Review- Alberto Balsam strawberries and cream conditioner

Alberto Balsam has always been one of those brands that I always see in store but tend to walk past, preferring to go for more well know brands such as Herbal Essence and Aussie. However I fancied trying something new so decided to give this a go. Here's my review:

Product: Alberto Balsam strawberries and cream conditioner

Price: £1

What they say:Fancy getting fruity? This strawberries and cream conditioner smells fabulous and nourishes your hair, to leave it feeling fresh. It uses most of the same ingredients you’ll find in more expensive brands, but at a great price which means you can afford to look glamorous every day!
- Restores softness and shine
- Moisturises and nourishes
- Strengthens with pro-vitamin B5

What I think: This conditioner is surprisingly good considering its price. I use about a 3cm blob each time and smooth it through the bottom half of my hair. Its very easy to rinse out and leaves my hair feeling soft but clean. This conditioner is actually designed for dry damaged hair but I like to use extra moisturising ones on the end of my fine hair. Its a very light cream so as long as I rinse properly my hair doesn't get weighed down.

As its name suggests its got a delicous strawberry and cream scent that reminds me of those round swirly sweets and it makes the shower smell so nice.

Whenever I use this my hair always feels really smooth and silky and I've noticed that my hair is easier to comb through and doesn't knot as easily.

Rating: 9/10

Would I repurchase: Definitely, I'm really impressed and will definitely be checking out the rest of the range.
