TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Re-Energize Shampoo Review
This is a great shampoo for those who have normal style hair, which is not damaged or broken. It is primarily meant for people who would like to revitalize their head, and get back to looking – for lack of a better word -- fabulous. For those who are unfamiliar, this is an intro to this great company, and a short TIGI Bed Head Re-energize Shampoo review.
The Origins Of TIGI Explained
TIGI is a world famous hair care company, which was originally founded by four Italian brothers: Anthony, Toni, Guy, and Bruno of the family Mascolo. Before the company was established in the 80s, these four siblings already had a long and proud tradition of hair styling. Their grandfather had a hair care salon, and their father was also a professional hair trimmer. With such history, it was pretty obvious that these Italian apples won’t fall too far from the tree.
Toni and Guy opened their first salon (in London) in 1963. The company has gone through several changes, but their products have always been top of the line. The Bed Head brand was created in the middle of the 90s, and it has been going strong ever since, gaining a following of devoted and satisfied customers.
Finding The Right Shampoo
This shampoo (and its matching “level 1” conditioner) are for those who want to get their hair back to normal. When I say “normal”, I mean back to a state in which they are happy with it. Happiness can be contagious. When people look good, they also feel good, ergo -- happy hair begets happy people. True, the two don’t have to be so closely connected, but sometimes they are. Looks matter. And the way your hair looks also matters. This applies to kids and adults, men and women. Everyone, everywhere, loves a healthy head of hair.
This product is called “re-energize”. It doesn’t aim to provide the scalp and hair with something which had never existed in it to begin with, but rather to remind the hair of that which has been lost – shine, body, strength. It certainly does provide all three of these.
Bear in mind that not all shampoos are created equal. Not all shampoos are meant for all types of individuals. It is precisely for that reason that there are so many different kinds of hair care products out there. What works wonders for you and your locks, may not work at all for your friend. Finding the right hair care product can be an experience filled with trial and error. Some get frustrated with the process, but to them I say: bah. Just do the word, find what is best for you, and then you will be happy you did it. Too many people simply use the wrong products, for years and years, and they can’t figure out why their hair is so dull.
Bed Head Re-energize shampoo is said to be “perfect for normal hair.” I am not one to believe in absolutes. There is no such thing as perfect, not even with hair. Maybe especially not with hair! But hey, this shampoo comes pretty close to perfect. For real. And I am not the only one who thinks that way.
When you are seeking a shampoo for normal hair, what you want – ideally -- is a product that manages to clean, hydrate, and nourish, without causing any kind of side effects, nor over-saturating the scalp with oils. Using the essential oils for your hair is a must. The scalp makes enough oils of its own, after all. Too much of a good thing can also cause problems. The scalp and hair can be very sensitive, and you want to tread lightly and not overuse hair cosmetics.
This shampoo is meant to be used daily, and together with the conditioner (which I found to be better when not used daily) it forms a powerhouse of health and vitality. It is called an “Urban Antidote”, because it is meant to combat the environmental conditions which exist all around us, and which are a part of our daily lives.
TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Shampoo Ingredients And Benefits
Some of the ingredients in this shampoo are not as welcomed as others. I can’t say that I am a fan of sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) or fragrances, and they do exist in this shampoo. That being said, this Antidote does manage to deliver just that – an antidote. It is a tool to battle those potentially harmful ingredients which are all around us, and it provides a wonderful shine. Its strengthening formula can definitely be felt, especially with regular (daily or semi-daily) use.
Depending on your style of hair, you may have to supplement this product with a mask or other silky agent. It also depends on whether or not you are using the Urban Antidote conditioner in conjunction with the shampoo. Whatever your hair care routine is, the most important thing is that you feel that you are getting your money’s worth, and that your head and hair are feeling great. The Urban Antidote shampoo and conditioner even come in a combo pack, and that makes it that much easier to obtain and use.
TIGI’s products (they have several brands) are awesome, and they are also used by professional hairdressers, all around the world. Over the last 20 years, it has made a real difference in the world of hair, beauty, and fashion. This is part of its great advantage over other kinds of hair care products. The Bed Head line was developed by hairdressers, for hairdressers. These guys are professionals, and they know what works best.
TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Re-Energize Shampoo: Our Verdict
Will this shampoo (and its accompanying conditioner) be the answer to all of your hair prayers? Maybe, and maybe not. It is up to you to find out the answer to that question. It could be that you will use it for a couple of weeks, but find that you are not getting the results you are looking for. As I mentioned earlier – trial and error. If you have normal style hair, and are going through the process of finding the best shampoo for you, order the combo and give it a shot. Who knows? There is a good chance you have just discovered your new favorite hair care product.
