Beauty Blast: Shampoo and Conditioner from Sebamed

I haven’t switched up my shampoo and conditioner in awhile, probably not since my this review.  However, thanks to my lovely preggo hormones, my hair was having some issues, despite the fact I’ve kept the same routine for months.  While I am experiencing a longer and fuller hair that pregnant woman boast about, I was also getting something that isn’t so nice – a drier scalp.  That’s why when the people at Sebamed reached out to me to try out their shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for normal to dry hair I was eager to do so!  What attracted me was not so much that it was made for dry hair (which meant that it promised the moisture my curls always need) but it has a pH balance of 5.5 that would restore my scalp to the natural (and itch free) state that it needs to be healthy.

So how did these products hold up after a few weeks of use?

Shampoo

Sebamed Everyday Shampoo Normal to Dry Hair

This clear-looking shampoo promises to gently cleanse hair without stripping it of it’s natural oils so it can retain moisture and give great volume.  With no parabens, this mild cleanser is supposed to great for daily use.  One thing I noticed as soon as I lathered up my hair was that this product has to have sulfates in it because it only took a little bit to cover all of my hair.  I looked at the ingredients and sure enough, they were there which left me a little disappointed.  I try to stay away from products with those type of ingredients.  As for getting my hair clean, it definitely did the job, though it did feel a little dry for my taste.  While it wasn’t the greatest thing for my hair, my scalp loved it!  The dryness and itchiness I was experiencing practically went away and just to make sure it wasn’t my imagination, I went back to my regular shampoo and immediately noticed the difference.  So this shampoo was a definite toss up – while it wasn’t the greatest thing for my hair, it was perfect for my scalp.

Conditioner

Sebamed Repair Conditioner

As with the shampoo, this product also aims to maintain the healthy pH balance of your scalp with a conditioning complex of Vitamin B5, avocado oil and plant extracts.  Unlike the shampoo though, the conditioner itself isn’t as thick and as a result I had to use a lot of it to cover all of my hair.  Because I only detangle my hair in the shower I always look to see if a conditioner has enough slip for me to do so and this one does.  I was actually a bit surprised given the product itself wasn’t as thick as I like my conditioners to be.  Once rinsed out my hair felt soft and not as dry as it did after shampooing though I really wasn’t as wowed as I wanted to.  If I had my choice between the two, I would definitely go with the shampoo just because it solved a major hair problem I’ve been having.

Have you tried any Sebamed products?

  2. I haven’t heard of this brand before, like Michelle above. I am always looking for a good shampoo – for some reason, it’s extremely difficult to find a shampoo in local stores (instead of online) for oily hair. It’s like nearly impossible. I remember when it used to be easier…sigh…
