I don’t feel like I spend a lot on hair care (apart from my hair cut – why does a wash, cut and blow cost me £37? Surely I’m getting ripped off somewhere), so it was a bit of a shock to my bank account when I spent a whopping £19 on a 250ml bottle of shampoo. I KNOW! But after hearing Anna rave about the Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo for year, I pushed the boat out and treated myself to some luxury hair care. That was back in the summer, and I’ve been using it on a semi-regular basis so I think I can finally share my thoughts.
For me, this wasn’t an impulse purchase. It took me about 4 months to pluck up the courage to spend that amount on one bottle of shampoo; I’m usually happy with whatever Herbal Essences bits I’ve got lurking in my stash. This also means that I don’t use the Sunday Shampoo for every hair wash. I wash my hair every 2-3 days, depending on whether I’ve been to the gym or not (spoiler: I probably haven’t), and I’d say this shampoo sneaks in on every 4th or 5th wash. For all the other washes I just use something fairly basic.
I love to use a remover shampoo, and since Boots discontinued the one I love, I had to find a new one. I’ve tested out a whole host, and this is probably the best one I’ve tried. But there’s a catch. Whilst the Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo does a fantastic job at removing excess product, it’s just too expensive. The Boots Remover Shampoo cost around 1/4 of what this costs, and I just think the price is a little too much for me to justify on a regular basis.
I’m obviously going to use it all up (I mean at that price, why wouldn’t I?) but I won’t be repurchasing it unless I spot it in a Cosmetics Company Outlet. It’s time to keep searching for the ultimate replacements for my favourite discontinued shampoo. Do you have any recommendations?
