I absolutely loved the scent on this shampoo when I first opened the bottle.! The first thing I did when I got my box was open it to smell it and it’s as good as everyone claims! It smells like coconuts and berries.
The thing I AM absolutely loving, though, is what is NOT in it: parabens, sulphates, chemicals, or animal tears (it wasn’t tested on animals). I hate using toxic stuff that can absorb into my skin or contaminate water sources anyway, but actually this last weekend I was getting my hair cut and the hair dresser told me that particularly for curly hair, the sulphates can have a chemical reaction with hair (curly hair tends to be more porous, so that’s why more so with curly than straight hair) and make it frizz. So using a sulphate free shampoo is not only good for your health and the environment, but it’s also good for your hair!
Although not a huge bottle, I do think there is really good value for money with Hairgurt. You don’t need to use a lot and for comparable products, it’s really not expensive.
One thing I’m a bit meh about is the idea of prebiotics. I’m not really sure what the point of that is. Although our entire body has its own microbiome, I’m unclear what the point of the prebiotcs is and how it’s even slightly beneficial….particularly in the hair. It almost seems as though the company tried to use all the buzzwords in healthy living and applied them to the shampoo.
Overall, I think it’s a great shampoo that healthy for you and the environment, it does its job (cleans your hair!), and makes your hair look great! Highly recommended

The packaging on this product is SO cute. It looks like yogurt in a yogurt container but on the side of the container it warns you “do not eat”. It is quite tempting. It looks so creamy and smells lovely too.
The actual product itself also looks like a thick yogurt texture. The scent is quite light and not overbearing, which I like. The hairgurt goes on smoothly and my hair does feel much softer after having used it. I still do need to use product on my hair since it does tend to frizz up when I air dry it. I don’t think it’s a one-stop solution to frizzless hair, but it’s a good quality hair masque with a great scent. I didn’t feel like it left a lot of residue and my hair wasn’t sticky like with some other masks.
I also appreciate that the mask is free from a lot of chemicals and sulfates. I feel better knowing it’s a more natural, moisturizing product. It is rather on the expensive side, but it does come with two separate containers so you the freshness lasts longer than if you got one big tub. Overall, I like this product.
Hairgurt Smoothing Deep Conditioning Yogurt Hair Mask for Frizzy, Dry and Damaged Hair; Sulfate Free
from Project Beauty
This hairgurt hair mask is very soft in texture and a little bit goes a long way on my hair. I have very thin hair and after using this mask, my hair looks so full and shiny. I love it and I use it every third wash.
Since I only use a tiny bit of conditioner on a regular basis to avoid weighing down my hair, my regular conditioner lasts me for years at a time. I had noticed that my beauty supply collection was missing a strong hair masque for the summer. I wanted a product that would remove the hardness that my strands can get after being in chlorine all day.
This product delivered great results! I used it about once a week and as needed after long days in the pool. My hair looked and felt much nicer afterwards. After using this hair masque, I didn’t even need additional styling products to help smooth my hair. I used this masque in mainly in combination with the Hairgurt shampoos, but I found that it also worked well with any shampoos I was using at the time.
I like this scrub a lot. It’s a gentle physical exfoliator, well-packaged and it smells great. (This review is for the ‘Out of the Shower’ scent. The packaging is very giftable–it would look really nice in a spa basket for a school fundraiser or in a care package for a college student. It’s a nice big bottle with understated, refined labeling and an expensive-looking shiny metallic cap.
The big selling point on this scrub in my opinion is the scent. It is advertised as the ‘squeaky clean’ option of the line, but I don’t think that really reflects the smell, because “squeaky clean” to me is a one-note scent of either linen or lemon. I would describe this scent as icy (in the way a piece of gum can be), lightly floral, and, well, soapy. It’s a very clean scent, but it’s not the kind of generic “clean” that might get mistaken for harsh detergent or my dad’s Head and Shoulders–a nice, complex scent that really does stick around all day. It feels much more grown up than a lot of other scented or themed products.
As for the scrubbiness itself–the texture is best described as a creamier version of the St. Ives apricot scrub–the little scrubbies are about the same size and texture (though, as another reviewer notes, the scrubbies here are walnut shells, so people with tree nut allergies should probably avoid this product). The creamy bit that the scrubbies are suspended in is a little thicker than St. Ives, which I guess is probably appropriate for a product intended to be used on the body rather than the face. The product boasts additional substances, too: “Arctic vitamins” and a “super fruit blend” that apparently hydrate and improve skin texture. About half of the ingredients are labelled as the extract of some fruit or other. I’m not terribly knowledgeable about these ingredients, but for folks who might know, they’re there.
The packaging is very giftable–it would look really nice in a spa basket for a school fundraiser or in a care package for a college student. It’s a nice big bottle with understated, refined labeling and an expensive-looking shiny metallic cap.
And, if you’re concerned about ethical buying: the product isn’t tested on animals, and because it uses the natural walnut scrubbies rather than plastic microbeads, it’s much more environmentally friendly.
