Review: I've been wanting to try the Orgnix line for a while so when I learned that Walgreens had a BOGO free sale going on I thought it would be the perfect time to try it out. I've only cowashed my hair using the conditioner once so this is my initial reaction to the product. First of all the product smells great! I love the scent of coconut so I figured I would enjoy this. It provided good slip making it fairly easy to detangle my hair. While the product was in my hair it felt soft however once I rinsed it out my hair did not feel as great. I attribute this to the fact that this product and several other Organix products contain silicone. Silicone is said to create the illusion of silky hair because it coats and smooths the hair cuticle making it appear to be healthy. For this reason a lot of naturals avoid using products that contain silicone. That's a story for another day so let me get back to the review. After rinsing my hair I sealed my ends with EVCO and put it in about 8 chunky twist. I didn't want to use any other products that may cause my review to be skewed. This morning my hair smells great but unfortunately feels really dry. I am really disappointed but can't say I'm surprised, my review seems to be aligned with several other reviews I read online.
Summary: Not the best product for this 4a/b naturalista. I like the price and fragrance but the silicone and drying effect it had on my hair is a no no!!! I will save this product and try to give it away at a product swap. I don't foresee buying the product again.
