Couldn't rate the conditioner without the shampoo, could I?
This is a product aimed at customers, of this gorgeous and much-loved brand, with long hair.
What's the difference?
Not a lot, the ingredients lists look's identical and both has a series of EUCALYPTUS extracts in. There really isn't much difference in terms of oils in this.
For me, these deserve the hearts alone because the scalp is really cleansed due to the EUCALYPTUS alone, product build up is removed and you can feel the tingling sensation refreshing and renewing the scalp.
For me after using this a number of weeks I felt my roots were lifted and more bouncy, and with all AUSSIE products, the shine is amazing and especially the scent.
For it to market itself towards long hair is not good because this can work with any hair lengths, renewing the split ends and preventing damage, I do believe this product has strengthened my hair and I wasn't so quick to get a trim of the split ends because there were not as many or came through as quick as the normally do.
Long term [ No pun intended!] this is great for preventing damage to your hair, if the wording was different and not targeted at those customers with long hair I would give this five hearts but I am personally not sold on the fact this is for LONG hair alone.
This is 250ml for £4.69 and currently on a promotion in BOOTS, 3 for £10.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!
This shampoo is absolutely gorgeous. In my opinion it is one of the nicest shampoos out there, a lot better than the really expensive and supposed 'Professional' brands.
The first thing which you will notice about this shampoo is the smell, it is wonderfully divine. It smells like coconut but to be honest it's a lot better than other coconut smelling shampoos... it has a smell of its own it really does. When I wash my hair in this shampoo I can smell it all day. It has a truly scrumptious, sweet, fresh smell to it that I haven't experienced with other brands.
It also makes your hair shine and does not make it frizz or look dry. When you put your hand through your hair after using this shampoo it feels soft, light and silky... everything you want from a shampoo really.
Another amazing thing about this shampoo is how long it keeps your hair looking top notch. I have naturally greasy hair and with other brands I found I was washing my hair every day in order to keep it looking clean. Not with Aussie shampoo. Even after two or sometimes three days (although I rarely go this long without washing it) my hair is still super shiny and clean. I have long hair (below the shoulder) and I often find with other brands my hair looks lifeless and limp a day or so after washing, but with this shampoo I find it looks much more thick and full of life.
So, overall I more than recommend this shampoo. Give it a try you really won't be disappointed, and for the price you really can't go wrong.
I tend to swop and change my shampoo between five different brands l have found that work for me, depending what is on special offer and what my mood is when shopping. Aussie is one of the brands that suits my hair.
I like the smell of this, despite it being a little strange as it reminds me a bit of Benylin, the children's cough medicine, which I rather like the taste of! The shampoo is a think liquid, cream in colour and slightly silky looking. Although its thick it comes out of the flip cap quite easily.
The shampoo is called "Luscious Long" and I find it does keep my hair, which is thick, long and fizzy/curly feeling moisturised, especially on the ends. The shampoo is tailored towards destressed hair, and I do find when my hair is long, as it is at the moment, the ends of my hair have taken a lot more wear and tear and came become a bit untamed, even though they aren't split. The shapoo lathers well and my hair always feels really clean and soft after using this. I don't find it gets greasy quickly after washing, like with other shampoos I have tried in the past.
I have used a number of the Aussie shampoos including the "moist" one and the "frizz miracle". I have to say all the formulas I have tried seem to work just as well on me and I can't really tell the difference between each of the shampoo formulas after using them on my hair!
It's quite a simple, traditional shaped cream bottle with a plastic purple lid which has a push-down opener on the top of it. The bottle has 300ml of shampoo in.
It's a formula with blue mountain eucalyptus extract in it alongside the chemical ingredients which you would need to be a chemist to understand!
It's one of the more expensive brands I use costing around £3 a bottle. However I don't use much per wash, around a fifty pence piece blob and I also keep two shampoos on the go (one cheap, one more expensive) and rotate them as I find this stops my hair getting greasy so fast. It's almost as though if I use one product all the time on my hair it quickly becomes too used to it. They are very often on offer in Boots, I only buy them when they are on offer, and I just buy which ever formula of Aussie is on offer as they seem to all be very good for my hair.
I like this shampoo and would recommend it to people with long and frizzy or curly hair as it really does moisture and condition and leave hair feeling nice and clean.
