I love anything girly and am always trying out new beauty and bath products. I have always loved the soap and glory range and really love to try any of their products. One if the ones I have tried recently is this Soap and Glory Hair Supply.
PRICE AND APPEARANCE
It comes in a clear plastic squeezy bottle. It has a pink label across it and looks very typical of all Soap and Glory products. I think it looks very nice and unique but also good quality and expensive. Expensive it is!
This one 250ml bottle cost me £7. Very expensive for conditioner. It does however seem to last ages and is often on offer in boots 3 for 2. Boots also seem to occasionally lower it to £5.50 - £6.
It is available from all boots stores and online.
SO WHAT IS IT?
Hair Supply is a deep nourishing hair conditioner or mask. It can either be used as a quick every day use where it is applied and then rinsed off straight away, or it can be used as more of a mask and applied, left in for a while and then rinsed off. The latter is not for everyday use and more for a less often treatment.
It is very thick and cream coloured. It is so thick it squeezes out very slowly. It takes a while to rub it thoroughly into your hair as it's so thick, especially if like me you have very thick hair.
It smells lovely and very typical of most Soap and Glory products. It is a very strong fragrance. It smells very feminine and quite perfumey and slightly floral. It is a very hard smell to describe but I really like it!
IS IT ANY GOOD?
I'm pretty disappointed with this if I'm honest....
To start with and the first time I used it I thought it was quite good but the more I use it the more I realise it's not so great!
Once it has been applied, I find it is quite difficult to wash out. It is so thick it seems to cling to the hair really well. It takes a lot of rinsing to make sure it's completely out, again I don't know if that's just me with really thick hair.
After I've used this conditioner my hair does feel great, shiny, super soft and smells wonderful. I also notice though that my hair feels quite heavy after I've used this and tends to go greasy pretty quickly.
I guess the main question is would I recommend?
No I don't really think I would. For me, this product isn't good enough to justify spending £7 on a conditioner. It doesn't wash out easily and leaves my hair feeling heavy and not clean for that long.
It does, however, leave my hair smelling S & G fabulous!
If you are a soap and glory fan it might be worth a try but if not I would recommend looking at gettng a cheaper conditioner that works just as well or better and is probably half the price!
3/5 for me as it is a bit of a let down but I still love S & G and still love the fragrance!
Thank you for reading, I hope it was helpful

I got this in a Soap & Glory gift set that I got for my birthday. I've had it a few months and only just got round to using it. I try to use deep conditioning masks once a week and have tried a lot of brands. My favourites are ones that moisturise my hair but without weighing it down. I was a bit reluctant to try this as although I thing Soap&Glory are great at making body products, I wasn't sure if they would be quite as good with hair products, and I usually prefer to stick to trusted hair brands.
It comes in a little 100ml squeezy bottle with the flip lid at the bottom. The bottle is mainly pink including the lid and has an old school image of a girl with big backcombed hair. The writing used it really pretty and the bottle looks cute, girly and old-school,
The conditioner came out feeling really thick and creamy and was a cream/yellow colour. It looked really luxurious and more importantly smelt amazing. Like a flowery smell but with a modern twist. The smell was very similar to the S&G body products, therefore was quite strong so you really do have to like the smell to enjoy using this.
I applied the conditioner just to the ends of my hair as this is where my hair is driest and most in need of a treat. Also I don't like applying it too close to the roots in case if gets greasy looking. I left it on for around 3 minutes in the shower before rinsing it off, making sure I rinsed it out really well. My hair felt quite smooth but no better than when I have used an ordinary conditioner.
Around 5 mins later I towel dried my hair and tried giving it a brush through before letting it dry. Usually when I have used deep conditioners brushing my hair is easier than ever as it tends to smooth out knots, however on this occasion my hair felt really tangled and was difficult to brush, possibly more difficult than when I have just used ordinary conditioner! This really surprised me as the conditioner had felt really moisturising in my hands and I left it on for long enough, but clearly it hadn't penetrated my hair at all.
Once dry my hair just felt normal, it wasn't feeling weighed down which was a relief but at the same time it didn't feel moisturised either, nor did it look any more shiny or healthy. To make matters worse the lovely smell hadn't held in my hair at all and was a distant memory!
I thought I'd try this again to give it another chance and had the same results so I've given up with it now! It is the first and probably last S&G hair product I will use, as much as I love their body products I think it is better to stick to hair specific brands for hair products.
It wasn't what this conditioner did that was wrong, but more what it didn't do! My hair didn't feel any different after using it, nor did it smell any nicer. The only positive I can think of is the lovely smell whilst using, but this definitely doesn't make it worth it. For these reasons I'm giving the product 1 star and wouldn't recommend it.
I love Soap & Glory I have tried almost all the products in the range. For christmas I recieved a gift set which contained a tube of hair supply, I had never purchased this item previously as I am loyal to certain brands of shampoo and conditioner. The tube in my set was a small 50ml travel sized tube. The full size product contains 200ml and costs £6.38 in Boots.
