This article was updated in August 2016 with new information about Wen Products.
I discussed the benefits of pomegranate seed oil for wash and gos in the previous article. After some research, here are 3 great products I found containing pomegranate seed oil with good consistent feedback among users. Pomegranate seed oil on its own is fine but some readers also like to know about products that contain the oils in case they want to incorporate it in their regimen.
Nature’s Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Conditioner is SLS and paraben free, and is ideal for fine and/or colour-treated hair. Apart from pomegranate, it also includes sunflower oil, which has a whooping ceramide concentration of 68%, panthenol, soy Proteins, vegetable Proteins, jojoba oil, borage oil, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The conditioner isn’t thick enough for deep conditioning purposes and is better suited for everyday use. It hydrates and protects the tresses without weighing down hair. It also has a shampoo version but the reviews aren’t favourable. It costs less than $10 and comes in a 16oz bottle, which can last for quite some time.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Stearyl Alcohol (Vegetable Derived), Cetyl Alcohol (Vegetable Derived), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Vegetable Derived), Benzyl Alcohol, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Aspalathus Linearis (Red Tea) Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Leaf Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Extract, Viola Tricolor (Pansy) Extract, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Stearalkonium Chloride (Vegetable Derived), Ascorbyl Palmitate, Hydroxyethylcellulose (Plant Derived), Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid (Vegetable Derived), Fragrance (Phthalate free).
Burt’s Bees Very Volumizing Pomegranate Conditioner is also sls and paraben free. The conditioner is formulated to give hair a fuller and thicker appearance in addition to softness. It also contains avocado oil, which is ideal for dry and brittle hair. It is a lightweight conditioner and works well for everyday use and all hair types. It has a shampoo version but users have mentioned using the two in combination wasn’t a pleasant experience. This conditioner also costs less than $10 but comes in 10oz size.
Ingredients: Aqua (water, eau), cetyl alcohol, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, brassica alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, hydrolyzed jojoba protein, arginine, lactic acid, punica granatum seed oil, parfum (fragrance) sodium polyaspartate, stearyldimoniumhydroxypropyl lauryl glucosides chloride, glycerin, brassicyl isoleucinate esylate, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, behenyl behenate, cetrimonium bromide sodium chloride, leuconostoc ferment filtrate, ascorbic acid, citric acid, potassium sorbate.
The Wen Pomegranate Cleansing Conditioner was formulated to “…replace shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, leave-in conditioner, and even shaving cream.” It’s supposed to cleanse and hydrate hair without stripping. The conditioner comes with very specific instructions which take a bit of time to implement but reviews suggest if followed properly, the results are impressive. It’s suitable for all hair types and the 6oz bottle costs a steep $30. The pomegranate series also has an entire line, which you can check out here – Wen Pomegranate Oil Line
