I am always looking for new hair care products, especially during winter when I realize that my hair is weak, ends are out of control and without shine. For a while now I’ve wanted to switch to an all-natural shampoo which is why I tried Milk_Shake’s new Energizing Blend Range as it is designed to energise and thicken thin, weak and fragile hair, whilst stimulating the scalp, hair and body. The range consists of a Hair Thickener Shampoo, Hair Thickener Conditioner and Hair Thickener Scalp Treatment.
I love the fact that the key ingredients are; organic rosemary which has antiseptic and purifying effects organic sage which is anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and deodorizing effect and finally eucalyptus was added. The range is free off SLS/SLES and parabens which is really crucial for being hair friendly.
So let me tell you more about the range itself.
I applied the Hair Thickener Shampoo as any other shampoo. However, if you’re a newbie in sulphate/paraben free world, do not panic as there is barely any foam. The shampoo left my hair soft and nourished.
After rinsing off the shampoo, I applied Hair Thickener Conditioner. However, before applying the conditioner I always gently towel dry my hair. If your hair is not soaked with water, conditioner will have the chance to stay in your hair and actually do the magic there. I usually only apply a small amount of conditioner as with previous experience I found too much conditioner made my hair unclean and into a tangled mess. Finally leave the conditioner in for few minutes before rinsing it off.
You can finish the treatment with Hair Thickener Scalp Treatment which is an energizing lotion for thin or fragile hair to cleanse and stimulate the scalp to improve micro-circulation. Apply the treatment to clean hair and scalp in sections, gently massage for few minutes. No need for rinsing, you can continue with styling as desired.
The range has a very strong Rosemary and Sage scent. When I first smelled the products, I was afraid that the fragrance was a bit overpowering leaving my hair in this heavy scent. Luckily I was wrong! It left a very gentle scent which people around you won’t notice.
I noticed that I needed to wash my hair more often when I use organic shampoos. Usually I wash my hair every three days but with this shampoo it is definitely every other day.
Overall the new Milk_shake Energizing Blend Range is very good as it has increased the thickness of my hair more than any other brand I tested. I believe this range is appropriate for anyone who dye’s their hair regularly as it will eventually loose it’s thickness and shine. My hair has been a bit moody lately but this range has added extra volume whilst leaving the hair soft. Furthermore, I found the scent to be very calming. I would definitely say this range is worth trying.
