I am not a hair care snob. I will generally use products sold at the grocery or drug store, but will occasionally splurge on Aveda products at my salon.
SAMY, Miami’s celebrity hairstylist, has brought his 30 plus years of experience to create esencia, a new line of organic, professional performance hair care products that are all made with at least 95% natural ingredients and are never tested on animals. All of esencia’s prooudcts are free from Sulfates, Parabens, and Phthalates that can strip hair’s natural proective layers and fade color. They also contain no wax or residue to weigh hair down.
My hair tends to be dry and I have it highlighted so I tried the hydrating shampoo and conditioner with white Lotus, barley, and nettle, as well as the conditioning treatment with coconut, shea, and sweeet almond. The conditioner was a tad light weight for my liking, but I loved the deep conditioning treatment and the scent is heavy on coconut, which is perfect for going into summer.
esencia products include a full line of styling aids and are sold nationwide at Walgreens and Rite Aid. They retail for less than $9, so they are also budget friendly for those of us who want to go green and be gentle with our hair and the environment.
