I’m writing this post from bed because it’s the best place to be on a Tuesday afternoon…
Natural World are a homegrown brand with their products being made in London’s Soho and without wanting to sound like a drawn out press release, they contain over 95% natural ingredients. I’d previously met the brand at the 2015 #BloggersFestival and this year’s #BigBloggerExpo goody bag and received one of their hair oils to try and have been using it ever since!
The past three weeks I have been trialling The Natural World Brazilian Keratin range which is suited to my moisture-ridden frizzball of what someone would call ‘hair’.
My hair texture has changed as I’ve become a slave the straighteners resulting in my roots being curly, the mid-section being wavy and the ends being straight. The only thing that has helped is regular Brazilian blowdrys to get my hair to one uniform texture and…
Implementing the Smoothing Therapy Hair Treatment Oil into my routine has done wonders for my hair, whether I choose to wear it curly or straight. It comes in a handy travel size 25ml bottle (perfect for cabin luggage) and is great for summer and winter holidays. I’d previously used this product when in NYC earlier this year to stop my hair drying out. I’d also used it in LA/Vegas to repair any damage from the sun. My only downfall with this product is sometimes I forget to completely close the lid so it leaked slightly in my bag (this is down to my clumsiness I’m sure!). But even if you don’t use the full range or Natural World products – this is a great one to implement into your routine as it can be used daily (a tiny drop), before or after blowdrying. Another way I liked using this is mixing with my conditioner, leaving overnight and washing out the next day. This made my hair SO soft. Best of all it’s free from: Parabens, Phosphates, Phthalates, Dyes and Gluten. You can find out more about the product here.
Depending on how I have my hair dictates my hair care routine, if it’s straight, I wash it once a week, but if it’s curly, it’s usually twice. This is because I didn’t spend two hours straightening it to wash it after 3 days and when it’s curly, it needs to be wet to style it.
The Smoothing Therapy Shampoo comes in a HUGE 500ml bottle and I can see this lasting me well in to 2017. I really like this shampoo as it left my hair feeling soft and nourished in comparison to other brands I have used which leave my hair feeling stripped (due to those pesky sulphates). I generally use a palm-sized amount of shampoo and lather, massage into my scalp and rinse twice before applying conditioner. This is because London is dirty, I’m forever on the tube and I like to think I go to the gym five times a week.
This used along with Smoothing Therapy Conditioner, which also comes in a huge 500ml left my hair feeling like everything it should be: soft, silky and manageable. I like to leave my conditioner in for 5-10 minutes, depending on how much free time I have! Occasionally I like to co-wash which means no shampoo, just conditioner. This is great for when my hair needs to hold a style as it gives you that perfect ‘second day hair’.
Overall, I really liked the Brazilian Keratin range and I can’t wait how my hair copes into the cold of Winter with these products. You may just see me in Boots raiding the shelves for the Smoothing Therapy Hair Treatment Oil.
Hair (grammatical error intended) are a few of my tips for this range:
- Weekly treatment as part of your hair care routine is great for dry, frizzy hair.
- Change up your hair care routine as the weather changes.
- Listen to your hair (Sounds stupid I know) – could it be the environment? or your diet? Anything else?
- Don’t be afraid to mix the oils together – e.g I use the coconut or argan oil for shine and the keratin oil for hydration.
- A little goes a long way unless you’re leaving the product in overnight.
- Mix with conditioner for soft and silky locks.
