Beauty Quickie: The Old Shampoo Switcheroo

Well, I've had a bit of a surprise lately as far as my hair care routine counts. First of all, let me say that I'm the biggest floozie when it comes to hair care – shampoos especially. I don't have any special hair problems but having the ‘combo’ double trouble in the form of an overly oily roots and dehydrated, frizzy ends – you can just imagine how hard it is to balance things off. I need an invirogating shampoo which gives lift to my roots whilst not drying out the ends. Anything that's heavy, even the slightest gets the boot so – can you just imagine my surprise when a shampoo for completely opposite hair type than mine turns out to be more suiting than the one intended for my hair ailments? Tocco Magico Kur Cashmire Relaxing Shampoo for colored, stressed and heavily treated hair is something I received to test out. I knew right from the start that it wouldn't be revolutionary for me, however, I was willing to give it a go in hope that I can generate some coherent conclusions. I'm well aware that not all readers of mine share the same hair problems and needs as I do so this sort of experiment might be useful for some, I thought. Cashmere Relaxing Shampoo smells like a true salon baby, very reminiscent of old-school hair salons and freshly blow dried hair. You get the regular 250ml bottle but the texture of this shampoo makes it more lasting than most regular ones. It's of a clear, thick texture so you need only a small dollop to lather up the entire head of hair. Now, I'm not going to say that this shampoo have me volume, because it hasn't. What it did provide is a well groomed, easily managed mane which is completely frizz-free. Hair looks lush, healthy and shiny. Ends are completely nourished but not weighed down. My hair is not color treated but this is definitely something I wish I'd used back in the day when I have colored it, years ago. I think it's a brilliant shampoo for dry, colored and chemically stressed hair. It performed much better than the Ziaja Shampoo with lavender extract for oily hair. This, on the other hand is completely bland for my tastes. Yes, you get 500ml of shampoo for a ridiculously small amount of cash but it simply doesn't deliver. It does smell lush and juicy but this clear shampoo is too runny and you end up using too much to produce a decent lather. It lacks in consistency – one day it performed quite well while, during the next wash, my hair was left limp and almost as greasy as it was prior to washing. I get no volume, absolutely no desired and/or needed lift while it managed to tangle my ends to the point that even the Tangle Teezer couldn't do much. It wasn't drying on a whole but my ends did suffer whilst I was using it. It isn't the worst shampoo I've ever tried but when a shampoo for completely opposite hair type makes you reach for it rather than this one, well…I think that even though surprising, it's definitely an eye-opener.

U posljednje vrijeme sam dozivjela dosta nekih beauty iznenadjenja – posebno na polju njege kose. Prije svega, moram spomenuti kako sam potpuno nestalna osoba kada su proizvodi za kosu u pitanju a najgora je situacija sa samponima. Ne bih istakla neki posebno zahtjevan problem kojim se moram pozabaviti kod njege, no sama cinjenica da imam ‘kombinovan’ tip koji podrazumijeva masno tjeme i dehidrirane, naelektrisane krajeve – dovoljno govori o tome koliko postizanje balansa moze biti nezgodan zadatak. Potreban mi je prociscujuci sampon koji ce pruziti prozracnost i volumen pri tjemenu ali da istovremeno ne isusuje krajeve. Bilo sto je eventualno isuvise tesko ili isuvise hranljivo jednostavno nema prilaza mojim licnim rezervama. Mozete onda samo zamisliti moje iznenadjenje kada je sampon, namijenjen potpuno suprotnom tipu kose od moje, uspio da me vise dojmi od sampona koji je namijenjen upravo mom masnom tjemenu? Tocco Magico Kur Relaxing sampon sa kasmirom (1000ml za 13KM kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj) za obojenu, hemijski tretiranu i ostecenu kosu je uzorak koji sam dobila na testiranje. Odmah sam od pocetka znala da mi se nece pokazati revolucionarnim zbog odstupanja od tipa kose ali bila sam spremna da ga istestiram i pokusam izvuci par zakljucaka. Itekako sam svjesna da sve moje citateljice nemaju isti tip kose poput mog tako da sam pomislila kako bi nekoj od vas ipak moji dojmovi glede ovog sampona mogli biti od koristi. Relaxing sampon sa kasmirom mirise kao da je iskocio iz retro reklame za frizerski sampon i asocira me na miris svjeze isfenirane kose. Dobila sam tester of 250ml no jedan litar ovog sampona kosta 13KM. Tekstura ovog sampona ga cini nesto ekonomicnijim od vecine. Posto je dosta gust, potrebna je mala kolicina za postizanje pristojne pjene i detaljno ciscenje. Necu vam reci da mi je ovaj sampon pruzio volumen, jer nije. Ono sto cu reci jeste da je ucinio kosu urednom, svaki pramen je lijepo bio poslozen, kosa je bila lagana za oblikovanje i nije bila naelektrisana. Jednostavno je izgledala zdravo i sjajno te njegovano. Moja kosa nije obojena no voljela bih da sam imala ovakav sampon prije par godina kada sam je farbala. Mislim da je sjajan za ofarbanu, ostecenu i hemijski tretiranu kosu. Mnogo mi se bolje pokazao od Ziaja sampona sa lavandom za masnu kosu. Istina, dobijete 500ml za mozda 5KM koliko sam ga platila na snizenju u cm-u. I pored toga, za mene ovo nije bila isplativa kupovina. Sampon zaista mirise slasno no isuvise je rijetke formulacije i na kraju ga koristim vise nego bi trebalo da bih uopste imala osjecaj kako mi je kosa oprana. Ono sto mi najvise smeta je nedostatak dosljednosti – jednog dana mi je pristojno ocistio kosu a vec naredni put je kosa bila otuzna i masna kao prije pranja ovim samponom. Uopste ne pruza volumen dok je uspio da zapetlja krajeve do mjere kada ni Tangle Teezer cetka nije mogla pomoci. Ovo u svakom slucaju nije najgori sampon koji sam isprobala ali ponovna kupovina se nece desiti. Kada radije pocnete posezati za samponom koji uopste nije trebao da vam odgovara umjesto ovog (koji bi teoretski trebao funkcionisati), to prilicno mnogo govori.
