This post is for my long haired friends. I've discovered a new shampoo that I really really like. For me, that rarely happens. My favorite poo and conditioner is still Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose (the conditioner is the best and I love the scent), but while at Whole Foods about a month ago I started browsing and decided to try something new - just for a change. I actually like having two products to switch back and forth with since it seems to keep both of them on their toes y'know. Whole Foods has their own brand, "365", and they had several different types and scents. I settled on the "lavender blend" for dry and normal hair. They were each around $3.00! I've tried it four times since then and my hair loves it. I love it. It feels different from the Honeysuckle Rose... makes my hair heavier and not quite so soft - and feels a bit thicker, I think, and I love the way it makes it feel and "hang" when it's down. I give 'em a thumbs up for price, scent and they way my hair reacts to it. The ingredients are okay - not as nice as the AO - though the only ingredient I found controversial is the sodium laureth sufate, which most of us are familar with. Here they are, for those interested:
365 Shampoo for dry and normal hair "lavender blend": water, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium cocoamphacetate, wheat germ amidopropyl, betaine, sodium chloride, benzyl alcohol, glycerine, citric acid, dehydroacetic acid, burdock root extract, panthenol, vitamin E, hydrolyzed soy protein, rosemary, lavender, tangerine
365 "Revitalisant" Conditioner "lavender blend': water, cetearyl alcohol, PEGE-40 castor oil, stearalkonium chloride, glycerly stearate, benzyl alcohol, glycerin, dehydroacetic acid, sodium citrate panthenol, matricaria flower extract, vitamin E, aloe, rosemary, lavender, tangertine
