I have had these bottles of hair care lingering in a box for quite a while, awaiting their turn in my shower. If I'd have known then what I know now, I wouldn't have let them wait as long as I did.

You know that I love LATHER skin and body care; I've been gushing about their products on this blog and on my Instagram for years. Now, I can add the LATHER Baobab and Shea Hair Wash and Conditioner to that esteemed list.

Baobab and Shea Hair Wash

  I have long, thick hair that still has a bit of bleach damage on my ends and I am a huge fan of the oils and silicones that can help make my hair look and feel better but they can really build up, leaving it feeling heavy and weighed down. LATHER Baobab and Shea Hair Wash is a gentle, creamy, sulfate free concoction that gently yet completely cleanses in one generous shampooing with a lush, cushioning lather then rinses away to leave my hair sparkling clean, fresh and lightly hydrated.

Baobab and Shea Conditioner

A good conditioner can make all of the difference in the look and feel of my hair and LATHER Baobab and Shea Conditioner does the job beautifully.

Do you know how difficult it is to watch Game of Thrones reruns while trying to write a blog post?

Anyway, This rich bit not too thick conditioner spreads easily onto every inch of every strand of my hair to get to work improving it's condition with strand building protein that fills damaged spots and smooths the hair shaft and moisturizing shea butter to impart deep softness and a silky feel. Ginger and citrus essential oils put the polish on to make my hair shine and leave it feeling bouncy and light as air. Combing with the conditioner in isn't good but when I comb out after rinsing and blotting, the tangles fall out of my hair with surprising ease. I most love the feel of my tresses after blow drying. My usual frizz is tamed and my hair is smooth and shiny with body and a nice swish. I love that swish.

This lovely hair care duo has a soft, clean, slightly soapy/sparkly scent that doesn't linger long. I like scented products and find this delicate fragrance pleasant but I think that if you're sensitive or scent averse, you might still get on well with these hair care heroes.

I like these products very much and I can wholeheartedly recommend that you give them a try.

water (aqua), cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, fragrance*, dicetyldimonium chloride, hydrolyzed adansonia digitata (baobab) seed extract, butyrospermum parkii (shea) oil, adansonia digitata seed oil, laurdimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed barley protein, hordeum distichon (barley) extract, panthenol, santalum album (sandalwood) wood extract, phellodendron amurense bark extract, zingiber officinale (ginger) root oil, citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil, ocimum basilicum (basil) oil, apium graveolens (celery) seed oil, behentrimonium methosulfate, glycerin, tocopheryl acetate, sodium phytate, hydroxyethylcellulose, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, phenoxyethanol, decylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, citric acid. *natural fragrance

  3. Lather has some wonderful products. I never tried their haircare but their body care is always a big hit for me! They sent me stuff back when I was pregnant but haven't tried them since. I'll have to revisit the brand and possibly look into their haircare.

  4. I've not tried these specific products, but I do like baobab and would have to jump on trying these!

  5. Glad that you said that the baobab was sustainably harvested because those trees are a food source for elephants, and years ago, anyway, the trees were endangered. I haven't tried any of the LATHER hair products, but I'm sure they are great since everything else is.

  9. The cleanser in particular sounds lush. I now prefer creamy, gentle cleansers to harsh, sulphate-laden products.

I love to know what you're thinking. I dig honest discourse and lively discussion, even a good debate. I do not dig hate speech or personal attacks either against myself or my gentle readers.
