“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Conditioner „
I like to try out Tesco own brand toiletries and find them to be quite good on the whole (with the exception of some value products). Usually I use Alberto's fruity shampoo's and conditioners which can be bought for only a pound. The Tesco Apple and Aloevera conditioner is slightly cheaper at 80p for 500ml- though a smaller sized bottle than I've previously bought- but still bigger than Alberto's 400ml.
The new style bottle is cylindrical with a flip top lid and has 'Replenish Conditioner' written on it. The bottle is see-through so you can see the conditioner which is a nice creamy pale green colour. It's suitable to use every day and is formulated with natural extracts to help leave your hair feeling 'soft, healthy and manageable'. This smells of apple (not sure about the aloe though), it compliments it's partner shampoo really well. The consistency is thin for a conditioner but creamy.
I bought this for my daughter as she has bleached dip dyed hair which is very dry and has a tendency to break off at the ends so needs to condition everytime she shampoo's which is most days, therefore she needs something mild but effective. I on the other hand don't condition very often as I hate hanging around in the shower. On the occasions that I do use it, I find this particular conditioner fine for me but I don't have particularly dry hair.
After washing my hair I massage a good dollop in, I find I need quite a bit- as is the case for most conditioners especially cheap ones. Because it's thin it rubs in and rinses off easily and doesn't leave a sticky residue. Once dried my hair feels soft and manageable but in fairness shampooing alone leaves my hair with no tangle problem anyway.
My daughter has very dry ends. She needs to put loads of conditioner on the them making it harder to rinse out (she has got long hair though) and she has to leave it on for as long as possible. She puts a minimal amount on the top half of her hair. Her hair is left feeling lank once dried and the dry bottom of her hair is only marginally softer and smoother than just shampooing alone.
Neither of us is left with shiny hair, but it does feel clean and not greasy. The delish apple smell stays apparent for ages too. We've experienced no irritation whilst using this conditioner.
I'd give it 4 stars but my daughter would say 2 so an average of 3 stars from me.
Having reviewed the Tesco apple and aloe vera shampoo, which I was very impressed with, I am now going to review the matching conditioner.
I used both these products recently when staying at my mum's house as I hadn't taken along my own hair care products. I usually need to use moisturising products as I have curly, slightly dry hair and I do avoid cheaper supermarket-own brands if I am honest. But in the absence of any other options, I was happy to give this range a try.
A thin texture
As with the shampoo, this conditioner comes in very basic, functional packaging - a simple bottle with a flip-top lid. I found that the consistency of this conditioner was really quite thin, and definitely thinner than conditioners I am more used to using. For this reason I felt I probably needed more of it than I would with other products.
This had the same pleasant apple fragrance that the shampoo had - a nice fresh scent that isn't too strong, which is good as I am not the biggest fan of apple scents usually! This seemed to be just right - fruity but not sickly!
I left this on my hair for as long as possible, and rinsing this off my hair definitely felt soft and smooth, and had that "just conditioned" feel. But it definitely didn't feel quite as silky as after I have used other conditioners, and I could certainly tell that this isn't of quite as good quality as my usual products.
Not the best...
After leaving my hair to dry naturally, which I always do, I would again say that my hair didn't feel as soft as usual. Although it wasn't really bad, it just felt a bit under-conditioned - it lacked a little something that I get with other products. Having said this, it was tangle-free and relatively easy to manage, so I would say this would probably work fine on normal hair - by which I mean nice straight locks that don't go curly or frizzy like mine!
... but great for the price
I have just checked the price of the shampoo and conditioner in order to write these reviews, and I was really pleasantly surprised to see that they cost just 88p. And this is for a big 750ml bottle. I think this is great value for money for what is a decent enough conditioner. For me personally, I wouldn't be buying it again, but if you find that a light conditioner works well for your hair, and you don't really need a massive moisture boost, then I would strongly recommend this. It is a decent conditioner at a brilliant budget price, so I will be giving it three stars.
I've got a habit of buying things just because they're cheap and seem like a bargain, and this conditioner is one of my recent impulse buys. This is a Tesco own brand product and it can be purchased either in store or via Tesco's website. It retails at just 88 pence per large 750Ml bottle, which seemed like a real bargain. There are a few different scents to choose from and I opted for apple and aloe vera as it seemed like an unusual concoction of scents.
The conditioner comes in a rounded, rectangular plastic bottle which isn't too boring or ugly considering the price and the design is reasonably sleek. The bottle is quite tall and bulky, but it doesn't take up too much space on the side of the bath. The branding on the bottle is minimal with the product name written in large font and directions for use etc on the back. As the bottle is transparent, the light green conditioner can be seen which I find handy as I'm able to see how much I have left.
