Szampon marokanska ksiezna jest moim kolejnym nabytkiem od firmy Organic shop. Produkt okazal sie na tyle dobry, ze zamierzam go kupic ponownie.

szampon marokanska ksiezna butelka


Wedle producenta szampon marokanska ksiezna jest idealny do wlosow, ktore sa zmeczone, zniszczone i suche. Szampon ma zregenerowac tego typu wlosy za pomoca organicznego ekstraktu z kwiatu pomaranczy oraz organicznej oliwy, ktora odzywi wlosy od cebulek az po ich konce. Szampon  jest bogaty w witaminy i mineraly, dzieki ktorym struktura wlosa zostanie wygladzona, rozdwojone koncowki wlosow beda zreperowane, a problem  przesuszenia zniknie. Dodatkowo wlosy stana sie miekkie i blyszczace. Brzmi niezle, prawda?  Choc musze Wam przyznac, ze produkt ten wybralam nie tyle ze wzgledu na jego opis, co zapach, ktory jest niesamowity. Nie potrafie Wam go opisac, ani do niczego przyrownac, trzeba samemu powachac. Trzymajac szampon w dloni wyobrazilam sobie, nie wiedziec czemu, slniace w swietle ksiezyca wlosy marokanskiej ksiezniczki:).

Szampon jest w 99% naturalny. Ma certyfikat eko- BDIH (cosmos natural).  Brak SLS, parabenow i silikonow. Nie testowany na zwierzetach.

Moje przemyslenia na temat szamponu marokanska ksiezna

Szampon oprocz tego, ze pieknie pachnie, to nie podraznia skory glowy, co wazne dla osob, ktore musza czesto myc wlosy, maja wrazliwy skalp albo jedno i drugie. Wiele szamponow drogeryjnych potrafi wysuszyc skalp na wior doslownie :(.  Szampon, jak na produkt naturalny, calkiem niezle sie pieni. Nie wysusza wlosow, pozostawia je czystymi, ale nie sa one tak czyste, ze az skrzypia. Kosmetyk jest lagdny, nadaje sie do czestego stosowania. Nie zauwazylam jakichs niesamowitych wlasciwosci pielegnujacych szamponu, ale z drugiej strony producenci zawsze przekonuja nas o takowych, a przeciez zadaniem szamponu jest dobrze umyc wlosy, a jednoczesnie im nie zaszkodzic czy to przez przesuszenie, czy tez podraznienie skory glowy. Wlasciwosci pielegnacyjne powinien miec balsam, maska czy serum do wlosow. Dlatego po umyciu wlosow szamponem marokanska ksiezna trzeba uzyc odzywki.

Posumowujac

Plusy:

-produkt naturalny z dobry skladem,

-nie testowany na zwierzetach,

-dosc dobrze sie pieni,

-lagodny, myje wlosy nie naruszajac bariery lipidowej skory, czyli moze byc czesto stosowany,

-piekny zapach,

-nie powoduje lupiezu, a wiec nadaje sie dla osob z wrazliwa skora glowy.

Minusy:

-nie spelnia obietnic producenta.

Mimo wszystko polecam ze wzgledu na jego lagodnosc, sklad i przystepna cene.

Pozdrawiam,

Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo

Hello,

today I would like to review a Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo. 

The shampoo is suitable for dry and damaged hair. It is made with 72% organic ingredients and contains organic jojoba seed oil and organic sage leaf extract. The shampoo should help to strengthen the hair by reducing breakage and split ends.

After the winter and wearing the hat for a couple of hours a day my hair became dry and damaged like never before. Luckily I don't have split ends but you could easily notice the breakage, especially in the strong light. I must say it was a very unpleasant surprise for me:(. 
I wanted and needed to improve the condition of my hair fast.  As you know I prefer natural body and hair care products but I knew that this time natural conditioner will not help. I needed something with silicons so I purchased professional masks and oils (Kerastase Elixir Ultime oil and products from Schwarzkopf Bonacura Miracle Barbary Fig Oil ). I thought to myself:  ok those products are packed with chemicals so I need a decent natural shampoo. But which one? After doing some research I picked up the Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo. And that was a good choice:).
This shampoo has helped with condition of my hair a lot. It is moisturizing, it does smooth the hair. It adds volume and shine. My hair is oily but this shampoo didn't weight it down. It didn't irritate my sensitive scalp either.
Weleda-Oat-Replenishing-Shampoo-ingredients-back
Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo, back of the bottle
Because it contains mild and biodegradable surfactants it doesn't lather much (like most of natural shampoos).  But don't worry it will still clean your hair properly but please remember to distribute the product evenly. The best way is to mix the shampoo with water prior to application. 
The shampoo has pleasant scent- according to the producer it smells of mimosa flowers and tonka beans.
The consistency is rather runny, so it will not last too long. The bottle consists of 190 ml of product and the cost is about 8-9 euros.

