Review: The Honest Company: Shampoo and Conditioner Combo

Review: The Honest Company: Shampoo and Conditioner Combo

I like to use The Honest Company's Shampoo & Body Wash as a clarifying shampoo when my usual shampoo has created a sufficient amount of build-up on my hair. I usually use a very rich, moisturizing system which contains hefty amounts of Shea butter and other oils, since my hair is naturally thick and curly. But, about once a month, I like to start from scratch, removing excess oils, keeping my hair light and bouncy.

Both come in a variety of scents and are worth a try for most women, even if just for clarifying. Understandably, ethnic hair has different needs than other sorts and this duo may or may not be moisturizing or detangling enough for some. This is why I enjoy using the product for clarifying and sticking with my ultra moisturizing system from Shea Moisture, for the time being.

I have just started using Honest's lightweight conditioner, as well, when clarifying my hair and, surprisingly, I really like it! My hair is soft and manageable after usage and, though I like to follow it up with my usual thick, rich conditioner, I appreciate not having to use too much of it to achieve my desired effect. What surprised me most is the conditioner's moisturizing ingredients.


I like this combo so much, along with their leave in conditioner, I have ditched my thicker, richer Shea Moisture system, which I realized had been weighing my hair down for months! With The Honest Company's lighter, non-toxic shampoo and conditioners, my hair stays lighter and oil free longer. Plus, the conditioner and leave-in scare away tangles with ease. I'm surprised and I'm sold!
