Aussie Spotlight: Juuce

Hi lovely things! I’m back after the whole month of November away from the blogosphere. I completed NaNoWriMo last night (yay!), had the last month of school before the summer holidays and there may have been a small flare up of anxiety (nothing to worry about, I’ve got a handle on it now). So how was your month? If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, I hope you’re keeping warm, and if you’re down under like me, stay cool!

Earlier in the month, I tried a selection of products from Juuce by Hair Jamm. Originally I had wanted to try their Pure range, but I had difficulty finding it stocked anywhere, and it seems like the website does not ship or provide information on stockists.

This is the first salon range that I’ve tried for the Aussie Spotlight series, so I was able to try more than just a shampoo and conditioner. I also picked up a leave in conditioner and a curling cream as well as a treatment.

Let’s go!

Colour Vamp Colour Protection Shampoo
Juuce.shampoo
This shampoo… to be honest, I ended up not being such a fan of this shampoo. It has sulfates in it, and it reminded me why I’m such a stickler for low sulfate shampoos. Every day that I washed my hair, it would be soft, but by the second day, it was a fuzzy mess.

Colour Vamp Colour Protection Conditioner
Juuce.conditioner
This conditioner is sooo slippery. It was perfect for detangling knots and the comb would slip right through my hair. Granted, one reason it has such great slip, is that it contains silicones. I’m not sure if they also played a part in my fuzzy hair – but they most likely did not help.

Shock Treatment Intensive Repair Treatment

On the days that I used this, my hair definitely behaved better – because it is a treatment as opposed to a daily conditioner, the ratio of synthetic to natural was a bit more balanced. And despite it being thicker, it also was great for detangling the knots in the more damaged sections of my hair.

Solar Enz Leave In Sun Protection

This product appealed to me because of the sun protection claim, but I mainly purchased it because it was a leave in conditioner. This is a great softening leave in conditioner, and for those with fine hair that is easily weighed down, I would stay away from this because it will make your hair fluffy and without definition. But if you have coloured, especially lightened, hair, I believe this is a good product to layer under any defining products. However, it does contain silicones as well, so be careful if you want to avoid them.

Kinky Curl Enhancer This product was suggested by Laras 🙂
juuce.kinkycurl
This product I have actually used before. It was a go-to curl enhancer for me in the first few years of using the CG method. It does not contain silicones, so is safe if you’re a strict CG, and provides a nice, soft hold. And it smells like flowers – for some people it might be a bit too strong, but quite often I would get compliments on the smell. The consistency of the product is somewhere between a cream and a gel, and it dries into a cast like a light hold gel, that is easy to scrunch out.
Of all the Juuce products, this is the one I am most likely to repurchase.

Where can you get Juuce? I got it from salonshoponline.com.au. I had trouble finding it anywhere else. I used to be able to find it at Price Attack and Hairhouse Warehouse, but this time around I had no luck, even online.

How much is it? $$$

Eco-friendly? 4/10

Animal testing? Yes (couldn’t find an indication otherwise 😦 )

Curly Girl friendly? No; 1/3

Colour safe? Yes

What do you think, readers? Will you try or have you tried Juuce? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Love and waves,
Astrid
