Happy New Year! I thought it would be great to kick off the new year with my first post for 2016 on my blog being about my favorite vegan & cruelty-free product find of 2015. Man, there were SO many but when I really thought about it, this seemed like a no-brainer to me. I never would have thought that a SHAMPOO would be my favorite product of 2015, but it most definitely was! Today I will be reviewing the amazing Sweet Orange Hemp Shampoo from the lovely brand The Wonder Seed. And get ready because if you haven’t tried this yet, you will want to by the end of this post!!
I was first introduced to The Wonder Seed through my Vegan Cuts Beauty Box subscription. We received a sample of their Lavender Hand Cream (which has since been reformulated) and I enjoyed it for the most part but was REALLY curious as to what else this brand had to offer. I am pretty much obsessed with anything hemp (I know what you’re thinking– and no haha) because I really believe it is better than coconut oil. There I said it! Seriously though, hemp seed oil is WAY overlooked and I have no clue why. It freaking works wonders. I discovered hemp seed oil a few years back after picking up on a tip that a hot hemp seed oil mask cures scalp psoriasis like no other. Turns out, that was a life changing tip!
I have suffered with a dry itchy scalp pretty much my whole life. What started out as seborrheic dermatitis, turned into full fledged severe scalp psoriasis. I know, I know. Everyone says it’s an immune thing, and TRUST ME I have tried everything. Nothing, and I mean nothing, has given me the results that hemp seed oil has. So while I found a miracle cure for my psoriasis temporarily, it always came back in full force right after I shampooed my hair. I then set out on a mission to try every natural dandruff/psoriasis fighting shampoo there ever was to no avail. That was, until, I was introduced to The Wonder Seed.
After hearing that The Wonder Seed was all about using “the most nutritious oil on Earth,” I had to see what else they offered product-wise! I then discovered their Sweet Orange Hemp Shampoo. I just had a good feeling about it from the start. I thought to myself, “I have finally found my holy grail!” I had high hopes that it was finally going to be the one shampoo that works for me. And my friends, I was not let down.
Okay so I can go on and on about how freaking amazing this shampoo is like I’m selling gold here, but let me stick to the facts:
FACT– it smells amazing, and unlike other dandruff fighting shampoos, you will not cringe when you smell your hair the next day.
FACT– it is SUPER moisturizing and keeps all of your natural oils in balance.
FACT– it makes your hair shiny, manageable, and gives great volume.
FACT– it is color-safe!
FACT– it can be used by any age and any hair type and still provide amazing results.
FACT– it WORKS, my hair has less dandruff, is less itchy, has less psoriasis patches, and has held up consistently every. single. time.
FACT– formula is vegan, gluten-free, paraben and sulfate free, all natural ingredients, made in the USA, and has had absolutely NO animal testing to get it to where it is.
So… are you sold yet? I can’t tell you how many people I have recommended this to. I see questions being asked ALL of the time about a vegan & cruelty-free anti-dandruff alternative and it baffles me when people overlook my recommendation of this shampoo. Heck, even if I DIDN’T have psoriasis I would want to use this shampoo. I really don’t think I have ever been so passionate about a product. If this doesn’t work for you, you can personally yell at me and I will take it… but I highly doubt that will be the case.
Okay so here are my only cons:
- Needs a bigger bottle option, the 8oz lasts me about a month and a half, if that.
- Have to order online– BUT on the plus side of that, if you are an Amazon Prime customer, you can order it right from there and it usually arrives next day with free shipping.
- A littttle pricey but I can understand that with the ingredients that they are using being so high quality.
- I didn’t create this myself (okay just kidding that’s not a real con).
That’s it! No other cons, no other quandries, nothing. This product is pretty much flawless and I am so thankful I discovered it last year!
So before I continue raving about this to no end, I am going to stop here. If you are looking for a new vegan & cruelty-free shampoo to try out or are suffering from eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, or just have a dry scalp/hair I highly recommend giving this a go. The Wonder Seed company is so lovely and has such amazing products. I really look forward to trying more of their products and being a life-long customer! Now off to wash my hair! 😉
