Are any of my readers familiar with soap nuts? As someone who is trying to use more and more natural and eco-friendly products, one thing I have struggled with is finding some good hair care options. I discovered NaturOli through their soap nuts, but then learned they also offer personal care products, such as shampoo. I was very excited when they agreed to a review and giveaway, and after using the products, I am so excited to share them with you!
I received the Soap Nut Extreme Hair Shampoo and NaturOli Hair Serum. The shampoo is for oily to normal hair, so I wasn't sure how it would work-my hair is dry, and I have to constantly condition and use leave-in moisturizing products to keep it in a healthy, moisturized state. This is gentle enough for daily use, or can be used every other day for extra cleansing. Almost like a clarifying shampoo, as it removes product build-up, dead skin cells, etc. Because it's made for oily hair, I have been using it every couple of days, and noticed a huge difference in my hair. It really washes away all that junk, and leaves my hair in a naturally healthy, clean, and beautiful condition. Yes, I do have to use a conditioner, but I love being able to get my hair and scalp really clean, with a natural, good-for-you and good-for-the-earth product! I love this so much that I brought some along in a travel bottle while on our 3-week trip.
The NaturOli Hair Serum is basically a shine and smooth serum, only natural. Made from essential oils, including organic Moroccan Argan oil, it reduces frizz, adds shine, and smooths your hair. Oh, and when they say to use sparingly-they really mean it! My first time, I applied the same amount of oil that I usually use with a smoothing serum. It left my hair nice and shiny-and with a greasy look! After washing it out, and then applying a very tiny drop, I had smooth hair with a nice shine, without that greasy look! That'll teach me to read-and follow-instructions from now on! Honestly, it works great and again, I love being able to get beautiful hair with natural products!
