“ Brand: Sunsilk / Type: Hair Shampoo / What it does: Repairs, „
With my hair being so very long (down to my bum!) it is very prone to
damage, for example, closing the car door on it, sitting on it (yes
I have lol), on top of that blow drying and straightening it, and normal daily
wear and tear.
So I need something to give my poor hair a touch of TLC, which brings me
to my must have essential in my bathroom....
Sunsilk Care and Repair Shampoo
Availability and Price
I brought mine from Tesco's in a 2 for £2.00 offer, and they are running
this offer again at the moment. They normally cost between £1.98 - £2.50
for 200ml which is still great value. You can buy this in most supermarkets, Boots and some chemists.
The shampoo comes in what I would describe as a big tube, it has flat
base where the flip top lid is located and the tube tapers off at the top.
The tube is pastel orange in colour, with Sunsilk written in dark blue
with a shiny silver wavy underline, the words Care and Repair are below this. Shampoo is highlighted in a darker orange block with a round darker orange circle below, with an image of a woman's head and her hair flowing, and the claim "Strengthens and Nourishes Everyday" with lipids.
The back of the bottle has a list of ingredients, some information about
the product, directions, their address and web address.
I think the design is quite simple, yet the colour of the tube makes it stand
out and being a pastel shiny orange, it gives me the impression that the
contents are very silky. Another plus is that it stands on its lid which makes it easier to squeeze out the shampoo and when its is nearly all gone you can smooth down the tube with your finger to get every last drop out.
Massage into wet hair, rinse, repeat if required.
Sunsilk's Care & Repair Shampoo claim to be able to leave your hair, "stronger, healthier and shinier".
I love this shampoo.
To say I'm a fan of the Sunsilk range of hair care products is putting it mildly!
I used to use this every other day, but with Sunsilk having quite a sizeable range of products for different hair types and ones which promote certain effects, I like to mix it up and use lots of different ones.
I now use this every couple of weeks as a treat for my hair along with their Care & Repair leave in conditioner (which I shall review later).
The shampoo consistency is fairly thick, but not overly so (take washing up liquid for example and it is just slightly thicker than that), and it has a white creamy silk appearance that looks quite glittery and it feels like silk.
You don't need loads of it either unless you have super long thick hair like me! Two to three walnut size blobs will lather up fine for most people with short to midlength hair, and it rinses out really easily leaving my hair clean and soft.
The smell is divine, it smells really fresh with a fruity apple and peach twist, and the fragrance lasts for ages even after I have dried and straightened my long locks. When I use this I am always getting compliments from friends and family about how nice my hair smells!
I personally always use conditioner, but for those of you that don't, this will
still leave your hair soft and smelling great.
So does it really leave my hair "stronger, healthier and shinier"?
Before I discovered this shampoo, my hair looked quite dull and was extremely brittle and the only thing that could help me at that time was a trip to the hairdressers, for some intensive, expensive treatments. Thanks to this shampoo I only go to the hairdressers, for a trim now lol. It has really revitalised my hair, I have hardly any split ends and I don't look like a scare crow with straw hair anymore, so yes, for me it has lived up to its claims.
Why not give it a try? It's great value, and great for everyday use or as an occasional treat for your hair.
Sunsilk Care & Repair Shampoo
**WHAT IT DOES**
Sunsilk care & repair shampoo will get your hair clean and takes care of the damage you have given it by replacing the lips making your hair stronger. You will have less brittle and fragile hair and your hair will be healthier and shiner.
It comes in a bright orange tube, which is rather eye-catching. The sunsilk logo is on the front in blue writing with a shiny gold underlining. On the front there is a girls head and she has orange metallic hair. On the back it gives you detailed information on the product in dark blue writing so it's easy and clear to read. The cap is clear and you click it to open and close. To get any shampoo out you have to squeeze the bottle once you have opened the lid. This can be irritating when there is only a little amount of the shampoo left as it is hard to squeeze out. Everything is made out of durable plastic so it is hardwearing and waterproof.

This shampoo contains lipids that help make your hair stronger and less brittle. These lipids are lost through daily wear and tear.
The shampoo itself is pearly white and thick in consistency. There is a moderate smell off the shampoo, which is fresh, and it doesn't really linger in your hair for long after you have washed it.
DIRECTIONS: Wet hair and apply a small blob of the shampoo to your hair and lather. Once you are satisfied that your hair is clean rinse the shampoo completely.
Try not to get the shampoo into your eyes as it may cause irritation. If this does happen rinse your eyes immediately with clean cold water. If irritation persists contact your doctor.
At £1.70 I think this shampoo is good value for money. I think it doesn't strengthen your hair overly much but it will help its condition slightly. It leaves your hair light and bouncy after use. To help your hair you still will have to use a conditioner. It leaves your hair fresh and soft once you have washed your hair. As my hair is in bad condition I need to use a conditioner so my hair is more manageable. If you are on a budget this shampoo is definitely the one I would recommend.
