Current Shampoo Posse

7/12/2014



Finding a decent shampoo for these demanding tresses of mine turns out to be quite a laborous task. Very oily roots (I'll spare you the frying pan reference), dehydrated and frizzy ends and those small 'antennas' near the scalp (small hairs) are all the reasons why my hair drives me nuts! It wasn't like this before, I remember when I had literally inky black hair, stick straight just like I love it and no frizziness. Sigh. Few years of dying my hair had took their toll and now it's not as it used to be. I'm color-free for 3-4 years now and it seems like it's only recently looking a bit better than usually. It's very shiny, I cannot complain about that but oiliness is a nightmare so a dry shampoo is always near by my side. Basically, I want a clean, airy scalp but I don't want to strip my hair from all it's oils as that's counterproductive and you can push it into an oil-overdrive. I have three new(ish) shampoos in rotation.'In rotation' mostly means that I'll use one shampoo for 2-3 weeks before switching to the new one. I find that a period slightly less than a month is enough for me to estimate if my hair gets along with a certain shampoo. Pantene Pro V Aqua Light Shampoo (250ml) isn't a new release by any means but it's only recently that I gave it a chance. Agressive advertising repulses me and I avoid products advertised in such way to rediscover them on my own a few months later when the hype goes away. This shampoo really does cleanse the scalp very well, makes hair beautiful and airy - just how I like it but that effect lasts for only a day. It doesn't sort me out for two days at least. I'll test it furthermore but regardless, it's a very nice drugstore shampoo for frequent use as it's not stripping. I received Alkmene Beer Shampoo (250ml) as a gift from a friend. I'm everyone's guinea pig so people test things on me and that's the case with this shampoo. If I like it, we'll both repurchase it. For now I can tell that I love the glass bottle (have to be careful in the bath, though). It seems luxe and the attention to details really fits my bill. It's a volumizing sort of shampoo and my first impressions are positive indeed. We'll have to wait some more but this looks very promising. It doesn't smell too much of beer, its masked with a berry scent which disappears after washing. Finally, I've received the Tocco Magico Kur Natural Pleasure Relaxing Shampoo (250ml). What.a.mouthful. This shampoo is intended for stressed out, colored hair. Completey mismatched with my hair type but I'm willing to give it a go. It smells very nice, exactly like professional hair salons and I'm hoping that it won't be too nourishing. Wish me luck! I'll report back with my conclusions after few weeks. What shampoos are you currently using?

Pronalazak pristojnog sampona za ovu zahtjevnu kosicu koju imam se pokazalo kao prilicno tezak zadatak. Izrazito masno tjeme (postediti cu vas poredjenja sa tavama, pitama i sl.), dehidrirani i naelektrisani krajevi te one male 'antenice (bebi kosica) oko rubova kose su sasvim dovoljni da me izlude. Moja kosa nije bila uvijek takva. Sjecam se kada sam imala doslovno crnu kosu sa indigo odsjajem, potpuno ravnu kako i volim i bez naelektrisanja*uzdah*. Par godina farbanja je ucinilo svoje i opis kose je u potpunosti izmijenjen. Vec posljednje 3-4 godine ne koristim farbe na kosi i tek nedavno sam primjetila kako se pocinje znacajnije oporavljati. Jako je sjajna, zaista nemam problema po tom pitanju no masno tjeme je nekada previse naporno i tesko se sa njim izboriti tako da je sampon za suho pranje uvijek negdje u blizini. U sustini zelim cistu, prozracnu kosu te da je takva svo vrijeme no isto tako ne zelim koristiti nesto agresivno sto bi joj skinulo zastitni sloj masnoce (ipak je potrebna). Tako agresivni samponi su mi ranije djelovali kontraproduktivno i tjeme se vise mastilo zbog iritacija tako da sam od njih odustala. Trenutno u rotaciji imam tri relativno nova sampona koja testiram. 'U rotaciji' znaci da koristim jedan sampon 2-3 sedmice prije nego sto cu pokusati sa novim. Nesto manje od mjesec dana je period sasvim dovoljan da mogu procijeniti koliko mi odredjeni sampon odgovara tako da bih relativno uskoro trebala znati konacne dojmove glede ovih sampona. Pantene Pro V Aqua Light sampon (250ml) ni u kom slucaju nije novitet no tek nedavno sam odlucila pruziti mu sansu. Agresivan marketing me cesto odbije od proizvoda i onda ga izbjegavam. Cesto se desi da sama ponovo otkrijem nesto par mjeseci nakon sto prestane reklamna kampanja u medijima. Ovaj Pantene sampon stvarno lijepo procisti tjeme, kosa je prozracna i divna - bas kako i zelim. Ali taj efekat traje samo jedan dan i bio bi idealan da se odrzi barem dva dana, zar ne? Jos cu da ga koristim prije konacne odluke no u svakom slucaju je odlican drogerijski samponcic za cesto koristenje posto ne isusuje kosu. Dobila sam Alkmene sampon sa pivom (250ml) kao poklon od prijateljice. Inace sluzim kao pokusni kunic prijateljima tako da je to slucaj i sa ovim samponom. Ako me dojmi, obje cemo ga ponovo nabaviti. Za sada mogu reci kako mi je stakleno pakovanje odlicno (iako zahtjeva oprez u kupaonici). Odaje luksuzan dojam a i paznja detaljima kod pakovanja mi se dopada. Ovdje se radi o samponu za pruzanje volumena kosi a moji prvi utisci su itekako pozitivni. Jos ce biti potrebno vremena da se dodje do zakljucka no za sada djeluje obecavajuce. Ne mirise mnogo na pivo, njegov miris je zamaskiran aromom bobicastog voca koja ispari po pranju. I za kraj, dobila sam na testiranje Tocco Magico Kur Natural Pleasure Relaxing sampon (250ml). Kako dugacak naziv. Ovaj sampon sadrzi proteine kasmira i namijenjen je 'stresiranoj' i obojenoj kosi. Potpuna suptrotnost mom tipu kose no spremna sam da ga istestiram. Lijepo mirise, asocira me na profesionalne frizerske salone i nadam se da nece biti isuvise tezak spram moje kose. Pozelite mi srecu! Javiti cu vam se sa rezultatima testiranja za par sedmica a mene zanima koje sampone vi trenutno koristite?
