We are a pretty sensitive bunch in this house with my husband and youngest two being eczema sufferers and psoriasis causing regular problems for me.
Over the years I have found plentiful products that deal with sensitive skin but not so much in the realms of haircare.
I found this particularly hard with the boys as I have always been very careful to keep their baths product free so when it comes to hair washing it always has to be done before they get in the bath which they hate and just adds extra time and stress to bath time.
We were asked by the Scandinavian company Olsson to try out their haircare range that has been formulated especially for sensitive skin.
Their products have been geared towards allergy and asthma sufferers but would be suitable for the whole family to use.
All additives, perfumes and parabens have been avoided, leaving a haircare range that would cover a huge range of allergies and sensitivities.
It is a complete collection that covers cleansing, conditioning and styling and offers shampoos, conditioners, mouses, hairspray and styling wax.
I am always a little apprehensive about trying new things on the children but given they all have the seal of approval from Allergy UK it put my mind at rest and was happy for us all to see how they stood up to the test.
The volume shampoo left us all with squeaky clean hair and I didn’t miss the fact it wasn’t scented like I thought I would be.
It caused no irritation to the boys scalp or their skin even though the suds were I the bath with them for a good while.
The wash off conditioner was a great addition to our haircare routine and the addition of aloe vera and B5 left all our hair really soft and conditioned.
Number three has very unruly, long hair that always need a little extra TLC so the spray in conditioner was easily combed though and didn’t leave any sticky residue like a lot of leave in conditioners can.
The styling products were left down to my to try and first up was the spray, lift and hold mousse. Instead of spraying into your hand and applying to your hair it is sprayed directly onto the roots.
It was a little watery for my liking but still gave me good hold and was easy to blow dry once on.
With my flyaway hair a good hairspray is an everyday essential for me and Olsson have created a medium hold hairspray that didn’t sting my scalp like many hairspray a can and controlled my straggly hairs perfectly all day.
I found the whole of Olsson’s range perfect for the whole family. No irritations and perfectly cleansed and styled hair for us all!
*we were given these products for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
