Giovanni 2 Chic Shampoo & Conditioner
Changing my hair care products to being all natural wasn’t a necessity for me originally as I wanted to first focus on my skincare. This is the first shampoo and conditioner with cleaner ingredients that I tried: Giovanni 2 Chic Argon Oil duo. The brand is vegan, cruelty free, SLS free, paraben free and so on.
I found this brand in my local health food store where the products more expensive than what I am used to paying with each bottle costing roughly £9.00 each for 250ml bottles. Since purchasing these items I have found that TK Max actually stock the 710ml bottles within stores and these cost £10.00 individually so there is a money saving tip if you are planning on purchasing.
So as for the products themselves, I really love them! I was pleasantly surprised because I almost expected to not have amazing results. My hair didn’t feel stripped at all which is something I felt previously.
What drew me to these products was the packaging! The packaging is so sleek that they just look expensive and I was originally surprised when I found out that these items were natural, cruelty free, and vegan. Whilst I am mentioning about the packaging I will also say how the product is easy to squeeze out of the bottle and the lid is very secure and doesn’t leak at all. However, be careful when putting the product into your hand whilst washing as a lot can be dispersed through the hole.
Both of the items have a very faint scent that is pleasant and not over powering or artificial and the scent is also not strong on the hair after washing. If you’re used to having flowery smelling hair after washing then drop those expectation with this product. The smell is virtually non existent but instead just smells clean which is a positive thing in my mind.
As the shampoo doesn’t contain and sulphates the product doesn’t lather up a lot when being massaged into the hair but it lathers up just enough to move around the hair and clean all the areas necessary. However, you might find that you need to use a tad bit more than what you are used to.
The conditioner is moisturising which I am very happy about as my hair was feeling very dry previously. But again, you may find that you need slightly more product than you used to use. I run the conditioner through the mid lengths and ends of my hair, then I comb through with a wide tooth comb, and leave on for around 2 minutes before rinsing.
My hair doesn’t have any knots after I wash it and it dries to be soft an definitely not stripped at all. I did find that the bottle of conditioner didn’t last very long and only lasted me around 6 washes so keep that in mind before purchasing. Also, at first I found that my hair did get greasy again quite quickly (2-3 days) after washing as I usually wash my hair every 5-7 days. Now that I have been using these products from a few months I can say that my hair is back to not needing a wash for 5-7 days.
