I’m a creature of habit, so I tend to stick with the same things and the same goes for haircare products. This week, I’ve been sent over some goodies from the Organic Shop to review, so I thought that this might be a good time to try something new!
I’d like to think that I’ve got good hair. I look after it pretty well, I keep blowdrying to a minimum and I limit the use of my trusty curling wand so I don’t do any lasting damage to my hair. The only downside is that I can’t experiment with a bunch of different products because I’ve got a very sensitive scalp. It never ends well when I pick any random shampoo from Boots or Superdrug to try, because my scalp goes haywire and it becomes such an expensive problem to fix, so I usually don’t bother. I was very excited however to find out that I would be receiving these lovely products from Organic Shop to try!
Each product costs only £2.50 and you can order them online on the Organic Shop website by clicking here or you can also buy them from Tesco, who stock the entire range. You can get a cheeky 20% off your first order if you sign up with the Organic Shop and they’re currently running a competition as we speak, so if you fancy a holiday for two in the Caribbean, then don’t forget to enter!
I got the Argan & Amla Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Mask, which according to the Organic Shop:
Helps to repair damaged hair, giving it vitality and shine. Used regularly, Argan and Amla Shampoo repairs styling and heating damage, to leave you with hair that bursts with life.
This seems like a good set for me, because if what they say about repairing styling and heating damage with regular use is true, then I don’t have to feel as guilty when I decide to put my curling wand to use! All of the products in the range are 100% cruelty free, are completely organic, use all natural ingredients and contain no hidden nasties; so there are no harmful microbeads, no parabens, no SLS, GMOs or mineral oils. I think products from here would be great for me because I need something that won’t irritate my scalp.
First impressions? I liked how the shampoo and conditioner have pumps. It’s so much easier to get product out, especially when you have wet hands, so this is a plus for me. There’s also a subtle scent to the products which I like – and to be honest didn’t really expect – because when I think about how organic things smell like, I often think of bland smells… like uncooked rice.
I thought the conditioner would be quite runny, because I find that cheap ones often are, and I actually spent a good few minutes turning the bottle upside down then back up again to see what the consistency was like. For the price, it’s incredible how thick the conditioner was! I’ve got thick hair, so I go through conditioner like nobody’s business, and with this, I didn’t even half to use half the bottle to make sure I had enough to get an even coating, which is fantastic.
As for the shampoo, I was pleasantly surprised at how foamy it got and how fast it foamed up – and I didn’t even use that much of it. Maybe two pumps max. It didn’t feel heavy while it was on my scalp and it washed out like a dream. The only thing stopping me from giving it two thumbs up is that I don’t know if my flare up today was because of this shampoo or because of the weird, constantly changing weather of today. I liked how my hair felt after using the shampoo and conditioner and I noticed that my hair was a lot shinier, which is great! I haven’t had a chance to use the hair mask yet, so I’ll definitely be following this post up to let you know how I got on with it.
And there you have it! To find out more about the Organic Shop and their range of beautifully organic products, just visit their website or simply click here.
