Hair Care - Friday Favourites

At The Amazing Blog, we love switching up our hair care products. We know that after using the same shampoo and conditioner for a while, our hair just doesn’t reap the same benefits anymore. So to keep our hair soft and shiny, we’ve been testing out a few new products with some exotic new ingredients.


We all know that harsh winters dry out our skin, but it’s also important to remember that it’s also drying on our hair! The new OGX Argan Oil of Morrocco Extra Strength collection is the perfect way to revive and renew your weather-worn locks. We’re all very familiar with this beloved brand, so we were especially excited to receive the Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Strength Shampoo, Conditioner, and Miracle In-Shower Oil.

This ultra-hydrating shampoo and conditioner duo contain a potent blend of extra-strength argan oil and silk proteins to nourish your damaged hair. The sulfate-free products also form a rich lather that stimulates and rejuvenates your scalp while cleansing. You should get ready for compliments because they also have an amazingly soft and sweet scent that really lingers after we get out of the shower. The Miracle In-Shower Oil is an amazing, multi-purpose in-shower oil for head-to-toe hydration. You can add a few drops to boost your shampoo or conditioner, moisturise your skin, or smooth onto damp clean hair to prevent damage. It also has the same luxurious, soft smell as the rest of the collection.

We love OGX products because they’re effective and also easy on your purse! Each product is available for £7.99 from your local Boots.

We saved the most interesting product for last on this list—Repcillin offers an Extra Mild Shampoo with Crocodile Oil and Wild Harvested Baobab Oil and a Hair Conditioner with Crocodile Oil and Organic Marula Oil. Repcillin products are based on crocodile oil which is obtained from the fat of the Nile crocodile native to Africa. The oil has shown to possess antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, and it has been used to treat a variety of skin conditions including eczema, acne, and allergy symptoms. Repcillin only processes crocodile oil that is a by-product of commercial crocodile farms so that no wild animals are harmed.

The Extra Mild Shampoo is perfect for sensitive scalps and thirsty hair. The blend of naturally derived ingredients gently cleanses the hair and scalp without stripping away natural oils. The crocodile oil helps prevent breakage and nourished dry scalps whilst the wild harvested baobab oil locks in moisture. A blend of Lavender, Rosemary, Geranium, and Sandalwood essential oils also helps balance, condition, and moisturise hair while leaving behind a clean earthy scent. The Hair Conditioner hydrates, detangles and thickens, and helps to restore and maintain the health of the cuticle layer of the hair. Best of all, the products contain no parabens, no sulfates, no mineral oils, no phthalates, no artificial colours, and no synthetic fragrances.
