Today I received a FREE 7.4 ounce bottle of Adovia’s Dead Sea Mud Shampoo. I used it tonight in the shower. It does not look like mud, so do not think you will be putting a mud type mask on your hair. It is a normal type consistency for a shampoo. It is dark brown and very smooth. It smells good, but nothing like the sea or anything. It is more of a flower soapy smell.
Anytime I go into the ocean, my naturally curly hair always gets more curlier. I am contributing that to the salt in the ocean. The ringlets get pretty perfect. I always said I need to bottle up the salt water in the ocean to rinse my hair at home to get my curls like that all the time. Well I was expecting those same results because I read “Dead Sea Mud”, thinking it would be salty. It is not salty. If it wasn’t called Dead Sea Mud Shampoo, I would never know some of the ingredients were from the Ocean.
It made my hair have absolutely no oil to it. There was a feel of extreme clean on my hair, like it stripped away any trace of oil. It was a different and unique feel that I cannot quite explain.
EDIT: June 10th. I’ve used this product for almost a month and I do like it. I do not notice a different look to my hair, but the feel is less oily. If you have oily hair and problems with oily scalp, I bet this will work for you. I have dry curly hair so I have to use a conditioner, (I used the Dead Sea Salt Deep Hair Conditioner – for Dry or Damaged Hair – Great for Natural Curly Hair by Adovia). The combination of both the Shampoo and the Conditioner made my hair silky and oil free. I still have to use a mouse or hair gel to keep my hair from frizzing though. See my review for the Dead Sea Salt Deep Hair Conditioner – for Dry or Damaged Hair – Great for Natural Curly Hair here. I have good ringlets with this routine. Dead Sea Mud Shampoo, Dead Sea Salt Conditioner, hair gel or mousse right out of the shower on very wet hair.
