      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great bargain shampoo for the whole family that is cheap but doesn't feel it

      ===SHAMPOO NOW COMES IN A TALL ROUND CLEAR BOTTLE AND IS A CLEAR GREEN GEL LIKE TEXTURE=== ===Why I Got This=== I am not a great believer in the claims made by various shampoos but I do like tea tree products so searched this oneout on the Tesco website. I was surprised what a large battle oyu get for your money. ===The Brand=== Made for Tesco. This is an everyday product but does not appear to be marketed as their 'Everyday Value' range as Tesco sell a cheaper peach colour 'Everyday Value' shampoo at 40p per litre. ===The Product=== Everyday shampoo for all hair types. Large transparent plastic bottle, 750 mls. Has transparent label and mint green screw top lid which is also a flip top. The thick clear shampoo is a pale green in colour and quite thick. Made in UK for Tesco. Use within 24 months. The bottle states it is 'specially formulated with natural extract to leave your hair feeling soft, healthy and manageable'. ===Cost=== 88p. ===Other Fragrances=== * Jojoba and Balsam * Apple and Aloe Vera * Coconut ===My Opinion=== I have always liked using tea tree products and used to get a lot of them from Avon until they foolishly discontinued them all. I have also got some from the Body Shop but they are quite expensive, so I thought I would look on the Tesco website and then found this one. Not sure why I have never bought it before really. Anyway the bottle is huge and will last me absolutely ages - so is great value at 88p. The colour is quite a light green whereas most of the other tea tree things I have bought have been more of a darker green, but that does not matter. The shapoo is clear and with a good thick texture. It does smell of tea tree but not very strongly. I would have liked more of a smell perhaps but for 88p you cannot expect too much. Also as it is marketed for the whole family perhaps it has to be a bit milder smelling. However in use I found this a great shampoo. I only used a little and it lathered up better than any I have used for years. It gave a lovely thick and smooth lather which rinsed out easily. Also it must be good as it managed to remove some Body Shop oil I was using on the ends of my hair - so it can't be bad. This is cheap but not the cheapest one that Tesco does. They have other fragrances in the range and when I eventually get to the bottom of my bottle I would like to try them too - especially the coconut one. The smell is quite clean and refreshing and quite mild - definitely one for the men as well - or children. A great bargain buy. I will never understand why people spend so much on expensive shampoos. After washing my hair feels fine - not dry at all - and I quite often do not use conditioner afterwards either. The reverse of the bottle has all the ingredients listed if you are interested. ===Star Rating=== 5 stars. ===Would I Recommend?=== Yes. ===Website=== www.tesco.com

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice enough shampoo and cheap to buy, unfortunately it's not cleansing enough for me

