My hair is so fussy this was always going to be a chore.  It gets greasy quite quickly and can also look pretty dull.  I have always used Herbal Essences shampoo but that was out the window at the start of the year.  I have tried quite a few different products since February with mixed reviews, and honestly still don’t think I have found “the one”.  But, I wanted to put something on here shampoo wise so here is an update on what I have tried so far:

Forever Living Aloe Jojoba Shampoo & Conditioner

My biggest problem with this shampoo is it doesn’t lather.  I don’t know about everyone else but I like my shampoo with lots of bubbles to make me feel clean, and this was just a bit meh to be honest.  I didn’t know shampoo could be meh, but this really is……..  I have to be honest and say I think it actually gave me cleaner hair than all the others, but it just didn’t feel right.  I won’t be buying this for my hair again, but apparently it can be good for people with dry scalps, psoriasis etc so worth giving it a try maybe if you have one of these issues.

Paul Mitchell Strength Shampoo and Conditioner

I borrowed/ stole the end of my friends to give this a try.  She loves it, but again just not for me.  I didn’t think it did anything for my hair at all.  I felt my hair was pretty limp and greasy, not really the look I was going for.  So again this is on the not for me pile.  I will need to try some of their other shampoos.  However, must again say my friend loves it so its def right for someone!!!


Faith In Nature Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner  Faith in Nature

So this stuff is weird, it feels like oil, not the usual feel of shampoo.  It does lather, maybe not as good as Herbal Essences, but it does lather.  So that is one tick, at least in the shower I feel like my hair is clean.  However, again it is just not great.  I really really want to like it and for now it will definitely do, but it is still not what I really want.  And my mother very kindly told me the other week, after using this for a month that my hair looked like crap, although to be fair it was in the morning before washing.  But still on the morning of day 2 I want my hair to look better than crap!!!  I have heard their Rosmary shampoo is good so will have to give it a try and see if it is any better.


Generally I feel a bit rubbish about this blog post as all the others have had a hooray at the end, but this is just a bit watch this space.  I just really wanted to give some options to people to try for themselves as everyone and their hair is different!  Let me know if you have tried any of these, or better yet if you have found “the one” I would love to hear what it is!!!

I promise to have a more positive post next time 🙂
