Big Softy

There’s one shampoo which I come to again and again. These days, with everyone feeling a bit more aware of what they’re spending money on, it’s tempting to choose a cheap, bargain basement shampoo.

Personally, I don’t think this is the way to go. Instead, I’m getting expensive hair cuts less often by using a high quality, moisturising shampoo to keep my locks shiny and healthy.

I love Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin. It makes my hair so soft and silky and really keeps it in good nick. Meaning that I don’t have to get my hair chopped for much longer than I normally would. At around £11 a bottle I don’t think that’s too shabby.

Crazy girl logic or common sense?!

Drop the Bombshell

We’re having a bit of an Umberto Giannini moment at Beauty Guerrillas. First it was the Overnight Beauty Balm, now it is the Beautifully Blonde Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner. I first tried this haircare duo yesterday and, my goodness, I was very impressed. Usually with haircare it takes a lot to get a good reaction from me. It is normally the more expensive products that do the trick, but these are just £4.19 each from Boots.

The consistency of the shampoo is quite thick and firm and I only needed a small amount to clean my shoulder-length locks. As for the conditioner, it slips easily through hair and washes off without a hitch, leaving no greasy residue.

When I started blow-drying my hair I couldn’t believe the vibrancy of my colour. I had no idea my blonde could be so light and bright, my usual yellow tinge and brassiness was banished. If you’re blonde and your colour is lacking in va va voom try these products, you won’t be disappointed.

And in case you’re wondering, our Giannini reviews haven’t stopped yet. We’ll be talking about the Instant Beauty Makeover Spray soon.

Expert Advice

After the surprisingly good results from Boots Expert anti-blemish toner, I decided to give another product from the range a go. This time I chose Expert Build Up Removal Shampoo.

I go through stages of using a lot of product and I find that my hair gets pretty nasty when I do. It goes dull and gunky, and t feels grimy no matter how much I wash it. A clarifying shampoo which strips all that junk away from my follicles is what’s needed but I know I won’t use it enough to justify a big spend.

Really, a clarifying shampoo doesn’t need to be expensive or luxurious, the results are going to be pretty much the same no matter which brand you opt for. So I picked up the Boots Expert option at a teensy £1.99.

Afterwards, my hair was revived; blonder, brighter and lighter. This is a must-have for anyone who uses styling products or goes swimming.
