Product Review: LiQWD Hydrating Shampoo

I got the opportunity to test drive a shampoo from a brand that you may or may not have heard from.  It's a luxe brand of hair products that you can get from select salons and online.

Hit the jump to see how my experience with LiQWD was.

When it comes to shampoos, I can be rather picky. Although I prefer to use lightly scented clear shampoos that have clear consistencies, I don't mind trying products outside of my comfort zone. LiQWD's Hydrating Shampoo promises to not only maintain color deposits through the hair (thanks to the L-Tyrosine) but it also contains apple extract that helps to soothe and soften the hair. I've tried a ton of shampoos and have never had apple extract in any of them. Pretty groovy, uh?

Ingredients-wise, I could have done without the sulfates. Mainly because I find that they make my hair a little on the stiff side. Occasional use of products with sulfates in them don't bother me but I try not to make a habit out of it. Since this shampoo seemed to be so geared towards strengthening color-treated hair, I didn't mind giving it a chance.

It's a super thick shampoo so a little bit goes a looooong way.

Which, I like. I have to wash my hair three times. It takes a lot of shampoo to do the job so I liked that this one lathered well and rinsed clean.

Results? It left the hair super clean! I didn't get that super strip-y feeling I get when I use some shampoos so that's a good sign. I wasn't big on the fragrance but I think that's because my nose just really appreciates woodsy/earthy fragrances over 'traditional shampoo' smells.

Still. It's a shampoo that I'd recommend to a loc rocker. It's a bit on the pricey side retailing at $28 for a 350ml bottle but some of us don't mind investing pennies on our crowns.

Have y'all heard of or tried LiQWD?
