Certified organic & cruelty free, John Masters Organics belong to my favorite hair products. I’ve been using for quite some time John Masters Organics Lavender & Rosemary shampoo – alternatively with Rahua Voluminous shampoo – and so far so good.
However when I saw that JM Organics released a special set for fine hair, I had to have a look at it because :
– it contains new ingredients such as spearmint, peppermint, meadowsweet extract and
– the ingredient list is noticeably shorter. I believe in the adage “less is more” (in most
cases, they are always exceptions of course!)
This newly improved formula is specifically made for people with fine or thinning hair and consists of a shampoo and a serum.
Bonus: I got the Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer for Thinning Hair for free (there was a limited offer a few weeks ago)
1) Spearmint & meadowsweet scalp stimulating shampoo
It’s meant to reduce excess sebum production and normalize the scalp while promoting hair growth. According to the JMO’s website, these are the properties of the key ingredients found in the bottle:
The first thing I immediately noticed after opening the bottle was the smell: the strong minty scent. Personally, I find it divine. The shampoo also feels incredibly refreshing and removes build-up from the scalp very well, leaving it squeaky clean. It’s gentler than JMO’s lavender and rosemary shampoo but I find my hair cleaner with this new formula. It’s also a tad more volumizing. I’ll definitely add this shampoo to my hair care routine.
Now shampoo is only the first step, the next one is the serum application.
2) John Masters Organics Deep Scalp Purifying Serum
Believe it or not, it’s my first time using hair serum, so I was quite intrigued by this product.
to soothe and repair damaged scalp, the serum is made of herbal extracts + oils rich in
Vit. B, which plays a significant role in the health of our locks and hair loss prevention.
The serum also has this minty, fresh scent and the properties of the key ingredients are similar to the shampoo:
“spearmint & peppermint – stimulate scalp for optimal hair growth
wintergreen – antibacterial; helps soothe headaches
meadowsweet extract (spiraea ulmaria) – natural astringent; prevents hair loss
vitamin B complex – helps retain moisture; prevents flakiness; slows hair loss”
I apply a few drops (approx. 3-4 drops) with the little pipette to the scalp (which makes me feel like a litte chemist :-), then proceed to massage lightly and evenly. The slight “jelly-like” texture of the serum is quickly absorbed by the skin, without greasing the scalp.
3) Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer for Thinning Hair
This is one of my all-time favorite hair products. I’m currently using up my second bottle. It’s a powerful concoction of organic herbs and essential oils (nettle extract, papaya, gotu kola, irish moss, burdock root, chamomille, white tea, witch hazel, wheat protein, lavender thyme, vit.B complex …to quote a few haha)
It’s basically a leave-in spray that you use on clean, wet hair. Extremely convenient, the spray is very light and doesn’t weigh on the hair.
I’ve been using it for a year, and I’ve been noticing some small hair growth (which is always a plus, isn’t it?)
Again, John Masters Organics doesn’t disappoint! I’m very pleased with my purchase at the moment and I’ll post an update, if the synergy of all these products is effective overtime, so stay tuned 🙂
