One of the best things about having the Beyond Black Beauty creator and editor as your best friend is getting to try new products, but now I have to work for it. This time, I was super excited to try Andre Walker Hair’s keratin enriched shampoo, conditioner and Quench-Essential Oil by Emmy award-winning hair stylist Andre Walker. Andre has been the personal hair stylist to Oprah Winfrey for more than 25 years and has also styled the likes of Halle Berry and first lady Michelle Obama.
“Keratin Shampoo is formulated to build strong, healthy hair. It is the perfect blend of the highest quality natural ingredients, such as Whole Leaf Aloe Vera and Green Tea Extract, and the best of modern science Keratin.”
Please note: Keratin Shampoo is a unique shampoo experience and designed to be used in tandem with the Keratin Conditioner. You will have less lather with even deeper cleansing, which is a part of our custom formulation. The texture of your hair after shampoo is going to feel different, because the hair is now clean and ready for the moisturizing benefits of our keratin conditioner, a deep penetrating protein treatment.
Now, I used the shampoo, conditioner and Quench-Essential Oil before I read the “please note” section and the lack of lather was one of my major concerns, I felt like I had to use extra shampoo to get a working lather. I also wasn’t fond of the conditioner, I have natural hair and I had to add my regular conditioner to comb out the tangles. With that said I really liked the Quench-Essential Oil, it added a nice shine without leaving my hair feeling oily. The shampoo and conditioner also left a really nice after smell that lasted for almost a week.
Both shampoo and conditioner retail for $23. The Quench-Essential Oil retails for $35.
