Clairol Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine Conditioner
Advantages: Smells delicious, moisturises my hair and makes it shine
Herbal Essence is a colourful collection of shampoos, conditioners, serums, masks and treatment that have been designed by Clairol to meet the needs of all hair types and all hair conditions. They come in vibrant packaging and are bursting with delicious fragrances. I bought the Dazzling Shine conditioner because there is nothing nicer that having shiny locks and as I used heated styling appliances so frequently, my hair can often appear dull.
What does it do?
The product promises to turn the spotlight on your hair and to coat it with a superstar shine. By using the goodness of natural ingredients, it promises to add a certain sparkle to your locks and to leave your hair glimmering with health. The conditioner has been specifically designed for hair that is normal but my hair is dry and damaged and is still does a fantastic job on mine.
How does it work?
The conditioner contains Green Tea which is an antioxidant. This means that it can find all the free radicals that are lurking in the hair after exposure to the sun and pollutants and remove them. By doing so, it means that the pollutants are no longer dulling the appearance of the hair and this allows it to shine naturally.
It also contains vitamins which nourish and strengthen the hair and leave it in a better condition. The Vitamin B5 within the substance, softens the hair and allows it to maintain its elasticity meaning fewer hairs will snap, tangle and split.
It also soothes and nourishes the scalp which means you will get healthy new hair growth. The conditioner also contains Berry and Orange Extract which I assume are there for the aromatherapy aspect.
How do you use the product?
This conditioner is to be used in the same way as any other conditioner. After shampooing the hair, the product is to be massaged for into damp hair for a few minutes and then rinsed away thoroughly. I make sure I work it into my scalp and the ends of my hair in particular.
Packaging and Price
This conditioner is packaged within a vibrant green opaque bottle which has curved sides. The top is a slightly darker green and you push down on one side of the lid to flip it open.
This conditioner will cost you around £1.99 for 200ml of the product or you may prefer to buy the larger bottle that is available but this obviously costs more. The product is available from many department stores, most supermarkets and a variety of online websites. The price of the conditioner may vary slightly and if you search around, you'll find that the product is frequently on offer.
All with all of Herbal Essence's products, this conditioner comes with a delicious smell. This one has a distinctly fruity smell and the aroma of berries is particularly evident. It is a lovely fresh scent although it can get a little sickly at time. The smell is very powerful when you are actually using it to wash you hair and it lingers on your hair for ages after use so with time, you may tire of it. I love the sweet scent however so I don't think I ever will!
The conditioner has a nice consistency being not too runny and not too thick. It is thick enough that you can leave it on your hair for a longer amount of time and feel safe in the knowledge that it won't drip off. The matching shampoo to this conditioner is bright green but this product has a creamy colour although there is an ever so subtle hint of green. It coats the hair nicely and it really feels like it's doing a good job.
I started using Hello Hydration, which is the conditioner for dry and damaged hair in the Herbal Essence Collection and found that my hair was no better after use. When using this conditioner however, I find that my hair is deeply moisturised from the point of use and my hair feel silky in the shower as opposed to the roughness I felt with hello Hydration.
After use, my hair is extremely hydrated with all signs of frizziness long gone. My split ends are less noticeable, my hair tangles less and I find that I have fewer breakages. My hair is softer and smoother and feels lovely to touch.
As for the shine, well this conditioner really does make my hair dazzle. It has such a healthy shine that it almost looks like I've used a treatment on it. It never makes my hair feel greasy or weighs it down and it leaves my hair feeling good as new.
All in all, I think this conditioner works just as well on dry and damaged hair as it would on normal. The smell is delicious and it manages to hydrate my hair well, while coating it with a gorgeous shine. I find that this conditioner enhances the condition of my hair from the very first use and for the price, it's one of the best products in its range.
Summary: A conditioner that makes your hair shine with health
