VO5 Moisture Milks Passion Fruit Smoothie - Review

Saturday, January 30, 2010

So ask me what I did as soon as I got home? Hit the shower to cowash of course!! LOL. And let me tell you! I love this conditioner! It's truly moisturizing.

As soon as my hair got a dose of this goodness, it felt like butter. It felt really soft and lubricated. I have my hair in pixie braids at the moment, so I wasn't able to test what it would be like on the detangling front. Although, to be honest, it felt like it would provide quite a bit of slip. I'll have to give it a try on loose hair as well.

Compared to Strawberries and Cream (S&C) and Free Me Fresia (FMF)... I think Passion Fruit Smoothie (PFS) might be more moisturizing. Although S&C is more moisturizing than FMF, they both have a tendency to harden my hair a little (more so with FMF). The hardening isn't too bad, it's more a strengthening kind of hardening. I can't quite remember the ingredients in S&C but I know FMF definately has hydrolized keratin, which would probably account for the strengthening properties. I didn't feel that PFS did that at all. It's just purely moisturizing.

I'm trying to see how far I can go with a No Poo (no shampoo) routine. Despite that I've been using Chicoro's moiturizing method and coating my hair with 3 layers of product almost everyday, my hair felt clean with just this cowash. I didn't check my scalp before tying my scarf up for the night, so I'll check tomorrow and update this. But my hair definitely felt clean.

**Update** After that first wash, my scalp wasn't clean. So I cowashed again with this yesterday, same great results, soft moisturized and clean hair. However, my scalp doesn't seem to be getting clean. I tried leaving the conditioner on for half an hour or so. Massaging it in. Lathering twice. Nothing doing ... it's worked before with the FMF ... hmm... maybe because I'm in pixie braids?? Cowashers out there, any tips??

The consistency is quite runny just like most of the cheapie VO5s. But that's a good thing. The runniness makes coverage much easier. Yet it's thick enough to not run down my back/ face. However, this consitency means that you have to be more generous. I think I used a handful and a bit. But maybe that's just me, I'm usually quite heavy handed anyway when it comes to conditioner.

This stuff smells devine too!! I don't know why but it reminds me of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. And you know how good that smells!

I'll definitely be updating this post as I use the conditioner more. But for now it's looking like it could be fav!
