When it comes to shampoos I do tend to stick to the brands that I know work well; however there are occasions when I spot a bargain that is too good to pass up and I am tempted into trying something new. A few weeks ago whilst shopping in the Poundland I spotted the Palmolive Brilliant colour shampoo selling for, you guessed it, a pound for a 400ml bottle and with Palmolive being a reputable brand (it's part of Colgate) I thought I would see how this product would fare. Although I am in my early thirties, unfortunately the white hairs started to appear a few years ago and I have taken to dyeing my hair at home every few months. In an attempt to make this colour last longer I make an effort to go for hair care products that promise to maintain and care for dyed hair.
The shampoo comes in a bright red coloured bottle that has an oval shape and a flip top lid. The shampoo is part of the Palmolive 'Naturals' range and contains pomegranate and jojoba oil and is also enriched with a UV filter to protect hair from damage from the sun. This combination of ingredients will, according to the claims on the packaging, protect and nourish your hair, helping it keeps its brilliant colour shine.
The shampoo itself is white in colour and has quite a thick consistency, which in my opinion indicates a quality product as it doesn't appear to be watered down like some of the cheaper brands. Once applied to wet hair it forms a good lather with lots of bubbles. The smell too is pleasant - I would describe it as quite fruity with a bit of a tang, rather like tart berries. The shampoo rinsed out of the hair quite easily leaving my hair feeling clean and refreshed. I was suitably impressed and feeling pleased with myself that I'd bagged a bargain!
However my opinion soon changed once my hair had dried off. As I have mid-length hair and don't tend to use a hair dryer my hair can take a few hours to dry. Once it started to dry off I noticed that my hair was feeling a little heavy and was not its usual wavy self. Running a brush through it again I noticed that it felt as though there was a layer of coating on my hair which left it looking limp and there was certainly no shine to it. I tend to wash my hair every other day but by the end of the first day my hair felt greasy and unclean. I thought that perhaps I had not rinsed out the shampoo properly and so when I used it again the next day I took extra care in rinsing my hair out but unfortunately had the same result. I also thought that perhaps the results I was seeing was due to the conditioner in the same range but trying it by itself on another occasion left my hair in the same condition, albeit with more knots.
In the end I had to conclude that this shampoo was simply not suited to my hair and I gave the rest of the bottle to my mum to try. It turns out she really likes it - it cleans her hair well and makes it look shiny and vibrant, although she's not convinced it makes her hair colour last any longer than normal. In fact I noticed the other day that she'd also been to Poundland and bought a few more bottles of this so she obviously likes it!
Overall I was not too impressed with this shampoo as it didn't suit my hair, leaving it feeling heavy, limp and dull looking and I won't be purchasing again.
I'm reviewing PALMOLIVE naturals shampoo.Brilliant colour .
It cost me £1 in POUNDWORLD.
What attracted me to this shampoo was the red bottle,and seeing the PALMOLIVE name on it assured me that it was a quality product .On reading that it was geared to coloured hair that clinched it ,so I was happy to pick up the bottle for a mere £1.
The bottle contains 400mls,which is very generous , and it is a very attractive rounded shape.
It has the the flip top opening that most manufacturers use these days.
Reading the label I had noted that it contained pomegranate, and not being a fan of fruity shampoos I flipped it open in the shop to get an idea of the smell. Surprisingly it wasn't that fruity ,so I thought it would suit me fine.
I have short hair so I don't need masses of shampoo to get a decent lather,and I must say this one was excellent in that regard anyway. Nice and thick,not runny,and it lathered up really well with a small amount.
The smell in use surprised me. Yes it is fruity, but not the bitter tart aroma that you get with lemon or lime nor the sweet smell apple scented products give off. More subtle and heavy and pleasing like the fruit scent used in some perfumes rather than a cleaning product fruitiness.Perhaps the jojoba oil it contains helped balance it.
It washed out easily and left no tackiness or residue like some shampoos do.
