I have to say I’m a huge fan of green tea and any product with green tea added to it is sure to get my attention. You can imagine my delight when I found Back to Basics Green Tea Daily Moisturizing Conditioner. More opportunity to add green tea to my life!
This bottle of conditioner happened to catch my eye when I was visiting our local salon store. I was walking up and down the aisles, becoming more and more confused by the endless assortment of shampoos and conditioners available. As I turned the corner of the last aisle of shampoos and conditioners, the cute little green tea logo on the Back to Basics Daily Moisturizing Conditioner caught my eye, and pretty soon I was on my way home with a bottle.
After arriving home, my curiosity got the best of me. I was eager to try this new green tea concoction! When I opened the bottle, I immediately experienced the light, sweet scent of fragrant green tea. I proceeded to shampoo with my regular shampoo followed by a light application of the Back to Basics Green Tea Daily Moisturizing Conditioner.
The conditioner felt light and nongreasy on my fingertips with a natural fragrance that reminded me of a cool summer breeze after a fragrant rain storm. It made my normal conditioning session feel like a mini spa treatment But would it improve the look and feel of my hair?
I have color treated hair which presents a dual problem. My hair is dry due to the coloring and needs conditioning to have any sheen at all. It’s also fine which means most conditioners weigh it down, giving my hair a lackluster, flat appearance. It really makes finding the right conditioner a challenge!
Upon washing the conditioner out of my hair, I noted that it rinsed off cleanly, and left my wet hair with a soft, smooth, nongreasy feel. So far, I was quite pleased. But, would the effects hold up after a good blow dry?
Upon blow drying my freshly washed hair on the high setting, I immediately noticed how light and airy my hair felt with absolutely no trace of the greasiness I had experienced with conditioners I had used in the past. My hair actually had lift and body! I was pleased to say the least.
One small complaint, the wonderful green tea scent that was so apparent when I was using the conditioner was now difficult to detect. Maybe my nose had just become desensitized to the sweet scent. I’ll have to see how it plays out with future washings. I would love to have the scent stay strong throughout the day!
All in all, I would highly recommend this conditioner tO yone who needs conditioning that won’t weigh your hair down or cause it to be flat. The price is reasonable and I believe it would be difficult to find a better value for the dollar.
Next time you need a conditioner, give this fragrant formulation a try! It just may be your answer to bouncy, shiny hair without the added greasiness.
