This is NOT a traditional “Dear John” letter. I am not breaking up with anyone. In fact, I am starting a new relationship. A new love affair, with John Masters Organics.
I don’t know what took me so long to try John Masters. I’ve had so many failed flings with other hair care— this one was not natural enough for me, this one was no good for me, and who could forget this incredibly smelly attempt?
Well, this one is just right.
The search is over. I’m with John now.
Last week, I went to the John Masters Organics Flagship store. I was sad at first, because, in addition to being a store, it used to also be a salon where they used only John Masters products, and I was hoping to have my hair done there. But I quickly got over the disappointment. The store is wonderful– light and airy, and full of every product the brand makes. You can smell and test everything to your heart’s content, and the gentleman working at the store was so knowledgeable and helpful, it made up for it no longer being a salon as well. He helped me choose all the right products for my naturally curly hair and answered my copious questions.
I already use JMO’s Sweet Orange and Silk Protein Styling Gel, and the man at the store had a great suggestion to combine equal parts styling gel and one of their detanglers (leave-in conditioners– there are several scents and also unscented– he particularly recommended the Citrus and Neroli). I can’t wait to try it!
Meanwhile, I decided to try the Lavender Rosemary Shampoo for Normal Hair and the Lavender and Avocado Intensive Conditioner. After several washes and having styled my hair both curly and straight after use, I can say that I love this shampoo and conditioner! They smell great (and not too strong!), feel luxurious, and do their jobs well. The shampoo takes a little effort to lather, but once you get it going, it’s perfect and leaves my hair feeling clean but not *too* squeaky clean, ie it doesn’t strip my hair of all moisture. And the conditioner leaves my hair manageable, moisturized, and easy to comb through, without weighing it down. Basically, they’re perfect products. I am totally in love.
Stay tuned– I plan to continue trying and loving more things from John Masters. They even make skin care! I can’t wait to try it all!
