Maria Nila Hair Products Review!

Hello Daydreamers!

 *This post contains PR samples, all opinions are my own as always :)

In today's post, I'm going to be talking about a wonderful hair care brand called Maria Nila.
You may or may not have heard of this company before but you certainly will be hearing more of them in the near future. They're an up and coming brand who originate from Sweeden and are new to the UK.
 I was contacted by the lovely Lauren from Sallys Salon Services was and asked if I'd like to try out a selection Maria Nila products. I'd already fallen in love with the delicate pastel packaging of these products and also noted that many of the products would be super useful to use on my clients hair so I accepted!

All this company's products are paraben and sulphate free and are all made with 100% vegan products.


The range includes 
  • Specialty shampoos and conditioners E.g colour treated hair of flat hair in need of volume
  • A range of structure repair masks 
  • And 300ml bottles of semi permanent colour refresh treatments!
Colour Refresh Treatments

So, onto the exclusive range of colour refresh products. These products temporarily refresh your hair colour or even allow you to go for something completely new (like pastel Pink for example) without having to commit to anything. They refresh and revitalize hair to give a salon finish from your home and successfully stays in your hair for 4-10 washes depending on the current condition and porosity of your hair.
This product would be great for the mobile hairdressers out there like me who have clients that are quite indecisive and are always wanting to try something new.
I received the colour refresh in 'Sand' which as you'd imagine, gives the hair a lovely beige sandy tone. For all the hairdressers out there, this colour treatment gives the hair a temporary look of base 8 with tones 32. On each bottle, the base and tone of that particular treatment is printed in the bottom right corner.

Volume Shampoo and Conditioner  

When I tried out this shampoo and conditioner, I was expecting its moisturising properties to be lacking as that's normally the case with volumising products. I was completely wrong, this pair left my hair weightless, shiny and super moisturised without it feeling 'weighed down'. The scent is delightful, the colour of both products is baby pink and a little goes a very long way. It also features a colour guard complex which means your artificial colour wont be fading any time soon!

 Structure Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

 Whilst also having the colour guard complex, the structure repair range also promises to rebuild, protect and soften damaged hair with repairing algae. I noticed that after using this, my hair was far more shiny than usual and when I was straightening it, it felt stronger (I'm not sure if I was just imagining this but it truly did feel thick and strong.)
The scent of the pair is identical and super sweet; it reminds me of dolly mixtures which I think is perfectly suited to the pastel packaging. The scent is not sickly sweet or overly pungent but it did last on my hair and I didn't even bother wearing perfume the day I used this because I already smelled sweet : ) 

Volume Hair Mask

And finally, the pure volume masque. This one is of course a part of the volume range and the scent is very similar. I'd say this one smells a little more creamy than the other products in the range and it is also far more thick than the regular conditioner. When I used this, I applied a generous amount through the mid lengths and ends of my hair, combed it with a tangle teaser, briefly warmed my hair up with my hairdryers (to open the hair cuticle) and wrapped it up in a warm towel. I left it on for 10 minuted before rinsing the masque out. This left my hair so unbelievably shiny, so smooth and freshly scented. This is my favourite product in this fabulous brand and I'd highly recommend it. 
I'm pretty sure this beaut will be featured in my August favourites!

Maria Nila is exclusive to sally stores nationwide and is also available from the Sallys website

So there we have it, my new addiction haha! 
I loooove this brand and all the products I've tried from their range have been impeccable. I'd strongly urge you give them a whirl : )
 I hope this was a helpful and interesting read for you lovely lot!