The packaging is retro like all Soap & Glory products.
The conditioner is described as an ultra light gel like formula that conditions without weighing the hair down. It also defrizzes and gives shine and radiance to your hair.
To use the conditioner you wash hair and squeeze out excess water, you then smooth a handful of this conditioner and massage from root to tip. You then leave on for 60 seconds for a daily condition or up to 4 minutes for a more intensive treatment.
The conditioner when it comes out of the tube is yellow, I found it to be quite gloopy. I had a plesant smell which is the same smell as the original pink Soap & Glory products.
After the time had lapsed I rinsed it off as directed, I found that no matter how much I rinsed my hair it still felt like there was a slimy layer on my hair and it felt like I hadn't rinsed all of the conditioner out.
After towel drying my hair I then blow dried as I normally do. Normally when I use a good conditioner I get quite a smooth blow dry and only need to give my hair a quick one over with the straightening irons. However after using this my hair was really puffy and it felt quite greasy. Even after straightening my hair it still looked limp and lifeless. I managed to go a few hours before I had to wash it again.
I was really disappointed with this product, I am so glad I never invested in the full size product. Normally I have really dry hair as it is highlighted regularly and I heat style it daily. It takes a lot to make my hair look greasy as it's so dry!
I would only give this 1 star out of 5 and that is only because it smells so nice!
I generally try to avoid using too much conditioner on my hair but I do like to buy products that I can use from time to time to give my hair a boost and brighten it up. I have been a fan of Soap and Glory products since I received a gift set for Christmas a couple of years ago so took advantage of a 3 for 2 offer in Boots while replenishing my usual shower gel to see how the Hair Supply fared. It usually costs around £7 so I think I would always wait until there was a good saving on before I bought it again.
The Hair Supply comes in a tube with the usual retro style black and white picture and pale pink labelling and lid. As I have said before I do think that the packaging is quite on the twee side but I do think that the products look nice, particularly when you have a collection of them together in the bathroom. I'm not a great fan of tubes for hair products - I think that it is easy to dispense too much product and you always end up with conditioner left over that you don't get to use. In addition to this the top of the tube (the thin part) is quite sharp.
The conditioner itself is quite thick and creamy, it is a pale creamy colour which is slightly iridescent. As I only use the conditioning product as a treat from time to time I do like to slather my hair with it somewhat so apply about two lots of a 50 pence piece size onto my hair. I don't think it is necessary to use this much but as it is saved for my more luxurious moments I prefer to use it this way. The product is thick and covers my hair well - I have quite thick hair but the product maintains its consistency and I can feel it covering all my hair fully.
I really like the smell of the product which is quite floral and it complements the other Soap and Glory products nicely. The conditioner washes out nicely from my hair and leaves it feeling soft immediately. After drying my hair I can feel and see the improvement straight away - it feels fuller and is much shinier without any heaviness. The only issue that I have with using it is that I find my hair does need washing a day or two after use whereas I can usually get away with just washing it twice a week. Also on the times I have used it more frequently the extra benefits I get from the conditioner aren't as noticeable on the following uses.
I think this is a great product to use as a treat from time to time - it gives my hair extra life and shine, smells lovely and is a very pleasant conditioner to use.
A while ago, I ran out of my Soap & Glory Glad Pits deodorant (which is my 'special occasions' deodorant) and decided to stock up when Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on. I got two deodorants, and looked around for something else to try to make up the third item. The item I eventually chose was Hair Supply, an intensive conditioner described as "a super gloss-giving radiance & repair mask treatment for all hair types". My hair is dyed and I dry and straighten it every day, so it is sometimes not in the best condition and I thought that Hair Supply might help. The price was around £6 but I think it has gone up a little recently with the VAT rise.
Hair Supply comes in a clear upside-down tube with a peach-colour flip lid and a peach and black and white label. The picture is of a demented-looking woman and the product is described as an "ultra-lite gel formula [which] hydrates and defrizzes but won't weigh hair down!"
Inside, the product is of a thick creamy consistency and is creamy-yellow in colour. The scent is lovely - it smells rather like the other pink Soap and Glory products, sweet and floral - and the smell lingers on the hair after use.
There are two ways to use this product. One is as a normal conditioner - leave on for 60 seconds for a daily treatment. The other is as a more intensive weekly treatment - for this, you should leave it on for three or four minutes. I've tended to use the product as a weekly treatment but I see no reason, based on my experience, why it shouldn't be used as a daily conditioner though I think it would be better to be careful not too use too much.
My hair is thick - though not too thick - and there is lots of it. It isn't always in the best condition and sometimes feels a bit straw-like and dry. I hoped that this product would make it look smooth and shiny.
After washing my hair, I used a 50p-sized piece of Hair Supply on the ends of my hair (as the ends are the driest part). After leaving it on for the requisite time, I washed it off, then dried and straightened my hair as usual.
