“ Brand: Timotei / Type: Hair Shampoo / What it does: Energises „
I don't normally use the same shampoo; I buy different ones depending how I feel at the time. A few weeks ago I bought a bottle of Timotei volume and energy. It is pure nature; it is made with extracts of fresh orange and wild mint. The combination of the two makes a heavenly smell, which is a real pleasure to use on your hair. Not only does it smell nice, but also it works. I have bought so many shampoos that have been advertised, but none of them do what they say they will, I never notice any different. I have got thick hair, but it just hangs and has no life. I decided to buy the "fine a lifeless hair" to see if it could boost some energy into my lifeless locks! It washes in the same as normal shampoos, but creates a creamy lather with the natural pleasure of a fresh invigorating fragrance. Once my hair was dry it smelt gorgeous, was stroke ably soft and was full of life. It is now so easy to style and shape. It does exactly what it says on the bottle, volumize, vitalise, shine and improve manageability. A 250ml bottle lasted me 5 1/2 weeks, washing twice a week; you don't need to use much because it lathers incredibly. It?s not even a pricey shampoo; I have seen it priced from 99p in boots! I would defiantly recommend this shampoo to anyone who wants to revitalise his or her hair. It has made such a difference to me, my hair is so much easier to manage and style. Thanx for reading my op, loz xx
Energising Orange? It sounds like it should be a flavour of a trendy sports drink right? Well you would be wrong. It is in fact part of Timotei?s range of shampoos. I bought this yesterday as I had run out of shampoo. I tend to by Clariol's Herbal Essences then a different shampoo. I tend to either buy either shampoo for oily hair or fine hair as my hair is shoulder length, blond very fine and gets greasy quite easily. Timotei was launched in 1983 word Timotei originates from the Swedish name for Timothy Grass - a grass variant that grows in meadows. The bottle The bottle is a big one. 400 ml the bottle is a rounded off triangle with an orange top. There are very appetising oranges on the front. The text is both in French and English and it proclaims it is energising orange and the orange is full of natural extracts. It is for fine and lifeless hair. The blurb on the back proclaims The active power of nature brings you 100% natural beauty. and For the first time Timotei has captured a highly concentrated active orange extract. It combines these energising and refreshing properties into a gentle yet highly effective shampoo Why do shampoos have to energise, moisturise, add nutrients etc. Why can?t they just clean your hair !! On further inspection of the bottle I learn it is made by Lever Faberge and does not say anything about animal testing. Maybe I should not have bought it as maybe bunnies have had it in their eyes. It also lists a number of ingredients with funny names. I'm not sure what any of them are. The price The price was one of the reasons I bought this product. It was £2.50 for 400 mls a bargain. I like to get nice shampoo but would not spend more than £2.50 on a bottle. I was considering being an absolute cheapskate and buying Tesco's own brand shampoo half a litre for 60p but that was a bit
too cheap!! Where can it be purchased? Any chemist or supermarket The Smell The smell is very alluring. I get a nice whiff off oranges. So far so good The Looks It does even look like very thick orange juice as it is the same colour. The consistency is ok. Not too runny but no the almost jelly like consistency of Herbal essences. The actual test. After jumping into the shower I poured a decent amount into my hands and lathered it up. It lathers very well and soon I was having fun lathering it into my hair. It also rinses well leaving my hair smelling very yummy indeed. After drying my hair my hair looks very shiny and quite softly although it did tangle a bit 10 hours later n my hair still smells of that nice orange fragrance I might buy the shampoo again. It does smell wonderful and cleans my hair well however Unilever do test on animals so that's bad news You can contact Faberge Lever on 0800 085 2864 or Consumer Bureau Lever Fabrege Ltd Freepost Admail 1000 London SW1A ZXX
This shampoo really wakes me up in the mornings, as it smells amazing. Stuff the fact that it's lovely to my hair, and makes it feel great, it smells heavenly. First impressions really do count, and the strong smell of fresh oranges and mint really captures you to like it already! It's orange too, which is fantastic. I also find that you don't need to use very much to shampoo your hair, and that it really cleans it, but doesn't make it too "squeeky clean", which can feel terrible to comb through after. If you chose to do a second wash, this shampoo lathers really well the second time, and feels really invogorating as the orange and mint wakes up your scalp. After washing, I find that my hair is clean, but not "too clean", so as it feels brittle, and it's really easy to comb. Plus, that lovely smell remains for some time. I'd definitely recommend this to people who are fussy about their hair, and also to those who aren't because the smell alone is a definitive selling-point!
