Not the apple one, but the coconut and lychee one because i love the smell! I use the matching conditioner. My hair is dryish and wavy, not in the best condition to be honest, but AB really doesn't do a bad job on it for a quid a bottle. I just make sure I do a good intensive conditioning treatment (tresemme or Aussie) every 3-4 washes.

Yes, I've used this. Alberto Basam shampoos are absolutely brilliant for the price, IMO.

Not sure what hair type it's for: I'd guess normal to greasy. Re: conditioner, I have paired it with the cheap £1 AB one. Seems to do the job pretty well and is so cheap you can slather on loads.

Hmm decisions lol

Normal hair and no conditioner.
DP has dry hair and DD has greasy hair, neither can use it.
I love the smell.

I use this, I have mid length slightly greasy fine hair. I use the Apple shampoo and conditioner.

I am all about the Alberto Balsam. My hairdresser asked me what I was using because my hair was so good when I started using it! I have v straight hair, fine strands but lots of it, and I use either the coconut one or something the pink one (raspberry? Not sure).

Sometimes, not something.

I use apple shampoo for my greasy hair and A.B raspberry conditioner

LazyCake Wed 15-Jun-16 15:01:32

Ooh, Hopefully, you are making me think I need to buy another bottle!

I heard that AB is the one that hairdressers use when they are too skint to afford the salon brands they sell. Sounds plausible - it really is very good.

Think I might have to go sainsburys now lol

I love apple shampoo! We have the raspberry one on the go at the moment. I like the new shape bottle and for a pound you can't go wrong, definitely worth a try!
I've used the yellow original Herbal Essences conditioner with the apple shampoo.

Love AB shampoos although we use the tea tree one. I read somewhere nits don't like it & touch wood so far DCs and me have remained nit free.

My hairdresser also commented how lovely my hair was and that it was in brilliant condition. So 99p from Home Bargains and I can swish away wink

Indecisivejo Wed 15-Jun-16 18:50:15

Bought some grin
It's your fault coconuts ha ha.

Thanks everyone

Yes I use the apple and it's brilliant. I have really fine hair and I find that all the expensive naice shampoos make it greasy. This doesn't make it so nor does it strip it dry.

winterinmadeira Wed 15-Jun-16 18:52:13

Sorry xpost! Glad you bought some.

SendARavenToRiverrun Wed 15-Jun-16 18:54:12

Ive got long thick wavy hair. It's in lovely condition if I do say so myself smile
I've used AB for years. The blueberry antioxidants one is lovely. The kids use the tea tree one to prevent nit.

PeterandJudithSurname Wed 15-Jun-16 18:55:50

I like the conditioners, especially the raspberry, but i find my hair gets greasy quicker than normal if i use the shampoos.

Having looked at the fab reviews online for this shampoo, (and having run out of shampoo altogether) I think I'm going to buy a bottle of the colour blends one as I colour my hair a lot!

Indecisivejo Thu 16-Jun-16 11:16:43

Colour blends?

Youvegottobekidding Thu 16-Jun-16 16:23:17

Colour Bright! This one

groceries.asda.com/product/shampoo/alberto-balsam-blends-colour-bright-shampoo/910002020071

I tried Asda, they had none left, tried Morrisons, they didn't have it. If I can't get this one, anyone tried the Blueberry one for coloured hair?
