I've got to admit that I was apprehensive. I tried Liz Earle's shampoo and conditioner range more than a year ago and didn't get on well. - I went for the Botanical shine shampoo for all hair types and the Botanical shine conditioner for greasy hair. I think where I went wrong was choosing the conditioner for greasy hair - it's obvious too me now, that as the conditioner is what I use on the length and ends of my hair, I should actually have chosen the one for dry hair. Duh.
Ah well, I was ready to try again with the Botanical shine treatment. It says it's for frizzy, coarse or very dry hair - my ends are all of these things, so we have a match.
This is a treatment conditioner, so not one you can leave on for a minute each day after washing - it's a once a week type product for me as it recommends leaving it to work its magic for 10 minutes or for up to 30 minutes. A hairdresser told me years ago that you can never leave a treatment on for too long and the longer you leave it the better, so I like to apply this whilst wallowing in the bath so that it gets plenty of time to penetrate into my hair.
As always with Liz Earle products, this has a super potent, fresh scent and it's crammed with natural ingredients making it a pleasure to use (just like my all time fave cleanse and polish). I can really see a difference after using this treatment - it leaves my hair instantly de-tangled and easier to blow-dry and over time my ends are starting to look a little less like the straw the donkey chewed and spat back out.
I've enjoyed using this conditioning treatment, and would probably consider trying the Botanical shine shampoo again if I correctly paired it with this conditioner or the daily one for drier hair.
Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment costs £14 for 150ml and you can get it direct from Liz Earle here.
