Hey! Today I have another hair post for you, Joanna Naturia, conditioners and hair shampoos. The time has come for a new section on my blog – forgotten classics, i.e. cosmetics that I tested some time ago. Some of them are no longer available on the market, some have been forgotten, but maybe it’s worth remembering about them.
My sister always brought me a few bottles of these cheap and beautifully smelling shampoos, and the conditioners were always in her bathroom as well. I got infected and bought these shampoos as shower gels and rypacz detergent shampoos to thoroughly cleanse my hair once in a while. I especially loved the levende and coconut. However, the conditioner was used for me as a typical “something after washing” and everyone complained that they are thin and runny, they do nothing to the hair. But in the end they were cheap. In those days, unfortunately, we didn’t know how to deal with your hair. However, I quickly got hooked on hair maniacs and after reading many reviews on hair and curly-haired blogs, I ran to buy these conditioners – Joanna with honey and lemon, as well as with poppy seeds and cotton. They were supposed to be great as a leave-in conditioner after washing my hair, which is what I lacked in hair care. If you are interested in how they worked for me, I invite you to the rest of the post.
Joanna Naturia, Conditioner with honey and lemon for dry and damaged hair
The conditioner is intended for the care of dry and damaged hair. A carefully selected composition of natural, nourishing honey and lemon, rich in vitamins, mineral salts and fruit acids, provides the hair with a healthy and well-groomed appearance. The conditioner perfectly moisturizes, smoothes the hair and gives it bounce, making it easier to comb and style, shiny, soft and delicate to the touch.
The beneficial combination of honey and lemon was already known to our grandmothers, who eagerly used them to strengthen, deeply moisturize and nourish dry and damaged hair. Today, the same wonderful care properties can be found in the Joanna Naturia conditioner formula with honey and lemon.
How to use: Apply a portion of the conditioner on washed and towel-dried hair. Massage in gently and rinse after a few minutes with lukewarm water. Complete the care with Joanna Naturia shampoo for dry and damaged hair.

The time has come for a new section on my blog – forgotten classics, i.e. cosmetics that I tested some time ago. This type of product are Joanna Naturia conditioners and shampoos, which used to dominate almost every drugstore and kiosk, were also very cheap – about PLN 3-4 per bottle.
I do not know if these conditioners are still available anywhere – although the mini ones are on offer from Rossmann and small, local drugstores, and on the manufacturer’s website, selected products have new packaging, but I have not seen them anywhere for a long time – except online drugstores.
My sister always brought me a few bottles of these cheap and beautifully smelling shampoos, and the conditioners were always in her bathroom as well. I got infected and bought these shampoos as shower gels and rypacz detergent shampoos to thoroughly cleanse my hair once in a while. I especially loved the levende and coconut. However, the conditioner was used for me as a typical “something after washing” and everyone complained that they are thin and runny, they do not do anything with the hair, and the claws smell beautiful, but they tangle the hair – it is difficult to tame and comb it afterwards. But in the end they were cheap. In those days, unfortunately, we didn’t know how to deal with your hair. Conditioner was used as the typical “wash-up” condition, and everyone complained.
Each Joanna Naturia conditioner has a light and extremely thin consistency with a whitish color and a neutral smell – pleasant, but rather chemical, not sweet. It spreads quite well, but be careful not to let it fall between your fingers.
I remember one day I was sitting in a chair at the hairdresser’s and she couldn’t brush my hair before cutting it – it was dry, hay and tangled. I shyly explained that it might be from henna, but I strongly suspect it was from inappropriate and unconscious care. After all, I was taking my first steps in hair maniacs, those were the old days and there was neither a large selection of cosmetics on the Polish market, nor knowledge about it.
However, I quickly got hooked on hair maniacs and after reading many reviews on hair and curly-haired blogs, I ran to buy these very conditioners – especially I remember two used Joanna Naturia bottles with honey and lemon and one with poppy seeds and cotton . They were supposed to be great as a leave-in conditioner after washing your hair and under the styler, which is what I missed in care.
I did that too, unfortunately without realizing that shampoos are such rattlers and the alcohol contained in the conditioners can dry my hair so much. Of course, this is my fault, not the cosmetic, because when used properly and sparingly, it worked wonders on my friends’ curls on healthy hair. Fortunately, a moment later I abandoned these cheap cosmetics, discovered Russian and Kallosy cosmetics, and my care developed in an unbelievable way towards natural and organic cosmetics.
Today I think that they were not bad cosmetics at all and they worked well for many people. They would be good conditioners for emulsifying and washing the scalp, but I would still be a bit afraid of drying out from alcohol – similar Balea conditioners with DM worked for me. However, I will definitely test them again after many years, if I meet again. The price is definitely an advantage, because it was (once) about 5-6 zlotys. It can also work as an addition to DIY homemade masks. And if you are not afraid of alcohol in a washing and emulsifying conditioner – I recommend these cheap ones.
Do you know these classics from the beginnings of hair maniacs?
