At Chic Darling, we are big fans of organic products. Replacing chemicals from our daily self-care routines with natural and organic products is something that we are all trying to do more of.
By nature, most shampoos can dry out hair, requiring loads of conditioner to replace that moisture. Some people, like Jessica Simpson, even swear by using shampoo very rarely to keep their tresses healthy.
I can’t personally go that long, because I have fine, blonde hair. That’s why I was so excited to pair up with John Masters Organics to bring you all a great giveaway! Plus, John Masters is a Canadian company. Of course we want to support them!
They kindly sent me some awesome, full-sized products to try out and give away to a lucky winner:
- Lavender Rosemary Shampoo
- Citrus & Neroli Detangler
- Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturizer
First of all, these products all smell amazing. They are light smelling, and you can just tell they are natural. They don’t smell fake or perfum-ey like some products out there.
Being that I have such fine hair, my hair can be a little sensitive. If I use something meant for moisturizing my hair, it ends up greasy; something for body, it ends up dry and brittle. The Lavender Rosemary Shampoo was a perfect balance, and left my hair super sleek. I was a bit concerned at first, because the shampoo doesn’t lather into suds as much as a different shampoo might, but it did it’s job just fine without the lather. My hair was left super clean.
I decided not to put on any conditioner and just use the detangler, so that the results of the John Masters product would not be altered by an outside conditioner. Surprisingly, the shampoo didn’t dry out my hair, and the Citrus & Neroli detangler helped a lot with the tangled mess that my hair defaults to when wet.
After blow-drying and styling as normal, my hair looked great. There was no frizz, which would usually be prevalent without conditioner, and it looked clean and shiny.
I don’t know if you guys know this, but fine, blonde hair tends to be flat and lifeless. It rarely has a lot of body, unless you force body into it. So I was pretty happy to have the texturizer to try out.
After my normal styling, I used a bit of the texturizer (about the size of a dime, though if you have heavier hair you might use more) and distributed it through my dry hair and played with it a bit. It definitely gave my hair some extra texture, without leaving it greasy (which is difficult for a texturizer in my hair).
Bonus: my boyfriend noticed how good my hair smelled, and my colleague told me I was having a “good hair day” that first day.
Clearly, we are thrilled to give John Masters our CD Stamp of Approval.
