shielo shampoo, conditioner & leave-in protectant review & giveaway

When Shielo offered me the opportunity to test out their shampoos and conditioners, I was really excited. My hair isn't my finest feature. By that, I mean that it's a mess. The only time it's ever not a mess is for probably the first week after my awesome stylist cuts it and saves it from the horror it's become. A week later, it becomes a mess again. A thick, unruly, mangled mess of chaos. The only way I can get my hair to be somewhat presentable is by flat-ironing the heck out of it, something that doesn't lend itself kindly to already frizz-prone hair. When I was a teenager, I actually ironed (...with a clothing iron) my hair so much that it fell out in chunks and I swear it's been acting out against the flat iron ever since. All that said, my hair is always in need of some kind of help -- and moisturizer. So, naturally, when Shielo approached me for this opportunity, I jumped at the chance to try products from their HYDRATE line. (For the record, their other lines are VOLUME, ANTIOXIDANT and COLOR PROTECT.)

My initial reaction when I popped open the bottle of shampoo was the scent. You guys, the scent is breathtaking. The scent of natural organic white tea, shea, hibiscus and vanilla cactus? Oh my. I can't even put into words the way the bathroom suddenly transformed into this relaxing, aroma-therapeutic oasis. The good news is the conditioner -- which also includes organic extracts of sugar cane and apple -- smells just as heavenly. No artificial perfume can compare to to the aroma of natural, organic extracts and these Shielo products prove just that. I couldn't stop sniffing my hair long after my shower was over. I also really liked the lather that the shampoo made despite being sulfate free, which is something I miss in my other sulfate free shampoos.

Let's step back and look at Shielo as a company. Their products are paraben free, rich in mineral compounds, plant proteins and certified organic extracts. They're also cruelty free, which is always so incredible to see when it comes to beauty products.

After using the products for a few weeks, I could definitely feel a difference in my hair. I wore it down a few times -- sans flat ironing -- which rarely happens. In addition to the great shampoo and conditioner, Shielo also offered for me to try their Antioxidant Leave In Protectant.

This antioxidant leave-in protectant spray is awesome. It contains UV protectants and natural antioxidants from white tea, which will also protect your color. It contains shea butter and also a wheat crosspolymer that increases flexibility and reduces breakage. All you need to do is mist it through your towel-dried hair and style as usual. I used it as a safety net for my hair before subjecting it to the flat-iron and it did a great job as protecting my hair from the dreaded frizz!

  3. Your hair sounds a lot like mine! I look like a hot mess 90% of the time because my hair is wild and out of control. I've ironed it, straightened it, had it chemically straightened. You name it, I've done it to try and keep my fuzzball under control.
