My Review:
I have been using the Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment balm for over 2 months now and I love love love this product. It has a pleasant sweet smell and is of a very thick consistency so a little definitely goes a long way and you can turn the tub upside down and guarantee the product would not budge. I had high hopes for this conditioner, especially as it is a higher end product and I was not disappointed. I initially bought this in the 250ml size on sale for £11.14 but after one use I was back online and managed to get the 500ml on special offer for £17.34 ….

When applying the conditioner to my hair, I knew it was able to work magic, I could finger detangle my hair before I had even sat under the hood dryer and when rinsed out my hair felt so soft, silky, detangled and most importantly so hydrated. I tend to always deep condition with heat for 20-60 minutes but this conditioner advises to leave on for just 3-5 minutes and I have to admit I was highly sceptical about this, however I can tell you now, that I have tried this as instructed and I had excellent results in just 5 minutes so this is also perfect for those rush washdays too. As you can see from the ingredients, this conditioner is full of silicones, so for some of you this conditioner may be a no-no but I am prepared to oversee this factor as this conditioner makes my hair feel absolutely amazing and I will use my clarifying shampoo more often when required to ensure I am not left with build-up in my hair.

This has easily become my staple deep conditioner and I am not too discouraged by the price as there seem to be plenty of deals online for Joico products and for me it is definitely worth paying the extra for how my hair is left feeling. I ordered another tub a few days ago in the black sale as I found another website selling this product for £14.70 (500ml tub) which is just under three pounds cheaper than what I got it for last time and hey, every penny counts...

Have you tried the Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm, if so are you as in love as I am?
