“ Brand: Regis / Type: Hair Shampoo „
A couple of weeks ago I decided to treat myself to a visit to the hairdressers. My hair was looking rather dull and flat and I decided I was in need of some blonde highlights to lift not only my hair, but my flagging spirits.
I have really fine hair which needs all the help it can get, to make it look fuller and in tip top condition. I was bemoaning this fact to my hairdresser and although I was really impressed with the finished results, I asked her advice for keeping it looking that way. Having been with my hairdresser for many years, she knows there are very few hair products that I really like - most of them tend to flatten my hair even further. She suggested I try Silver Shine shampoo made by Regis, which is specially formulated for coloured hair. At £8.10 for a 300 ml/10.1 fl ozs bottle it was a lot more expensive than I would normally pay for shampoo. However I felt in a good mood having just had my hair done so decided to buy a bottle and give it a try. What the heck, you only live once!
The first thing you notice about this shampoo is the colour. I don't thing there are too many purple shampoos around or if there is, I haven't come across them. However, the colour didn't put me off using it. The product claims to help neutralise brassy and yellow tones on blonde or grey hair. It is also supposed to help promote moisture which combats the dryness associated with highlighted or grey hair.
I only needed only a small amount of shampoo to get a really good lather - about the size of a 10p piece. As already mentioned it is a deep purple colour and is rather thick in texture. As the bottle is a stiff plastic I found I really needed to press quite hard to get the contents out. I usually only use one application of shampoo but I felt with this product that my head hadn't been washed properly. However, after a second application my hair felt clean enough to rinse. I must admit it was at this stage that I felt the shampoo came into it's own. My hair felt as if I had applied conditioner to it, which of course I hadn't. It also felt fuller and not as flat as it usually does when it has just been washed. Once it had been blown dry it had a nice silky feel and had a lovely shine to it.
Although I like this product I doubt whether I would buy it again. It is just too expensive for everyday use, especially in these credit crunch times. The bottle I bought says on the reverse that it is only available in professional salons, which is a distinct disadvantage if you want to nip out and buy some locally. On the plus side, you can recycle the bottle and the product is not tested on animal but I still think it does not justify the high price.
