Product Review – Surface Shampoo & Conditioner

When I was in Essential Salon & Spa earlier this week, the owner and stylists talked so highly about a line they carry, called Surface, that I had to try it. I bought a big bottle of Surface Trinity Strengthening Shampoo and was given a sample pack of the Surface Bassu Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner. This line sounds amazing; from it’s commitment to being exclusively sold at independent salons (no big chains or beauty supply stores) and sponsoring World Vision children through their product’s sales, to being 100% vegan but still paying close attention to the ingredients, making sure their products still perform. I was so excited to try this line out…

The shampoo and conditioner both had a really nice smell – I can’t quite describe it except to say it smells fresh and clean, as a shampoo should;) The shampoo worked great with a little bit going a long way and what stuck out to me was that my hair felt smooth and silky after rinsing the shampoo out, I couldn’t wait to see what the conditioner did. The real test for me lately is when I get out of the shower as I mentioned here. This shampoo did the trick for me, no irritation and no build up left behind.

The conditioner was nice and thick – I know that doesn’t always equal greatness but it’s a good start – and I didn’t have to use too much for my long hair. I could easily get my comb through my strands and my hair still felt soft once I got out of the shower. I continued to have silky hair as I blowdried and it wasn’t weighed down. What more could you ask for? 100% natural ingredients but performs as well as silicone based conditioners, I’m in love :)

Overall I give this line two thumbs up – it is by far the best all natural/vegan line I have tried. I love that it’s extremely hypo-allergenic but it still performs to my standards.

    I have tried dozens of natural/organic/vegan shampoos and conditioners and still haven’t found one that works with greasy hair. Hopefully this one is it! It sounds good.

    Everyone really sees and feels the difference just ONE time using it. You WILL too. There’s nothing else like SURFACE Products. We have been using SURFACE since it 1st came out 2008.

    It sounds great, why don’t they put their ingredient lists online so you can check them out?

    I am using Monat Hair care products at the present for it’s hair growth and renewal properties, which is working for me.

    I will try Surface tommorrow when I get my hair cut. Would like to compare ingredients with Monat and surface. They both look to be fabulous products, with Monat more into the hair growth properties.
