Advantages: Light and luxurious.
Disadvantages: Not the best conditioner for my hair but comes a close second.
Until trying L'Oreal's Nutri-gloss range I had never really been a fan of L'Oreal's shampoo and conditioners as past personal experiences had not been too good. However, as I have had more postive experiences with other L'Oreal products I have always tried to keep an open mind when it comes to this brand's products.
Because of those past experiences I wouldn't have bought this Nutri-Gloss Light conditioner, but after trying this when at a friend's house when getting my hair cut, I found I was really pleased with the results and bought some of the shampoo and conditioner when it was on offer at Asda shortly afterwards.
I have since bought the regular Nutri-Gloss shampoo and conditioner also, after receiving sample bottles and being fairly pleased with the results, but having tried both I found I do prefer the Nutri-Gloss 'Light' range.
I always use a conditioner on my hair after shampooing as without it, my hair feels dry and also looks frizzy, not to mention the tangles which make it difficult to comb. Using a conditioner enables my hair to look the best it possibly can and smoothes the hair shafts as well as providing a sleek shiny glow if I use what have been my favourite brands up to now such as Pantene and John Frieda. Having used this particular conditioner quite often now, I would say it does come a very close second to my favourite brands.
L'Oreal Nutri-Gloss conditioner comes in a very girly-pink bottle. I am not a fan of anything pink, therefore the packaging does little for me, but it is what is inside the bottle that really matters.
The conditioner contains a pearl protein complex to promote shine and bounce, promising mirror shine and cashmere touch. It is said to target your hair fibre and nourish from the roots to the tips, leaving it soft and shiny without leaving your hair feeling heavy. It stated on the bottle it was suitable for medium-long hair and as I have long hair I hoped my hair would feel soft and silky smooth with a glossy shine after using it.
I have used the matching shampoo and enjoyed the moisturising touch it provided, as well as the fragrance and the feel of my hair after rinsing it out. I thought that by using the matching conditioner, I would be left very impressed by these products overall.
The conditioner itself has a creamy texture, which is somewhat thicker than some conditioners I have used but still feels light and dipenses easily from the bottle. Massaging the conditioner into my hair after rinsing out the shampoo, I find it feels quite moisturising and luxurious.
When using the shampoo, I have been impressed by the fact that a little of the shampoo seems to go a long way, such is its moisturising and lathering capabilities and I am happy to report that the same can be said for this conditioner, even though I did find I had to use slightly more than I usually would in order to achieve full coverage of my hair.
My fingers glide easily through my hair both whilst applying it and rinsing it out and my hair feels as if it is being moisturised whenever I use this conditioner and feels very smooth but is also totally tangle-free.
I really like the fragrance of this conditioner, which I find is difficult to describe. Whilst not predominently floral or fruity, it has a lovely long-lasting fragrance which seems to combine both of these and produces a natural scented fragrance which I am sure most people would find appealing, particularly if you are a fan of the herbal essence-type hair products, as I would liken its fragrance to those products.
After drying and styling my hair after using this conditioner, it feels really soft and there is a noticeable shine. There is no product residue remaining on my hair and it all rinses out easily. My hair does not feel weighted down at all and the fragrance lingers all day.
I have however, achieved a slightly glossier and sleeker look to my hair when using a different conditioner and so for that reason this is not going to be my favourite, but it comes a very close second. I would still be happy to recommend this however, as it is by no means a poor conditioner and I buy it when I notice it is available on promotion as part of 'buy one get ones free' offers for example.
I also find it is often available at an offer price of around £1.50- £1.70 too and as the recommended price seems to be around or over £2.45 for the regular size bottle, this can be quite a bargain price.
Overall, L'Oreal Nutri-Gloss Light is not my all-time favourite conditioner, but it is still one I am happy to recommend.
Summary: A decent conditioner which won't leave your hair feeling heavy or looking limp.
