Beauty Bets' Citrus Moment

My girl Elizabeth Dehn, over at Beauty Bets, recently posted a Friday Freebie contest that StormSister Spatique sponsored.

While we were talking beauty shop, I also wanted her two cents on the following John Masters Organics products:

Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Wash - loves.
Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Milk - loves and was featured in her blog post.
Citrus Neroli Detangler - loves.
Lavender Rosemary Shampoo - not so much.

Elizabeth does not have chemically addicted hair (I know! I didn't think those women existed either. Go figure.). That being said, I thought she may really like the JMO shampoo since her hair is fine and I feel that what the shampoo lacks in suds, the astringent properties of the essential oils would really plump up her fine hair tresses.
Elizabeth combined it with the Citrus Neroli Detangler and desided her hair was a little fly-away. (So, maybe it was a little too astringent?) She thought that maybe if it were paired with a heavier conditioner, she may like it better.
Elizabeth and I have spoken extensively about the sulfate-free shampoo movement and she admits to having some difficulty with how her hair feels and behaves when she uses them. But, she is determined to keep at it.

This is very new technology, manufacturing healthier haircare/beauty care products, and it is in a constant state of change.

I have blogged about this subject a lot and have long since gotten over the no-suds issue.
The toxic ingredients that make up the "sudsing", simply are not worth the probable health concerns.

Ahhh, ignorance was such bliss....
