Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo
Advantages: scent lasts on hair
Disadvantages: expensive, there are cheaper products available that will do a better job
Being a fan of Soap and Glory as I know many of my fellow reviewers are also, I was very excited to try the glad hair day shampoo. Usually I wouldn't spend this much on shampoo, a staggering £5.00 plus, but after having such great results from products in the body range from Soap and Glory I thought it would be worth the extra expense.
I absolutely love the packaging that Soap and Glory use with their products. The girly pink and vintage photographs I find give their products that extra bit of style that make you want to purchase them and of course make them excellent choices for gifts.
The packaging for glad hair day is no different. The top-down tube has a woman on the front washing her hair in the sink with a big grin on her face, she might be glad to use glad hair day but I have to say I have to disagree, we will come onto that later.
I like the fact that the tube stands on its head allowing the product to sink to the bottom making it easier to dispense however the fact that you cannot see how much product is left in the tube is a bit of a nuisance.
--What it claims to do--
Soap and Glory state that this is an ultra-shine daily super shampoo which helps to give hair extra gloss and smoothness as well as repair and strengthen hair. I thought to myself that it was definitely worth paying extra for a "super" shampoo.
You are also informed on the front of the tube that the shampoo is suitable for all hair types including highlighted and heat processed hair.
After purchasing the product I was very eager to try it out and couldn't wait to finish my previous bottle of shampoo and went straight onto this.
As I squeezed the bottle I noticed it was very easy to release and that just enough came out so it wouldn't be wasted.
The shampoo itself is a light pink colour and is of a fairly good consistence. I have used shampoos in the past that have been much thicker and much thinner so the glad hair day shampoo is fairly average in this sense.
On the front of the tube you are informed that the shampoo contains raspberry and fruit vinegar. As the product was released the scent of raspberry was very evident however it did smell artificial.
I began to massage the product into my hair and found that only a small amount was needed to create a sufficient lather to cover all of my hair.
The lather itself felt quite soft and as I massaged the product into my hair the shower was filled with the scent which is lovely. However, despite the lather feeling soft I noticed that my hair felt quite dry especially at the ends. I thought perhaps I hadn't used enough shampoo so tried again but with the same result.
The product washed out of my hair easily but I had to follow this procedure using a good conditioner as I have fine hair and if it gets dry it is quite noticeable.
What I do like about this shampoo is that you can still smell it on your hair even a day after using it.
What I don't like about this shampoo is that I didn't notice any major differences to my hair in the areas that Soap and Glory said that this shampoo would help with: gloss, smooth, repair and strengthen.
I have to say that this is an average shampoo with average results. I will continue to use the product that is left however I think that similar results or better can be achieved with cheaper products that are available.
Summary: An expensive product that doesn't reach expectations
