MOP Glisten Shampoo
Advantages: Natural ingredients and gives your hair body and a beautiful shine
Disadvantages: It could be a bit cheaper
Mop is a company which strives to provide us with salon quality hair products that are made using natural ingredients. They have created products to suit all hair types and solve all beauty dilemmas involving our locks. The brand promotes healthiness and wellbeing and do all that they can to protect the environment. Many of their products contain organic and food derived ingredients because the company believes that our hair needs to be fed as well as our bodies.
The first ever product I bought after hearing about the brand was the Glisten Shampoo. It has been specifically designed for hair that is dry, damaged and in desperate need of some TLC. It promises to add volume and shine to chemically damaged hair and to repair and rejuvenate troubled locks. The company claims the shampoo will also prolong the colour of my hair and protect it from heated styling. My hair is dry and damaged from colouring and using heated styling appliances and I always long for volume in my hair so I thought this product sounded perfect for my needs.
How does it work?
Maple Syrup is included within the shampoo to add body and shine to your hair. It leaves it feeling softer and draws moisture into the hair so you should see fewer breakages as the hair will have more elasticity. Honey is also included to provide the hair with body and shine but it also nourishes the hair and the scalp deeply as it is so rich in vitamins and minerals. It strengthens the hair you have while encouraging the growth of healthy new hair.
Linseed Oil is present in order to strengthen and protect the hair and to restore it back to its former glory. It is rich in fatty acids which are required for the development of healthy new hair. It moisturises the hair and prevent frizziness, breakages and split ends. Whole Wheat Protein is included for the same reason and it leaves the hair in a much better condition.
Orange Extract is also present which feeds the hair and keeps it healthy with Vitamin C. It also gives the hair a lovely shine and tones the scalp so the hair won't become greasy so quickly. Avocado strengthens and nourishes the hair while Jojoba Oil gets the hair really clean and hydrates it deeply. Melon removes dulling pollutants from the hair allowing it to shine and Algae conditions the hair because it is protein rich.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in much the same way as a normal shampoo. It is to be applied to damp hair and massaged through the length of the hair as well as the roots and scalp. Once you have done so, you rinse out the product thoroughly and follow it up with a good conditioner.
Packaging and Price
The packaging of the shampoo is fairly plain but packed with black writing. It comes encased within a creamy white bottle which is partly see through and has a white flip top lid. It is easy to access the shampoo even with soapy wet hands.
I bought mine for £11.50 and I got 250ml of the shampoo for my money. The product is available from many online websites and the price varies slightly so it's worth having a shop around.
I like my beauty products to come with a delicious fragrance and this one certainly does. The overriding aroma is that of the Orange Extract and the scent is very refreshing, invigorating and certainly gets me awake in the morning. There is also a hint of sweetness mixed in which I imagine comes from the honey, syrup and maple sugar.
It is a nice shampoo to use and it works up enough of a lather to make me feel like it's cleaning my hair properly. When I saw the list of ingredients in this shampoo, I did wonder whether I would ever get a brush through my hair again as it sounded so sticky. Somehow and thankfully, this wasn't the case. It was easy to brush after use and felt really soft and sleek.
I am happy with the volume which this shampoo creates in my hair. It's not massive by any stretch of the imagination but it is certainly not flat or weighed down. The shampoo gives my hair body and then with the help of a little hairspray, I can get my hair as big as I like it to be. The shine is beautiful too and makes my hair look really healthy.
I'm not sure whether this shampoo prolongs my colour as I use semi permanent hair dyes which are supposed to fade with time but it doesn't strip my hair of any colour. It moisturises my hair really well and prevents it from felling dry and becoming frizzy. I notice my split ends less when using this product and my hair seems in a much better condition than before. It's also good to know that this product is protecting my hair from the hair drying and straightening that it is subjected to daily and it does seem to deal with the heat better after using this shampoo.
If you find that you like this shampoo then also available in the Glisten collection by MOP is a conditioner, hairspray, shine drops and a gloss spray.
All in all, this shampoo lives up to all of its promises. It gives my hair body and shine, hydrates it well and leaves it feeling soft, nourished and in an all round better condition, plus it smells good too. It's lovely to know that there are so many natural ingredients in the product which are benefiting your hair. This is a really good shampoo and one that I will be repurchasing once mine has run out.
Summary: A natural shampoo that adds shine and body to the hair
