Recently, I was contacted by the lovely ladies at Faith In Nature and they asked me if I would like to try one of their shampoo and conditioner ranges. Faith In Nature do exactly that; they put their faith into nature. They use natural ingredients to make a range of products including body care and skin care. I much prefer using 'green' haircare and I definitely notice a massive difference after repeated use.
Born in Edinburgh 40 years ago, Faith In Nature believe in doing good for their customers, doing good in the way they run their business and doing good for the planet. Also, they are passionate about keeping their prices affordable so everyone can benefit from what the Earth provides. Not only do Faith In Nature use natural ingredients, their products are organic, cruetly free and vegan which is fantastic news! Currently based in Lancashire, Faith In Nature try to keep everything British; they manufacture in Britain and where possible, try to source products from the UK. If this is not possible, they aim to use ethically sourced, fairly traded produce.
As my hair is dry and damaged, I decided to give the coconut range a try which is designed for normal to dry hair. Faith In Nature doesn't just use plants in their products because they smell nice; they believe that each plant has powers and healing qualities. For example, coconut oil inhibits the loss of skin moisture making skin smoother (this would work in exactly the same way with your hair). As the products are natural with no added nasties, they don't have a long shelf life; six months in fact. In my opinion, that's plenty of time for a shampoo and conditioner. I'm not sure mine would last that long anyway!
From the very first wash, I was impressed! The shampoo lathers up perfectly (I've tried other natural shampoos which don't) and after washing my hair twice (it was greasy) my hair was very clean. My hair didn't feel squeaky clean, it never should, but my hands did a little bit. The coconut scent is delicious! I can close my eyes and pretend I'm on a Caribbean beach washing my hair under a waterfall! The conditioner seems quite runny but I don't know if that's because I'm used to ones which are full of chemicals. You just have to be careful that you don't loose any! The directions suggest leaving it on for 5 minutes, which I do. Afterwards, my hair feels super soft and is a lot easier to comb than usual.
The result is that I recommend Faith In Nature Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner. Who doesn't want a shampoo which cleans and conditioner which conditions while being environmentally friendly and hair friendly?
Do you prefer using 'greener' haircare? Have you tried Faith In Nature?
