I'm constantly on a mission to find a shampoo that will control or reduce the greasies, and don't usually have much luck, but lately I've been using one that's actually worth blogging about - Redken Scalp Control Oil Detox.
Hmmm not great photo quality there - must be all this gloomy weather!
This shampoo is the best I've tried for my hair. For a change, it's one that actually does what it says on the label. It's not turned me into an every-other-day hair washer just yet, but I've noticed a huge difference in the level of oiliness the next day.
The instructions recommend that you put the shampoo on your dry hair for a bit before washing. Although it's a pain to do this, it does enhance the power of the product. I tend to work a blob into the front and sides of my scalp and I leave it on while cleansing my face and brushing my teeth. I then wet my hair, add more shampoo and wash as normal.
It doesn't create a massive lather, and what with the double treatment each day I did get through my first bottle very quickly. Although, I was so pleased with the results I got from this that I ordered another two bottles straight away.
I'm hoping that with continued use this shampoo will become even more effective for me. It hasn't been able to give me 'normal' hair over night, so it's not a miracle product, but it's certainly the best I've ever tried.
Unlike some other oil control shampoos I've used in the past, it has a nice fresh smell and it doesn't strip the rest of my hair making the ends even drier. I've continued to use my normal conditioners on the ends of my hair and haven't noticed any extra dryness.
Overall I'm a little bit in love with this shampoo and I hope it continues to work for me.
You can buy this shampoo from Look Fantastic here - it costs £10.60 for a 300ml bottle.
