MY THOUGHTS

My hair type is Oily on roots and dry at the ends because of all the chemicals in my hair dye, so picking a daily shampoo and conditioner is tricky. Dove is such an iconic brand, but I haven’t tried any hair products by them. So I found a shampoo and conditioner in a grocery store and was like…Why not try it?! And the price was good(1,79 euro for each). After a month of using here are my thoughts!

First of all the scent is AMAZING! And it stays in your hair for a while, if you don’t like that…then it could be a downside. For me it’s a major plus, I love my hair smelling nice. The shampoo has tiny shimmer particles, don’t know if it does anything but it does look pretty. The conditioner is nice and thick. After washing my hair every other day, I can say my hair feels smooth and very clean. The only downside is my hair color faded a little bit, I guess it’s the harsh sulfates in the shampoo. Overall I’m very happy with this duo if you can definitely try it.

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

Packaging is pretty simple, very “classically” Garnie. Easy to open. I would prefer the packaging to be translucent or at least white, but you can’t have it all.

QUALITY AND MY HAIR AFTER USING IT

The quality (from what I can tell)is good. Very thick consistency, has a pleasant scent…but it’s strong, so not everyone will like it. This is perfect for very dry and dry hair, if you have an oily scalp…it’s not for you. As an oily scalp owner, but as someone who has very dry hairs (I dye my hair a LOT), this helped my hair be more healthy. But…it makes your scalp super oily. Overall, I liked it.

PROS  
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Amazing for dry hair
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • it has a strong scent

MY THOUGHTS :

I have an oily scalp,but dry ends. So seeing this shampoo I knew I needed to try it. So I did! For a month I tried it and here are my thoughts.

PACKAGING

Pretty simple pink plastic bottle with a black cap. The bottle is translucent,so that’s nice, you can see how much of the product is still left.

QUALITY AND SCENT

It smells amazing! Such a beautiful scent that stays on your hair for hours after washing. The quality is very good.The shampoo is thick and you don’t need a lot of product too really clean your hair(and that’s good).

MY HAIR AFTER MONTH OF USE

My hair feels strong, but not super healthy. It’s a good shampoo, but it’s not my favorite. It did help my scalp with the excess oil. Will I repurchase it? Yes, but only at a discount.

Overall

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • great for everyday use
  • Affordable
CONS
  • Not a lot of product
  • Packaging is hard to recycle because of the color

IMG_20200801_150238

Packaging

It’s really bulky, so usually, I just put it in a smaller container for everyday use.

Quality and Scent

This is our 3 bottle of this shampoo, my mom loves it so we always have it in our house. It has a very nice caramel scent ,it’s not overbearing on your hair but you can definitely smell it across the room when someone is having a shower. How I already said my mom loves it , it makes her hair shiny and easy to brush… I, on the other hand, it always makes my hair frizzy. Like REALLY frizzy. Yes it feels healthy and my scalp feels nice…but my hair looks crazy ,don’t know how or why, but that’s how it is for me.

OVERALL

A good family type of shampoo for an affordable price.

 Pros  
  • Great scent
  • Lots of product in the bottle
  • Great for the whole family
  • Affordable
Cons
  • Not travel friendly

Nivea Colour Protect mild Shampoo- Review

About the Product:

Nivea Colour Protection Mild Shampoo (250 ml), Gentle Nourishing Shampoo with color care complex hair shampoo for healthy, colored hair

  • Colour protection – The mild Nivea Colour Protection Shampoo nourishes colored hair particularly intensively and protects the hair color for longer color shine.
  • Colour care complex – with every use, the nourishing Nivea shampoo with its color care complex makes dyed hair noticeably supple.
  • pH balance: thanks to its pH-optimised formula, the shampoo is particularly mild on hair and scalp and harmonizes with your natural pH value.
  • Gentle cleansing: the shampoo gently cleanses the scalp. At the same time, it strengthens the hair structure and intensively nourishes for naturally beautiful hair

My Thoughts 

IMG_20200801_150517

PACKAGING

Nothing fancy about it, just a simple shampoo bottle. It’s really easy to use, so no complaints there! 

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

Mmmkay, the name says it all, it’s a very mild shampoo. Yes, your hair color will not fade, and yes you will clean your hair…but it’s not a great shampoo if you have very oily skin and need a little bit more to clean your scalp. I think it’s more for people with sensitive scalp and colored hair. Overall a decent shampoo for the money.

OVERALL

jake-weirick-Q_RBVFFXR_g-unsplash

Pros  

  •  Hair color doesn’t fade
  • Makes your hair feel nice and silky
  • Affordable(at least in Latvia)
  • Has a very light scent, not overbearing

Cons

  • Not a lot of product in the packaging

My Thoughts

So I have tried this duo just once, but I already love it! First of all the scent is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ,it’s sweet so if that’s an issue for you better skip this one.

I got some new Stuff- Avon “Skin and Body care” Haul

Hello, My Darlings! And Hey if you are new here, it’s so nice to see you! Today I want to talk about some goodies I got from Avon. I didn’t really plan to get anything this month, but me being sick for 2 weeks and the catalog just sitting on the table…well I made an order(yes, I have no self-control when it comes to pretty cosmetic bottles). So I paid for all of those goodies around 20 euros, cheaper than our drugstores (We Love Saving Money) . Let’s dive into the Haul!

Naturals hair care Full Volume Shampoo (raspberry & hibiscus)

Why I got it – This is a HUGE bottle(and I love it)! The price was decent (3,88 euro for 700 ml bottle) so I decided to get it. I already tried it, and I can say I like it. It does give you volume, but not over the top one. Now I want to try more of those shampoos.

avon for blog 3
