~*~*~ Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Volume Conditioner ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Volume Conditioner is a hair conditioner that is used after shampooing your hair to add a nice softness to the hair and hopefully add volume which is sometimes a difficult job for a conditioner as they do tend to weight hair down.
~ Why did I buy it? ~
I bought it as I had run out of conditioner and remembered this whilst in Poundland. It was the bottle that first grabbed my attention as it is quite eye catching in it's bright purple/blue shade. I tend to buy matching shampoos and conditioners and this was no exception, I have been buying shampoos specifically for blonde/coloured hair but this looked quite snazzy on the shelf and priced at just £1 each I couldn't resist. I have bought Schwarzkopf Gliss products before and can remember being none too fussed on the shampoo but that the conditioner was good so I was prepared to try again, and if I didn't agree with the shampoo it wouldn't go to waste with there being five other people in the house, not that my littlest would be using it!
~ Is it any good? ~
As a conditioner is does a good job, I always follow my shampoo with conditioner as I feel my dry ended over processed hair does benefit from it. I applied a generous dollop of the conditioner to the whole of my hair and left it for a moment before rinsing it off and even whilst rinsing I could feel the massive difference to my hair, it felt smooth and soft which is a good thing for me. People with greasy roots may want to just apply this to the midsection and lengths of the hair so not to encourage the oils in the scalp.
After drying my hair I think it did look more bouncy than normal, it certainly was easy to manage without being flyaway, I didn't see a massive difference to the volume but there was an added bit of oomph that my hair sometimes lacks.
It has a slightly floral scent, but is more clean and fresh smelling than anything else.
~Overall opinion ~
I liked how it made my hair soft and shiny, and I like the fact there was an added bit of volume, but due to the name - Ultimate Volume I did expect more.
Due to the fact it did do something, not much, but something and that it left my hair shiny and soft, and quite fresh and nice smelling I will award this three stars, I think it is just an average conditioner that doesn't quite live up to it's name.
Thanks for reading :o) x
