At what point to product manufacturers think it was a good idea to replace natural ingredients with man-made ingredients that people can’t even pronounce, let alone know what purpose they serve.
Take a look at your current shampoo for example. What is it made of? Can you recognize any of those ingredients and what they are need for? Chances are you can’t. I know that I can’t.
I often think that people had it better decades ago. Most products were made out of natural ingredients. They were not stuffed with synthetic, man-made, “fake” ingredients that probably serve to give the product more “fluff” then an actual purpose.
I’m glad that more and more companies are realizing that natural ingredients ARE the better option. More and more companies are making their products out of less fake ingredients and more of the real stuff. Sadly we still have a very long way to go before all companies see things the same way.
Sometimes people think that products made with more natural ingredients are not as effective as the mass produced kind. That is not true. Often the more natural products work so much better. Take for example Maple Holistics. Maple Holistic makes beauty products out of natural ingredients that are better for as well as our environment. But how do they compare to their phony, mass produced “cousins?”
I received to review a few hair care products from Maple Holistics.
Argan shampoo introduces the ultimate haircare formula that provides maximum benefits with six of the most effective oils for hair and scalp health. This incredible synergy offers an abundance of valuable therapeutic effects. Exceptional and revolutionary, Argan shampoo is the perfect choice for those with general scalp types looking to enhance their hair and scalp health.
Decent shampoo. Washes well and rinses out completely. I have not tried this on it’s own because I have thick, course hair and I NEED to follow up with a conditioner or else I’ll never get a comb through my hair. I’ve always used this together with the Maple Holistics Argan Conditioner.
Years of research have been dedicated to formulating a blend of conditioning agents which can maximize smooth hairness, have no potentially harmful additives, and be effective for all hair types. Argan Conditioner takes the end result to a new level – with increased Argan Oil quantities and a pallet of natural hair nourishing ingredients, culminating optimal hair health can now be achieved like never before! For those sensitive to scents, Argan Conditioner contains no aroma with its pure and well-balanced formulation. With the homeopathic solution, taking care of your hair has never been easier.
I’m on the fence with this conditioner. I always used it with the Maple Holistics Argan Shampoo. I didn’t try it with other shampoos.
I don’t think it necessarily moisturized my hair. I do know that it seemed to change the texture of my hair. My hair seemed “thicker,” for lack of a better description. It wasn’t REALLY thicker, it just felt that way (it didn’t look thicker).
The conditioner rinses out well enough. I played around with the amount to find what was right for my hair. I used too much at times and too little. I finally found a “happy medium.”
I didn’t really notice much of a difference in my hair compared to similar shampoos/conditioners, however I would continue to purchase it because I like the ingredients (Argan, Jojoba, Pomegranate, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Sea Buckthorn, Hibiscus, Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Silk Protein…). Other shampoos and conditioners I use are made up mostly of man-made synthetic ingredients.
Silk 18 Natural Conditioner
Years of research have been dedicated to formulating a blend of conditioning agents which can maximize smooth hairness, have no potentially harmful additives, and be effective for all hair types. Silk18 Conditioner is the end result – an all-in-one conditioner which contains a perfectly balanced synergy of nature’s most efficient conditioning ingredients to maximize moisture retention capacity for silky, flowing hair.
This is great conditioner. I used this with a variety of shampoos and regardless of what shampoo I used this conditioner left my hair feeling silky and soft.
Silk 18 helped to tame my frizzies and made my hair look and feel healthy and shiny (not straw-like).
I have long, thick, course hair. I love that this conditioner was able to make hair like mind look and feel so good. Even my husband found himself running is fingers through my hair when we sat and watched TV together. He joked that is was like petting the cat (he meant that in a good way – he loves our cats).
I found that I didn’t need any extra hair product after I used this conditioner (leave in, detangler…). The Silk 18 Conditioner did it all.
Even my teenager daughter likes this conditioner. I find her using it every time she washes her hair. I think I need to pick up a bottle just for her.
Keep in mind that everyone’s hair is different so what works for one person might not work for another. These are just my own personal experiences with the products.
