Natural Essentials is a new haircare line formulated with naturally-sourced ingredients to address all your hair care needs using high quality exotic oils and extracts from around the world. Free of any sulfates, parabens, drying alcohol, phthalates, gluten and artificial colors, Natural Essentials hair care formulas rich in vitamins and antioxidants are designed to strengthen, heal and nourish hair – without any harsh chemicals.
I have been trying out the Natural essentials Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner and the Healing Dry Oil and must say these are a great bunch of natural & moisturizing sulfate-free (and budget-friendly!) haircare products suitable for all hair textures to keep your tresses nourished and healthy.
Starting with the shampoo & conditioner duo, these are a delightful tropical treat with their rich coconut, mango and acai blend! Even with its gentle, zero sulfate formula, the shampoo lathers up really well and leaves hair clean, soft and healthy-looking. As for the conditioner, it’s creamy yet lightweight and does a good job of smoothing and infusing moisture without weighing my hair down. And both of these are safe for color treated hair.
And now let’s talk about my favorite product from the line – Natural Essentials Healing Dry oil. With an exotic blend of Monoi, Dragonfruit and Camellia, this weightless dry oil has been designed to nourish dry to damaged hair that is brittle, dry and lifeless.
Here are a few interesting facts about the key ingredients :
Monoi : Derived from the petals of Tahitian gardenias, this exotic flower extract is remarkably silky, fast-absorbing and revives and repairs, leaving hair soft, easy to manage, shiny and fragrant.
Dragonfruit : Native to Central and South America, the pitahaya fruit—more commonly known as dragonfruit, is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that help to repair and nourish hair for lustrous, healthy-looking locks.
Camélia oil : Derived from the seeds of the Japanese Camélia flower, this revered beauty secret of the Geishas is a light, non-greasy emollient rich in vitamins A, B & E, and has been used for centuries to add moisture, elasticity and shine to hair.
As the directions suggest, I just dispense a small amount of this dry oil and distribute evenly throughout towel dried hair, adding more as needed. Not only does this dry oil penetrate quickly to deliver moisture and reduce drying time without making my strands look or feel greasy but also adds shine and tames frizz and fly-a-ways. And it’s light’n sweet fruity-floral scent is lovely!
Price & Availability : Natural Essentials Nourishing shampoo & conditioner are $5.99 each for 10.5 oz and the Healing dry oil is $9.99 for 1.5 oz. These are available for purchase at select Walgreens, Harmon Discount and Bed Bath & Beyond stores.
All Natural Essentials products are made in the United States of America and not tested on animals.
