I remember buying this shampoo for a £1 in Poundland (the name alone should have told you the price) and while it cleans and washes my hair nicely enough there is very little else to say about the results it produces as it is a pretty average shampoo in my opinion. It is designed for normal hair and there are other hair types available in the range.
The plastic bottle is clear so you can easily see how much you have left rather than guessing by weight and the liquid inside has a rose pink colouring to it. The labelling is rather functional. The one design thing I'm not so keen on is the lid, it is a pop up type that you pull upwards and that creates a gap for the shampoo to be dispensed from, I find this type of design a bit messy to use, it is fine with water bottles but not a thick liquid like shampoo which can get a bit gunky and does not flow as easily.
On the plus side you do not need to use much at a time and I have reasonably long hair, down below my shoulder blades, it lathers up nicely and is very smooth to apply to my hair. It has a very rich fruity smell to it which is very pleasant and smells nice in my hair although that smell does not last very long as it was not detectable later on in the day.
In terms of the results on my hair well I would say that they are not the best that I have encountered, I certainly felt that my hair was nice and clean and it was effective at removing any product that night still be lingering in it from the night before. The main issue that I have with it is that my hair did not feel as soft as I would have liked, especially compared with the results that I get from other shampoo products. It also claims that everytime you use it the results are as good as the first time but I did not see any evidence of that, about half way down the bottle it was certainly time to switch as I was not happy with the results anymore.
For the price I paid it represented acceptable value for money and it works as a shampoo to switch to just for a change. The best thing about it for me was the smell, it is the shame that the results were not quite so good.
I recently bought a bottle of the Neutorgeana Clean Replenishing shampoo from Poundland for .......... yes you guessed right a £1. I have noticed that although the supermarkets do seem to have offers on the shampoos and conditioners lately that unless you go early the ones for dry/damaged hair seem to fly off the shelves and are not always as cheap as this.
The bottle itself is slightly tappered at the bottom compared to the top as can be seen in the picture and has a push open lid not a screw top so you have to squeeze the amount of shampoo out that you want. The only downside to this, as well as other shampoos is that the bottle is upright so when it comes to then end you need to try and balance it on the lid to make sure you get all of it out. The bottle is clear plastic so you get to see exactly how much is left in the bottle which is useful when you are nearing the end.
Neutrogena say that it "gently cleanses and provide added mositure to improve dry and damaged hair". So what's it like to use. I put the normal amount of shampoo on my hair that I use with other brands (this will vary for each person depending on how much hair you have got) and found that it latherd up really well, a bit too well so I find I don't need to use as much as I would with other brands. The shampoo left my hair squeeky clean, which I always find reassuring as I feel like it is properly clean then and it does rinse out really well once you've got rid of all the bubbles.
It left my hair clean and it did feel reasonably mositurised which I have found with other brands for dry and damaged hair to not be the case and have left my hair feeling drier than before I started.
The shampoo has a mild smell of flowers but this doesn't seem to stay around for long after you have used the conditioner and dried your hair. (I will be reviewing this seperatley)
Overall I'm really impressed by this, the price was good and with needing to use less to get the same results as other brands will mean that I can go for longer before needing to buy more. It doesn't have a strong smell that stays in your hair for long but I'm not keen on shampoos and conditioners that have strong fragrances to them. I would recommend this to try it certainly (with conditioner use) left my hair feeling soft and not "dry" as other brands have.
On a recent trip to visit a friend I forgot my shampoo so I popped into the pound shop in Edinburgh to see if they had any there for a little cheaper than other places. I found this Neutrogena Clean Replenishing shampoo for only £1 so I bought it. I have used Neutrogena products in the past and knew they were quite good so I was pleased with my find!
The bottle comes in a 300ml size and is made of clear, see-through plastic. The plastic is quite soft meaning that it is easy to squeeze the bottle to help get the shampoo out. The lid is one that you push down on one side and the other side clicks up to allow the shampoo out. This kind of lid makes the bottle really easy to open and close, but if you don't like this particular lid it is possible to just screw it off. The lid is a silver/grey plastic colour and I think the overall packaging is quite attractive.
The shampoo is meant to 'replenish moisture to improve hair and add shine' and 'sinse clean without heavy build-up'. This sounded good to me!
The shampoo is quite thick in consistency and is a pink/purple colour. The smell is quite pleasant, it smells very clean and a little fruity.
I find when using this shampoo you only have to use a small amount and it goes a really long way. You can use a tiny blob and it will create lots of bubbles and lather. I personally quite like lots of bubbles and lather since it feels like I am giving my hair a really good clean!
