Buy This NOT That: Shampoo Edition

Posted on November 13 2019

This year has been an explosion of content on Chicks and Salsa and we are grateful for all the partnerships we have had with brands that we are familiar with and others that are new to us. In bringing some brand awareness to you all, we have tried several different shampoos and here I have ranked them from best to worst. Hopefully this will help you make an informed decision about what is right for your hair next time you go shopping.

Hair Care is Self Care

I have ranked these shampoos according a few criteria. 

1- Lather – When a shampoo lathers up, it allows for a full scrub of the hair follicles and leaves the hair itself feeling really clean. 

2- Texture – The thickness, stickiness, and consistency of the shampoo are all the components that I have factored into texture.

3- Overall Impression – Size, packaging, and scent all fall into this category.

Argan Coco

Argan Coco

This is hands down the winner across all categories.  It feels great, smells amazing, and lathers up like a full bubble bath on your head.  This all natural shampoo is available exclusively on their website.  Luckily we have a steep discount code for you so that you can experience Argan Coco for yourself.

“It’s A 10” Hair Care

As the only one in this category to come with a pump, I give it major kudos on packaging.  Am I the only one obsessed with pumps on my shampoos and conditioners? For those of you who blow dry often this one really preps your hair for styling. It leaves the hair feeling light and bouncy. I have NO IDEA how they do it, but this one comes in second for me!

Garnier Whole Blends

This organic honey blend delivers on texture and scent.  Let’s face it, Garnier knows that they are doing.  It also lathers well, but not as good as Argan Coco.  This one comes in a close second/third.



Wow Skin Science

Wow Skin Science

This company has a really good concept by incorporating apple cider vinegar into their product, unfortunately you can smell it when you use it…gross!  It also lacks a lather that cleans your hair the way you would expect from a shampoo and conditioner combination. 



Briogeo This brand has so many good products as part of their product catalog, check out my video here on their root volumizer (amazing!) BUT their smoothie shampoo and conditioner leaves much to be desired.  The ingredients include fruits like bananas and coconuts which of course means that they smell and feel amazing.  The shampoo and conditioner don’t leave you feeling like you have really discovered something special.  I can’t really think of any good reason to buy this product.

Hopefully you have heard of or tried some of these and agree with my assessment. I have long hair and I am kind-of particular about what I think works well with my hair.

Thanks for checking out this post.
