Do you use multiple hair products to achieve your desired style and to look after your hairs health? I am a big fan of multi-beneficial products because not only does it cut down on the products u have to use, it also saves you important valued time u may not have when your in the midst of those manic mornings when time is against you. The Giovanni 2Chic Ultra-Sleek Leave-in Conditioner & Styling Elixir is your secret hair weapon to tame the most unruly of hair types thanks to its dual smoothing complex of Moroccan argan oil and the plant-sourced protein Brazilian phyto-keratin.

Presented in recyclable packaging with a pump dispenser that dispenses the perfect amount you wish to use, you receive 118ml of product in total. The styling elixir appears to be a lightweight conditioner in appearance and texture while the natural fragrance of the product is of coconut. Distributing through damp hair making sure every strand is covered, the penetrating 2-in-1 treatment and styling serum helps shield the hair from environmental elements and heat styling tools while providing other benefits which are:
  • Detangles.
  • Reduces Frizz.
  • Tames Flyaways.
  • Style Hair More Easily.
  • Protects From Static.
  • Heat Protectant.
  • Provides Softness And Shine. 
  • Colour-Safe For Coloured Hair.  
  • Prevents Split Ends.
  • Easy Comb-Out. 
I was impressed that there are no added parabens, lauryl or laureth sulfate, or dyes to this product and only uses 100% vegetarian ingredients while Giovanni is against any animal testing. The ingredients are as follows:
  • Aqua (purified water) - Purified water is excellent to provide some moisture to the hair and roots.
  • glycerin - Humectant that draws moisture from the environment around you for hydration and improved moisture content. 
  • stearyl alcohol - Fatty alcohol that is an emollient that provides slip to any conditioners while helping to bring softness to the hair. 
  • cetyl alcohol - Fatty alcohol that is an emollient that helps to detangle hair more easier.  
  • panthenol (pro-vitamin B-5) - Binding to the hair to coat and seal in moisture, it is great for dry hair types while also helping to improve shine and softness with its lightweight texture.
  • dimethicone - Forms a seal over the hair to help prevent moisture loss and smooth the cuticle down while also protecting the hair from heat styling tools (heat protectant). 
  • tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E) -  Reduces damage from oxidative stress and free radicals because of the vitamin's antioxidant properties it provides.
  • *argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil - The rich oil is high in essential fatty acids and vitamin E that helps tackle frizz and split ends by providing smoothness and softness to the hair.
  • hydrolyzed paullinia cupana (Brazilian cocoa) keratin extract [phyto-keratin] - A plant-sourced protein that provides strength to the hair while containing important amino acids your hair needs for health.
  • *aspalathus linearis (rooibos tea) extract - Rich in nutrients such as zinc, copper, and iron, its helps to strengthen any weak hair for improved condition. 
  • *cocos nucifera (coconut) oil - Rich in vitamins E and K, it helps to bring softness and lustre while also stopping protein loss each time you wash your hair because of the lower chain length fatty acids included which are lauric acid, capric acid, myristic acid and palmitic acid.
  • *macadamia ternifolia (macadamia) seed extract - Fatty acids help to nourish, strengthen, and improve shine while Macadamia oil is great for calming the hair of frizz and tangles.
  • *butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) extract - The fatty acids present help with processed, damaged and heat-treated hair by soothing, hydrating, and balancing the hair and scalp. 
  • polysorbate 60 - Keeps the products ingredients mixed together whilst having some conditioning benefits and a light waxy texture. 
  • sodium benzoate - Used as a preservative.
  • citric acid - Used as a preservative, to adjust the pH of a product, or can help strengthen the hair.
  • benzyl alcohol - A non-volatile alcohol used as a preservative that does not influence the health of your hair. 
  • phenoxyethanol - Preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria and enhances the products shelf life and safety.
  • natural fragrance - I smell coconut that soon disperses after about an hour. 
  • *USDA Certified Organic
I was really impressed on how lightweight this feels and looks on the hair because some "sleek" products can weigh the hair down and oversaturate, to make it appear greasy. I apply one to two pumps to damp hair, comb through, and drying time is quicker whilst my style is lightly held in place all day with movement. The other thing that impressed me was when i got caught in a down pour outside, my hair remained frizz free and did not curl (my hair goes curly when wet), it stayed smooth and felt hydrated! Apply the Giovanni 2Chic Ultra-Sleek Leave-in Conditioning & Styling Elixir for better hair days, rather than bad, when adding it into your hair care routine, x Neil.
