New In: John Masters Organics: Scalp treatment set

 

left to right:  2) 1) and 3)
I attach a lot of importance over the hair products I use. I have fine and oily hair, which is not the best combination, so I’m always on the lookout for products that will give me some volume, while cleaning my scalp properly.

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
eucalyptus oil.
– 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)



Impressions:
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:

     “spearmint & peppermint – stimulate scalp for optimal hair growth,
       meadowsweet extract (spiraea ulmaria) – natural astringent; prevents hair loss
      eucalyptus oil – removes bacteria; anti-inflammatory
      zinc – reduces irritation and protects the scalp
     soy protein – strengthens hair follicle”
     guar gum – natural thickening agent; builds volume; locks in moisture and increases  shine”

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.
Meant
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 🙂
What about you my lovely readers; are you familiar with John Masters Organics? Do you have a favourite shampoo for fine hair?

Take care,
Liz

    1. I feel you, good hair products are really hard to find! John Masters Organics products are high-quality. You can also easily find samples if you are hesitant. 🙂 x Liz

  1. Thanks for interesting review, Liz! I was recently given a sample of the above mentioned shampoo. It was a real change to my usual product (joico), also because I was advised to mix it with water and to apply it to my dry scalp/ hair… I will probably gonna buy it, but I was wondering if it worked out for you and if you think it helps hair to grow or at least decreases the loosening of hair?

    Also, this might be interesting for you, my hair dresser told me to use a hair brush made of boar bristles (first cut). It helps to free your scalp from grease and is good for blood circulation… I have not tried it yet, but I surely will!

    1. My pleasure, thank you for commenting Tamara 🙂 I alternate between JM Organics and Rahua voluminous shampoo. Rahua is more "rich" and a more intensive treatment. I really like JM Organics it because it's gentle and I didn't notice any hair loss while using it. In terms of hair growth, I can say for sure that it revitalizes the hair, hair feels more strong. But what really did a major difference in my hair vitality was the use of hair oils, I use Badger's Antioxydant Hair oil with Seabuckthorn, Pomegranate and Apricot. And of course the reduction of my stress level.
      Oh and yes this type of hair brush is great, I have one and I also have a wooden wide teeth comb, which is nice against hair breakage.
      I hope I could answer your question 🙂 If you need more infos, please feel free to email me! xx

    2. Hi Liz, thank you very much for your recommendations. Unfortunately I cannot get hold of the hair oils you recommended since I live in Germany. But I am very happy indeed with the JM Organics shampoo. My hairdresser also recommended Dr. Hauschka Neem hair lotion. Well, I see if it changes my hair condition.
      Of course it's difficult to say whether these products are really helping hair growth/ hair loss, but especially JM Organics changes the appearances of the hair, which is an effect after all 😉

    3. Hi Tamara, I'm so happy you like JM shampoo! I heard great things about Dr. Hauscka's Neem oil. Let me know how it works for you 🙂 I got Badger products on Ecco-Verde, back in September. (maybe they will have it back in stock soon) There's also the brand Khadi, which has some great hair masks and oils as well.( khadi.de & also available on Eccoverde) Looking forward to hearing from you. xx

  2. Hi,
    I was hoping this set would decrease the oil in my roots so my roots aren't greasy by the end of the day. Have you noticed any difference in oil production?

    Thanks,
    Brittany

    1. Hi Brittany! Regarding the oil production, I can't say for sure : I wash my hair 2-3/week and I'm also doing oil treatments. Both have played a big role on decreasing the oiliness. But I'm not sure this set would do that. This set helps keeping a healthy scalp (by that I mean strenghtening the hair) I hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any questions 🙂 xx
