A review by Jessica M
When I noticed a few items from Uncle Harry’s Natural Products on the bottom shelf of a local natural-beauty boutique, I had to purchase something just because their labels looked so wonderfully old-timey. I thought the Aromatherapy Hair Conditioner sounded particularly good, so I bought it untested. Fortunately, it has been working well on my hair, and I still smile whenever I see the bottle standing in my medicine cabinet.
Uncle Harry’s makes “traditional body care products and remedies with absolutely no toxic ingredients,” and the ingredients list for this product is short and sweet: water, orange oil, lemon oil, hemp oil, and apple cider vinegar. The hemp oil is moisturizing and the vinegar acts as a clarifying agent. The orange and lemon oils give the product an incredibly realistic smell of just-squeezed fruit juice. This product is an excellent choice for anyone who has been seeking a leave-in conditioner that doesn’t weigh down the hair, and it’s a green alternative to silicone-laden mainstream conditioners. It could also be used between shampoos, to freshen the hair and scalp.
I don’t know much more about Uncle Harry’s Natural Products, except that the company is based in Redmond, Washington and it offers merchandise ranging from old-fashioned tooth powders to ayurvedic face creams, natural deodorants, and essential oil blends. Is Uncle Harry a kindred spirit to the famous Dr. Bronner? Now that the Hair Conditioner’s citrus scent has cleared my head (and softened my hair), maybe I’ll do some more research into this brand!
A 4-oz. bottle of Uncle Harry’s Aromatherapy Hair Conditioner Spray sells for $8 at http://www.uncleharrys.com/ .