        I bought a bottle of Tesco's Tea Tree Shampoo after an emergency meeting at school. There had been, apparently, a major outbreak of headlice in the school and while Year One were largely unaffected all parents were asked to some some kind of tea tree based headlice repellent in an attempt to kill off these revolting little pests. That's the headlice, not the kids. I already use Vosene's excellent version but find these days it's making Hollie's hair dull, so I decided to take the advice of the school nurse (who chaired the meeting) and bought this mega cheap bottle. At 88p for a 750ml bottle I wasn't expecting much; I opened the bottle before buying to check it smelled Tea Tree enough to be effective in the battle of the bugs and was reassured by a relatively strong aroma, although it's not as harsh as the Vosene shampoo and smells a little creamier overall. I think it's much better suited to young children with this more gentle fragrance as sometimes Hollie's hair would still smell quite strongly of Tea Tree even a couple of days after washing with Vosene, while I do like the fresh fragrance of Tea Tree I'm glad this one has been toned down a little really. This is quite a thin shampoo and it's ridiculously easy to squeeze out more than you need. The bottle has changed significantly recently and rather than the 'eugh' bottle you can see above it's now packaged in a cylindrical bottle which to me looks more stylish, in an Avon kinda way. It lathers beautifully, much better than I was expecting based on the price and thin appearance of the shampoo - I recommend making sure your hair is dripping wet before application as this will help the bubbles build up, I sometimes add more water to Hollie's hair mid-lather if I notice the shampoo is starting to become stubborn as she likes a head full of bubbles in the bath! On my own hair I find rinsing the shampoo out is a quick and easy process, but it seems to cling to Hollie's much younger hair and I have to run the shower over her hair for an age before I'm confident that it's all gone - I can always tell because during the rinsing process there's a slightly sticky feel to her scalp, I have to wait until this sticky feeling has gone and then rinse a little more to ensure the length of her hair is free of shampoo. The main reason I'm so vigilant with rinsing this shampoo is basically because if even a small amount is missed it makes her scalp itch badly, I actually thought she'd caught headlice after I'd been using this Tesco shampoo for a week as she kept scratching behind her ears - a thorough combing revealed nothing and I quickly realised it must have been the effect of shoddy rinsing due to the fact that hair wash time that morning had been a very rushed affair! I'd say this shampoo cleans adequately, no better. It doesn't leave hair shiny and immediately after washing we've all noticed our hair is ridiculously tangled up and dry feeling, having said that it's not a particularly drying shampoo but it does make our freshly washed hair quite hard to manage at first brushing. This can be helped by using a good conditioner afterwards (not the matching Tea Tree one, which is frankly rubbish) but I always worry that I'm taking away from the repellent properties by using a conditioner with a different fragrance which could, in theory, mask the all-important Tea Tree smell. I wash my hair once a day but even with such a short time in between washes I find that my hair feels and looks dirtier than it should, my hair also lacks shine when I use this particular shampoo for any period of time so I tend to go for something else personally. At five years old Hollie's hair has a gorgeous shine anyway, and the shampoo doesn't spoil this but I notice her hair needs washing more frequently now I've been using this Tesco version - this isn't a biggie as she baths every day anyway, and it's no extra effort to wash her hair than to tie it up on non-hair wash days but I wish the cleansing aspect was a little better in all honesty. Nit-wise, Hollie hasn't picked them up despite being good friends with a little girl whose mother doesn't seem to care that she's crawling with lice. This was also the case with Vosene, so I suspect the Tea Tree properties are just as good in this cheaper bottle of shampoo - please note here that using this shampoo won't get rid of headlice if your child has already caught them, it may force a single rogue headlice off the hair but once the (uber fast) egg laying process has begun then you'll either need to follow the wet combing method or buy a more specialised headlice treatment. I personally do believe it helps to protect children (adults too I suppose) from catching them in the first place so during term time I'll continue to use this shampoo, or maybe I'll go back to the Vosene one as I prefer the cleaning abilities and also how soft it leaves our hair in comparison to this one.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A shampoo that's a bit different to the norm

        I didn't invite headlice 'round for tea they just followed the kids home from school one day. Unfortunately they were a bugger to get of rid of. Various chemical treatments and combing conditioner through the hair were short term cures as though the lice are easily got rid of the eggs are another story. Key was to stop the lice wanting to crawl onto the kids heads in the first place- that's where tea tree oil comes in. Known for it's anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties it's also supposed to be a headlice deterrent. When we finally managed to get rid of the headlice I wanted something to keep them from coming back and as they apparently hate tea tree oil I bought the shampoo. It wasn't hard to find Tesco sold it cheap- 88p for 750ml at the moment. The shampoo has changed appearance since the above picture was taken, now the bottle is taller making it easier to hold, the lid has a flip top. The label reads 'Everyday Shampoo' Tea Tree for all hair types, it doesn't claim to be a headlice deterrent. The shampoo itself is bluey green in colour with a nice consistency, it's not thick but not runny either making it easy to apply. The smell of tea tree is very distinctive quite medicinal minty and mentholish? probably an acquired taste- I do like it though. Easy to use it's just the usual- apply a blob to wet hair, lather then rinse thoroughly. Because it's not too thick I don't need much to cover my head. It doesn't irritate but certainly wakes my scalp up with a slight refreshing tingle. My hair feels slightly 'dry' whilst rinsing but a blast with the hairdryer soon softens it up. The shampoo is mild enough not to strip my hair so I don't have to condition it. I don't get really tangled hair anyway so can't comment on whether it lessens or worsens them. It leaves my hair feeling and looking clean and shiny. The smell although strong when freshly washed fades fast. I don't use this shampoo as often anymore but buy it when it takes my fancy, at the moment I'm using tea tree shower gel and so will probably buy this shampoo when I run out of my current shampoo. The burning question- Did it stop the headlice from coming back? No it didn't seem to- the only thing that worked altogether was leaving primary school!. Even though it didn't do what I bought it for I would still recommend it and have continued to use it off and on. 5 Stars from me because it cleans my hair!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Nice lather shampoo.

