Review: Naked Volume Body Building Shampoo & Weightless Conditioner.

I'm going to start off by saying that I love this shampoo and conditioner; I love the scent, I love the price and most importantly I love the fact they are 97% natural & don't contain parabens, petrochemicals or SLS. These two particular products from Naked are vegetarian friendly; some products are vegan friendly also.
For me personally I have seen a definite improvement in my skin and hair since I have started using products that are free from potential nasty ingredients. I will concede that most of the make up products I use probably contain parabens or something equally not particularly nice. However I'm getting older, (granted I'm not old just yet!), but skincare is pushing it's way up to the top of my list of things I need to be more educated about. Anyway, I've gone off on a tangent yet again, back to shampoo & conditioner.
I have fine hair that has absolutely no volume to it whatsoever - it's flat and I really don't like that so, I always tend to gravitate towards shampoos that claim to volumise and conditioners that say they are weightless.

Here's what Naked say about their Volume Body Building Shampoo:
"Give your fine hair a chance to plump up the volume for a Big Hair Day. Wheat amino acids and corn extracts help keep locks plumped up and Chicory extract helps to control the annoying flyaways you can get with finer hair. Fruit extracts full of naturally occurring AHA's lightly smooth down hair's surface scales and hair becomes soft, bouncy and a whole size bigger (but it only works in hair...)"

In my opinion this is a completely accurate description. It's not a miracle worker; my flat hair isn't magically a million times the size after using this but after my usual styling routine (which isn't anything special) I would definitely say my hair has more volume than usual & my hair is left incredibly soft and manageable.

The shampoo is a gel type of consistency.
I've read other reviews about their shampoos that have said that they don't lather but I disagree. Even though they don't contain SLS (the ingredient that makes products foam) I find if your hair is completely wet and you massage the shampoo into thoroughly, it will lather. I personally find that I get a better lather on the second shampoo.

Naked Volume Body Building Shampoo costs £3.99 for 250ml, which I have to say is a bit of a bargain! You can purchase online from the Naked website or in-store at Boots.

Here is the description for the matching Weightless Conditioner:
"Fine hair needs to be conditioned but doesn't need to be weighed down with the burden of a heavy conditioner."

This is the perfect conditioner for my hair because it is definitely weightless yet it manages to tame my locks at the same time. The consistency is quite a runny liquid but it's very easy to distribute the product in your hair. My hair is left looking sleek and soft after styling and more importantly, not weighed down & flat or full of fly away hairs. It's a winner in my book. Scent wise, both products smell natural - they smell like they're packed full of ingredients that are good for you and your hair.
  The conditioner is a white fairly runny cream consistency.

Naked Volume Weightless Conditioner
is priced at £3.99 for 250ml as well and I will be continuing to purchase these beauties over and over again.

Usually here is where I would talk about the negative points of a product, but I honestly can't think of anything. I know it can be a bit annoying when a review is only 100% positive; it makes you wonder if the person is telling the whole truth. All I can say is I purchased these products with my own money and I'm not being paid to talk about them. They're simply products that I enjoy using and maybe some of you will enjoy them too.

You can find out more about Naked Bodycare on their website http://www.nakedbodycare.co.uk/ which I think you should have a look at. They don't test on animals, their packaging is totally recyclable, where possible they source ingredients from the UK but if that's not possible then they buy from sustainable and community trade sources. They may not be what you look for in a company, but they're definitely what I look for.

Have you ever tried any Naked products?
