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?
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.
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!
