I don't know about you but I'm sick of beer reviews so just for a change I'm doing an op about shampoo. I know what you're thinking, what would a baldy old git like proxam know about hair care products? Very little as it happens but hey....how hard can it be. And just to set the record straight I'm not bald - not yet, anyway!Once every couple of months or so I like to wash my hair, whether it needs it or not, and the product I like to use is....whatever I can lay my hands on. My wife changes her brand of shampoo as often as most men change their underwear but right now her preferred brand is Nicky Clarke Thickening Shampoo.
It comes in an aluminium, cylindrical bottle (300ml) disguising the colour and look of the contents which makes me wonder what they've got to hide. Oh wait, it states on the bottle that the design protects the delicate essences from light. Yeah right. It also states that the bottle is recyclable so that's got to be good for the planet then, eh?
On opening and pouring, it turns out that it's clear with a very pale blue tint to it and a pleasant fruity aroma.
It washes your hair.But wait, that's not all. It also claims to nourish, and add volume to fine, flyaway, thinning hair. Hmmm
They even supply you with instructions (presumably for first-time hair washers):
Massage into scalp
If it comes into contact with eyes rinse immediately!
I would have said soap but it's a bit more complicated than that. In fact it looks more like the recipe for Pringle crisps than something to wash your hair with! The list of ingredients practically takes up half the bottle and some of the words have 27 letters in them so I'm not going to list them here, suffice to say - DONT DRINK IT.
* What's In It? *
There's even a website extolling the virtues of Mr. Clarke's products:
Well it gets your hair clean and leaves it smelling nice, so in that respect it works. Speaking from personal experience I don't think it does much to thicken your hair. I expect most of all that hype is just...hype.
My wife swears by it but then she always did have a colourful turn of phrase!
* UPDATE *I took a short break while writing this to visit the shops on a totally unrelated matter. Being the completely thorough, investigative opinion writer that I am, I took a quick look in Superdrug to establish the cost of this product. I was totally STAMMYGASTERED! £3.99!!! That's right FOUR BLOOMIN' QUID!
So until next time, when I'll be starting a series of LUSH ops.........
Thanks for reading
