I’m getting quite behind on my review type posts so expect a some more in the next few days!
Let’s start with the Wen conditioner.
Now, I must say that I took it literally when it says that it’s conditioner – meaning that I used shampoo before using this. I guess I’m not so good at reading instructions… You’re meant to use a small amount, add a splash of water and massage it into your hair, then comb through and leave for up to 5 minutes.
Now it could be because I used shampoo before this, but it really made my hair dry. It made my hair dry and frizzy and it’s not been in such a bad state in years and years. The smell was ok… Kind of fresh.
Because I wasn’t having much luck with it, I decided to give it to my friend Candy, who has gorgeous hair (which deserves its own blog) and he looks like a boy from a manga he’s so pretty. Candy used it correctly, because he’s not doof like me, but he also said that it didn’t work so well in his hair and wasn’t any better than the normal stuff he uses. He said he liked the smell, but it didn’t last so long.
Considering that this product is pretty expensive, neither of us would buy it.
Now onto the shampoo!
C:EHKO seems to be a German brand. On the English part of their website, they say of this shampoo -
Intensive Care Shampoo with a deep-penetrating formula provides care even while shampooing. High-quality active agents and the AMICONE®-COMPLEX give new vitality and freshness. The hair is left smoothed and reconstructed. Adds a marvelous shine.
The first thing I noticed about this was that it’s pretty thin. I know a lot of haircare products are trying to cut down on the crap in them right now so I assume that’s the reason behind it. It doesn’t lather up very well either. The second thing I noticed was that it smells like Tutti Fruity sweets! SCORE! It does kinda make me happy to smell that in the shower.
As for making my hair shiny… when used (incorrectly) with the Wen conditioner it didn’t do so well. But paired with a hair mask (to undo the Wen mess), someone asked me if I’d had a hair cut because my hair looked so good. I reckon if used with a decent conditioner, it would be really good.
According to the website, it’s a good 14 euros, so I don’t know if I’d repurchase it – but the shampoo I’m using right now was 20 euros so I guess it’s not out of the question to spend that much! If I did, I’d buy the whole set, though.
Have you used either of these products? Let me know if you have!
