Having tried out a few different vegan option shampoos – I was finding it tricky to find a good quality one that was doing my hair good. I had tried some high street brands and some more natural alternatives. I found some of them very drying on my already thin hair. Maria Nila was recommended on a group page – and people were raving about it so I had to give it a go.
This amazing creation comes from Sweden and has been in business for 30 years.
I found Maria Nila’s shampoo and conditioner combo to be extremely nourishing. Not only is it 100% vegan, it is free from sulphates and parabens and has repairing algae – how clever is that? It also acts as a colour guard complex.
Although Maria Nila is slightly pricey compared to high street brands, it is still affordable and definitely worth paying that bit extra in order to give your hair the love it deserves. I paid £30.95 including postage and packaging – and it arrived fairly quick. I hear you can also find it in some salons in the UK.
This is the structure repair one which I felt would do good after a year of highlighted hair. Originally I was thinking I need to sort out my hair and maintain it for my upcoming wedding – which we have now postponed because of little baby bubba due – roll on lush pregnancy hair!
I have since made a decision that Maria Nila will be a staple product for my hair. It is that good!
I’ve had complements on how nice it smells. I can honestly say the conditioner is one of the best I’ve used. A small blob leaves your hair so silky and the easiest to brush. Especially if you’ve got thin hair, also that tangles easily, but equally I’m sure would work great in other hair types. It certainly leaves no feeling of greasiness which some conditioners do.
I’ve been swimming almost everyday while on holidays – seawater and swimming pool and honestly do not feel my hair condition has been compromised. It lasts a good while also – with my first lot still going about 2 months strong now.
Overall – I found Maria Nila to keep my hair in great condition. I no longer have those fly away hairs noticeable with highlighted hair (although I have since gone darker). It’s been nourishing, leaving my hair strong, soft and healthy.
Next time I’m going to give the pure volume set a go and am already excited. They also have a range of colour refresh products that have great reviews.