I noticed immediately that my hair was harder to style and comb and kept getting tangled in the brush. It also felt very claggy and if it had been coated with a film of product. It wasn't a very nice feeling at all and I hated touching my hair! I could also feel this as I straightened my hair - it seemed to stick together and felt horrible. At the same time the ends felt dry, not moisturised at all!
On the plus side, my hair did look more shiny and smooth and there seemed to be fewer split ends. The effect lasted for a good couple of days, so this product definitely made a difference. I'm not sure why there was such a difference between how my hair felt and how it looked, but there certainly was!
I don't think I will be buying this product again, as it feels so horrible on my hair. It's the only Soap and Glory product I've tried so far that I haven't loved. It's quite expensive, which I normally don't mind as I think Soap and Glory products are normally worth it, but I would resent paying full price for this.
On the other hand, I will carry on using this product until it is used up, as it does make my hair look better, if I can only get over the feel of it on my hair!
Soap and Glory do not test on animals - "only very picky people".
I tend to get a lot of split ends, which can be very annoying. I saw that S&G had a product out called, 'Soap & Glory Hair Supply' that claimed to be 'a super gloss-giving radiance and repair mask treatment for all hair types, which leaves hair smooth and shiny, and coats and controls split ends' I have had a lot of success in the past with S&G products, so i was positive i would not be let down.
I bought the 200ml size of this product from Boots for £6.38. You can also buy it from Harvey Nichols for £6.50. Miniature versions of this product can be bought also, these will probably be best if your a first time buyer.
I just simply adore all Soap & Glory packaging! They always have an old-fashioned look about them, but yet they still manage to be very girly and cute. On the front of this particular product, it has a woman with volumised, short and styled hair. All around this picture it has many slogans and a bit of information about the product in pink, black, silver and white banners. It has the Soap & Glory logo at the bottom. The 200ml is fairly big, and in a paint-like bottle container, which you squeeze and the product comes out. The lid is located at the bottom and is a light pink colour. You flick open the hinged lid to reveal the hole where the product exits the bottle. The bottle itself is a clear container so you can see the creamy/yellow product inside. I find that transparent bottles are very handy as you know when your nearing the end of you product, and when you'll need to refill it. On the back it has the instructions, cautions, a contact address and the ingredients. The container is recyclable, and the product can be kept for up to 24 months.
The product itself is very creamy and silky. It's a creamy/yellow colour, which, in the bottle, looks quite like hair wax. It has that distinctive, S&G smell which is just to die for! Soap & glory products are never tested on animals, so if you believe in animal welfare, like myself, this product will be worth considering. The Ultra-lite gel formula hydrates and de-frizzes your hair, but won't weigh it down. This product is a mask treatment for all hair types, so anyone can buy it and see results.
The application is fairly simply. All you do is after shampooing, squeeze the excess water from your hair then apply a handful of the product, massaging from roots to tips. You leave on for 60 seconds for a daily smooth, or leave on for 3-4 minutes for a more intensive weekly treatment. Rinse well after use. Although be careful not to get the product in your eyes. If eye contact does occur, rinse thoroughly with cold water. This can be time consuming, but i assure you it's worth it!
I could definitely feel a difference in my hair- It had volume, was smooth, shiny and had a lot less visible split ends. It could also be styled with much ease and the style continued to stay in my hair throughout the day- much longer than what it would have if i hadn't used the product.
It can be rather time consuming to apply.
I think this product when used correctly, can produce great results. I would not use this as a daily conditioner as it's time consuming when I'm relatively busy and on the go a lot of the time, although the 200ml does look like it would last a good few weeks with daily use. I use this conditioner on special occasions and at weekends, rather than weekdays. I would buy again, as i think that with consecutive weekly use, this can provide your hair with a lot of benefits. I would recommend to anyone that's looking to buy a reliable treatment to keep their hair in good condition!
So I picked this conditioner up in boots when I was first trying out the soap and glory range and was intrigued when it said it was a hair mask, I use face masks a lot so thought I'll try a hair mask.
What They Say
Super gloss-giving radiance and repair mask treatment for all hair types. Ultra-lite gel formula hydrates and
defrizzes but won't weigh hair down! Leaves hair smooth and shiny, coats and controls spilt ends!
What I Say
As I read the back I was delighted to find out that it's very simple you just have to squeeze the water out of your hair and massage in, no faffing about or anything. You can use as a conditioner or a weekly hair mask for a more intensive treatment.
As I spread the treatment over my hair I found that it was quite oily and then I had a sudden thought of 'Oh gosh, this is never going to come out.' I got to rinsing it out after using it as a hair mask for 5 minutes and it washed out quite easily, my hair felt tangle free and soft.
