      A Bargain Herbal Essences Shampoo

      Why Herbal Essences ever changed their brand image so drastically is totally beyond me. Most people who have an opinion on it prefer the older range and I definately fit into that catagory. I have been using this shampoo a really long time so when the image overhaul came about and my favourite product "blossomed" into something else it was never quite the same so I had to go on the lookout for this "Deep Nourishment & Shine Shampoo - Herbal Essences" as basically my hair really missed it LOL. Luckily even though this shampoo is old news now it can be picked up from places like Poundland so you really can get a bargain if your willing to overlook the old bottle design!

      Useful Information:
      Price: 99p/£1
      Stockists: Poundland & 99p Store
      For: Providing Deep Nourishment To Dried Out Hair While Making Sure Your Lock Shimmer & Shine. Oh And Its Meant To Smell Pretty Amazing As Well.

      The shampoo itself basically looks like a runny, blue gel. Its odd as it kind of has the same consistency as jelly it looks super thick but is actually really runny. Anyway because of that watch how much your pouring out the bottle as it does get absolutely everywhere and you dont need too much of it anyway to wash your whole hair. Id say you only need like a 5p piece worth each time you use this - I do and I have very long hair -so I reckon one bottle will last quite a while if your the only one using it.

      The smell of this shampoo honestly is gorgeous and probably one of the best I have ever smelt. When you hear coconut milk and hawaiian hibiscus extracts I assumed it would smell really tropical and kind of like a bottle of Malibu but its nothing like that at all. The scent of this reminds me of those refresher sweets that I used to eat when I was young and the fragrance of this certainly helps awaken your scences. I always use this shampoo before a night out up town as the smell lasts all night and longer on my hair and my hair always looks really healthy and shiny when I used this shampoo.

      Whenever I use this (as I havent been able to find any for ages so Ive taken a break) my hair definately looks and feels much better and it helps give the illusion that Ive got really healthy naturally great hair. The smell of this stuff just makes using it even better and I have actually got compliments on how nice it smells when Ive been out after using it. I strongly recommend people give this shampoo a go although I do recommend using the matching conditioner - shampoo on my hair alone just doesnt cut it. Try a bottle - you wont be disappointed!

      Thanks For Reading

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A fantatic shampoo and conditioner

        My local Savers had decided to discontinue my usual brand of shampoo, which left me needing to find a new one. After some browsing, the vivid bright blue bottles stood out, and I picked up the Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment and Shine. It is infused with coconut and Hawaiian hibiscus, and is for dry and damaged hair. Having dry, frizzy and straw like hair, I decided to give it a go.

        I used the same night, and was looking forward to getting the 'orgasmic' feeling from washing my hair that is shown on the television adverts!

        After soaking my hair, I squeezed some of the shampoo into my hand, about enough to fill my palm. The smell hit me straight away, a gorgeous fruity smell, with an almost 'after scent' of coconut. The scents gel together very well, neither is more over powering than the other. I have long, thick hair, and usually need two palm fulls of shampoo to cover my hair, but this lathered up really well and I managed to cover my whole hair and work up a great lather to get a good clean. When it came to rinsing, I was shocked at just how many suds I washed away, and it did take me a good few minutes to wash them all out.

        Already, my hair felt softer, but I still had to use the conditioner. I always use more conditioner for my hair, usually around half a small bottle per wash. The Herbal Essences conditioner isn't very thick, but its not too runny, and I managed to get away with using 1 handful to cover my hair. I worked it in and rubbed it well into my problem area, which is my dry ends. I left it for a minute or so before rinsing.

        As soon as I had finished rinsing I could feel the difference. My hair was really soft and was easy to comb through. Once it was dry, it was still soft, the smell still clung and made my hair smell lovely and fruity. And, something I rarely ever had before - shiny hair!

        I have now been using this brand for around 6 months, and I have no intentions to change as I love it. At the moment, I am still using the old design Fruit Fusions that I can still get from Savers. I know the designs have changed, I just hope they haven't changed the formula with it.

        At £1.29 for a 200ml bottle, this is a great bargain shampoo and conditioner.

        Although, I am disappointed that I dont get that same 'orgasmic' experience the women in the adverts do!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Amazing value for money, I love it so much!

