One of the things I love most about blogging is discovering new brands, be they makeup, skincare, lifestyle or haircare. Recently Maple Holistics, a company I hadn't come across before, got in touch to see if I wanted to try some of their haircare products. It quickly became obvious why I hadn't heard of them before - they were a US brand but keen to expand my horizons, I was definitely up for seeing what they had to offer!
Something I always look for in a brand is good ethics, so I was very happy to see that Maple Holistics is a cruelty-free, vegan-friendly brand! What's more, they focus on a holistic approach, using natural ingredients in their products.
I was kindly sent the Degrease Moisture Control Shampoo* and the Silk18 Natural Hair Conditioner to try. As excited as I was to try the Degrease shampoo (as I do have the sort of hair that gets greasy fairly quickly) unfortunately I've had to hold off using it for now, as it contains Basil Oil, which you're not supposed to use in pregnancy (as far as I know). I will be reviewing it once I've had my baby but for now you can check out this page to find out more about it.
Thankfully I was able to use the Silk18 Natural Hair Conditioner* and I'm pleased to say I love it! It's a very lightweight, yet effective conditioner that is great for locking moisture in the hair, without making it greasy. The thing I love most about it is it's sweet and calming scent, which has been creating using 100% natural vanilla. It also contains pomegranate, hibiscus and sea buckthorn, which are great for nourishing the hair, repairing damage and boosting the vitamins you need for a healthy shine.
Although I can't find them on their website, Maple Holistics also have a lovely range of lip balms made from natural ingredients, which are paraben-free, GMO-free, gluten-free and soy-free. I got to try the pomegranate flavour and to me it smells and tastes like sweeties, so I love it! Aside from the gorgeous flavour it's also extremely nourishing on the lips and wonderfully soothes the dry lips I seem to have developed during pregnancy.
In addition to these lovely products, Maple Holistic also offer a fantastic range of shampoos and conditoners designed to treat various hair conditions, as well as skincare products and bath and body products, which I'll definitely be looking into trying myself in the future!
Now I know what you're thinking, that's all very well and good but what's the point if I can't buy the products in the UK? Well the good news is that Maple Holistics products are available from Amazon UK and the brand have also told me that they are planning to launch in the UK in the very near future - so if you're into natural, cruelty-free products, I suggest you keep your eyes peeled!
