Color safe: Check.
Adorable “milk-chug” looking packaging: Yep.
In my search for quality products that contain a few less chemicals than their typical counterparts, I wanted to give a sulfate-free shampoo a try. I picked up the Healthy Sexy Hair Chocolate Soymilk Shampoo and regular Soymilk Conditioner set from my local Beauty First store.
The shampoo comes in either regular or Chocolate variety. I choose the chocolate, because, well, I liked the scent. It smells like a milk shake! The shampoo actually had a ton of sudsing action for a sulfate-free product. Very impressive. The conditioner worked well, but may be a little heavy if you have normal to oily hair. I was left with manageable, moisturized and lightly scented hair. The chocolate sweet smell did fade pretty quick- so if it’s not your favorite, you shouldn’t notice it after a few hours.
As I mentioned above, I loved the packaging and being square, they were easy to grip in the shower. The flip-top caps were a tad difficult to open with slippery hands though.
After a few days use, my hair had adjusted well, but my scalp became a mess. My guess-tamation is that the products were not cleansing my skin properly which resulted in a ton of buildup. And then I started breaking out in cystic acne on my face, neck, ears (any place my hair brushed my skin). Ouch. I’m not sure what I might have reacted to or been allergic to, but this shampoo and conditioner didn’t work for me. It was truly a shame since my hair looked fabulous!!
If you can find a trial size at your local salon and do not have sensitive skin, I would certainly give this line a shot.
You can purchase Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Milk Conditioner and Shampoo at Drugstore.com or at your local Beauty First or salon. Prices vary from $10 to $15 depending on where you buy and if you hold out for a sale.
