Review & Giveaway : Sparklehearts Shampoo & Conditioner


Sparklehearts is a Southern California based company that specializes in "natural beauty for girls" through the creation of an excellent (and utterly adorable) line of skin and hair care products. One quick glimpse at the fun, colorful packaging and you would swear this was a conventional, chemical laden product, but upon closer inspection you will find out quite the opposite! Sparklehearts products are indeed "natural beauty" & the company has exceptional business practices which include:
  • Use of 99.6% natural & organic ingredients
  • 100% recycled packaging
  • Plant and vegetable based ingredients (no petroleum based ingredients)
  • Paraben, Phtalate, Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulfate free
  • Products are made in the USA
  • No animal testing
Soooooo good. In fact, so good that I contacted Sparklehearts about featuring their products here and they very kindly provided me with a bottle of Shine Shampoo and Soft Conditioner to try out!

The packaging is super cute with their pink pumps and bright, summery graphics. Love it! The products also have unique, fun scents (more on that later). Most importantly, the products do perform really, really well. To be honest, I was so excited about the packaging that I was expecting just average performance. I was surprised that these were actually really awesome products that gave me high quality results... and I am very picky about my hair care.

Shine Shampoo: The shampoo scent is equal parts citrusy and sweet florals. The product doesn't give a large amount of lather, but its sufficient. I usually like a ton of lather since I have a ton of hair, but even with less lather than I'm used to the product was still able to clean my hair thoroughly. Even without the conditioner, the shampoo left my hair feeling soft and light. My hair wasn't dried out or greasy after using this product which are the two most common problems I have with shampoos. Love this shampoo!



Soft Conditioner: This conditioner smells like caaandyyy. I feel like I'm getting a sugar rush just thinking about it. Then again, I am sitting here sniffing my bottle of conditioner as I type this. I can't exactly pinpoint which candy it smells like, but its somewhere along the lines of a cherry or grape Sweet Tart! The conditioner leaves a lingering subtle, sweet scent in your hair which is perfect for younger girls, but also great for older ones (like me!) as a break from the norm. I loved that neither the shampoo nor conditioner had any sort of "chemical" scent. Oh and other than smelling good, the conditioner worked well to leave my hair smooth and soft but not weighed down or greasy. Another winner!

I absolutely love Sparklehearts! Their products are perfect for younger girls because of the fun packaging and sweet scent, but its also great for us older gals as well because of the excellent results!
