Thanks to the Transportation Security Administration, I now travel with sample hair care products. It’s how I get through airport security with all kinds of smell goods and try new products on the cheap.
On my last trip, I took a few samples of KeraCare Natural Textures. Most hair care samples leave me underwhelmed, but KeraCare almost made me revisit my old product junkie ways. Almost.
What could possibly do that? Well, it’s called Cleansing Cream. It is sulfate free and is spiked with amla, neem, and shikakai. It doens’t hurt that it also has argan and abyssinian oils. I poured it into my hand, massaged it into my hair and scalp, and didn’t want to rinse. It’s luscious and I let it stay on my hair while I bathed. I love it. If I see it at the store, other shoppers will have to restrain me from scooping the entire shelf into my cart.
I also tried the Butter Cream. It’s a mix of shea and cocoa butters, amla and shikakai powders, and argan and abyssinian oils. It works for me because it is moisturizing and has no hold, which means it doesn’t make my hair hard or crunchy. Some people like hold, but I can live without it most of the time.
I am resisting the urge to purchase both items. The Cleansing Cream goes for about $13 for 8 ounces, while the Butter Cream retails for about $18 for 8 ounces. The prices will keep these out of my everyday routine. Of course, when I have a chance to splurge, both of these will make great treats.
Have you tried it?
