Hello everyone! Today I am going to be looking at two products that I recently hauled in my most recent Boots haul here if you would like to take a look! The Soap & Glory shampoo here retails for £5.50 as does the Soap & Glory conditioner which you can check out here.
Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day - Shampoo and Conditioner
I have had my eye on trying these out for a while however I was a tad worried about trying them. I have seen a few negative reviews about how this shampoo and conditioner combo have left peoples hair feeling damaged and fried. Not the look I want to go for!
I'm the type of person you will see walking round Boots, opening up products and smelling them. I always found myself drawn to the smell of the shampoo Soap & Glory have to offer however the conditioners were always out of stock! There are two conditioners available from Soap & Glory. One for thick hair and one for fine to normal hair. Despite having thick hair I thought I would try the fine to normal conditioner since the other conditioner was still not in stock!
So what are my thoughts on the two? Lets start of with the shampoo. The scent of this shampoo is so heavenly and sweet. I love using this shampoo because my hair smells sweet and fruity all day. This shampoo claims to leave your hair with a 'gloss' finish whilst appearing 'smooth' on top of aiming to 'repair' and 'strengthen' the hair! I think that this shampoo doesn't add gloss for me however the hair is left feeling smooth and is much easier to style. As for repair and strengthen? I am sceptical about any product claiming to repair the hair and after two weeks I haven't really noticed a change in the strength of my hair. One thing I love about this shampoo, since I have oily hair at times, is that it dries my hair a little so that my hair doesn't get as oily as quick! I tend to sweat through my hair because it is so quick (glamorous I know) so this is fantastic for prolonging a hair wash and making my hair look fresher for longer! However for those with damaged hair I would stay well clear!
So how about the conditioner? Well the conditioner, frankly, did absolutely nothing for me. Admittedly this isn't designed for my hair type so i would be intrigues to see if their conditioner designed for thicker hair would work any better. I used this conditioner in the way I would any other conditioner. I left it on my hair for a couple of minutes then rinsed it off. However rather than being left with soft, smooth hair it left my hair feeling stiff and almost fake. Not what I want at all. It would dry completely fine however the instant after shower feel wasn't too nice! I also tried this conditioner as a deep conditioner. I left it on my hair wrapped up for around 10-15 minutes and it worked a ton better then! It left my hair feeling smooth and smelling sweet. So I am glad I have found a use for it to use it up! This product claims to 'detangle' the hair whilst also leaving a 'gloss' finish to the hair and also claiming to 'protect' and 'strengthen' the hair like the shampoo. Unlike the shampoo the conditioner actually has left my hair looking glossy and does help to detangle my hair. However I am not too sure on the protect and strengthen aspect of this conditioner!
So my overall thoughts? I love the shampoo but I'm not a big fan of the conditioner! Personally I can see these drying out already damaged hair; so your hair needs to be really strong to pull off these shampoos and conditioners! Have you tried Soap & Glory's shampoo and conditioner? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!
