Just a quick post on one of my new staples, the Creme of Nature Detangling Shampoo. I don’t usually go crazy for shampoos and as a result, when I find one that is not too drying, I stick to it. However, today I tried the old Creme of Nature Shampoo and absolutely loved it. I have been using the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Sulfate free Shampoo but let me tell you, the old formula is way better than the new one. I rarely ever trust the “promises” listed on a product when purchasing it, I prefer to look at the ingredients and let that be my deciding factor. So when I first bought the new CON shampoo I mainly bought it because it was sulfate free. It did say that it was supposed to add shine while detangling your hair and neither of this proved true. It did however, do a great job of cleansing my hair without drying it out.
Now onto the old CON detangling shampoo which is also sulfate free and promises to cleanse, condition and detangle. I am happy to announce that besides the conditioning bit (just because I love my conditioner but felt like I could of done without it after using this shampoo), it did cleanse and detangle my hair in a way I did not expect. I usually do my hair in sections and apply shampoo to my scalp only. After reading the instructions on the bottle, I decided to not only shampoo my scalp but to run a bit of the shampoo through my hair (just for the fun of it). While doing this I was instantly surprised at the ease with which my fingers raked through my hair and yes I did detangle my hair without applying conditioner.
If you have never tried this shampoo, I highly recommend that you do :). I will also be adding it to my list of staple products instead of the Argan Oil formula. I’m totally smitten lol. For the first time since going natural, I did the whole lather, rinse, repeat process and thoroughly enjoyed it. Imagine that, I would be giving a major side eye to anyone telling me to lather, rinse and repeat before this experience.
I should mention that the smell is not as great as the new formula. It smells more like an herbal rinse and kind of reminds me of an old English powder my granny used back in the days. But hey it does what it says it was suppose to and that works for me. It is also not all natural, so if you don’t use parabens etc. then this is not the shampoo for you.
Until next time, have a great Saturday night. I know I will!
P.S. What are some of your favorite shampoos and shampooing experiences?
