Leo Bancroft – Blissfully Bouncy Volumising Shampoo & Conditioner
This post may contain affiliate links.
You may have seen that last week I reviewed the new Moroccan Miracle Argan Oil from Leo Bancroft (you can read that review here). Well today I am reviewing Blissfully Bouncy Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner* also from Leo Bancroft. Leo Bancroft products are available exclusively at Tesco supermarkets and online at Tesco.com, and I think it’s great to be able to browse beauty products whilst you are doing your weekly food shop.
These Blissfully Bouncy hair products are aimed at those with ‘fine hair that needs some oomph’ and have been developed to give volume at the roots and to help your hair ‘bounce’ as you walk. The shampoo is a clear gel with no fragrance and it lathers fairly well, and the directions on the tube say that you should focus on the roots when massaging the shampoo into the hair and scalp.
Blissfully Bouncy Conditioner is a thick white cream with a gentle scent. To me it has the thickness of a moisturising hair mask rather than a regular conditioner and you don’t need to apply too much to cover all of your hair.
I have thick hair so this shampoo isn’t really aimed at people like me, but I do find it difficult to get extra volume into my hair and often feel that it looks rather flat after I have straightened it, so I was looking forward to trying these Leo Bancroft products to see if they would give my hair some extra ‘oomph’. After using these Blissfully Bouncy products and then drying my hair I’m not really sure the hair had any extra volume at the roots, but it did feel very smooth and shiny and I did find it slightly easier to add volume using my straighteners by lifting and slightly twisting them whilst straightening.
If you’re wanting a miracle to add lots of bouncy volume and oomph to your hair then I’m not sure these products will live up. However, they do clean and soften the hair nicely and do seem to give the hair a bit of extra weight to it providing you put a bit of effort in to it whilst you are drying it. Leo Bancroft also does a range of shampoos and conditioners for blonde and brunette hair (the packaging is similar to the Sheer Blonde and Brilliant Brunette ranges from John Frieda but slightly cheaper).
The Leo Bancroft shampoo does contain sodium laureth sulfate which is an ingredient that I do try to avoid in hair products as it can cause my scalp to itch so I’m not sure that this is a product that I would usually buy for myself. However I noticed that there is a gentle Leo Bancroft Sulphate Free Shampoo which I would definitely like to try. I was impressed with the Argan Oil, and next on my list of Leo Bancroft styling products that I would like to try are the Dry Shampoo and the Curl Cream (I am on the hunt for a decent product to stop my flyaway ends when I leave my hair to go curly). Overall I would say that Leo Bancroft is a good budget haircare range that you can pick up whilst doing your supermarket shopping!
Leo Bancroft Blissfully Bouncy Shampoo is priced at £4 for 250ml, available from Tesco. Blissfully Bouncy Conditioner is priced at £4 for 250ml, available from Tesco. Plus there is currently 1/3 off all Leo Bancroft haircare products at Tesco until 7th April 2014, so what are you waiting for?
