I nipped in to Boots last weekend with one mission in mind - to find myself a shampoo and conditioner that were going to help me deal with the dry, straggly ends I've been suffering with recently. I've never had any trouble splashing out when it comes to skincare and make up, but as far as hair is concerned I have a tendency to be somewhat neglectful and because of this thought it was high time I made the effort and treated my locks to a little luxury.
Originally I had planned to pick up a few of the products from the Ojon Damage Reverse range, however, as so often happens - after strolling into the store and being greeted by one of the lovely ladies who works there I was persuaded to go with something completely different with the assurance that I would not regret my decision. What with the offer of a few free samples in addition, I just couldn't resist and picked up the Bumble and Bumble "quenching" duo despite the combined price tag of £48.00 making me wince a little when it came to checkout time.
The two samples I received (which I believe they are still giving out as part of an offer i.e. one sample per product purchased) were the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil and the new Surf Shampoo and Conditioner that I have heard so much hype about recently across the blogging community. I have yet to try either of them but am really excited to do so. One thing I can tell you is that the oil smells incredible as I have been sitting here having a little sniff whilst writing this!
As far as the shampoo and conditioner are concerned - after using them for just over a week now, I am feeling pretty impressed. There has been a definite improvement in how soft my hair has started to feel. I have quite thick hair as it is, though this seemed to really give it that extra boost - it has been particularly manageable this week and on more than one occasion I have been able to look in the mirror in the morning and think to myself what a good hair day I'm having - and believe me, that is a rare occurrence when you have a mane as unruly as mine!
One of the big advantages and what sold them to me when I was being talked into purchasing, is the fact that they only require a very small amount of product in order to do their job. The lady in Boots had mentioned it being "fifty pence sized" which I think may have been a slight exaggeration -nonetheless though, I can see the modest 250ml worth of product in each case lasting me some time before I need to repurchase.
All in all, I'd describe them as being a really lovely combination that do exactly what they say on the tin. I wouldn't go as far (yet) as to say that they have been life changing and I expect to go on to try a few similar products from other brands before making up my mind on whether or not they are worth the hefty price tag. I would definitely recommend giving them a try though if you don't mind spending the pennies as of all the shampoos and conditioners I have tried thus far, they are without doubt one of the nicest.
