Throughout most of my life, I gave very little thought to my hair. It’s always just been there. It’s long, it’s thick, and it totally has a mind of its own. Lately, though, I’ve been trying to get it to behave better, especially since the hairstylist at my annual haircut session (yes, I know, you’re supposed to get it trimmed like every six weeks, but that is way too time-consuming and expensive for me) told me that my scalp is looking a little dry. On the other hand, I’ve always been a bit obsessed with new bath and body products (a peek in my bathroom cabinet can prove this). Organica Pure was kind enough to give me a chance to treat my hair a little better and fulfill my need for more bath products by sending me their Organic Shampoo and their Delicate Body Scrub.
I only recently discovered aloe Vera shampoo, and it was in a product designed for my son, so I was pretty thrilled about trying one out for myself. Organica Pure’s shampoo contains both aloe Vera and honey. The aloe gently soothes and cleans your hair and scalp while the honey locks in moisture. The shampoo has a gel-like texture to it, so I was concerned that it would be globby or hard to work through my hair, but that wasn’t the case at all. It was really easy to use, even on my hair (remember, long and thick, and not in the “ooh, your hair is so luxurious!” way). I will admit, I wasn’t too into the scent at first because it is kind of strongly honey-scented, but once your hair dries it’s not really overwhelming anymore. I don’t mind a little too much scent as long as the product gets results, and it definitely did. In addition to leaving my hair feeling great, it also helped tame a bit of the poofiness, something I’ve been trying to do forever without having to resort to heavy styling products.
The Delicate Body Scrub, made with cocoa and honey is pretty great too. While the honey scent was a little strong in the shampoo, it was just right in the body scrub, especially when combined with cocoa. Again, I was a little concerned over the different texture, mostly because it feels filmy while it’s on your skin, but it rinses away perfectly and leaves behind a nice, soft feeling. This will be great in the winter, when my skin gets all dry and iguana-like (the term “alligator skin” is drastically overused by the skin care industry and iguanas are cuter anyway).
At $24 for the shampoo and $26 for the body scrub, Organica Pure products are a bit of a splurge, but I think they’re worth it.
