Review: BASIC Hair Care Line



This line is full of great products for any hair type but they are especially great for dry, damaged, natural or coloured hair.


Conditioning Shampoo: My hair felt very soft & healthy after using this.

Celerity Moisturizing Conditioner: This product helped to add extra moisture back to my hair & the scent is very refreshing! This product contains Vitamin E for scalp health & Panthenol: natural conditioner produced by skin.

Both products have these key ingredients:
Coconut Oil for moisture retention & Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein to enhance shine and gloss and protect hair from damage.



Boost Sulfate Free Shampoo: This product is great for colour treated & natural hair because it won't strip your hair.

Boost Rapid Restoration Conditioner: This product is very moisturizing & gives great slip when detangling.

Both products have these key ingredients:
Quinoa Extract- containing essential amino acids for hair strength and extend colour treated hair & Coconut Oil



Leave in Conditioner: This product is great to spray in your hair right after you have washed it. You can use this as a styler if you have straight hair & depending on your curls/hair thickness.
Key ingredients: Meadofoamate Oil to help retain moisture and detangle hair & Orange extract for antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties
Boost Conditioning Treatment Key Ingredients: Quinoa Extract & Hydrolyzed Silk Protein for improved manageability.

These products worked great for me & both have a nice scent!



Carbon Tea Tree Shampoo: This product contains activated charcoal which detoxes & has other benefits. Other essential oils include: tea tree, lemon grass, peppermint & pink grapefruit. This product is also sulfate, paraben & drug FREE! :)

Tea Tree Deep Conditioner: Has moisturizing ingredients such as: mango butter, shea butter & olive oil.

Unfortunately these products didn't work well for me because I found the tea tree oil sensation to be too strong. However I will continue using these products in my hair extensions.


Carbon Tea Tree Pomade: This product is great for styling your hair & adding a light hold. It's creamy and very moisturising (perfect for those Winter months or when your hair is dry)

Key Ingredients: Activated charcoal Baobab oil, tea tree oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil & coconut oil

TIP: If you are sensitive to the sensation of tea tree oil, I'd suggest rubbing this in your palms and distributing this to the ends of your hair. If that sensation doesn't bother you then you can evenly distribute a small amount of this pomade in your hair for some added moisture or for styling.


How BASIC worked for my hair:

My hair was in need of some moisture and it was time to take my flat ironed hair back to it's natural state! Here is what my hair looked like before & then after using the Boost Sulfate Free Shampoo & Boost Rapid Restoration Conditioner:
