Evening Primrose Shampoo for Dry Hair by John Masters Organics

JM Evening PrimroseHey everyone, Dee here! For years I have been using Evening Primrose Shampoo by John Masters Organics.  I was turned on to it by a hairstylist friend, and soon I was swooning over every product by this awesome company.  This extremely low-lathering shampoo is a gel-like substance with a golden brown hue and light earthy scent.  The featured ingredient, evening primrose oil, adds moisture and strength to fine, limp hair.  It is combined with other certified organic plant oils and extracts (21 certified organic ingredients total!) as well as nutrient rich proteins and amino acids. Because it is SLS free it is safe for color treated hair.  Some of the other highlighted ingredients include hyaluronic acid which is the same acid found in young hair, wheat amino acids which help with comb-through and shine, and geranium which regenerates cells and strengthens hair shaft.

When shampooing with this product, I recommend using a generous amount if you have long hair (I would say a dollup about the size of a 50 cent piece, for all of you out there with 5o cent pieces in your wallets).  Lather it up as best you can in your hands and massage it into your scalp.  Its super refreshing and really nurtures fine, dry hair like mine.  Although I wash my hair every few days, I wouldnt be afraid to wash daily with this shampoo because it is so gentle.  I follow with John Masters Rosemary and Peppermint Detangler, another fantastic JM Organics product I can’t live without.  The Evening Primrose Shampoo is $16 for 8 oz but is also available in 32 oz size.
