For all my long-haired girls out there, or maybe it's just me, I hate washing my hair. It's long and it takes ages to dry, I always seem to lose a tonne of hair every time I wash it and it majorly freaks me out. I have been looking into other haircare products to make washing my hair a more enjoyable experience. I came across the Yes To range in TK MAxx quite some time ago. It is also available in Holland and Barrett and on ASOS. The cucumber shampoo, that I have been using, is available for £7.19 at ASOS and the conditioner is available for the same price (click here). Each bottle contains 500ml of product.
The major selling point of this shampoo for me is that it's sulfate-free. Sulfate shampoos are generally just not good news, I feel like it makes my hair weaker, shockingly sulfates are present in a ridiculous amount of widely available shampoos. I bought this shampoo for my Mom, the Cucumber range is meant for coloured hair. I haven't got any colour in my hair, hence the greys, but I still used it as I don't think it matters. This shampoo is 99% natural and I have included the ingredients below:
Water (Aqua), Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Spirulina Maxima Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Algin, Sea Water, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract*, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.
As you can see there are some chemical products in here, but also a lot of very good ingredients like cucumber, sunflower and aloe. The one thing I noticed immediately about this shampoo is that it feels so cooling when massaging it into my roots, it also smells lovely and feels very soothing. I really like the way it feels and the smell of cucumbers is always nice. Another difference is the shampoo appears to contain tiny grains:
The conditioner smells just as good and you don't need a lot at all. Whatever conditioner I apply to my hair is always very very little, with this one you need the tiniest amount. A little really does go a long way. It is the shampoo that has really wowed me in this range. One key thing for me is that it allows me to leave an even longer period of time between washes. I am not kidding when I say I hate washing my hair, as I work most days and hate using a hairdryer washing it during the week is horrible. I have to go to bed with it somewhat wet or damp and then it tends to look greasy or odd. I don't like it at all. I washed my hair today, the last wash before that was ten days ago. I know that is really bad, but in all that time it didn't look greasy or dirty or anything. Usually I wash my hair twice a week, and I feel with this shampoo I can wash it once a week no problem. Additionally, I don't loose nearly as much hair in the shower and it seems to detangle my hair just by washing it. Kind of a miracle product for me, I will definitely be repurchasing, curious to try the carrot shampoo and conditioner as well.
