Art Naturals Black Castor Oil Shampoo
Art Naturals Black Castor Oil Shampoo is paraben- and SLS-free.
Infused with lavender, pepperming and jojoba, it has a pleasant, mild citrusy fragrance.
This shampoo gets the thumbs up, five-star rating right from the first use as it softens the hair, making it very manageable.
Most importantly, it doesn’t cause more hair fall like what we experienced with some other shampoos.
Art Naturals Shampoo
I am already a fan of Art Naturals Argan Oil Shampoo, as some of you might have known.
Until recently, I did not realize that Art Naturals has more than 100 products ranging from hair care to skin care and even essential oils and diffusers.
A couple of months back, I purchased another product under Art Naturals shampoo range – the Black Castor Oil shampoo, just to test if it’s better that the organic argan oil shampoo that we have been using for some time now.
Art Naturals Hair Growth Shampoo
What’s in the product?
The Black Castor Oil Shampoo, together with the conditioner, are formulated to specially work together to strengthen, hydrate and revitalize dry, damaged, colour-treated hair.
The shampoo contains many of the good stuff you would want in your shampoo, including soothing aloe leaf juice, repairing rosehip oil and strengthening carrot oil. (The conditioner is equally blended with great ingredients to better manage your hair such as hydrating coconut oil, nettle extract to enhance shine as well as thyme extract to stimulate scalp and hair follicles. However, I did not get the conditioner because it’s just not my practice to use conditioners).
While the Art Naturals Black Castor Oil Shampoo is marketed as a strengthening and ‘growth’ shampoo, it is also a shampoo you might want to try if you are grappling with dry, hard-to-manage hair.
I guess the fact that the shampoo can remove excess product build-up would help in relieving dryness and hydrating hair shaft/scalp, leading to better hair growth.
Scent and Colour
Just to emphasize, the Art Naturals Black Castor Oil Shampoo is touted as one for strengthening and growth, particularly for colour-treated hair. Perfect, I thought. Since I went to the salon to have my hair dyed about the same time that the shampoo arrived, it was really an opportune time to try out the shampoo on my newly colour-treated hair!
In truth, this is my first time using a black-coloured shampoo….literally … it’s black in colour. But this shouldn’t put you off as the shampoo exudes a pleasant, mildly citrusy scent (owing to the infusion of lavender, jojoba and peppermint, I believe).
For those who are staying away from sulfate-free products, this would be a great option. It is also paraben-free and lathers easily even in hard water (I brought it to Melbourne, Australia, and tried it there. Yes, lathers easily even with hard water there!).
Firstly, this shampoo gets a thumbs up and five-star rating from me for being paraben- and SLS-free.
In addition to its appealing citrusy scent, it does not rip more hair off my scalp. I can’t be sure if it really helps in hair growth but it’s consolation enough to know that it doesn’t result in more hair loss.
One of the best things in using this shampoo is that it is really easy to manage the hair when it’s dry.
Best Deals For Art Naturals Shampoo
If you want to try this shampoo, sure you can get it from Amazon.com or iherb.com.
But I thought the best deals are from Art Naturals website itself, where (for instance), shipping is free within the U.S. for purchases of $20 and above.
You could also check out other products in the hair care or skin care range.
I discovered Art Naturals also has diffusers – going to add these in my next purchase!
