Disadvantages: Doesn't compliment my bathroom decor
- Why I Bought -
For the last couple of years I purchased shampoo and conditioner from the Alberto Balsam brand as I could usually get it for £1 a bottle. However I have recently been trying shampoos and conditioners from the Palmolive range as I have found them excellent quality and they are available in Poundland. This review will focus on the Palmolive Naturals Brilliant Colour Pomegranate and Jojoba Oil Conditioner.
- The Packaging -
The Silky Shine Effect conditioner comes in a bright red, curved, thick plastic bottle. The red shade is vibrant but not garish. The plastic has a bit of a shine to it which makes it look like a good quality item. At the bottom there is a cap lid which is easy to open/close. I am always wary of bottles that open at the bottom but I haven't had any problems with leaking. The opening of the bottle is quite small so a controlled about of conditioner is delivered when the bottle is squeezed. I like that the bottom of the bottle is quite narrow because it means it fits nicely on the edge of my bath when I'm using it. On the front of the bottle is the Palmolive logo, the name of the conditioner, that it is for coloured hair and flavoured with pomegranate and jojoba oil. There is a picture of a pomegranate which nicely compliments the name and scent. On the back there is a list of ingredients and a bit of information about the conditioner. I think the bottle makes it look like it cost more than £1, it looks for like it cost £2-3 to me. I think the bottle is attractive enough for a conditioner, the only downside is that it doesn't really go with my cream and beige bathroom but that doesn't bother me too much. I like my shampoo and conditioner to match and the shampoo in the same range does have a matching bottle.
- Conditioning -
The conditioner is pearly white in colour and I would describe it as having a medium to thick consistency. Even before applying it to my hair I could tell there was a difference in quality to the conditioner I had used previously. It feels really creamy and luxurious in my hand and this feels really nice when it is applied to my hair. When I ran my hands down my hair to rub in the conditioner my hair felt amazingly silky and I was left hoping my hair would continue to feel like this after I had washed it off. The smell is not quite as strong as the shampoo version but I would describe the smell as sweet and fruity. I'm not sure I could pick out the pomegranate and jojoba oil but I would say it smells of warm berries which is lovely. It is fairly easy to wash off the conditioner and it leaves my hair feeling thoroughly cleaned and fresh. I always use it in combination with the shampoo from the same range.
- The Results -
It is easy to brush through my long hair after using this and I would say my hair feels really silky and moisturised. When dried I prefer the appearance of my hair as it looks sleeker and smoother than it had previously with other conditioners. This is a real benefit for me as I don't like to straighten and style my hair everyday so it is great if my hair can look good 'o naturelle'. As I have some colour in my hair I'm sure it needs the extra moisture that this conditioner provides. The shine that this gives actually makes it not so obvious that my hair is in desperate need of being re-dyed! The smell lingers on my hair for up to two days which is when I would usually wash my hair again anyway. As I also use the shampoo from the same range it is hard to say if the results are down to the shampoo, conditioner or both but overall I am very happy with the results.
- Priced Availability -
I have to say I don't think I have seen this conditioner anywhere except Poundland but as they always seem to have a decent stock of it in my local branch this is fine for me. Of course it costs only £1 which for 300mls is an absolute bargain as in my opinion it achieves the same results as conditioners that cost £2-3.
- Would I Recommend? -
I would certainly recommend this conditioner as I have been really pleased with the results when used in combination with the shampoo. I feel my hair is silky soft, moisturised and looks great. It has livened up my hair that is in need of dying again. I will definitely continue to stock up on this in Poundland.
Summary: A brilliant affordable conditioner to liven up coloured hair
