Why I am not convinced with Cream Silk Fresh Hydration Conditioner

How often do you wash your hair? Are you like me who uses hair shampoo and hair conditioner separately? 

On a regular day like weekdays, I normally wash my hair once, in the morning when I go to work. My go-to shampoo and conditioner are separately and of different brands. Hair shampoo cannot be used alone as hair management since it will leave a frizzy and tangled looking hair. A shampoo is best for cleansing the hair from unwanted purities you can get outdoors- a good example is exposing under the sun or air pollution when traveling. Hair conditioner can add shine, condition your hair according to your style- making strands soft and smooth. 

As far as I remember, I have known and been using this brand of hair conditioner since I was in high school. Cream Silk was introduced to me by my cousins and since then it has been our brand. Although, it is always exciting to try out other brands in the market especially when something new comes out. But we always go back to Cream Silk!  

From the original variants of Cream Silk conditioner line, they came up with a new variety, which I purchased for free over at Sample Room, try before you buy, a site where you can avail products from different brands for FREE. So, when they presented the new variants of Cream Silk and I immediately got samples. 


Check out my samples I got from Sampleroom! 


I got two tube full-sized sample of Cream Silk Fresh Hydration Conditioner, 340ml + 170ml, one tube of 170ml Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Conditioner.

Now the verdict, after a couple of weeks of using, out of the two, I am not convinced with fresh hydration variant as what the brand claims. Upon opening the tube and saw the thin consistency of the product that I need to add triple the amount compared to the original variety of Cream Silk just to cover my shoulder length hair. So after the shower and drying my hair with a towel, hair still has tangles leaving some areas not manageable to comb. I also don't like the scent of this. After nine hours indoor and a total of an hour outdoor for the commute, my hair smells smoke from the public transport. I'm glad that I was able to get this for free before I buy it, it will be a total loss of money. 




This variety of Cream Silk passed my standards when it comes to hair conditioner, I like the consistency, the smell is lovely and it really gives that nourishing and smooth, straight feel after use. What I don't like is, it is too pricey compared to the original variety. But, if you have extra budget for hair products for use, you can invest in this one. You only need a small amount every use and it can give you that effect you wanted, most especially if you style your hair using a hair iron or blow dry it. 

Still, the brand Cream Silk still wins my heart when it comes to hair products for everyday use. I will be switching back to the original variety asap. 

Have you tried the above Cream Silk variety, what is your take on this?
