ADOVIA Dead Sea Mud Shampoo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Sara here, back at ya with another ADOVIA review! The first time it was a mask, this time it's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo! Sounds intriguing, right?!

A little background on the shampoo:

"ADOVIA's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo is formulated with pure Dead Sea mud and natural moisturizers such as Olive Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Aloe Vera. Dead Sea minerals present in the mud provide relief for a dry or irritated scalp and leave hair naturally moisturized, fuller and manageable. Vitamin E strengthens the hair root and Chamomile leaves your hair soft and flexible."

One of the first things that people do when they get a new shampoo is smell it, right? Or is that just me?!

Anyhow, I didn't really know what to expect by seeing the color of the shampoo. It's an almost blue/gray pearly color (very pretty). The first time, I really didn't care for the scent. I thought it was almost a floral scent. However, the more I smelled of it, the better I started to like it. Now...I really don't think it's floral but more of a clean, fresh almost soapy scent. I really can't pinpoint one certain thing that it smells like. However, the scent is very familiar!

One big thumbs down for me. Literally...for ME! I wanted to show a picture of how the shampoo works and I completely forgot!
When you squeeze it into your hand, it's a bit more gel like than what I would prefer. I'd rather it be more on the creamy side. When you do apply it in your hair, it does get nice and sudsy. Yeah, yeah...I know the suds aren't what cleans your hair, but it gives me a piece of mind! Overall, not a whole lot different than a big name brand.

As usual, I let my hair air dry once I got out of the shower to get honest results. At first I really didn't think it was different than any other brand. It was however, very soft and smooth. It also seemed much easier to comb through my hair than with my regular shampoo. When I did really notice the difference was when I went to put my hair up into a ponytail! My pony felt so THICK in my hands! I don't know what it was in the shampoo or that that was even possible, but it was!

At $23, this is probably something that I would only buy on very rare occasions. While I really like the shampoo and its thickening effect, I just can't see paying that much for something that I use on a daily basis. It just isn't economical to me.
Though I would suggest that you give it a try at least once as it is very unique. You can find this product on Amazon!
