How I Used This Product:

[1]   To shampoo after prepooing as a first lather.
[2]   To shampoo after ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo as a second lather.

::The Assessment::
This was the first shampoo I purchased when I started my healthy hair journey in June 2012. I recently started to use it again to remember why I liked this product so much before. It’s very moisturizing but what I did realize now is, it’s not as moisturizing as the Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo.  It lathers very well and smells amazing. You don’t need a lot to lather and it can last up to 4 months.  I believe in a shampoo that lathers so this is a plus for me.  It has a creamy texture which isn't thick or running as you can see in the picture above. Rinsing out doesn't pose a problem.

It's a pale yellow in colour and It does a great job in getting my hair clean. My hair doesn't feel stripped at all.  There are 3 awesome penetrating oil of Olive oil, Coconut Oil and Avocado Oil.  *Bonus* Its sulfate free  

Overall this is a great shampoo and I really like it, but would repurchase? Yes, but only as a second option if I can't get my hands on Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo first. This product is available at most beauty supply stores in Barbados but the price may range.

Have you used the Elasta QP Crème Conditioning Shampoo & What are your thoughts on it?

  1. I've made the same experience with this. It's a nice shampoo but it couldn't concur with the creme if nature shan oil. The only shampoo I live a little more than the con is the ors creamy aloe because for a chelating/clarifying shampoo its so gentle on my hair

    1. I totally agree Bebe! I have mixed results with ORS, sometimes it strips my hair other times it doesn't but it all depends on what I prepoo with. If my memory serves me correct when I Prepoo with oils my hair doesn't feel stripped.

  2. Been using the Creme of Nature conditioning and detangling shampoo since I begun my journey and have only been trying to get the CON argan oil shampoo after falling desperately in love with the CON Intensive Conditioner......products are so scarce here. Seen this a few times but had no idea it was sulfate free....may opt for it instead since my search a whole year has taken me no where.

  3. I could tell by looking at it that it was moisturizing. It looks a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner.
