Being on repeat prescription for some medications, I frequently find myself stuck in the chemist, browsing the shelves whilst I wait for my prescription to be filled. On my last visit, I decided to pick up some Linco Beer Shampoo - I swear, I've always noticed it in every chemist I visit, so I finally decided the time was right to give it a bash .
Mine came in two small sachets, joined together along a perforated line, and I believe I paid about 60p. This is a two in one product, and each sachet is designed to wash mid length hair - if, like me, you have shorter hair you may only need half a sachet . If your hair is longer, you may need to use both sachets .
The shampoo contains Hops, a common ingredient in the beer brewing process . Pouring it from the sachet into my palm, I was relieved that it certainly didn't smell of beer - I didn't fancy going around giving off alcoholic fumes. I'm hard put to say what it did smell like though - it was almost disinfectant like in smell, but not quite as strong. The creamy pinkish shampoo lathers up nicely on wet hair, and I left mine on for a few minutes to give it a chance to work .
After rinsing out, my hair was left in good condition - I certainly didn't look as though I'd skipped the conditioner. My hair was shiny, silky, and easy to brush through, although that odd smell from the shampoo lingered for a while .
I do think this is a good shampoo - and certainly the little sachets it comes in at chemists would be ideal for travel, for example . But I can't say I like the smell too much, so I'm knocking off a couple of stars for that .
Still, It does the job, and isn't too expensive - so three stars .
Linco Beer Shampoo and Conditioner is a wonderfully creamy hair product, designed to strengthen and revitalise hair. It comes in bottles, but more often than not you will find it in handy twin pack sachets from your local chemist.
I've used this product several times and have always found it to be incredibly rich and thick, leaving my hair in great condition afterwards. It is a 2 in 1, so this might not suit everyone, as some people prefer separates, myself included. In the case of Linco Beer, you can normally get two washes per sachet, depending on hair length and condition.
Unlike most 2 in 1s I didn't find the need to add extra conditioner. In fact I thought the opposite, that it was perhaps a little too conditioner based, lacking a little in the shampoo element. Initially, after a few washes my hair felt a little over conditioned, a little flat and greasy. This is perhaps why you get it in such small packets, with the idea being that you use it as you would an intensive conditioner, sparingly and once in a while. Once I started using the product like this, I saw vast improvements and I treat myself and my hair to this treatment every once in a while.