When I had finished washing and drying my hair I was really disappointed. My hair looked and felt quite greasy and flat. I always rinse my hair really well so I don't think it was down to my hair washing skills. The smell of the shampoo lingered slightly on my hair and it was quite pleasant, but overall I was disappointed with the results the shampoo gave. I really didn't feel like it had given me a proper wash and my hair didn't look as nice and clean as it normally does.
I have seen this in several shops so if you really want to buy it, its not that hard to find! There is a matching conditioner to go with this shampoo, which also cost me £1 at the pound shop which I use alongside the shampoo.
At £1 it's not the end of the world, and I'm going to finish this bottle since I don't like things going to waste, but once the bottle is finished I won't be buying another one.
FIRSTLY, I JUST WANT TO SAY...
This review is about Neutrogena clean replenishing shampoo. One thing to bear in mind is that there are many products in the neutrogena clean range, which come in different coloured bottles for different hair types. This shampoo is designed for normal, balanced hair, and so if this is not your hair type I can tell you straight off that you are not going to get the optimum results from this shampoo and should research the product designed for your own hair type. A lot of people (including me for a long time) believe it doesn't make all that much difference, but believe me it can, especially with Neutrogena.
BUT ENOUGH OF THAT...WHAT ABOUT THIS STUFF?
This shampoo is made by Neutrogena, who I generally consider to be a trustworthy company who make good products for a reasonable price. I rely on them for hand cream and so when it came to choosing a new shampoo their respected name (and Jennifer Love Hewitt's shiny locks in the tv advert) persuaded me that I should purchase this.
My own hair is usually pretty average. It's quite fine, and would naturally be a little greasy if it weren't for the damage I inflict on it through straightening, which makes the ends a little dry. Apart from this however, I would say my hair fits into the 'normal' category which is what this is designed for. It's aim is to gently clean hair without stripping oils and without leaving your hair heavy and greasy.
'Feels like the first time, every time' is the catchphrase. They are of course talking about the great feeling you get when you first switch shampoos and you hair is unbelievably soft and manageable for the first few washes, then it starts to build up and you hair gets used to the chemicals and it stops working as well. Not with this shampoo apparently!
WHERE CAN YOU GET IT FROM?
Anywhere really is the answer to that. Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, its all good. I personally like Home Bargains for this though, as it is much much cheaper than anywhere else.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
In Home Bargains, where I buy it from, 99p. Elsewhere, about £2 I think. It also has a matching conditioner which they recommend you use with the shampoo, which I did indeed do. If you don't want to though, I'm sure it won't make that much of a difference!
It comes in a very attractive and sleek clear plastic bottle which shows the pink toned liquid inside, with a simple silver and white label with the name in clear, easy to read font. Very nice.
It includes directions for use, the basic 'lather rinse repeat and don't get it in your eyes!' blurb that you've probably seen a million times before so I won't write it out fully.
The lid of the bottle is annoying, its one of those ones where you pop the lid up a bit and then squeeze shampoo out of the little gap in the top. It's hard to squeeze out, especially when the shampoo is running low, and the cap isn't as easy to lift up as I would like it to be! (I'm sooooo lazy!)
HOW TO USE
I'm sure you all know how to wash your hair, so I'm not going to patronise you. I will however say that a little goes a long way with this stuff, it is quite rich and gloopy. Don't worry if it doesn't lather up very well, as I find generally that it doesn't lather brilliantly, but it will still give good results and as long as you rinse it out well it won't weigh your hair down.
It smells delicious, a little fruity and flowery, and the pink translucent liquid is very pleasing to the eyes. Not that that should really matter, but it's nice anyway!
RESULTS-DOES IT WORK/DO WHAT IT PROMISES
Well, it washes hair nice enough, leaving it soft and healthy looking with a nice smell and a good shine. It can be a little fluffier than usual, but that's better than lank horrible weighed down hair!
As for 'feels like the first time every time', however, I feel this doesn't live up to that at all. The first time you use it your hair does indeed feel lovely, really clean and free of all chemical buildup, but after a few shampoos it's the same story as with every other shampoo. Hair gradually gets duller again, less soft, and the effects just aren't as pronounced as they used to be.
SO WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS SHAMPOO?
Yes and no. It's a decent enough shampoo and I do like it, it smells nice, works well enough and is generally quite nice to use. However, it doesn't work any better than a regular shampoo, plus you don't get all that much in a bottle and it seems to run out quite quickly. I'm not sure that for £2 or something whether or not it is really worth the money. For 99p however, I would go for it! It's three to four stars from me but I'm going to give four because I feel generous today.
