Klorane Nettle Shampoo

When I saw a tweet asking for bloggers if they wanted to try a new shampoo, specifically for those of us who have greasy roots, I quickly signed up.  Klorane Nettle Shampoo
is designed for those of us who have oily hair, and it claims to allow you to skip a day of washing due to its scalp detoxing effects. 

The description given is:

"Detox your scalp with the Klorane Nettle Shampoo, a deeply cleansing formula for those prone to oiliness.

This gentle, effective treatment shampoo gives you more time between washes, working to regularise the amount of oil your scalp produces while slowing its spread throughout the hair. The star ingredient of the shampoo is scopoletine, an extract from nettle, which restores balance to the scalp.

Hypoallergenic and extremely mild, the Nettle Shampoo enhances volume and detangles for soft and bouncy hair that lasts. After sustained use, oil secretion is regularised, enabling you to wash your hair less frequently."

Well definitely worth giving it a try which I have been doing since the middle of January because I wanted to give it a decent amount of time to test rather than using it once, claiming it is brilliant, which I don't think would be very fair.

So the shampoo itself is bright green which isn't a surprise considering it contains nettle which was chosen for its content of scopoletine, which helps regulate sebum production and restore balance to the scalp. It is also hypoallergenic and extremely mild not to mention paraben free.

When using the shampoo, I found it to be quick thick in texture, meaning you don't need to use very much.  Once it comes into contact with water it immediately lathers and there is a slight scent too it, not too plant like as I was expecting, more a fresh scent which I really like.  Easy to wash out from my hair, if I am not going anywhere I tend to let my hair dry naturally, otherwise I dry with a hairdryer.  Once my hair had dried it was really soft and whilst I have natural curls, they were no challenge for my GHDs and I could style my hair without any problems.

So how did it fair?  Well I have to admit I did and still do get that one extra day between washing if I use this shampoo, so instead of washing my hair every other day, I can leave it to be washed every two days and the greasiness is just showing rather than looking as though I have poured oil all over my head.

I think this is a fantastic product and definitely one which will remain in my bathroom for some time to come.  It is currently on offer on Escentual for £4.50 and well worth giving it a try.

Have you tried this shampoo?


  1. Good to see your review! I just put this shampoo on my Escentual wish list as my hair gets greasy very quick and I'd really like to give it longer break between washes. I'll be purchasing soon then:)

  2. Ooh I have this in my stash! I will have to give it a go once I've finished up my others :)

  3. I haven't got round to doing my review of this yet, I really should get round to it! I'm surprised yours was thick because mine was almost unusably runny and when I asked on Twitter a couple of other people said theirs was as well. I have to admit I didn't use it for that long but I really wasn't sold on it. It didn't seem to make my hair any less greasy and the time I used it my hair really didn't feel great. So not a winner for me x

  4. I don't have greasy hair but if it works I would use it.
    Doesn't look very nice though for a shampoo lol.


  5. That sounds rather interesting, but my hair is dry, not greasy. Good review :)


  6. How unusual, but this sounds just what I need for my hair at the moment. Think I may have to make a little purchase!
