For years shampoos have had a bad reputation in the natural hair community. There are several reasons why, with the main one being their tendency to strip moisture from our hair while cleansing. This leaves us with hair that feels stiff, stringy and sometimes straw-like after washing with a traditional shampooo. This is largely due to the fact that most traditional shampoos on the market are not formulated for naturally curly, kinky and/or coily hair.
Fortunately, there are brands that seek to rectify this issue with moisturizing shampoos or cleansing conditioners. G3 Naturals is one of those brands and I’m excited to share my experience using their Hair Bathe in lieu of traditional shampoo! Here’s a brief introduction to this newer brand that you need to know:
“Who is G3 Naturals? G³ Naturals is a 3-generational company that specializes in all natural handcrafted hair, body and cleaning products. We believe that the best things in life come from nature in its purest form.”
A family brand that is all natural and handcrafted; I love what they’re about!
Consistency & Aroma
Hair Bathe is quite creamy and smooth. It has a thickness to it that is more than a typical shampoo, yet a little thinner than most conditioners. It’s a great balance between the two. Not only does it have a nice consistency, but the scent is lovely as well. There's a combination of coconut milk, African black soap and essential oils in this that create a pleasant aroma that isn't overpowering. It's herbal and light in a way that lets you know your hair is in for a treat!
I first dowsed my hair with warm water and then applied the Hair Bathe to my hair in four sections. This allowed me to make sure it was evenly distributed for a really good wash. I finger combed and smoothed the product throughout each section thoroughly. I also massaged it into the scalp all over. The way this product felt in my hair (plus the scent) made me swoon! Why you ask? Because I was able to detangle my hair easily without conditioner! For any other naturals out there, you can understand what a big deal that is.
After rinsing it out, my hair felt clean, moisturized and noticeably softer. Unlike traditional shampoos, it left my hair feeling nourished instead of feeling stripped of moisture. Their hair oil blend in this product also left my hair with a nice sheen as well, again, before even using a conditioner. Who doesn't love a little shine to top things off?
As you can tell, I love this cleanser and will be using it again. I highly recommend you check them out for this product as well as their others. Their attention to quality and performance will not disappoint! When you try them out let me know and share your experience as well.
