Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Aussie’s Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner with wild peach extract. These two hair products for “vibrant, coloured hair that refuses to be dull” promise a gentle cleanse to make sure colour is retained and hair is extra shiny.

I think the shampoo is decent. I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair and my scalp well. It doesn’t feel drying and the fragrance is alright (nice enough, generic, forgettable). In summary, this is an average shampoo.

The conditioner is below average. It helps detangle my hair in the shower, but it doesn’t make my hair feel soft or silky. I’ve never had dry hair, but thanks to this conditioner I think I’m halfway there!

In addition to the dryness, I’ve also noticed that my hair hasn’t been as glossy as usual. So based on my experience I’d say that these 2 products don’t deliver on their promise at all, and I won’t be buying them again. If you think these products are good, I recommend you try other products. Cheap brands like Alberto Balsam do much better products!

Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo (300ml) & Conditioner (250ml) are available for £4.19 each. I paid £1.95 each (special offer).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Purifying Shampoo

Hi there! Today’s post is about Sukin‘s Purifying Shampoo.

This shampoo, which is aimed at daily washers and all hair types, contains lots of natural ingredients like aloe vera leaf juice (which is listed as the 2nd ingredient), nettle, horsetail and burdock.

The product promises to cleanse, nourish and soften any type of hair, and to be gentle on sensitive scalps.

I’ve used the shampoo for a few times now, and I think it’s OK.

This shampoo doesn’t contain SLS, but it lathers up well. However, it doesn’t feel very cleansing, so this isn’t the best shampoo for post-gym use (believe me, I tried).

The fragrance is very sukin (= the product smells like the sum of its ingredients which is nice).

I will continue to use this shampoo once a week (and followed by a deep conditioner). However, I don’t love it, and I don’t think I’ll miss it once it’s gone, so I won’t be buying it again.

If you’re interested, Sukin‘s Purifying Shampoo is available as 50ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1l. Sukin also offers a matching conditioner.

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo & Conditioner With Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo and Conditoner with Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom. These 2 products are aimed at people with dull and tired hair, and they promise to restore gloss and shine. I’ve been using these products on and off since the beginning of April, and here’s what I think.

The shampoo cleanses my hair and my scalp well, and the cherry blossom fragrance is really lovely. It’s my favourite Garnier hair care fragrance so far. 🙂

The conditioner is very good. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky. I can’t comment on whether it makes my hair extra shiny, but I’m really happy with the conditioner!

I would recommend these 2 hair care products to everyone who’s looking for a shampoo and conditioner combo that makes hair feel soft and silky. If you have long, curly / wavy or dry hair, you really should give these products a try. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo and Conditoner with Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom are available as 400ml each for £2 each (Poundworld).

Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dr. Organic Bioactive Haircare Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo & Conditioner. These 2 products claim to be be vegan & cruelty-free. The shampoo and conditioner are aimed at all hair types, and they promise to nourish hair.

How’s the shampoo? I’m pleasantly surprised. The shampoo is SLS-free, but it lathers up perfectly, and it feels clarifying. Nice! It smells more like lemons than aloe vera, but that’s not too much of an issue for me.

And the conditioner? This one’s difficult. I think this is actually a reasonable conditioner – even for long hair. But it’s also by far the worst smelling conditioner I’ve ever had. It smells like an old hair brush! The smell doesn’t linger, but who wants to condition their hair with something that smells like greasy + dirty hair? 🤢 Having said that, I appreciate that (because of the natural ingredients) fragrances can differ from batch to batch…

Based on my experience I would recommend the shampoo. If you’d like to try the conditioner, I recommend you give it a sniff before you buy it.

Dr. Organic Bioactive Haircare Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 75ml and 265ml each. I paid £1 each for the 75ml travel size bottles (special offer). The full size products are just over £6 each.

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner.

This product, which contains arginine and is aimed at people with fragile hair, promises to reinforce hair fibres without weighing hair down.

As a result, L’Oréal promises intensely nourished, super soft and stronger hair.

I’ve used this deep conditioner for a few times now, and I think it’s great. It’s easy to use, it detangles my hair perfectly, it smells lovely, and it makes my hair feel sensationally soft. And despite all that, it doesn’t flatten my hair. Wow!

However, there’s one problem. It appears L’Oréal discontinued the entire Triple Resist collection. I’m surprised because I thought this was one of L’Oréal’s most popular collections.

If you’d like to try L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner, you have to be quick. I got this one from Home Bargains (and it was 99p, I think).

TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve never (!) used TRESemmé hair care products until I tried their Nourish & Renew Deep Conditioning Masque last year. I really liked the mask (I finished it last month), so I thought I should try a few more products from this brand. And today I’m reviewing TRESemmé’s Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Shampoo & Conditioner.

TRESemmé’s Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Shampoo is a creamy white shampoo. It’s not the most clarifying shampoo – I guess that’s why it’s so gentle on coloured hair. But I do like the shampoo’s soapy-floral fragrance!

TRESemmé’s Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Conditioner is alright. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes it feel soft. However, the conditioner doesn’t smell as good as the shampoo (it smells like a mix of the matching shampoo + dirt).

I’ve noticed that, when I use these 2 products for more than 3 days in a row, my hair ends up being greasy after 24 hours. I wash my hair every morning, no matter what. So in theory I shouldn’t have to worry about what my hair’s like immediately before I wash it. However, I’m not used to having greasy hair because I wash my hair daily. And I wash my hair daily because I don’t want to have greasy hair…

Anyhoo, because of the grease issue I’ve made changes to my hair care routine. I’m now using these TRESemmé products for 2 consecutive days, then I switch to another shampoo & conditioner combo for 2 days. This seems to work (but it’s not perfect).

I won’t buy these 2 products again, but if you have dry hair, these products might be just what you need. TRESemmé’s Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 900ml each. I paid £2.69 each (half price offer).

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products that I’ve been using since December – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil. These products are cruelty-free, and they were made in Canada!

I don’t have dry hair. I bought these products because I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s Keratin products and their Argan Oil products. And now that I’ve been using the Macadamia Oil products for a few weeks now, let me tell you if they’re equally good. 🙂

The shampoo is very nice. It feels wonderful. I’d describe the formula as creamy, dreamy and soothing. However, the shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel oily at all. It makes my hair and scalp feel cleansed and nourished at the same time. Awesome!

The conditioner is just as lovely. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky without making it feel or look oily. It’s definitely in my all-time top 10 of conditioners!

I think these 2 products are wonderful. And I would recommend them to everyone! Oh, and in case you’re wondering… these two products smell like a mix of shea butter and coconut water.

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil are available as 473ml each for about £1. If you want to try Daily Defense’s awesome products, you need to swing by your local bargain stores!
