In all my time of blogging, I haven’t once reviewed a shampoo and conditioner.
Yea I know, I’ve reviewed dry shampoos but not an actual shampoo and conditioner.
Why you ask?
Because it’s hard to find a good natural shampoo/conditioner, no matter
what brands I’ve tried, perhaps I’m picky? maybe. but either way, I’m quite excited to review Palmer’s Shampoo and conditioner which I received been part of Palmer’s ambassador program.
I was ecstatic upon receiving the shampoo, not only is the shampoo all natural, but the key highlight ingredient is the raw “Shea Butter”!
A little Teaser I made for Palmer’s
Before I begin with the review, let’s get to know more about Palmer’s raw “Shea Butter” (for those of you who want to get straight to the review you can skip this part
and move on to the review below.)
Intro to Shea Butter
The raw ingredient is ethically sourced in Burkina Faso Africa, where the supplier in the region partnering with the “Woman’s Cooperative”, where they mainly control the
quality and supply of the ingredient, Shea butter can only be found in Africa, in Sudan and Sahel.
This wild tree can measure up to 20 meters tall and reach its maximum production after 35 years! that’s a pretty long time! Each tree produces an average of 15 to 20 kg
of fruit (I.e 3 to 4 kgs of kernels) per year.
Benefits of Shea Butter
- Shea butter’s ability to soften frizzy hair and make it more manageable & has been long exploited by people of its native land.
- Prevents the hair from drying out and becoming brittle
- Seals in the moisture by coating each strand of hair in a thin, non-greasy layer of fat.
- Shea butter helps relieve many scalp problems such as dandruff and dry scalp
- Can protect your hair from UV rays and environmental pollutants
The first thing to note is the packaging, I love the recyclable plastic bottle and the detailed information of the product, Both the shampoo and conditioner have an amazing fragrance. The shampoo to me smells like butter scotch and the conditioner like baby powder, Just love both the smell!
When using the shampoo, it’s low on shampoo suds, but you aren’t going to get a full head of bubbles like sulfate-based shampoos. I think it cleans very well despite
being low on the suds. It rinses clean and leaves my hair feeling clean without being stripped. That is the key benefit of a sulfate-free shampoo, it replenishes
moisture and enhances your natural shine.
After applying the shampoo, I applied the conditioner. The conditioner has a creamy consistency and distributes well through my hair. Some conditioners (especially natural, silicone-free ones) seem to just sink into my hair before I can really distribute it,
but I do not have that problem with this one. This conditioner is nourishing, and sulfate free that instantly helps detangle and soften my hair while also controlling my
frizzy hard to manage hair.
I’ve been using this duo for more than a week now, and I must say I am overall quite impressed! This product has left my hair feeling moisturized without feeling greasy. And I can tell you confidently my hair feels much healthier, shinier and stronger than what it used to be.
The other day, hubby complimented how soft my hair was and how amazing my hair smelt! 😉 Well, I guess the Palmers duo is definitely proving their point!
