Hi everyone and welcome to my first post of 2017! One of the things I am trying to be more mindful of this year is the ingredients in the products I use. Actually, since last summer, I've avoided using hair products with sulfates so my hair and scalp don't get dried out. So here is a post about some new hair care that uses good ingredients!
Maui Moisture is a new vegan hair care line that is inspired by the islands of Hawaii, and has ingredients that are super nourishing. It is developed by Vogue International, which is also behind the successful hair care line OGX.
The blue Nourish + Moisture set that I've tried smells tropical and delicious, like coconuts. It is infused with coconut milk, guava oil and mango butter! The shampoo has a quite thick texture, that it almost holds its shape when I squeeze it onto my palm. Something to note about the Maui Moisture products is that unlike other shampoos and conditioners that have water as their first ingredient, these list pure aloe juice as the first ingredient. Which explains why it has such a rich and thick texture! It feels so nourishing, but not heavy, on the hair and I just love how it smells.
The conditioner has a bit of a lighter texture than the shampoo. I'd say that if you have relatively healthy hair, you can just use the shampoo and it will be great at hydrating and nourishing your hair. When I received these products in late October, I tended to use the shampoo more. But then I got some balayage done to my hair, and I found I wanted some more nourishment, so I used the conditioner from then on. The conditioner also does a wonderful job at hydrating and nourishing if you need that extra bit of treatment.
Since the products are sulfate-free, they are good for those who dye their hair, or if you just want to retain moisture and nourishment in your locks. All of the products are made with aloe juice as the main ingredient and they are infused with coconut water! So you are getting a lot of nourishment. I tried the Nourish + Moisture set which comes in blue packaging, but there are also other ranges aimed at accomplishing different things! There are also treatment oils and hair masks, which I am thinking of trying when I see these in store.
The Maui Moisture products do not contain: parabens, phthalates, sulfate surfactants, colorants, petrolatum, silicones, gluten, or mineral oils.
These products should be available in Canadian drugstores this January 2017. It is also sold at Ulta.
