Okay, it’s impossible that something could solve ALL my problems– how boring would life be if that were true?!– but for years, a big problem in my Product Junkie life has been The Great Shampoo And Conditioner Dilemma.
I just couldn’t find one that was “green” enough AND effective enough. And Jordan was no help: every time I complained to her about my Great Shampoo And Conditioner Dilemma, she would casually mention the amazing Weleda shampoo she’d picked up in Europe a few years back. Yup, a great product by my favorite brand that WASN’T AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES. Not helpful!
So I’d look longingly at Jordan’s smooth, bouncy locks, dreaming of the day when I could go to Europe and grab a lifetime supply of that magical Weleda shampoo and conditioner. At this rate, that trip to Europe will have to wait till my daughter finishes high school, and that’s a lot of hair-washes I have to get through in the next 15 years!
I was delighted a few months ago when Weleda announced they were launching haircare lines in the U.S. Delighted doesn’t even come close!– elated. Ecstatic. Overjoyed.
But for months I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then, one day, at Whole Foods Brooklyn, while replenishing my supplies of Weleda diaper cream, baby face cream, and baby body wash, I saw it. In the baby section: Weleda Oat Shampoo and Conditioner! The elusive bird!
I bought it. I used it. And it’s perfect. All my problems solved! Forever! (But I still want to go to Europe!)
What I’m using:
Oat Replenishing Shampoo: I only wash my hair once a week, but I think this would work daily for dry hair. It’s classic, simple, foamy, and has just the right amount of “clean” scent.
Oat Replenishing Conditioner: Not too greasy, not too dry. Just right! I think this would be good for ALL hair types, even though it says it’s for dry hair.
Oat Replenishing Treatment: Sometimes I use this instead of the above conditioner (not in addition to!). When I need a little extra moisture, this Treatment is perfect. It’s not all that much heavier than the regular conditioner, but just adds a little bonus for coarse hair like mine once in a while.
