I noticed Concoctions on Twitter a few weeks ago. Their concept of mixing a shampoo tailored to your own 'liveblend prescription' was a pretty unique idea which I'd never actually heard of a haircare company doing before. I also loved their brand and logo design and I think I described it as a 'rave for the eyes' (or something like that). I quickly developed a dialogue with them via Twitter (see, blogging etiquette in action) and they offered to let me try some of their shampoo to review on my blog.
Sorry these images aren't as crisp as they've been lately, they were taken on my old camera. Anyway, I've given the shampoo around 3 weeks to work it's magic, I thought with a concept like this and with haircare in general it's always better to give it time to work before coming to a conclusion. A bottle of Concoctions Shampoo retails for around £12.50, which is a fair price to pay for something that is quite unique in concept and tailored to your own needs.
You choose your own scent for your personalised blend with a choice of Black Pepper and Citrus, Rosemary and Mint, Lemon and Verbena or Bakhour. I chose Black Pepper and Citrus as the sound of it reminded me of the amazing scent of Molton Browns Black Pepper shower gel, alas though I felt that my blend wasn't quite as fragrant as I expect it to be and although a hint of the scent was there I was really expecting a POW black pepper kick! I understand this though as a lot of people don't like over powering scents. I do though, haha. You then choose 2 shots of super serum to be blended in by the 'mixologists'. You can see for yourself the list of those by clicking here. I chose Ravishing Red and Gimme More Moisture. I thought it was brilliant that you could choose two.
*word just in: concoctions have developed their conditioning creme and it will be released very soon, wooo! Keep a watch out on their Twitter for more news.
