Today’s review is on Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Restoring Conditioner. I bought this conditioner along with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisture Rich Shampoo thinking that since the conditioner contains cocoa butter, it would be extra moisturising and also I am buying it in conjunction with the shampoo of the same range so it might give extra benefits. Let’s see how it fared.
Palmer’s cocoa butter formula Restoring Conditioner uses the ultra moisturizing benefits of 100% pure cocoa butter and vitamin E to nourish hair and scalp leaving your hair beautifully moisturized and shiny. These luxurious moisturizers will soften and detangle your hair for easy styling and manageability. Natural peppermint oil is added to refresh hair and soothe dry scalp. A luscious minty chocolate fragrance is an added benefit to the senses.It contains no sulfates and no parabens.
How To Use:
After shampooing with palmer’s cocoa butter formula moisture rich shampoo apply generously to wet hair. For thick/coarse hair or dry, itchy scalp apply all over hair, including scalp. For finer hair, apply concentrating on ends. Leave on for up to 6 minutes And rinse thoroughly.
My Experience with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Restoring Conditioner:
I have medium length hair that reach till my mid back. My scalp is oily but my hair is dry and frizzy. I bought this conditioner along with a shampoo from the same range. Sadly, I didn’t like the shampoo too much and I am not fond of this conditioner either.
Like the shampoo, the first turn off is the overwhelming smell. Though I shouldn’t be surprised because they claim this product has minty chocolaty smell, but I didn’t know it would be this strong. Girls who absolutely love mint-chocolate might like it, but I am not a fan.
The conditioner comes in a sturdy packaging of a tube which is easy to use. Its consistency is more like of a cream than a lotion, and this is a problem for me. When I take the conditioner in my palm and rub it, a part of it always falls down on the ground. It is like how you are supposed to apply a cream (a good amount of it that too!) and rub it off on your hair.
Also, I feel I need a good amount of the conditioner to get the desired results. So, unlike the other conditioners, you need more of this one. However, this conditioner does better than its shampoo. So, if I have to repeat any of these from the same range, I might repeat this one.
It conditions hair well, but if I compare it with Sunsilk conditioner (the yellow one is my favorite), I feel it lags that one behind. But if I judge it without comparing it with other conditioners, I think it is okay. Not great but not too bad either.
Pros of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Restoring Conditioner:
- It conditions hair properly, that’s all.
Cons of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Restoring Conditioner:
- Overwhelming smell of minty chocolate. Although it is not as strong as in the shampoo of the same range, but still, it was too much for me.
- You need more of it. Since it is creamy in texture, you need more to apply it evenly on your hair.
