Lavera Repairing Rose Milk Shampoo & Conditioner

June 3, 2008

An SLS free natural repair shampoo ideal for dry or damaged hair, made with extracts of rose, jojoba and avocado oil.

Lavera’s rose milk shampoo and conditioner were the very first natural hair care products I bought because I liked quite a few of the other products in the Lavera range.

My hair type: Long, curly hair that can get quite dry. I very rarely use a hair dryer and prefer to let it try naturally because I create more mess than I tidy up!

Shampoo: Smelt fantastic and was easy to rub in and rinse out. It left my hair feeling squeaky clean and created a fair amount of lather but not that many bubbles as it is SLS free.

Conditioner: The conditioner was very rich but easy to work in. Once I had rinsed the conditioner out, my hair still felt quite dry and unconditioned.

Once my hair had dried, I was a bit disappointed because it didn’t feel very smooth and the ends still felt quite dry. I used it a couple more times after this in case I hadn’t rinsed it all out properly or used too much of the product but had the same problem and my hair seemed to get a bit greasy. Having said that, I washed my hair every other day with these products, so it could be that they are better suited to being used as an occasional treatment to avoid product build up.

I used both the shampoo and the conditioner every other day and they lasted me quite a long time because I didn’t need to use too much.

Summary

  • Pros: Good value for money, lasted a long time
  • Cons: Product build up if I used it too frequently
