Review: My hair is baby fine, thin and often looks lanky, flat and lacking in style, so I regularly utilise an array of haircare products to keep it under control. I also suffer from a sensitive scalp, therefore must be cautious what I use, especially when it comes to shampoo, because most mainstream, supermarket brand shampoos irritate my scalp something chronic. To top it off, I have  oily locks that need frequent washing, although, for the past few years, I have relied on a dry shampoo rather than daily washing to minimise the greasiness. All of this ongoing maintenance and overkill of products contributes to massive buildup and chemical remnants, which causes my mop to loose its lustre, making it drab, limp and appear unclean. The best way to remove all that buildup and to productively maintain my oily hair is to invest in a quality clarifying shampoo, such as O&M Original Detox Deep Cleansing Shampoo to achieve that deep and thorough cleanse.

The O&M Original Detox Deep Cleansing Shampoo targets my oily hair concerns, focuses on restoring and regulating the pH levels to neutralise excess oil and provides an intensive cleanse without drying or stripping the natural oils, by keeping it sufficiently hydrated. It is infused with gorgeous botanicals, such as Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil with antiseptic properties for an invigorating therapy that cools, calms and soothes the scalp, assisting to repress dandruff and the symptoms of a flaky, itching scalp. The additional benefit of pro vitamin B5 is ideal for fortifying my neglected tresses when used consistently over a period of time. Furthermore, it’s an ideal clarifying shampoo, which I adopt as an essential step in my permanent haircare regime, specifically for the purpose of eradicating stubborn dirt and residue, along with the side effects associated with tropical living, where contributing factors such as salt and chlorine can wreak havoc on my strands.

Enriched with the goodness of natural extracts and active minerals, O&M Original Detox Deep Cleansing Shampoo has a conditioning formula free of any nasty chemicals to avoid aggravating my scalp. It is clear in colour with a thick gel-like consistency, imparting a delectable, refreshing scent that smells something like a packet of ‘Minties’ confectionary - definitely good enough to eat! I only require a small amount of product, about the size of a five cent coin, which is ample to work into a slightly creamy, gentle lather. Because it’s not loaded with sulphates, it doesn’t froth up into a mountain of foamy bubbles; yet it effortlessly distributes from root to tip, adequately cleaning my hair and scalp. After washing and towel drying, my mane feels incredibly light and airy, instantly repelling the unwanted build up that previously weighed it down. I also noticed that when I shampooed without a conditioner, my strands weren’t overly knotty, tangled or withered, instead it was smooth and resilient, brushing out with ease.

Despite being suitable to use on a daily basis, using O&M Original Detox Deep Cleansing Shampoo, once or twice a week in place of my normal shampoo suits my needs perfectly. I feel those with a drier hair or scalp would need to use it less frequently to avoid unnecessary damage. I love how it leaves my locks considerably soft and revitalised, with heaps more bounce. As its name suitably suggests, the O&M Original Detox Shampoo prompts ultra clean, more manageable tresses that remain feeling and looking clean for days, whilst also ensuring a healthy, non-irritable scalp. At almost $30 a bottle, it is significantly more than I would normally budget on for a shampoo, although, this isn’t just any shampoo! Conceding it effectively removes all unwanted gunk from my mane with remarkable results, I’ve determined it’s indeed a worthwhile expenditure. Anyone who desires a shampoo, primarily aimed at clarifying, which is sulphate and paraben free, not tested on animals and smells ahh-mazing, then I suggest the O&M Original Detox Shampoo.
