“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Conditioner / Suitable for: dry hair „
I bought my bottle of this conditioner about a month ago. I bought it mainly because it was pretty cheap but also because I love the smell of coconut so the fact that it is coconut scented really appealed to me - I had a sneaky sniff of it in while I was in the shop and loved the smell!
I paid £1.25 for the 1 litre bottle which is absolutely amazing value and after a month of using it 2-3 times a week I still have well over half a bottle left. The bottle is nicely designed and although it is bulky it is easy to get the product out as it has a pump lid which I think is a great idea & very practical as it means I do not have to try and pick up the bulky bottle with wet hands!
The great thing about this conditioner is that because it is so thick I don't need very much of it at all to cover all of my shoulder length hair so a bottle lasts for ages! Although the conditioner is thick, it doesn't feel too heavy and it spreads through my hair really easily as it has a lovely smooth consistency.
The smell is lovely and it smells like fresh coconut. It is a girly, slightly sweet and creamy scent which doesn't smell cheap or artificial at all! It lingers in my hair for a good couple of days after I've used it too which keeps it smelling nice and fresh. The only disadvantage that I can think of is that it isn't quite as easy to rinse out of my hair as most of the other conditioners I've used and I need to spend time rinsing it to get it all out.
Once I've rinsed it all out my hair feels smooth and soft and once I've dried it it feels lovely and silky and it even has a little more volume! I have dry hair and this conditioner leaves it feeling soft and healthy and I've had compliments from my fiancé and one of my friends on how shiny my hair looks since using this. It is just as good as the more expensive brands of conditioner and I will definitely be re-purchasing this conditioner when I have used all of my current bottle of it up.
All in all I am really pleased with this conditioner as it is great quality and excellent value. I highly recommend it and I am going to give it a well deserved five out of five stars.
I always use a hair conditioner on my hair after I have washed it, as I like my hair in a good condition and I like it too feel tangle free and nice and soft, ready to use my hair styling products on it and to help it keep in a good condition and not feel all dry etc.
I actually do not have such a dry hair but I absolutely love any hair products or beauty products that contain Coconut as I absolutely love the smell and this one is one that my mum gave me recently and it is from Sainsburys, my mum was having a clear out with some of her hair conditioners etc and she thought I would like it as she was going to throw it away and thought I could make some use of it, she told me she had bought it a long time ago and so I do not know how much it actually was price for, but I thought I would take it and use it to see how it felt on my hair.
It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip lid, it is a nice pearly white liquid and the texture of it is a beautifully soft one, it has a very nice coconut fragrance to it and it smells divine in my opinion, and I just love it on my hair.
Only a little is needed with this one as the quality is very good and it is a nice thickness and I just place a little in my hand and massage it into my hair and I can feel it working immediately it is worked into the hair, my hair feels soft before I have even rinsed it from my hair and it is very easy to rinse and my hair feels beautifully soft when towelled dry and it is very easy to brush or comb afterwards and it is definitely tangle free with this one.
This conditioner worked well after the length of time my mum probable had it in her bathroom and conditioners do have a long shelf life, when not opened and this one had not been tried or tested by my mum and so it was just as the day she bought it and it worked perfectly fine on my hair.
The texture is a very good one, it is extremely soft and it is not at all runny in my opinion, it is quite thick and so very little is needed, my hair did smell of coconut after use and I do not mind that at all, and my hair felt very clean and fresh too.
I recommend this one as I found it very good and I found it did not leave my hair too soft I could not manage it once I had place my hair styling product on it.
A lovely conditoner that works a treat and I recommend it highly.
So glad my mum did not throw this one in the bin as I am very pleased with the results for my hair.
I give it 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my reviews.
I tend to spend quite a bit on my shampoo, suffering from a little bit of the dreaded dandruff if I don't buy an expensive anti dandruff shampoo. This means that I try to economise on my conditioner, so the Sainsbury's own brand conditioner at a mere 42 pence per bottle was just perfect. I do have long thick hair though, so I really need a conditioner that detangles, re-conditions hair, and leaves it feeling all smooth and silky after you have washed it out. This product works on all three counts, and far out performs any of the other cheap conditioners that I have used, which tend to be really thin, and just don't seem to moisturise my hair at all. The coconut oils in the conditioner are also really good for the hair, and they smell amazing too. it is one of those really nice scents that you can smell all day long. They do a range of shampoos as well, which I am sure would combine very well with the conditioner and are also cheap and cheerful. The packaging is nice, and doesn't look too cheap, it is easy to get all of the conditioner out of the bottle, and at 300ml a bottle usually lasts me about a month. If you are not too precious about what brand of shampoo you use, this is an excellent product that will help you to save the pennies, and will also leave your hair feeling really looked after, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
I was trying to save a few pennies on the weekly shop when I came to the hair care aisle to get shampoo and conditioner. I would usually buy Herbal Essences or Pantene, both of which are fairly expensive. While scanning the shelves, I noticed a Sainsbury's own range of shampoos and conditioners, which were a fraction of the price of my usual brands.
