Samypure Shampoo and Conditioner review

Doing Drugstore: Samypure Smooth & Shine Line

So many companies still use ingredients tested on animals, so it always makes me smile when I discover a new product line that is cruelty-free. I was excited to try the Samypure hair care line, which is 100% Vegan, 100% natural, and promised to gloss and detangle my mane, all for under $5!

My hair tends to need a lot of help, so I am always searching for the magic product that will detangle, volumize, and defrizz, all in one. The shampoo was nice—nothing crazy special, but it smelled good and lathered well. A good conditioner can definitely earn a coveted (and limited!) space in my shower, but unfortunately, this one will not. It just wasn't very moisturizing, and it made my hair feel like I had accidentally skipped conditioner altogether.

The shampoo can stay, but the conditioner is going to a friend of mine whose hair isn't as dry. I love the vegan aspect of the line; I just wish I could say the same about the products themselves.

I was a loyal customer of Samy products for years. I used his original shampoo and conditioner for fine hair, muscle hairspray and mucho moose, I loved the clean scent and everyone complimented me on the perfume I was wearing and little did they know it was the Samy products. Unfortunately he changed the scent with the new Samy pure to a more fruity scent and I discontinued all of his products. Will they ever bring the original scent back? It seems like we can't get clean smelling perfumes anymore, instead they all smell like fruit! I miss his original products. =(

Samypure is one of the BEST vegan haircare products I have ever tried! I recently picked up the Samypure Colorcare Shampoo and Colorcare Conditioner - 2 for $5.00!?! I am HUGE into cruelty free products and when I noticed this shampoo and conditioner in my neighborhood drugstore 'natural product' section, I was thrilled to see it was labeled vegan. Not familar with this brand, but tempted by the price and the veganess of the product, it was a no-brainer to purchase it and give it a try. To sum it up, I have long, straight hair, which is quite dry and tends to be damaged due to coloring. With little hope for miracles for damaged hair, especailly using cruelty-free or vegan conditioners, I have to say I was more than blown away with the results of these two products. After using Samypure Colorcare my hair is shiny, silky and feels wonderful. I would highly reccommend anyone try this product. I would really have to disagree with this article and give this product 5 stars, especially considering it's a cruelty-free product and inexpensive. Overall....a GREAT BUY!!

I tried these years ago and also did not like them. I remember buying them at Target because I thought the packaging looked cute. :nerdgirl:

I used to use Samy's shampoo for fine hair and loved it, but somewhere between bottles they changed both the packaging and the formula and it didn't work for me anymore. I was completely bummed out because it's really hard for me to find a shampoo that doesn't weigh down my hair, and I liked the smell and the way my hair felt after I used it. I now use a product called MOP (Modern Organic Product) for my my fine hair- and because it is organic it makes me feel good about using it :D

I wasn't aware of this part of the line. I generally avoid 'drugstore' haircare, a few lines with exception. I do get rebate items occasionally. They always seem over-stripping or over-moisturizing, as in you get a greasy scalp by evening. I did like Te Tao for a stint and John Frieda (I know, it has bad stuff in it). Bella, have you ever tried Yes to Carrots (Walgreen's)? Or organic lines? I'm curious about some of those. I've used the carrots line, but I alternate my shampoos/conditioners.

I used the Samy curl gel on my hair and it made it feel so rough and coarse. There products aren't very conditioning.