The bottle has a green flip top lid which once open exposes a little hole which the product is dispensed from. This controls the flow which is handy considering how wattery the conditioner is. Tesco claim that this conditioner softens the hair, leaving it healthy and manageable. They also state that it contains natural extracts, which I was pleasantly suprised by considering the price. The conditioner itself is very runny and it has that cheap waterred down type of consistency.
I find that I need at least two large blobs of it to cover all of my hair, meaning that the bottle gets used up quite quickly meaning it is not as good value for money as I first thought. The conditioner struggles to lather and instead it kind on just sits on the hair like a layer rather than foaming up - it doesn't feel at all luxurious. The conditioner rinses out well, leaving no greasy or sticky residue at all. My hair feels clean and fresh after use but other than that it doesn't look or feel any different; there's no increase in shine and it does not feel softer or particullary moisturised.
On the plus side this does actually smell quite nice. It smells suprisingly natural with a fruity and refreshing fragrance which lingers in my hair for around a day after application. Although this doesn't lather well and doesn't leave my hair feeling particullary soft or in better condition, I do still recommend it if you want a basic conditioner as it smells nice and leaves my hair feeling nice and clean - plus it is cheap! Overall, I give this conditioner three out of five stars.
I first noticed this on the shelf at tesco's a few months back. I was stocking up on my usual shampoo's and conditioners when I noticed this placed on the bottom shelf (The image above of the bottle is different to there new bottle which is a cylinder shape) It was only 59p and they had a shampoo as well. (I will review the shampoo at a later date and was priced the same). I am a huge fan of apple and I love the smell, I lifted up the lid and had a sniff, it smelt really yummy so I bought it! I wasnt expecting it to be brilliant for the price, but the smell was a real treat and was worth trying. I will not go into more detail on this conditioner!
The bottle is very large and contains 750ml of conditioner. on the front is says "smooth conditioner" and says how it is for frequent use only (which I have always believed is a ploy for you to use it all up). The bottle is clear and the conditioner is a green colour, the lid is also green. On the back you are given insructions on how to use. It says how they have used natural extracts to create the shampoo and that it will leave your hair feeling "soft, healthy and manageable". It also tells you that best results will be seen when you use the shampoo which goes with this (like most brands will tell you to do). overall this bottle is large and it doesnt fit in my shower tray so I have to leave it on the floor of the shower which is a bit of a pain sometimes as I am constantly knocking it over. I have also broken the lid from dropping it on the floor, its a very cheaply made bottle. But for the price I am not too bothered myself.
My opinion on the product:
It left my hair clean, not as soft as other conditioners I have used. The thing I like the most is the smell, it smells nice all day. My girlfriend likes it on me too. The conditioner is quite runny and is a bit watered down. Its not a high quality conditioner and wont sort out any hair problems! I dont feel much difference if I use it after shampoo or dont use it, but im sure it works! I may buy this again in the future :)
I am happy with this and it smells great! doesn't leave my hair soft though :( Its average! but I do like it, gets the thumbs up from me.
I will give this 3 stars.
Thanks for reading.. Josh :)
As explained in the review of the matching shampoo, I was looking for a cheaper option for the whole family to save money. This seemed like a good way of doing this and as the packaging is sleek and stylish is did not feel like a downgrade.
The packaging has been updated from the picture shown and is currently a clear cylinder or 750ml priced at around just 60 pence which is indeed a bargain compared to the other products on the shelf at Tescos! The bottle is very large and lasted my family at least a month which is better than some we have previously tried.
The quality of the conditioner is reasonable, the consistency is very watery compared to that of Doves for example. You have to use more of it to get the same effect but this is not a problem at the size and price of the bottle. It does have a decent conditioning effect which is needed after using the shampoo but I have also found you need to wash your hair more often which is troublesome as you are already using quite a lot is seems unreasonable to double shampoo and condition.
The aroma is lovely, fresh and fairly long lasting (at least a day). It is substantially apple but the effects of the aloe vera are no doubt beneficial.
This is an okay conditioner and I will possibly buy in the future if in short of cash!
TESCO HAIR CONDITIONER
APPLE AND ALOE VERA
At 80p for 500ml Tesco hair conditioner is good value for money, so I thought I would give it a try. I've never used Tesco own make of hair conditioner before but I was very pleasantly surprised.
It comes in a 500ml clear plastic bottle with a flip top lid simple enough to open with we hands. The label on the front is green and white and has a picture of green apples on it. It says along the bottom, Apple & Aloe Vera Conditioner for frequent use. The conditioner is green in colour and has a gorgeous smell of apples, it is a lovely clean fresh smell.
