“ Brand: Cobella / Type: Conditioner / Hair type: damaged, coloured hair / What it does: moisturizes „
~ Price & Availability ~
The conditioner is currently priced at £5.50 for a 250ml bottle.
I used to see these dotted around in some of the larger Boots stores but haven't seen them for quite some time now so I'm not sure whether Boots just don't stock them anymore! I have since heard that Tesco sometimes stock some of the Cobella products.
You can also get this directly from www.cobella.co.uk but just watch out for the P&P charges which I think are a bit on the steep side!
1-5 items £4.50, 5-10 items costs £8 postal charges. No free postal charges for orders over a certain amount!
~ Packaging ~
A 250ml transparent, plastic bottle. It has a screw top lid which presses down at one side to reveal a small opening from which the conditioner is dispensed. This is really good as you can easily control how much you apply.

~ My experience ~
Anyone who has read my hair product reviews before will know how I have awful frizzy hair. I wouldn't mind if it fell in to delicate waves but it's the ultimate in frizz, not a good look!
I also had to give in to dying my hair some years ago as the grey is coming through fast and furiously so I appreciate any products that help condition my now coloured hair as colours so often dry out your hair.
My favourite part of this conditioner, like all Cobella products is the smell. It's really lovely, clean and fresh smelling without smelling clinical or like a harsh shampoo.
When it's in the bottle it looks 'peachy' in colour but when you pour it on to your hand it's a creamy colour.
I usually always try to use this after shampooing as it really does give a lovely soft feel to my hair.
I initially made the mistake of putting too much on my hair which meant that it went a bit limp, as is the case with most conditioners. But a full teaspoon size is adequate for my shoulder length hair.
It's easily applied, working it evenly through my hair. I leave it on for a minute or two and rinse it off thoroughly.
It's suggested that for extra dry or highlighted hair you treat your hair weekly by leaving it on for ten minutes before rinsing it off. I have never tried this but even a couple of minutes does the trick for my hair.
My hair is noticeably more manageable after using this conditioner - it isn't shiny as they suggest will happen but their claim to make hair more manageable certainly works on my unruly locks!
It hasn't got rid of my frizz, I would need a miracle for that, but it is certainly a tad calmer!
