Clairol Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine 2 in1
Advantages: Lovely smell, does make hair shiny
Disadvantages: Doesn't condition hair at all
Knowing I was coming on holiday for a few days (yes I'm still in not so sunny Weston Supermare lol) I purchased some lovely shampoo and conditioner. However after being here since last year now I have of course had to repurchase shampoo and conditioner a few times!
Now for a while me and my friend who are in a caravan have been bathing at my mates everyday who is just up road however since we have been able to move from a couple of sites that had no running water as we had terrible weather and onto a site with a shower and a loo (pure luxury!) I decided I really wanted to be self sufficient and have showers of a morning instead of traipsing to my mates!
Now the shower here is 50p for 7 minutes and knowing this I decided to deliberately purchase a two in one hair product to clean my hair up with to save time. I'm spending enough money and I resent paying pounds to shower! I spotted this in a Wilkinson's store priced at a pound a bottle and actually simply liked the curvy bottle actually and the price so nabbed it!
200ml clear plastic and as I said slightly curved bottle with a green flip top lid concealing a small hole to the top of it. Through the bottle you can see the light green liquid product through it and then on the front of the bottle in white and silver writing I'm told it is Clairol Herbal Essences, Dazzling Shine 'Moisture Balance Shampoo Plus Conditioner', 2 in 1 'Berry, Tea & Orange Flower Extracts' and that this product is a one stop shop for normal hair. Other information on the back of the bottle includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, ingredients are listed as is the size and contact details for Procter & Gamble are given. It is a nice colour co-ordinated bottle and it stands out in appearance due to it's quality in my opinion and it is informative enough too!
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Bottle:
High shine in half the time.
'I'm a heady mix with berry, tea and orange flower extracts. Get both my shampoo power and my conditioning benefits squeezed into one bottle to maintain you hair's moisture balance in one go. Let me take you from normal hair to superstar hair in one gorgeous experience. Berry, berry clean. Berry, berry shiny and a deliciously intoxicating fragrance as well'.
Directions For Use:
Lather, rinse and enjoy. No other bottles necessary.
Me Using It:
Well all you do of course is wash you hair with it of course! I take a small blob of the creamy light green moisturising sort of lotion to my fingers and gently rub it through my damp/wet hair.
It lathers up with ease so really I don't need much and on my just below shoulder length hair I use just short of the size of a 10p piece really per wash.
It smells lovely as promised and it really does smell of berries and it has a wonderful natural sweetness to it and is perfect in my opinion for men, women and/or kids to use with this lovely aroma that it has.
Once lathered I always rinse it well and then repeat before giving my hair then a real thorough rinse and drying it off well. It rinses out with ease and doesn't take long to lose the soapy feeling at all.
However with this I really do feel it cleans my hair but doesn't actually condition it whatsoever. I find it hard to get a brush or comb through and even though I know that I have rinsed my hair out really well I feel that my hair is a little clammy and weighed down some what but saying that once I have blow dried my hair etc it does to be fair to it lose that feeling.
Although I can style my hair, rid myself of the knotty feeling I had when combing/brushing it my hair just doesn't feel conditioned enough for my personal liking. You can of course combat that by using a little leave in conditioner on your hair if you wish to, but me I don't. It simply isn't good enough for me.
Yes my hair feels clean after using this and I know my hair after using this is mega shiny and in a really natural way though I feel that the overall condition of my hair is impaired over time by not conditioning it. Ok for using occasionally and great for emergencies and the smell of this really does get my complimented but I won't buy it again for the struggle it gives me to comb my hair after using it!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc priced usually at a couple of quid a bottle.
Summary: Ok for emergencies
