As I feel like I have mentioned a million times now, I got a set of Bliss products for my birthday last year. Bliss was created by the same woman who set up Soap and Glory, which is a brand so I couldn't wait to try these. Not including this one, I have tried 4 products from the range, and on the whole if I'm honest I have been disappointed. I've found the products to be merely OK and nowhere near as good as I expected.
This shampoo is another product from the Lemon + Sage range, and I think the name 'Supershine Shampoo' says it all really! It states on the bottle that this contains wheat protein and 'anti-static actives' whatever they may be! It claims to be gentle enough for daily use, and they say it will help prevent static, frizz and flyaways, leaving hair looking healthy, soft and glossy. Strangely it doesn't say which hair types it is suitable for.
To be honest, given my negative experiences and my dislike of the Lemon +Sage scented products I didn't have high hopes for this, and really I just used it to get it out of the way.
I only have a travel sized bottle, but the full sized product comes in a blue bottle like the one pictured. It's a pretty simple design and as I have said on past Bliss reviews, I think the packaging looks cheap and to me this doesn't really look like a premium product.
The shampoo is a pale yellow in colour and quite a thick consistency. It has a lemon and sage fragrance and with previous Bliss lemon and sage products I have found I really disliked the smell. It's quite a green, grassy smell with a sharpness which comes from the lemon. In this shampoo I think the scent is a lot weaker than with the other products which makes it more tolerable. I have to say that so far when using this, I have not really noticed the scent as it is so toned down.
The shampoo lathers well and rinses away easily. It leaves no stickiness or obvious residue after use. I have fairly long hair but I don't need to use loads of shampoo to get a lather.
Given my expectations were so low, I have found myself hugely surprised by this product. Even after the first use there was a noticeable difference to my hair. Supershine is it's name and super shine is what I got! My hair looked noticeably glossier, and to the touch was amazingly soft. It did seem less frizzy and less static-y and of course just this in itself made my hair look shinier as the surface was smoother.
My hair was much more manageable after use - not to mention straightening seemed to take less time too, and I didn't need to use so much hairspray to control my halo of frizz!
My hair can be quite dry from the regular use of straighteners and other heated appliances, however it didn't feel dry at all after using this, and even the ends were moisturised making them look less ratty than usual!
This shampoo costs £13 for a 250ml bottle and is available from www.hqhair.com. This may not be the cheapest product, however given the amazing results and the fact you can see a difference after just one wash, I would be willing to spend that and just use it to wash my hair before special occasions.
So, finally I see what all the fuss is about when it comes to Bliss products! After a series of disappointments, I've finally found a Bliss product I like and this is thoroughly recommended!
I bought this for one reason and that was to use up the remaining amount on a Bliss gift card that I had. Normally I would never have bought it as it costs £13 for a 250ml bottle and shampoo is not something that I like to spend that amount of money on.
They say that this super shine shampoo leaves your locks glossier with wheat proteins and anti-static actives. It's supposed to leave hair looking healthy, soft, and glossy, help prevent static, frizz and flyaways, and it's gentle enough for daily use.
It comes in a bright blue bottle with a white flip lid which is easy to open in the shower and with wet hands. The shampoo has a very strong sweet lemon scent which hits you as soon as you open the bottle. With the other Lemon + Sage products i've used i was only able to smell the lemon, but with this one there's a definite herbal undertone to the scent. It's quite thick in texture for a shampoo and as a result it can sometimes take a while to get any out of the bottle.
Despite the fact that this shampoo creates a really rich lather, I still find I need to use quite a lot of it for it to be effective, so the bottle won't last as long as most shampoos which I can use much less of. The lather is very thick and luxurious and the smell is really strong, but it's a nice smell and not overpowering. It rinses out fairly easily and leaves my hair feeling clean but without that horrible squeaky clean feeling.
It leaves my hair very clean and fresh, and feeling really smooth and soft. I do think it helps to control static and flyaways, but it doesn't get rid of them completely. I was a little disappointed that I didn't notice any extra shine after using this, but my hair is really shiny anyway so maybe it's as shiny as it's ever going to get and it would work better for people who don't have shiny hair.
Overall I do think this is a great shampoo, but at £13 it's not one I'll be buying again.
