Orchid Shampoo

Recently I spotted Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo at the drugstore. After buying it, I saw that it contains “Orchis mascula flower extract.” This Orchis is a terrestrial species, probably a distant second to vanilla as the most important commercial orchid. Native to an enormous range of Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Northern Asia, its underground tubers have been used in traditional foods, medicines, and even ice cream for millenia. Since it’s not a fragrant orchid, I’m not sure what purpose the flower extract serves for hair care, but the shampoo does leave my hair soft and moisturized like the label says. I certainly recommend you try it, and enjoy the flowers in your hair.

    Soft and silky orchids? Very interesting hair care idea. If my hair loves ice cream as much as my stomach does, it will be my favorite 🙂

    Shampoo lathers up nicely and feels clean. My hair feels fresh and nourished when I’m done. I love it.
