Review: Be Organic Sulfate-free Shampoo and All Natural Conditioner

If you've been following my blog, you might have probably read my posts mentioning our love for Milea Organic Shampoos, particularly the Aloe Vera variant. We've been using the said shampoo for more than three years now and we're still loving it, as usual.

However, the price has been increasing so the budget-savvy mama in me thought of scouting for something more affordable. I discovered this Be Organic through BeautyMNL and decided to give it a try because of the reviews people give. I started using the Aloe variant a little more than a month ago and I think it is best to review the shampoo and conditioner tandem now.

REVIEW

Packaging and Appeal.
Shampoo
The shampoo comes in a white plastic bottle with water-proof label. For a local organic product, a water-proof label is admirable, at least for me. The shampoo has a serum-like consistency and look. 

Conditioner
The conditioner comes in a white plastic pump bottle with water-proof label similar to the shampoo bottle. The conditioner is opaque and has a cream-like consistency.

Effectiveness.
Shampoo
I'd like to tackle what the product claims one by one. First, this variant claims to promote hair growth and control frizz. I cannot attest to that since my hair isn't frizzy to begin with. It isn't perfect, though, so I needed something to make it more manageable. Unfortunately, this shampoo made my hair greasy and weighs it down. Perhaps, this variant is for people with really dry and frizzy hair.

Secondly, the Aloe variant claims to reduce dandruff and itchiness but sadly, it isn't true for me. My scalp started to get itchy and dandruff developed after around two or three uses only.

To address the issue, I just alternate this with the one from Milea.

Conditioner
Again, I will tackle the claims one by one. The conditioner claims to hydrate and nourish hair as well as restore shine and luster, and I think it is doing fairly good in that area. However, when used with the shampoo of the same variant, it's making my hair really greasy, as if I haven't washed it for days. 

When it comes to taming flyaways and reducing hair fall, I don't think I'm satisfied with the result. Human Heart Nature Strengthening is still my favorite.

Scent. Both the shampoo and conditioner are lightly-scented.

Ingredients. The products contain natural ingredients such as aloe vera and free of chemicals such as sodium chloride, sulfates and parabens.

Price. These products are reasonably priced and would have made a cheaper alternative or replacement for Milea shampoos, if only they worked. Both the shampoo and conditioner cost Php 189 (250ml).

Availability. Be Organic products are only available online like BeautyMNL.

No, especially the shampoo. 

CONCLUSION

The Be Organic Sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner may not be for everyone, especially to people with normal or problem-free hair. But if you have dry and frizzy hair, you may want to give this try.
