Review: YL Lavender Mint Daily Shampoo
After nearly finishing my first bottle of Young Living Essential Oils’ Lavender Mint Daily Shampoo I am officially ready to share my review about it.
This one product for me was a roller coaster of impressions…. from love at first smell to …. my hair HATES this product…. to I love this smell so much and how it feels that I want to use it still – jut not on my hair.
Everyone is different, but for me, I could not get this shampoo to work with my hair. It honestly felt that my hair was covered in waxy thick oil after shampooing – any my hair felt light, dry and clean before getting into the shower ! I tried washing multiple times in a row. I tried washing only once. I tried avoiding all other products for a week. I tried morning VS night. It was so bad I had to wash my hair multiple times in a row with another non-healthy shampoo product to get my hair to not stick heavily to my head and get it soft and silky again.
I wasn’t happy and didn’t want to waste my money. I almost called up Young Living to return it. However, I was so in love with it’s AMAZING aroma of lavender and mint… and how good it felt to use in the shower that I started using it as a body wash. I LOVE IT as a body wash. So much in fact, I’ll actually buy this product again!! I have heard that other people adore this as a shampoo – perhaps it depends on your hair and other biological factors.
A tiny bit on a washcloth or bath pouf goes a huge way. Great lather, lasts a long time, cleans excellently and best of all it’s invigorating on your skin and really wakes you up. That ‘oily-waxy’ feeling was not present on my skin like it was on my hair.