I didn't use conditioner after using this,because having quite healthy hair I rarely need it and I was happy that after a quick toweling my hair dried nice and soft and shiny.
I really can't say if it helped maintain my colour because I re-colour every 8 weeks anyway, but I will say it left my hair the way the conditioner in my box of colour leaves my hair.....intensely soft and shiny.
I'm happy with the results of this shampoo and the only reason I don't use it continuously is because I find my hair tends to 'get used' to shampoos after a few weeks and they seem less effective,so I rotate the ones that I find work well. This is one I'll be buying again and I'm happy to recommend it.
Thank you for reading.
I like to look for bargains when it comes to hair care even though I tend to only buy brands. I came across Palmolive's Naturals Brilliant Colour Shampoo and decided to give it a go for the price, feeling confident it should be decent quality as it's a brand with years of experience in the beauty industry. Whilst it was nice to use, it didn't do much for the colour in my locks.
This can be bought in a large oval shaped 400ml red plastic bottle with flip top lid. It's easy to identify with the 'Palmolive' logo near the top, underneath which is the variety, 'Brilliant Colour'. This is designed for coloured hair and it's described as containing a 'caring formula' that 'helps to protect and nourish your hair keepings its brilliant colour shine'. It does this by a blend of jojoba oil, UV-filter and pomegranate extract, enabling you to, apparently, 'shine with life'.
The shampoo itself is creamy and white-ish in colour, and the first thing I noticed when putting some into my hand was the sweet, fruity scent that I instantly liked. It has a good consistency that's neither too thin or too thick, meaning just a small blob is needed to lather with some warm water in your hair, using this as any normal shampoo. It lathers fairly well and gives good coverage so the bottle lasted me quite a while. Using it is really nice, in part thanks to the smell, so it left me feeling a little pampered without much effort.
The shampoo rinses out easily and I don't find it leaves any residue, which is always a bonus. All I really want from a shampoo is for it to be at least pleasant to use, quick and for it to leave my hair feeling freshly washed. This shampoo does just that, leaving my hair feeling clean and refreshed, and me a little uplifted thanks to the fruity smell that lingers afterwards. As for the effect on my hair itself, I would say it's left with a little shine but I never really noticed a great improvement in terms of its softness or colour retention. Unfortunately, this wasn't a shampoo that gave me the superstar hair I always dreamed of! Not that I had expected it to, but it's a little disappointing if you want something to keep the dye looking fresh for longer, because this didn't seem to do much for my red hair, which faded just as quickly as normal.
All in all, this is a decent all-around shampoo that's lovely to use because of the sweet scent, but I can't recommend it for keeping colour shining. For £1, however, it's a good one to try and 400ml goes a long way, hence the 4 stars.
This can be bought for the bargain price of £1 in, you guessed it, Poundland (400ml)!
I bought this shampoo a few weeks ago for £1 in Poundland. I don't stick to one brand of shampoo and pick up whatever is on offer. The vibrant red colour attracted me to this shampoo and I thought it could be good as any previous products I have tried from the Palmolive brand have been good.
The bottle is 400ml and has a flip open lid which I prefer to one which you have to screw off as it's easy to open even with wet hands in the shower.
It claims to protect and nourish hair to keep it's colour and shine and it contains Jojoba oil and pomegranate extract. It also has UV protection which I liked the sound of, not that there's a lot of sunshine at the moment but in summer I struggle with my coloured hair getting dried out.
I also bought the conditioner in this range but have yet to use it as I only feel the need to use conditioner if my hair is dry.
The shampoo is a fairly thick liquid and it is easy to squeeze out the required amount. As it is thick I don't find I need to use a lot of this shampoo and a little goes a long way. When I put this onto my hair it lathered up really well and I really liked the scent. It is a scent that would really wake you up on a morning and although it seems quite strong even after rinsing my hair, once it was dried only a pleasant trace of the scent remained. It is nice, but not too strong.
