Today I’m back with even more hair talk! I talked about my favorite hair products a few weeks ago and in that post I mentioned that I don’t use shampoo. I started using only conditioner a few years ago after reading about the no-poo method. The reason I subscribed to the method is because I have frizzy, curly hair and I found out that many shampoos have chemicals that can be harmful to your hair. The method that I decided to use is called co-washing or co-only, short for conditioner only. Conditioners contain ingredients that do cleanse hair, and also leave it moisturized without stripping hair’s natural oils.
Since I started this method, many more shampoos are on the market that don’t contain harmful chemicals and are made for people with hair like mine specifically, but I have mainly stuck with only using conditioner in my hair. I was recently given the opportunity to try Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Conditioner and this shampoo does not contain sulfates or silicones – the first no-no’s for hair like mine! Of course, the conditioner does not contain these harmful products either!
The shampoo and conditioner are infused with an exclusive blend of Country Life Maxi-Hair® plus Biotin as well as Keratin and Pro-Vitamin B5 and claims to helps reduce breakage up to 61%. When I shower, a lot of my hair breaks off. I saw a big difference after just using these products a few times!
Desert Essence was founded in 1978 and uses nutrient-rich desert botanicals in their products. I have also tried their Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner and I am pleased with them as well. This product contains apple cider vinegar, which is actually one of the products the no-poo method cites as a good way to cleanse your hair when not using shampoo. Desert Essence makes me feel comfortable using shampoo, so I have been using shampoo again since receiving these products.
Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Conditioner is available to purchase at Natural Grocers, Luckys Market, MOM’s Organic Market, and many other local natural food stores.
