Speed Review: Living Nature Nourishing Conditioner

I'm always looking for ways to make my beauty regime more natural and haircare is undoubtedly one of the most difficult areas in which to do this. With this in mind, I was excited to try Living Nature's Nourishing Conditioner.
The 100% natural brand hails from New Zealand and although I'd heard of it before, I wasn't familiar with the range. During the course of my research I was impressed to note how extensive the range is, with over 120 products. I really like the concept. The products are inspired by native plants from New Zealand, which due to its unique geographical location is home to 85% plants found nowhere else on earth.

Living Nature Nourishing Conditioner contains Active Manuka Honey and Larch Tree Extract to moisturise.
The packaging isn't much to look at- it's a little basic for my liking and frankly, feels a little cheap but it's functional nonetheless with a handy flip top lid for easy dispensing.
I liked the creamy yet lightweight texture of this which meant that it was easy to apply evenly. The scent is quite a strong, botanical fragrance which I suspect would be offputting to many. Having said this, I couldn't detect it once my hair was dry.
My big problem with this is that I found it incredibly difficult to rinse out and even when I was sure it must have washed out, I could still feel a residue in my hair once dried and styled.
I wanted to give this a fair test so stuck with it for as long as I could bear but sadly, it just wasn't for me and I couldn't wait to end the trial. At over £10 for 200ml, I find this overpriced and feel that you'd be better off investing elsewhere. However, I still feel that their skincare might be quite good so perhaps worth checking out if you did want to try this brand. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
