Tried and Tested...Condition your hair with...
I started off by using the Retread conditioner from LUSH (one of my absolute favourite stores), I found that this was a brilliant natural conditioner as my hair felt really soft and light after washing. I loved the smell of it, as it contains lavender it was very soothing. How to use it: I washed my hair with one of LUSHs shampoos, then semi dried my hair placed a large proportion of the conditioner on my hair going from the roots to the tip of the hair and clipped for around 5 minutes and then washed it out. You can see the results immediately. However, I used this conditioner as a 'spa' treatment for the hair and not on a regular basis.
The two products from Organix are amazing! Absolutely worth the buy. I switch them around depending on what I feel. The coconut one is by far the best for dry hair, I noticed results immediately! My hair was silkier and shinier. Passionfruit Guava is also an amazing conditioner but I did not notice any results which would want me to go purchase it again. The scent is really fruity which I love, especially for the summer months.
The next two conditioners are by JOICO. I actually found out about these through the utube beauty gurus Blair and Elle Fowler. And to tell you honestly, I didnt like them at all! I experienced so much hair fall after using them that I had to discontinue use. I feel they have too many chemicals in them and when youre looking to moisturise your hair you should always go for something more natural.
Elvive is from L'oreal and is a deep conditioning mask that you place on your hair after shampooing. You leave it on for approximately 20 mins. I found this was a great conditioner on a monthly basis.
So which is the conditioner I would choose?
It would have to be the Organix coconut milk conditioner! My hair has never felt better and I would definitely go for another bottle once I am finished with this one.
Retread 3/5 stars
Passionfruit Guava 4/5
Coconut milk 5/5
All these products were bought from my own money and all the reviews are my own honest opinion.
