Maui Moisture Colour Protection + Sea Minerals Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of a shampoo and conditioner set from Maui Moisture that has been in my stash for a little while –  Colour Protection + Sea Minerals. I’ve been using it for around 6 weeks now, so I think it’s finally time for a review! [info in italics taken from the Maui Moisture website]

MauiMoisture SeaMinerals

Inspired by the ocean, dive deep into hydration with our Maui Moisture Colour Protection + Sea Minerals Shampoo [and Conditioner]. Infused with sea minerals, algae, and sea kelp, this blend, free from silicones, parabens, SLS, gluten, and vegan friendly, is sure to help hair colour stay as vibrant as your inner mermaid with a healthy-looking glow and moisturized strands.

MauiMoisture SeaMinerals

This shampoo and conditioner duo is great for my wavy, colour-treated hair. My colour seems to fade less quickly with using them – always a good thing. The shampoo cleans without stripping, and lathers really well for a sulfate-free formula. The conditioner does a great job to hydrate my hair without making it feel waxy or heavy. The scent is really nice, I can’t quite figure out what it smells like, but I like it – it is fresh smelling (and thankfully not over-scented).

Oneka Cedar & Sage Shampoo & Conditioner

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Cedar & Sage Shampoo & Conditioner from Oneka – they’re a Quebec (Canada) company that is organic and cruelty free.

Oneka Cedar & Sage Shampoo & Conditioner

Oneka’s all natural personal care products were created out of a respect for our water sources and the many organisms that help clean and purify it along its way. Rather than causing damage or polluting; Oneka products work WITH the elements of nature. We do this by using certified organic and wild harvested herbal extracts to nourish the hair and body without the use of sulphates, parabens, or synthetic fragrances.

Oneka Cedar & Sage Shampoo & Conditioner

Now onto the Cedar & Sage Shampoo & Conditioner:

Take a deep breath of the Boreal forest’s rich, earthy scent and enjoy our cedar and sage shampoo [and conditioner], specially formulated to help revitalize your scalp naturally. Your hair will absorb the cedar, known for its antibacterial properties, for a deep cleansing effect. The sage, known to help balance sebum production, blends with the hemlock, burdock, and nettle extracts to invigorate and stabilize. Go ahead – let the scent of the forest soothe your soul and amplify your senses.

Both the shampoo and conditioner smell amazing – I love the woody, earthy scent.

Recently my scalp has been very sensitive – probably due to the cold winter weather and  hat wearing. The shampoo makes my hair feel super clean and my scalp feels soothed and refreshed. The conditioner feels light and hydrating. My hair feels super soft after using this shampoo & conditioner duo, and my scalp is no longer feeling easily irritated.

And a lot of stores that carry Oneka have refill stations – so you can just pay for a refill instead of buying new bottles – so yay, less plastic waste to be recycled!

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another shampoo and conditioner duo from Attitude, this time I’ve been testing out the Volume & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve previously reviewed several from their haircare range – Nourishing & Strengthening, and  Color Protection. [info in italics taken from the Attitude website]

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Did you know soya is known to increase hair and skin thickness? Since hair is mostly composed of protein, soya can only help with its high concentration of proteins. Featuring cranberry extract, ATTITUDE’s Super leaves™ Volume & Shine Shampoo [and Conditioner] helps volumize hair, creating thick and shiny locks. You will love its aroma that reminds us of orange and cardamom. EWG Verified™, hypoallergenic and dermatologically-tested, our Volume & Shine Shampoo [and Conditioner] includes moringa seed extract, known for its antipollution properties. […] For beautiful hair, from root to end!

These are targeted for flat and fine hair – and as you know my hair is thick and wavy. So why did I buy them? Hat weather. Because it is full on winter weather here in Montreal, all of the hat wearing has turned my usually voluminous hair into an uncharacteristically  flat and dull mess.

