Last week I tried out the Yves Rocher Purifying Shampoo for the first time and this is my first impression review.
First things first, the Yves Rocher Purifying Shampoo has a very distinct scent. The shampoo itself is made with botanical extracts of nettle and it does have a scent that reminds me of plants. Having said that, it is not an unpleasant scent at all and it is not over-powering in a way that you can smell it all the time. The scent is very clean and fresh and I did not mind it at all.
The Yves Rocher Purifying Shampoo is aimed for oily hair and you get 300ml of product. My hair tends to get oily at the roots and dry at the ends, so I would not use this shampoo every time I wash my hair, but do enjoy using a purifying shampoo once a week or more if my hair is particularly oily. A trick I learnt recently is to apply the purifying shampoo on the hair whist it is dry. So before actually wetting the hair apply a dollop of shampoo to the roots of the hair to get rid of the oil. Massage in, then rinse and shampoo again if needed. Once the hair is wet you cannot get rid of the oil, thus doing so on dry hair actually targets the oiliness.
The shampoo’s consistency is more like a liquid gel rather than your standard creamy shampoo, which is typical with purifying shampoos. The bottle is quite handy and easy to get as much product as you like without having to hold the cap in one hand and pour with the other. Moreover, this shampoo is Silicone, Paraben and Colorant Free, so no nasties! The product is marked to be good for 6 months, which just goes to show how natural the Yves Rocher products are and how little preservatives are used.
All in all, I really enjoyed using the Yves Rocher Purifying Shampoo and it currently has its place in my shower rack where I will be using it weekly.
