Aveda Brilliant Conditioner Review-
Hello my pretties!
I had reviewed this Aveda Brilliant shampoo long back which I quite like but not really adore. This is its matching conditioner which I had picked up together since I always prefer using products of the same range together. Read on to know more.

My take on the Aveda Brilliant Conditioner-
The conditioner comes in a sturdy transparent plastic tube with a bright blue flip-top cap. It is both easy to use & carry around & does come in different sizes.
The conditioner is white in color with quite a thick lotion like consistency so thank god that it comes in a tube. On washed damp hair, it’s very easy to spread & feels light & nice on hair 🙂 I keep it on for 4-5 minutes & then rinse it off thoroughly. It washes off very easily without leaving behind any slippery/greasy consistency.
After my hair dried, I loved how soft & healthy my hair looked & felt, hydrated yet not at all weighed down <3 My frizz was not really tamed so I had to apply my regular leave-in anyway. It is a good lightweight conditioner for thinner hair types with less frizz or damage.
I have colored hair & this claims to protect chemically treated hair & it did work well in that department & did not really strip my hair out.
The fragrance is a fresh, clean, herbal scent like its matching shampoo which Aveda is always famous for & I love it 🙂 It doesn’t linger though.
Pros of the Aveda Brilliant Conditioner:
1> Easy, sturdy tube packaging with flip-top cap- comes in different sizes.
2> Spreads easily on hair & easy to rinse off.
3> Does not weigh down hair.
4> Good for thinner hair types.
5> Silicone & paraben free.
6> Fresh, herbal scent.
7> Helps hair color last longer.
Cons of the Aveda Brilliant Conditioner:
Not really for my hair type as it battles neither my dryness nor frizz.
My Rating: 3.8/5!
Do I recommend the Aveda Brilliant Conditioner?
Aveda Brilliant Conditioner is a lightweight color protecting conditioner which makes hair nice & soft without weighing it down. It does not combat dryness or frizz so I would not recommend it for my similar hair type.
