Review: Eco Natural Argan Oil & Shea Butter Eco-Lesterol
A few months ago, I posted about new products from Ecoco, Inc. (view here). I wasn't expecting much from Eco Natural Argan Oil & Shea Butter Eco-Lesterol and thought it'd be similar to other readily available cholesterol treatments. It wasn't up to par though.
Product Claims: Eco-lesterol Ultra Deep Conditioning Organic Hair Treatment is an after shampoo hair treatment that penetrates and smoothes the hair cuticle to make hair stronger, more manageable, shiny and soft. Also Eco-lesterol helps alleviate dry, itchy scalp.
Though the description says "organic," none of the ingredients are marked as such.
Ingredients (Argan Oil & Shea Butter): Water (Aqua), Stearalkonium Chloride, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol and Ceteareth-20, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cholesterol, Fragrance (Parfum), Ricinodendron Rautanenil (Manketti) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Biotin, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Ergocaliferol (Vitamin D), Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), FD&C Yellow 5, D&C Red 4.
Thoughts: Eco-Lesterol is a thick, custard-like deep conditioner. While this does impart some moisture, the aftermath makes it not worth the time. I used Eco-Lesterol about 3 or 4 times, each for 30+ minutes or overnight. I had to use a generous amount to fully cover my hair. Eco-Lesterol does help with the detangling process, but it doesn't have the best/most slip. Did my hair feel stronger? Nope. Shiny and soft? Yes.
I wasn't expecting this product to work miracles or anything. It's an 'okay' product...but, what I really could not stand was that the treatment does not rinse clean. White balls! I would be rinsing for the longest, and it would still be in my hair! I couldn't apply it on un-washed hair as that just made the situation worse. That was my biggest pet peeve with this product. I felt like I was washing my hair to instantly make it dirty all over again.
The fragrance is a light fruity-floral, nothing too strong or lingering. I actually liked it.
I purchased Eco Natural Argan Oil & Shea Butter Eco-Lesterol for £1.69 (8oz). It is also available in a 16oz size, but I'm not sure of the price for that one. The price will vary depending on where you purchase it. Ecoco, Inc. products are available online and in brick-and-mortar beauty supply stores.
Would I repurchase? No. While Eco-Lesterol doesn't work for me, I am still looking forward to seeing what else the Eco Natural line has to offer in the future.
Below is how I'd rate the product in the following categories:
