(I don't follow these directions on the bottle, they're just included for the purpose of the review)

Ingredients:
Aqua (water), Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/capric Triglyceride, Stearamidropyl Dimethylamine, Lauroyl Lysine, Aspartic Acid, Cocus Nucifera (coconut) oil, Simmondsia Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Parfum (fragrance)

Verdict:
I had to update my review on this conditioner. At first I was only using it to co-wash but it makes an amazing deep conditioner. This leaves my hair buttery soft, this is definitely a staple of mine. I can comfortably say this is one of the best conditioners I have ever used.
Consistency of the conditioner
This is also a great inexpensive product if you want to co-wash your hair with a conditioner which does not have silicones. Silicones are a synthetic compound common in hair products that tend to cover the hair with a waterproof coating. Some silicones are water soluble the majority used in hair products are not and require sulphate or  Cocamidopropyl Betaine to remove. I have a post where I spoke a little about Cocamidopropyl Betaine. I tend to co-wash more than I shampoo therefore it is important for me to use products that are water soluble so that I don't get product buildup on my strands/scalp. I definitely notice the difference with cowashing with a silicone free conditioner, my hair definitely doesn't feel as weighed down and it is more effective at cleaning my hair. This conditioner feels great in my hair and it has sufficient slip, although once my hair dries it is not as soft as it could be. I paid £4.99 for 750 ml from either Superdrug or Boots which is a decent size for the price. The ingredients are okay, don't let the 'naturals' in the name fool you into thinking that this is an organic product because it's not... it just has a few natural ingredients. The ingredients do not bother me. Would I purchase again, definitely! The TRESemmé Naturals Vibrantly Smooth Conditioner gets a 5/5 stars.

    1. That sounds good. I used to add oils to my previous deep conditioners now I prefer to buy a conditioner which meets my needs without added additions.

      Thanks for sharing :)