The effects of the treatment lasted about 3 days which is about right for me, this product comes in a 200ml and a travel size 50ml. The 200ml is £6.00 which to be honest is rather expensive for a conditioner especially if you have long hair and have to use a lot as a hair mask. I would never use this as a day to day conditioner it is just too rich but as a hair mask it is very good. I left my hair soft, silky and tangle-free !
~ More Soap & Gory than Soap and Glory!~
I have to admit that ever since I first tried out a small tub of Righteous Body Butter and was smitten by its soft pink marsh mallow fragranced creamyness, I have been a fan of near enough anything and everything that Soap & Glory produce. Of course it goes without saying that when sale time comes around I am often on the look out for Soap & Glory bargains and at xmas I seem to be given my fair share of products and gift sets from the range, so pre xmas time is always a good time to use up the remainder of my existing Soap & Glory goodies.
As I have been trying to make my way through my stash of Soap & Glory products in order to make way for the influx of yummy new products I hope will soon be coming my way, I washed my hair and applied some of the Soap & Glory Hair Supply conditioning mask, that has been hiding away in last years beautiful blockbuster Soap & Glory Hat Box (anyone remember that one?). Having tried and failed to find much to like about the product the last time I used it, I must admit I already had it in my mind that Hair Supply wasn't going to do much for my hair.
~Plenty of Soap & not much Glory!~
The way I used the product this time was to apply a small amount of Hair Supply after having washed my hair and rinsed it twice with a good quality shampoo and warm water. I opened one of the small tubes of Hair Supply from my Hat Box gift this time and after having read the instructions for use again, I applied the product carefully to my hair. Although on the back of the tube it tells you to 'apply a handful' of Hair Supply to your hair, I decided to use the less is more technique today.
The last time I used this product the results were very poor and I had to wash my hair again as soon as I had dried it, to get rid if the remainder of the coating the Hair Supply left all over my hair. The product is meant to be used as a 'gloss giving radiance and repair mask' for all hair types, although I feel that anyone with already slightly grease prone hair will find the product does very little for their hair and may make things worse. My own hair is neither too dry nor too greasy so I assumed that if I applied the product lightly it would work well on my hair and bring it up to a nice glossy shine.
On the previous occasion I used this I washed my hair, applied a little Hair Supply to my hair, then read about 'applying a handful' and decided to apply a little more.....BIG MISTAKE! The effect of this was dreadful and I ended up having to wash my hair again as soon as I had dried it as I found it to be covered in a large amount of horrible greasy feeling film. This time I felt that I knew how much was the right amount to use and I used just a small 50 pence sized blob of Hair Supply which I ran through the ends of my hair at first. I left this in place for no more than 20 seconds before I continued to apply the rest all over the remainder of my hair.
I found the texture of the product to be thick and creamy yet light at the same time when I put a small amount of it onto my hand to use. I liked the soft pinky tone of the product and found it easy to apply to my hair, although it did feel rather clingy when I used it. The fragrance Hair Supply gave off was very nice and it reminded me of the other Soap & Glory pink range of products, with its soft sweet mallow scent that was a good match for many of the other products within the same range.
I made certain to apply the Hair Supply product as evenly as I could, bearing in mind the effect leaving too much Hair Supply on my hair for too long had the last time I used it. I must have only had the product on my whole head of hair for 10 seconds or so after I had coated the ends and I thought that would avoid the problems that I experienced the previous time. I made sure to wash and rinse the product very thoroughly with clean water and towelled my hair dry, ready to blow dry and style it.
~ Soapy & Gory or Mane of Glory??~
When I began to try to comb my hair through, the feeling of my hair being coated with a thin film of the product was once more present and I could still smell the light pink mallow scent that the product left on my hair, which was very pleasing. Once I had switched on the hair dryer and had begun to dry my hair, I found that as my hair dried out it became more and more difficult to get my brush through it. Once my hair was almost completely dry it was almost impossible to to brush through it without the brush becoming entangled in my hair. This never usually happens and I was very displeased with having to fight my way through with the brush to reach the super tangled ends of my over conditioned and film covered hair.
Usually I have rather nice glossy hair when its freshly washed and I find all it really needs is a little anti frizz serum which also adds some extra shine, along with a quick going over with some hair straighteners. Today I was very unimpressed with the results shown by the Hair Supply product I used, as my hair was dry at the ends which resulted in them being tangled and hard to brush through, yet coated and covered in a thin claggy feeling film at the roots. The top part of my hair actually felt like I had rubbed in half a pound of lard and allowed it to warm up a little and it was really very unpleasant indeed.
As I continued trying to style my hair I decided to dispense with my usual anti frizz serum as I felt it wouldn't be of any help. Prior to me using my hair straighteners my normally glossy looking hair looked like I had been dragged through the back of a hedge and then been tumbled in the dryer on an extra hot cycle. If I tell you that I ended up looking like a cross between Brain May on a good hair day and Don King having a bad hair day, that should give you an idea of the effect the Hair Supply product had. It was not a pretty sight and I was not a happy bunny.
