I have been using the A’kin Rosemary Shampoo for over a month now and wasn’t planning to review it initially because I had already written one on the A’kin Mandarin Shampoo. However, I just have to blog about this one because I realized that it has given my hair a natural highlight. Now, this was not what I bought it for; I got it simply because it was part of a 3-in-1 pack of A’kin stuff and rosemary is supposed to work for my oily hair. In fact, you can say the result was unexpected.
See an olive and it conjures up images of fresh salads with feta cheese and olives with a drizzle of olive oil and yummy pastas cooked with extra virgin olive oil! Enticing us gastronomically is just one of the many uses of olives; it is a much regarded beauty product since ancient times from Greece to Rome – sometimes called as “liquid gold” as olive oil has nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-aging properties such as squalene, beta-carotene, and vitamin E.
I realized that about this time last year, I had reviewed some of the skin care products under A’kin. So it’s kind of funny that a year later, I’m reviewing some of their products again, and this time on their hair and body range. I had first purchased a sort of 3-in-1 value pack that included an A’kin Mandarin Shampoo, an A’kin Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner and an A’kin Orange Blossom Body Wash. Then just earlier this week, I took advantage of the GSS to buy the A’kin Lavender Body Wash.
Since discovering that oily shampoo can make my hair oilier, I went on a hunt for a naturally formulated shampoo for normal hair. I decided to give BOD Premium Blend Shampoo a try since I like their BOD White Tea Cleansing Gel and this shampoo is described to be of salon quality and suitable for all hair types. Like the BOD cleanser, this shampoo is made with certified organic ingredients, essential oils and herbal extracts ; it is free of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), propylene glycol and parabens.
Besides the rosemary hair rinse that I’ve been using quite frequently, I’ve also been using the Phyto Phytopolleine Universal Elixir Scalp Stimulant about twice a week for about a month now. In fact, I’ve just finished the bottle I purchased during a sale at Watsons and am going to wait till the next sale to get my next bottle. So yes, I like this because I think it’s helping to purifying my scalp and possibly strengthening my hair.
