***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.
Summary: A decent shampoo for the tiny price
