“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Hair Shampoo „
I have to watch every penny I have and that's why I buy a lot of shop's own brand products. There is a very small Tesco round the corner, near to where my flat is and I shop in there most of the time. Last time I needed shampoo I bought some of their own brand coconut shampoo because I love the sweet smell of coconuts and also because it was really dead cheap at only 89p. Bargain not to be missed. The bottle is big so you get a lot of shampoo for your money.
This is a shampoo which I'm guessing would be great for the whole family to use and it's definitely one you can use regularly without fear of your hair turning into a frizzy mess. The shampoo itself is quite thick and it feels rich and creamy as soon as you start to massage it into damp hair. It smells of lovely sweet fresh coconuts and it's such a natural fresh small and not artificial in fragrance.
The shampoo lathers up very well and then rinses back off afterwards and it makes my hair feel soft and more manageable after I've used this. I don't think that Tesco make an accompanying conditioner, though if they do then I have not been able to find one in my branch. A bottle of this lasts me for ages and it really suits my hair. I love it and really recommend it.
What initially drew me to this shampoo was the fact that it had the picture of a coconut on the front of it. Being a fan of all things coconut, this seemed like the ideal shampoo for me to buy - provided it worked for my hair of course - and I decided having given it a quick sniff that it was worth a go, whether it turned out to work or not. My hair isn't particularly dry or damaged, in fairness, but it does go through stages of being drier, and tends to suffer from split ends, so I figured it might do my hair some good. And if not, I hoped it would at least smell nice on my hair (and in the bathroom as well for that matter).
It comes in a somewhat cloudy white looking tall plastic bottle now that holds 750ml of shampoo - a very decent amount in my opinion. When I first bought it, the above bottle was more the correct representation of the packaging, but now they have changed it into a circular bottle instead which is much more white than the one above. The overall look is quite similar though, with brown and white being the predominant colours. It's still the same stuff though, as far as I'm aware, only without the picture on the front.
The cap is a flip top style cap that you flip open, then turn the bottle upside down and squeeze to get the shampoo to come out. It's not the sort that will stay in the bottle for long when it's turned upside down though unfortunately, so you need to make sure there's something under it to catch it!
The shampoo itself is a similar colour to the bottle, being a cloudy white colour. It is fairly thick, but will run if you're not careful with it. I think this is a good thing because it means you don't waste too much of it. When you apply it to your hair I've found that there is a fair amount of lather that comes from it which is a good thing as well because it suggests that it's doing it's job, even though this isn't technically necessary. It just feels as though it is.
It certainly seems to feel like it cleanses your hair, and the smell of coconut is very present when you're washing your hair. If you don't like coconut, to be honest, you really won't like this at all. If you like coconut though then I'd say you'd definitely like it. When you wash off all of the shampoo, I'd say the smell of coconut is kind of gone, although once it's dry, if you happen to sniff your hair (mine's half way down my back so it happens fairly often; it just kind of flies around in the wind and smacks me in the face repeatedly!) it still smells of coconut which I think is definitely a good thing. And it does make my hair feel clean once it's dry as well. (Especially if it's used with the Tesco Coconut Conditioner, this seems to make it work the best to be honest.) I did notice my hair was starting to look a little bit less clean by the end of the following day though, but I suppose this is only to be expected really, and few shampoos seem to keep your hair looking good for more than a day or so anyway.
In terms of how long this shampoo lasts for, I'd say I get about 10 washes out of this which I thought was pretty good really considering how long my hair is. It costs 88p normally in my local Tesco, but I have seen it once or twice on offer for 2 for £1 and 2 for £1.50, which obviously makes it a much better deal!
I'd definitely recommend this shampoo, especially alongside the conditioner!
I love the smell of coconut so when I saw this coconut extract shampoo in Tesco a couple of months ago, I grabbed a few bottles. I was going to buy more as it was really cheap, but I kind of thought 'well it might be rubbish' so didn't go over the top.
Now I've tried it & know it is a decent shampoo though I will be buying some more! I think I paid around 90p per large 750ml bottle if I remember correctly, but knowing Tesco the price will have probably gone up by a few pence by now. Either way it is still a lot cheaper than most other brands and I was surprised how good it is.