        This is probably the best shampoo I have ever used that has cost me so little! I bought the shampoo and the conditioner for 99p each from Tesco, as the new packaging was coming in. It smells delicious, very coconuty, but at the same time you can really smell the hibiscus- I must admit that this was the main reason I purchased the product- but, hey, who doesn't want luscious smelling locks?! The beautiful and very appealing blue colour did help a bit too.

        I tried it out the night I bought it and I used the conditioner after the shampoo. It left my hair feeling really clean and smelling great but there was no great shine at first. However, I have found that using this product every time I wash my hair has increased the effects of this product and now my hair comes out silky and shinier than ever.

        The moral of this story is don't be too quick to judge folks, it's a brilliant budget shampoo, the coconut and orchid replacement looks to be just as good.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Well recommended for hair that needs a boost..

        For a long time I have stuck to the same shampoo because of the usual reasons, price, smell, what it did to my hair and I felt need of a change because my hair was becoming a little dull regardless of any conditioner I used so I decided to switch..

        I tried lots of shampoos and they fell short of my expectations a lot of the time..

        However this one has exceeded everything I expected because it is just so fabulous!

        ~~ Why did I chose this shampoo? ~

        Urm to be honest I picked this shampoo because I knew I needed something to help try and reduce the damage I had already done to my hair.. I also fancied something fruity that might outweigh the smell of burnt hair that usually occurs from blow drying and straightening.. Which I'm sure most of you ladies and some men are more than aware of!!

        Plus to be honest I had a few hours until my boyfriend was due to come over and obviously I felt a need to be well looking clean and presentable.. Even though it was a Sunday!!

        ~~ What is this shampoo meant to do ~~

        Well it is the Deep Nourishment and Shine shampoo, which to me means that, damage that has been done to your hair is nourished to give it a healthier glow and shimmer.. The bottle actually says something similar in the shape of reviving the shine of your hair.. Which is a good thing after months of torture..!

        ~~ The smell and texture ~~

        Well let me open the bottle and see.. The first smell that hits you is the deep fruity scent which is undoubtedly going to be very obvious after washing your hair.. The coconut present is hardly noticeable as to be honest I am not a big coconut fan.. It just tastes and smells odd..
        The texture of the shampoo is thick but not too thick that it doesn't lather.. This shampoo once rubbed into your head lathers really well and fills the shower with a gorgeous smell and as you wash it out even without the conditioner you can tell the shampoo has made your hair more nourished, smooth and even textured..

        ~~ Price ~~

        At the moment a 400ml bottle of the shampoo is £2 in asda which is a bit of a bargain..
        In Tesco the 250ml bottle is £2.19 or over £3 for the 400ml bottle..
        However Superdrug is your best bet for the moment as they are doing buy on get on free on these products so you can get the shampoo and conditioner for £2.69..

        ~~ My opinion ~~

        From someone who religiously used my L'oreal shampoo I am a convert, the smell just makes the product worth buying alone.. Regardless of the fact that it does your hair a wonder of good.. From the first wash my hair was smoother, less static and looked healthier.. I was really impressed with the result.. I am going to keep using this product because on my hair it seems to make my hair stay straight longer which is a blessing as I can't be bothered to keep straightening it every time it becomes a bit wavy again..

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          An average shampoo.

          When it comes to my hair, I honestly couldn't care less what brand I use. I don't colour my hair and besides straightening it when I'm not feeling lazy (read hardly ever), it doesn't get hassled at all, I don't even use a hairdryer on it. So I am not by any means loyal to a brand and as long as it doesn't smell downright bad, price is a major factor for me.

          When I found Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment and Shine in Poundland and liked the smell, I thought I'd give it a whirl. I've used Herbal Essences in the past and liked them, but their 250ml bottles seem really tiny and get used up fast, so I was happy to get it for £1 and not full price, at around the £2 mark. I have however seen these shampoos on "buy one get one half price" promotion at Boots recently.

          The bottle has a good flip-top cap which stays firmly shut and is in fact sometimes hard to open with wet hands, especially if the top has got a little slick with product. I would say it's a good size and design for travel.

          The shampoo is bright blue and along with the pictures on the bottle reminds me somewhat of a tropical lagoon! The shampoo scented with hibiscus and coconut, but I can't detect any coconut at all. It is very fresh and clean-smelling. I can't say I've ever sniffed a hibiscus flower but it does smell slightly floral, not overpoweringly so. I would imagine men would not be opposed to using this. To be honest, I find that HE's shampoos all smell a bit the same to me, so it was a familiar scent.

