L’Occitane en Provence Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner Review

After reading great things about the Aromachologie line from L’Occitane, I decided to give the shampoo and conditioner a shot. It comes in plastic bottles that look sleek in design with a cool silver top. At first, I thought the bottle was made from glass. But good thing it is made of plastic or else it’ll be too heavy and not safe in the bath! But anyways, repair your dry, dull, and damaged hair with L’Occitane’s Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.

Both the shampoo (10.1 fl oz) usa.loccitane.com and conditioner (8.4 fl oz) usa.loccitane.com are priced at $18 each.

One of the first things you would notice on the label of the shampoo is the number “5.” To simplify things, it means that there are 5 essential oils which include Angelica, Lavender, Geranium, Ylang-ylang, and Patchouli. It also includes wheat proteins that help repair, strengthen, regenerate, and soften damaged hair.

When I first used this, my initial impression was that it held a woody scent and it wasn’t bubbly. But surprisingly, it rinses and cleanses quite well. Leaves the hair soft and silky smooth. Not to mention it smells great.

The 5 essential oils in the conditioner are the same as the shampoo. Difference?! It added the sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil is used to strengthen and soften dry and damaged hair. The final result is the hair feels smooth and healthy.

While using the conditioner, I found that it smells really refreshing because of the essential oils. The consistency is rather light like a hair serum but it deeply nourishes hair. Just remember to massage the conditioner through and leave on for a minute or two. Afterwards rinse off.

Here is an up close shot of the top of the shampoo bottle. The conditioner has the same squeeze cap. It’s almost like a water bottle except more sophisticated in design.

After using both the shampoo and conditioner, the hair obviously smells fresh and cleansed. The not so heavy foam doesn’t really make a whole lot of difference since it is enough to cleanse the hair and it is really gentle on the scalp.

    These two products sound lovely but I love foaming action so don’t know if I will be able to use the shampoo and feel satsified.

      A little bit more foam would have been more satisfying. But nonetheless it does cleanse quite well.

    I have the soothing type shampoo from L’occitane and really love how it calms my scalp. You should try it too.

      That is actually on my list. You read my mind. 🙂

    I love L’occitane hand creams. They are the best but I want to try their shampoos too.

    The bottle looks really interesting. Is it hard to pour because it seems really small?

      Not at all. It is quite easy. It pours out without much effort. Just turn the bottle upside down.

    Hi. Just wondering if you’ve tried L’Occitane Aromachologie Soothing Shampoo. I’ve heard it tends to dry out hair. Thank you.

      It’s the purple colored bottle right? I did try it like a couple years ago. Didn’t remember it was drying but I always use hair conditioner or hair mask afterwards so it’s not a problem for me.
