A very interesting thing happened yesterday afternoon, I received my @lovelonghair shampoo and Conditioner Samples. It is a blind test, i.e. the brand name isn't mentioned, so that my review is unbiased. I am so excited to try this out, I was reading about it in almost all the beauty blogs, and was thrilled when #lovelonghair kindly sent them for me to try. It feels so nice to be part of something so exciting like this.
It came in a plain white bottle, with their logo and a label differentiating the Shampoo and Conditioner. I thought I would recognize the brand by the smell of it, but it doesn't smell like anything I have used before. (the anticipation is killing me).
The shampoo and the conditioner are both white in colour, and thick in consistency. I washed my third day hair, which was a little greasy in the scalp, and washed it twice, the shampoo lathered up pretty well, neither too much that it would strip your hair out of all its moisture, nor too less that it wouldn't clean the scalp at all. I could feel all my strands align together all smooth and silky as soon as I rinsed the shampoo off. The conditioner is thicker than the shampoo, and smoothed my hair even further by detangling it. I left it on for around 5 minutes before I rinsed it off with cold water.
It has a pleasant smell that lingers on your hair after you shampoo. I didn't notice any added hair fall after using the shampoo, if a shampoo doesn't suit me then I tend to shed a lot of hair whilst shampooing, but thankfully that wasn't the case here.
I let my hair air dry, and didn't apply any leave in conditioner, just so that I see the results of only this range. It dried very soft to touch, wasn't tangled at all, and didn't weigh my hair down. I have long hair which needs a lot of care and time, and products like these certainly help because it is adding back moisture and detangling it, therefore reducing hair fall due to breakage.
It is really hard to say what I exactly feel about it, and will be able to write a better review after few washes. But my first impression on it is very good and I will definitely wash my hair the second time with it.
Luckily for me, I don't have to wait much longer to know what brand this is as they are about to reveal it in two days from now, so make sure you follow @lovelonghair on twitter to find out.
