Five Favourites: High Street Conditioners

high street conditioners

TRESemme Keratin Smooth Restoring Conditioner, £4.99 for 500ml - I've only just recently started using this conditioner as part of my quest to reduce fluffiness, flyaways and frizz but so far I'm impressed. I think at £4.99 it is a really affordable option if you're interested in smoothing products but don't want to splash out on any of the high end brands. I've also been using the matching shampoo and heat defence spray both of which I would definitely recommend trying as well.

John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioning Mask, £6.29 for 100ml - Of the deep conditioners available on the high street I think Full Repair is one of the best. Although I'm not currently using it I do think the Full Repair range in general is worth a try if you're looking to find something new for dry hair. I do think it is a little overpriced for how much product you get, let's be honest 100ml won't go far on longer hair, but as I', sure you know by now John Frieda products are often on 3 for 2 or 2 for £7.50 deals so there's always an opportunity to stock up!

LUSH Retread, £9.95 for 245g - My favourite of the bunch is definitely Retread and I actually wrote a whole post on it back in August which you can find here. This conditioner leaves my hair feeling super soft, light and smooth for days, not forgetting that it smells amazing - just like Parma Violets! I know a lot of people think that the small tub won't last long enough to justify the price tag but I've found I can get around 12 uses from one tub when applied to the bottom two thirds of my hair only (and I have super long hair!). If used once a week as a deep conditioning treat that means a tub will last around 3 months. Yes, it is the priciest of my choices but I do think it is worth the money for the instant results it gives.

Dove Colour Radiance Express Treatment Conditioner, £3.35 for 180ml - Although the ends of my hair are lightened I don't tend to opt for colour protecting products like this one. I also don't usually take any notice of Dove products in general but this conditioner leaves my hair feeling impressively soft. The tube pictured above is actually a sample size and when I looked up the price of a full-sized tube I was pleasantly surprised to find how inexpensive it is. Although usually only £3.35 it is actually currently on offer at Superdrug for only £1.65 so this is the perfect time to try it out!

Loreal Elvive Damage Care Conditioning Repair Spray, £3.99 for 200ml - This is a conditioning product I have been using for years, its great for a top up in between washes and for applying before blowdrying for extra softness. It doesn't weigh down the hair like some leave in conditioners do which is a bonus if you have long or thick hair like I do. I wasn't able to find it on either the Boots or Superdrug wesbites so I'm not sure if it has been discontinued, I have seen it on the shelves recently though so hopefully you can still pick it up!
