Soap & Glory Shampoo & Conditioner Review

S&G S&C

Back in October I made the switch to sulphate free shampoo and have found that it really agrees with my hair – it helps my colour last longer, allows me to go an extra day between washes and is overall shinier and healthier. I scoured the shelves of Boots and The Body Shop (among others) and have tried out several different ones since then, but nothing was as good as the beloved Liz Earle offering. Until now.

Pay Day Haulin’

I have to confess, this being my first proper full time pay cheque in well over a year, I did get a tad carried away. (The triple points offer at Boots didn’t help!) But at the same time, I stocked up on some essentials and definitely deserved a few treats. After all, I have been working hard!

What’s In My Shower?

I saw this great post on Lulu’s Beauty Spot a few weeks back and knew as soon as I read it that I wanted to do my own version of it. According to Lulu, this was once a classic blog question, much like what’s in my handbag, but is one I haven’t seen before! Have I completely missed this craze?

Empties 6

It’s Empties time again – and it’s another big one! Lately it seems like I’ve been keeping hold of a couple of used up things for ages and then all of a sudden this happens. Plus in the week since I took these photos I’ve already used up a couple of other things. I’m definitely an everything at once kind of product finisher.

In my last post about switching to sulphate free, I promised a more long term update and I have now had chance to try out a couple of the other shampoos that I mentioned were on the market, so I’m going to do some quick reviews on them for you.

Switching To Sulphate Free Shampoo – Week 2 & 3

IMG_1644

Okay so this is the promised follow-up post to let you all know how I’m getting on with changing to sulphate free shampoo. If you haven’t seen it already, you can read about why I switched and how I got in during the first week here.

I did originally say that I would do an update after a week, however I felt like there wasn’t really much to say apart from giving more unanswered questions so I’ve waited to do an extra week to give you all a better idea of what it’s been like to make the switch. The products pictured above are from The Body Shop’s Rainforest range (£4.50 each).

Switching To Sulphate Free Shampoo – Why I Switched & Week 1

IMG_1644

Last Friday, I purchased The Body Shop’s Rainforest Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner. Before buying them I did my research and I found that sulphate is a strong cleaning chemical which is used in many industrial products, such as car shampoo, engine degreaser and floor cleaners. Ew. It’s also completely synthetic and is usually in the form of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). It is what causes your shampoo to lather and go all bubbly. Because it is a harsh synthetic compound it strips out hair colour, can irritate the skin, leaves the scalp dry, can cause hair breakage, causes frizziness and can cause hair to go grey earlier! So really, why would you want to use this on your hair?