My hair had a nice shine when dried, after a few weeks of using it I don't think it has made my colour seem to last any longer or seem any more 'brilliant' but I am very happy with the shampoo. I love the smell and I think it's quite a luxurious shampoo for the price with its thick consistency and how much it lathers up. I will be buying another bottle on my next trip to Poundland as I think this shampoo can't be beaten by any other budget shampoo.
Palmolive currently offer a range of handwash, hair care and shower gels.
This shampoo is part of the Naturals range from Palmolive. It is perfect for those with coloured hair. This shampoo is enriched with pomegranate extract, jojoba oil and a UV filter. As well as cleansing your hair, this shampoo is designed to nourish and leave your coloured hair shiny.
A matching conditioner is also available.
This shampoo is presented in a tall, curvy red bottle. The design of the bottle is basic and there isn't anything particularly eyecatching about it. The shampoo can be dispensed through a small hole underneath a flip top cap. I find the cap is often too stiff - this makes it a little awkward to open and close which often results in leakages. The bottle can be recycled and the shampoo has a 12month shelf life.
~Price and Availability~
This shampoo doesn't seem to be available in supermarkets. It is however, stocked by Poundland and Poundworld for £1.00 (duh!). This price is for a 400ml bottle.
Having coloured hair I do tend to opt for shampoos and conditioners suitable for my hair type - most of the time anyway. I had previously been using L'Oreal shampoo and couldn't stand the scent at all. When it came to replacing my bottle, I was happy to spot this Palmolive shampoo in my local Poundworld. I had a quick sniff and was happy with the scent so I picked up a bottle to try. If it wasn't suitable then I hadn't lost much. I also bought the conditioner as I have dry hair and need both products to keep my hair in good condition.
I don't ask a great deal from a shampoo. I do need it cleanse my hair, not irritate my sensitive scalp and not to dry out my hair - anything extra is a bonus. This shampoo is lovely to use. It is white in colour and reasonably thick. A little goes a long way which makes this shampoo even better value for money! I have thick hair and only need a small blob each time I use this shampoo. It lathers up great forming a thick, creamy lather. The shampoo rinses well leaving no residue and I only need to wash my hair the once each time before applying my conditioner.
The scent of this shampoo is gorgeous. It is very fruity with a clean, soap undertone - it is quite a natural scent which I like. The scent clings to my hair and is enhanced by the matching conditioner. On the odd occasion that I haven't had time to condition my hair, I have been happy with the results of the shampoo alone. My hair is clean and whilst it doesn't claim to be an anti dandruff shampoo, dryness on my scalp has improved with regular use. My hair feels fairly soft. I find this shampoo keeps my colour looking fresh and shiny whereas some regular shampoos leave it looking a little dull. I like to use the shampoo and conditioner together for extra shine and scent.
Whenever my fiance has ran out of his own shampoo, he uses this shampoo. It is family friendly and very gentle. This shampoo leaves my fiances hair soft and clean too. The scent may be fruity, but it isn't overly feminine so my fiance doesn't feel silly using it. I find this shampoo to be excellent value for money and I can highly recommend it. For a colour hair shampoo, it is cheap and effective. It keeps my colour vibrant for longer and I am happy with that. I tend to wash my hair every second or third day with this shampoo and this suits me.
Thanks for reading :)
I adore beauty items and though I admit to having a preference for anything Yves Rocher related, I do still buy everyday brands as I'm lucky enough to live within a stones throw from a Superdrug store, which is often frequented by me, even if it is just for window shopping purposes! On a recent visit for some pain killers, I found myself perusing the shelves where the shampoos and conditioners were displayed simply because our local store has been remodeled and everything had been moved around with the shampoos on the adjacent shelves to the pain killers (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it). I noticed that several Palmolive shampoos and matching conditioners were all on offer at just 99p so decided at that price to stock up.
Though I bought both a shampoo and conditioner this review will focus entirely on just the shampoo, though there may be the odd reference to the coordinating products, and the fragrance I opted for is the Pomegranate & Jojoba Oil for coloured hair.