The packaging is okay but not that eye catching or stylish, but this doesn't bother me. It is just a large, quite bulky plastic bottle which stands upright. I find the bottle a little awkward to hold when I have wet hands due to the smooth plastic, so I tend to get a dry flannel and wrap it around it when I need to pick it up. The branding is okay with the product name, the ingredients etc written in it clearly.
Unlike a lot of other brands of cheap shampoo the bottle does actually have a flip top lid which I like, most don't which makes it awkward to stop the product from flowing out all at once so this is definitely an advantage. The shampoo itself is not as thick as the shampoo I had been using previously which was a little more expensive but it wasn't too runny and it had a slight thickness to it without actually being thick if that makes sense so when squeezing it out of the bottle it didn't run out of the palm of my hands.
I only needed one large blob of it and it lathered up really well and transformed into a thick, rich foam. I was pleasantly surprised by this, as cheap shampoos sometimes don't lather well. The shampoo spread through my hair very easily too as the texture of it is very smooth. Once I'd applied it to my hair I left it on for a few seconds and enjoyed the smell. It smells lovely! Just like coconut, and surprisingly natural.
It's a creamy, subtle smell which is not at all unpleasant or artificial smelling and it isn't too sweet. The smell in my opinion is definitely unisex and my fiance doesn't mind using it as it doesn't leave his hair smelling too sweet or girly! When it came to washing the shampoo out it took a little effort as it had lathered up so well and I spent a good for minutes getting it all out.
It didn't leave my hair feeling sticky or anything though and my hair once I had rinsed it all out felt clean and silky smooth, though I definitely couldn't tell any difference to the softness while it was still wet. After using the shampoo I used the coconut extract conditioner which was also quite cheap and this left my hair feeling soft and moisturised. Once I had dried my hair it felt soft and bouncy with a little shine.
I could still smell the coconut fragrance in my hair afterwards and I am impressed with the shampoo. Though it didn't leave my hair noticeably softer by itself it did definitely help make it feel squeaky clean and smooth. All in all I really like this shampoo and it is a real bargain!
I definitely recommend it and I think many people will be pleasantly surprised considering the price. Also, because it comes in quite a large bottle and I only need a medium sized blob each time a bottle lasts for at least a couple of months so it is amazingly good value.
Review of Tesco Coconut Shampoo
I have no loyalty to any particular shampoo brands, I am not bothered who makes it as long as it does what I need it to do and smells reasonable, with this in mind when I spotted this own brand coconut shampoo and the matching conditioner on the bargain counter in my local Tesco Express at just 70p for a huge 750ml bottle, I was tempted to try them.
This shampoo is presented in a vaguely rectangular shaped plastic bottle with a flip top lid. The bottle is fairly plain, it is white and the front label carries a picture of an opened coconut on a black background. The Tesco logo and product name are on a brown banner above this. All directions, ingredients and other information can be found on the rear of the bottle.
The actual shampoo is of a clear white gel-like consistency which is ideally suited to the dispensing cap.
As mentioned, the bottle has a flip open lid, this works very well and the hole beneath the lid is just the right size to dispense the shampoo without having to squeeze the container or running the risk of wasting the product.
The scent is gorgeous, sweet and densely coconutty. I've had coconut shampoos from far more expensive ranges in the past which do not smell as richly as this own brand does. The scent reminds me of warm coconut cakes cooking, it is a really lovely scent and my bathroom smells delicious after I've used this.
I live in a very hard water area and shampoos, shower gels and other foaming products are sometimes hard pressed to produce lather. This shampoo was no exception as it struggled to produce an acceptable amount of lather, however it did rinse out of my hair easily. The shampoo left it feeling fresh and cleansed with no residue. I find this shampoo also leaves a pleasing delicate coconut scent in my hair which last fairly well.
As this is not a conditioning shampoo, I do tend to follow my shampoo with the matching conditioner. I have waist length, naturally wavy, unruly hair and I cannot go without a conditioner as the ensuing tangles are a nightmare!
I will not bore readers with an ingredients list that reads like a chemist dispensing stock list or insult your intelligence by telling you how to wash your hair and warning that you are not to drink your shampoo! All this type of information can be found on the Tesco website or the product label should anyone be sufficiently interested in knowing these things!
**My Thoughts and Conclusion**
For a budget price this own brand shampoo performs exceptionally well. The shampoo is designed for dry, damaged hair. My hair is what I would describe as combination, dry ends with slightly greasy roots; the shampoo tackles both of these issues with ease.
