The Un-Shampoo

The beauty world seems to have fallen for the Purely Perfect Cleansing Creme which is a cleansing creme but you use in place of a Shampoo. I must admit the words un-shampoo on the back scared me. Yes, I wash my hair a little too often but un-shampooing, well that just sounds scary!

It looks like a normal luxury shampoo; beautiful packaging and a fancy pump both of which very much attracted me. When I first used it I noticed it is very different to what I am use to. You get no lather but instead a mix of essential oils and aloe vera which cleanse your hair and scalp without any stripping. Unlike conventional shampoos which leave your hair looking great but do very little for it’s actual condition. I used this for a few weeks, it left my hair hydrated and smoother whilst still feeling clean but I’m not hooked quite yet.

The price tag for starters is £36 and even not requiring conditioner it is still quite expensive. I think this is something you must commit to, no stopping and starting however sometime I just need the instant gratification I get from a few chemicals.

It’s a great product for anyone trying to get out of using normal stripping shampoo but like a true shampoo addict I simply can’t make the switch permanent.

Have you tried any cleansing, detergent free shampoos? What do you think?

    This does sound like it would be really good but at nearly £40 not sure it is worth it!!

    Ooh it is quite expensive. But I'm with you on the fact it has a pump!- Always a plus!

    I've never heard of un-shampooing before. I can understand the appeal for it though!

    That bottle would look beautiful in a bathroom but like you say I don't think I would be able to stop using foaming shampoos permanently.

    Ouch, that is pricey. Still it would be a very interesting product to try!
