So I planned to start this post raving like a product maniac about one of the BEST deep conditioners I’d found in quite a long time. I’d used this product several times to repair my hair during the summer when it lacked moisture and needed just a tad more TLC. Back then I thought it worked like a charm! It was an effecive deep conditioner in that the directions specifically instructed you to let sit in hair for no less than 45 minutes. For me that’s all the convincing I needed, or assurance rather, to let me know that this company’s intent was to do what the product says it’s going to do. Here’s a list from a merchant’s site about it’s claims:
- A blend of science and nature.
- Ultra hydrating for strength.
- Naturally restores moisture.
- Olive oil has been recognized throughout the ages as a naturally nourishing therapy believed to have rejuvenating power.
- Rich in natural conditioning agents, olive oil infuses moisture to hair and scalp on contact.
- BioInfusion is a blend of science and nature that has combined olive oil and other natural ingredients with new technologies to create the finest quality products for relaxed and natural styles.
- Safe for color treated hair.
- BioInfusion olive oil deep conditioning treatment
Basically, all good…right?
Well, what I initially loved about his product is of course it’s initial properties. Olive Oil. This is it’s absoute main ingredient, but not necessarily it’s most active ingredient. Nonetheless what it claims to do it absolutely did. It doesn’t have the best slip for a conditioner, but alas most DEEP conditioners do not, my guess is because of it’s potency…(don’t quote me on that).
But in keeping true with my whole new year, new me, new healthy hair approach, I revisited the ingredient page and was mystified and saddend by what I discovered.
“Water – Aqua , Glycerin , Coconut Oil – Cocos Nucifera , Behentrimonium Methosulfate , Soybean Oil – Glycine Soja , Dimethicone”
Ahhhh!! The tenth or so ingredient from the top was a cone! How could this be….shame. I was surprised because…well it worked like a dream! I’d stumbled upon it by accident at a local Walgreens and thought I’d found something special, something that would help rejuvinate my hair when needed.
So as of now I’m a bit torn:-(. This was one of my favorite deep conditioners which means the hunt for a steady and new one is probably in full effect. I’m determined to stick to my regime of no crap product and won’t purchase this again….but…eh…still sucks. I found that my hair is annoyingly particular about which conditioners I do put into it, so going forward I might have to either concoct something or mix two seperate conditioners and keep the ‘ol fingers crossed.
