Jungle Botanics Review


Today I wanted to review a shampoo and treatment set that I received from Wishtrend. Jungle Botanics is a new brand for Wishtrend and I was very excited to have the opportunity to test out this shampoo and treatment. Jungle Botanics philosophy is to combine advanced scientific technology with ingredients from nature. The brand mission is to "replenish natural energy and return balance to your hair by using revitalizing elements found in nature".  I have been testing this hair duo for about 6 weeks and want to share my thoughts with you all.


The Claim:

Shampoo - deeply cleanses the scalp without oils or silicones that weight hair down, giving the hair volume. This hypo-allergenic shampoo soothes the scalp with menthol capsules, making your scalp feel instantly cool. This is good for those with a sensitive or heat irritated scalp. The formula is slightly acidic so it's safe to use on permed or color treated hair. This is also phthalate free and is made with natural ingredients and plant extracts.

Treatment - this is in a deep conditioning treatment just like a conditioner that helps to smooth and hydrate the hair. This has a warming effect meant for opening the hair cuticle so that the nutrients can be fully absorb into the hair strains.




Packaging:
The shampoo comes in a plastic pump top container with 200ml of product. The treatment aka conditioner comes in a plastic squeeze tube container and contains 250ml of product. Both are made in Korea.


Patch Testing:
Because these products are for my hair, I do not patch test these types of products. I will say that I am very careful about how I use shampoos and conditioners in the shower. I always keep it away from my facial skin as much as possible. I also wash and condition my hair before I wash my face, that way if I did happen to get any hair products on my face, it will get washed away by my facial cleanser.


Formula:
The shampoo is a greenish clear gel consistency with tiny green beads filled with menthyl to help instantly cool your scalp. This does feel very cooling and refreshing. The shampoo focuses on effectively cleansing the hair but designed to balance the scalp. This is silicone free and phthalate free.

The treatment is a white cream that coats the hair to deliver nutrients deep into the hair follicles. This has a warming effect to help open the hair cuticle so that the ingredients can penetrate more deeply. This contains pracaxi seed oil (an oil derived that contains a high concentration of fatty acids), Brazil nut see oil, avocado and argan oils and green tea. These ingredients are included to help correct hair damage.

Results:
The shampoo has a medicinal menthol scent that is refreshing. This doesn't lather up like a typical sulfate shampoo but does effectively cleanse the hair. After rinsing, I noticed my hair felt somewhat dry, an almost "straw" like feeling . This certainly cools the scalp and makes it tingle which I find soothing to my often dry and tight scalp. The shampoo is not very concentrated and takes several pumps to throughly wash my hair. The Treatment is very concentrated, hydrating conditioner that does warm up but nothing drastic like the claims. This does hydrate very well and left my hair extremely soft. The treatment has a minty, herbal/medicinal scent. 


Overall:
I will admit that at first I did not like these products very much but after using almost half of the bottles, I have changed my mind slightly. What I do like is that the shampoo cools my scalps but the dry, straw like feeling is something I do not care for. My scalp and hair are normally on the dry side so I like a hydrating shampoos. The Treatment is the one I like the most as it really does hydrate my hair. I love that the treatment is so concentrated so a tube of this would last forever. 

The biggest thing I noticed after using these two product together is that my hair was more balanced and my scalp was visibly less oily, tight and irritated. I do not wash my hair often, maybe 2 to 3 times a week. Because of the lack of washing, I would normally have to use a dry shampoo on my scalp by day 2. After using the Jungle Botanics products, I did not need to use a dry shampoo because my scalp was less oily and my hair was still very bouncy. I was honestly so surprised on how well these work on my hair and having a more balanced scalp has had other positive affects. First, my hair has grown much more rapidly and secondly, I do not seem to be losing/shedding as much hair. 

One negative that might turn some away is the scent of these products. The scent does linger so those that are sensitive to fragrance would probably not like these because they doesn't seem to dissipate until day 3 of no washing. Personally, I do not mind the scents of both of these products. Also, having my hair still smell good after 3 days without washing is a huge plus for me. Another con is that the shampoo is not very concentrated however, the results make it worth using a bit more product. I am very glad I gave these more time to test out because after the first few uses I wouldn't have recommended these. After using half of the bottles I am now confident that I would repurchase both and would recommend these to you all. 



Stay Beautiful ❤️
