Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Shampoo & Conditioner



Looking for a new , natural shampoo to treat your color treated locks gently ? Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Hair Defense might be the answer.

I  used Nature's Gate  shampoo years back and loved how my hair looked and felt with it.  I loved the natural ingredient list too. It's been awhile but I got reminded when I tried this new duo.

Pomegranate Sunflower was created specifically for color treated hair  but you can you use it even if yours isn't color treated ( mine isn't). It is of course sulfate free  and protects against environmental stresses . Sunflower and grapeseed extracts help against color fading and add shine.


After using , my hair felt lighter than usual while still having plenty of volume, seemed brighter  and with  more shine.  The  clean , light feeling lasted over a couple days  as well.

Note that the shampoo lathers really well. Often sulfate free ones don't but this gives you that lather up . The conditioner is a medium weight. If you have dry hair you might need something heavier. For slightly oily to normal, it should be just right .

Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Shampoo is $ 7.79
Nature's Gate Pomegranate Sunflower Conditioner is $ 7.79
