A'Kin Shampoo + Conditioner ft. My Pure
I'm always on the look out for natural shampoo and conditioners as I obviously want to keep my hair as healthy as it can be and natural products seem to be the way go to. I love the Lush solid shampoo bars which I really need to buy again but I haven't tried many others; so when I had the opportunity to pick a couple of items from the My Pure website I thought I'd try some natural haircare.

*A'kin Ylang Ylang Shampoo (£10, 225ml)
I haven't tried anything from this brand before but I have seen it on various natural beauty blogs and websites so I thought I'd give it a go. The shampoo contains pure active botanics, it's sulphate free and it's also paraben free. It's for coloured treated hair which mine is and so far so good. Natural shampoos tend to be a little disappointing and they don't tend to lather well, from my experience anyway but this one lathers pretty well. It smells so nice, very earthy and natural but subtle. I've been using the combo for the past couple of weeks and they have been working really well! Overall rating:  ★★★★☆, 4/5.

*A'kin Avocado & Calendula Conditioner (£10, 225ml)
My obsession with avocados has obviously extended to beauty products now too! I have heard great things about avocado oil in beauty products, especially skincare and haircare so I was excited to give this a go. The conditioner is also natural, paraben free, sulphate free and cruelty free which is amazing. The smell, again, is so nice, natural and floral. Out of the two products, I do like the conditioner more as it leaves my hair so smooth, tangle free and soft! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Have you tried anything from this brand? Have you tried any natural shampoo/conditioners? 


  1. i find the exact same thing, natural shampoo dont lather well which off putting but nice that this works well :)

  2. These sound lovely and yes, a lot of natural shampoos for me don't lather up great either, so this one sounds promising. xx
