In November, I got this shampoo from Perfect Trust Cosmetics, ASG Shopping Complex (opposite Ascon Filling Station), Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja. It cost 2000 Naira. Not bad at all, considering it retails for about $10 in the obodos.
I’m halfway through my bottle now, so it’s safe to say, it’s time for a review!
Aqua (Water), Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Disodium Cocoamphodiporopionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polyquaternium-7, Cocoamide MEA, Glycerin, Polyquaternium-10, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Yarrow, Hops, Rosemary, Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Olea Europea (Olive) Fruit Oil, PPG-5-Ceteth-10-Phosphate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Parfum (Fragrance), Benzyl Benzoate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Lilial, Methylionone.
Okay, so this is a lot of chemicals. ( ._.)
But have you noticed? This is a Sulfate Free Shampoo! It is also free of Parabens, and Mineral oil.
Perfect for all textures: Wavy, Curly and Kinky.
Lavish in the ultimate shampoo experience as your hair is gently cleansed, moisturised and detangled with lemon balm, rosemary and hops.
How I Use:
As usual. I Pre-poo. Get hair wet, then work shampoo through hair, focusing on the scalp. When I’m satisfied, I rinse clean. (I like to use warm water to wash my hair, same applies for co-washing)
Smell: like Baby Shampoo. Good enough for me.
Consistency: It is kind of thick- not as light as other shampoos I’ve used.
The Bottle: It’s okay, but over the last three months, I’ve done a bit of traveling with it in tow. I swear I close it tight, but it manages to open somehow. So be sure to tie it up!
Cleansing & Moisturising: One wash is enough to get my hair and scalp clean, but when I washed my hair after NYSC camp- the dirt was unbelievable. I didn’t realise Obubra was that dusty! Beige lather yo. I washed, rinsed, and I just had to wash again. I was impressed that my hair did not feel stripped at all.
Detangling: I normally don’t bother to detangle my hair at the Shampoo stage, but as this product claimed to have detangling properties, I put it to the test. Yes it has some slip.For a quick note about Slip, please go here. I was able to gently finger detangle as easily as I would with an average conditioner. However, its slip definitely cannot compare to a very good conditioner- so you may still want to skip the detangling tip at this point.
Anyhoo, this product definitely does as it says. It washes clean, it is non-stripping, and it can detangle too!
Would I Buy This Again?
Yes! Apart from my little reservation about the bottle and the opening thing, I’m pretty happy with this shampoo! 🙂
If you’re in Abuja, you could check Perfect Trust Cosmetics, and if you’re based anywhere else in Nigeria, you can get this on Olori.com. For more deets about both stores, look them up in the Where to Find Directory.
