Just for Men Control GX Shampoo & Conditioner Review

May 29, 2017

So it’s another guest review on the blog, and again it’s been taken over by my brother, who gives his very honest and constructive review of Just for Men Control GX Shampoo & Conditioner.         

So, I’ve been using Just for Men’s new Shampoo & Conditioner product – Control GX, for the last two weeks and here are my thoughts…

Firstly, I have only a few grey hairs to the side and rear of my head and certainly not enough to consider using a hair dye, so I thought I would give the Control GX shampoo a go.

It claims to slowly reduce the appearance of grey hair over two weeks, and provide a natural gradual colouring as opposed to instant hair dye. The box also states that it will not completely remove all greys.

My first thoughts were that this sounds like a very weak hair dye in a shampoo format, hence reducing the greys over a two-week period.

After using the shampoo & Conditioner for 2 weeks, I have definitely found that it has reduced the majority of the grey hairs to the side of my head (these particular grey hairs were a dark grey shade to begin with) and now look almost black and blend in with the rest of my hair.

I also found the smell of the product to be quite pleasing, and it certainly shampoos and conditions my hair just as good as any other product.

However, the application was a little too inconvenient for my liking. I was hoping for a Shampoo & Conditioner that I could use like any other. But with the Control GX, you have to use the palm of your hand’s or plastic gloves to massage the product in, otherwise it will dye your fingernails, therefore I found this difficult to integrate into my daily routine.

You should also be careful not to splash the product on any shower curtains etc. as it can stain them, as stated on the box.

In summary, I think this product is very well suited to people who want to gradually darken their grey’s to blend in with the rest, but it was a messy business!

Gents, fancy giving Just for Men Control GX a try? You can get it here.
