“ Brand: Asda / Type: Hair Shampoo / Hair type: normal hair „
When it comes to washing my hair it is something that I do daily. As someone who suffers with greasy roots and me smoking all over it I'm really fussy about it. However because my hair gets washed so much I am often running out of shampoo which is why the other day when I spotted this in my local Asda store reduced to 49p a bottle instead of its usual price of 99p I decided to pick this up along with the apple scented shampoo too but I really had high hopes for this one being suitable for my barnet cos it is meant for normal/greasy hair which I think I own!
The bottle is see-through plastic and slightly frosted white with a flip-top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole. On the front of the bottle we are simply told that it is Asda 'Essential Care' Citrus Shampoo 'Normal or Greasy Hair 'Gently cleanses, suitable for all the family'. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, warnings and ingredients are listed, the size is stated which is 750ml and contact details for Asda are given. This is a very simple looking bottle but tidy enough, unisex and informative enough as well.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Back Of The Bottle:
Leaves hair feeling soft, shiny and manageable
Suitable for all the family
Well the shampoo is light yellow in colour and transparent and pretty runny with a really nice and sweet, natural and sharp zesty lemon fragrance. It is a fresh unisex aroma and wakes me right up first thing when I use it!
This lathers up quickly and easily, feels smooth as it is being applied and you don't need very much of it at all per application..... so economical this really is.
You can of course lather, rinse and repeat if you want to before using conditioner (optional) and I always wash my hair twice with this just to make sure my hair really is clean.
After using this shampoo the fragrance lingers in the hair for a good couple of hours and hair is left feeling, as promised soft and manageable, and it makes my mop look and feel very clean indeed, keeps my greasy roots at bay without drying out any hair I don't want/need it to and all in all this is a great cheap alternative to others that I use and I'm happy to use this frequently without it upsetting my hair at all.
A very good buy that I'm impressed with, I love the smell, the results and the large size for the pennies you pay!
Only available in Asda stores.
Asda Citrus Shampoo comes packaged in a clear plastic bottle with a white screw top lid and is pretty basic to look at with a nice golden yellow colour liquid inside.
To use simply open the top and dispense a blob of shampoo on to your hand and then massage this in to wet hair. I did find the shampoo to be very fast flowing so be wary of this to prevent yourself using more than you need. The shampoo lathers up pretty well and does indeed have a nice citrus scent as you'd expect. I suffer from quite greasy hair and normally need to wash it at least every 1 1/2 days, I had very greasy hair when I used this as I had not washed it for over 2 days (eww!), I lathered this up and scrubbed it deep down to my roots. Once finished I simply rinsed away the shampoo and then once I got out of the bath I left my hair to dry naturally and was very pleased that it was no longer greasy and had a nice citrus smell to it for quite a few hours afterwards.
A 750ml bottle is available from Asda stores and www.asda.co.uk for 73p and this is a bargain price. My shampoo smells nice & the scent lasted on my hair for a good few hours. I still needed to wash my hair again within 1 1/2 - 2 days but I was pleased with the results that I got for such a cheap price. I will be using this again and I would thoroughly recommend it as a good, cheap shampoo for almost all of the family. I am rating this shampoo 5/5 because of the above reasons.
Finding myself terribly low on both money and shampoo a few months ago, I decided to look for a cheap new shampoo in Asda, in the hope that it would at least be good enough to do until I could afford something better. Browsing the beauty aisle in my local Asda, I came across this 750ml bottle of Citrus shampoo for only 57p, and since this seemed like an incredible bargain, I bought it.
I didn't really have the highest of hopes for this shampoo, as there's not many things that you can get for 57p that are outstanding quality (except for chocolate, of course). I knew from the bottle that it was citrus flavoured, and to be honest I sort of expected it to smell a bit like lemon-scented cleaning products. This shampoo, however, surpassed all of my expectations, and is actually brilliant.
Using this shampoo is very simple - pour some onto your hands in the bath or shower and massage it into your hair, wash off, and repeat as necessary. This shampoo has a very runny consistency, and I found that quite a lot came out of the bottle at once, but as I have long hair this is exactly what I needed anyway. Once or twice I managed to get out a smaller amount, and found that it cleaned my hair well even when I didn't use as much of it. After washing my hair with this shampoo in the morning, my hair stayed nice and clean all day, and it wasn't until evenings that my hair started to look past its best. That might not sound too great for people who only wash their hair a couple of times a week, but since I have the type of hair which needs washing everyday, I can't really expect anything more from a shampoo of any price.
As well as the usage, I was impressed with the smell of this shampoo. It didn't smell anything like cleaning products, as I had worried, and in fact smelt refreshing and very lemony, and filled my shower with a pleasant scent while I washed my hair. After I'd washed and dried my hair, I could still smell the citrus scent on my hair when I sniffed it for a couple of hours, though I couldn't sense it without making the effort to.
So, in conclusion, this is a great shampoo, especially when you consider that it only costs 57p. My 750ml bottle lasted me for almost 3 months, though I reckon I could have gotten it to last longer if I'd used slightly less of it each day. I would recommend this shampoo to anyone who is a bit strapped for cash at the moment, or who fancies trying something new. I liked this shampoo so much that I decided to try the Apple version, which I also loved, but as far as I know these are the only two products in this range. I would probably buy this shampoo again, especially when I'm short on money, though I'm going to try some other shampoos from elsewhere first to see if I can find something even better!
We go through a heck of a lot of shampoo in our family as we all wash our hair daily. Usually I buy branded shampoos when they are on offer in Boots, Tesco, Qualitysave etc so that we never run out.
However, the other day whilst pottering around one of the pound shops I noticed they were selling this Asda Citrus Shampoo for just 50p so thought I'd give it a try.
To be honest I wasn't expecting much for this price but was pleasantly surprised & if I see it again will definately be buying more.
The bottle is very basic & the writing difficult to read but I don't really care for this price - 750ml is a large size & although it's not too attractive I think it was an excellent buy.
It's suitable for normal/ greasy hair & is said to be suitable for all the family. I'm not sure whether it would be OK for youngsters though as it smells very lemony & strong.
The texture is good as it's not too runny & it's easy to squeeze just the amount you need as the bottle has a flop-top & good-sized hole for pouring.
I'm the only one who has tried it in our family so far but I've found the results very good.
It's left my hair feeling very clean & shiny with none of that 'film' that I sometimes experience with heavier/ more expensive shampoos.
- an excellent buy.
- really lemony/ citrusy.
- good texture.
- no waste.
- no drips/ gunge around the top after use.
- left my hair feeling soft & looking shiny.
- definately worth a try.