          I have medium-length hair and find I do need quite a lot to get a good lather, although once it starts to foam up I have a head full of bubbles! The shampoo is quite thick, which I like as I don't end up spilling it all over the bath or shower floor if it slips through my fingers. It's reasonably easy to rinse out and leaves my hair tangle-free and smelling lovely. Even after a month or so of use I haven't become accustomed to the scent as you do sometimes with fabric conditioners, I notice the smell on my hair right up until the next wash.

          Now, the shampoo is for dry or damaged hair, which I don't have. That kind of thing bothers me about as much as brand, being as I have well-behaved locks. In fact, if anything my hair leans more towards being greasy at times, although in the winter my skin is thirstier than ever, and my only hair complaint is a bit of a dry scalp, if anything. I have the odd split end, which perhaps have been a little less noticeable since using this.

          Did it do wonders for my dry scalp? Not really. From battling with with my dry skin on my face, I know that however wonderful a product claims to be, my skin will put up a good fight. Saying that, I don't have dandruff as such so at least the problem hasn't worsened. No snow on these shoulders thankyouverymuch!

          My hair hasn't been at all greasy since using this. It does feel soft and look shiny, staying clean for a good while, but I often find that when using a new shampoo it will seem like a wonder product..for a while, so I'm not sure if it's just the honeymoon period.

          I didn't ooh and ahh my way through my shower like on the adverts, and I wouldn't rush out to buy this again, but as a standby it's all right. It's not really lasting that well, I've been using the odd other product between washes with this and have about a quarter of the bottle left, after I'd say about eight washes. I don't think I particularly masses, but enough to produce a good lather.

          It's a middle of the road shampoo at a middle of the road price. I don't find it any different from any other HE product I've used, down to the smell. For me I'd much prefer a cheaper alternative like Alberto Balsam.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A very pleasant smelling shampoo,nourishing and conditioning.

            Until two weeks ago my hair was a shoulder length bob,then an impulse transformed it into a very short elfin style !
            Its very different and I love it,but it means that my hair really needs to look well nourished and conditioned to get the best from the style.
            I have bought shampoo from the Herbal Essences range many times before,but had never tried this shampoo.
            I had never realised that 10 % of the natural weight of our hair is water !
            So obviously the amount of water we drink is not only crucial for our skin,but adds shine to our hair too.

            The shampoo has a blend of Ocean botanics (Hawaiian Hibiscus and Coconut Extract )and has been formulated to help dry and damaged hair.
            When you take the cap off of the bottle the thick ocean blue liquid smells richly of coconut .
            I only needed to use a little to work up a really good rich lather.
            Using this deep nourishment formula hydrates the hair and adds sheen.
            I only washed my hair once,as its short now it just didn't need another wash.
            The coconut aroma was really strong!..but pleasant ,the Hibiscus smell remained in the background.
            The lather rinsed off quickly and easily,and I towel dried my hair before leaving it to dry naturally.
            The result was as promised,my hair had a high shine,it looked healthy and felt soft.
            Overall a very pleasing result.
            The shampoo would be economical to use as a family shampoo,and a bottle will go a long way.
            Available from all leading chemists and supermarkets it costs around £2.98 for a 400 ml bottle.

              Disadvantages

              Shampoo from Herbal Essences which leaves hair clean and soft

              Recently I bought some Clairol Herbal Essences shampoos which were on a buy one get one free at Superdrug. This shampoo was one of them from the Fruit Fusions range and is Deep Nourishment and Shine Shampoo for dry and damaged hair. It contains Coconut and Hawaiian hibiscus extracts.

              The shampoo sells for around £2.98 for a 400ml bottle but its worth looking out for the special offers and stock up then rather than paying the full price. You can buy it in Boots, Superdrug all the major supermarkets and many chemists too it's quite widely available.

              This shampoo is designed for dry and damaged hair and is designed to revive the shine in your hair and replenish it.

              The shampoo bottle is clear with a flip top cap and holds 400ml. The shampoo itself is a bright blue colour. This puzzled me a little at first as I expected a coconut shampoo to be naturally white. I don't think I have ever used a bright blue shampoo so it seemed a little strange at first. The smell of the shampoo is really nice but it doesn't really smell of coconut. I am assuming what you smell is the hibiscus but I don't really know. It smells fresh and a mixture of a fruity and floral smell it's really nice but it's certainly not a coconut smell.

