“ Brand: Boots / Type: Conditioner / Product line: Boots Fruit Essence „
Following on from my review on the Boots Fruit Essence vibrant colour I will now talk about my experience with the Boots fruit essence vibrant colour conditioner. When I buy a new shampoo I always like to but the accompanying shampoo as I think they work better in conjunction with each other.
In my shampoo review I wrote that I thought shampoo's these days are getting quite expensive so I decide to try these Boots own variety shampoo and conditioner as they were only £1.29 per bottle and they looked as good as the more expensive brands and smelt nice so I decided to try them.
On the back of the bottle it says, "Keep that richly vivid colour for longer with fruit essence's vibrant colour conditioner. Whether your hair is divinely dark or light and bright, this vibrant colour conditioner targets the damage from coloured hair with special conditioning agents. This nourishing conditioner contains extracts of natural silk and papaya famous for its revitalising properties."
I was disappointed with the shampoo but I think I have to say I was definitely more disappointed with the conditioner. From the outside of the bottle it looks really nice. However, when I squeeze a dollop into my hand in the shower this is where I was disappointed. Most conditioners are nice and thick and really coat the hair. You can feel the thickness attaching to you hair and really working its softening magic onto your tresses. When I first squeezed this conditioner onto my hands it was thin and had no thick consistency to it whatsoever, it was very limp and disappointing. It didn't really smooth through my hair nicely and when it came to combing my wet hair through after my shower it still had tangles in and was not smooth or nourished at all. Just like the shampoo, the nice smell that came from the bottle disappears once you put this conditioner on your hair and I feel like I wasted £1.29 on this 400ml bottle.
It's definitely true in this case that you get what you pay for and in the future I will definitely be paying more for my conditioner and not scrimping with this brand.
