I used to think, that shampoo is shampoo, is shampoo, as long as it washes your hair, right? Well, I have proven myself wrong. Maybe this is the case if you have untreated, natural hair, but as soon as I started to dye my hair bright colors, I have started noticing the difference. I was sure it is all in my head until we travelled to Italy, and I forgot to pack my shampoo and conditioner. I used the cheap supermarket brand (I assume) shampoo, and it stripped color out of my hair within a week. Needless to say, I am more carefull what I use on my hair now. I seem to like most of products I pick up recently, as we can tell from the pile of the bottles waiting to be recycled. Please note, that the empty bottles is essentially trash, so I didn’t exactly try very hard snapping the pictures. They are mostly here for your reference if you would like to try something.
I can't tell you why exactly, but I really seem to like this brand's products. It might be the smell, it might be the price point, the effect it leaves on my hair or all those factors combined. I went through quite a few bottles of their products.
I really liked this duo, it smells georgeous, it leaves your hair clean, but not squeaky clean, adds shine, and moisturizes. I will be repurchasing it at some point down the line, but now I want to experiment with some other ones.
This one smells even better, I could even argue it smells like caramel machiato just without the coffe if that makes any sense. Consistency is very thick, and product helps to keep your hair color fresher. Again, totally worth repurchasing but just not right now.
Although I tend to like most of the Tigi products, I found this one very meh. I wasn't overly keen on the scent, and I didn't see any noticable effect. It wasn't a torture to use it up, but I won't be buying this one again.
I quite enjoyed this shampoo as well, I really like the scent, and it moisturized hair very well, but it started to weigh them down along the road. I would maybe repurchase it when/if my hair will start drying out again, but I want to give Giovanni or Paul Mitchell (both cruelty free) a go.
I have only went throught the travel size (60ml) of this conditioner, but I feel like this is enough to judge a product from, and unfortunately, I felt like it does absolutely nothing for my hair, so I won't be repurchasing it.
I was looking for a shampoo without sulphates in it, in naive hopes that it would help me keep my bright colours longer, but, appearently, that's just a myth according to beauty brains. Despite that, I still really liked both the shampoo and the mask, it smells divine and leaves your hair soft and bouncy. I totally plan on repurchasing both of them at some point.
I bet you anything, that there were more bottles of dry shampoo along the road, but it didn’t make it to the empties container. I like Batiste dry shampoo, I find it absorbs oil very well, and make your hair look freshly washed for at least one day. As a person who find it a struggle to get out of the bed in the mornings on some days, yet alone take a shower, this is a life saver. However, I would like to try some other brands, and I have been always wanting to try COLAB dry shampoos, so I will ask Stumble Puppy to bring me some. If you know any other cruelty free alternatives, please do let me know down in the comments?
