I've been wanting to start using more natural products in my skin and hair care routines lately, so I joined the My Pure blogging panel. I received my first parcel a few weeks ago. First up to be reviewed is the Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner from Australian brand, A'kin. To see what I thought, keep on reading :)
A'kin say: Certified organic lavender flower extract combined with cold pressed Australian jojoba provides light conditioning and natural lustre whilst improving the vigour of your hair and scalp. Your hair will have body, be silky soft, shiny and manageable. All A'kin products are free from sulfates, ethoxylates, parabens, propylene glycol, petrochemical cleansers, silicones, phthalates, DEA & artificial colours. A'kin products are ingredient rich, vegan, 100% natural botanical aromatherapy & formulated without animal ingredients or animal testing.
I say: I've been in search of a good conditioner for an absolute age, so I was pretty pleased when this arrived. I hate using heavy conditioners on my hair as they just weigh it down and don't really do anything for me. I was intrigued how a natural conditioner would compare against the usual high street brands. I've been using this every other day for a few weeks now and I have to say I quite like it. It smells nice and does exactly what it says on the bottle. It did make my hair a bit more knotted to start with, but this is explained on the website.
A'kin say: For normal, fine and oily hair. After using A'kin shampoo, apply A'kin Jojoba & Lavender Light Conditioner massaging gently into the scalp and hair. For oily hair, use on the ends of the hair only. Rinse thoroughly. Style as usual.
I say: I'd class my hair as normal, so this was right up my street. I only ever use conditioner on the ends of my hair. I leave it for a minute or two, then rinse, and either dry or leave it to dry naturally. My hair was left soft and silky. A good addition to your bathroom if you are especially after vegan and/or natural products :)
