Asa cum deja v-am spus eu atunci cand imi spal parul imi place sa simt la final parul curat, sa “scartaie” de curat ce e ca si un pahar de cristal bine curatat, sa nu simt ca au ramas urme de sampon pe el. Ritualul meu este:  imi samponez parul de maxim 2 ori, ma asigur ca e clatit bine-bine si abia apoi aplic balsamul sau masca de par. Acum recent 3-a oara imi aplic pe varfurile parului un pic de sampon Briliant Brunette, care e ca si un balsam foarte bun pentru par si ii evidentiaza frumos culoarea naturala de saten, despre el am scris aici.  Sa revenim, din pacate la multe sampoane pe care le-am incercat am simtit ca nu imi spalau parul bine, simteam ca dupa a doua samponare nu e destul de curat si ca ar mai fi necesara cel putin inca o samponare, sau simt ca parul nu se clateste bine si oricata apa pui pe el nu se limpezeste… dar ce urasc cel mai mult este atunci cand imi aplic prima samponare si in loc sa simt ca parul incepe sa se curete parca as avea ceva clei in par, groaznic…

Unul dintre sampoanele pe care imi place sa il folosesc este de la Define si se numeste Radiant Shine. Produsele Define au fost lansate in 2005, iar la patru luni de la lansare au devenit cea mai mare linie de ingrijire a parului din Norvegia, pozitie pe care si-au pastrat-o pana in ziua de azi. Scopul celor de la Define este de a scoate pe piata produse de calitatea cea mai buna, la un pret rezonabil si pe care sa le poti cumpara din supermarketurile obisnuite. Astfel Define au colaborat cu Elida Hair Innovation Centre din Paris (cei care stau in spatele produselor Sunsilk, Dove si Tigi) si impreuna au folosit cele mai noi tendinte si tehnologii din domeniul produselor de ingrijire a parului. Toate produsele, lor inainte de a fi scoase la vanzare, sunt testate si imbunatatite constant si corespunzator atat in laboratoarele din Norvegia de la Lilleborg cat si de diferiti stilisti norvegieni.

Lista cu toate sampoanele si balsamurile pentru ingrijirea parului aflate pe piata o gasiti aici, iar lista cu produsele destinate aranjarii parului aici (din pacate numai in norvegiana). Cei de la Define, fiind intr-un proces de imbunatatire constant al produselor lor, au schimbat flaconul samponului, astfel in poza mea apare flaconul vechi (samponul l-am terminat recent) fata de ce este la ei pe site. Acum samponul pe care il folosesc se gaseste sub numele Define Pure Shine si pe care abia astept sa il incerc cat de curand, sper sa fie exact la fel. Lista ingredientelor samponului o gasiti aici.

Ce spun ei:

– samponul confera stralucire parului fara a-l incarca, il face sa para stralucitor si sanatos;

– samponul curata parul de substantele care ii reduc stralucire cum ar fi praful si grasimea;

– samponul contine ingrediente care repara si netezesc suprafata parului;

– samponul contine un filtru UV care asigura protectie impotriva razelor UV daunatoare ale soarelui;

– samponul protejeaza parul de caldura generata de uscatoare sau de placa de intins parul;

Ce spun eu:

– samponul miroase foarte bine, fin, elegan si proaspat exact cum ar trebui sa miroase un sampon, parfumul nu este prea puternic, este exact cat trebuie;

– samponul spala extraordinar de bine parul, il simti foarte curat dupa a doua samponare;

– parul se clateste foarte usor si samponul este indepartat cu usurinta de pe par, nu lasa deloc parul incarcat la final;

– samponul este fluid asa ca poti sa il scoti foarte usor din flacon;

– flaconul pe care l-am folosit eu avea un sistem foarte bun de inchidere si deschidere a lui, nu am incercat flaconul cel nou;

– mi-ar place sa vad cumva prin flacon nivelul samponului;

– ar fi foarte bine daca site-ul lor ar fi disponibil si in limba engelza sau daca ar fi detalii despre preturile lor si livrarea produselor pe plan international. Astfel daca cititi paginile lor de net va recomand sa folositi Google translate :), iar pentru informatii despre pret si livrarea internatioanala complectati formularul de aici.

