MOP Glisten Shampoo
Advantages: Lovely citrus scent, soft and shiny hair.
Disadvantages: Too expensive
I have just used this product for the past couple of weeks, as I am staying at my Mam's and she swears by this particular brand. This review will cover my Mam's opinions that she has passed onto me and my own, hopefully this will give you a better understanding of the product on different hair types. I have been using it alongside the condition that I have also reviewed.
THE BRAND (3/5)
The company "MOP" is not exactly a household name and stands for "Modern Organic Products" as it is a high-end shampoo, it is considered an elite product with high prices and difficult to get your hands on. This shampoo belongs to the range of products called "Glisten" and I have used the shampoo and hair spray in the past and I am happy with both products.
I am rating the brand at 3/5, I quite like trying out off-beat beauty products, but being able to buy it on the High St in my local Boots would be convenient.
THE PACKAGING (4/5)
The bottle is quite simple, a semi-opaque bottle with black text on the bottle with orange text highlighting the fact it is a shampoo. The conditioner is set out the same way, the orange text tells you which is the shampoo and which is the conditioner. The one that my Mam has a pump / squirt lid, making it very easy to use in the shower as you do not need to bother with unscrewing the lid with wet hands. I think it is a nice touch that MOP produce pumps specifically for their range, so you are not decanting your shampoo into old garden fertilisers bottles etc.
I am rating the brand at 4/5 as it is simple, sophisticated and easy to use pump.
THE APPLICATION (5/5)
My hair is styled into a short bob, so I only need one pump load of the product to do my whole head. If you have longer hair then you may need more. I pump the product, and notice a lovely citrus scent. I rub the shampoo together in my hands then massage it into my hair paying particular attention to my roots as that is where my hair's natural oils gather. The shampoo lathers up really nicely without using too much of it and I leave the lather sitting in my hair for about five minutes and then rinse it out with warm water.
I am rating the application at 5/5 as the pump is easy to use and is used like any other shampoo.
THE EFFECT (5/5)
My hair does feel nice and soft (I used it along side the MOP Glisten Conditioner) and it has a lovely shine back. Lately I have been using the T-Gel shampoo and not until now did I realise that it was actually making my hair quite dull. The glisten shampoo has definitely made my hair glisten again.
My Mam has said that she really likes this product as she gets a lot of static in her hair and this prevents that problem. I have to admit, I had noticed myself getting a few fly away hairs and they seem to have gone completely after using this product.
The main thing that makes me love this product is the citrus scent and how easy it lathers up. Many high end hair products that I have found do not lather up very well, this makes me want to use more of the shampoo than necessary.
I am rating the effect as 5/5 because it makes my hair feel softer, more shiny, smells nice and lathers well.
THE PRICE (1/5)
I have the 1L size of the product, which retails at about £35. Personally, I find that it is ridiculously expensive considering I can get a bottle of Tresemme shampoo in 900ml (if I remember correctly) for 15% of the price. The only thing that this product offers over the Tresemme range is the lovely citrus smell and I am not willing to pay that much for a scent but may ask for the product for a special occasion.
To summarise, I am not likely to pay for the product myself but it does make my hair feel and look lovely.
Summary: A great product, if you have spare money to treat your locks.
