Sans Ceutiucals Nourishing Hair Hydratant
($41) and Nourishing Hair Wash
($38) could NOT be more elegantly packaged, scented (slightly citrus, slightly almond-ish), and pleasing. Unless you have treated/highlighted hair (but otherwise quite normal) as I do, that is… I was so disappointed because I had such high hopes.
Unfortunately, this product was way too drying for my normal hair. Since using it, I’ve had to apply leave-in conditioners and slather on hair oils to address the drying effects. I think for someone with truly normal and untreated hair (possibly on the dry side), this duo would work perfectly. I used them for 10 days, washing every other day at home, (so I know the water hardness/softness), which may have been too much, but that's my normal routine.
Their ethos/ethic is superb and their list of ingredients couldn't be better, I was so looking forward to trying them. They're designed for my kind of hair, but didn't really work for me. Still, I love everything about this company - the non-leeching plastic containers (recycle-able, of course), the very chic graphics... I plan on keeping them in the guest shower to see how friends and family like them.
Overall, although they didn’t work for me I would recommend that everyone try them out and judge for themselves!
