Sunday is my favourite day of the week. A lovely, long day to do spend however you like. Take a trip somewhere, go out for a meal, watch films or play board games. I like to take some time on a Sunday to plan the week ahead, usually using my bullet journal. A perfect time to wash my hair with a super cleansing shampoo that will make it feel clean and fresh for the new week!
I put the Sunday Shampoo on my Christmas list this year. I know, shampoo for Christmas doesn’t sound the most exciting! But I’ve wanted to try it for about 4 years, yet just wouldn’t part with almost £20 for shampoo. That makes for an expensive hair wash! And anyway, I think a good Christmas gift is a treat you wouldn’t buy yourself normally. This was a good example of that, and I was so excited when I unwrapped it!
A bit more about my hair. I have long, waist-length brown hair. It’s very straight ( I wish it was curly, but curly-haired girls apparently wish their hair was straight. We all want what we can’t have!) and quite fine. My favourite way to wear it is curled, but I only do this about once a month. I can get away with washing it every 2-3 days and to be honest, I don’t use lots of products in it. Occasionally some mousse, salt spray or blow dry lotion for extra volume.
For years, I constantly repurchased the Boots Expert Removal shampoo. It was about £2, and properly cleansed my hair. For the price, it did a brilliant job of removing any product build-up, which could otherwise weigh your hair down, or even make it look dirty. Not a good look. For some reason, it was discontinued (I’m still sad about this) and have been looking for a replacement ever since. Suprispingly, there seems to be a gap in the market for clarifying, build-up removal shampoos.
So who should use this shampoo? Anyone who doesn’t have colour treated hair really. It is ideal for anyone wanting to be able to go longer between hair washes. Perfect if you need to detoxify your hair, whether that is from styling products, pollution, hard water and so on.
It is called a weekly shampoo, but I think you could use this at most hair washes. It isn’t drying at all (even if I skip conditioner!) yet somehow leaves my hair feeling super clean. Magic really. So does the Sunday shampoo work? Yes! I can now squeeze in an extra day in between hair washes, which is amazing, albeit with the help of some dry shampoo as always.
Buuut it is still £20, which is a lot of money for a shampoo. Although, if you did use this once per week, it would last a really long time. At the end of the day, I don’t mind paying for something that I know works really well. It does exactly what it says on the tin, and the Sunday Shampoo from Bumble and Bumble has filled the void in my beauty shelf for a great, cleansing shampoo.
Have you ever tried a detoxifying shampoo?
