Ok… so i’m just updating you on some products that i came across in my search for a shampoo and a deep conditioner that is all natural, sls, and silicone free.
The first is a brand called Ikove. They are “natural and organic hair care products using only the best ingredients direct from the Amazon. These hair care products are certified to be at least 95% organic”. (Their own statement).
Their shampoos are “pH-balanced and formulated with mild plant-based cleansers to thoroughly clean the hair and scalp without irritation.” (Their own statement).
They have a few different shampoos and i ordered the Amazonian avocado and acerola shampoo Nourishing for damaged and treated hair.
Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis leaf Extract*, Decyl Glucoside, Malphigia Glabra (Acerola) Fruit Extract*, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil*, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum.
And the conditioner i ordered was the Amazonian avocado and babaçu conditioner Nourishing for dry and very dry hair.
Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*, Malphigia Glabra (Acerola) Fruit Extract*, Orbignya Oleífera (Babaçu) Seed Oil*, Cetyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Olivate, Persea Gratíssima (Avocado) Oil, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Citrus Aurantium Dulcius (Orange) Oil*, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate.
I get really excited when i see Aloe Vera in the top 5 ingredients because they are the ones that really count. And in this case it’s the SECOND ingredient on the list. I am aware it’s an extract but it will still benefit the hair greatly. The Cetyl alcohol, Sorbitan Olivate and Cetearyl Olivate are really the ‘body’ of the conditioner and everything else hangs on those ingredients. I’m hoping my hair will take to it because the ingredient list on both products sounds great so fingers crossed.
Their products are very reasonably priced at around £6.12 per bottle of 250ml shampoo or conditioner. But beware because i found the same products on another website that sold all brands of shampoos and conditioners at around £8.50 and £11.99 respectively. So i’ve put the link to original website that i bought the products from.
Here’s the link for their products
The second brand is called ‘Crown Pride Naturals’ and is a line formulated especially for naturally curly hair. I was quite excited when i came across this range as it’s a COMPLETE curly hair care range including shampoos (normal and alternative), conditioners (including protein and Hair Masks), Oils, Whipped butters and soufflé’s, Buttercream and curl crème. These products, especially the last two, are quite hard to find here in the UK and all for very reasonable prices.
