Palmers Olive Oil Formula Replenishing Conditioner

The Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Replenishing Conditioner claims to be a frizzy haired girls best friend. It is meant to smooth out frizz, increase moisture level and soften tight curls. It's meant to leave hair shiner,  less frizzy, easy to style and softer with an extra bounce. 

The Extra Virgin Olive Oil, in combination with Soybean Oil and Keratin Amino Acids help this replenishing conditioner do it's job and it's meant to help protect the hair from the environment and heat styling tools. 

I picked this up in hopes that I would find a great conditioner  that did everything I wanted. I need something to smooth frizz, loosen curls (weigh down hair?) and add shine. This claimed to do all of those so I snapped it up right away. I also wanted something that was going to be safe to use on my colour treated hair, and this claims to be.  

For £3.99, this is a pretty decent conditioner but for some reason I expected more. It's good, don't get me wrong. It does help smooth out frizz, but I didn't notice any difference in the 'bounce' of my hair or the tightness of my curls. I tend not to use heat on my hair to often, so I can't comment on it's protective qualities but it did keep hair nearly frizz free until my next wash.
It didn't have the best scent in the world, but I think that might be because I was used to the lovely coconut scent of my holy grail Superdrug conditioner (review here). The good thing was that the scent didn't linger in my hair after washing, so it really didn't matter to me all that much. 
It is worth noting that the formula is sulphate and paraben free which is great. I haven't ever really found a conditioner that works on my hair that is paraben free, so I'm glad I have this as an option now.  

Overall, I would recommend this for people with dry and damaged hair. I think it might be a bit to much for people (as an everyday conditioner) who have normal to greasy hair. It's not going to fix all hair sins, but it does help give the hair a healthier looks so I would recommend giving this a go. You can pick it up from Feel Unique for just £3.99 and they offer free international shipping so you can get it anywhere in the world.

    Lots of Love Beautyqueenuk!

  2. I love the Palmer's coconut shampoo and conditioner for rescuing my dry hair, and it smells lush. My fiance uses the coconut hair milk, he has afro hair and it works wonders on adding moisture and shine xx
