“ Brand: Timotei / Type: Conditioner „
I always shampoo and condition my hair as I'm a bit of a straightener addict so I like to try and keep it in as good condition as possible. My Stepmum has used Timotei products for as long as I can remember and since I have moved in with my Dad and Stepmum I borrow a little of her Timotei every now and then when mine runs out.
The packaging of the conditioner is nice but simple, the bottle is a pale green with a cherry red lid. The bottle sits on its flat lid, I prefer bottles like this as the liquid runs to the bottom and its not as difficult to get the last drops out. On the front of the bottle is the Timotei logo in green with the word conditioner above it. The is a circle with a picture of cherries and also a picture of some natural cotton, the images are really nice and luxurious. The conditioner is from the 'Revives' range and contains 'Cherry extract & cotton', it is also for coloured hair. The back gives basic consumer information such as directions, ingredients, manufacturer address, etc. The bottle is shaped slightly so its easy to hold, the bottle contains 400ml.
I like my hair to smell nice but I'm not overly fussy about conditioner scent as long as it isn't too overpowering. This Timotei conditioner has a really nice rich but subtle cherry scent, I often get compliments that my hair smells nice when I use this product. Also if you use the shampoo and conditioner together the cherry smell is stronger but still not overly powerful.
To apply the conditioner I flip the lid and squeeze the amount I require into my hand and then cover my hair in the conditioner and cover my hair with it from roots to tips. I gently smooth the conditioner into my hair so that all my hair is covered. I then leave the conditioner in for about 2-5minutes depending if I'm in a rush or not and rinse it out. I heard that if you rinse your conditioner out under cold water it stops your hair going frizzy but I'm not sure if this is just nonsense?
I find that this conditioner leaves my hair feeling nice and silky soft with a nice delicate scent. My Stepmum uses it regularly and her hair is always in nice condition and her colour always look vibrant. Some colour reviving conditioners can leave your hair a little greasy but this product doesn't at all. A tip for if you have slightly greasy hair is to just condition your tips, this keeps them in good condition without making your hair greasier.
The conditioner is normally £1 at Asda with the shampoo. It retails at £2.32 in Sainsburys and Tescos but it is currently on offer for a £1 at Tesco.
I use this conditioner occasionally but it is my second favourite after my John Freida. It ticks all the boxes: leaves my hair feeling nice, non-greasy, nice scent and not expensive!
