I have been on the hunt for vegan shampoo and conditioner for months and have finally found the most amazing range! I have long hair and whilst I try not to wash it too often, living in a city unfortunately means that my hair can get nasty quite quickly from the pollution and change in temperature (think: air conditioning, heating and changes in climate.) Maria Nila is a Swedish hair care brand that has recently launched their Head & Hair Heal range. The products contain a blend of all natural ingredients so as to ensure your hair is not stripped of natural oils. These products are suitable for everyday use.
Active ingredients include Aloe Vera extract to treat and prevent dandruff, Oleanolic Acid to prevent hair loss and Vitamin E, Apigenin and peptides to stimulate hair follicles for increased hair growth.
After using these products my hair smells like I’ve just walked out of a salon and feels light and silky smooth, yet with volume and body. There is also a masque, which can be used 1-2 times per week, if your hair needs a little more TLC. If you’re like me, I can’t get enough of coconut oil, so if you don’t have time for a mask just massage some coconut oil on the tips of your hair.
This new range preserves hair colour and is 100% vegan and cruelty free (Leaping Bunny, Peta and Vegan Society certified - which we love!) and is sulphate and paraben free.
Maria Nila is the result of an experienced, enthusiastic team with over 40 years of experience in the industry that pride themselves on striving for environmentally friendly products. The brand has a wide range of products from hair masques to Argan oil and heat spray to salty styling cream.
To get your hands on these luxurious products, visit the Maria Nila website and change your hair care routine today!

Lately a lot of my beauty obsessions have been due to my other obsession, Instagram. Thanks to Instagram I've discovered beauty products and brands that would have otherwise never been on my radar. My most recent IG beauty product discovery is Lani Tropical Hair Treatment. I was immediately intrigued by their gorgeous beachy IG pics, amazing packaging and the fact that the hair treatment is both 100% natural, cruelty free and vegan. Getting my hands on Lani Tropical Hair Treatment was a bit more difficult than I thought and I was close to giving up. Then I just happened to walk into Urban Outfitters and almost squealed out loud when I saw that beautiful turquoise bottle sitting on the shelf in their beauty area. I've been using Lani Tropical Hair Treatment for two weeks now and absolutely love how my hair looks and feels after each use. It takes my hair from dry and dull to shiny and hydrated even after I colored my hair. I normally apply it to my dry hair, place it in a top knot and leave it in my hair for almost an entire day. If you do not have the time to leave it in your hair for that long, it is recommended that you leave it in your hair for at least 30 minutes. It's also recommended that you shampoo twice then condition as usual after using it, but depending on how my dry my hair feels, I'll just shampoo once to leave a bit of the treatment in my hair without weighing my hair down or leaving it too oily. I also love using it as both a hair treatment and curl tamer whenever I opt to leave my hair in it's naturally curly state. Please keep in mind that I have thick, highly textured hair so this may not be the case for someone with fine or even medium hair. There are not a lot of hair products that my hairstylist Pearson Knight (Elle genius awarded hairstylist) approves of, but after reading the ingredients in Lani Tropical Hair Treatment (Camellia seed oil, Coconut oil, Kukui nut oil and Macadamia nut oil) and after seeing firsthand what it has done for the condition of my hair, he encourages me to use it every time I wash my hair. He has even started using it, especially after a surf session. As I mentioned above Lani Tropical Hair Treatment can be found at Urban Outfitters online and also at the Third Street Promenade location in Santa Monica. I just hope that Urban Outfitters starts carrying the Lani Tropical Body Treatment in all stores as well, since I was too late to purchase it online before it sold out!
