With the launch of the new Smurfs movie Spud has gone Smurf crazy. He sees the advert on the TV and goes absolutely bananas at the little blue creatures. In conjunction with the launch Schwarzkopf Supersoft Kids have released a brand new 2 in 1 shampoo and detangling spray.
When we were offered the chance to review I jumped at the chance purely because of the word Smurf! When the products arrived Spud was ecstatic and immediately asked for a bath even though it was 10am. The packaging is brightly coloured with hair washing Smurfs decorating the label. They have released two ‘flavours’ – Strawberries and Milk and Tropical. We were sent the Strawberries and Milk variety and I had noticed the lovely smell as soon as I had opened the flap on the envelope. I managed to persuade Spud to wait until his actual bath time and when the time came he launched himself into the bath shouting about strawberry smurfs!
The 2 in 1 shampoo contains an intensive care vitamin complex that has a mild formulation to gently cleanse and strengthen children’s hair. It has the standard Supersoft kids double anti tear effect formula that is skin friendly and ends the hair washing dramas caused by product going into eyes. We opened the bottle and took a whiff. It smells so nice that Spud started licking his lips. He was a little bit concerned that it was red but let me put some onto his hair anyway. He had great fun rubbing it into his hair as it lathers up nicely. It took a fair bit of rinsing but I did use a bit too much for his tiny amount of hair. Once he was out of the bath and had dry hair he smelt so delectable that during our quiet time I spent most of Meercat Manor sniffing his hair!
We also received the Strawberry and Milk detangling spray for use after washing. It aids easy combing and creates super smooth hair without any tugging or pulling with the comb. It also contains the intensive care vitamin complex and mild formulas to strengthen and care for children’s hair. I realised with his short hair that perhaps detangling spray wasn’t the best idea for Spud to test so I drafted in my friend and her daughter (who has gorgeous long hair) to help us test it and gave them a go with the shampoo as well.
“When we told Gracie that we were using a new special shampoo, she was very excited. Imagine her face when she then saw the brightly packaged Smurf adorned bottle. We then had a sniff and can sum it up with one word – Gorgeous. After dinner we had some down time and then when I announced it was it was bath time she jumped for joy! Once in the bath she made me wash her straight away. This never happens. She was a bit confused when it came out red, but that soon passed when I told it had to be red because it was made with strawberries. As i was washing I could tell straight away that it was making her hair softer and she also joined in with the washing! It took a lot of rinsing but this was probably down to me using to much, you really do only need a little bit! Once rinsed it looked and smelled lovely!! When we got out of the bath it was time to use the detangling spray. Like the shampoo it smells lovely and easily spritzed onto her hair. Once it was blow dried the end result was amazing, beautiful soft and silky hair! We will definitely be using this product again. I had never thought to use a 2 in 1 shampoo on Gracie before, now i’m wondering why it took me so long!!”
