Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Collection

I love Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Shampoo and Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Conditioner. They smell like heaven.

I'm not the only one who loves the Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk line; the shampoo and conditioner get great reviews online:

Organix Awakening Mocha Espresso Collection

I tried the Organix Mocha Espresso Shampoo and Conditioner. I wanted something to bring out the deep color in my hair. John Frieda brunette products contain coffee extracts, so I thought maybe the coffee stuff in the Organix Awakening Mocha Espresso line might have a similar effect... I'm not sure if it did or not, though a reviewer on Amazon said she got color-enhancing results.

Unfortunately, it felt like the shampoo cleaned my hair a bit too much. The conditioner was thick but not what I'd consider creamy, and it didn't seem to moisturize enough. Smelled like yummy coffee, but the Awakening Mocha Espresso products just didn't work for me.

Now, just because it didn't work for my hair doesn't mean it won't work for you. The Organix Awakening Mocha Espresso collection gets rave reviews elsewhere (including on Amazon.com):

Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk vs Awakening Mocha Espresso

Both shampoos and both conditioners contain almost exactly the same ingredients. The only difference is that the Vanilla Silk line contains Organic Vanilla Bean Oil whereas the Mocha Espresso line contains Espresso Bean Extract and Cocoa Bean Oils. I really don't understand why the two lines seem to have such different effects on my hair.

Has anyone else tried Organix products? How did they work out for you?
