My First Impression: Creme of Nature Mango & Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner + Acai Berry & Keratin ShampooTuesday, October 11, 2016
I grabbed these new Creme of Nature products at the Beauty Supply Store a couple weekends ago. If you know me by now, I am a Creme of Nature fan plus they were extremely affordable! I've tried each product, however, I cannot provide my full review as I haven't used each product long enough. But here is my first impression so far:
Creme of Nature Acai Berry & Keratin Strengthening Shampoo - For Dry, Damaged Hair - $4.99 CAD
I always wanted a strengthening shampoo and this shampoo stood out to me! The acai berry ingredient serves to prevent damage and the keratin amino acids aid in hair repair. The shampoo is an opaque pearlized purple colour and smells like tropical grape fruit juice - no lie! It's so delish the scent does not leave your hair for days :) To be honest, I have never seen purple shampoo before so that alone was fascinating to me lol! I don't need much product for it to lather and it rinses out easily. Though there is a mild sulfate in the Shampoo (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), my hair remained moist and felt durable after rinsing it out.
Creme of Nature Mango & Shea Butter Ultra- Moisturizing Conditioner - For Dehydrated Hair - $4.99 CAD
This conditioner can be used as an instant conditioner or as a deep conditioner with heat for 10 mins+. The conditioner is orange in colour yet semi thick in consistency. The conditioner has the exact same tropical scent as the shampoo. It's truly heaven! I've been using it with heat under my steamer for 20-25 mins. The conditioner spreads easily onto my hair - no issues there! So far I find the conditioner softens my new growth and hair pretty well. Unfortunately there's not much slip while rinsing out the conditioner.
Creme of Nature Mango & Shea Butter Ultra-Moisturizing Shampoo - For Dehydrated Hair - $4.99 CAD
This shampoo states that it is enriched with certified natural mango and shea butter. The mango ingredient serves to condition and protect the hair while the shea butter will moisturize and soften the hair. It also has Olive oil and Shea Oil. The shampoo is an opaque pearlized orange colour plus it smells amazing!! It has a prominent tropical fruity scent that lingers in your hair. It lathers well and rinses out great. Though there is a mild sulfate in the shampoo (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), I find the shampoo is highly moisturizing, slippy and detangling while I rinse it out. It kinda reminds me of the CON Argan Oil Shampoo that I adore.
So, I will continue to test these products out on wash day and see how my hair reacts overtime :)
Have you tried any of these new products by Creme of Nature? If so, how does your hair like them?