        I am often just looking around for a cheaper shampoo, I don't really have a favourite one and just look for one that takes my fancy at the time I need to buy one. This is the one that took my fancy at the time, I hadn't tried it before so thought I'd give it a try. I don't mind buying a cheaper brand but it has to wash well. The shampoo is housed in a clear plastic bottle which has a flip back lid. The colour of the shampoo is a nice pale green colour, it looks nice in the bottle and caught my eye. It has a nice tea tree smell to it, one that isn't too strong but nice enough for a cheaper shampoo. I like the smell of this one quite a lot. I have bought other brands of tea tree shampoo and this one isn't quite as strong as some others on the market, so if you are wanting to buy one that has more of a tea tree smell, this one isn't that strong, so that is worth thinking about before purchasing this one. But it is fine for myself and my family. It is easy to squeeze the bottle and pour the shampoo onto the hands. It doesn't drip down the bottle because the consistency is not runny. It is quite a thick shampoo and quite a soft texture. It gives a good lather on the hair with just a small amount needed to give a good lather, it is easy to rinse too. It doesn't take much time to rinse it from the hair. I like the way it washes well and leaves my hair clean and soft. I cannot feel any tingling on my hair while washing it but that is fine and not a problem for my hair but it does leave it nice and shiny and in a good condition. My grandchildren have used this shampoo, their hair is obviously much thinner than mine but and so for the younger ones I just use half the amount I use for my own hair. It has left all of our hair looking nice and with a good shine to it. It doesn't leave the hair all tangled and knotted. It just feels soft and smooth. For the price of just 88p for a 750ml bottle, I think it is really good value for money and a good one for families. The quality is really good too and it isn't a waste of money, unlike some other brands I have bought. I will buy this one again, it meets all the qualities I need from a shampoo for myself and that of my family. I do recommend it if you are looking to buying a cheaper shampoo. I don't think you would be disappointed with this shampoo. Washes well indeed and leaves the hair with a nice shine. The bottle is recyclable. I rate it 5 stars.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          a nice smelling shampoo for a fraction of the price of branded products

          I chop and change my shampoos quite a lot and don't really have a favourite brand as my hair is not that fussy, I just usually go for whatever is on offer. I decided a few months back to try a tescos own brand shampoo, it was miles cheaper than the branded types so I thought it was worth a go. I went for the tesco tea tree shampoo for normal hair, I can never really tell if I have dry hair or greasy because it can be both, so I tend to go for shampoo for "normal" hair. There is also a coconut shampoo for dry/damaged hair in the same range as this if that would be more suited to your hair type. The shampoo comes in a 750ml bottle and lasts me for months (I wash my hair nearly every day) unlike the photograph on here the bottle is cylinder shaped (I think it used to be square like the picture depicts) and has a flip top lid. The shampoo itself has a nice smell and is not too overpowering, the texture is quite thick so it stays in your hand and doesn't run off and it lathers up well when you rub it into your hair. I have quite long hair and don't need to use much of the shampoo to give my hair a good clean unless its been a day or 2 since I last washed it. The price of the shampoo at the moment is about 88p which is really good value considering you are getting 750mls for that price and some branded shampoos can be 3 or 4 times that price! If you are looking to save some money and are not to fussed about what shampoo you use then I would definitely give this shampoo a go, you can't really go wrong for 88p, I will certainly be continuing to buy it.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          See review.

