Review: Creightons – Clay Balancing Shampoo & Hydrating Conditioner For Oily Roots & Dry Ends


I picked up CreightonsClay Balancing Shampoo & Clay Hydrating Conditioner from Home Bargains last week for 99p a bottle and I was instantly drawn to them because it said ‘clay’ on the bottle. I am a clay-a-holic and swear by the stuff so I couldn’t resist. I love using clay on my skin but I have never tried it on my hair before so I was interested to see what these would do.

It also says on the bottles that they are made for those who have oily roots & dry ends and I do get oily roots where my healthy hair is growing through and the ends are very dry because of over-bleaching in the past. I don’t think I have seen a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner that claims to combat both oily roots and dry ends so I couldn’t wait to give them a try. I’ve had a few other shampoos & conditoners from Creightons in the past and I have always liked them so was expecting good things.

For those of you who don’t know – Creightons are a UK-based beauty brand who sell a wide range of skincare and hair products. Take a look at their website HERE.

First Impressions

The Clay Shampoo /& Conditioner come is tall, 250 ml, metallic silver-green bottles with black, purple and white writing and they also have green lockable flip lids. They have a gorgeous little mermaid theme to them with the green, silver ad purple colours on the bottle. If mermaids used shampoo & conditioner, these are what they would use!

I think the bottles look quite expensive and you would never guess they were just under £1 each. The shampoo has a runny consistency and also has an off white colour whilst the conditioner has a thick, non-drop consistency and is white with a pearlescent shimmer. They both have a pleasant scent too which is mild and plant-like.

Thoughts:

When I first used the shampoo I was thinking to myself ‘I won’t be buying this again’ as it really didn’t lather well at all. I used more shampoo than was probably needed to get a small amount of lather and even then it didn’t lather up much. After washing it off I applied the conditioner all over my hair and it instantly felt soft and moisturised. After rinsing I towel dried my hair and combed through and my hair was easy to comb and didn’t have any tatts or knots. I left my hair to dry naturally and I never expected that I would be impressed with the results. My hair felt so soft and smooth when it had dried completely and it has a gorgeous little shine on it.

Two days later my roots were not oily like they usually are and my ends still felt soft and moisturised. I’ve used the shampoo & conditioner about 3 times since I purchased them and I do really like them both – my hair feels great and it looks so much better too. I have used more expensive shampoos & conditioners in the past that haven’t made my hair look or feel as it does now.

So, at first I didn’t like the shampoo and conditioner and I did think they were both rubbish and wouldn’t do anything good for my hair at all – main reason being that the shampoo doesn’t lather up and the scent, although it’s pleasant and not bad at all, it isn’t a fave of mine –  I wouldn’t say ‘woahhh this shampoo & conditioner smells absolutely amazing‘ – because it doesn’t, it just smells okay.

After using the shampoo & conditioner a couple of times already I really love what they have done to my hair and I’m amazed at how healthier it feels and looks. At 99p a bottle, they are great value for money and I will 100% be buying them again. I definitely recommend the shampoo & conditioner to anyone who has oily roots or dry, brittle ends. If you have both oily roots and dry ends like I do, then these are perfect for you and they will help with both problems.

Disclosure: I bought these products.

Where To Buy?

I got mine from Home Bargains for 99p each – so pop down to your local HB – they also have lots of other Creightons Shampoo & Conditioners for sale so you can take your pick.

I think Asda sell them as well and probably most chemists, supermarkets and beauty shops like Superdrug will probably stock them too.