My battle with the hair straighteners was no fun at all and my hair was not in the mood to behave and allow itself to become the sleek and shiny mop that I usually end up with. As the top of my hair at the roots felt greasy the straighteners didn't want to close over it and once they reached the super dry ends they kept getting stuck. This meant I had to drag them over my hair harshly to benefit from any form of straightening at all. I found I had to do this to enable me to produce a style that was anything like the normal look I like to see.
~ The final results~
Once my hair was styled and finished I surveyed Hair Supplys handy work and found that surprisingly in spite of the horrid way my hair felt, it actually didn't look all that bad. The greasy feeling I got when I touched the roots of my hair combined with the dry feeling the ends had, was in no way reflected in what my hair looked like. I found that my hair had a good amount of body to it, although it was rather fly away in places and lacked the polished sheen I normally like it to have, it was passable enough. I must admit that even though it didn't look too bad, I was far from happy with how Hair Supply worked on my hair as the filmy layer left on it was very nasty to touch and didn't feel nice at all.
I allowed things to settle and thought I would see what happened after a number of hours to see it things improved. The results I have found are that the filmy layer has reduced a little and feels less greasy than it did. The roots of my hair feel relatively soft, although the ends still feel too dry for my liking. The filmy layer may have reduced to a more comfortable level yet I am still not really very happy with it. I get the feeling that I will probably have to wash and style my hair again tomorrow as I cannot see it being all bouncy and glossy by then which is a shame.
As I have had poor results from this product I feel that I won't be using it again any time soon. I gave the product a number of chances to prove its worth and it has failed to deliver a satisfactory result each time. On the back of the tube of Hair Supply that I have with me now, it does say that the product will 'leave hair smooth and shiny' and try as I might I really cannot agree with that after my fight with the dryer, hairbrush and straighteners again today.
The information on the tube also says that Hair Supply will 'coat and control split ends', as I don't have many split ends I cannot say that I have noticed any great effect there, although I can agree 100% that the product has coated my hair in a horrible filmy layer which I don't like at all. Over all I feel the results that Hair Supply gave me are very poor and this does effect how I intend to rate the product. I feel that as it has not performed as I would have liked and has left my normally glossy hair feeling far worse than it was before using this my rating will be rather low.
As such after considering everything I have experienced when using the product, my rating for Hair Supply is a very low 1 star, which I feel is the most I can give this disappointing hair care product. I haven't waffled on about the packing and presentation here, as I am sure many of us agree that the Soap & Glory kitsch pink retro styling is very cute and pretty and follows a theme that is well known and easy to like. I feel that is the only thing this product has going for it sadly, as it has not worked its magic on my hair. The price of Hair Supply is £6.25 for 200mls from Boots and that is a massive £6.25 more than I am prepared to pay for another tube of it!
Soap and Glory is a beauty brand founded by Marcia (the founder of Bliss). The range includes cosmetics, skincare, bath and body treats and also a perfume.
S&G don't test their products on animals and package their products to appear retro and girly. Each product has its own quirky saying to add to the retro theme.
Soap and Glory Hair Supply is a hair treatment. It is suitable for all hair types. The treatment is classed as being a hair mask which is designed to give gloss to your hair and repair damage such as split ends. It will also leave hair smooth and shiny.
Hair Supply comes in a plastic tube which is transparent. The flip lid is at the bottom of the tube allowing all the treatment to be squeezed out and avoiding wastage.
The design of the tube is retro with an old fashioned lady adorning the front. The tube offers the familiar S&G pink, white and black colouring. The front of the tube has the brand and product name. The back of the tube offers us the blurb, directions for use, ingredients and contact details for S&G.
Hair Supply can be used in 2 ways.
You can use it daily as a normal conditioner. Once you have washed your hair, you should proceed to squeeze out excess water. Apply a handful of Hair Supply from root to tip and allow it 60secs to get to work before thoroughly rinsing.
You can also use this as a weekly conditioning treat. Apply as above but allow it to work for 3-4minutes before rinsing.
===Availability and Price===
Hair Supply comes in a 200ml tube and can be bought from Boots, www.boots.com or Harvey Nichols. It is priced at £6.25 though S&G products can often be found on offer at 3 for 2 or 1/3 off.
A 50ml size is also available in the Soaper Heroes Giftset priced at £12.00. This also includes mini versions of Moisturising Mist, Righteous Butter, Flake Away and Shower Gel.
I am a self confessed Soap and Glory addict! I love the design of their products, the witty comments and the scent of the majority of the products. I received a few S&G giftsets between Christmas last year and my birthday this March. One of the gift sets was Soaper Heroes and this is how I came to own the Hair Supply. I now have a few 50ml tubes.
My hair is long, thick and very dry. Shampoo allows it to be clean but I need something extra to add moisture and softness otherwise it is a frizzy mess. It has experienced regular hair dyes and heat abuse over the years and now I have split ends and my hair often feels awful.
