Sorry I'm Washing My Hair ;)

If you've been reading my little space on the interweb you'll know that I am a bit of a shampoo whore. I have a few that I fall back on but when a new shampoo appears I want to try it!
Up until recently Clynol wasn't a brand I was that familiar with, I'd tried a few things but it was a brand that had pretty much fell under my radar. Over the last couple of years though I've  become a lot more familiar with this top salon brand. I've tried products from the Revive and Repair range, and more recently from the Colour and Shine line, and I have to say I've been pretty impressed with the products, in fact the Colour and Shine products went straight into my top 5 shampoos and conditioners of all time !!!
Brands though are forever innovating and reformulating their products though so these products are no more, instead Clynol have introduced their new all encompassing Care and Style range.
Divided into several section the Care and Style range contains care products, including shampoos, conditioners and treatments to deal with different hair types, and Style products, a range of styling products to help you create the style you want. I was very kindly sent two products from the Colour + Care line. Although I've moved away from the blonde, I still colour my hair so this range is right up my street

Clynol Salon Exclusive Colour & Care Enrich Colour Shampoo

The Colour & Care range comprises of 5 products containing Liquid Jewel extract to nourish and protect your hair, whilst helping to preserve your colour for up to 30 washes.

I was kindly sent a bottle of the enrich shampoo. Packaged in a pearlised effect bottle you get 300ml, which is a really good size for a salon product. The shampoo itself is quite runny, and has a white pealised finish, and a fresh smell.

It took a little to get a good lather, but it rinsed easily and afterwards my hair felt super clean. I didn't notice any extra shine which was a bit of a disappointment and my hair was left a little bit fly away but since my hair is still recovering from my holidays, and lots of extra heat and sun damage I don't think it did too badly, do I like as much and Dazzle and Shine, not quite but it's still a nice shampoo that would definitely have a place in my top 10 :)

Clynol Salon Exclusive Colour & Care Shimmer Bio-Phase Conditioner

I have to say I love spray on / leave in conditioners. probably more than conventional hair conditioners. My hair has a major tendency to tangle and know especially when it's wet. A good leave in conditioner can make a huge difference when it comes to combing my wet hair.

Alongside the shampoo I was also sent a completely new product for Clynol, the Bio-Phase Conditioner. Packaged in a 250ml pump action spray bottle, this product has a very liquidy almost watery texture, and it has a sweet almost vanilla musk fragrance.

I sprayed the product into towel dried hair and then I styled it like I normally would. I have to say the Clynol shampoo left my hair remarkably smooth and not that tangled, but a few squirts of the conditioner definitely made a bit smoother. From the name I was expecting it to have some sort of shimmer in it, but I couldn't see anything on my hair even when it was dry, nor did I notice any additional shine :(. I think this is a pretty decent leave in spray, but I think I maybe need something with a little bit more moisture.

If the Colour & Care line isn't for you there are plenty more products in the Care and Style range that maybe better for you including products for fine, thinning hair, dry damaged hair and much more.
These products are available to buy from Beauty Bay, and Feel Unique, or for your local stockists / Clynol salon please check out the Clynol website. The Clynol Salon Exclusive Colour & Care Enrich Colour Shampoo retails at around £8.90 for 300ml and the Clynol Salon Exclusive Colour & Care Shimmer Bio-Phase Conditioner retails at around £9.90 for 250ml.
