“ Brand: Palmoline / Type: Hair Shampoo „
I saw this bright green bottle of Palmolive Naturals Shampoo for just a quid at one of our local pound shops so decided to give it a go as I've always been pleased with Palmplive products.
This shampoo states that it gives a 'silky shine effect' & claims to give 'up to 3 times smoother hair'. As all four of us wash our hair on a daily basis I thought it seemed a pretty good buy especially if it lived up to it's promises.
The sturdy plastic bottle is a generous 400ml & it's easy to use as much or as little as you need due to it's good design. It has a flip-open/shut lid & the hole os a good size & doesn't gunge up.
The smell is rather strong when you open the lid but soon calms down when the hair is rinsed - it's not unpleasant - just a bit of a shock! I can't really describe the smell as the ingredients are so very difficult to read as they're in tiny white print. On the front it's telling me it contains aloe vera but I didn't think that this had much smell? It smells kind of fruity & citrusy but rather chemical-smelling as well.
It contains silk proteins according to the writing on the front of the bottle & there's a picture of an aloe vera plant.
The shampoo itself is quite thick & lathers well but needs a fair bit of rinsing to remove it all from the hair. It left my hair feeling very clean & I was able to comb it through wet without any problem.
When my hair was dry it looked nice & shiny but no more than when I use other shampoos.
The thing I didn't like about it is the 'film' it seems to leave on my hair & my hair seemed more static than usual. But it did feel soft despite the film.
I'm not sure I'd ever buy it at full price - my daughters both used it but didn't comment on it (either good/bad) & didn't ask me to buy the same again.
- initially strong-smelling - but this fades when shampooed out.
- good thick shampoo but needs a lot of rinsing.
- leaves hair feeling & looking clean & shiny (but we all have shiny hair anyway).
- didn't like the 'film' or 'coating' it left on my hair.
- ingredients & directions really difficult to read because of tiny print.
I bought Palmolive Honey and Milk Shampoo and Conditioner recently due to the fact that it was on offer. I think I got them for about £1 each, but I do know that they are not that much more than this usually, when not on any special offer at a supermarket.
The results were absolutley amazing. The shampoo is thick in consistency and is a pearly shade of white. It didn't feel too fatty or greasy though, and you didn't have to use a great amount to get a good lather up.
The conditioner was rather fatty and thick but once applied to the hair it made it feel silky. I leave it on for about 2 - 5 minutes and after rinsing (a lot) my hair felt wonderful.
It did take a lot of rinsing to rid my hair from all the residue but I suppose this happens with most shampoos and conditioners. After blow drying my hair it felt absolutley wonderful and I will definately be buying this again.
Available: in most good chemists and supermarkets e.g. semi-chem
Price: £1-£3 approx.
In a quest to find a new shampoo to give my hair which I push to the its limit through straightening and dying, I turned to Honey and Milk Palmolive Naturals for dry hair shampoo to try and get a cheaper and effective shampoo than the more up market shampoos I was used to using like Tony and Guy.
I was pleasantly surprised to find great results from this particular shampoo. After the first wash there was a small difference to my hairs condition but not much worth noticing but by the time I finished the bottle there was a noticeable difference to my hair quality and durability for the constant teasing and straightening I put my hair through in a day. My hair also smelt great after and was really manageable. I applied this shampoo in the same way I apply any other shampoo and there was no extra hassel with usage of this product.
The Milk and Honey Palmolive Shampoo comes in a yellow bottle that has green text on it. It also has a picture of milk and honey on it in the centre of the bottle.
I recommend this shampoo to anyone who wants to save a bit of money and still get a great quality product that comes through with fantastic results. It doesn't work miracles straight away but with constant use your hair will be shining and healthy in no time!
