I love boots products. I have oily scalp and dry hair. Anyways I have been searching for a good daily use conditioner along with my shampoo since a long time. Finally i landed upon boots marine shampoo. Along with that the SA used to give me seaweed conditioner. However the last time i went they were out of stock so i bought the bergamot conditioner instead. Lets see how this one worked.

My experience with boots bergamot conditioner:-
I have bought this conditioner for the first time however i have been using boots products since a long time. I have a greasy scalp with dry hair. So i use marine shampoo along with bergamot conditioner. The bottle lasts for a long time. There is need for very little of the product to apply on all of my hair. As i have medium hair.
I like the smell of this conditioner. Paired with the no smell of marine shampoo this one seems to really be a mild pleasant smell which lingers on . However as i have dry hair and this shampoo is meant for greasy hair it tends to dry out my hair more and also weighs it down. After a while i find my hair going limp since i started using this product. I am going to finish this bottle by using very small quantities just on the ends and not more. Then i am going to switch to lighter conditioner. I cannot stop using a conditioner altogether because of my intensive dry hair. Not using a conditioner makes them all frizzy and hay wire.
It has been a month since i am using this product and it has not made much of a difference to my hair. I don't find the conditioning effect long lasting. Once my hair is dry it kind of starts looking like a broom and gets very unmanageable. Till the time its not completely dry my hair feels all soft, but after that... No effect.
Pros of Boots Bergamot conditioner:
- Love the smell.
- Cheap enough
- Quantity lasts long enough.
- Makes my hair feel soft immediately after it is washed off.
Cons of Boots Bergamot conditioner:
- Availability is an issue. Get it at only some shops
- The packaging is not too great.
- Sometimes makes my hair very dry.
- Not really suitable for all hair types.
- Excessive use makes my hair very limp :( and i anyways have very fine hair so tends to weigh down my hair
My rating:-2/5. For quantity and smell.
Would i repurchase boots bergamot conditioner?
No its not that great . I prefer buying the boots seaweed conditioner to this.
Would i recommend boots bergamot conditioner?
Not working for me. However as it is for greasy hair, those who have may give it a try and see how it works for them.
Final Verdict:-It doesn't seem to do anything great.Not recommended
