Treat Your Hair Three Ways

The Simply Sensual Hair care trio is a kit to treat your mane three different ways. There is a deep cleansing feeling from the shampoo, a hydrating sensation for the conditioner, and a healthy shine from the shine serum. All are infused with pheromones to help make your hair just that much more attractive. The alluring smell of pomegranate and ginger leaves your hair smelling like spice and citrus.
Comparable to my usual, great gift idea, nice smell.
Expensive, shine serum is oily, condition runs out much faster, pumps stick, no pheromone reaction.

extremely useful review


Simply sensual hair care trio has three products to treat you hair with. This luxury trio is for all types of hair, even hair which is color treated. The ingredients are specially formulated to cleanse, restore moisture, and provide protective shine. These are even infused with pheromones.

Included in the trio are one 8 oz bottle of shampoo, one 8 oz bottle of conditioner, and one 2 oz bottle of shine serum. All of which are created to do their job well.

The shampoo is designed to cleanse your hair. The conditioner is design to hydrate your hair. And the shine serum is designed to add a shining coat to your hair.

There is a complete list of ingredients in the personal comments section, but there are some allergy causing ingredients in all three items.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The shampoo is fairly runny, but it lathers well: once it is lathered into your hair it stays in place until you rinse. If you just have the shampoo on your skin, it doesn't get sticky like some do. The pump bottle could be better. It tends to stick, not allowing many pumps in a row nor allowing a desirable amount for those with more hair.

The hair conditioner is thick, creamy, and velvety soft. This is just like your basic conditioner. It easily rinses out of your hair with water alone. The bottle is a push pump, but this pump is cheap. It tends to stick and not allow for much to come out at one time. So, for those with longer hair, many pumps might be required.

Shine Serum
The shine serum comes in a better bottle. The pump stops from over pumping and is easy to use, but if not stored upright it will leak. It is designed similar to antibacterial foaming hand sanitizer. The feel of the shine serum is similar to furniture polish. It has an oily texture and is extremely runny. It is greasy and hard to wash off the skin without soap.

Taste / Aroma

These products are not meant for tasting and should not be ingested.

These are labeled as pomegranate ginger. The bottle calls this smell alluring because it is meant to please the senses and make you simply sensual. The smell is like citrus and spice fresh out of the bottle, but after you completely rinse your hair and it is dried, that is not the smell left behind. The left behind smell just smells citrus clean; however, the shine serum does have the citrus and spice smell. Fresh out of the bottle the smell is overwhelming, but once the product is used the smell dissipates.


Depending on your hair length you should apply an adequate amount, then thoroughly scrub it into your scalp and hair. You will notice how well the shampoo lathers and coats the entire mane. There are no issues with the shampoo not rinsing out thoroughly. Once the shampoo is rinsed out, it leaves behind coarse hair, but the conditioner is there to save the day. There is a nice clean feeling to the scalp from using the shampoo.

The conditioner is used to add moisture back into your hair, so for those who prefer to have dry hair, you will want to skip conditioner. You will want to apply more conditioner than shampoo because the conditioner doesn't lather as easily. You need to coat your entire mane. Once the conditioner is added you can tell right away that the moisture has returned to your hair.

Shine Serum
The shine serum is meant to be added to damp or dry hair prior to styling. The shine serum adds a healthy, oily shine to your hair. Once it is applied it leaves behind the appearance like you ran a hair straightener through your hair, but it leaves a greasy residue behind. If you are not happy with the shine serum you will need to shower again to remove it.


The hair care trio comes in a clear plastic pouch that has a draw string top. Nicely placed inside are one 8 oz bottle of shampoo, one 8 oz bottle of conditioner, and one 2 oz bottle of shine serum.

Special Features

All three products have the same three pheromones in the ingredients, but there was no pheromone reaction from either sex. This was tested on both male and females with no pheromone attraction.

I usually use Herbal Essences body envy which is a volumizing shampoo. My hair is fairly long, since it goes down to the middle of my back. My hair is thick and coarse like horse hair, so conditioner is a must for my hair to even brush it. My usual brand comes in a 12 oz bottle which lasts about 2.5 weeks of silver dollar sized amounts. The Simply Sensual only requires quarter size amount for shampoo, but the conditioner requires about strawberry sized amounts. Therefore the week that I have been using it has left the shampoo at more than half of the bottle, but the conditioner is just about gone with enough for two or three more washings. For me the conditioner never lasts as long as the shampoo, but this is more than usual. I am pleased with how well it works for my hair. It works just as good as my Herbal Essences, but doesn't leave my hair with a strong scent, which I would prefer. I am able to brush my hair and style it as normal. It didn't make my hair frizzy or too dry, like some do.

The shine serum is not my cup of tea. It might work well in others' hair, but for me it made my hair have an unclean and oily appearance. I know it doesn't do that to all types of hair, so it just didn't agree with my hair type or my tastes.

All around this trio is awesome. I am very pleased that I had the chance to review it. I think this would be a lovely idea for a travel hair care set or a great gift to someone.
Follow-up commentary
While my bottles are long gone, they lasted about one month with daily washings. I still stand by my original review of this hair care trio. It's a wonderful buy. It's a little on the expensive side for size of the bottles, but still worth it. The only item I didn't like was the Shine Serum.
