Disadvantages: It's a little runny but once you get to grips with that fact you know how much to use
I always buy my own shampoo and conditioner. I have my personal favourites and I have a good idea of what works best on my hair. However I decided to have a financial cut back recently. I worked out how much my outgoings are on my personal upkeep and nearly fainted! There are certain things I can't cut back on as I'm the only to use them in my household but shampoo and conditioner are things my Mum always puts for family use in the bathroom so I thought right I'd try them out to see what they were like and to save some pennies.
Clear 300ml bottle with frosted flip top lid to the top of the bottle. On the front there is a clear label over the bottle and on that in small white writing I'm told it's Sainsbury's. Under that there is a like a green circle with a white picture on it although for the life of me I can't tell you what the picture is meant to be! Under that I'm told it's Tea tree Shampoo for all hair types. On the back of the bottle all in small white writing still I'm told what it is, directions for use, warnings, ingredients, customer care details and told Sainsburys are against animal testing and a bar code is on there as well. The packaging just looks a bit cheap to be honest and the white writing is fine to see (though a bit on the small side) when the liquid is in the bottle. When no product is in the bottle or your using some you can barely read it (I have good eyesight!)
About The Product....
Sainsbury's tea tree shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp for added shine and vitality. Specially formulated for all hair types.
Directions For Use....
Wet hair. Massage a small amount of shampoo into your hair and work into a lather. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if required. For best results, use with Sainsbury's tea tree conditioner.
The first thing that really put me off was how runny this product was. I tipped the bottle upside down and the bright green liquid flew out the bottle into my hands almost dripping everywhere. I was off put to say the least! However that was the only negative point about this shampoo. About the size of a 10p is well enough of the product to use on just below shoulder length hair. It lathers up quickly and into lots of white bubbles. The smell is really minty and you can definitely smell tea tree. It's very fresh and although strong doesn't tingle on the hair or scalp and doesn't make eyes run (I have really sensitive eyes). I always lather, rinse and repeat and the one thing I really felt is that it didn't dry my hair out. After using it, it rinsed out quickly and without much effort.
Hair felt soft and conditioned and had no tangles. Of course I always follow up with a seperate conditioner (in this case I have the corresponding one) so I can only tell you about my hair up until this point. Hair felt clean but as I said earlier had no tingle or anything and the smell was lovely!
Am I impressed? For the price of 54p a bottle you bet ya bottom dollar I am! The results were no better of less impressive than using alot of far more expensive shampoos out there. It cleans and freshens hair, doesn't make it go greasy or dry and I shall buy it again and again! Shocked? I am it's so worth a go, suitable for any hair type and because of the fragrance is definitely unisex! Really there are no negatives it's a great everyday cleaning, fresh shampoo that does a great job.

Summary: 54p? Is it worth not trying?
