Shampoo & Conditioner Reviews (Dove, Satinique)


As you may have noticed, my blog has had a little makeover! I hope you like the design as much as I do – I love the new look. That aside, today I wanted to talk a little bit about the hair products I’ve been using. Recently I’ve noticed my hair is really, really demanding. Almost every shampoo I try does not work for me, so I’ve just been sticking to a tried and tested favourite – Garnier. But I have a few new things in my shower and thought I would review them.
A few weeks ago I was in our local drugstore, and I picked up the Dove Pure Care Shampoo & Conditioner. Each of them cost around 3€ on sale and I immediately thought of Lauren Conrad. Ages ago, I read in a magazine that she loves Dove haircare and now that it’s finally more readily available here in Slovenia, I remembered that and just bought these two. I loved them at first. My hair was silky soft when I used them, smelled amazing and didn’t get greasy for two days. But then something happened that has been going on with every shampoo I’ve been using – after about a week of using them, my hair got worse and worse. As soon as I dried it, it was already greasy! I have no idea why this is happening – I can use the conditioner, but the shampoo just messes with my hair. So, thumbs down on this shampoo. The conditioner however, I love. It smells lovely, makes my hair soft and really nourished.
Let’s move on to Satinique. I attended an event for the brand back in the summer and hair been faithfully using their Anti-Hairfall Shampoo and Conditioner ever since. I really enjoy these two. The scent is gentle but lovely at the same time and I love the effect of the products. I’m not sure if they had any effect on the hair loss part, but I love using them, especially because no other shampoo seems to work for me. I had no problems with this one, which is great. These are a bit more expensive though, around 14€ for each on I really like this brand, though, and I want to try more products from them, because my hair seems to approve.
My foray into the world of shampoos is semi-successful. It just seems like something in the shampoos others love doesn’t work for me. I’m not sure if it’s SLS, or parabens, or something of the like, I need to do more research. But so far, the only shampoo that works for me is either Garnier or Satinique. Conditioners work great, but shampoos are another story. Do you have any advice for me? I really have no idea what I’m doing wrong!
