    Default Andalou Naturals

    Have any of you tried these products?

    I've tried the one for volume, but I'm allergic to lavender so that was a no go but my mom who has finer and thinner hair than I really enjoys it.

    Now that my hair is feeling really dry,
    I picked up the one called moisture rich.

    Here are the ingredients:
    Shampoo-Aloe Barbadensis Juice*, Aqua, Sodium Lauryl Glucosides Hydroxypropyl Sulfonate, Sodium Cocoyl Methyl Taurate, Vegetable Glycerin, Glycine Soya (Soy) Milk, Vanilla Planifolia and Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Extracts*, Manuka Honey, Argania Spinsosa (Argan) and Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oils, Amino Acid Complex (Arginine, Threonine & Serine), Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Extract, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Hyaluronic Acid, Malus Domestica (Apple), Solar Vitis (Grape) and Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry) Fruit Stem Cell Cultures and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Borago Officinalis (Borage), Rosa Canina (Rosehip) & Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oils*, Glycol Stearate, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Amodimethicone, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) and Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extracts*, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil*

    They both contain a silicone, so you may need to clarify once in a while. They say "pH balanced" but I wonder, to what pH? Usually it means around 7, like water, but our scalp's pH is closer to 5.

    I got the moisture rich conditioner on a whim and just used it for the first time last night. The smell is delicious. I like the ingredients, but I think the "fruit stem cell" stuff is really goofy, and I was annoyed to reread the ingredient list as I was using it and find dimethicone down near the bottom.

    I think I didn't manage to rinse it out fully. In the shower it didn't give my hair much slip, and now my hair looks and feels coated. And a bit tangly. It did bring out the waves, though. And I'm still loving the smell. I'm gonna give it another shot next time and make sure I get absolutely everything rinsed out. (Edit: I'm definitely not going to be trying this one as a leave-in.)

    I've used the moisturising condish ( I think it had argan and orange blossom, or something?) and it was sooo good that it was single-handedly responsible for getting me back on cones.
    I think I was so hung up on using natural products that I never realised that my hair kinda loves and needs cones for slip.

    Anyone ever tried the Citrus shine shampoo? I just got a bottle today and I'm really excited to try it. Looking for a new shampoo since Giovanni 50/50 was reformulated

    Just wanted to update: I've used this shampoo about 3 times this week and I'm completely addicted. It's quite moisturizing and leaves my hair smooth and tangle-free.

    I haven't tried the shine one yet, but I have tried the volumizing line and didn't care for it. I worked wonders for my mom though. Does the line have cones? I think the argan one did.

    No cones as far as I see in the shine shampoo or conditioner. I think I may pick-up the conditioner this week, too. I really, really love this stuff. I've been shampooing daily (which would usually be overkill for me) and my hair just gets smoother and smoother (but not in a cone-laden way; it feels soft and moisturized)!
