Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment review

You'll have heard me moaning before about my nightmare hair I'm sure, so you'll understand why I always jump at the chance to try any new products to tame it.  Although I have roots that get greasy stupidly fast, I have really dry and damaged ends, so I love a good intensive treatment and gleefully slapped Liz Earle's botanical shine treatment on my locks and hoped for the best.


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.
