In my youth, I was determined to never use anything less than Fekkai and Kerastase on my hair. Then I started paying my own bills and well, let’s just say $35 for a bottle of Shampoo and another $40 for conditioner didn’t sit well with my mortgage company. So… I started to try to figure out what I LOVED about Fekkai and Kerastase so much. The ingredients were really key and most of the ingredients are devoid of drying alcohol. They also don’t use parabens and sulfates and all those other icky things that are linked to horrid diseases.
I started to try a lot of Organic and Natural brands. And wow, there are a lot that just plain don’t know how to make a nice, moisturizing conditioner. Seriously. But one brand I’ve come to really trust and love is Organix. And I don’t have to break the bank to wash my hair.
They have several hair lines and have extended their reach into body recently. I LOVE the Awapuhi Ginger line with a passion and I also like the Macadamia Nut Oil and Argan Oil collections. But when I see a NEW Organix line, I get super excited. Geekily so.
I was at Ulta when I saw they had a brand spanking new shampoo and conditioner called Keratin Oil and it’s focused on breakage. And well, since ya know I love my blond highlights, yes, breakage can be a part of that whole process.
The shampoo is not as thick and creamy as Awapuhi or Macadamia Nut Oil and that made me a tad nervous but holy cow did my hair get super soft after the shampoo. I have a lot of wavy hair (the strands are thin but I have enough hair for 3 people!) and my hair NEVER gets soft after the shampoo but this stuff.. worked.
The conditioner is not as thick as the Awapuhi but similar to Macadamia Nut. At this point I was not as on the fence because my hair was already super soft thanks to the shampoo. The conditioner only enhanced that!
The scent of both is very subtle, kind of fruity… maybe a tad floral. I can’t really put my finger on it which is irritating me but I’ll figure it out.
If you want to try Organix, I usually find newer stuff at Ulta but also purchase their products at CVS. Something I HIGHLY recommend are any of their Dry Hair Oils. For my dry, wavy, processed hair, it’s a must to getting my strands to behave (most of the time… there are some days that not even a whole bottle of that oil would make my hair do what I want it to!).
Organix products typically cost $6.99 per bottle.
