      Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment & Shine Conditioner

      Before anyone says anything yes I do realise I am reviewing the old Herbal Essences :)

      I will never get my head round why they needed to change their range I prefer their old one! Herbal Essences is now been sold as Hello Hydration for those who didnt know.
      Anyway I haven't seen these old bottles sold for a while but as I was looking through the 99p shop yesterday I noticed rows of the old bottles on offer for 79p for 400ml! So I picked up 3 bottles to keep me going for a while.

      The Claim:
      Obviously you may have gathered from the name that this conditioner promises to nourish and protect your hair whilst leaving it shiny and fabulous. It will also smooth and treat your hair helping to heal dry, split ends.

      Application:
      You apply this in the same way as any normal conditioner when your hair is wet and you have washed out you usual shampoo. Although I do recommend using the matching shampoo to this conditioner to get best results.

      I don't think I need a lot to cover my entire hair, its feels really creamy and fresh when your putting it on and washes out pretty quickly as well. So application couldn't be easier.

      The Smell:
      Ohhhhhhh! The smell of this conditioner makes it nearly good enough to eat. The back of the bottle describes the smell as coconut and Hawaiian extracts and coconut is definitely the most prominent scent. I could also smell mango, banana & oranges so overall the smell is very tropical. It does smell DIVINE, just try it & see what I mean!

      The Results:
      The thing I liked most about this conditioner apart from the smell was it was sooo easy to brush my hair after I used it, no clumps or knots whatsoever which really impressed me. The smell lasted for nearly a whole day on my hair which I was absolutely amazed by because I'm a smoker and even that didnt get rid of this wonderful smell. My hair felt clean and manageable for a good two days after and well its just generally brilliant.

      Overall Opinion:
      These shampoo's and conditioners are a brilliant bargain that I urge anyone to try. This does everything I could possibly need from a conditioner and the fact that the stuff smells amazing just makes the whole product even better. Look around your local bargain shops for good deals on this. Recommended by me.

      Thanks For Reading

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Never again

      After seeing the adverts for Herbal Essences more times than I care to remember, I decided to try these products when they were brought out in the new packaging. Seeing them in my local supermarket at £1 each I thought I would give it a shot. I normally use relatively good haircare - usually over £4-5 a bottle so I figured if this was good it would be a great saving to my monthly beauty spend.

      The shampoo is a bright blue colour which instantly put me off as it obviously contains a heck of a lot of chemical colourants. It does smell quite nice but not as punchy as I had hoped. It lathers really well (again due to the synthetic foaming agents in it) but when washed out it left the most horrible residue in my hair. It did not make my hair feel squeaky clean.

      The conditioner again has the same bland smell but different whiter colour. I only used a little bit but still found it hard to wash out again.

      The major disappointment came upon drying my hair. These products left my hair dull, lank and flat. I looked like my hair was in need of another wash.It did feel quite soft but normally I get a great shine with my other usual products. I could get no volume into the roots when blow drying and instead it just went really flat.

      I can safely say that even if I walked past these on sale for 20p each I would not buy it again. Definately not for me.

      Great product for every day use

      The best thing about this product is definitely the smell, or should I say the variety of scents you have to choose from. It really takes to your hair as well. I used this shampoo for a couple of years (I just like a change from time to time) and I loved the way the conditioner managed to detangle my dry, fine fly away hair and the way it left my hair smelly so fresh and fruity.
      I usually used the one for dry damaged hair Both conditioner and shampoo) and it seemed to do the trick although, I must say that the results were nothing to shout but then again they don't make any exceptional claims about the product either.
      It is average price ranging from £2-3 depending on where you shop and there seems to be a lot of promotions carried out on this conditioner. It's an every day conditioner I think. If you are wanting a dramatic result from your conditioner you may be better investing in the intensive conditioner which I have to say is pretty damn good!
      So all in all I would recommend this for everyday use but if you need a dramatic hair lift opt for the intensive range or a brand that specialising in this.

      Tooty frooty!

      I managed to get this in the bargain corner in my local Tesco's once again, the packaging for this product and it's now being sold as Hello Hydration in new style bottles. I didn't let this put me off one bit for the 40p price tag it was marked up as so I snapped it up off the shelf.

