Overwhelmed with hair stuff!

For the past couple of weeks I have been trying out the new John Frieda Root Awakening after picking it up in a 3 for 2 offer in Boots (I need to do a proper review of this very soon) especially since in the past week I have accumulated not one, not two but FOUR new shampoo/conditioner sets to review.

So over the next few weeks I will be reviewing them all – giving each one at least a full week (possibly two, depending how it all goes) of use before I decide what I think.

But I thought I would do a quick ‘first impressions’ post before the full reviews…plus it will be a bit of a sneaky peak as to what’s coming soon!

John Frieda Root Awakening shampoo/conditioner and root spray – first impressions, like the fresh smell, hair is left very soft and my scalp seems to like this.

Tigi Urban Antidotes shampoo/conditioner – first impressions, love the smell leaves hair squeaky clean after the shampoo.

Herbal Essences Seductively Straight shampoo/conditioner/leave in heat protection spray – first impressions, leaves hair seriously smooth and silky.

Pantene Aqua Light shampoo/conditioner/leave in mist– first impressions, very different to the normal Pantene, leaves hair both silky smooth and feeling light/not weighed down.

There is also another set that I had a preview of at The Body Shop event on Friday – I will also add this to the list shortly.

So it’s going to be a busy few weeks for hair posts! As there is only so much messing around my hair can take so I have roped in some willing volunteers to help with the process. But I will be aiming for a weekly blog post on my/my volunteer’s thoughts after a week of use for each set of products.

    Really looking forward to the reviews, esp the root awakening spray. I’ve been wondering whether to buy it or not.

    Looking forward to reading more about them, especially the Herbal Essences and the Pantene ones.
