Firstly, the range is briliantly priced, all the shampoos and conditioners are £4.99 and the treatments and styling range products are all £5.99.
The range caters to most hair types, dry, frizzy, oily, fine and normal, as well the products I was sent for Dry, Undernourished hair, which mine is. I must just add that some of the other products I didn't try sound delicious, Pomegranite and Orange Flower (for Normal hair) and Fig and Plum (for Frizzy Hair) sound especially delicious!
The Dry Undernourished range is Jasmine based and it's fortunate I absolutely LOVE Jasmine, I do know there are many who don't though, but for me it was shower time bliss scent wise. The Shampoo is Jasmine and Wild Nettle and the conditioner is Jasmine, Wild Nettle and Sweet Almond. Yum.
Sadly the shampoo and conditioner didn't work for me. I don't know if it wasn't the right product, but it left my hair pretty frizzy, usually its SLS free products that do this to my hair but this has SLS so I'm not sure what was going on. I have however forced myself to carry on using them up because I just adore the scent. I have just been managing the frizz after using other products. Which leads me nearly onto the other two products I was sent to try.
Firstly the "Leave Me in Conditioner and Styling Creme" a dual purpose product that does what it says on the tin. Again, sadly as a conditioner this did nothing for me but again this smelled out of this world, this time Wild Ginger and Green Tea. I had to stop using it as a conditioner on my damp hair BUT I have had a lot of use from it as a between-washes product to pep up my hair. I can scrunch a dab of it in and it gives me a great tousled but not at all greasy style, beach hair! Really like this and actually given it's amazing scent I can see me finishing the bottle no problems!
The final product I was sent was the Weather Protect Dew Drops Serum. Jojoba and Vitamin E are the active ingredients that help to smooth out your hair and this works a treat and is a nice product thats helped me control the unfortunate frizz!
So all in all a mixed review for me, I'm hesitant to write off the shampoo and conditioner because obviously it's just how it worked o my hair and it may well work brilliantly for someone else, but the scent, the scent is amazing. Same goes for the leave in conditioner, as a conditioner it's no good for me at all, but to pep up my hair between washes it does a fab job and again smells amazing, and the serum, well its a bog standard serum really, but it works really well.
Well worth checking out, and of course lets not forget the purse friendly prices!
