“ Brand: Natures Organics / Type: Hair Shampoo „
Shopper's appeal I found this shampoo at a pound-shop. I always like to go to these shops because they have an interesting mix of beauty brands I didn't know before, but they also sell popular brands at discount prices. The Wild Berry shampoo bei Natures Organics caught my eye because of it's interesting bottle. I expected a luscious berry scent and good care for my hair, so I really wanted to try it on. I didn't open the bottle in the shop and smell it like I usually do, which I now regret! The bottle The bottle is quite big and contains 500ml of slightly pink but rather clear shampoo. The bottle is made of plastic and is pink all over, adorned with pictures of raspberries and strawberries. On the side of the bottle, the packaging is left clear from labels so you can see the shampoo. The variety is called "wild berry" and is supposed to be perfect for the whole family. It says it will provide help for fine and limp here. On the back of the bottle, there are further explantation on why the product is supposed to be so good. It contains plant extracts, whey protein and fruit extracts which are supposed to make your hair like more alive and shiny. The shampoo was made without animal testing. I think the packaging is quite nice although I find it about confusing that there are so many words on the bottle. I can't even really figure out whether the shampoo's name is "wild berry" or "Hair spa". My experiences The texture The shampoo's texture is a little gooey, but it turned out to be easy to spread. It foams up very nicely! It's clear, but slightly pink-tinted. The scent I was quite disappointed of the scent. I expected it to smell like, well, wild berries, but the scent turned to be really weak and quite soapy. Nothing like my beloved Alberto Balsam shampoos! Effect on hair This shampoo didn't work well with my hair. I don't have too fine hair, but it sometimes is a little limp, so I was hoping the shampoo would help. Sadly, it turned out to be a total de-moisturizer. My hair felt very dry after washing it with the product and it was nowhere near soft and shiny. I guess this shampoo is only for people who have close to no hair which is greasy at the same time. I needed to use a rich conditioner afterwards so my hair wouldn't feel like straw. I can't agree with the label on the bottle which said this shampoo is suitable for the whole family. It defenitely wouldn't be good for the fine hair of children. How long does it last? The bottle will last you fairly long as it's quite big and you don't need too much shampoo, even for long hair. Hair's reaction I didn't have any allergic reactions on my scalp and my hair was okay again after plenty of conditioner, so it hasn't done any harm to me.

The price I bought this at a poundshop and it was just a pound, so I'm not too upset. ;) Conclusion I didn't like this shampoo and won't be buying it again. My hair felt very dry and the scent wasn't nice either and I don't agree with the writing on the bottle that says you can use this for children as well. It takes away too much moisture from your hair! I'd only recommend this to people who have really, really fine and greasy hair. Otherwise, this won't make you happy! I'm still rating it three stars because I suppose there are some people out there who it could be useful to if their hair is thin and greasy and it didn't do any long term harm to me. but I wouldn't recommend it.
