Advantages: Smells lovely and different, leaves hair squeaky clean, great price
Disadvantages: None - although some might dislike the smell
I recently went away for a couple of nights to Edinburgh and as I wasn't going to be away for long, I wanted to take products which I could find in handy, travel sized bottles. For a while, the only brands you could get in small bottles were Head and Shoulders or a plain, boring Pantene one but now there seems to be loads of choice.
Some of the more "upmarket" brands were priced ridiculously so I opted for the Aussie Moist Shampoo and Conditioner which were on offer - 2 for £2. If you've ever used Aussie products before then you'll be familiar with the branding and the look of the bottles. The bottles are a creamy/off white colour and the logo/font is a deep purple. The Kangaroo logo is great and really makes you associate the product with the brand.
The travel bottle has a flip top and you squeeze the bottle to get the product to squirt out - I much prefer this to screw top bottles which you have to shake upside down for ages to get any shampoo out! The first thing you notice when you use this, or any other Aussie product is the smell. It's quite strong and very unique to this brand. It's hard to describe but it always reminds me of bubblegum. Personally I like it and it's a good job because I find that the scent does linger in your hair when you wash it out!
This shampoo is very thick in consistency and you really don't need to use a great deal to get your hair squeaky clean - I use a dollop about the size of a 2p piece and that does my long thick hair easily. Some people like to wash their hair with shampoo twice but I don't find that neccessary with this product, it does the job the first time with no problems. This is probably due to the fact that it lathers up really well, covering every inch of your hair.
After using this shampoo and the matching conditioner for a couple of days, I can honestly say that my hair was in the nicest condition it has been in for years. It felt soft, moisturised and healthy and had a real shine about it. I don't need to wash my hair every day with this shampoo, it stays looking clean for a couple of days minimum.
Overall I am really impressed with this product, not only because it performs and does the job so well but also because it was a bit of a bargain. I have tried many much more expensive shampoos from hair salons but this seemed to outperform them all!
Summary: Love this shampoo, does a great job and is brilliant value, especially when on offer.
