I was wanting for a hair conditioner again after my last one (Tresemme) finished. Hair conditioner is always one of the fastest things to finish in my experience especially in relation to shampoo.
Anyway, for all the goodness of Tresemme, I wanted a change as I suspected that the conditioner might be causing some unwanted acne, so I thought to try another brand so I could test my theory out.
I settled for Himalaya Herbals Protein Conditioner for normal hair. According to their sites (there are 2 sites Himalaya Herbals and Himalaya Herbal Healthcare) is a range of 100% natural and safe products with rare herbs collected from the foothills of the Himalayas hence the name.Â They have been around since 1930 and that’s a really long time.
This Protein promises to condition hair and nourish with natural proteins from ChickpeaÂ for the nourishment and health of your hair, Jasmine for the nourishment of hair and Thistle which promotes hair growth and prevents premature graying of hair.
I found the texture thick and creamy which is nice as it coats the hair well after washing. You don’t have to use very much unlike other conditioners. After leaving it on for a few minutes and then rinsing it out, my hair feels light and soft. It doesn’t tangle when I comb through and when it dries, it doesn’t feel heavy.
All in all, as a drugstore hair conditioner, I think it works amazingly well. I only have one gripe. The smell.
The hair conditioner smells of jasmine. I know of people who like the smell of jasmine so this won’t bother them. But for those who don’t like the smell, it can be a bit strong. It does wear off when it gets dry though. The smell lingers for a bit, but it gets less bothersome.
This brand can be found at most pharmacies and also at supermarkets and standalone Himalaya Herbals stores in selected locations. This bottle cost RM17.90 for400ml.
Pros: Leaves hair soft and smooth, Cheap
Cons: Strong Jasmine smell
