Sainsbury;s Camomile Shampoo.
Actually i stumbled upon this shampoo quite by mistake really, thinking that it was something else, but then decided to keep it at the check out and give it a try.
The Bottle **********
Comes in a clear see through plastic bottle, and has a light yellowish shampoo which you can also see through too.
On the front of this bottle is a picture of a flower and Sainsbury;s shampoo written its for fair or blonde hair.
This shampoo was 56p and i brought it just to keep in the bathroom for when people come to stay as i liked the look of the bottle and it matches with my new bathroom.
The Smell **********
Bit like a lemony smell hard to describe but not an unpleasant smell.
The Performance **********
Well you don't need to much of this shampoo in your hand, when applied it really lathers up well, and i must admit that it does leave your hair feeling really soft and clean.
It is especially formulated to enhance blond hair, but it didnt really do any thing bad to my darker hair, so i think it is quite a good shampoo, merely from the point of view that it was cheap, and did leave my hair feeling in a very lovely condition.
Directions for use **********
Wet hair, massage a small amount into your hair and work into a lather, rinse thoroughly, and then repeat if required.
Apparently they recommend that you use with their conditioner, i didnt and i must admit that i still found that my hair felt lovely and silky and soft.
It will be great to buy a few of these bottles of shampoo now that i know that it really works well on my hair, and add a few to the stocking fillers that i always start buying around this time of the year in early preparation for christmas, so that i can space out the cost of buying the pressies.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews x.
I'm a bit of a shampoo tart and will just purchase whatever is cheap or use whatever is available in my overflowing supply of free samples and bargain buys. This shampoo was at a relatives house when I stayed over recently so I took full advantage of it being free to me!
A 300ml bottle of Camomile Shampoo is available from Sainsburys stores or www.sainsburys.co.uk for the very reasonable price of 52p. It is provided in a clear plastic bottle which is slightly curved to make it easier to hold with wet hands. It has an opaque flip top lid for ease of use and this opens with ease and closes securely. There is no worries about the shampoo leaking out and I happily let it bob around in the bath once I'd used it.
The shampoo is a light blonde colour and has a lovely scent to it. I'm not entirely sure what Camomile smells like but when I smelt this shampoo it reminded me of old times and being around 18 for some strange reason! It had a very strange effect on me indeed as it brought back lots of memories. It does have a lovely scent to it but I can't quite put my finger on it. The shampoo is quite thick so only a 50p sized dollop is required to produce a good lather to coat my entire bra-strap length hair (yes, that is a scientific measurement!). The lather felt nice and luxurious and I felt that my hair was lovely and clean after being washed. My hair stayed shiny for around 2 days which is not always the case and it had a lovely shine to it.
I believe if you had blonde hair this would work even better as the colour would really agree with your hair in a way that brilliant brunette does for brunettes.
I was very pleased with this shampoo and even though it's not for my hair (brunette) I would consider purchasing it myself and would be even more happy if there was a brunette version which I can't seem to find by searching the website.
I am going to rate this shampoo 4/5 as it was very nice and reasonably priced.
I have been looking for a new shampoo for a little while now, normally I stick with Pantene's Ice-shine, but it isn't always available in the shop I use, and I needed a back up.
After doing a stock up shop at Sainsbury's online, it occurred to me to grab some shampoo while I was there, and I checked out their range of home brands (not extensive I have to say) as I am currently on a budget. - Three months the summer in the USA on a student allowance "hooray! for beans on toast!"
After perusing all my choices, which were all very specific and catered for different types, colours and treatments of hair (I just want nice clean hair please) I chose the Chamomile shampoo, formulated for blonde hair. Since some of my hair is blonde, I thought it would probably be the best choice, because I don't have especially dry, greasy or frizzy hair and I certainly don't want any more volume thanks very much Mr. Sainsbury.
On first appearances the Chamomile shampoo bottle is really quite pleasing, its shaped nicely, fitting easily in your hands, the plastic isn't too slippy, making it easily to keep ahold of when it's soapy and you cant see very well. The design on the front is a stylized white Chamomile flower and the bottle is transparent, so you can see the summery yellow shampoo inside and see how much you have left. I think it's a very good looking product.
I used a couple of times in succession to see what it would do to my hair, and I have to say I am distinctly underwhelmed. It's a shame because the shampoo itself had a lovely herby, grassy smell, very fresh and summery, almost like cut grass, and since I don't like many of the floral or overly perfumed shampoos I thought this could be a really good bet.
After using the Chamomile shampoo my hair got greasier than it usually does, and quicker, I found myself also itching slightly at the hairline of my scalp which was quite uncomfortable, I quite often get this reaction to a new shampoo though, so I didn't think too much of it. Although just after washing and drying, my hair felt very nice and clean, unfortunately it just didn't stay that way for very long, unlike many shampoos I've tried.
I also should mention that unlike it promised, the shampoo didn't really bring out the blonde bits of my hair, but I wasn't really expecting that it would. Good thing about managing expectations ;)
I wouldn't recommend that you rush out and buy this product if you need shampoo, although as with most hair care products what works for some people might not work for
others. I would also recommend you be wary of it if you are prone to a sensitive scalp.
