Speed Review: Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Shampoo & Conditioner


I've been a fan of Trichologist range, Philip Kingsley, for years. In fact, I recommended it when my hairdresser was setting up her own salon & seeking a range which placed an emphasis on scalp health and she now stocks the products. One of my favourites from within the range is the No Scent No Colour Shampoo and Conditioner so for today's review, I wanted to share my thoughts.

No Scent No Colour Shampoo and Conditioner were created for those with the most sensitive, delicate or easily irritated scalps, who are often unable to tolerate formulas with fragrance or strong surfactants. In fact, the products are even described as being gentle enough for use by those undergoing chemo or radiation therapy.

Presented in boxes, the bottles are minimalist and reflect the No Scent No Colour name thanks to the simple design. I'd prefer there to be an easier way to distinguish between the bottles in the shower, although they are functional for use, particularly considering the formula of each of the products.

As the name suggests, No Scent No Colour Shampoo is a clear, unfragranced gel. Whilst some may feel that the lack of fragrance diminishes the indulgence factor, it didn't bother me. Despite being free from SLS and SLES, the shampoo produces an impressively generous lather meaning that a little goes a long way. As a shampoo, it inherently rinses out easily. I've been highly impressed by Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Shampoo, which leaves my hair feeling clean without irritating my sensitive scalp (of course, everyone is different but I personally haven't experienced any issues).

No Scent No Colour Conditioner is a gel cream with a lightweight texture. Again, it's unscented. I found it easy to work through my hair and also to rinse out, without any residue. It didn't irritate my sensitive scalp but left my hair looking sleek and feeling silky soft. It was left manageable and I liked that my fine hair wasn't weighed down, although those with very dry or damaged hair may find that they need a richer formula.

As a salon brand, Philip Kingsley products aren't the cheapest. No Scent No Colour Shampoo is £17 and the Conditioner is £20, each at 250ml. However, I do feel that the price reflects the quality and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the No Scent No Colour Shampoo and Conditioner, particularly to anyone who suffers from sensitivity.
