The Quest For Nourished Hair

It's fair to say I've tried a fair few shampoos and conditioners over the last few months, and I've only just got round to finishing them off. I always seem to have a little bit left in each bottle that I never get around to using - just me? So this month, I've made a habit of using them up. Just me? So, for today's post I thought I'd do an empties post dedicated to haircare.

John Frieda Brilliant Shine* ~ I wasn't overly impressed by this duo to be honest. It smelt lovely - like a typical salon product. It lathered really well in my hair, but didn't leave it moisturised nor overly shiny. Would I repurchase? Probably not.

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Conditioner ~ Now, I absolutely love the scent of this conditioner, I think that alone is what sold it to me. This leaves my hair feeling soft as well as easier to manage. Would I repurchase? Definitely.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde* ~ These left my hair feeling really nourished and moisturised, but, unfortunately, verging on greasy. They didn't really smell of anything which was a shame, as I love products that leave my hair smelling amazing. Would I repurchase? Maybe.

VO5 Give Me Moisture ~ The shampoo left my hair feeling rather stripped, so I wouldn't really recommend it if you have hair like mine - dry and curly. However, I did quite like the conditioner, plus I love the scent of these. Would I repurchase? Probably not.

Timotei Golden Highlights Conditioner ~ I really liked this conditioner. It left my hair feeling really soft, but I didn't notice a change in my hair colour at all. (I used this after I had my hair highlighted.) Would I repurchase? Maybe.

Have you tried any of these products?



  1. I love the John Frieda Frizz Ease range as I have incredibly frizzy hair, but to be honest my favourite shampoo/conditioner is a stupidly cheap Coconut & Almond one from Boots own range! It's absolutely amazing and they do a really great leave in conditioner too x

  2. I love Herbal Essences, I use the Ignite My Colour religiously - it smells so good and leaves my hair feeling amazing. Their Bee Strong leave in conditioner is so good too, smells good enough to eat! Such a good range of hair products and so reasonably priced, can't beat it!

  3. Very interesting, great to know a budget shampoo like Herbal Essences gives you great results. I just reviewed the Aveda Dry Remedy range and it is seriously great for treating dry hair!

  4. Super helpful post! I've heard good things about the L'oreal Ever Riche shampoos so maybe you should try those out :)

  5. I haven't tried herbal essences in ageeees so I might be giving them a go again! I love using the lush hair masks, and 'Sally's' have some great ION single sachets my hair goes from straw to silk xxxx

  6. I have extremely dry hair and I love the Moisture shampoos from Tresemme.


  7. Thanks for this Becca, I'm looking to find the perfect shampoo/conditioner and haven't yet. This helps having to cut out trying a few! xx

  8. I am also trying to find a good nourishing conditioner! x
