Finding the right combination of products to keep my thick hair clean is becoming more of a nightmare. A lot of shampoos just don’t give my hair the care it deserves and when I was offered a bundle of shampoos to try by the Harley Street Clinic, there was no way I was saying no as a student budget does not equal being able to buy new products to try once and then find they don’t work.
I was sent three shampoos along with a selection of testers and there were a couple there that got me really quite excited. The first of these is the Darphin Redness Relief Recovery Cream as my skin ends up very red after I’ve had a shower and this does the trick of calming it down and removing the redness. Unfortunately, due to a citrus allergy, I couldn’t try the Caudalie Overnight Recovery Oil, Caudalie Moisture Recovery Cream or the Sachajuan Hair Cleansing Cream but they all sound great for dry skin and hair that needs a bit of extra care.
This shampoo contains a combination of three oils and a Keratino-Complex in order to make hair softer, nourished and replenished. My hair needs this as I colour my hair and it affects the condition of my hair. This worked wonders on my newly dyed hair and helped make it nice and soft. At just under £7 from FeelUnique I’d say that’s relatively affordable for a branded shampoo.
As soon as I saw that this shampoo was SLS and citrus free I knew this was a shampoo I would love. For those of you that don’t know, SLS (sodium laureth sulphate) is the main ingredient that makes products like shampoo lather but it can be damaging to sensitive skin like mine. Usually, when I wash my hair I still end up with an itchy scalp but this was not the case here. I used this first to fully cleanse my hair and then used the Vichy for my second shampoo (yes I need to shampoo my hair twice) and this left it feeling fantastic. FeelUnique also have this available at just over £8 which is still a great price for a fantastic product.
This shampoo I’ve not tried yet and I do have my reasons. Due to the quantity of hair already on my head and the fact that once I’ve blow dried I look like a lion, I have absolutely no need for a volumising shampoo. However, if you have thin hair then this may be the product for you and it will be making it’s way into my giveaway when I reach all my goals for 2016.
