Original Mineral Hydrate & Conquer Shampoo and Conditioner + Power Base

O &M  Hydrate & Conquer Shampoo and Conditioner + Power Base

The Original & Mineral Hydrate & Conquer range has been formulated for dry, damaged hair- that’s me!  O & M says that it uses nutrient-rich Tasmanian Sea Kelp, containing Vitamins A, B, C, & E and 13 amino acids to strengthen hair and stimulate growth. Sweet almond and macadamia oil is included for their moisturising properties, and the conditioner also has built in UV  protection to protect coloured and natural hair.

This range is a bit of a cult hit amongst bloggers, and I can see why. The packaging is gorgeous, the brand philosophy is great (their aim is to formulate without harsh chemicals including sulphates), and the product is luxurious to use. If you love gourmand scents in your bath and beauty products then you need to try these.

The Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner  ($29.95) is unbelievably good. In several minutes it seems to just as good a job of hydrating and softening my hair as a good hair treatment or masque – it even comes close to my favourite hair treatment, the rather exxy Kerastase Nutri-Thermique Intensive Nurition Masque ($50- $90 a jar). I also love that it doesn’t weigh the hair down- AND, that it smells like vanilla cake batter. Definitely a repurchase for me.

I was excited about trying the Hydrate and Conquer shampoo because I’m always on the lookout for sulphate free shampoos and cleansers, and because so many people I’ve spoken to love it. Unfortunately for me, The Hydrate & Conquer Shampoo ($29.95) doesn’t get on well with my my scalp. I’m not sure which ingredient/combination of ingredients I’m reacting to, but I get a very itchy scalp after I use this for a few days. When I switch back to my regular Moogoo Milk Shampoo, the itchiness goes away. As far as I know, my partner and I are the only people that have had this issue (I’ve consulted the twitterverse and everyone else does very well with this formulation).

Power Base  ($31.95) is a decent strengthening treatment for damaged hair formulated with wheat proteins and apricot kernel oil. I didn’t notice any change after my first or second use, but after persisting I’ve noticed less breakages, frizziness and other assorted bad behaviour from my hair. It doesn’t seem to add any softness or silkiness on my hair-I find I still need a conditioner for that- this strengthens the hair.  I use it once a week.
