So, of course I decided to try them, but as they are not cheap (they are drugstore products, yeah, but I think they are $10USD/ $4.990 Pesos each aprox) and I still had quite a bit of another shampoo/conditioner I was using at the time so I tought I’d try them next month… then, next thing you know my boyfriend’s mom got them for me (<3 yayyy) and I am now able to review them for you :D.

Says it is “An exclusive blend of antioxidant rich coconut oil along with lush keratin proteins to strengthen and soften the hair, while avocado oil and cocoa butter smooth the cuticle for straight, strong tresses, adding a brilliant glow and luminescent shine“
Is not 100% natural, but it doesn’t contain sulfates or sodium chloride (which are pretty harsh for your hair) and is not full of bad stuff either.
So, I’ve tryed both, the shampoo & conditioner for about 3 weeks now. My hair is fine, straight-ish and not badly damaged with tendency to get oily pretty fast. The first time I used the shampoo and conditioner I loved the smell (which lingers for a while) and the consistency (is a lot thicker than others). I was worried it would not lather since some all-natural products tend not to lather very well being a pain in the you know what, but it lathers nicely so you don’t have to use a massive quantity of product.
Till now it hasn’t strengthen my hair as it claims, but it does leave it extremily clean, soft and shiny. My hair actually lasts clean for a longer time and -i like to say that- it gets dirty “with dignity” so i’m very happy with the results.
Now, I bought this products pimarely cause they are sulfate, silicone and parabens free and because I heard they were really good obviously -which they are- but I didn’t bought it because of it’s supposed straightening qualities, but, what do you know, they are real. My hair ends straight as hell without heat! Which is cool if you want straight hair and not so good if you like -and lack- volume (like me).
