I know it's been a minute, so I've decided to talk to you about my favorite rinse-out conditioner to date. Do you remember my post about Amsterdam? Well, in there I was telling you about all the goodies I bought while I was in the Netherlands... and the Giovanni Smooth As Silk Conditioner was one of them.

No parabens, lauryl or laureth sulfate, or dyes in this product.
Scent: Doesn't have a distinctive scent for me. Smells like a regular haircare product.
Consistency: Light and creamy.
Review: What can I say... it was love at first sight! Creamy but not too heavy, this conditioner is a dream come true for my hair. I usually use it as a rinse-out condish, but I have used it as deep conditioner as well. It makes detangling a breeze and my hair feels incredibly soft afterwards. And this conditioner delivers E-VE-RY-TIME! So yeah... you guessed it, I'm a fan.
But for those of you who have protein sensitive hair, note that it does contain hydrolyzed soy protein... so be careful. In my own regimen, it gives me the perfect balance with my other products that are mostly moisturizing and formulated without proteins.
Will I buy it again? Abso-f***ing-lutely! I love this conditioner and it works great for my hair.
What about you ladies? Have you ever tried any Giovanni's products? What do you think of them?
