“ Brand: Schwarzkopf / Type: Hair Shampoo „
If possible I like to change my shampoos as I once read that you hair needs a change once in a while (am still trying to finish my huge bottle of Tresemme) so went on the lookout for a different and slightly more interesting shampoo which suited my budget.
I found the generous 400ml bottle in Home Bargains for just under a pound and decided to give it a go because it is for coloured hair claiming to 'prolong colour intensity' and having yoghurt protein and extract of red berries which sounded rather interesting.
My bottle is slightly different to the one pictured in that the lid is at the top although it is still a flip top one which is easy to use. As soon as you open it the strong smell of berries hits you and the shampoo itself is a fairly thick white creamy consistency which means a little goes a long way. I use about a 50p size to wash my medium length bobbed hair but I really do not need this amount - it is just habit when using slightly less thick shampoos. Despite it being a thicker shampoo than many I have used it does rinse out easily and the smell lasts for a good few hours after my hair has dried.
On the reverse of the bottle Schwarzkoph have printed details which I can actually read (!) because the print is navy blue (on pink) and is of a good size. This may not be a big deal to many people but I have bought so many products lately that are in miniscule print and in so many languages that I give up knowing how to use them and having no idea about ingredients. Here we have directions for use, for best results.., for further information...the benefits ... and a clear list of ingredients including yoghurt, glycerin, fruit extract as well as the (inevitable) chemical stuff.
I have been using this bottle on and off for a good few months now and have used it more during the latest hot spell because I thought my hair needed a bit more of a treat. I would buy it again because it seems to add a little more volume, my hair looks healthy and maybe a tad more shiny and certainly smells good.
am now a recent convert o the delights of Schwarzkopf Supersoft Yogurt & Red Berries Smoothie Shampoo. I bought this rather large (400ml) plastic bottle of shampoo, with a flip top lid, from the new branch of Wilkinsons which has just opened up near to where we live. This huge sized bottle set me back a mere 69p. I am guessing it might be old stock and they just want to be rid of them, but I couldn't resist buying a bottle to see what its like. I do confess to opening the bottle whilst in the shop just to have a little sniff and I was immediately bowled over by the really luscious smell of ripe fruity berries. It also smelled creamy at the same time. I knew I was going to love this shampoo before I had even tried it out - if only for the smell alone!
I decided to buy this particular shampoo as it also states on the bottle that it's suitable for those with coloured hair as it contains extract of red berries, together with a UV filter, which is designed to moisturise the hair, , protect the hair from harmful UV rays, and also encourage the hair to hold onto its colour for longer, so there is less chance of fading. As I have started to colour my hair over the past year or so, I thought this might be suitable for my own hair type. I have my hair coloured (or lightened) approximately ever six to eight weeks, but by the time I get to week four, I usually start to notice that the hair doesn't look as bright any more and appears to lack luster. As I had only just had my hair touched up a week or so previously, I thought this was probably going to t be the best time to use a shampoo which made claims about prolonging the life of my colour. The extract of red berries, together with the added yogurt, also claimed to add protein to my hair, and help restore shine and hydration at the same time. Big claims for only 69p!
As the bottle is 400ml in size, obviously it's fairly chunky, and not the easiest bottle to stand upright whilst in the shower. It's also fairly heavy and prone to toppling over a bit, as the though the bottle is tall, it is also rather thin at the same time and so it doesn't balance itself well, especially under wet conditions. I have used this shampoo lots of times now (and so have my husband daughter). We all love the rich ripe juicy smell of the berry and yogurt combination.
Consistency-wise however, this shampoo was a bit of a let down for me. I found it to be rather runny and it dribbles easily out of my hand whilst I try to apply it to my wet hair. I was also rather surprised by the colour, however, as it's not pink, as you might expect, but it's a pearly vanilla white. Though thin and dribbly in consistency, it does lather exceptionally well and creates a massive amount of foam and bubbles. It's really rather impressive, in that respect. The shampoo rinses off well and afterwards my hair is left feeling so unbelievably soft, untangled, shiny and much more manageable. I also use the yogurt and red berry smoothie conditioner after I have washed with this shampoo and the fragrance that is left in my hair after I have dried it, is simply gorgeous. It lasts for ages.
I do feel that my hair s in better condition lately and it's most definitely more hydrated and softer to touch. My hair is easier to manage and though this shampoo claims to protect my colour from harmful UV rays, obviously I have no way of telling if this is the case or not, but I'm happy with the fantastic results it has given me so far, nevertheless - especially for such a piddlly price.
I am unsure of this shampoo is still widely available in supermarkets, as I don't think I have seen it anywhere other than Wilkinson's, and as I say, I think it must be old stock. If you do come across it, however, buy some, especially if your hair is coloured and you love the smell of a powerful fruity shampoo.
As a student, I am always on the look out for how to keep my long, curly, difficult to keep hair in a manageable condition without spending a fortune on salon products. I first found this in poundland, which is always a first port of call for a student! At £1 for 400ml, it is an absolute steal - and it is much better than a lot of the shampoo in poundland.
The problem I often have with cheaper shampoo is that because it seems so watery and not creamy enough, I feel like I am using about half the bottle every time I wash my hair. I find this shampoo lasts much longer than other products of a similar price, although it doesn't really compare to the more expensive products.
This has a delicious fruity smell that leaves your hair smelling beautiful all day. I found it leaving my hair softer and bouncier than other cheaper shampoo. Although for coloured hair, I can't say how it helps with this, as my hair is not coloured, but it definitely helps to stop my hair drying out and leaves it feeling soft and nourished.
To any other students, or to other people not in a position to be able to spend a fortune on salon hair products, I would definitely recommend this, and at £1 for 400ml, it is definitely worth a try for anyone!
