Concoction Shampoo - The one you mix yourself!

Shampoo can be a little boring can't it? It can also be a little difficult to find one that suits all of your needs, fine, dry, or colour treated -what if I'm all three? 

Concoction  is a shampoo where  'You Call The Shots' -literally.


You can play scientist for the day and create a shampoo that's unique to your hair type. You simply chose a base Nourish and Protect ShampYou, there are  4 scents to choose from-
  • Bakhour -a woody blend of Arabian spices
  • Black Pepper and Citrus -an energising and indulgent mix of Black Pepper with a hint of Citrus
  • Lemon and Verbena - a refreshingly light blend of Citrus and Verbena
  • Rosmary and Mint - a vitalising mix of Rosemary, Peppermint and Tea Tree. 

Then you add 2 shots of serum depending on your hair type. It's completely tailored to you.

I received my own Concoction to play with in my goodie bag from the Hot Hair event and I've really enjoyed trying it out.

The scent I tried is Rosemary and Mint which is lovely and refreshing. It is also free from parabens and silicones.

The fun bit is adding the shots of serum. There's 8 shots to chose from which can treat red, blonde or brunette hair, create volume, smooth frizz, protect and add moisture. You pick two to add to the bottle by simply snapping off the top, pouring it inside and giving it a good shake.

The two I was given to try are great for me. I have the Thermo Straight Super Serum which gives extreme protection from heated appliances while it also repairs and soothes the hair making it strong and glossy. There's also added Aloe and Cucumber to hydrate. I use my straighteners a lot less than I used to but I still like to make sure I use heat protector when I do.


My second shot was Gimme More Moisture Super Serum. My hair is really dry at the ends so this is just what I needed. Filled with Aloe, Cucumber and Panthenol it nourishes and quenches damaged hair. It helps to eliminate frizz and leaves the hair soft and shiny.

You can mix and match no more than 2 of the shots, you can even add two of the same for a double shot.


It's a lot of fun mixing up the bottle, it really makes it feel like it's personal to you and I love that I can completely tailor it to my hair type. I found it really smoothed my hair and it felt clean and fresh too.

You can buy the shampoo in Boots for £11 and it's £1.50 for each shot. £13 for the lot is pretty reasonable I think. 

How do you feel about mixing up your own shampoo?
