Tried & Tested: The £3 Salon-worthy Shampoo And Conditioner

You've heard it all before. The secret to strong, healthy hair is to avoid straighteners, bleach and always air-dry your hair. Great. That leaves us with the mousy brown, unruly but very much split end-free hair we used to rock when we were 12. Thankfully, if you can't quite abide by the rules, professional haircare brand Syoss has launched their Hair Renaissance range containing SalonPlex technology to give you stress-free, salon-worthy hair for just £3 per product. We put it on trial.

I am the ultimate lazy girl when it comes to my hair and I should have more shame admitting that to you, but somehow it's been going on so long now, it's just a fact of (my) life. Hair washes are a weekly indulgence, so I guess that kind of answers how often I used a hair mask! You got it. Never. But with hair as long as mine, I've come to the conclusion that it really does deserve better. It's time...I need to be a better hair parent.

The Syoss Renaissance Shampoo and Conditioner duo is the perfect excuse for this lazy girl to grow up and take some responsibility. The professional Salonplex technology is specifically designed to restore broken hair from within, sealing and protecting your locks for the long haul. After testing it out for a few weeks, my hair felt softer and more manageable between washes. It's the high-performance rescue remedy your damaged hair is crying out for - and for £3 a pop? You don't get more affordable than that.

I'll be the first to admit I don't take enough care when looking after my hair. It's been bleached to death since I was 14, I never air-dry it because it takes too long to dry by itself and if I don't use either my straighteners or beloved wand then it flicks in ways I didn't even know were possible. Basically, I need professional help but the haircare they try and sell to you at the hairdressers is just way out of my budget to buy every six week. I've tried hair masks and oils and while they make my hair smooth for a day or so, they don't provide a long-term solution.

Syoss' Hair Renaissance Shampoo and Conditioner is specifically formulated with mechanically-stressed hair in mind and contains SalonPlex which restores broken hair bonds. After using the shampoo and conditioner, I found that my hair felt much stronger and less prone to breakage when going about my usual drying and curling routine. I like that I can tackle my damaged hair as I shampoo and condition it, rather than having to do a mask afterwards, which saves a lot of time - though there is also a serum available if you want to go the extra mile. The best thing about the Syoss range? Each product is only £3 each - bargain, right? And you can get them as Tesco so you can pop them in the trolley along with your weekly shop and switch from Tesco Value ready meals to Finest thanks to all that spare change.

When it comes to crimes against hair, cuff me because I'm guilty of committing them all. Bleaching, straightening, not masking or getting it cut enough - just generally scrimping on all the TLC my long, blonde hair needs. One way I'm sure to look after my hair though is by washing it with a good, quality shampoo and conditioner set that lives up to the wild promises on the back of the bottle, of which I spend a long time studying before making my choice. The number one thing I look for in a such a product is strengthening - I need it to leave my split ends soft and conditioned without the need to apply an extra mask every wash because time is precious.

I was excited to try out Syoss' Hair Renaissance Shampoo and Conditioner mainly because of its covetable salonplex technology which is also found in the (expensive) salon service Olaplex - and for £3 too which is less than my daily Pret habit. It definitely delivered what it said on the bottle; even after just one wash my hair looked noticeably stronger and softer, and even my scraggly ends looked healthier. If you're guilty of hitting the (bleach) bottle too then give this shampoo and conditioner a go - your hair sins will thank you for it.

As someone who is always under the impression that having short hair is easier than having long hair, I sport a bob for most of the year, or at least when I can afford a haircut. But I can confirm that short hair is no easy feat, and so having a shampoo and conditioner combo that works with your hair is essential. That's exactly what the Syoss range does. We're a team with a range of different hair: long, short, blonde brown, not washed enough, washed too much - and it worked a treat on the whole team. And damn, we were the best smelling team in Central London, yo! Those follicles just send a fresh as hell fragrance to permeate throughout the office. And no one can be mad at that.

We will be giving 50 sets of Syoss Hair Renaissaince Shampoo and Conditioner away this week on Experts Club
