A picture of Dead Sea Spa Magik Hair Magic Serum and Mineral Shampoo
Dead Sea Spa Magik use a blend of mud, salt and mineral extracts from the depths of the Dead Sea to deeply hydrate, repair and soothe your body and mind. Their products use certified organic ingredients, contain no parabens (preservatives which have been linked with negative media reports), have an allergen-free fragrance (allergens can potentially cause allergic reactions!), have a harmonised water base (unique due to the de-ionising process used to remove all impurities), are skin friendly (suitable for those even with the most sensitive of skin types) and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The mineral shampoo invigorates hair and scalp, alleviates dandruff and soothes an irritated scalp (this product is however, not suitable for vegans) whereas the magic hair serum works as a conditioning treatment, especially beneficial for dry and damaged hair.

The lovely people at Dead Sea Spa Magik offered to send me some shampoo and conditioner samples for me to try (sorry for the very poor quality photo, as you can imagine an almost entirely white and very glossy product is hard to photograph) and as I have now tried these out over the past week, I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

Neither product really has a scent to it, but both feel luxuriously silky and thick, without being too mucky. On the first wash of the shampoo, I found it doesn't really lather. But on the second, is really works up a good lather with lots and lots of bubbles! It's easy to move around your hair, doesn't create knots nor feel sticky if you run your fingers through it, as some shampoos can. The serum which is an intensive conditioning treatment is much the same and the consistency of this product is plain to see that it contains minerals in it, it just has a certain look about it. 

Both the mineral shampoo and the magic hair serum left my hair feeling incredibly soft, insanely clean and very naturally shiny. I received two sachets of each product, huge sample sizes, of which I got three washes out of each. Hence why these have lasted me a week! 

The only downside to these is that for my hair at least which is naturally oily, the effects don't last a hugely long time and it has meant washing my hair on a daily basis, whereas usually to battle the natural oil I would wash my hair every other day. But that is a small negative for products which left my hair feeling very lovely!

I'm not sure I would purchase the full size of these, just yet. But I am interested in the brand, the ethics behind their products as well as the process which goes in to making their products, and will be checking out the mud facial mask and super hand cream once my 100 Day Challenge is over!
