Last year I shared my thoughts about a haircare product, which left me very impressed, from the brand called Ogario London – the Restore & Shine Hair Mask. I looked at the review not too long ago and thought why didn’t I try more products from this brand. After all, it’s an award-winning haircare range with natural, carefully selected ingredients. After thoughtful consideration, I decided to go with Hydrate and Shine line. Hydrate and Shine is specially formulated for thirsty, weak, and damaged hair. Mostly, color-treated or over-processed hair that needs some extra TLC. All Ogario London shampoos and conditioners come in full-size bottles (250ml) or travel-size bottles (100ml).
Hydrate & Shine Shampoo* (100ml, travel size)
It’s an entirely overused cliche that we all want shiny hair. A cliche that could not be more true! No wonder the most common promise in almost every hair care product is to give shine. To be honest, I often fall for such pledges, but not all products deliver what they have declared, so I was genuinely interested to see if this shampoo would live up to its promises. The Hydrate and Shine shampoo has a thick, dark brown consistency with a herbal scent. It’s not the thickest shampoo I’ve used, but it’s pretty heavy. Despite being thick, when it comes to contact with water, it starts to foam like mad and gives a nice refreshing feeling. Also, it is easy to rinse out. The shampoo leaves the hair hydrated and with slightly lifted roots. Despite containing citrus oils, it does not give any additional shine, though, my hair looks healthy and bouncy.
Hydrate and Shine Conditioner* (100ml)
A very unexpected thing happened with this conditioner. It is probably the first time in my life when I finished my conditioner and shampoo at the same time. I think this has a lot to do with the consistency of the conditioner, which seems pretty light. I remember thinking to myself that it probably won’t do anything good for my dry hair ends. Well, I was wrong. Despite being light, it’s an intense conditioner, which gives softness, sleekness, and hydration. Just the right amount of it, so it won’t weigh the hair down or leave flyaways or frizz. Similar to the shampoo, I didn’t notice any additional shine. Which is unfortunate, but I would still consider this a great product that is worth a try.
All products are available online at LoveLula or Ogario London.
Have you tried anything from Ogario London range?
I’ve heard great things about this brand, need to give it a go! x
It’s definitely worth a try! x
Wow these sound amazing! And congrats for actually finishing the shampoo + conditioner at the same time. That’s such a rare occurrence!
Hehe, it is rare, isn’t it?! I was surprised by this myself.
Lovely review! I have to say that I did try Ogario in the past and I liked the shampoo but not the conditioner. It just wasn’t enough for my hair or maybe I’m just spoilt because of my everlasting love for John Masters Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler 🙂 xx
Thanks Yvonne! Oh yes, I agree that John Masters Citrus & Neroli Detangler is waaay more intense than this Hydrate and Shine conditioner, especially if the detangler is used as a leave-in. Have you tried the Revive and Shine line from Ogario? I’m considering whether to try it or not.
The conditioner sounds lovely, it’s a shame it didn’t make your hair as shiny as you hoped! I’m impressed you managed to finish the shampoo and conditioner at the same time – I don’t think I ever have haha xx
