Product Review: Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo
I was really excited to try Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo after reading about it. I tend to buy shampoos that are organic or contain a lot of herbs or other natural ingredients but sometimes the shampoos don't live up to my expectations. That was not the case with Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo. Now you might be wondering why anyone would want to wash their hair with dead sea mud to start with. Dead sea mud has been used for centuries for it's healing properties. It contains the highest concentration of minerals found in mud anywhere in the world and these minerals are essential for proper skin function. They also help to regulate moisture retention as well as hydration. In fact, people travel from all over the world to experience the effects of the mud at the Dead Sea.
The shampoo claimed to give fast, natural relief from itchy, dry, flaky scalp, scalp psoriasis, seborrhea dermatitis and dandruff. I have an itchy, dry, flaky scalp and some shampoos really irritate my scalp. At the time I tried it I wasn't really thinking about the possibility that it would stop my scalp from itching all the time but it did. Since the first use I have not had any itchiness on my scalp. That is a real plus!
The shampoo has a very pleasant smell that is not overly strong. Some of the ingredients listed include dead sea mud, dead sea water, chamomile, algae extract, papaya extract, dead sea salt, aloe vera gel, wheat germ oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, carrot seed oil, olive oil and shea butter. It's no wonder it made my hair so soft and shiny. In fact, I didn't even have to deal with tangles when I combed my wet hair. That says a lot. Even after my hair was dry it remained tangle-free.
I have wavy hair and some shampoos weigh my hair down so badly that it looks straight. I am happy to say that Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo did not do this. The waves clearly show even after my hair is dry. I do not feel the use of a conditioner is necessary with this shampoo but I typically do not use conditioner anyway. For those who prefer using a conditioner Adovia Mineral Balsam Conditioner is recommended.
I highly recommend that you give this product a try especially if you have been less than satisfied with the other shampoos you have used. To give you an idea of how long a bottle might last, I use about a quarter size puddle of this shampoo each time I wash my hair and my hair is below my shoulders. I get a good, rich lather from this amount of shampoo. I do not have to wash my hair twice either - but I do wash it everyday. Not because I feel this shampoo requires that but because that is just what I do living on a farm. My hair gets lots of dirt and debris in it on a daily basis. Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo removed all of that with no problem and left my hair squeaky clean.
Dead Sea Salts and Mud have been featured on CNN, in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo is available on Amazon.com or through their website Cleopatra's Choice.
