Neal and Wolf Rituals Shampoo and Conditioner

A stash of samples have been collecting in my bottom draw since August last year so for my trip to London at the beginning of February I thought it best to take some with me. The only shampoo and conditioner sample I had was Neal and Wolf Rituals which I got in a goody bag from a meet up. Neal and Wolf are one of those brands that I hear beauty bloggers ravings about all the time, so I was excited to see if they would live up to their hype. I tried the Daily Cleansing Shampoo and the Daily Conditioner.

I'm not very savvy when it comes to shampoo and conditioner as I tend to pick up anyone that is in the shower or I'd buy the best smelling one from the shops. My favourites are probably head and shoulders and herbal essences.

When I shampoo I love to get my hair very soapy to ensure its clean. I know I probably waste a lot of shampoo like that but otherwise it doesn't feel like I'm washing my hair fully. It was hard to get a great lather with the sample I had but I just managed to coat all my hair. If my hair was longer I'm not sure how I would have coped. There was enough conditioner as I only put this on the ends of my hair.

They both small very elegant and sweet, a lot like a perfume I used to own called Insolence. After I dried my hair it felt soft and had a lovely shine however I did find that my ends weren't as moisturised as I would have liked and they still felt quite dry. The conditioner also claims to de-tangle but I found compared to others I've used this left quite a few cotters still in my hair. The smell from the shampoo/conditioner soon faded when I blow dried my hair which was quite disappointing as I love the smell of freshly washed hair.

Overall I think that these seem like a lovely combo but unfortunately I don't see anything special about these products. On Neal and Wolf's website the shampoo is £11.50 for 250ml and the conditioner is £12.50 for a 200ml. I love to get a bargain so I don't think I'd personally splash this much on shampoo and conditioner. Although they seem like great products I think I'll stick to the ones I can buy from the supermarket.

  2. I do think cheaper, high street shampoos are getting so much better over time and that higher end are probably struggling to overtake and slowly, they're becoming on par. I have tried so many different high end shampoos and conditioners and haven't noticed any difference in my hair as opposed to using a £2 one!

  3. Oooh this is one of my fave shampoo and conditioning sets! But I agree, would definitely prefer cheaper ones that do more.
