Escentual sent me some Klorane Nettle shampoo to review and in the package came some cleansers and samples too.
Klorane Nettle Shampoo is suitable for Oily Hair. It gives your hair a detox and is deeply cleansing to stop oiliness. It is very gentle shampoo that works by trying to regularise the amount of oil that your scalp produces and also stops the oil down in spreading through the hair length.
This Klorane shampoo contains scopoletine, an extract from nettle, which restores balance to the scalp. It is hypoallergenic and extremely mild on the scalp.
I suffer with very oily hair, to the point where I need to wash it daily otherwise it looks horrible and greasy. That is why I wanted to give the Klorane Nettle Shampoo a try. I applied it, as I do regular shampoo, to wet hair, massaged it in, and then rinsed it away thoroughly. I found that it didn't go very foamy but did feel as though it was cleaning my hair and scalp. I followed it with my usual conditioner and then dried it afterwards.
I noticed that the Nettle Shampoo enhanced the volume of my hair, making it poof out a little more than usual. It felt soft, bouncy and nice.
At first, I didn't notice much difference. My hair was still fairly oily at the end of the day and I assumed that maybe, this product wasn't compatible with me. But then it changed. After constantly using it for a week or so, I noticed that my hair wasn't getting oily so fast. I think that it takes a bit of sustained use for the shampoo to kick in fully and then the oil secretion is regularised, enabling you to wash your hair less frequently.
Yes, it is green and it doesn't particularly smell that great, but it works and once rinsed off, the scent goes away any way so I don't mind.
I also received 2 cleansers in my package. Avene Cream Cleanser and Bioderma. I have heard so much about Bioderma that I couldn't wait to give it a try but it was, in fact, the Avene Cream Cleanser which I preferred. It just made my skin feel so soft after use and I am now glad that I got to try it out.
You can buy the Klorane Nettle Shampoo and the other items on the Escentual website.
