Product Review: Organix Conditioner

Another purchase because it was on sale, lol! I was looking for a good conditioner for co-washing, preferably with coconut or shea, and since I had heard some good things about the Organix line, I decided to buy it when it was buy one, get one free at Rite Aid a little over a month ago. I bought the coconut and the vanilla conditioners, and got a rebate to get my money back. So, as soon as my they send me my money, it will be like getting 2 for free! When I got home, I decided to co-wash with the vanilla conditioner. As I rinsed my pre-poo out in the shower, my hair felt so soft and silky. I put about a quarter-sized amount of the Organix in my hair, and within seconds, my hair felt hard and it was so tangled, I wanted to cry! I immediately applied a lot of Suave conditioner in to soften and de-tangled. It worked okay, but my hair was so much better before I put in the Organix!

Of course I vowed to never use it again. However, after I got over it, I thought about trying it as a pre-poo. Since then I've been alternating between the coconut and vanilla. I either put in on after my vatika oil, or mix it with it. It's been really good for my hair as a pre-poo, helping to make it stronger and thicker. Next, I want to try the Organix serum- when it's on sale of course.

Its good that you used this as a prepoo before hand because this product contains strong proteins, therefore, it will make your hair feel hard and stiff. Its best to use something moisturizing afterwards like that you did. I've never seen this product before...i'll look out for it.

My cousin recommended this product to me... as an alternative to pouring coconut milk on my head.

It definitely caught my eye in the store but I decided to pass. (Apparently, the only time my PJism was under control, lol!)

I know I'm late on this one but I actually have the serum (lol still waiting on my rebate 2 months later!!)I really like it. It's a tad heavy for my hair so I won't use it when i've had a blow out (it weighs my hair down.) But I find if I use it after a roller set it makes my the curls last long. I also use it before I roll my hair (like a heat protectant). I like it.
