I’ve been slacking off on the Fitness Fridays posts so i apologise for that. My creations haven’t been worthy of a recipe post and my routine is pretty much the same as the last update, but i will have a post for next week for sure!
My mum has been into shopping at as many supermarkets as possible recently, trying to get the best deals etc. As a little treat she’s been picking up all manner of products from the beauty aisles of everywhere from Asda, Aldi and Waitrose. This has of course been great news for me, fun products to play with that are extremely affordable and I haven’t had to spend a penny…winning.
I’ve recently started using one of the shampoos that she has picked up and this one is from Waitrose, it’s the Argan Plus Deep Repair Shampoo.
First off let’s talk packaging….bright blue is a total surprise from normal packaging and it was quite refreshing to see it. i do love simple packaging like NSpa or girly like Soap and Glory and monochrome like Label M. I’d always choose one of those but actually the colours go well and I’ve quite liked having the blue bottle on display.
This shampoo will set you back £5.99 for the 300ml. I think this is a perfectly acceptable price for a shampoo from a higher end supermarket. Waitrose do generally stock good quality products at reasonable prices so you know you can trust them.
This claims to cleanse, enhance and revitalise hair that is dry and damaged leaving it softer and shinier. This obviously contains Argan Oil and helps to restore strength, but it also contains an amino acid blend to help cleanse without stripping the hair.
Keratin and Baobab oil help with moisturisation to make hair more manageable, smooth and shiny (who on earth doesn’t want that?!)
Argan Plus is particularly good as it contains 4 extra oils; Baobab, Kukui, Moringa and Sacha Inci none of which I have ever heard of before but they allegedly were added for their restorative and nourishing properties.
I’ve been using this for the last 2/3 weeks and have even used it to double cleanse. It’s a lovely shampoo which you don’t need much of and I’ve been impressed with how it has cleansed and also nourished my hair.
I’d definitely consider repurchasing this and also other products from their range and will definitely check it out next time I go to Waitrose.
The only downside to this that I can see is that in contains Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, one of the sulfates that many don’t like but is also even more drying than the Sodium Lauryl Sulfates (SLS) that everyone definitely knows about.
This is disappointing and I think maybe with long term use there would be some negative effects but I haven’t seen any yet.
Have you tried any products from Argan Plus?
