The £1.99 leave in conditioner that you need to buy right now
When you think of Aldi what do you think of? Cut price meat? Long queues? Anxiety inducing speed scanning?
I bet you £10 that affordable – and good – hair care doesn’t spring to mind.
If I’m going to be honest I never thought of heading to Aldi for haircare. I’m not a snob or anything I just like what I like and tend to stick to what I know. It was actually my friend who alerted me to this £1.99 leave in conditioner – She said it was the best thing she had ever used for detangling, it smells delicious and is extremely purse friendly…So obviously I had to give it a try as I’m always on the lookout for a new detangler as my hair is like a birds nest without it.
I remembered it at the last minute and it took me a while to find ‘cos the packaging is pretty plain. It boasts that it is a ‘miraculous’ leave in conditioner and after trying it out I would have to agree.
The two main ingredients are Panthenol – A molecule derived from Vitamin B-5 that is used commonly in hair and skin care. This is because it attracts moisture (apparently), keeping your hair glossy and hydrated. The other ingredient is jojoba oil from Australia – After doing some research it seems like a super ingredient…it moisturises without leaving any residue, strengthens, improves elasticity, adds shine, creates softness and it’s gentle on the scalp – I know, how good does all that sound?!
I probably spray my hair 4-5 times before giving my hair a shake up with my hands to try and disperse the product. I then brush it with my tangle teezer (if you haven’t got one…Why?) and it practically glides through the knots that seem accumulate when I wash it. I’m a bit of a baby and hate having my hair pulled so anything that makes the whole hair brushing experience a little bit easier is a winner in my book.
It also smells d-e-v-i-n-e (like berries) if you were wondering.
I then let my hair air dry (it takes years to dry with a hairdryer so I may aswell just let it drip dry) and once that process is complete I’m left with super soft, healthy looking locks. When trying out a new hair product I always worry that it will make my thin hair look lank and greasy but nope, it looked great.
For £1.99 you literally can’t go wrong and as I live round the corner from an Aldi I will never run out (unless they decide to stop stocking it…Please don’t Aldi!). Do you remember a few months ago when I raved on about the Bleach London hair elixir? Well it can get in the bin now cos I’ve got a new love (and cos I refuse to pay £4 for shipping cos I’m from Yorkshire and I’m tight).
5 out of 5 gold stars for sure.
