From the Kinky Curly Files: Pura D'or Hair Care Review




It's been a while since I've done a hair care review. That's because I haven't tried anything new for about a year (I think). I was lucky to be chosen by Pura D'or to try three of their hair care products:
  1. Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo
  2. Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner -- Lavender Vanilla
  3. Pure and Organic Argan Oil
So how well did these three hair care products perform? Read on to find out.

Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo

One of the first things a person notices about a hair care product is its scent. I must admit, compared to many other shampoos it is not the most pleasing scent. It doesn't smell awful but it also lacks the pleasing aromas most of us are used to. The closest thing I can say is it smells like a balsam shampoo but more "green".

Being a naturalista, what I love about this shampoo is that it is SLS (Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate)-free. This is important for kinky curly hair because SLS-free shampoo is gentler on our hair. This shampoo is not only gentle but it cleans well. I had some product buildup from using dry shampoo. This worked well at removing it. My hair felt clean and the strong, almost balsamy smell of the shampoo was not as potent on my hair after rinsing it out. The most important result, my hair did not feel dry.

Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner -- Lavender Vanilla

The Lavender Vanilla conditioner makes up for the scent of the shampoo. As soon as I applied it to my hair, the shampoo's smell was gone. Again, for my hair type I love a conditioner that has a lot of slip (enough slickness to make a comb slide through hair easily). Since my hair is so tightly coiled, that is the only way conditioner can be evenly distributed through it.

You are supposed to allow this conditioner to sit on your hair for two minutes. I let it rest for five minutes -- long enough for me to take a selfie and post to Instagram. I rinsed about 90% of the conditioner from my hair. I always leave a little in for styling purposes. This conditioner does not weigh hair down. So if you want a conditioner to add weight to help elongate your curls, this is not the conditioner for you. The way I can tell that it does not weigh hair down is the amount of shrinkage. When kinky coils are clean with little to no buildup, shrinkage is major. See for yourself on my Instagram post.

Pure and Organic Argan Oil

For all of my talk in the past about my love of hair oils, I had not used pure argan oil yet. Thanks to Pura D'or I got my first chance. I started using this before I used the shampoo and conditioner. I applied it to my scalp and to my ends. It conditioned my ends and scalp very well. After washing my hair, I used some of the oil. It helped to soften my hair and absorbed fast into my scalp. I have future plans for this oil so look for some hair recipes in the coming months.

Top Reasons I Like Pura D'or

  1. Gentle Cleansing of Hair
  2. Volume - Does not weigh hair down
  3. Adequate moisture
  4. Scalp conditioning

I give all products an "A" grade. My hair loves them and responds well to all three. The shampoo does state it helps with hair loss. I did not use it long enough to see if it helps reduce the amount of shedding that occurs or not. I will report back later on that.

Keep in mind this is not a drugstore brand so the price is not in that market. Pura D'or's price point is near that of Wen's prices. Also, you get more than the 12 ounces Wen sells at Sephora.


UPDATE 04/13/2015: The amount of shedding did decrease. So it does live up to that attribute.
