How to know if your conditioner REALLY moisturizes as well as it claims....

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

So I found an unique way of figuring out if your conditioner really moisturizes as great as it claims to.  So I was in the shower one day and I had ran out of my normal shaving lotion (I normally use Veet Hair Remover and/or a similar product I found at the Dollar Tree with a razor and end up with silky smooth legs) and decided instead of getting out of the shower...dripping everywhere to hunt under the sink I would just use some conditioner.  I grabbed the Bed Head urban anti-dotes shown above and legs were silky smooth and nick free.  

So the next time I went to take a shower, I hunted under the sink for more of my shaving lotion and found this White Rain conditioner shown above which I was using when I went to the pool (click here to see the post) for my hair while in the pool.  I thought...why not use this.  It will work just as well and I'll have a nice coconut smell.  THE WORST IDEA EVER!!!!!!!!!!!  I felt like I had tried to shave with sandpaper.  It was horrible!  Nicks silky smooth skin.  Total nightmare. 

So I thought...this has to be a true testament to how good that Bed Head stuff is for your hair.  Granted I am comparing it to White Rain...the cheapest conditioner out there but that is all I had.  So what kind of conditioner do you use?  Have you tried to shave with it?  What were the results?  I am dying to know if Pantene can pass the test?  Anyone use Pantene?


  1. I love using Suave, Pantene strips the natural oil out. I even use Suave coconut conditioner and leave it in my hair no rinsing. love the smell and its great for shaving! As far as shaving cream I use suave coconut spa body wash works great its has those little granules in it that scrubs while you shave smooth as silk!

  2. I use conditioner or baby oil/gel. Works great!

  3. Hahaha too funny!! I LOVE Pureology or Redken :)

  4. Claudia - Suave stuff is great & cheap!! I love their body scrubs!!

    Elle - does the baby oil/gel make the floor slippery in the shower?

    Lindsay - I love Redken All Soft! I alternate it with BedHead.

    Thank you all for your comments!!

  5. nice tip.......very clever.following you now.please follow back if you like my blog. :)

  6. That's an excellent experiment! I actually shave my legs with Aveeno body wash and it does a good job and then afterwards I exfoliate it with Body Shop's Mango body scrub (this leaves my legs moisturized and shiny).

  7. Lita Kim - oooh I love Aveeno products...I used to use their shaving cream and I currently use their leave-in conditioner spray.

  8. I barely use conditioner these days, but I have L'oreal and Bumble and Bumble in my bath. xoxo

  9. I've never tried conditioner on my legs but it definitely makes a lot of sense!

  13. haha how funny!

    i recently started shaving
    with conditioner too!

    i used to complaint all the time
    how i would hate to shave when
    i had short little hair .. because
    it would irritate my skin really
    bad ... but i also hated having
    to wait for full grown hair

    my sister recommended the conditioner

    and i use a left over conditioner
    and guess what ? ITS PANTENE! lol

    works perfectly!