My dear other half does very much like the Aussie range of hair care products and as I often pop into the bath or shower after her, I invariably end up using whatever shampoo etc she has left behind. One of the Aussie shampoos she has been using most recently has been the one called Long Luscious Shampoo. Whilst she does have long hair, (which hangs like a pair of slightly parted curtains around her face) I would not say it is particularly luscious. She has flat and greasy hair and is always on the lookout for something to help improve her look. I, on the other hand, do have very thick, coarse and wiry hair so I did not know what to expect the first time I sued this product, but I was in for a real surprise.
The bottle is a sort of cream coloured affair with a lilac / pink coloured lid which is quite annoying to use as I have to press down one end to get the other end to pop up so I can get the shampoo out of the bottle. Once out, I don't need to actually use a great deal of this as it lathers exceptionally well and soaps suds are everywhere. I use this to wash the hair on my head as well as my long facial beard. It rinses off well and doesn't leave the hair feeling tacky or brittle.
I swear I can actually feel my hair growing in volume though when I am rinsing this stuff out. I don't know what on earth they have put in it but I am guessing it is something which swells the cuticles of the hair shaft. I also swear I can detect the aroma of sweet bubblegum in this hair shampoo. It's not unpleasant, but it is strong smelling and this seems to hag around for a while after I have dried it off.
After I have dried myself off I must say I do feel as though my hair is in much better condition. There is also no need for me to have to use a separate conditioner when I use this shampoo, as it seems to detangle my hair too, which is an added bonus. My hair is much more manageable and I even think it might be working to a degree on my dear other half as her hair appears to be looking a little less lifeless lately than it has been.
The shampoo is expensive at £3.65 a bottle but I have noticed this week that it is on offer at 3 for 2 in our local Boots so we have stocked up on this as well as a lot of other products in the Aussie range.
Great stuff and highly recommended.
I have tried many different types of shampoo & condistioners over the years, some which have been very cheap and some which have been very pricey and to some extent I have found that you get what you pay for; very expensive ones (such as Joico, my personal favourite) do make a massive improvement to the condition of my hair, though I have found a few cheaper ones which are pretty good. However, out of every one I have ever tried this has to be the worst!!
I tried the moisturising one many moons ago and I remember not being massively impressed but whilst on a money saving mission recently I decided to give this a whirl.....I'd seen the adverts and read a couple of good reviews and I thought that as this particular one is designed for long hair it should suit me perfectly, I thought maybe the last time I just bought the wrong type for my hair. It wasn't massively cheap but it was on a special offer at Asda for '2 for £7' so I thought I'd give it a go and bought the conditioner as well.
The first time I used it - whilst the smell was gorgeous - my hair afterwards felt a little like straw and not only that but it looked dull - so much so that my mum commented as soon as she saw me! After the second use I swore I would never use it again. My hair felt and looked dreadful. It was difficult to style and I couldn't wait to switch back to my beloved Joico!!!
When i mentioned this to my hairdresser she said she has had a few clients say the same thing, that it does nothing for the condition of their hair, fades their colour and makes it awful to style. So I know it wasn't just me choosing the wrong type again. I have used supermarket own brands which have been better than this! For the price, their is really no excuse for it do make such a poor job of cleaning and conditioning my hair!
I love the hair care brand Aussie, and test out their products as often as I get a chance to.
This Luscious Long Shampoo left my hair in really nice condition as soon as I started to use it, and with continuous use, it dramaticly improved the quality of my hair.
It moisturised my hair and gave it a really great shine, but it did all this without making it greasy or weighing it down. It also has a really nice smell, which lasts on your hair until you next wash it.
This Shampoo is very good quality and I could not fault the actual product, but it is quite expensive compared to other shampoo products, so I prefer to use it occasionally rather than from day to day. Using it once in a while still left my hair in really good condition, so I'd say its a must for special occasions and the like.
I thought I'd write a review for this out of respect. This shampoo is gorgeous, and combined with the condition, it's a match made in heaven.
I have tried and used all sorts of shampoos from the really cheap ones to the famous (yet expensive) Keratase, and I honestly think this product beats most "designer" shampoos (as well as the cheap ones), and so for the price it is amazing.
I find this shampoo does not make your hair frizz, does not feel to "gluggly" on the hair, and does a thorough job of cleaning, whilst making it smell good. It doesn't dry my scalp, yet doesn't make my hair oily and cleans well. With this shampoo I find that I can clean my hair every other day rather than when using other shampoos I found myself cleaning my hair every day as they didn't do a good enough job. After using, my hair does feel soft and does show up "luscious" (I have slightly wavy hair).
