Following on from yesterday's review of the Mark Hill MiracOILicious Nourishing Shampoo (click here to read), today's review is of the complementary conditioner.
I mentioned in yesterday's review that I've remained faithful to one brand of shampoo for a number of years but when it comes to conditioner, I tend to be a little more experimental. Free from parabens, Mark Hill MiracOILicious Nourishing Conditioner contains a blend of fourteen essential oils and plant extracts, including Moroccan Argan Oil, Ylang Ylang, and Palmarosa.
I appreciated the functionality of the tube packaging, although if I were to be fussy I'd say that I'd like more of a distinguishing feature e.g. a different coloured cap, between the shampoo & conditioner, however, I recognise that this isn't unusual.
Despite its nourishing name, the conditioner had a relatively lightweight texture. It had a sweet, candy-like fragrance but I didn't find it offensive or sickly & it doesn't linger in hair after use. A little goes a long way.
One of the key factors which I judge hair products by when reviewing is the rinsability and for me, this was the main downside of Mark Hill MiracOILicious Nourishing Conditioner. I found that it took both time & effort to thoroughly rinse the conditioner out of my hair & for that reason, I'd be unlikely to repurchase. After repeated use, I noticed that my sensitive scalp was becoming irritated and this would be another factor which would put me off repurchasing.
My hair was left feeling unbelievably soft and for that reason, I feel that it lives up to the nourishing claims. I was impressed to note that my fine hair wasn't weighted down. It looked more sleek & less frizzy than usual after blow drying and had a healthy movement.
Whilst I didn't overly enjoy using the conditioner owing to the scent and the rinsability, the results were encouraging.
Mark Hill MiracOILicious Nourishing Conditioner costs £6.49 for 250ml which is more than I was expecting so I'd be inclined to look out for offers on this if you were thinking of trying it.
