Review: Organix Shampoo and Conditioner


Hello there! So a while back I bought the Organix Macadamia Oil Shampoo and the Organix Argan Oil Conditioner. Although it states in the back of both bottles that it's preferable to use the products of the same line, I ended up buying different ones because they weren't available at the store the day I purchased them. Before getting started, I think it's important to share my hair type, since the results of hair products tend to vary from one person to another. My natural hair would a a Type 2B Wavy Curly with a mix of some 2C Wavy Whirly. Last year I got the Brazilian straightening treatment. However, I feel like my curls still haven't returned back to normal completely.

Anyway, I became interested in the brand Organix because all of their products have natural ingredients. Last year, before getting the straightening treatment, I tried out their Coconut Milk Mousse which I did not like -- it dried out my hair. But a couple of months ago I started searching for reviews on their shampoos, and many people recommended it. Hence, I ended up buying it.
Curiosity killed the cat, or didn't it?


To be honest, I was disappointed in the first use. My hair was not nourished at all, I felt it get a little more dry. In my opinion, the shampoo is a little harsh even though in their website,  it states that it doesn't contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Laurel Sulfate. My hair is colored treated and after a few washes, the color changed becoming slightly more brassy. Nevertheless, when I switched the order in which I wash my hair (conditioning before shampooing) the results were completely different. My curls became defined, bouncy and frizz-free. The argan oil conditioner smells great but it doesn't last. 

In conclusion, do I recommend it? Yes and no. Every one's hair is different, and what works for me may not work for you and vice versa. I don't plan on repurchasing it, I'd rather keep on exploring new brands. The product is not bad, it gets the job well done. But I personally think that the price for which I payed did not compensate the results obtained (Ogx products are a bit expensive here in Peru).

P.S. If you're wondering why I wash my hair in an odd order, I'll be making a post about that soon.
