REVIEW: Maple Holistics Sage Shampoo
Ever since we moved to Vermont, we (my daughter & I) have been having some issues with flaky scalp AKA dandruff. We’ve tried several different shampoos to help with the condition but so far none quite deliver what they promised. We’ve tried Selsun Blue (which is what my dad used to swear by) and NOPE…NA DA, didn’t help.
On top of that, most of the shampoo that treats flaky scalp smells like chemical and FEELS like one.
So when Maple Holistics contacted me and offered us to try one of their product for free, I decided to look it up.
What I chose to review :
Right of the bat, I LOVE that they are Natural & Cruelty Free products. What’s not to like when you can get natural products right? And when I saw they have a product that would solve our problem, I thought maybe I should give it a try.
So after 3 weeks of using the product, I am glad to say that I am a happy customer!
Here are some details on the product itself:
Jojoba Oil, Botanical Keratin, Sage Oil, Peach Kernel Oil, Spikenard Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Rosemary Oil.
Our sage shampoo contains antiseptic properties to reduce dandruff and unclog hair follicles to soothe scalp of itching, flaking, and scaling for noticeable relief. The essential oils of sage, spikenard, and rosemary help stop hair fall, stimulate circulation, and promote healthy hair growth, for thicker hair with more body and bounce. Dandruff-dusted shoulders and clumps of hair in the drain will be a nuisance of the past. Our shampoo is sulfate and paraben-free making it great for all hair types, color treated hair, and sensitive skin.
This shampoo has a strong scent. Sage scent was quite strong. I personally don’t mind it and like the smell of Sage but my daughter was slightly put off by the scent at the beginning. The smell of Lavender on the other hand was never one of my fav but I think it works well together with the Sage scent.
The shampoo feels thick. Definitely not the watery kind. Feels more like a goo? but in a good way.
Instructions says to leave the shampoo on your scalp for 5 minutes or so before you rinse them off…but I got too excited on my first try and didn’t read the instructions -__-” BUT, I DID get compliments from friends and family after that one use - it gives my hair volume as well so that’s a bonus for me. After almost a month of using this shampoo, I’m glad and relieved to say that I have finally found a shampoo that solves my flaky scalp problem. On top of that, after every wash, it gives my scalp this refreshing and tingly sensation which I LOVE.
I would DEFINITELY recommend friends and family because it delivers what it promises. It is NOT a complete cure of dandruff but it can surely eliminate 95% of the problem after just 3-5 wash. Who knows? Maybe continuous use of the Sage Shampoo will eventually get rid of all the dandruff.
