Naked Intensive Care Shampoo & Conditioner

January 25, 2011

Naked’s Intensive Care Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated for dry, frizzy hair.

“Using plant based conditioning ingredients, this effective formulation throws a lifeline to weakened hair without petrochemical residue build up”.

I ended up buying this shampoo when I popped into Boots in a rush. I wanted something as natural as possible and Naked was the only natural hair care range on sale. At £3.99 a bottle (2 for £6 on offer) I decided to give them a go. I have to admit that the price lowered my expectations of these products a little as natural hair care products double this price had left me disappointed. But I was pleasantly surprised!

The Intensive products smell quite sweet and heavy in the bottles. Once they have been applied to hair and rinsed away there is just enough scent to leave your hair smelling fresh. So if you sniff the product in the bottle and find the smell a bit overpowering, don’t be put off.

The shampoo lathered up really well for a natural shampoo. It wasn’t overly foamy and rinsed out very easily.

I’ve been really pleased with these products. The conditioner does a fantastic job at taking the frizz out of my curly hair. Once I’d used the shampoo and conditioner together for a while, my hair started to feel a bit greasy. I think this was because both products contain natural oils and butters to nourish hair. Every so often I used a different shampoo to remove any build up and give my hair a bit of a detox. I think using the Balancing Shampoo with the Intensive Care Conditioner would be a good combination of products to remove oils but still nourish hair.

I like the fact these products are made in the UK. So for UK based customers, it’s a good way of buying products with fewer travel miles.

The shampoo and conditionerare only £4.19 each and Naked have a varied range of products for different hair types. This product offers a good balance between quality (97% natural) and cost. This range isn’t 100% natural so you’ll find ingredients like urea in a few products. But this is a good compromise. I’ve just used up my bottle of Intensive Conditioner and have just bought another conditioner in the range.
