I’ll be honest…
I’ve been dragging out the switch to a natural shampoo and conditioner for a while since deciding to use more natural products. I even considered making it my one exception to natural beauty products.
But why? Because my hair is super duper thin, flat and is almost IMPOSSIBLE to comb through when wet without some serious detangler. I’ve tried a couple of natural shampoo and conditioners a friend of mine had and they smelled great but would leave my hair feeling heavy and not really clean.
So here I am searching Amazon for hours, reading tons of products reviews and I see Acure makes shampoo and conditioner.
I’m obessed with Acure Face Scrub (that’s an understatement), so I figured I would at least give their shampoo and conditioner a shot. Plus, I saw it contained Organic Argan Oil so I was sold.
I picked up the Acure Moroccan Argan Shampoo & Conditioner from Target for $9.99 each.
Now in my book, I thought that was a bit expensive for the size of the bottles. I have my Esthetician license so I’m used to getting huge bottles of shampoo and conditioner for that price at Professional Only stores.
Let’s get onto the actual review –
I was initially really turned off by the smell. Or lack of smell, I guess. You won’t find a fruity scent here!
In my opinion, you have to work the product a little more than a non-natural shampoo for a good lather. After I rinse the shampoo out, my hair does usually feel a little dehydrated. Don’t give up here though!
Then apply the conditioner. A little tip! Really take the time to work it into the hair.
I let this sit in my hair for about 5 minutes. When you rinse out, it feels like pure silk!
After my first use, I noticed it felt so much softer than usual. After the second use, I noticed my hair was starting to look super shiny! In fact, I saw a glimpse of the back of my hair the other day and said to myself “Damn, Gina! Lookin’ shiny!”.
It’s well worth the price point and I find myself needing a lot less conditioner than my old brands. My hair truly feels better than ever and I swear I’m not trying to sound like a salesman. I purchased this with my own money and will continue to purchase.

Overall, I highly recommend giving this duo a shot. Hands down, Acure is my current favorite natural brand. Everything I’ve tried is pure gold! The Acure website sells the large 24 oz bottles for $19.99 each or you can get the 8 oz bottles at your local Target or Amazon.
I plan on trying out the other formulas when I run out, so keep an eye out for those reviews.
