I came across this duo while passing the hair care aisle at my local Target. I was only there to pick up some travel stuff for a flight the next morning, but I caught a glimpse of the bottles and they just drew me in (I'm a sucker for peach shades lol). I had never heard of the line before, didn't have any information about it, but all it took was one sniff for me to throw them in my cart....price be damned! The shampoo and conditioner are $10 each and contain 10 oz each. Its actually not too bad now that I think about it, but the soft rubberized matte bottles do look pretty small (and let me just say, expertly designed).
This shampoo is called The One Signature Shampoo. It claims it's for all hair types, is lightly clarifying, high lathering, safe for daily use and is sulfate free. These products contain a signature complex called "Zip Up Technology" that apparently strengthens hair, "zip ups" split ends, targets weak areas of the hair, smooths the cuticles, diminishes the appearance of damage, and protects hair from environmental stressors all while preventing color from fading.
That is definitely a LOT of claims!
After reading the previous review I was a little concerned, I'll be honest. After finally getting a chance to use them today however, I'm a COMPLETE convert!
My hair is cut into an A-line (just above the shoulder) bob that is naturally pretty straight, although I do have areas underneath that are wavy and typically frizz up. Before I got my hair cut I had a really bad problem with breakage, shedding and split ends. I haven't colored my hair in almost 4 years at this point. I still have a lot of apparent broken hairs that have been growing out, and I've tried a lot of products over the last few months. This is the first shampoo and conditioner combo that has made a VERY noticeable difference.
I tend to lean toward volumizing products in general, but it's hard to find volumizing products that also make my hair look smooth. Typically it's one or the other.
This combo makes my hair feels SO soft, so full of body, yet, it's SO smooth and shiny!
The shampoo is a little thick, which is the only reason I'm docking a lippie. I had to add a bit more water to my hair once I started to work the shampoo in to get a good lather. It's not AS thick as some other shampoos I've tried recently, but it was enough that I had to work just a tad harder. The conditioner was perfect and actually next time, I'll use a bit less because of how easily it glides through the hair, but with the conditioner you really need to rinse VERY well. I recommend rinsing a bit longer than maybe you normally would (this also could potentially have been the issue for the previous reviewer because I feel no buildup whatsoever).
The scent is absolutely incredible. I cant quite put my finger on it but it smells like a very clean light floral with a hint of a vanilla finish. I hate to say floral because it doesn't really quite give the right impression. I'm not a floral fan and I am in LOVE with this scent. It definitely lingers in the hair for a really long time, so if you don't like the scent this may not be for you. It's been 12 hours and my hair still has the scent. It's not overbearing, or fake smelling or perfumey...it's just a really clean scent. I love it.
All in all, I'm really impressed with how my hair looks, feels, and smells. I'm definitely going to be purchasing again and in fact, I think I'm going to stock up on a few bottles of each and may even try out some of the styling products.
