Product Review: GVP Conditioning Balm

Name:  Generic Value Products Conditioning Balm

Ingredients:  Aqua/Water, Propylene Glycol, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Decyl Oleate, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum/Fragrance, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexyl Cinnamal, Rosmarinus Officinalis/Rosemary Leaf Extract, Hydrastis Canadensis/Golden Seal Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus/Bladderwack Extract, Methyl-2-Octynoate

Promise:  "Compare to Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm"; "Repairs Dry or Damaged Hair"

Consistency:  Similar to a very thick lotion

Scent:  It doesn't really have a strong scent.  It really just smells like what you would expect a plain
conditioner to smell like.
Results:  I've never tried the Matrix version, so I cannot speak to how it compares to that.  I bought this on a whim from Sally Beauty Supply.  This is my first attempt at a more commercial product since my big chop.  Previously, I stuck to organic and all natural products.  I really liked this product.  Due to the conditioner thickness, I had to leave it on my low porosity hair strands in the shower for a few minutes before it really worked.  However, when I did that, it melted away my tangles and gave my hair a lot of slip.  I also mixed it into protein deep conditioners a couple times to give my hair a moisture boost, and it worked great.  I never tried using it on it's own for deep conditioner. 

Love it or Dump it:  Love It!  I will repurchase this once I use up more of my stash.  I'm adding it to my favorites list.
