Organix - Acai Berry Avocado Shampoo

I purchased this towards the end of May because I was out of shampoo and Walgreens was having a BOGO sale for all Organix products.
I loved their Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo, so I purchased that again and picked up the Berry Avocado for free.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water) , Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate , Cocamidopropyl Betaine , Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine , Glycol Distearate , Dimethicone Copolyol , Cetyl Alcohol , Cocamide DEA , Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride , Polyquaternium-11 , DMDM Hydantoin , Panthenol , Silk Amino Acids , Acai Berry Extract , Avocado Extract , Albumen , Argan Extract , Hydrolyzed Milk Protein , Guava Extract , Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) , Coumarin , Parfum


How I used it: After Pre-pooing (or conditioning overnight) I rinsed the pre-poo out and placed the shampoo diluted with a little water in my applicator bottle and dispursed all throughout my scalp/roots and let the rest seep into my hair. Massaged the shampoo in my scalp under running water and repeated one more time.
Edited to Add: I did not completely rinse of the prepoo, I wet my hair because I do not shampoo dry hair
 
Total Uses: 3
 
What I have to say: The shampoo smells soo good..of course because of the berry. It also lathers really well for being sulfate free. Unfortunately, it was very drying to my hair. My hair felt so hard after rinsing it out and I had to immediately follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. The shampoo felt as if it were a clarifying shampoo and stripped my hair of all the moisture placed from the pre-poo. Luckily, after conditioning, my hair felt back to normal.  If you look towards the end of the ingredient list, it contains protein, so this could be the reason for the dryness.
 
Will I re-purchase- NO, but I will use this once month as a clarifying shampoo and stick to the Cherry Blossom Ginseng
 
Cost: $6.99 for 13 oz. @ Walgreens

* I dilute my shampoo so it can come out of the applicator bottle easier, but I was happy I did so with this shampoo to avoid extremely negative results.

  1. Why do you rinse out the pre-poo?? I would advise, since it was drying to your hair, to keep the pre-poo in then wash. May I recommend something?? Since you go to Walgreens there is a hair/body line called Shea Moisture. Their products are great when it comes to moisturizing my hair. It costs 10 dollars but you dont need to use as much shampoo. Remember,just because it doesn't lathers doesnt mean it's not cleaning your hair! By you washing the pre-poo out, your hair is unprotected from the drying ingredients. Joanna .J

  2. I don't like to apply shampoo to dry hair. Maybe I should have clarified, that I basically just wet my hair and in the process it's slightly rinsing the pre-poo out then I apply the shampoo.
    I honestly do not believe a pre-poo should even be needed before shampooing your hair especially one with no sulfates. I have used other shampoos with-out even prepoo-ing and my hair was still left soft afterwards.
    As for the Shea-Moisture line, I heard many great reviews about the Moisture Retention Shampoo and that's next on my list.
    Thanks for your suggestion and stopping by :-)
