I’ve been trying to get back into a more natural way of living lately. Having been consumed by work over the summer and autumn, I feel like I’ve been thrown off self-care balance a bit. So I went onto http://www.naturalskincare.ie and ordered a bunch of stuff, as you do.
I’ve normal to fine hair so I thought I’d try John Masters Organic Normal to Fine Hair Collection (because obvz). This is the Lavender Rosemary shampoo, the Citrus & Neroli conditioner and the Deep Scalp Follicle treatment (which I’ve never done before!).
The shampoo says it will make the hair shinier, thicker looking and increase volume as well as slowing hair loss. The conditioner says it increases shine, volume and fullness. It also says it treats dry scalp and strengthens the hair. The Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment promises to stimulate blood flow in the scalp which encourages healthy hair growth, and it eliminates free radicals, as well as apparently being an excellent volumiser for thin/fine hair.
I found the smell of the products were gorgeous, especially if you love essential oils. But the lovely smell didn’t last on my hair – only when I was using the products was there any smell, which is disappointing. But my hair definitely did feel lighter and looked healthy and shiny. I’ve only started using these products and I found them good so I don’t know the longterm effects I’m just going over the immediate results I’ve gotten. I’d buy again if they weren’t so pricey at about 20 euro each nearly which isn’t ideal if you’re a college student with unfixed work (like me!).
I do absolutely adore the fact that PETA endorses John Masters Organics, it’s actually an organic line (which means no nasty chemicals and pesticides, which are harmful in the longterm), and that a lot of the products are suitable for vegans. Below I’ve gone onto the website and copied and pasted the guidelines the company follows.
All ingredients must meet strict guidelines :
1. All products must be made with 70-100% organic content
2. No sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, DEAs, MEAs, or TEAs
3. No GMOs (Genetically Modified Organism)
4. No animal testing
5. No artificial colors, fragrances or fillers
6. All plant extracts and essential oils must be certified organic whenever possible
7. All essential oils used must be steam-distilled and not extracted with propylene glycol – which kills the
effect of the oils
8. All plant oils must be cold pressed, not heat distilled – which kills the therapeutic properties of plant oils
9. All ingredients must be proven to be beneficial to the hair or skin
10. All ingredients must be harvested in an environmentally-friendly manner (wild-crafted)
11. All ingredients must be bio-degradable as possible
