FINISH WHAT I STARTED (SHAMPOO EDITION)

Here they are, three (yes, three) shampoo empties of the month.

1 CLAIROL HERBAL ESSENCES BREAK’S OVER
Claimed to be an anti breakage strengthening shampoo, I did experience not too much of hair fall at shampoo time. What I love about it is the clear texture, as I’m totally not a big fan of creamy shampoo which I believe will make my hair limp. It foams well, too. What I don’t like about this shampoo is the scent. It’s too overpowering and it doesn’t smell like lavender (it was written on the bottle) at all. Repurchase? Mmmm…maybe.

2 THE BODY SHOP RAINFOREST SHINE SHAMPOO
Another clear shampoo, perfect for me. I count on this shampoo when I feel like my hair is getting slightly dry on the ends. As I really have oily scalp and hair, I used this as weekly shampoo. The scent is very natural, of course and has medium foaming factor. After my hair is dry, I can see it looks more shiny and feels very light. Repurchase? Yes.

3 KIEHL’S TEA TREE OIL SHAMPOO
I used this twice a week, due to its’ effectiveness to zap the oil on my scalp and hair. Less scented and less foamy unlike other shampoos I’ve tried. Oh, and more expensive too. But it’s really worth it, because it really works for oily hair owner. I recommend not to use it everyday as it can over dry and don’t forget to use conditioner on the ends afterwards. Repurchase? Yes. 

WHY I LOVE THIS SHAMPOO

It’s impossible not to wash my hair every day. Not only the climate to blame, but I’ll point directly to the oily scalp (if you have oily skin, most probably you’ll have oily scalp as well). Not to mention, the amount of hair styling products like mousse and hairspray that I used.

So, it’s important for me to find a perfect shampoo that will get rid of that oil and build ups every single day. Why I love Clairol Herbal Essence Drama Clean Refreshing Shampoo?
– It smells great. I love the fruity bubbly smell (they said it’s a fusion of citrus blossom and green tea), which actually reminds me of my favorite drink, pineapple juice. And the scent seems to last long.
– It does what it said. Drama Clean. It cleans really well, I can feel my hair ultra light every time I finished washing it. It doesn’t leave any sticky and moisturizing feel at all.
– When my naturally straight hair dries without the help of hair dryer, it does look like it has more volume and shine. Considering my really fine hair needs a boost, this shampoo is my savior when I don’t have time to style my hair with mousse and hair spray.
– The 700 ml bottle with a reasonable price point for an imported product that I can easily get at the grocery store near my house. Remember, I don’t live in the US.  

Recommended? Yes, if you have oily scalp and avid user of hair styling products that can leave build ups. But if you have dry hair, try using this shampoo only once a week, just to get rid of build ups. And never ever forget to use conditioner.
