Evening beautiful bloggers :)
So how many of you spend hours on your hair getting it poker straight with your trusty GHDs. Or perhaps you spend a fortune in the salons for a Brazilian Blowdry or if you are like me, have it permanently straightened with YUKO ( my godsend) seeing as i'm mixed race and naturally have afro frizzy hair eeurgh! With all this chemical straightening and constant use of heat appliances, i'm always on the look out for natural based shampoos and conditioners to keep my locks in tip top condition and seeing as i've now finished my 1litre Aveda shampoo and conditioner, i decided i wanted to look for a more affordable alternative.

About the products
The products are sulphate free which means you can use this on hair that has had the Brazilian Blow Dry or any other straightening/smoothing process. They contain a mix of antioxidant rich cocoa nut oil along with keratin proteins to help strengthen and soften the hair, while organic avocado oil and cocoa butter smooths the cuticle leaving you with glossy lush straight strong tresses! Sounds good so far, so lets see if it does what it says on the tin
What i thought of the products
Well first thing i noticed was how thick the shampoo was! It's like Jelly, literally. Very strange consistency but once it's mixed with the water and lathered up it's fine! It doesn't lather much but that's because it doesn't contain any sodium lauryl sulphate which is a very harsh foaming ingredient found in most shampoos. If you wash your hair twice, you will find that on the second wash, you will get a lot more lather. The second thing i noticed was the gorgeous smell, it's like coconuts and cocoa butter rolled into one and the smell stays on your hair even after you have blow dried and styled it too which is always good! The conditioner is very thick and detangles my hair nicely, making it feel very silky once it's been rinsed. Even though the products are thick, they don't leave my hair feeling lank or greasy, it just feels very soft and silky, esp after i have used my GHDs. I think the best thing about these products is the fact i am spending less time on using my GHDs in the morning. I found with my Aveda shampoo/conditioner that i would wake up in the morning and the end of my hair would be wavy where i had slept on it, but with the Organix, i am waking up and it has remained straight .. result! And the best thing of all, is they are only £7.99 each from Boots! Bargain!
Overall i'm very pleased with this, i will continue to buy it and am looking forward to trying out their 30 day smoothing treatment. I want to see if it lives up to the hype because if it does, it will have saved me a fortune in hair straightening which means more pennies for me to spend on other nice things ... yippee!!
So, have you ever tried Organix and if so what did you think of it?
Next review will be of the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean cleanser and the Naked Heat Defence Spray
