@MapleHolistics SILK18 #shampoo #giveaway

Happy Valentine's Day. Let's make this day special by giving something away. 

Maple Holistics sent me SILK18 Shampoo to try.


This shampoo helps make your hair stronger, smoother, silkier, and healthier.

Since it keeps snowing I need shampoo that helps with dryness, preventing dandruff and split ends. There are a lot of healthy oils in it, so YAY!

It works great on both natural hair and colored hair.

It's sulfate and paraben-free! I look for that because I have a problem with sulfates.

The shampoo its self is made in the US!

Maple Holistics is for recycling. I wish that would rub off on my work. ;) I'm pro reusing and recycling. It's important to me that we take care of our home AKA Earth.


On Maple Holistics' website they only list key ingredients. On the bottle they have everything. I looked up all of them. Most of them are oils, some are acids that restore the moisture in your hair. There are some foaming agents, and fillers. I couldn't find one that is harmful. If you do have any sensitivities to coconut oil, then this may not be the shampoo for you. I actually do well with coconut oil. 

  • Water
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate - It's a surfactant-cleansing agent in cosmetic formulations. It is recorded as being safe.
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine - Because cocamidopropyl betaine originates from coconut oil, even some personal care products labeled as natural still contain it. Although the government regards the ingredient as safe, some people do have negative reactions after exposure to it.
  • Sodium Lauroamphoacetate - It is a yellow substance derived from coconut.
  • Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate - It is the salt of the coconut fatty acid. It is a soft white paste and is derived from coconut. It's used as a cleaning and foaming agent.
  • Sodium Lauryl Glucoside Carboxylate - It is a foaming agent that is derived from glucoside from coconut and corn.
  • Lauryl Glucoside Copolymer - It is a yellow substance derived from palm kernel oil, corn sugar, or coconut. The ingredient is a substance formed by mixing alcohols and sugar or glucose.
  • Coco-Glucoside - It is a foaming agent derived from renewable raw materials such as coconut oil and corn and fruit sugars, and is completely biodegradable.
  • Glyceryl Oleate - It is produced from oils that contain high concentrations of oleic acid, such as olive oil, peanut oil, teaseed oil or pecan oil.
  • Caprylhydroxamic Acid - Is an amino acid derived from coconut oil.
  • Glyceryl Caprylate Glycerin - It is an vegetable oil and water mix that restores the oils of the skin, regulates the skin moisture and acts as a humidifier to the skin.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate - It is the salt form of Hyaluronic Acid, a water-binding ingredient that has the ability to fill the spaces between the connective fibers known as collagen and elastin.
  • Silk Amino Acids - A key ingredient in many hair products for boosting hair growth. These jelly-like proteins lock the moisture in the hair.
  • Argan (Argania Spinosa) Oil - It is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. It has high vitamin E and fatty acid content.
  • Sodium PCA - A sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid.
  • D-Panthenol - It is a derivative of vitamin B5. It helps maintain moisture.
  • Botanical Keratin - The outermost layer of our skin consists of a protein called keratin, this means that keratin is produced and exists naturally in our bodies.
  • Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) Oil - It is likely very helpful in treating dry scalp and dandruff issues. It's also rich in vitamins and minerals.
  • Natural Vanilla Fragrance - Not needed, but makes your hair smell nice.


I always think directions for things like shampooing your hair are kind of silly. Who doesn't know how to wash their hair effectively? Ha! Here are the directions anyhow...

  1. Rinse Hair
  2. Massage Quarter- Sized Amount Throughout Scalp
  3. Allow it to Set for 2 to 3 Minutes
  4. Repeat - Many shampoos with more natural ingredients have you repeat.
  5. Rinse Well

A Giveaway that starts on Valentines Day! YAY! 

For people living in the US only please. For ages 18 and up. No P.O. Boxes. Ends on February 28.

I like that is is natural. I need something good for my dry scalp because this winter has been so brutal on it! I think the oils in this one sound nourishing!

My hair/ head is so weird.. it can get oily sometimes, and yet be dry and have dandruff at other times too! Hard to find a good shampoo that works and even then, I have to change after a while because it loses its effectiveness if I keep using it too long...
