I enjoy Winter, truly; polar vortexes, however, not so much.
Trudging through the Toronto snow this year, in addition to “OMG, I’m going to get salt stains all over my gorgeous boots!”, the concern about my hair was just as great.
The weather can really mess with your style, so when we received an email to review LaCoupe’s new orgnx line that forcibly invigorates your hair with the likes of coconut and macadamia oil, I was anxious to slather it on my scalp.
I used a loonie-sized squirt for the first shampoo, making sure to massage it into my scalp to attach to and lift the dirt. Not a lot of lather, but that’s ok. I rinsed and then used a quarter-sized squirt which provided a significant lather, but nothing that made me look like a frosted cupcake head.
Using certified organic coconut and macadamia nut oils as the base of the shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioning treatment, all products are formulated Gluten free, which is ideal for those with sensitivities. It’s a fab combination as coconut oil has been known to restore the hair’s health, softness and shine, provide rejuvenating properties to the hair’s cuticle and scalp (because it’s never too early to start moisturizing), relieve dry, flaky skin and help stimulate the hair’s growth.
The rich, creamy texture and amazing scent also provides a relaxing and aromatic shower experience. After washing, you can still smell the scent, which reminds me of the butterscotch Life Savers candy that my mom keeps in her purse.
Not one to blow dry and style my hair, I left it to air-dry. The smell has stuck around and my hair feels very soft and light. Most importantly, the frizz is at a minimum, even without any type of taming product (which is good because the less you put on your hair, the better).
Available at Shopper’s Drug Mart, the price point for the shampoo & conditioner are $9.99 a piece. Not bad when you consider the “natural-ness” of the product (colour safe, paraben and sulfate-free), and, like with all fancy-pants shampoos, just a little will get you a long way.
