“ Brand: Katie Price / Type: Conditioner „
I was pleasantly surprise, the bottles looked so pretty i thought they would be rubbish, i couldn't believe the results my hair was lovely and shiny, soft its even nicer than when i pay a fortune at hairdressers. Trust me i have spent a fortune on hairproducts in the past but i am definitely going to fill my cupboard up with these. well impressed. When i read some reviews i think ok how much u getting for that? And thought its all set up but am not getting paid am just well impressed.Absolutely love it.
Recently I found myself purchasing a shampoo and conditioner from the Katie Price collection.
Now to make myself clear I do not like the woman. At all.
So what made me line her pockets with my hard earned cash (well hubby's!)?
A friend of mine had tried both the shampoo and conditioner and raved about how soft and clean her hair felt.
I was dubious at first, but after seeing both at a reasonable £1.49 each I thought it was worth trying..
After being very impressed with the shampoo (see separate review) I wondered if the conditioner would be as good..?
The conditioner comes in a cylindrical shaped bottle, which is almost identical in appearance to the shampoo, the only slight difference is the colour.
The conditioner bottle is a slightly paler pink and is more candy floss coloured than the duskier pink used on the shampoo bottle.
At the risk of sounding shallow; the bottles are incredibly pretty and very girlie looking..it doesn't make me like Katie anymore though!
Katie bashing aside, onto how the conditioner actually worked on my hair..
After accessing the conditioner from the easy push down lid I squeezed a blob the size of a 50 pence piece onto the palm of my hand.
I proceeded to apply all over my hair and followed by combing through and leaving for a few minutes.
The conditioner itself is white and opaque which for some reason I expected it to be a pink colour to match the tone of the packaging.
The consistency is thinner than I imagined, but not runny, and the '50p' size applied seemed to be just the right amount for my hair type and length.
The scent is just as intoxicating as the shampoo and again features extracts of lemon, lime,grapefruit and oranges.
It's not an overpowering scent, and to be perfectly honest I am not a fan of citrus fragrances but this is subtle and really delicious.
After rinsing my first thoughts were that the conditioner left my hair feeling smooth and soft - this was whilst it was still wet.
On towel drying my hair it didn't feel tangled, which was a nice change as no matter which brand of conditioners I use there are always some tangles - with this hair seemed separated immediately and I was becoming more and more impressed with this product.
On styling my hair in the usual way I noticed it felt light and not weighed down like some conditioners can leave it feeling. I have medium length straight hair which sometimes can be hard to style if a conditioner is 'heavy' but this doesn't have this effect at all.
So is it worth recommending?~
*Celebrity* name aside, this is one of the best (shampoos and) conditioners that I have ever used. I am a big fan of Aussie products and I have to say this left my hair in slightly better condition!
The delicate citrus fragrance lingered for a long time - in fact I could still detect it the following day whilst brushing my hair.
I wash my hair every second day when normally it looks a little 'tatty' so wear it tied up on the second day. After using this for 2 weeks now I've noticed it keeps it looking sleeker and I have not had to resort to tying it back for the sake of it.
For £1.49 for a 250ml bottle I feel like I got a complete bargain and will most definitely buy this again in the future.
Though as I have mentioned many (many,many) times I do not like Katie Price the person I'm afraid to say I like the Katie Price hair care range..
