For my birthday the girls at work clubbed together and bought me a couple of the Tigi hair products, I always thought my hair was pretty thick but they obviously think my hair needs more volume as they bought me this shampoo.
I have had a look on the internet for the purposes of my review and have found that this is available to buy on amazon for £6.15 for a 250ml bottle which I personally would never have paid myself but we have always bought nice range smellies for the closest group at work and I am forever complaining about my hair so I guess that's why I got them.
The packaging for the shampoo is very attractive and is a tube which stands on its screw top white lid, the tube is very bright pink but also has a metallic finish to it and really jumps out at you. The tube is made of soft plastic which is good as it is soft enough that when you are coming to the end of the tube you can roll it up like you would a toothpaste tube to get the last dregs out. The name of the range is written on the tube in kind of fuzzy capital letters and it does scream out that this is not a cheap product. On the bottom you are told that this is sulphate free shampoo to give you massive hair and there is also information such as the ingredients, the info that this shampoo will keep colour safe and that the protein and nutrient oils add strengthen hair and add shine.
On opening the tube I gave it a little smell and it is lovely, the shampoo smells of sweet strawberries and reminds me of summer. The shampoo seemed to struggle a little to actually lather up and I found that I had to use more of this than I would a normal shampoo for me to feel that I had cleaned my hair properly which means the tube doesn't really last well. I found that the shampoo was easy to rinse out of my hair and didn't seem to leave any residue at all and the smell lasted for a good few hours once I had dried my hair. My hair felt soft after washing and was free from tangles which I think may have been from the conditioner more than the shampoo
I usually like to let my hair naturally and to be honest I don't think it made much difference to the volume of it when I did this. When I did blow dry my hair after using this shampoo I think there was a little bit of increased volume but it didn't really last very long so it really did not give me massive hair like promised. The shampoo is nice as a shampoo but not as a volumiser but to be honest it is not worth paying the extra for as I get the same result from Pantene or Herbal Essences which are by far cheaper, my tip save your money for something better.
I've been a fan of Tigi products for a while now; they're generally very high quality and make my hair really lovely, soft, and gorgeous smelling. The packaging of the products is also brilliant and very modern, which looks great in my bathroom. Unfortunately this Superstar Shampoo did nothing for my hair.
I bought the 750ml bottle of this, which came to just under £15 ( I think it was around £13.50). This is quite expensive for a shampoo, and although I'd be happy paying it for a great quality product, I feel like it's a bit much for a product I don't really like too much. 2/5 for price.
As with all Tigi products, the packaging is brilliant. As I bought the 750ml bottle rather than the 250ml one, it looked different to the one at the top of the review. Mine had a pump action bottle rather than just a lid to take off and squeeze. It's a shiny pink bottle, with the Bedhead logo on it. It certainly does look great in my bathroom, so I would give it a 5/5 for packaging and appearance.
As I've already mentioned, I didn't really think too much of this product. I have coloured hair so it tends to get a dry and lifeless, so I was really looking forward to this product rejuvenating my hair. Unfortunately it didn't really do this. My hair felt almost sticky and greasy as if I'd put a product in it dry. I don't think that it made much difference to the texture or volume of my hair at all. The smell was really lovely, but that's not really enough to go on. A disappointing buy - 2/5.
Although this product certainly has some advantages, such as the lovely packaging and nice smell, it definitely isn't worth spending £13 on. I would not reccomend it to a friend as it didn't do its job at all.
Anyone who has read Bedhead reviews has probably seen me crop up a few times. I am a massive fan of TIGI products in general, but especially the Bedhead range. I have been using their styling products for a few years now and I am always impressed with the results. I actually don't think I could live without them!
A few months previous to purchasing the Superstar shampoo and conditioner, I bought an Oatmeal and Honey shampoo and conditioner by Catwalk, TIGI. I wasn't overly impressed with the effect from that shampoo and I bought this in hope to change my opinion.
Firstly, as always with Bedhead products, this is presented in a lovely metallic pink tube which looks great in anyones bathroom! And again, the scent from the product is amazing. It is the smell of fresh strawberries, good enough to eat!
