Shampoo - the one that appears time and time again

As with most products we have a level of patience, we adore them, like them, use them, get bored and move on to another offering. 
Shampoo at one time had loyalty, people used the same brand, of course the choice was far more limited compared to today. We looked only for it to clean our hair and not perform follicle miracles. 
Now we have promises of thickness, weightlessness, no frizz, no dryness, no oiliness, no product build up, colour preserving, colour enhancing, the list goes on and then there are conditioners, masques, hair oils, hair sprays. So when I found I was heading back to a particular brand and shampoo, I realised it deserved a mention on my blog. 

300ml & 500ml

For a girl who home dyes her hair, anything that preserves it's colour even when the grey sneaks through is a bonus. Make the product easy to get hold of and reasonably priced, well it's a bonus. 

I've never felt obliged to buy a matching conditioner, and often go off piste just grabbing whatever is on offer or a large tub of hair mask to do the job. 
But shampoo, I do give it more thought and the Aussie Colour Mate has always given me clean hair, no irritation and also very shiny and cared for coloured hair. 
Many a colour shampoo has preserved my colour but left my hair dull in doing so, this keeps the shine and vibrancy of my colour. 
I do swap and change with hair products but this gets used at least once a week. It is a reliable product, which offers me results that I can see time and time again. 
For anyone ingredient hungry the list is below and this product does contain sulphates.

This has worked for me with any hair dye I have used and the results never differ, I always have one in my shower and even when using other products this features in my hair routine at some point over a week, it works and that is why I buy it. 

Product description (taken from brand details on

Stay colourful

The indigenous Australian's use to grind 'Wild Peach' kernels up to use as a form of hair conditioning oil. They were obviously way ahead of their time, as we're still using it hundreds of years later.
