Alberto Balsam Tea Tree Tingle Herbal Shampoo
Advantages: Smells nice, freshens and cleans scalp and hair, non-drying, removes build up, cheap
Disadvantages: none at all!
I've probably used every Alberto Balsam shampoo there is by now, it's the most used brand in our house as my mam just goes for cheap products and these are just £1 each or often you can get them on offer at 4 for £3 or things like that. Out of all the different varieties I think this Tea Tree Tingle one is the one that I would always keep going back to.
It comes in a tall cylindrical bottle which is clear so you can always see easily when you're running out. It has a flip top lid which makes it easy and convenient to use in the shower. Although the packaging is quite plain and simple, as you would expect from something so cheap, I don't think it looks as cheap as it is.
The shampoo is a minty green colour and has a thick consistency. The scent is very fresh, to me it mainly smells minty but it does have a hint of tea tree in the background. I only need a small amount of this shampoo to cover all of my hair as it lathers really quickly and easily and is very easy to massage through my hair. It does feel very cooling on my scalp, but I wouldn't say it actually tingles like some other minty shampoos do and like the name suggests it would.
It doesn't take long to rinse out and leaves my scalp feeling very refreshed afterwards. It doesn't really feel like it's done anything special to my hair at this point, it just feels clean, but it doesn't feel stripped or dried out like it has with other similar products.
Once my hair is dry after using it I feel that it is slightly more manageable than usual, but the main reason I like this shampoo is that it really gets rid of all the build-up in my hair and makes it look really bright and fresh and it feels super clean. It's not something I've used every day until recently because I had wrongly assumed it would dry my hair out with regular use, but I used to use it at least once a week to give my hair a deep clean and remove all the build up from the week.
All in all I think this is a great shampoo and at such a bargain price it's definitely worth trying.
Summary: An excellent shampoo at a bargain price
