I first heard of Plaine Products from Leah over at StyleWise and since I was in the market for some sustainable and natural shampoo and conditioner I thought I might as well try them out. During that time I also tried out Akamai products (review here) and the Plaine Products were the clear winner for me. Here's why: the shampoo and conditioner didn't clog my pores (sometimes I get inflamed zits around my hair line with certain products) and it also calmed the crazy dandruff and inflamed scalp from a bad bleach job (remember that ugly yellow hair from last year)? The fact that the products are sulfate-free, vegan and they have a zero-waste program that allows me to return empty bottles is just a bonus (ok a really big bonus, but really if the products were bad this bonus wouldn't make me want to re-buy it). But luckily these products are awesome. I'm already out of the shampoo and am currently waiting for it in the mail!
If you're interested, you can find the list of ingredients here. As for the smell of the products, all three products smell to me 'minty-botanical' but it's a very mild scent (their bottles describe it as 'rosemary, mint, vanilla'). The shampoo and body wash are my favorite, while the conditioner is good but not the best I've tried (I guess I'm used to those really chemically-laden stuff that make your hair feel as soft as silk). The conditioner consistency isn't super thick but at the same time my hair is now used to it and doesn't need those thick conditioners. The shampoo, which I love, cleans my thin hair without stripping it of oils (in fact there are days I can use just the shampoo without the conditioner and my hair still feels rather soft, but I'm not sure if those with thick hair will have the same result). The body wash is also really awesome and lathers easily. But I like that all the products are color-safe for my dyed hair and again they don't break me out. It's perfect for those with sensitive skin like me.
I love their stuff so much that as I mentioned above, I would love to be able to stock all our Airstreams at GoSilver with their products. So if you do purchase through my referral links to Plaine Products, thank you so much for supporting my goal!
