Now that I’m getting regular hair color treatments (from a natural line — more on it later!), I have to be very particular about what shampoos I use because I need to hold on to the rich color for as long as possible in between salon visits.
After my last dye job, I was on a mission to find a gentle, natural shampoo that was safe for color-treated hair — and I quickly found Aubrey Organics Rose Mosqueta Nourishing Shampoo.
This shampoo is luxuriously hydrating thanks to rose mosqueta oil, and it offers a natural fade-protection ingredient: thick, creamy shea butter. The soft smell of roses is light yet sweet, and the organic rice bran helps keep minerals from building up in my hair.
Here’s the entire ingredients list:
Aqua, decyl glucoside, glycerin, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein, organic rice syrup, organic aloe leaf juice, xanthan gum, organic shea butter, citric acid, lavender oil, bergamot oil, ylang ylang oil, organic rose mosqueta seed oil, St. John’s wort oil, grapefruit extract, carrot root extract, coltsfoot leaf extract, horsetail extract, alcohol denat. (38b, lavender*), tocopheryl acetate, witch hazel water, ascorbic acid, soybean oil, beta-carotene
The downside, of course, to this ultra soft shampoo on my baby fine hair is that it doesn’t do much for volume.
While it doesn’t exactly weigh my hair down, it’s not thickening up my locks to create a fuller appearance. Instead, Aubrey Organics Rose Mosqueta shampoo is a natural shampoo that you may want to pair with a natural mousse, hot blow dryer and hair styling brushes for a little extra oomph.
But it’s definitely a gentle, color-safe shampoo that you’ll want to have on hand post-color treatment (especially for the first two weeks after a dye job!). I’ll clue you in to another shampoo I’m loving for everyday use next week!
