Review > Organix Moroccan Argan Shampoo & Conditioner

I started using the Organix Moroccan Argan shampoo and conditioner about a month ago when I purchased when the 19.5 oz. was available at Ulta for the same price as the the regular size. If I remember correctly, Organix is normally priced between $7-$8, so it is relatively inexpensive.

The first time I used it I fell in love with it. #1, its Sulfate-free and leaves my hair smelling so good! The consistency of both are pretty standard to most other shampoo and conditioners, them having that somewhat lustrous look to them. I can say I've used both shampoo and conditioner evenly, so I'll have to replace both at the same time, which in my opinion is good. I hate having old shampoo left over when I've used all of the conditioner.

In addition to them being Sulfate-free, they claim to instantly penetrate the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening and creating soft, seductive, silky perfection. I can say that with the exception of the silky part, my hair did feel really soft and did not feel stripped after washing. I experienced minimal tangles and the conditioner gave my hair good slip for detangling. It also helps against UV damage and heat styling and has vitamin E and antioxidants in it.

I give this product a 4/5 overall and it will definitely be a staple in my regime going forward. The only thing I wish was that I could fine it in the 19.5 all the time, but that's really no biggie.

Thx for reading!
