Wishtrend recently launched a skincare brand called Jungle Botanics, which currently has three products ~ Forest Leaves Cooling Shampoo, Forest Leaves Warming Treatment and Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub.  I have reviewed the Cooling Shampoo here and I have another review for you today with their Warming Treatment.   I was very excited to be picked by Wishtrend to review these brand new hair care products.

We’re from the jungle.  Jungle Botanics brings you the vitality of the green jungle amidst the jungle of concrete by combining advanced technologies with  superb ingredients direct from Mother Nature.  Our mission is to replenish natural energy and return balance  to your skin by using revitalizing elements found in nature, and in turn restoring the natural, healthy state of your skin.  We found our answer in the jungle.

This treatment is free from silicone and phthalates and just like the Cooling Shampoo, is made with a variety of natural plant extracts, called Amazon Forest Complex.  Forest Leaves Warming Treatment is specially formulated for color treated, permed, dry, damaged or frizzy hair and is supposed to have a gentle warming action that will help open up your hair shaft so that the beneficial nutrients and oils can be more easily absorbed into your hair.

This has salicylic acid so that it will help unclog your hair follicles of dirt and oil, allowing for new hair growth.  This has deeply nourishing and concentrated plant oils and extracts in here ~ pracaxi, moringa , acerola, brazil nut, coconut, grape, peach kernel, avocado, macadamia, sea buckthorn, cotton, sunflower, açaí, camellia and argan.  These oils and extracts will help moisturize, condition and protect your hair from stress and damage, as they are rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and beneficial properties.

The treatment comes in a 200 mL tube with a botanical print of leaves with crisp lettering.  Like the Cooling Shampoo, the design is simple, but very classy.  It has a lid that flips open, so it is easy to use.   The treatment is a light weight, creamy white product that has a light floral scent.  It isn’t unpleasant, however, with a name like Jungle Botanics Forest Leaves, I would have thought a herbal green scent would be more appropriate.  The directions state to apply this generously on your wet hair, which I did.

I didn’t feel any warming action at all.  In fact, I even tried this on dry hair, just to see if the warmth of the water disguised the mild warmth that this treatment was supposed to impart.  Nope, no warmth!  The first couple of times I used it, I kept it in my hair for a couple of minutes, like I would with any conditioner and I didn’t see any big difference with my hair.  In fact, I feel this didn’t even condition that well, as my hair felt dry and tangled.   Then I decided to use it as a treatment, and not a conditioner and that made all the difference.  I left it in my hair for 15 minutes (yeah, plan on taking a long shower..) and rinsed out.  My hair felt like it needed extra conditioning, as it was still tangled ~ I have a lot of very fine straight hair ~ but once I combed it out and then used my hair dryer to dry my hair, I was shocked how shiny and silky my hair became.   Normally, I don’t notice these things but I did pay attention while I was drying my hair and my hair looked more glossy and it was very silky.  

Since I don’t have 15 minutes normally to spend on my hair, I have used this product only a few times and that makes sense ~ it is not a daily treatment, as it does require a time commitment and it also requires a generous amount applied to my hair.  I would use this up very quickly and I have chin length hair!  I do like that it has salicylic acid in it, as that means it not only conditions, but helps remove excess dirt and oil that can be clogging up your hair follicles. 

Between the Cooling Shampoo and the Warming Treatment, I have to say I do prefer the Cooling Shampoo as it seems that it is more suited for my oily hair and it is quick to use.  The Warming Treatment is a good product, despite the fact I cannot feel any warming effects, but it does require time that I normally do not have in the morning, so it is more of a weekly treatment for me. If you don’t have time to do a hot oil hair treatment, this might be an attractive alternative for you.  I wouldn’t use this like a conditioner, as that would be wasteful ~ I have found you really do need to keep it in your hair for more than a few minutes and you wouldn’t get the benefits of this product in that time frame.  Have you tried this treatment yet?   If you have and you have dry/damaged/coarse hair, let me know how this worked for you, as I would be interested in your results.  Have you tried any of the Jungle Botanics products?  What did you think of them?
