You might like your hair wavy or straight, virgin or highlighted… But there’s one thing that nobody wants in their hair – brass. Brassiness typically refers to an excess of unwanted warm tones in the hair. This usually happens if your hair is damaged or just has a lesser amount of melanin to protect it. This way, it easier absorbs pollution, heat, hard water residue, and other brass-causing elements. It’s not to say that all warm tones are undesired, but unless you specifically want your hair to have an orange, copper, or yellow tint, chances are you’re familiar with the antidote – the purple shampoo. Still, to this day, it takes some serious hunt to find a good, organic purple shampoo, so I’m extremely excited to share about NATULIQUE and their Pure Silver* range!
Chances are that unless you happen to go to a hair salon, in which the professional hairdressers use this brand, you’ve never heard about NATULIQUE. That’s because NATULIQUE is a professional haircare brand, meaning all their hair colors are strictly for professional use. However, their organic haircare products are available for everyone interested in caring for hair. All NATULIQUE products are certified by 360BIOCERT standard, representing a requirement level superior to conventional regulations governing cosmetics. It guarantees ingredient integrity, cosmetic regulation, no animal testing, sustainable packaging, quality control, and ingredients from organic farming.
Pure Silver Platinum Blonde Organic Hair Shampoo is a vegan brass-neutralizing shampoo with certified organic blueberry, mango, and aloe vera extracts. I was very excited but wary to try this purple shampoo. Simply because some shampoos of that kind gave my hair purple hues, and I had no wish to encounter that again. To my joy, the hair never went purple. Instead, the shampoo tones them to lovely ash! I have highlights, but even my root growth was toned (I have naturally grey hair in my roots mixed with highlights, so a lovely cool tone is more than welcome)!
Another thing that I really like is that the shampoo isn’t exceedingly moisturizing. It’s just the right balance of moisture and volume. Yes, my hair ends are dry, but the roots get upset when loaded with a highly moisturizing shampoo. Also, the shampoo adds an instant brightness to the hair, making it look more healthy and youthful. You can definitely feel it is a professional product.
Another item from the Pure Silver range is the Anti-Yellow Organic Hair Conditioner with certified organic apricot kernel oil, almond oil, olive fruit oil, sunflower seed oil, and licorice root extract. I must confess that I usually don’t buy purple conditioners because most of the time, purple shampoo alone is enough (and sometimes even too much) to reduce brassiness. However, I was intrigued to try the Pure Silver duo in action together and then separately with other products to see how they work. As expected, the conditioner adds some coolness to the hair. Compared to the shampoo, it’s also has a more thick consistency. But nevertheless, because my hair is damaged from the heat styling, I wish the conditioner would provide a bit more nourishment.
I love this Platinum Blonde Anti-Yellow Organic Hair Mousse! It works as a leave-in conditioner, which is a great extra step for detangling the hair. It also visibly adds more brightness and oomph to the hair by slightly toning it. It adds some hydration to the hair but does not make hair stick into strands like some other mousses do. A really delightful addition to my hair care routine.