      The packaging is a clear blue plastic with a flip up lid but like I say this is now going to be replaces with a solid blue plastic bottle with the light green circle on it. As they are bringing out new packaging for this it's worth looking out for the old style bottles in the pound shops or offers on the new style bottles that they are doing to get people familiar with the new look.

      I did pay an incredible 40p for this 400ml bottle but it normally retails for a full price of £1.99 for the 200ml bottle and £3.29 for the 400ml bottle on Boots.com. Taking into account the full price it's definitely worth looking for the offers (oh and you can currently get a free sample of this exact shampoo on the Herbal Essences Website if you click on to the 'user of old Herbal Essences?' section, just a little tip for you peeps).

      The shampoo is a bright blue see through liquid and has quit a decent consistency. The scent is amazing, fruity, fresh and zingy. It contains coconut and Hawaiian hibiscus extracts and smells like fruit salad in a bottle, I was really looking forward to trying this.

      The shampoo lathers in to a great pile of foam on top of your head and it really feels like its cleaning your hair thoroughly, as well as filling the bathroom with a wonderful smell. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get the conditioner from the bargain bucket as well but I will definitely be looking out for one of these in my local bargain store.

      Even though I didn't use the conditioner, my hair did feel smoother and once styled, definitely shinier. The shampoo is specifically designed for dry and damaged hair and as I have mine coloured, I try to use products that will help to keep the moisture in my hair and shampoos that aren't harsh.

      I was really pleased with the outcome of this shampoo and only wish I'd managed to use the matching conditioner for two reasons, one to see the full effect of both products and two because I really love the smell of this and my normal conditioner overwhelmed the scent a bit which was a shame.

      I think I would buy this again and I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for any more offers!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I'll buy it till they stop making it!

        I love the Herbal Essences range, and use their shampoos and conditioners most of the time. Some friends have remarked that the shampoos find them a little bit too strong and 'stripping', but my hair is quite fine and gets greasy, so I like the 'sqeaky clean' feeling that most of their shampoos leave you with. However, when it comes to conditioner, I like my hair to feel soft and silky - in other words to be able to tell that I've used them. I want something that makes it easy to get my comb through my hair afterwards, and if it smells nice, that's a bonus. Oh, and it needs to be cheap too! (I don't ask much!)

        Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment and Shine conditioner ticks all the boxes. It comes in a large 400ml bottle (much bigger than most shampoos/conditioners) which lasts for ages, and is made from quite flexible plastic which means you can squeeze it to get the last drops out when it's nearly empty. It also has a handy flip cap which is easy to open and close with wet hands, and has a flat top so you can store it upside down to get to the last bits.

        The large Herbal Essences products are usually around £2.99 or £3.25, but are often on 3 for 2 or BOGOF in supermarkets and Boots or Superdrug, so it's worth waiting for an offer and then stocking up!

        This particular variety comes in a bright blue bottle with pictures of coconuts on, which is one of the ingredients advertised on the bottle, the other one being Hawaiian Hibiscus. I'm not sure how much of these are actually in the product, but the fragrance that hits you first is definitely the coconut! I can only describe it as smelling like a Pina Colada - tropical and yummy! This is one of my favourite things about the product, and unlike many hair products, the smell actually lasts, and is often commented on by my boyfriend and the girls in my office!

        It's nice and thick in consistency, which means it sticks to your hair when you massage it in, rather than just running off your head. I usually leave it on my hair for a couple of minutes in the shower, but I think it works just as well if you rinse it straight away. The only thing I would be careful of is not to get too much near the roots of your hair, particularly if you have fine hair like mine, as it can make it a bit lank and greasy. However it moisturises my dry ends perfectly, so I concentrate on that area when I use it.

        Once it's rinsed out, my hair feels instantly softer and silky, and is a dream to comb through. I can blow-dry it without using any smoothing serums or other products as it leaves my hair so smooth and manageable. I would recommend this product wholeheartedly as it is cheap, effective and smells gorgeous!

