted throughout the day. I have since started using this after showering in the gym to save time.

                  I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good leave in conditioner that costs pennies. The product has a great smell and does the job as well as more expensive leave in conditioner I have tried. I give this 5 out of 5.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Smells nice and makes hair soft.

                    I often leave my hair to dry naturally, which is nice and easy for me, and gets me the waves I want, but there is a down side, it dries slightly frizzy! In al the hair magazines the way they recommended to avoid this was by using leave in conditioner after washing it. The products they recommended in the hair magazines were much more expensive, often over ten pounds, which is a lot for something when you don't know if it is going to work for yo or not. before investing in something more expensive I decided to try giving a cheaper version a go, so I headed to Boots.

                    Boots sell their own brand leave in conditioner. It is in a clear plastic bottle with a white label on, with pictures of a coconut. The packaging appears very natural and back to basics. Th liquid inside is shimmery white in appearance and looks like something nice to put on your hair.
                    It is 150ml for £1.29 which seemed like a bargain price.

                    The top is a spray pump (not an aerosol) and has a screw off lid so you can actually re-use the bottle afterwards if you want to.

                    The product is easy to apply evenly all over the head. The scent is very nice and subtle. I have used coconut products before which have been far too over powering and everyone has commented on the smell, but this is much more undertone and nice. I couldn't pick out the almond smell individually, personally.

                    Unfortunately the product didn't do what I had hoped for and didn't weigh my hair down to make it less frizzy. S for that purpose I wouldn't be buying it again.

                    On the plus side however it did not make my hair any more greasy or limp and life-less. It made my hair a little softer and more moisturised and certainly made it smell nice. As it is quite cheap I am not going to mark it down too much as it is almost a nice confidence boost for your hair, like a nice treat!

                    Disadvantages

                    worth a try at the price but not for everyone

                    Boots Coconut & Almond Leave-in Conditioner

                    I bought this leave-in conditioner as I used to have an Avon one which I liked very much, many years ago, & have never seen one since.

                    Unlike the Avon one you don't pour the thick liquid out of the bottle & rub it in like shampoo or any other conditioner. With this Boots one, you spray a very thin liquid through a pump spray on to your hair then comb it through.

                    It is a milky white substance, with a wonderful coconut & almond aroma, which comes in an opaque plastic bottle with a pump action dispenser & a clear bottle top. All the usual instructions plus ingredients etc are on the label.

                    Plus points;

                    The smell - when I was in hospital the nurses used to remark on the lovely coconut smell of my hair.

                    The cost - approx £1.25 per bottle for 150 mls.

                    Easy, quick & convenient.



                    Minus points;

                    For me it is pretty useless. I sprayed it on, combed it through, & it doesn't feel as if I have conditioned my hair at all - very disappointing. I used it in hospital as it was easy & have tried it at home several times, but in the end I poured it away! Perhaps I should have tried spraying in between shampoos as some have suggested on here.


                    However, this is only my opinion on this one particular product in the range. I use BOOTS INGREDIENTS COCONUT & ALMOND INTENSIVE HAIR MASK 350ml is £1.99 - which is an intensive conditioner with the same coconut & almond smell from the same range, which comes in a large tub - & I can't praise that highly enough.


                    The spray leave-in conditioner is worth a try at the price & is useful in some situations like hospital or on the beach. For me though it doesn't do the whole silky, shiny, smooth, bouncy conditioning thing.

                    Don't forget you will earn Boots Advantage Points, you often get given vouchers for future purchases + Boots give an over 60 discount of 10% on their own products so if you qualify for this it makes it very inexpensive.

                    Disadvantages

                    Fabulous!

                    My little helper in every situation


                    Why did I buy it?
                    I live in Germany and go on holiday in England several times a year. I find Boots products so much better than all the drugstore items I can get over here, so I always fill up the car with body- and haircare stuff from Boots and Superdrug.
                    I saw a special about how good leave-in conditioners are in a magazine and decided to get one too, but I didn't find anything that looked appealing to me. Then I looked at Boot's own range of hair care products and saw this.
                    I bought one to try it out (which was easily done because it is quite cheap) and now I am hooked and buy at least three bottles whenever I come over.


                    What does it look like?

                    The bottle
                    It comes in a clear bottle with a spraying device on top which is covered with a little clear plastic cap (you wouldn't want it to go off in your bag, would you?) - I do recommend looking after that little cap, they tend to disappear ;)
                    There are two glued-on picture/text fields on the bottle. The front picture shows an open coconut. The boots symbol is quite tiny on top of the picture and below that it says "Coconut & Almond Oil". Then there is some space where you can marvel at the lovely white centre of the coconut and under that it says "Leave-in conditioner dor dry hair, moisturises hair for softness and shine".
                    On the back it promises "With natural extracts of Coconut and Almond, Boots öeave-in conditioner is specially formulated to moisturise and smooth dry hair for softness, shine and tangle free hair."
                    The directions go: After shampooing, towel dry hair. Spray conditioner from root to tip and comg through. For best results use with Boots Coconut and Almond oil shampoo."
                    And of course, there is the usual warning to avoid contant with eyes. If the produc ts gets into your eyes, rinse well with water imemdiately.
                    The bottle contains 150ml.
                    Developed and produced by Boots Haircare specialists. Dermatologically tested.

                    www.boots.com


                    The fluid
                    The fluid is milky white and in fact remind me very much of coconuts milk, which makes the description of the bottle more believable. I can't see it in the fluid, but in my almost empty bottle the fluid left some streaks at the top of the bottle that very much looks like little bits of real 'coconut flesh'.