*~*Price, packaging & availability*~*
As I have previously just stated this bottle was a very cheap and economically priced 99p in Superdrug, which given the fact this is a fairly large 400 ml in size then I deem this to be a very good value product - if it works of course.
This particular shampoo is called Brilliant Colour and is unsurprisingly for coloured hair. Being in an alluring fragrance of Pomegranate & Jojoba Oil I had to admit I had high expectations of this shampoo merely from the scent it emitted alone.
Being housed in an attractively coloured bright red plastic bottle this shampoo certainly stood out amongst the others on the shelves and I was drawn to it shallowly because of the 'pretty bottle' at first, I have to admit. As I colour my hair every few months I was very pleased to see that this shampoo was directed at people for me with coloured hair so bought both this and the matching conditioner costing a grand total of £1.98 - bargain.
The bottle is slim line from the side view whilst from the front it has a wide appearance which is tall and tapers in giving a rounded look and as mentioned is in an attractive bright red. Apart from the logo which is in a bold white font and a small picture of a pomegranate sliced in half there is no other decoration. To access the shampoo there is a flip top lid and a large hole concealed under this for the product to be poured out via.
As Palmolive is a well known and popular brand, most large supermarkets and chemists along with anywhere that sells toiletries is probably going to stock the brand. I bought this from Superdrug where they regularly stock several of the different fragranced shampoos/ conditioners by the Palmolive brand but it's worth checking online before hand if specifically wanting something to check availability.
*~*My experience of using the shampoo*~*
As a rule I tend to buy Aussie products when I can as I find they really suit the condition of my hair not to mention how beautiful they smell. Unless Aussie products are on offer though, I just can't justify spending nearly £6 each on a shampoo and conditioner so have to look for alternative lower priced products, so when I spotted these at just 99p I was very pleased with my find.
On opening the flip top lid there is a very intensive fruity aroma that greets me and though it's pleasant enough it doesn't smell like pomegranates to me, more of a rich berry scent such as red currants. On squeezing some shampoo out of the bottle I can see it's of a thickish consistency and is a bright white in colour, whilst the texture has the usual generic shampoo feel to it of being slippy and greasy.
The fragrance seems more intensified when applied to my wet hair and though it's nice enough it has a slight artificial aroma to it unlike other Palmolive shampoos that I've tried in the past which seems far more fresher and naturally scented.
The shampoo lathers up very quickly and only a very small amount is needed as it disperses well throughout my hair and rinses away as quickly as it lathers. As I colour my hair it can become dry if a conditioner is not used, but my hair after shampooing and rinsing has actually felt very soft and smooth though I wouldn't risk omitting a conditioner so can't comment exactly how it would be if it were to be just shampooed then dried.
I have used the matching conditioner on several occasions after shampooing as well as other branded conditioners and have found my hair to feel in superb condition afterwards.
*~*Results and recommended*~*
On towel drying my hair I've found it to feel super soft and still smelling pleasantly of berries (still not a hint of pomegranates though to me) and my hair has felt easy to comb through whilst damp and even easier to style when dry. I have quite straight hair which has recently been cut into a short bob and this shampoo seems to do the job and is extremely good value for the price I paid. My husband uses whichever shampoo happens to be within his grasp whilst showering and even though he doesn't have coloured hair he has commented on how soft his own hair has felt after using.
The fragrance may just fall short of the mark for me but the actual shampoo is very good value and leaves my hair feeling thoroughly clean afterwards and isn't flyaway either - just smooth and tamed looking. I haven't noticed it to irritate my scalp at all which certain shampoos have done in the past, and it certainly smells pleasant enough after using so for 99p I'd be a fool not to buy this again.
A nice and cheap shampoo that does what it's supposed to.
