I loved the idea of this since it's extremely low waste, but it just does not work!
The end product after adding the recommended amount of water is very liquidy and does not do a good job of conditioning my hair. After a shower using this, my hair felt very dry and tangled. I bought all of the 3 different scent options because I thought I'd love them, so how I'm just trying to use them up to be done with them. I've been using this as a leave in conditioner just to use it up which seems to be doing pretty well in that capacity.
As a stand alone it's a definite NO, but as a leave in, it works.
I would not purchase again, I'm sticking with the bars now.
This is exactly what I was looking for! The conditioner powder/paste mix is perfect in every way. Comes in a zero -plastic paper zip bag, fun to make, leaves my hair silky smooth, reasonably priced for the quality. I only wish it’d come in a bulk size or they can restock. So glad I found this. Will repurchase!
This conditioner works really well! I had tried conditioner bars and I just wasn't a fan. This stuff comes out to a great consistency and does a good job. I added my own mix of essential oils to the unscented packet for my own scent. When my current batch is out I will buy the bulk packet to keep using this product with minimal waste!
These granules were very moist, almost a clay-like substance. Given the package is very thin, it was challenging to get out. I had to get some tweezers - I never did get it all out. Then I couldn't pour them into my bottle or even use a funnel because the clumps were too big. Once the water was added, the consistency was OK, but I don't feel like it conditioned my hair very well at all. I really really wanted to love this, but I just didn't.
I purchased a trial size of the citrus scent, but I would not recommend that scent. The scent does not linger, but it does smell "off" while using the shampoo. I mixed the packet with (an unknown amount of) water in a 3 fl. oz. travel bottle (emptied packet into bottle, added water to under 3 fl. oz. (aiming for 2 fl. oz.), shook the bottle). The consistency of the product is not very viscous (more liquid-y) and kind of slippery (similar to the Fresh soy face cleanser). Quite a bit of product must be used (I usually use about the size of a grape, but for this product I needed multiple grapes) to lather the product and get a clean hair feeling. I used it in combination with Olaplex no. 5 conditioner. My hair felt soft, clean and nice after air drying. What I like about this product is that I can prepare shampoo based on my use/demand instead of purchasing a giant bottle that will take me years to go through. ***I may have over diluted the product.
I got the trial size as I was curious and it felt really harsh on my hair. Tried to use all of it but noticed my hair was consistently dry and felt brittle after use so rinsed the rest down the drain.
