I have been going through the phase where I have been searching for that one product that my hair will love. While I love the oils and shampoos I use for my hair, I was still looking that *something* which my hair would absolutely love. My prayers were answered post a wait. I received the Pre Shampoo Deep Conditioner from Rustic Art as a part of the hamper that I had won. I have never used a pre-shampoo conditioner and needless to say I was curious and waiting to use this product. There are three ways you can use this pre-shampoo deep conditioner:
- Take the desired quantity and apply on dry hair from roots to the tips. Leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash of with preferably a Rustic Art shampoo.
- Get into the shower. Wet your hair. Take the desired quantity and apply on dry hair from roots to the tips. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Wash of with preferably a Rustic Art shampoo. ( I keep it on for at least 5 mins)
- Mix this conditioner with the shampoo you want to use, wet hair, apply from root to the tips. Leave it on for at least 3 minutes.
I have used it the second and third way till now, because I thought applying it in dry hair would use up a lot of the conditioner and I was not willing to sacrifice so much of it! Priced at INR 250, this
200 ml 100 ml ( thank you for the correction Shruti) deep conditioner has a shelf life of 18 months. The first fragrance that you get is predominantly sandalwood. It is white in colour and has a very creamy texture to it. I pumped out the quantity that I use and let it stay in my hand for about 1o seconds. Do you notice the oil at the sides? That oil smells of rich coconut oil which will hydrate your hair.
I have used this product about 6 times till now and each time it has left my scalp less itchy and my hair manageable and soft. I have run out of my stock of organic shampoos at the moment. I have been using it with Flying Fox by Lush now and I would be adding an update to the post about how the deep conditioner fares with the Rustic Art shampoo as well as the Soultree shampoo.
My hair gets dry and itchy in the winter season and I need to keep it moisturised very often using cream based conditioners and of course, oiling my hair regularly. I am sure this one will be absolutely perfect for use in the winter. Another way that I tried using this was post a shampoo, I took abut 2-3
pumps and applied to my hair and let it dry naturally, I think I used too much because my hair looked oily. I plan to use this again the same way, with less than a pump quantity and see how it fares.
This one is a must buy for those who want to tame the tresses. I am not sure how this will work on damaged hair and oily hair. You may need to use more of the conditioner and leave it in for a longer time if you have damaged hair for it to work well for your tresses. The only thing that I don’t like about the product is the packaging. I would have loved it if it was packaged in a tube because it would have made it easier to dispense the product. I need at least 6 – 8 pumps ( the quantity showed in the pic) of the conditioner to apply from the roots to the tips. Or maybe they should have a bigger pump head that allows more quantity to get dispensed.
