Product Review: Palmolive Naturals Multi Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

Having long hair, which has been coloured countless times, and not to mention withstand daily sessions with the hairdryer and straightener, I am continuously on the lookout for a shampoo and conditioner which will help look after my hair. Here are my thoughts on the *Palmolive Naturals Multi Repair Shampoo and Conditioner;

What They Say:
"Palmolive Naturals Multi Repair Shampoo and Conditioner helps to reform damaged tresses in just seven washes. The formula aims to help repair multiple signs of damage. Enriched with 100 per cent natural propolis extract, both shampoo and conditioner help to revitalise exhausted hair".

RRP: Shampoo (400ml) and Conditioner (375ml) $4.99 each – Available from Priceline, Select Pharmacies and supermarkets

What I say:
My first impression of the Palmolive Naturals Multi Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, is how gorgeous they both smell – a very pleasant floral scent, so I was looking very forward to using the product.

With the name 'Naturals', it straight away makes me think that the products contains natural ingredients. So I decided to inspect the ingredients closer, and can see that it contains propolis extract, which is a natural substance found in tree resin, and often harvested by honeybees. The propolis ingredient is meant to make hair shinier and stronger. It is intended for damaged and brittle hair.

The white pearlescent shampoo froths up very easily, and with only a very little shampoo needed. So definitely no need to shampoo a second time. Afterwards I add the thick and creamy conditioner to the lengths of my hair, and leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing it out.

It is a little difficult to completely rinse out the conditioner, as it is almost as if my hair remains a little greasy no matter how long I rinse. Once towel dried, my hair is very easy to comb, and it smells fantastic. And once dry, it looks shiny and healthy, and the usual frizz in my hair seems to have reduced considerably. And my hair still smells great – even my husband noticed the nice fragrance.

The shampoo comes in a large orange bottle with a flip lid at the top, while the conditioner which comes in an orange tube is designed to stand on the flip-lid.

Unfortunately, the shampoo and conditioner also contain harmful additives and chemicals such as sulfates, phosphates, and parabens, and unfortunately the conditioner also contains dimethicone, a silicone, which is has the purpose of making it easier to comb tangled hair, as well as to give hair a brighter shine. It simply forms a lubricating coat around each strand of hair so that a comb will move through the hair with less resistance. Sadly after continued use, I do find that, although my hair looks healthy and shiny, the products are starting to build up a little in my hair, making feel very heavy. And in spite of not using the conditioner on my scalp, but only in the lengths of my hair, I also find that after a while I start to get little pimples around the hairline.

And at just $4.99 each for such large bottles, the Palmolive Naturals Multi Repair Shampoo and Conditioner really are a great value for money for supermarket/drugstore products, and they should not be compared to salon products 4-5 times more expensive. So all in all it is a good shampoo and conditioner, which makes the hair feel soft, look healthy and shiny and not to mention smell great, so if you have dry and damaged hair and are looking for bargain products, I highly recommend that you try these products – you’ve got nothing to lose!
