Do others get as excited about new brands and products as I do? I can’t really remember how I heard about Phil Smith hair products, but as soon as I did I knew I had to try them. They are sold in Sainsbury’s, so are pretty easy to get hold of, which is always great when it comes to cruelty-free products.
The first products I treated myself to was the Cocolicious Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, which I have really enjoyed using. Although the shampoo doesn’t beat my Lush Soak & Float Shampoo bar which is my absolute favourite (blog post to come), and is the one I use at weekends and when I am going out, I always like to try other brands and products too. These Phil Smith hair products are a great alternative for me to use, especially during the week, as I tend to exercise Monday-Friday, so my hair requires washing more regularly. Priced at only £3.50 each (with offers always on), price wise they are perfect, plus anything with a coconut scent wins me over instantaneously. They both contain coconut extract which works wonders for dry hair.
Because of the shampoo and conditioner success, I was keen to try some other Phil Smith hair products, so the next products I purchased were the Curly Locks Curl Control Cream and the Glam Shine Glossing Serum. Sadly, I wasn’t hugely impressed with these products, which was a disappointing to say the least. The Curly Locks Curl Control Cream smells really good, but personally for me, it didn’t work wonders for my hair. I didn’t find it offensive, it just didn’t control my curls as much as I had hoped. As for the serum, the pump didn’t even work properly which is extremely annoying, as every time I pump it, the product ends up all over the side of the bottle. The serum itself isn’t awful, but definitely isn’t the best I have come across.
A little let down by the second lot of products if I am completely honest, however I will not completely rule out Phil Smith, and would still be keen to try some of his other products. Please note however that not all of the products are vegan. They are all cruelty-free, but not all vegan, so best to check before you buy. All the products above are vegan, of course.
