Do you folks know that feeling when you like something so you keep going back for more… something similar is happening to me in case of hair products from Organix. I recently used up the Argan Oil Shampoo which I loved; so no surprise I went back for more! Its the winters and girl needed help with her dry hair so chose the Quenching Sea Mineral Moisture Variant from the same brand.
725 INR for 385 ml

It comes packaged in the classic OGX style plastic bottle which they claim to be eco-friendly since it is made of recycled post consumer resin. The shampoo is of a light runny consistency similar to the Moroccon Argan Oil Shampoo from the same brand, that I was using earlier. Due to this one needs to be mindful of not squeezing out too much. I have mid-length hair so I need quite a bit of this. It lathers well, not too much- not too less, just the right amount in my opinion. The shampoo is of similar colour as the bottle and has a fresh tropical fragrance that is surprisingly not very overwhelming and doesn’t last very long. If you are one of those who want the hair to remain fragrant, you will be disappointed! I am OK with the smell mellowing and eventually disappearing so this is not an issue for me.
The good part about this product and generally other OGX offerings is that they claim to use SLS –free surfactants (learn why this is good – here) and don’t test on animals, so in essence good for your hair & your conscience!
It does a decent job of cleaning the scalp without drying the hair too much. But there was no shine with every swish! (scoff!!) I have an oily scalp and frizzy mid length hair, the ends of which are very dry & split end prone. This shampoo definitely helps control the frizz but doesn’t do a whole-lot for the dryness prevalent towards the ends of the hair strands. Hair is soft, voluminous and quite manageable for the first two days after shampoo. But third day onward the sebum & build up kicks in and starts weighing it down. It does contain silicones so that has a part to play in the softness that is noticed immediately after shampooing and the weighing down of hair after a couple of days.
- Price to Quantity Ratio
- Cruelty Free
- SLS free surfactants used
- Contains Silicones
- Will not be very effective on dry to very dry hair type.
- Not widely available in stores.
If you are looking for a shampoo that will last for a while and is slightly better than the usual ones that line the shelves at supermarkets; go for it. If you have very dry hair, this wont work so don’t get waylaid by the claims.
