Revisiting Old Favourites – Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner. I used to like these products very much, but with new products being launched all the time, I haven’t gotten around to revisit these old favourites in years – until now! And here’s what I think!

Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo is lovely! It does feel like liquid silk, and the amazing fragrance (like a mix of silk and velvet) is just perfect. I’m enjoying this shampoo very much.

Gliss Liquid Silk Conditioner is really nice too. It’s not the best conditioner on the planet, but it’s better than average at making my hair feel soft and silky. I also like that the beautiful fragrance lingers in my hair for hours. Nice!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these products. Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo is available as 250ml, the Conditioner is available as 200ml. I paid £1 each (discount store).

Revisiting Old Favourites – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo which I’ve previously used and reviewed – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner. However, I haven’t used these hair care products in years, so I thought now’s a good time to revisit them.

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner promise to reinforce hair fibre, to nourish hair from root to tip, and to make hair feel stronger. These products are aimed at people with fragile hair.

I’m satisfied that the shampoo cleanses my hair and scalp properly but also gently. And the conditioner detangles my hair well. I do think that this shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel stronger. And I’ve noticed that I lose a little less hair in the shower when I use these products. I’m still a big fan!

Keep in mind, these products wont’t help with medical issues that cause or result in hair loss. In such cases, it’s always best to seek medical help – please speak with your GP. 💖

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner have recently been renamed from Triple Resist to Full Resist. Regardless of this, these products are available as 250ml for about £3, and 400ml for £5. I bought the big 400ml bottles on a half price offer.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair care products I’m using at the moment – Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner. I love all things grapefruit, and I Iove big hair too – so I thought I need to try these products asap!

I’m pretty sure that Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner is volumising when used on its own. It feels like it’s roughing up my hair with every wash. The shampoo smells nice from the bottle, but it’s rather bland once it hits the palm of my hand. The fragrance isn’t bad, it’s just… unspectacular.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner detangles my hair with ease, but it also seems to undo the volumising effect of the shampoo. And the fragrance is too boring for my taste.

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t buy these products again. I’ll finish them, but I’ll happily move on to another shampoo and conditioner combo. If you’re interested, Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner are available as 400ml each for £5.99 each. I spent £2.97 each (half price offer).

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo I’m using at the moment – Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. And here’s what I think…

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo is a dream come true. Whilst the creamy white shampoo is boring to look at, it feels amazing on my head and hair. Wow! And then there’s the fragrance which is… unbelievable! 🥰

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner is just as amazing. It’s really effective, and I don’t need much product at all. And again, there’s this insanely beautiful fragrance…

All in all, I think these products are some of the best hair products I’ve ever tried. I didn’t think Herbal Essences would do anything that would come close to its fabulous originals but this shampoo and conditioner combo comes pretty close in terms of quality and fragrance.

My husband also fell in love with the fragrance of this shampoo. He found these for half price at Sainsbury’s a few weeks ago, and he bought himself 3 bottles! Well, what can I say… if you’re not trying these lovely products, it’s your own fault really!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 400ml for £5.99 each. I paid £2.99 each (special offer).

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve been using these hair care products for over 2 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo is clarifying and gentle at the same time. The sunny and fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular but definitely pleasant. I’ve noticed that this shampoo doesn’t cause my hair to get all tangled up, so I don’t have to use much conditioner. This is really nice – and more expensive brands should take note!

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Conditioner was a nice surprise too. The conditioner is very thin, and I thought I’d have to use plenty of it – but no! It’s super effective, and my hair’s enjoying it very much!

As you can see, I’m very happy with my current hair care combo! If you’re interested, Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 350ml each for about 99p each. I bought these 2 products at my local Savers drugstore.

Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the two hair care combos that I’m using at the moment – Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner. These products promise to nourish and protect coloured hair. Are they any good?

I think Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo is really good. It’s a creamy white shampoo. It’s clarifying, but it doesn’t feel harsh at all. The fragrance is very random, but all in all, this is a really good shampoo!

