Organix Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Let’s take break from skincare reviews and focus on hair care. Today’s post will be a full review on the Organix Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo & conditioner. I was gifted this product a very long time ago and I have only gotten round to using it.

Organix Quenching Coconut Curls has coconut and citrus oil as well as sweet honey to help enhance natural curls and boost shine. It promises to soften hair whilst gently cleansing and conditioning it



The shampoo has a very thick consistency and smells great (tropical coconut obviously), it produces a lot of lather even with a fair amount and surprisingly I can finger detangle, even comb through (slowly, gently and in smaller sections) with the foam.  I always do a double rinse and this shampoo leaves my hair and scalp well cleansed but not stripped.  The shampoo rinses clean and easily


Following with the Quenching conditioner, this product has the same pleasant scent as the shampoo and a thick creamy consistency. Again the conditioner offers a good amount of slip for detangling using a good amount. Whilst I like the shape of the bottle, because of the thick consistency of the conditioner, the shape made it slightly difficult to squeeze out especial when I was trying to get the last bits of it lol.  I usually leave it on for 10-15 mins, and it rinses well and leaves my hair soft.

Did it enhance my curls? No, but most shampoos that claim to do this never do on my kinky hair anyway. Did I see some kinky curl definition? In some parts yes (a few strands clumped together) which just means my hair is well hydrated and moisturised but it wasn’t a wash and go defined curls. I wasn’t expecting curl definition anyway.


It’s worth using definitely, it leaves my hair which tends to be dry well conditioned and moisturised. I like the slip from both the shampoo and conditioner so it means I can detangle as I go along. The shampoo does well to cleanse excess product build up and dirt and the conditioner provides enough slip to detangle and helps to soften the hair. They both smell great but don’t linger too much. Will you get curl definition no, at least not for 4c hair anyway.

These are available on Boots for £6.99 each


Palmer’s Natural Fusions Mallow Root Leave in Conditioner Review

Palmer’s has been one of my favourite drugstore brands for many years. I love both the bodycare and haircare collections which are affordable and easily accessible.

Palmer’s Natural Fusion range was launched this year and is a 5 product strong collection that harnesses natural ingredients for stronger healthier hair. I was gifted the collection a few months back but I have only managed to use two of the items. This post is a full review of the Mallow Root Leave-in conditioner.

The Mallow Root leave-in conditioner promises slip for easy detangling leaving the hair shiny and moisturised. It comes in a spray bottle

Palmer’s Natural Fusions Mallow Root Leave in Conditioner


I am currently on my 2nd bottle of this leave-in with 4 more as backup: this tells you how much I love the product. The conditioner sprays in a very fine mist and has a pleasant scent. I use this conditioner on wash days, immediately after rinsing out my deep conditioner on soaking wet hair but I also use it throughout the week to hydrate and soften my hair.

I have natural 4c hair which is prone to dryness, what I really like about this leave-in is that it actually hydrates and softens the hair, I can see and feel a difference. I don’t usually use my leave-ins for detangling, I prefer to detangle with my conditioner so I can’t comment on the detangling claims of the product. This leave-in also works well for Brazilian hair as a leave-in conditioner. I also generously mist on soaking wet wigs after washing and they dry very soft with a lovely lustre.


This is one of the best spray leave-in conditioners I have used in a very long time. I am halfway through my 2nd bottle and I have been lucky to go to events and have been gifted more, I have 4 more backups. This works so well for my natural 4c hair and it’s super easy to use. It doesn’t weigh the hair down so I am confident it will work for all hair types.

I will recommend and will purchase.

Palmer’s Natural Fusions Mallow Root Leave-in Conditioner is available in Superdrug


Pre-poo Treatments

pre poo treatments

Every naturalista knows a pre poo treatment is a must on wash day, especially if you are going to use a sulfate containing shampoo. Pre poo treatments have many benefits but we can all agree the number benefit is the fact that it protects our hair from drying out during the shampoo process.

There are lots of pre poo treatments readily available and lots of DIY cocktails to experiment with, the choice really depends on what you fancy and how much time you have


Probably the easily and well used pre poo treatment there is and lots of DIY cocktails to try out. You can simply apply your oil of choice and go to shampooing straight away or apply and leave it in for a while with a cap then shampoo. Hot oil treatments are another popular option, heating the oils helps them penetrate deeper into your hair.

Another popular choice for pre poo is conditioners. This is also called reverse shampooing where you deep condition before you shampoo and skip deep conditioning afterwards or lightly condition after. Be sure to use a gentle shampoo so as to retain the conditioning benefits. You can use any type of conditioners from rinse out conditioners to hair masks.  My favourite was TREsemme moisture rich conditioner, £4.99 on Superdrug

I used to use this method for a while but at the moment, I am experimenting with new wash day routines. You can use your favourite conditioner for this.

I found these two DIY hot oil treatments you can experiment with! Of course feel free to do more research and get more videos!
