“ Brand: Tesco / in 1 Shampoo / Type: Hair Shampoo / Subcategory: 2 in 1 Shampoo „
I go swimming a lot and always buy a cheap shampoo just to wash my hair quickly before coming home and showering. I picked this up in Tesco from kids section in the shampoo isle. The packaging is different from the picture above, the shampoo now comes in a big white bottle which has a sticker on the front which has a picture of a monkey and some bananas. The bottle contains a 300ml of shampoo and costs 82p.
It is a 2 in 1 shampoo and is recommended for normal/dry hair. The first thing you notice when you open the bottle is the distinct smell of banana, it smells like Nesquik banana milkshake. The shampoo has a bright yellow colour too so it is appealing for kids. It has a no more tears formula too. You need to use a small amount only to get a good lather, I also use this as a shower gel because it smells so good. It rinses out really well too.
I would recommend this for those with young children as it is fun and smells nice, or even big kids like myself. My hair was detangled and felt really clean afterwards. You can't go wrong for the price that you pay this is a great alternative to the more expensive L'Oreal kids brand.
I give this 5 out of 5, It's now a firm favourite in my gym bag!
My mum brought this for my little sister but it smells so nice that I can't stop using it myself and I'm going to have to buy her another bottle because I've used most of this up myself.
It smells strong of banana but more like the smell you get off banana flavoured sweets instead of proper fresh bananas. It's sweet and smells creamy even though the shampoo is a clear gel when you use it.
It's a nice shampoo to wash my hair in and I didn't think it would be so good being a kids shampoo and I don't usually get on very well with 2 in 1 shampoos because I don't think the conditioners are ever any good for my hair.
The lather this shampoo makes is brill and I didn't have to rub my hair very hard to get loads of bubbles. My hair feels clean after I had shampooed it once and my scalp felt clean and refreshed as well. The conditioner works loads better than I had expected and even though it didn't get all the tangles out of my hair I still thought my hair felt soft and in good condition after I'd used it.
I love the way the smell of bananas lasts in my hair. I used it this morning and was out all day and could even smell it a bit when I got home and that was about 7 hours later and even the most expensive shampoo I've ever used didn't last that long. I think it makes my hair feel a bit cleaner for longer as well and even though I wash my hair everyday anyway I reckon using this I could get a bit longer out of it. This might be because it's made for kids so is a bit more gentle and doesn't strip so much of the oil out of my hair.
I asked my mum how much it was and was shocked when she said it was about 70p a bottle because when I brought a bottle of the kids shampoo that L'Oreal do I remember it was nearly 2 quid!
I brought this childrens shampoo today as a change from their usual shampoo.
Reasons of choice was simple, The unbelievable price.
At only 67p it was a £1 less than other brands.
I also chose it because of the scent. It smells good enough to eat, my little boy is sure it smells of nesquik banana milkshake, I think it is more like undiluted crusha.
The bottle that this product comes in is not the one pictured above.
It is a white bottle with a light blue label with tesco and banana dip in white block writing. Picture is of a drawing of a girl with a banana on her head.
The shampoo is for fine/flyaway hair, which is what my daughter has. My son has a short crop and his hair type is thick.
The shampoo is clear and a thinish consistancy, It is not as thick as other makes but it does lather well even with just a 10p sized blob of shampoo.
The shampoo is a 2in1 which means no extra conditioner is needed.
The shampoo is made to reduce the tangles and it does seem to work and I didn't have any problems getting out the knots from my daughters hair.
It is also kinder to eyes and dermatologically tested like so many shampoos nowadays.
I found that the banana scent lingered on the childrens hair for about half a day but did wear off gradually. I do however have to bath my children and wash their hair everyday, so the loss of scent was not an issue to me.
directions for use....
Wet hair, gently massage into hair and scalp. Rinse thoroughly. And thats it, quick and easy with no need to repeat.
All in all and excellent price for a lush smelling product.
I usually buy L'Oreal shampoo for my grandaughters when they stay at my house but someone suggested I try the Tesco range of kids shampoo and said that it does the job of washing their hair just as well but at a fraction of the cost of L'Oreal. I was sceptical because I have never found a cheap shampoo that is as good as any of the leading brands so when I did my on-line shopping I ordered a bottle of L'Oreal Kids and a bottle of Tesco Kids.
I chose the banana scented shampoo purely because I love the smell of bananas but it turned out I picked wisely as when my shopping was delivered I read the bottle properly and this one is for fine and flyaway hair that both of my grandaughters have. The bottle is a bright yellow colour and has a picture of a happy crocodile on it to make this shampoo appeal to children.
The smell reminds me of those foam banana sweets that I think you can still buy in the pick and mix at the cinema. It is a lovely smelling artificial banana smell that is quite strong and smells really fresh.
This is a 2 - in - 1 shampoo for children so it is a little bit thicker than L'Oreals shampoo and is a very nice consistency being a clear liquid with no stickiness. My older grandaughter washes her own hair because she is nearly 12 but my 9 year old grandaughter still gets me to do it. I used the shower to make sure her hair was thoroughly wet and squeezed a blob of shampoo onto her head, her hair is very long so I used plenty but if you are washing a child with short hair or a boy then you could get away with a smaller amount.
It lathered very well and I realised that I needn't have used so much shampoo because my grandaughter was left with a huge afro of bubbles by the time I had finished rubbing her hair and scalp. She was sitting in the bath while I washed her hair so I used some of the excess bubbles to wash her neck and back. The bubbles were thick and had a lovely soft feel and I was surprised about this because cheap shampoo does not usually lather well.
It is easy to rinse off even though there are lots of bubbles and I thought my grandaughters hair felt lovely and soft while the water was spraying over it and I could tell there were less tangles than before.
When her hair had dried it was much easier than usual to comb and there were very few tangles even though I hadn't brushed her hair while it was wet because I think that is bad for the hair. There was the same lovely shine her hair has with L'Oreal and it looked sleeker with less strands of frizz. Her hair was squeaky clean and enveloped in the sweet banana scent that I had smelled when I first opened the bottle. The smell was quite strong for about an hour and I could quite literally smell her coming into a room but this faded to a more personal perfume smell after a while. It lingered on the pillow when she got up the next morning though.
My other grandaughter is at the age where if she doesn't keep on top of her hair washing then her hair can become greasy. I was worried that this might not be as good at cleaning her adolescent hair as it was her little sisters. It made a world of difference to her hair though and it looked lovely and shiny and was very soft to touch and this is where it fares better than L'Oreal because that can definitely make her hair look limp when it has dried. I used it on my own hair last week and think it is a handy bottle to have in for the rare occasions I run out of my own shampoo because it left my hair nice and clean, if not a little hard to style because it was so soft. Still it was nice to smell like a banana for a while.
The bottle says this is dermatologically tested but I think this is standard for childrens products these days. It also says it is kind to their eyes and I believe it probably would be because it seems like a very gentle product to me but I did not get any into my grandaughters eyes so I cannot say for sure. Unless some got in and it was so gentle that she didn't notice.
This 2 - in - 1 shampoo is a bargain at 58p for a 250ml bottle. This is a fantastic price for such an excellent product. L'Oreal Kids shampoo is £2.50 for the same size and Avons lovely childrens range is similarly priced. I do not think I could find a cheaper shampoo that is especially for children at all let alone one cheaper that is even halfway as good as this Tesco one. I once brought a bottle of Sainsburys range of Kids shampoo that cost about 80p and it was horrible and made my grandaughters hairs very greasy, this is why I have avoided cheap shampoo for a while but I am glad I tried this one and it will definitely replace the L'Oreal.