The scent of this product is very good; I was pleased with both the performance of the shampoo and with the fragrance. My (male) other half has used this shampoo too, as has my 13 year old granddaughter and they both also liked the smell, so I think it is safe to say that Tesco Coconut shampoo is an acceptable purchase for all the family to use.
For a bargain counter buy I feel this was 70p well spent and I would recommend to others.
I am awarding Tesco coconut Shampoo at 4* rating, dropping a * for the poor lathering qualities.
Thank you for reading.

UPDATE September 2013. This product seems to have disappeared from our local Tesco unfortunately!
I don't usually like coconut smelling beauty products or hair care products but then again I didn't actually buy this shampoo myself. I had given my husband a shopping list and amongst other things I'd asked him to pick up some Tesco shampoo whilst he was out. He came home with this Tesco's Coconut shampoo for everyday use. I didn't really like the smell too much when I first sniffed it and also as it's designed for dry and damaged hair, I wasn't sure it was going to be suitable for my hair type as I suffer from greasy roots with dry ends.
I have used it a few times now and I was surprised by how nice this actually is. He only paid 89p for it so I shouldn't have really complained. It's quite a rich, thick and luxurious shampoo, especially for the small cost The colour is sort of off-white and has an almost pearly sheen to it when you hold it in the palm of your hand and under the light. It's not a runny or thin shampoo and it actually reminds me of one of the Garnier Fructose shampoos I've also used, though obviously not so expensive.
In the shower, once applied to my wet hair, it does lather up reasonably well, though I have to use slightly more of this than I do my herbal Essence or Dove shampoos. It rinses off well and leaves no residue and afterwards my hair looks and feels shiny and smells fresh and looks in very good condition. I was worried that it might have made my roots go greasy quickly, especially as it is specifically designed for dry hair. This isn't the case, however, and my roots have not become greasy any quicker since I've started to use this shampoo.
As for the smell. Well, it does smell of coconuts, as I say, but it's not an overpowering smell and it's definitely not too strong, I'm pleased to say. Once my hair has been dried and styled I can't really detect the smell of coconuts at all, just shampoo. I have also used it on our daughter's hair and it seems gentle enough for her. My husband likes it and probably uses it more than I do.
It's good for the price, just a basic decent shampoo and I do recommend it, whether you have dry hair or not.
===The bottle is now taller and slimmer with a different label===
Made for Tesco.
Tesco Everyday Coconut Shampoo for dry or damaged hair.
Tall clear bottle.
Creamy pearlised liquid - reasonably thick shampoo.
Transparent front and back labels with brown and cream lettering.
Large mid-brown lid with a flip up top.
'A shampoo for everyday use, specially formulated with natural extract to help leave your hair feeling soft, healthy and manageable.
Avoid contact with eyes.
Produced in UK for Tesco and use within 24 months.
88p for 750 mls.
There is also a Coconut Smooth Conditioner for the same price.
I love coconut items and thought this would be a great shampoo. I have already tried the Tesco Tea Tree shampoo for the same price and that is really nice.
This looks very rich and fruity in the bottle but I am sorry to say it does not have much aroma at all - either in the bottle or when in use.
To use the shampoo is good and creamy, lathers nicely and rinses out well and I have had no problems with irritation or dryness - or greasiness for that matter. My hair is not especially dry or damaged and would just call it 'normal', but the shampoo worked fine for me and would suit anyone I think.
The shampoo, being a bargain price of 88p is therefore a good buy just as a shampoo, but if you want a lovely experience with coconut aromas this is not the one for you.
I still give it three stars as it works well and for 88p you cannot expect a lovely strong perfume as well - though I think it could have had a it more aroma that it currently does.
The label has a long list of ingredients one of which is 'Cocos Nucifera Fruit Extract' - which is actually just coconut palm fruit extract.
This is not a bad shampoo and being so reasonably priced I would buy it again but I would love more coconut smell please.
===Would I Recommend?===
Tesco's Everyday Coconut Shampoo. I will also be reviewing the conditioner in a minute!
***Why I Bought***
So I went on holiday to relatives, packed everything, got there and realised I'd forgotten Shampoo or Conditioner, as you do... next day was a shopping trip to Tesco and I looked and saw this on the shelf. For a few uses they were cheap, around 80p each - currently the shampoo is 88p (but there's a 3for2 offer on, quick, go!) which for 750ml of shampoo is... super cheap. No arguments.
