Tesco Coconut Shampoo
Advantages: smell nice and cheep
Disadvantages: Doesn't really do as much as it says on the lable
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.)

Summary: Great for the price!
