Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo

swtndspcyswtndspcy Posts: 692Registered Users
So, I have been searching for a sulphate free shampoo, but all the ones readily available in my area don't have the greatest smell!
I found Organix Coconut Milk shampoo, it smells amazing.. but has a water soluble 'cone.
Will this make a big difference?
I have an aversion to anything that would make my hair smell funny!!

    I hear you about the smells me too. I am using some products from the Devacurl line and it's driving me insane because I don't like the smell....but it works for my hair so far....

    Here are the ingredients. Maybe the girls will help you figure it out! I do see some 'cones in it, don't know about water soluble ones...

    Ingredients:

    DI Water (aqua) - purified water that has had the mineral ions removed. No health risks noted that I could find.

    Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate - moderate hazard (3). It is potentially linked to contamination concerns that are associated with cancer among other health risks.

    Cocamidopropyl Betaine - moderate hazard (5). It is potentially linked to contamination concerns that are associated with cancer among other health risks.

    Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine - low hazard (0)

    Glycol Distearate - low hazard (1)

    Dimethicone Copolyol - low hazard (0)

    Cetyl Alcohol - low hazard (1)

    Cocamide DEA - Moderate hazard (6), and has been linked to health risks such as cancer.

    Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride - low hazard (1)

    Polyquaternium-11 - low hazard (0)

    Panthenol - low hazard (2)

    DMDM Hydantoin - high hazard (7-9). noting contamination concerns with formaldehyde among other health risks. Formaldehyde has been linked to cancer among other serious health risks.

    Silk Amino Complex - low hazard (0)

    Coconut Milk - low hazard (0)

    Egg White Protein - hazard rating not listed.

    Coconut Oil - hazard rating not listed.

    Tocopheryl Acetate - moderate hazard (4)

    I am having a hard time finding affordable CG products here in general! I finally found that my local Meijer has an oraganic hair care section, and a few of them smelled OK. Giovanni and the Renpure lines have an OK smell. But not great. Yes to cucumbers smelled WAAAY to salad like. My husband likes it when my hair smells good. And he loves the smell of coconut.

    I am even thinking of buying the stuff online to just make my own!! I don't really love to make my own stuff, but have done it. I am going to try to make FSG today, but IDK how well it work out. Not because I don't have confidence in my cooking abilities, but because of my health problems I get tired so easily that I don't know if making this on a regular basis will be something I can do! Anyway, while looking around at some sites for EO's (also something I can't buy here!) I saw some places have the stuff to make your own shampoos and conditioners, and saw some coconut fragrance oil. Who knows, if the CG routine works well for my hair it may be worth it to invest in making my own!

    That sounds like a neat project. I have come across threads of the girls making their own FSG and read really good things about it....me still learning and unlike you, I don't have the time to do it on my own, let alone "cooking" ability! LOL :study:

    I found this, hope it helps! And keep us posted, I'd like to try to make it someday :hello2:

    Bring water and flax seeds to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes. Strain and keep it in the fridge for up to a week. :toothy7:Some people add other things, EO, Aloe, etc. But I just use the above recipe.
