I am certain each one of you has their own “golden find” among cosmetic products. For me, it is Green Shampoo and Green Conditioner from Tołpa.

It claims to rebuild damaged parts of the protective layer of hair, lowers a susceptibility to mechanical damage and breaking.
My personal opinion and how the product worked for me
I have used only one bottle of each product, but I fell in love with them immediately. I have fine sometimes dry with susceptibility to split ends hair. After using this combo the look of my hair drastically improved. Now, I love to touch my hair all the time, they became super soft and bouncy. I have always had a problem with frizzy hair. Not anymore! My hair is smooth and easy to style. And the smell! OMG! Both products are the best smelling hair products I have ever used! They smell very fresh but flowery. It reminds me a smell if a fresh spring. The only thing I dislike about these products is their packaging. Both are pretty hard which makes it difficult to use the product until the end. Plus, the brand is only available in Poland. In the beginning, if 2018, I have contacted Tołpa to ask about their delivery to other European countries. Apparently, they are working in it. I hope they work fast because I miss the Green Shampoo and Green Conditioner and cannot find any replacement that would work at least similar to these products.
