My Guinea Pigs
My husband was the first to try out the shampoo and conditioner, and I’m sad to say he wasn’t that impressed. He said that he had to use more shampoo then he usually would, but it did smell amazing. He was looking forward to having that smell in his hair afterwards, but sadly, none of us could smell any of this fantastic aroma on his hair.
However, he does have short hair, and I wonder if it had an impact on it in any way?
Next, I went all in and tried the shampoo and hair mask. I immediately understood what my husband meant about the gorgeous scent. I used about the same amount of shampoo as I usually do. I found it to be quite drying on my hair. This is a good thing for me as I suffer from greasy hair and this is a massive problem for me. On to the hair mask and I followed the instructions, and I expected it to leave my hair heavy and become greasy quickly after. I would typically avoid hair masks because of this. This did not do that. My hair was like stated, silky smooth and after blow drying my hair lasted clean and fresh looking for not one but three days!
Its downside was like my husband my hair didn’t have that beautiful fruity smell after but overall I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
I have tried using the shampoo and conditioner and not using the hair mask, and the results were similar. I might have found a right combination for my greasy mop!
Now before you judge me for trying it on my two daughters (seven and five years old). I did it for a good reason. They both have long hair and due to their ages has sensitive skin. My eldest more so.

So I felt confident to use on my children. One has curly, knotty hair and the other straight, thick hair. They both are head-strong and know what they like and don’t.
I used the shampoo and conditioner on both of them, and this is precisely what they had to say about them.
I like the smell and how soft if makes my hair. I’m glad that when I combed it with the conditioner in that it didn’t hurt. I just love it.
I love it because it is pink and fruity! Plus it got very bubbly and I could stand my hair up.
My view on using the products on their hair was that the conditioner worked well when I was detangling their hair. Also, they had no reactions to the products and left their hair clean and smooth.
At £2.50 each, it works out cheaper for us as a family. All of us can use the same products and yes I tested them on my children’s hair. So I would say safe to use for 3+ years. It worked and did what it was meant to do on a wide range of hair types and persons. I can say that as I have also shared these products with Louise and her family. They all seem pleased with the results as well. Her brood is her husband, five children (ages from 4 to 14 years) and of course herself.
The most significant flaw if I am going to be picky is even though our hair was lovely afterwards. It did not retain the fruity aroma. Our hair, once dry, didn’t smell of anything. At least it didn’t smell dirty, right?