I’m equally happy with Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Conditioner because it detangles my hair with ease. I’ve also noticed that it seems to give my hair a little extra volume which is always welcome! The fragrance is not very special, but I don’t mind this at all.

On the back of the bottles, it also says that these products are vegan and that they were not tested on animals. Good stuff! I would recommend these 2 hair products! Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 300ml each for £1 each (Poundland).

Nutrafix Argan Oil Hair Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Nutrafix Hair Mask With Argan Oil, pro-vitamin B5 and silk protein. This product promises to give hair a natural boost and to leave it hydrated, soft and silky.

The instructions state that this hair mask is meant to be used on towel-dry hair (after washing). You’re supposed to leave the hair mask on for 5 minutes, and you should ideally cover your hair with a warm towel. Then rinse (and condition if you want) and follow with your normal hair routine.

I’ve given this hair mask a try, and I think it’s awful! It turned my hair into a completely unflexible and unmanageable mess, and I had to double-condition (!) my hair to get it back to normal. What a waste of time. And what a waste of water! Oh, and I’ve also lost plenty of hair when I tried to get this rubbish out of my hair. Yikes!

I’ve binned the product after 1 use – but I should have binned it without even opening it! I’ve previously tried another hair mask from this brand, and the result was pretty much the same. Well, I can safely say that I won’t be trying any other poducts from this brand.

However, if you’re interested in this terrible product (maybe you want to prank someone…), Nutrafix Hair Mask With Argan Oil is available as 150ml for £1 (Poundland).

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products I’m using at the moment – L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner. These products contain keratin, vitamins and castor oil, and they’re aimed at people with long hair (Duh!). The shampoo promises to reinforce fragile hair, and the conditioner claims to detangle hair with less breakage.

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo is not great. Whilst I think that the shampoo feels cleansing, it also seems to leave a film behind – I think it might be from the castor oil, but I don’t really know. I’ve noticed that the shampoo tangles up my hair. This isn’t great. And there’s the fragrance – I don’t like the strong and dense fragrance (which reminds me of the questionable hairsprays my mum used in the 80s). All in all, I find the shampoo disappointing.

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner isn’t great either. I don’t like its fragrance, and I don’t think it detangles my hair well. The conditioner has a weird texture, and I need to use quite a bit of product to be able to detangle my hair. And this weighs my hair down! I’m not impressed.

I just looked back at all the hair products I used and finished this year, and this combo is my least favourite! So… I won’t repurchase these 2 products, and I have no interest in trying anything else from L’Oréal’s Dream Lengths collection.

However, if you’re interested, L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.99 each. I paid £2.25 each (special offer).

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care review for you today. I’ve given Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner a try, and here’s what I think. 🙂

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo feels super gentle, so I think it would be best suited to people with dry or damaged hair. The fragrance is gorgeous. It’s warm and cuddly which is very nice!

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Conditioner is good but not great. It smells nice, and it detangles my hair well. I also think it makes my hair feel soft, so I shouldn’t complain. However, this conditioner seems to flatten my hair. I think this one would be most suited to people with unruly hair.

All in all, I like these 2 products, but I’m only using them twice a week (that’s because of the unwanted flattening effect). The other 5 days I’m using something else. But I will happily continue to use these products, and I might buy them again.

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 500ml each for 99p each (Home Bargains).

TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo I picked up for half price – TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner. These 2 products promise frizz control as well as a healthy shine and a soft feel. I’ve been using these products on and off (I have a few shampoo and conditioner combos in a rota) for well over 4 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Shampoo is a creamy white shampoo with an unremarkable yet pleasant fragrance. It lathers up well, and I’m satisfied with its cleansing powers. I have no doubt that this shampoo helps me maintain soft and shiny hair.

TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Conditioner is a good-but-not-great conditioner. It does what it’s supposed to do, but I need to use quite a bit of product.

All in all, I think these 2 products are good. However, I still prefer Daily Defense’s keratin hair products because they’re better in every aspect (feel, scent, result, price).

TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for £4.99 each. I paid £2.69 each (half price offer on the old 500ml bottles).
