I chose to switch back to Aubrey Organics after some research and finally figuring out how to use their products to best benefit my hair. Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo and Conditioner along with the GPB Conditioner and Rosa Mosqueta Conditioner boast amazing ingredients.
When I first tried to use the Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo and Conditioner two years ago I went about it wrong. I tried to use the conditioner as a co-wash, bad idea. The conditioner is so thick and moisturizing it is incapable of cleansing anything out of my hair and that is why I felt like it "wasn't doing anything" in my hair. Around that time I was also testing out the no-poo method which didn't work out for me. The conditioner works best in my hair as a leave-in when used sparingly, I love the moisture it adds to my hair along with shea butter. I also use it as a deep conditioner by mixing an oil of my choice along with honey or molasses. I get amazing results, other than that when I try to use it a different way I don't get the same benefits this amazing conditioner can offer.
The shampoo was also being used the wrong way. I did research on the use of this shampoo and found out it is a low lather shampoo and you only need a little concentrated on your scalp and than messaged down the length of your hair for it to effective. That means all those times I was piling tons of the shampoo on my hair for it to lather meant that I was stripping my hair of natural moisture and oils, I was using too much. That explains why my hair felt so dry when I usied it two years ago. Now, I only use about six to eight quarter sized dabs throughout my hair and scalp, let it sit for about a minute, message it in a little while allowing the shampoo to cover the entire length of my hair, than rinse.
Both the shampoo and conditioner are concentrated so you only need a fraction of the product compared to commercial brands, especially the shampoo.
On cosmeticdatabase.com the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo and Conditioner are both rated a 3, while Kiss My Face Big Body had a rating of 6. I'm not knocking Kiss My face, I'm simply stating a fact. Kiss My Face has amazing Soaps, lotions and hair care products, it comes down to personal choice and lifestyle and Aubrey Organics shampoos and conditioners mostly contains less toxins than Kiss My Face hair care products.
I will be doing a face off between Aubrey Organics B-5 Design Gel and my favourite gel, Kiss My Face Upper Management Styling Gel.
