3 Head Turning Shampoos

3 Head Turning Shampoos

Haircare is a top priority on our lists all year round but in the current weather it’s hard to know what to use. One minute it’s hot, the next it’s cold, then overcast but humid. ?Or it’s bucketing down and windy. I’ve?hunted down the best shampoos that keep hair clean, but also nourished and beautiful all day long, whatever the weather throws our way.

First up on my list is the Shu Uemura Cleansing Shampoo Oil Shampoo.

Everybody knows Shu Uemura’s facial cleansing oil is fabulous, but the shampoo is equally as good. The pump is great for easy application; it comes out like a light gel but transforms into a beautiful foam as soon as you start working it through. This shampoo left my hair feeling soft and lightweight and ready to take on the world.

Second up is L’Occitane En Provence Body and Strength Shampoo.

This new offering from French beauty brand L’Occitane En Provence is perfect for hair that is thinning or fine and prone to breakage. This shampoo is packed with five essential oils (Rosemary, Cypress, Ylang Ylang, Juniper, Cedar) which help to strengthen hair and stop any breakage from occurring. This shampoo left my hair feeling full-bodied and alive. The high essential oil content meant it smelt divine.
Thirdly, we’re quite partial to Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Shampoo.

Burt’s Bees products are great workhorses and always deliver. This shampoo has a really light texture and a strong mango scent, which lingers for hours. Nice. ?Even without conditioning afterwards, it leaves hair super sleek, so it’s ideal when you need a’morning boost.

None?of these formulas contain any silicone?or parabens, and all are designed to work wonders in tandem with your natural hair oils. I always recommend shampooing twice to get the full effect of your shampoo. Follow with a nourishing conditioner or hair mask?and you’ll be ready to?go off into the world and hold your head up high!
