Organix: Shampoo & Conditioner Review

So every time I pass the shampoo isle at Walmart, I see a long row of Organix products ranging from shampoo to oil spray. Usually Organix products costs anywhere from $8 – $13. Luckily on the day that I passed the shampoo isle, all of the Organix shampoos and conditioners (REGARDLESS OF SIZE) cost $5.83. I literally bought about $27 worth of shampoo and conditioner. I’m not a natural who purposely seeks out sulfate- free products or even products with sulfate in it. I’ve noticed that sulfates don’t really harm my hair, but just to be on the safe side I normally use sulfate- free products.

First I’ll start with reviewing shampoo, and then I’ll move to conditioner.

Sea Mineral Moisture Shampoo

Smell: Let me first start by saying I like the smell of all the Organix products, but between both shampoos I bought, I like this one the least. It’s not that it’s an unpleasant smell, it’s just plain. Maybe I’m expecting the wrong scent from Sea Mineral Moisture, but to me this wasn’t cutting it.

Consistency/ Texture: The consistency/texture of  the shampoo is different than any other shampoo I’ve ever used. It’s very thick and does lather up rather nicely. Although to have enough shampoo, you may have to use more than a handful of shampoo and use about 2 handfuls.

After Using: After using this Sea Mineral Moisture, I noticed that my hair was dryer than normal. It wasn’t totally drained of moisture, but it felt as if all the oils was stripped from my hair.

Kukui Oil Shampoo

Smell: I love the smell of this shampoo. It’s refreshing and smells like a blend of Argan oil and Moroccan oil.

Consistency/Texture: The consistency/texture of this shampoo is just like the Sea Mineral Moisture shampoo – thick and lathers nicely. With this shampoo, you will still find yourself using more shampoo than you normally use.

After Using: My hair did not feel dry, it felt very moisturized. With this shampoo, I saw my natural hair pattern (4a-4c) immediately after rinsing the shampoo out of my hair.

Coconut Milk Conditioner

Smell: The coconut smell is enticing. If you’ve ever used coconut oil, the smell that the oil gives off is comparable to the smell of this conditioner.

Consistency/ Texture: Very smooth and flowed right out of the bottle. This conditioner doesn’t have a greasy/slimy feeling.

After Using: Honestly my hair  felt the exact way it does after I use my normal conditioner. I didn’t notice a distinct difference.

Awapuhi Ginger Conditioner

Smell: I’ve actually been using this conditioner a lot lately. Surprisingly, I’m almost out. It smells like a delicate smell, and is not overbearing. Ex) The scent is there just enough to be smelled, but if you walk into a room everyone will not ask you about that amazing smell in your hair.

Consistency/ Texture: The texture is thick and that’s what I love about it.

After Using: My hair feels so smooth after using this!!! I changed this to the conditioner that I’ll use from now on. This conditioner really has done miracles for my hair and makes shower detangling  so much easier.


(Keratin Oil Conditioner as shown in picture was not reviewed due to the fact that I haven’t used it yet. When I use it, I’ll review it.)
