How do you feel about cucumbers? More specifically, how do you feel about cucumbers in your hair? Yes To, purveyors of organic fruit and veggie-inspired hair and skin products, hopes youâ€™ll say yes to â€˜em.
When I spotted this bottle of Yes To Cucumbers Color Care Shampoo ($9) at Target on a recent trip, I immediately recalled the bomb-@ss Yes To Cucumbers conditioner I tried a while back, so I figured what the hay and threw the bottle in my cart.
I’ve been looking for something interesting (and much less expensive) to alternate with the Kerastase Chroma Sensitive Cleansing Balm Iâ€™ve been loving for a few months, and thatâ€™s what I hoped this cool cucumber would be.
I like the list of ingredients, which Yes To says are 99.8% natural. It does contain, among other things, cucumber (no big surprise there), as well as aloe, olive, sweet almond oil, jojoba, green tea and algae, and itâ€™s petroleum-, paraben- and SLS-free.
Tabs also wanted me to point out that itâ€™s cruelty-free, and for that, if nothing else, he gives it two big paws up (emphasis on big, as heâ€™s a husky boy).
First things first: I love, LOVE how it smells â€“ like chilled, freshly cut cucumber slices. If I didnâ€™t know better, I’d be tempted to eat it (NOTE: it is NOT edible).
But shampoos are meant for more than just sniffing, right? So I took it into the shower with me, and thatâ€™s where things kinda took a wrong turn.
