Dr Organic Haircare

In my ongoing battle against eczema, I seem to try out endless SLS-free products in hopes of finding The One; this is made more difficult by the fact that I have one of the oiliest scalps known to man, whilst SLS-free shampoos tend to be aimed at dry delicate scalps. If anyone knows of a good SLS-free shampoo for oily scalps which isn't too extortionate, I'd love to hear about it!

Anyway. My most recent hair buys were from Dr Organic; I picked up two shampoos, the Aloe Vera and the Tea Tree, and two conditioners - Vitamin E and Manuka Honey. I've been using these for a few weeks now (I've got the Tea Tree Shampoo and Manuka Honey Conditioner in my gym bag, and the Aloe Vera Shampoo and Vitamin E Conditioner in my shower at home!) and have been pretty pleased with them...
Dr Organic Haircare
The Aloe Vera Shampoo (£5.79/200ml) has a pleasant light, citrussy scent and lathers up reasonably well. I always shampoo twice and find that this leaves my hair feeling soft and clean. I expected the Tea Tree Shampoo (£5.79/200ml) to smell of, well, Tea Tree, but in fact it has a much more subtle scent - again, it's quite citrussy, with only a hint of tea tree if you're really looking for it. I find this works really nicely to leave my scalp and hair feeling clean but not stripped, and it's definitely the better of the two in terms of working well with my oily scalp.
The Vitamin E Conditioner (£5.79/200ml) has a really light, typical "haircare" kind of fragrance with, again, a hint of citrus; the formula spreads easily through the lengths and ends of my hair, and works pretty well to smooth and soften them. And finally, the Manuka Honey Conditioner (£5.59/200ml) smells very strongly of honey in an almost sickly/artificial way; I'm not 100% keen on it and would prefer a more subtle fragrance for this one. That said, it does work well to condition my hair, leaving the lengths and ends feeling smooth and well-hydrated, even after swimming.
Dr Organic Shampoo & Conditioner
All four of these are decent product and well worth the price-point in my opinion, I just wish the Manuka Honey Conditioner didn't smell quite so strongly! Dr Organic products are currently Buy One, Get One Half Price at Holland & Barrett, so now would be a good time to buy if you like the sound of any of these! What are your favourite haircare products? Are you a fan of strongly-scented haircare, or do you prefer a more subtle fragrance?

  1. I love their products! I hate strongly scented haircare or skincare or makeup for that matter but especially haircare as it irritates my delicate scalp.

  5. These sound like some great products. I can highly recommend moisturising from within for dry skin problems - cod liver oil or Udo's Oil, something with a good blend of Omega 3, 6 and 9. Works wonders! :)

  6. I struggle with eczema as well so I definitely want to use some more organic/natural products. These sound lovely, especially the tea tree!!

  7. As someone who suffers from severe eczema, I'm always on the lookout for organic products as anything unnatural flares me up.
    I've seen Dr Organic in Holland and Barrett before, and keep meaning to try it as I notice they have no parabens (which I'm allergic to and seems to be in EVERYTHING!) totally nasty free in other senses too. Good to read a review of what it's like, and I definitely need to try it soon!

  8. I saw these in the store the last day and was thinking about picking one up. But I didn't. After reading this I might give it a go.

  10. I didn't know that they did haircare stuff, I really don't pay enough attention. It's a shame that some of them have an overpowering smell x

  11. I never look to Holland and Barrett for products like haircare, and do love honey so will take a look.
