Review – Parlor Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner

5 Nov

In my October Birchbox, was a pair of Jeff  Chastain Parlor products; Parlor Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.


I’ve received Parlor products in Birchbox in the past, and I’m usually a fan.  Most recently, I had a sea salt spray from the line, and loved it.

This shampoo and conditioner are rather expensive.  Be prepared to pay $22.00 USD for 8 Fl oz of product.  You can buy it through Birchbox. Here is what they say about it:


This gently cleansing shampoo from NYC stylist Jeff Chastain is a triple-threat of fortification, hydration, and repair. Infused with the brand’s signature scent of ripe peach, fresh cut grass, and white woods, it’s sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and color-safe.

My thoughts

So, just a shampoo.  It was nice.  It smelled nice.  It lathered nice.  It was…well…nice.  But it did exactly what it was supposed to do – clean my hair.  And it did that.  It didn’t wow me with anything.

Same goes for the conditioner.

One thing to note – it was gentle on my color treated hair.

However, I didn’t find it to be any more or less moisturizing than any other high end shampoo.

Would I buy it?

Not for $22.  Sorry, Parlor!

Have you tried the Parlor Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner?  Do you like it?

Thanks for reading!

    Great post! I have a hard time spending a lot of money on shampoo and conditioner. I’ve really been happy with Tresemme’ and Pantene lately. I’m constantly switching out my hair care regime. I have naturally curly fine hair. Menopause is killing my hair, so I’m always looking for the next best thing.

      I know what you mean. If I’m gonna spend some cash, it needs to wow me!

        The cheaper brands have come so far. I can’t remember the last time I bought salon shampoo and conditioner. I do love Perfect Hair Day Dry shampoo. A bit pricey, but well worth it. Do you have a favorite dry shampoo?

        Yup! It’s Perfect Hair Day! I think their products are worth the price. For salon brands, TJmaxx or Marshalls are a good place.

        Have you tried the new Full Dry volume blast from PHD? It was dreadful! I took it back the next day. Here’s a review I did.
