NEW Condish by Vive Pro for Curls -- CONE FREE!
 
Ok, how excited do I sound -- just stopped off at the grocery and found one of the new Vive pro lines -- it's in a light pink bottle:

Vive pro
Nutri gloss conditioner; pearl protein complex
for medium to long hair that's curly/wavy
defines curls with multi-dimensional shine
mirror shine, cashmere touch....

that's what the bottle says. I didn't see it on their website. They have a shampoo (SLS) and a condish (CONE FREE) and a weekly condish (think it had Amodimethicone)....anyway, I'm excited to try it and it's really nice and thick.

Anybody else see this? Try it? Here are the ingredients:
Aqua/Water, Behentrimonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Elaeis Guineenis/Palm Oil, Glycerin, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamin, Parfum/Fragrance, Octyldodecanol, Methylparaben, Hydroxyethylcellulos, Simondsia Chinsensis/Jojoba Seed Oil, Citric Acid, Myristyl Alcohol, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenylmethylpropional, Linalool, Citronellol, Alphaisomethylionone, Hydrolyzed Conchiolin protein, CI 17200/Red 33

Wow, no cones in a conditioner from Vive. Fan me, I think I'm going to faint.

hockeymomof3 01-25-2007 11:14 AM

I know! I was stunned!

teela1978 01-25-2007 12:32 PM

Wow, the ingredients sound great too, palm oil glycerin and jojoba oil all in a drugstore condish! I'll have to check out the new vive stuff now :)

That's hugely different than the original formula of "VIVE Pro Style & Body Infusing Conditioner, for curly/wavy hair that needs control" which was the formula driven toward wavy/curly hair.

Aqua/Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Quaternium - 87, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Behentrimonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum/Fragrance, Polysorbate 20, Candelilla Cera/Candelilla Wax, Methylparaben, C11-15 Pareth 7, C12-16 Pareth 9, Glycerin, Trideceth 12, Hexyl Cinnamal, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenylmethylpropional, Linalool, Amylcinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal

I didn't think they'd ever do a cone-free anything! I wonder if anyone here will try it out and let us know how it works.

I saw that conditioner at Eckerd a few weeks ago. I actually didn't even bother to pick up the bottle to read the ingredients because I assumed it would be full of cones. Glad to hear I was wrong. It would be great if a ds conditioner worked really well.

Take care,
Sherry

hmmm I might have to try it! I used a vive shampoo and condish I think that was targeted towards curly hair back in 2002.. but it always made my scalp itchy and scabby.... only brand that ever did that to me in my life. so I have stayed away from VIVE, but this one might be worth trying!

wild_sasparilla 01-28-2007 02:17 PM

Anybody try it yet? I'm veeeeerrrrry curious and veeeeeeeeeeerrrrrryyy stuck in my house. :lol:

I'm interested in this condish also There was one review on
www.makeupalley.com

It was a so-so review,

hockeymomof3 01-28-2007 07:21 PM

I haven't tried it yet...not sure if I like the smell either.... but it seems like it is pretty "silky" to the touch...

Oooh, good to know. I'll have to check that conditioner out. Currently I'm using the Vive smooth intense (laurabeth informed me a little while ago how it's been reformulated :( ) It had been a HG for me. Also I've been wanting to pick up some jojoba oil so the fact it's IN that conditioner is great.

sherry7899 01-29-2007 11:35 AM

Here is a direct link the review on makeup alley

Why would they make a conditioner for curly hair that makes your hair dry straighter? Well, maybe it won't do that to everyone. I'll wait until it's on sale to try it.

I also saw in Eckerds today a deep treatment in this line (1 x week for 3-5 minutes). It looked like no cones, too.

Leilani42 01-30-2007 08:44 PM

I had a moment of weakness at the drugstore today, and I purchased this condish and the L'Oreal Studio styler, Tightly Wound Curl Boosting Spray Gel. And my moment of weakness extended to me hopping into the shower as soon as I got home to play with my new goodies.

Gotta say, I really like both products. The condish was thick and creamy, and rather floral scented. Fantastic slip, and my hair felt so silky when I rinsed it out. It actually seemed to make my hair more silky than Elucence. :shock: I sprayed on the Tightly Wound stuff without any of my mainstay, re:coil, just to see how it would fare on its own. Turns out, it worked pretty well alone! AND it smells lovely. Kinda vanilla-ish, and some lily scent? I can't explain. I used quite a bit... thoroughly covered my hair with the spray, and then scrunched with a microfiber towel. When it was nearly dry, I scrunched in a bit of re:coil for good measure, and then a bit more of the gel.

I have very springy, voluminous curls. Even the bits of my hair that generally don't curl are nice and curly. And it seems softer and shinier than before, too.

I know you're supposed to only use one new product at a time, to see which one is making the difference, but I couldn't wait. :oops: I'll do more extensive testing later. But for now, my hair smells and looks lovely.

I'd take a picture, but I managed to step on my USB cable when it was plugged in, and I bent it out of shape. So, awesome. But both of these products get a thumbs up from me!

Oh... my hair is 2C/3A, shoulder length.
