Haircare Review: DGJ Organics Hangover Hair Luxury Shampoo & Conditioner

Tuesday 20 November 2012

DGJ Organics Hangover Hair Luxury Shampoo & Conditioner (250ml, £5.99 each, link)*

Last month I tried out the DGJ Organics Glossy Brunettes haircare duo and instantly loved it, so I was looking forward to seeing how their Hangover Hair set compares.  I've been trying out these two products for a couple of weeks now, so here are my thoughts and how I think they compare to the Glossy range.

DGJ Organics Hangover Hair range is for those who have hair in need of some TLC.  It's marketed as an 'intensive detox for dull, tired & stressed hair', which pretty much sums up how my hair feels around this time of year.  My hair doesn't do too well with the cold weather changes/excessive central heating etc, and because it's so prone to frizz, I find myself for the straighteners more often, which leads to it becoming very stressed out!

The Hangover Hair duo is formulated with organic ingredients including wheat protein, coconut derived extracts, amino acids, vitamins, honey and lavender to detoxify and revitalise.  It's suitable for all hair types and contains no harsh chemicals, so they're free from sodium lauryl/laureth sulphates and parabens.

Shampoo:  The shampoo lathered up well and has a strong scent of lavender, with the formula being pretty much the same consistency as most mainstream shampoos (it doesn't feel like you're using a typical SLS free/organic shampoo).  It thoroughly cleaned my hair and didn't irritate my sensitive scalp, plus I didn't feel the need to double shampoo like I sometimes feel with a lot of more natural based shampoos.

Conditioner:  DGJ conditioners seem to be more like intensive treatments and require you to leave them on for around 10-20 minutes after shampooing, so bear this in mind.  When I tried it for only 2-3 minutes, it felt like I hadn't used any conditioner at all, so you really do need to leave it on longer to see the full benefits.  Like the shampoo, it has the same strong lavender scent, but I seemed to notice it less after using the matching shampoo.  After rinsing and drying, my hair felt soft, shiny and bouncy, but it was quite flyaway and frizzy.

Summary:  An budget friendly, organic & SLS free haircare duo to try out if you have hair in need of some TLC, but you also need to like strong lavender scents, and if you have dry hair like me, you may find your hair is a little more frizzy afterwards than usual.  For the latter reason, I'd personally recommend trying out the Glossy range instead.

Have you tried anything from DGJ Organics?

  1. never tried these, and would really like to since theyre organic and have no SLS in them

    1. Let me know what you think if you try them - they're one of the most affordable organic & SLS free haircare brands I've come across :)

    2. Definitely!wow, someone's on a roll here!another post tday haha!way to go,girl!

    3. Hehe thanks! I've got quite a few posts scheduled at the mo! :)

  2. These sound great! Will have to try them. My hair is awful in the winter (well all year round) it hates moisture in the air!


  3. Good post thanks Evelyn. I tried DGJ several months ago and like you, I was pleased with the shampoo bu the conditioner just wasn't up to the job - who has time to leave in a conditioner for 10 minutes or more on a work day?! I've been using the Happy Hair Days thickening shampoo for a while now and am very pleased with it. Does wonders for my fine hair, is free of chemical nasties and is very bargainacious!

    1. I know, I'd rather have that extra 10 mins in bed! Saying that, when I do leave the Glossy conditioner on for that long, I love the results, but it's just too time consuming for everyday. Thanks - I'll have to check out Happy Hair Days, sounds great! x
