John Masters Organics Honey & Hibiscus Reconstructing Shampoo

John Masters Organics Honey and Hibiscus Organic Reconstructing ShampooAnother John Masters Organics hair care review (more here, here, here, etc.), and it states the obvious – this is getting out of control, as I am close to trying out the WHOLE range of their products. Have you already seen their newly launched Scalp System? So tempting! It has new Spearmint & Meadowsweet Scalp Stimulating Shampoo, Deep Scalp Purifying Serum, and a larger size Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer.

Getting back to the review. I would like to share some thoughts about John Masters Organics Reconstructing Shampoo. I’ve got 4 samples (yay!) with my last purchase and, although, I am not very keen of samples, these lasted me about 7-8 washes, so I have my opinion set. The package of a real size Reconstructing Shampoo (177ml) is a dark brown, thin tube. It’s very elegant, the kind of bottle you’d put in the most visible place of your bathroom (don’t tell me you don’t do this!). The shampoo itself is a clear, thick liquid with a strong herbal scent. It foams well, so I needed a rather small amount of it (my hair are long at the moment). One 10 ml sample lasted me about 2 washes.

See the ingredients:

Aqua (water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice,* Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Sodium Cocoyl Sulfoacetate, Babassuamidopropyl Betaine, Panthenol, Guar Hydroxypropyl Cetrimonium Chloride, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Hyaluronic Acid, Sorbitol, Honey,* Carnauba Wax, Chondrus Chrispus Extract, Hydrolyzed Rhodophycea Extract, Carrageenan, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Oil,* Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil,* Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil,* Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil,* Soy Tocopherol, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil,* Sulfur, Soy Lecithin, Hibiscus Sabdariffa (Hibiscus) Flower Extract,* Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Oil,* Cananga Odorata (ylang-ylang) Flower Oil,* Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil*. *Certified Organic by Ecocert / QAI.

The shampoo is recommended for dry, damaged, color-treated or permed hair, so I really didn’t know what to expect for my non-colored, more or less oily hair. What I did get were an excellent cleansing and a healthy shine. So, what’s the verdict? I liked it a lot. Except… yes, the price. But the ingredient list kind of makes me almost forget the price. From soy, rice, and wheat proteins for smoothness, hyaluronic acid for moisture to ylang-ylang and bergamot oils for shine. I don’t want to praise it too much, but it left quite an impression.

Available online at John Masters or LoveLula for $24/£26
