What I'd say: Silicone free. Sulfate free. Paraben free. And whatsmore CHEAP. I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted Alberto V05® Conditioner range in my local beauty retailer for only £1.30 (around a dollar or so), so I snapped up two; Alberto V05® Herbal Escape Clarifying Conditioner & Alberto V05® Moisture Milks Moisturising Conditioner, hoping that the conditioner were not 'to be good to be true' and they certainly weren't... 


I love this conditioner this will definately be a staple hair product for me. The conditioner has a delicious scent fruity scent which I can't get enough of. It felt really lovely when I applied it to my hair, however I did have to use quite a bit because of it's light consistency. When I washed it out my hair felt clean and smooth without that artificial, kind of feeling which you can get from conditioner with cones in them. The light consistency and ingredients ensure that there is no build up meaning I didn't have to shampoo my hair as often. In addition my hair is colour treated and the Alberto V05® Clarify Conditioner left it feeling soft, silky, silky and my curls looked quite defined. The conditioner is quite cheap £1.30 for 443ml; definitely value for money. And as I mention before there not one sight of a silicone, paraben or sulfate in sight.

Bottom line: It's rare a product actually stands by it's product description and it was so cheap as well. I would definitely encourage everyone to at least try this product.
