Review: Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment for Frizzy, Coarse or Very Dry Hair

When Liz Earle released her long awaited hair care products last year, I fell in love with the Botanical Shine conditioner, finding that it's rich, slippy texture was a fabulous way to detangle and condition my dry, curly hair, particularly for a silicone free product.  So when I heard that Liz's next hair product was a treatment conditioner, I jumped at the chance to give it a go.

I was expecting the treatment to be an outrageously rich and thick affair, and so I was quite surprised to find it to be a medium thickness fluid, much like the original conditioner.  I also was surprised to find that it didn't have as much silky slip to the texture as the conditioner does either.  It took a reasonably large squirt to saturate the mid lengths and ends of my hair, and I had real trouble detangling with it, particularly the extra tangly bits at the nape of my neck.

Left on for twenty minutes, it did indeed leave my hair soft and shiny, but given the angst I went through to get it well distributed through my hair, I was expecting more.  I'd still far rather buy the original Botanical Shine conditioner - it's cheaper, easier to distribute through the hair, and leaves the hair feeling lovely.

If you'd like to try Liz Earle's Botanical Shine treatment, you'll find it at the Liz Earle website, where 150ml will set you back £14.