I started using Neutrogena Shampoos on the advice of my hairdresser due to my scalp being very sensitive. The one I am using at the moment is the Neutrogena Clean Replenishing Moisturising Shampoo. What made me buy it was due to the claims on the front of the bottle. "Replenishes moisture to improve hair and add shine. Rinses clean without heavy build up!" Since having my son 7 months ago, the usual after baby hair problems began that my hair started to fall out and look limp and had lost its shine. So the last time I was in Tesco, I looked for a different shampoo in the neutrogena range and noticed this one! For 300mls of shampoo, I only paid £1.76 for it! Not bad for a named brand in my opinon! After 2 hair washes I actually remembered to put this in the bathroom. My next hairwash I used it. I wet the hair and then put about a 50p sized amount on to my hair and lathered it in! It seemed to lather well and then when I washed out left my hair very soft for a change instead of the usual bristly hair which I have had for the last few months! The big test was once I had dried my hair. My hair was easy to dry and for the first time in ages had a shine to it. My hair was soft and silky for 2 days too! My only complaint is that it can get greasy quite quickly these days since using the shampoo, but it could just be my hair starting to get back to normal. So we'll see what happens in the next couple of months! Neutrogena is a well known brand and is easily found in all good stores like Tesco and Boots! I would definately reccommend this shampoo if your hair is starting to get a bit limp and not got your usual shine! For £1.76 you can't go wrong! I use this on my daughter who is 3 and she has no problem with it either!
My hair is quite long and fine, and despite the fact that I dont use many products on it, it gets greasy quite quickly. I blame it on washing it everyday, and a buildup of shampoo, etc. So when I saw the advert for this on TV, it looked just what I needed. It claims to get rid of any buildup leaving behind really clean, shiny, manageable, all the usual, hair. The girl in the ad had lovely shiny (not greasy!) hair, and I thought to myself "I want that hair!!!" Forgetting, that it was probably a wig! Anyway, on my next trip to Tesco, I bought a bottle. It wasnt too expensive as far as I can remember (this was about 4/5 months ago), but it also wasnt so cheap that only grannys and students buy it (for washing up!). The next morning I tried it out. it didnt smell too great but I thought to myself if thats the price you gotta pay for gorgeous hair, let it be. Anyway, it lathered up quite nicely but unfortunately being a bit of an idiot, I got some in my eye.... and it hurt like HELL! Getting normal shampoo in your eye hurts, but this was something else. I had to get out of the shower because the water was reacting with it in my eye and instead of washing it away, it was just makin it foam more! Evil. After Id gotten over the pain, I carried on washing my hair dreaming of luscious locks. I did one shampoo, because I wash my hair everyday, and instead of using their conditioner as recommended, I used my normal one (Aussie Mega). Naughty me. Well, my hair felt a little bit more knotty than usual when I got out the shower; bad sign. But I just ignored it. I blow dried my hair as usual, and it looked the same really. A bit shiny, quite knotty :s but it did feel very clean which I suppose is why I used it. i did feel a bit disappointed that my hair was not gleaming like gold but then that was me being silly and expecting miracles. HOWEVER, despite it feeling extra clean to start off with, by 5pm, it was ultra greasy! Nightmare!
Maybe this is a clever little quirk from Neutrogena to make you use more of their shampoo. Well, whatever it was, it sucked. And I threw the shampoo in the bin in a tantrum. Needless to say, I didnt buy it again as the pain and the fact that my hair only stayed clean for about 7 hours put me off a bit!
I bought this brand of shampoo when I saw the advertisement on tele, so I thought, hey I'd give it a go. I am using the light green one, i can't remember which name it is. Most of the opinions that I have read say that it is discusting with a capital D, well I personally disagree. I thought that it made my hair nice and shiny. I can;t understand what people are saying about the smell, i've had people smell my hair and they've said that it's nice. But enough about that. The bottles are £1.99 each and have the same conditioners for the shampoo. If you leave the shampoo on a wee while, it does actually make your hair feel soft. But, this might just be the green one, I'm not sure. Anyway, after you have washed your hair with the shampoo twice, use the conditioner. Little hint though, leave this on for a while as well and make sure that the whole head is covered, other wise you'll have patches of soft hair and patches of straw! My hair is really long, and blonde. I've been trying to find a way to prevent the static formations occuring! They really are quite embarassing! I turn to talk to someone, and suddenly i can't see anything because my hair has just taken over my face! Anyway I've tried a number of ways of trying the shampoo - leaving the shampoo on longer, leaving the conditioner on for a shorter length of time, etc etc. Tonight, I have left the shampoo on for ages and the conditioner. Lets hope I can see next time I turn round! I must admit though, since I have been using this shampoo, my hair has been less static, and it feels nice and smooth. But that's just what I think! Overall I give the product high reccendations, but it might depend on the type of hair you have! I hope this op has been useful, if it isnt, write me a comment and I'll see what I can do! P.S Buy it from Boots because then you can use your card!
