I'll be honest and say that the packaging doesn't fill me with joy. I'm not too keen on the green and brown colours. But I guess it does go with the theme of natural ingredients. And it comes in a large, sturdy bottle. A pump would be nice to help when applying the conditioner to the hair because the bottle can be a bit cumbersome but apart from that, the packaging does the job it's meant to do. And in the end, it's about what the product does, not how pretty the packaging looks.
Consistency: The product is thick, white and very creamy, great for deep conditioning. I demonstrate the consistency in this video review:
Smell: The smell is very sweet and enjoyable and I got compliments on it from my boyfriend (big smiles all round!). However, sometimes I did get slightly sick of it because it is quite strong; I could see someone who doesn't like strong smells possibly disliking it because of its intensity.
How does it feel on the hair? It goes onto the hair very easily and gives a really good, thick coating for deep conditioning. At times when my hair felt dry and tangled from shampoo, I'd put in on my hair and immediately felt a difference: my hair suddenly felt manageable and soft again! It provides lovely slip, making detangling a much easier process.
How does the hair feel after it's been washed out? My hair felt really soft and nicely conditioned but without any kind of waxy or residue feeling.
Is this conditioner protein or moisture-based? This is definitely a moisture-based deep conditioner: the first ingredient is water. To my knowledge, it doesn't contain any protein ingredients.
Does it contain silicones? Yes.
Does it contain any natural ingredients? As the name suggests, it contains "100% natural almond and shea butter", as well as aloe vera juice, lemongrass oil, camomile leaf extract and quite a few more! (More details in the video above.)
How long does the product last? Due to the thickness of the product and the size of the bottle, it lasts a long time. I used the product for over a month and a half and had about half of the bottle still left, even though I was using it for more than one purpose.
Can it be used for anything else? I found that as well as deep conditioning, this product was really good for moisturising my hair too! My hair responds well to thick butters, and I think the shea butter in it worked well for me. Although this can be used as a rinse-out conditioner (ie for co-washing), I think it works best as a deep conditioner: it can be used either way though because it does provide good slip to the hair.
My final verdict: The product claims to make your hair feel nourished and beautiful, and I would agree 100%!
Final marks out of 10? A definite 9. Good price, lots of product for the price, soft, manageable hair after using it, a multi-purpose product... what's not to love? The only negative for me is that the fragrance could be toned down just a little.
