    Default Carina Organics

    This is a Canadian brand thatís sulphate- and silicone free. They also have fragrance free options. I think their shampoos are soap based but please correct me if Iím wrong.

    Iíve been using their spray leave in with sweet pea and Iím loving it so far. This one doesnít contain any ingredients that build up on my low porosity hair, yet it makes it So Soft. Even when my hair isnít having the best hair day ever, this kinda saves it. Itís worth the price and hassle of importing in my opinion. (I recognise this is different for everybody) I just hope it will be more accessible in Europe in the future.

    Hi, I use these products shampoo, conditioner and leave in (sweet pea) and like you I find the leave in works great, have to say its my favourite.

    I found Carina Organics very similar to Calia Natural in terms of composition and performance -- Calia might be more accessible to you in Europe. I discovered that neither Carina nor Calia worked for me in the long run. I loved what they did to my hair, making it feel so soft and hydrated, but I had a very strange skin reaction to their products. I had patches of dermatitis form on my eyelids and they caused a sunburn and eczema-like reaction on my extremities which I never experienced before. I'm still trying to figure out what ingredient caused it!

    Oh no, I hope you identify the culprit soon so you can avoid it!

    I own the Calia Hydrating Leave In Spray and that is not my cup of tea. It has guar so it builds up, I don’t like the smell so I’m glad it doesn’t linger and I don’t feel like it’s benefitting my hair when I use it. You are right, I can get Calia easier, it’s a shame for me I like the Carina one much better

    Oh no! I never noticed the guar in the Calia formulation. And I agree, the scent of the Calia products is nowhere near as nice as Carina's offerings. The Sweet Pea was so lovely! It's a shame Carina hasn't expanded to European customers the same way Calia has.