The packaging isn't bad - it's a very large, see through bottle with a clear label on the front and back - the brand, smell, everyday use etc on the front and all the ingredients and other info on the back. It's recyclable plastic which may be a bonus depending on your outlook on the 3 Rs.
The shampoo is quite thin but not badly so, it doesn't make it particularly difficult to use, just means you may want to be sure that you don't tip too much out. It is, as expected, a somewhat creamy white colour, not very "solid" colour but it looks fine - and my god it does smell of coconut! It has a good smell level and it smells as you'd hope a coconut product to. It lathers up quite nicely, no problems on that front at all and it also rinses easily - no standing there wondering if your hair will ever be shampoo free again!
On the bottle this says it's a shampoo for dry/damaged hair. On the back it says it's been formulated with natural extract to leave hair feeling soft, healthy and manageable.
Well, on the very basic all a shampoo has to really do to be a good shampoo is to leave hair clean. If it lives up to its claims, that's helpful.
This shampoo does a great job of the first - my hair did feel clean afterwards, not like it had totally stripped my scalp of every oil ever, just a nice clean feeling. It is for dry hair so I expected it to feel around that.
The claims I didn't feel it lived up to properly though, I can tell how my hair is feeling after shampoo and it was a little stressed and tangly. Nothing major, just not as smooth and manageable as I hoped. But I stil had conditioner to go so it wasn't a worry.
This gets 4* - it's not perfect and sure, you may get better results elsewhere, but it's not a bad buy at 88p for 3x the amount in many shampoo bottles. For that you could easily wash it a 2nd time to remove any extra dirt traces.
So there we go, and I go onto the conditioner review.
When purchasing shampoo and conditioner I always like to have 'set's that go together but recently I was caught short after realising I'd somehow run out of shampoo and my husband had failed to tell me that he had used up the last amount and discarded the bottle already! I popped to my lovely neighbour and she saved the day with some of this coconut shampoo from Tesco and she gave me almost a full bottle which I then replaced, for just 88p, and I kept the bottle that she had given me so she wasn't out of pocket for my being caught short!
Now coconut shampoo is not something that I would normally purchase because I have had a reaction to coconut in the past and would just avoid it but in this instance it was something of an emergency as I had very greasy hair that I needed to dye desperately and I needed something to shampoo it with afterwards.
The packaging for this shampoo is simple but effective. These is the Tesco logo, ingredients and other details on the labels on the front and back as well as a picture of an opened coconut, all quite simple but easy to identify on the shelf. There is also a coconut conditioner available for people, like myself, who like to mix and match, however, I didn't purchase the conditioner when replacing my neighbours shampoo purely because I have several Body Shop ones that I am working my way through at the moment. The bottle is simple to open with a flip top lid and I can do this even when my hands are wet from the bath or shower. The bottle is plastic so I do not have to worry about it shattering when I inevitably drop it while in the shower. In all as I said, simple but effective, also, the bottle is recyclable too.
This shampoo is for dry and damaged hair so has been ideal for me to use after dyeing my hair again. My hair does get quite dry at the ends while prone to greasy spots and it can be damaged too because I regularly blow dry and straighten my hair too to get a polished look for nights out, also I am prone to crimp or style my hair using rollers too. This shampoo comes out quite thin and creamy white in colour. It smells strongly of coconut and while it is not the most luxurious looking shampoo it certainly does the job! Because this shampoo is a little thinner than others I have used in the past I actually have been finding it very easy to apply to my hair, particularly after colouring it and being left with horrible straw like hair for the first one or two washes.
This shampoo smells quite artificial and is ridiculously sweet too! This does put me off a little if it is early in the morning and I haven't had breakfast yet. Because of this I have taken to packing this shampoo in my gym bag as I normally work out in the afternoons or evenings and can therefore stomach this a lot more, plus it goes nicely with a shower gel that my gym usually stocks in the showers too. The main reason that I have kept using this, despite the sweetness overload, is because of how well cared for my hair is after use, also the scent doesn't linger after I have rinsed my hair either. Once I rinse this shampoo off my hair feels soft and smooth all over. The dryness that I have been experiencing because of hair dye and hair strippers is eradicated thanks to this in conjunction with a conditioner. After I have dried my hair it feels light and bouncy without being weighed down at all. In all though I feel that most of the softness was contributed to by the conditioner that I used and so because of this I feel that this shampoo is just worthy of a 2 out of 5 star rating because it just did not produce enough lather for a rich, luxurious hair wash.
