In July I was approached by The Purist Company to review a few products. Since I am up to my neck in skin care products to review for you all, I requested hair care products. Iona was kind enough to send me the [Al'chemy] Lavender Shampoo, the [Al'chemy] Avocado & Calendula Re-Moisturising Conditioner, and the [Al'chemy] Lavender & Anthyllis, 24 Hour Intensive Moisture Leave-In Conditioner.

 I was really excited to try this brand because
they are formulated free from:
•mineral oils
•synthetic fragrances
•artificial colours
•propylene glycol
•ethoxylated and petrochemical cleansers

The shampoo ($14.50, 225ml ) was  nice and thick and had a very strong lavender scent, which was a bit too strong for me. I started with a normal amount I'd use for shampooing and worked it into my hair. Due to the lack of detergent or surfactants, it doesn't lather, so that was strange for me. But it did leave my hair feeling clean, but not stripped. This is recommended for dry or damaged hair. 

The conditioner ($14.50, 225ml 150ml) was nice and thick as well--which I love! It didn't really have much of a scent to me. I used the normal amount I'd use when conditioning and it did leave my hair nice and soft! This is recommending for people with dry or chemically treated hair.

The leave-in-conditioner ($17.95)  is my absolute favorite though! It's fairly thick and creamy, but doesn't leave your hair feeling gooey or weighted down.  The lavender scent in this is much more mild, which I prefer. **I don't know about you, but I'd rather smell like my perfume!** After using these products for a while **several weeks**, I do think my hair looks and feels healthier! This is for all hair types!

I've also used all these products on my two daughters hair. Let me tell you, if you have curly hair or hair that gets tangled easily, these products are great for that!! I spend SO much time getting tangles out of hair at my house and this really does cut the tendency down and helps me get out the ones that get in there!

These products are a little pricey, but if you are really looking for great hair care and others aren't cutting it, check out The Purist Company!

FTC Disclosure: While I was sent these products for review, this is my honest opinion. I was not paid to write this review, nor I am affiliated with the company.
