Nine Naturals Review & Giveaway

Finding a natural shampoo that works well for you is a very hard task, at least in my experience. I've tried several over the last few years, some horrible and some OK. I've been pretty happy with what I had been using recently but when I heard about Nine Naturals, I knew I had to give it a try.

Nine Naturals has an all natural shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for the pregnant woman in mind:

For beauty, we know that moms want to look and feel good during pregnancy. So each of our products is designed to address your special needs. Our natural plant oils hydrate and soften, wheat proteins bring extra shine and pure mint helps fight fatigue.

For baby, pre-natal safety is your number one concern. So, we kicked out the chemicals that are suspected to cause harm. That means no parabens. No phthalates. No sulfates. No DEA. EVER. We don’t compromise on this. There are chemicals in many beauty products that can lead to birth defects or act like hormones that interfere with the normal reproductive system. You don’t want that and neither do we. We set our standards high so that you can be assured that no matter which Nine product you use, you are doing all that you can to err on the side of caution.



All Nine Natural products are free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicone and DEA. Isn't that comforting to know? They are also Vegan and cruelty free.

So I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical of these before I tried them. For starters, the minty scent had me a little worried. I am not really a fan of mint, I am more of a citrus kind of girl. But I was truly presently surprised by the mint scent of Nine Naturals. The majority of days I end up showering at night once all the boys are in bed. The invigorating mint definitely gives me a little wake up. And I love that the scent lasts in my hair for quite a while. Second is that this is a "moisturizing" shampoo and conditioner and I have pretty oily hair. This is one of the reasons why I have such a problem finding a natural shampoo that works for me. However, I am absolutely having no oil issues with Nine Naturals and I have been using it for 2 weeks.

If you have tried natural shampoos before then you know that most do not lather very well. Now I know this is no indication of whether or not the shampoo is effective, but I personally NEED that lather to work it through my thick hair and for me to feel clean. Combine low lather with our hard well water and well, I end up using more shampoo then I should. In contrast, the Nine Naturals shampoo lathers very well, better than other natural shampoos that I have tried. And the lather is very thick, which I love. There is no need for me to use extra shampoo or for me to wash a second time, which I had been doing in the past. I am definitely very happy with my Nine Naturals shampoo and conditioner and plan on using them for a long time. Great stuff!

  29. sulfates are an inexpensive, harsh detergent that is frequently used in shampoos and body washes-it is used to help make foam and can actually dry out your hair in addition to doing other damage.
