I’ve gotta say, when it comes to my beauty regime the one area that often gets neglected is my hair.
I never have time to style it to perfection on a daily basis and when it comes to choosing a shampoo and conditioner I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I generally just buy whatever is on offer at Boots.
I recently came across a brand on Twitter called Yes To and was intrigued by their range of products named Yes To Carrots, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Grapefruit and Blueberries.
The brand create products that are 95% natural and that are free from parabens, phthalates, SLS and are also made with recyclable materials.
That’s not all, they are also committed to giving back a portion of their profits to the YES TO Seed Fund, whose goal is to inspire kids to lead healthier, more positive lives which is a rather nice sentiment I feel.
Now, I’ve never had a great relationship with other paraben and SLS free shampoo’s and conditioners in the past but I figured I owed it to my hair and conscience to try this brand out.
I opted for their Yes to Cucumbers Volumising Shampoo (around £8.99) and Conditioner (around £5) for normal to fine hair in the hope it could inject a bit of va-va-voom into my locks.
Firstly, they smell gorgeous! Naturally there is a delicate hint of cucumber but the overall scent is deliciously fresh and light and dare I say, natural smelling as opposed to many other shampoos that smell synthetic and strong.
The shampoo is a thick gel and as recommended I used quite a bit on my hair (but then my hair is super long).
I was VERY impressed at how it lathered into soft bubbles and when I rinsed it out my hair literally squeaked it was so clean!
I followed the shampoo with the conditioner from the same range which was relatively light in texture, so as not to weigh down your hair and contained the same delicate scent.
As soon as I rinsed the product out I could tell that my hair felt soft already and indeed I didn’t struggle too much to get my Tangle Teezer through it all!
On a whole I’m really impressed with these products. They smell beautiful and do a great job of cleansing my hair but I would say that I didn’t notice any difference in its volume. I’m neither surprised nor fussed about this though as I’ve yet to come across a shampoo that can actually boost my hair!
I’m definitely hooked and trying to decide what products I want to try from their range next, I’m thinking Yes to Tomatoes which are formulated to reduce the appearance of blemishes and help keep skin clear without over-drying.
I’ve good a feeling they will be equally great!
You can get your hands on the Yes To range of products from Boots, Waitrose, Holland and Barrett, ASOS, Feel Unique and Beauty Bay among loads other which you can check on their website.
