Spring cleaning. We usually think of the concept when it comes to our homes, but this is a good time of year to detox your hair, too! Even if you haven’t been using a lot of styling product during the pandemic, you’re likely to have been heaping on the hair oils, leave-in conditioners, deep conditioning masks. Helpful, but even those “good for you” steps leave build-up and film. Not only does build-up weigh down your style and make it look dull, but it prevents your hair from being able to absorb them — you start throwing on more and more, in a vicious cycle.
A time-tested method to clarify and detox your hair is washing with apple cider vinegar. But don’t do as I used to, keeping a big glass bottle in the bathroom. That is a recipe for disaster! Pura D’Or has combined apple cider vinegar, along with other beneficial ingredients, to create Apple Cider Vinegar Thin2Thick Shampoo and also, Conditioner. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
Pura D’Or is a family-owned business that sources its ingredients — wild-crafted or organic whenever possible — from all over the world. Everything is made in the good ol’ USA, putting all of their products through third party clinical trials for efficacy.
The shampoo is described as having the scent of apples and lavender. I get more apple cider vinegar/lemon/lavender, fresh and pleasing. You apply it a little differently than most shampoos, letting it sink in for 2 minutes before rinsing. It has a thick lather and rinses away very clean.
Back when I was younger, I collected and read many books on herbs and making things with them. The shampoo features many ingredients that are known among herbal experts and indigenous folk to be traditionally great for hair: castor oil, nettles, lavender, biotin, geranium oil, tea tree oil, cedar bark oil.
With the conditioner, you also leave it in for 2 minutes. It pumps out in a rich cream consistency. It has the same fruity/fresh scent of the shampoo, with additional ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil and several vitamins. It is a lighter weight conditioner. There is no silicone or mineral oil in it
Together, they give back the bounce to your hair and lots of shine. All genders will enjoy this product.
