“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Hair Shampoo / Hair type: damaged hair „
Honestly, for the price (it yoyos about a bit, but less than £1 a bottle) I didn't expect much for this other than a cheap supermarket own-brand shampoo. The bottle goes on about B5 and hair repair, but I always take such claims with a large pinch of salt and the rather plain white bottle didn't seem to promise much.
I was rather surprised to end up liking the stuff so much. My hair can be quite dry, and after a week of using this stuff my hair felt healthier than it had in a long while (maybe the B5 working?). It obeyed me more, not needing its usual morning beating with a hairbrush to look somewhat presentable. The smell isn't very distinctive but honestly I found that an advantage - it meant my husband would use it as well, which he won't when I buy fruity or floral shampoos.
One huge disadvantage - it's a Tesco own-brand so you're relying on Tesco to buy it. Fine.. except it's sometimes out of stock. I wish Tesco would make sure this was consistently on the shelves as this is a seriously good shampoo.
*All About Shine Shampoo Pro-vitamin B5 for dry/damaged hair*
I purchased this shampoo with matching conditioner when I had run out and was short of money. They cost about £1.50 for the two, which is a lot cheaper than other brands.
The shampoo and conditioner look very similar, so I always have to check closely to make sure I use them in the right order! They come in a mainly white, plastic container, and contain 300ml each. The flip-lid is easy to open and close, and the bottle is curved so easy to hold with wet hands.
This shampoo doesn't have any particular scent, it just smells like a soapy clean thing! I do like my hair to smell after washing, but this doesnt make it smell of anything really. The shampoo is white in colour, not too thick or thin, and lathers nicely. It is a basic shampoo which does the job.
I have not noticed any difference in my hair, with regards to the supposed strengthening properties, but it does leave my hair feeling clean and soft. My hair is no shinier than when using other shampoos. A bottle has lasted a while, as I don't seem to need to use too much of it at a time, making it a good value shampoo.
I award 4/5 stars as this shampoo is cheap, cleans my hair well, but is nothing fancy. Recommended to anyone on a budget, but there are definitely better shampoos to be had.
I recently tried this shampoo after a friend recommended to me, its a Tesco own brand shampoo and costs 75p for a 300ml bottle. The Pro-Vitamins B5 Shampoo I have is for Dry/Damaged hair and as my hair is highlighted with bleach and straightened on a daily basis it seemed a good choice.
The shampoo is sold in a white plastic bottle with a simple flip top lid. The label on the front of the bottle is also white and has the Tesco logo written along the top in blue and pro-vitamin B5 shampoo is written down the front in blue and silver. The bottle also tells us that this is for dry and damaged hair.
The back of the label gives all the usual information you would expect to find such as instructions for use, warnings and ingredients, these are repeated in several languages.
The shampoo is pearly white in colour and has the consistency of a lotion. It smells lovely, quite fruity and really fresh.
Directions For Use
These are standard for this type of product, massage into damp hair and the scalp, rinse and repeat if you need to.
Once again standard for shampoo, avoid contact with eyes and if this does occur rinse with plenty of clean water.
I used the shampoo as the instructions advised, I put a 50p sized blob in my hands and massaged it into my wet hair, the shampoo lathered up quickly and smelt lovely, the lather was really thick and creamy, I was very impressed considering what I had actually paid for the shampoo. I rinsed the lather from my hair with no problems and conditioned my hair as normal.
Once dried and straightened my hair felt soft and clean, the nice fragrance of the shampoo had disappeared but this was no problem for me, I don't like anything to clash with my perfume. I was pleased with how my hair felt and looked and was glad my friend had told me about it, however a couple of days later I wasn't quite so pleased. My hair was lank and feeling a bit greasy, although I would be washing my hair again by now it doesn't usually look or feel like it needs washing I just feel happier doing it but with the pro-vitamin B5 shampoo I would need to wash my hair every day which just isn't practical for me.
All in all I was disappointed with this shampoo from Tesco, it was lovely whilst I was using it but it just didn't suit my hair. I wont be finishing the bottle I will pass it on to my friend, and I definitely wont be buying it again.
