Two words: GET IT!

I ran across a blog yesterday evening detailing the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle and Rose Shampoo and Conditioner. After reading the raving review, I did an online search for other reviews to corroborate the first one. I found tons of them LOL. Inspired, I trolled Amazon and  Vitacost at 2am to place an order lol.

Anywho, I woke up today and went product junkie shopping (don't judge me Stern%20Smile). I went to The Vitamin Shoppe, and lo and behold, I SAW THE PRODUCTS! I grabbed the shampoo and conditioner, pushed a little old woman out of the way and jumped over a 2 year old in my haste to reach the register. The total was about $17 or so (not bad!)...and I sped home to wash my hair (it is 90 degrees here today...my hair had been sweating as I had been out for 4 hours trolling for products lol).

The products smell great, and  A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY Shocked! I had read that the shampoo doesn't lather due to it not containing any sodium laureth sulfate, but I actually had quite a bit of lather in my head (I'm special).

I immediately noticed that my hair felt stripped...it felt completely naked, and so clean that it actually squeaked ConfusedLOLOuchBig%20smile...seriously Stern%20Smile. It really did squeak.

I began to doubt the conditioner at this point. Surely it would have to do a dang good job at moisturizing my hair since it is so...well...bare. I thoughts that since the shampoo had pretty much eliminated any 'oil' or softness from my hair, that the conditioner would simply not be able to replenish any moisture or softness. I cried a little, but pressed on.

I rinsed my hair.

I used a small (nickle amount, first) amount of the conditioner. I felt my heart stop as it touched my hair LOLLOLLOL.

This.stuff.is.the.bomb.diggidy.

OMG...the conditioner...it was like magic. Somehow, this little bit of conditioner not only slid across the bulk of my hair, but I could feel it working instantly. To say I'm impressed is an understatement. I enjoyed the experience so much that I added a quarter size amount of conditioner to my hand and began playfully slapping it into my head LOL. I was giggling and kicking my heels in the shower, enjoying the feeling of not only soft hair, but deeply moisturized hair. I rinsed, and my hair retained the moisture.

The best way I can describe the way these two products work in unison would be akin to Velcro...the shampoo being the loops, and the conditioner the hooks that attach to the loops.

These products are number 1 on my list...and seriously, I'm throwing my other shampoo's away.

Get it.

I like this combo.  I have been using the shampoo since the beginning of my natural journey (september 09) and it stripped my hair.  About a month ago I finally purchased the conditioner and using them together is wonderful.  Also I enjoy getting wifts of my hair smelling the combo as I walk down the street.

LOL Ditto. I let my s/o use some, and he asked if bees would be following him around. It made his hair soft, too...and his hair is extremely dry.

BHM has changed the state of his hair. He saw me using coconut oil one day, so he went out and made his own concoction of organic coconut oil, olive oil, tea tree oil, and something else that I can't remember. It works SO good, and his scalp is flake-free...his hair looks a lot healthier now as well. His combo stinks,  but it works good.

Hey, Dannie!

Does it leave a white film on your hair? Maybe it's just me, but I don't rinse all the conditioner out (I keep some in to keep my hair moisturized)...but I get build-up immediately. It could be my sealants, though...I'm still learning how to wash, condition, moisturize, and seal.

You have to try it...this stuff is amazing. I've honestly never felt any conditioner like it before...not even Nexxus Humectress can touch it LOL.

It's so heavy and thick that if you turn the bottle upside down, the conditioner will not come out. I was fighting like heck slamming the bottle againt my hand middle to force some out, and the bottle is completely full LOL. Just a tad goes a long way, and it has excellent slip.

...I've washed and conditioned my hair every day since Saturday Stern%20Smile. I've never been this happy about a hair product before...ConfusedConfusedConfusedOuch.

LAWD I can't wait til my Qhemet items reach!!! *weeeeeeee*

YES, GIRL! Clap Isn't it the best?
It makes my hair dance! As for the shampoos, I don't think I can deal with the shampoos. See, I keep hearing too often that the shampoos strip the hair and frankly, my hair isn't going to deal with that. I'm not trying to get us both fucked up! Dead

Aqua, cetyl alcohol, alcohol denat. (38b, lavender*), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, lonicera caprifolium (honeysuckle) extract, aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf juice*, glycerin, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, rosa rubignosa (Rosa Mosqueta®) seed oil*, citrus grandis (grapefruit) extract, tocopheryl acetate, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) fruit extract, humulus lupulus (hops) extract, melissa officinalis (balm mint) leaf extract, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, daucus carota sativa (carrot) root extract, beta-carotene, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, angelica archangelica extract, chrysanthemum sinense flower extract, magnolia biondii flower extract, ascorbic acid

Reading this list gives me a headache lol

Why in the world would they add denatured alcohol?  And why change a good thing?  Le sigh...  Thankfully I didn't stop by Vitamin Shoppe on my way to work and purchased this or I would have been one irate customer.

Ugh, so close.  If not for the alcohols and witch hazel, it would probably still be a good product Cry

Lawd, Jesus......NOOOOOOO!!!! They bet not touch my touch my jojoba and aloe conditioner nor my GPB conditioner!!! I really liked the way AOHSR conditioner but my scalp does not play nice with shea butter, hence the switch to the jojoba and aloe conditioner.

i just tried the conditioner two weeks ago and my hair felt really soft. it is definitely one of my fave condi's.

not sure why they changed the formula, but the denatured alcohol serves as a solvent...depending on the country of distribution, certain ingredients have to be stated in their entirety instead of being lumped together (e.g., creamy coconut base).

I do like this conditioner a lot. Very thick and creamy. However, despite the thickness, I didn't find that it gave me the slip I needed to detangle my hair, for some reason. I would buy it again but if my hair is tangled, I find HE Hello Hydration just can't be beat. I use the Aubrey AFTER I'm done detangling with the HE
