We love to go as natural as we can and love our oils. When we were given the option to review some Emu Oil and Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner from Koru Naturals, we were excited. Well, I was more than anyone else!
As part of this review, we received a single 2 oz bottle of 100% Grade A Emu Oil and the Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner 8 oz set. The shampoo and conditioner also have lavender, chamomile, peppermint and rosehip oils in them.
Since I had never used Emu Oil before this, I wanted to see what it was good for. This oil is wonderful! It is a wonderful moisturizer and very little is needed when it is used. But Emu oil is not just good for a moisturizer, you can use this wonder oil for hair conditioning, dry scalp, cuticle care, stretch marks, arthritis comfort, muscle aches and joint stiffness. We decided to use it as a carrier oil for our essential oils. By doing this, we were able to combine the benefits. The principal loved to have this oil used in his back rubs. The first thing he noticed and commented on was the fact that it wasn’t greasy. He didn’t feel like he had to wipe his back off before putting on his shirt and he was so much more comfortable because of this. Not only this, but he noticed that his stiffness in his back (where he has had surgery) was not as bad and more bearable. So, we call that a win-win in our books!
Now, the shampoo and conditioner is something I was looking forward to the most! I love my “mostly” quiet time in the shower, and a good shampoo and conditioner set is something that is a treat. With the use of Manuka Oil and Honey, your hair is rid of impurities, and I noticed this right away. I loved the smell and the feeling of using this set, and as my hair was drying (air not blower) I noticed it seemed “frizzier” than normal. After doing a comb through, that frizzy went away and I noticed my hair feeling smoother. By the end of the week, and more uses of the set, I noticed shinier hair that felt cleaner for longer periods of time…which is a wonderful thing for a mom of 4 and a newborn in that mix! It was good to know that even if I couldn’t get a shower as often as I hoped, I still had clean looking, and feeling hair! Now Little Miss didn’t want to miss out on using the “special” shampoo! I have been using the “grown up” shampoo and conditioner with her, and she loved being able to use mommy’s shampoo. I noticed the same frizz as her hair was drying after the first use, but it also went away when combed. With Little Miss, I also noticed that her hair stayed more manageable through the day.
All of these products were wonderful items! We loved them and use them almost daily! They have become a part of our routine. I am in love with them and plan on purchasing more to replenish my stock as I need. I have to say the biggest selling point on them is the non-greasy emu oil! This ranks the highest in my books. And the feeling of my hair with the shampoo and conditioner makes me not want to use those artificial off the shelf shampoos that I have been using.
