I have had hormonal issues from quite some time now and when I started to read up about the dozens of chemicals in our everyday products & how they can screw up our hormones, I freaked out!! I threw out all face washes lip balms, moisturizers and other products of daily use which had any controversial ingredients. I now irk at the mention of pthalates & parabens and stay miles away from any product which have ingredients which aren’t clean.
Going all natural & chemical free isnâ€™t easy especially not with a shampoo & hoping to find such a product in India isnâ€™t easy either. The concept of clean beauty products hasnâ€™t picked up in this country. Yes, we are the land of ayurveda and natural products but are the products really clean? I highly doubt it..
I love reading and discovering all clean & organic products and this got me across Acure Organics. It is a brand that has some really high standards and has been raved about amongst the clean beauty users. Now, for a shampoo to work for me, I have the following requirements-
- It shouldnâ€™t contain SLS, pthalates & parabens
- Should clean my greasy scalp, control the sebum and shouldn’t cause hairfall in the whole process.
This shampoo satisfies all my requirements and is now my HG shampoo. Read on to know why I and my hair love it to bits..
Acure Organics describes the Shampoo as:
Clarifying shampoo gentle enough for everyday use for all hair types. Promotes shiny, healthy, clean hair. Organic Argan Oil, Argan Stem Cells + CoQ10 help support hair keratin and strengthen the follicle connection. Organic Avocado Oil provides vitamin B12 and moisture while lemongrass cleanses and clarifies. Safe for color treated hair.
I love the fact that the company is transparent about the ingredients in the shampoo. I personally like to know what has gone into the making of the shampoo. It is sls free & uses organic ingredients & the goodness doesnâ€™t stop just there- It is in fact free from all the nasties which have the reputation of imbalancing the hormones.
My Take On The Shampoo:
It has a clear gel like consistency which is something I prefer. I have greasy scalp with dry ends and I believe that gel shampoos clean my hair way better than the creamy ones. I use this shampoo like any other. Take a small quantity, mix it with sufficient water and then use it to form lather. SLS free shampoos have a reputation of not lathering well but this shampoo forms a comfortable lather just enough to clean the hair. It does not give a strong odor. It has a mild lemony scent which disappears quickly post hair wash.
This shampoo can be used for everyday clarifying but I don’t wash my hair everyday (nor should you) still I wouldnâ€™t recommend this for girls with dry hair. It is perfect for someone with greasy/normal hair type.
What I like about Acure Organics Lemongrass + Argan Stem Cell Shampoo:
- Complete list of ingredients
- Free from SLS, parabens and pthalates
- Cleans hair well without over drying them
- Did not cause hair fall
What I didn’t like about Acure Organics Lemongrass + Argan Stem Cell Shampoo:
- Non availability in India
Price: $9.99 for 8 fl oz
Availability: It is sold at full price on Amazon & acureorganics.com but is always available on discount at iherb.com. Do use code JMM442 for extra discount on your first iherb order.
My recommendation: One word to describe this shampoo is â€œamazingâ€. This has become my HG shampoo. I love this line of shampoos and can’t wait to try more from Acure Organics. If you are a organic/clean product enthusiast like me or are simply looking for a shampoo free from SLS, then this is the brand to try. You won’t be disappointed.
