7 Day Challenge: Organix Hair Care Set

Looking for natural products to tame, nourish, and moisturize your mane? Why not try Organix’s Hair Care Set? They have it in many variants that address different hair problems. Plus, Organix Hair Care Set contains natural ingredients that don’t cause any harm to your hair.

For the past 2 months, my BDJ boxes mostly contained makeup products. It was a pleasant surprise to receive the BDJ May Box, which had varied brands and products. Maybe it was a respite from the Benefit and Pixy products, which I think is good. I still have more than a handful of “to try” products from my BDJ Boxes, not to mention those in my BDJ Luxe Box featuring Shu Uemura.

Going back to Organix Hair Care Set, my BDJ May Box contained the following:

Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo and Conditioner (Php 499 @ 13oz)
Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner (Php 499 @ 13oz)
Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner (Php 499 @ 13oz)
Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil (Php 499 @ 3.3oz)

Briefly, use Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil to strengthen and nourish weak hair. Use Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen to fortify thin and limp hair. Use Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco to restore shine and softness to dry and dull hair. Finally, regardless of which pair of shampoo and conditioner you use, it’s recommended that you apply Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil to fight frizz and strengthen the hair.

Sharing is Caring

Because there were so many sachets in my box, I shared some of them to two of my friends with different hair types. One had thinning and damaged hair due to so many chemical treatments her hair went through. In the span of 2 months, she changed hair color twice! So to her I gave Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner.

My other friend had thick hair, but which she always wore in a ponytail even when it’s still wet! The result was that her hair had this forever ponytail shape and it gets frizzy whenever she took her scrunchy off. So to her I gave Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.

Impressions

The shampoo and conditioner sachets were of 7.4 ml (0.25 oz) each and the box contained 3 sachets of each. With medium length hair (just below the bra line), each sachet of shampoo took about 2 uses while the conditioner took about 1.5 uses. I’m generous when it came to conditioners.

As for the Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil, there were two 3.7ml (0.125oz) sachets in the BDJ May Box. One sachet is good for at least 7 days depending on how generous you are with your hair. Mine lasted for about 10 days.

To put things into context before giving my review, I have medium length hair with naturally dark brown to black color, and it’s digitally permed since December. Normally, the perm lasts for about 4 months but 2 years ago when I first had it digitally permed, it lasted more than a year with the curls gradually uncurling. Having said that, when it comes to taking care of my mane, I’m always looking for something to retain or recover its shine and to allow it to be soft and smooth, but not heavy at the same time. Heavy hair products tend to weigh down the curls.

This would be good for those with hair prone to breakage. Although I have thin hair, breakage was not my problem. I always wore my hair down, without any accessories. If I ever needed to put my hair up, it would be on special occasions or while working out.

Sherill, my friend who I shared this with, loved it! She said that it was like going to the salon and getting a hot oil treatment. As I said, she has thick hair and with the Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, she said that her hair was smoother in a way. “Maganda ang bagsak,” she said. Meaning that her hair fell beautifully this time and not all the way up there.

As for me, it was like having an aromatherapy session while I massaged my scalp. True, the combination of both shampoo and conditioner helped smoothen my hair and it was less frizzy for having thin and limp (i.e. light) hair means that it has the tendency to bunch up or fly whichever way the wind blows.

Downside: the fact that it countered my “light” hair meant that it was a heavy product. And with digitally permed hair, I realized that it wasn’t curling as much. For reference, digitally permed hair is straight when it’s wet and the curls will only show once the hair becomes dry. So when I noticed that my hair wasn’t curling as much as it should while drying, I knew that this product wouldn’t do for me, at least so long as I have my digitally permed hair.

Upside: That having been said, this would be great for straight hair types, whether natural or artificial. It’s also good for those who want their wavy or curly hair to be less wavy or curly.

Will I buy it? Yes, if I revert to my straight hair again. For now, I’ll stick to moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that’re not as heavy on my mane.

Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner

As mentioned earlier, this type is for thin and limp hair, which is my hair type.

