Lacura Moisture Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner

Last Updated on April 6, 2021

While making my weekly Aldi shopping trip recently, I noticed some new products in the personal care and toiletry section: Aldi house-brand shampoo and conditioner. Based on the price signs, these appear to be products that will be on the shelves all the time and not just as limited-time specials. I also spotted some body wash and dandruff shampoo that appear to be new Regular Buys; keep an eye out for reviews of those products in the coming weeks.

Lacura Moisture Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner

The shampoo and conditioner are part of Aldi’s Lacura brand, which encompasses a variety of personal items. Lacura products that can be found at Aldi year round include face wash, day and night cream, and razors, with sunscreen also available for either all or part of the year.

In addition, a few years ago Aldi sold Lacura-branded kids’ 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for a short time, as well as offering limited runs of Lacura lotion, Lacura moisturizing body wash, and Lacura men’s body wash.

As far as I can tell, Aldi has never before sold shampoo and conditioner for adults under the Lacura brand. Instead, my local Aldi stores sell name-brand Pantene shampoo and conditioner, which for now are still available alongside the new Lacura shampoo and conditioner.

Lacura Moisture Luxury Shampoo and Lacura Moisture Luxury Conditioner each cost $2.69 for a 28-fluid-ounce bottle (about 10 cents per ounce). The bottles state that these compare to name-brand Moisture Rich TRESemmé shampoo and conditioner. A twin pack containing a 28-ounce bottle each of TRESemmé Moisture Rich shampoo and TRESemmé Moisture Rich conditioner from Walmart cost $6.98, or $3.49 per bottle (about 12 cents per ounce), at the time of writing. That makes the Aldi version the better deal. The Aldi bottles, by the way, state they are not manufactured or distributed by Unilever, distributor of TRESemmé products.

The Lacura shampoo and conditioner bottles state they contain Vitamin E and that each “quickly moisturizes dry hair for soft tresses.” These products were not tested on animals.

I don’t have as much experience with TRESemmé, but I usually use Pantene shampoo and conditioner, and these Lacura products work as well as what I typically use. They also smell good.

The only mild downside is that it’s sometimes difficult to squeeze product out of the conditioner bottle with one hand; the conditioner is thick and the bottle doesn’t give easily. That could probably be solved by storing the bottle upside down, though.

Otherwise, I’m happy with these products and I may have just found my new go-to shampoo and conditioner.

The Verdict:

Lacura Moisture Luxury Shampoo and Lacura Moisture Luxury Conditioner are comparable to TRESemmé Moisture Rich shampoo and conditioner. They seem to do the job as well as most comparable mid-priced name brands and are worth a try.

  1. Love Lacura Caviar, hair conditioner, but it’s almost impossible to get out of bottle. Needs a larger hole.

    • This shampoo makes hair look great but I had started using it also as a bodywash because I was out of mine.. I have broken out in a horrible chemical burn it is miserable. Very severe rash all over. I didn’t know what it was for a while until I heard stories about the ingredients in this shampoo online. It contains methylchloroisothiazolinone and very many people get a severe chemical burn. Maybe you are one of the lucky oes and wont break out.

  2. This shampoo and conditoner makes your hair look beautiful but I started breaking out in a bad chemical rash ALL over my body about 2 days after. It has spread everywhere.. They start off in blisters looking like burns then they pop.. Turning into a serious rash that fully spreads. I am in miserable pain itching. I didn’t realize it was the shampoo for weeks. I did some research. An ingredient called methylchloroisothiazolinone is on the back of both bottles. A ton of people are allergic to this and do not know it!!! Please start checking the back of your shampoo bottles this ingredient causes a severe chemical burn and it will make you miserable. I have quit using it and it is starting to clear but I am still itching and having to use anti itch creams. You may think this kind of thing will never happen to you but it happends!! You may be one of the lucky ones who is not allergic to methylchloroisothiazolinone but very many people are. Thank you.

    • Methylchloroisothiazolinone is a common preservative in many cosmetics. Glancing at the various brands of shampoo and conditioner bottles in my bathroom, Pantene, Dove, Suave, and Trader Joe’s all contain it, so you’re probably not going to have an easy time finding products that don’t have it. The rate of people who experience contact allergies with it is about 8 percent, and it’s generally used just in products that are intended to be rinsed off. https://www.healthline.com/health/methylchloroisothiazolinone#takeaway
