All About Drunk Elephants New Hair Care Line
Oh my word, I FINALLY had the chance to try Drunk Elephants’ new hair care line! I swear this line has been sold out, so I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to get my hands on it.
I made sure not to look at any reviews before I purchased, this line had to be tried blindly (which I rarely do)
Recently I have been purchasing products without reading other reviews for a few reasons. One, it gives me significant anxiety, and also we all have different needs.
I was excited to see a scalp treatment as a part of the line. My scalp tends to be extremely itchy, and I’m one that lacks discipline. I scratch the shit out of my scalp.
Before getting my hands on the new haircare line I wanted to make it clear I wasn’t searching for a new shampoo, I honestly just wanted to try it and share the results!
The hair care line is free of sulfates, silicones, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols. Cruelty-free.
Lets Jump into all about drunk elephants new hair care line!
I was most excited to try this, and it’s one of my favorites out of 4 products I tried.
After looking at the bottle, I noticed the Happi Scalp has AHA/BHA acid. My mind automatically thought about skincare.
The AHA/BHA is designed to help break down and dissolve dead skin cells and styling product buildup. Since I tend to have a problem with dandruff, I was already sold.
I was a little nervous, however, to try. Since I tend to scratch my scalp until a scab forms, I was worried about how bad this was going to sting. The first time I used this, I did experience a slight tingly feeling, but it wasn’t anything significant.
The Happi Scalp is basically supposed to keep your scalp hydrated, balanced, therefore reducing the annoying flakes that come from an unhappy scalp.
So far, yes, I have noticed I haven’t been scratching as much. Is this a miracle product? I would make some tweaks to it personally like adding more of a minty feeling to help soothe an itchy scalp, but overall it does what I intended it to do.
Here are the Star Ingredients in The Happi Scalp with the breakdown and how they benefit your scalp.
Use on a dry scalp
Section your hair, focusing on troubled areas first
Since you have to leave on for 10 mins or longer, I recommend doing this before you shower.
I like this Scrub, I have noticed a change in my scalp the itchiness has decreased. I also tried this on my face as a light exfoliant, and honestly, it was pleasant. There is a faint smell, it reminds me of Aveda Cherry Almond. Overall, When this does run out, I will probably repurchase!
I will say I was the least excited to try this, and I’m not sure why. So far, my favorite shampoo of all time is from Ouai. I haven’t found anything that stands up to it.
Now everything I try has to live up to the Ouai Standards!
The Coconino Glossing Shampoo says it’s for both scalp and hair in mind. Also, there are no artificial thickeners, meaning the Cocomino Shampoo has a lightweight liquid feel, and a little goes a long way.
This shampoo is sulfate-free, color-safe making it gentle for all hair types. Coconino is supposed to cleanse your hair without damaging the hair shaft or stripping your color.
This shampoo is supposed to help strengthen your hair by preventing water loss, smoothing your hair. Almost acting like a heat protectant for your hair. Cocomino doesn’t have thickeners (I didn’t know that was added to shampoo also) which gives it a lightweight texture.
After using this for a few weeks, I haven’t grown to love it as much as my Ouai. I don’t hate this shampoo, but I felt I didn’t vibe for a few reasons.
A little doesn’t go a long way for me. I have thick curly hair, and I feel like I need an excellent lathering shampoo to cleanse. While the later is decent, I’ve had to use a large amount.
I’ve had to change how I shampoo my hair with this shampoo, which may not be a bad thing. I’ve focused the Cocomino on my scalp only, but I don’t feel like my hair/ head is thoroughly clean.
I will say this is a very lightweight shampoo, and the texture is nice, but I feel like it will run out quickly for me.
It’s tough for me to judge a shampoo because I jump in with a conditioner afterward, which adds moisture.
Overall, I probably won’t be purchasing Cocomino again. This can be great for those with fine hair or those that only want a clarifying shampoo for your scalp.
The Cocomino conditioner surprised me, and my hair was shook the very second I added to my hair. Conditioners are essential for me in my hair care routine. You can find it here if you haven’t checked out my post about tips and tricks for hair growth.
In that post, one of the tips I share is the importance of finding a good leave-in conditioner, not just a conditioner. The Cocomino lived past my expectations! I use this as a leave-in conditioner, and my curls haven’t looked better!
This conditioner helps by penetrating the hair shaft to protect against damage done by heat styling and color treatments.
The minute I applied the conditioner to my hair, I was able to immediately tell the difference.
The Cocomino helps combat frizz, adds shine, and improves the overall manageability of your hair.
I genuinely love this conditioner because it leaves my hair soft, it’s not greasy, and my curls have a nice bounce I have missed.
I absolutely love this conditioner, and I will definitely be repurchasing this again. I love the creamy texture of this conditioner, and it’s not greasy, so I can use it as my leave-in conditioner.
The Cocomino smells the same as the Happi Scalp, which is faint, so I love it.
I wear this as a leave-in treatment when I’m going to wear my hair curly. However, when I want to wear my hair straight, I will rinse out.
Again, another product I was shook by. Before using this, I was using the Ouai leave-in conditioner, and that is def still my numero uno. However, the Wild Marula is a very close second, and I mean very close.
Wild Marula is a superfine (supa freak), a leave-in mist that detangles and smooths your hair. I love this stuff; the mist is so fine it’s incredible, and the best part, I don’t need a ton for my hair to feel hydrated.
This leave-in Conditioner helps to condition your hair while strengthening against the high temperatures of hair straighteners and dryers.
I love to add this to my hair while it’s damp, and it works wonders before I blowdry my hair. It doesn’t cut down on the blowdry time, BUT my hair feels so soft afterward. I almost forget its there because it’s not sticky, greasy or heavy.
The face that this leave-in Conditioner has a mist that is extremely fine makes this worth it alone. With a fine mist, you’re able to hydrate a more substantial area or your hair while not having to use a ton.
Wild Marula leaves my hair incredibly soft, and I see the difference in using this.
I will say if you don’t need to have a ton of hydration, you may not need this and the Conditioner. If I had to choose between the two, that would be a hard one.
But I would have to go to the Conditioner.
That’s all I have about Drunk Elephants new Hair Care line
Overall, I enjoyed using this line some products more than others in the line.
I love the fact that this line is free of sulfates, silicone, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols and its cruelty-free. It makes me feel better with what I’m adding to my hair.
I will say this entire hair care line is luxurious, come on were talking Drunk Elephant here.
With that being said, I personally can live without the Shampoo. Like I mentioned above, the shampoo can be great for those with fine hair, or only want to focus on cleansing your scalp.
If I could only choose two, I would definitely have to go with the Happi Scalp and the Cocomino Conditioner.
Healthy hair starts with the scalp, and keeping it free of buildup is a must for hair growth.
