Winters have fully arrived in Delhi post Christmas and I love this winter feel. I am just crazy about it, be it cozying up in the blanket or having hot coffee. Winter dressing equals furry things- gloves, scarves, coats, jackets, BOOOOTSS, and last but not the least the GAAAJAR KA HALWA…: P
The only part I dislike about this chill is the dryness it gives to your face, hands, feet, hair…and the need to over moisturize. It’s a bit too hard for a super laid-back person like me.
Any ways I am not going to review some body cream lotion here, what I intend to review is Toni & Guy Moisture Injection Shampoo.
Normally I get bored of a shampoo after a few uses and move onto something else;
A few months back I read an article on this UK based brand Toni & Guy, Renowned worldwide for their fashion-led salons and expertise,
So, I googled and found something about the brand =
Toni & Guy is an international hair care business founded in London, United Kingdom in 1963 by brothers Giuseppe (Guy) and Gaetano (Toni) Mascolo. They were later joined by younger brothers Bruno and Anthony. There are more than 400 salons in the organization and it has won many hairdressing awards London Hairdresser of the Year (11 times) and South West Hairdresser of the Year 06.
It has its own UK magazine and in-salon television station ‘Toni and Guy TV ’, as well as salons around the world and academies in the UK, Ireland, Germany,USA, Norway, Canada, the Netherlands, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden and Malaysia. It also manufactures many products in the UK including hair care such as shampoos and styling products (LABEL M) and hair irons
So after seeing a lot of praise about their products, I kept in mind to use it someday.
Around 2 months back, I saw a small counter of Toni & Guy products at shoppers stop MGF Saket. Since, I had high hopes that their products would be decent enough I ended up buying the moisture injection shampoo and volume explosion conditioner.
What this product claims:
This is a super moisturizing shampoo and claims to ‘give dry, brittle hair improved strength and vitality’. It comes in a matt silver-colored bottle with bright pink logo and writing, and has a pump dispenser covered by a translucent cap.
I have normal/ straight hair but they tend to get dry as a result of my coloring sessions…
I generally use color protect shampoos and conditioners but haven’t been really satisfied with any brand.
So had high hopes on this.
My Experience with the Shampoo
The first thing I notice in any shampoo is its smell 😛 (I am a bit kiddish u see). It has extremely mild fragrance, reminds of the Johnson’s & Johnson’sshampoo we use for my nephew. It is absolutely colorless / transparent, has a gel like texture, no shimmer. Here is a picture of it on my palm:
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with the shampoo. I struggled a lot to lather this product and ended up using a lot of its quantity as I was worried it wasn’t going to clean the whole of my hair. After rinsing the shampoo out of my hair the smell of my hair wasn’t bad, in fact it smelt ok. My hair did feel softer …
Coming to the pros and cons
Pros of Toni & Guy Moisture Injection Shampoo
1. The shampoo is very mild, very light weight, leaves your super soft and hydrated.
2. Did not leave any residue
3. The pump action works very well and its easy to dispense the required quantity.
4. It’s easy to distribute and is neither too thick nor too runny.
Cons of Toni & Guy Moisture Injection Shampoo
1. the shampoo does not lather up well
2. It weighed down my hair badly; I am already a bit sick of my thin/limp hair. Had to shampoo again the following day. 🙂
3. the price = Rs.575 for the quantity = 250 ml is a bit too much
On the whole, it’s an ok shampoo; I won’t recommend it wholeheartedly. Although, good for people with extremely dry hair..Sigh… wish we had a toni and guy salon in delhi as their expertise is more in hair dressing. Will rate the shampoo 3 / 5… will use the volume explosion conditioner soon and review it too. Hope it turns out good..
And the search for MY HG shampoo is still on…
Have you tried any of the products by toni and guy?