I'm always on the lookout for bargains and when I spotted in Tesco their own brand Coconut Shampoo for sale at 88p for 750ml I bought it.
It comes in a simple but sturdy plastic bottle that has 'everyday shampoo' written on it in dark brown with a coconut depicted. The lid is an easy to use flip top lid with a pour control hole.
When I opened the bottle the smell of coconut was really nice. It's white in colour and is thick and creamy in consistency.
I squirted a good size blob on my hand without much effort, then applied to wet hair. It lathers up okay and I love the smell. It rinses off well and quick but I did notice that my hair was dry and brittle even when wet- therefore conditioner is needed especially to help deal with de-tangling and combing.
The resulting wash is a very clean head of hair, the scent of coconut seems to last quite a while which is a great bonus. It doesn't irritate my scalp or skin either.
This bottle has lasted well, about 3 weeks, as I only have to wash my hair once, not twice at a time.
To sum up it's cheap and cheerful cleans my hair and leaves it looking shiny (well ish) and smells nice too. Great shampoo but defo needs the conditioner to go with it.
When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I'm not brand loyal in the slightest and I usually get whatever I like the sound of, or whatever is on offer. I came across this coconut shampoo in Tesco's a few weeks ago now and although I didn't really need a new bottle of shampoo, I decided to buy a bottle anyway as I liked the sound of it, and at just 88 pence for the generously sized 750ml bottle, it seemed like a complete bargain! To be honest, I think I purchased it mainly out of curiosity as I couldn't quite believe how cheap it was.
This shampoo is part of Tesco's own brand range of toiletries. At first I assumed that it was part of the Tesco everyday value range, although it isn't. There is a range of other scents available in the Tesco own brand range of shampoo and conditioners, and a coconut conditioner is available as well for around the same price as the shampoo. The shampoo comes in a cylindar shaped plastic bottle which is transparent meaning that the creamy white shampoo is visible. The bottle has a brown flip lid and brown font on the front which simply says 'everyday shampoo'. The bottle has a slight glossy shine to it from the visible shampoo and although the branding and the design of the bottle are minimalistic, it doesn't look like a cheap product in my opinion.
This shampoo is suitable for dry and damaged hair - I wouldn't say that my hair is damaged, but I straighten it everyday (sometimes twice a day) so a repairing shampoo that is aimed towards damaged hair is probably best. Opening the bottle is easy due to the flip lid - I hate screw-top shampoo/conditioner bottles as it's hard to get a good grip with wet hands from the shower! The flip lid once open exposes a hole which I find handy as it stops too much product from coming out at once. The bottle isn't squeezy which I always find a bit awkward with shampoo bottles, especially large ones like this, however this isn't much of an issue. The shampoo itself is a creamy white colour and it has a nice shine to it. The consistency is much thinner than the usual (more expensive) brands of shampoo that I use, however it's still got a bit of texture to it and it isn't runny. It's certianly not a rich, thick, luxurios feeling shampoo but for the price, it's good enough!
The smell of this shampoo is suprisingly nice and it really does genuinely smell like coconuts! The scent isn't particullary natural and it is overlly sweet (in my opinion) with fruity undertones, but it's a very refreshing, clean smell. The smell doesn't linger in my hair once it's dried and straightened, which doesn't bother me at all. Using the shampoo is a simple process, although I did need to use a very large blob to completely cover my hair as a little doesn't go a very long way - I must of used a third of the bottle in one go as it refuses to lather! The shampoo washes out of my hair easily and it leaves no residue behind. Immedietly after using this, when my hair was still wet, my hair actually felt quite dried out, although my conditioner soon sorted this out. After using this, along with my conditioner, my hair felt soft, clean and it appeared shinier and smoother. I highly doubt that the shampoo played much part in this though, and I don't think I'd purchase it again. Yes it's cheap, but it smells a little too artificial for me and it doesn't lather very well at all. I'd rather pay 50p or so extra and get a much better quality shampoo such as VO5. On a more positive note, the shampoo is not tested on animals.
