I am slowly but surely working my way through Organix hair care system in search of one that will work for me. Why? Call it a “gut” feeling that this line may be just what I need.
When you have thin, baby fine, dry and flat hair, you are always in search of the perfect product. I have been looking for it all my life.
While I wasn’t impressed with Organix’s Revitalizing Cherry Blossom Ginseng hair care system, I immediately fell in love with their Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo. Recently, I picked up the matching conditioner to the latter, which I will review here.
There were several goals I use in choosing a hair care system. I want something organic with very few or, better yet, no additives, chemicals and preservatives.
Second I want a brand that is committed to the environment. The thought of millions of shampoo and conditioner bottles littering the landfills and oceans literally makes me sick to my stomach.
Lastly, I want a system that doesn’t contain phosphates or sulfates. Those ingredients can actually damage hair further while they cleanse.
Organix products filled all those goals and then some. It was just a matter of finding the best match for my hair.
As a bonus, Organiz products are also usually paraben free. That’s another important factor. It doesn’t just coat the outside of the hair. It works from within to restore the hair’s natural balance.
It is easy to appreciate the fact that Organix products are eco-friendly throughout. That includes both the product itself as well as the packaging, right down to the ink printed on the bottle.
It is equally important to note that Organix products are not animal tested. Loving animals, that is a crucial point of contention for me.
However, the real test of Organix is in how it works. While the Revitalizing Cherry Blossom Ginseng hair care system seemed to fall short, at least for me, the Nourishing Coconut Milk system more than makes up for it.
Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner promises to nourish the hair while also providing additional strength and elasticity. That is accomplished by using whipped egg white proteins into the formula. In addition, coconut oil hydrates the hair.
While the shampoo works wonders on its own, when it is used in conjunction with the conditioner, its benefits are definitely magnified. They provide an amazing one/two punch.
Like the shampoo, Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner smells heavenly. The sweet coconut makes it seem like a decadent treat.
Conditioning is a simple process. One simply applies about a quarter-sized amount of the conditioner to the ends of hair that has been of freshly and partially dried.
Start at the ends of the hair — usually the most damaged part — and work upto the roots. Next, let it soak in for roughly one to five minutes. All that is left then is to rinse, dry and style the hair.
Ingredients include albumen, coconut extract and oil, glycerin, hydrolyzed milk protein, jojoba seed oil, panthenol, parfume, silk ammino acids, vitamin E and water, It also includes behentrimonium, cetyl alcohol, cylopentasiloxane, coumarine, dimethicone, DMDM hydantoine, glyceryl stearate, glucoside, methosulphate, methylchloroisothiazolinone and tetrasodium EDTA.

Here is my summary review:
Effectiveness: 5 stars. Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner works beautifully, making hair look healthy, shiny, and hydrated.
Smell: 5 stars. The coconut smell is like a Hawaiian tropical paradise. Your hair smells every bit as good as it looks.
Variety: 5 stars. If the Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner hair care system doesn’t work for you, don’t worry. There are more than a dozen other hair care systems from which to select. One or more of them is bound to suit your needs.
Packaging: 5 stars. Each Organix system is color-coded for easy location on the store shelf. The Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner, like the shampoo, comes in a white bottle with a gold cap. Information is written in black eco-friendly ink for easy reading. The Organix label is prominently displayed. The unusual oval bottle ensures unique packaging.
Ease of storage: 5 stars. The bottle measures 6″ in height and nearly 4″ in width. It is roughly 2″ in depth. Its unusual flatness makes it easy to hold as well as store. It should fit easily into a bathroom cabinet, a drawer or vanity.
Availability: 5 stars. Organix products are now found in major discount department stores like K-Mart and drug chains like Rite Aids. Additionally, they can also be purchased at some beauty boutiques such as Ulta.
Price: 4 stars. Organix products cost a bit more. I bought mine for $5 and change at Wal-Mart. They are; however, less pricey than some of today’s designer shampoos and conditioners. Those can run $10 and up.
