The 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray come packaged in a bright green, fun for kids colour. I think this is important, as you want to make the product something that children will want to use rather than be embarrassed about. My son certainly thought it was a “cool” colour. The lid on the 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo is an easy to use release clip and the overall bottle size was perfect for my son to handle and hold confidently. The Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray is a spray bottle, which again is a good size for children to hold. However, my son struggled slightly with spraying and holding the bottle at the same time whilst trying to point it towards his hair, so the spraying is something I tend to do for him. A good amount of spray comes out and you only need a few bursts to cover the head.
The 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo can be used daily as a shampoo and conditioner which is definitely a box ticked in our house – it is hard enough to get my son to wash his hair on some days, and if he had to use two products, then we would have no hope! The Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray can be used after washing or in between washes. We use ours every evening, after washing with the 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo. The use of these two together is supposed to help defend your child from head lice, and so far, we have had no incidents of head lice so this does seem to be doing the trick.
My son found the smell of the 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray fine – I wouldn’t go so far to say as he loved it but it certainly didn’t fall into the “I hate it” category. I, on the other hand, loved the smell. Tea tree is such a clean, sanitised smell and it is reassuring to know your child’s hair is clean when you smell the tea tree and eucalyptus. Also, this means my son can’t get away with telling me he has washed his hair when he hasn’t – one sniff and I know if he is fibbing!
The 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray have left my son’s hair looking healthy, clean and soft. My son has not complained of any uncomfortableness when using it nor of itchy scalp after using it. I like the fact that you can use this daily to keep protection against head lice constant.
I would highly recommend these two products as they are very child friendly, both visually and in use. At £2.49 for the 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and £3.29 for the Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray, it is definitely good value for money considering they will last at least a month. We will definitely be making this our day to day hair washing routine. I have experienced head lice once before and now with Vosene’s 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray in our lives, hopefully that will be the one and only time!
