Naked Mild Shampoo For A Sensitive Scalp

This isn't related to what I'm about to write about but I just had the most disturbing dream where Gary Rhodes (?!?!?!) was chilling with my friends and absolutely loving it at a nightclub, lounging back with all the ladies, haha. What's worst is I was genuinely chuffed he was there. I do worry for my sanity sometimes. Especially as I haven't even seen anything with him on for absolutely ages! Anywaaaays...

I thought I'd review something I've only recently started to use again after using it a few times then banishing it to the cupboard under the sink. I bought this as now and then I have a really itchy scalp and once I'd checked that it wasn't actually nits from the little darlings I work with (I get so paranoid, I constantly check!) I bought this as I needed something really gentle and non aggravating. My scalp was feeling itchy again recently so I dug this out once more and I think I like it better than the first time I used it. As it's sulphate free it doesn't foam up as well as normal shampoos but it does say that it will lather better the second time around, which it does. However then you also run the risk of over cleaning but as it's so gentle I don't really think it's an issues. I've also found out that how well it lathers seems to depend on how greasy my hair is when I wash it and what products I've used. Works best though when your hair is really wet, sounds daft but it has to be fully saturated, as it were! This one contains neroli, from orange blossom, and oatmeal extract to help prevent a dry, red, itchy scalp. It doesn't contain any sulphates, parabens or petrochemicals either and claims to be 97% natural. I'm not normally fussed about this but when my scalps feeling delicate it matters. You can also get the matching conditioner, which I'm tempted to buy now as I do like using matching sets! It smells lovely, I think, though it might not be to everyone's taste. It is very runny however and as I have somehow managed to break the lid I have to pour it out and it can be easy to over do it and waste it all. It doesn't feel as moisturising or silky as other shampoos but once I've dried my hair it looks nice and relatively shiny. It can make my hair a bit knotty, which is another reason I want the matching conditioner, but it does seem to have calmed down my scalp and that's most important. Both shampoo and conditioner costs £4.19 from Boots.
Wanted to get the back also but my camera has a hard time focussing on writing!
I don't really know what this is meant to show you, haha, but I was trying to illustrate the runniness!


  1. Their anti-dandruff one is a little bit better for itchy scalps, just a tip :)x

    1. Oo is it? I'll look into that when I'm done with this

    2. Yep, I've tried most of their range as I've got eczema on my scalp, and it seems to be the best - plus it smells of oranges!
