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
. 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
). 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
! 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
. 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
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
. 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.
