Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Shampoo
Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Shampoo is recommended for the almost immediate effect of curbing hair loss that I experience.
I also like that it softens hair without the need for conditioner.
However, this may work against those who have little hair as their hair might go too soft and limp.
Note : There was a period in 2019 when this shampoo was discontinued. Then in 2020, Art Naturals released again. We are not sure if it’s an improved formula but we haven’t tried since this ‘new edition’ and so can’t comment on it efficacy.
Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Shampoo
My husband read about the Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Shampoo (for hair loss) and wondered if he should try it, as he was bent on moving towards SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)-free shampoo/products.
In addition to discovering about the potentially harmful effects of products containing SLS, hubby had a ‘hands-on’ experience of bad reaction to using a toothpaste with SLS. His lips and tongue became red and sore after using a particular brand (I shall not name it here) toothpaste.
Although to this date, there’s no proven link of SLS to cancer, it’s advisable to try stay away from products with this ingredient (especially with the controversies surrounding its use).
Art Naturals Shampoo Reviews
As we found, online reviews on Art Naturals Argan Oil shampoo for hair loss were generally favorable. The majority of users claim that the shampoo not only help reduce hair loss but also made their hair feels softer.
But you know, nothing beats trying it for yourself.
So we ordered the shampoo online and received it about a week later.
I don’t know whether to be pleased or shocked as I read the extremely long list of ingredients used in this shampoo (stated in the bottle label).
But I thought that since blends of argan oil, aloe vera, white willow bark, burdock root, rosemary and thyme are included, these are natural ingredients that should be alright for the hair (and skin).
Hubby was the first to try it and after three washes, he could see a considerable reduction in his hair going down the sink hole (from about the usual 18-20 strands to less than 10).
I was using Ultrax Labs Hair Surge shampoo at the time when hubby pested me to try, especially that he had experienced positive results himself.
He also reminded me about the possible effects of using shampoo with SLS over time (despite the fact that I had not experienced any severe skin reaction while using Ultrax Labs shampoo). In fact, I like Ultrax Labs shampoo although it doesn’t lather as easily as I would like it to be.
So a few days ago (in February 2017), I washed my hair with the Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil shampoo, without having any high expectations (I guess because I was just ready to settle for Ultrax Labs shampoo as my ultimate shampoo of choice).
But let me reiterate – there’s nothing like trying a product yourself! These are what I experience :
- Firstly, the Art Naturals shampoo lathers much easier in comparison to Ultrax Labs shampoo, although it doesn’t contain SLS (an ingredient that is said to help with lathering).
- Secondly, it does make my hair smooth and very easy to comb/manage without me having to use any conditioner.
- It does reduce the hair loss although I can’t say that it stimulates hair growth. I might be able to see if this shampoo really works to regrow hair after more subsequent washes.
Honestly, I have mostly good things to say about Art Naturals Shampoo and I must say I’d give it a higher rating than Ultrax Labs Hair Surge shampoo.
The only ‘complaint’ about this shampoo is what hubby experiences.
As the shampoo softens the texture of hair (I believe due to its botanical oils and extracts), hubby’s hair becomes soft and a little limp. His hair kind of looks unflatteringly flat.
Regardless, using some styling mousse helps to volumize his hair.
Finally, would I recommed this shampoo to someone with hair loss issues?
Most definitely for the almost immediate results that I see for myself in terms of the reduction in hair loss.
