Alchemy Lavender & Anthyllis 24 Hour Intensive Moisture Leave-in Conditioner ★★★★
About: A leave-in conditioner for normal, dry and textured hair, packaged in a squeeze tube with a flip lid. Made with organic ingredients.
This is the first product from Al'chemy that I have tried, and I was very excited to see that, like the rest of the product range, Lavender & Anthyllis 24 Hour Intensive Moisture Leave-in Conditioner hasn’t been tested on animals. It is also free from sulfates, parabens, petrochemical cleansers, phthalates, DEA, silicones and artificial colours. The fact that it contains no harsh ingredients, and only 100% natural ingredients certainly got my interest. Al'chemy Leave-in Conditioner is a daily moisture treatment for all hair types. The inclusion of amino acids, antioxidants, herbal extracts, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oils add moisture, strength and help protect the hair from styling and environmental damage. I have long hair down to the middle of my back and although it is in fairly good condition, there is no denying that over the years it has been through tremendous abuse through numerous colouring and heat-styling sessions. The ends are therefore currently a little dry and stressed, and being inside a lot with the heater on, certainly isn’t helping the condition of my hair either. Al'chemy Leave-in Conditioner is subtly scented with deliciously natural herbal ingredients, including lavender, which I love, although this scent fades quickly once absorbed into the hair. Al'chemy Leave-in Conditioner is a thick cream, which can be applied to wet or dry hair de-frizz, add definition to curls, protect against heat styling or refresh the hairstyle between washes.
Being so thick and creamy, you could imagine the Leave-In conditioner would leave the hair feeling and looking very greasy or weighing it down, but that was far from the case. Used after washing my hair, it was instantly absorbed, and once dry, my hair was left looking and feeling soft, shiny, healthy, and full of volume. Just the tiniest amount is required, simply spread between hands and then run over hair, instantly smoothing out fly aways, and split ends. After having used Lavender & Anthyllis 24 Hour Intensive Moisture Leave-in Conditioner for a couple of weeks, I am happy to say that I feel that the condition of my hair has improved. The ends feel and look healthier, more moisturised, and I do not feel that it is in any way building up in my hair or weighing it down. The 150ml tube will last you a very long time and I think it is amazing value. I can certainly recommend the Al'chemy Leave-in Conditioner if you have normal to dry hair needing a moisture boost, and you are looking for a chemical-free and natural product, but do not want to compromise on quality and effectiveness. I will most definitely be checking out the rest of the Al'chemy product range as well as purchase the Leave-in Conditioner Away in future.
Tip: A word of caution: it is so concentrated that you only need a tiny bit of the Al'chemy Leave-in Conditioner as using too much will leave the hair feeling a little sticky.
