Pacifica Beauty is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free company that has a full range of cosmetics, perfumes, and skin care. It can sometimes be hard to find vegan and cruelty-free products in main stream stores, but aside from being able to order online, you can find a variety of Pacifica products in many stores near you such as Target, Whole Foods, and Ulta.
I love anything coconut, so when I saw the Coconut Power shampoo and conditioner at Ulta, I snatched it up. My hair can get pretty dry and frizzy, especially in the DC heat and humidity, so I also purchased an anti-frizz serum and moisturizing oil to complete my regimen.
Coconut Power Shampoo and Conditioner
There very first thing I noticed was the smell. It should not have been surprising since the founder’s first interests included the art of scents and making her own fragrances. It is really amazing and lasts long after you shampoo. The coconut aroma is sweet and strong, so if coconut is not for you, you may want to pass on this variety. I did receive quite a few compliments about smelling nice while using the products.
The shampoo is gentle and cleanses well. I cannot attest to which product is responsible, as I used the shampoo and conditioner together, but my hair was super soft both wet and dry. I thought this would pass, since sometimes I notice that after using a product for awhile my hair reverts back to its rough texture, but for the entire month I used it (washing every other day), it remained soft.
Anti-Frizz Serum and Nourishing Oil
The Dragon Tamer Anti-Frizz Serum can be used on wet or dry hair and before or after blow drying. Now, having two small children, my showers occur in the evening after they are FINALLY asleep and usually end with me going to bed with wet hair and almost NEVER ends in blow drying. I either put my hair up in the morning or break out the flat iron, usually the former. With no product, my hair gets pretty frizzy. I tried the Dragon Tamer both on wet hair right out of the shower and on dry hair the next day and found the frizz factor definitely decreased, but didn’t take it away completely. That being said, I have zero expectation that any product would take away all frizz on its own. Now, using the Dragon Tamer in conjunction with the straight iron…perfection. Much better than straightening without any product.
The Native Flower Nourishing Oil is to be used on dry hair and a little goes a long way. The oil definitely was a nice finishing touch making my hair shiny and smooth without weighing it down. A couple of times I used too much on the ends and the result was not pleasant, but that was more due to me not paying attention.
Coconut Power Strong and Long Healing Shampoo – $10 for 8 ounces
Coconut Power Strong and Long Healing Conditioner – $10 for 8 ounces
Dragon Tamer Anti-Frizz Serum – $14 for 1.7 ounces
Native Flower Nourishing Oil – $14 for 1.6 ounces
Overall, I give these products my full approval. I have used them since my first purchase and will continue to use them in the future as part of my rotation. I absolutely adore the smell and love how soft and smooth my hair feels. Have you tried Pacifica hair care products? What did you think? Leave a comment below!