I decided to buy bottles of Sainsbury's coconut shampoo and conditioner. I love coconut, so this fragrance really appealed to me. The fragrance is fairly strong, and smells quite natural, which I really like.
This conditioner is designed for dry hair, and as I have quite dry frizzy hair, I was hoping it might tame my frizz, and leave it feeling softer and looking shiny. The instructions state it only needs to be left on for one minute, which is another bonus. I condition my hair every time I wash it, and I don't always have time for conditioners that need to be left on for five minutes or longer.
Having used the product, I am reasonably impressed with it. Sadly it didn't help tame my frizz, and left my hair looking really fluffy. However, it does leave my hair looking really shiny, and it does feel softer. The coconut scent lingers in my hair for a good few hours after use, which is delicious, and I feel it is an adequate all round conditioner.
A 300ml bottle of this conditione currently costs 53p, which I think is fantastic value for money, as my usual conditioner would easily cost over £3 for a bottle of the same size. I get through conditioner quite rapidly, as I have fairly long hair (it falls to the middle of my back), and I wash my hair on average every other day. I have found this bottle lasts my about 2 months, which makes it a real bargain.
The packaging lets the product down slightly- I know for 53p the quality of the packaging is going to be basic, but I have found the lid can be tricky to open, as the plastic is quite stiff, which makes it particularly fiddy to open when you've got wet hands. In addition, as has been mentioned in previous reviews, the shampoo and conditioner in Sainsbury's coconut range look very similar. As I can't wear my glasses in the shower, I end up having to squint at the labels to check which is which!
In summary I would definitely recommend this shampoo. It is not great for frizzy hair, but it is a good general conditioner that leaves my hair soft and shiny. It is really cheap, and for 53p I think it is really worth a try! I will definitely continue to buy this over my usual premium brands due to the massive difference in price.
I am a huge fan of coconut 'flavour' shampoo and conditioner. I usually use the Co-op own brand which retails around 70p per bottle. When I saw this selection at Sainsbury's, retailing at 40p for the conditioner (42p for the shampoo as I recall) I thought it was worth a go. It is the exact same size (300ml) and bottle shape, although the listed ingredients are slightly varied.
The coconut variety of this series is recommended for dry hair which suits me as my hair is quite thick and boisterous. It does seem to help and make a difference. I find that compared with value varieties of conditioner/no conditioner this is definitely superior, whilst compared to much more expensive brands I don't feel it is greatly inferior.
It is effective after 1minute which is helpful in the mornings when I am rushing to leave the house. It is easy to apply and I find giving my hair a splash of water after applied to the roots helps to make the product last longer as I can then working down to the tips without a second portion from the bottle.
The bottle lasts about two weeks for me, and my hair length is as my profile photograph shows (just past shoulder length). It is easy to use the whole product and for the final application from the bottle I pop a little water in and shake it around before application. This does not affect the productivity of the product.
This conditioner is not tested on animals and the packaging states that Sainsbury's fund research into alternative methods of testing. The scent is very 'coconut-ty' and this smell stays on my hair after blow drying and straightening - even with the use of other product. As I find the smell pleasing, for me this is a good thing. People often comment that my hair smells nice!
I'm not sure if it is a flaw of the product, or my dopey morning blur, or the series, but I have one little gripe. Not enough to dissuade my repeat purchase, but I have on a couple of occasions picked it up and used it before my shampoo as I thought it WAS the shampoo. Both shampoo and conditioner are white and the shading is not quite different enough. I now check the words on the bottle before use! Not a big enough problem to cause this product to lose a star though!
Ah, another day in student debt, another ridiculously cheap product to try!
Actually, I was fairly impressed by this conditioner, chosen because A, I really like anything with a coconut smell and B, let's face it, 40p for conditioner means you can't really go wrong. This product has a definate and rather nice coconut scent that actully stays in your hair once you've dried it, which is a very nice bonus.
In terms of product preformance it was pretty good. The gel itself is perhaps a little thin, but as long as you're careful when applying it there's no reason to buy a more expensive brand, this is definate value for money.
I've tried other value hair products in the past, but so far this one beats them in terms of actual conditioning power, I didn't notice any distinct diference in my hair than if I'd used one quadruple the price. An overlooked bargain I think, nab it before they up the price!