As I do straighten my hair every day I find that using this shampoo along with the conditioner does inject the moisture back in, as obviously I am drying out my hair with heat. I get compliments on my hair (especially from my hairdresser) and she refuses to believe I straighten every day. I recall the time when I used cheaper shampoos for washing (like those tea tree ones that you get in sainsburies) and found that my hair did look dry and frizzy and did become greasy after a day.
What I thought was quite weird is that it is not actually made in Australia...and you can't seem to buy it in Australia... but I'm not complaining, I will keep buying so long as I don't move there! When I went out for a holiday there I had to actually buy a couple of bottles and take it with me as a friend informed me I could not buy it out there... that's how much I love it!
I have used the Aussie Haircare range off and on for the last few years. I do like the range but it used to be quite a bit more expensive than what it is now, or at least it used to seem pretty expensive. In the past it could often be found on offer in Boots, perhaps on a 3 for the price of 2, which brought the price down per unit, but you did have to spend nearly £10 at once I guess. My Asda has got pretty good over the years in bringing in designer haircare products at a not bad price and that is where I got my most recent bottle of this.
This comes in a 200ml bottle and costs around £3.70. May sound a bit expensive but this is a main brand name and also I find that a little of this goes a long way, so I don't have to use a large Blob of this to get a good lather.
The bottle looks like the picture. Nothing all that special looking and there seems to be a lot going on on the bottle. The flip top lid opens easy enough even with wet hands.
This has a Creamy consistency and is a pretty thick cream. Although I have long thick Hair I find that a blob the size of just over a £2 seems to give a good lather on my wet hair. This foams up well and rinses off easy enough too.
The scent of this is nice enough also. I know that with other Aussie products there is quite a sweet scent to them, and also they can be described as a kind of bubblegum scent, which this seems to have that kind of scent to it, but there is also a clean, fresh and slightly Creamy kind of scent.
After my Hair has been dried and straightened my Hair feels soft and quite light as well. The Folicle's seem pretty smooth and there is a nice sheen to my Hair which can sometimes be hard to get on Blonde Hair.
This Shampoo is suitable for all Hair types. Although this is aimed at long Hair i'm sure you could still use this on short hair as well.
A really good buy which makes my Hair look, feel and smell nice.
The Aussie range was on multi-buy recently in Boots, an offer of three of their products for a tenner was not to be missed so I picked up the shampoo, conditioner and intensive conditioner from the Luscious Long range. I've always loved the bubblegum scented 3-Minute Miracle but my long hair hasn't been in great condition since I had my last baby four months ago, so I thought trying a product especially developed for long hair would be worth a try.
The shampoo is gorgeous, easily one of the most cleansing shampoos I've used in a long time. It's so rich and creamy, the shampoo has what I think is a very thick consistency which makes massaging it through my hair and scalp feel such a luxurious experience. It doesn't lather particularly well, but this is a cosmetic issue that I never care much about - it's the shampoo which is cleaning your hair, not the bubbles! The same goes with washing up liquid and shower gels, although with those two my anti-marketing resolve weakens and I deliberately seek out the bubbliest!
It's fragranced, but the shampoo is definitely not as recognisable as the orgasmic 3-Minute Miracle. It's a fresh, clean smell which reminds me of some of the lovely Herbal Essences fragrances. Actually, it's stronger than any of those but the floral aspect is so pretty and feminine that Essences is the only brand I can think of to compare Luscious Long to. It does have a sweet base smell which is not unlike 3-Minute Miracle, but overall it's a different fragrance entirely.
After washing my hair with this shampoo I was immediately (and continually) impressed by how clean and soft it feels. I've used it both with and without the matching conditioner and my hair always feels fab, the softness is a constant and even the fragrance lingers longer than with other shampoos. My hair feels amazingly clean and despite the length there are very few tangles for my brush to get through, this is even when I haven't conditioner and for someone with almost waist length hair this is a minor miracle.
The clean, fresh feeling lasts on my hair throughout the day - I wash my hair every day usually but last week two days went past when I just couldn't be bothered. I could feel that my hair was still clean on the second day and I was able to give it a quick spruce-up with a dry shampoo. This isn't always possible for me as years of over-processing and over-washing has left my hair a nasty combination of dry and greasy, which only very frequent washing will combat.
