Speed Review: OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner



Today's review is of OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner, which I was recently sent to try. I've tried a few products from OGX over the years but wasn't previously familiar with the Coconut Milk range.

In describing the range, which comprises the Shampoo & Conditioner (including travel sized versions) along with an oil mist and serum, OGX state, "Is your hair ready for a tropical holiday? Retreat to the islands. This exclusive blend with coconut milk, egg white proteins and coconut oils helps bring out your hair's natural strength, elasticity, hydration and balance- all with a shine inspired by the tropics."

On first impressions, I thought that the packaging was in keeping with the OGX branding and affordable price point. Personally, I'd have preferred if there was something other than the text on the plastic bottles to differentiate between the Shampoo & Conditioner for ease of use in the shower, although some customers may like that they match. Admittedly, the colour coding to reflect the key ingredient does make shopping the ranges (there's quite a few!) easier in store. Both bottles feature flip top lid dispensers and I found the directions to be clear and easy to follow.

Firstly, I tried the OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo which is described as a "deliciously creamy and nourishing blend... helps to strengthen and hydrate your hair, leaving it softly scented, super soft and glowing". The shampoo is a white gel and I found the flip top lid dispenser well suited to the texture of the product. I was able to work the shampoo into a generous lather, which rinsed away easily (as tends to be the case with shampoo).

Next up, the OGX Coconut Milk Conditioner. This is designed to leave hair with "more strength and elasticity, and a hint of the tropics that will float with you all day." Further to my earlier comments about wishing that the two products had different packaging, when I came to use the conditioner, I felt even more strongly about this. The conditioner is a thick white cream and whilst I found it was ok to dispense using the flip top lid dispenser at first, as more of the product was used, it was more of a struggle. I feel that the texture means that the conditioner would be better suited to packaging such as a tube. Packaging aside, I found the conditioner easy to work through my hair. When it came to rinsing, I'd say that the conditioner had average rinsability.

Both products have a sweet coconut fragrance which is an obvious choice to match the key ingredient. I found it to be reminiscent of holidays, as will be the case for many people. The scent lingered delicately in my hair once it was dried and styled.

Following use, my hair was left looking shiny and feeling very soft. I also noticed that tangles were noticeably reduced so the products might be worth a look if this is a concern for you. I was impressed that my sensitive scalp wasn't irritated but did find that my roots became greasy very quickly (which is unusual for me) so these products are probably best suited to someone with dry hair.

I wasn't "wowed" by OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner but they did the job and are fine as an affordable duo if you pick them up on offer. In my opinion, they aren't worth the £7 each (for 385ml) price tag.
