Happy Hair Days :)

Hello you gorgeous bunch!

I am always after the next wonder product for my hair and try a lot of different shampoos and conditioners in my quest for happy healthy hair as that's where it all starts.

After trudging around my local Sainsbury's (Yes it is becoming my go to beauty bargain and find place - Love it!)  I came across these...

Happy Hair Days - Blueberry and Pear Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner - 300ml
£3.99 each (On offer at £2.66 until May 15th I think) 

I was so intrigued as I loved the bottles and the fact that they are SLS/SLES and Paraben free drew me in even more, but then it dawned on me that normally these sorts of shampoos don't lather and the conditioners never seem to condition so would these be another bunch of products that I end up throwing to the back of the bathroom cabinet. I then thought they are only £2.66 so I might as well try them as I love the idea of using shampoos and conditioners without them I just like to have my hair feeling clean after.

After smelling them all for what seemed like forever and squealing over every single fragrance (Coconut and Marshmallow for Colour, Lemongrass and Basil for Glossing, Rosemary and Mint for Thickening, Pomegranate and Ginger for Moisturising, Blueberry and Pear for Smoothing) I decided it was a toss up between the moisturising or the smoothing, I finally settled on the smoothing anyway.

I was so excited to try them out that I actually washed my hair 2 days earlier than planned and as soon as I had got in from shopping and I was pleasantly surprised!
The shampoo lathered up so well, felt really smooth and glossy as I wash rubbing it all over my hair plus it rinsed out really easy. The conditioner was gorgeous too really thick, creamy and moisturising it felt like every single strand of hair was covered in creamy goodness plus it rinsed out easily leaving no residue.

How the shampoo lathered up (only a penny sized used here)

My hair was left completely tangle free as I combed it through while wet and also once dry my hair was soft, smooth and de-frizzed with a lovely scent of Blueberry and Pear that certainly lingered around for about 2 days!

I think after using this I am definitely going to buy the glossing one or the moisturising one.

What do you guys think about SLS/SLES and Paraben free shampoos/conditioners? Were you under the same impression as me that they don't lather as well? Will you be trying any of these out?

  9. I use the coconut and marshmallow stuff and absolutely blimmin LOVE it, best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used! xoxo

  10. Hi! Just found your blog after googling the happy hair days shampoo and conditioner as I couldn't find a website for it. I love these products, especially for the price! I keep touching my hair because it feels so soft and silky! Oh and I bought the blueberry and pear variety, also from Sainsburys! xx

  11. I bought some of the marshmallow and coconut shampoo and conditioner a while ago, the shampoo is almost empty but I've been using it for about 16 weeks, it lasts for ages which I really like. The conditioner hasn't lasted as long, but I normally get through it twice as fast. Overall a great buy that I would recomend to anyone.