The substance is quite thick and I struggled to get it to lather properly in my hair, although I did feel like it rinsed out well - or perhaps I was in a world of my own due to the lovely smell?! It left my hair feeling cleansed, however this is where the positives stopped for me. Please note I followed with the use of the Superstar conditioner.
When I had dried my hair, it felt quite straw like. This is unusual for my hair as it is far from dry. It was difficult to style as it felt as if it was almost stuck together. Anyway, I put it down to a bad hair day and carried on. However later, my hair appeared greasy and it needed to be washed again and this was only a few hours later.
For the price that you pay for a product like this you expect better results. I paid approximately £8 for a 250ml bottle of shampoo and the same for the conditioner. I used the shampoo and conditioner a few more times but I kept getting the same dry hair, so I threw it away in the end.
Overall I really wasn't impressed with the quality of this product. As I said before, I really love Bedhead products and I feel its a real shame that I haven't found a shampoo and conditioner that work well for me yet. The quality does not justify the price tag in any way - I wouldn't buy it again.
As a massive Bed Head fan I often recieve the gift sets for christmas and birthdays. I got given this one last year. I recieved the smaller bottles in the range, which look like the picture above and contain 250ml of the shampoo. I have since checked online and these can be bought for about £6 each.
The product is sulfate free which Tigi claims adds volume to your hair. The shampoo contains;
- AOS-40 - Sulfate-free detergent system that cleanses withoutstripping hair colour
- Keravis & Heliogeniol - Provide colour protection.
- Panthenol - Adds volume, body & shine.
- Jojoba Seed Oil & Sunflower Seed Oil - Nutrient-rich oils that condition & add shine
- Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein - A unique protein complex that moisturises hair and helps repair damage
- Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein - Conditions and strengthen.
- Hydrolyzed Keratin - Penetrates hair to help mend split ends.
- Helianthus Sunflower Seed Oil- Nutrient-rich oil that strengthens the hair.
When using this shampoo I noticed that I had to use more than I normally would as I didn't find the lather that great. This disappointed me as I normally use Dumb Blonde and I have had great results with that. The product as with all Tigi shampoos has a nice smell, it is described as creamy strawberry, it reminds me of the campino sweets you could get years ago. I had to wash my hair twice with this as I didn't feel that it was particularly cleansing. I normally use a number of styling products so I need something that will remove all the gunk, this certainly didn't do that.
After drying my hair I found it very dry and unmanagable, I used the conditioner as well but my hair still felt straw like, I had to use a leave in conditioner as well. I would not recommend this for anyone with dry hair like myself as it didn't condition enough.
I would give this 1 out of 5 I was bitterly disappointed. I wouldn't buy this again.
I was first introduced to Tigi by my hairdresser who convinced me it was the best thing that I could buy for my hair. What I failed to realise at the time was that she was on commission for selling as many products as she could and for me personally Tigi perhaps wasn't the best product for me to be using.
As my hair is quite limp and lifeless she recommended that I buy the some of the thickening products and the first of these I am reviewing is the superstar shampoo.
The shampoo cost me £8.95 for a 250ml bottle. I have to say that the one thing that I do love about the Tigi products is their look and the superstar shampoo was right up my street coming in a metallic pink tube which looked great in my bathroom along with the other Tigi products.
If I had actually liked the shampoo then I would have probably been fine with paying the £8.95 for it as it is still below £10 which is usually my cut off point for hair products.
The smell and consistency of the shampoo are great and it has a really nice fruity strawberry smell to it that I really liked. It also lathers well and feels nice on the scalp. However this is where the positives end for me as instead of making ym hair thick and bouncy like it was claimed it would I found that it made no difference whatsoever and my hair was still as lifeless and dull as it is normally without major styling.
I also noticed that after a few hours my hair became much more greasier than it normally would have with my usual shampoo.
I did perservere and also used the products in combination which only made it worse and finally I switched back to using my normal shampoos and conditioners as I found the Tigi superstar one's to be an expensive waste of money and definately more style than substance.
After complaining to Tigi about one of their products they sent me a voucher as an apology, at the time I knew TJ Hughes were selling the range cheap so I decided to go straight there and get more than for my voucher than if I went into a salon to spend it. One problem (among many!) I have with my hair is the fact that it is quite thin, I can tease some volume into it with styling techniques but since having the baby I simply don't have the time. When I saw Superstar Shampoo I decided to give it a go as the bottle claimed it would give me the huge hair of a rockstar.