              Clairol claim that the shampoo will "moisturise your hair from root to tip to revive its shine."

              Directions - Wet your hair and massage the shampoo in. Clairol then advise you to "enjoy the renewing fragrance." I have only ever needed to shampoo once as my hair feels quite clean after this. For best results Clairol advise you to use the conditioner from the same range.

              I liked this shampoo although it wasn't really what I was expecting. I would have like there to be a much more coconut smell to it. However the scent itself was nice and pleasant. The shampoo did make my hair feel softer, as soon as you started massaging it in you felt it working on your hair which was really nice. My hair isn't really dry but I do use hair straighteners most days so I like to make sure I am keeping my hair in good condition so it doesn't dry out. Using this shampoo my hair felt soft and shiny afterwards.

              It is a nice shampoo from Herbal Essences but if you are looking for a really fruity fusion then I think you might be a bit disappointed as this is definitely more flower than fruit. The other shampoo I tried was the Tangerine one and it was really fruity smelling so I expected this to be the same. It is a pleasant shampoo but I think I might try another one in the range to see if there are any better ones.

              Disadvantages

              f you don't want to be spending a fortune on hair products, go for this

              I have used this shampoo and conditioner for around a year now and will continue to buy the product. I love the fruity smells in the range and it really does give an excellent salon-look shine.

              I have a family friend who is my personal hair dresser, they recommend this product over the more expensive brands,

              The product is slightly more expensive that it's alternatives, however, if you shop around between Asda and Tesco, you usually find them on some sort of special offer.

              The shampoo lathers very well, and it's pointless using the shampoo without the conditioner, I find if I forget to use the conditioner, my hair is a little frizzy.

              When combined with the conditioner, the hair calms down a little and has a very nice shiney appearance to it

              Overall, if you don't want to be spending a fortune on 'bespoke' hair products, go for the herbal essences range.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              excellent shampoo, smells great, leaves hair beautiful

              Herbal essences shampoos and conditioners are one of my favourites and I use them on a daily basis. I tried this particular one out when I went on holiday and it is very nice. I love the coconut scent, it was very appropriate for my holiday destination. The shampoo lathers up nicely and makes your hair feel clean and fresh. The tropical scent is very soothing and relaxing and used together with the conditioner, gives a great result.

              I would recommend this shampoo and will definitely buy again, as they come at a very reasonable price and can mostly be found on offer at Boots, Superdrug, or any supermarket. This is an excellent addition to the Herbal Essences range and there is something to suit any hair type! You can also get the bottles in travel and large sizes and there are even 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioners available.

              Disadvantages

              Read me...

              I think this shampoo and conditioner is amasing.

              The smell
              The way it makes you hair nice and shiny
              The way it makes it silky smooth

              I live in Holland and over here H.E is priced at aprox 2.99 euros.

              They always have special offers on for example 2 for 1.

              When this happens i always stock up!

              Currently they have three catogories

              Herbs and Botanics
              Fruit Fusion
              Rain Forest Flowers

              They all hqave different uses, more shine, deep condition, organic glow, silk and shine, coloured hair, uplifting, citrus lift etc etc...

              They stock H.E all over, here are a list of places you can buy them...

              Boots
              Asda
              Tesco
              Sainsburrys
              Waitrose
              Superdrug

              If you copy and paste the link below you can check out the website, this tells you a lot about the brand.

              It also has some fun things, determin which H.E is best for your type of hair and games.

                Disadvantages

                Herbal Essences

                Herbal Essences is not a brand I buy very often, but when I saw it on special offer in Boots not so long back, I decided to get a bottle each of the shampoo and conditioner. There are several different fragrances in the range, each for different hair types, and I eventually decided on the Deep Nourishment and Shine shampoo.

                ~About the Shampoo~

                The shampoo is coconut and Hawaiian hibiscus fragrance, which was a big pull for me, as I love the smell of coconut. It is especially for dry and damaged hair, which also fits my hair type, as lots of over-styling has left my hair dried out and brittle, therefore prone to damage.

                ~Packaging~

                I love the bottle this comes in. It is clear, and you can see the gorgeous blue colour of the shampoo through it. The actual label on the front has the Herbal Essences logo with a coconut in the centre of it, and a twist of what looks like lemon peel. It has a very tropical feel to it, and reminds me of summer and being on holiday. It has a dark green flip top lid, as do most of the Herbal Essences bottles, and it's quite sturdy.

