Review – YUKO Shampoo & Conditioner for Dry, Sensitized and Chemically Treated Hair!


(I did accidentally knock them both into the fish pond so i ended up with slightly wet bottles OPS!
but both bottles are now fully recovered from their ordeal)
YUKO was a brand founded in 1996 by salon owner and stylist Yuko Yamashita, it is a Japanese hair straightening brand where their permanent salon hair straightening can be found in over 70,000 salons worldwide! YUKO also has a home care range consisting of products which targets: Frizz, Colour Treated hair, Dry/Damaged hair, Dry/Chemically treated hair as well as products like Shine Spray, Repair Spray, Serums and Leave in Treatments!
The products which i tried was the *Bella shampoo & conditioner set for Dry, sensitized and chemically treated hair I’ve been using them for a little over 2 week now so here’s my thoughts :)
*The Shampoo, is quite watery in consistency when I first put some in my hands I was very sceptical of whether it would lather up as I would hope a shampoo would but it did! Despite its watery consistency the shampoo worked its magic and gave a rich lather and left my hair feeling very clean! I was very impressed, although i did find it hard to get from my hands to my hair without some running off my hands so i did some kind of quick hand to head movement! But that didn’t bother me.. it doesn’t quite have much of a smell which I like sometimes it’s nice to have a shampoo without a big fragrance. I just applied the shampoo gave it a good scrub making sure to scrub my scalp and then i rinsed off and it didn’t leave my hair feeling tangled like other shampoos have!
*The Conditioner, I found this has a slightly stronger smell than the shampoo, It smells quite florally (if that makes sense) which I love because after all this is the last thing you apply to your hair before getting out of the shower/bath so your hair then takes on that scent! It isn’t a very strong smell but it is strong enough to be noticed! I got lots of compliments saying ‘your hair smells nice’ after I used this shampoo & conditioner combo! That’s always a nice compliment to receive isn’t it? :) This conditioner is a much thicker consistency than the shampoo! After seeing the consistency of the shampoo I opened the conditioner with my eyes closed! But it was just perfect for a conditioner! I applied a small amount on to my hair and left for about 5-10 minutes (you don’t have to leave yours on this long, this is just what I do with all my conditioners/hair treatments) and after I rinsed it off I could already feel the difference my hair was noticeably softer, silkier & smoother!
Overall Thoughts, I really did love this shampoo & conditioner combo! It worked wonders for my hair! it left it feeling nourished, hydrated and super soft, and i really enjoyed using it.
I love not having tangled hair after shampooing and then the smell of the conditioner is just a gorgeous subtle smell which leaves me looking a little strange smelling my own hair but its all good we all secretly do it! I cant wait for pay day to get my hands on the Anti Frizz range i love those types of shampoos and the Bella set has given me such high hopes!

    I laughed about the fishpond but I think the water droplets add to the effect :) these sound great, I've never heard of the brand before but I think I should give them a go :) xx

    Haha, I definitely thought you'd put water on the bottles to add to the effect, so funny that you'd dropped them in a pond that's something I'd 100% do! The products sound amazing, I'm in dyer need of something like this my hairs in shreds! Love your blog too :)

    I've had the Yuko straightening treatment on my hair and so was recommended to use these to put protein back in my hair and keep it shiny. I found that after every wash my hair was getting greasier and goopier, not just at the roots, but throughout. I'm not sure if I wasn't getting the shampoo ( and conditioner ) out fully, or if it just wasn't washing my hair properly in the first place. I've never considered myself as having greasy hair. Every three days is my usual routine. Am I not using enough shampoo? I just can't get it to lather at all. Did you have to use quite a lot of the shampoo to get it to wash your hair? In desperation I used my tresemme shampoo and my hair is light and clean for the first time in a month! (although a little frizzy)
