Alberto Balsam Blends Colour Bright Detangler + UV Filter

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Alberto Balsam Blends Colour Bright Detangler + UV Filter. Since Alberto Balsam’s Colour Bright products are online exclusives, I was happy to pick up this detangler for £1 at Poundworld.

This product promises to provide UV-protection for coloured hair. It also claims to detangle hair with ease and to refresh hair between washes. The description further states that this product nourishes hair to make it feel soft and to make it look shiny.

This detangler is easy to use. Just give it a good shake (to blend the 2 phases) and spray away. Then detangle your hair with your hands or simply brush your hair. Since this product works on wet and dry hair, you can use it anytime you want.

Alright, how’s the product? Sadly, it’s not for me.

The Jericho Rose & Orange scent is way too strong for my liking. Since I wear my hair down, I can smell it all day. This isn’t what I want! However, if you don’t wash your hair very frequently, and you’re worried that your hair might smell funky, you should give this product a try!

What else? This product detangles my hair well and it makes my hair feel super soft (pretty much like baby hair). Whilst I don’t like overly soft hair, I would recommend this product to anyone who’s looking for a leave-in detangling or conditioning spray that helps tame dry or unruly hair.

Alberto Balsam Blends Colour Bright Detangler + UV Filter is available as 150ml. I paid £1, but I’ve seen this product for as much as £4. As always, the price you pay for a product depends on where you shop. 🙂

Gliss Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner. Whilst this hair care combo has been around for ages, I never actually tried it. I guess I favoured the look of the other Gliss products because they’re more colourful. However, I’ve now tried the Total Repair hair products, and here’s what I think.

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo is one of those shampoos that make hair feel super soft. The shampoo smells lovely (similar to all the other Gliss products), and I love that it doesn’t tangle up my hair. This is a great little shampoo!

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Conditioner is very nice too. It makes my hair feel super silky, and a little goes a long way. Gliss did an amazing job with this conditioner. It’s definitely one of their best conditioners!

I have noticed that my hair starts to get a little greasy if I use these products for more than 3 days in a row. So I am now using these products in a 2-1 rota. This means that I use these Gliss products for 2 consecutive days, then I use one of Alberto Balsam’s shampoo and conditioner combos for 1 day, then back to Gliss… and so on.  This 2-1 rota works very well for my hair, and I love how my hair looks and feels. It’s a huge difference compared to the lifeless mess my hair was when I used Herbal Essences’ Cocoa products.

Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml and 200ml, respectively. They’re usually around £1 each, and they can be found in bargain stores such as Poundland, Poundstretcher, B&M Bargains and Home Bargains. I would recommend these products to those who want softer hair, and I think these products will make a difference for people with dry hair. I will definitely buy these products again!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner. It appears that these products are exclusive to Asda, which is where I picked them up when they were on special (2 for £5 offer). Onto the review!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo is quite nice. It’s boring to look at (it’s one of those creamy white shampoos), but it feels cleansing without being harsh. The cocoa fragrance is pleasant, although I would have preferred a more chocolatey fragrance. It’s not Herbal Essences’ fault, but I just expect something chocolatey whenever I read cocoa (am I right, Anne Brooke?)…

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Conditioner is good, but not great. I love Herbal Essences’ original hair products, so I’m expecting this brand to be better than the competition. Whilst this conditioner helps me detangle my hair, and whilst it does make my hair feel soft, I do need quite a bit of product to achieve the desired result. The conditioner smells a bit “darker” than the shampoo. It smells like cocoa powder with a hint of incense. It’s not bad at all, but I really wanted a chocolate-scented hair care combo.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.50 each. I don’t think I’ll repurchase these 2 products, but I wouldn’t mind recommending them to people with normal hair.

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner which I picked up for £1 (Poundland).

This conditioner promises to nourish hair for a more youthful look.

The product is quick and easy to use – use it like any regular conditioner, but leave it on for 2 minutes.

How’s the product? I like it! Whilst I think that Pantene’s Youth Protect shampoo and conditioner aren’t impressive at all, this intensive conditioner is very nice!

I’m not sure about the “youthful” look, but I’m satisfied that this product makes my hair feel super soft. I like it!

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner is available as 200ml. I would definitely recommend it!

Wonder Woman Shower Gel, 2 In 1 Shampoo / Conditioner, Roll-On Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Wonder Woman branded products. These products were manufactured by H&A, a UK-based company that makes products for all sorts of different brands – they even made the Pusheen products I snapped up on Boxing Day!

Moving on… here’s what I’m reviewing today – Wonder Woman Shower Gel, Wonder Woman 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, and Wonder Woman Roll-On Eau De Toilette.

The shampoo is quite nice. It lathers up nicely, and it feels clarifying. The lovely sweet rose and powder fragrance is gorgeous! This product has no conditioning qualities, but that’s OK. I’ve already finished one of these shampoos a little while ago – this is my 2nd bottle! 🙂

I’ve finally tried the shower gel as well. It has the same wonderful sweet rose and powder fragrance, and it doesn’t feel drying. I like it very much!

The eau de toilette roll-on is simply awesome! Again, it has the same sweet rose and powder fragrance as the shampoo and the shower gel, and I think the fragrance smells a lot more sophisticated than what you’d expect from such a cheap item. And the roll-on looks great in my cosmetic bag! 🙂

Wonder Woman Shower Gel and 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 100ml in a set. The Eau De Toilette is available as 8ml roll-on. I paid 50p each (clearance). I’ve also seen a full-size Wonder Woman fragrance (same design, same manufacturer) for £14.99 at Superdrug. I think that was a 30ml bottle (but I’m not entirely sure).

Daily Defense Pomegranate And Vitamin E Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair products I’m using at the moment – Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner. Daily Defense is a Canadian brand, and they state that their products are cruelty-free. This is great! Now let’s focus on the products. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo is very nice. It’s low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly, and it cleanses my hair gently. The fruity fragrance is a bit random, but I like the shampoo very much.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Conditioner is very effective. It detangles my hair with ease, it makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down. Again, the random fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular, but in all other aspects this is a great conditioner which mops the floor with comparable products from brands like Pantene or Garnier.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 473ml each. I paid £1.25 each – a total steal!

Gliss Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner with keratin serum and micro-repair liquids. These products are aimed at people with long hair that’s prone to damage and split ends.

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo is really lovely. It feels great on my head and hair, and I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair gently. I also love the fragrance – it’s similar to Gliss’ Liquid Silk fragrance, just a bit lighter and fruitier. It’s very nice!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner is a very good conditioner. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky without weighing it down. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

I am very happy with these 2 products. After Aussie’s below-average Colour Mate conditioner and L’Oréal’s terrible Fibrology Air anti-conditioner, these 2 Gliss products are a real treat. They make my hair look and feel awesome. My hair is bouncy, soft and glossy. I love it!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available for about £1 each at Poundstores and bargain stores. I would recommend these products to everyone who’s looking for hair products that make hair soft without flattening it. I will definitely buy these hair products again!
