OGX Shampoo - Review
As you know I love researching and trying new beauty products and I've been looking into the OGX hair products for a while now, they have an amazing range of shampoo and conditioners plus other products such as oils and masks and the products sound amazing, the only thing that was putting me off was my oily hair, I worried that the shampoo would cause my hair to become oily more quickly and if you're a regular reader of my blog you'll have heard me say that I like to use a clarifying shampoo or a detoxifying shampoo (full reviews of my current favourites here and here) to combat my oily hair but I wanted a shampoo I could use in between, something good for my hair, not damaging and something that wouldn't undo all the good that a clarifying/detoxifying shampoo does in regards to keeping my oily hair under control.
I've been researching the OGX (formally Organix) brand for a while now and their products are fantastic for the price, but they have so many different shampoos to choose from I really was spoilt for choice, I recently went into Boots and saw they had a 3 for 2 promotion on all hair care products and my mind was made up, I was going to try some of their products. I bought 3 shampoos, 2 of the Lemon Highlights shampoo's and 1 of the Kukui Oil shampoo's they were £6.99 each for 385ml and on because of the offer I paid £13.98 for all 3 products which is a great price.
What OGX Say About OGX
OGX is for all of us who aspire to make better choices. Our paraben-free, salon-inspired formulas contain exotic, active ingredients. Plus, they smell absolutely amazing. Our mission? We will never sacrifice performance in our quest for sustainability. OGX products do not contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Laurel Sulfate.
As I said I bought 2 different shampoos the Kukui Oil and the Lemon Highlights. I used the Lemon Hightlights shampoo first and the first thing I noticed was the scent, it smells amazing, it smells of coconut and a little lemony but sweet and fresh at the same time it's so hard to explain but it smells so good! It lathered up well and I didn't need a lot of product, it felt very luxurious to use and it rinsed out well too. I dried and styled my hair as normal using the Bumble & Bumble All Style Blow Dry cream before drying and styling as I always do, I felt it was a fair review to use the all style as I would usually use it.
My hair dried and styled well and felt soft and smooth once it was dry and styled, it was soft and also easy to brush through and it smelled amazing, my hair was also really shiny which is something of a rarity because it's blonde and blonde hair isn't usually shiny but it was and looked and felt lovely. I worried that the day after my hair would be oily and need washing but it was fine, I was able to wear it down again adding a little dry shampoo around my hair line, I needed to wash my hair the day after as it was quite oily but I was impressed my hair wasn't super oily the day after.
The Kukui Oil shampoo was the same as the Lemon Highlights, it smelled absolutely amazing, not the same obviously, and I can't quite explain what the Kukui Oil shampoo smelled of, it was sweet but not sickly and just a really lovely scent, as with the Lemon Highlights, the shampoo lathered well and also rinsed out well and my hair looked and felt amazing, it was shiny, smooth and looked and smelled amazing.
Overall Thoughts & Would I Re Purchase?
I am super impressed with the OGX shampoos and will 1 million percent be re purchasing, I already have the shampoo and conditioners on my holiday shopping list, I think both will be lovely to use on holiday especially the Kukui Oil as it claims to be good for humidity and holiday hair can be a nightmare, I also want to try the Cherry Blossom shampoo and conditioner too and can only imagine they will smell amazing too. There are numerous different shampoos and conditioners to choose from in the range as well as oils and hair masks you can read all about them on the OGX website, they also have an FAQ page which is really helpful.
Usually a shampoo and conditioner that is free from sulphates would be very expensive so for the OGX range to be £6.99 is a fantastic price, my eldest daughter Cole knows a lot when it comes to hair and hair care as she's a hair stylist and make up artist, she has used the shampoos and is also really impressed with them, she has dry hair and loved the way the Kukui Oil shampoo made her hair feel, she always buys sulphate free products and usually pays 3 times the price of the OGX so she was really happy with both the price and the results the shampoo gave her hair. I also love that the products are paraben free, they are also not tested on animals.
I will continue to use the shampoo once or twice a week and use my detoxifying shampoos the rest of the time, I love the way the OGX leaves my hair feeling and it's a nice treat for my hair once or twice a week, I will definitely purchase the shampoos for my holidays and I am going to try the conditioners too, I wash my hair daily on holiday so even using a conditioner won't make my hair oily, at home I'll stick with the Ojon conditioner I love. I think sulphate free shampoo for £6.99 is a brilliant price, and the shampoos smell amazing, they lather well, rinse well and leave my hair looking and feeling lovely, I will definitely be re purchasing, the only thing I need to decide is, which one do I buy?
If you would like to try the OGX shampoos you can find them at Boots for £6.99 and Superdrug for £4.66 per shampoo and conditioner.
Have you tried the OGX range? Which one is your favourite? Can you recommend a sulphate free shampoo that won't leave me with oily hair? Please let me know in the comments, it's lovely to chat to you there :)
