ORS Shealicious Cleansing Balm Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo REVIEW

*This product was sent to me for review purposes only. All opinions are my own.*

How ORS Describes the product

This ultra-hydrating cleansing balm is blended with shea butter and natural coconut oil. Shea butter comes from the nut of the African Karita Shea tree. Shea butter is rich in vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids. Coconut oil is hailed for its moisturizing and softening properties. It is the perfect ingredient as it is packed full of nutrients.

My opinion 

           I received  ORS Shealicious Cleansing Balm Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo  sometimes last year. I am not a big fan of sulfate free-shampoos. I would rather pre-poo my hair instead of buying an expensive sulfate-free shampoo,  because most of them create a lot of bubbles, but leave the hair feeling coated without getting the job done. I was surprised at how much product build-up this sulfate-free shampoo was able to remove from my hair. I think it lathers well enough as a sulfate-free shampoo. The most amazing thing is that it left my hair feeling soft and manageable. I was able to go from shampooing my hair to deep conditioning it without using a comb in between. Does the product contain real coconut oil? Yes. The product contains Cocos nucifera. It also contains Cocamide mea, which is derived from the fatty acids of coconut and monoethanolamine. ORS Shealicious Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo has a sweet coconut scent. I love the packaging and the pump dispenser.

  • Moisturizing
  • Lathers well
  • Nicely packaged
  •  I had to use a lot to get the hair clean.

 The bottom line
              You should invest in this product only if you wash your hair pretty often. I think a clarifying shampoo should be used at least once a month when using this product,  because I really don't feel that my hair was left squeaky clean. I don't like the fact that I had to use so much to get my scalp looking and feeling clean. My other problem is that this product contains hydrolyzed wheat protein, which leaves my scalp feeling  itchy when I use it. I am probably sensitive to this kind of protein. If you are looking for a mild shampoo, I think this one is very good.
