I have written about my transition to natural hair a few times now and I have mentioned a few hair products I have been using. Well, I have a few more products to tell you about. Say hello to the Shea Moisture Hair Products Range.

SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo is a clarifying hair care treatment specially designed to gently cleanse and remove product build-up. It hydrates hair from deep within, so your dry, brittle and coarse tresses become smooth, frizz-free, and enviously bouncy.

This conditioner is perfection in a bottle. Its unique formula is made with raw Shea Butter that deeply penetrates while restoring dry scalp and hair. It has Sea Kelp for mineral-rich nutrition that seals and smoothes hair cuticles, while Argan Oil restores shine and helps promote hair elasticity. The result is a deep conditioning hair care treatment that helps restore health and shine to over-processed hair, to ensure your strands are soft, shiny, moisturized and resilient.

This Restorative Hair Care formula is completely sulfate-free, parabens-free, and coluor-safe. Use it as a leave-in or rinse out conditioner that detangles, moisturizes, repairs and restores lifeless, damaged hair.

Product Review: Zerreau Towel Off Strawberry Shampoo Foam

Towel Off Shampoo Foam Picture

I pay special attention to my hairstyles as you may have noticed already. I like to change my look every now and again, so I am always rocking 1 wig or hair extensions. Sometimes I struggle to find the time in between these hairstyles  to give my hair a good wash. Sometimes my wigs may need a good clean but I may not have the luxury of time to give it a good wash and let it dry. So when this Zerreau Towel Off Strawberry Shampoo Foam landed on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.

Zerreau Shampoo is a new shampoo that cleans your hair without water. It is not a leave in product and it is not a wash out product. It is nicely in between, all you have to do is towel dry.

Here is what the brand has to say about this product:

Zerreau is a new shampoo that cleans your hair without using water! It’s a towel-off wet foam that really cleans effectively. It also removes odours and ‘product’ such as hairspray, wax and gels. Zerreau leaves you with soft, clean, luscious locks wherever  you are!

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. The Strawberry Shampoo smells amazing.
  2. It is super convenient. All you have to do is spray, massage in and damp with a towel. It is great for when you are in a rush, on holidays, swimming, out and about on hot sweaty days, or when you just don’t have the patience or time for a proper wash.
  3. It cleans the hair perfectly. My hair felt very clean after using this shampoo.
  4. It can also be used on wigs and hair extensions.
  5. I love the packaging. So pretty and compact, easy to pop in a handbag or suitcase.
  6. It is available at Amazon, Superdrug, Sainsbury’s and Chemist Direct. Prices usually start from £3.99.
  7. It comes with a pump which is so handy.
  8. No alcohol or parabens.

Product Review – Bio-Oil*

Are you into Body Oils like I am? If yes, then you should read this review.

I was introduced to Bio-Oil by a friend when I was at the University many moons ago. I fell in love with the body oil, and I have used it every day as part of my skin care routine. I mix some of the Bio-Oil with my mosituriser in a jar, and use everyday. Sometimes I apply the Bio-Oil directly to my skin after a shower.

My thoughts…

  7. The Bio-Oil leaves my skin smooth, shiny, soft and supple.

CONS

None.

 

The Bio-Oil performs just as promised, and that is why I have been a dedicated customer for years. However, I will be trying other body and hair oils. I have a few that have caught my eye and I shall be exploring them further. If you are in need of a body oil that performs brillantly, try the Bio-Oil, you would love it.

Have you tried the Bio-Oil? What are your thoughts? Which body oil are you currently loving?