        The ingredients are:
        Aqua, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, EDTA, Hexyl Cinnamal, Sodium Chloride, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Propylene Glycol, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Citronellol, Magnesium Nitrate, Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit, Cocos Nucifera Extract, CI 42090, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Wont change your life, but will certainly change your hair!

          Buy this bottle of Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment and Shine Conditioner, and you will turn into a goddess, and have everything you ever dreamed off.....men will fall at your feet, you will experience sedction and pleasure...Oh Come on, you did not really think that?

          But what it WILL do is give you gorgeous, silky soft smooth hair! I ahev always suffered from dry hair, and my fellow sufferers will know, you are forever looking for something to hydrate your grassy strands into the soft silky strands you see on every head in Hollywood.

          This conditioner is made of coconut and orchid extracts, and although it has a lovely smell, it is not an overwhelmingly strong coconut smell. The conditioner it self, is a light blue creamy formula.

          After you have washed your hair (preferably with the matching shampoo), pour out a generous amount on your hand,s and spread it through your damp hair. Leave it on for a good 2 minutes to allow it to really absorb deep inot the hair shaft, and then rinse it with water. I suggest always finishing off with a cold rinse, as it closes the hair shaft, and seals the moisture.

          It retails for approximately £2.89 for a 400ml bottle, which I feel is reasonable, as it does whta it is supposed to.

          This product really does leave my hair amazingly soft, easy to detangle, without any static, and really silky. As I am serial experimenter, and always trying out new products, I have tried other conditioners, but this is one of the ones I keep coming back to, and can certainly recommend to my fellow grass-heads!

            A fantastic hair conditioner that really works

            Initially I was drawn to the Clairol Herbal Essences range of hair conditioners through their seductive adverts preceding Desperate Housewives. Normally advertisements have little effect on my purchasing decisions. In fact, I usually press the mute button in defiance when adverts blatantly interrupt my TV programme. However, something about these adverts, with those women erupting into ecstatic convulsions while using Clairol Herbal Essences, had a positive influence over me.

            I was further persuaded by the Clairol name. I thought Clairol might be a wise choice because I use the Clairol hair colours and have done for years. Included in the box along with the colouring lotion is a little tube of Clairol conditioner. This conditioner works better than anything else I've ever tried, so much so that one day, over 10 years ago, I decided to buy the conditioner it's own.
            It was a fruitless search. I couldn't find the conditioner anywhere. I duly gave Clairol a ring and explained my predicament. The unhelpful reply was "Oh, we only supply that conditioner with the hair colour. We can't sell it separately because it's too strong!" Wonderful!

            When I first purchased a conditioner in the Clairol Herbal Essences range, I was hoping it would in some way resemble the quality of the little tubes that accompany the hair colours. I wasn't disappointed. Since then I've been steadily working my way through the entire range of Herbal Essences Conditioners. This review is based on the bottle I'm currently using which is one of the Fruit Fusions range: Herbal Essences Fruit Fusions Coconut and Hawaiian Hibiscus.

            ~~~The Packaging~~~

            This conditioner is specifically for dry and damaged hair and is labelled 'deep nourishment and shine'. It comes in an eye catching rectangular shaped blue bottle and the conditioner inside matches it. I love the way manufacturers are designing their bottles to match the colour of the contents inside. It has an easy flip up lid which can also be unscrewed completely. This is particularly useful when you're nearing the end of the bottle and want to use up the dregs in the bottom. By unscrewing the lid you can add some water, mix it up and hey presto, another whole application. OK, that may be a bit miserly, but we're in a recession here!

            ~~~The Contents~~~

            As mentioned previously, the colour of this particular conditioner is blue, a slightly paler shade than the bottle though. The crème conditioner has a very thick consistency which will sit well in the palm of your hand without running off. Its smell is extremely fragrant and very pleasant. The coconut aroma is certainly the more subtle of smells in this concoction. The stronger smell is something else which I presume is the Hawaiian hibiscus. Not having the fortune to have made the acquaintance with the said flower, I can't confirm whether this is what I can smell. But it is very nice and it lingers on your locks long after it's rinsed out.

