It’s always a struggle finding a shampoo that I love, most shampoos end up leaving my hair stripped and a tangled mess.
Now this shampoo I do love…
the scent is amazing… citrusy and uplifting. The consistency is creamy and lathers well. I can finger detangle my hair while washing it and it leaves my hair and scalp clean without feeling dry and stripped. I followed up with my regular conditioner.

A few days after I unravelled my twists, I was in awe! My hair was beautifully defined, moisturised, soft and shiny.
I also find that I don’t get product build up even when I reapply to moisturise my hair. I’m really impressed with this product, it has given me consistent results every time I use it so it’s going into my staples collection.

I love hair oils and this one is definitely going to be a staple. The consistency is really light which is great as I don’t like my hair weighed down.
It smells amazing too, I like that they have used the same citrus essential oil blend. The pump bottle is great as it gives me better control and makes application easy.
I apply to my hair after I use SMOOTH to help lock in moisture, reduce frizz and add shine. My hair looks and feels so much healthier as it’s able to retain moisture.
I’m really impressed with these products, they also work well on my kids hair. My hair loves them, the results are amazing. My hair stays moisturised for days!
