What is it supposed to DO?
Formulated with an actives complex (Shea and ginger) enriched with essential oils of rosemary, citrus, sandalwood, and patchouli, this shampoo is ideal for dry, damaged hair, which lacks tonus. Thanks to its coconut extract added to its essential oil complex, it provides a fresh smell that makes your shampoo a pure moment of pleasure and relaxation. The slight touch of Shea gives softness and shine to your hair. Suitable to every kind of hair.
How important is scent?
Great Light Ginger Scent, simple and clean, a little spicy. Scent faded when drying hair so there was not a conflict with your chosen scent which we love when getting ready for the day.
How does the product feel when you use it?
First lather is light but there, this is due to the organic origins, the second was thicker and you could feel it, worked great. Nice honey texture. We never needed to load up which was congruent with it being a professional product.
How does the packaging look and hold up?
The Packaging is cool. Very European, clean and a very round large base which is great for the shower as it is almost impossible to knock over. Strong Cap that opens and closes easily. Great to display in a Salon, and you feel great bringing it home.
We put it through the paces!
We loved this product. The hair came out very natural and clean without ANY residue. It seemed to close the cuticle down well and was very simple to dry into a sleek natural style. Over several days of washing we 'felt' like the hair was in better condition.
Peter Anthony and his friends share tricks of the trade!
After Speaking with Ingeborg, owner of House for Hair in Thornwood NY she shared with us some of her passion for the product. Her cleints love that the PURE line of Hairgum "does not leave there hair greasy as there is no deposit left behind." We loved that as well and both seemd to agree that this is the perfect addition to a collection.
Products you will need to complete the experience
The two products that we think go great with this shampoo are the PURE Repairing Mask conditioner and the Shea Butter Serum. (we reviewed them as well). This is certainly a line that we believe will work best within itself so we recommend keeping the products together (shampoo and conditioner)
Peter Anthony shares his last thoughts on the product
I loved a lot of things about the product and we tested it on normal and fine hair with great results. It has what I would expect from a professional line. It works and the hair looks great. It is not about BIG or STYLED. This is for people who are looking for natural, healthy, shiny, sexy hair that feels GREAT to the touch. How we would position in our own collection is a switch off, this is when you want to relax yourself and your hair and simply feel clean and healthy.
