There’s something about the scent of coconut that I find irresistible and soothing. The sweet smell puts me in such a happy state of mind. Maybe it’s because my thoughts drift to the tropics and I can imagine myself lying on the beach while some gorgeous bartender hands me a pina colada…
Before I let my mind wander a bit too far down south, I’ll get to what brought me here in the first place – the LaCoupe Orgnx Coconut and Macadamia Oil Line. Comprised of Shampoo, Conditioner and new additions Intensive Repair Treatment and Leave-In Conditioner, the line takes advantage of the moisturizing and nourishing benefits of organic coconut (do you remember me singing the praises of coconut oil a little while ago? ) and macadamia nut oils.
Used together, this (gluten free for those of you who are interested) line helps to restore hair’s health and softness for a mane that looks shinier and silkier. I personally didn’t give this one a try – I have to stick to my red hair routine – so I asked my lovely mother to be my guinea pig (it’s so nice having someone around who doesn’t mind letting my try things out on them). What were her thoughts? Although the shampoo didn’t provide crazy lather, the products (especially the Intensive Repair Treatment) left her hair feeling extremely soft and healthier after a few washes. Left in for 3 minutes, this treatment deep conditions and restores hair that has been damaged by pollution & other environmental factors (thanks to shea butter, rosemary, chamomile, ivy and avocado). The Leave-In Conditioner (which is perfect for battling the elements with its fortifying properties and UV protection) was one of her favourite products as it kept the restorative feeling of the line continuing even after the shower. And the smell. Oh my gosh, the smell. This line smells so delicious – like you want to put it on top of ice cream, but that would most certainly be a bad idea. I’m going to stick to smelling it. The combination of coconut and macadamia is unreal, sweet and luxurious, and my mom remarked that the scent stayed with her throughout the day. Who needs perfume when using haircare that smells this good?