The tube is ideal, it is see through so I know how much I have left and the lid is at the bottom. The hole inside the lid is a decent size. It allows a reasonable amount to be dispensed without wasting any. So how does this differ from normal, everyday conditioners? Well for one, this requires a bit more work to get it going.
Until recently, I had to wash my hair over the bath with a jug, I now have a shower in my new house so this does speed up the process. After giving my hair a good wash with Pantene, I squeeze as much water out my hair as possible. This does take time and I only use this at night now as I simply can't afford to spend as much time on my hair in the mornings.
As I squeeze the Hair Supply out the tube, I am impressed by the consistency. The treatment is creamy and has an off white, shiny appearance which is very like the Clarifying Shower Gel. The scent is strong and simply perfect. It is very Soap and Glory offering a sweet and fruity combination along with something deep and warm underlying waiting to seep through.
As I start to apply this to my hair, I noticed that it doesn't seem to spread as well as normal conditioner. I suppose this to be expected considering it is a mask. I do have to use a good amount to cover my long hair. The treatment appears to stick to my hair as I coat it. It certainly feels the way a mask should and sits on my hair as I work my fingers through it. It is slightly sticky and I knew I would have to give it a good rinse which wasn't ideal when I didn't have a shower!
I have used this as a daily fix and due to the amount required to cover my hair, I couldn't afford to do this all the time. After leaving it on for around a minute, I found it didn't provide amazing results. It washed out fairly well and didn't take too much effort with my smoothing my hair out as I washed it. The results were soft and very lightly scented hair but not much else. This did put me off using this the first time around but I decided to allow it another chance.
Most recently, I have been using Hair Supply as a weekly mask. After washing my hair and squeezing the water out, I apply more mask ensuring I cover my whole hair. I leave it on for around 5minutes which is more than recommended and just get washed whilst it is working through my strands. I found that the scent of the mask intensified during the time it was on my hair and was delicious. This is one of my favourite scents and one I appreciate with all my S&G products.
When it came to washing the mask off, it did take a while even with the shower. I always sweep my hands through my hair whilst I rinse and was impressed by how soft and tangle free my hair had become. The slightly sticky mask washed off well and didn't leave any residue but did leave that gorgeous fruity and sweet scent I have come to love. Once the mask had fully washed out, my hair was easy to brush through. I allow my hair to dry naturally now as I don't feel right using expensive treatments and then applying direct heat and ruining it all! During the drying process, my hair remained soft and had a light, fluffy feel about it which I have never noticed with other treatments. It remained tangle free and the scent was still detectable the next morning which meant I was seen sniffing the ends of my hair. The longer the scent remained on my hair, the deeper it became. It gradually changed from the fruity and sweet aroma to a warm and almost vanilla like scent before fading away..delectable in everyway possible.
By allowing the treatment 5minutes to work, it fully conditioner my wrecked hair and added a much needed boost to it. I have noticed an improvement in the condition of my split ends and my hair doesn't feel as frizzy or dry anymore which is a big bonus for me. It is also the most stunning scent I have ever had the pleasure of applying to my hair. I feel the mask provides deep nourishment and repair for my hair and goes further into the roots than a regular conditioner. It may take longer to apply but the results are impressive so it is worth treating your hair.
A tube of Hair Supply may last a long time if you have short or thinned out hair but for me, it doesn't last long. I have used up several 50ml tubes and find that one 50ml tube only allows me 2-3 applications. This is the my reason behind only using this once a week as £6.25 for 200ml is alot to pay considering you can pick up huge bottles of conditioner for £1.00. i feel it is worth it for an intensive treatment but I would recommend purchasing when on offer.
Although this is suitable for all hair types, not everyone is the same and this may not suit everyone so if you can get hold of a travel size tube then try before you buy the larger size. I recomment this Hair Supply product.
Thanks for reading :)
I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory products. One of my regular products I use is their Hair supply product which is a hair mask.
The Hair supply comes in a plastic tube with a pink plastic clip lid which helps to stand the bottle up flat so as you can get the remainder of the mask so you do not waste any. The directions and ingredients are on the back of the tube as it does not come in a box.
I have my hair highlighted which dries my hair out which then needs a moisture boost to make is soft and shiny again. I have never been able to use conditioner on my hair as it make my hair greasy, even when only using a small amount, but this hair mask worked a treat for me giving me everthing a conditioner can offer me and more..
I applied it to my hair after I had shampooed it, using about a two pence piece size and massage it into my hair. On the directions on the back of the squeezy plastic tube it tells you to leave it on 3-4minutes for an intensive treatment which is roughly the amount of time I leave it on for then shower off.
You can also just use it as a quick mini tratment which is ideal when you are just having a quick shower by leaving it on for a minute.
As I shower off the mask I can feel how glossy and smooth my hair feels immediately. When it comes to brushing my hair there are no knots.
