Welcome to my review. I would like to review my first ever V05 conditioner which is called “Smoothly Does It.” I relaxed my hair again and was in need of a good shampoo – my hairdresser suggested the Shiseido brand shampoo and conditioner, but regardless of which shampoo or conditioner I use, I am losing so much of hair, so I thought I would buy a budget one instead. I have seen V05 brand around for ages but it never interested me. It looked boring and very generic. However, their new collection with new packaging looked too cute for me to ignore. This new range comes in 5 variants and all the shampoo bottles are bright pink and conditioner bottles an off white colour. The packaging is really cute and girly and looks like a conditioner from a salon.
The secret to lustrous, smooth look is perfect prep. With silk extracts, this conditioner helps make hair glossy by smoothing each hair strand and controlling frizz. VO5 Smoothly does it Conditioner has been developed with Adaptive Haircare Technology™ which adjusts to you, giving the right level of nourishment for your hair.With extracts of Satin Silk and a subtle fruity fragrance with hints of jasmine and orange flower, this fabulous conditioner will unlock shine for a sleek and glossy transformation. Your hair will have no choice but to behave!
Directions To Use:
Work through the lengths of your hair, right to the ends. Leave it on for couple of minutes and rinse. For amazing results use after smoothly does it shampoo and for damage protection from heated styling tools.
My Experience with V05 Smoothly Does It Conditioner:
This product comes in a 300 ml sleek bottle with pretty packaging. I chose the variant “smoothly does it” because I had relaxed my hair. The flip top cap and the squeezable bottle is very convenient for use in the shower. This product smells fruity and has a professional fragrance, like what is used in salons.
Contains jojoba seed oil, apricot seed oil, sun flower seed oil and avocado oil to make hair smooth. This is a good conditioner which makes my hair soft and smooth, feels really smooth in the shower, but once I get out, it’s not that impressive. My hair is easy to detangle after I use this conditioner. This conditioner is quite lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh my hair down or make my hair limp. Because of this my hair feels a bit straight and bouncy after using this conditioner. I did not get the shampoo from the same variant, so I have used this conditioner with another V05 shampoo and a “clear” shampoo. So, I don’t know if the effect will be different if I have used the “Smoothly Does It” shampoo.
Pros of V05 Smoothly Does It Conditioner:
- Packaging and the bottle is attractive.
- The product smells good, has a fruity but professional fragrance.
- The price is reasonable.
- Does not make hair heavy or limp.
- Contains jojoba seed oil, apricot seed oil, sun flower seed oil and avocado oil to make hair smooth.
- The fragrance lingers in my hair for a couple of days.
- This product also claims to have in-built heat defence, but I do not use heat styling at the moment and not able to comment on this aspect.
- The flip top cap is easy to handle in the shower and the sleek bottle is easy to use.
Cons of V05 Smoothly Does It Conditioner:
- The smooth, straight look is very short lived.
- Nothing special about this conditioner except for the packaging and fragrance.
Would I Repurchase V05 Smoothly Does It Conditioner?
Not this one, but I would like to try the moisture conditioner called “Give Me Moisture” next.
