“Indulge your senses with this exclusive blend of coconut milk to nourish your hair, while ultra whipped egg white proteins add strength and elasticity, along with weightless coconut oils to add hydration and balance.”Hi ladies! isn’t that description enough to make you want to purchase without a second thought? Well, I took a chance based on that poetic little sentence and definitely do not regret it! I’ve had my eye on the Organix (or OGX) range for a while now, mostly because I’m a sucker for packaging and I love the design of these bottles… clever marketing strikes again! Drawn to these by the ‘Organic’ label and the promised reward of silky soft hair, I purchased the Nourishing Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner, as well as a leave-in conditioner for extra good measure (my hair has seen better days…) which left me about $50 out of pocket.
For $20 a bottle, it’s definitely on the pricey side for a drugstore product. having said that, it definitely surpassed my expectations and worked wonders with my damaged hair. There are a lot of mixed reviews out there for this brand but it’s important to remember that everybody’s hair and scalp is different and what works for me may not work for you, and vice versa. For me, personally, this stuff was like liquid gold! It smells absolutely heavenly, with a luxurious coconut scent that reminds me of holidays in the sun, slathering coconut oil onto my skin — before I became tan-conscious, of course. The shampoo lathers up really nicely and leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean and light-weight. I leave the conditioner on for about 2 minutes and my hair is left amazingly soft and silky without weighing it down. I use the leave-in conditioner on days where my hair feels a little dry or frizzy and it works instantly; It’s like a quick fix for bad hair days! If I use the leave-in conditioner every day between washes it tends to get weighed down pretty quickly, but not so much as using argan oil or a similar leave-in treatment. I didn’t really expect to have perfectly healthy hair again after the hell I’ve put it through, but this really has gone above and beyond and brought my fried, frizzy hair back to life again. I have already purchased another variation from the OGX range to try so I won’t be repurchasing for now, but they’re definitely on my good list. The leave-in conditioner especially, it’s much more hydrating than any others I own, I was very impressed with it. I’ve since found out that there really isn’t anything organic about these, which is why the brand was forced to re-label to ‘OGX’, which I found pretty misleading, but after using the products and reaping the benefits I’m willing to let it slide. Bottom line: if you have the cash it’s definitely worth a try but have a quick look online at other reviews and decide for yourself, this seems to be the sort of product that you’ll either love or hate depending on how it treats you! You can purchase the OGX range from Priceline or Woolies (Australia) for around $20 each, depending on which one you buy. They can also be purchased from Boots (which I just found out is way cheaper than Australia!) or Ulta if you’re overseas. Have you tried anything from the OGX range? How did it treat you? Let me know!
