Argan oil cream revitalizing shampoo from Zakia's Morocco

*DISCLAIMER : I was kindly given this product by Zakia's Morocco owner. I was not paid to make my review, so I will share my honest opinion on it.*

That being said, this shampoo is meant for normal to dry hair which is frequently washed and dried without any special care. Well I think it has been created specially for me :)). I used it extensively in the past month, once every other day, so I can give you a thorough review with pictures as pieces of evidence.

What do I think about it? It is an organic-inspired shampoo, it contains very few silicones, no other mineral oils and no parabens to declare. It is a all-in-one formula which cleanse, condition and prep the hair in a signle wash.
The shampoo itself has a gorgeous golden-bronzey colour and you need really a little to make it work. As all natural shampoos, it does not foam much but it does not mean it does not cleanse (foam is linked to chemical surfactants in classical shampoos). Not convinced?? Just think about dry cleaning shampoos, no foam but great washing efficiency. A single wash with a delicate massage is sufficient even on real dirty hairs. The packaging is well designed, a flip top bottle made of soft plastic that is easy to grip even with wet hands (who has never drop the shampoo bottle in the shower tub?). No labels that get dirty, instructions are printed directly on the bottle (really great idea).

Does it work? The low foaming efficiency was disturbing at first but when I saw the results I was pleasantly surprised. Hairs are untangled, easy to style, silky, soft and shiny! All this just by shampooing!! I blow dried my hairs each time I used it and no further damages even without an extra heat protection.
Pictures: the two first with a natural light and the last one is taken inside! It explains the colour difference between the pictures!
Well you can too see me without any make up (just lip balm). I do not look great, tired eyes and slightly red skin, but all in all my skin has greatly improve. Maybe I will be able to walk out unmade up one day :p

Do I recommend it? Yes... It is a very soft shampoo even if it is a deep cleansing formula. It contains luxurious ingredients that go deep into your hair. For people who wash their hair really often and do not like to spend extra time for care, thumbs up!!! Small downside, it is only avalaible for sale in the US at the moment. Yeah that's life!

Price : 19$95 for 200ml on
Zakia's Morocco website

Just in case you wonder, I just blow dried my hairs upside down for these pics. They are my real hairs, no extension and no dye...

See ya :)
