Mop stands for Modern Organic Products. they try to use as many Organic ingredients as possible in all of their products and mark these with an asterix on the ingredients list on each bottle.
I first discovered mop products on Qvc a few years ago when I was looking for a new shampoo and conditioner. I decided to try the Glisten range first as I liked the idea of making my hair look more shiny and healthy. Also the glisten range is suppossed to be very good for colour treated hair and at the time I had highlights and was very concerned about my hair becoming dryer.
I brought a little discovery style kit which had the shampoo, conditioner and some other products from the Glisten range in around a half of the usual retail size. I jumped at this because it would be enough to see if it made a difference but I wouldn't be left with loads of product if I didn't like it.
After using the first time it made my hair very sleek and shiny and it looked great straightened as it had a real sheen and went very straight with little effort (I have slightly wavy hair).
I continued to use it untill I had used all of the product and my hair did seem to be in a very good condition, better then when I had first used the products.
I did like he results but didn't re-purchase the shampoo because the problem I dod have with it was that it made my hair quite lank and sometimes it would just hang. I don't blame this on the product, I blame it completely on my hair type as this has happened with other products. I have quite fine hair that's greasy quickly and really needs to be washed at best everyother day, usually everyday though. This product didn't help with this problem and seemed to make my hair greasier, quicker and I ended up having to wash my hair everday. I will say that this does seem to happen with similar products though.
Overall I think this is a nice product if you've got thicker hair, definately not one for those with thin or lank hair. The product smells nice and is pleasant to use, lasting well and going a long way.
The price is very good value and you can even buy it in larger 'bulk' sizes. I like that packaging is plain and quite simple, it means they are spending the money on the product, not the packaging.
Summary: Great for thicker hair.
