Just thought I'd give a quick input on my first experience with a non sulphate shampoo. Argan oil seems to be one of the "hottest" ingredients to have added to your hair products, several brands have brought out and some have reformulated their product lines to include this ingredient so I thought why not give it a try..
just remember this is my experience on how it worked on my "kinky" "coily" hair.
So my obvious first step was the shampoo
this had a thick runny gel- like consistency, and I did not require much effort to build up a suds, when applied to wet hair. I've read of some non sulphate shampoo that don;t give much suds. But this felt to me like my regular shampoo and when rinsed out it was not "drying" or in other words my hair did not feel stripped.
I then applied my conditioner, which was very thick and somewhat creamy (had to struggle and squeeze the bottle to get the product out. It gave my hair slip, but not the kind I usually get with my Tresemme Conditioner so my detangling/untangling of my hair with my "fake" denman brush was extremely gentle, nor did it seem to absorb much into my hair shaft, as you can see it seems to do more coating of the hair (above).
After detangling/untangling and rinsing my hair from the regular conditioner I applied the Intense Moisturising Treatment aka "deep conditioner" which was thick in consistency and "melted" or should I say it absorbed nicely into my hair. I then put on a plastic cap and sat under the dryer at medium setting for 30 minutes.
When I took off the cap, my hair felt soft, smooth and conditioned. I did not have any need to apply any extras, but you could if you wanted to.

The main deterrent for me would be the price, I find with this as well as most of the non-sulphate products you don't get much for the price. The regular conditioner would not last me much more than four uses because I do prefer to detange/untangle when my hair is wet and I needed to use quite a lot.
Shampoo and conditioner contains 385mls/13fl.oz. ;Intense Moisturising Treatment contains 237mls/8fl.oz.
The moisturising treatment was pretty good, but would probably give me two more treatment before it was finished. The scent is not flowery, fruity or musky it just reminds me of a man, maybe a sort of cologne/aftershave scent. Which really does not bother me because the scent is not over powering nor does it last after I've included my regular hair product which includes the Luster Scurl "no drip" activator moisturiser that I've been trying out (the old formulation). I don't really like purchasing shampoo/conditioner products every month because it messes with my budget. Especially where I have been making strong efforts to build a savings. Overall what I used, was a fairly good product and for those who don't have my concerns its not a bad buy.
