You probably heard of all the raves and boasts about L'Occitane en Provence's Almond Milk Concentrate and their infamous Shea Butter Hand Cream.. if not, I highly recommend these items too!!

But today I wanted to talk about their shampoo.. and mind you I have pretty lengthy and somewhat of colored, straightened, and damaged hair.. and I have used alot of great shampoos out there (like the Moroccan Oil, CHI, Kiehl's, and other products sold at your salons) but the only thing is I really really hate the feeling of oily hair.. and I feel after the wash and blow dry.. most of these products leave your hair feeling blah.. although I love the smell of the Moroccan Oil products..

And so last month when I stopped by the L'Occitane en Provence store to pick up more of the shea butter hand creams.. I couldn't help but notice their mini collection of shampoos, conditioners and treatments.. and I thought to myself.. well this is interesting.. but after much discussion with the SA and debate I decided to purchase one bottle of the shampoo.. just to give it a try.. why not? and well.. the rest is pretty much history.. so ladies and gents, I would like to introduce you to.. L'Occitane en Provence hair products! well specifically.. the Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo!! TA~DA~

Not to sound too scientific or go all dermato on you.. but this shampoo has 5 essential oils; angelica, lavender, geranium, ylang-ylang and patchouli.. now, while I have no idea what those do, let alone what they are, (lol) all I know is after I blow dry my hair, it really leaves my hair feeling soft and silky without the oiliness or flatness. I sounded just a tad commercially there too. lol - oh! and it smells devine!

Now, just remember this is a repairing shampoo, so I definitely don't recommend it as a daily use; I use this once every other week and use my regular shampoo (the herbal essence's long term relationship shampoo, which is a great product as well!)

And I do believe that you should switch shampoos every now and then.. because your hair/scalp gets used to it.. it's a very peculiar science if you think about it. But that's besides the point! lol

For those who are opened to trying a good fixer-upper shampoo, I highly recommend. Please let me know what you think of it!

I'm tempted to try it after using their ultra shea butter face cream (which cured a HORRIBLE dry skin/allergic reaction) and their shea hand cream.

Thanks for the review!

Can you use this shampoo and not need a conditioner? Do they make a conditioner? I have very curly hair and without conditioner my hair doesn't cooperate very well.

I definitely agree with you about hair getting used to shampoo and then not working well after a while. I rotate about 3-4 shampoos and my hair stays fluffy and soft.

I love L'Occitane Lemon Verbena - it's a staple for me in the summer and the shea butter hand cream I have stashed everywhere. It makes my hands so soft and I love the scent.

Oh my! Sorry to hear that! I don't think anyone could ever be too cautious when trying face creams.. but that's just me because I have very sensitive and oily skin.. I like water base moisturizers - light in texture and fragrant free.. Thanks for sharing!!! :)

Ohhh is that the hand wash & lotion? The smell is soooooo fresh!!! And definitely agree 100% on the Shea hand cream being stashed just about everywhere! lol
And yes, they have conditioner and even a hair mask.. I asked them to give me samples when I bought the shampoo just to test it out first

I've recently fallen in love with the Immortelle line of skincare!

The brightening moisture mask is divine for my thirsty skin. I didnt know my skin was that dry. This mask and the Divine cream makes my skin dewy again and my complexion is even and bright!

/\ You're right - it wasn't the L'Occitone but something else.

I love these products.

do their shampoos have sulfates? i'd like to stay with sulfate free shampoos but l'occitane en provence definitely has some amazing products.
