Original Source Tea Tree & Mint Shampoo
Advantages: Cleanses hair thoroughly, gives a tingly fresh sensation
Disadvantages: None for me!
I have to admit that I have been pinching my boyfriend's shampoo as my Lush 'Big' shampoo has now run out and as I am poverty stricken at the moment I have been grabbing whatever bottle has been on the side, and this so happened to be the 'Original Source Mint & Tea Tree Daily Refresh shampoo".
I hadn't used this brand for many years simply out of habit of using other favourites, but after using the Mint & Tea Tree again I remembered how wonderful it was.
The Original Sauce brand prides itself on producing shampoo's shower gels and body scrubs packed full of natural ingredients. All their products are 'packed with natural stuff' (Original Source website) and are filled to the brim with various pure and natural oils and extracts from different fruits, leaves, flowers, plants and tree's.
The range has a good selection of products to suit everyone's tastes and needs. Each shampoo is sold in a tapered bottle, with a nozzle at the bottom where the shampoo will squeeze out from. The bottles are semi-transparent, with just a slight 'cloudy appearance. This means you can see the colour of the shampoo inside which is a nice touch. The bottles are simple on design and generally have black writing on them along with the name of the product in the same colour as the shampoo, shower gel or scrub inside. On the back of the bottles is directions of use and a full list of ingredients.
The "Mint and Tea Tree Daily Refresh Shampoo" is a bright mint green in colour, and as soon as you open the lid a waft of tea tree and mint hit you! You are told to simply apply to wet hair, lather, rinse and repeat if necessary. As you apply to damp hair you are surrounded in a strong minty aroma, combined with the Tea Tree scent it really wakes you up. The shampoo lathers up quickly into a rich foamy lather and rinses out easily and quickly. As you use the shampoo your scalp also begins to tingle and feels perhaps even slightly cold with the sensation, it really does do the trick to awaken both your scalp and mind! This tingly and refreshing sensation is due to the combination of the intense mint and tea tree ingredients. Mint is renowned for being able to clear the airways and your senses while also being used in the treatment of aching muscles. Tea Tree is then known to increase attention, be anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-viral. These two main ingredients combine to create a powerful intoxicating experience for both your scalp and your mind!
Now, along with these tingly refreshing results the shampoo is also great for your hair. After even just the first use I noticed my hair felt soft and very clean once dry, and smelled minty fresh all day. My long hair was also not tangled up after use even though a few times I have bypassed the conditioner. My hair feels manageable and cared for. I think this shampoo is great to really cleanse and clarify your hair and seems to strip out all the product you may have used whilst still being gentle on those locks! My boyfriend soon noticed his Original Source stash depleting as I nabbed it so I have since by trying the other shampoo's, conditioners and shower gels in the range and they all seem to be great.
The bottles are generally priced between £1 & £2 each which is quite cheap and the range is regularly on offer somewhere, often on 2 for £2, or buy one get one free promotions. The products also last a good while and a bottle lasted me a month with daily use which is really good value for money.
Not only a fab smelling and tingly experience but great hair care as well!
Summary: A great way to start your day!
