Although I really love my Big solid conditioner from LUSH, I thought I’d give the American Cream hair conditioner a go, just to mix things up a bit! I bought the smallest bottle, which is £4.75 for 100g, but it’s also available in a couple of bigger sizes too. I thought the small one would be perfect to try it out, and because I’m going up to Derby for a couple of days and it’s a really handy travel-size.
The conditioner contains honey water, fair trade vanilla, fresh strawberries, organic orange and sage and lavender oils. It’s designed to ‘leave your hair gorgeously soft and smelling sweetly’.
First impressions are that I really like the smell – I was worried that it was going to smell overpoweringly of strawberry, which is one of my least favourite scents, but it’s actually a lovely vanilla scent, with a hint of strawberry coming through.
It’s a lovely, thick and creamy consistency, but it doesn’t leave my hair feeling weighed down which is often the case with thicker conditioners. It spreads really nicely through my hair, and I like to concentrate it on the ends which need the most moisture.
Something that I’m really impressed with is the amount of shine it gives my hair! As you blonde readers will know, it’s often tricky to get your hair as shiny as those with darker hair, and it can often feel really soft but still look a bit dull. American Cream has brought my colour out and made my hair look beautifully healthy!
All in all I really like this conditioner, and I’ll definitely be purchasing a bigger bottle next time!
