After searching high and low for an organic/natural shampoo that doesn’t break the bank and doesn’t compromise on the content in the ingredient list, I settled for the Logona Essential Nettle Care Shampoo and have been using it for a while now. I used to use John Masters’ shampoo but as much as I loved it, I wanted something cheaper that works as well. Logona’s shampoo cost the same price but I get almost double the quantity in the bottle, and because the shampoo is shared between my husband and me, I was sold. And after using it for quite some time now, I’d have to admit it’s not too bad really.
A reader’s comment on my entry about cleaning hair brushes last week got me thinking about the different types of hair brushes available and the difference among them. To be frank, I have never thought much about hair brushes and am not exactly very knowledgeable or adventurous with trying new ones. But after doing some research, I found that there are indeed hair brushes that are designed for specific hair types and today, we’ll take a look at some of these hair brushes.
My hair has been long for as far as I can remember. And because of that, I prefer using hair brushes to combs as they remove tangles without tugging my hair too much. Now, this might sound really disgusting to you but I have only begun cleaning my hair brushes a couple of years ago. I didn’t clean them previously not because I am a disgusting and unhygienic woman, but because I had no idea we were supposed to clean them. So I’ve always just replaced my hair brushes with new ones whenever they looked old and dirty.
This is one of those brands that I’ve avoided purchasing for the longest time because of the name. Why? Because I’m always suspicious of brands that call themselves Organic, Organics, or anything that sounds close. Come on now, there is not one organic ingredient in the product and this is a typical example of greenwashing. So why did I purchase this then? Well, I’ve had people coming to tell me that this is a good organic shampoo and I feel that some clarifications is required. At S$12.90 after sale, I thought I’ll give it a go just to see if it lives up to its claims, given that I’ve already taken the Organix Hydrating Teatree Mint for a couple of washes last year and it was not bad in terms of performance.
I noticed a collection of unused shampoos and conditioners hidden in a box while clearing some items in my room recently. They were part of a review project I worked on last year and I never got round to finishing them up, mostly because they either do not suit me so well or because I’ve moved on to try other things. Anyway, of the lot, the Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic set is most interesting as it is made with non-toxic chemistry, and its unique selling point is being gluten free. And boy, after a year, they’re still usable!
