Review: VO5 Nourish Me Truly shampoo and conditioner

I thought I'd show you the new shampoo and conditioner I've been using over the past month. I don't usually review shampoos & conditioners, because I don't pay too much attention to them. I've never found a 'holy grail' product, so I buy a new one each time mine runs out in the hope that I'll find one that is good enough for my dreaded locks. When I used to dye my hair, I'd look for one to optimise and keep whatever colour I'd slathered on that month, and when I stopped dying it last year, I instead headed for those that would nourish my hair. After dying and bleaching my hair nonstop for 6 years, it's in pretty bad condition. It's dry and brittle and can be an absolute nightmare; I'm sure a lot of you know what I mean.

So when I was in my local Boots, I saw that both shampoo/conditioner were on offer. I've never really used VO5 products, not due to any particular reason other than they haven't jumped out at me on the shelves before. But with the combination of the glossy pink bottles and the lure of an offer, I was intrigued. After choosing from about 5 different types - including 'Plump Me Up', 'Gloss Me Smoothly', 'Cherish My Colour', 'Give Me Moisture' and probably a few more I have forgotten - I decided with 'Nourish Me Truly.' If there is one thing my hair needs, it's nourishment! I use a hair mask once a week (which I shall review soon) and even with the extra nourishment it can still be a nightmare to deal with.

After being used for a month, I have to say, I am impressed. So impressed I have gone out and replaced my diminishing supplies, a rare sight for me and hair products! My hair feels smoother, it's glossier (which is important to me,) and most importantly, it feels nicer. I'm not saying it's perfect, I still have split ends that go frizzy, it can still be horribly dry, but in general, it does feel better. I don't think it's my holy grail product, I am definitely still on the hunt for that, but I think I'll venture into VO5 products a bit more and see what this range of shampoos and conditioners have on offer!

To those that have used VO5 products and this range, what do you think?
