I have been so impressed with this haircare from Evolve – it’s SLS-free yet foams very nicely, it smells good enough to eat and it leaves my hair really shiny. I love the fact that this formula is a detoxifying one – it removes product build-up and general gunk that makes hair seem dull, yet it doesn’t contain any harsh, oil-stripping chemicals. My version of the Detox & Protect shampoo and conditioner is for “oily and congested hair” which is exactly what I have needed over the past week – I’ve had really greasy roots and I’ve also had a couple of shoots, so loads of hairspray and mousse to wash out! This shampoo removed them with no problems whatsoever and left my scalp feeling comfortable and soothed.
I had a few problems with the conditioner, namely that it was leaving a greasy residue in my hair. Turns out I wasn’t rinsing properly – you really need to give this a good old rinse, not just a quick slosh about! After rinsing properly – I’m talking a couple of minutes, really combing your fingers through to ensure that every hair is rinsed – this conditioner left my hair soft and shiny. I did need a bit of serum to get it looking silky, but I find that with all natural conditioners pretty much – once you take away the silicon, you don’t get that instant ‘swoosh’ factor’. What you do get, though, is healthier hair in the long-run; nourished from the scalp to the very tips of the hair.
99.6% of the ingredients in this haircare are from natural origin and the packaging is 100% recycled from milk cartons. The shampoo smells just like Terry’s Chocolate Orange, and the conditioner smells slightly sweeter – like Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ice Cream, perhaps? Scents aren’t my strong point, as you well know. But scent is by-the-by – what’s important is that this haircare removes product build-up and injects a bit of life into dull hair, all whilst using natural ingredients. A good choice for those who want to make the move to SLS-free products but need a shampoo that really cuts through oil and grime!
