Regis Hair Salons can be found in most towns and cities across the UK and are growing to have a good repuation. I have reviewed Regis as a salon already, but last week I went in to my local salon after being told by a friend about an offer on their hair products at the moment.
~Why did I need a new shampoo?~
After years of having highlights in my hair it is starting to get very weak. I have my hair cut every 6 weeks or so to keep on top of split ends, but they still kept appearing. My hair is in great condition underneath, but on top where the bleach is, my hair has come to resemble something inbetween straw and wool. Not a nice thought.
I have tried all different shampoos and conditioners, Dove, Orginal Source, Pantenne, Tony and Guy and Aussie to name a few. I have used all their repair, protect, rescue remedies, and conditioning treatments but nothing seemed to work. I have been told numerous times to stay away from Salon shampoo as they just put the price as high as they like, but I thought I would give it a go. Anything was worth a shot with my mess of a hairdo.
I walked into the salon and started to browse in the shop area (they have a shop at the front of the salon about the size of a small newsagents), and a girl came up and asked if I needed any help with anything. I told her that I was looking for a new shampoo and didn't want something like Tigi, or any named brand. I wanted preferably their own brand as I know that when I go to a Regis salon for my haircuts, they always use this, so I know it suits my hair.
Regis have their own brand of hair products called Design Line, in which they do practically everything you can think of for hair. There are all different types of shampoo, and the assistant could see my hair is poker straight, so I obviously use straighteners. She showed me Design Line Straight Pressed Shampoo, which was priced at £10.80. However, she told me about the box set on offer, for £18.00 which included the shampoo but also included the conditioner (usually £10.80), straightening spray (around £12) and a straightening protector (around £15), so I got about £55 worth of products for £18.00 - Bargain!
~What was the product like?~
The Shampoo comes in a 300ml bottle, or you can buy a 500ml. I opted for the 300ml to start off with as it was in the boxset. The bottle is fairly plain and simple, but as they say its whats inside that counts! The shampoo contains Shea Butter as an ingredient, which is one of the most moisturising ingredients in the world, being used for 1000s of years by women in the rainforests. When putting it on my hair it made an instant difference as my hair just seemed to soak up the moisture being offered by the shampoo, even though my hair was obviously wet, I could still see a difference from using normal shampoos. It lathers well, and you only need a very small amount. I also noticed it is very easy to rinse out. Often I am standing there for what feels like an eternity waiting for my hair to be bubble free, and it certainly wasn't the case with this shampoo. It has a very clean and fresh smell to it, and leaves your hair feeling super-clean and soft.
I used my normal conditioner, and decided to save the Regis conditioner untill I next washed my hair, as I wanted to see if the shampoo made a difference on it's own. I let my hair dry naturally as usual, and then ran the straighteners over it afterwards to control any fly away bits. My hair was softer than it has been in a long time, and was alot more managable. I hardly needed to use the straighteners as my hair just seemed to look straight without them.
As I have already said, I visit Regis salons every 6 weeks or so, and my hair always looks good and feels great afterwards, but I always put this down to the stylists, blow drying, and straightening my hair professionally, but to be honest, after using this product, I think the results you get from the salon have alot to do with the products they use. In the salons they ONLY use Design Line products, and since using the shampoo on it's own, I have used the full collection as a regime, and my hair felt like I had just been to have it cut and styled.
I will be using this shampoo from now on. Since initially buying the boxset a week ago, I have washed my hair 4 times, and the condition of my hair seems to be improving each time, by a big difference. I washed my hair on my day off on Monday, went into work on Tuesday and a girl I work with asked me if I had had my hair done, as it looked really nice, and I never mentioned the shampoo to her prior to this. On telling her what I had used, she too went and bought some and thinks it is amazing stuff too.
Although it is a little pricy at £10.80 a bottle, the boxset is amazingly good value, and the assistant who served me in the salon told me that they also have regular 3 for 2 offers on them too, so that makes it a little easier on the pocket. The money I have spent on numerous products, trying to improve the condition of my hair, probably amounts to way more than this anyway, at least now I know I have found something that works!
A great shampoo, a little pricy, but well worth it!