                ~Using it~

                On dispensing the shampoo, you can immediately smell the scent of coconut. I don't know what Hawaiian Hibiscus smells like, but I would imagine that is the slight fruity and floral twist that I can also detect in the shampoo's scent.

                Only a fairly small amount of the shampoo is needed to make a good lather - I have been using the 400ml bottle I bought for about three weeks now, and it still has over half left, which is fairly good considering I have fairly long hair, and wash it regularly - I would normally expect to have used a lot more than this by now.

                ~Results~

                I used this alongside the matching conditioner, and found that it left my hair feeling soft and a bit more moisturised -definitely not as dried out as it was before. When I let my hair dry naturally, I also noticed that there was a lot less frizz than I normally get.

                Appearance wise, unfortunately I did not notice a huge difference to my hair. It wasn't dull, but I didn't particularly notice any added shine either.

                The lovely, fresh coconut smell stayed on my hair for quite a while after use - although I tend to use a lot of styling products on it, which unfortunately overpower the fragrance.

                ~Price~

                This costs £2.98 for a 400ml bottle, or £1.80 for 200ml from Boots, but you may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

                ~Conclusion~

                I loved the smell of this, and it got my hair clean, and left it feeling soft. It didn't seem to make my hair look any better though, and I don't particularly feel that this was anything special, but I would buy it again if it was on special offer.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Missing out on the pleasure of use.

                  I have used Herbal Essence for year but in the last 6 month I have had to stop using it and many other shampoos as they have started giving me a flakey/ spotty/ itchy scalp which I have to say is not much fun esepcially as my hair is my biggest vanity!.

                  I believe it's the Coco Bet....... stuff that is doing it as in general it's the 3rd or 4th ingredient in every shampoo i have tried recently. Having gone round them all in my local supermarket all the shampoos have this ingrerdient now.

                  Herbal essence did use to make my hair lovely and shiny and smell gorgeous but now that it has started giving me such a bad reaction i have had to stop using it and there is nothing else on the market that smells that good.

                  Has there been a change in key ingredients recently i.e. in the last 6 months?

                  Herbal Essences is made by Clairol and subsequently owned by Procter & Gamble UK. Herbal Essences are a well known and reputable hair care brand that have a large range of shampoos, conditioners and hair colours. They are well known for their adverts, of a girl over enjoying herself due to the wonderful aroma of the Herbal Essences shampoo. Herbal Essences is constantly winning awards, it recently won the 2007 Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards, which it has every year since 2004.

                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                  Deep Nourishment and Shine is for dry and damaged hair. It is one of the new Fruit and Fusions range from Herbal Essences, although it has been around for at least a year. Others in that category are Citrus Lift for Fine Hair, Brilliant Shine for Normal Hair and Vivacious Colour for Coloured Hair. Deep Nourishment and Shine contains coconut and hawaiian hibiscus extracts. Deep Nourishment and Shine Shampoo is designed to moisturise your hair and restore its shine, leaving you and your hair feeling replenished, revived and reinvigorated.

                  What Herbal Essences say - 'Revive the shine of your hair with Deep Nourishment and Shine. Immerse yourself in fragrant shampoos and conditioners which will leave your hair replenished'.

                  Use & Effects
                  ~~~~~~~~~~~

                  The bottle is blue with a holagram in the back, the shampoo itself is a thick blue gel. The bottle reminds me of one of those 'statues' that has a boat on water in and you have to tip it and the water moves. The holagram isn't a boat, but it reminds me of this. I'm sure no one will even no what I'm talking about anyway! The bottle has a flip cap, which is easy to open and shut and I haven't experienced any problems with it. That said though, the conditioner bottle cap is exactly the same, and one day that just broke off.

                  To use, you should wet your hair, then dispense a generous amount into your hands, rub together slightly then massage into your hair, rinse off and then repeat. Then apply a conditioner, I would recommend when using this shampoo that you use Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment and Shine Shampoo. I only use this conditioner when I use this shampoo, as they really do work together and better than using other products with them. When you massage it into your hair, it really lathers up a lot, but you do need to use quite a bit. I have fairly long hair so would use more than someone with shorter hair but I still think to give a thorough cleanse you need a fair amout. It easily rinses out of your hair and doesn't leave you with a residue.

