I tried no poo and it was a failure, for me. I tried a raw made from plant botanicals brand in an effort to get the strong shiny hair I seek. While the raw products are excellent products, that my family continues to use and I continue to recommend and support, it wasn’t right for my hair. So I moved on and lo and behold, just like in a relationship, the next one to come along in the hair diaries natural hair care saga was The One!
The one turned out to be from Just Natural Hair and Skincare. Just Natural products are sulfate, paraben, alcohol, chemical, and gluten free. Made from non GMO, vegan, natural and organic ingredients that are not tested on animals. Just Natural uses the “purest plant oils, butters, botanical extracts and essentials from the best that nature has to offer.” Their products are effective and natural, just what I was looking for. Plus the bottles of shampoo and conditioner I purchased 21 weeks ago and have used ever since still haven’t run out!
Having color treated hair I went with the Color Care Natural Shampoo and the Color Care Natural Conditioner. The shampoo is sulfate-free, salt-free, paraben-free and silicone-free to protect and preserve your hair color longer while gently cleansing the hair with oils, that also result in shiny non-greasy hair. The conditioner helps to give softness to the hair with seed oils and butters but also nourishes the hair so it is stronger and manageable without build-up. The claims are all true. My hair is shiny and healthy while the color in my hair sticks around. Which isn’t an easy task as I have tough color to maintain with my purple streak and the red tones for the rest of my hair. My stylist, who often has pink hair herself, was amazed at how vibrant the color in my hair stays between colorings once I started using this product. The added bonus of only washing my hair 3 times a week now is an excellent time saver too.
I tried the Natural Shine Polish too that uses lots of natural oils such as Meadowfoam, Olive, Daikon, Jojoba, and Fennel Seed oils to tame frizz, repair damage, restore moisture, and add shine. A little shine polish goes a long way. And I mean a little teeny bit. Otherwise I find my hair is weighed down and looks a little greasy. But a little bit is magic on those days between washes when I need a little extra something.
I also grabbed the Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, because why not? I love this stuff! It cleanses my skin gently without leaving it dry. Plus it has a gentle fresh and clean scent from the Orange Blossom, Tangerine and Bergamot oils.
Just Natural also has chemical free products for kids hair and kids body washes. There are products for people with every hair type imaginable – dry, extremely dry, oily, itchy, thin, color treated, relaxed, pre-relaxed, hair loss, mens hair. etc. They also carry skin products such as butters, creams, lotions, anti-aging potions, and so much more. The product line is massive but everything I’ve tried so far has been beyond great. I look forward to ordering something new each time I place an order because I want to try it all.
Hair diaries success at last!