Pros:
moisturizng

strengthening
adds volume
gentle to the scalp - you can forget about itchy and irritated scalp:)
doesn't weight down the hair
lovely scent

good natural ingredients
72% of ingredients are organic


Cons:

price
consistency-a bit watery so it will not last too long

I can highly recommend Weleda Oat Replenishing shampoo to all of you. It is a good, delicate and natural shampoo that will moisturize and clean your hair gently yet efficiently.

Thank you for reading.

Joanna

Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo

Hello,
today I would like to review a  Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo. This shampoo is supposed to stimulate and revitalise the hair. It is made with 70% organic ingredients.

I am a fan of natural hair and body care and I am always happy to try something new.
In the past I have not had much luck with natural or organic shampoos. They were either irritating my scalp or overdrying my hair. And they were expensive as well. However, I wouldn't give up and kept searching for a decent natural shampoo. 
Bentley-Organic-Frequent-Use-shampoo-on-my-table
Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo

Recently I have found Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo.
I must tell you that I am really happy with this product. This shampoo is mild and doesn't irritate my scalp because it doesn't contain nasties like sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate:). Instead it contains many good ingredients like aloe vera, citrus oils, sunflower oil, chamomile flower oil and extract.

Bentley Organic shampoo is gentle enough to be used daily. After washing my hair is clean but not squeaky clean which means that this shampoo doesn't strip natural oils from the scalp.

The shampoo has a lovely citrus scent. It does not lather too much so you will need a generous amount of the product. This way the shampoo will not last you too long. Mine lasted about 3,5 weeks.

Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

Hello,
how are you? Today I am reviewing a Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY SHAMPOO. I am sorry to say that but this shampoo is a big NO NO for me. It basically irritated my scalp so badly that I got dandruff:(.
Madara-Gloss-and-Vibrancy-Shampoo-in-my-hand
Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

But let me say a few words about Madara company. Madara is a Latvian company producing natural and ecological cosmetics. They have ECOCERT certificate. Their cosmetics are not tested on animals and they are trying to obtain a Leaping Bunny certificate. They are using recycled packaging materials. I actually like their packaging a lot: it is mainly green or white, minimalistic yet elegant.

Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo


But back to the shampoo. The producer claims that Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo will clean the hair in a gentle way. The hair will be protected and it will have more volume. It will also become stronger, silkier and shiny. Ehem...
For best results they recommend to use this shampoo with Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Conditioner which I have bought as well. I am going to write a review about it later.
Why did I buy Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo? Mainly because I have read good reviews about it. I remember that one of the bloggers wrote that this shampoo has even helped them with oily scalp. I was sold:). I had really high hopes for  this shampoo. Other thing is that Madara is quite popular here in Finland.

Madara-Gloss-and-Vibrancy-Shampoo-in-my-hand-showing-ingredients
Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

After the first application my scalp felt really irritated, it became  itchy and the skin started to peel. I didn't want to believe that this was happening because of the Madara's shampoo. I was trying to convince myself that this was normal, that the shampoo was removing some buildup from the scalp. Only I was not really sure what kind of buildup that would be because I  use neither styling products nor silicons.
Full of hope I washed my hair again- the same thing happened: itchy scalp and dandruff. All together I have tried six times and it always made my head itchy (and scratchy:)) and gave me a lot of dandruff. 
I have stopped using Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo but it took some time for my scalp to eventually calm down.
Why it all has happened? I think because this shampoo cleanses the hair TOO well, in a rather aggressive wayThis is all quite ironic because producer says that this shampoo will clean your hair in a gentle way. Instead you get the hair stripped of natural, protective oils ( but it is indeed clean, squeaky clean).
The only nice thing about this shampoo is its smell. 
A quick summary:
Pros:

  • nice fresh smell
Cons:

  • irritated my scalp enormously
  • gave me dandruff
  • tangled the hair 
  • the price-over 12 euros
I do not recommend Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo from Madara at all. It does nothing good to the hair, on the contrary it may irritate your scalp and give you dandruff. Better save yourself the money, and save yourself the disappointment.