Now I don't normally care what shampoo I use, generally when I am at home I just still whatever my sister buys much to her distress. So now I am a student buying all these things myself I though what the hell I will give Tesco own coconut shampoo ago. I didn't really have many high hopes for this product but for 67p (which was the price when I bought it) and you get 750ml, I thought you couldn't really go wrong.
My first impressions where good it has a nice coconut smell but wasn't to strong and the colour wasn't luminous or neon so I thought we were off to a good start. It was a bit runny in my opinion; I am used to shampoos being thicker. So I was surprised at how little I needed to use as it foams up really well. I washed my hair through twice just to be sure and when I dried it all seemed pretty ok.
I was a little disappointed that my hair didn't smell of coconut, I like my hair to smell of my shampoo (that might be wired, but oh well) and I has thought that as it had a nice smell to start with it might stay in my hair but the smell got washed out with the shampoo. It terms of the effect had I my hair it did it basic job and washed, I had clean hair so all was good. However, my hair didn't feel particularly smooth and I don't think it has helped my hair be any less dry or damage like it said it would on the label. I carried on using it and still didn't find it had helped my hair be smooth or less dry after continued use. Though for 67p and a 750ml bottle that will last for ages, if you're on a budget or a student like me I really don't see anything wrong with using this product. No it is not amazing but is cleans your hair and honestly what more do you need?
It terms of packaging it is very simple and not in your face. If you worried about people seeing your cheap shampoo then don't be it just looks like a generic shampoo. (Should point out that my bottle differs in appearance to the one in the pic, mostly the one I have is in a clear bottle, which I prefer as I like to see the colour and consistency of a product before I buy it.)

I am used to using more expensive loreal brands but with the credit crunch, i have felt the need to tighten my belt and not spend so much on these simple things. At 1.59 for a 560ml bottle, it was like throwing money down the plug in the shower!
At only 80p for a massive 750ml bottle, and a free coconut smell that comes with it, i personally think it is great value for money and actually texture and cleanliness wise, is no different to the current loreal brand.
This shampoo comes in a white and very strong and sturdy plastic bottle with a flip top lid. The lid opens and closes well and doesn't get jammed or stuck like some of them can do, nor does it fall off like some i have used! The consistency of this shampoo is very thick and rich and creamy and it feels nice and smooth as I mash it between my hands and fingers before I apply it to my damp hair. I tend to use alot of shampoo on every use, and i wash daily, not because i need to but because this is my usual routine which i have adhered to for nearly 10 years. It does not leave a sticky residue and washes off well. It is non irritating and does not leave my hair greasy or matted
The topical smell of coconuts, remains in my hair for longer than immediate styling, and throughout the day i get commented on both the smell and shine of my hair. I find the bottle lasts for a good month or so, and the bottle is plain and simple, hence the cheaper price as it is not hugely over endulged. I am also yet to have an accident with the bottle, whereas with the loreal bottle i have had a few fall overs and wasted quite a considerable amount before.
Great stuff and really recommended.
I often use shop's own brand stuff and I have found that Tesco do a really nice coconut shampoo for only 80p for a massive 750ml bottle. I personally think this is really great value for money as the shampoo itself is much nicer to use than some of the more expensive named brands ones I have been using recently.
This shampoo comes in a white and very strong and sturdy plastic bottle with a flip top lid. The lid opens and closes well and doesn't get jammed or stuck like some of them can do. The consistency of this shampoo is very thick and rich and creamy and it feels nice and smooth as I mash it between my hands and fingers before I apply it to my wet hair on both my head and my facial beard.
I never need to use a lot of this sampoo as it always seems to lather up very quickly and creates a good amount of soapy bubbles all over my head. It rinses off well afterwards also and does not leave any sticky residue or a gunky feeling on my hair after it has been rinsed off. It does not irritate my scalp and seems kind to my sensitive skin too.
The smell of this shmapoo is really wonderful, espcially if you like the smell of tropical flavours such as coconuts. The smell of coconuts is very strong and pwerful and even after I have rinsed it off for ages afterwards I can still smell coconuts on my face as it is near to my nose.
The packaging of this shampoo is plain and simple but that is what I personally prefer. It is suitable for both men and women and can be sued by all the family. It is not too womanly a smell or too feminine or sickly and as a bloke I am happy to be seen using this.
