Whilst I was in Lincoln last week, I picked up the April copy of Glamour magazine which had a free trial bottle of James Brown London Gorgeously Rich Moisturising Conditioner with it. A chance to try something new for free - fabulous! To see what I thought about it, read on :)

What James Brown London say: There's nothing more seductive than hair with a healthy sheen. That's why I've added murumuru butter and pro-vitamin B5 to this conditioner to nourish the hair to a glossy shimmer. To add to your charms, the fragrance creates an entrancing layering effect. The feminine scent is released with every turn of your head.
What I say: Well, if this is the scent that James Brown and Kate Moss came up with (yes it's the result of their professional partnership) then I have to say they have a nose, and the stomach, for stronger scents. I think this conditioner smells like a really strong, vile, men's aftershave. Yuck. If you can't stand heavily scented products then I'd give this a miss.
What James Brown London say: Apply from mid-lengths to tips or where hair is excessively dry. Leave for 2 minutes to hydrate hair. Rinse thoroughly.
What I say: After following the instructions, I'm left with beautifully soft, silky hair that's manageable. I found after blow-drying it stayed pretty sleek and soft. Usually my hair resembles some wild untamed creature when blow dried, but not this time. Thumbs up from me :)
Price: £5.99 (Currently 3 for 2 on professional haircare)
Availability: Larger Boots stores nationwide
Repurchase: Maybe. I like what the product does, but I cannot stand the smell. A shame really.
