I was blessed with an opportunity to try out a shampoo to review on my blog from Maple Holistics. I have had a hard time finding the right shampoo for my hair in general. I am very into taking good care of my long luscious hair, especially since my hair has been a natural color for long over a year now (that is crazy for me since I started dying my hair when I was sixteen). My natural hair is quite naturally oily and thick. I find most shampoos really ruin the look of my hair and makes it even oilier or dries it out too much. For a few years now I have been using Big Shampoo by Lush (which is expensive but does last me three months at a time). I also use rice water once a week in my hair.
Natural shampoos are what I really look into when choosing to care for my hair, because a lot of shampoos strip your natural oils and add chemicals that could be harmful to your scalp, hair, and health. I also am against animal testing.
Maple Holistics shampoo is all natural, sulfate free, cruelty free, and is even safe for if I ever do decide to dye my hair again one day. I use tea tree oils in my cleaning products as well as to help with my health for diffusers and if I have a cold and put a few drops in my hand to smell which really clears my sinuses well (seriously, try it). This shampoo in particular helps with hair growth (have you seen how long my hair is? I want longer hair even), has therapeutic benefits (which I love), slows hair loss, prevents dandruff, and helps your scalp. This is safe for the whole family to use.
I have taken a while to write this post because I really wanted to try this shampoo out and have my head adjust to it as well as see how my hair looks after using it. I have owned this for nearly a month and the people at Maple Holistics have been patient and kind with me in waiting for this post (we do keep in contact). I have only used an inch and a half worth of shampoo in the whole month of using it (hard to see the line, but if you look at the third picture you can sorta see it above the label). I like that this is affordable and long lasting.
I will say that my hair has been reacting so well to it. I don’t have ultra oily hair like I was worried about, my head and hair feels and looks clean, and I have an enjoyable time applying it to my head. You know what it really cool about it too? The only ingredients in it are Aqua, Jojoba Oil, Botanical Keratin, Argan Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, and Rosemary Oil. Those are all things I love!! I will say that I feel glad about using it. I even took a selfie with my hair dry in my bathroom mirror after using it. I am pretty certain I’ll keep using this product.