Timotei pure shampoo-good for the hair or good for the floor?

Hey,
how are you? I have noticed that most of the time I have been reviewing my favourite products but this is because I prefer to write about the happy things and the good products. This way hopefully I am creating a nice atmosphere.
But today I would like to review something that I don't like:). This is the Timotei pure shampoo. Maybe you know that I have oily scalp, greasy hair and I need to wash my hair almost every day. When I feel lazy I use a Batiste dry shampoo. But still I am hoping that one day I will find a shampoo which will help with my oily scalp and I will be able to wash the hair every second day:). 

Timotei-pure-shampoo-on-my-kitchen-table-ingredients-front
Timotei pure shampoo

I have bought this product because I was a little bit disappointed at natural shampoos which are much more expensive but don't do much for my hair. In the shop I have spotted this "pure" shampoo for greasy and normal hair. I thought, well, it has "0" parabens, colourants and silicons plus it contains an organic green tea so it must be good. And, I forgot to mention it is cheap. Of course, I got it. 

Timotei-pure-shampoo-on-my-kitchen-table-ingredients
Timotei pure shampoo

Is it any good? I don't think so. I don't expect miracles from the shampoo but it should at least clean the hair properly, especially that it was created for the oily hair
Here is my opinion:

Pros:

  • price
  • availability
Cons:
  • it doesn't clean the hair properly
  • weights the hair down
  • annoying smell (I certainly doesn't smell like a green tea)
Timotei-pure-shampoo-on-my-kitchen-table-back
Timotei pure shampoo

At this point I won't be writing about moisturizing or nourishing properties of this shampoo because this is what a decent conditioner should do. But what I wanted to accentuate is that this shampoo really doesn't wash the hair properly. After washing my hair was still feeling dirty and without the volume.
And because I didn't want to throw this shampoo away I decided to use it as a floor liquid cleaner. Now I am happy I have finally finished the bottle:). I would not recommend this product but still we are all different and I am sure that  some of you will find Timotei pure shampoo suitable. What are you experiences with this product? I am curious what are your favourite shampoos? Maybe someone would like to leave a comment?

Thank you for reading

Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel, white clay review

Hi,
how are you? Do you know Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel? What do you think about it?.It has white kaolin (clay) and suppose to be good for cleaning the skin and the hair.


Logona-White-Kaolin-Lotus-Flower-Cleansing-Gel-covered-in-water
Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel 
  
I have just bought it because I have problem with very oily scalp. Basically I need to wash my hair everyday which is sometimes frustrating, especially now during winter. I have no time to wash my hair in the morning and I don't want to use a hair drier either so I wash the hair in the evening. But the following morning my hair is only "semi fresh".
I have tried many things to prolong the freshness of the hair: different shampoos, skipping conditioner, different diets ( I would like to write a long post about later) etc. but it hasn't really changed anything.

Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel 

Yesterday I bought this  and I have used it already once and to my surprise it made my kind of dirty. I mean it left the hair covered with some kind of oily film? I don't know if I have done something wrong? I mean I have washed the hair twice, I have rinsed it really well and I have even skipped the conditioner because I didn't want that something else would interfere with this clay.

I forgot to mention that this has really good and few ingredients (Aqua (Water), Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Parfum (Essential Oils), Nelumbo Nucifera Extract, Limonene) and less is more in his case:).
What do you think? Have you had any experience with this product or kaolin in general? I would be glad if you could share it  with me. Thank you for reading.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry

Hello,
how are you? Batiste Dry Shampoo is a real "godsend" for those who, like me, have problems with oily hair. My hair gets oily very fast and honestly I should wash it daily. During the summer I can do it because I let the hair to dry naturally but during winter months...argh...I have to admit that sometimes I just feel too lazy to wash it in the mornings, especially if I have to use a hair dryer. Firstly it is unhealthy for the hair, secondly it is time consuming. But luckily the answer to my troubles is Batiste dry shampoo. I just spray it a few times and the hair is fresh again and smells nice. The effect stays all day. However, the shampoo contains butane which is very unhealthy. Even the manufacturer warns against too frequent usage of the shampoo and  recommends to keep a  distance when spraying the hair. Because of all this I try to use the shampoo rarely, let's say in "emergency situations"(like oversleeping:)). What do you think about dry shampoos?
Ingredients:
butane, isobutane, propane, oryza sativa (rice) starch, alcohol denat., parfum (fragrance), distearyldimonium chloride, cetrimonium chloride.
