Disclosure: I received the products mentioned to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are my own.
Finding natural hair care products can be REALLY difficult! In fact, I would say it’s been one of my biggest challenges since I became more ingredient conscious over the past few years. Many products will tout “natural” or even “organic” on the bottles when they only have one or two natural or organic ingredients, and the rest of the ingredients are not only synthetic but harmful as well. It can be very misleading – particularly if you are new to the eco-friendly journey and don’t yet recognize harmful ingredients by their various names.
NATU Hair Care offers natural hair care with no gimmicks. They contain no harsh ingredients and are upfront about their ingredients. In fact, you can see their ingredient list on their website, and they even send a booklet with the products so you can learn more about them as well! They break down the ingredients that are listed as their scientific names to what is easier for us to understand.
You can be sure NATU products don’t contain these harmful ingredients:
- No Sulfates
- No Silicones
- No Parabens
- No Resins
- No Phthalates
- No Petrolatum
- No Ethoxylates
- No Artificial Colors
- No Artificial Fragrances
- No Animal Products
For my review I received the Professional Colorist Shampoo and Conditioner and the Silkening Mist. I do color my hair (although I’m much overdue for a touchup!), and my hair is coarse and VERY thick. The Silkening Mist is used to smooth out thick, coarse hair.
The first thing I noticed upon using the Shampoo and Conditioner was the scent. It was natural! One of the tricky ingredients that is often in most “natural” hair care products is synthetic fragrances. I recognized right away that they use lavender, which happens to be my favorite scent! When using the Professional Colorist Shampoo it is recommended to leave it sit in your hair for 1 minute before rinsing. Because it doesn’t contain harmful sulfates, the lather is a little different than what you may be used to. I suggest first rubbing it together in your hands before applying it to your hair. I found I didn’t need to use very much!
After rinsing out I use the Professional Colorist Conditioner and leave it sit in my hair for 2 minutes before rinsing. I found that the first couple of times I used too much, and my hair felt a little greasy, but when I used less and made sure to rinse thoroughly I had much better results. Plus my hair does tend to dry up throughout the day, so I noticed a difference in how soft my hair was!
After towel drying my hair I finished with the Silkening Mist. What a beauty! This really does make my coarse hair look so much smoother! Usually I have fly-aways everywhere, and it looks wavy and frizzy. I’m much happier with my smooth pony tail!
Overall, I’m really happy with the NATU hair care products. I would definitely recommend using them as a set as intended. They can be purchased individually or as a set on the NATU Website. I appreciate that they are up front about their ingredients and explain them all in detail. I also appreciated that they put the natural percentage on each bottle. They don’t try to hide anything! I feel good knowing they keep harmful ingredients out!
