I am one of those people who always thought “Natural = Useless”. Thats a really immature thought and I am slowly but consciously trying to change that. If you know my blog for a while, you might have seen this post on my hair care routine where I have sung praises for the Kerastase line. I had been using it for more than a year now and felt it wasn’t working as well any more and I had to do a lot of post shower work on my hair to make it look good. All that is history now!
Little bit about my hair, I have thin hair in the front which tends to go limp easily. The rest of my hair is thick, but dry in the ends. I have had issues of breakage and hair fall almost always for the past many years now. My scalp is sensitive to certain ingredients which sadly I have not been able to exactly pin point, but for reference The Body Shop Rainforest line shampoos caused tiny painful bumps on my scalp every time I used it!
I must have tried countless shampoos and conditioners which have worked for a while and then stopped working or my scalp got the better of it and started reacting. But never through any of that did it occur to me to try an all natural organic hair product!
Meg from Lipsofacto is one of my favorite people on the web and when she suggests something, I sit up and listen! I read her review of the John Masters Bare Unscented duo eons ago and decided to give it a shot. I ordered it off Beauty.com, and ever since, it just sat there unopened and unused. A couple of weeks back I decided to take these out for a run and was instantly stunned!
Both the shampoo and detangler cost £14.5 in the UK and $14.5 in the US, each. I think for the price the product is well worth!
From the first wash itself I knew this was a keeper! My hair was soft, bouncy, clean, shiny, textured! Is that even possible?? I didn’t have great expectations starting off, but this one just blew my mind! I have been only using this shampoo and detangler for the past weeks and absolutely nothing else on my hair and it feels the best it has in a decade!
The shampoo is fragrance, sulphate and paraben free. It has Jojoba oil (to moisturise), white tea (detoxifying the scalp), chamomile (to cut on excess oil) and Hyaluronic acid (to lock in moisture). The shampoo does not lather much, but enough to nicely clean my my scalp without drying it up. The best part has been that my scalp has not gotten oily the next day so I have to wash it fewer times in a week. It is meant for all hair types, including sensitive and that I can vouch for!
The detangler has normal consistency minus the fragrance and wonderfully smoothes every strand! Except for Jojoba oil it has all the other ingredients from the shampoo besides, it also contains Arnica (a hair growth stimulant) and Calendula (an antibacterial). I use it all through my hair except the roots and put it all under a shower cap for 5 minutes. It gets easily washed out and my hair feels very nourished and not heavy at all. I did not need to add any serum or leave-in product post shower and my hair felt and looked amazing!
The Bare Unscented line has been such a revelation that it has opened my eyes to new possibilities with other all-organic products. I am very impressed with this line and brand in general and will definitely be trying other kind of products for face and body!
If you have other queries regarding this shampoo and detangler and my experiences with this, Ill be happy to answer!
Let me know what your favorite organic products are! I need recommendations now!