I have run out of the last shampoo I was using, a very good one albeit, but they do say that changing your shampoo now and again does your hair good. So off I go, money clenched in tight fist. (Pun intended), and end up in Quidsaver. There I am having a mosey around and find on the shelves the little gem I am about to write about. Palmolive Naturals Shampoo line. I have had dandruff off and on for a few years now, I think it is something to do with having used an anti-dandruff shampoo when it was not needed, and hey presto! when I stopped using it....the dreaded flakes appeared. Bummer huh? The hotter the weather gets the itchier my scalp is, and the circle begins; the more you scratch the more flakes you produce, the more flakes there are, the itchier it gets....and we go on.... and on... and on.... So, back to the main theme, I spotted the range; all well visible in bold writing on the bottles. The one I have picked is the Anti-dandruff frequent use. This one is Cedarwood and wild mint. The smell is wicked! Really lovely and fresh and clean smelling. It lasts untill the next wash, and survives nicotine attacks. (important factor for me) And it only cost a POUND! The format is the following: Pale blue, semi-transparent bottle containing 400ml of product, easy to open flip-lid (important with wet slippery hands), clear instuctions of use. Lots of languages on the back for all those different international dandruff sufferers. I quote what they reckon this shampoo does for you: New Palmolive Naturals Antidandruff shampoo is specially formulated to control Dandruff. It is enriched with natural extract of cedarwood, known for its reviving qualities and extract of wild mint, known to be stimulating and purifying. This mild formula is appropiate for everyday use. New palmolive naturals....softness day after day. Bloody hell....having read all t
he ingredients and found them double dutch to me....hopefully they will have made sense to someone out there, if not just skip the whole blimming paragraph, read the end part and go buy the stuff! The ingredients are as follow: Aqua. Sodium C12-13 Pareth Sulfate. Cocamidopropyl Betaine. Sodium Chloride. Climbazole. DMDM Hyantoin. Polyquaternium-7. Tetrasodium EDTA. 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1. 3-Diol. Juniperus Virginiana. Mentha Aquatica. CI 42090. The bottle also kindly includes the Telephone numbers for consumer affairs, ( this mean you get a sly one on the side?) Well, my verdict after having used it several times is that it does eradicate the dandruff, cleans hair really well, and doesn't leave it feeling dry and frizzy like many other antidandruff treatments.In fact, my hair felt silky and soft after using it. In my case conditioner wasn't needed, and that is rare. The itching dissapeared and the smell remains....lurvleeee! It is quite a thick shampoo, so it lasts really well too. I needed only a handfull for my long hair. I have also seen this range in highstreet chemists and they are also being sold there at £1. so I think the value for money is great. Thanks for the read.
I have to wash my hair every morning, if I wash my hair at night, it is greasy by the next day. Although my hair is very short, all this washing means I go through a lot of shampoo. Over the past few years, I have tried out quite a few different shampoos; all of the big names and even supermarket brands. Overall, I found that the big brand names had the best shampoo, but I also found that after a week or so the shampoos were leaving “build up” on my hair. So I adopted a policy of having more than one shampoo at a time and alternating between them to avoid build up; this does work to a certain degree, but then one day (not that long ago), I came across a different shampoo… …it is called “Palmolive Naturals Shampoo” from Colgate Palmolive, and as the bottle claims, rather than drying out your hair, this shampoo leaves up to 20% more moisture in your hair. When I first saw this claim, I wasn’t particularly impressed, but after using the shampoo for a couple of days, it became apparent that the claims on the bottle were true, it really didn’t dry your hair out as much as other shampoos. This alternative approach is quite logical; rather than removing all of the natural oils from your hair, and then replacing them with artificial ones by using conditioner, this shampoo simply leaves some of these natural oils on your hair. This is a very effective approach, I have found that my hair does not go as “frizzy” as it used to with other shampoos, nor does the shampoo seem to leave build up on your hair; I have been using the shampoo for a least a couple of months and my hair is as soft and unfrizzy everyday now as it was when I first used the shampoo. The shampoo comes in 400ml bottles, and in at least 3 different types (the only one I have used is the green one, I think the different kinds are for different hair types). As far as I know, there is not a conditioner to accompany this shampoo, but I ha
ve honestly found that you do not need one. My only criticisms of the product are that it is not all that widely available; I have been in several supermarkets that do not seem to stock it, and it's packaging is a bit unimaginative. I really cannot express how pleased I am with this shampoo, I highly recommend it.
