Guest Review: Liz Earle Haircare …on Afro Hair.

With my hair currently in braids, I called on the help of Tobi, one half of fashion blogging duo, Style by Queens to try out the new haircare range by Liz Earle.
The new Liz Earle haircare range has been six years in the making with a breakthrough cleansing agent which derives from coconut. The range consists of one shampoo for all hair types and three conditioners – normal, oily and dry/damaged.
Read on to see what Tobi thought of the products she tried.

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo for All Hair Types.

Open opening the shampoo I was welcomed by a soft citrus fragrance, which I actually found quite refreshing. The Botanical Shine Shampoo boasts a creamy lather that performs and feels like a professional shampoo. I can concur that it quickly worked into a creamy lather. 

Nonetheless, I cannot say that the shampoo felt overwhelmingly professional. After using the shampoo my hair did not feel dramatically different to my usual wash. However on the plus side my hair did not feel brittle or dry proving that the Botanical Shine Shampoo can be used on all hair types.

Botanical Shine Conditioner for Dry and Damaged Hair.

Immediately I loved the smell of this shea butter based product, reminiscent of an organic spa treatment product. Whilst massaging in the conditioner my hair felt silky and soft, which is what I would expect from a good conditioner for afro hair. After using the product my hair was soft, but perhaps not as soft as I would have liked it to be, bearing in mind I have high standards when it comes to the texture of my hair. 

All in all I liked the conditioner but I was not blown away in comparison with my regular conditioner. I feel that my hair lost a bit of its normal shine, which was a bit disappointing seeing as I liked the feel of the conditioner during the application process.

Consequently I can confidently say that I shall  be using the shampoo again but possibly not the conditioner.

    I find that the SLS shampoos are only “worth my time” if I straighten my hair. If I leave it curly, I really can't tell the difference. It's only when I traighten it that it feels a lot softer, smoother and generally healthier.
