John Frieda Conditioner
I thought that I would review this conditioner as I recently ran out of it and so had to use a general one that was knocking about in the bathroom. It is only then that I realised how good this conditioner is and how much I missed it.
What it is like and overall opinion.-
The conditioner is a creamy colour and is quite thick in consistency, so you only need a circle of about 2 to 3 cm diameter. The bottle states that it is paricularly good for colour treated or highlighted hair brunette hair.
I don't know if buying shampoo and conditioner by hair colour really makes a difference in particular, but this product is good and does it's job anyway.
It states that it has special illuminating properties - and contains cocoa bean and crushed pearls to help achieve this.
The bottle is one where you take the conditioner from the bottom and it has a cap that stops drips.
I leave it in my hair for a few minutes and then rinse out. It does take quite a bit until the water runs clear, but I take this to mean that the conditioner has clung to the hair and so must have done it's job.
I also use the corresponding shampoo and think this might contribute to the good effect that it has.
It has a kind of coconut smell, which reminds me of holidays and is very pleasant. It does last me a couple of months, even though I use it every couple of days.
My hair feels soft afterwards, but not unmanageable and I do get compliments about how shiny my hair is. I am not sure that it helps my colour to last particularly longer, but overall my hair looks healthy and feels good.
When I used a cheaper brand my hair felt dry and was difficult to comb through and so I will stick to this in future. I am not sure if you should swap from time to time, perhaps someone with more knowledge will come along and add their opinion.
I know that there are cheaper options, but for me spending a little bit more is worth it.
It costs around £4.50, but can often be found on 3 for 2 offers or 3 for £10 in Boots or Tesco. I usually stock up then.
I should also mention that not only is is available for different hair colours, but it is available for shades of a particular colour too. For example, mine is for Chocolate to Espresso.
Thanks for reading! Will also be published on Ciao.UK under the same username.
I have brown hair and initially I was quite dubious about the various ranges that came out for blonde/brunette hair.
My sister quickly became a fan of the Blonde version of this product and so brought me the Brunnette Ligth Refelcting conditioner.
My hair is quite dry and curly, so a good conditioner that moisturizes is really important to me and I'm quite fussy.
The smell of this conditioner is lovely, it really stays in your hair and you get wafts of it throughout the day which is definitely a positive. The texture is quite smooth and thick which is good as it means a little goes a long way.
Personally it left my hair a little greasy, which is unusual as my hair is rarely greasy.
I find the 'light reflecting' claims a little ambiguous as my hair looks shiny without this conditioner. In it's defence your hair looks in good condition and so it is great.
Overall, for me it is slightly too greasy but smells great so is good for use occasionally.
