Latest John Masters Organics Reviews

Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler

I absolutely love this detangler and it kills me that it's no longer offered at Ulta. I initially got it as a free sample and ended up watering down the bottle remnants because I loved it so much. I was disappointed to see how expensive it was until I bought it and had it for nearly a year with twice weekly washes. I realize this product can be used as a conditioner and washed out but I wouldn't recommend it that way as its not as cost effective and in my opinion works much better as a leave in. I use a dime size amount and comb it through from the shaft to the ends of my fine medium length wavy hair and allow it air dry or blow dry. Regardless of how it dries, it leaves my hair soft and detangled, but air drying with this product leaves a tiny bit of texture on my fine hair. Using too much or using it at your roots will weigh down your hair like most other products will. I like to use this with the Vanilla Bourbon and Tangerine texturizer also from John Masters Organics, it gives the most beautiful soft, tangle-free waves if you apply a tiny bit on your fingertips and tousle the ends of your hair with it.

I love the scent, ease of use and fantastic slip this gives my hair. It makes detangling a breeze.The price is too much for a detangling product in my opinion. I tend to use cheapie conditioners to detangle that work just as well.

SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen

Be warned...the white cast from this is absolutely horrendous! I purchased it several months back in the full 2oz size as it was the smallest size available and there were no testers out for me to try either. Firstly the bottle is so heavy! I was surprised how much the glass amber bottle weighed, I instantly figured if I needed to take this on travel I'd definitely need to decant into something much more lightweight. Then came the application - literally like a watered down but thicker version of calamine lotion, the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are full-on in this product and absolutely no way could I walk around with a glaring white sheen covering my face and neck, so I removed it immediately! For that matter I can't even use it on my arms or body, it's just far too obvious...and in any case even if I wanted to I now definitely cannot as the product has congealed into what looks like a solid white lump in the bottle, surrounded by a layer of what appears to be water! Not happy. Wasn't cheap either!  Selena x  ~ My HG list ~  (As I've sampled 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, I thought it might be useful to share my top 10 must-have products, subject to change if and when I come across something more effective. I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora)  1. Hair Loss Treatment: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Hair Oil  2.
