“ Brand: Clairol / Type: Conditioner „
I have always had long hair and recently got it cut to just below my shoulders, which although for most people is not short, for me this is very short (used to be down to my bum!).
Once I cut my hair I noticed that usually polker straight hair now had a slight natural wave to it. I have always wanted curly or very wavy hair and decided to try a few products to see if I could encourage the waves and maybe even get a slight curl to the hair for a bit more glamour.
I don't even want to think about how money I have spent recently on products to get my hair more wavy, but it is certainly quite a bit! Fainally I decided to ditch all the dtyling products which were leaving my hair looking stuck together and stiff and thought I'd give some curl enhancing shampoos and conditioners a try.
This was the first brand I tried. I thought I'd start with the cheaper ones and work up, rather than the other way as I had already spent so much on products.
I brought the shampoo and conditioner and have used them quite a few times now (about a quater from each bottle). I got them when they were on special offer so both cost me about £4, which I think is pretty good compared to some brands. The product is purple in colour and has a light floral fragrance to it.
You need a little more product than some brands I have tried, but it still works out very cheap to use and goes a long way.
I have have fount that although it doesn't leave me with ringlet curls (not that I expected it to!) my natural waves are enhanced by it. If I leave it to dry naturally I get a slight wave, or if I want more defined waved I use a diffuser dryer. It leaves my hair with a lovely healthy shine and bounce to it too.
Definately worth a go!
When it comes to my hair it's weird to say the least. I style it straight but it is naturally curvy/wavy an so when I spotted this particular conditioner and having tried and tested and rather loved a few Herbal Essences products in the past I couldn't wait to give this a go!
400ml slightly curved purple but transparent bottle and it has a flip-top lid to the top of it. On the front of the bottle I am told that it is Herbal Essences It's a curl thing, Curls and waves conditioner, 'French lavender & jade plant extracts' and that it's for curly & wavy hair. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product the size is stated, I'm given directions for use and contact details for the manufacturer are given. It's a nice enough bottle and easy to handle etc.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Stated On The Back Of The Bottle:
Curls & Waves conditioner
Quench your curls and waves with my conditioner.
My nourishing formula, with French lavender and jade plant extracts, fights the frizz and gives you shiny, manageable spirals that bounce with joy.
Want to twist again? Use me together with my shampoo.
Well all you do of course is shampoo your hair and rinse it thoroughly of course. Then when that is done take a small blob of this creamy feeling light lilac conditioner that has a lovely well rounded smell of lavender to it and gently massage it into an all over the hair.
It easily and smoothly goes into the hair without feeling greasy and releases a wonderful fragrance and then after a couple of minutes you simply rinse it off and that's real easy to do!
Then all your left to do of course is style your hair and this fragrance stays put on the hair making it feel fresh, it is smooth and soft and that is that!
However sadly I found that this didn't do very much for my hair at all. I felt it defined what I had already without weighing it down but it didn't really define that too much. I think it helped keep frizz at bay though it won't make your curls more type of thing!
It's an ok conditioner but really nothing special really and at about £3.49 a bottle (in all good chemists and supermarkets) I did feel it was a bit of a let own though on the plus side it did smell lovely an make my hair shinier than usual!
