Nettle & Lavender Nourishing Shampoo



Availability: Only 4 left in stock

A nurturing and strengthening blend of birch leaf, nettle and horsetail extracts, with added essential oils of lavender, benzoin and chamomile. This shampoo will gently cleanse your hair and scalp, and leave hair beautifully soft and shiny. Continued use will encourage and promote strong, thick and luxurious hair growth.

The Magic:

Nettle – often the bane of gardeners and young children, stinging nettle is a wonderful ingredient for hair care, and has been used for centuries to stimulate hair growth. Nettle has a reputation for counteracting hair loss, and can be helpful as prevention and remedy to dandruff. As well as all of that goodness for the scalp, nettle can also improve the feel and quality of dry and lifeless hair, making it softer and shiner.

Birch leaf – another wonderful haircare ingredient, birch leaf can help to strengthen skin tissue, tone the scalp, prevent hair loss, and leave hair soft and shiny. As well as all of that, the saponins in birch help to open up the pores of the scalp, which means that the nutrients and minerals from the nettle can penetrate deeper.

Mipa laureth sulphate – as mild an anionic surfactant as it gets. Unlike the similarly named (but much nastier) sodium lauryl sulphate, Mipa is produced from palm oil, which means it has a higher oil content. This makes it less drying and much kinder to hair and scalp. Because mipa laureth sulphate is biodegradable, this sulphate is also kinder to the environment as well.

Resident Review

Claire's review - Nettle & Lavender Nourishing Shampoo **Resident Recommended**

“I always had soft and gentle hair when I was younger. It was easy to manage, shone like a sparkling night sky, and looked great. Since having kids, my hair is thicker, randomly wavy, and does entirely what it wants. And most shampoos tend to leave it feeling all a bit mad.

Which is why I loved this Freyaluna shampoo. It smells gorgeous – totally and utterly like a bunch of lavender (but not in an older lady kind of lavender way) and feels very luxurious to use. It didn’t leave my hair feeling squeaky clean; it left my hair feeling loved and clean – an important difference. When it was dry, I could see that my hair felt less crazy; smoother, shinier and less dry without feeling heavy or saturated.

I wash my hair every second day, so the question was: will it still feel and look as clean and lovely on Day 2? I’m pleased to report that it did – in fact, my hair still felt super fresh and manageable on the second day, even after being frozen on a very chilly yet sweaty bike ride. I definitely recommend this if your hair needs some extra love.”
