Disclaimer: compensation for this review was in the form of the argan oil, shampoo, and conditioner via Brandbacker & Pura d'or, but opinions are all mine.
Honestly, my hair tends to suck... it's thin, damaged from 15+ years of hot tool use, flat, and tends to get oily fast. But it doesn't look like that. In the past few years, I have learned what works and doesn't work with my hair. I have also learned that sometimes I have to splurge in order to get the results that I want. And sometimes, it's a type of Russian Roulette.
A few weeks ago, Brandbacker and Pura d'or gave me a chance to try out a few Pura d'or's products and I was super excited. Lately, I have been looking to natural and organic, but essentially cruelty, paraben, and harsh chemical free beauty products. And Pura d'or's products are all of what I am looking for. "At least 95% of their products are made with organic ingredients certified by the USDA, CCOF, Soil Association Organic and the Canada Organic Regime", their "paper inserts, brochures, cartons, bags, and shipping boxes are made of 100% post-consumer recycled materials using sustainable manufacturing processes", and their ingredients are "sustainably grown and raised with respect for the animals that eat them and the people who produce them."
Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo
Do to all the damage in my hair, my hair tends to fall out when I was it in the shower. So when Pura d'or sent me a bottle of their shampoo and it claimed to prevent hair loss, I was super excited. I loved the fact that it contained many different chemicals to creates thicker hair and prevents from further hair loss, but did not contain artificial colors, artificial fragrances and harsh preservatives. It also contained biotin, which is great for hair and nails.
Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner, Lavender Vanilla
Honestly, this conditioner smells ah-mazing! It's fussed with argan oil to add shine, body and moisturizers, and is fortified with multi-vitamins. Plus its ingredients promote control, manageability and superior smoothness.
Pure and Organic Argan Oil
Argan oil is the stuff that every one talks about... because it has so many benefits; it helps create smoother skin, restores nutrients to cells, reduces scars, helps repair hair damage, and more. Their formula is imported from South Western Morocco, cold Pressed, and unrefined with no chemicals added.
-----HOW TO USE-----
When I first used the products, I used them together. I wet my hair, and lathered up with the shampoo. The directions say to let it sit for two minutes, to allow the formula to infuse to your strands. After rinsing out, I added the conditioner. Left it on for another two minutes, and rinsed it out. Once I got out of the shower, I towel dried my hair. I used a drop of the Argan oil on my semi-dried hair, and started to blow dry.
Unfortunately, I realized that my hair was super heavy, and worst of all- greasy. So I had to re-wash my hair. I used the shampoo again, and a bottle of conditioner I already had in my shower. After I dried my hair again- I skipped the Argan oil- my hair felt light and nowhere close to greasy. A few days later, I washed my hair again, and only used the shampoo.
During the past few weeks, I have used the shampoo more than the conditioner. Even though the conditioner is labeled for all hair types, I feel as if it is too heavy for my thin hair.
The Argan oil was also used on my face, but it just felt too greasy. And I started to break out after using it- but I'm not positive if the breakout can be contributed to the Argan oil or hormonal changes.
I did notice that as I used the shampoo, there was less and less hair loss, which made me happy. And even though the conditioner smelt ah-mazing, I felt as if it was too heavy for my hair; which I felt the same way about the Argan oil.
Out of all three products, I would recommend the shampoo to anyone looking for something to help with their hair loss or thinning.
