I don't get to shop in Boots quite as often as I'd like these days due to the fact there isn't one in close proximity, though as I recently cashed in some points on a survey site and opted for Boots vouchers I made the effort to go into town to spend them.
As well as buying some pampering treats for myself I also bought some basic products such as this shampoo for the whole family to use, which I will now review..
The shampoo comes housed in a basic - but I hastened to add not 'cheap' looking - plastic bottle. The bottle is upright standing and curves in towards the neck whilst the plastic material it is made of is quite thin and totally transparent. There is a single sticker which wraps around the centre and has the product name and all the relevant information is contained on the back. The contents can be clearly seen and the shampoo itself looks rich and thick whilst the colour is a very warm and apt honey.As mentioned this is a Boots own product so is available from their stores and web site costing just £0.91.
My experience of using this~
To access the shampoo there is a fairly sturdy but very easy to open flip top lid which is placed directly on top of the bottle. As soon as I opened the lid there was a rather strong honey aroma which emitted from the bottle and I was surprised for a 'bargain' shampoo at how strong this seemed to be.
My first impressions to be brutally honest were not very good. On trying to get some kind of lather going my hair felt pulled and tangled and not very healthy so I wasn't looking forward to the overall effect it was going to leave it in.
I decided the best plan of action was to use another blob of the shampoo to see if that would help and to my joy that extra amount made it lather up wonderfully!
I was dreading rinsing my hair as all through the washing process it felt dragged and pulled and though it would be left very dry. I was quite amazed when I did actually rinse it to find my hair felt smoother and softer as I really didn't hold out much hope during the washing stage.
I did find I needed to use a conditioner though but I always do as I have coloured and slightly dry hair so that's not a negative to the shampoo - it's the routine I always follow.
My hair amazingly felt in very good condition once it was dry and fell into shape with minimum effort whilst not being *too* soft that it couldn't be styled accordingly so I was very impressed there.Recommended?~
For me it is something I have been using now and again as though it leaves the hair feeling in good condition afterwards I really am not impressed with how 'rough' it feels on the hair whilst shampooing so I have to deduct a star there I'm afraid.
My overall feelings about the shampoo is it's fantastic value, very economical as we are a family of 4 and have been using it a few weeks and there is still 1/4 of the contents left, but for people with hair that is on the dry side I would recommend using a more moisturising shampoo and using this occasionally as I have been doing.
The lovely honey fragrance seemed to linger on my hair for several hours and as I have long (ish) hair I kept noticing it when my hair was down so it scores points on the fragrance and it also left my hair and scalp feeling thoroughly cleansed till my next hair wash.