I only bought this shampoo as it was on offer, I had never used this brand before let alone this shampoo. I pick this shampoo and the conditioner up for £1 each, I am always looking for things on offer to cut costs just like everyone at the moment. I think I got a pretty good buy as the bottle is quite big and holds 400ml.
The shampoo comes in a curved red bottle with a deeper red curved lid at the top, the top has a flip top lid with quite a large hole inside for dispensing. This shampoo is Pomegranate and Jojoba oil and is for coloured hair, my hair is naturally a dirty brown colour so is always coloured. The claim is that "the caring formula helps to protect and nourish your hair keeping it's brilliant colour" On the rear of the bottle there is also 3 diagrams about how it is protecting your hair and the usual ingredients etc.
The shampoo smells like berries and is white in colour, the shampoo is quite thick and I find I use more of this brand than others. My hair doesn't seem to lather up very well using this shampoo either although it does rinse out easily and doesn't leave a residue. My hair does have a lovely shine using this but is not as soft as other shampoos leave it and I don't think it helps prolong the colour any better than anything else I have tried.
Not overly impressed and I think my daughter has ended up using more of the bottle than what I have - she has a tendency to think she's funny getting daddy to let her use my shampoo. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this one again.
For many years I have been faithful to one brand of shampoo and conditioner, namely Alberto Balsam, so I was not previously in a position to make a comparison. However, a few weeks ago, I purchased Palmolive Naturals Shampoo Brilliant Color and I now realise how inferior my previous brand actually was.
I decided that I was desperately in need of a change of hair products, particularly as my hair was starting to look and feel a little limp as a result of many years of abuse from hair straighteners and dyes. I purchased the shampoo at Poundland as it easily caught my eye with its' bright red rigid plastic container with an easy to open flip top lid.
The familiar logo of Palmolive is situated on the upper section of the bottle and we are provided with an image of a pomegranate to depict the contents of this shampoo. The bottle contains 400 ml of product and on the reverse are three magnified images of a strand of hair and various arrows indicating to us the benefits of using this shampoo.
Palmolive claim that in using this product our hair will "shine with life", particularly due to its' jojoba oil content. We are advised that the pomegranate extract and jojoba oil, together with the UV filter will protect and nourish our hair. To be honest, I very rarely take notice of claims such as these, as in my opinion, all manufacturers will say what they think we want to hear in an effort to persuade us to buy their products.
The shampoo is easily dispensed and is of a fairly thick consistency. I only needed to apply a very small amount of the white cream to my hair, which surprised me somewhat, particularly as I have long and thick hair. I normally need to apply a good dollop, but was amazed that I only needed a 50p piece size to efficiently and effectively wash my hair.
The shampoo lathered the minute I started to massage it into my hair and its' fragrance was simply beautiful. It smelled fairly strong and was very clean and fresh. Whilst I'm not very good at describing the fragrances of both shampoos and conditioners, I would advise that the beautiful scent resembled that of an extremely high quality product.
As I tend to wash my hair every other day, I only ever shampoo once, which I feel is sufficient for my needs. The product washed out very easily and left my hair feeling beautifully soft and smooth. I applied my conditioner as normal and towel dried my hair.
I was totally lost for words when I stepped out of the shower, as hubby, who very rarely gives out compliments, informed me that I smelled gorgeous and wanted to know what it was that smelled so beautiful! After I picked myself up from the floor, I let him take a sniff of my hair, so this product clearly receives full marks from him! I found that the subtle fragrance remained in my hair until the following morning.
I have been using this shampoo for the past few weeks and my hair feels absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful shine. I feel that this is an extremely high quality product at a very low price, particularly as I managed to purchase my bottle from Poundland.
I have checked both Boots and Tesco websites and did not receive any research results for this product. However, as previously stated, you can find this shampoo in Poundland and I have seen it in stores such as Superdrug and Lloyds Pharmacy.
Once opened, the contents should be used within twelve months and the container can be recycled once empty.
As this is such an effective and reasonably priced product, Palmolive Naturals Shampoo Brilliant Color receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
