What I Say:  I only brought these products from the shop yesterday but I love these two already(!); Samy® Pure Natural Smooth&Shine Shampoo and Conditioner both are a sulfate free and 100% vegan (meaning they use no animal by products).

Despite the fact the products says it's sulfate free neither of the products are paraben-free and the conditioner contains silicones - these ingredients are not as 'natural' as the description states. Although silicones sent alarm bells ringing, after researching the one in this particular product I feel less apprehensive about them (Aminopropyl Dimethicone - prevents buildup but is NOT water soluble, Cyclopentasiloxane - thin silicone that lubricates but is also NOT water soluble) but not totally comfortable with them.

Both the shampoo and conditioner do not have nicest smell especially not the conditioner! However I could ignore the smell for one simply reason my hair felt great! My hair was the softest it's ever been after a shampoo and even softer after the conditioner. One thing though it didn't give me any definition which isn't really a problem for me. My hair kind of puffed out which I've never experienced before and it was cushiony soft, shiny and smooth. My hair was tangle-free and initial scents from the product disappeared... I don't know what else to say about these two products except - I love them :P.

Bottom line:  I know I should knock a point off for the not so 'natural' ingredients and not so nice smell but I love the end result (see photo below) so