This shampoo is excellent for my longer than average hair. It recognises the fact that although my hair may be greasy(ish!) at the roots, the ends actually need moisturising due to the fact that they have suffered from so many colours and chemicals over the years.
One other thing worth mentioning is the shine this shampoo leaves on my hair. Very long hair is rarely shiny as the ends have been dead for so long, but in all honestly after using Luscious Long my hair has an amazing shine from root to tip, even Mark's commented on it so it must be good!
The price for Aussie's Luscious Long shampoo when not on offer is £3.67, something which surprised me actually as I thought it would have been a couple of quid more expensive. For under £4 this is an absolute bargain, and a practically essential buy for anyone with long hair.
I have had long thick hair for many years now and the shampoo I use makes a dramatic difference to how easy or how not so easy it is to handle. It can be a pain to style so its important for me to pick the right product. I used to tend to buy Tresemme products for a long time until one day I came across these on offer in Boots. They will usually be on a 3 for 2 promotion or something similar with each bottle costing approximately £3.50 (plus advantage card points, of course!). They are also sold in other stores like Superdrug as well as supermarkets and other chemists.
Aussie are a brand that coincidentally, use Australian ingredients in their products, so they offer something different to your standard shampoo. The bottles tend to be cream with a purple logo on the front with a kangaroo on it and some informal writing about directions for use. To me they really ooze style and portray a modern image which is great for todays market. They do a range of other products like conditioners and hair treatments, as well as many other shampoos for different hair types such as coloured, frizzy etc.
Since I first bought this product I have continued to purchase it as my regular day to day shampoo as I find it works really well for me. The bottle has a sort of pop open type lid which comes up one side to dispense the product, usually by giving it a little squeeze. You don't need to use much as it is quite a thick consistency and lathers up really well giving an even coverage all over the hair. You will notice immediately that it smells amazing - really fresh and almost fruity and I have found this smell lingers on my hair for quite some time after washing it (just smelt my hair to check and I can smell it!). It is really effortless to wash out and it makes the whole washing your hair experience a little nicer. I tend to find a bottle of this will last me around 6 - 8 weeks but obviously that varies from person to person and how much shampoo you use each time.
In terms of after effects, my hair always feels smooth and replenished so I look forward to the next use. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone with long hair that struggles to hand it. Despite it being particularly targeted at those with long hair I can't see any reason why people with shorter hair wouldn't be able to use it too! A really great, high street shampoo for a pretty cheap price.
I first brought Aussie products about 3 years ago, and have been hooked on them ever since. I really don't know another brand that suits my hair as well as this. I have tried pantane, tresemme, garnier, own brands of supermarkets, but I feel that this one is the best out there currently to suit my hair needs. A quick description of my hair is that it is medium length, thick, black and gets greasy quickly. With most shampoos that I have previously tried, I would notice that they would lose their effectiveness after about 3-4 months, whereas with Aussie, the quality stays.
The luscious long hair shampoo helps to keep your hair smelling fresh, as well as moisturising it without making it greasy (this is something I find in all Aussie products though). It smells gorgeous, and leaves a professional finish. Even though it is recommended for long hair, mine isn't overally long and yet it still is no worried. It also does help to add volume and shine.
The product does not cost too much, and if you shop around offers are usually on e.g. 2 for six pounds. I cannot rate the conditioner because I don't use them, as shampoos are sufficient enough at cleaning my hair, and conditioners often leave it greasy.
So overall, slightly pricey at times but still worth the value if you want to care for your hair.
Those of you who have read my recent reviews will know that I raved about some cheaper shampoos and conditioners as being ones I always went back to even after having tried some more expensive ones. That was however before I tried Aussie's shampoos and conditioners. I originally bought them because they were the ones on offer at the time I went looking - I haven't looked back!
Who Are Aussie?
Aussie's shampoos and conditioners were first created and sold around thirty years ago. The products contain ingredients found in Australia such as Eucalyptus, Gum leaves and Jojoba seed oil and the formula is exactly the same now as it was when it was made 30 years ago.
Despite the name these products are no longer even sold in America and are now owned by Procter and Gamble who bought the company around 2003.
The bottle is made of opaque cream plastic with a purple plastic lid. There are kangaroos imprinted on the top of the bottle that appear to be jumping around it just below the lid.
