Beauty On A Budget: The Poundland OGX Dupe!

Hey everyone!

I’m temporarily putting the consistent Christmas posts on hold to give my report on these hair products I recently found in Poundland. “Poundland!?” you say, bear with me here. As I said in my recent Beauty On A Budget post, I thought it’d be good to get a few of these in before Christmas as it could inspire some cheap and cheerful gifts! We all sadly can’t afford to splurge on our loved ones, as much as we’d really love to.

The brand is called “Nutrafix” and these caught my eye originally as the packaging reminded me of the OGX hair products. I then saw “almond oil” and combined with the scent, I just HAD to pick them up as I’m a sucker for anything almond. I think it’s such a sweet and gorgeous smell and almond oil is a super nourishing ingredient. For £1 each and being from Poundland, I was a bit skeptical. They seemed to be low on stock though which can only be a good sign, right!?

So the real question is… what did I think?

Shampoo

The shampoo smells the strongest out of the two and I adore it. The consistency is perfect and it foams up really nicely and goes quite a long way so there’s no need to use a lot. It cleanses the hair really well and doesn’t leave it knotty and dry like a lot of cheaper shampoos tend to do. And as someone with dry and bleached hair, I know the feeling too well! I’d definitely pay much more for this product.

Conditioner

Conditioners can be a bit of a problem for me sometimes. Due to my dry hair I need something deeply nourishing but not something that’s going to make my hair feel heavy and greasy. I’ve got to say I’m actually really damn impressed with this product. I was so skeptical as the formula of it is pretty thin but it actually makes your hair feel so soft and silky. It makes it super easy to get a brush through your hair afterwards and as the formula is a little thinner, it spreads out really nicely through the hair without clumping so you don’t overuse it. This is well worth the money and I’d definitely recommend it!

The only thing I was a little disappointed about with these products is that you can’t smell the almond after washing them out of your hair. I love my hair to have a nice smell to it but this doesn’t seem to leave anything behind at all! But really it’s a small problem as the effect of the products is so impressive for the price.

I absolutely adore OGX products but I just can’t justify the price a lot of the time unfortunately so these are a fabulous alternative. They also have quite a few others in their range such as coconut milk, jojoba oil, argan oil, caffeine and keratin oil so if the almond oil doesn’t sound like your cup of tea there are plenty of other options! They’d be perfect in a little beauty hamper or as a gift for someone who likes treating their hair. I cannot wait to pick up the others from the range and try them out as I’m sure they’re just as luxurious, I think argan oil is next on my list!

What are your holy grail budget hair products?

’Til next time,
BTB Xx

    I have seen these so many time but was a little sceptical. I might need to try this set though – Almond isn’t one of my favourite scents so I am glad it doesn’t stay in your hair! Just like you, my hair is super dry because of bleaching, so tis conditioner sounds perfect for me – at just £1!! xo

      They’re such a lovely pair of products, I’m so happy I tried them as I really want to stock up now! X

    I hardly shop in Poundland now since moving to Aylesbury. But then I’ve tried staying with what I know as I’m on a massive budget cut at the moment for things. But I’m definitely going to start shopping in Poundland, these are incredible and I love how there’s only one bad point for a £1 shampoo/conditioner. I love the sound of this one as well as coconut oil. Great lovely, thank youu for this post! Definitely going to keep reading your beauty on a budget posts!

    Ooh fab find, shame the scent doesn’t last! I really like any hair product that is silicone free as my hair just prefers it that way x

    1. Lily says:

      Oh and sulfate free, forgot my hair doesn’t love that either haha x

      1. blacktulipbeauty says:

        I am honestly to pleased with the results of them! SO good for the price x

  4. Heather says:

      They are so worth it for only £1! X

  5. Emma-Louise says:

    Ah wow, these sound fantastic! And I do love a bargain as well. I have a similar problem to you with conditioners so this sounds like one I could get on board with – definitely worth a shot for that price anyway! X

    1. blacktulipbeauty says:

      Yeah 100%! I was sceptical but for only £1 it’s so worth trying it out X

  6. Chloe says:

    These sound like awesome dupes for the OGX shampoo and conditioners; and for just £1, you really can’t go wrong! It’s a shame that the scent doesn’t last once you’ve washed it out but I’m glad that you liked them despite that! xx

      They really are! Yeah it’s honestly such a small problem when they have such a lovely effect on the hair xx

    I actually thought this was the OGX line at first, almond sounds incredible!! It’s so good to find cheap products that work. My favorite have to be the Not Your Mother’s lineup – they’re cruelty free and sulfate free so they’re perfect to me 🙂 and they smell incredible!

    1. blacktulipbeauty says:

      They look so similar it’s mad! I know, especially for £1 it’s SO cheap! I’ve never heard of them but I’ll definitely have a look now! X

  8. Sophie says:

    Wow! I will definitely be trying these. OGX have been my go-to shampoo brand for about two years now! It would be absolutely amazing to find a cheaper alternative x

      They are such a gorgeous brand just a bit out of my budget as I wash my hair so much x

  9. I would have had to pick these up at a £1! Its a shame your hair doesnt small afterwards though as that is something I look for in a hair product!

    thanks for sharing!

      They are SO worth the £1 despite the smell disappointment! X

  10. Alice says:

    I tried the coconut OGX shampoo and conditioner and I really didn’t like them! But maybe there’s better ones for my hair, it just seemed to make it super oily. These sound pretty fab though, although I do agree I’d prefer if the scent lingered around in your hair afterwards x

  11. Hannah says:

    I’ve never seen these before, but they look so similar to the OGX ones! You really can’t go wrong with these, especially for £1. I definitely need to go on the hunt for these xx

      I know it’s mad! They are honestly so worth it, such a bargain find! Xx

  12. Ooh these sound fab and they’re soo cheap!? I loove the sound of the Almond Oil, but it is a shame that the scent doesn’t last long on your hair as I love my hair to smell like shampoo for at least a day after use. The Coconut Milk and Argan Oil offerings sound perfect as well xo

  15. Chloe says:

    Hi, what a great little find, shame about the scent but worth giving it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    1. blacktulipbeauty says:

      The lack of scent stay is only a small inconvenience!

  16. sara says:

  18. Bexa says:

    Oh my, I didn’t know you could get OGX products in Pound Land! I’ve been paying full price at the supermarket for years 🙈. I’m currently using their argan oil shampoo which I really like. Lovely smell and hair feels nice afterwards. Would definitely recommend 💕. Okay, I’m defo taking a trip to Pound Land to stock up after reading your post Alice! Thanks for sharing this (and saving me money, he he) 😘 xx

    No way, how cool are these! It sounds great, too bad the smell doesn’t last too long but can’t have everything. It’s still so good! I tend to buy overpriced hair products but I really should start looking for them in Savers and Poundland because why not?
