Hair Care Review: Original Sprout Worry-Free Luxury
When I was a little girl, my mom did something to me that was almost unforgivable! She cut my hair really short. I know you might have been expecting something worse, but that was it. I was about 4 or 5 years old….and for a little girl this was not a fun thing. Almost every time we went out, someone would invariably say, “What a cute little boy!” How anyone could mistake my little cherub face for a boy is beyond me…but anyway, sometimes I think having a “boy” cut at such a young age scarred me.
When I was in high school I grew my hair pretty long and got a perm. Yes, a perm. I had poodle hair and I thought it looked good! Looking back, I can see I was very wrong. When I was 23, my hair stylist convinced me to cut my hair and she took off way more than I was comfortable with. I had a short hair cut again! I do have one good thing to say about it though: short hair really is wash and go, which is ideal for those busy mornings when you just need to run out the door. Also, if you get a really stylish cut, it can look beautiful!
Eventually I grew it long again, cut it chin length and had a cute little bob. I missed my longer hair though so now I am in the process of growing it long yet again. Why so much hair talk today? Well, I don’t know about you, but for me, my hair has always been a majorly important part of my appearance and I wanted to give you a little bit of my hair history. Come on, who leaves the house without doing their hair? I’ve tried so many products to help my hair look its best, trashed ‘em, then tried some more. Sometimes, it’s a never-ending journey! Of course, I have very high standards when it comes to my hair products. Not just anything will do. I ditched the SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) laced stuff years ago, so my hair has already gone through a detox phase (which yours will too if you decide to switch to a natural shampoo.) It’s still sometimes tough to find a safe and effective natural shampoo that doesn’t weigh your hair down. Well I found it, folks and I am going to share my experiences with today’s hair care review!
Hair Care Review: It All Starts With an Original Sprout
At first, when I contemplated doing a review of Original Sprout’s Worry Free Luxury Line, I was hesitant. I thought it was just for babies, but then I did a bit more research and saw their products were designed for babies and up…..perfect for me since I (and most of us) fall into the “up” category! But I also decided to do this review because I know many families who are expecting or have small children and are concerned about the toxins in their future offering’s personal care products. So my testing of Original Sprout began! I was able to sample 4 products from their Worry Free Luxury Line, including three hair products and one body cream. The one thing that struck me besides the fact that all the ingredients are organic, natural and 100% vegan was the scent. I hate it when natural products have a strong, perfumey scent. I used to love the scent of lavender in my skin care…but when it’s overdone, it can be awful! This is not the case for Original Sprout. The products are scented with an absolutely wonderful, clean, and fresh scent that isn’t cloying at all and originate naturally from essential oils. They made my hair smell fresh for days and I love good smelling hair! Read on for more…
Ok, besides the scent, what else makes this shampoo stand out from the crowd? Check out these stats:
- Contains no xenoestrogenic essential oils for those sensitive to them, such as lavender
- Great for color treated hair since it helps retain your color
- No synthetic colors or dyes
- Gentle on eyes (truly no more tears)
- Gluten, soy, and peanut free
When I used it, I truly saw my hair’s health shine through. It claims to be “anti-frizz” and it is! I’ve never seen my hair behave like this before, especially in the South Florida heat. My hair usually begins the day behaving but by 3:00 is a big frizz ball. Not this time! It’s also SLS free yet still foams nicely, allowing you to really cleanse your hair of all the dirt, oil, and pollution it collects throughout the day. I also like that it’s for sensitive skin, so you know it will be great to use on baby! The only downfall: the bottle is 33 ounces (a pretty nice size) and sells for $42.95. Do you think that’s a lot? Not really, when you consider you’re buying a completely safe natural product and it comes out to only about $1.30 per ounce! Another way to save a bit on cost: you can opt for a sample pack before you decide to shell out $43 for the big bottle (or get the 12 ounce for $19.50.) They offering a 3 piece set consisting of a 4 ounce shampoo, conditioner, and spf sample for only $11.99. This is just a summer special so get in on it while supplies last!
Hair Care Review: Original Sprout Deep Conditioner
I have very tangly hair…usually after I shampoo, I apply conditioner, leave it in for a bit, and comb it through before rinsing. Even after doing this, I still have trouble getting the comb through. Ugh! Not with this fabulous conditioner. I was able to comb my hair easily! It smells awesome and is full of moisturizing ingredients such as:
- Kukui Seed Oil
- Organic Chamomile
- Organic Rosemary
- Organic Arnica Montana
Hair Care Review: Original Sprout Miracle Detangler
When I saw they had a detangler, I jumped on it since I have such tangly hair and also because I know many kids do too (especially girls.) The worst thing when you’re a kid is felling the pain when your mom tries to comb your hair through after your bath. This detailer truly is a miracle! It’s a lightweight creme in a spray form. As soon as you spray it on, the brush glides easily through the toughest tangles. The added benefits is it also adds extra conditioning to the hair. Many children’s detanglers contain toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde and lye. This one contains nothing harmful or artificial and can safely be used on your children. A 4 ounce bottle is $11.50 (very worth it) and the larger 12 ounce is $18.71. It can last a while if you don’t overdo it, which I recommend because too much may make your hair oily. Here’s a few of the ingredients:
- Vitamin B
- Organic Cranberry
I primarily focused on the hair care products for this review, but I also used this baby cream and guess what, it’s not just for babies! It also has that wonderful clean scent and is so full of lovely ingredients for baby and you, such as:
- Coconut Oil
The coconut oil moisturizes gently and the zinc and calendula have a calming effect. It couldn’t’ be more perfect for baby’s painful diaper rashes. It absorbs quickly and really helps to heal skin irritations. Now I don’t have a baby, but I used it on myself, especially when I had a rash from shaving on my legs. I used it for a few days and it really calmed the burning and reduced the bumps. This is a great cream for baby, mom, and dad too!
I really liked these products and would not hesitate to buy them for myself and my future kids! I’ve done many hair care reviews and liked the products I reviewed, but not often do I adore them so much that I will repurchase for myself. They are not just a haircare and baby cream company. They also carry sunscreen I want to try, other products for babies, products for kids and teens, and a new Tahitian Collection, including hair oil, and spf. What a way to get a bit of the islands into your day to day life! You can purchase the products online or in select stores around the world. Check out their website and read some of their testimonials…all I can say is, thanks, Original Sprout for caring about what you put into your products and making products that really work!
