Hi there 🙂
When I decided to go CF I went to google (didn’t we all??). Through “google-research” I found the Leaping Bunny shopping guide and went straight to the hair care section. I was running out of my current hair care supplies and I thought this would be a great time to start purchasing a new brand. I was using head & shoulders (my over dyed and processed hair needed something strong enough to clean it without stripping it of all it’s oils). I had seen the YesTo Carrots brand before, in my local Target, and when I saw that it was on the CF list I jumped on it.(It does help that the whole site was on discount! lol) I was going to do a mini haul and describe all of the items I bought from there but I decided to break it up instead. I wanted to give each item its own post! They really deserve it!
So after that long intro… Let’s get on with the review!
First, in case you have never seen YesTo products (you really are missing out!) Here are a couple pictures:
Please excuse the glare! The sun wanted to be extra shiny while I was taking pictures! Also, it doesn’t have a Bunny Logo (some of their products do, and some don’t) and that might scare some people but don’t worry! All of their products are CF and if you click the product link below you will see that the website says it is CF too! 🙂 Yay!
Like every other product, this shampoo and conditioner combo has some claims that I really wanted to be true. After I used it for quite some time and finished my conditioner bottle (It’s always the first to go!) I figured it would be a good time to reflect on the claims and see how accurate they truly are!
Product: YesTo Blueberries Healthy Hair Repair Shampoo & Conditioner $15.99 on the YesTo Website
CLAIM ON BOTTLE YES/NO/SORTA & MY ACTUAL OPINION
- Restores fullness & shine = This is SORTA true… My hair did not feel limp or weighed down by this product at all so my natural fullness remained (I’m not sure if it would restore it or not… mine never went away). I have quite thick/full/frizzy/damaged hair due to genetics and years of hot tools, dying, and the hot Florida sun! I didn’t notice much extra shine added but I’ve never had much shine to begin with. This seems to be a case of you can’t restore what was never there I guess.
- Healthier-Looking Hair in 7 days = YES this is true! I noticed that my hair felt less frizzy, more nourished, and not greasy after application. I would say this claim is 100% true for me and my hair type! My hair feels so clean but not stripped of all the moisture it so desperately needed. I love that!
- Reduced breakage = I can’t really answer this one…I, thankfully, don’t have much of an issue when it came to breakage but it did reduce my frizz problem! Since I don’t have extreme breakage issues I do not know if it really did what it claims!
Overall, I love this product and it does exactly what I need a shampoo & conditioner to do for my hair! It’s not too expensive and the smell is great (not too strong but leaves a subtle smell of natural goodness!) It does not have any harsh chemicals that will further damage your lovely locks or the environment. It does what it says it will and I will be repurchasing this product. I also like the packaging. It is easy to dispense and looks cute (that is always a plus in my book!)
Cruelty-Free Confidence says yes to the YesTo brand!
