Organic Surge Color Protect Shampoo, Conditioner (for colored hair) : Review

 

My hair has always been troublesome though last year I discovered the Sunsilk Keratinology range which gave a healthy boost to my hair. Unfortunately, after 2-3 months on continuous use, my hairfall worsened and I got dandruff which just won’t go no matter what shampoo I used. I decided to switch to an SLS-free shampoo/conditioner and within 2 weeks of use, my hairfall reduced drastically and the dandruff which was actually chemical product buildup went away as well!

I have been using the Organic Surge Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner since about 5 weeks now.

My take on the Product

 

The shampoo comes in a squeeze tube packaging with a bright red and green pattern and a flip open cap. The shampoo is a pale peachy brown color and has a very runny consistency. Because its so runny, it rushes out of the tube the moment you open the cap so one needs to be a little cautious. The shampoo has a lovely lychee scent which is more like candied fruit to my nose than actually lychee. Its not heavy and I like it. Because it is free from SLS which is the major foaming agent used in shampoos/soaps, it doesn’t lather a lot. For those who are used to SLS containing foaming shampoos, it might seem like the shampoo is not doing a good job of cleansing the scalp and hair. I certainly felt so when I first started using it and used to wash the hair twice. In the second wash it lathered a little more and once the hair was rinsed, the strands felt squeaky clean. If you oil your hair before shampoo, you would need 2-3 washes to wash off the oil completely.

It does not dry out my hair and when it used in combination with the conditioner, it does a good job of preserving the hair color and adding a fair level of shine, health and bounce to the hair.

My take on the Product

 

The conditioner comes in a similar tube packaging as the shampoo except that the conditioner tube is slightly smaller, containing 200 ml of product instead of the 250 ml of the shampoo. The conditioner is white in color has a thicker, creamier (less runny) texture than the shampoo. It spreads through the hair easily and is easy to wash off. Since its free from Silicones, it does not give that ultra silky, smooth feel to the hair. But it does detangle and moisturize the hair to a good extent. My hair is pretty dry so I do need a serum post wash but the conditioner does a decent job of frizz-control even though it does not feel very rich. The conditioner has the same fruity scent as the shampoo though its much milder. I like the fact that it doesn’t weigh down my hair. My hair feel quite light and healthy and the color seems to last longer.

I do wish it was a little more moisturizing but I always use my Kerastase Elixir Ultime on wet hair post wash to keep dryness at bay so its not a big issue.

 

 

Overall Verdict

 

Even though the Organic Surge Color Protect duo doesn’t make my hair as smooth and tangle-free as the Sunsilk Keratinology did, I’m thankful that my hair is no longer falling out in bunches! My scalp feels cleaner and free from itchy chemical buildup (which I thought was dandruff) as well! The shampoo is free from SLS and hence doesn’t lather a lot but in 2 washes, it does give a squeaky clean feel to the hair. The conditioner is free from silicones do doesn’t make the hair silky smooth but it does detangle and moisturize.

Since I haven’t used any other SLS free shampoos yet, I’m not sure how this one compares with the others like The Body Shop Rainforest range. But overall, I’m quite happy with the products chiefly since my hairfall and dandruff is in control! While my hair doesn’t feel very smooth/shiny or soft,  it feels healthier, lighter and free from chemical buildup.

Rating : 4.25/5

  1. The shampoo and conditioner both seem good. I’m currently using the Giovanni SLS free, paraben free shampoo and conditioner which I’m loving.

  2. i am using organic surge shine boost shampoo since past one year and my experience is exactly like urs. texture, packaging, less hairfall, healthy scalp, doesnt remove oil effectively in single wash, not imparting the results of chemical laden shampoos!! i too get mine from medplusbeauty.

    recently i got organix pink grapefruit n guava shampoo from purplle. its equally good. i think it cleans the scalp more effectively than organic surge.

    ankita, i always praise your indepth and authentic reviews. u leave no doubts at all. all the answers are there in the review 🙂 i wish i cud get more reviews each day 🙂 ur review is like final sentence for me

    1. Thank you so much Jyoti 🙂

      I’m tempted to try the Organix one now, will give it a shot once these Organic Surge tubes get over!

  3. sorry, the organix one is passionfruit and guava.

    i have used tbs rainforest shine shampoo too. i.dont remember why, but i dint like it at all. btw, biotique customer care lady claims that their shampoos contain coconut derived sulphates. that means even if they write sls in ingredients, its not sls 🙂 i have tried their greeen apple shampoo years back. cant tell u if it was good coz my hair was so healthy tht time, every shampoo used to give me good result ! hehe!

  4. i just had bad experience with loreal paris total repair shampoo nd conditioner…it increased my dandruff nd hairfall problem….going to try organic surge hope it works…. any other suggestion ankita…..

  5. Doesnt suit my hair at all.

    After reading the reviews on many sites including this one, I bought the organic surge shampoo for colored hair.. turns out it doesnt wash all the oil away while at the same time making my hair really dry. The worst part is till that when I ordered 1 conditioner and 1 shampoo, what I received was 2 shampoo bottles.
    🙁
    Dont know what to do with it now.

    1. Too bad it didn’t work for you Khushboo. You should definitely mail the customer service and ask for a replacement for the extra shampoo. Since we are used to shampoos and conditioners that are loaded with chemicals, it seems like the Organic ones are making it dry because they don’t give the silky effect but after a few washes, the hair texture gets adjusted to the new product. Hope you’re using a conditioner along with it because you definitely need that. Also use a serum post wash to take care of the dryness.