I bought the large pump bottle, which I think is 750ml, and it cost me much more than I'd usually spend on shampoo but was still quite a bargain compared to the prices of the same shampoo if purchased in a salon.
The first thing I noticed about it was the beautiful smell, I know people rave about the different scents in the Tigi range but I personally think most of them smell run of the mill. This one though is gorgeous, it has a very summery fragrance which is very similar to strawberries although the overall scent is definitely more layered than simply being 'Strawberry'. It's absolutely gorgeous and I love the way the scent lingers on my hair for hours after I've washed it, even when I went to a party recently and was in a very smoky atmosphere I could still smell this beautiful shampoo on my hair when I got home.
The shampoo is quite thick and doesn't lather up as much as I was expecting, it felt as though it was cleaning my hair well even as I was massaging it in and it was very easy to rinse out in the shower. I didn't think I was left with any residue so continued to dry and style my hair as usual.
As soon as my hair began to dry though I realised this wasn't going to be the shampoo for me. Superstar had dried my hair out and it had left a slight reside near to my scalp which made it impossible for me to get a smooth and tidy finish, I mentioned this to a friend of mine and she is under the impression that it is this residue (actually a coating) which gives hair more volume as it causes each individual hair to rise up from the scalp slightly.
This sounds like a good thing I know, but putting any kind of style into my hair after using this shampoo was impossible - even dragging it all back into a pony tail looked a mess as I couldn't get the smooth look I was after as my hair folicles were covered in this residue and just wouldn't lie flat against my scalp. Attempting a more intricate style was a waste of time as the now straw-like texture of my hair made it both look and feel a disaster.
I persevered and used the shampoo another three or four times, but the condition of my hair reduced so drastically with each wash that eventually I gave up. The shampoo also left my hair absolutely full of lugs and tangles, and honestly life is much too short to spend half an hour just brushing my hair. If I had the time I definitely wouldn't have the inclination!
The thing is that the shampoo does make my hair feel completely clean, despite the residue. It gives my hair a stunning shine and as I have already mentioned, the smell is as nice as wearing perfume. I just cannot cope with the extra TLC my hair needs as a result of using Superstar, coupled with the fact that it only really increases volume due to the fact that it makes each hair stick out at a right angle from my scalp. And before you say it, I tried using a good quality (expensive!) conditioner with the shampoo but this doesn't help with the effects either and something in Superstar actually prevents the conditioner from doing its job properly.
£15 or so (for this large bottle) from any Tigi stockist.
I have used Tigi hair products from time to time and decided that I would try Tigi Bed Head Superstar Shampoo as it was being sold on eBay for £4 for 250mls. It usually costs over £7 for this amount at online retailers and currently cost £7.72 plus postage for 250mls at Hair Supermarket. The eBay sellers postage was only £1.25 which I thought was very reasonable.
Tigi Bed Head Superstar Shampoo claims to keep your hair colour safe and give your hair superstar volume, after using this shampoo hair should have added strength and shine.
The shampoo comes in a bright pink plastic tube. The tube has the name of the product on the front and directions for use on the back. The plastic tube can be recycled after use. The shampoo sits above the lid of the tube so this makes the shampoo very easy to dispense from the tube. The tube can also be squeezed after use to ensure you get every last drop of the shampoo out of the tube. With the expensive cost of this shampoo you need to make sure you are able to get all of the product out of the tube.
When I open the shampoo it smells really lovely and has the scent of strawberries. It is a very sweet scent but not unpleasant or sickly. I really like this scent and because it is quite strong I think it will be long lasting. The shampoo is a very light pink colour and it has quite a thin gel like texture. I really thought the shampoo would have had a thicker texture but despite this it lathers really well and rinses out easily. It's a nice shampoo to use, very bubbly and smells great.
After I use the shampoo I condition my hair as normal. I dry and style my hair and look for results! My hair looks good and I do notice extra volume. I don't mean that I now look as if I have double the amount of hair I started with but I can definitely notice more volume. I notice no difference at all in the texture of my hair, it is just the same as always but it does look a bit healthier and it has a nice subtle shine to it.