The ingredients are printed on the back easy for anyone with allergies to read. The product and ingredients have not been tested on animals which is always good.
The conditioner is not as thick as my usual brand, but I found that much better, as I find the thicker conditioners tends to slip of my hair in lumps where as the Yesco conditioner being thinner rubbed into my hair much easier, therefore making longer lasting and more economical.
When I brushed my hair afterwards it was tangle free and smelt lovely. I after my hair was dry the conditioner had left it really silky, soft and smelling really clean and fresh, aswell as very easy to brush through!!!!!
I would definatly recommend Tesco Conditioner to anyone, no matter what you hair type.
It has no disadvantages that I can see, and is a good value product.
Definatly worth trying.
I told you recently about Tesco's wonderful Apple & Aloe Vera Shampoo which costs just 58p for a 750ml bottle. This review is about its partner, the Apple & Aloe Vera Conditioner which costs a bargain 42p for 500ml.
Squirting some out of the bottle I discover this is a creamy conditioner which is thicker than I imagined it would be for that price. It is a lovely pale green colour which smells distinctly of red apples (even though green apples are pictured on the label) and has a lovely sweet undertone.
The conditioner spread easily through my just washed wet hair and after I left it on for a few minutes was very easy to rinse out. My hair always feels silky smooth after I have used this conditioner and considering how cheap it is I find it a nice rich conditioner. There is never the hint of a tangle in my hair after I've used this conditioner and it leaves my hair very soft, almost too soft sometimes as I struggle to style it sometimes!
I find the Apple & Aloe Vera conditioner very easy to rinse out, I like to use cool water to rinse it out because this gives my hair a nice shine and within a minute or two there is no conditioner at all in my hair. The scent lingers on my hair for quite a while, more so when I have used it in conjunction with the matching Tesco Apple & Aloe Vera shampoo.
I use this roughly every four days as I find using it every day can leave my hair looking tired and limp, and anyway the Apple & Aloe Shampoo does a good job of nourishing and looking after my hair so there is no need to condition every day.
I used this as an overnight conditioner once and it left my hair beautifully soft and it felt much healthier afterwards. My daughter has started using this on herself and the older two girls' and she's impressed too, and this is a woman who doesn't baulk at spending £15 on a bottle of conditioner so for her to be buying this is testament to its effectiveness!
Tesco Apple & Aloe Vera Conditioner
**WHAT IT DOES**
Tesco Apple & Aloe Vera conditioner is supposed to make your hair feel soft, healthy and manageable. It is suitable for everyday use and should improve your hair's condition.
It comes in a rectangular shaped bottle, which is frosted, but you can still see the pastel green conditioner inside. The lid is plastic and you have to click it up and down to open and close. If you need to you can screw this lid off. On the front of the bottle there is a label which is green and cream. It has a picture of an apply which leaves it rather eye-catching when its on the shelf. The Tesco logo is on the top. On the back there is a label with detailed information on the product. It is nice to know that the bottle is made of high-density polyethylene and the cap from polypropylene, which can be disposed of through waste collection or recycled, where facilities are available.

Apple promotes hair growth, which will help it be healthier.
Aloe Vera is good to help make your hair more healthy and thicker. It is a good thing to help treat hair loss.
This product and ingredients is not tested on animals by or for Tesco.
The conditioner is pastel green in colour. It has a distinct smell of apples, which personally I don't like. It may be to some people liking but not mine. The smell is strong and in my opinion a sweet sickly smell. The conditioner is not thick at all but it is rather watery for a conditioner. You could mistake it for a shampoo except for the colour of it.
DIRECTIONS - Once you have finished shampooing gently massage the conditioner into your hair and scalp. What I Do to get better results is use a wide toothed to comb it gently through your hair to even it out. Another tip is to leave it in longer than you would other conditioners. Then rinse thoroughly. Make sure to avoid contact with eyes, if contact does occur rinse them immediately with clean lukewarm water. Once you have opened the shampoo you need to use it within 24 months but I think you will have it used long before then.
Tesco have a promise on this product that if it falls below the high standard you expect then they will be happy to replace or refund it. It doesn't affect your statutory rights.

Personally I really don't like this product. I detest the smell in fact it would give me a headache if I smelt it for too long. I find that the conditioner doesn't help my hair be in better condition all that much. To get any sort of results I have to keep the conditioner in as long as half and hour. I also find that I have to use a lot of the conditioner at any one time to make any difference to my hair. It costs under a pound, which is a good price but not good value as it is used up very quickly and doesn't condition your hair very well. It is ok to use it everyday but you would definitely need to use another conditioner at least once or twice a week to make up for how bad this one is. If you want to get your hair healthy, soft and in good condition I would definitely recommend you don't use this product and try something else.
