My mom always told me that with great hair and nice shoes you can do anything. It didn’t take long into my 20’s to realize how right she was. Like with many products, the haircare industry is hard to navigate. Many shampoos and conditioners say they are healthy, nourishing, and replenishing, yet are loaded with toxic chemicals like Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Parabens. Which is why I was super grateful when Pura D’or, an organic and natural hair care line, reached out. I am constantly looking for products that actually take care of my hair and health at the same time. When I receive a few gigantic size bottles of Pura D’or products, I could hardly wait to step in the shower and give them a whirl.
What I received:
Pura D’or Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo
Pura D’or Healing Conditioner
Pura D’or Argan Oil
What I Experienced:
Starting with the shampoo, I was amazed by the very unique smell. It is invigorating and refreshing! There are cedarwood and lemon scents to it, which I appreciate after using so many floral and fruity fragrance shampoos. This one stuck out.
The conditioner has a soothing scent of cocoa butter and the consistency is very thick. I didn’t need much of the product to cover all of my hair, and I have a lot of hair! It consists of a rich texture and full of moisture. The quality is impeccable.
The argan oil is 100% oil, not watered down at all! This is the real deal. For that reason, again, I didn’t need too much for it to make a difference. I used the oil for styling and as a heat protected when flat ironing my hair. It worked beautifully.
All of Pura D’or products are free from SLS, Parabens, and chemical preservatives. The Argan Oil is USDA Organic certified and only consists of organic Argan kern from Morocco. It is registered as a 1 (very low) on the Think Dirty App for toxicity. An excellent and healthy product.
As for the Shampoo, the ingredients are derived from non-GMO products. I really appreciated that there are no use of fragrances and that each listed ingredient had a thorough explanation of what it is. Most of the ingredients registered as a 0-2 in the EWG’s Skin Deep database with the exception of the following:
Cocamidopropyl Betaine- (4) fair data reporting concerns of allergies and immunotoxicity
Zinc Pyrithione- (3) limited data reporting concerns of allergies and of toxicity
Phenoxyethanol- (4) limited data reporting concerns of allergies and of toxicity
The conditioner is 99% plant-based ingredients and no added fragrance once again! With fewer ingredients and each listing under a 2 rating in the EWG’s database, this is an incredibly conditioner.
Overall, Pura D’or is a wonderful choice for a healthy hair care solution. I love the smell, the texture, and the way it has made my hair shine consistently this past week. If you have questions feel free to reach out or comment bellow!
