Product review: Glossy Locks Shampoo and Conditioner

No More Dirty Looks' beauty guru Siobhan O'Connor tests a new coconut-based all-natural shampoo and conditioner. It smells super-sweet, but does it work?

Remember those Dare cookies that you were always bummed to find in the pantry when you were a kid because they had currants in them instead of chocolate chips?

But you might as well have one anyway, you’d reason, because you could lick off that really good white icing that tasted kind of like sugary coconuts?

Anyway, if you do remember those cookies, and you remember how good they smelled, then you’ll have an idea what my hair smells like right now.

Last night, I whipped out the brand-new Glossy Locks shampoo and conditioner—a new line from none other than 100% Pure, whose face sunscreen I love—and stuck it in my friend’s face. “Is this…too much?” I hadn’t tried it yet but the smell was overwhelming in an I-can’t-tell-if-this-is-good-or-bad way. “No way,” he said. “It smells like those cookies.”

I’m fairly sure we were talking about different cookies—he’s a New Yorker and I think those currant cookies are a Canadian thing—but the cookie consensus was in. This shampoo and conditioner smells super sweet.

The even better news? While intensely smelly coconut things are usually artificial mélanges cooked up in a lab in New Jersey, this stuff is completely synthetics free, and it doesn’t linger on your hair and make you smell like a teenager.

But enough about the smell. What’s it like to use? Keep reading to find out…
