A'kin Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner - A Review From My Pure

At the end of June I received my second review parcel from the lovely people at
My Pure containing two lovely products to test. I'm a bit late to it this month so I'll try to get both reviews up over the weekend starting here. One of the items in the parcel was the A'kin Jojoba and Lavender Light Conditioner. I've already talked about A'kin in a previous review for My Pure but this fabulous Australian based brand prides itself on using organic, natural predominantly botanical ingredients, free from sulfates, parabens, silicones and other nasties, and that is certainly the case with this conditioner
A clear ingredients listing shows the presence of extracts such as Avocado and Jojoba oils both of which are excellent at providing moisture to improve the condition of your hair and scalp. It also contains lots of aromatherapy based oils and plant extracts such as Lavender, for healing and normalizing hair and skin, Geranium which is again anti-bacterial and also calming, and Rosemary which as well as being anti-inflammatory is also often used to promote shiny hair. Again A'kin have chosen their ingredients carefully for this light shampoo for normal, fine and oily hair
The bottle itself looks quite rustic, and the product dispenses easily from the flip cap with a little bit of pressure. The conditioner itself feels light but creamy
I applied to my hair after washing and lightly towel drying. It applied easily right through my colour treated hair from root to tip (if you have oily hair A'kin advise just to apply the product to the ends). I then left it for a couple of minutes before rinsing
It rinsed out easily leaving my longish hair tangle free, soft and smelling amazing. This product really does have a lovely smell the combination of the floral extracts of lavender, rosemary and geranium are particularly evident. Mummy LouLou also tried this and I have to say even as self confessed conditioner hater she loved it - she said that hair coarse, colour treated, curly hair felt softer and not as though it was coasted in anything (probably due to the lack of silicone in this product, something which is included in a lot of hair conditioners). I think this is a really nice daily conditioner - it smells nice, and does the job whether it would be suitable for very dry hair I'm not convinced you would probably need something a bit thicker but it's nice for use on normal hair, and it's even gentle enough to be used everyday. The A'kin Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner is available from My Pure for £7.49 for a generous 225ml

(This product was provided by My Pure for review purposes - this has in no way affected my viewpoint - this is my opinion and mine alone)
