When it comes to hair care I like to keep it very minimal, meaning shampoo and conditioner, that’s it. Might sound easy, however finding natural and effective hair care products can be hard, and until now I hadn’t found my perfect duo, but I’m so happy to say that Josh Rosebrook has won my heart! I have fine hair that can get oily at the roots but the ends stay normal/dry, so I look for a shampoo that will have a nice balance between being clarifying, but not too stripping and I prefer conditioners that aren’t too heavy. The Josh Rosebrook Balance range is exactly that. The special blend of ingredients (natural of course) aid in decreasing scalp oils and give hair a boost of volume, all from natural plant synergy.
Both of these products have a sweet, citrus scent, which is great when you need a little pick-me-up, especially in the mornings! The Balance shampoo cleanses my hair with the perfect balance of clarifying the scalp, but not so cleansing that it feels like it’s stripping and turning my hair strands into hay. Unlike traditional shampoos, this one doesn’t provide too much lather, but don’t be fooled – it’s still providing your scalp with a deep cleanse and nourishment. My only complaint (and I can’t really even call it that, because the product is still so worth it) is that you really do have to follow the directions and cleanse your hair in sections. The directions say to separate the hair into four sections: front, two sides, and back. Because of this, I go through about double what I would of a normal shampoo, and spend a lot longer in the shower actually washing my hair. But, If you don’t scrub and you don’t break your hair into smaller chunks, it won’t clean as well. Believe me, I tried, and ended up a stringy, greasy mess. But follow the instructions, and you’ll LOVE the results. As for the Balance conditioner, it is the perfect compliment to the shampoo. With ingredients like, shea butter and meadowfoam, it leaves my hair feeling soft and silky but never weighed down. The biggest test for me with conditioner is how long I can go between washes and I’m happy to report that it really lives up to its promise: it keeps my hair from getting oily, longer. Previously I could only go two days on a single hair wash—with the Balance shampoo, I can go four days before it needs to be washed again, which is a big win for any girl with a tendency to get oily. You cannot imagine how overjoyed I am. I really can’t say enough about these two! If you’re looking to replace your conventional hair care with something natural or haven’t found a green option that works well yet, I would definitely give Josh Rosebrook's duo a try. He also has a Nourish formula which is formulated for all hair textures with normal to dry hair and scalp conditions.