                  One thing you immediately notice with this shampoo, as with all Herbal Essences shampoos, the smell is delicious. This one is supposed to have the fragrance of coconut, but I really don't smell that, to me this smells lovely and fruity. This really does make you feel how the adverts describe it! After washing and drying your hair, and even using products on, you can still clearly smell the gorgeous aroma of this shampoo and you can continue to smell it even the next day, just as fresh as it was immediately after washing it. It makes your hair feel really clean, knowing that it smells so lush.

                  The natural ingredients this shampoo contains are Hibiscus Rose Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit and Cocos Nucifera Extract. These are what gives it it's wonderful natural aroma. Hibiscus Rose Extract is a natural moisturising ingredient for replenishing nutrients. Vanilla Planifolia Fruit has high vanilla content, it is used a lot for vanilla flavouring, I think if anything this is probably what you can smell the most in the shampoo, and I love the smell of Vanilla. It is mainly used as a fragrance is this shampoo but is an essential oil so is nourishing. Cocos Nucifera Extract is Coconut Extract which is nutrient rich and conditions the hair and skin and is also for its natural scent.

                  This shampoo is recommended for damaged and dry hair, but I wouldn't recommend it for dry scalps, although it doesn't make it any worse, it doesn't help either and if you have a dry scalp there are better shampoos you can use that do actually help a dry scalp. I have ecezma in my hair line, this doesn't irritate it at all, it doesn't soothe it but doesn't make it any worse.

                  When you rinse this out of your hair, you immediately feel a difference. To me, my hair seemed more dry than it was before. I then made the mistake of applying too much conditioner to counteract this, but there was no need. That feeling was just my hair being really clean, it wasn't dry at all. I then just left it one time, shampooed it twice and rinsed it out, then applied a normal amount of conditioner and it was so soft, clean and nourished, not at all dry. So don't make the same mistake I did by trying to apply more conditioner as you really don't need to.

                  Once you have dryed your hair, if is full of life. It's bouncy, clean and looks healthy. You are able to style it and the style stays. It doesn't look dull and lifeless. I find when I use this shampoo, as it removes a lot of the product build up, it drys quicker than usual, not much but enough to notice a difference. If you use this shampoo all the time, this will not happen, your hair will appear dull and lifeless from product build up, so I would only recommend to use this as an inbetween shampoo. I like to use this inbetween my usual shampoo, Bedhead Dumb Blonde. I use it as a cleansing shampoo inbetween this to give it a good clean and prevent product build up and this really works. I do also use some others too, but this is one of my favourites. It doesn't feel overloaded or greasy at all, it feels lovely and light. I do, however notice that once I have removed the towel from my head and go to brush through my hair it is slightly knottier than usual and I find it a bit difficult to comb through. I always use a styling spray so this helps the knottiness and eases my brush through. When I curl my hair or straighten it afterwards, the style sticks but it doesn't flatten your hair. I usually wash my hair every day, it does tend to get quite greasy quickly and I'm very fussy so don't like to leave it longer than a day. Although this shampoo doesn't make your hair feel greasy, if you do suffer from greasy hair, you may want to wash it every day. The shampoo doesn't make the greasyness any worse, but it doesn't make it any better, but it's not designed to do this. It smoothes your split ends. Your hair appears smoother and healthier and split ends appear less obvious and you are not left with fly away straggly ends. It doesn't make your hair any shinier than it is but does give you deep nourishment and a deep clean. The shampoo enhances my blonde colour, it doesn't fade it or make it look orange. It makes the best of my colour and I feel it would do this for all colours.

                  I find a 400ml bottle of this will last me about a year, with weekly to two weekly use, so for the money, that's certainly not bad. You do need to use quite a generous amount but it does last.

                  I purchased mine from Sainsbury's in a 2 for 1 offer when I was looking to purchase a cheaper shampoo than my usual one, which is about £8-10. I brought this and the conditioner for £2.50. This can be purchased from Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, Asda and Boots.

                  Conclusion
                  ~~~~~~~~~

                  This is a good shampoo to use as a cleansing shampoo inbetween your usual one, but I wouldn't recommend it for use all the time. It smells gorgeous and leaves your hair feeling soft and full of life. It is great for dry hair, but not greasy or a dry scalp, it does deeply nourish your hair but doesn't give it any extra shine. For the price, it's not a bad shampoo, but as I said, only for an inbetweener.
