About 8 years ago, I walked into a salon and saw a girl with similar hair to mine, except it was very long, well groomed, it looked controlled and it was shiny.
I asked her what she used, she told me all about ABBA, NOURISHING CONDITIONER.
I was estatic, I purchased a bottle from the salon, and have been using it ever since.
It is a CONDITIONING TREATMENT which you can use a CONDITIONER & rinse out or you can use it as a LEAVE IN CONDITIONER.
In the last 3 years ABBA NOURISHING, has had a re-brand with new packaging and a name change, it is now called ABBA PURE GENTLE CONDITIONER. Same product, different name, new look.Here is my review:
KEY INGREDIENTS: ALOE VERA & FLOWER EXTRACT
★ABBA PURE GENTLE CONDITIONER has natural ingredients, so it is great for sensitive skin or scalp.
► Botanical Infusion of: [Water (Aqua) (Eau), Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Prunus Serotina (Wild Cherry) Bark Extract, Lavanclula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Flower Extract, Passiflora Incarnata Extract, Passiflora Incarnata Fruit Extract (*Passion Flower)], Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Lupin Amino Acids (150 mw), Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (1000 mw), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (2000 mw), Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Algin, Citric Acid, Limonene, Methyl para ben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, ABBA Aromatherapy Fragrance (Parfum).
It claims to do this: Nourishes, locks in moisture and provides protection from environmental stresses. Helps retain moisture.
In my hair, It actually does this: Tames & defines each and every curl. Provides my hair with nourishment and conditions it. When it drys my curls are soft, when I rinse it out my hair is smooth and silky.
RECOMMENDATION: My hair drinks ABBA PURE GENTLE CONDITIONER, so I buy the 1 litre. If you have curly hair, untamed hair, I definitely recommend you use ABBA Pure Gentle Conditioner every day as a leave in and once a week as a conditioner, so after you wash it condition with ABBA Pure & Gentle and rinse with and then towel dry your hair and re-apply as a leave in. You can use it with a mousse but I don't. PURE GENTLE works best with the ABBA PURE GENTLE SHAMPOO.
