Organix Line to Remove Buildup

jlb276jlb276 Registered Users Posts: 19
I have 3B hair that apparently has some build up which needs to be removed. I prefer sulfate free, so I'm wondering if anyone has used the Organix Line at all? They have a ton of products, but I'm looking at the coconut shampoo.

Any insight?

    Hello there,

    I used the organix line but only the shea butter and the coconut. To me, the shampoos was more moisturizing and got my hair clean without it feeling stripped. But like most moisturizing shampoos it can buildup over time. I am sure if you wanted to add a little baking soda to it it would help remove buildup.

    I no longer use the organix shampoo because i replaced it with Kinky Curly. Now their shampoo sulfate -free and IMHO removes ALL traces of buildup and has more natural ingredients in it. :)

    Hey,

    Thanks for your advice. I basically just want to use something to remove build up and then move on to something else. I used the moroccanoil line which has silicones & may be the reason why my hair has been unmanageable recently. Organix looks to be sulfate & silicone free.

    A clarifying shampoo has minimal ingredients and is clear. I highly recommend Neutrogena Anti-Residue. A lot of people here like Suave clarifying shampoo. Organix is not an ideal option for clarifying.

    If you're looking for sulfate free, Yes To Cucumbers is good too.

    Oh yes I completely forgot about Neutagena Anti-Residue shampoo!! This stuff was so good at removing everything from my hair and scalp. The real deal. :)

    I'm also not sure which Organix shampoo you'd use, but they've started putting silicones in the shampoos. They didn't use to, if I remember correctly.

    I'll second everything Sixelamy said already. She's spot on.

    Beyond that, I think most, if not all the Organix (OGX) shampoos have silicones, although some of them may be water soluble. Check bottles on the ground to confirm, but Ulta's website says Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk shampoo has dimethicone copolyol, which is water soluble. It also has 2 polyquats, which can cause buildup for some. Ulta's ingredients list for Organix Coconut Water shampoo shows no silicones, but does have polyquats. Both have Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, which is a fairly harsh cleansing ingredient, basically an unrefined form of a sulfate and comparable to sulfate in terms of being able to strip and dry hair and scalp. Neither would be my first choice for clarifying and buildup removal, especially if I suspected anything like heavy buildup or a polyquat issue.

    I have and use the Suave clarifying. It's cheap and does the job.
