It feels good to be back after such a long time! Hope you all are great, as always! I had contracted a minor eye infection due to this hot weather. So, I was pampering myself and keeping myself away from all the gadgets. Today, I am reviewing this conditioner from Freeman. Freeman is usually known for its range of skincare products, but I really got intrigued towards the papaya and mango combo for my dull and brittle hair. So, I had to give this product a try! Let’s find out if it proved to be a treat or a trick for my hair!

My Experience with Freeman Papaya and Mango Moisture 3 Minute Conditioner:
Styling and chemical treatments have made my hair really brittle, dry and damaged, through the years. So, at present I am trying my best to stay away from hot tools as they would worsen the situation. Also, to treat my hair from all the present damage, I m trying out some good massage sessions, hair spas and some deep nourishing treatments. This product is the latest one that I have tried and it contains some amazing ingredients like mango, papaya, soy protein, rice protein, biotin and so on!
This hair conditioner comes in a bright, funky looking packaging that is purple and white in color with yellow and orange accents. The Inverted tube and a flip open cap make it very to use. Since, the tube is very lightweight, it can be taken to vacations and tours too. The product is white in color and the consistency is very thick and gooey. I love its consistency as it spreads very easily and evenly on the hair. The moment I apply it to my hair, my hair starts feeling instantly revitalised as if they have been dipped into some magic potion. Its tropical fragrance reminds one of beaches, for sure! To be more clear, it smells pretty much like papayas and mangoes. It lingers on for around two days and then starts fading.
I keep it on my hair for around 5-7 minutes in order to use it for deep conditioning. I use it only twice a week as using too much of it makes my hair greasy and also weighed down. Owing to its gooey consistency, it takes a bit of time to get completely removed from hair during wash. it helps in detangling the hair which helps to prevent breakage of brittle hair. Also, it leaves my hair shiny. This added boost of shine makes my hair color look as good as fresh, well almost. It makes my hair extremely soft, fresh and more healthy looking. It has also treated the dry ends of my hair and controlled frizz, but only for a short duration.
Overall, I would say, it deeply conditions the hair in a very good way and transforms dull hair into fresh and healthy looking. But, it has weighed my hair down too , at times and I do not like that at all! I always crave for more volume and it just gives me the opposite of that. So, I use it strictly only when I am at home and when I need to go out, I just skip it!

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Freeman Papaya and Mango Moisture 3 Minute Conditioner?
I will recommend it to people who have quite voluminous hair,otherwise it will make your hair more limp and greasy. Apart from this, I have really loved the way it has worked for me. But, I don’t think I am going to repurchase this one.
People who adore fruity masks, do give it a try to deeply condition your hair. But, when it comes to me, I would rather try a homemade blend of curd, mango, papaya and honey and see how that works for me.