I gave a shampoo and conditioner set to Sofie to try it out. As I said, her mane was very chemically treated and she’d used hair care products to lessen the damage on her hair and help prevent any form of thinning and hair fall. She liked it. Although a couple of uses was not really enough to see any results. It was still worth noting if ever she wished for a natural hair care product for her hair condition.

As for me, same with the Anti-Breakage, it was an aromatherapy session. I loved the scent in this one more than the other but it was still quite an experience. Compared to Anti-Breakage, my hair was much smoother after trying Biotin and Collagen out, without the heavy feeling.

Downside: As it did not weigh my hair down, in fact, it was much lighter, the wind blew my hair whichever way that one day that I walked at the open parking lot.

For digitally permed hair, it’s recommended that the curls are grouped together, not left as individual strands. The latter would only mean big, frizzy, and unruly hair. The Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner, with the uber smoothness it gave my hair, prevented the strands/curls from keeping together. It took constant twirling of the my hair with my fingers to keep my curls together.

Upside: As smooth as it gets, despite the twirling, my hair was shinier and much softer with this product. It was easier on the eyes and appealing to the touch as well. It didn’t matter at all that I looked like a crazy person twirling my hair. It was worth it.

Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner

For dry and dull hair, this set promises to moisturize. I can’t say I saw any difference after trying it out, however. Of the 3 in the BDJ May Box, this was my least favorite. >.<

If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m particular on fragrance. The Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco had a musky and manlike scent that I didn’t like. Compared to the other two in which I took my time lathering and conditioning my hair, this one I just wanted to wash away from my hair.

After using the set, I noticed that there was no moisture. My hair was still frizzy. I can’t say any shine materialized as promised although I can say that my hair was softer compared to other non-Organix hair care products I’ve tried.

I don’t have a third person opinion on this because I didn’t share this with any other friend. But this also meant that I’ve used the whole 3 pairs of shampoo and conditioner in my BDJ May Box and yet, I didn’t feel much positive about the product. It was disappointing.

Upside: It delivered on the promise to restore softness into dull and dry hair.

Downside: It had a scent that not every girl will like.

TIP: I find that with this set, it’s imperative to apply Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil penetrating oil in order to get better results.

Fortunately, the penetrating oil isn’t as musky as its shampoo and conditioner counterpart. It was much acceptable, although I’ve had better similar products with much wondrous scents. Applying it after the Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner, the scent of the latter was masked, thank goodness!

As with my tip awhile ago, Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil is best used after Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner. The shine in my hair multiplied with only 2-3 drops of oil from the sachet. I’m not as generous with oil products as they are heavier on the hair and so would just uncurl my curls so I was conservative in using the penetrating oil. One sachet lasted me about 10 days.

Upside: The shine was wonderful! If the 3 hair care variants mentioned earlier contributed to the softness and smoothness of my hair, this one multiplied it!

Downside: The scent, though acceptable, wasn’t up to my standard. Also, I found that if used with non-Organix hair care set, it had a different result. For me, I applied the penetrating oil after using Human Nature’s 100% Moisturizing Shampoo (Mandarin) and Human Nature’s 100% Natural Daily Hair Treatment. Normally, with Human Nature products, my hair would already be soft and smooth. I just add Human Nature’s 100% Natural Smoothening Hair Serum to keep my curls intact and I’m ready to go.

After I applied the penetrating oil, however, which I expected to do the same as the hair serum, it only loosened my curls, not allowing them to stay together. I guess it’s the “smoothening” ingredient in the pentrating oil that affected this, but with this combination, Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil might be one product that can’t stand alone and must always be in tandem with other Organix hair products.

Will I buy this? No. But it might be good for those with long, straight hair for that silky soft feeling. As for my digitally permed hair, it won’t do.

Verdict: 7.5 / 10

Organix Hair Care Set is a great buy despite its price. It’s best if you try out samples first to find out which best fits your hair condition. Factor in if your hair is straight or curly and if the curl or straightness is natural or artificial as this will have a different reaction to the products. I didn’t have any photos of my hair to share as I’m always on the go but I did note everything that I needed to give an unbiased and unadulterated review of the products.

Now for the individual rating:

Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo and Conditioner: 8/10
Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner: 9/10
Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner: 6/10
Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil: 7/10