All in all I had good results with this shampoo and I have since bought the matching conditioner. The shampoo has a lovely scent and is easy and pleasant to use. The shampoo gave my hair a bit more volume and made my hair look shiny and healthy. The shampoo is completely sulphate-free which is an added bonus. Who wants to use a shampoo with lots of chemicals!
Great if you can find this shampoo on special offer, if not it's a bit out of my budget!
I'd heard Tigi Bed Head was a good brand from many people. So i asked for some of the "Superstar" shampoo and conditioner for a Christmas present one year. It claims to give you thick massive hair which sounded fantastic to me as my hair is dry, damaged, thin, and breaking off due to too much heat and coloring.
The first thing i noticed when i used this shampoo was the smell. I mean, i'm not one to usually comment on the smell of something cos to me, as long as it doesn't smell like cow poop it's irrelevant. But the smell of this stuff, oh my god, its GORGEOUS! Like clean, fruity, mouth-watering yummyness!!
But did the product deliver? Unfortunately, no. I was so disappointed as i really, really wanted to like it. My hair after blow drying had a teeny bit more uplift, but really nothing that noticeable. Oww :(
Maybe i should just try eating it instead.
I was given this product as part of a set last Christmas and it was ok but not the best. As a rule I love the bed head range and have tried and really liked lots of them, this was by far the worst. The shampoo left my hair quite sticky and after a while I felt it had gone drier - even though the product states it protects your hair. The shampoo's main claim is that it makes your hair much thicker, I did not find this at all, in fact it seemed to weigh it down! I have always loved the delicious smells from the bed head range but I was disappointed with this one - it didn't seem horrible just not as nice as others. This shampoo was not for me and I would not buy this product again but it hasn't put me off the range as a whole, it could be though that my hair was a little fine for it and it might really work if you have slightly thicker hair.
I bought this shampoo after I fell in love with the smell of the shampoo. I also got recommended to use it by hairdresser just to get that extra thickness and bigger hair. I only use it for when I go on nights out and I love it. It leaves my hair feeling thicker and smelling lovely. I also tried it with the party hair serum and that boosted it even more. I have always used Tigi shampoo and have found some shampoos can be quite heavy and leave my hair feeling heavy and dull but this one was the complete opposite. I would recommend it to anyone to use it for going out to give your hair the special treat before a big night out and for it to look glamorous. I wouldn't recommend it for every day use as my hair got used to it and it didn't have the same effect until I stopped using it every day and started for nights out.
I am really disappointed with this product. I have used lots of TIGI products before such as the Dumb Blonde Reconstructor and the blow dry serum so I thought I would give my hair a treat and give this a go.
The smell is what really made me want to buy it, it smells amazing! Like strawberries. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to eat it.. However, the first time I used this shampoo it left my hair really flat and lank (completely the opposite of what it says on the bottle!). It also went really greasy within a day.
I don't think this product is worth the price, it doesn't do what it claims to and in my opinion is just a waste of money. I've switched back to using good old Herbal Essences now as it leaves my hair fresher and healthier (and it's cheaper!).
Some Tigi products I have had success with and other not so much. I quite liked their Dumb Blonde shampoo, which seemed to give the hair a kick start when it was feeling unhealthy. The Bed Head Supestar Shampoo is supposed to give you thick and glamorous hair. I have enough hair to style something vaguely fashionable out of, in that it's slightly shaggy. I can work my fringe and sweep it round a bit in a sort of emo kind of way. I therefore like my shampoos to plump up the volume and deliver as much bounce and life as possible.
I have had good success with the Loreal Cheryl Cole shampoo of late, but this is a Tigi product which I tried a couple of years back. At double the cost of the Loreal highstreet range, it will put a small hole into the pocket, especially if you're sucked into buying the consitioner and spray as well! Seven pounds is a lot to spend on a shampoo which could last for a month.
Packaging is sleek and sexy and it looks great, but what about the inside bit? The shampoo has a good viscosity to it, so you don't need much. It is suitable for salons too, as it is heavy duty stuff. It lathers up well, leaving behind a delicious fruity twang which will set the nose off in all directions! The washing part is good fun.
