Conditioner is something I use every time after I wash my hair otherwise my shoulder length dyed black hair feels very coarse and not so smooth!
This I spotted In Tesco on offer a couple of weeks back reduced from its usual price of £1.70 to any two bottles from the Elida range being just £1.00 and being a bit of a bargain I actually bought loads of stuff!
The bottle is plastic and lilac in colour with a darker flip-top lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is is Elida Hair Institute Paris, Conditioner 'Revive & Shine'. Other information on the back of the bottle includes being told a bit about the conditioner and how to use it, ingredients are listed as is the size (which in this case is 200ml and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Unilever are given (the manufacturer of the product). To me for a Unilever product this is cheap and very basic looking packaging and at £1.70 a bottle I would not have looked twice at purchasing it simply due to that fact.
The Conditioner Itself:
Very blobby with a weird shiny like consistency to it, it is a lilac colour with a pleasant strong fragrance of berry like fruits to it...which is like I just said really nice.
To use it of course you simply rinse your hair free of shampoo, use a small blob of this (a little does go a long way as it feels a bit greasy) and then massage it into the hair or leave it for a minute or so and then rinse it off ...which it does with ease.
My hair is left soft though not really all that shiny though like I stated earlier I do have black hair (usually until it needs dying!) and to be fair to my hair although it has a whole heap of issues up with it such as frizz and the likes it doesn't lack shine thankfully so at least that doesn't dull it at all and probably does it enhance it....I just can't tell!
My hair doesn't feel revived no matter what that means by its name but it is left not greasy and not dry either and is soft enough to get a comb a through and the scent lingers on the hair making me feel fresher for longer for ages after using it!
Not bad but in my opinion this is simply nothing special and is probably best suited for day to day use.
Available in all good supermarkets.
