No matter what they might own up to in public, we women know that men secretly love to shower at their girlfriend’s houses, if only for one major reason: the chance to steal their toiletries. Men can pretend all they like, but woman are all too aware that they love the opportunity to try out our moisturising body washes, exfoliating scrubs, and perhaps most of all, our shampoos. And while theft is a crime, we do sympathise.
The fact is that the shampoos on offer for men in supermarket toiletries aisles usually don’t cut it. And while some men are fully sold on the benefits of premium male grooming, a lot of men are reluctant to take the plunge of their own accord out of the misplaced fear that taking care of their appearance somehow compromises their masculinity.
If you fall into the latter camp, we would like to encourage you to experiment with some of the haircare, skincare, and bodycare options on offer at Mankind. But first and foremost, we’re here to help, and if you want to keep stealing shampoo from your other half, then who are we to stop you? Check out these 4 Shampoos you might want to steal from your girlfriend.
The first shampoo you might want to steal is the Matrix Total Results Re-Bond Shampoo. A fantastic shampoo for those who suffer from dandruff, as well as those with fine or thinning hair. Its Salicylic Acid content gently cleanses dead skin cells away from the scalp, ensuring optimal scalp health, while nourishing and strengthening hair fibres.
The Pureology Strength Cure Colour Care Shampoo is great not only if you have dyed or heat treated hair, but if your hair is fine or thinning. The same nutritive benefits of the shampoo which protect chemical and heat damaged hair also restores moisture and strength to hair which is fine or thinning.
The Kersastase Densifique Bain Densite shampoo is a gentle hair and scalp cleanser which makes use of Stemoxydine and Hyaluronic acid to maximise the thickness, fullness, and texture of the hair. If you spot this in that bathroom, you should definitely take it for a spin.
The Cerafill Defy Shampoo from Redken makes use of Cerafill System technology to strengthen individual hair fibres, preventing breakages while boosting and re-densifying thinning hair.
