Here it is! The long awaited second shampoo review. And when I say long awaited, I mean it’s taken me a long time to get around to writing it, not that you’ve been looking forward to reading it.
As the more intelligent of you may have noticed, the shampoo (and conditioner. Feeling a bit sorry for the conditioner now, I keep forgetting to mention it. The Shampoo and Conditioner Review isn’t as catchy though, is it?) I’m using at the moment is Alberto Balsam in Blueberry. This is one of my go-to shampoo/ conditioners, because it does what it says on the not-all-that-interesting-bottle.
I’m gona dive right into this and say that these are probably the best smelling shampoo’s and conditioners in the world. The Blueberry one, I swear, has Shloer in it, because that is exactly what it smells like. There are loads of different scents of Alberto Balsam. Loads, and they each promise to do a different thing- strengthen, protect, add shine, add volume- but honestly? They just smell different. I’ve tried Tea Tree, Coconut and Lychee, Apple and Blueberry (which I’m using at the moment) and probably a load more that I can’t remember.
Sorry about the half empty (or half full, depending on how you look at life, apparently) bottles, like I said, it’s taken me a while to get round to doing this post. Actually, they aren’t even half empty, there’s nothing left. OH WELL. So basically, the shampoo: It will clean your hair and make it smell nice. And the smell actually lasts, which I love. My hair doesn’t tend to feel particularly soft or shiny or strong or anything after using it, but it will do a damn good job of shampoo-ing your hair. The packaging is nothing special- it’s simple and it gets to the point, and I think the only unique selling point is the colour of the actual product inside- particularly with the shampoo, which is a gel like consistency and I guess that makes it easier to colour. One thing that this has got that the previous shampoo I reviewed hadn’t, is that the shampoo and conditioner actually look different, as shampoo and conditioner should, and most or the time, do. 7/10. Read my last post about shampoo and conditioner for a better explanation of what I’m rambling on about here.
This conditioner isn’t amazing. It’s pretty much bog-standard, absolutely nothing fancy – it will make your hair tangle-free and soft, and that’s that. It’s also a really thin consistency, which can be pretty tricky, but once it’s on your hair it’s fine. Just make sure you don’t get any water inside the bottle! One good thing about this being a not so great conditioner., though, is that I use it as a leave in conditioner and it doesn’t make my hair oily- just smooth and shiny. It has a great colour, for a conditioner, and again, smells absolutely bloody lovely. 6/10.
Alright, probably not the most amazing product I’ve ever used, but it’s staying firmly in my top-5 because it’s so practical. It does what it says on the not-all –that-interesting-bottle, to quote myself. And my hair seems to smell nice for days afterwards (I only wash my hair once every three or four days. Don’t cringe, it doesn’t need anymore and it’s bad for your hair to wash it every day). Definitely one to try- really cheap and available form most supermarkets and cosmetic/ toiletry shops.
Thanks for reading, leave me comment if you have any questions!
