It has been a while since I sat down to share with you beauty products tailored towards hair. In truth, if there is one beauty area that I tend to fall short on, it is hair. I have never really got to grips with finding the products that work best for me, often struggling with products that made my hair greasy or leave it feeling too dry and stripped. To date, I have found no real happy medium, nothing that I can stick to using on a regular basis.
My general feelings when it comes to hair care is that I have to switch things up quite regularly. I can’t use the same things all of the time as I feel as though my hair gets used to them and the effectiveness of said products soon diminish.
Last year (this review is so late) I received a few products to try from the hair care range by Tropic. In the past I have used a number of their products and have thoroughly enjoyed them, therefore I was curious to see what the hair care products I received were going to be like. I
Clarifying Hair Wash
The Tropic Clarifying Hair Wash* retails at £16 for 250ml. The product itself surprised me as it is a really runny liquid, it doesn’t have the viscosity that you would come to expect of a normal shampoo. It smells refreshing, although it isn’t overpowering or in fact that strong at all. It is also pH balanced and made naturally with ingredients such as aloe vera juice, vitamin B5 and more. My hair is left feeling clean when I have used this which is, of course, the aim, however, I mean squeaky clean!
Nourishing Hair Cleanser
Moving onto the Tropic Nourishing Hair Cleanser* I am sad to say that I just didn’t like this shampoo as much as the former. This version retails at slightly more at £18 for 250ml whereby this is aimed more towards those with dry/colour treated hair. The issue I personally had with this is that I found it to be too thick. Even once rinsed through, I found that it made my hair feel weighed down and made it feel flat and limp, so much so that I just wanted to re-wash it. It is a shame as I love the smell of this one, I find it to be a bit stronger than the Clarifying Hair Wash, although perhaps that is just me.
Both of the products featured today are cruelty free and are suitable for vegans.
Overall the hair care products are hit and miss, that being said, we all have different hair types and environments that our hair is subjected to; it is not just the skin after all. So, despite that, I myself didn’t have a great experience with one of the products you should still keep an open mind because as we all know, what may not work for me may work wonderfully for you.
