Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner Review

I don't know about you but I never put any thought into my hair care products.  I colour my hair every 4 weeks and I buy whatever shampoo is on offer. I have very fine hair but lots of it, and although it is colour treated I didn't think it was in bad condition.  I have to wash my hair every day as I'm lucky enough to get a visit from the hair fairy every night so my hair resembles a burst mattress every morning.

When I was offered the chance to try some hair products from Green People I jumped at the chance.  I put a lot of time and effort into looking after my skin, I check the ingredients thoroughly before putting anything on my face and I thought it was about time I afforded some of this attention to detail to my hair.

I was sent the Coloured & Treated Kit to try.



What they say...... This natural duo helps to strengthen damaged hair and enhance shine.  These products do not contain SLS, SLES, Parabens, Artificial Perfumes, Phthalates and colourants.

The foaming agents in the shampoo come from corn and coconut.  Some of the other ingredients it contains are Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Pineapple extract, Rose Geranium, Sandalwood, Lavender and Orange.

The main conditioning agent in the conditioner is Jojoba Oil, it also contains seed extract from Mandarin, Bergamot and Sweet Orange.

What I say......The shampoo is clear and I could immediately smell the Geranium.  I was very surprised at how well this shampoo lathered, once rinsed my hair felt very strange, I then realised that in the absence of silicone and the usual chemicals in shampoo this is how my hair should feel.  The conditioner is a lovely lightweight lotion and again I could really smell the Geranium, this conditioner combed through my hair like a dream and rinsed away easily.

Once dried my hair had a lovely shine to it and I could smell the Geranium all day.  I used these products daily for 4 days and my hair just kept getting better and better.

 Then on the morning of day 5 a miracle occurred, I kid you not.  I got up and went into the bathroom with then intention of doing my daily wash, I looked in the mirror and was amazed, my hair looked the same as it did when I went to bed!  I was not sporting the burst mattress look, my hair was smooth, shiny, no greasiness, no static, no sticky up bits, I could not believe it, a quick run over my fringe with the GHD's and I was good to go.  I though that this might be a one off and that I'd just had a good night where I hadn't moved once in my sleep.  But I'm happy to report that since using these products I now wash my hair every other day and have even left it until day 3 if I'm not working.

I can't tell you how delighted I am with these products, I never thought that changing to Organic hair care products would have such an impact on my hair.