            ~~~The Application~~~

            The instructions simply recommend you smooth it through wet hair and 'enjoy the renewing fragrance.' I pile loads of the stuff onto my hair so it's practically dripping off. I read somewhere once that smothering colour damaged and dry hair in conditioner is the best solution. The instructions are a bit vague regarding how long you should leave it on, instead telling you to rinse it off when you're ready. Generally I put the conditioner on and leave it while I do my other shower stuff. Since it's Herbal Essences I'm using, the intoxicating fragrance can send me into the throws of ecstasy and before I know it I'm crying 'yes, yes, oooh yes!'. Before too long my husband will be hammering on the door demanding to know what's going on in there without him!

            ~~~The Results~~~

            I can't praise it enough. This conditioner is one of the best for dry or damaged hair. It works every bit as well as those little tubes that come with the hair colour so I'm delighted. To be honest, I can't really say that one variety of Herbal Essences conditioner works any better than any other, the only difference being the fragrance. They all leave my hair feeling smooth and silky and easy to comb out. My hair always smells fantastic and this is further confirmed by remarks made by the kids and hubby.

            ~~~Availability and Price~~~

            Luckily for me this conditioner seems to be offered as a BOGOF very frequently in chemists and supermarkets, so I always stock up. BOGOF stands for 'buy one get one free' by the way. I'm not being patronising here, I'm sure you are familiar with the term. I only mention this because until yesterday I thought everyone knew what BOGOF stood for. However, when using this word yesterday in a conversation with my husband, I was greeted with a blank stare while he was trying to work out what sort of insult I'd just aimed his way.

            The full price is generally around £2.98 for a 400ml bottle.

            ~~~The HUGE list of Ingredients~~~ (Probably not very green but the bottle is recyclable)

            Aqua, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, EDTA, Hexyl Cinnamal, Sodium Chloride, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Propylene Glycol, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Citronellol, Magnesium Nitrate, Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit, Cocos Nucifera Extract, CI 42090, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Magnesium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.

            Many thanks for reading if you made it this far.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              very nice conditioner for a very reasonable price!

              This herbal essences conditioner comes in 2 different size bottles, you can either get the travel size 250ml or the large 400ml bottle. I always opt for the large bottle because I've got loads of long and quite thick bleach blonde hair to condition and I like to use loads.

              So, this conditioner is a blue one just like the shampoo, this is actually a lighter blue, kind of like a baby blue, thick and creamy product. It feels quite thick (some conditioners are quite liquidy but this one is pretty thick, but that is because it's meant for dry and brittle hair). This conditioner smells really exotic; it has a lovely fresh coconut and fruity scent that lingers in your hair until you wash it out next or you've been out somewhere where a more pungent scent has taken over like cigarettes or food LOL.

              I use this conditioner right after I've shampooed twice and rinsed thoroughly, it applies nicely and spreads in a nice, thick, even layer all over the hair. You get the best results when you leave it in for at least 2 minutes, as this will give it enough time to soak in and coat the hair properly. Make sure that you rinse this out properly, as it will make the hair sticky and oily looking when you accidentally leave some in.

              I find that my hair is easy and smooth enough to comb through lightly before I blow-dry it. Of course, comb very carefully as wet hair is a lot more brittle and you don't want to break and snag it.

              The result after blow-drying the hair is awesome, the hair is very soft, smooth and shiny and smells beautiful.
              I'd recommend this conditioner to people with brittle or damaged hair as this will defiantly make it easier to manage and look shiny and healthy. I think this is being sold in the shops from about 2 pounds to 2.80, it just depends where you shop and often you can find them for buy one get one free or some other kind of discount offer.

              Great value with great results.

              Herbal Essences is a favourite after using many shampoos! I have very thick hair which gets oily quite quickly so I need something light, however you often get the feeling the shampoo isn't working when it's light- with this however it's always squeaky clean for a day and a bit at least even using the conditioner. My hair is also silky and managable after use, which is a huge advantage- ok it might not look as good as on the adverts but its half way there. Something to note here is that the conditioner doesn't weigh your hair down, as some do, it's light and helps your hair retain it's bounce! All the varieties come with a strong, fruity fragrance, and although this might not suit all people it's pleasant without being overpowering. It's a well established brand with a brilliant price and I believe it's often overlooked, I truly think it's better than those £5.99 higher end shampoos.

