Irecently finished my bottle of OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner which I purchased from Boots Pharmacy on sale nearly four months ago I believe.

I'm always trying new hair products to find the one that makes my luscious kinky curls happy. I've tried a few from Aussie Winter Miracle Shampoo and Remedy Deep Conditioner to Herbal Essence. It was the same with my deep conditioner until I found the TruCare Almond Oil and Henna deep conditioner which I believe every natural should at least try. 

I've since got my mum on the same deep conditioner for her natural hair which is very brittle and prone to breaking. She's just at the beginning of using it but I'm certain she'll start to see and feel Improvements soon.

I have also recommended her the OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner and here's why.
I'm not sure if there's a set standard of measuring up products but these are the standards I went by.

This product is expensive, coming in between €11-€13 each depending on where you buy it. I bought these two are set on sale in Boots Pharmacy for around €15 total.

There are many other products out there below this cost bracket but, at least in Ireland, I find to get good products for natural hair, you're often paying a LOT more money than those in England or America. The natural hair market here doesn't compare to the English or American one at all. It's likely the same products here can be found much cheaper in a different country. This is why I tend to buy my hair products in bulk on sale with my additional Student discount.

Both the Shampoo and Conditioner are currently on sale in Boots for €6.86c for 385ml bottles!


For the price you are paying you'd expect some pretty good quality and I personally was not disappointed.

Shampoo Quality

I shampoo my hair once every two weeks to get rid of the deeper dirt and clean my scalp. The OGX shampoo not only left my hair feeling squeaky clean but I didn't have any of that rubbery, leather texture to my hair afterwards either. Even the shampoo seemed to trap water to moisturize my hair.
Some days I shampooed without conditioning if I wanted to deep condition later that day or the next morning. My hair would hold moisture for as long as 8 hours before feeling dehydrated which would give me time to run quick errands. This was especially helpful if I didn't want to hide a shower cap under a head wrap while walking around Lidl or Aldi.

Conditioner Quality

I really really enjoyed using this conditioner. If you take nothing from this post or can only afford either or, get the conditioner.

I felt my hair was loaded with moisture after each use of this conditioner. There were days where I'd wash my hair and leave the house with lovely juicy curls that glowed with health.


My hair's elasticity increased which was great the first day or two after a wash because my hair would look longer and held moisture. But by day three or four when I'd do my next co-wash the shrinkage was definitely real. With that said, my leave-in cream never gave me the same look as this conditioner on its own did.


As per usual my conditioner ran out before my shampoo because I co-wash a lot more than I shampoo my hair.

However it's taken nearly four to five months for the conditioner to run out and I still have approximately half of the shampoo bottle left.

You really don't need much of this product to do the trick. It's very thick but spreads very well and when put in sufficiently wet hair, it soaks up almost instantaneously. It also smells like luxury ( can that even be a smell?). There's a creamy, luxurious feel that's accompanied by an equally creamy coconut smell.

It'd take a very long time to run out of this product depending on use. I've been somewhat lazy with my hair this season but these products have helped me through the Autumn and Winter so far and I'll continue with the shampoo for the rest of the winter as I test out a new conditioner for the rest of the season. I'll tell you all about that when the time comes.

For this product I'd rate it a must have for any 4C girl who struggles with moisture and is as lazy ( or just not on top of thier game all the time ) as me. It makes Wash-and-Go so much easier and also beneficial to your hair and not just a quick moisture top up to buy yourself a few hours before the next top up.

Do you use either of these products or have you tried them?

What do you think of them? Let me know in the comments.
