I tried the shampoo and conditioner and my results were a bit mixed. Honestly, I don't have the target hair type for this formula but I like to experience and share my impressions on different types of products. And sometimes, things that aren't targeted to you, specifically turn out to be a perfect match. I wish that had been the case with this shampoo and conditioner.
The shampoo lathers up nicely and got my hair very clean in one good shampooing. It is minty and refreshing, just don't let this shampoo run into your eyes! I was careful to keep it well clear of my peepers and they were still feeling the minty vibes. After rinsing, my hair felt as it does with many sulfate free shampoos, kind of dry, even though is was soaking wet and it was tangled and felt matted together, in spite of the fact that I am careful about how I wash my wurly, very tangle prone hair.
The conditioner is thin and also minty and cooling. I worked a generous amount through my hair and felt as if I needed more. I tried to comb out with my wide tooth shower comb but wet slip was almost non existent. I was barely able to finger comb my hair, much less use my shower comb. I finally gave up and twisted it up in a clip to let the conditioner soak in for a while then I rinsed it out. Combing was a tiny bit easier as I rinsed, with the water running through it. My scalp felt so refreshed and cool. I loved the sensation! This would be the perfect shampoo and conditioner for those long, hot Summer days.
I blotted my hair in a microfiber turbie and I did not apply any leave in conditioner or oil, as I normally do. I wanted to see how the shampoo and conditioner performed, on their own. Damp comb out was just okay. I could have used a little leave in to aid the process. I grabbed my paddle brush and blow dryer and my hair dried fast! One would think that I had applied a fast dry spray. I was impressed with how quickly my hair was dry. I had lovely volume and lift at my roots and crown and my hair felt very light and bouncy. My hair overall didn't feel all that soft, right after I finished drying it, tho it started feeling better after it relaxed in a messy bun for a few hours. Sadly, these products faded my creative colours quite badly. I was taken aback when I saw my hair after it was dry. This, I am afraid is a deal breaker for me.
While I am happy use oils and leave ins to supplement shampoos and conditioners and give my hair additional slip, shine and hydration, I can't bring myself to continue to use products that strip my colours so aggressively. To be fair, this shampoo and conditioner didn't have an adverse effect on my dyed blonde highlights or the darker lowlights, it was just the creative alternative colours I have in my hair that seem to be affected.
I think that this is good shampoo and conditioner. I truly do. I just feel that it isn't the right shampoo and conditioner for my hair. I am going to pass these along to my mother in law. I have a feeling that she will love these products and that they will be beneficial to her.