              A brilliant inbetween conditioner

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
              Herbal Essences
              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

              Herbal Essences is made by Clairol and subsequently owned by Procter & Gamble UK. Herbal Essences are a well known and reputable hair care brand that have a large range of shampoos, conditioners and hair colours. They are well known for their adverts, of a girl over enjoying herself due to the wonderful aroma of the Herbal Essences shampoos and conditioners. Herbal Essences is constantly winning awards, it recently won the 2007 Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards for best conditioner, which it has every year since 2004.

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
              Deep Nourishment and Shine Conditioner
              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

              Deep Nourishment and Shine is for dry and damaged hair. It is one of the new Fruit and Fusions range from Herbal Essences, although it has been around for at least a year. Others in that category are Citrus Lift for Fine Hair, Brilliant Shine for Normal Hair and Vivacious Colour for Coloured Hair. Deep Nourishment and Shine contains coconut and hawaiian hibiscus extracts. Deep Nourishment and Shine Conditioner is designed to treat and smooth your hair after using the Deep Nourishment and Shine Shampoo to moisturise your hair from root to tip to revive its shine.

              What Herbal Essences say - 'Revive the shine of your hair with Deep Nourishment and Shine. Immerse yourself in fragrant shampoos and conditioners which will leave your hair replenished'.

              ~~~~~~~~~~~
              Use & Effects
              ~~~~~~~~~~~

              The bottle is a paler blue than the shampoo and is purely one colour. The conditioner is also pale blue, and its consistensy is that of a thick and rich cream. When it's on your hands you can immediately feel that it is very moisturising. The bottle has a flip cap, which is easy to open and shut but the bottle cap did just break off one day so I have to make sure I keep it upright otherwise it will just tip out.

              To use, first shampoo your hair twice and I would recommend using this along side with the matching shampoo. After you have shampooed and rinsed that out, smooth this conditioner through wet hair then rinse out after about 2 minutes. I only use this conditioner when I use this shampoo, as they really do work together and better than using other products with them. You do need to use quite a large amount of the conditioner as your hair really absorbs it. I have fairly long hair so would use more than someone with shorter hair but I still think to give it the deep nourishment that is needed you need quite a bit. It easily rinses out of your hair and doesn't leave you with a residue.

              One thing you immediately notice with this conditioner, as with all Herbal Essences products, the smell is delicious. This one is supposed to have the fragrance of coconut, but I really don't smell that, to me this smells lovely and fruity. This really does make you feel how the adverts describe it! After washing and drying your hair, and even using products on, you can still clearly smell the gorgeous aroma of this conditioner and you can continue to smell it even the next day, just as fresh as it was immediately after washing it. It makes your hair feel really clean, knowing that it smells so lush.

              The natural ingredients this conditioner contains are the same as the shampoo, they are Hibiscus Rose Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit and Cocos Nucifera Extract. These are what gives it it's wonderful natural aroma. Hibiscus Rose Extract is a natural moisturising ingredient for replenishing nutrients. Vanilla Planifolia Fruit has high vanilla content, it is used a lot for vanilla flavouring, I think if anything this is probably what you can smell the most in the conditioner, and I love the smell of Vanilla. It is mainly used as a fragrance in this conditioner but is an essential oil so is nourishing. Cocos Nucifera Extract is Coconut Extract which is nutrient rich and conditions the hair and skin and is also for its natural scent.

              This conditioner is recommended for damaged and dry hair, but I wouldn't recommend it for dry scalps, although it doesn't make it any worse, it doesn't help either and if you have a dry scalp there are better shampoos you can use that do actually help a dry scalp. I have ecezma in my hair line, this doesn't irritate it at all, it doesn't soothe it but doesn't make it any worse.

              When you rinse this out of your hair, you immediately feel a difference. To me, my hair seemed more dry than it was before. I then made the mistake of applying even more conditioner to counteract this, but there was no need. That feeling was just my hair being really clean, it wasn't dry at all. I then just left it one time, shampooed it twice and rinsed it out, then applied a normal amount of conditioner and it was so soft, clean and nourished, not at all dry. So don't make the same mistake I did by trying to apply more conditioner as you really don't need to.

