Hope you all are having a lovely day.
I was recently given the chance to trial some Alison Claire Shampoo and conditioner* samples. Alison Claire Natural Beauty stocks natural products which include organic skin care and shampoos.
They came in a lovely bag and the sample sizes were a great size. I've finished both of these completely now with means it's review time!
I've been trying out the Lemon shampoo and conditioner which is for oily hair types. I am certainly an oily hair type. My roots start to get oily on the third day of washing my hair sometimes even the second. My hair as I have mentioned previously is long and thick so considering that I've used these sample about 5 times I think.
The Lemon Shampoo (£12) - The full size bottle is of 200ml. This shampoo smells really nice. Very zesty and fresh. It's not too strong but subtle. A lot of the times lemon based shampoos can make your scalp very dry because it tackles the oils but this one doesn't make my scalp dry. It stills controls the oil and make my hair appear less oily at the roots but doesn't give that 'squeaky clean' feel which I think is terrible! Makes my hair feel light and clean which is what I look for in a shampoo. It also gets rid of any build up that may be present, again because of the lemon. The only thing that I didn't like was that I found it hard to lather it up. I had to add alot of water into it to make it 'foamy' as without that my hair stays how it was. But I know when shampoos are organic and natural they don't lather up which is indeed a good thing.
The Lemon Conditioner (£12) - This also comes in a 200ml bottle. I really loved this conditioner. It made my hair soft and silky. It also helped it to appear less frizzy as it almost tamed it. The lemon fragrance is quite energetic and fresh just like shampoo. It made my hair easier to brush out too because I usually have tangled hair after washing it. It's a nice product if you want manageable and soft hair!
