“ Brand: Umberto Giannini / Type: Body & Hair Shampoo / Suitable for: Body & Hair „
I bought this a while ago on a random spree in Boots. I was looking for new hair products and I always want something to give my hair extra volume so this seemed like a good option. The Umberto Giannini range was on offer at the time sovI picked up the shampoo, matching conditioner and a smoothing cream for £10. The usual price is £5.29.
It comes in a purple bottle with a tall domed gold lid which looks quite phallic to be perfectly honest, as my boyfriend pointed out in not so many words! I think it looks nice but it's not really practical at all as it doesn't have a flip top or press top lid, it just pours straight out of the bottle which means it's not that easy to control how much you get out and can easily waste loads.
The shampoo is quite thick in consistency and makes a thick lather very quickly. It feels really refreshing as I massage it in and it rinsed out quickly. It has a very fresh scent with a hint of fruitiness but to me it seems mainly a fresh marine type scent.
After I've used it my hair feels fresh and light and looks clean and healthy, but I don't think it looks as shiny as usual which is a shame especially as it makes me wonder what it's actually doing to my hair. My hair feels quite smooth and soft but there is no sign of any extra body even after styling so I don't feel it lives up to it's name.
All in all I really don't think this shampoo is worth the money at all, the packaging is impractical, it dulls my hair and it doesn't give any of the promised body or volume. Not recommended.
