Hmm...i thought the tag line to 'take it as red' shampoo (the title of my opinion) was rather funny, and although nothing to do with the product is proof that sex sells and a vain attempt to attract people to my opinion. Bwahahahahahah (evil laugh)'Take it as red' is the line of Nicky Clarke's new 'Color Therapy' range that i, as a 'red head' 'gingernut' 'ginja-ninja' 'carrot top' etc etc use. It also comes in 'goodenss gracious', 'sweet as chocolate' and one for blonde haired people (sorry, can't remember the name). As well as the shampoo, there is also conditioner, controlling balm (for blow drying) as well as wax. A few of my friends have used these products and have unanimously voted in favour.
Obviously, it is for use on red hair, but i can't see it doing any harm to brown/dark haired people should they desire reddish undertones or a bit of a firey spark. Don't expect miracles - this stuff can't turn your hair pillar box red or even alter the shade, but it will provide a warm 'glow'. This is acheived through herbal extracts such as henna, carrot and ginger (!!) as well as silk to condition the hair.'Take it as red' Shampoo seems to contain a lot of impressive sounding herbal gubbins. However these do seem to work and make my hair smell divine. The scent is flowery yet spicy. Nicky's copy writers describe it as 'clarysage, geranium and cyclamen on a vanilla and coconut base' adn i think this a good description, although i haev no idea what clarysage or cyclamen are and think they sound like some form of poison can personally vouch that they are not!
It comes with a press down top to open and shut the bottle, so it won't become watered down in the shower. The shampoo is a dark, treacly red and looks like it will stain your fingers, but fear not - it doesn't! It comes in a 250ml bottle, for about £5. Although this is expensive for a shampoo, it is average for a product by the 'designer hairdressers' and in my opinion, stands out from others by offering the colour enhancement whilst still being kind to the hair. It is also included in the '3 for 2 designer hair care' offer currently at Boots, so you can buy a range of 'take it as red' products for an allround experiance! Having said that, very similar porducts are available much cheaper, such as ASDA's own brand henna shampoo/conditioner.
