We all know how much I love discovering new haircare products especially when they are cruelty free and vegan friendly. I was more than happy to be given the opportunity to test out the new Herbal Collection from Hempz.
Hempz is a brand that I’ve tried a lot of over the past year. All of their products are enriched with 100% pure natural Hemp Seed oil which is known for high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals making it a really well nourishing ingredient for any formulation.
The Herbal Haircare Collection is made up of five different products that include: Shampoo and Conditioner, Dry Shampoo, Workable Hairspray and Flexible Styling Sculpt all of which share a delicious Hemp and citrus scent. As I mentioned before, the whole collection is cruelty free, vegan friendly and also free from sulphates and parabens.
The Hempz Shampoo & Conditioner have been specially formulated with gentle cleansers to not only help maximise the life of coloured hair but to aid the condition, soften and smooth. The Hemp Seed oil helps to nourish and strength your locks leaving them looking healthier and shiny. On using the products, the first thing you notice is how amazing they actually smell. Similar to other Hempz products I’ve used in the past, the scent was like a tropical paradise leaving quite a fruity scent. The shampoo foams up extremely well which is something that many other sulphate and paraben free shampoos struggle with. Both formulations are rich and thick to help de-tangle and calm frizzy hair as well as being able to seal in moisture. Another issue I’ve struggled with when using a natural haircare combo is that my hair used to get greasy quite quickly but after using the Hempz Shampoo & Conditioner, I can go up to a week without washing my hair which is brilliant for natural oils. My hair still looked and felt great after day four.
Next up was the Workable Hairspray which is designed to add body and volume. I’ve never really had a memorable experience when using hairspray in the past but that’s probably because I hardly ever used it. My hair is extremely frizzy and it gets worse due to humidity so when I heard the Hempz Hairspray works to guard against dryness, humidity and control frizz, I was excited to give it a go. I noticed that even after a full day of shooting photos or working, my hair style for that day would still be in tact which is fantastic! As far as controlling the frizz is concerned, it does do a fab job but I’m not sure whether it is a mixed combination of the hairspray and other products.
The final product I was able to try was the Flexible Styling Sculpt. Not going to lie to you, I was a bit confused when I first received this product mainly because of texture and formulation of the product. Firstly, a little goes a long way. It helps to provide hair with moisture, shine and protection whilst controlling frizz and combating dry hair. I’ve got to be honest with you, when I first started using the product I wasn’t sure whether I loved it or hated it until I went back to using it a couple of weeks ago and realised how much I’ve missed it. I melt a little bit in between my palms and then smooth it through the ends of my hair. It controls my frizz and emphasis my natural curls.
Overall, I am really impressed with the Hempz Herbal Haircare Collection. The products I’ve tried have been amazing and I would definitely recommend them if your wanting to try something a little bit more luxurious. As I mentioned in my previous Hempz post (read here), I love the products that they come out with and would love to try their other products including their Aftersun and Milk & Honey Range.
