Ok, about two months ago, I decided I had had enough of tangly, knotted, damaged, dry hair. I have really fine hair, so I’m forced to wash my hair every day, and my hair felt overworked and dry! I started to research the ingredients in my store-bought Biolage conditioner online, and I was pretty disturbed/concerned with what I found. All of these chemicals were actually making my hair more damaged, more dry, and less clean.
When you think about it, shampoo cleans your hair, yes, but also completely strips your hair of natural oils that it needs to stay healthy and look beautiful. So, to counteract this damage, we ladies use conditioner, which literally puts back all of the moisture and oils that we just ripped away while shampooing. The whole process seemed a little twisted to me, and I decided to try out a more holistic approach (baby steps) and try out an all-natural conditioner. [PSST – keep reading for a promo code, too!]
I shopped around online, and found Silk18 by Maple Holistics on Amazon. The reviews were absolutely stellar; nearly every reviewer had a positive experience with the conditioner and was more than pleasantly surprised with the results. I ordered, and although I absolutely fell in love with this product the first time I used it, I wanted to use it for a few more weeks before sharing it on the blog to make sure it was still working amazingly.
I’m here to tell you that IT IS! I LOVE this conditioner, I swear I may never use another. Here’s why:
- It’s all natural: This is a given. There’s no ingredients that I can’t pronounce, and it makes me happy that I’m using at least one product on my body that I trust.
- It smells INCREDIBLE: I was nervous about the smell, since there’s no added fragrances, but it smells so light, airy, and fresh, I love it!
- It detangles my hair! Seriously!: I only use a dime-sized amount of this stuff, but I don’t even need any detangling product after my shower. It makes it silky soft and smooth.
- It’s made in the USA & not tested on animals: Both of these are huge pluses for me. Sold.
As an added bonus, I reached out to the company to share my excitement about their product and let them know I was planning to blog about it, and they gave me a promo code for a whopping 30% off of the Amazon price for my readers! Just type in promo code MAPLEH30 at check out. That means you can order this stuff for only $9.29 plus free Prime shipping!
Let me know if you love this holistic approach to hair care as much as I do :)
