Unboxing and Trying The NEW OGX Orchid Shampoo + Hair Conditioner

            Hello beautiful people! I am so sorry I have not been blogging much. I did not lose interest in blogging. It's just that I have been very busy. I will write a separate post to let you know what's been going on in my life. I am currently rearranging my schedule so I can blog more often. Today is all about OGX and their new product line. Due to my affiliation with the OGX brand, I sometimes feature their products here on the blog. But you are not obligated to buy any of these products. My goal is to try these products and be able to determine if they will work for your hair type. The new OGX Orchid line is all about protecting your hair color. Whether you swim in the pool a lot, or spend a lot of time in the sun, these products promise to slow down fading and provide moisture to your hair. If your hair loves orchid or rapeseed oil, your hair will benefit from these products. The box that I received contains the Orchid shampoo and conditioner, their Lavender Platinum oil from a different line, and their Shea soft and smooth hair butter, which can be used as a leave-in or rinse out.

              What I find appealing about the OGX brand is their way of challenging you to  embrace your natural beauty and have fun with your hair. This summer they want you to share your hair journey with them for a chance to win a year of OGX hair products for free. All you have to do is post a picture of your hair journey on Instagram with the #OGXhairtruths. I receive two to 3 boxes of OGX hair product a year. And so far I have been satisfied with most of their hair products. So, don't miss the opportunity to get free hair products.

              The Orchid line smells very flowery. It contains Accai Berry extract and a bunch of other antioxidants. Both the shampoo and conditioner are sulfate-free. Like mentioned above, these products contain UVA/UVB to help protect your natural or artificial hair color.

            I am not really the right person to try these products because I have no problem with color fading. My daughter is a swimmer. I will definitely try these products on her hair to see if the reddish color on her hair will go away or stay protected by the produts. Her hair becomes brown-ish red every summer, although her natural hair color is black. I know it has to do with her spending a lot of time in the pool and the sun. I also know I should use sunscreen on her hair, but I am imperfect like you and do forget to do it.
             I did use all the products on my hair, but was not impressed with the results. The shampoo was not very moisturizing on my kinky hair. My hair did not feel clean after I used it either. So if you need immediate moisture, this shampoo is not for you. The conditioner was okay. My hair was slightly moisturized after using it. Both products smell divine and I love the packaging.  But the truth is, they were not formulated for my hair type. It is worth mentioning that my hair felt stronger after using the hair butter, which I used as a rinse out. The Lavender oil exceeded my expectations. I loved the shine and the softness after using it.

            Don't forget to enter the #contest on Instagram for a chance to win free products. Also check out the OGX website to find out which hair products are best for your hair type.

  1. I hate that these products did not work for you, Nerline. I haven't tried these particular products, but there are many in the line that I love using. I might have to shoot my shot over on Instagram to see if I can win some hair care products! Thanks for sharing your honest opinions and thorough review with us, Nerline. BTW, your hair is gorgeous! I love this style on you.

    1. Thanks for the support, Dre! This is the first time their products did not work for me. Thank you!

  2. Wow, you had the same results with this brand as I did. I did not feel that their coconut milk conditioner did anything for me, except tangle my hair even more. Like you said the frangrance is wonderful, but I found the product to be less then satifying!
    Have a great weekend coming up!
