L’occitane Olive Tree Conditioner Review

by Parita on April 27, 2012 · 43 comments

Hey Gals,

Today I’ll be reviewing L’occitane Olive Tree Conditioner. I was introduced to L’occitane products by Rati of course :) During the month of Jan L’occitane was having upto 30% off sale and I grabbed few of the products including this conditioner. I was very impressed with their delivery which I got in 2 days!

L'occitane Olive Tree Conditioner

What does the co say about this product:-
Fast-acting detangling care – for healthy, shiny hair.

This hair conditioner with olive tree extracts immediately detangles and smoothes your hair, leaving it light and easy to style. Enriched with white wine vinegar and lemon extract, it enhances shine and leaves hair naturally radiant. Silicone-free.

This product is free from:
parabens, synthetic colourants, mineral oils, animal ingredients, chemical sun filters, formol or formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, phtalates, silicone, triclosan, BHA, BHT, EDTA

My experience:-
As you all know I have really long hair which are prone to being tangled a lot!! I dont like using a serum as it makes my hair oily and really weigh’s it down. So I was in search of a conditioner which helps to detangle my hair making it smooth and soft! When I saw this olive oil range shampoo n conditioner both on sale without any thoughts I grabbed them! I had read some good reviews on this shampoo as it was mild enough for everyday wash and also helped in de-tangling the hair!! :D

 L'occitane Olive Tree Conditioner

The conditioner comes in a 250 ml bottle and costs 995 MRP! The bottle is very very classy! I love its packing a lot! It reminds of greek goddess for some reason..may be the combination of bronze/golden and cream colors :D The texture of the conditioner is quite thick and cream almost like body butters! I love love the fragrance! Its so mild and pleasant with hints of olive oil in it. It is very soothing!

It does what it claims! It does help in making my hair smooth and tangle free which i totally love! Also i have noticed when using this conditioner hair fall is less as compared to using other chemical based products! Its totally natural without any harmful chemicals in it! Also it does not weigh down your hair or make it oily! Some of us may think that as it has olive oil in it, it may make the hair oily but really it doesnt! I have quite dry n damaged hair so i love the olive oil present in it!

Over all I would say its a great conditioner but its quite expensive! For girls having long hair like me..it will not even last for a month :( Spending 1000 bucks a month on conditioner may not be feasible for everyday. Also apart from being expensive the only other problem I found was with the dispenser! Its horribly tiny and due to heavy consistency of the cream it does not come out that easily! I always unscrew the top and remove the conditioner!

Pros:-

  • All natural without any harmful chemicals
  • Does what it claims! Helps in detangling the hair
  •  Mild enough to be used on everyday basis
  •  Pleasant and soothing fragrance
  •  I have seen less hair fall while washing my hair
  •  Does not weigh down your hair

Cons:-

  • Very expensive product and especially for girls having long hair like mine this conditioner wont last for more than a month if you wash your hair 3 times a week on avg
  • Dispenser is tiny and the product does not come out properly!

Rating :- 3.9 out of 5

Price:- 995 for 250 ml but i got it for around 650 on 30% discount!

I made this Devils Food White Out Cake yesterday for an order, sharing a pic of it with you all :)
Also at midnight I saw Rati’s post so dedicating this cake to Sanjeev ji and Mr n Mrs Jomol! God Bless you all :)

the review of the conditioner is also really nice but yeah the price is a little steep. :( any other shampoo that comes close to this but dosent cost quite that much? (*wink wink*)..

Parita April 27, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Thanks Aru! yeah def the price is quite on higher side and even m not gonna repurchase..i toh finished off the bottle in like 6 to 8 washes only :(
I think Fab India’s aloe conditioner would come close to this!

Reply

Parita April 27, 2012 at 1:29 pm

I have their 2 solid perfumes..i was so so intrigued by them! so once found on sale grabbed 2 of them but to be very honest m not very happy with them as they are so mild and fragrance disappears in couple of hours..not long lasting at all..but i would still say must a try atleast once!
Thanks!

You are right about the cost of that shampoo/conditioner. Even I pay that much for natural shampoo in Oz, but I have a trick. I find I don’t need to use too much because I use the shampoo closer to my scalp and run the excess foam down, and then I use conditioner away from the scalp. My hair is only 3/4 of the way down my back, I use about a tablespoon of each product.

Thanks for the review, Parita. I love the shampoo of this range but hadn’t given a thought about the conditioner. Does it do anything for volume?

And Oh my God! What a gorgeous cake! You made it for an order? :O What do you do? Also, can you adopt me? I swear I will be not be an obstruction. Will do all your odd jobs for a cake a day. :D
