“ Brand: Sainsbury's / 300ml. / Type: Conditioner „
After trying the coconut conditioner from Sainsbury's own brand of hair care products and been really impressed with the quality of it, I decided to try the tea tree conditioner. I paid just £1.50 (full retail price) for the 1 litre bottle, which is much cheaper than a majority of other brands of conditioner.
The conditioner comes in a big, very bulky bottle which would be a disadvantage usually but seeing as I don't need to pick it up due to the pump dispenser I don't find the bulkiness an issue. The appearance of the bottle is extremely basic and minimalistic and in my opinion it will appeal to men as well as women. The conditioner is very easy to dispense from the bottle and the dispenser never gets clogged or anything as the conditioner has a smooth, thin consistency.
The conditioner itself is a light shade of green. The consistency of it isn't too bad - a little runny but not so much so that it makes it messy or awkward to apply, however it doesn't feel rich or luxurious or creamy, however for the price I guess this is to be expected. When applying the conditioner I need to really work it into my hair else it will all blob up and it doesn't spread through my hair too well.
Once it's on my hair I am able to smell the conditioner. It doesn't smell very much like tea tree, but it does have a slight hint of tea tree to it. The smell is very artificial and a little sickly, but luckily the smell is quite subtle and it doesn't linger in my hair for very long. Once I've washed the conditioner out my hair feels dry and not at all silky or smooth, it feels horrible! It is awkward to brush afterwards as it goes all knotty for some reason after using this and it actually makes my hair look quite dried out and it doesn't make it look shinier or anything.
I think this is probably because it is aimed at people who have oily hair, which I didn't realise until I read the bottle properly. I have dry hair and will not be repurchasing this as it really didn't have a very good effect in the look or feel of my hair, however my fiancé (who has normal hair - not greasy or dry) uses this as his main conditioner and his hair and beard are beautifully soft so obviously it works okay for some hair types and not others!
My hair is generally just something that hangs there on my head at present and so I will use whatever products I can buy cheap or get given as beggars can't be choosers can they!
This tea tree conditioner comes provided in a small bottle which is the same as all the products in the standard Sainsburys shampoo & conditioner ranges so if you don't pay close enough attention it can be easy enough to mix up the shampoo or conditioner in a range. The shampoo and conditioner in the ranges are designed to be used together (so they say anyway) and this is often how I use these as I always find the results to be satisfactory.
The price of this conditioner is 52p for a 300ml bottle of conditioner. The bottle is made of plastic so can be recycled once empty as long as it is thoroughly washed out. The conditioner has a fairly thick consistency to it and when the bottle is squeezed it pours out through a fairly small spout so that you don't get too much and there isn't too much wastage at all.
I have bra strap length hair at present (well, a tad longer now I'm really looking at it) and I find that a 50p sized dollop of this conditioner is enough to be seperated and dabbed on my fingers and then run through my hair. The conditioner works well through the hair and while it has a fairly strong tea tree scent to it I don't find this too overwhelming at all and it doesn't irritate my sometimes too sensitive scalp which is all I could ask for from a conditioner really. The conditioner does leave my hair feeling lovely and soft and smooth and relatively tangle free and while the tea tree scent does not linger on my hair too much it did not pick up any bad scents either in the two days between washes so I was pleased with that.
The quality of this condition is very reasonable for just 52p and it is available from all Sainsburys stores and www.sainsburys.co.uk.
I would definitely recommend this conditioner to be used with the shampoo as I have used it independently to the shampoo and the results are not as good if I am honest. My hair is left in fairly good condition after using this for a couple of weeks and while it does not have any magic claims of removing split ends or making your hair glisten like the sun it works well at keeping my hair free of grease and free of the massive knots I sometimes get so this works well for me and the price is something that is also attractive to me.
I am rating this conditioner 5/5 as the quality is relevant to the price paid, if not better, and it works well at keeping my hair clean and fresh.
SAINSBURY,S TEA TREE CONDITIONER.
Yes it really does work, and i have a dry scalp and found that in the last few weeks of using this conditioner, not only does my hair feel softer and fresher, and easier to brush, it really feels great and my scalp feels not as dry as before.
The Bottle **********
Comes in a plastic see through bottle, pull open lid, that clicks back down and doesnt leak after opening it. Has a little picture of a sort of leaf on the front of the bottle, and says that it is suitable for all hair types.and only costs 52p.
And as i have just stocked up on this as i buy my products to last a month i thought that i would have to let you know that yes it really does work, and i found the tea tree conditioner very calming for my scalp too. My hair feels so soft and it hasn,t done for ages, and has left my hair and scalp not feeling dry.
The Smell **********
Lovely, like fresh toothpaste or mints but not too overpowering. Mine looked slightly greener than in the picture but its the same product im sure, and yes im very impressed with this.
I tend to use this once im laying in the bath, having already washed my hair with Sainsbury,s shampoo, i usually put a nice hand full onto my hair (my hairs quite long) and rub in all over my scalp and hair, and leave it while i soak in the bath for approximately quarter of an hour, then i rinse it with my shower attachment and it feels so much better and has to be very honest made my hair a lot less tangles and easier to brush and thats a bonus plus my scalp feels really much better too.
Yes i will definetely recommend this product.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews. xx.
Well I wrote the review on the matching shampoo already and as usual of course I have the matching conditioner. As I mentioned in my previous review I never went out and purchased this by choice it was in the bathroom already and I thought I'd give it a go!
300ml clear plastic bottle with frosted white flip top lid. On the front I'm clearly told in grey writing it's by Sainsbury's and under that a green picture but don't know what its meant to be of and then under that I'm told it's Tea Tree Conditioner 'for all hair types'. On the back I'm told what it is, directions for use, warnings, ingredients, contact details for Sainsbury's, size is stated and are a bar-code. Fairly cheap economy looking packaging but it's informative enough.
What It Is....
Sainsbury's tea tree conditioner helps to condition and smooth hair for added shine and vitality. Specially formulated for all hair types.
Directions For Use....
After shampooing, smooth conditioner from root to tip. Leave it for a minute then rinse thoroughly. For best results use with Sainsbury's tea tree shampoo.
The conditioner in appearance worried me a little. I'm used to far thicker conditioners as a rule and this was rather runny though I did need to gently squeeze the bottle. The first thing I was greeted with was the aroma. Really, really minty with a hint of tea tree. I really like it it's really fresh smelling and suitable for anyone male, female or kids. The opaque light green liquid as I said runs out of the bottle so you have to be careful! Slap about the size of a 10p piece through the hair after washing with shampoo (depending on the length of hair but mine is past shoulder length and it slides on and through easy. It detangles straight away and you can feel a little bit of grease within the product which is why you don't need to much. I leave it on my head for a couple of minutes and then rinse it out which is easy.
I use this in conjunction with the matching shampoo. It is lovely and I'm so impressed. Hair is left soft, shiny and feels more manageable. The ends of my hair feel softer and I get comments as to the smell (positive ones!). The smell stays on the hair for hours and is minty fresh but not in an intrusive way. I only ever use really expensive hair conditioners usually and all I can say is the results I get are no worse than most of my usual favourites and in some cases are truly better. My overall hair condition at the moment is tip top and full of shine and me, well I'll be buying it over and over again. Sadly the only thing that brings this product down is the rather basic packaging but other than that it's amazing and only 54p a bottle which insulates it's cheap rubbish it really isn't! It's minty fresh, none tingling and doesn't upset sensitive eyes. Wonderful!
