I can't believe that this has only 2 stars at time of writing. I think it is great! I usually use Bumble and Bumble Deeep treatment, but recently (recession and all) I have been trying to cut back on spending and thought I would try a sachet of this from Boots. Well, after trying, I ended up buying the (very large) tub! It doesn't leave your hair heavy or greasy, just nice and healthy looking. Others have commented negatively on the smell, but I like it! I love that it is 97% natural, and it is therefore a natural smell - in a good way! I dont find it too strong and I sneeze at a mere whiff of perfume. The tub is super generous for £7.82, so don't be tempted to stick your whole hand in and use too much. It is quite thick, and white in colour. I never put conditioner right up to my roots, just along the length of my hair. The good thing about this is you only need to leave it on 3-5 mins, so you can have your shower, shave your legs or whatever and then rinse it off. Boots have recently done 3 for 2 on this, and I love a couple of Naked's other products, so it is a great chance to stock up when they do these offers. You can also use your Boots points to buy it totally free!
I like this one.... but it does smell funny... i'd describe it as a potato like smell!!! But it works gorgeously in my hair!! Worth the money i think personally
A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a new deep conditioning treatment and bought two sachets to try from the Naked ranged. I used the Repair and Renew treatment first and absolutely loved it, so couldn't wait to try the second sachet I'd bough, which was the Naked Boost, Nourishing Vitamins treatment.
~About the product~
Naked products are 97% natural and contain no Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Parabens or Petrochemicals. I have no idea what any of those three are, but I frequently see them listed as ingredients in beauty products I buy.
The Naked Vitamin Boost treatment uses naturally derived vitamin and plant extracts which leave no build up on the hair. This contains ethically sourced Marula, which (apparently!) is a penetrating and nourishing oil which comes from the Marula fruit. Personally I have never heard of a Marula fruit, but apparently it is a great source of Vitamin E, which when put together with Provitamin B5 and Provitamin A, which this also contains, it's great for hair.
I bought a sachet of this, which contains 20ml of the product, enough for one use - possibly more if you have very short hair. The sachet is silver and shiny with green writing and has a notch on one side, to make opening it easy. You can also buy this in a 400ml tub, which you can see pictured.
The treatment is white in colour and thick like a cream. The sachet suggests that for best results you should comb this through your hair, but like last time, I forgot to bring a comb into the bathroom with me, so I just combed it through with my fingers.
One thing I was surprised about was the smell of this product. The previous one I used smelled quite nice, but this one was awful! It was a very strong scent, hard to describe, but it was so horrible it was giving me a headache! The only thing I can think of to compare it to is those hair dyes you get with the fruit oils in them. It was similar to that, but stronger.
The pack suggests leaving on for 3-5 minutes, I wasn't timing it, but like I said the smell of it was actually making me feel ill (Seriously, I'm not just being dramatic here!), so I had to wash it off. I'm not quite sure if I made the full 3 minutes or not!
My hair did feel nice and soft the next day, and was easy to style. It didn't feel as silky as it had done when I used the Repair and Renew treatment, but still I noticed a bit of an improvement. Appearance wise it looked quite shiny too.
The horrible smell didn't stay on my hair luckily, or I might have been popping the paracetamol all through the next day!
The sachets cost £1.25 from Boots and are 20ml. If you want the full 400ml tub it will set you back £7.99.
Just because of the awful, strong smell of this product, I will not be buying it again. I am surprised (as well as a bit disappointed), that it was so different to the previous one I had used. I did notice a slight improvement to my hair after use, but it was nothing like the improvement I saw last time. I'm glad I only bought a sachet of this stuff and not the whole tub.
