Coffee just may be the new Calgon!!
From The Pomade Shop website: Elevate your hair experience with the Cafe Au Natural Coffee Conditioner. This thick and creamy mixture of coffee, nourishing oils, and herbal extracts is designed to give your hair a hydrating boost. It’s moisture in a bottle–coffee style! Cafe Au Natural is great for regular and/or deep-conditioning. This conditioner is suitable for all hair types, but it is recommended for dry hair.
Ingredients: Water, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (BTMS), Cetearyl Alcohol, Coffee. Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Peppermint Leaf, Green Tea Herb, Grape Root, Rose Hips, Orange Peel, Calendula Flower, Echinacea Root, Goldenseal Rhizome, Red Clover Leaf, Optiphen
Cost(s): $16, $26
Samples?: Yes, 2oz for $7
Packaging: I received a 16oz bottle full of product. The bottle is clear, very sturdy, with easy to read labeling. The writing does fade with continued water exposure though, so be aware of that.
Scent: Like the shampoo, this also smells like freshly ground coffee beans! NOM!
Texture: I adore the texture of this conditioner! It has a medium density that’s super creamy and slippery. You feel the weight of the oils immediately. The bottle dispenses the product effortlessly.
Slip: I’ll be honest with you by saying that I initially used this product for the first time on a 10 day wash n go– so basically my hair was super tangly. I thought I was asking too much of this conditioner to go to war, but I was pleasantly surprised at how detangling was a breeze! I mean seriously guys this conditioner melted my tangles, and I could feel my hair swelling with moisture and getting that awesome slippery feel you experience with a quality conditioner. It’s like your curls are already telling you they love you!
Moisture: Again, back to the curls talking to me. The fatty alcohol (cetearyl alcohol) plus the oils in this baby make this conditioner hydration city. Upon rinse out, my hair felt soft, sleek and moisturized to the point where I could go straight to styling without using a leave-in conditioner. Doing that, I got about 3 days before I needed to re-moisturize. As a leave-in, it’s a bit tricky because the oils don’t play well with every gel, BUT– when I combined it with Ecostyler or Ampro gel I had soft, shiny coilage that didn’t need refreshing for 5 days. I did not use this product as a deep conditioner or with a steamer, but I can only imagine that it would be awesome.
A great smell and formulation makes this conditioner the obvious standout of the pair that all hair types can enjoy, but dry, chemically treated, or other porous hair types should strongly consider giving this a try. Like, run and try this already!
