It seems that we are starting this new month just like we ended the last and that is by focusing on hair. I guess it was a long time coming as I never really spoke about hair on this blog. There might have been a few posts here and there, but they do not even come close in numbers to the actual products I used over the past few years, particularly since starting beauty blogging. Then again, there are many things I have yet to speak about. Trying my best to do better!
Soap and Glory Junk the Gunk™ Charcoal Shampoo Review
I love Charcoal shampoos. Charcoal is a great ingredient as far as I found so far. If things change, I will let you know. It seems to work quite well for me so far and it does a great job at removing dirt. However that is not why this Soap and Glory shampoo deserves to be featured. You already guessed the conclusion of this post, but do stick till the end :).
Not only does this Junk the Gunk Shampoo from Soap and Glory is a charcoal based one which I do love as I stated above, but it is a shampoo with scrub particles. Why is that so special?
Well, for one there is the fact that there are not a whole lot of actual scrubbing shampoos. There are scalp scrubs, but even those are somehow limited. The reason why this product caught my attention and I managed to stick to this one for quite some time, since it first came out in fact is due to the fact that this scrubbing shampoo works. It works people! It really works.
I am not sure about you, but scalp scrubs do not work for me. They do not work. Scrubbing particles always get stuck in my hair and they never really make it to where they are supposed to get to – the skin. Even if I apply scrubs to the skin directly, I cannot rub the particles around all over, so in order to achieve some okay-ish results, I end up using quite a bit of product. That just doesn’t work for me. It is too much hassle.
That is not the case where the Junk the Gunk™ Shampoo from Soap and Glory is concerned. Since this is a shampoo and one that is not that thick in texture, it is perfect for its purpose. The foam gets the scrubbing particles where they need to go and it leaves the scalp feeling revitalised.
For a while I thought that maybe I was using the wrong scrubs or that I was not applying them right or maybe I was not tying hard enough, but at the end of the day, a product that is worth my time is one that helps make my life better and easier and not more difficult. What is the point, am I wrong? I have tried again and again and with different brands and other products that worked were also shampoos more often than scrubs. I will share those reviews as well, but I still want to focus on this product from Soap and Glory for the remainder of this post.
I am not here to promote the Soap and Glory Charcoal Shampoo as it being the best one on the market. It is not. There are other products that ended up working and some felt even better than this one. However, the idea is that this shampoo works. Even better, the shampoo is super affordable compared to other efficient ones.
Yes, washing out the Junk the Gunk™ shampoo is not the easiest and it takes a while to get all the particles out of my hair, but it is probably the fastest one to rinse out.
Something that I forgot to mention is that this shampoo does not leave my flat hair even more boring looking. It actually makes my hair more puffy and gives it a bit of volume. It also does not leave my hair super soft, too soft to style. After use, my hair is just right especially given the extra benefits which is why I chose to use this shamooo for.
Overall, as heavily hinted above, I love the Soap and Glory Shampoo and I am grateful to have found it which is why I wanted to share this with you. It took me a long while to get around to doing this, but I hope it was worth the wait. I whole heartedly recommend giving this shampoo a try.
You can purchase this shampoo from Soap and Glory websites, Walgreens and Boots UK.
