Although it's still stayed quite warm, the heat wave days and random rainfall meant that my hair was in need of some attention the other week. The perfect time to try out Neal and Wolf's hair care products which I was sent to try out.
My postman brought me sample sachets of the Ritual Daily Cleansing Shampoo, Rituals Daily Conditioner, and a full size bottle of Guard, which is a heat protection spray. One of my bug bears with sample size products is that sachets have so little in them, and it's always a bit time consuming trying to get every last drop out. I also have thick hair, so my review didn't get off to the best of starts, as I didn't have enough product to cover one wash, although I still have comments to make.
I was a little sceptical at first, wondering if an everyday shampoo suitable for all hair types would suit my hair, as I normally buy products for colour treated/dry hair - but the Rituals products still promised to add moisture and shine so I was hopeful of good results after reading that Shea butter and protein complex were part of the make up of these products.
Both the shampoo and conditioner have nice subtle scents and lathered up well as I massaged them into my hair. After rinsing my hair was tangle free, and ready for drying and straightening. The heat protection spray was my favourite of the three products, which I applied generously with no hint of stickiness. After drying and straightening my hair felt nice and smooth so I was pretty pleased with the results.
I would qualify this as a partial success. the products were all good quality, as I would expect from a company founded on sound principles in hair care, and I would try out some of their other products if I had the opportunity. The heat guard protection spray performed well, and I look forward to draining my bottle, but the shampoo and conditioner are a bit beyond my budget for a regular use product, and I'd prefer something more suited to my hair type.