I've been spending a fortune on salon shampoos and tried this one, it's pearly in texture which I always looks for as it reallly does make your hair shine, - and this one really delivers without making hair lank or greasy and at 77p a real bargain!, - I would recommend for dull or thick coarse hair that tends to frizz, use with condiotioner, - brilliant!
It's the All about shine Pro Vitamin CONDITIONER which I have used.
I don't have one bad thing to say about this conditioner, it is by far my favourite! I love the smell... the price.. and certainly the results!
I purchased this conditioner from Tesco because it was cheap.. I don't remember the exact price im afraid!
It had been in my bathroom for a few weeks before I used it. This was because I had recently dyed my hair and so I was religiously using hair products made for coloured and damaged hair! It wasn't until I ran out of my conditioner that I turned to using the Pro Vitamin conditioner.
The smell; ....
This conditioner smells very strongly of scented soap however it isn't an unpleasant smell.
The container; ....
This conditioner comes in a white reasonably sized bottle of 300ml... although I wish the bottle size was bigger as I've ran out recently! The design is pretty plain and doesn't really sell the product very well....it is advertised as being for dry/damaged hair.
So after running out of my conditioner for coloured and damaged hair, I turned to using this pro vitamin product. I was a little unfair to this product as I was expecting it to either give me sloppy greacy hair, dandruff, or have no effect!
I couldn't have been more wrong! My first impressions of the product was that it looked and smelt of good quality. The opening hole isn't too large so a fair amount is given out with a little pressure on the bottle without it splurting out a large silly amount!
The conditioner feels great on your hands and the feeling continues onto your hair. It's almost like magic the way this product works!
It turns my hair from dull to silk in seconds!
Only a little amount is needed, massaged into the hair and washed out.
Upon first use, I expected the silk feeling to wash out with the rinse but this didn't happen.
When rinsing, I actualy thought the conditioner wasn't washing out properly and it took me a good few minutes to realise I had rinsed out all of the conditioner and what I was feeling was infact my lovely silky hair!
I most deffinately recommend this condition to anybody! Dry hair or not, this conditioner is absolutely amazing! The price tops of this product great! I have just ran out of my first bottle of this conditioner and I will soon be running to my local Tesco store to buy a few more bottles to last me! I will also be trying the shampoo in this product!
Although with some products I am very brand loyal others such as shampoo I like to chop and change and try something new. Always on the look out for a bargain, my latest new product to try was a shampoo from Tesco from their "All About Shine" range.
The shampoo is the Pro-Vitamin B5 shampoo and is the one designed for dry and damaged hair. My hair isn't particularly damaged but I do get it highlighted and use straighteners most days so it has a tendency to be a bit dry at the ends and is at risk of damage so I like to try and keep it in tip top condition. Tesco says that the shampoo has been specially formulated to cleanse your hair and has pro-vitamin B5 to strengthen your hair from root to tip.
The shampoo comes in a 300ml plastic bottle and costs only 77p which in my opinion is really quite cheap. The question is though is it good value for money. I was keen to find out. The bottle is a creamy white colour with a flip open cap. Around the hole where the shampoo comes out does get a bit messy with the shampoo due to the design.
The shampoo itself is a pearly white colour and smells fresh and quite pleasant. It doesn't smell of anything in particular but it is a nice scent. It is of moderate consistency so doesn't run off your hand when you squeeze some out unlike some cheap shampoos I have tried before. It foams up well in my hair and I get lots of bubbles. It feels quite nice when you are rubbing it into your hair, you feel as if it is nourishing your hair.
I thought this was a really nice good value shampoo. My hair felt really clean, soft and shiny after using it. At first I actually thought it was a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner as my hair felt really soft, not as soft as using a separate conditioner but softer than the shampoo I had been using previously. It is great for dry or damaged hair as it really does nourish your hair.
If you want a cheap shampoo that will leave your hair feeling clean, soft and shiny then I can recommend this to you. It is really good value for money and it worked for me and will hopefully do the same for you too.
