8 sleeps until Santa!
My hair, as I have said in previous posts, is a pride of mine. I love how long it is and how easy it is to work with. I look after my hair fairly well, with deep conditions occasionally and washing it every other / couple of days. The main part of my hair care is changing up my shampoo and conditioner every time I use up a product and so when I find new products that I can try out it excites me very much.
Recently I purchased these two lovely looking bottles above from a Boots on 3 for 2 – where else would I buy my beauty / hair care goodies?! They were pink which first enticed me ( I know, I know, don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but guys, PINK!) and they honestly looked like they would be great products. I naughtily flipped the cap on the conditioner first of all and it smelt divine! I was almost sold, my favourites (John Frieda Frizz Ease) were the ones I’d just ran out of and so I knew I was definitely looking for something new, what sold it, was the 3 for 2 on hair care. You just cannot refuse a good 3 for 2! So I snapped up these Trevor Sorbie ‘Straighten’ items and also one of my beloved John Frieda conditioners for when I was done and headed to the counter.
I was so excited to use these products (you can see my excitement in a haul post here) so you can imgaine my disappointment when I realised that they really didn’t do anything for my hair.I can’t say I saw much difference in my hair with the shampoo, but then clean is clean, I guess… However, Usually, I leave my conditioner in my hair for a good 5-10 minutes in the bath/shower whilst I relax or shave my legs and such things, etc etc… but I found that doing this with this conditioner just made my hair greasier than when I first stepped foot into the shower. A few days later when I washed my hair with these products again (let’s just say Batiste was my savior the couple days in between washes) I left the conditioner in for only a couple of seconds whilst I dispersed it throughout my hair, leaving only a tiny bit of it on the top of my head and making sure I washed it out thoroughly and quickly. Disappointment struck again as it still left my hair greasy beyond belief.
These aren’t a brand that I’d be willing to buy again, I think I’ll be sticking to my trusty John Frieda and Tony & Guy from now on. It’s sad because I always love finding new products that I get on with, but I guess you can’t love them all!
