I see myself as a simple soul when it comes to washing my hair – either just shampoo or if the shower gel is suitable for hair then I’ll use that. So when Male Organics gave me some Headonism Organic Haircare Conditioner (scent 2 – sensuality) to test, I was a bit wary.
So I did what goes against every fibre of my being. I read the instructions. It soon became clear that while conditioner seems to be a vital component of haircare I’ve missed for 30 years, it is more useful for people with longer hair than mine. A ‘number 2’ trim doesn’t give much hair to “moisturise, nourish, rebuild and protect”. But despite not having a large toothcomb (to be honest I may have one, I just have no idea what it is) I ploughed on and immersed myself in the world of hair conditioning.
Headonism Conditioner Scent 2 is a 100% organic conditioner (although not certified) that has a combination of herbs and oils including the amazingly-named Goldenseal, Jojoba and Safflower. It seems everyone but me knows how conditioner works, so after being instructed to leave it on for a while I set about it. First of all the bottle is amazing. As I pulled the wooden/cork stopper out of the glass bottle I thought a genie would pop out. Alas that wasn’t the case, but the conditioner is quite thick so I actually had a bit of trouble getting it out at first. I can now do it with a decent shake but portion control is a little haphazard, mainly I end up using far too much.
Anyway it works quite nicely, even on my short hair and it leaves it nice and soft. I’m not sure if it makes much difference on me but my girlfriend likes it and any man with a bit longer hair would benefit from it. It’s scented with organic plant oils to evoke desire, luxury, arousal, sensuality and euphoria but seemed a bit odd to me. Not off putting, just a bit weird.
There’s no mention of whether the wooden/cork stopper or glass bottle is made from sustainable or recycled materials, but it is an impressive bottle and at £14 (or £10.50 on sale) from Male Organics it’d make a good present or why not treat yourself?
