Superfruit Coconut Cleansing Conditioner

I don’t know about you, but I’m a pretty impatient type. When I go to the gym, I don’t want to shlep a large number of bottles with me. Of course, some fancy types have their own kit locker at the gym so they can keep as many bottles there as they like, but I’m not in that league just yet. So when it came to choosing which shampoo to stick into my gym bag, it wasn’t hard to decide.

I’ve tried a couple of different VuDu Hair shampoos and conditioners from BlackBox. I haven’t met one yet that I didn’t like. One of my favourite things about BlackBox Cosmetics is their honesty – they don’t make different shampoos for different kinds of hair. They don’t have one conditioner for frizzy and another for volume and yet a third for coloured or damaged. They have different oils in them and different smells, but as far as I can tell, it’s really a matter of personal preference which one you use. I should add that I have coloured hair so I need to make sure it is well-moisturised, and every single BlackBox conditioner I have tried works just fine for me.

So what is the deal with the Superfruit-Coconut stuff? It’s a two-in-one, that’s what. Wet hair, put a tiny amount (it’s all based on aloe, remember?) in your hand, lather up your hair, wait a couple of minutes (that’s a good time to do the body work), rinse out, done. No repeating, no extra bottles. Done.
