Recently, I went out on a limb and switched up my shampoo routine. A friend of mine gave me a bottle of Sachajuan’s Hair Cleansing Cream and begged me to try it. The Swedish brand is known for their innovative approach to haircare, so I knew I was in for a treat. I’m typically pretty boring when it comes to my shampoo and conditioner — I’d rather splurge on skincare and go drugstore for hair — but this made me really rethink.
After a quick Google, I found that girls were raving about the product and how unique it made their hair feel. They said the first few days of use left their locks a tad greasy, but once their scalp adjusted, their hair was squeaky clean and perfectly textured. I knew I had to get involved.
I finally took the plunge about a week ago. The first wash was definitely strange, because there isn’t the foaming effect you get from typical shampoos. My hair is also super thick, so I was worried I wasn’t getting full coverage. But, I carried on. Once I got out of the shower, my hair smelled unbelievably good and felt super clean. Once I gave it a good blow dry, it was soft and voluminous, like I had just gotten a professional treatment. I had people stopping me the next day to ask if something was different!
As I continued using, the greasiness did subside and I was left with that perfect French girl hair texture. It was perfectly undone, but still had a nice and healthy shine to it.
If you are in a shampoo rut, this is your fix. Have you tried this product at all? Let us know in the comments!
