Haircare Review: Naked Brunette Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner

Friday, 25 October 2013


Last month I raved about the Naked Body Washes, and this month I've been trialling the new Naked Brunette Radiance Shampoo & Conditioner.  There are lots of haircare lines specifically targeted at brunettes (as there are for blondes, redheads etc too!), and I've had success in the past with the DGJ Organics Glossy Brunettes range.  So what do I think of Naked's offering to us brown haired lovelies?

Naked's Brunette Radiance duo has been especially formulated to bring out the best in all brunette shades from dark espresso to light hazelnut, and works equally as well for natural and coloured hair.  Both the shampoo and conditioner are 97% natural and feature botanical extracts of Elderberry, Sage and Black Tea to moisturise and condition, whilst adding lots of shine to enhance brunette hair tones.

Like many shampoos for brunettes, this one is brown in colour, and has a subtle natural/herbal scent which must come from the plant botanicals used.  The formula is SLS, sulphates, petrochemicals and parabens free.  I applied a small amount to wet hair and liked how it lathered up quite well for a natural shampoo (you don't get a huge amount of foam, but there's enough IMO).  I didn't experience any irritation to my sensitive scalp and found it to be mild but effective.  My hair was left feeling clean and my scalp refreshed.

The matching conditioner comes packaged in an easy to squeeze out tube (why don't more haircare brands do this? Kudos Naked!), and like the shampoo, it's free from SLS, sulphates, petrochemicals and parabens.  It smells a little less herbal than the conditioner, and I can detect the use of some kind of parfum in it, but overall it's a pleasant scent.  Formula wise, it's got a nice creamy, medium thick consistency (like a mainstream conditioner) which was easy to apply.  I left it on my lengths and ends for a couple of minutes as usual, rinsed and then allowed it to air dry naturally.  My hair was left feeling soft and silky, with a lot more shine and minimal frizz!  

All in all, a fab haircare duo for brunettes to try out, with purse friendly prices to match - that gets a big thumbs up from me!

Available online at nakedbodycare.com and at Boots (stores nationwide & online).

Do you use haircare specifically for your hair colour?

  7. I really love their body wash and now that I've read this I'm definitely going to try it out! They don't sell them in my local boots though so I'll have to have a look online! x

  8. Alas, I found this one just didn't work with my hair, for whatever reason. Dried out my hair and scalp, massive itchy patches of dandruff and split ends everywhere where there were none before!

    I'm going to go get my ends trimmed a month after starting this shampoo...maybe I should not have stuck with it, but I hate throwing things away and a fair few reviews I've read online seemed to indicate that hair 'got worse before it got better' but it's been 6+ weeks and I'm still waiting for it to get better...and my newly-acquired split ends are just irretrievably broken and coarse, now. My next shampoo will be something soothing for my scalp, and in the meantime it's off to the salon to cut away the bits that couldn't be saved by hair masques or argan oil. This may well be the Marmite of shampoos.

    1. I'm sorry to hear this didn't work for you! I've had similar things happen with a lot of mainstream shampoos which is why I switched to SLS free, but your experience goes to show that everyone's hair is different and reacts to products in different ways x