As is is a strong and sturdy bottle it is not prone to falling over when I take a shower and it is standing next to me. It will last you for ages as you only need to use a small amount.
Great stuff and really recommended.
I often buy a shops own brand of products because it can save a lot of money. I have bought lots of different shampoos over the years and this one is my latest shampoo that I wanted to try since I had not tried it before.
The shampoo is housed in a strong plastic bottle with a flip lid. The bottle is quite a large one at 750ml and is priced at around 80p, so a very cheap price for the amount in the bottle. The bottle stands really well on the side of the bath or on a shower rack. It does not tip over at all and so a bonus for me. I hate it when a bottle keeps tipping when trying to have a shower etc.
The shampoo is a white colour, it has a really thick consistency considering it is so cheap. It does not run down the side of the bottle as some other cheaper ones tend to do, this one is fine. It is a nice texture and has a really nice smell to it, being of coconut. The coconut smell is quite a strong one but it is not so strong it is an unpleasant smell, it is a really nice one and one that I like a lot. I do like coconut products and so this one suits me very well indeed. It cleans the hair very well too and removes all of the dirt from my hair to leave it nice and refreshed and certainly clean.
Only a small amount is needed to work a lather into the hair, my hair is quite short but my wife has longer hair and she does not need to use much more than I do to create a nice lather. It also rinses very well after shampooing the hair with no problems at all. It does leave the hair nice and soft and not at all rough as I first thought it may. It is a nice gentle shampoo and it does leave the smell of the coconut on the hair for a while after washing it but the smell does tend to not be apparent for as long as a branded shampoo but that is not a problem for me.
This one is suitable for all the family to use, I think it is excellent value for the cheap price and it is well worth the money. I think it is really good value for money and also good quality. I think the amount in the bottle is good for around 80p. A little goes a very long way and so the bottle does last for quite a few weeks. I will definitely buy this one again because I like the way it lathers without having to keep on pouring more shampoo to get a lather as with some other cheaper brands.
I highly recommend this one for anyone who is looking to buy a cheaper one because it is worth the 80p.
I rate it 5 stars.
Tesco coconut shampoo.
Not being blessed with a whole head of hair (I prefer that to balding) I don't really mind what shampoo I use. I haven't gone the whole hog and shaved the rest of my hair off, neither do I have a wafting great combover, I veer towards a number two cut. However I share my life with ladies blessed with a flowing abundance of hair, from dry through normal to greasy so this shampoo would be put through its paces by several different hair types and textures.
On a bit of a budget kick as you may have noticed if you've read any of my other reviews and having been warned by the women in the family not to come home with the very basic value brand (with their hair being so long they feel they need to give it a bit more TLC than that would provide) I looked at the next step up and when I spotted this in my basket it went.
Initially the family were dubious and approached it somewhat like a nervous pup would a Rotweiller, but I was delighted to find after their initial misgivings they actually quite like it. The bottle has changed from the Dooyoo picture and is actually much better value at 81p when I bought it, (the prices change almost daily in Tesco) for 750mls. The bottle is clear and the nice pearly shampoo can be seen clearly through it. The flip top lid is nice and strong and doesn't seem to gunk up too much. The bottle is a little heavy and slippery in the shower, but the plastic seems to give just the right amount to stop me from breaking toes on a regular basis.
The scent of the shampoo is distinctly coconuty, which I find really nice, it's not too flowery smelling for a bloke. Once my hair is washed the smell disappears which I don't mind, but the women would have quite liked to be able to smell this in their hair afterwards.
I don't use conditioner as I don't have enough hair to bother, so can't say from personal experience how it performs if you do, but the coven assure me that any conditioner used afterwards works just as well as it would with any other shampoo.
My hair is clean, soft and remains looking ummm... tidy is the best I can say for my hair even on a very good day... so it remains tidy and clean for a couple of days..
One thing I have noticed about this is that like many cheap shampoos it is fairly thin and tends to have a magnetic affect on the itself, as once the lead dribble is out of the exit it seems to want to pull the whole bottle along with it. You do need quite a dollop of this to get a half decent lather and the women find this a bit disconcerting, but on my short hair it does seem to lather up more quickly than on their ridiculously long barnets. Even though you need to use more shampoo the bottle is so big it still lasts a long time.
Anyway a good value product that we buy on a regular basis.
