Haircare review: Klorane Laboratories


Welcome to my site, friends!
This is my first haircare review ever, and it’s on Klorane haircare products. I have naturally black hair that has been bleached multiple times over the last four years and it is highly porous, fragile, and dry.  I need to be pretty selective about the products that I use on my hair and I take various vitamins and supplements for my hair (and health).

To be honest with you all, I didn’t know much about Klorane as a brand at all. I had seen it in a French pharmacies in Paris last year, but never thought to try them out.  The lovely Klorane UK team brought the brand to my attention again and I’m writing this review on my thoughts about their pomegranate range and of course, their popular dry shampoo with nettle.

Klorane Shampoo with Pomegranate is formulated for colour-treated hair. It claims to enhance colour to make it last longer, increasing vibrancy and reducing dullness. Their website states that the gentle cleansing formula is enriched with repairing agents and Moroccan pomegranate extract, which is traditionally known to be naturally rich in tannins (found in fruits) that bind the colour and prevent fading. Hair should regain softness and become easy to style. As well as this, the formula is silicon-free.

I used the pomegranate shampoo and conditioner over four weeks and I liked the results. The products left my hair smelling and feeling great. I can’t tell you whether the products had much ‘colour-locking’ technology working, but I can tell you that what the shampoo gave my hair a little more volume and thickness.

As I said earlier, my hair has been heavily treated and is quite dry, so the conditioner wasn’t the greatest for my hair type. However, this is a nice conditioner with natural ingredients and works well with the shampoo. I use this conditioner but then I use a richer conditioner or treatment masque to provide more moisture as I feel this isn’t moisturising enough. As well as this, I typically use a hair oil after blow drying my hair to give it more moisture and shine.
Overall the conditioner works really well with the shampoo and will not weigh the hair down or leave a buildup.
I would be really interested to try out their mango hair mask and their hair oils and see how those products affect my hair.

The Klorane dry shampoo with nettle is fantastic. This is the best dry shampoo I have ever tried. Super easy to apply, smells fresh and doesn’t leave a white, dusty residue on your hair and scalp. I have used quite a lot of pharmacy dry shampoos and this is a common issue. With all dry shampoo, you need to work the product in with a brush and fingertips. The Klorane dry shampoo really absorbs excess oils and leaves hair smelling and looking fresh. No more greasy roots between washes! Also, you can hold onto your blow dry a couple of days longer. The product keeps the greasiness away all day. I sprayed my hair at 9 am and when I came home at midnight, my hair was still feeling and looking fresh. I would definitely recommend this to everyone and will be purchasing more in future.
 What stands out to me about this brand is that they care a lot about sustainable development and the environment. Their products contain biodegradable formulas, recycled and recyclable PET bottles. It’s clear that they aim to reduce the impact of their products on the environment, which is amazing. According to their website, the products are manufactured in France, mainly in the Tarn region, in a factory registered with a HEQ (High environmental quality). Klorane is a highly eco-friendly brand. You can read more about them here.

Klorane products are very affordable too, so you won’t break the bank. The prices range from £5-8 for a bottle of shampoo or conditioner depending on which shop or site you purchase from. The dry shampoo is £6-8 from what I’ve seen online. All very reasonably priced products in my opinion.

I hope this helps those out there looking for accessible and botanical hair products. Klorane is cruelty-free and wonderfully gentle.
