I’m well on my way to finding the perfect shampoo and conditioner. I have found a lot of good products to choose from. Unfortunately, I have also uncovered more than my share of duds.
The verdict is still out with regard to my latest conditioner’s hair regrowth claims. However, it scores high on everything else.
This product is made by Organix. It is called Energizing Passionfruit Guava.
Recently I reviewed the corresponding shampoo. This time around I want to talk about the conditioner. Of the two, I like the conditioner better than the shampoo.
Although my favorite hair care system from Organix is still their Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner, I like the immediate effects of Energizing Passionfruit Guava as well. However, it will take time for me to notice any real change in stimulation of new hair growth.
I began looking for a new hair care system when I decided I was spending too much on my favorite, which is Ojon. I felt guilty about spending so much money on my hair.
However, I wanted some of the same properties represented by Ojon in my new hair care system. In particular, I wanted a system that contained no paraben, phosphates or sulfates, which are bad for both my hair and the environment.
I also wanted a hair care system that wasn’t animal tested. That was very important to me.
Finally, I wanted a system that was environmentally conscious right down to the packaging. Organix products fit the bill on every count.
Of course the real test of any shampoo or conditioner is how well it works. It is so far, so good with reagard to this one. I’m definitely a happy camper.
Like the shampoo, Organix Energizing Passionfruit Guava Conditioner smells bubble gum sweet. While that is certainly not my favorite fragrance to use on my hair, it does feel delightful going on.
Using Organix Energizing Passionfruit Guava Conditioner is easy. You just apply an amount about the size of a quarter into the palm of your hands. Rub your hands together to distribute it well. Then run the conditioner through the hair, beginning at the ends and working back toward the roots.
Let the conditioner sit in place for somewhere between 1 and 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cool water. Dry and style as usual and you are set to go.
Ingredients include albumen, courmarine, glycerin, jojoba seed oil, honey blossom extract, hydrolyzed milk protein, organic passion fruit extract, organic guava extract, panthenol, parfume, silk ammino acids, vitamin E and water, They also include cetyl alcohol, behentrimonium methylsulfate, cetearyl glucoside, cylopentasiloxane, dimethicone, glyceryl stearate, DMDM hydantoine, methylchloroisothiazolinone, and tetrasodium EDTA.
If Passionfruit Guava doesn’t suit your fancy, there are plenty of other Organix hair care systems from which to choose. These include but are not necessarily limited to:
Cocoa Butter promises elasticity and shine;
Cucumber Yogurt controls the frizz while it energizes the scalp;
Grapefruit Mango Butter moisturizes and leaves hair with an incredible shine;
Lavender Soy Milk strengthens hair and does major damage control;
Mandarin Olive Oil strengthens and fortifies the hair while repairing unsightly split end;
Mocha Expresso rejuvenates the hair to bring back its silky luster;
Pomegranate Green Tea repairs damaged hair, leaving it luminescent;
Shea Butter smoothes and tames the frizz that makes hair look old;
Tea Tree Mint hydrates and balances for healthy bounce and shine;
Vanilla Silk tames the frizz to make hair look healthy;
White Tea Grapeseed repairs and improves the hair’s elasticity and strength.
As I said, so far I like this conditioner even more than the corresponding shampoo. It does leave my hair soft and shiny with a healthy look. Only time will tell; however, if the Energizing Passionfruit Guava hair care system actually helps to stimulate new hair growth.
Here is my summary review:
Effectiveness: 4 stars. Organix Energizing Passionfruit Conditioner works beautifully. I love the say my hair looks and feels are using it. However, the verdict is still out with regard to new hair growth.
Smell: 4 stars. The smell reminds me of bubble gum. While that is something I wouldn’t normally equate with a hair product, in the long run I don’t care about the smell as long as it works.
Variety: 5 stars. If this hair care system doesn’t suit you needs, there a wide variety of others from which to choose. I’m betting at least one of them will solve your hair issues too.
Packaging: 5 stars. Each Organix system is color-coded for easy location on the store shelf. The Organix
Energizing Passionfruit Guava Conditioner, like its corresponding shampoo, comes in a coral bottle with a gold cap. All of the necessary information is provided on the bottle. It is written in black eco-friendly ink, which I really love. The Organix logo is prominently displayed on the bottle in gold. The lovely oval shaped bottle ensures packaging that is easy to spot on the store shelf.
Ease of storage: 5 stars. The modified oval, semi-flat bottle measures 6″ in height, 4″ in width, and 2″ in depth. The bottle is easy to hold and manipulate and should store well almost anywhere you choose to put it. That would include a medicine cabinet, vanity, or travel bag.
Availability: 5 stars. Organix products are prominently displayed in major discount department stores like Wal-Mart as well as drug chains like Rite Aids. Some beauty boutique, like Ulta, also carry this line.
Price: 4 stars. Organix products is a bit pricier than some other brands. I bought mine for $5 and change at Wal-Mart. However, they cost significantly less than some of today’s designer hair care options. They can easily run $10 and up.
Product purchase probability: 5 stars. I admit that the Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk hair care system is still my favorite, but I really like Energizing Passionfruit Guava as well.
Final rating: 4.7 stars. I believe this shampoo may work for others. It’s just not for me.
5 stars – outstanding
4 stars – good
3 stars – average