The front of the bottle has a blue banner with a half circle at the top. In the half circle is a kangaroo and in the banner is the name "Aussie" both are the same colour as the bottle. It also tells me that is it the Luscious Long shampoo for hair long enough to swish. Although it did take me a while to work out what "enough" said as the letters are designed to look as if they have been swished and are therefore all on top of each other! Below this it tells me that the formula is a blue mountain blend to"turn long hair into a soft, luscious, swingy curtain of goodness". It also says that it will help your hair become silky smooth and that the bottle contains 300ml.
On the back of the bottle there is a lot of information which to be honest if it weren't for this review I probably wouldn't have read through as although the language is very colloquial there's a lot of information that doesn't tell me too much at all! There is however the ingredients and contact information. To summarise the rest it also tells me that it will bring softness and "lusciousness" to my hair and calm any flyaways. It also tells me that it contains two different kinds of Eucalyptus extract. I actually quite like the fact that it's written in a very colloquial manner but it does mean that it takes up a lot of room and therefore appears almost cramped in order to tell me very little useful information.
Using The Shampoo
The bottle has the type of lid that you press one side down to reveal a hole in the part that pops up. On opening the bottle I couldn't smell very much at all, this disappointed me as I like quite strongly scented products but may be of benefit to other people as they obviously haven't added any extra scents beyond those naturally in the products they use.
Squeezing the bottle to get the product out is easy, the plastic is firm enough to reassure me that I won't break it by squeezing too hard yet supple enough to give when I squeeze. The shampoo itself is a white colour and has a very thick, creamy consistency reminding me more of conditioner then shampoo, in fact I had to check that I'd picked up the right bottle. This was actually reassuring for me though, I've found many shampoos completely dry out my hair and the creaminess of this one gave me some hope that this wouldn't.
The shampoo went on to my hair really easily, lathered well and gave a nice even coverage. The smell still really isn't noticeable though, either when it was on my hand or when I was rubbing it into my hair. It does smell like eucalyptus but it really is very subtle and I had to try hard to smell it and identify any scent to tell that it smelled at all. Again, whilst this is a disappointment for me it does mean that there aren't any scents added to it which is an advantage if you have any allergies or just prefer your shampoo unscented. I also only had to use about a fifth of the amount I do with my usual shampoos. My hair is almost down to the small of my back and I found that two blobs about the size of a £2 piece was plenty to cover it well.
Rinsing out the shampoo was equally as easy, there was no residue left on my hair and I didn't really have to try too hard to get it out. After washing out I wasn't really convinced that it had cleaned it however this was because I had become used to associating the scent with clean hair, therefore the lack of scent in this product left me questioning how clean it actually was. I have since got used to this and it really does leave it feeling and looking cleaner and healthier. I mentioned earlier that some shampoos dry my hair out - this wasn't the case with this shampoo at all. In fact even before conditioning it felt softer and more manageable and therefore I do think the creamier consistency of this shampoo also helps to keep the hair hydrated.
I'm a convert! I don't think I'll be using another shampoo or conditioner with my hair again (bold statement I know!) but I've even gone as far as giving away all the other bottles to my mum as this has just been a miracle cure for my.
My hair is thick, long, completely wild and knots up at the slightest thing. It also has a tendency to dry out rather easily. I used to use a leave in conditioner to solve these problems but this shampoo has done it all for me. I just wish I'd found it sooner!
My hair is silky smooth and very manageable, the flyaways, although still there, are a lot less common and a lot less noticeable then they were before. It almost used to look as if I had this aura of frizz around my actual hair - that's gone. I would never have the confidence to wear my hair down for longer then about half an hour before because I knew it would just turn into a ball of frizz. Since using this shampoo (and conditioner, review coming soon) I have left my hair down for the whole day with very little frizz at the end of it. I've had comments on how much better my hair looks and even been asked if I had it washed and cared for in a salon. I even had straw like dry ends that I'd pretty much given up hope with and was about to book an appointment to get them cut off, however after only one use these showed a very noticeable improvement and have now been completely rehydrated so no need to get them cut.
After use my hair felt weightless, clean and refreshed. To use their words it really did give me "luscious long" hair.
This really has been a miracle product from me and although it is more expensive then other products I don't mind paying for quality and I use a lot less of this shampoo each time anyway so the bottle will last longer and therefore may even end up saving me money in the long run.