I feel the treatent masks effects last for roughly 3 days which is convieniant for me as that is how often I wash my hair.
This product comes in a 200ml tube and also a 50ml travel size which I took on holiday with me for the weekend. I left it on whilst I was in the sun and it helped to prevent my hair from fading and made it shine for the evening. I find with the travel size bottles these last me a month and I use them twice a week so in my opinion that is good for a mask. This product is usually in boots on their 3 for the price of 2 range.
Overall I would recommend this product as it smells good leaves you hair feeling soft shiny and healthy without making it greasy looking. I feel the only thing that may put people off of buying this product is the price which is £6.00 for 200ml so maybe get it when it is on the 3 for 2 so in theory it is a gift!!!
As I keep my hair short, it tends to be in fairly good condition most of the time. I never use a hair dryer or straighteners, but I do colour it every 6 weeks, so it can occasionally become quite dry. I had never thought of using a hair mask before, as they often claim to work wonders for split ends, which is something I never get. However, for my birthday, I received a big box of Soap & Glory products, and a 50 ml tube of Hair Supply was included in one of the gift sets. I had already read a few negative reviews for this product, so had fairly low expectations, but it was a gift that I was very happy to receive as I do love the Soap & Glory range, and am always willing to try new products.
~~ Packaging & Price ~~
Hair Supply usually comes in a 200 ml tube priced at £6.00, but Boots have regular special offers on the S&G range offering 1/3 off the normal price of many of the products, making Hair Supply £4.00 during these times.
The product comes in a transparent squeezy tube which stands on its pink flip-top lid. The label displays the usual S&G black and white retro image; this time of a woman with unruly and damaged looking locks. The product is described as being a 'Gloss-giving radiance & repair mask for all hair types'.
~~ My experience ~~
Following the directions on the tube, I shampooed my hair, squeezed out the excess water, and applied a 50p sized dollop of Hair Supply (ok, it says a handful, but I don't have that much hair). I massaged it from roots to tips, and chose to leave it on for around 3 minutes. It is recommended that you leave it on for 60 seconds for a daily smooth, or 3-4 minutes for 'a more intensive weekly treatment'. I could tell instantly that it had quite a strong scent, but I really liked it.
After rinsing, my hair felt silky smooth, but as it dried, it did feel a little heavy, and seemed to be coated in a chalky, slightly sticky film. I knew straight away that this product obviously requires far more thorough rinsing than most conditioners, so I made a mental note for next time.
When you've got short hair, it's obviously difficult to know what your hair smells like, but with this product, whenever I turned my head I caught a whiff of the stuff, and this seemed to last all day. It has a gorgeous, sweet fragrance, very much like the S&G 'Righteous Butter' and 'Hand Food' scents, but with something extra.
My hair tends to stick out in all directions, and go quite fluffy if I just leave it to dry without applying any products. I normally then use a wax to tame and style it, but after using Hair Supply, my hair dried much more textured and less fluffy, requiring less styling (more normal-looking than usual!).
The tube is made from quite thick, stiff plastic, which made it difficult to squeeze the product out when there wasn't much left. I ended up snipping the tube open to get one last use out of it, which I suppose proves just how much I like this stuff!
~~ Conclusion ~~
I love it. I'm not sure I'd pay £6.00 for it though; I think I would only buy it when it's on one of those 'save 1/3' offers for £4, as this is still quite a high price for a conditioner (which is effectively how I would be using it). Having said that, it does tend to last longer than regular conditioners when used daily, as the required dollop size is much smaller. As an intensive hair mask, I would say it's not that expensive considering how long it would last.
It adds a bit of weight to my hair, and fine, fluffy hair such as mine does tend to need it. Perhaps this would be a drawback for those with thick or greasy hair types. Of course, those with long, thick hair could apply it only to the ends rather than including the roots.
Overall, what I love most about this product is the smell. It leaves my hair smelling lovely, and it lingers for much longer than any other conditioner I have ever used. I wouldn't say it works wonders for the condition of my hair, but it does beat my usual conditioner in terms of taming frizz and reducing fluffiness.
Recommended...... but rinse well!
Soap & Glory's Hair Supply has mixed reviews, I know, but I genuinely like this product for two simple reasons:
1-It restores moisture to my hair without weighing it down
2-It smells amazing and lasts all day!
Normally I just have to look at a hair mask and my hair goes as flat as a pancake for at least a couple of days, and in most cases I would rather my hair be dry than lank and lifeless. But this one is different, it allows me to keep my hair soft and moisturised as well as keeping the beloved volume.
After shampooing, towel dry your hair to remove the majority of the moisture (the more damp your hair is, the more it will dilute the treatment). Apply roughly the size of a fifty pence piece, depending on the length and thickness of your hair. Work the product through your hair from root to tip, leave on for one minute for daily use or three-four minutes for an intensive weekly treatment.
