Hi Loves! Here’s part two of my winter empties – hair products. In case you missed my other post (part one) – I’m breaking my empties into sections since I didn’t want to write one really long post! I have some how managed to get a pretty large sample stash of shampoo & conditioners. Here are the ones that left an impression behind.
Redkin All Soft Shampoo & Conditioner – BUY!
I really really liked this. It smelled amazing, and left my longer dry hair feeling super soft. It also smelled wonderful. Based upon this sample, I’ve been hunting for this at a good price.
Redkin Curvaceous Shampoo & Conditioner – Meh…
I have naturally wavy/curly hair when I let my hair get longer and it gets to air dry. I was really excited to use this in the beginning and loved the effect. However – its sulfate free and its really easy to get too much on your hair – that can be a pain to get out. A little will go a long way on this, it was alright, but after a couple times of not getting it all out…I’m over it. Either – I put on too much – or it was managing to build up for me. Either way – after a couple washes with a clarifying shampoo…my hair has returned.
Biolage Exquisite Oil Shampoo & Conditioner (2 – uses) – BUY!
I have been a biolage user since I was in high school – the smell alone takes me back in time! I got two separate samples so used it a couple times. I loved it, it left my hair soft & shiny but not oily or greasy. I’m sold on this, however I don’t know if I’d use it daily or every time I shampoo since its heavier. I’ve also been looking at buying full size of this.
Matrix Total Results Blonde Care – Ok
Ok, so you know I’m not blonde – but my hair stylist gave me a few samples of this to try for its conditioner which she thought I’d like because its weightless. This was alright – it wasn’t good – it wasn’t bad, but I don’t know if I’d go out looking for it. It did smell nice and if you’re blonde, it has a slight purple tint to help avoid any brassiness that can come from dying hair blonde.
Bumble & Bumble thickening shampoo & conditioner – pass…
I have fine – thick hair. Basically my hair strands are fine, but I have a lot of it. With my hair being below my shoulders for the first time in years…I was looking for something to help give my hair a boost. This just made it feel snarly and hard to comb which resulted in breaking some hair. If you have really fine, thin hair, this could be a wonderful thing.
Drybar Cream Soda Smoothing Cream – Buy!
I love smoothing creams and focus them mainly on the middle-to-ends of my hair. This was light but provided control that I loved. I will also look into buying this because it was great when I curled my hair and wanted definition but also wanted to be able to run my fingers through it.
Phytospecific Moisturizing Styling Cream – pass…
This is really heavy. I tried it on damp hair and dry hair – it was just too heavy for me to tolerate in my hair. I think if you have coarse or thick hair this could be perfect but it just weighed my fine hair down. I didn’t even finish the sample.
Thanks for making it to the end of another empties post!
