Quinoa Shampoo and Amaranth Conditioner by Davies Gate
Post a Comment | View Comments (3)

Milk with Amaranth (kiwicha) powder to drink before going to school was a must when I was in elementary and middle school. This instant dissolving grain came in a very simple transparent plastic jar with a artisanal label with a different flavors like chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. My mom said that its nutritional value were enormous but not very known outside my country. I felt a bit confused, but realized that this product was similar but different from the “Milo” I also had for breakfast. I understood Milo was more popular because it came in a “fancier” tin can.

In a recent hotel stay I discovered to my happy surprise that the shampoo and complimentary conditioners were name and ingredient inspired by this Peruvian grains. I thought, finally this great grains have seen the light. As you know Quinoa is also a magnificent food. Many people in the US make it instead of rice, for its nutritional value and light consistency.

So my confusion and a bit of sadness were gone because now the world also knows Quinoa and Amaranth. You can find this great shampoo and conditioners at the manufacturers website. Great job Davies Gate for Quinoa Shampoo and Amaranth Conditioner.

When I first used Davie's Gate Quinoa Shampoo at a hotel, I really liked it. Of course, those sample bottles are quite small and disappear very quickly.

Unfortunately, the bottle I bought from Davie's website developed a bitter/fermented smell about 5 weeks after opening.

I contacted the site; they did offer to extend the 30-day refund, and said their QC deparatment checked the batch my bottle came from, and that it met their specs. I decided it was not worth paying to ship it back, so just tossed it.

Since the bottle did not stay fresh even half-way through, I will not buy another one and will just stick to enjoying the hotel samples next time I travel.

Interestingly, I am unable to amend or remove my initial review of this shampoo on Davie's Gate site. Their "customer care" staff no longer responds to emails concerning this.

In my opinion, if you stand by your product you would welcome reviews containing both the positive and the negative.

So word to the wise: Be careful about posting a "song of praise" too soon; if you do, you will not be allowed to edit or remove your review later, and the Davie's Gate site will block any attempt to post an additional review. They will also stop answering emails.
