Product updates: Design Essentials and SisterLocks
The Design Essentials Organic Cleanse Deep Cleansing Shampoo with Oatmeal Protein has been discontinued. It has been replaced with Design Essentials Oat Protein and Henna Deep Cleansing Shampoo. Based on the ingredients, there is more propylene glycol in the newer version of the shampoo and less of what I thought was the good stuff. Our hair industry is really going backwards. Manufacturers are going to continue to cut cost which may mean cheaper ingredients being used in their products.
On the flip side, Sisterlocks(tm) has been tweaking their "Starter Shampoo" for awhile trying to get the best product consistency. The bottle on the right is the newest packaging of the Sisterlocks Starter Shampoo. There is nothing in the ingredients list that screams that they are sacraficing quality. So I really think Sisterlocks has improved the shampoo. This starter shampoo is designed to clarify and rough up the cuticle to aid with hair locking. I do sell Sisterlocks products within my salon.
