Clairol Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine 2 in1
Advantages: lovely smell, works well for adding shine
Disadvantages: not enough moisture for my hair, 2 in 1 label could be bigger
After reading a couple of reviews on here about the herbal essences dazzling shine shampoo and conditioner I decided to give it a try the next time that I saw it on offer as it seemed to have good reviews. So on a trip to Asda I went for a look down the toiletries isle and found the herbal essence range of shampoos and conditioners on offer. They had the dazzling shine one included in the offer so I picked up the shampoo and matching conditioner. Well that's what I thought I had picked up as they were next to each other on the shelf and one was clear and the other not so I presumed the clear was the shampoo and the other the conditioner. But the conditioner actually turned out to be the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner in one bottle. I didn't actually realise this until I started to lather what I though was conditioner into my hair and it started to foam like a shampoo. When I looked at the bottle I saw the small 2 in 1 logo on the front and thought it was no wonder I didn't see it as it is rather small and there is nothing else on the bottle to make it look any different from the conditioner.
I paid just £1.00 for a 200ml bottle for the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner and didn't feel it necessary to take it back to Asda to cause a fuss as it was partially my fault that I had not checked the bottle fully before purchasing. Also I do go swimming a couple of times per week and thought I could use the 2 in 1 for this as it would only mean taking one bottle with me.
The 2 in 1 comes in a green tinted clear plastic bottle with a bright lime green cap. The cap has a push button which reveals the opening that you can squeeze the 2 in 1 out of. On the back of the bottle you can find instructions for use, ingredients listings and a little info on how it works.
I did actually try the 2 in 1 this morning as I had not yet had chance to go and buy a bottle of the separate conditioner. My hair is generally very dry and prone to frizz, it can also look dull due to the dryness. I squeezed out an amount about the size of 2 50p's into my hand and applied it to my wet hair. The 2 in 1 lathered very well and had a lovely fresh fruity apple fragrance. The 2 in 1 rinsed out easily without too much effort, my hair did feel a little course when still wet so I did feel a little apprehensive of how this had worked on my hair.
But after blow drying my hair as normal I was very happy with the results, it did feel a little drier than usual but felt very soft and certainly looked more shiny than it normally does. I even received a couple of complements at work so it must work. The 2 in 1 contains silk extract which is meant to help clean the hair to reveal natural shine. Overall I was very impressed with this 2 in 1 and although I will be going back to purchase the separate conditioner as if I used this for every wash it would just not provide the full moisture that my hair needs it will do nicely for swimming or when I am in a hurry.
Summary: one of the best 2 in 1's I have tried