Results are middling. It delivers a good cleanse and leaves a certain degree of bounce, but I did not see much difference between this and some of the highstreet brands. Pantene's Volume and Body range and the new Loreal one have both proved they can give you thicker fuller hair for half the price. This wins on smell and packaging and overall chic appeal, but on a budget, I would have to pass on it at the moment.
I began using this shampoo after my hair dresser kept on at me to invest in a large bottle of Tigi Superstar shampoo and conditioner. Although I was faithful to my Brilliant Brunette shampoo I decided to make the switch after I was getting fed up with rich brown hair that look like a damp squib on my head.
The smell is a sweet strawberry smell that although is not unpleasant I did think that I was going to end up with hair smelling like a tarts boudoir. However seen as though you should be using the conditioner as well the smell of the conditioner perfectly compliments it and freshens up the sickly sweetness of it.
At first I didn't think there would be that much difference, but I began to find that when I didn't use it my hair WAS a lot more limp and lifeless, particularly if I let it dry naturally. With this shampoo you have a better chance of keeping that volume in. However dont expect miracles to happen with the shampoo, you will need to blow dry it in order to get the full benefit. If your like me and wash your hair every other day something strange always happens to me, my hair seems to suddenly deflate like someone pulling the toggle out of a lilo making my hair look a bit of a mess for a few hours before I need to wash it. When it says on the bottle 'superstar for a day' you better blinking believe it!
Value for money
Okay I'm a complete scrooge. I feel guilty for spending money on shampoo of all things but guess what? I haven't bought a bottle of shampoo in over a year! I bought two 750ml bottles - one bottle of conditioner and one bottle of shampoo, together it was £25. Shop around - my advice would be www.hairsite.co.uk as it always has fantastic deals on failing that try ebay.
My hairdresser uses Tigi Bedhead products on me, and I always come out of the hairdressers with shiny tresses that smell like a sweet shop. I thought it was high time to start creating that effect at home...enter Tigi Bedhead Superstar Shampoo. I purchased it as part of a set (with Superstar Conditioner(200ml), and Superstar Blow Dry Lotion(250)) which cost around £13.
I love the packaging of all Bedhead products, and this is no exception. It's a shiny hot pink tube, with black writing emblazoned across it. It's sulfate-free so won't fade your coloured hair.
The product itself is a white/pearl coloured liquid, and for shampoo, has quite a thick consistency. It smells GORGEOUS!! As I said before, it smells like you are applying l'essence du Sweet Shop to your hair. Yummy!
After using this product, my hair was full, swishy, shiny, all the things it usually isn't without hairdresser assistance! My hair isn't particularly fine, but I definitely noticed that it felt thicker after using this product. However, I was more impressed with how shiny and easy to manage my hair was. It really made my hair look and feel gorgeous, I couldn't stop touching it! Also, the scent lasted all that night and the next day, which I was very impressed by, as the scent usually disappears within hours.
A 750ml tube of this shampoo costs around £15, however if you buy the shampoo and conditioner together, you can get two big tubs with pump tops for around £25. This sounds expensive but you use a lot less of it than you do cheaper shampoo, so it lasts forever, and it's just so much better. I hope this was helpful, thanks for reading!
I am a big fan of Bed Head i have tried most of the products and i really like this shampoo, it's not the best they have but it is very nice. It all depends on what hair type you have. I felt that my hair was thinner than it use to be and i love that feeling of thick hair. This shampoo does make your hair feel thicker especially if you use the same conditioner too.
It smells gorgeous, feels nice and looks nice. It looks very expensive and girlie, the price varies depends where you shop for it. Normally most places do '2 for £20' that is the big bottles for this size bottle it's £6. I prefer the big bottles they last for a very long time! This shampoo gets rid of any dirt etc and washes really well although i would like it to leave my hair feeling a bit more softer than it does.
It doesn't irritate my scalp, makes my hair feel thicker and my hair smells nice for a very long time. You only need a small amount on your hair depending on hair length. This shampoo was recommended to me from a hair dressers. When i blow dry my hair it doesn't feel dry and i use other Bed Head products.
