Looking for a natural shampoo that actually cleanses? What about a natural conditioner that will work hard at conditioning your hair? Or are you just after a sweet smelling shampoo & conditioner that will leave your mane attracting honey bees for days?
Look no further. I have found it for you! This is my review of the Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose shampoo and conditioner. I've been using it for several months now, since the start of this year. I discovered this product browsing the Aubrey Organics Australian website and was planning on ordering just soap, but succumbed to the free shipping offer if $75 or more was spent. So I hastily added the Honey Suckle Rose conditioner (as I had plenty of shampoo at home) along with a few other items and patiently awaited my order.
One sniff basically sold me. I didn't even try it on my hair before I decided that I was in love with it, the conditioner just smelt so wonderful! So soft, sweet and feminine. Once my regular shampoo ran out, I went back online to order the Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose Shampoo but the website was undergoing maintenance. I waited. And waited. I managed to snag free samples of shampoo during my wait, but several weeks later the website was still apparently getting maintenance done. So, frustrated, I finally found another website that stocks this product, along with basically the whole Aubrey Organics range. This is where I found it: www.innerglow.com.au.

If you're not familiar with natural shampoos, then you'll probably really hate them until you get used to them. Because they don't contain any chemical foaming agents, they are quite runny in consistency and don't produce much lather at all. It's no different for this shampoo. However, I like to double wash because the second time I use it, it produces quite a nice lather! I feel that it cleanses better when it foams up and because the first wash barely produces anything, the second wash more than makes up for it. I'm not sure why a lather is formed the second time around, but I'm glad it does as it makes my hair feel like it's cleaner. It does not dry out my hair at all, in fact, I believe that this has helped my hair become more softer and moisturised. The scent is very soft and floral, but not grandma floral. It's very delicate and sweet. Smells very much like herbs mixed with honey suckle!

My favourite hair conditioner OF ALL TIME. This stuff has stolen my heart and become a holy grail! Not only does it smell absolutely amazing (very similar to the shampoo, but much more sweeter), it actually does a fantastic job and keeping my tresses moisturised and manageable. Some reviews have said that it is way too "oily" and makes the hair really slippery, and to some extent that is true. But if you have extremely dry, frizzy hair like myself, it's actually a good thing. Once you've rinsed it out thoroughly, it feels so wonderfully soft and light. My hair just drinks it up. The honey suckle rose range IS designed for very dry, brittle hair so if you have normal or oily hair, it may not work for you.
Let me tell you a little secret: I used this range on both my boys and they have normal hair. It does not leave their hair oily at all. They both have gorgeous, easily maintained hair. So will it work for everybody? Maybe, if you can get used to how it feels the first few times. But I'll leave that up to you to decide. Most conditioners say to only apply to the lengths of the hair, but with this conditioner, I have no problems rubbing it all over, even letting it sit on my scalp. As "slippery" as it feels, it really does not leave my hair oily whatsoever. Just light, soft and moisturised. For me, it is not greasy... I cannot stress that enough!
For myself and my family, it works wonders. Both the shampoo and conditioner last a long time (a little goes a long way) and at roughly $20 AUD per bottle (for 325ml), it works out to be a reasonably priced natural product. As long as they keep making these, I'll keep buying them and using them religiously because it is a fantastic range!
