Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo & the Intensive Conditioning Treatment
The Products are affordable but I won’t repurchase them because they didn’t work for my hair type.
After years of using sulfate shampoos, I decided I needed to make a change and try a sulfate-free one. When I began my search, Creme of Nature was one of the hair brands that popped up. I’ve known about Creme of Nature products for some time and I know how affordable they are. Therefore, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give the brand a try.
Creme of Nature has several hair care lines like their Argan Oil Line, Pure Honey Line, Clay and Charcoal Line and Aloe and Black Castor Oil Line.
But, my focus was on their Argan line because they have a sulfate-free shampoo and I was able to get this product at most of the beauty stores nearby. So, I went out and bought 3 products from their Argan Oil line.
I got the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo, the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment and the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Pure-Licious Co-wash.
However, I won’t be reviewing the co-wash right now. That’s for another post.
Now, Let’s get started with the shampoo.

How I Used the Product
I started by putting my hair into sections, then wet my hair with water before applying the shampoo. I like wetting my hair before applying shampoo because doing this helps me to use less product and I’m also able to better spread the product on my hair.
So after wetting my hair, I poured a reasonable amount of shampoo into my hand, then worked it into my hair and scalp for a few minutes.
Once I was finished, I thoroughly rinsed my hair to get rid of all the product.
The shampoo reminds me of the Alberto VO5 shampoo, but the only difference between both products is that the Creme of Nature shampoo is less stripping.
I don’t consider the shampoo to be sulfate-free because it left my hair feeling a bit dry and tangled.
- It has a lovely scent
- The shampoo left my hair shiny and clean
- It lathers well like a sulfate shampoo, but it’s less harsh
- Slightly drying
- I couldn’t detangle my hair with the shampoo

After shampooing with Creme of Nature® Shampoo, apply a generous amount to hair and comb through for even distribution. Place a plastic cap over the hair and sit under a warm hooded dryer for 10–15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and follow with any Creme of Nature Argan Oil styling product.

- Color and Consistency: It has cream color and a very creamy consistency.
- Scent: I’m sorry to say this, but it smells like bug spray or mosquito repellent.
How I Used the Product
The first time I tried the product, I used it as a rinse-out conditioner. I placed it on my hair and then kept it on for about 3 minutes before rinsing it out.
It’s not supposed to be used as a rinse-out conditioner, but as a treatment. However, I wanted to know what the difference would be if I used it both ways.
Now, my second time around, I covered my hair and waited for 10-15 minutes before rinsing the treatment out.
Sadly, I was left with bad results after using the products both ways.
You see, applying the product as a rinse-out conditioner left my hair feeling dry. But, using it as a treatment made it even worse.
Every time I did the treatment, I would lose a lot of hair. I’m surprised at the results because the product is supposed to strengthen my hair, not break it.
- You get a lot of product for the price
- It smells like bug spray
- My hair was absolutely dry after each use
- I lost a lot of hair
I like that I got a lot of product for the price but I don’t see myself repurchasing the products simply because they do nothing but dry out my hair. The shampoo wasn’t entirely bad but, it wasn’t amazing either. As for the conditioning treatment, it did absolutely nothing.
