AMW Reviews: Neolia Shampoo and Conditioner

Organic hair care products?  Though my scalp is quite sensitive and dry and I probably need it than most of you, I tend to steer clear from these types of shampoo and conditioner as I've got a fair share of "tangled", "string-y" and mega dry hair that's difficult to manage. 

Once I learned I was pregnant, I've decided to keep those shampoos and conditioners meant for color-treated hair and rummaged through my haircare stash and picked this one up as the Paraben-free ingredient called my name!

AMW says ---
  • Super cute packaging.  
  • The shampoo smells wonderful!
  • Doesn't cause my scalp to itch.
  • No dandruff.
  • Hair feels light and easy to comb.
  • Organic.
  • Paraben-free.
  • I hope the conditioner would smell as equally great as the shampoo.
  • Conditioner may not be enough for dry and course hair.
A shampoo and conditioner set that doesn't cause my scalp to itch.  My hair is dandruff-free and hair feels light and easy to manage. Though this combination isn't meant for hair that's super dry and sensitized, this is the first organic shampoo and conditioner combination I've tried that doesn't make my hair dry and tangled.

  • If your hair is colored or sensitized, it is important to do at least once a week deep-conditioning treatment to maintain hair's moisture.
  • Peel off the sticker ONLY if you can differentiate the shampoo and conditioner base on cap color (brown cap is shampoo, white cap is conditioner.)  I excited peeled off the sticker and got confused which is which!  *laughs*
  • Massage shampoo onto hair and scalp, wait for a couple of minutes before rinsing for deep cleansing.
  • Conditioner doesn't feel thick, I can even use it on my roots down to the tips and it never wears my hair down.
Will I repurchase?
The shampoo --- yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
People with sensitive scalp.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Landmark Supermarket, Rustans and SM Supermarkets for Php310.00 (approx $8.15) each.  Feel free to check Sample Room every now and then and pray for samples! :)

Shampoo and conditioner without the sticker.
Looks great inside the bathroom.

    1. I know what you mean! hahahah :) Me too!

  2. Ok I am praying for samples hahaha


  3. Nikki, you might also want to try the Olive Oil shampoo from Oryspa. It's a local organics brand, and I've been loving their products since lat year. Because it doesn't have as many chemicals, it's not as "mabula" as a regular shampoo, but you can add baking soda (yes! from your kitchen!) to make it more foamy. Here's their FB page:

    1. thanks for sharing! I will have a look!

  4. omg the bottles are so adorable!! Kinda ridiculous that they dont have an extra set of Shampoo and Conditioner words though

    1. I know what you mean Isabel, I was excited and surprised it was differentiated by the colors of their cap though :D

  5. Hi Nikki, I just stumbled on your blog through the Next blog button on blogger!!! I also did a post on what's in your shampoo but from a scientific point of view. I leave you the link for the first post, the second instalement of that mini-serie was specifically on Paraben, explaining why the public thinks it's unsafe when really it's not (this is a full scientific review written in easy words)! The third instalement is on SLS, the detergent found in shampoo. I hope you find these posts interesting.

  6. hi, both the conditioner and shampoo are no longer available at SM, shopwise, landmark and rustans since February . I've been using this product for a long time as it really has no hairfall. I used it day and night. Where can I buy the product?


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
