That's right people, I said Squid Ink. Let me say that again. Squid. Ink. For your hair. Weird, huh? Ever the brave beauty trier-outer, I went for it!
Okay, actually my stylist tried it on me first. Seeing as most fancy shampoos are around $20 or more, I couldn't afford getting my hair did and some new fancy shampoo. But my hair stayed soft for t h r e e d a y s. Pretty awesome right? Naturally, I was sold. I was hoping that my local Ulta would carry Jellua, but I think it's a newer brand so I had to locate a salon through their website. I found a salon close to my work and picked up this little beauty!
One thing I didn't realize right away is that the bottle is not actually that purpleish color. It's transparent pearl. So when you squirt some shampoo into your hand, it's a rather unsightly color. Okay, it's basically black. You might be thinking black shampoo should only be good on brunettes, but BFF Google tells me that it doesn't have the slightest effect on your color, even if you're blonde. It DOES, however, smell amazing and work small miracles on your hair. Yeah. That's how awesome it is. Like Jesus in a bottle.
I did also pick up a super mini conditioner bottle, because you know, I couldn't afford $20 shampoo AND $20 conditioner. However my stylist did let me know that you only have to use a tiny bit of the conditioner so it should last me a while anyway. The conditioner is probably the worse looking of the two, because it's a creamy greenish black, and it looks like shrimp poop. But! Do not fear my dears! I have tested and tried them out and I freaking love Jellua. Hubs is constantly telling me how good my hair smells. He did that every once in a while before, but the sniffs to my hair have increased tenfold.
So, if you are looking for a new fancy shampoo and want your hair to smell and feel amazing (seriously, it really smells incredible!), definitely try out Jellua. You won't regret it! (Though you may want to wear a blindfold.)