          I like to buy lots of different brands of shampoos because I do not have a favourite one, I do buy ones that I like a lot of which I have tried many times and I am always on the search for ones that I have not bought before and ones that I like the look of on the shelves in shops or just ones that take my fancy at the time and this is one of my latest ones that I spotted and decided to buy since it was cheap. It is from Tesco's middle range of shampoos, it comes in a transparent, thick plastic bottle and so the shampoo can be seen inside the bottle, the bottle has a flip lid and the bottle is quite a large one of 750ml and is priced at just 59p, a bargain price in my opinion. The shampoo has a hint of green colour, it has a really nice consistency and one that does not drip from the bottle while pouring it onto the hands. It is also nice and smooth and a very soft liquid. It has a really nice fragrance to it and one that has a Tea Tree smell and one that is very refreshing with a hint of perfume smell with this one. It is a nice pleasant smell and one that smells really nice while shampooing but I do find that this one does not have a lasting smell on my hair after around an hour after it has been dried, this is not such a problem because it does at least wash the hair really well and it does not leave my hair feeling lanky or too rough before using a conditioner. It lathers really well and creates lots of bubbles with just a small amount needed. A little does go a very long way with this cheap shampoo. I find that it cleans my hair really well and it is also very easy to rinse from my hair with no problems at all. I have short hair at the moment and just a 50p piece amount is adequate enough to wash my hair just perfectly. I like the feel of it on my hair and although I find it does not have that tingly effect while washing my hair as some other Tea Tree shampoos have, it does however have a nice feeling on the hair as far as it possible could for the price. I think Tesco have created a fine shampoo with this one and have done very well. I only used one application with this one, I more often than not wash my hair every day and sometimes I give it 2 washes before I use my conditioner. I wash it usually twice with a cheaper brand but I have tried this shampoo washing it once and twice and it has left my hair feeling the same using both methods, so I would say with this one only one application is necessary for my hair. I think this is ideal for a family shampoo because I think it is suitable for both men and women and also children. I have used it once for washing my little grandson's more finer hair and I found that I only needed a tiny amount for his hair because it is much thinner and finer than an adults hair and as we all know children's hair is more softer. It left his hair nice and soft and it did not take long to rinse it from his hair and so it helped him feel nice and comfortable having his hair washed with an adult shampoo. I much prefer to wash his hair as I normally do with a baby shampoo but this one worked well for the purpose of washing his hair. This one in my opinion is a good value shampoo, it is a good quality for the cheap price and is worth the money. I would certainly recommend this one for anyone looking to down grade to a cheaper shampoo because it cleans the hair very well. I think is so affordable for anyone on a lower budget at the moment and for anyone looking around for a cheaper one. I will buy it again in the future because it has a nice fragrance and I like the fact that I do not have to use too much to create a lather. It gives me all the results that I expect from a cheaper brand of shampoo. A basic shampoo with a nice price tag. The bottle can easily be recycled too after use. I give this one 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great, refreshing minty shampoo

            This shampoo currently costs only 99p for a 750ml bottle. You can also buy a matching 750ml conditioner , also for only 99p. I have to say I'm very impressed by this shampoo. In our household we all have our special favourite shampoos, except my husband due to a regrettable lack of hair these days.(I regret it anyway, he doesn't seem to mind). However the Tesco Tea Tea shampoo is a perfectly good standby, and will not harm any type of hair, and is perfectly suitable for children, as it is pleasant ,and mild.The label states that it is suitable for everyday use, indeed if you like to wash your hair everyday this may be a good choice, although I don't usually do this, recently due to a problem with hair dye, I decided to wash my hair daily, I found the Tea Tree shampoo lovely and refreshing without irritating or drying my scalp. Tea tree oil is well known as having antiseptic and head louse deterrent properties. However I can't totally recommend the shampoo for this purpose.My grandaughter's class has a bit of a problem with head lice, my daughters attempts to control these outbreaks with Tea Tree shampoo, a tooth comb and the conditioner have not worked, the products designed specifically for head louse removal will do the trick. Even so, the use of the shampoo, conditioner, and an occasional sweep through with a tooth comb may act as a deterrant, though Tesco themselves do not make this claim. The shampoo comes in a slightly opaque plastic bottle which can be recycled where facilities are available.It is a nice mint green colour, flowing easily, but not too runny.The smell is just right, in my opinion, minty enough to feel cool, clean and refreshing, but not harsh.It lathers readily, and rinses off without a problem.Healthy hair looks clean and shiny after use. The label tells us that the product has not been tested on animals. Once opened it should be used within 24 months .A Tesco helpline number Freephone 0800 50 55 55 is given. Refunds can be given if you are not satsfied with the product. Ingredients seem to be more or less the usual mix :Aqua,Sodium Laureth Sulphate,Sodium Chloride, Parfum,DisodiumEDTA,PEG/PPG-14/4 Dimethicone,Citric Acid,Melaleuca Alternifola,Sodium Hydroxide, Linalool,Limonene,Trithylene Glycol.Benzophenone 4 ,Benzyl Alcohol,PropyleneGlycol,Magnesium Chloride,Magnesium Nitrate,Methylchloroisothiazolinone,Methylsothiazolinone,BHT,Hexylene Glycol CL42051 CL 47005. wOW! The chemists must know what they are about. I have a friend who used to stack shelves in Tescos and she told me that this shelf always needed a lot of filling, so it must be a very popular product. I've decided on 5 stars because for the price I think its great, and I'd pay more, but shh, don't tell Tescos.

