I wash and blow dry my hair most days, and have it dyed every six to eight weeks. This takes a lot of moisture out of my hair. Today I’m reviewing Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry/Damaged Hair from Love Lula*. Will it restore moisture and manageability to my hair?
Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner Facts
This team of shampoo and conditioner are specially formulated for dry, coloured, chemically-treated and frequently blow-dried hair. They claim to strengthen hair and boost shine, nourish scalp and hair, and prevent scalp dryness and loss of natural oils. The shampoo has a colour-lock system and quinoa protein to help limit colour fade.They contain organic green tea, aloe vera and B vitamins.
Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo
I’ll start with the Green Tea & Orange Peel Shampoo, which is £14 for 200ml from Love Lula*. It smells lovely and lathers well. On the first shampoo you do have to put in a bit of elbow grease, but this is quiet normal for chemical-free shampoos. This is because they don’t have the harsh foaming agents of regular shampoos. It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean, without feeling stripped.
Green People Intensive Repair Conditioner
The Green Tea & Orange Peel Intensive Repair Conditioner is also £14 for 200ml at Love Lula*. It also smells great, but is a bit watery for something that should be intensively conditioning. I need a lot of this conditioner to cover my hair. This means I ended up using up the bottle of conditioner quite a bit sooner than the shampoo, even though I normally wash my hair twice per hair wash!
It leaves my hair fairly shiny and soft, and I don’t think my hair colour has faded as quickly as it has in the past.

I would buy this shampoo and conditioner again, although they don’t quite match up to my current favourite natural shampoo and conditioner from Giovanni Eco Chic.
