Intelligent Nutrients Shampoo & Conditioner

Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic Shampoo

Intelligent Nutrients, Harmonic Shampoo

The first thing I noticed when using this is that it doesn’t foam up at all so I had difficulty spreading it through my hair. The second thing I noticed was the feel of peppermint oil on my eyeballs, or rather how it would feel if my eyeballs were mounted on top of an alpine ridge in an ice storm. Then I realised my hair had turned to the texture of raffia and had become a matted impenetrable mass. At this point I was nearly in tears, wether it was because I was painfully rinsing the shampoo out of the knots or because of the peppermint fumes, I’m not sure. Major product fail!

As soon as I opened the lid I could smell the peppermint oil. “No, not again!” my eyes pleaded. I decided just to put a tiny amount of this on a small bottom section of my hair to test it. I can report it was really moisturising but left that section smelling of extra strong mints – very attractive. To counter the effects of the shampoo (and to even be able to get my fingers through the massive tangled knot that was now my hair) I used a thick creamy hair mask instead of this conditioner.

I really love the ethics of Intelligent Nutrients, they are BUAV approved and Soil Association approved which tells me they genuinely care about our planet. This makes me want to give them another chance and try some different products in the future.
