I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a WONDERFUL holiday season! I know those of us who have been blessed with the opportunity to take vacation from work are using it to rest up for an awesome year ahead of us!
EXPECT BIG THINGS THIS YEAR!! GOD is working OVERTIME!! Please believe it!
Ok so next up…. the Aubrey Organics (AO) GPB Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner in Rosemary Peppermint! I got the 11 oz ON SALE! at Whole Foods for $7.62. It’s $10.93 on their website which is around the regular price in the stores. I was geeked when I saw the sale price tag! I absolutely LOVE the White Camellia Conditioner and was excited to try another kind from AO! I had seen the GPB conditioner in the store for awhile but nothing ever jumped out at me where I felt I needed to buy it right away. I think because I always did my own protein treatments, like the Cherry Lola, so I didn’t see a need to spend the money on this. BUT then I saw they made it in Peppermint Rosemary!! I was sold! lol yea, it was that easy hahaha. I think my 2nd fav thing next to coconut (in regards to hair) is anything with peppermint! I LOVE peppermint! I just bought some peppermint EO too…
If you can’t stand peppermint, they have two other variations of the GPB Conditioners (and shampoos!): Regular (which is actually their most popular product ever according to their website) and Lavender/Ylang-Ylang.
For more than 40 years our customers have loved Aubrey’s #1-selling GPB Conditioner. Now our signature conditioner is available in an invigorating Rosemary Peppermint scent. This nutrient-rich, protein-based formula rehydrates and re-energizes your hair, while glycoproteins strengthen hair fiber and repair damage from salon treatments to restore softness, manageability and shine.
Milk Protein Rich in cysteine and methionine; strengthens and mends damaged areas. Organic Aloe Replenishes moisture. Glycoprotein & Horsetail Extract Balance & fortify hair & scalp
Aqua, cetyl alcohol (coconut fatty alcohol), alcohol denat. (38b, lavender*), aloe leaf juice*, wheat germ oil, milk protein, glycerin, peppermint oil*, rosemary leaf oil*, brassica campestris/aleurites fordi oil copolymer, grapefruit extract, soybean oil, glycoprotein, sage oil*, vitamin E, witch hazel water, horsetail extract, coltsfoot leaf extract, nettle extract, vitamin C, carrot root extract, beta-carotene. *organic
I think my favorite thing about AO products are their ingredients. They’re ALL natural, some even organic and the best ingredients are listed first meaning, there is a higher content of those ingredients….
Ok, I have a pet peeve, let me *sidebar* for a sec lol….it bothers me when companies advertise something with and ingredient like Argan Oil or Olive Oil but then list it as damn near the LAST ingredient. There’s probably one drop of olive oil in that thing! (Eco-Styler is notorious for this but I do love their gels and use them to this day lol I have the argan oil Eco-Styler but I definitely do NOT use it for the argan oil #JustSaying)
Any who, my point is, is that AO products have a higher content of the wholesome, goodness of amazing ingredients like the coconut, aloe, oils, proteins, etc. They aren’t the little things they add on at the end of the ingredients just so they can market their product a certain way.***steps down off soap box***
I knew my hair was in need for a protein boost after my banana hair mask the week before and I was so excited to try this out. I washed with Dr. Bronner’s Hemp Tea Tree Oil 18-in-1 Castile Soap (review on this coming soon!) and applied the conditioner to my roots and length of my hair. It said focus on the ends but I made sure I rubbed some on my scalp so I could get the peppermint tinglys hehe. I used my Hair Therapy Warp Thermal Turban and left it on for about 45 mins and rinsed out.
This conditioner has the signature peppermint scent that I love, it doesn’t have as much slip as the White Camellia version I also have but that’s ok. It still applied somewhat well. I did feel like I needed to put a little bit more on the really cover all of my hair and scalp. But since I would only use this 1-2x a month, it should last me a few months. This isn’t one of those every day conditioners (to me), I use it more of a treatment.
I got awweesome results! My hair is sooooo soft, springy, manageable, fortified, strong, etc. etc. etc. I love it! Love love love it! Aubrey Organics has some amazing products, definitely put them on your “To Try” list :o)
— P.S. I know I haven’t posted many pics of my hair but I feel like when I post pics of it’s wet (after conditioners), they all the look the same lol so it seems kinda useless…. wish pictures could let you see what it feels like haha. But I will be sure to post pics when I use a styling products!
