.
What’s the current situation with Drunk Elephant’s cruelty-free status?πŸ‘‡πŸ»

Shiseido is NOT a cruelty-free corporation, they DO test on animals when required by law and the brand, as well as, some of their subsidiary brands (like NARS) are sold in mainland China and are required by law to test on animals.

Shiseido does own two cruelty-free brands, bareMinerals and BUXOM.
.
So.. will Drunk Elephant remain Cruelty-Free?

YES! According to Drunk Elephant, they'll remain cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified!!! βœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨Swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to read their response when asked about their cruelty-free standing after the announcement.

Andalou Natural's 10-in-One Benefit Balm for Healthy Hair Styling Gel Review

What would you prefer… a product that can do 10 different things just OK or a product that can do one thing very well?

You can probably already tell where I’m going with this review of Andalou’s 10-in-One Benefit Balm for Healthy Hair Medium Hold Styling Gel.

For the price of $12 and withΒ all natural, vegan ingredients, I wanted to try this product and would be happy if it could do 2 out of 10 of its product claims.

Product Claims:

Andalou Naturals Fruit Stem Cell Science improves hair follicle longevity and vitality for healthy hair from root to tip.

Andalou Natural's 10-in-One Benefit Balm for Healthy Hair Styling Gel ReviewHow to use it?

“Directions for use:Β For straight, curly, and treated hair. Apply evenly to damp hair. Gently comb through, dry naturally or style blow dry.”

How I used it:Β It’s a thick gel consistency with a slight citrus scent that doesn’t linger. I have long, thick hair so I used more than a quarter-size amount. Β I didn’t see a difference in end results whetherΒ IΒ letΒ myΒ hair naturally air dryΒ or blow drying it.

It doesn’t say anything about using it on dry hair, but I tried it anyways and only needed a small dime-size amount and felt like the product works best for styling on dry hair.Andalou Natural's 10-in-One Benefit Balm for Healthy Hair Styling Gel Review

How Did It Perform?

Some visible difference in these claims:

Controlled Styling –Β I find that I get more controlled styling when using the product on dry hair than working it into damp hair as per the directions on the bottle.

Extra Body –Β A little oomph of extra body in my hair after using this product, hair feels a little more full where it’s usually just flat.

Improved Texture –Β I have noticed this product gives my hair more texture but I’m not quite convinced it’s ‘improved’ texture.

Style Definition –Β The bottle says it’s a ‘medium hold’ and I found that the product works best on dry hair when styling. I have long and heavy hair but after curling it and running some of this product through my hair, it would hold throughout the night and part of the following morning too!

Healthy Shine –Β Β There was an ever-so-slightly shine in my hair after using this product. Very minimal though.

Did Not Live Up To These Claims:

Hydration –Β WhenΒ usingΒ the product onΒ damp hair and then letting it air or blow dry, my hair ended up looking very dry. I already have dry ends but after every time I used Andalou’s Benefit Balm Styling Gel, it looked more dry than usual. I combatted this with using argan oil on my ends – argan oil fixes everythang!

No Visible Difference in These Claims:

After using Andalou’s 10-in-One Benefit Balm for Healthy Hair for over a month, I unfortunately did not see any difference (good or bad) with my hair for the following product claims…

– Heat & Color Protection
– Humidity Shield
– Static Control
– Damage Repair

Final Thoughts

This product didn’t blow me away by any means,Β butΒ it wasn’t a major disappointment. Since the ingredients are so natural, I will continue using up the bottle but probably will not be repurchasing it.

Ingredients:Β Aloe Barbadensis Juice*, Cyamopsis Tetragonolobus (Guar) Gum*, Sodium Alginate (Algin), Glycine Soja (Soy) Protein, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Allantoin, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Extract*, Pyrus Cydonia (Quince) Extract, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) and Hibiscus Sabdariffa Extracts*†, Phenethyl Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) and Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Oils*Β {*Organic Β Β  † Fair Trade}
