Review: Toni & Guy – Leave In Conditioner For Dry, Frizzy & Damaged Hair

I bought some of Toni & Guy’s – Leave In Conditioner a few months ago as I was bleaching my jet black hair to make it a bit lighter and it was starting to look a little dry, brittle and damaged – especially at my ends. I needed a really good leave in conditioner to protect my hair from heat, to control frizz and to repair my damaged, fried hair at the same time. I thought I’d give the Leave In Conditioner a go as I loved the Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner so much that I was hoping this would be just as good too.

First Impressions:

The Leave In Conditioner from Toni & Guy comes in a 100ml white tube which has a clear, lockable flip-lid. The packaging is okay – nothing to shout about and it has all the relevant info printed on the back. The product itself is a white, creamy lotion which has a smooth texture and the consistency of actual conditioner. It smells lush too! It doesn’t have the cruelty free bunny on the back and it is made by Unilever. The Leave In Conditioner makes hair manageable for all-day nourishment and hydration. It also controls frizz, moisturises dry hair and protects against humidity all day long. It is suitable for all hair types too.

Thoughts:

I absolutely love this stuff girls! I was using Aussie’s spray but I like this one much better. I use the Leave In Conditioner every-time I wash my hair and I love how it smells, absolutely gorgeous. It kinda has a perfumey scent to it but it’s lovely and it makes the hair smell really nice! I use a small amount on towel dried hair and run it through my ends and mid-lengths, avoiding my roots to prepare my hair for styling.. After using my hair feels softer, moisturised and it really works to control frizz as well as acting like a heat protector. I have also used it on dry hair and it does work just as well although I do prefer to use it on damp hair.  Since using my hair doesn’t look as damaged as it did and it moisturises the hair instantly and tames frizz, flyaways and damaged ends. It also seems to be repairing my damaged ends a little too and I love how it protects my hair from heat so I’m not damaging my hair as much when blow-drying, straightening, curling, etc….

I love this Leave In conditioner – it’s probably one of the best I have ever used and I will defo be buying it again when the bottle is empty. I’ve had mine for a couple of months now and I still have lots left so it is long-lasting too. I also use Toni & Guy’s Damaged Repair Shampoo & Conditioner which I recommend using if your hair is really damaged or over-bleached.

Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money.


Where To Buy: You can buy some HERE on Amazon UK for £5.15. You can also pick a bottle up from the website, Boots or Superdrug.

Review: Creightons – Clay Balancing Shampoo & Hydrating Conditioner For Oily Roots & Dry Ends

I picked up CreightonsClay Balancing Shampoo & Clay Hydrating Conditioner from Home Bargains last week for 99p a bottle and I was instantly drawn to them because it said ‘clay’ on the bottle. I am a clay-a-holic and swear by the stuff so I couldn’t resist. I love using clay on my skin but I have never tried it on my hair before so I was interested to see what these would do.

It also says on the bottles that they are made for those who have oily roots & dry ends and I do get oily roots where my healthy hair is growing through and the ends are very dry because of over-bleaching in the past. I don’t think I have seen a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner that claims to combat both oily roots and dry ends so I couldn’t wait to give them a try. I’ve had a few other shampoos & conditoners from Creightons in the past and I have always liked them so was expecting good things.

For those of you who don’t know – Creightons are a UK-based beauty brand who sell a wide range of skincare and hair products. Take a look at their website HERE.

First Impressions

The Clay Shampoo /& Conditioner come is tall, 250 ml, metallic silver-green bottles with black, purple and white writing and they also have green lockable flip lids. They have a gorgeous little mermaid theme to them with the green, silver ad purple colours on the bottle. If mermaids used shampoo & conditioner, these are what they would use!

I think the bottles look quite expensive and you would never guess they were just under £1 each. The shampoo has a runny consistency and also has an off white colour whilst the conditioner has a thick, non-drop consistency and is white with a pearlescent shimmer. They both have a pleasant scent too which is mild and plant-like.

Thoughts:

When I first used the shampoo I was thinking to myself ‘I won’t be buying this again’ as it really didn’t lather well at all. I used more shampoo than was probably needed to get a small amount of lather and even then it didn’t lather up much. After washing it off I applied the conditioner all over my hair and it instantly felt soft and moisturised. After rinsing I towel dried my hair and combed through and my hair was easy to comb and didn’t have any tatts or knots. I left my hair to dry naturally and I never expected that I would be impressed with the results. My hair felt so soft and smooth when it had dried completely and it has a gorgeous little shine on it.

Two days later my roots were not oily like they usually are and my ends still felt soft and moisturised. I’ve used the shampoo & conditioner about 3 times since I purchased them and I do really like them both – my hair feels great and it looks so much better too. I have used more expensive shampoos & conditioners in the past that haven’t made my hair look or feel as it does now.

So, at first I didn’t like the shampoo and conditioner and I did think they were both rubbish and wouldn’t do anything good for my hair at all – main reason being that the shampoo doesn’t lather up and the scent, although it’s pleasant and not bad at all, it isn’t a fave of mine –  I wouldn’t say ‘woahhh this shampoo & conditioner smells absolutely amazing‘ – because it doesn’t, it just smells okay.

After using the shampoo & conditioner a couple of times already I really love what they have done to my hair and I’m amazed at how healthier it feels and looks. At 99p a bottle, they are great value for money and I will 100% be buying them again. I definitely recommend the shampoo & conditioner to anyone who has oily roots or dry, brittle ends. If you have both oily roots and dry ends like I do, then these are perfect for you and they will help with both problems.

Disclosure: I bought these products.

Where To Buy?

I got mine from Home Bargains for 99p each – so pop down to your local HB – they also have lots of other Creightons Shampoo & Conditioners for sale so you can take your pick.

I think Asda sell them as well and probably most chemists, supermarkets and beauty shops like Superdrug will probably stock them too.