              If you aren't after anything specific from a shampoo then this is for you.

              My daughter has very tangly hair so a conditioner is a necessity in our house hold, and I will admit I will try and opt for value products where possibly especially with the credit crunch. What first attracted me to this shampoo when I saw it on the shelves in Tesco was undoubtedly the size of the bottle this 750ml bottle defiantly stands out when placed on shelves alongside your average leading bottle of shampoo, what also stood out was the price, just 99p. I selected the tea tree option as I had heard that tea tree is great for deterring head lice. So all this in a 750ml bottle for just 99p. The bottle itself is bog standard no frills, which is to be expected. Using this product by pouring a palmfull of the shampoo onto your head and massage well into the hair and scalp, rinse well. The smell is strong but not overpowering and it does leave you hair smelling fresh. The consistency of the shampoo isn't as thick as a lot of shampoo's given that it is runnier I find I need to use more of this shampoo at a time than I do with some other leading shampoo's. It lathers up quite nicely on your head and is easy to rinse out. If I am not using conditioner then I will shampoo my hair twice at one time with this product, but would do so with other products also. I would recommend this shampoo, I think it's great value basic shampoo. Yes you need to use more but there is plenty more to use.

              Shampoo

              Tesco tea tree shampoo With a busy household, we have a lot of hair washing to be done, and whilst Little Miss and I have our special shampoos, for the boys we tend to buy in bulk. This shampoo is suitable for everyday use and has apparently been specially formulated with natural extracts to leave hair soft and manageable. I also read somewhere that tea tree can keep head lice at bay so for anyone at risk this could be a winner! The shampoo comes in a big 750ml plastic bottle with a lid that flips up to open and then back down to close. The shampoo itself is dispensed from a small hole at the top and although it does look very green in the bottle, but when it's out of the bottle, it's not so much green as clear with a greenish tinge. It does have a strong tea tree smell whcih I like because I think it's a nice fresh smell, but when hair is rinsed, there seems to be no lingering smell. The shampoo should be used as a normal shampoo, and should be massaged into the hair and scalp, taking care not to get any into the eyes (it stings). When I have used it, it does work into a good lather which is then easy to rinse away, leaving hair feeling "squeaky" clean. Price and availability This costs 99p for a big 750ml bottle of the stuff and is available insore or online at www.tesco.co.uk Verdict... This is a great value everyday shampoo which really does clean hair. The only thing I would suggest is using a conditioner afterwards because the benefits of really cleaning your hair is that it seems to dry it out a bit. There is a Tesco tea tree conditioner which we have tried and this seems to effectively combat the possible dryness. For people with a dry or itchy scalp, I would also suggest that it may be a tad harsh because himself complained of it being too harsh for his delicate scalp. All that said, Myself and teenage sons have found this to be an effective shampoo, so I would recommend it for anyone with normal but not dry hair. Thanks for reading. Daniela xx