– samponul prezinta toate caracteristicile unui sampon profesionist, la un pret mult mai mic decat al altor produse similare, astfel ca poate fi folosit usor de orice salon de frumusete;

Concluzie: Avand in vedere ca samponul Radiant Shine de la Define este unul dintre cele mai bune sampoane pe care le-am incercat la viata mea si mai ales ca raportul pret/calitate este foarte bun primeste din partea mea 5 flori de crin.

P.S. Sunt foarte curioasa sa testez pudra pentru volum instant Define Instant Volume Power. Voi reveni cu review-ul cat de curand.

English Version

Like I already told you before, I prefer, when I wash my hair, to feel my hair clean, “squeak” clean like a well cleaned crystal glass, not to feel any shampoo rests. My ritual is like this: I shampoo my hair max 2 times, to be sure that it is very well rinsed and only then I apply the conditioner or hair mask. Now recently, I use a third shampoo step but only on my hair tips with a little Brilliant Brunette shampoo, which is like good conditioner for the hair and brings out nicely the natural brown colour of the hair, as I wrote about it here.  Getting back to the subject, unfortunately many shampoos that I have tried left the feeling that they did not do a good enough job on cleaning my hair, I felt that after the second shampooing it was not entirely clean and it needed another round, or I got the feeling that it does not rinse very well no matter how much water I use… but what I hate most is when I apply the first shampoo and instead of getting clean hair I get an awful glue-ish stuff, terrible…

One of the shampoos that I enjoy using comes from Define and it is called Radiant Shine. The Define products were launched in 2005, and after four months from launching became the biggest line of hair care products in Norway, a spot which they kept even today. The aim of Define is to market the best quality products, at a reasonable price and that which you can buy from regular supermarkets. So, Define collaborated with the Elida Hair Innovation Centre from Paris (the ones behind products like Sunsilk, Dove and Tigi) and together used the newest trends and technologies from the haircare products industry. All products are tested before being marketed and constantly improved both in the labs from Lilleborg in Norway and by different Norwegian stylists.

The list with all shampoos and conditioners for hair care that they have on the market can be found here, and the list with the products for hair fixing is here (unfortunately only in Norwegian). The people at Define, being in a constant process of improving their products, have changed the bottle shape, so my picture shows the older version (I finished mine not so long ago) compared to the one listed on their website. Now, the shampoo that I use is named Define Pure Shine and I cannot wait to try it soon, I hope it is the same. The ingredient list can be found here.

What they say:

– the shampoo gives shininess to the hair without loading it, makes it look healthy and luminous;

– the shampoo cleans the hair from substances that detract from its shininess like dust or grease;

– the shampoo contains ingredients that repair and smooth the surface of the hair;

– the shampoo contains a UV filter that gives a protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun;

– the shampoo protects the hair from heat from dryers or hair flat irons;

What I say:

– the shampoo smells very nice, subtle, elegant and fresh, just as a shampoo should smell, the perfume is not too strong, just right;

– the shampoo washes the hair extraordinary well, you can feel that it is really clean after the second round of applying it;

– the hair rinses very easily and the shampoo is removed from the hair entirely, it does not load the hair in the end;

– the shampoo is fluid enough to flow easily from the bottle;

– the bottle I owned had a very good closing/opening system, I have not tried the new one yet;

– it would be nice to see a bit through the bottle how much there is left;

– it would be easier if their website would be available in English as well or if there were details about prices and delivery internationally. Otherwise I would recommend to use Google Translate to read their net pages :), and for info on the price and delivery you should use the form from here.

– the shampoo presents all the characteristics of a professional shampoo, at a much lower price then other similar products, so that it can be used at any beauty salon;

Conclusion: Thinking that the Radiant Shine shampoo from Define is one of the best shampoos I tried in my life and mostly because the price/quality ratio is very good, it gets 5 lilies from me .

P.S. I am very curious to try their powder for instant volume Define Instant Volume Power. I will come back with a review as soon as possible.
