I bought this cleansing wash during my product junkie days. As I had so many shampoos I shoved it the back of the cupboard and forgot about it. Recently whilst tidying up, I rediscovered it and decided to give it try.
The product has a light consistency with a fresh citrusy fragrance. According to the label this product contains no: petrolatum, mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, colorants or phthalates. So far, so natural-hair-friendly. Then I actually used the product.
I really wanted to like this product but it just felt weird. Because the ingredients are ‘natural’ this cleanser does not ‘sud’ or ‘foam’, so when I put the product onto my hair it felt like I was using a cream as opposed to a shampoo. It was also difficult to massage into my scalp as I couldn’t ‘feel’ the product. It felt like thick water, really odd. Anyway, after I felt like I’d wasted enough time trying to cleanse I tried to detangle my hair, which I must say wasn’t too difficult, but still I didn’t enjoy using the product. And if I don’t enjoy using a product it gets relegated to the back of the cupboard, which sadly is where this product now languishes.
I think this product would be good for people with short Afros who require gentle everyday cleansing. For those of you with more than 4 inches of hair you may find this product very frustrating to use.