I have heard from many sources that it is not a good idea to keep on using the same shampoo because it builds up a residue on your hair and become less effective at getting your hair clean. Becuase of this, I make sure that I buy a range of different shampoo and swap between brands regularly. I have two or three 'tried and trusted' shampoos that I use regularly but am always on the look out for new products to try. Not only does this mean that I change my shampoo regularly but that I can take advantage of the 'buy one get one free' offers in the supermarket - a real benefit of having no brand loyalty. This was how I came to try the Neutrogena Clean shampoo and conditioner. It was new, it was a well known brand and, best of all, it was two for the price of one. My husband used the shampoo before I did and didn't tell me that he had borrowed it. I was slightly puzzled by how strange he smelt so had a sniff of his hair and it was unbelievably unpleasant. I asked him what on earth he had put on his hair and was really surprised to find that it was my new shampoo that was making such a pong. It was a very strong chemical smell that actually reminded me of the medicated shampoo that you use on horses if they get a skin infection. At the time, my husband was wearing Cool Water aftershave which has quite a distinctive (but lovely) smell so I thought that perhaps that it was just that the two smells didn't combine together well. So I took the risk and used the Neutrogena shampoo the next day. It didn't smell too bad going on and it made a pretty good lather and seemed to wash my hair thorougly. How thorougly only became apparent after my hari was dry. It was like straw - there was no moisture left in my hair at all. It wasn't just clean - it was stripped of all its natural oils to become this strange sticking out hay on top of my head. And, yes, it smelt disgusting. I don't know why all
the shampoos that I use that have really lovely smells fade within the hour but this insult to the nostrils stayed with me all day. I had to put my hair up so that it wasn't hanging round my face in an effort to escape the smell. Needless to say, the bottle is now gathering dust on the bathroom shelf. The strange this is that the conditioner is lovely. Matching shampoo and conditioner usually smell the same but these couldn't be more different. The conditioner has a light, slightly spicy smell which isn't at all unpleasant. More than that, the conditioner is really thick and moisturising (I suppose it would have to be if you used it after that hair stripper that they call shampoo). In terms of how soft and tangle-free my hair is, this conditioner beats all but one of the conditioners that I use regularly. In summary, the shampoo is to be avoided at all costs. It left my hair dried out and smelling disgusting. The conditioner, however, is well worth a try. Not a bad smell and it makes my hair really soft and manageable. Perhaps if I used the two together, the benefits of the conditioner would make up for the disadvantages of the shampoo. But the shampoo was so bad that I'm not prepared to risk it.
When I first saw the adverts for this shampoo, I thought I might as well try it out. I was in the supermarket about a week later, and I was in a rush, and needed some shampoo, so I looked around, and found Neutrogena. As I was considering buying it anyway, and it was buy one get one free, I decided to buy two. When I tried it out, I didn't think that I had got any in my eye, but my eyes stung really badly, I must of had to wash my eyes out about three different times, which is something I never get with other shampoos like Pantene and Wash & Go. I tried again with it the next time I washed my hair, I thought if I was really careful I could avoid getting any in my eye, I didn't think I had and yet it still stung, for no apparent reason. When I started drying my hair, even though I had rinsed my hair really carefully, with clean, hot water, my hair was sticky and I had to wash it out again, which then somewhat improved it. The next morning my eyes were still irritated by the shampoo, and hurt quite badly. I would therefore not recommend this to anyone who thinks they might have a problem with their eyes, in fact to be totally honest, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone at all.
I tried this product as it was on BOGOFF (buy one get one free) at Sainsburys and although it was an ok shampoo, I certainly dont think it is wort the amount of money. I think you are paying mainly for the name and the packaging. If this was slightly cheaper it might be worth it but on the whole I found it justan average shampoo. It has a fairly rich lather and left no residue and smells pleasant but afterwards I cant say I felt my hair was particularly well noursished! I would buy it again if it was on offer but not otherwise
