Phillip Adam ACV Shampoo & Conditioner

14 Aug

Hi beauties!

I’m always on the hunt for natural-based beauty, so I was happy to try out a few hair care products from Phillip Adam.

About Phillip Adam

Before starting his own line of natural products, Phillip Adam worked as a hairdresser for nearly 50 years. A desire to work with clean, high‑performing products led Phillip to create a line of hair care products made of all‑natural based botanical ingredients, including Apple Cider Vinegar.

Phillip Adam Inc. is a family-run company based in Vancouver. Their hair and body products are biodegradable, vegan, paraben free, cruelty free, gluten free, and gmo free.

Phillip Adam ACV Shampoo

I’ve read about the benefits of using apple cider vinegar from healing a sunburn to clearing up skin, so I was curious as to how it worked in hair care.

This all-natural shampoo, which is Phillip Adam’s No.1 selling product, balances the ph level of your scalp, keeping it healthy. You want to make sure your scalp is clean and balanced, as product buildup makes it difficult for new hair to push through for hair growth.

Along with its refreshing green apple scent (which I’ve found to be addicting), the shampoo has just the right amount of lather to make my hair feel clean and look shiny. Whether you have highlights or color-treated hair or you want your kids to use this shampoo, it’s safe for all hair types and  ages.

If you prefer to wash your hair every day (especially when it’s hot), it’s also safe for daily use!

Phillip Adam ACV Conditioner

This Apple Cider Vinegar conditioner works hand in hand with the shampoo by controlling static electricity, maintaining ph balance, and gently detangling hair. Since it detangles, you can skip a detangling spray.

I found the consistency of the conditioner complemented the shampoo: it’s not overly thick but added enough moisture.

Tips from Phillip Adam

• Apple Cider Vinegar, which is the primary cleansing agent in the shampoo, dissolves oil and rinses out quickly. You don’t have to rinse and rinse to remove the shampoo, so you can save water (and the environment) and time!

• With its gentle. non-irritating formula and quick rinsing ability, you can save even more water/time by using the shampoo as a body wash.
