I’ve read so many good reviews about this John Masters Organics Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo for normal hair, so I had to try it. Obviously, it’s one of the most popular John Masters Organics hair care products and is even featured in many well-known magazines, including Harper’s Bazaar (named as one of “natural beauty wonders” there, so it says something!).
John Masters Organics Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo’s key ingredients are lavender, which normalizes scalp; rosemary, which stimulates hair growth and adds volume; also, soy protein, which strengthens hair and makes it look fuller; more extracts like white tea, chamomile, yarrow are also included in the list. Sounds like a great bunch, right? The scent is a mix of rosemary and lavender (more lavender, though).
The package is a very sophisticated brown bottle. The shampoo is thick dark brown liquid, which does not foam at all (which is not a must for me, but I know many people like foaming shampoos, so just stating the facts).
I would describe my hair roots oily with dry ends, and I tend to wash my hair every other day. My reviews about John Masters Organics are usually positive because I enjoy its skin care, hair care, and body care products very much. So, it came as a surprise that I didn’t like this Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo. I’ve tried and tried, and tried again until I’ve used up almost half of the bottle and then just gave up – the product obviously wasn’t for me. It’s really unfortunate that the shampoo left my hair felt lifeless and without any promised volume. However, I think this shampoo has so many awards for a reason, so I reckon maybe because my hair doesn’t fall into a “normal” category, it just wasn’t the right shampoo for me, not that it’s a bad product itself.
