Over the past few months I have totally rejigged the types of qualities I look for in the skin care and hair care products I use. I am far more health conscious than I ever used to be and I think I'm right in saying (please correct me if I'm wrong) i've noticed that recently the beauty industry seems to be more aware of what ingredients go into what products too. Being a science student I have the opportunity to research and read about the impacts of many different types of lotions and potions on nature. I have started to take more of a mindful approach, taking the time to think about the types of products that I come into contact with. Now,I'm no angel...and sadly I'm not a total convert as I love so many products that unfortunately aren't 100% pure/natural/healthy etc, but I try my best when I can.
In my view everyday hair care is one of the most important steps in my hygiene routine to which I really try hard to find a natural option. The frequency and how much your body comes into contact with shampoo and conditioner make it quite a high priority of mine. I have been using sulfate free, paraben free, natural hair care for a while now and to be totally honest with you....I've been struggling to find something as good as the products I used before. Its a big challenge to find natural shampoo that leaves your hair feeling clean without being too stripping, as well as one that nourishes and lathers well.
I was fortunate enough to have the chance to try out two hair products from the Naked line: the Naked rescue sweet almond and sunflower intensive care shampoo and the Naked rescue shea butter and olive intensive care conditioner, both designed for frizzy, damaged hair.
As a brand Naked ticks all the boxes,
- No nasty sulfates - check
- No pesky parabens - check
- Natural ingredients - check
- Does not test on animals - check
- Lathers well - check
- Smells amazing - check
- Leaves my hair feeling nourishing - check
- Affordable - check
- Accessible - check
And the list could go on and on!
Both the shampoo and conditioner in the Naked Rescue Intensive Repair line are specifically designed to restore heat distressed and dry hair. The key ingredients: shea nut butter ,olive oil and brassicacae oil extracts work together to repair and improve the appearance of split, damaged and frizzy hair. The duo are formulated and packed full of natural conditioning elements that aid in rejuvenating weakened hair without any nasty petrochemical residue build up.
The shampoo is gentle on both the hair and scalp and cleanses without stripping the natural oils from the hair so its perfect for both coloured or non coloured locks. My thing about the shampoo is the scent, is unbelievable: sweet almond and favourite sunflower, so much so I even look forward to washing my hair!
As for the conditioner, it's thick and luscious similar to that of an intensive mask. Don't worry though its in no way heavy and doesn't weighing my hair down. After washing the nourishing conditioner out of my hair it feels moisturized without leaving any unwanted residue.
Also for even more eco friendly points the packaging has been carefully designed from 50% recyclable materials. The shampoo bottle has a cleaver little spout; with one push of a button it allows you to open and close the bottle with no mess and making it easy to use whilst wet. No more slippery accidents now!
I'm thoroughly impressed with Naked and can't wait to try out more of their line! Have you tried any products from Naked? What would you recommend?
