Shielo Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner- reviewed and recommended

Too dull, too dry, too frizzy - a visit to get my hair cut always yields a truthful observation from my hair stylist.  Imagine my surprise when at my most recent visit her first words to me were ‘your hair looks good, what have you been doing different’? Actually, there was a small change. I had started using Shielo Hydrate Shampoo ($22) and Hydrate Vibrancy Conditioner ($18) three days prior.

With the first use I found that a little goes a long way.  Dispensing an amount only the size of a dime for my short locks (about 2 ½ inches on top), I quickly generated a head full of lather that easily rinsed out. I found the light, somewhat tropical aroma quite pleasant, doesn’t linger and is very gender friendly.

The conditioner has a very light consistency and I didn’t expect it to actually do much, but it performed quite well. I applied it in the shower after shampooing and left it on for the duration of the shower.  It rinsed out very easily and has the same fragrance as the shampoo. I normally use a conditioner every day and I like that although this one is lightweight, it conditions well and doesn’t build up.

After finishing the sample sizes I received, I can say that both products did nice things for my hair. My scalp is normal (neither oily nor dry) and has remained so while using Shielo. The dullness has been replaced with a nice bit of a shine and my hair also doesn’t feel as dry and crunchy as before. Also to like are formulas are concentrated, sulfate free and infused with botanicals, cruelty free and they use post-consumer recycled packaging.

    I have tried so many different shampoos and conditioners that claim to work and haven't but the reviews on these products have been great so I would love to try it out. How can I get some free samples to give it a try before I buy?

    I have tried numerous natural and organic shampoo and conditioner products on my hair and have not had any outstanding results. So, I would be very happy to try this product.

    I have very long blond hair so it is important that I use very good products on my hair. I would love to sample this brand and compare it to the Pureology Nano Works Shampoo and the WEN Fig Cleansing Conditioner that I have been using and have been in love with for the past year. Thanks for your consideration.

    I am looking for a new shampoo and/or conditioner to try and would be glad to sample these and report back. The ends of my hair are quite dry as I have just colored my hair and possibly left the solution on too long :(

    I have been using DermOrganic products on my naturally wavy, frizz-prone hair. Even used daily the products don't dry my hair. But I am always up for trying new products and passing along my opinions. I would love to try Shielo.

    Junko - my hair has just always been dry, although I have tried tons of shampoos and conditioners over time. Paul Mitchell Awapuhi has been my latest try prior to the Shielo and it did just ok.

    Mark, What had you been using prior to Shielo that was making your hair dry and crunchy?