The Shampoo lathers really well for a sulfate-free formula, and rinses well with no leftover residue feeling, while the Conditioner moisturizes my hair without making it feel weighed down. I was surprised that the conditioner worked so well for my hair since it is geared for fine hair, and most are too light for my hair type. I’ve been using both for several weeks now and my hair is a lot happier (more volume, and loads of shine), and less prone to flattening out – unless I put on a hat too soon after drying my hair. I’m sure that if I used this set in the summer time, my hair would be gigantic!

Attitude Super Leaves Volume & Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

As with the other Shampoo & Conditioner duos in the line, the scent is pleasant but not over-powering (YAY! as you all know I do not enjoy highly scented haircare products). It is supposed to smell like orange and cardamom. It isn’t a straightforward citrus scent, but it isn’t super spicy. I’m not sure how to explain it, but I think this one might be my favourite scent out of all the ones that I’ve tried thus far!

LaCoupe Moroccan Rose Volume Loving Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Moroccan Rose Volume Loving Shampoo & Conditioner from LaCoupe. I purchased the duo a few weeks ago, and have been testing them out since then. [info in italics taken from the packaging]

LaCoupe Moroccan Rose Volume Loving Shampoo & Conditioner

A lightweight silicone-free shampoo [and daily conditioner] infused with coconut water and aloe leaf juice, finely crafted with a natural blend of Moroccan Rose and volume boosting biotin and collagen to help promote fullness and body for fine and thinning hair. 

Free of: Silicones, Parabens, Sulfates, and Color Safe. And it states on the label that it is not tested on animals. *Please note that I could not find LaCoupe on any of the cruelty free lists that I check so I am not sure of them being 100% cruelty free – if I find out for sure, I will update*

LaCoupe Moroccan Rose Volume Loving Shampoo & Conditioner

I didn’t notice when I bought the duo that it was targeted for fine and thinning hair – as you probably know, my hair is fast growing, thick and wavy – so I was expecting a crazy amount of volume because of this.

The shampoo lathers really well for a sulfate free shampoo, and makes my hair feel really clean – no dulling residue. The conditioner is a little too light for my hair, but if I use a lot, it gets the job done! The conditioner would be awesome for fine hair, as it won’t weight your hair down.

LaCoupe Moroccan Rose Volume Loving Shampoo & Conditioner

The Moroccan Rose scent is heavenly – and really, the scent was the main reason why I wanted to try the shampoo and conditioner. And it was on sale!

Volume-wise, I did not notice much difference – which for me isn’t a bad thing as I have quite a lot of body in my hair anyways. But it did make my hair quite shiny and healthy looking / feeling. I like this shampoo & conditioner duo – I wish that they made a deep conditioning hair mask.

Attitude Super Leaves Color Protection Shampoo & Conditioner

I’ve previously reviewed the Attitude Super Leaves Nourishing & Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner (here) and really liked it. So I was curious to try the Color Protection formulation to see how it fared with my colour-treated, thick, frizz-prone,  wavy hair.

 

First off, the shampoo lathers really well despite being sulfate-free. My hair feels super clean without feeling stripped. Both the shampoo and conditioner have a mild berry scent that I like. The conditioner leaves my hair soft and manageable, and not weighed down. My hair colour has not been fading as quickly as usual since I started using this set. It is also not as dry at the ends as it normally would be even though I haven’t had my hair cut / trimmed since December!

Empties March 2018

Wednesday, April 4th – Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner

Friday, April 6th – Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gifts 2018

My birthday was on Friday, and most of the day involved me being curled on the couch with a blanket, my Ipad, Kindle and Netflix. I got hit with a terrible chest cold, so instead of going out for a birthday meal as originally planned, we ended up getting sushi to go from my fave little place.

All of the birthday wishes on various social media channels helped lift my spirits, so thank you!

We were supposed to go to Mr. A’s family’s place for a birthday brunch, but decided to postpone as I was still quite ill, and did not want to risk infecting them. So we will be celebrating with them next weekend instead. Surely by then I’ll no longer feel like death warmed over!

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner from Yarok that came in my March Petit Vour subscription box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

This stuff smells amazing due to the combination of hair nourishing oils (jojoba, apricot, and primrose oils) and essential oils (rosemary and litsea cubeba / may chang). The scent is lovely, and not at all over-powering.
