This Joico Smooth Cure Shampoo and Conditioner was such a disappointment for me. My hair is frizzy but not frizzy enough for this smoothing shampoo and conditioner. It left my hair feeling so heavy and greasy that it was almost impossible to style after using.
The smell of this stuff is wonderful and I’m a big fan of other Joico products but these two particular products don’t work well for me together or on their own. I knew there was a chance these might be too heavy for my hair but I was hoping that with the way shampoo and conditioner formulas have improved that I could get silky smooth hair without my hair feeling flat. This was not the case.
I realize my hair type might not be a right fit for this product so if yours is you’re lucky because this stuff smells so good!
I’m a sucker for in-store displays and the last time I was at Wal-Green’s they had this GUD Vanilla Flame Natural Nourishing Shampoo set on the counter near the cash register so I picked it up. It seemed interesting and the packaging said it was from Burt’s Bees so I figured that was a plus. Unfortunately this was one of those last minute buys I wish I had passed on. It retails for $6.99 but that week it was on sale for 20% off. It’s marketed as an all-natural, parabens, phthalates and petrochemicals free.
The shampoo is supposed to have a “luscious foaminess” while being nourishing for your hair. This stuff did not get foamy for me and my hair felt extra dry after rinsing it out. The smell was pretty bland as well. I usually love vanilla scents but this fell flat for me. The only thing that saved me was using my Macadamia Natural Oil Repair Masque
I’m not sure how many others have seen this line in the drugstore and I couldn’t find any other reviews so I thought I would throw this up really quick. I definitely don’t think this would ever be worth 7 bucks and I think you are mostly paying for the gimmick of an all-natural product. Skip this and buy a shampoo you know you’ll like!Read More
