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!

My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set

Hi there! A few days ago I swung by my local B&M Bargains store. I saw a My Little Pony toiletries set – and then I remembered that I bought one last year! This year’s toiletries set looks a little different, but it’s probably quite similar because it also contains 4 travel-sized (75ml) hair and body products. So read on to find out if the My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set is any good. 🙂

Let’s start with the bath bubbles! The Pinkie Pie bath gel smells of fresh green apples. I’m not really into apple-scented hair and body products because they usually don’t smell very natural. However, this apple fragrance is actually very well done. I like it!

The Fluttershy bath gel smells of mixed berries. It’s not too sweet which is nice. The berry fragrance reminds me of the flavour of M&S’ new Connie Caterpillar Berry Gums!

The Rainbow Dash shower gel smells like mixed yellow fruits. It’s not the most special fragrance, but it’s pleasant. The shower gel is also super gentle!

The Rarity shampoo doesn’t lather up very well, but it’s suprisingly clarifying. But the best thing is the fragrance. The shampoo smells of sweet and juicy raspberries. Delicious!

I paid £3.99 for this My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set. This year’s My Little Pony toiletries set is £3.99 as well. I would definitely recommend the set!

Gliss Ultimate Colour Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a shampoo and conditioner combo that I’ve been using for 2 weeks now – Gliss Hair Repair Ultimate Colour Shampoo & Conditioner. These 2 products with liquid keratin and uva + uvb filters promise colour protection and extra shine for coloured hair.

So… how’s the shampoo? It’s fantastic! The shampoo makes my hair feel sensationally soft. And I love how it feels on my head when I wash my hair. It’s pretty much as amazing as L’Oréal’s Restore 5 Extreme shampoo!

And the conditioner? I think the conditioner is quite good. It helps me detangle my hair without weighing it down, and I have no complaints about the conditioner. However, it doesn’t have that amazingness that she shampoo has…

What else? These 2 products smell lovely! The fragrance is similar to Gliss’s Liquid Silk fragrance, but the Ultimate Colour fragrance smells a little more floral and a bit darker. Very nice! I’m also happy that these 2 products help maintain my hair’s natural shine. All in all, I’m hapy with these products, and I’ll buy them again!

Gliss Hair Repair Ultimate Colour Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available for 99p at a number of bargain stores. I got these 2 Gliss products from B&M Bargains.

L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the detanling sprays I picked up a few months ago – L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray.

I found this product at one of the local Poundstores. It was £1 only, so I thought I’d be stupid not to buy it.

Anyway, this leave-in product is aimed at people with unruly and fine to normal hair. It promises instant detangling and super smooth hair. Sounds great.

But is the product any good? Well, I didn’t like it, so I gave it away. Here’s why…

I don’t think this detangling spray is very effective. It didn’t help detangle my hair at all, so it doesn’t do what it says on the bottle!

I also don’t like the fragrance because it’s quite strong. It’s a synthetic “pink” fragrance that annoyed me instantly. I’m sure many women love the fragrance. I’m just not one of them.

And here’s the best (=worst) bit. This detangling spray seems to straighten hair. This is surely great if you already have straight hair. But if you have wavy to curly hair, this spray just ruins your hairdo.

So yeah, I didn’t like this detangling spray at all. I passed it on to a relative – she has straight hair, and she uses detangling sprays in general, so I hope she likes this product.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care post for you today! A little while ago I found L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner at my local Tesco.  I had never seen this hair care combo before, so I just bought it. And now I’ve finally gotten around to try these products, so let me tell you if they’re any good. 🙂

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo for very damaged and dry hair is very nice. It feels gentle, and I do believe that it has hair repairing powers. This shampoo feels great on my head, and it makes my hair feel super soft.

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Conditioner is just as nice. This conditioner is one of the best L’Oréal conditioners. It detangles my hair with ease, and I swear I can feel that this conditioner repairs my hair. It’s really good! Well done, L’Oréal!

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for about £4.50 each at Tesco’s (I’ve never seen them anywhere else). I bought these 2 hair care products on a BOGOF deal. 🙂

TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Nourish & Renew Deep Conditioning Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about TRESemmé’s Renewal Hair & Scalp Nourish & Renew Deep Conditioning Masque which I found at one of the bargain stores.

This “professional quality” deep conditioning masque with tea tree extract and sunflower seed oil promises to help repair hair to make it soft and manageable.

You’re supposed to use this product like a regular conditioner. However, you need to leave this product on for 2-3 minutes before you rinse it out.

Alright! So is this product any good? I think this deep conditioning masque is quite alright. It’s not ground-breaking, and it’s not as good as my favourite regular conditioners.

However, I enjoy using it on a weekly basis because it does make my hair feel soft without greasing it up.

All in all, I think this is a reasonable hair mask. I paid £1 for the 180ml tube which is, without doubt, good value.
