Aussie Moist Shampoo
Advantages: Adds moisture without making hair greasy, makes hair look shiny and healthy
Disadvantages: Quite expenisve
My hair is not one of my best features. It's rather lank and thin with dry split ends and greasy roots. I'm painting a lovely picture. Lately, I've had it lightened and this has helped a bit with the greasy roots, as my hairdresser said it might do. However, the ends are still terribly dry and look like they badly need some moisture. My friend suggested I try Aussie Moist Shampoo. I was a bit worried about using this shampoo at first as I thought that if it was going to add moisture to my hair it might also make my roots go even greasier than it was before. Actually the exact opposite is true and I'm pleased to report than this particular shampoo seems to suit my hair type perfectly. I'm really pleased I decided to splash out and buy some. It wasn't cheap at nearly £4 for the 300ml sized bottle but it lathers really well and as I only have to use a small amount, a whole bottle lasts me for ages, particularly as it's not a shampoo I use every day - I use this about three times per week.
The bottle is made of fairly heavy duty plastic but it is flexible enough for me to be able to squeeze some out while I am in the shower. I like the lid as you have to press the top slightly to make one end come up and then tip it over and the contents come out fairly fluidly. The shampoo has a great fresh clean smell and it's medium to thick in consistency and it lathers like a dream. The bottle sates to wash the hair twice with this shampoo and to also use the Aussie conditioner for best results. I actually use a different conditioner and only ever wash my hair once, yet it still gives me really great results.
It rinses out of my hair well and afterwards, when I come to dry and style my hair I can really see a huge difference in its volume and the shine it has. My hair feels and smells gorgeous for ages after I've used this shampoo and I also use it on my daughter as she tells me she loves the smell of bubblegum it has. It does add moisture to the ends of my hair and makes it look in much better condition. Surprisingly for me, I haven't noticed that my roots look any more greasy than they normally do, so in this respect I had nothing to worry about.
It's just a great shampoo, which definitely improves both the look and health of my hair and adds shine and volume and moisture without it making my hair look or feel heavy or dragged down. I certainly recommend it if you need a bit of a moisture boost.
Summary: I use this a few times a week to maintain condition and shine