The most important thing is to rinse very well, I normally do this for about five minutes until my hair squeaks. Although I do like this product, the only downside is that it can make your hair quite sticky if not rinsed well enough, which can be quite time consuming.
Soap & Glory products are avaliable at larger boots stores, boots.com and also Harvey Nichols. A 350ml bottle is avaliable for £6.00, which is quite good value for money.
The result leaves hair very soft, shiny and maintains volume. Hair Supply also helps to control split ends and reduces their apperance (which is always nice).
The consistency is that of a cream/gel so I wouldn't recommend to someone with oily hair,as I can image it may cause the roots to become quite greasy. A solution to this, however, is to apply from mid-lengths to ends, avoiding the root area. Other than that, the product is suitable for all hair types.
I would recommend to try this product, especially those who suffer the same problem as me with hair repair masks.
I received a Soap and Glory gift set for christmas and the hair supply was one of the items in this set. Every other Soap ad Glory product I have tried I have loved so I was expecting this to be just as good, however I was very disappointed.
The packaging is a clear plastic tube with a pink flip down lid. The tube has the directions for use, warnings, ingredients etc on the back and on the front there is a picture of a good looking girl with healthy looking hair and the name of the product- hair supply.
After shampooing my hair with my usual shampoo, I squeezed the excess water from my hair (like it says to do in the instructions) and applied a splodge of hair supply. I had run out of conditioner so thought I would use this as a daily product so like it says I left it on for a minute. If you want to use weekly as a treatment then it says to leave on the hair for 3-4 minutes. The smell is lovely, the usual feminine soap and glory smell, so at first I was very happy. I rinsed the hair supply out well. During and after rinsing I could feel that it hadn't left my hair as smooth as my usual conditioner, it actually felt a bit dried out, even though my hair was wet (if that makes sense), it just didn't feel silky like it usually does after applying and rinsing conditioner.
I left my hair for a bit to dry naturally and then finished it off with a hair dryer, like I usually do when I have time. I found that once I had dried my hair it actually looked ok and quite volumed BUT it felt horrible. It felt very dry and as if there was a coating of something over it that felt horrible to touch. I was really disappointed and I hate wasting products but after using it a couple of times (I gave it a second chance) I just can't bring myself to use it again.
Like I said I received this as a present so didn't buy it myself but after having a look at Boots website, you can buy a 200ml tube for £6. A bit pricey I think but I would be happy to spend this much on a good quality conditioner/ hair mask, unfortunately this isn't one (well in my opinion anyway).
HAIR SUPPLY is described as a 2 in 1 product; it can be used as a deep conditioning treatment & in place of your regular conditioner.
I deep condition once a week to give my frizzy, permed (big mistake) and colored hair a boost, plus use in place of my usual conditioner when my hair looks dull.
HAIR SUPPLY moisturizes my hair, but doesn't weigh it down & my hair doesn't look lank or greasy, like other masks make it look. When I comb out the tangles after use much less of my hair snaps & there are fewer knots.
Plus my hair has no frizz, is smooth to the touch & when I pull a broken strand between my fingers it has elasticity to it, instead of snapping straight away like it used to.
Please bear in mind that my hair is dry and frizz prone. My sister has also used this, but didn't notice any real differance to her hair, so I would hesitate to recommend this to those with oilier hair.
The packaging is cute & the smell is divine; sugared peach.
The price is no worse then for similar products [£6]. The tube is 200ml, if you have really long hair it won't last long, but even so, I was impressed by the price versus the results.
As most of those who read my reviews will know I am a lover of Soap and Glory products, and this one is no exception to that love. Hair Supply is a smoothing, softening hair treatment, and it really is some proper good stuff.
It comes in a tube, which has a black and white picture of a woman with nice hair on it, and also has Hair Supply printed on it, as well a few other words, and the tube is pink and clear. The Soap and Glory logo is also printed on it too. The Soap and Glory range is only available in Boots stores, and this product costs around £5 for a large tube which I find lasts for a couple of months, even though I use this once a week.
The actual product inside the tube is sort of a beigey color, and it smells lovely. Has a nice thick texture, but it is not so thick that you can't do anything with it. A small blob spreads quite far through my hair, and I have quite thick, long hair (with the extensions in lol!) I usually leave the product on my hair for about 5 minutes, to make sure it proper soaks in, even though the tube says to leave for 1 - 2 minutes. It rinses really easily too, which is always a bonus, no one wants to scrub their scalp off to remove a hair product!
After use, my hair is always lovely and soft, smooth and frizz free, it looks amazing! The smell usually lasts a couple of days, so my hair smells quite nice and fresh even the next day after washing. It never weighs my hair down, yet still makes sure there is no frizz or fly away hairs, and it does not dry my hair out either!
I recommend this product to everyone (with hair!) as it really does work wonders and it smells great too. There really is nothing more you could ask from this product, and it is a bargain price available on the highstreet or on www.boots.com
