      Disadvantages

      Nice if you can work out which parts of your hair its suits

      The Herbal Essence range includes a pleasing variety of both shampoos and conditioners, which are widely used and well known. I have been using many of the range of products this past year or so, after some lucky purchases when the range was reduced to between 87p to 37p.

      I paid a fantastic low price of just 44p per bottle, for the Clairol Clairol Herbal Essences Fruit Fusions Citrus Lift Conditioners that I bought. I bought them in the larger 400ml size as that was the only size they had and 44p per 400ml bottle seemed like a bargain.

      **********************************************************
      I have used the Herbal Essences Fruit Fusions Citrus Lift Conditioner in a number of different combinations with various other shampoos from the Herbal Essence range. Results have been just 'ok', although better than with some of the Herbal Essence conditioners, which have left my hair feeling heavy and greasy.

      I feel that this conditioner is a very thick and creamy consistency and can weigh down the hair is you use too much of it. The conditioner is a vivid mango / peachy coloured creamy mix and smelsl lovely and fruity and soft.

      To me it smells of peach and mango, but I have the empty bottle here and its telling me it contains the following: Tangerine, Lemon Grass, Aloe Vera extracts, but its still smelling of peachy mango to my nose.

      **********************************************************
      Either way I like the fruity blend used and thats part of the Herbal Essence branding really. After all these products are marketed as being fresh fruity and floral products and thats just what they are!

      I would say that to get best results from this, you need to use it sparingly near the roots of your hair and more generously towards the ends. That way any risk of over conditioning can be minimized. I have found that if I don't follow that procedure that my hair feels heavy and oily the next day which can so easily be avoided with a little extra care.

      **********************************************************
      The bottle that the Fruit Fusions Citrus Lift Conditioner comes in is a matt orangey/ peachy shade. Unlike the shampoo bottles of old, which were see through plastic, the conditioners in the range all come in matt, but brightly coloured bottles. The lid once again is a flip top lid and is in a shade of deep dark green.

      I feel that the variation of clear and matt bottles, was used to make the conditioner stand out from the shampoos when on the shelves in store. Perhaps to avoid confusion when using both a conditioner and a shampoo of the same type too.

      **********************************************************
      My pack says that the conditioner was 'blossoming into a new uplifting volume product' and is suitable for fine to normal hair. I do feel that fine hair would be over powered by too much of this and would recommend it for thicker hair.

      My 400ml bottle was a bit too big to stand well in the shower and so I took to decanting it into some of the smaller 200ml empty shampoo bottles I had. This made them a better, more useable size in my opinion. However I am not knocking the fact that I got 400mls of product for so little cash, as they have lasted me ages now.

      **********************************************************
      I can't say I have found the conditioner to be all that good at uplifting any thing as such and as I say it can make your hair feel heavy, if used to close to the roots.

      I did like using it and the smell was lovely, but it took a while for me to get the balance of how much to use and also where to place the conditioner on the hair to get best results.

      Over all I feel I want to give this a 3 star rating as you cannot just slap it on equally all over your hair. For decent results you need to adjust the amount of product used depending on which part of your hair you are using it on.

        Love it!

        This is a lovely conditioner from Herbal Essences.

        The packaging looks quite good but as with the shampoo the lid's quite flimsy and easily broken. It comes in an orangey coloured bottle which isn't see through, whereas the shampoo bottle is see through so you can tell them apart easily.

        It has organic botanicals in it, including mandarin, orange, lemongrass, tangerine and aloe vera, so just like the matching shampoo it has a gorgeous uplifting citrussy scent.

        It's fairly runny and thin in consistency as conditioners go, but it's nice and creamy and it works easily through the hair. It feels really smooth and silky, but it rinses out fairly easily unlike some conditioners.

        It's supposed to compliment the shampoo which volumises the hair, by giving weightless nourishment, and i think it does do this. It makes my hair feel really silky and smooth, but without feeling weighed down, whcih is often a problem with fine hair. It smoothes down flyaways and any frizz, and leaves my hair feeling perfectly moisturised and nourished, and looking great.

        My hair still feels nice and light and bouncy after using this, but I don't use it on my roots as this can make them get greasy too quickly, but that's the case with all conditioners not just this one.

        It costs around £3 for a 400ml bottle or £2 for a 200ml bottle, the larger one is obviously better value. The conditioner seems to last a fair bit longer than the shampoo as I don't need to use as much per wash, and it works out as good value.
