|The Shampoo looks kind of like a mud masque, and the cream rinse like lotion.|
First, the SHAMPOO! It is a little bit gritty, and it doesn't lather. You have to use your fingers like a superstar salon shampooer to work it around your scalp. Then rinse, and do it again. Once the water gets in there with the shampoo, it works pretty well. It smells mildly eucalyptus-like, but it doesn't have any smell at all after it rinses out. Once my hair dried the first time I used it, it seemed matted down. It was greasy, matted, and static-y all at the same time. It was yucky- like my hair had just soaked it all up and wasn't letting any of it go. But, my scalp was ironically totally clean. My scalp was feeling better than ever. It didn't have that gross scalp build up that all the other shampoos leave behind. It was my actual hair that was nasty. THEN, the second time I used it, it was much better. By the FOURTH time I used it about 10 days later, my hair was amazing. A MAZ ING. I never thought I would have a trial of faith by shampoo, but in the end, this one came through. In theory, what happened was my hair going through detoxification. After my hair reached some sort of equilibrium, it was super happy, swingy, and healthy without being the least bit weighed down or greasy. It also seems thicker, not all stripped out anymore.
|This is about 10 hours after washing (without the conditioner), no styling products, no blow dry.|
They have sample sizes if you want to try them out for a week or two before making a plunge on a whole bottle. I think I'll write to Santa to see if he'll leave some more of the shampoo in my stocking!
