Okay, so I’ll admit that it might seem a tad unusual (and maybe a little odd) to put garlic and cactus in your hair but I’ll try anything in the name of achieving thick, long and healthy hair! So when these Vatika samples popped through my letterbox, I couldn’t wait to see whether these invigorating ingredients made any difference!
In aptly designed green packaging, the Vatika Naturals range is focused on anti-breakage, repairing and restoring weak and fine hair (which I unfortunately suffer from) and helping you achieve the hair you never thought you’d have. It all sounds very good to me!
The Wild Catcus, Anti-Breakage Shampoo has a really fresh scent and thick texture, which softens the roots of your hair from the very first application. It cleans away any grease or flaky bits on your scalp (which is a bonus) but doesn’t weigh it down with product or prevent you from achieving volume in the styling stage. I’ve been using this for a couple of weeks now (every other wash) and I’ve noticed an improvement in the number of knots I used to get, as well as the elasticity and hydration.
The Garlic Hair Oil was the product I noticed the most difference with however, as despite it being very hydrating – it doesn’t leave your hair with a greasy texture, or oily ends (the same kind of effect as a dry oil). It does live up to it’s name and smell like garlic however it’s all worth it when you see the split ends merge back together and your hair become far more silky soft at the ends. For me, I’m obsessed with achieving Londoner hair – looking like you’ve stepped out of the salon after every blow dry – and with this product, I’m well on my way.
Other scents (or flavours) in the range, include Black Olive & Almond, Lemon & Tea Tree Oil and Henna & Olive – so if you’re into unusual (but effective) combinations, this is certainly one to try. They are all aimed at targeting the removal of dandruff – which is really useful for me as otherwise, I’m stuck with Head & Shoulders, but the scents and other effects are far more superior.
At £2.99 and £3.49 respectively, these are products you can afford to trial without any expensive commitments – and I can certainly vouch for what they say on the packaging!
Have you ever tried this range before – or have you bought any unusual ingredient based haircare products? I’d love to hear from you!