I won't list a big long list of ingredients as I don't find this very useful but I will say that this contains both Sodium Laureth Sulphate and Sodium Laureth-12 Sulphate so probably one to avoid if you're sensitive to that!
The shelf life of this bottle is 12 months but despite having said I use a lot less of it I'll be very surprised if it lasts that long!
It gets 4 out of five stars from me. It only loses a star due to the lack of scent and the excess of SLS. Otherwise a wonder product for me.

I was buying the aussie luscious long leave-in conditioner in boots and realised that it was 3 for 2 on the aussie range. The leave in conditioner had worked wonders on my dry, over-fried, over-dyed hair so I thought that seeing as they were on offer I may as well try out the shampoo and conditioner too. Usually the shampoo is £3.59 from Boots and £3.45 from Superdrug, which I think is a really good price for a decent shampoo. For this price you get a 300ml bottle. The conditioner is only 250ml, which I guess is because you always use more shampoo than conditioner.
The bottle is quite plain looking - white with a cream and purple label on the front. However, one thing I like about the Aussie range is the comical, informal writing style on the bottle. The instructions tell you to 'Gather up those tresses and drench with water. Massage shampoo deeply into scalp and roots. Take a deep breath and enjoy the delicious smell. Rinse out.' So no different to any other shampoo then. The shampoo had a thick consistency and lathered up really well so I didn't have to use too much. Therefore, even though I tend to use more than necessary, the bottle will last a few months. It also has a great smell, sweet and fruity, which you can still smell several hours after your shower.
This shampoo left my hair feeling silky and soft, and looking really shiny and smooth, even after just the first use. It is, however, important to note that I use the Aussie luscious long conditioner and leave in conditioner too, so it is possible that the shampoo is making no difference. However, the condition of my hair has definitely improved since I started using the shampoo and conditioner as well as the leave in conditioner. I would definitely recommend this shampoo to anyone and i'll definitely be buying it again!
I have been using Aussie Luscious Long Shampoo and conditioner for about two years. When I first began to use it I loved the idea of it containing natural plant extracts from Australia. I even loved reading the comical writing on the bottle especially their philosophy 'There's more to life than hair ... but it's a good place to start'. The smell of the shampoo is wonderful and my husband would often exclaim 'You smell of Kangaroos' as we cuddle in front of the T.V. (Which he meant as a compliment!)
I always found that it gave good soapy foam and left my hair feeling squeaky clean. I have long, thick light brown hair with blonde highlights. I wash my hair every morning and treat it once a week with the Aussie three minute miracle. Only a small amount of shampoo is needed and a bottle lasts between two to three months.
I had been really happy with it until I went to a new hairdressers on Friday. She told me that my hair was very dry and the shampoo I was using was not nourishing my hair enough. To be honest I have to agree with her. She recommended some more expensive shampoo which I duly bought. However I don't feel that it would be practical to spend that much money on long term hair care ... so I might be returning to Aussie in the future as an affordable alternative once my hair is repaired.
I generally love the Aussie products, I usually use the Volume shampoo and the Deep Conditioning Treatment, but in the last few weeks I have been dipping in and out of this stuff too. My hair is not long, but is mid length and has enough movement to swish and flop about a bit. This shampoo is designed for people with a bit of bounce to their hair and to tame the ends.
The smell of this shampoo is a highlight. It is whimsical in smell, fruity and sweet and you want to scoop up the blue mixture and spoon it down your throat. It makes rubbing it into the hair an absolute treat with that gorgeous aroma wafting over your senses.
The viscosity is good here with a nice thick liquid. This means the size of a ten pence piece will suffice for most heads and this is what I use. It lathers up quickly and massages in very easily. The only thing I did notice when I lathered it up, was that the hair instantly did not have as much volume in it even at the wet stage, as it did with the Aussie Volume shampoo.
A warm spray to wash this shampoo out, then a blow dry and onto the results. It has managed to tame my ends a little and makes blowdrying the awkward fringe more manageable. The hair feels smoother and silky and does not kink as much at the sides and the front since I have been using this. On the downside, after a few hours, it tends to feel a touch greasy and lacks oomph. This shampoo does not deliver as much bounce as the volume shampoo in the same range, but it does deal with straggly ends better and leaves a sensual lustre after you first wash the hair. I will continue to use this and for about three pounds for a bottle, it is a fairly priced and rewarding shampoo.
