I am in love with the whole Aubrey Organics line. Lately, I've been trying to use shampoos that don't contain Sodium laryl Sulfate. I've read through various websites that SLS is a detergent-like substance that is inexpensive and is the reason why shampoos lather so quickly. i don't know about you but putting a detergent-like substance on my mane is not cool. That's where the Aubrey Organics line comes in. This company's products are all organic and all natural. I mean literally i love all of their items. But my absolute faves are the following:
After using this conditioner, my hair felt like silk, but the shine it emitted afterwards was downright insane. I also love knowing that my hair will not suffer later damage from using this. A lot of shampoos now are not only infused with SLS but with silicones as well which could be incredibly drying as well. The ingredients to this conditioner are so simple too: Coconut Fatty Acid Cream Base, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Shea Butter, Wheat Germ Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Rosa Mosqueta, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Extracts Of Fennel, Hops, Balm Mint, Mistletoe, Camomile, Yarrow, Chrysanthemum, Angelica, Forsythia, Honeysuckle Oil, Carrot Oil, Aubrey's Preservative (Citrus Seed Extract, Vitamin A, C and E)
My Friend Tanika is a super hot beauty. However, her relaxed hair never shines. And i mean the girl has spend 1000's of dollars on products trying to get that hair to be glam. Her birthday was 2 weeks ago, and I went to The Vitamin Shoppe and picked up a basket of goodies from the Aubrey line. i must mention, Tanika is a bit of a product snob. She thinks spending 100's of dollars on products equates to quality. i've told her often "it aint so" but she only recently believed me after she saw what the conditioner i got for her did to her luscious mane. She advised me that she went to the salon and gave them the conditioner, however she still used her Kerastaste as a shampoo (said she couldn't bear to not use one expensive product on her head). Anyway, the product i gave her was:
Well after they blew out her roller set, Tanika called me in tears. She was so happy. There was finally shine to her hair. For years she had used other lines as well as the Kerastase and didn't get shine but she told me and these are her exact words "holy crap my hair is gleaming." Needless to say Tanika is a new customer. The ingredients to Island Naturals Conditioner are as follows:
Coconut Fatty Acid Cream Base, Organic Aloe Vera, Wheat Germ Oil, Almond Protein; Extracts of Fennel, Hops, Balm Mint, Mistletoe, Camomile and Yarrow; Organic Coconut Milk, Jojoba Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Horsetail Extract, Coltsfoot Extract, Aubrey's Preservative (Citrus Seed Extract, Vitamins A, C and E), Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Rosemary Oil, Pimenta Leaf Oil, Allspice Powder, Organic Sage Oil, Carrot Oil.
Your hair needs protein. Thats for sure. Your hair is made of protein and using a protein treatment at least once a month followed by a moisturizing conditioner is essential for maintaining a healthy head of hair. This is probably my fave product from the Aubrey Line. i am in love with their GPB Conditioner. First, it smells like a dream, and what it does to your hair is downright mind-boggling. i use it as a deep conditioner then use the honeysuckle. i've noticed that my hair has much less breakage, amazing length, and looks so healthy:
