When it comes to planning a good hair routine, it’s very important to find the right product that’s specific to your hair type and caters to your hair concerns.
Is your hair dry or frizzy? fine and thin? fortunately these days there is a wide range of natural and organic hair care products that are non-toxic and kind to your hair.
If you’re looking for an all natural hair care, or just transitioning into natural beauty products, I would recommend you start with a hair product that’s gentle just so you can analyze your hair and see how its really like without the toxic chemicals from common and conventional hair care products.
this process is more of a hair detox if you will. I was recently sent a “Grown Alchemist” Anti-Frizz – haircare twin set to review and give my feedback on. I must say I was quite excited as I always wanted to try this brand out, I’ve heard mostly good reviews of this brand and was glad I could get to try out and review.
For a little background on my hair condition, I have jet black, curly frizzy hair that’s mostly dry and frizzy due to the weather and styling. The slightest hint of humidity in the weather can cause catastrophic conditions to my hair. Knowing all this you can imagine how happy I was to get products especially catering to my frizzy hair issues!

What honestly drew me to the brand was their fantastically minimal yet luxurious branding and packaging. Not only is everything botanically based. The subtle monochromatic packaging of Grown Alchemist definitely adds an elegant touch to their branding.

Both the shampoo and conditioner are mild enough for everyday use. The texture of the shampoo tends to have a thin clear gelish consistency, as opposed to the creamy texture of conventional shampoos, the gelish consistency could be because of no added chemicals or thickening agents.
The shampoo has no foamy suds, though I understand the fact that chemical-free shampoos do not lather up, this is one thing I’m not quite comfortable with this, as I’m not quite sure if the hair is clean enough and had to shampoo twice due to this, the conditioner has a thin creamy consistency, that spreads well on the scalp.
The fragrance was, unfortunately, a downside for me, it’s hard to describe the actual scent. it’s more like a subtle chemical scent, though the product has no toxic or harsh chemicals. Its ironic for some reason the scent to me seemed as though the product’s come from a lab, I hope you understand what I mean by this.
Now before using these products, I made sure that I did not use any sort of hair masks or hair serums when using this shampoo and conditioner just so I could get to test the product better and give my honest feedback.
Well unfortunately for me the shampoo did not help with my frizz, the hair is soft and not harshly chemicalized but not what I expected. I had really high expectations for this product, maybe the product would work best for less frizzy hair than mine, but sadly my hair is still dry and frizzy and it’s been more than a week I’ve been using these products.
Now I’m not sure with the other shampoos, I heard good reviews about the nourishing shampoo and detox, maybe they’re better. that I’ll only know once I get to test them, but for now though the branding and the quality of the product are amazing, result wise this didn’t do too well with my hair.
I hope you find this review useful, this was an honest opinion by me. the product may work differently for different hair types. Have you tried this product? let me know your thoughts or give us your feedback.
