Welcome to the vernal equinox lovelies!

Today is the first day of spring and in celebration of the day which marks the end of winter

I thought I’d share with you a recent discovery of mine.

Very little gives me more pleasure than finding a new beauty product that I just can’t wait to tell everyone about.

And today that product is Josh Rosebrook’s Nourish shampoo and conditioner, which is perfect for all hair textures with normal to dry scalps.

Josh Rosebrook products pepper my shower and my vanity table because, in addition to being a simply delightful human being, Josh is very passionate about plants, and about a return to our roots. He understands that our planet provides such an immense bounty of delicious botanicals and oils and through this understanding has been able to cultivate a line of hair and skincare products that respects the delicate balance intended by nature.

Nourish Shampoo Scorecard

ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf juice, Aqua, *Black Soap, Saponified Coconut oil, *Camelina oil, *Hemp Seed oil, *Jojoba oil, *Coconut oil, *Grape Seed oil, *Evening Primrose oil, *Sweet Almond oil, *Calendula, *Nettle, *Catnip, *Alfalfa, *Rose Hips, *Flax, *Dandelion, *Rosemary leaf, *Linden flowers, *Burdock, *Horsetail, *Sage, *Chamomile, *Ginseng, *Oregano, *Thyme, *Lavender, *Peppermint, *Goldenseal, *Cinnamon, *Cayenne, §Xanthan Gum, §Potassium Sorbate, †Lavender essential oil, †Orange essential oil, †Rosemary essential oil, †Ylang Ylang essential oil.

*Certified Organic †Organic ‡Wildcrafted §Non-GMO plant sourced

key benefits: african black soap and dandelion detoxifies and gently cleanses; nettle slows hair thinning; rosemary slows growth of grey; sage and camelina seed oil add shine and strengthens hair; horsetail, peppermint, ginseng, thyme, calendula, lavender
all work to stimulate hair growth, condition the scalp and increases scalp and follicle circulation; and catnip calms any sort of scalp irritations

how to use: after you wet your hair and suds* up let it sit for 1-3 minutes. This gives the nutritious ingredients a chance to really penetrate the hair follicles and provide maximum benefit

*don’t expect it to suds up like conventional shampoos, but it will lather substantially more than a lot of other natural shampoos. To me, as someone who’s been using natural shampoos for awhile now, it provides the perfect amount of foam. 

performance: I have to say that

and the reason for this bold declaration is that usually with other natural shampoos my hair feels straw-like as I’m washing it (which is completely normal since its the silicone in shampoos with nasty ingredients that make your hair feel slip n’ slide smooth) but with this one my hair feels unbelievably silky. Both in the shower when I’m washing it and after when I’ve left it air-dry.

It’s the kind of silkiness that I can only equate to wearing silk pajamas while lying in a bed of silk sheets.

price: $45 CDN (240ml)

Nourish Conditioner Scorecard

ingredients: *Aloe Vera Leaf juice, Aqua, *Camelina oil, *Coconut oil, *Meadowfoam Seed oil, *Olive oil, *Hemp Seed oil, *Shea Butter, *Rosemary leaf, *Calendula, *Nettle, *Catnip, *Alfalfa, *Rose Hips, *Flax, *Dandelion, *Linden flowers, *Burdock, *Horsetail, *Sage, *Chamomile, *Ginseng, *Oregano, *Thyme, *Lavender, *Peppermint, *Goldenseal, *Cinnamon, *Cayenne, †Sustainably Sourced Palm Kernel extract, *Guar Gum, §Xanthan Gum, §Potassium Sorbate, *Vinegar, †Lavender essential oil, †Orange essential oil, †Rosemary essential oil, †Ylang Ylang essential oil.

*Certified Organic †Organic ‡Wildcrafted §Non-GMO plant sourced

key benefits: nut, seed, plant oils and herbs combine to smooth, soften and moisturize hair; fatty acids and active phytonutrients bring back shine and herbal infusions stimulate scalp circulation supporting and encouraging strong hair growth

performance: this conditioner is very light in texture so at first you don’t think it’s going to be a powerhouse moisturizer but it is.

And as someone who likes to skip combing their hair post-shower and let it air-dry, to help retain my natural boho curls, I find that the conditioner (or perhaps its the duo) has helped to significantly decrease tangles and frizz

price: $45 CDN (240 ml)

shampoo + conditioner for the win?

Due to the silk-factor and the decrease in tangles and frizz both the shampoo and the conditioner are wins in my book and are 100% repeat purchases.

Guys, when you run your fingers through your hair you’re basically petting a pile of really soft puppies.
