Vitabrid C¹² Scalp+Shampoo ($32.00 for 10.14 oz. from Vitabrid C¹² and Nordstrom): is formulated to improve scalp and hair health by gently cleansing the hair and scalp while moisturizing and infusing them with antioxidant-rich vitamins. It thoroughly and effectively cleanses without stripping the skin and hair, and leaves both moisturized without leaving behind any sort of residue. This shampoo was a real skin and hair savior for me this winter since both were left dry and dehydrated because of the chilly season. Furthermore, I noted an increase in the volume of my hair, and it is decidedly softer and smoother after, and this shampoo does not disappoint. I should note that it does have a light, clean aroma, but it is neither cloying, nor in the long-lasting. Purchase Again? There is definitely another bottle in my future, but right now I have to many open shampoos to use.
SHU UEMURA Gentle Radiance Cleanser ($59.00 for 13.4 oz from SHU UEMURA ART OF HAIR and Sephora): This shampoo is so gentle and non-stripping that my hair is manageable before I even condition it. It deeply and gently cleanses the hair and scalp, and it hydrates without overdoing it. Hair is never left greasy or feeling dirty, but instead feels nourished, moisturized, volumized, balanced and soothed. Purchase Again? I just opened another bottle!Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod Body Wash is a non-stripping, richly lathering body wash with an absolutely hypnotic aroma. The pink peppercorn is enriched by a fusion of ginger and rich, warm patchouli. I tend not to like most patchouli scented body care products, but it is so tempered by the other aromas that it is scarcely recognizable. Purchase Again? It appears that this has been replaced by Fiery Pink Pepper Body Wash ($35.00 for 10 oz. from Molton Brown, Neiman Marcus and bluemercury), and I will definitely try it!
