SILK18 Shampoo

A little over a year ago, I was contacted by Maple Holistics to review their Tea Tree Shampoo, which they sell in a shampoo/conditioner set with their Argan Conditioner now.  Since then, they have branched out offering a variety of shampoos, conditioners, and skin care. I was contacted again, this time to share their new shampoo: SILK18

The first thing I noticed about this shampoo was the packaging.  The packaging is a great size, not too bulky to sit on the side of the shower or in the back. Some of the bottle that I had would fall off, driving me up the wall. It's easy to store in any area in the bathroom. The bottle is made out of recycled packaging as well. One reason I like the company if that they are for holistic and healthy products. If you do not know about the company, all their products are natural and cruelty-free.  

Their products also are safe for color treated hair and paraben-free. According to the Organic Consumers Association, parabens are used to extend the shelf life of products. It helps prevent the growth of fungi and bacteria in a number of products we use everyday including deodorant, soaps, and moisturizers. For me, I tend to buy products now that don't have a lot ingredients or chemicals in them and this shampoo fits the bill.

The are ingredients used in this shampoo that have found separately in a few shampoo but never together all in one before. With SILK18, I love the small of the it, being a big lover of vanilla. They use natural vanilla to achieve that smell. It also contains argan oil, jojba oil (used to make the hair soft and give it shine), and botanical keratin in the product. 

With this shampoo, a little goes a long way. Since my hair is on the shorter side, I use a nickle 
instead of a quarter (as is suggested). If you have longer hair, I would say to use the quarter size. I have been using the product for almost a month and still have over 90% of the bottle still. Starting at $12.95 for the shampoo, I think that is a great invest for a great product. As I have gotten older, I realize that sometimes you have to spend more money for a quality product.

You can find the shampoo on Maple Holistics website here or on Amazon here. It comes in 12oz and 16oz. If you go through the companies website, you will be able to get a coupon to use on Amazon. Next, I'm going to try the conditioner. If anyone gets a chance, I would highly recommend trying this shampoo and some other products from Maple Holistics. 

Peace and blessings, all and have a great Wednesday.
