I recently tried a sample of the Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Shampoo and the Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Conditioner. There are several things that I like about the products and one big thing that I don’t.
I have color treated hair so I do like that both products are non-staining and safe for all hair, natural or dyed. The scent is nice, light and citrusy, and not overpowering at all.
This is a purifying shampoo and conditioner that uses a combination of charcoal (derived from coconut shells), lemon and grapefruit oils that is designed to cleanse, clarify and eliminate impurities from your hair and scalp. I like that it’s does that but is gentle enough for daily use and is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors.
After all that, what is there not to like?
Glad you asked! I don’t like how my hair feels after using the shampoo. It left it feeling really dry and very tangly. Like super tangly. I’m assuming that it is because the shampoo did it’s job of purifying and clarifying my hair.
I of course thought that the conditioner would correct that but it didn’t help. I did leave it on for several minutes to see if that would help. Good thing that I had my wet brush (that thing is a lifesaver!) to detangle my hair because it felt like a hot mess back there.
