      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      -

      I'm one of those girls who can't resist trying out new toiletries . As a result my bathroom is cluttered with half empty bottles of various shampoos, conditioners, moisturisers and such . I have made it my mission to condense this down by christmas, using up all these half empty products .

      A count of shampoos in my bathroom yeilds 27 bottles of various brands and scents . You'd think I was Rapunzel, rather than a 28 year old with a sensible bob! Anyway, the product I am currently attempting to empty (hence this review) is the Asda Natural Extracts Coconut and Milk Shampoo.

      Having purchased this heaven knows how long ago, I can't tell you what motivated this particular choice, but I imagine it might have been the scent, with coconut being my favourite smell . The bottle is a flexible clear plastic bottle, through which you can clearly see the shampoo, which itself is clear in colour, and I believe it currently retails at a little under a pound a bottle .

      Squeezing this out of the bottle is easy - a little too easy, as I find the shamppo quite thin, and it could be easy to dispense too much. It lathers nicely into the hair though, producing masses of bubbles, and releasing a rich, deep coconut smell. The smell isn't sweet and artificial like many coconut scents - it smells real and fresh .

      The smell lingers long after the bubbles are washed out, with every turn of the head releasing a little of the coconut scent. My boyfriend in particular is very complimentary when I use this shampoo, both of the smell and of my hair, which really does seem to get along nicely with this shampoo - clean, fresh, and not at all weighed down .

      I certainly recommend this shampoo - beauty on a budget with a wonderful fresh scent, 5 stars .

        A great product at a great price

        I have curly hair. For those of you similarly blessed you will know what that means when it come to shampoo buying! My hair is so dry. Sometimes it more resembles frizzy straw!
        I also have 4 daughters, that have also been blessed with my hair!Finding a shampoo that meets all our needs is difficult to say the least
        Recently whilst in Asda I spotted this,and thought it was worth a try. I like coconut things, I know they tend to be moisturising.

        **The Product**

        The shampoo comes in simple looking clear bottle. I actually quite like the packaging. Simple, yet stylish. Also being a clear bottle makes it easy to see how much you've got left!
        The shampoo is also clear. It has a pleasent coconut frgrance. Subtle, yet with that lovely rich coconut scent! It lathers up nicely, so a little goes a long way!
        It leaves your hair feeling nice and clean, but not totally stripped and over dryed like some shampoos can.It also is great for dealing with tangles and followed up with asda coconut conditioner it leaves your hair soft and easy to comb.

        **summary**

        This is a great product.
        lovely scent.
        Graet price
        Leaves hair soft and moisturised.

        A bargain price for coconutty heavenly hair

        I have been pleasantly surprised by the Asda Essential Care Natural Extracts range for haircare. Over the years I have tried numerous shampoos and conditioners. I am not a particularly loyal shopper to any brand, and am generally happy to try most brands once. If they're no good, then I simply do not buy them again. Depending on what's on offer and how tight my shopping budget is, depends on how much I spend, and as the purse strings are very tight at the moment, I decided to give this product a try, priced at a very modest £1 for 400ml for an individual bottle on it's own, or four 400ml bottles from the range for £3.

        The 'Natural Extracts Moisturising Coconut Milk and Tiare Flower Shampoo' is packaged in a plastic clear bottle with a green lid that secures firmly and opens to reveal a small hole for dispensing the shampoo. The bottle is a decent size (400ml) without being overbearing and too large for the shower, but one that lasts a good length of time. The bottle is curvey and feels nice to hold, and considering it is a relatively cheap product, it does not look cheap or out of place in a modest bathroom or shower room. As my bathroom is neuturally decorated, I find this bottle fits in well, and the 'asda essential care' label is so small on the bottle it is not noticeably a cheaper brand of shampoo and so I don't mind having it on display.

        The shampoo itself is cocount milk colour which is an ivory colour and semi translucent. The shampoo is a good consistency, being as thick as other brands and not too runny as is sometimes found with cheaper brands.

        When using the shampoo, I found that I required the same amount of product as usual and that it forms into a bubbly, foamy lather easily on wet hair and attaches to and cleans the hair really well and thoroughly. The shampoo then rinses out of the hair with ease, leaving cleansed, refreshed hair.

        By far the biggest asset this shampoo has, is it's scent. The coconut smell is gorgeous (if you like that scent) and as you wash your hair it fills the bathroom or shower room with a soft aroma of coconut that is heaven. I don't find the smell overpowering, and love the smell of my hair when using the shampoo. I find that my hair holds the scent lightly which I love and my bathroom smells devine for a good couple of hours after shampooing with this product.

        According to the detail on the bottle, the shampoo is specially formulated with natural extract of coconut milk, tiare flower and vitamin B5 to help provide the hair with essential moisture. The shampoo also claims to leave hair feeling soft and silky and helps improve manageability. My experience of using this product is that I do agree with the above statements and have certainly found my hair to be soft, silky and moisturised.

        The product is best used in combination with the Asda Natural Extracts Coconut and Tiare Flower Conditioner which undoubtedly benefits the hair's silkiness, softness and manageability too.

        To conclude, I recommend this product as being an excellent value for money product and definitely worth a try. What's more, Asda have a 'try me, love me' policy which allows you to try the product and if you're not 100% happy with the product they will refund and replace. A risk free purchase - got to be worth a try!!

        Hope you like my review :-)

          Grab yourself a bargain!

          I'm obsessed with hair care but I'm also short of cash so I always try and buy some of the cheaper brands. I saw this at my local Asda for only £1, and they had an offer for 4 toiletries for £3. It claims to gently cleanse and leave hair soft, silky and more manageable.

          The thing I loved most about this shampoo is the smell - I absolutely adore the smell of coconut (who doesn't?). The new version has tiare flower in it instead of milk - I don't really know what a tiare flower is meant to smell like but I guess it just softened the scent of coconut so it wasn't too over-powering.

          The shampoo lathers up ALOT which I love and you don't need to use very much to wash your hair really good. The result; well, my hair stayed clean for ages (It's been about a day and a half and it barely looks greasy) and it does look rather shiny but I can't say it did a huge amount to improve the softness and manageability. However it does say it works best with the conditioner from the same range and conditioner is generally more responsible for softness and shine anyway. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone who doesn't mind trying out cheaper brands because it's great value for money.

            Great for your hair and your purse!

            I am not one for spending money unnecessarily if I can help it, shampoo is a product that I don't bother spending a fortune on, I really don't see the point. Cheap shampoos do the same job as expensive ones, so what exactly do you get for your money if you pay out for an expensive one? Just a brand name or celeb stylists name on the packaging!

            I like this range of shampoos but this one is my favourite! I colour my hair a lot and as I make it lighter than my natural colour it is rather dry so I need hair products to care for it and this shampoo is specifically for dry, damaged hair.

            This costs just 98p for 400ml.

            This variant is coconut and milk shampoo. It certainly smells of coconut but I cannot say that it smells of milk at all!

            Apparently it contains a UV filter to help protect against harsh effects of the sun and environment, how much do I believe that, not much! (I am referring to the fact that I don't believe it makes any difference not that I do not believe it has a UV filter element to it.)

            It is a little thin and I find that I need to use slightly more of this shampoo to get a decent lather than I do with some other shampoos but it still ends up being good value for money.

            My hair is always left feeling nice and clean and smells faintly or coconut, gorgeous!

            There is also a coconut and milk conditioner available in this range of hair products.

            I chop and change the shampoo I use but I do keep coming back to this one as I really like it.
