And Organic shampoo and treatment for damaged and colored hair

Hello everyone. It has been a while since the last time I reviewed a shampoo (almost one week is a lot for me:)). And here it goes another Japanese brand called “And Organic” (it is used in some hair salons in Japan). As you can guess it is silicone free. By the way if you just started using silicone free shampoos you might want to know that it takes time for your hair to get used to this kind of shampoos so please give it at least two weeks before you decide to throw it away:P

I have been using And Organic shampoo and treatment for a week and I am really happy about it. Not just only it doesn’t contain many “bad” stuff in it (parabens, sulfates, artificial colors and fragrance, TEA, DEA, MEA, phenoxyethanol) but it also cleans and lathers very well. I used this shampoo when I was trying coconut oil for my hair and it managed to wash it away completely. You will like the smell as well if you prefer light and natural scents like  lavender and citrus.

Treatment works great for colored or damaged hair like mine leaving it without any tangles. My hair felt soft and moisturized. I am sure I would keep on using this brand since I want to grow a healthy long hair again.

I was trying to find out if it can be purchased on such websites like Global Rakuten or Amazon Japan. However I couldn’t find it. But be sure to try this brand if you live in Japan!

K Pour Karite: French organic haircare

 

This is one of the samples I got in the department store last Saturday. And I’ve been trying  shampoo, treatment and hair styling cream for 3 days in a row (this is almost 99% organic so it is gentle enough to be used daily I think). I wish I could have tried it a bit longer but too sad –  it’s already gone. I always start with the smell if you noticed and this smells amazing, a mixture of various herbs including ginger and slight citrus scent (yay!). However it doesn’t last that long for shampoo and treatment, a bit longer for styling cream.

Shampoo cons:

* leaves hair coarse;

pros:

* lathers well;

* cleans well.

Treatment cons:

* does not moisturize enough;

* leaves hair still tangled right after washing;

pros:

* thick consistency;

* not greasy;

* makes hair softer;

* gives more bounce.

Two last ones might be a bit contradicting to the cons I wrote above but that is how I felt about my hair after drying and brushing. If you have longer hair I think you might have some difficulties in brushing your hair so maybe you should use a bit of oil. After drying my hair I used styling cream and then straightened it. I couldn’t tell it was there as it didn’t leave any sticky feeling. My hair remained straight and smooth for much longer than usual.