              Once you have dryed your hair, if is full of life. It's bouncy, clean and looks healthy. You are able to style it and the style stays. It doesn't look dull and lifeless. It feels so soft and you can definately notice that it has smoothed the ends of your hair and given it much more life and depth. The hair isn't knotty and doesn't knot up easily once it is dry. Your hair is left looking silky without looking too shiney and greasy. One thing that I do notice that once I have removed the towel from my head and go to brush through my hair it is slightly knottier than usual and I find it a bit difficult to comb through. I always use a styling spray so this helps the knottiness and eases my brush through. When I curl my hair or straighten it afterwards, the style sticks but it doesn't flatten your hair. This conditioner doesn't leave your hair with a greasy residue to leave it feeling overloaded or greasy, but I would only recommend, as with the shampoo using this as an inbetween conditioner, otherwise your hair gets too used to it and kind of rejects the moisture and doesn't absorb it, leaving your hair feeling worse than before. If you use a different product inbetween then you give your hair a rest from the usual product and it will work a lot better. Your hair appears smoother and healthier and split ends appear less obvious and you are not left with fly away straggly ends. It doesn't make your hair any shinier than it is but does give you deep nourishment and a deep clean. The shampoo and conditioner enhances my blonde colour, it doesn't fade it or make it look orange. It makes the best of my colour and I feel it would do this for all colours.

              I find a 400ml bottle of this will last me about a year, with weekly to two weekly use, so for the money, that's certainly not bad. You do need to use quite a generous amount but it does last.

              I purchased mine from Sainsbury's in a 2 for 1 offer when I was looking to purchase a cheaper shampoo and conditioner than my usual one, which is about £8-10. I brought this and the shampoo for £2.50. This can be purchased from Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, Asda and Boots.

              This is a good conditioner, it smoothes your hair without leaving it feel overburdened or greasy. I would however only recommend it for a conditioner to be used inbetween using your usual conditioner. For the price, it's not a bad conditioner, but as I said, only for an inbetweener.

                I bought this conditioner a while back to go with the deep nourishment and shine shampoo, which I have also reviewed. The main reason I chose the Deep Nourishment and Shine shampoo over other fragrances in the range, is that it is coconut and Hawaiian hibiscus fragrance and I love the smell of coconut as it reminds me of summer.

                ~About the conditioner~

                This is for dry and damaged hair, which unfortunately are both categories which my hair falls into. It promises that it will restore the shine to your hair and moisturise from root to tip.

                ~Packaging~

                I don't think the conditioner bottle is as nice as the shampoo bottle. It is a light blue in colour, and you cant see through it which means you don't know how much you have left. Although it still has the logo featuring two halves of a coconut on the front, I don't think it looks as summery as the shampoo bottle.

                ~Using it~

                The conditioner is a light blue colour, similar to the colour of the bottle it comes in. It has the same beautiful fragrance as the shampoo - a tropical coconut smell with a slight floral twist, which I assume is the Hawaiian hibiscus.

                The conditioner is not particularly thick, but not watery either - the consistency is somewhere in the middle. Only a relatively small amount is needed to coat the hair. It doesn't specify on the bottle how long to leave the conditioner on - it says 'enjoy the fragrance and rinse when ready' which is a bit vague! I tend to leave it on about a minute, and it rinses away easily.

                ~Results~

                This definitely leaves my hair feeling soft after use and not as dry as it previously was, which is a bonus. My hair is generally quite frizzy, and although this leaves it soft, the frizz isn't too bad compared to how it normally is, and it was detangled, which is good as it prevents further damage when brushing. The lovely smell stays on the hair for some time after use, which is a bonus too.

                As for adding shine, I have not particularly noticed any difference since beginning to use this.

                ~Price~

                This costs £2.98 for a 400ml bottle, or £1.80 for 200ml from Boots, but prices will differ slightly depending on where you shop.

                ~Conclusion~

                This is a nice conditioner for everyday use - I love the smell, and it did make my hair feel lovely and soft. I didn't think that it made much difference to the appearance of my hair, but otherwise it was good.