                    The smell
                    The spray smells very nicely of real coconuts. The scent does not seem articifial or too strong to me, just perfect and natural.


                    The ingredients
                    Aqua, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Amodimethicone, Sodium benzonate, Dimethicone copolyol, Sodium methylparaben, Citric Acid, Dypropylene glycol, Parfum, Propylene glycol, Cetrimonium chloride, Trideceth-10, Isopropyl alcohol, Coumarin, Linalool, Limonene, Cocos nucifera, Prunus dulcis, Benzyl benzonate, Butylphenyl methylpropional, Sorbitol, Methylparaben.


                    How do I use it?
                    Most of the time I use it like the description on the bottle recommends, but usually I use it even more.
                    I have one bottle next to the mirror where I do my hair in the morning right after washing it and that's where I comb it in the evening, and there I usually use it. I spray it in generously until my hair is slightly moist and then keep brushing so it reaches every bit of my hair.
                    I also have one bottle sitting next to my computer where I spend a few hours every day, and there I always spray it on when I feel my hair getting really dry.
                    I dye my hair a lot so this is a great way to give my hair some moisture back that I am stealing when torturing it with dye and straightening thongs.
                    So I use it often and usually more than once daily!


                    Where did I buy it, how much was it?
                    I bought this at Boots in various cities already and usually they had it.
                    I can't remember the price right now, but it was less than two pounds.
                    At the boots online store it is priced at £1.26 and you can find it here at www.boots.com under Beauty -> Hair -> Shampoos & Conditioners -> Conditioners.


                    Recommendation
                    I totally and without any doubt recommend this product!
                    Your hair will love and soak it up like a sponge and afterwards it will look more silky and healthy. It is good for any kind of hair, but especially for coloured or permed hair, or hair that is often straightened with heat.
                    Also, the price can't be beat. I have tried a similar German product which was double the price but total rubbish. Boots Coconut&Almond oil is the best!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      I'd use this even if it's only benefit was the gorgeous smell

                      This is a coconut and almond oil leave in conditioner from Boots. It is supposed to moisturise and smooth dry hair to make it soft and shiny.

                      It is a spray which you are meant to apply after shampooing and towelling drying your hair but it seems to work just as well with me whenever I use it, even if I haven't washed my hair for a couple of days. You just spray it from the top to the bottom of your hair and then comb through making it spread all through your hair.

                      I've been using this for a while now but mainly because of the absolutely gorgeous smell. It has a delicious coconut scent and the smell lasts on your hair all day. I end up sniffing my hair all day and when I've used it people often comment on how nice my hair smells which always makes me smile.

                      The spray does make my hair softer and smoother and it gives it a lovely shiny glow. Although it's a conditioner, it doesn't really combat greasy hair so it can't really be used as a substitute for actually washing your hair. I do use this when I have slightly greasy hair and it makes it look less greasy for a few hours but not for the entire day. It also flattens stray hairs which is great for me as my fringe often has a mind of its own in the morning!

                      I really love this leave in conditioner - although it doesn't stop your hair entirely from looking greasy, it does give hair a shine and make it feel softer. The greatest thing about this though is the wonderful smell it gives your hair so I love using it purely for that.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A bargain price for a fabulous hair treatment

                      I bought this product because I was looking for a conditioner that I could just spray in and leave, because washing my hair was taking too long!

                      I picked this up in Boots because it was cheap. It is approximately £1.30 which I think is a bargain for what it is and does!

                      *Packaging*

                      It is in a fairly small spray bottle, which is clear with a label on it. The label shows a picture of an open coconut resting on an almond! I like that it looks quite plain and natural. Makes me feel like I'm doing some good to my hair! The back of the label contains the ingedients of the product, which parts can be recycled, a description of the product, instructions for use, and a symbol of an open pot with 24M next to it - which I assume means use within 24 months! There is also a warning not to get this product in your eyes. (Although, I have sprayed it all over my face by accident and it didn't irritate my eyes, but I wouldn't just take my word for it!)

                      *Product*

                      There is 150ml of this product in the bottle. I have been using it about 3 times a week for the past 4 months and it has only gone down by about 2cm, but I only spray the ends of my hair, then comb it through. The instructions for use for this product are: "after shampooing, towel dry hair. Spray conditioner from root to tip and comb through."

                      The colour of the conditioner is like white cloudy water. Think lemon squash! It is very watery, but as it is being sprayed on your hair I guess it has to be. The predominant smell of this conditioner is (surprise, surprise!) coconut! This is great if you love coconut like me, but could be a bit overpowering for those that don't like the smell of coconut so much. I like the fact that your hair still smells of coconut a while later.

                      *Results*

                      When I don't use this conditioner my hair feels really dry, especially on the ends. But when I do use it there is very noticeable difference. My hair is so much easier to manage, feels softer, and looks in better condition. Even my hairdresser commented how my hair was in such good condition and really shiny!

                      I have loads of this conditioner left, because you don't need to use a lot, but when it runs out I definitely intend to buy this again. At £1.30, even if you don't have any money, the chances are that you'll have 130 boots points if you shop there occasionally! So it would be free! Great deal all round!
