Hi! I have two posts planned for you tonight and they’ll be coming through one right after the other, so keep an eye out!
You may or may not be surprised to know this, but I really love HAIR! Not collecting or patting it (thank goodness lol!), but rather hair styles, hair magazines, and so forth. These days I tend to follow hair styles and trends on the internet, as the magazines are so expensive!
As such, it has been a real pleasure to have the chance to try a selection of products from Organix‘ new range: Awapuhi Ginger.
What is Awapuhi Ginger?
It’s a form of ginger that grows naturally in many tropical places, including Hawaii, and is said to have hair care as well as medicinal properties (but don’t eat the shampoo lol!). Organix claim that this ingredient is a “Hawaiian beauty secret” and helps to mend damaged hair and soften the hair strands.
I have used Organix products in the past and have found them good; they don’t weigh my hair down nor leave it too frizzy. Other bonuses are that they are paraben and sulphate free; and Organix don’t test on animals. However, different ranges in the Organix brand have different properties, so you need to ensure you choose the one that’s right for your needs.
How did I go?
I have been regularly using the Shampoo* (RRP $19.95 AUD), Conditioner* (RRP $19.95) and Dry Styling Oil* (only once a week due to my hair type; it’s thick but fine textured! RRP $24.99). The Shampoo is different to others I’ve tried from this brand; it almost looks like conditioner in that it is opaque and very creamy to apply. It smells absolutely divine – not like ginger (which is lucky as I cannot stand ginger, and am unsure why!) – but rather a floral and oceanic scent blended together. Flowers on the beach? The Conditioner is slightly heavier in texture and you leave that one on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.
After washing and blow drying my hair, there are much fewer fly-aways and it seems less fluffy overall haha! However, after a few weeks of use I am noticing that the high silicone content in the Shampoo/Conditioner duo is gradually starting to weigh down the hair. As such I’d recommend alternating use of the Shampoo and Conditioner with silicone free products so that you avoid too much product buildup. I have found that I have not had this issue when using their Coconut range or their Mocha range (that smelt sooo good -I don’t know if they make that one any more!).
The Oil is very light in texture and can be applied to damp or dry hair before styling, or on dry hair to tame fly-aways. I have been using it to tame fly-aways, after styling, as I prefer to use a heat protectant spray on my damp hair. I’ve found it to perform well but not any better than similar products I’ve tried.
So – if you have dry, processed and brittle hair that needs some love, try out the Shampoo and Conditioner! If you are really into the unique fragrance of the range, pick up the oil too. Organix can be found at Coles and Woolworths supermarkets as well as select chemists throughout Australia.
Let’s hit the beach!
Shampoo & Conditioner Beautiful Rating 8/10: quality 4/5 (just remember to alternate use with silicone free products) and value 4/5. A little goes a long way; I used 10 cent piece amounts in my hair!
Dry Styling Oil Beautiful Rating 6/10 – quality 3/5, value 3/5 = Average. There is nothing wrong with this product but it just doesn’t stand out to me, I’m afraid!
Have you tried Organix? Thoughts?
