Today I thought that I would do another first impressions post. And this time it is for another Shampoo and Conditioner. The product in question is Superdrug own brand, Avocado and Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner, let’s do this.
So, I never actually had any intention of trying this one, but a few weeks ago I was picking up some toiletries in Superdrug (I was out of Conditioner and dry shampoo) and received a travel sized set of these products for free. Then when I went to Cardiff a couple of weeks ago, I thought that I might as well take them with me and give them a go. Save having to take full sized items with me or pay for smaller ones. So, here are my thoughts on it.
The first thing that I am going to say about it is that I hate the scent. Like really fucking hate it. with a passion. I just really do not like it. to the extent that even if this product had been the best shampoo and conditioner in the world, I wouldn’t use it. I hate the smell that much. I just find it really unpleasant.
Apart from my hatred of the scent, the actual product is so so. The shampoo is alright. It does the job. Although it did take a fair bit of work to get it to lather up in the first place. You really needed to work it. but once it worked, it did the job well enough. It cleaned my hair. The conditioner on the other hand, wasn’t so good. It didn’t really condition my hair at all. I used the whole bottle in one go but it really didn’t do much. In fact, I think my hair may have felt dryer after using this, then it did before! It just wasn’t for me.
And for the most part, it didn’t really do anything for my hair. It left my hair feeling really heavy and limp. And it went grease really quickly. I can usually get 3 to 4 days out of my hair. 2 days down, 2 days up. This barely made it to day to. It just made my hair go really greasy and gross, really quickly.
But, overall, it was alright, especially considering that I got it for free. I am not going to run out to get some anytime soon, but, if I am ever in a pinch, I know that these aren’t the worst thing in the world. Have you tried these yet? What did you think about it? does it work better for you than it did for me? I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon.
