      No More Flaking

      I suffer with an itchy scalp and have tried EVERYTHING! Every expensive shampoo you can think of, from John Masters, to Redken to Philip Kingsly to name a few. Then I found this! And its only £12.50! I use it with the partnering conditioner (also £12.50!), such good value for money. I don’t scratch and itch my scalp at all through the day (which used to be embarrassing!) and I also don’t have the flaking I used to get. My hair is coloured, there’s quite a lot of bleach in it and other ‘natural’ brands have left it feeling really dry, this one doesn’t! My hair feels pretty soft and looks shiny, not as silky as it used to when I used chemical based ‘plastic’ shampoos and conditioners but it’s a good middle ground for not having the nasty itching.

      Pleasantly surprised!

      I decided to try the hair products because I love so many other Balance Me products. It is free of sulphates so doesn't foam up as much as I am used to with other products. My hair feels much healthier and doesn't get greasy towards the end of the day! Product smells great as well!

      Sulphate free delight!

      Since cutting out parabens and sulphates from my skincare I wanted to do the same with the shampoo/conditioner and body products I use. This shampoo works so well, it leaves my hair clean, smells great and doesn't foam up as theres no sulphates! I was worried that switching to a natural shampoo would make my roots go greasy but it hasn't! I use this daily and can't recommend enough

      I love all my balance me products and was excited about this. I don't mind that it doesn't lather but it just isn't making my hair as clean as my old brand and it is becoming greasy very quickly. It would be useful to have some info on the back as to how much we should use. It is expensive so I started out using less than I would normally do, but each time I seem to be using more and still not getting good results.

      Tube is too hard to squeeze......

      I was excited to see the launch of the shampoo again as I used to use it before and loved it, but the tube is too hard to squeeze and it's almost impossible to get any product out, I have had to squeeze the shampoo in to another bottle which is annoying and time consuming, I wish balance me would sort out the packaging,

      Ok product but not easy to squeeze out

      My Mum has arthritis in her hands and she can't use this shampoo, as the bottle is so hard to squeeze. I have to get my boyfriend to squeeze it out.

      I was hoping for a lovely shampoo but tried to like it, just could not make a lather, had to use a palm full but still struggled. I bought the conditioner and again applied something similar. Could not comb my hair through afterwards. Wonder what is the problem?

      Hi Ruth,
      We’re so sorry to hear that the Protect and Shine Shampoo did not lather up as expected. As the formula is sulphate-free it will not ‘foam’ up in the way that many shampoo’s do. Giving your scalp a really good massage with Protect and Shine will remove any excess oils and dirt, but will not ‘foam’ up. As for the conditioner, it is enriched with Argan oil so should be easy to comb through, it could be that your hair requires something a little richer.

      We’d love to put this right for you so please do drop an email to info@balanceme.co.uk and we can find a solution asap!
      Best wishes,
      Rhyanna @ Balance Me

      Gorgeous natural shampoo

      I have been searching for a SLS-free shampoo and I have found the perfect match! It smells great, leaves my hair shiny and doesn't irritate my scalp. I also love the fact is it silicone free so my hair is not weighed down and has tons of volume now!

      Really Shiny!

      This is the best natural shampoo I have ever used - it does exactly what it says on the tube. My hair is so shiny after use.

      After washing my hair is shiny and soft and was very easy to comb through. No sulfates in either product so none of the usual itching from using a different product either - amazing!

      These products are excellent! I colour my hair a copper shade, and as red is notorious for fading quickly, I am particularly choosey as to what shampoo I use. I need something that doesn't strip or fade colour and as I work out daily, I also abuse my hair further by washing it each day! This new shampoo hits the nail on the head ( excuse the pun!). It's thick and luxurious and lathers enough to give a 'clean' feel. It rinses easily and leaves hair feeling nourished. And the fragrance is....beautiful!! It smells divine of creamy oranges. It reminds me of expensive chocolate orange creams! The conditioner is also a perfect match. When I saw the high percentage of argan oil in it, I was thrilled as I love this ingredient in skincare, and my scalp is my skin! It is like a silky glossy butter in the palm of your hand that could be mistaken for an expensive skin moisturiser. Spreads easily through hair and again, a beautiful fragrance. I left it on for a few minutes and it rinsed out quickly leaving a sleek feel to wet hair. I have wavy hair that I straighten and found that this shampoo and conditioner made blow drying my hair straight very easy and speedy. They controlled my waves well and no colour fade! The lovely combined fragrances of both linger on the hair too which is lovely. Your hair smells like you've spritzed a veil of perfume over it. A real joy to use. Both a pleasure to the senses, enjoyable to use and give excellent results.

      I was really impressed with Protect and Shine. I have problems with the majority of products which contain sulphates and irritate my scalp, but this didn't happen with Protect and Shine. My hair was left soft, shiny and manageable each time; no heaviness - amazing!
