Botanic + Terre May/June 2018 Review

Botanic + Terre doesn't provide any information within the box, so I’m using the information given on their website instead.

William Roam Sense Shampoo back of William Roam Sense Shampoo

William Roam Sense Shampoo, 7.6 oz. - Retail Value $21.99

It's nice to get a little break from facial serums and makeup and receive all haircare this time. This shampoo from William Roam's line "Sense" kicks things. off. The bottle is a full size and comes with a pump and nice bamboo accent. It's made with Minnesota Tamarack Larch Tree extract and "is a high performing hair cleaning formula with exceptional natural moisturization for superior hydration". Although this shampoo is for all hair types, I have extremely oily hair because it's so fine and I may not need as much hydration as others. The scent is sort of sweet and almost fruity yet floral. Reading the ingredients I'm thinking it may be the raspberry, plumeria, or garden balsam extract that does it. It's not strong, but light and pleasant. The shampoo seemed to get my hair nice and squeaky clean with minimal product.

William Roam Sense Conditioner back of William Roam Sense Conditioner

William Roam Sense Conditioner, 7.6 oz. - Retail Value $21.99

Of course, they've included the conditioner from the same line to complete the hair ritual and it has the same scent as the shampoo. I try to use an even smaller amount of conditioner since a little goes a long way in my hair. After rinsing, my hair didn't feel as silky as it does with my current shampoo but once dry it's incredibly soft and as shiny as my hair can get. All of this is achieved without any parabens, sulfates, phthalates or synthetic fragrances. While this combo didn't blow my mind, I'll add it to my hair cleansing rotation to use in between my others. It's also good to note that this is made in the USA and will plant one tree with each purchase through their partnership with American Forests.

Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil back of Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil with cap off

Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil, 2 oz. - Retail Value $44.00

Continuing the focus on hair this box, Botanic & Terre has included this bottle of The Hair Oil from Prim Botanicals as well. It's quite lovely and looks like a perfume bottle, but contains an oil that you can use in your hair four different ways:

1. Use as a leave-in mask you shampoo out after at least 30 minutes.

2. Use as a hot oil treatment

3. Use as a heat protectant- a little goes a long way

4. Use as a final grooming aid on dry hair to add shine and seal split ends

I'm gonna be straight with you, I am always terrified of putting anything oil-related in my hair because I have the thinnest, finest hair on this earth. Simply touching it throughout the day leaves my bangs a greasy mess by 6 pm. I also never think to put on a treatment before showering. Even if when I wake up on the weekend, have time, and think "oh, I should put that stuff on my hair for x amount of time and then wash it out" it NEVER happens. I remember after my shower and think "Rats. Next time." and then forget it again. The only one of these treatments that are conducive to my lazy and forgetful ways is as a heat protectant. I am blow drying my hair much less these days but used a little bit in towel-dried hair after my shower to give it a go. After my hair dried, it looked as if I had never washed it. Pure greaze. Ok- so this is not the product for me, which is a bummer. I'll be passing this on to a thicker-haired pal or someone who remembers to prep their hair before washing.

Verdict: Even though I was happy to see hair products, Botanic + Terre was kind of a bust for me this time. The shampoo and conditioner were nice but nothing really special for me, and the hair oil just isn't a good product for my hair and grooming regimen. That being said, the three products totaled $87.98 which is a great value for a $40.99 box.

I used to wash daily and will admit that there’s a transition period but the oiliness is so much better and I can easily wait until day 3 to wash it now. I still shower daily I just use a shower cap. I also do a lot of vivid hair colors and they last longer too.

I have extremely oily hair too. I need a spritz of dry shampoo on the sides of my head by my ears by the end of the day. Also my bangs get very greasy. What Shampoo do you use to manage this? Everything is usually made for moisturizing the hair not helping out the fine haired greasy girls.

Welllllll it’s a whole thing! I used to wash my hair every day until my friends started freaking out and saying that I shouldn’t. But skipping even one day leaves my hair so stringy. I think it’s a chicken or the egg situation “is my hair greasy because I wash it too much or do I wash it so much because it’s too greasy?!”. The only thing I’ve found recently that I am really impressed by is the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt (http://bit.ly/2JhiHhf). I think a sample came in Sephora Play at one point and I became obsessed and HIGHLY recommend trying it. The only problem is that it’s not a daily or even every-other daily product. I only use it once a week as sort of a “reset” but boy do I love my hair on that one day. 😉 In between that I use a random shampoo for fine hair I found at Marshall’s and just try to use the tiniest bit of conditioner to cut down on the extra moisture. Hope this helps!

Have you tried the ACV apple cider vinegar by DpHue? amazing at cutting though the oil, i don’t use a conditioner afterward, hair is a little tangley but cuts way down on the oil.
