Maria Nila Head & Hair Heal shampoo, conditioner & mask review


A while ago I wrote a whole post about the full styling range from Maria Nila, and I loved it so much that I've decided to give some more of their products a go.
If you want to know about the styling range (hairsprays, dry shampoos etc) then you can have a read of it here. But, today I wanted to write about my new favourite shampoo & conditioner duo - the Head & Hair Heal.


I've been talking about it on Instagram these past few weeks - I took out my hair extensions. That might not seem like a big deal but believe me, it is! I've had tape extensions in for around a year and a half, so I was long due a bit of a break from them. Although I love them because they never really pulled out any of my hair (like microrings did), having something stuck in it still causes stress on the roots.

SO the point of this story is, now that they're out, I really wanted to find a hair care range that would really get my hair and scalp back into a good condition. I had a little search and I saw a lot of Scandinavian bloggers recommending this collection from Maria Nila. If you haven't heard of the brand before, that's probably because it's still relatively small in the UK - but in Sweden, it's a favourite. 


Aside from having extremely photogenic packaging, the brand is also against animal testing/cruelty so it's registered with PETA, and everything is suitable for vegans as well. 

// About the range //

* Soothes itchy scalps
* Treats dandruff
* Prevents hairloss & increases hair growth
* Sulphate & paraben free
* Guards your coloured hair

I've been using the shampoo, conditioner and mask for around three weeks now, and I love them all. I didn't get off to a great start though because I didn't wash the conditioner out properly so I thought it was the formula causing a sticky residue - but I washed it again the next day (this time properly!) and it felt lovely. I don't think I've been using it long enough to see any difference in the speed of my hair growth, but I do honestly feel like the roots of my hair feel more full. Maybe that's a sign that it's getting to work - I hope so!

Another bonus is the smell of this range is amazing and leaves my hair with a peach scent (to match the peachy colour of the bottles). I know it's a little bit superficial but there's a lot to be said for pretty packaging and nice smells. The only SLIGHT downside that I've found from using these is that they take a little longer to wash out of my hair (especially the shampoo). This is probably because they don't have sulphates in (the soapy stuff that makes your hair feel squeaky clean), so when my hair is dry, it doesn't feel as clean as what I'm used to. But I know that sulphates over dry and strip my hair so using a formula that doesn't have them in really is best in the long run.

All-in-all, I'm so happy I found this range because it makes me feel like I'm actively doing something good to get my hair back into health - and if you're doing a similar Jan detox from hair extensions like me, then I'd say give 'em a go too! They cost about £25 each from their online shop here (I say about because the price is listed in Euros so it may be a little different on check-out).
