Farasue’s Garden Shampoo & Conditioner Review
I didn’t purchase these items. I received them as a beta tester for Curlove.
Farasue’s Garden is a fairly new hair and beauty company whose goal is “to educate our customers to the potential damage synthetic products can cause and provide natural substitutes that can be incorporated into their daily hair routine.”
I was excited to try the shampoo and conditioner as they came in a snazzy yellow bag with a business card. Very good presentation.
Farasue’s Garden Clarifying Shampoo
“Oh em gee. This stuff reeks.”
That was my first impression of this shampoo. The bottle states that there is a “light peppermint tea tree scent.” Lies. All lies.
This shampoo smells like Vick’s VapoRub. It’s super strong and medicinal.
Because it contains both lavender and peppermint, it left my scalp feeling tingly and refreshed. It’s a fairly thick shampoo but it rinsed away cleanly.
I made the mistake of getting some on my neck and forehead and felt like my skin was frying. I had to immediately rinse the areas.
On the plus side, the shampoo is paraben and sulfate free.
Farasue’s Garden Clarifying Conditioner
First of all, I never understood the concept of a clarifying conditioner. A clarifier strips the hair and conditioner coats it. Hmm.
The conditioner smells better than the shampoo. It’s still strong but it smells more like peppermint than medicine.
That being said, I didn’t feel it did anything special for me. My hair didn’t feel any more conditioned or clarified than before I used it. I was just left with hair that smelled like a candy cane.
I’ll Pass On Farasue’s Garden
The smell of the products is a turnoff for me. And although the shampoo worked as promised, I can get the same results without the scent or sting for cheaper. Farasue’s gets 1/2 out of 5 nappy fros.
