My hairdresser, the talented and handsome Greg Ruggeri, has decided to grow my hair. I suppose that I had some say in the matter but mane confidence has never been one of my strong points. Now I’ve found that here’s nothing like wavy, past-shoulder length color treated hair to make shampoo and conditioner a priority. I don’t want chemicals, but I do want results (as a mentioned in a recent post on Revita, a bad shampoo can leave me looking like Janis Joplin no matter how much I try to channel my inner Jennifer Aniston). So I am happy to have found the Seaweed Bath Co  and while its Wildly Natural Seaweed Argan Shampoo ($16.89 for 12fl oz) is not the Holy Grail it deserves to be recommended for a number of reasons

First, it cleans hair without being too drying nor too heavy. My version (which was a free sample) has a nice orangy smell and it works up a decent lather. It is suitable for color treated hair and it certainly is being kind to mine. The natural ingredients in Wildly Natural Seaweed Argan Shampoo include several that are helpful for maintaining hair health.

Bladderwrack, the Seaweed Bath Co’s signature ingredient, is a seaweed that has a high amount of vitamin C and something called alginic acid, which is insoluble in water and swells by absorbing water up to 100 times its weight. This prevention of water loss is thought to be behind bladderwrack’s ability to prevent skin irritation. This shampoo also has fatty acid rich argan oil, anti-inflammatory aloe and vitamin B5.

I haven’t yet tried the Seaweed Bath Co’s conditioner (I have been sticking with Shielo’s for the time being). However, the Seaweed Bath Co looks worth getting to know, especially if you suffer from dry, flaking and scaling skin.  The founder, Adam Grossman, is a long-time psoriasis sufferer, who created his seaweed-based skin and hair products to take control of his own irritated skin without the use of prescribed medications or harsh chemicals.

Ingredients: Aqua (water), decyl glucoside, Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil with Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack seaweed) extract, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, vegetable glycerin, Argania spinosa (argan) oil, dl-Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), Aloe barbadensis (aloe), Tocopherol (natural vitamin E), potassium sorbate, silver dihydrogen citrate, citric acid, Citrus sinensis (orange) essential oil, Zingiber officinalis (ginger) essential oil.

    Hi Junko! I've used Schwartzkopf's leave-in conditioner ever since I went to Sydney and my flatiron defaulted to the hottest setting, thus, sizzling my hair in a single swipe. I love it. I use the one for color treated hair and it's here: . Wow, reading my comment, I wonder how you made any sense of it! My brain really took a hit when I wrote it yesterday, huh. Peace ~jk

    Julie Kay,
    Which Schwartzkopf conditioner do you use? I'd like to give it a try. My sister-in-law loves the L'anza Moisture Series so I think I'll buy the Neem oil and bring it to her when we go to Germany over the holiday's. Thanks so much for the recommends!

    How long do you intend growing your hair, Marta? Are you going to experiment with styles (flatironing to straight, for instance) or keep your lovely waves and simply go longer?

    I myself am keenly vain about my hair. Perhaps even more so than my face. I just switched from Alterna's Bamboo's line to EVO. I use The Therapist shampoo and Ritual Salvation conditioner. EVO has a product called End Doctor which is a smoothing sealant and I really like when humidity bulks out my hair giving me an unwanted balloon look. I use a pinch rubbed between my hands and smoothed down on my hair- instant behavior! EVO also has the best (for me) dry shampoo I've ever tried. I'm still using Shielo's leave-in conditioner, but am not convinced it's better than Schwartzkopf which I may go back to when the Shielo is gone. I also use neem oil in place of Mororccanoil, and this I can with confidence I do like better- it's made by L'anza. I'm TRYing to keep up my discipline in using Osmotics FNS follicle serum that I mix with a dab of Emu oil nightly around my forehead hairline. When I keep it up, I do see results.

    That's where my 60-year-old hair is at these days. Peace ~jk
