My posts have been pretty heavy and race related lately, and even though those are the posts I enjoy writing the most, balance is key.
As you know I’m currently figuring out what products are the best for my hair. I’m constantly trying new products and constantly learning new things about natural hair care.
I featured this shampoo and conditioner in my High Porosity Wishlist. Once I found out that my hair porosity is high, I made a conscious effort to find products that will help with moisture. I went to Beauty by Zara and purchased a few of products from my ‘High Porosity Wishlist’ and some other products that I’ve had my eyes on.
So I thought it would be good if I shared my thoughts on the ElastaQP Creme Conditioning Shampoo and ElastaQP Intense Fortifying Hair Conditioning Treatment. I’ve only used these products once so this is more of a first impressions review.
Before using this shampoo I did, massage olive oil into my hair and I let it sit for an hour or two. I don’t know if that changes my feelings towards this shampoo, but I thought I’d add that little bit of information in.
The shampoo is described as an “ultra-rich, ultra-concentrated, gentle cleansing formula that gives maximum moisture to dry, fragile, damaged hair”.
I have yet to find a conditioner that doesn’t make my hair feel dry. It’s so frustrating. I was so confused when I used the conditioner, I had to double check the bottle to make sure I didn’t shampoo with the conditioner, because my hair just felt way too dry after the first rinse. I normally shampoo twice and condition twice as well. After the first rinse with this condition I questioned if I should do a second one. I could feel my hair getting dryer as I was rinsing it out.
