Product Review: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo (sulfate-free)

I am a bonafide product junkie. I like to consider it more of a hobby than a problem :) and I think its time that others benefit from my hobby. While I enjoy trying new things, if I find something I love, I stick with it. Commence product reviews! I have been using this shampoo for almost a year now...that should tell you something.

Price: $5.49 for 12oz at my local beauty supply store

My Experience: I love this shampoo!! No, seriously, I LOVE this shampoo! If my hair feels nice going into a wash, it feels great after shampooing with this. If my hair doesn't feel nice going into a wash, it does after. I really feel it does what it claims to do with maybe one exception. My hair feels soft after washing and before conditioning. It doesn't strip my hair at all, which makes sense because it is a sulfate-free shampoo. It lathers! Now, some people have issues with sulfate-free shampoos because they don't always lather, which just doesn't seem right to some. I'm in that group of people; I don't like when my shampoo doesn't lather. This passes that test. Even though I don't apply the shampoo directly to the length of my hair, I still think this helps with detangling. Because of the fact that I don't detangle my hair before washing, I notice how much easier it is to remove tangles with my fingers after shampooing. 

While I do feel that my hair is shiny, I don't think I would give all the credit to shampooing with this. I can't say that I noticed a shine difference when I started using it either. So, that would be my exception, but I'm also not using this for shine enhancement therefore, it's not really important to me anyway. It both cleans and moisturizes my hair and that's what matters. I also like the scent. It's very light and it doesn't linger. As you can see, my bottle is almost gone, but I've had it for a long time and I wash my hair close to weekly. Needless to say, even a "generous amount" goes a long way. I will be purchasing this again. It's a staple for me.

Moral of the story: if you're looking for a new shampoo, especially a moisturizing one, try this one out! I recommend it. 

Has anyone else tried this? Like it, love it, never want to use it again??


  1. Nice Review! I really like this shampoo as well and its the only shampoo that so moisturizing. It doesn't lather for me unless my hair is squeaky clean from clarifying but I have a review on how I get my hair to lather.

    1. Thanks Tomes! Sometimes, if it doesn't lather initially, the second time it always does for me. I'll have to check out your review, too!

  2. The shampoo feels good going on and while lathering but the end result is not desirable. I find it coats my hair and impacts my hair ability to accept moisture.

    1. Wow, JC, it's so interesting to find out it has such a different effect on your hair. That really proves that what works for one person may not work for the next. Thanks for sharing!
