If there is one thing that always need to look clean, shiny and healthy, then it's my hair. I have long chatain curlish hair: they are easy manageable I would say, easy to tie up in a chignon or leave it loose. I do not straighten my hair (no time and not too good for your hair either), and I like it that way…perhaps I stick to my natural look french beauty routine too!
Shampoos have a very important place in my bathroom. I have tried a lot and thought I would give my thoughts of one of them: Yes to Tomatoes Voluminizing shampoo.
Product name: Yes to Tomato Voluminizing shampoo
For: fine or long hair
Texture: light and creamy
Presentation: Bottle (big!)
Price: 9€ for 500ml
This is my first tried and tested session for the Yes to brand. I actually bought it impulsively, also driven by the relative affordable price, but I was very happy to give it a go!
I'm not sure if you are like me, but one of my main shampoo expectations is to deliver clean scalp, volume and shine to my hair. Aimed at long hair and named voluminizing shampoo, I think I could not go wrong with this one. It really defines and describes my hair type.
Looking closer at the content, the formulation is not bad at all. Enriched with some lovely hair loving fruit extracts and a blend of plant oils to nourish and soothe hair locks, the SLS-free formula of this shampoo seems quite impressive. The detergents selected are mild and gentle and are effective at cleansing away dirt and impurities.
Wondering about my experience?…Helas, the shampoo does not entirely work for me. Although it lathers really well and does a great job at cleansing, the results 2 days post-shampoo are just disappointing: my curly hair looks rather flat and also feels greasy. I have tried to use less product per usage or have tried to carefully double rinse but this did not improve the results.
Remember that shampoos are quite personal such as skincare and routine. I am not saying that this shampoo would not work on other hair type. It may, but it was definitely not my best haircare product.
….a disppointing performance!

PS: While writing this review, I did try another shampoo from the range (I wanted to give another chance to Yes) And surprise surprise, the Nourishing shampoo Yes to Carrots has been a real winner! It gives me the healthy and voluminous locks that I have been dreaming on.
What do you think? Have you used Yes to Shampoos?
