I tried the argan oil and shea butter versions from the shampoos. Both of them are really good but the shea butter is better. It really leaves my hair soft and shiny. The argan oil version leaves my hair extremely shiny but not as soft as the other one.
The other really good thing is that I have very itchy scalp and when I say itchy I mean it's like hell. Since I've been using these shampoos I have no problem at all and everybody is complimenting my hair. I have bleached mid back long kinda wavy fine hair.
These are the best shampoos as I have ever tried and I think everybody should give it a go who has very sensitive scalp. Beleive me won't let you down!

First off, apologies for this monster review! I'm going to attempt to comment on four-products-in-one.
I've been searching for haircare products that gently cleanse my fine-textured (but abundant), mid-back length, highlighted hair. My roots get greasy really quickly, the lengths are pretty normal, and the ends are a little more dry. Despite the longish length of my hair and my having highlights, my biggest problem is my hair getting oily quickly and lacking volume. (My hair is naturally medium blonde, and my hairdresser uses the lowest volume of bleach to create the highlights, so I'm not really plagued by dryness associated with over-processing.)
My checklist for haircare is:
*Scalp to feel squeaky clean (I know it's bad to strip away the oils, but I just love that ultra-clean feel!!)
*Roots and lengths to feel lightweight and volumised
*Lengths and ends to resist tangling
*Ingredients to be natural and organic where possible
I came across Lovea Bio products on a natural beauty website called My Pure (www.mypure.co.uk). According to the site:
"The Lovea range of certified organic skin, hair & body care is packed with nourishing natural ingredients. The three key ingredients in this range are: Tahitian Monoi (normal hair & skin), Burkina Shea Butter (dry skin & hair) and Moroccan Argan Oil (for skin & hair that needs special care). Lovea products are certified organic by the French organic certifying body: Cosmetique Bio & ECOCERT. The entire range is suitable for vegetarians"
I ordered the Tahitian Monoi shampoo and conditioner and the Moroccan Argan Oil set, too. I've now used up both sets, with mixed results. Aside from the scents (both of which were delicious), each shampoo and conditioner performed similarly.
Each shampoo gave my hair that real squeaky clean feeling upon use, and this feeling of cleanliness lasted the whole day. (That's all I ask of my shampoo, as I like to wash my hair daily anyway. Well, if I'm going to cleanse my face and body of pollutants every day, then I believe the courtesy should be extended to my hair!) Each shampoo foamed really well and washed out with ease. The lengths of my hair felt lightweight and had more volume and movement than usual.
The two conditioners also behaved similarly to one another. I found that no matter how much I used, it seemed to be absorbed directly into the hair. I'm used to conditioner coating my hair, at least before rinsing, but these conditioners were somehow sucked inside - leaving the lengths feeling parched and even slightly matted!
I always detangle my hair while it is damp using a wide-toothed comb. After using Lovea products, detangling was a real slog. However, once my hair was finally combed through and blowdried, it looked so lightweight and healthy. The Argan shampoo and conditioner, in particular, gave it a beautiful gleam. It's not always easy getting blonde hair to shine (at least, not without coating it in glossing styling products), but these shampoos and conditioners did the trick.
I think I will be repurchasing because these products did manage to tick most of the boxes on my checklist. The matting/tangling effect of each conditioner was quite unsettling, but the end results somehow defied expectation. Each shampoo retails in the UK for £4.99 for 200ml, whilst each conditioner is £5.49 for 150ml - excellent prices, in my opinion, for products with green credentials.
I may try the same shampoos but with the Burkina Shea Butter Nourishing Conditioner from the range, as that is apparently designed to tackle dryness.
