If you’ve ever been to the hairdresser and been recommended a bazillion different shampoos, conditioners and styling products because your hair requires so much care and attention, then you may be interested to know of a fantastic new launch that’s set to revolutionise the hair industry. If, like me, you need straightening protection, extra moisture and a hit of shine to bring your brunette locks back to life, then you can have all of that and more in one shampoo. Concoction is the brain child of Alex Epstein, a previous contestant on The Apprentice and an all-round great guy who really believes in this brilliant new brand. Concoction literally allows you to call the shots, providing you with your very own bespoke shampoo that’s created in front of your very eyes.
With four base fragrances to choose from (including Black Pepper and
Citrus, Lemon and Verbena, Rosemary and Mint, as well as Bakhour,) you simply add two intensive treatment shots of your choice.
There’s everything from brunette, blonde and red colour intense shots to
help your hair sparkle, as well as smoothing treatments, added volume
and even extra moisture if your hair is super thirsty. I’ve known about
this brand for over a year, having met Alex and being able to try the
products when Concoction was still in its infancy, and I have to admit
that this is such a simple idea that I’m amazed hasn’t been thought of
until now. With our hair never being simply one ‘type’ or needing one
solution alone, Concoction allows you to target two concerns that are
unique to you at any one time. With millions of combinations to choose
from, this shampoo is £14.00 well spent. For added treatment you can
also pick up their ‘one size fits all’ conditioner, which can be used to
target differnet concerns by the length of time it’s left on hair – for
a lighter result simply leave on for two minutes; for a more intense,
smoothing finish leave on for up to ten.
The shampoos lather extremely well and leave hair looking and feeling great, really helping to target your concerns and provide the perfect product for your needs; the focus is so often on the conditioner, so it’s great to see shampoo getting its moment in the spotlight once more. Concoction is currently exclusively available in London’s Selfridges store, where for the next two weeks you can pop down and meet their (rather hot) Mixologists; they’ll create you a bespoke shampoo which you can take away to try at home. If you can’t get down to Selfridges though, don’t worry – you can buy the brand online! This is definitely a brand to watch, not only because of its uniqueness and value within a saturated marketplace, but because its fun products really do the job you need them to.
