Product Review: Eleven Australia Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

With my long hair I am always on the lookout for products that can help maintain my locks, and giving birth just a few months ago, trying to avoid my hair becoming a mess as they often say hair does after giving birth and your hormone levels change. So here are my thoughts on the *Eleven Australia Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner;

What They Say:
Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo : "A nourishing shampoo that replenishes moisture. Suitable for normal to dry hair."

Hydrate My Hair Moisture Conditioner: "Ultra-nourishing conditioner that replenishes moisture. Suitable for all hair types."

RRP: Shampoo: $20.95 (300ml), Conditioner $21.95 (300ml) – Available from select stockists and  Eleven Australia Online  

What I Say:
I recently tried the Eleven Australia 3 Minute Repair Rinse Out Treatment, which is absolutely amazing, and so efficient in just three minutes, and I am also loving the Miracle Treatment and the Make Me Shine, so I was expecting big things of the Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo and conditioner as well.

As the name suggests, Eleven Australia is an Australian owned brand, as well as the products are made in Australia and not tested on animals, which is a great bonus.
The shampoo is extremely concentrated, so although I have long and thick hair, I don’t need a lot of shampoo to create a nice soft lather. And even though I only wash my hair every second day just one shampooing is sufficient to make my hair feel soft and clean.

The conditioner is also quite concentrated, and absorbs instantly into my hair, and afterwards it rinses out quickly and easily without leaving behind a greasy residue. Once towel dried, my hair is easy to comb, with minimal knots and tangles.

Most days, I let my hair dry naturally, and once it is dry, I immediate notice how much softer it is, clearly having benefited from a moisture boost, and cannot stop running my hands through it. Even my dry ends feel and look healthier.
The conditioner does unfortunately contain silicone (Cyclomethicone), which can make the hair feel weighed down and heavy, but that is far from the case - my hair is left feeling nice and light. Both the shampoo and the conditioner also contain parabens (benzyl benzoate), but unfortunately that is still the case with most products.

The shampoo and the conditioner come in simple, yet modern cream coloured square bottles with rounded corners, and simple turquoise writing front and back. The bottles have a flip lid at the top, which makes them easy to use, even in the shower with wet hands.

One of the first things that strike me, is the smell of the products, which although it is sweet and lolly-like, they smells absolutely amazing, but without being overpowering or sickening sweet. And once the hair is dry, it still has a gorgeous but subtle scent that lasts throughout the day.

At $20.95 and $21.95 each for a 300ml bottles, the shampoo and conditioner are in my eyes reasonably priced considering they are salon products or such high quality.

What I like:
  • The simplistic yet very modern bottles
  • The gorgeous scent
  • The price – compared to other salon hair products of the same quality, these are very well priced!
  • Australian owned and made products

What I don’t Like:
  • That the conditioner contains silicone, and both products also contain parabens – it would be lovely if they were free from these nasties!

However, all in all, these are great products, clearly helping to restore some moisture in my dry lock, as it even after the first use I could clearly both see and feel the difference – well done Eleven Australia, another brilliant product!
