Acure Organics has been regularly featured in my blog. I reviewed their wonderful Cell Stimulating facial mask (here) or their amazing Argan oil (here), and also tested some of their wonderful skincare products (here).
... and I obviously could not stop here. Yes I know, but when I love, I L O V E !
Like many, I could not ignore all the very positive reviews I have seen about their haircare line, so I decided to pick the shampoo designed for normal/devitalised hair and the conditioner. The products are sulfate-, paraben-, phtalate-, silicone-, cruelty-free. Here are my thoughts...
Moroccan Argan Stem cell + Argan oil Shampoo with CoQ10 + Omega 7 ($10.00 for 250ml)
My hair are usually quite easy to manage and don't present any problems, except for a bit of a dryish ends and slightly oily roots.
Opening the shampoo is like almost biting in a delicious and tender macaron due to the delicious almond scent (I like everything that has the taste of almonds!). So, if you look for a kind of fresh aroma, then this shampoo is not for you.
Application-wise now: it is again a big thumb up! The white and creamy shampoo lathers very well and is very gentle for the scalp and the hair length which already appear softened. After a good rinse, my hair looks kind of refreshed and cleansed while their natural balance is preserved. They also feel really nourished and smooth which is a big achievement when you have long hair and don't always want to use a conditioner to detangle them. This interesting smoothing property is due to the naturally- derived hydropropyltrimonuim ingredient that it contains. The shampoo also contains a beautiful blend of botanical extracts and plants oils (Rosehip, Blackberry, Pomegranate) which immediately restores the moisture to dry hair.
As an overall, this is a great shampoo if your hair is normal but with a tendency to be drier on the extremities. However it could also work very well as a post-swimming post-yoga post-gym shampoo for any type of hair especially color ones.

Moroccan Argan oil and stem cell conditioner triple moisture repairing ($10.00 for 250ml)
In my beauty resolution 2015 (check here for the post), haircare had a prime spot! Hence, I purchased the Acure conditioner alongside the shampoo featured above.
Housed in a smilar (and handy) packaging as the shampoo, the conditioner looks like an onctuous cream all ready to soothe and nurture the driest lock ever.....and it does! Just apply a tiny amount on cleansed hair or any areas that need a bit more moisture, leave it even just a couple of minutes (I tend to leave it longer when I have time) and see the wonderful results!
With glycerin, panthenol and Cocoa butter, the really nutrient-packed formula leaves my hair really manageable and incredibly soft. The formula also includes Argan stem cells which are supposed to stimulate the hair regeneration process and the follicule growth but in all honesty, I need to further investigate that claim.
As much as I love the conditioner, I only use it once or twice a week. That regime of application works well and I would only change it in summer as my hair tend to suffer of bit more from the sea/sun/salt drying effects.
...bye-bye to dry and unheathty hair!
