Tommyguns Pomegranate & Orange Flower Shampoo

Sometimes you’ve got to give your hair a well earned rest from ‘specialised’ shampoos and conditioning treatments, even my beloved hair oils used sparingly, can cause a build up.

Enter then, this gentle, gorgeously fragranced (and reasonably priced) shampoo by Tommyguns. A light, gentle shampoo you can use every day.

Sure, the shampoo delivers, foams nicely and leaves hair squeaky clean, but it’s the smell that makes it a bit special.  I first realised how much the fragrance lingered when my hair whipped around my face (I’m one of those suckers who buys hair perfume – madness), and I caught a lovely whiff of…well, definitely, not oranges, which I’m not keen on, but orange flowers which have a very different scent to the fruit, much more delicate, but somehow fresh and summery without being sickly.

There are various studies detailing how fragrance and memory are linked. I always take this shampoo on holiday and even the kids don’t seem to mind using it (probably because they can’t smell it on their hair). It means that when I use it back at home, I’m reminded of holidays and sunshine. If I buy a perfume or body lotion for the first time at the airport pre flight, I open them on holiday and use them everyday I’m away.

You’d be surprised how fragrance memory works, it’s called association, pair a specific scent to a happy memory and call up that memory again with the scent, easy!
