Cruelty-free Haircare By Maria Nila

It may sound a little trivial, but my relationship with my hair is something of a constant struggle. Should I keep it short, or let it grow? Keep things natural or colour it all? I suppose you could refer to me as a yo-yo hair-haver, in that I’ve changed my style a lot over the years.

Since switching to a cruelty-free lifestyle, I’ve found it difficult to find a shampoo that works for my fine, greasy hair. I tried a few high street brands, but I found that they felt heavy in my locks, and didn’t seem to clean them at all. The whole situation kind of had me pulling my hair out, tbh. So when I heard about the Maria Nila vegan haircare range, I was super excited to try it out.

As I was visiting in-laws in Sweden recently, I figured it made sense to shop the range on its home soil (weight limit, schweight limit). I headed to a small salon in Stockholm and picked out the Pure Volume shampoo and True Soft masque. I got lucky with the exchange rate but, regardless, this is not the cheapest range, so I was all the more hopeful that it’d work.

So far, I am enjoying using both products. The Pure Volume shampoo smells great and lathers up well, and once I’ve blow dried my hair I can feel a difference in volume and thickness. I have found that my hair is even less manageable than usual on day 2, and I wonder if it’s because the product is causing a bit of a buildup. However, I’m going to try to use less of it and see how it goes.

Having ditched daily conditioning a while back, I was happy to invest in a treatment to use weekly. The True Soft masque feels ever so luxurious going on, and I’ve found that a little goes a long way. I may have left it in for longer than the recommended 5-10 minutes, but my hair did feel clean and soft once I’d dried it.

A review of these products would not be complete without mentioning the gorgeous packaging. Soft, pastel shades and simple shapes and design – it’s as if they were made with bloggers in mind!

I will definitely keep using these two products, and am excited to switch it up and try some other products in the range.
