Disadvantages: It doesn't really work!
Tesco's Everyday Coconut Conditioner. This is to follow my shampoo review of the same range.
***Why I Bought***
So I went on holiday to relatives, packed everything, got there and realised I'd forgotten Shampoo or Conditioner, as you do... next day was a shopping trip to Tesco and I looked and saw this on the shelf. For a few uses they were cheap, around 80p each - currently the conditioner is 88p (but there's a 3for2 offer on, quick, go!) which for 750ml of conditioner is... super cheap. No arguments.
The packaging isn't bad - it's a very large, see through bottle with a clear label on the front and back - the brand, smell, everyday use etc on the front and all the ingredients and other info on the back. It's recyclable plastic which may be a bonus depending on your outlook on the 3 Rs.
The conditioner is a solid creamy white colour - it's thicker than the shampoo but is still a somewhat runny conditioner, this doesn't bother me too much. The smell is slightly heavier and a little less fresh than the shampoo I believe, although it's a subtle difference and for all I know could be imagined! It still smells of coconut though, which is a great start. I used plenty in my hair, partly as it's so thin, partly as it just feels like it needs a good slathering - not a problem, it's super cheap.
On the bottle this says it's a shampoo for dry/damaged hair. On the back it says it's been formulated with natural extract to leave hair feeling soft, healthy and manageable.
Well, a conditioner should leave hair feeling conditioned and as the final product in a basic routine, it needs to live up to its claims. Unfortunately... this just doesn't. My hair felt little different than it should have after just the shampoo that went first - my hair was tangly, still dry feeling and generally, not great. After the shampoo being so good, this was an incredible disappointment.
My hair is dyed and quite dry so I wasn't expecting miracles from a cheap conditioner, but I really feel this is not up to the job.
My advice - buy that cheap shampoo, but find a better conditioner, as for 88p, I'm pretty sure a cheap bottle of olive oil would be a better choice.
This gets 2* - it didn't do any damage, but I needed to recondition my hair to get it manageable. I'm torn between 1* and 2* but as it's not the most useless product I've ever used, 2 seems fairer. I may change my mind at some point.
Summary: Don't bother!
