V05 Gloss Me Smoothly Conditioner
Advantages: great value if on offer, leaves hair soft and smooth
Disadvantages: did not make my hair very glossy
I have quite hard to manage hair that is prone to drying out easily and can be rather frizzy. My hair also tends to get used to products easily so I tend to change what I use on a regular basis. And as I stated on my review of the 'Gloss me Smoothly Shampoo' I was a little hesitant to buy this range from V05 as I had liked the old range so much I didn't think it would be as good. But me not being able to resist a good offer I decided to give it a try and also purchased the matching conditioner.
The conditioner comes in a 250ml bottle, I was lucky enough to only pay £1.00 for the conditioner from Boots which I thought was a great bargain as it normally retails in for £1.99. I tend to always buy two bottles of conditioner per one bottle of Shampoo as I have dry hair so tend to use quite a large amount of conditioner to make sure my hair is well nourished.
The conditioner comes in a pearlescent ivory bottle with a flip top cap, I thought it was a shame that it was not in the same vivid pink bottle the shampoo came in but I suppose this way you can tell the difference between the two easily. The front of the bottles design is quite simple with the Alberto VO5 logo and the name of the conditioner. It states that the conditioner is for fizzy hair and that it will 'banish frizz and unlock shine for a sleek glossy transformation'. On the back of the bottle it gives you more detailed information including full ingredients listings and directions for use. It also states that the bottle is suitable for recycling.
The conditioner like the shampoo has' Adaptive Haircare Technology' which means that the conditioner adjusts to you, giving you the correct amount of nourishment for your hair.
The directions for use tell you after shampooing to work the conditioner through the mid lengths to the ends of your hair. I also always do my roots to as they also are quite dry and need extra moisture. I do use quite a lot of conditioner so a 250ml bottle normally last me around 10 washes.
I find the conditioner really easy to dispense out of the bottle and there are never any leaks as the conditioner is rather thick. The conditioner is easy to distribute through my hair to give all over coverage. The conditioner feels very silky and has a pleasant sweet, fruity fragrance. I find that this conditioner also washes out very easily and does not leave any residue behind.
After using the Gloss me smoothly conditioner and as long as it is fully rinsed out then it leaves my hair feeling very soft and supple after conditioning. Although again like the shampoo it does not seem to leave a noticeably better glossing effect on my hair but I would still definitely recommend this conditioner to anyone who suffers from dry/frizzy hair as it gives a good level of hydration without leaving it limp and lifeless as with some conditioners.
In conclusion a very good conditioner for dry/frizzy hair and a bargain if found on offer.
Summary: a good conditioner for dry and frizzy hair
