Innersense Organic Hair Care Review
If you are in the market for a safer, truly good-for-your-hair, non-toxic, hydrating hair care routine, today’s post has got you covered. When I first started my quest for cleaner beauty, I found myself grabbing just about anything that had the words organic on it, later to learn that even though an item may be organic, it can still contain damaging ingredients. This seemed to be the case with the shampoos I was using, as they ended up being not as great as I had hoped when examined further. While the ingredients were not toxic or carcinogenic, they simply were not the best things to put on my hair, most being just temporary fixes to ensure shiny hair fast.
While many organic shampoos contain “All Natural” ingredients, most of those ingredients are extracted through a chemical process, which changes them from their original and natural composition.When used, these ingredients leave a fine film on the hair, leaving it feeling smooth, silky and clean, which sounds ideal, but it’s not, why not you say?
Well, because we’ve become so accustomed to using conventional shampoos that have synthetic or processed fillers in them, leaving us with that smooth and silky feeling after shampooing, people now think that feeling is what “clean” hair feels like. It’s actually not clean though because that silky smooth feeling is coming from the remaining film left behind from those ingredients, versus your hair’s actual condition. Clean hair should have texture to it, makes sense right?
Now that I had to toss out yet another batch of what I thought to be clean products, I had to start all over, however, the company Innersense made this easy on me as they offer an entire hair care line designed to bring out the absolute best in your hair. That means no high heat processing, no synthetics, no fillers, no nonsense, just clean, awesome Organic hair care products that actually work wonders on your hair’s long term health.
Before I go into my review of their products, I would like to feature my favorite selling points of the Innersense Line:

Now that you can see how amazing their stance on the beauty industry is, let’s chat about some of my favorite items!
Innersense Color Awakening Shampoo & Conditioner-
I do not wash my hair every day, but when I do, this is the duo I am currently using, and have been using for the past 2 months. This Color Awakening Shampoo is a gentle cleansing shampoo for color treated hair, hand crafted from the Certified Organic and Bio-Dynamic ingredients of coconut and palm oils, pumpkin seed, and shea butter, to provide a luxurious cleansing. The Sunflower Seed extracts, a natural anti-oxidant, protects your color from fading, all while adding a glorious shine.
The Color Radiance Conditioner also revitalizes and nourishes color treated hair by using natural proteins, aromatic oils, and flower essences. This lightweight and build up free formula moisturizes and strengthens the hair while providing even more resilience and shine.
How to Use-
To use these products, simply shampoo as you normally would, inhaling the aromatic scents of coconut and palm oils, orange flower oil, pumpkin seed oil, shea butter and sunflower seed oil. The shampoo really lathers well, despite it’s clean ingredients and the smell really is very fresh and pleasing. I did find that my hair was a little greasy after a few washes, so on greasier days I will shampoo twice.
The conditioner hydrates really well so I use this on my ends only to ensure I do not weigh my hair down. I suggest only conditioning on the dry parts of your hair to start.
Sweet Spirit Leave in Conditioner-
This leave in conditioner really is one of my favorite products by Innersense as it really just does its job flawlessly! Whenever I use this item, my hair brushes out easily and is much easier to manage. With magical ingredients like honey, lavender, rooibos, rosemary and tamanu oil, this Sweet Spirit Leave in conditioner really is the best leave-in conditioner I have found to date.
I Create Volume-
This I Create Lift was designed to add texture, boost volume, define curls, shape and sculpt wet or dry hair, this Aloe Vera and Honey-infused foam is already my new favorite way to add fullness and manageability to my hair each day.
I Create Finish-
Finding a safe, clean hair spray has been tough, but again, Innersense has come to the rescue by creating this I Create Finish product. This hair spray is made with Certified Organic Honey, which acts as a natural resin while Organic Rooibos Tea supplies a much needed anti-oxidant protection. Aloe and Rice Proteins then offer extra moisture and strength and the Certified Organic Lavender will soothe the senses.
This product really does hold up well, but because it’s non-aerosol, I find that it works best on ponytails or first sprayed on hands and then applying to the areas you want to tame. The spray may be a bit too powerful and heavy for a full on squirt into a head of fresh curls unless you spritz from at least 10 inches away and let it gently fall into your hair. I personally prefer spritzing this into my hands first and then applying where it’s needed.
Harmonium Healing Oil-
This was one of the first products I was able to try from this line, and to this day, still one of my all-time favorites! Not only does this Harmonic Healing Oil work wonders on the ends of dry, damaged hair, the real magic happens when this is applied directly to your dry, irritated scalp! I have seen a huge improvement in my scalp’s condition when I use this regularly, so for anyone with any scalp issues, I strongly suggest you give this a try.
Harmonic Healing Oil is made from Certified Organic Safflower and Evening Primrose Oils, combined with the healing properties of sacred Tamanu Oil. This luscious oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants, with added anti-inflammatory properties that soothe dry or irritated skin just about anywhere.
So, as you can see Innersense has an amazing line up of products and is most definitely a line I feel confident in suggesting you all try out.
