About two months ago, I noticed my hair getting thinner and flatter than usual. I don’t know exactly what caused this, but I thought it had something to do with me keeping my hair in a tight ponytail every single day. Though it’s just a theory, I don’t know for sure. But what I knew for sure was that I needed to take some action and bring the hair some thickness and volume. I brought home So’Bio etic Niaouli & Guarana Shampoo and Aubrey Organics Biotin Repair Scalp Tonic with high hopes that they will help get my hair back.
So’bio Niaouli & Guarana Shampoo (250ml) is suitable for all hair types and was created to cleanse and strengthen the hair. It contains guarana seed extract, which is well known for its hair growth benefits. The shampoo has a strong herbal scent that resembles peppermint. The consistency is pretty runny, so I needed a handful of shampoo for my medium length hair to make it clean. I had a pleasant experience with other So’bio shampoos in the past (i.e. So’bio etic Lemon and Green Clay Clarifying Shampoo), but this one didn’t agree with my hair at all. It failed to cleanse my hair, so it looked lifeless and flat, not the result I was expecting. I finished the bottle, but I won’t be repurchasing it.
I read good reviews about this Aubrey Organics Biotin Repair Scalp Tonic in Citrus Rain (approx $8/£5 for 177ml), so I was excited to try it myself. It’s a liquid spray made with organic alcohol infused with various natural plant extracts and aloe vera juice. Because it contains alcohol, I was a bit concerned about how my hair would react to a daily use of this scalp tonic, but it turned out just fine. The tonic didn’t make my hair greasy and flat after using it. However, it didn’t give any volume either, though, I was expecting it. So if you’re looking for a volumizing spray, this is not it.
