We’ve all tried a hair product that someone else raved about, only to find it’s not the one for us, so I’m excited to discover Swedish hair care brand, Maria Nila, with a wide range of colour-protecting shampoos, conditioners and treatments to suit very specific hair needs. Structure repair, volume, colour refresh and hair loss are among the issues targeted by the sulphate and paraben free line, made with 100% vegan ingredients. I’ve been trying out the Luminous Colour range, with a colour guard and antioxidants of pomegranate to preserve colour and shine.
I’ve really enjoyed using these and am especially fond of the Luminous Colour Masque with blackberry extract, which leaves my hair extra soft and shiny. Designed to be used between the shampoo and conditioner, this feels rich, yet doesn’t weigh my hair down (unlike another one that I was lamenting about on twitter recently!).
I’m excited to try Colour Refresh next, with temporary pigments that last between 4-10 washes, available in 13 shades including 3 for us often neglected redheads, yay! It’s not long since I had my colour done so will give this a go in a few weeks and report back. There’s also a huge range of styling products from Volume Spray to Salty Cream - how cool does that sound?!
I love the personal touch to this brand, whose products are all developed and manufactured in Sweden by a team with 40+ years’ experience. The simple yet styling packaging is spot on too.
