Product Junkie Rehab {Used item} - Giovani Direct Leave-In Conditioner.


I used up another item from my current "Use Up List". You can see THIS post for more info
(opens in new window).



I realise it's hard to see the item amongst the rest as the bottle is very modestly designed.





The item is Direct Leave-In Weightless Conditioner by Giovani.
I have to confess (It's good for the soul after all ;>  ) I finished the item and bought another one because my scalp was giving me issues and I wanted a very natural item that would be not only effective but also wouldn't aggravate my scalp.

My Experience/Review;
This is an item that I have purchased many times. I love that the ingredients are natural and many are organic. There's no parabens, sulphates or dyes added which is great.

Texture:
This leave in has a light lotion like consistency that melts quickly when poured and rubbed in the hand. Although it is light it is feels quite creamy. My hair has a good amount of slip when this is applied to it.



Fragrance:
Fresh and fruity. The fragrance is very subtle and reminds me of natural/organic baby products. It doesn't linger on the hair.

Value for Money:
Approx £7.99 for 250ml/8.5fl oz - I think the price is quite good considering the ingredients are full of organic items.


Pros:
Full of natural and many organic ingredients.
No parabens.
Pleasant fragrance
Fulfils purpose/claims - detangles, moisturises.
Light so doesn't weigh down.
No buildup.
Very gentle on scalp.


Cons:
Hair didn't feel as moisturised the next day when used as a Leave-In after washing.
Not always thick enough.
Not easily accessible - found in specialised shops.
Bottle doesn't last as long as heavier products.


Would I repurchase?
I would and have repurchased again (as I confessed lol) I would and have recommended this product to others.

Giovani Direct Leave-In Weightless Conditioner  can be found in Whole Foods, My Hair and Beauty ,Holland and Barret and other health food/ organic shops.
